  1. I use my PW (47*) for 100-125 and I have been using a 56* w. 14 bounce for everything else. I carry a 52* but don't hit it very well (thinking about switching to a 50*) and only use it when I am right at 100 yds and a perfect lie. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  2. Hi Kevin. New England Country Club and the Pinehills are two of my favorites Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  3. Hit a few balls with a 6 iron from Mizunos JPX 900 forged and tour version today at GG. Had been waiting to try them out for a couple weeks. I think I'm in love. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  4. Hello. Wanted to share a review of the Oakley Factory Lite Stand Bag. Approx. 2.8 lbs I purchased April of 2016 and have played over 100 rounds with the Bag. With no regard for the lightweight construction, I have treated this Bag the same as I treated my last bag which lasted me over 8 years. I recently donated to my younger brother's first set of clubs and he is still using it 2 years later. 99% of my golf rounds I will walk if the club allows it. I also don't carry much in my bag. Tees, balls and not much else. So I fit the description well for this bag. If you typically ride or prefer more pocket space, this may not be the bag for you. Thanks for reading the background. Here is my review of the Oakley Factory Lite Stand Bag. First Impressions: I was initially impressed with how the bag looked when it first came out of the box. I was expecting to see a cheap looking back due to all the lightweight plastic parts but Oakley did a great job with the overall design. Weight: The bag is obviously vey light at 2.8 lbs but I never truly appreciated how light it was until I had become used to the weight and would try other people's bags. This thing is light. It also holds up amazing in the wind. The material it's made from allows their air to pass through the entire bag. Has not fallen over once due to gust of wind. Materials: Not waterproof in any which way however. If it's raining everything in the bag will get wet. Once you get past that, it's great. All materials are lightweight. The bag is made from a tent like material and utilizes plastic hardware to keep the weight down. You can see how the bag has held up below in the photos section. Looks: I give Oakley an A for looks. Great simple design that looks high end. Club Divider: A 4-way divider with fabric separators on the interior. It fits my driver, 3W, 5W, 3-PW, (3) wedges, and a putter. They slide in and out of the bag fairly easily. Depending on how you load the bag, it can get jammed up sometimes. Strap: Backpack style lightweight foam strap with a back support is comfortable. The carrying handle is also soft and sturdy. Some of the stitching holding one of the strap loops came loose and needed repairs. Photo of this below. Stand: The Stand mechanism works well. Legs can over extend in certain situations but not enough to collapse the bag. Pockets: There are (2) main pockets on this bag and each has a small mesh pocket within. I can hold everything I need including keys and cell phone. There are no waterproof pockets. Final Thoughts: This bag does what it was designed to do very well. If you are making decisions on your golf bag based upon the weight than this bag needs to be on your list. Photos: These were taken on 10/16/2016. After 6 months of use playing 4-6 times a week.

  5. I just bought a sun mountain front 9 at my local Golfsmith for $54 because it was closing. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  6. I've noticed the few threads on what golfers don't like about other courses and players and it made me start thinking of things I do on the course that I bet other people can't stand. I am kind of selfish on the course sometimes. Don't help look for balls, walk ahead to my ball (staying out of the way but still ahead), miss my groups shots and can't help tell them where it went. Missing good shots from others in my group. What are you guilty of on the course?
  7. Golfers who aren't ready to play when it's their turn are the ones that aggravate me the most. I think that slows up play more the individuals golf ability. Bugs me the most on the green. If you're furthest away putt, and if it's close, finish it up and move on. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. Swing hard incase you hit it! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  9. I wonder if instead of the wrist band they could use the sensor that attaches to the golf glove. I bet the wrist band just takes a little getting used to. If the data it collects helped my game I would wear it every few rounds. If someone could invent a slice fix that you wear on your wrist I would definitely be in!

  10. Thanks for the warm welcome. I am from southeastern MA region. Blackstone National is on my list for next year. A few guys in the league I play in recommended it. Heard it was a shorter, tight track from the white tees. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  12. Hello. I am heading out tomorrow afternoon for a round at The Pinehills in Plymouth, MA Looks like it will be 50s and raining. A couple guys in my fore some took extra poking and prodding to not back out. Was curious on everyone's thoughts on playing in the rain? I feel as long as you are mentally prepared than it's not so bad. Can't ruin the day if I already know it's going to be cruddy out. Cheers! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. I usually walk so I like to keep mine light. I am also becoming somewhat superstitious about only having these items and nothing else on me or in the bag when playing......Stupid mental obsession with having my bag as light as possible. Carrying the Oakley factory lite. 3-5 balls 20-30 tees Sharpie Scorecard Water 2 gloves Keys and phone stay in the car Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. Pre shot is very helpful for me. Helps me focus on the shot at hand. Sometimes if I just go up and hit it I find I am mis aligned or just don't put a good swing on it. I stand behind the ball. See where I want the ball to go and pick a spot about 1-2' in front of my ball for alignment. Take a deep breath, set up, and swing. Pre shot is the same for every shot I hit from tee box to putting green Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app
