  1. I have been playing golf for 45 years, I became very active in my early 30's and have played regularly since. I love the game on many levels. As a player I love the fact that you can never master this game. You always have room to improve and age only increases the opportunity for adjusting expectations and improving on a relative scale I believe golf exposes who a person is. You can not "hide". You can learn more about a person in one round of golf than you might learn in years of casual contact. The "cheater" is exposed, as is the "whiner or excuse maker" as is the "great guy" the person with integrity, the person you can trust with your wife and your wallet while you are away for a month. Many of my lifelong friendships originated on a golf course. I have been following My Golf Spy for years. I think you are truly providing a service to the consumer cutting past the hype and exposing the realities beyond the marketing. I read the postings constantly, listen to the podcasts, read the annual reviews etc. I think this is a great source of high level golf related informaiton I am brought to My Golf Spy seeking information, true reviews, and connection to other informed golf enthusiasts I am from Colonie NY, I am a member at Colonie Country Club and have played most courses in my region over the past 40 years. The best thing about my region is the access to a wide variety of courses, designed by some of the legends such as Ross, Mac Kensie, Tillinghhast, MacDonald, Raynor, Emmet etc etc. This area has a rich history and the courses reflect this history. Courses such as The Sagamore, Glens Falls Coutry Club, Taconic, Dorset Field Club, Equinox, Ekwanoc, Wolfreds Roost, Troy CC, Mohawk, Edison, and recent additions such as Colonie CC, Saratoga National, Links at Unionvale, Okemo, and so many others feature works by some of the best golf architects past and present. This is a great region to play golf. The downside without question is the short season I am a semi retired consultant My user name lacks originality as it is basically my initials. My lifelong nickname is Smitty

  3. I agree with the comment on maxed out center hit technology. The area with potential for MASSIVE improvement is AI applied to shaft development and the tightening of specs so a player can select a shaft for swing speed with a ( for example) 1-10 rated butt, mid and tip spec. Combining AI with swing profiles/ speed and tightening manufacturing specs to produce a defined, measured shaft profiles will be the next area of dramatic driver distance improvement. Your face is maxed out, your shaft has HUGE potential for specialization and improvement. I anticipate a day when you send a video of your swing, some data on swing speed, and you are FIT to a profile that can be produced to exact spec. Right now you test a "labeled" shaft, order it, and receive a shaft in a "RANGE" that may or may not be even remotely similar to the shaft you tested. The manufacturing spec is too broad, the inspection process is almost non existent and yet we order $500 shafts with a label that may be far from accurate. This is the area of greatest potential improvement in my opinion
  4. John - New York Handicap 5 Clubs: Ping I500. Ping G700, and Mizuno Hot Metal Pro ( self admitted club junkie) All are 4-P stiff shaft 7 Iron Carry 155
  5. Driver - John - New York Handicap 4.6 Current Ball - Pro V 1 x Looking for ball speed I am an avid senior golfer that competes in several local/regional tournaments. Fighting to maintain distance as I grow older
  6. John New York ( Albany area) Handicap- 5.7 Mizuno 850 forged Greatest Strength - Iron distance control and accuracy Greatest Weakness- 60 years old and driver swing speed has declined from 105 to 100. As a result I am begining to fight distance and trajectory issues so technology and shaft selection have moved to the forefront of my thought process.
