  1. Which is too bad. I really enjoy when be is in the hunt. He can be so dominant and has that air of confidence around him. Never enjoy seeing him struggle and at least for me when he is contending it makes me want to watch more golf.
  2. Trackman to my knowledge is more meant for outdoor use. It needs a longer window or flight view to be more accurate. Couldn't tell you anything more then that, but I know the indoor uses I've had with them haven't been my favorite and I've always preferred using GC quad for indoor play.
  3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVnE0W-cjgY This popped up on my Google feed... Wow.
  4. Okay let's have some fun with this. Pancakes - The Open, for flat ish play brown burnt out awesome along the ground golf we see at links courses. Edit: Syrup can make it messy and sticky just like the weather that can often blow in... And just like the weather it makes it so much better! Eggs (sunny side up) - PGA, for the blazing hot conditions we had at Southern Hills last time around and we are back there this year. Bacon - The Masters, slippery greens (grease), various bumps ridges and slopes and the better the execution the better it is! Sausage - The US Open, a classic that is the hardest to do right. Overdone and it's toast, under and it's soggy and gross... Also can be a little bland at times.
  5. I would give it a try. I've always been curious about one length. I think the new forged TEC in one length would be great. That being said in scoring clubs it would seem to make a bit more sense as the gaping seems to get worse the longer the shot. Do you think the note delicate shots would be any different or more or less tricky with the added length? Full shots i still could see soon increases maybe?
  6. Should be better now. Don't love the color change, but best I could do before bed!
  7. I try and post relevant numbers for many and we try and also post this thread in the test to get people to understand the process and what we do. It can *sometimes* help with emails of why didn't I get picked and so on. However I'm glad you found it helpful and insightful. You are completley correct in thinking it is so easy to see it as 5000+ applicants and it being pretty daunting, but yeah typically the most that have a post count that is relevant is about 200 or so. Then add in those who don't have a profile photo and cuts it down again. FWIW, no profile photo no selection. That is a simple clear standard we have and does help us filter a little easier too. So knock off another 20% or so. Then yes we do look at ratio. Reason being there are many that may only post in testing thread (less now with the new way of selection, but still) and we prefer to see activity in a few areas of the forum even if it is testing that brings someone to the forum. It was mentioned at one point, but ites pretty easy to see when someone only posts in tests and only ever just signs up for testing. Which is fine, however we would love to see more cross forum participation. I was brought by testing in the beginning and ended up pursuing a leadership position which I am very happy to be in and help this great community where possible.
  8. Yeah i noticed that, but was unable to find the change for it in the coding. I'll keep looking, but it is also late here for me and baby is sleeping so means i need to get sleep too!
  9. Honestly it isn't that bad. Stay objective, take input from other mods, use the info we have available to us and good to go. Those who complain about not being selected, well usually there is a good reason. There are tons of emails of pick me pick me or why do I never get picked, but that's a big reason why i created this thread. To point them here and hopefully have them figure out themselves as to the why!
  10. Unfortunately in forums people can read and take context in different lights. I choose to believe "good" doesn't directly correlate to positive. Maybe my wording should have been more concise? In any case some will choose to pick away, which is fine. We are an open forum and feedback is appreciated. That being said we will do our best to continue to educate our membership on how and what we do. We will also continue to try and improve our system as time goes on as who knows what future tests will require or need in order to be considered a tester.
  11. PGA Championship Major Theme coming live in the next few minutes (I will admit it isn't perfect, but still has a nice look). This is a temp theme for the week of the PGA Championship! Following the end of the round it will be gone till next year! Didn't know we had different themes? Scroll to the bottom of your page, select theme and see the variety of different looks we have for your personal preference! Spice up your experience and try out a theme or two and see if there is one you like more than others.
  12. Living in Europe I can second this as it is more common here for ppl to go on vacation in Saudi and as said is more normalized in general. Just my observation having been here a couple years and spent a lot of time over the last 6 or so years in Europe.
  13. It's a good thing I'm good at fantasy golf because i have regularly sucked at these... Like bad bad. Interesting most everyone who has posted has said their picks are bad out they are bad at these... So who actually ends up winning? @Golfspy_CG2do you secretly have all the answers ahead of time? Haha
  14. Not sure it is him considering playing in LIV more saying it is if course an option. The unfortunate thing is he has really struggled and it isn't even about him winning anymore, it is if he can make a cut (Wolff the same way). Spieth went through it and has come out strong, so hopefully Fowler can do the same. However if you cm are struggling to make cuts a no cut event is certainly more appealing. In the end anyone who joins LIV is going to have to ask the question what will it cost, what is the gain? Sponsors? Will they stay or go. Family time, 8 events, guaranteed money... That sounds good. Will those winnings out weigh the potential loss in sponsors. Then the whole if you can play in certain majors and other PGA events afterwards.
  15. I think that is where the biggest issue comes. This from nearly every angle isn't growing the game. It is causing more division then growth. Maybe it is getting more ppl talking about golf, but not likely in the proper light. For me growth comes from grass roots and working its way up from there. Yes, the top can influence growth in ways, but true stable growth comes from grass roots. Again my own opinion. It's not even as though this will get a huge audience as they weren't able to sell the broadcast rights to anyone big and it will be streamed on YouTube as I've heard. The Netflix PGA drive to survive type series will certainly do more to "grow the game" then this league which put simply again to me, paying millions more to millionaires just doesn't have the appeal to me. Not saying the regular PGA is something I love to watch, but I do tune on each week to see how things are going (mainly due to our fantasy league).
  16. Haven't seen it in the last little bit. We will have our dev look at it.
  17. You'll get many of the same answers here with a recommendation of going in to get fit and try as many different irons/shafts as you can. Someone recently asked the same question in their own thread maybe a week ago. So instead I'll take a slightly different angle and ask some follow ups. What kind of budget do you have? Not exact figure, bug more so meaning will you be going new? Or used? Or have you checked different DTC brands like Sub70? What are you looking for in your new irons? More distance, just a smaller head and more potential shot shaping ability? Always good to play the most forgiving irons possible that you like the look at. There are so many irons out there it can be tough to narrow down, but checking out this and previous years most wanted on mgs can get as a starting point. Finally with the players distance category you can get a lot in a smaller iron head, often a little more expensive but is a really popular category right now!
  18. Seems to be working fine, but it has had it's buggy days here and there this season.
  19. More to this it is the jackets and the trophies that are often the most memorable. I like that there are iconic trophies and traditions in golf that stand out more then the dollar amounts. The revolving door of X amount to this winner when many of them say themselves that yeah the money is nice, but so many of them have made so much the added 1 or 2 million really doesn't phase them. Of course for some it would make a world of a difference. What about The Shankster Jacket Tour? A series of 12 tournaments with different jackets for all the winners. The goal is to collect them all!
  20. Anyone else eagerly awaiting the next stock up and stock down? Will be curious to follow up with @GolfSpy_TCU on how many submissions he has got for the next piece as well.
  21. Something us as a mod team has kept an eye on what's going on over there and without question they have a different vibe, but we are seeing more crossovers between the two in they are also providing some member testing (both sites have Modus 115 tests) and now fresh in the mail looks like they have their own version of a most wanted type thing?
  22. Also this should be a reminder to all that we are about half way. And regardless of standing it is expected that managers will at the very least update their rosters week to week if they plan on continuing to participate in future leagues. We do already have 1 mia team from week 1 and hope that at the very least put in a roster that starts all your possible players week to week. Don't have to do trades or waivers, even if that is appreciated, but please continue to do your best. Lots of season left and nobody is completely out of it yet.
  23. That's correct. Entire field gets paid. Which i can see being attractive. Still all of these guys are done lucky to be playing golf for their profession. A spot many of us would swap to do even if it was just PGA events. I'm sure many know how lucky they are as well. I don't fault them for wanting to make more money. I think most wouldn't mind getting extra to assist us. However RMac said it pretty good. He is happy, has a good going, ankle to sort his family, has clothing and living a good life all because he is good at a sport he loves.
