  1. The comments on things like this are the best. “Close the internet, he has won”. Funny stuff. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  2. So this is better than just using a regular leather glove? Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  3. Hi, I don't wear a glove when I play and my latest set of clubs have the Golf Pride CP2 grips on them. I've been playing a lot more late in the day and the heat and humidity have made these grips almost impossible for me to hold on to during my swing. 1. Is there a grip that would be better suited for these conditions? 2. Would just buying a glove be the quicker fix? Thanks!
  4. Pfft...I think we'd like to see a little more effort from you next time. [emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. I'd say they odds of your wife out driving me off the tee are much greater than having this happen. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. I would but not you because I'd walk out of the lesson playing blades. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    Boy I wish I could help you here but have never played from a pot bunker. It gets the ball up quickly but I'd hate to give the thumbs up without that experience first hand. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    I purchased one when I started the Launcher HB iron review. It is great for fluffy sand. Gets me out every time as long as I hit sand first. In firm sand I have struggled with it and found that the regular CBX wedge was better. I used to use my 58* for full shots but can't hit this at all for anything other than sand or short chip shots. All in all a good purchase for me since getting out of the sand was my priority. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  12. 1. Coming from the Cobra Single Length irons the flight seems lower to me. I love the Cobra wedges and that has been the hardest part of the Launchers to get used to for me. 2. N/A 3. I have a cheap MaxFli bag from Dicks with 15 dividers and no issues getting them in and out of the bag. If anything the larger heads reduce chatter since they all kind of touch each other already. My durability has been much better than the Cobras and are in line with the durability I have with my Mizuno Hot Metals. EDIT: I forgot to comment on the wind. I have seen some windy days with these and for me since I try to hit everything high and straight they are no different than any other irons I have played in these conditions.
  13. Congrats on both achievements. The key to breaking 80 now lies within the Launcher HB iron reviews. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Whatever you do do not gamble against a man playing the Launcher HB Irons. You've been warned. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. You're a senior with back problems and you still hit it farther than I do but we are very close. That being said I shot the round of my life on a course that was just over 6500 yards about a month ago with a 76. Any farther than that I struggle to be honest. If your back holds up go have fun.

  16. I've been using the Grint for 6 years now. I have used it to play in member guest events without issue for those 6 years. I do the free version but get emails quarterly with a special offer to become a pro member for $15. This year they added the “attest” feature so it helps to have a buddy you play with regularly to attest your scores. I joined a country club and played my first 18 there today and the pro signed me up for a club handicap. He asked if I had a handicap and when I said I used the Grint he said he could use that as a starting point but I said don't worry about it. Had I known I would have gotten more detail.

  18. I drink 4 or 5 beers, get a ride to Dicks Sporting Goods and fire away with all the putters. I pick the one with the second best results and that seems to be what works best for me on the course. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  21. Sorry I can't just share the link since I am mobile. In not so surprising news, Golf Channel and NBC saw record numbers during their coverage of the 2018 Open Championship. There is a very easy explanation for this: Tiger Woods. Woods was not only in contention on Sunday, he led the tournament for a while on the back nine. The first round of The Open on Thursday, which earned a 0.79 overnight rating, was the most watched in its three years on Golf Channel. It was also the most-watched Thursday ever, and the fifth best total day record for the channel between 2006 and 2018. To make things even more impressive, Golf Channel was the number one rated cable sports network for the day by 9%, and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern it was the number one cable sports network by 314%. Friday coverage of the second round was just as impressive, earning a 0.87 overnight rating. The early round coverage was up 4% over 2017, and was up 11% for the day, making it the most-watched weekday broadcast since the 2016 Ryder Cup Friday. The third round on Saturday earned a 3.0 overnight rating, which was up 25% over 2017. It was the highest third round rating since 2013 when Phil Mickelson won, and the second highest overnight rating in a major in 2018 (the Masters leads that category). TV viewership was up 21% over 2017, and streaming viewership was up 23% over 2017. The final round on Sunday is where things get even more impressive and show just how much Tiger Woods being in contention on Sunday in a major means to the sport. Sure Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy were in the hunt, but Tiger moves the needle. NBC Sports' final round coverage saw the best ratings for The Open Championship in 18 years with a 5.0 overnight rating. It is the highest final round overnight rating since Tiger completed the career grand slam in 2000 (which earned a 7.4 overnight rating on ABC). NBC's coverage was also up a staggering 38% over 2017 when Jordan Spieth won at Royal Birkdale. This was the highest rated final round for any major championship since 2015, not including the Masters, when Jason Day's win at Whistling Straights in the PGA Championship earned a 5.1. Tiger Woods is back, and fans of the sport aren't the only ones who are happy. NBC Sports could not have asked for a better weekend. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  22. The grint gives one stroke for the same one stroke penalties you get on the course. They also add .5 strokes for bunkers whether greenside or fairway. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
