  5. I was in your place in late May. What worked for me was the following: 1. Stopped thinking about my score. I just decided to play each shot as well as I could. No frets about the last shot and no tension with the next. At the end of the round, even if the score wasn't great, I knew I had played each shot as well as I could. It was a great shift in mindset that allowed me to have fun. 2. I stopped focusing on the ball at address and tried to "see" my target in my head. My body/swing seems to respond well to this. Not ball-bound I guess. 3. I listen to this...a lot. Best piece of sports psychology I have ever heard: https://youtu.be/CYp8Hldzd-Q Not sure any of this will help. We are all different. Good luck.

  6. I am one of those guys that is always looking at performance/price ratio with everything. I cannot bring myself to spend the $$$ on Pro 's. That said, last couple of seasons I really liked the Taylormade Project (a) balls. This year, I've been trying out the niche brands, so far Vice and On Core. I really, really liked the Vice Pro+ and may go back to them at some point, but right now I am gaming the On Core Avant. I love this ball. It's lower compression, is long, but has great feel around the greens. Everyone should try them once, anyway. Sent from my 831C using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  7. I've been playing the 9* original for the past two years. I love mine, TBH. I'm not particularly long, but when I hit it on the button it goes 275 - 280ish (although I think that has more to do with proper swing sequencing than the club). Anyway, it's solid, long enough, and--most importantly--pretty straight. I cannot hook this thing and most shots have a very gentle fade at the end. One adjustment I have made that has helped teeing it lower than what might be considered typical. Also, I did have the upgraded Matrix White Tie shaft put in. I also bought the three wood last year, solely on the strength of the driver. IMO, neither club can be beat in the "performance for the price" category. Sent from my 831C using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. I've been wondering the same thing. Did you ever get an answer?
  9. Running a little cool water over the hands is a brilliant idea. Filing this one for future use! Sent from my 831C using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  10. I'm in Glastonbury. Also, been playing at the renovated Keney Park Golf Course the past two seasons, in the men's club. Have you played it? Such a fun track (tract?). Sent from my 831C using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  11. I think you did the youngster a favor. He'll likely learn how to strike the ball better with those clubs rather than GIs, over time. (I wish I was playing 3 times per week) Sent from my 831C using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  13. I'm late to this party, but I bought this TecTecTec off Amazon last year for $149. It's been stellar. It's spot on with the pricier name brands. No issues. Sent from my 831C using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  15. Lamkin Crossline ACE, midsize. Always a fan of Lamkin. I don't use a glove, so these are great for me. Super tacky. Just wipe them with a damp towel to reactivate the tackiness. Midsize just because I like the feel better in my hands. Looks like the REL 3 gen might be getting blown out @ $2.99 per grip at lamkin.com Sent from my 831C using MyGolfSpy mobile app
