  1. Thanks all! Certainly was not expecting that. And to share my bday with a forum legend like the rev is great!
  2. Shoutout to my league mates for these recommendations. I'll be sure to include a full forum review sometime soon!!! Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  3. Did you stay at the lodge? When I was in 6th grade, I accompanied my grandparents on a trip to Cape Breton Island, which included a night's stay at Keltic Lodge (and playing/walking a round at Highland Links with my grandpa). The food was delicious, and the experience was one I will never forget, thanks for bringing it up again. I don't remember a lot about the course, but it was fun and a great walk. Glad you enjoyed it, a definite addition to a Cabot trip (even though it's on the other side of the island).
  4. The guys from TXG did a course vlog on the course that is hosting the open a few months ago. The link is included below. I've never played it or been there, but heard nice things. The first round was televised on Thursday in Canada but today's was not. Too bad, everybody obviously pulls for Brooke Henderson up here and she never disappoints. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=793v4He_ilM
  5. You should consider adding a review to the forum members review section, I am sure lots of people would be interested in hearing about this. I certainly was, thanks!
  6. I think slow play on tour versus slow play on local courses is two different issues. Tour players play slow, local players often play poorly, and don't consider others around them. Slow play is really a big problem for the networks. It means more dead time and less golf shots. So, once somebody has one violation in a day, give them a warning. On their 2nd, don't show them on TV the rest of the day. No matter what, no more TV time. These guys need TV time to show their sponsors why they are worth paying. If Bryson and JB Holmes are constantly getting banned, who is going to sponsor them? Hit them in the wallet where it hurts. At local courses, we should be only letting people score double par on holes. More than that is just painful. A few of our local courses post clocks based on your start time all around the course, encouraging people to keep up. But lots of local golfers just have egos. They either don't think they're slow, don't care or take it as an affront to their manhood someone else is faster and wants to pass them. I think slow golf on local courses is far more important to most peoples enjoyment of the game, and what the pros do, sure it sets a precedent, but I don't know any amateur golfers who are slow because they think too much about their shots.
  7. What were your results? I tested the MTB-X for the forum and was a chrome soft-x player before that. I loved the MTB-X and was a huge fan. I found it superior or equal to to tour levels from many other companies, which is saying something. I hope it worked for you as well!
  8. I've loved to have your insight to be honest. Cool to have a forum member checking in with us as we go through our reviews. The more the merrier I think!
  9. Just got to post my 2nd stage as well. Had a great experience testing this ball, I hope you all enjoy reading about it. I'm always happy to answer any questions you might have! These testers did some great work, go check it out!
  10. As a part of the MTB-X testing for the forum, our results should be coming up this weekend/ next week. I think all of us have had some interesting results, so if you are interested in those balls, definitely check it out. I will be very heavily discussing the "feel" of these balls and what that means for me.
  11. One of 33, I must have done something right. Looking forward to finishing 33rd... Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. I'm pumped for the open, can't wait for it to get started tonight. If anybody is a fan of No Laying Up they did an awesome interview with Eamon Lynch, who is from Northern Ireland, discussing not only the course but some of the recent history of the issues that have plagued Northern Ireland for the last 50 years. Really interesting stuff and certainly adds a different angle to the coverage. I think the winner comes from "the field," not sure it will be a big name player. Should be fun to watch.

  13. I will be writing about this, but I have really noticed a ball flight difference here. Much more penetrating from the MTB-X (and other X balls). As a high spin player, this is helpful. Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. Is it a stupid question if I ask you if you've read the MGS Golf Ball Test yet?
