  1. Have you tried running a diagnostic test on your 58* wedge? I had a problem with my putter and Arccos replaced the sensor and it seems to be OK now.
  2. Hope you and your buddies have a great time. I can appreciate your excitement as my wife and I are headed to Pinehurst for the first time the week of Labor Day for 3 nights at the resort and playing 4 rounds (Courses 1, 3, 8, and 9), can't see paying the premium to play #2. Just hoping my old bones hold up playing 4 days in a row.
  3. I now have 16 rounds posted using the Arccos system. I started using the system on my iPhone, but have recently been working on using my Apple Watch for shot detection with mixed results. Just this past week Arccos announced a number of improvements with the Arccos Caddie app on the watch and I am looking forward to seeing better results. I do find the club distances extremely helpful, especially the distance range for each club. I feel the system has helped me start seeing more consistent results in my shots and scoring. I still have much to learn about all the information available and how to use it to my advantage. There is an abundance of data available, but I think you need to be careful that getting to deep into the data doesn't take the enjoyment out of the game.
  4. My problem is a bit different, it's more about depth perception. I had a detached retina followed by a cataract in that eye and those events have led to my either leaving putts short of well past the hole. I realize that sounds like an excuse for poor putting but did not have that much of a problem before the eye problems. I have tried just using the good eye, closing the bad eye and that just seems to make it worse. Anybody have a similar problem and if so how did you deal with it? Same issue judging distance but I can manage that with range finder and playing partners. Thanks
  5. Received my new PXG 0811XF Gen 2 driver Tuesday just under 5 weeks but as promised between 4-6weeks. Used it for the first time yesterday and I have to say the fitting I had over the phone was spot on. The driver is a big improvement over my old Calloway XR, now I just have to get my swing under better control having developed some bad habits with the old driver. Thanks PXG for the great deal!
  6. Handicap 16.8 Location - The Villages, FL Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/rick.a.gray/ Twitter - @ragtag2 Instagram - ragtag2 Expect to play 16-20 rounds in the next 8 weeks. Driver - Callaway ZR Irons - Callaway Apex 16 Hyrbids - Callaway FtZ Putter - Pind Anser
  7. Just ordered my PXG 0811XF Gen 2 driver today. It was hard to find an available time for an on site fitting so I tried their phone fitting service and feel pretty good about the result. The phone fitting matches very close to the TruFit online fitting I took late last year. The discount must really be boosting sales as it looks like it could be 4-6 weeks before I get the new club. More to follow after I spend a little time with the club.
  8. Now that I'm starting to get up to speed on the site, would like the badge for Broke 70. Most recently March 30, 2020, number of time prior to that just not a consistent achievement.
