  1. Watching the replay of Morikawa's round I can't help but think he could have gone at least 4 shots lower. Had several short putts that just missed. He is so talented and it'll be really scary when he starts getting those to drop.

    I don't know that I'd say that necessarily.


    I have to take D, 3W, and orange whip out of the bag to fit the bag in. When looking at pushcarts, my wife knew space was at a premium so was looking at things that folded as small as possible. I love the car, but it is certainly not optimal for golf clubs. I have fit two bags a couple times, but it always makes me cringe when closing the trunk.

    I wasn't thinking of hot hatches... Should have clarified 4 door hatch or wagon style cars.

    I reached out to Srixon for answers on both these questions/comments.  Here are the replies form the R&D team. 


    Hideki is very particular about driver shapes. He prefers a contrasting face and topline to help alignment – his head actually has the PVD on the face removed. Hideki prefers a slightly larger address profile, and that is why he gravitated towards the ZX5 driver.

    Hideki enjoys tinkering with his build specs. He will test different shafts, lengths, etc. Because of this, we always have lead tape around to help him perfect the feel and weight that he desires. Hideki has an incredible perception for feel.

    Really cool insight and depth. I can only imagine having that level of perception with clubs... And the company to build all that for me. I know there are shapes and preferences I have, but they are no comparison to him or many others.

  4. At least you are getting a new sensor? I have had to get 4 to 6 new sensors from them for my set over the last few years. I didn't use the system that much last season, but I found the sensors would bug out if you tried to change clubs and so on, which didn't work out too well when I was trying to track different clubs for MGS testing. I plan on going through all of them this week to see how they are. The one good thing is they seem to know there are issues with them and are very willing to send out new ones very quickly. Even out of the box I had 2 sensors that were dead, but had new ones at my door in 2 days.

  5. Well that certainly has my interest peaked! I did really like the i500's and would make sense that the new series would be coming out about now. The i500's and i210's released nearly 2 seasons ago. I had something similar when I ordered my wedges from Ping and they said there were far fewer options available then the specifics I wanted. Only made X or Y were available if I wanted them. The rep didn't say anything more only they weren't available and about 3 weeks later the Glide 3.0 came out.

    Maybe my offers got cancelled, I did not get a chance to look at them yesterday.

    What is very likely is there were offers that included players who ended up being dropped during the waiver process and therefore were no longer available which then cancelled the offers. That is what I would put money on.

    Anyone else seeing a blank page for the pending trades?


    I did get a couple of trade offers but I can't see them

    I have blank, but I don't currently have any offers out and no incoming offers. I know I checked when I got notification that there was a trade accepted, but as soon as its executed it no longer shows in Pending and then is in transaction history.

    Ok fellas. I send a lot of trades and completely understand if any body wishes to not trade. I try to send trades that are at the very least feasible. 

    If you send me a counter of 1 guy outside the top 50 for 3 guys inside the top 25 not only have you ruined any chance of me trading with you in any sport, you also come off as a complete douche.  If you don’t wish to trade then simply decline the trade with a message saying so. No need to make a smart a$$ counter. 

    Rant over. Hope everyone enjoys Masters Sunday!

    Think there is a good point here. There are some of us who love the aspects of trading and shuffling our teams around as a big part of our fantasy golf or sporting experience. Most all of us try to think out trades and to make them that are generally fair for both sides as much as possible. However we cannot know how you value players outside of the OWGR or so on. With that if there are players you do not wish to trade use the comment section in the decline stating you may want to hold the player or believe they are worth more or something of the sorts, helps both sides and if you don't want to make any trades simply say so. Nothing wrong with just prefering to hold tight with the roster you have and if that is the case it is easy to make it known via the comment sections of trades or even by updating your Trade Block. 

    Anyway happy Masters Sunday and trading all!

    You know.  That is the main reason I’ve stopped playing Fantasy Football, i just want to enjoy watching a grest game and not stress over them tsking out my RB in a goaline situation.  Or kicking a FG instead of having my QB take a shot at a TD.   

    much less stressful. 

    Thats a good point, but this helps keep me invested and more into certain sports. Plus living in CET timezone a lot of live coverage is in the middle of the night and I have to be up most days by 5am or 6am so there is little chance of me watching late at night. The different Fantasy leagues certainly help me keep up with many of those sports. 
    However the Masters and their coverage has been great so far!

  10. Between this and Fantasy its stressful watching! Riding on nearly every shot which has a big effect and although I think I am a little too far back in this, I have a few guys that still can make a good event of it.

    Taking offers for English. Send them your way. Will not part with English and Smith

    Will not part with English, but taking offers? Sorry I will likely make a offer but am a little confused on the post.

  12. All 7 made the cut, this is what this team is built for! Now hope to have a few outside of JS to catch fire on the weekend to push me past Steve2100 who has Rose and Kim leading his team. 905579047_Screenshot2021-04-1007_14_01.png.f1eda578c9c6f7336a91f0eaba20375e.png

    Not sure we will see anyone crack 200(0) given the conditions, however  Rhyming Bergs is set up the best going into the weekend!

    Who was your biggest suprise so far (player at the masters)? Good or bad?

    Alright folks Masters weekend is almost upon us. Let’s celebrate with a trade!  Could be a big one or a small one doesn’t matter but everyone is on the table for the right price.


    Send some offers!

    I would but need to wait for the weekend to play out. Team looks solid overall at the moment and as much as I want JT I don't think I would be willing to give up enough to get him. 
    Unless Rory is on the cheap? (just saw him go bunker to bunker)

    so I tried to search the thread for an answer to my question but couldn't really find one. perhaps I missed it but there are a lot of pages here!

    Now that you've all gone through the testing would you replace the non-dominant swings with additional dominant side? do you think that the non-dom helped much in increasing your swing speed?

    apologies if I missed this somewhere in the thread; you guys did an awesome job on reporting on your progress.

    I will keep doing the non dominant swings. Not only do I like seeing the progress, but I feel it helps with my overall flexibility and rhythm. I do tend to do fewer kneeling swings and fewer step changes and keep to regular swings.
