  1. I think we could have the debate forever. I also hate these debates that cross generations because you never got to see one against the other in their prime. Conditions change, the game changes. It's like mj vs Kobe vs LeBron. Brady vs Montana. Tiger vs jack. Were they all the best of a generation, absolutely yes. That said I want tiger to pass Jack. I think the chase is good for the game and to see golfers improve and grow the game is fun. Seeing tiger win another Masters this past weekend was so fun for be as a fan. Love him or hate him, tiger playing well is good for golf. It elevates the game and gives younger golfers a legend to chase, just like tiger chased jack.
  2. I'm not brand loyal at all. I am data loyal and I put alot of stock in what my fitter recommends. He also gives me lessons so he is really in tune with my game. I have a M2 driver, Callaway hybrid, Mizuno irons, Cleveland wedges and Cameron putter and play bridgestone balls. I've also never played better golf than with my current bag.
  3. I think the perception is absolutely true for most people. I think it's different for people who really get into research and follow equipment. I have nothing bad to say about titliest, I love their apparel, but I tested their AP irons and I tested several of their golf balls. They performed really well. For me it just came down to Mizuno irons played a little bit better for me and bridgestone balls performed better for me. I did recently get a Cameron putter and while it was fit for me and preforms so beautifully, I didn't get it because it was titliest, I got it because it was Cameron. I would test then again when it comes time to replace things.
  4. Well for me, when I did the putter fitting, I knew I was getting some back spin on my putts, especially on longer putts. This is obviously not something we want. So for me the fitting was about equipment but it was also about technique. My fitter suggested something with some slight toe hang because I do have a small natural arc in my stroke. He was also able to tell me I was setting the ball up too far back in my stance so I was hitting down on the ball causing some of the back spin issue. I also needed to step back from the ball slightly because I was hitting with an inside out stroke angle, leaving the face slightly open at contact, causing some right path drift of the ball. So the fitting for me did more than just suggest the best putter for me. It gave me some tweaks to my technique to practice that should all make a measurable difference. So when I say get fit, I mean to find someone you can have a real conversation about your game and who actually wants to see you improve and enjoy the game more. Not just sell you equipment. If they are just in it to sell you equipment, they won't be honest with you, nor will they put real effort into fitting you properly and explaining why they are making a certain equipment suggestion.
  5. Best move I have ever made in terms of equipment was to find a club fitter who I trusted. He also happens to be my coach who has given me lessons so he really knows my strengths and weaknesses so his suggestions and recommendations were very informed and helpful for me.

  6. I would say that I regret not having every been fit for a putter but I just did this, this past week. Not an evnroll but I ended up with a new Scotty Cameron square back. I also got some really great tips to practice with my putting Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  7. Great idea for a thread. For me it has to be a putter and two hybrids I bought from bombtech. I was new to golf and fell for all the hype. In fairness I'll say it is probably more that they weren't fit for me. Definitely didn't last long and I regret buying them. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  9. You know I watched a video by me and my golf coaches who were talking about this and they said exactly this, it's hard to hit it straight unless you are really good or playing a really short wedge shot. I took this into my thought process and really stressing working on hitting a fade that I control and a draw that I control. The draw is still a work in progress, but the fade is coming along nicely and I have noticed my gir especially on par 3s has gone up now that I'm not trying to hit it perfectly straight but instead controlling the curve on the ball flight Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. This season has seen my bad change immensely. Thanks to some lessons and discussions with my coach I stopped carrying a 3 wood in my bag. I've changed the irons in my bag from ping g20 to Mizuno jpx900, I've added a Callaway rogue hybrid to my bag as well as replaced my old ping wedges with Cleveland cbx wedges as well as changed putters to the Cleveland Huntington Beach 6. It's been a big year for my bag but that hopefully means that in the next few years it will be calmer Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I only change something in the round of it's a flaw that I know I have and know how to fix based on previous practice, if I don't know, I don't mess with it in the round. I don't think any golfer did ever stop tinkering, just do it on the range or the off season Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. I just bought the jpx900 and they are already at a reduced price so they probably won't reduce more but I got them fitted for 100 a club Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. He is a big draw to the game for hard core fans and casual fans alike, which is why he is covered so much. I get the able your coming from because it does sometimes detract from the very talented young golfers who were getting covered while tiger was injured but it's just like LeBron for basketball or Tom Brady for football. Whether you like them or hate them, they attract people to the game. Plus if you're a hardcore fan you can find plenty of coverage of the great field of young golfers who are the present and future of the game Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Alright, sorry it has taken so long for me to get back to your comment. First off to the argument, this is only what works for me and may not be for anyone else. It's just what I found works for me. I have what would be considered a huge gap in the bag. I drive the ball 260-270 consistently. My five hybrid goes about 190. I only carry 11 clubs currently but 2 more wedges are in the works. I simply going that I hit a 3w, 5w poorly and a 7w just as far as my 5h. So I just found that I didn't hit those clubs well and I just work my way around the course using those clubs. Ping G20 driver through wedges Bombtech blade putter
