    Excited for the action this week but I should probably start drafting an apology letter to all my picks.

    If you picked DJ you may need to consider getting me to write it for you, otherwise you’ll confuse him (possibly most of both teams😅)

    After seeing @MattF's  'outfit' at our outing this past Sunday,  I'm surprised that  @The Shorts  hasn't made an appearance as a new member. 

    Edit: a close-up pic of The Shorts was a missed opportunity. 😀

    Thank you for missing that opportunity 😅

  3. Planting some extra vines in my tiny backyard vineyard today. Just after I finished digging my last hole of 90, we were hit by a 5.9 Earthquake.  Don’t think my digging caused it 🤞

    I used to watch AFL on ESPN and LOVED the sport! I became a fan of Carlton just because I liked the looks of their guernsey!!! Such a fun sport. 

    Grand final is on 25th September (our time) so some time on the 24th for you. Hopefully you’ll get a chance to watch it and (hopefully)see Melbourne defeat the Western Bulldogs to win their first flag since 1964

    I'm just glad ScoMo finally realised that there's no way there could ever be a zero policy. There may be hope that I can come out at the end of next year or March 2023.

    Not so much the zero policy for me, more the fact he butchered the vaccination roll out. Should have been 3 months ahead of where we are. Squandered the hard work it took to get to zero.

  6. @GolfSpy_APH @GolfSpy_THV Just posted another comment in the Sub70 driver thread. Last comment I could see was by Bens197, which was the last one when I commented on Saturday. After posting a comment, I could see about 10-15 new comments after Bens (not including my comment from Saturday. 

    Now for the weird bit. When I went back to check Bens full name, his was the last visible comment again.

    I commented again and took a screenshot while in the thread and after leaving and going back into it to demonstrate.

    I see all the comments on my end. I do notice that is says 0 and wonder if this is part with the comments having not been split yet. I'll send it off to our dev and see if they have an answer for it. I can confirm I see all the comments though. 

    I posted a comment yesterday and it hasn't shown up. It was around 10am Aus Eastern Time if that helps

    So, I think we can all agree that MGS needs to invest in a CT Scan and an X-ray machine. Now, if we could only get the MRI in the study we can analyze the beJesus out of these balls. LOL Great work from a true golfaholic.


    To put my technical hat on, MRI wouldn't be much use, as it basically demonstrates water, which hopefully modern balls don't have much of.

    I hope your hospital administrators are members of this forum. And i hope you didn’t bump a patient to do this. Or is it your own CT scan?

    Did the images out of hours when no patients booked while on my break. It's at the site I manage and my manager has no problem with it.

    What a great use of X Ray and CT scanners. I guess the plandemic has left a lot of people in the medical community with nothing better to do.

    We're currently in lockdown, and our bookings are down as a result. Fortunately our area is doing ok at the moment.

    I found it almost therapeutic after dealing with the daily stress of dealing with pandemic response, especially making sure we have adequate supplies of PPE to keep my staff safe and healthy.

    So while cool, as a chemist,  I cringe seeing a ct used on golf balls when there is a helium shortage (for those who don't know, helium keeps the magnets cold and prevent them from seizing and preserving their magnetic field strength. )

    No helium in CT’s, that’s MRI. CT is really just fancy x-ray. The impact of helium shortages on MRI could be catastrophic somewhere down the road.

    You can tell we haven't been able to get to the course in a little while. Nice stuff!

    Now you've ruined it for me. I was hoping people would think I was incredibly committed to golf ball QA, not just going stir crazy. At this rate 4 dozen balls may well see out my playing career😅

  12. Probably my main issue is that the “Like/Retweet to test” is absolutely not true. When you click on the link it doesn’t take you to the forum, but to the article on the main site. Then “apply now” which takes you to the testing forum, not the main forum. 

    Other than revenue, I can’t see it driving forum growth if people don’t even see the forum.

    Seeing as @GolfSpy_X started My Golf Spy to combat inaccuracies in golf industry claims, perhaps @GolfSpy_THV or someone from the blog site could explain why the SM posts are worded this way when it clearly isn’t accurate.

  13. I’m a bit concerned that the ads for testing opportunities that MGS run on Facebook and Twitter are misleading and creating more work for moderators. The make it seem like testing opportunities are a competition to win something. 

    See the screen cap below for a Facebook example



    Perhaps some clarity from head office would be useful. Is a desire to increase site traffic driving these ads? 

    I’m concerned that the misleading nature of these ads goes directly against the Truth mantra of MGS

    I’m a happy golfer! My new Xphlexxx Busa Liquid 2 shaft arrived today, and what makes it even better than normal is that it has a Pro Callaway adapter on it so it’s adjustable up to TWO degrees! Added a 1/4” this time, so it will play at 45 1/4 in the Max LS. I’ll put a grip on it tomorrow along with a little bit of lead tape to get the head weight up until some new weights arrive, and then play it Saturday.

    Cool! After the x-ray they’ll glow and you can play them at night!!!

    Doesn’t really work that way. I might need to get @Kenny B to explain some radiation physics to you😅

  15. Just ordered 4 dozen Srixon Z Star XV’s. I’m changing from the standard Z Star after reading through the MGS ball test. Took advantage of a voucher offer and got them for USD140 with a pack of tees to get me over the minimum.

    Planning on X-Raying them prior to use to see if I can find any with obvious concentricity problems.

  16. Smoked some ribs, also smoked some bacon while I had the smoker fired up. Served with some cheesy cauliflower.




    The following demonstrates how good the ribs came out. They were my best effort so far.
