  1. Went out to start my practice/testing of the @GolfSub70 Sycamore 004 Mallet putter. Need to find a new practice green since these start aeration of greens over the next 3 days. Decent session though. Tried to post my First Impressions so far but running into error issues. Everyone, please understand I'm trying to figure out what's what as well as starting my testing on this new putter.

  2. I have to say I'm happy where I am. Getting older has slowed me down, I'm much less flexible than I used to. But I'm playing better golf now than when I was younger. Play to my strengths and don't take as many wild shots as before. I try to keep " no injury" in my thoughts so I don't go over board. So yes, I feel good at where I'm at.

  3. For sure I'm more in the serious fun side. I do enjoy the game immensely, and if I'm not in league play, I still take my rounds seriously as I try to do the best I can. As we all run into it, some rounds are just ugly so before I find myself in that depression I stop with score and for the rest of the time just try some oddball shot combinations just to see how they come out. Never anything weird on greens. They are too precious an area.  Instead of a SW out of a bunker I'll try my 8 or in a divot in the fairway I'll try to hit it thin on purpose to see how it reacts. As Rob stated there are times when it is a pure stress relief, I'll usually head to the range for that session. Many times I have put an imaginary face on the ball and let it sail>

  4. @zak2070 hey man. Welcome to the forum. Hope you find answers to your questions and are able to share your experiences. As far as a "smart ball"... are you $%$#@^&^%$ crazy?? Seriously I would not as I'm not real tech savvy nor do I have an interest. Unless of course it was very inexpensive, floated and motored back to shore or beeped in the tall grass or woods. Now I might pay a dollar more if I whistled and came rolling back to me.  Okay enough of my BS. Seriously, good luck on your endeavor. Enjoy your efforts and have some fun, but don't spend all your time in the garage shop. Get out for a round now and than. Good luck man.

  5. I buy my shoes at the end of season as last year's model during the sales. My current FJ are going on 6 years at approximately 300 miles per year. I replace the inserts each year but these bad boys are still waterproof, and we get a lot of heavy dew in the mornings here in mid MI. I do have a newer pair that I generally wear when playing early afternoons. When they wear out or don't provide wetness protection I'll trash them to the range bucket for use there.

  6. @Bang60, I'm sorry to hear that. But at least you got your refund, so you can try other sources for that hybrid. Problem may have happened as an accident in the warehouse where goods were damaged, to a truck was vandalized and some stuff stolen from it. Sorry it happened though. Hang in there.

    Sub 70 Sycamore 004 Mallet Putter- Official MGS Forum Review by Dick Erdmann


    While waiting for my testing subject to arrive, I've started with data collection using my current putter on the practice green.  Capturing shot result data at the 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 21 foot distances. Concluded my last round of the year using my current putter. It was not pretty, played an unfamiliar course while camping near by  and after 9 holes had made 21 putts. Ooof!

    @Dweed even though I have a hybrid approach with paper and electronic I still carry a yardage book for my home course. Over time I’ve marked it for my landing zones for tee shots, 100 yard arc from the middle of the green, and it holds my list of current clubs with carry and distance. The electronics help, but the brain is what helps me with course management. 

    @Hacker60521 glad that works for you. Lot of good info there.

  9. Maybe I missed it. Hard getting cell reception while camping. I've read a lot of folks experiences. I do 100% agree, do some research first. What I'm missing is...I haven't read any input from people that consider themselves to be "fitters", whether part time or as part of their current job operations. What do fitters say? What should we be asking and or coming to see you, what expectations should we have?

  10. I'm 100% paper. I refer to the card map often during the round. I use gps for basic distances. It's part of my routine to add score after round figure gir and fairways hit, manually. Keep using brain so I don't loose it. No other reason. My routine to surprise myself at the end.

    3W-5W-4h set up for me, but I could see myself testing out a 2h and 3h down the road. One of the guys in my Sunday crew has driver and irons only.

    Have to admit, the 3W isn’t my “best friend” but I generally do OK with it and really need that gap filler.  Welcome to the forum. Hope you enjoy. Welcome.

    I always struggled with woods off the deck. I now play a 17* super hybrid with a right handed adapter (I'm left handed) so playing at 15*

    On that note I need callaway to bring back the 17* lefty options on their new super hybrids.
