  1. All things left handed!

    Would love to see the Ping Long Game testing come back, or the same from another company. 

    Even though a bit older PXG 0211 series.

    Arccos link? And other shot tracking technology. Love my arccos, but have a feeling all my sensors will be dead now. 

    TGF testing was cool as well and brought up some interesting products for review.

    Question for the group and possible superspeed folks. When you do the step change, is your lead foot supposed to end on where you normally take your stance for best results? I find I really "jump" forward and extend myself and was not sure if that's best.

    I tried to maintain a normal Position, but I also focus on staying a bit more upright for my swing mechanics... Weather is warming up so about time to fire it all up again!!

    The 1st 3 team trade in our league was just executed!  

    This may have opened a whole new world for you... And a very dangerous one for everyone else.

  4. Not at all that I am looking for a change, but it would be interesting to to use the League median as a so called cut line that would indicate who makes playoffs and who left out, then have a secondary cut line for those who would "make it to sunday" so to speak. 
    I haven't look much at the individual matchups other then just glancing through on most fridays to see where I stand in most matchups, but may be worth checking out a little closer. Hurts that the west coast swing is a 9 hour time difference so was not about to stay up and watch even though I likely should have seeings how it ended.

  5. Trades seem to be coming up a lot more!
    Nice to see and for some remember you can help tip the balance either way by adding in FABB towards the trade. 
    Should have taken BnG up on that Fowler for Max trade ... however Fowler did seem to have a better week so maybe he will be turning the corner.

    just for reference... OWGR:

    I have a feeling your hinting at something. Was going to offer Morikawa, but he has only just started playing so need to see some more from him. 

    For those again still would like to package fowler with kisner for someone. 

  7. Sorry i honestly meant to put this in Fantasy Football and well it was a long morning... Apologies

     

    I know we didn't have the circus league and the pick'em was a nice add in, but this would be another fun option for a smaller group. 
     

    Guillotine Leagues

     

     

    MyFantasyLeague.com is happy to offer Guillotine Leagues. See below for more info on how these leagues work. We’ve priced them at a significant discount to our regular leagues, so they are a great way to get a 2nd league going with your friends or co-workers this season!

    Here’s how the Guillotine League format works:

    • Each week, the lowest scoring team is eliminated from the league!
    • When a team is eliminated, their entire roster is tossed back into the free agent pool for the waiver wire.
    • At the end of the season, the last team remaining is the champion.

    The optimal number of teams for this format is 17 so that you have your “final” in week 16 (since one team is eliminated each week, there will only be 2 teams left in week 16). You can use less teams, but then it just means your season will end earlier. There is no fantasy schedule, and you don’t need to split the teams into divisions. You can fill the teams at the start of the season with whatever method you want: draft, auction, etc. You can use either type of waiver wire (blind bidding or regular waivers). The rest of the league is pretty much the same as any other league. Trading is optional. Each owner submits their lineup every week. You can choose any roster size and any starting lineup configuration, and use any type of scoring rules.

    The real excitement of this format comes when it’s time to eliminate the lowest scoring fantasy team from the league each week. All of that team’s players, including whatever “studs” they have, will now be available on the weekly waiver wire for you to grab. So every week is an adventure in juggling your roster as you try to stay alive in the race to be the last team standing.

    Check out this page for a full article on the Guillotine League format by Paul Charchian at Fanball, and check our Guillotine League FAQ Page for more details as well

    I searched the thread for "PRGR" and couldn't find an answer so here goes...

    I noticed in a few of the reviews, like @jlukes's for example, the PRGR was on a little tripod. Was this recommended to you by @SuperSpeed Golf? How high off the ground if so? Going to start (for the second time in 2 years) the protocols tomorrow. Thanks everyone!

    What most of us found that was if there was grass or anything close to in front of the PRGR it would give inconsistent readings. I simply put mine on the box it came in and that was sufficient enough, however it is good to have it raised to a level where anything on the ground won't intercept any readings. 
    You may have looked or noticed that the setup of it can take some time and be a little tricky, where I have a bit more of a inside out swing I had to place it appropriately for that (I also had the speed radar so I could compare). It looked a bit of a odd spot, but I got good readings from it in that specific spot which were consistent.  
    A little tripod would be great, I believe the one jlukes had was the adjustable legs? Either way a great solution to raise it up, but again a simple solution is just using the box.. or cutting the grass? haha

  9. Should be updated for everyone now. It's normally Tuesday when you'll see it completely update on the site. Example after reading all the posts yesterday and checked i had 2 labeled as playing. Now this morning 7 of my 8.

    I would expect this to be the norm going forward that Monday will not have the full upstate and we will likely see it Tuesday.

    Only have 4 on the roster playing this event 😬.  Here's hoping they all make it into the weekend.

    4 is better then 3! Sadly nobody could be dropped so likely going to be a down week. Long season though!

    So, to part with Xander would require a package deal of course.  And your first round pick next year, and in 2023.  And cash.  🤣

    Don't mind giving picks as they should be late late late firsts 😉

    One of you Spieth owners must want to make a deal now, right?!?  Look over my roster and make a REASONABLE offer...

    I would love to, but it would be part of a bigger deal involving xander which I am guessing is a non starter 😞

  14. I've been a bit hesitant to weigh in on, but why not. I am not a PReed fan admittedly, however that simply means there is no way I will trade for, draft or pick up him on my MGS Fantasy golf team. He is a great talent in the sport of golf and without question has a hazy history of incidents similar. Yes, I didn't love the series of events, but it has been explained that technically he did not do anything wrong. Maybe the sequence was off and the way the camera was blocked when he initially got to the ball isn't a good look and I don't know if he deserves the benefit of the doubt, but as the officials stated it was technically done by the book. I know it didn't look good and the interaction with the onsite official was iffy and I do not want to defend him because we all clearly saw the ball bounce... and pretty high I will admit. However based off the information he had and so on I guess it was correct. Either way we saw similar situation with Rory and one could argue had Reed not called the official in that it may have been better, but I do believe that if situations like this keep arising with him eventually they will catch up to him, hopefully he turns a corner and is able to be more liked. As I said he is insanely talented at the game of golf.

    The fact we could see the ball bounce made it that much worse and there is a whole laundry list of talking points we could unpack there. 


    I think maybe what I keep thinking about is it sucks when there are incidents like this that players so called get away with and are not penalized and then you have DJ way back loosing a major because he grounded his club way back. The rules don't always seem fair and I do hope for Reeds sake that no more of these incidents occur so the focus can shift to his game and not the shadiness of his on course actions. Again I am not a fan of his actions or the personality he gives off, but like to see good golf shots and frankly when he isn't playing with Tiger he has provided us with some pretty stunning and memorable golf.

  15. Without a doubt going to be interesting format and week to week. Happy with the start but also realizing next week I may need to make some moved to get close to a full lineup (kisner/fitz/$pieth and streelman all on the trade block). 

    @blackngold_blood that's rough luck in week one. It did look like the league median was quite high too.

    Thanks though!
