  1. I play the inserts in my current set and have played them in pretty much every set for the last 8 or so years. No difference in the shaft’s playing characteristics just a bit easier on the hands and elbows. Wouldn’t even consider a steel iron shaft without them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. SWMBO just convinced me to order the hybrid that I was fit for and refused to pull the trigger on (wine with lunch on a day off is a good thing). Ordered a Callaway Apex 19 20* with an AD DI 85x. I gave the older Apex version a shot on my golf trip and just hated it. Anything remotely near the toe was a rope hook. I need something I can play when I don’t have the 2 iron in the bag. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. This is a basic chart from Callaway for just launch and spin. At least it is a start. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Shirts, hats, ball markers, balls etc at Pinehurst. My son said I reminded him of Al Cervick in the pro shop. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. Played Pinehurst #4 today and shot a hard battled 74....with 4 birds. The early season looseness in my swing continues but I somehow seem to bounce back and keep it in control. Hoping this trend continues and I have a better season than last year. On a related note #4 was my favorite that we played in this trip. A bit tougher off the tee than #2 but the greens are a bit more friendly. Good approach shots are just hurt and not punished like on #2. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Not yet but getting closer by the day. He played really well today and consistently carried the driver right around 200 yards. Only a matter of time until I become the second best player in the family. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. If that was my putting grip I can assure you I would be one hell of a bowler. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Played Pinehurst #2 this morning and in a word I played great. For not playing most of the winter and shaking off the rust the 79 I put up was the best that I could have shot. I played a hybrid of the blues and the tips with the way they had the tees setup so guessing somewhere around 7,300 yards. I will say the margin for error on this track is nonexistent. I hit a lot of really good shots that were a touch off and was just punished. On the bright side my hybrid chipping game is spot on right now. Can’t wait for #4 in the morning.

  11. Nice to finally be able to post here again. Played #8 at Pinehurst this morning from the tips and it was a long slog. Lots of rain down here and we had wind today so it played every bit of 7,400 yards. Ended with 76 with +3 on the front and +1 on the back. Didn’t do anything great nor did I hit any terrible shots just played smart golf. Missed two fairways by about 6 yards combined and hit 14 greens. Highlight of the day was the starter telling me on the first hole I may be more comfortable moving up a set of tees after my opening tee shot. He drove up to see where my drive went and said he changed his mind and I was fine back there. Low point was my 12 year old dusting me by 40 yards on one tee shot...just one that I have heard about all day. Was also the first round outdoors with the Flash SZ and have to say it may just be the best driver I have played in years. Not any longer than the Epic SZ but a heck of a lot friendlier and easy to work both ways. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. I was at the tips and he was at the red tees but he still flew it about 205 in the air to get down over the path. I hit a little cut off the tee trying to ride the wind a bit. Did not work for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk He tested positive for elevated levels of Barney and Fred. Going to the B sample before tomorrow’s round. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. He is getting drug tested as I type this. He is on something other than Flintstone vitamins. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. That awkward moment when your 12 year old is 40 yards by you. The hell with Flash face, I am getting a Fusion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. After a long day and some travel my son and I have finally arrived in Pinehurst. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  17. My club just posted that we open tomorrow. I know what I am doing next weekend after my Pinehurst trip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I answered the poll as both as my two utility irons have AD DI graphite in them and I play light weight steel in my irons. Over the past few years I switched from steel to graphite in my irons and have played Steel Fibers 110 and Recoil 110 both in X flex. Both of these were great in the heads that I had them in and figured that I would be in graphite for the rest of my life to save my elbow from blowing up. I ended up with XP 105s in my current set and had sensicore inserts installed and so far so good. That being said I would go back to graphite tomorrow with no issue at all and honestly feel this will become the norm for irons over the next several years. On a related not the oTI shafts are the best that I have hit. Buddy of mine has them in his irons and they were head and shoulders above anything else I have hit in terms of feel and dispersion.
  19. Had our quarterly board meeting earlier this week and in it I had mentioned that I was planning to go to Pinehurst this weekend for some golf with my son and then said provided we get our 10-K filed before I leave. The Chairman of our board had asked me what I planned to do if we don't get it done and I said cancel the trip. I got a call from him today and was told in no uncertain terms that there was no way that I was cancelling my trip and that it will get done whether I am strapped to my desk or if I am playing golf with my son. Also said that he appreciated the all the effort by me and my team, but this is not something that I even think about missing. Very refreshing to know that over a year ago when I made a change to my career that I made the correct decision for a lot of reasons. Sometimes it is not always about the salary and unfortunately for several years I measured the success in my life by my career and the paycheck.

  21. Had to buy new golf pants for my trip next weekend to Pinehurst. The ones that I bought last season didn’t fit anymore...in the good sense. For the first time in my life I can wear flat front pants and not look terrible. Still not good but will take a bit better than terrible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Had to get myself some new golf pants this morning. Apparently I am a different size than last season...in the good direction. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. It was an idle threat at best. I already paid for the trip and he knows I don't like to waste money.
  24. May or may not have threatened to leave him home. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Doesn’t wear anything but short so it took a little more than prodding. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
