  1. Yeah, this could go back and forth all day, so let's not. I think you answered your own question correctly, anyways.
  2. No, I mean really strong, not Navy strong. Joking, couldn't resist....I'm active Air Force. I was actually looking at your profile looking for hints of your age. All I can say is that we all reach a certain point where regular stretching is really important to maintain range of motion and avoid the tightness you're describing. I'm stretching before and after every workout, and during workouts. And not to beat a dead horse, but look for issues up and down the posterior chain, not just where it hurts. Glutes in particular.
  3. Are you saying you have lower back pain, and you're tying it to tight hamstrings? Or you actually have pain in your hamstrings? Stretching is fine but be careful not to underestimate abdominal strength as a root cause. Your lower back will work overtime if your abs lack the strength to support your posture.
  4. CBX 119 hybrid. I really don't need to hit it that often, but I can't remember the last time I missed with it.
  5. Your back feeling better is surprising; I hope I get that benefit! I don't have back pain per se, but after deadlifts, rows, and squats during the week I get pretty stiff...very hard to limber up for a weekend round. Does there seem to be a common trend as to when most people do the protocols? I lift aggressively MWF, cardio on T & TH. The MWF workouts have plenty of ab work, mostly planks and ab wheels. So, last week (week 1 for me) I did the protocol around 8 pm when I felt reasonably fresh. My workouts are o'dark-30, I don't know that I want to get up even earlier to do this before.
  6. That’s inspiring stuff. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. 42-39; had a rough day with the wedges at Iron Horse Golf Club in Ashland, Nebraska. Bladed a couple and even broke out the dreaded s-word on another. I think when I get a wedge in hand I’m getting lazy and making an arm swing instead of a full turn. It would explain the hosel rocket and skulls. The sh1t of it (and I know many of you feel my pain) is I won’t get to a course or range until Tuesday, which gives me over 2 days to stew on it. In the interim, the same four GOLFTEC drills I do over and over and over and over... Plus, week 2 of SuperSpeed Level 1 begins Monday! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Better numbers, or a feel thing? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. Same thing here, all the balls I find go to my boy’s water ball bucket. Then when I take them (they’re 6 & 4), they insist on me teeing up 4 or 5 of them at each water hazard and letting them have at it. Gotta keep it fun... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. I suppose I failed to mention towel and a Milwaukee marker too. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Not sure how many members here check out the podcasts, hopefully most, but I highly recommend the most recent one entitled "Has Callaway Golf Lost Their Mojo?" The Callaway discussion was interesting on its own, but for me the real jewel of the discussion is found in the overview of the shaft survey results and the "made for" shaft issue. If you're unfamiliar, here's a link to a 2017 article MGS released (by Chris Nickel) that I hope opened a lot of eyes...it certainly did for me. https://mygolfspy.com/made-for-shafts-a-closer-look/ There are a few outstanding questions the discussion leaves me with. 1) Outside of the general emotional reaction to a company attempting to dupe the consumer, should I care from a performance perspective? I get that a "made for" performs differently than the family of shafts it's painted to look like (see T800 vs T1100 in my Epic), but does different necessarily mean inferior? 2) Is every OEM doing this right now, or are there currently off-the-rack offerings that are giving us the real deal? Thoughts/insights anyone?
  12. Holy sh!t bro. I thought my bag was stuffed... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. Following. This is great stuff. Looking forward to that Planemate review, although after having picked up Super Speed the wife would go apesh!t if I bought another training aid. Keep at it! Hard work pays off.
  14. This is my basement putting green (surrounded by my kids Hot Wheels stuff). I can't recall the company that makes it; set me back about $1K after a military discount. I can look it up and pass on the info to anyone who wants it. From corner to corner it's a little over a 10 ft putt. My daily practice involves working on face control and start line. I set a goal of 40 3 footers in a row, and if I get to 33 (for example) and miss, I have to start over. Once I finish that I'll go to the 10 ft putt, set balls at varying distances, and jump around to vary the distance/speed. After that I'll do a lot of Stockton-style left hand only putts working on keeping the putter low to the ground all the way through the stroke. I sometimes struggle with speed based on contact with the ball at inconsistent heights on the face and the Stockton drill is an attempt to address that. Like everyone else on here, speed becomes an issue, in part I think because the speed of the practice green is so ingrained into me. I spend a LOT of time pre-round on the practice green trying to adapt to that particular course/green.
