  1. Thank you guys for the input. I'm hoping a permanent ball is the fix. If not I'll blame my irons. [emoji3] Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  2. I played the other day and when I tee'd off it was 35 and I was a club shorter which I would expect. Warmed up to 55 after the first 9 then the problems began again. Same e6 speed ball the entire round and wind was fairly light all day. It probably is me more than the ball but since I never play “tour” balls and the one time I did my yardage's were spot on it got me thinking. I am going to stick with the Z Star and see what happens over the course of several rounds and not base everything on one round with the Z Star. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  3. I have always struggled with distance control. I'm not talking half shots from 80 yards, I'm talking full swings. I may hit a club 150 on one hole, 170 on the next then 130 a couple holes later. Sometimes it is a miss hit and I understand wind and other factors may cause this but I'm wondering if anyone finds certain balls offer better distance control? I have never really settled on a certain ball and often play lower compression balls from the duo to e6. I seem to play best in the 55-75 compression range. Anyway, picked up some Z Stars for a round last weekend and pretty much everything I hit was pin high all day. You can argue no roll out with a urethane ball but I am accustomed to flying the green 2 or 3 times a round with my irons. Can a ball help in this regard? Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  4. Shot an 87 but Arccos had me at a 69. First time breaking 70. I guess it's time to edit the app. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. Having the tech myself I find it has been a distraction as I play. If the tech always worked as advertised I'm sure I'd love it. But until it does I have gone back to just enjoying the game and not worrying about if it picked up each shot or not. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. I look at the putt like anyone else does. Pick a line, address the ball while looking at ball then once I look at the hole I never look down again. If I feel I need to adjust my aim my hands do it naturally without looking at the ball again. What I have found is it helps me follow thru towards the hole or my line. If I have really long putts with a lot of break I look at the ball. Otherwise always at the back of the cup. Prior to this I'd 2 putt everything for the most part. It hasn't been a magic pill by any means but now I hit a ton more longer putts. If you have any interest in trying it I suggest looking at the hole on 5 footers and closer. Not for everyone but I think it is worth everyone trying it on the practice green. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  7. I started looking at the hole while putting and improved a great deal. Converted a few friends along the way too. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. That is awesome...congrats on your personal best! Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  9. I have the Cobra F8 One length Irons and I love them more than my wife. I rarely practice so for me they made sense. I was dialed in yesterday and as a 13 handicap I had 8 birdie putts under 10 feet. Only made two but that's another thread. Biggest thing for me has been no more fat or thin shots and distance control with the same ball position every time is much better. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Haha....you're crushing your driver! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I am basically the same age as you, same handicap, regular shafts in irons and stiff in woods with a steep angle of attack are all the same too. I started last year with the Hot Metals and ended the year with JPX Forged. All Mizuno irons I've ever played are very low bounce which doesn't always mesh well with my steep angle of attack but for me the JPX Forged play a million times better than the hot metals especially when it was wet out. IMO both are worth hitting but I highly recommend hitting them on grass and not astroturf to see which if either work for you. Good luck! Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  12. So I have the force after all! I knew it! Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  13. It is just US. I found a more current chart on USGA.org but can't share a link from my iPad. Looks like it follows the chart above closely and tells me at 13 I'm not as good as I thought. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  14. Sorry, I should have mentioned the source. I found it on The Grint and it was published by the USGA in 2013. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  15. I stumbled across this chart of male handicap averages. It is 5 years old but I've got to think it is still fairly accurate. I'm curious if the members of this forum follow this chart, are lower in handicap, higher? Maybe STUDque can figure out how to do a poll. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  16. I believe the recommendation is to cut the screw portion of the sensor off and tape the sensor on with something like electrical tape. Just make sure you don't cover the actual sensor. Option 2 would be to add putts manually but you must have a synced putter sensor to allow for that option. So sync the sensor then leave it at home. Option 2 may not be the best option for the official testing but it does identify a compatibility issue with some putters. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  17. I was fit for an ST 180 hitting against a screen. Ended up with Tensei Blue shaft set at 11.5 degrees. Took it to Florida to actually play outside and hated it. Won a Cobra F8 while in Florida and was fit at a range by the Cobra rep set at 8.5 degrees with the stock shaft and loved it. For the hell of it I adjusted the Mizuno down to 9.5 degrees and it has been a game changer. Straight as an arrow when the Cobra was a slight fade and picked up about 10 yards on the F8. Also I am getting this extra yardage playing on wet slow fairways in 40 degree weather and Florida was 70s and dry. Everything at sea level. Hit this thing if you get a chance but also get it fit properly. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  18. Nice, enjoy! It is certainly fun to play around with and look at the data. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  19. Sucked me in too but they have lowered prices on all JPX 900 sets. I think $200 on the tour and forged and $100 on hot metals. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  20. Haha, you aren't being anal but it is better that he answers with a more thorough response. I think Arccos is great and it is best you have all your questions answered before investing in a new phone or whatever solution suites your needs. I found this works for me and is hassle free. If the weather ever cooperates in New England I will spend more time with the app and utilize it to its fullest. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  21. You will receive an extra sensor for your putter, it is solid black, the normal ones are green. If the sensor does not register a putt there is a +/- button to add or subtract putts. It misses a lot of putts in my case but does well picking up chips, bump and runs and sand shots. When you use a hybrid for example to bump and run it will automatically add it as a chip and not a full shot so it won't impact your total club average yardage. Lastly, you must have a putter connected to use the +/- option to add putts. If you do not it assumes 2 putts most of the time. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  22. Yep, I'm going to stand down and let the official reviews take it from here but will continue to gladly answer questions. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  24. I've only played about 6 rounds with the F8 Ones so I can't really give a long term review but I traded my Mizunos in over the weekend as I prefer the F8s. I generally play low compression golf balls so it is hard to compare feel since these marshmallows make all clubs feel nice. I can say the Mizunos gave better feedback on mishits and punished you a little more. I feel the Mizunos had better distance dispersion but I played a lot more rounds with them and I am just adjusting to the new clubs. Biggest thing for me was I was losing 4 or 5 shots a round hitting it fat or thin. After a bit of adjustment it just doesn't happen anymore and I have hit more balls right at the flag then I did all last summer in my short time with these. My iron play has always killed me. I have kept stats on the Grint app for 5 years and averaged about 4 GIR and I am up to 6 GIR this year. It will definitely go up once I get a better handle on distances of each clubs because again, these clubs are really straight for me. The biggest adjustment has been trusting the club to do its job and just put the same swing on every shot with the same ball position. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
