  1. I like technical instruction, and I still have to agree with this. I watch much of what goes up on Revolution Golf each day, but it never seemed to me that Foley got the idea of what a relatively short instructional video was supposed to be. Andrew Rice, for instance, will pick a single idea, and he seems genuinely happy to share it with you. The Foley videos I watched, he seemed to speak like it was an inconvenience for him to have to say these things to his audience. A matter of taste, I suppose.
  2. Yeah, you'd have to remove either the head or the grip.
  3. This is my recommendation as well. I think you saw how this came out on my MLA. I used this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-1-Heat-shrink-Tubing-5-8-10FT-Black/263350448613
  4. Yeah, though I have to admit a tiny bit of guilt. I ended up being the only bidder on the set, which is how I got it at that price. As soon as the auction ended, though, the seller sent me a message saying that it would be a couple of days before he'd be able to ship the irons, as he was in the hospital with his wife for the birth of their first child.
  5. Too much matching! :-) The clearance rack bag has to match, but not that perfectly :-) Sent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
  6. The irons were an eBay purchase: $83 shipped. I'm pretty proud of that one
  7. I think Bryson needs to be something with all the mechanical parts exposed, some kind of dune buggy welded together by a guy in his garage building his vision of a perfectly functional vehicle. Sent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
  8. One of my favorite threads at the "other" golf forum is this: http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/topic/967261-why-is-it-so-hard-to-resist-the-poser-bag/ But I have to admit: I'm guilty. Maybe it's the low-grade OCD. Maybe it's just an excuse to buy more clubs. OK, it's definitely an excuse to buy more clubs. But I'm by no means a top level poser. No sir: that takes the kind of cash I'm neither able nor willing to burn. I'm a clearance rack poser bag builder. At this point, I have two such bags. First, the Adams: XTD 9°, stiff stock Red Tie Super LS 15°, stiff stock Kuro Kage red 20°, stiff stock (whatever it is) dHy 24°, Grafalloy ProLaunch Red (built from components from Diamond Tour) XTD Tour irons, 4-GW XTD Forged SW-LW A7 60 putter All of these were purchased in the last couple of years, cobbled together from clearance sales (the irons), components (hybrid, wedges), eBay (fairway), and Craigslist (putter, $20). And just recently completed, the Callaway bag (which is also my wannabe player bag: Big Bertha Alpha 816 Double Black Diamond 9°, stiff Speeder X2Hot Pro 17°, stiff Aldila Tour Green XR Pro 20°, stiff something Prototype Utility 24° 2009 X Forged 4-PW, Project X 5.5 Flighted X Forged 50° MD3 54° PM Grind 58° Odyssey Works Versa 7 Tank Anyone else playing the single manufacturer, but cobbled together from outdated model year bag?

  9. We do here, though not as much in these winter months. Sent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
  10. If you've got a 50°, you could send it to me :-) I'm always looking to be helpful that way. Sent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
  11. I'm just going to assume that anyone clicking "like" on the posts in this thread means something like, "Dude, that's awful, get well soon," and not, "I think sickness is awesome!"
  12. My wife and I have four kids, and we are spending our days recycling the same cold/cough through our family.
  13. Slightly less west. Still in Michigan, but only just. Wakefield. Sent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
  14. Feeling your pain on the west end of the Upper Peninsula. I always consider April golf to be a bonus. Hoping to grab a round or two during some travel this spring. Sent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
  15. This absolutely must be a candidate for the GolfBusters series here.
  16. And it's fixed. Someone flipped a switch somewhere. :-) Sent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
  17. I have an OptiShot, which would certainly be at the low end of the simulator market, a step up from Wii Golf. Like others have said, it's a fun diversion, and it's a very rough approximation of golf. The OptiShot is absolutely not suited for dialing in numbers, because it doesn't detect ball flight at all. But it does a reasonable job at sensing face-to-path, which is not insignificant. I found that because the OptiShot doesn't care about contact, when I finally got to golf again in the spring of this year, my low point had become erratic. I'm making a conscious effort this winter to focus on impact with it. My boy and I normally play 18 together on the OptiShot each Saturday. Living in the very far north, we're likely five months from golf outdoors here, so being a golf nut here means you've gotta do something.
  18. Yes, it is. Latest try: uninstalling and reinstalling the app, and rebooting the phone. Not having any luck. It won't let me log back in.
  19. Probably for the same reason that there's a Cleveland putter headcover in the picture, even though the press release doesn't say he's playing a Cleveland putter
  20. Hmm. Not working for me so far. I actually just went through and wiped all the app data, to see if that would help. It didn't.
  21. Anyone else having issues logging in with the app today? It prompted me to login again this morning, but on every attempt, I'm getting a message that says "Unauthorized app detected."
  22. Still relatively new to the forums here, but I've enjoyed the content on the main page for years, so I'm a first-time donor this year. Sent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
  23. I picked Jordan, for boring reasons: I suspect he's got the least volatility of any of the top guys. I can easily see any of the big guns on this list having a killer year and ending up number 1. I can also see any number of them going down with injuries or inconsistent play. Meanwhile, I would anticipate Jordan just continuing to do his thing. So for me, he's kind of a default, safe pick.
  24. As much as I wanted to use the grip that came with the Cleveland (a standard blue pistol grip), I've become far too accustomed to the SuperStroke-size grips. The SS Flatso 1.0 that was standard on the Toe Up was really comfortable for me, and the flat seam fits neatly down the lifeline of my left hand. So I get some of the benefits of the idea of the Flat Cat, in a design that complements the look of the classier putter. Or, at least that's what I'm going to keep telling myself.
  25. This is a painful question for me, because it exposes something irrational about my approach to golf equipment. It would totally make sense to put a grip that I like on a putter that I like. Yep, that definitely makes sense. But here's the thing: the Cleveland looks really classy and understated. And the Flat Cat is loud and ugly. And I just can't do it. It was easy to do on the MLA, because the Flat Cat and the MLA share the same offensive color scheme. Is anyone else here sympathetic to my plight? Do your heads, shafts, and grips have to complement each other in any way? Or is everyone here just driven by the performance?
