  3. Reserved - Stage 1 Hi Guys! My name is Lowell. I want to thank Cleveland and mygolfspy.com for the opportunity to try out these wedges. I started playing golf relatively late. (mid 30's) I was managing a night club outside Boston, the owner was an avid golfer and played every day. He was always looking for someone to go out with him, I said "I'm in"! Went to the local Hermans Sporting Store (it's a Boston thing), picked a set of clubs off the shelf and started playing 2 or 3 times a week. The best thing was I got to call it "business golf" so I wasn't worried what time I got home and the owner typically picked up the tab. I didn't suck but I had a lot to learn. The thing that I remember most was that first time I had a perfect swing and golf shot when everything came together and the ball had a perfect flight and I held the pose. That's when I caught the "golf bug"! Player Bio: Handicap- 15 How long have I played- 20 yrs Region- New England Strengths- used to be short game, now I'm getting off the tee better and short game went south! Weaknesses- see above Whats in your bag: Putter- Ping Crazee Wedges- TaylorMade Rocketbalz Irons- TaylorMade Rocketbalz Drivers- TaylorMade M2 Fairway- TaylorMade M2 rescue I'm a very competitive golfer. Like to make bets and I'll keep pressing until I win. (or we run out of holes!) I can shoot an 84 one day and a 100 the next. I don't generally like people to give me tips on my game BUT, I have listened a couple times that have helped. If my driver is working I will consistently hit it 250+. Another strength I have is the ability to scramble. (driver doesn't always work) My short game has evolved over the last couple years. Historically I would just use the pitching wedge for any shot inside 100 yards. The closer I was I would open my stance and/or "choke up" my grip and/or shorten my back swing. One of the "tips" I payed attention to a couple years ago was to take a fuller swing and hitting down on the ball. All of a sudden the pitching wedge is now my 120-130 yard club. Started using my sand wedge inside 100 yards. It worked for a while but then I realized I'm doing the same thing I was doing with my pitching wedge. (open stance, choke up grip, etc) Then I dug an old TaylorMade Burner Bubble lobe wedge out of the garage! On so the battle goes. Currently my wedge play has been inconsistent, I'm often using the same club for shots from 20-100 yards out. One thing that has improved is my chipping just off the green, I used to rely on the "bump and run" shots using a 7 iron. (safe but hard to make it accurate) I've been focused on the short chips with some success. I just received the Cleveland wedge set and it will take a while to dial them in. Played twice and I really like the feel and control. I'm running out off golf season up here and hope to be able to begin to tighten the distance control before the snow flies! Again, I'm really appreciate the mygolfspy community and Cleveland for the chance to test these wedges. I was playing in a member/member tournament when I got the notification that I was chosen to test them, told all my golf buddies and they were just as excited as I was! (and a little jealous I think) I would be remiss in not thanking my wife for her tolerance of my "8" hour rounds, golf trips, more golf hats/shirts then I can ever use, etc! See you guys on the course!
  4. 1. Purchased TaylorMade M2 driver and rescue. 2.I enjoy reading topics and reviews from golfers with similar handicaps. (we're not all low single digits!) 3.To soon to tell, getting a little more distance. 4.Yes.Never been much of a driving range guy. Took the new clubs to the range prior to playing, nice tune up, I feel helped. Gone to the range last two rounds and see improvement in that part of the game. (then another part goes south!)
  5. Happy National Golf Day!

  6. New member to MYGOLFSPY but have enjoyed learning about the site and network of golfers by following friends on Facebook. Picked up golf relatively late. (mid 30's) But caught the golf bug quickly. I work in NYC all week and look forward to my golf therapy every weekend. I look to improve some aspect of my game every-time I go out. What I enjoy most are the friendships formed on the course and the competition. Looking forward to being part of the MYGOLFSPY team. thx
