  1. I'll start with a course called "Thunderhawk" in northern Illinois. My buddy did some research for us as we traveled to Wisconsin for the US Open and we were amazed by this track. They have a great website that grabs your interest, but it's not until you see the sign out front that you are wowed: Designed by....ROBERT TRENT JONES JR. It's a MUNI! Designed by an architecture Legend. Course was incredible, big forgiving fairways, undulating greens that rolled true. If you're in the Lake Forest, Illinois area or near it this course a Must Play Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. I'm looking to see what courses we all recommend within our individual states, or courses you've come across in your travels! Leave name, location of the club and why you'd recommend it/play it again! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  4. Strengthening your grip (not tightness on the club but an actually "strong grip") will help you control the club-face more and splash it out Players on tour that are your better bunker players always have a strong grip And Think about hitting through the sand like lighting a match. Head of the club is the match and the sand is the box Just a quick thud like you're lighting a match Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  9. I'd agree with a lot of the posts here Yeah getting out and playing more will make you more comfortable But you have to prepare for pressure as well I coach throwers for a track and field team, so much like golf of something goes wrong in the throw there is nothing but yourself to blame. It's you versus the tape measurer Much like golf, where its you vs the scorecard You have to practice pressure, but not just that. You have to practice your response to sudden change. Give yourself one ball per club. Plan out the shot you want to hit. If you don't hit it the first time, get over it and pick up the next club. Now give yourself one ball with the next club. Hit the shot you want with the next club up. Force your mind to focus harder on the shot. If it doesn't go the way you want it put both clubs away and start over with two different clubs. Follow the same pattern This moves you away from banging away, or waiting until you get the flight right. In competition there's no do overs for a missed shot and you have to be able to make a good swing after that miss, but you also have to be able to hit the next shot after a great swing and not let your chest puff too much. Just some thoughts on how to teach yourself to respond. "One of the most fascinating things about golf is how it reflects the cycle of life. No matter what you shoot - the next day you have to go back to the first tee and begin all over again and make yourself into something." --Peter Jacobson Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. If you're looking for transparency you're barking up the wrong tree with GD. Their takes on the game are just so....Digesty, as clued in by their social media pages (worth the follow for the obscurity and laughable "click-bait") They made sure to finish their review of the K-Sig with a jab at lack of developmental follow-through. It's just hard to take any of their "Hot-lists" seriously It seems to be whoever is paying for the largest ads. And the golfer "insight" (I use that term Very loosely) included on each club offers no real benefit to the reader or intrigued buyer. Stay up with MGS and you won't be disappointed from the social discussion to clear and unbiased testing that won't tell you what you want to hear but what you Need to hear Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Tyler Michigan 9 Titleist AP2 712 One Length Love the concept and am looking for an opportunity to publish a study on it Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. I'm still undecided on the TP5 I accidentally ordered them through Amazon (they had a picture of the TP5x but sent me the wrong product) I really like the feel off of hybrids and metal woods, but, ironically enough, not the driver. It truly had the "whoosh" sound off my irons ( a la the Sergio commercial) and I really liked the ball flight I was not impressed with the wedges I tried it with a ProV which hop and stopped, TP5 didn't grab, far too much rollout for a tour-caliber ball I'm waiting to try the TP5x to see if my driver and wedges like that more Again everyone's game responds differently to each ball Just didn't fit me right but worth a look Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. I'll be there for Saturday and Sunday! Driving into Milwaukee with some buddies on Friday night going to hit the town then course Saturday Whole family is meeting me at the crack of dawn Sunday for the final round See you boys there! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Called in sick and snuck in 18 at Lake Buena Vista, greens were crunchy and used rentals. This northern guy wasn't ready for the Bermuda, didn't matter 86 and perfect. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. I switched to Ogio too and couldn't be happier! There is no clanking on the clubs and my irons show no signs of it. The secret is the 14-slot bag, life changer! Just can't bring myself to use covers for the whole bag Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
