    Hip Kickers!

    Your golf game is starting to sound like my college years.
  2. Just want to raise and hand and shout reverend. This has helped me out tremendously off the tee. Not sure if it's due to playing off the rack or not. Definitely not saying it will help you @GolfSpy MPR, but I am a firm believer in ball placement for my own game. Looking forward in following your journey this year!

    Welcome to MGS, Lungs! Fellow Carolinian here only about an hour to the east of you. Glad you have joined us.

    Made where?

    I am pretty sure that most if not all Titleist balls sold in USA are made in the USA. Callaway has some still made here in USA. Taylormade assembles some of their balls here. Finally, Bridgestone supposedly makes their premium balls, plus the e-line of balls down in @ole gray's neck of the woods in Georgia. This is a few years old but I assume most of it still holds true: http://madeinusastuff.blogspot.com/2013/12/golf-balls-made-in-usa-titleist.html

    Flat Tires

    Can we rename this the Flat Tires and Nightmares thread?

    Whats your best joke?

    That's the truth. Now we know how/why the impractical joker boys got onto that course. You and me both. Maybe we just need to steal other people's Top Flites?

    MGS Naughty or Nice list

    Copy and pasted from the comment section: Ben Hogan Golf 1 hour ago Hi Jackson – We couldn’t accommodate MyGolfSpy’s testing schedule. Our new products will be launched after they have been thoroughly tested and are worthy of Mr. Hogan’s signature. MyGolfSpy needed products on 1/1/19 for testing, and we weren’t going to submit any product that we didn’t believe was ready for market. Reply MyGolfSpy 49 mins ago The actual response we got from Ben Hogan Golf for not participating is below: 1.Their new product launch schedule is fluid. 2. They were very concerned and disappointed by the editorial coverage and negative comments in the Ben Hogan Equalizer wedges in our recent wedge review.

    Would you be interested in MGS Virtual Golf League

    I have been toying with this idea for a few months now, but never tried to put rubber to the proverbial road. I am in!

    Whats your best joke?

    I'm with you. That would have made for an extremely frustrating day on the golf course!

    Well considering they put up with our shenanigans...I am going to have to lump them all into the same pot.

    Flat Tires

    Those things just look and now act like nightmares. I could think of a few herbicidal remedies to try, but I wouldn't be telling you guys anything new. Just remind me to keep my shoes on the next time I am west of the Mississippi!

    Flat Tires

    @Kenny B whoa those are some nasty looking things. They look way worse than the sand spurs we get around the coast.

    What are these devilish weeds y'all have out west?!

    Does handicap get taken into account? Because nailing back to back FIR is kind of a big deal
  19. I'll believe it when I see it. I'm not going to complain about lowered prices on G400s. Also, the new colors on the G410 line, are awfully reminiscent to the red used by Nike. I really want to know what tech Ping bought from Nike patents, and is that what we are starting to see in the "blueprint", i500, g700 lines. Especially since those clubs have been so much of a departure from Ping clubs of past.
  20. My big question for 2019 is the G410. The G400, to me, doesn't feel like it has been out that long. Can Ping deliver the magic in back to back releases?
  21. I don't know how you boys in the southern hemisphere were able to test during the winter months. I am about to go stir crazy realizing I only saw a golf course 3 times over the past 2 months. It's on as soon as I get this update done and we have some dry days with that funny looking ball of fire in the sky.

    Ping G410

    And thanks to Golf Digest, we have a very strong idea of what is from Ping-land. Enter the Ping G410 plus. Like was said before it has a 16g tungsten weight for your choice between three spots.
