  1. "I love the way Reed plays - for me that’s enough" That quote is good for me as well. He may not be my choice for a casual Saturday round at my course but in a best ball/scramble type tournament, he is one I would want on my team. He goes after it.
  2. I would be interested in the Maxfli Tour/TourX review sooner than later. Good ball for me, would not have believed it had a friend not given me a couple to try. Very interested in comparing Maxfli results to others I game (ProV1, Snell MTB-X, Chromesoft). I just appreciate these Ball Report testing results. Absolutely love the format/content. Think nearly everyone serious about golf ball tech can benefit from these reports.
  3. ALL TIME: #12 TP Mills is my all time favorite design for a blade followed closely by a copper Ping Anser. So many of the other more popular/famous companies have copied those designs. Kinda like the Anser/Ping has been copied by just about everyone. Not intended to be negative just pointing out a couple of classic, timeless designs that are well respected that serve as a design template if you will for many of the putters available since those were created. Other all time designs based on type: Odyssey #9 and Bobby Grace 18 Blade, Ping Shea, and Scotty Cameron Go-Lo #3 are my favorite "mid mallet" styles all time. Odyssey #7 for my full size mallet all time. And 8802 in its own category, just love a classic 8802 (Wilson) and Bobby Grace has his version, Macgregor Iron Masters. This is my favorite style for fast hard breaking bent grass greens.
  4. I had not seen this. Thanks for posting. Pretty nice layout with quality videos/information.
  5. Great question. When my sons were learning to play full rounds for their junior golf tournaments (PGAJL and USKIDS) I would always call the pro-shop and inquire. Would explain my situation that we were walking and I was caddying/teaching. Just about always was able to get on course and play/have time to teach as we went. I emphasized pace of play with my boys but still was able to teach due to planning ahead. Maybe you could reach out and inquire when are some good times that you can play without fear of being rushed. Learning requires some time/thought with your shots, approach to learning course management, etc. I would try to play when the course is not too crowded. And you can always let people play through. Good luck.
  6. I think you are pretty close to where you should be. That model has the optimum mass placement weighting (i.e. weight positioned toward toe area). I use to have this exact model wedge, loved it. Your angle down (AOA) plus the turf affect where on the grooves (like 3rd groove up, 4th, etc) your strikes are, which imo affects the feel as well. Here's a process I use when establishing a wedge pattern marking on the face. I measure or find the balance point with this : https://www.golfworks.com/golf-mechanix-club-head-cg-locator/p/gm1024/ . Helps me understand what I am feeling and where my strikes are in reference to the balance / center of the face. With that model Maltby wedge, if some of the ball marks are a little toward the toe but still some right in the middle of the club head then I would say that model is good for you since the optimum weight placement mass is part of the area you are striking the ball. Of course lie angle adjustments can also dial in more center face contact. But short answer I would say it looks good.
  7. While I am perfectly happy with my combo of Ping, Callaway and Wishon wedges I decided to order some Maltby TSW wedge heads to do a little testing. Already got friends asking me to build a few so they can try. Going to pair the first one with a 100gm Robin Arthur Extreme Spin wedge shaft. One of my favorite graphite wedge shafts. We'll see how it goes before building another. I have too many wedges.
  8. I prefer to share knowledge and experience in a constructive positive approach. There are times regarding certain subjects in which I am qualified to offer information that I may refrain if I feel the person(s) are argumentative or imo lacking in knowledge they think they have. The internet is full of forums that imo facilitate negative dialog. Its one thing to have civil debate but i have learned its a lot like that one friend, work acquaintance or family member that wants to argue just to argue. MGS in my experience has been a wealth of knowledge combined with some constructive criticism and civil debate. Sent from my SM-N960U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  9. Absolutely a comment did affect me once when I first started playing. I was like 12 yrs old. Another junior golfer golfer said to me on the 1st tee "your swing is interesting why do you exhale at top of your swing " ? So I asked why does it matter? He said "with that hitch at the top of my swing I better learn to breathe right or into trees a guarantee ". I be darned if I didn't hit every tree off the tees the rest of day. Told the pro I needed help, he laughed and began telling me to get mentally stronger with thicker skin. It did motivate me to work hard so I could get revenge on that kid. I did after about 10 tries. But I do appreciate the lessons learned from it. Sent from my SM-N960U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  10. Absolutely loved this review/report format. The true ball $$ is a great addition for consumers to factor when researching which ball to try and/or compare among ball brands. Looking forward to more of these reviews.
  11. What brand and type iron (i.e 1-piece blade, cavity-back w/variable face thickness, etc) do you play that yields the high flight you are getting? Sent from my SM-N960U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. Sure others on MGS can offer better suggestions than me but I have ordered .355 putter shafts a lot over years.. Here's link for KBS offers: https://kbsgolfshafts.com/shop/ct-tour-putter/ Other option would be to reach out to an authorized Cameron dealer to inquire possible options (i e might can order shaft with a Cameron shaft band).

  13. Lots of options depending who you ask. I have high swing speed / near scratch golfer friends that do as Rev stated in his response to you. I however have always preferred softer flex & feel in longer irons, even soft stepped to get what I was after. I am just not good having to swing hard with long irons. I do swing hard with 8 iron down and play those irons true to flex. I am not high swing speed. Hopefully you can demo/test before going all in. Sent from my SM-N960U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. Strongly suggest you advise the buyer to purchase through Ebay. Verified PayPal accounts only way IMO if you are individual seller (none business). That's only way I have sold to someone on ebay. Sent from my SM-N960U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  15. For decades played traditional (right hand low/right hand golfer) but for about 3 years I switched to left low. While I had success I battled short putt pulls (<7 ft) at times and regardless if I were having a good putting round I never felt completely comfortable in my setup. I recently switched back to the right hand low like I learned the game with and my putting stroke feels natural again. Every now and then I am tempted to go back to left low but I really don't want to get in habit of switching back and forth. Instead I just try to take my time and get my read correct use what feels more natural in my setup which is right hand low.
