    You didn't steal him. We have the same record but I have more points so you had the higher waiver priority. No worries!

    Can you run it again? I didn't get the guy I wanted. Stricker was just a smoke screen to cover up my claim for Lucas Glover.

    The claim didn't process this morning. It looks like when a guy is dropped he will be locked for 24 hours where you can't even add him to your claims queue. Once that 24 hours are up you can add them to your queue but it will not be processed until the next week's tournament. From the top of our current players list Kevin Tway can be claimed but it will not process until next week (he was dropped more than 24 hours ago). Werenski and Wright have not yet been available for 24 hours so no adding or claiming can take place yet. The other guys are free agents and can be added right away.

    Can we change one aspect of the waiver wire? Right now guys that get dropped on Tuesday are not eligible to be picked up and active on someone's roster until the following week's tournament. For example, Steve Stricker was dropped earlier today but when I go to add him I get a message that my claim will not be effective until Tournament 4 (Feb 28-Mar 6) The Honda Classic. It would be great if players dropped on Tuesday would become free agents either right away or after 24 hours so we could still pick them up before the current week's tournament starts.

    It’s because you were awarded Fitzpatrick with your first claim and then went to the bottom of the waiver priority. Wouldn’t be fair if the guy with the highest waiver priority could get 4 guys before anyone else each week.

    I had the nice distinction of losing this week even though I had the 1st and 3rd place guys. Thanks for missing the cut Stallings and Putnam! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. I'm not sure if this is something I found on SuperSpeed's website or if it was said in a call at one point, but these are the numbers I have written down for training stick to driver speed correlation. Green 19%, Blue 15%, Red 12%. My max training numbers versus actual driver speed is right on to the projections. If I had done this three weeks ago it would have been different though as I just recently saw my 2nd big jump during week 16 or 17 of the training. My driver speed was based on a day where I did not do the SuperSpeed program but did warm up before swining. On days when I test my driver right after training I've hit higher numbers that are probably not realistic at this point. It's a good ballpark tool but I wouldn't get upset if your numbers end up off by a decent amount.

    PGA was going to update their list before the tournament started, but in honor of Kevin Na they slow played it. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Hello again! How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I've been playing golf for about 30 years. I originally started the game because my older brother played and we had a large back yard to hit wedges. My handicap usually hovers in the 5 - 6 range. I'm hoping to lower that this year after spending the entire winter doing the SuperSpeed program and purchasing an Arccos system to track my shots. What do you love about golf? I love the challenge and variety of golf. You can play multiple rounds at the same course and never have the same shot twice. It's a game that can never be mastered but gives you just enough glimpses of greatness that you keep coming back to it. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I've been reading the site for a few years now but really made an effort to contribute more in 2018. Being picked for the SuperSpeed program also forced me to log in daily to check up on my fellow testers and share my experiences with the training. So far so good! Where are you from? What is your home course? Born in Wisconsin, lived in Minneapolis for about 10 years, and have been back in Wisconsin for the last 7 years. Most of the courses I play are in the Milwaukee area. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best is the quality of golf. You wouldn't think a state that commonly sees only 6 months of nice weather would have many great public courses but there's quite a few fantastic tracks. Whistling Straits, Blackwolf Run, Erin Hills, SentryWorld, and Sand Valley just to name a few. Worst part is obviously the long winters. What do you do for a living? Senior Analyst for a global recovery audit firm. Boring computer work mostly . How’d you pick your user name? The name of the mascot from my alma mater and CC for Country Club...or Carbon Copy....or Common Core....or Comedy Central....
  10. Anyone else see Mickelson doing a couple of quick SuperSpeed "rebound" swings with his driver during the round on Sunday? Ian Baker-Finch even mentioned that Phil was a big believer in the speed sticks. I know SuperSpeed has mentioned Phil before but it was still pretty cool to hear them talk about it during a Sunday broadcast.

    At first glance it seems pretty solid. Looks like we’ll have to wait until Monday to see the final stats though. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. I've been meaning to retest my driver swing speed ever since I saw a 1 mph drop from Level 1 to the end of Level 2. Unfortunately rain, snow, ice, and temperatures colder than Antartica have prevented me from going outside. My basement ceiling is tall enough to swing a driver but not quite big enough to hit real golf balls. I also don't have a net (ricochet city! ). I tried swinging with no target but received mixed results so I found a small piece of foam to use. It's still not a perfect testing environment but it got the job done. The results: I finally saw a 2nd bump and my average driver swing speed has increased to 115mph. That's a 3.6% jump from my Level 1 speed and a total speed increase of 10.6% from Day 1!!! That's nuts. Here's my beautiful foam target with the final driver speed this morning.

    That’s awesome. My favorite Beatles song with my co-favorite muppet.

    Same thing. 8 of my 10 are scheduled to play. I’ll be happy if I somehow get 2 of those picks correct. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
