  1. This is a good way to look at it. Now that I think about it, my main concern came when my 52 was carrying close to a standard PW for me, almost. I thought my short irons were losing spin and encroaching/shortening my gaps into the longer irons. Looking through ARCCOS and other info, I think you may be right. My gaps are more consistent and each iron has gotten a tad longer. It could be that before the BX My shorter irons were spinning or ballooning slightly, and now I’m carrying properly. I really want to get on a Trackman just for gapping when COVID has subsided. Cheers! Be well. Sent f
  2. A friend and I split two dozen Bridgestones: one dozen tour bx and one dozen tourbxs, then we split them with each other. Made our own “demo dozen”. I’m excited to see how these balls have changed from 2018 to 2020. What I’m looking for, if anyone has recommendations: the tour bx 2018 is perfect for me off the tee and down to about 6 iron, from 7 down though it seems like there may be a lack of spin? The symptom I’m experiencing could best be described as the ball “sailing” and I hit my shorter irons and wedges too long surprising me. Any thoughts? I am also trying the ProV1X left dash whi
  3. John/NY Tensei Pro Orange 7tx 114 mph What if anything? I am satisfied with distance, however I would not turn down more! My main desire is continuous improvement on dispersion. I have full access to a large hitting bay with Trackman. Would love to do a write-up! Thanks for all you do. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  9. This is all really great info! I really appreciate it folks. I may be able to put together two days for golf, but it’s not the sole purpose. Good excuse to go back! As of right now, I’m thinking Troon North-Pinnacle, and heading out for dinner together. I may try and do 36 on that day though, so maybe traveling to another course. I’ve never really travelled out of the Northeast for golf besides one trip to North Carolina. This has ignited a fire to do so, as well as really good conversations with my wife to travel more and include golf in the itinerary. Will have to come after the new
  10. Thanks gaussman1! Yeah, we’re there for six days, and most of it is filled already with non-golf activities (unfortunately). I’ll check out Grayhawk and the others. I did try to find out info on Ping and fittings, tours, etc. I read they have moved fittings offsite to their certified fitter locally. I’m going to take a swing though and email them to see what can be done. Even if it’s just a tour. I did a fitting at Titleist on Manchester Lane, and the tour of their ball research area was great. I like the idea of golf and then my wife can meet me for a nice dinner and sunset. Sent fr
  11. My wife and I are expecting our second child in July, so we are taking one last big trip for awhile. We decided on Arizona (flying from NY). Opening up discussion here to my trusted advisors: I have one full day to myself (she’ll be at a spa) to golf and go to golf related places. What course should I play? Places to go? PXG? Troon North? TPC? I’ll be alone for the whole day, which I don’t mind. We’ll be splitting time in Sedona and Scottsdale. Thank you in advance! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. I am currently gaming the TEE CBX fairway and really like it. Let’s us know how it works for you. It will work more like a “sub zero” lower spin wood though, from what I’ve experienced. Before the CBX, I used a cobra fairway and it launched plenty high/tons of forgiveness. Cobra has been named numerous times here, so just wanted to add to that list! If you like the Adams hybrid, have you looked at their fairway woods? My favorite 5 wood of all time was a Tight Lies. Total mindless wonder. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. The company I used to work for had a factory in Lexington, KY that I took customers to every year. After the factory tour we always made our way to the Buffalo Trace Distillery where they make some of the best bourbon known to man. I was able to secure a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 18 yr, which was enjoyed over Thanksgiving with my two brothers. They are my closest and best friends, and it was truly a special experience with a special bourbon. I mixed the Pappy name with my last name: Roylance. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
