  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

  8. This is a Yuuuuuuuuge pick up for Taylormade. Boosting their stable with Rahm, DJ, Tiger and now Rory? They thought the M1&M2 flew off the shelves before... 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 ti
  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

  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'
  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
  16. Love the classic look. The trade work was perfect, that color scheme is Killer! Can't wait to get some of my Own Thanks for this review! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. I always feel I have favorite golf balls depending on the club. Anyone else run into this? My favorite driving ball of all time is the Taylormade PentaTP5, the distance and control I had are like any ball I try and find. With irons I love the Snell or Nike RZN Black (2014) played the best ball-striking round of my life with that one. Played a #2 and it lasted all the way around TPC Scottsdale My wedges didn't like the PentaTP5. Ate those up like a lawnmower (the only complaint about those) I love the feel of the Bridestone B330 BEFORE the "dimple-in-dimple" design. Loved the feel

  19. It sounds cliche, but the hardest course I have ever played was the Torrey Pines South Course. My Dad and I grabbed an advanced tee time as we were staying at the La Jolla Hilton (thank goodness as there was a line of singles waiting to jump into threesomes, kind of like a bar on a Saturday night in college) The hardest part about Torrey is getting over your nerves and general giddy-ness. I was raised a golf Junkie, I have watched Tiger and Jack hit that opening tee shot with a soft draw over the right bunkers, and from the first tee box they have never looked bigger, might as well have been
  20. They're recycled, so they aren't painted over. You can smell the bleach/chlorine on them when they arrive to let you know they've cleaned them thoroughly. You will get a wide range of balls, so if you don't like "Logo balls" wouldn't recommend it. If you don't mind logos then go for it, it is a game changer and money saver. 4A quality is incredible for them, only a few with signs of a few rounds of wear.
  21. Tyler Pettit - Titleist Pro V1x Handicap or Ave score - 6.8 7 iron carry distance with current ball - 168 Trajectory - mid-High if I catch it flush Putter - Titleist Scotty Cameron GoLo 7 medium feel Snell MTB 2017 Distance - BETTER. I felt the ball carried more with the Snell. I was really happy with the flight of the ball. Didn't have much roll but the carry off the clubface made up for that Trajectory -HIGH. I kept my High trajectory with the driver. I didn't see a big change here. It feels as if the ball responds to the player. Spin SUCK BACK I saw a nice soft release with Lon
