  1. So I had some time to kill the other day so I hit Golfers Warehouse in RI. They just got the F8 One Length Irons in and they gave me the set and left me alone in a bay. I really don't trust the monitors there but regardless out of the box I was pretty much down the middle with center of the face contact with every iron. I've been eyeing single length Irons for awhile so it was great to see these results. Question is with those initial results do I pull the trigger and buy or get fit at Pete's on Long Island? Nice thing about Golfers Warehouse is a 90 day return policy so if they are a bust I take them back and blow the credit at the store. With Pete's I'm all in. Thoughts?

  4. I buy a lot of clubs, even after a bad round I blame the clubs. Either way the forged have the best distance dispersion in any club I've played. Plus/minus about 5 yards on well struck shots. With the hot metals I would say about 15 yards on the the longer irons and 10 yards or so on the shorter irons. Gap wedge was way out of whack for me in that it was a lot shorter than the progression should be. Also the hot metals out of the rough would often go 30 yards too far.

  5. I'm a big Mizuno fan. Started the year with an 11 index and was fit for the Hot Metals. MOI matched set with Project X LZ 5.5 shafts. My distances were all over the place across all clubs, 5-G. I was never quite sure how far I was going to hit it. I hated the turf interaction and my handicap jumped to 15.8. After about 20 rounds traded them in and moved to the 900 Forged with exact same specs. For me the difference is night and day between the 2. Very consistent distances, balls hold the greens much better and turf interaction is much improved. I haven't gotten any better at golf trust me, but the forged IMO are just a better club all around. Handicap has gotten back down to just above 12 just because of the improved iron play. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  6. Try looking at the hole while you putt inside of 5 feet. Focus on a blade of grass behind the cup and nothing else and you will watch putts drop like never before. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  7. One out of maybe every 10 rounds I'm a club longer with my irons. Can't explain why other than maybe weather, barometric pressure, who knows but can really throw me off. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  8. I'm not sure why I find this so interesting but I do....good luck Stud! Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  9. My ah ha moment was getting fit for iron shafts. No more fat or thin shots at all. Granted, I'm not always straight but I never practice so finding clubs that work with what I've got changed everything for me. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  10. I was watching the PGA event earlier and Jon Rahm was 9 of 9 putting from 10-15' for the week. I'd guess that is better than the average tour level guy. Also read the blog post regarding the accros CEO. He thought his putting was bad but it turned out he wasn't getting close to the hole. Check it out and it may not be as bad as you think.

  11. I look at the hole from about 5 feet in and it works great. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  12. Haha, nope, I just pull the trigger on the putt wherever I am in the rhyme but now that you said something this new found success I'm sure will become useless. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. So I've been putting horribly all summer. A friend told me to think about anything but putting while putting. For whatever reason I've settled on Andrew Dice Clay nursery rhymes and I'll be damned if it hasn't helped a ton. I literally say the rhymes out loud in my head if that makes sense. I start the rhyme right when I stand over the ball to putt and have changed nothing else. Since the tip 29 consecutive holes without a 3 jack and a lot more one putts rolling in. Prior to this I had 3 - 5 three putts a round. Hickory dickery dock seems to work the best. Anyone else do anything or tried something similar with great results? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Buy a 60 degree 6 bounce wedge. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  15. I have around 25 rounds under my belt this year and have tried q star tour, snell mtb, z star, duo, duo u, gamer soft, gamer, chrome soft and e6 speed. At the end of the day 20 rounds shooting 85-95 and 5 rounds shooting 79-82. All low rounds were with the e6 speed. I want a ball that stops on the greens and it doesn't, I want a ball I can shape off the tee and it doesn't but damn for whatever reason I just score better with that ball than anything else. I guess Bridgestone is right when they say their 3,000,000 ball fittings are why they created the e6 for guys like me. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  16. A three putt is like masturbating. You feel bad after you do it but you know you'll do it again. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  17. What has really helped me is learning about eye dominance in putting. I'm a right eye dominant right hander and moving the ball to the middle of my stance and using a minimal offset putter has helped a ton. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  18. I have walked off several times due slow play. Might be time for me to step up and join a club. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  19. Hey All, So I started wearing progressive lens glasses this year and never thought much of it when playing golf so I just kept wearing them. I really just need them for magnification so I like wearing them to read the scorecard. Needless to say it has lead to my worst golf in years. I've been sniffing around new irons, trying news balls, putters, you name it. Decided to lose the glasses for a couple of rounds and played my best 2 rounds in 4 years back to back. Probably because I can't see what I'm doing. I would like to see they scorecard but really don't want to mess with cheaters on the course. What do you guys do in this situation? Thanks, Wedgie Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  20. Thanks for the tips. When clubbing up do you still expect a fat shot or is the goal cleaner contact? Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  21. Simple as that? Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  22. Hey guys, need some help. It has really been a wet spring in the Northeast and a couple of the courses I play don't seem do be draining at all. Water isn't seeping up but definitely spongy. Anyway, I play a really low bounce Mizuno iron set and am hitting a lot of fat shots. I figured I just sucked but found a dry course and proceeded to shoot my best round in 5 years with no fat shots. I'm curious if anyone does anything different while playing in wet/spongy conditions like choke down, club up, etc.... Any help is appreciated. Wedgie Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
