  1. Yeah we saw that. My kids are bummed and my wife could couldn’t careless. Then again she’s still pissed about Brady replacing Bledsoe. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  2. I may have to do auto draft and if it’s like football I’ll get Romo in the 2nd round. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  3. I don't have any Lego stock, just can't pay for his college now.
  4. Haha, yes, a small portion of them. It is my son's room. I can take a pic of the Death Star if you want but that Ewok Village is the best IMO.
  5. Never thought I’d get so much mileage out of this but again, I don’t see a problem. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. Having used the SkyTrak a bunch lately it only measures what the ball does and calculates everything else. So it is measuring ball speed, spin, launch angle, side spin and direction. I found it to be very accurate for all those measurements but way off for the calculated club head speed and smash factor in most cases. On the flip side the distances seem to be accurate with what I see on the course so who knows.

    I put in the effort to change into black shorts but putting on two socks would have been a stretch. In addition I have the same Sperry shoes with laces but they were in the garage so again, the effort just wasn't there.
  8. People should also keep in mind the Pats have a first place schedule every year meaning they play the top teams in other divisions. Maybe that is why the Super Bowl loser rarely makes the playoffs the next year. But at the end of the day who cares. Brady to Denver. Home teams hold serve this weekend. Niners go all the way after getting a good look at Lamar during the regular season.
  9. I’ll take a shot at this but I grew up in Kansas a Chiefs fan but root for the Pats now that I live in New England. I think the tuck call was BS and the Raiders got screwed and you know any Chiefs fan hates the Raiders. My belief is most Pats fans think they walk on water and have never broken any rules. My household of born and bred Pats fans fall in the middle in that yeah, they have cheated, got caught, accepted the consequences and moved on. I read an article today how Cower and Shanahan explained how they stole play calls in game and via video but that doesn’t get mentioned. The same article talked about how the Bills opened a gate or something like that to create a wind tunnel when opposing teams are going that direction. NFL caught them but no punishment because they were losing the games anyway. The Trump analogy is probably pretty good in that you are on one side or the other and it is hard as hell to sway anyone the other way. Growing up a Royals fan I hated the Yankees and living so close to Boston it has only gotten worse but I sure did respect their team during the 90s. Did they cheat by taking steroids? I think the consensus is at minimum Clemens did and probably Petit, but so did a lot of other guys on other teams. Maybe that is where the Pats are, they broke some rules but so do a lot of other teams. Their success has magnified all of this but the guys on top are the ones we criticize the most, maybe that is just human nature. Maybe if the Astros won the WS this year after a 20 year run people would make a bigger deal about them stealing signs. My best guess is that die hard New England fans could careless if they are respected by anyone else in the league like most other fans would be if it were their team.

  10. You hit the nail on the head. More posts about the Pats losing than anything else today. Reminds me of my nosy neighbor who worries about what everyone else is doing instead of their own boring problems and make it a point to point out flaws everywhere else. I’m a third generation U. of Kansas grad so I’ve been listening to the same types complaining about Kansas basketball success my whole life. Weak Big 12, cheat to get players, yada yada yada. At least the Pats could close the deal more often than not. The good news is the Pats aren’t going anywhere anytime soon so we will get to listen to this for about 4 more years when Belichick passes Shula in all time wins. Then all bets are off.

  12. A home launch monitor is the best money I've ever spent on golf. Picked up a SkyTrak but it would be nice to have more options with similar data like the Mevo+ may have. Normally I wouldn't practice at all or even pick up a club this time of year. Instead I can't wait to get home and hit balls and it has eliminated the winter golf blues of playing actual golf. I've learned a ton about my game in the short time I've had it such as how to reduce driver spin, best ball position for various clubs and how many swings it takes me to truly warm up. It would be great if the Mevo+ comes in at an aggressive price point so more people can enjoy the benefits.
  13. Sweet, now there are two of us gaming a XXIO driver. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  14. It is SkyTrak software. It is an upgrade from the free software you get with the system. I think it is called play and improve and the up charge is $99. You can track it down at www.skygolf.com. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  15. I game the hollow body Cleveland Launchers and nobody will bend them because they’re too fat. But yeah, the 8 iron could stand to be strengthened a bit. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  16. Thanks for the input. I’m thinking add a 60 degree wedge and a 3 wood. I average about 230 off the tee so I’d like to get a club I can hit at least 200 yards which with roll I can get out of the 3 hybrid but I don’t know if I need 200 carry which I’m not sure I can get. The mapping is really cool and I do think I’ll double check them in the next couple of days to see if they are close to the same. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  17. I’ve been doing a ton of things with my new SkyTrak launch monitor and found it to be pretty spot on in relation to what I’d expect out on the course. Today I decided to do my first bag mapping and the results didn’t really surprise me. My question is what would you do to fill the gaps? Before you answer I did not hit driver. The 2 hybrid and driver are the same club, I just didn’t know how to relabel them. The 2 hybrid in the chart is a Cleveland Halo 2 hybrid in regular flex, the driver in the chart is a Cleveland Halo 2 hybrid in stiff flex. Both should go but how would you fix the gapping issues you see? Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  18. When I first got my Garmin I had all notifications on. It was great for about 10 minutes. I have trimmed it down to texts and flight info since I travel for work a lot and would really miss them if they were gone. I’m pretty sure you have the option to turn off all notifications if you are in an activity such as playing golf but I can’t remember for sure. On another note I just got the 3 pack of sensors for my wedges because my watch misses a lot of short chip shots. I’ll post my thoughts when I actually play. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  19. Yep, the wait is the hardest part. I just figured out how to connect the Skytrak to my internet so I can play on courses. That is the closest to the pin challenge and I’m not sure how it calculates a score and I didn’t do well but I am the leader in the clubhouse. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  20. No such luck. Walked 9 at Pebble Beach. Game on THEZIPR23. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  21. I’ll try to remember to take some pics tomorrow. I looked at The retractable screen but went with just a net and no screen with a monitor. I hit about 500 balls today and I am so much better after drinking beers. Instead of hitting the range before a round I need to hit the bar. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  22. Cool, enjoy! I got one for the “family” and fired it up for the first time yesterday. It was a 5 beer setup with the net and the mat I got. Hit about 100 balls and it is a ton of fun. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  23. Wow, I guess its time for me to bring back Team Bardle. That is awesome! Going to be tough to catch you at this point. I’m happy for not only Bardle but the Stud Division. I feel my rejecting Bardle’s trade offer week one for my tight end has helped him win the whole thing. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  24. You have a SkyTrak, do you think there would be any benefit to getting the $99 software to measure his results and progress over the winter? His swing looks great by the way. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
