  1. Hold it with the sensor down like it's in your bag, it should put it in "sleep mode". I have the Arccos 360 system and it tells you this right on the box. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  2. For those with the BOA system, is it just me does it feel like it only tightens up near the top and the bottom of the "laces" still feel looser? I prefer for all of the laces to feel nice and tight around my foot going back to my basketball and football days. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  3. Greywalls in Marquette, Michigan Probably 50 foot elevated tee with Lake Superior in the background. Don't know why it's rotated. I tried flipping it.
  4. It's listed as a titallium insert so I'm assuming it's a polymer. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  5. I've heard to use that for stuff like paintfill. Do you think it will affect the insert at all?
  6. Hello, I recently found a 2008 Taylormade Rossa Monza Itsy Bitsy Spider with the plumbers neck for $28. I'm looking to refinish it and black it out myself. I'd like a matte black finish on it and I will most likely just buy a black shaft rather than try to paint it. This will be my first time every doing any kind of cosmetic work on clubs. I haven't even paintfilled before... Anyways, I have 2 main questions that I need help with: 1) What could I use/do to get the paint off of the insert without removing it from the head and replacing. 2) Since it is made out of both stainless steel and aluminum, how should I go about getting the current paint off and prepping it for the new paintjob. Also any general tips regarding how to do it, what specific products to use and what not is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  7. I listen to music whenever I go to the range alone because if I'm working on a specific thing, I put the same song on repeat. When I get to the course, I just sing the song the hum the beat and it not only takes me out of the situation and focuses me on the task, it helps to ingrain the feelings I was working on at the range. I use this most often when working on sand shots or a new pitching technique. Also as others have said, if you don't have workout earbuds that wrap around your ear, just run them inside your shirt and keep your phone in your pocket. That's why I typically do.

  9. I love plumbers neck mallet putters. I use an Odyssey #7 CH. Unfortunately this seems to be a niche style putter so I'm going to keep using this one until I can somehow save up enough money for a custom putter. Sent from my SM-G900R4 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  10. I really dislike going to a tough engineering school because I'm either in class, doing projects/labs or studying for some test or quiz every week. I only get to play on the weekends but luckily I only have 2 more weeks for summer. I'm also transferring to study professional golf management so hopefully I'll actually see a course at least once during the week next year. Sent from my SM-G900R4 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  11. I went from poorly fit GI irons to completely custom fit players irons (CB versions because I still wasn't sure I would be able to consistently strike blades in crunch time during tournaments) and I am hitting better more consistent shots as well as scoring better. I went from shooting low to mid 80's to mid-high 70's and now that I'm getting my swing back after a terrible knee injury I'm getting into the consistent mid 70's with occasional low/high. With my driver, I went from a spin machine regular flex off the rack at 9.5* to a tipped stiff 8* that never misses the fairway and gets an extra 30 yards because my spin is under control. My putter is bent 2* upright and it's been my most consistent putter ever. Bottom line, if you're getting new clubs, get custom fit. Especially if you plan to play competitively or take golf seriously and not just play one round every couple weeks or months. It may not help in itself like mine did but as others have said, your confidence will be through the roof knowing that your clubs are made specifically for your one unique swing.

  12. One of the quotes I think about whenever I'm not playing well is from The Legend of Bagger Vance. Where Bobby Jones can hit 3 bad shots and hit one good shot to have a good hole. It's not over until it's over.
  13. What a couple of friends would do to get better was we would challenge each other to hit a certain shot into the green or off the tee. For example rather than hit a straight ball, we would challenge each other to hit a high fade, a low draw, or club up twice. If you hit the shot but missed the target (green or fairway), you got 1 point. If you hit shot and hit the target, you got 3 points. If you didn't hit the shot but hit the target you didn't gain or lose a point but if didn't hit the shot and missed the target you lost a point with a minimum score of 0. The one with the lowest score had to buy drinks after the round and the one with the highest score got a pass for the next round so even if they got last they wouldn't have to pay.
  14. I started playing when I was in 6th grade so I was 12 years old because my dad played. My dad had previously tried to get me into golf when I was around 7 or 8 but I was/am epileptic so I wasn't cleared to play sports in case I had a seizure while playing and nobody would know how to help. Luckily, I have been seizure free since I was 10 so I am all good to go. My dad played because he worked as a high up figure at a casino and he did it for business inquiries. I wanted to be just like my dad. My dad helped me get the basics down but I have been self taught ever since. Never had a lesson except for using it as physical therapy to help get my knee working the right way again with a trainer and coach. Other than that I have taught myself and have been teaching others. My first set of "big boy" clubs were Nike NDS 3-PW Uniflex irons.There were standard length because I was always pretty tall (I'm 6'4 now). I used these irons for 4 years until the summer between my junior and senior year where I got some Mizuno JPX 825's fit to me which evidently was the exact opposite of what I needed because they put the tape on wrong. I would absolutely take the memories over the money. With my dad working at the casino, golf was really our only fun time we had to spend together until he left that job and being his only child I can't imagine what it would have been like to not grow up with a passion to share between us. There is nothing greater than realizing that all of your hard work has paid off and when I got scholarships and letters from coaches to play in college I was just ecstatic. Unfortunately I tore my meniscus, tore my MCL, and sprained my ACL all at the same time the summer after my senior year and all of my scholarships were pulled but it's just amazing to see how far I have come and I wouldn't exchange that for the money in a million years.
  15. I have to buy my own golf balls. It's so weird but I play Nike RZN Platinum and my dad bought me another pack. I used a ball from the pack he bought and topped and hooked it but when I played mine, it was straight, high and just performed better. The same thing happens with him too. I bought him the new yellow and black truvis chrome soft and he was topping, fatting, everything. As soon as he went to the ones he bought, he was fine. It's so weird. I also mark my balls with a specific color. I always color 3 dimples next to each other above the top left of the logo. I used neon orange for odd numbered balls and neon pink for even numbered balls.
  16. For me, I play better when I don't think at all. This is a lot easier for me as I have played sports and have been given the role of "the guy" during crunch time so I just have the ability to tune out and let my body move. If I have to hit a 3 pointer or a free throw to win the game, I am not thinking about practice. I am not thinking about what my coaches have told me through the years because I know I have the ability to do it. In my mind, if I can make a 3 or a free throw than I have the ability to do it anytime and anywhere. To work on this and translate it to the golf game, when I am on the range I will purposely hit crazy shots at targets. For instance I'll hit a huge slice 3 wood and then hit a low hooking iron as if I am hitting out of trees because I know that if I can do it once, I can do it. This may be hard for some but I just let my body do what it knows how to do. I just tune out and almost feel as if I'm not swinging the club but that the club is swinging me. Also, in terms of playing conservatively or aggressively, I weigh my options and realize that if I drive it 300 yards, wedge it in and 2 putt, I still get the same par 4 than I would if I hit a 5 wood or 4 iron and then hit a 7 iron or so into the green and 2 putt. It's all about taking your strengths and abusing them. If your wedge play is the best part of your game, abuse it. Don't be afraid to layup on a par 5 and wedge it in instead of going for it and being stuck in a bunker and making bogey or worse. All in all, tune out, let your body execute the shot, and abuse your strengths.
  17. After the crazy weather we've been having here in Milwaukee I almost did an impulse golf weekend in Orlando. I figured college tuition was probably more important. Sent from my SM-G900R4 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  18. Thanks for the reply. I was really into WRX but all of the wannabe tour pros really put me off of it. I feel I have a good grasp on the golf swing and equipment because I've had a kinesiology class and I'm currently an engineering major but all of the guys that read one post and start throwing it around like they're Bob Vokey and Karsten Solheim themselves is a bit ridiculous. Anyways rant over. I look forward to getting involved and helping others in any way I can and hearing what everyone has to say and what advice they have.

  19. I've been a member over at wrx for awhile but I feel like MGS is going to be a really good fit. Just having a bit of a time trying to figure out where everything is. I would love to test some stuff out but being in college really doesn't leave much time to 1) keep my form during the school year and 2) give me time to give the clubs the chance they deserve. With that said, once summer comes around in about a month or so I'll be all over the forums giving my 2 cents and trying to help others with equipment or instruction questions.
  20. I appreciate the feedback. I definitely want something outdoors because I'm 6'4 and swing cautiously in a simulator because I'm afraid I might hit something. This shows up in the numbers as I can consistently average 300-315 over a round while I'll max out at around 290 on a sim. Sent from my SM-G900R4 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  21. Hello, this is my first post (accidentally put this exact post in the wrong section) but I would like to get fit for a driver (head, shaft, everything). I am in Milwaukee, WI and the only places I have been to be "properly" fitted was the PGA Superstore in Shaumburg, IL. I normally just fit myself by taking what I see on the course but I would like to be really fit for a driver and I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for anywhere around me (100 miles or so). I really appreciate any suggestions.

I really appreciate any suggestions. Just realized I should have put this in the clubmakers section. If it's possible to have this moved there please do so otherwise I will just post this in there.
  23. Last week Saturday, went out and shot 76 from the tips of the second hardest public course in my area. 38/38 with 28 putts. Went back the next day and tore my meniscus. Went from the top to the bottom of a rollercoaster really quick.
  24. I've had these for a month because the Golf Galaxy near my house put them out as soon as they got them. I had them on the 5th, almost 2 weeks before preorders. I love these wedges and am really surprised at how the S200 shaft is holding up during my full swings because I have a 97 mph 6 iron and hardstepping Project x 6.5's in my irons.
