  1. I know I'm a bit late to the party but... as an answer to this - I guess it depends if you are golfing with Costco execs and looking for their business...
  2. 4. Goal for 2018 = Break 80. Shot 80 a couple of days ago, so... I really believe that this is the year. Just got done with my application and... you know what, I don't want to enter. I am fortunate enough to be able to afford a new set of clubs. Let it go to someone that really needs the set. MGS, you guys rock. Cheers.
  3. Well, I'm assuming applying this late leaves me with a pretty slim chance of getting picked, but here goes: - Matthew / (Northern) California - 10 handicap - Kirkland Signature / Pro V1 (Pro V1x prior to 2017) - I have a tendency to have a higher spin off of my woods than I would prefer, so most of my fitting has geared to lower my spin. Hope that helps.
  4. 1. 39 2. Not sure what my ball speed is 3. Nike RZN Black/Platinum
  5. 1. Swinging out of your shoes? Take them off! Seriously, though, this was something that Sam Snead recommended, and it helped me with stability, tempo, and transition. 2. Another possibility; you're swinging fine. This happened to me. I'd feel like everything was coming together when I would really go after the ball, but I'd sky it, I'd have a massive slice, etc. I had to slow down to get everything to match up correctly. Then I went and got fitted. I had a stiff flex stock shaft, but my swing speed was about 115 when I was trying to moderate my tempo. After the fitters got done laughing (jk, but we did have a lot of fun), they put in with a much stiffer, heavier shaft. My drives straightened out almost immediately, and the feel is wonderful. If you have a trackman or gc2 at one of the ranges/courses that you frequent, see if your equipment matches your swing. (Ugh... just realized all my posts sound the same... go get fitted, go get fitted... Seems to be my stupid answer to everything ) Anyway, best of luck. Definitely give a shoe-less swing a try and see how it feels. BTW, don't use driver until you feel like you've adjusted your swing (small drop in your height). Coming in fat with a driver can hurt you and your club. Cheers!
  6. Completely agree here. Go through the vendor you purchased from, if you have that option. I had a similar event with a cracked shaft. The vendor was able to get it squared away in the same week.
  7. Echoing a bit with the others above, until the end. I'll mark it with *** If you love the M2, and are going to spend the money to get a shiny new shaft, get a fitting. I cannot stress that enough. I would certainly recommend getting it all done at the fitters. You don't have to buy it all there, but even if it cost $200 more, the confidence and (just as important) the reassurance that you have the right club and shaft is worth it. I say this out of experience. I've spent probably $200 and countless hours just trying and returning clubs over the last two years, when I should have just bit the bullet and went in for a fitting. Now that I have, my driver is the straightest club in my bag. Saving up for an iron/wedge/putter fitting next. *** All that said... if you are looking at saving a bit of dough, you'll probably want to get more statistics. Most courses have access to a Trackman. You'll want to get as much data as possible (your attack angle, in to out, ball trajectory, stats on your speed [you state you are ≈ 100 mph, is that out of 10 swings? 100?]). Once you have all of that juicy data, you could probably post it and ask the same question on reputable sites such as this one as well as reddit and (if you want to get beat up a bit), post it on golfwrx . You could probably give all that data to a fitter, and without the cost of a fitting, they could point you in the direction of the right shaft for your M2. They probably even have used shafts. Cheers. Also, where do you live? I'll bet we can find you an excellent place to get advice, trackman, etc. on these boards.
  8. Location: Danville, CA Current Putter: Odyssey White Hot RX #1 What needs work: Honestly, I have yet to find a putter that I can afford that consistently feels great off the face. The last putter that I tried that felt incredible was a Scotty Cameron... I just can't afford it.
  9. 1. Matthew / California 2. 13 3. Cobra LTD with Fujikura Pro 71 XLR8 X-Stiff flex 4. ≈ 115 mph @ 285 Carry 5. Henrik Stenson For my favorite staffer... Love Furyk, but it was between Stenson and Mickelson... About as close as their duel at Royal Troon. I used to hit Callaway exclusively, but I found a great deal on a used Cobra head. Then I snapped the shaft which led me to go get fitted . If you live in the Bay Area, Kepler's Golf is amazing. They treated me really well, handed me a fair price on the shaft, and didn't try to up-sell beyond what I needed ("You came in for a driver shaft fitting, so why would I try and sell you anything else?"). I know that isn't what this forum is for, but I wish someone had told me about a place like Kepler's years ago... I'm going to search the forums for golf fitter recommendations after I post this, so I can get my hands on that GBB (sub-zero, please! )
  10. Biggest issue that I've had with the Arccos system is that it chews through my battery. Other than that, I've had decent sensor behavior. No strikes missed. If I bring a few clubs out of the bag, it will occasionally pick up a "hit" where there was none. My biggest gripe is the inability to share full rounds with anyone. It seems like Game Golf kind of nailed that aspect. In general, I'm really happy with Arccos - especially now that I bring a battery pack with me.
  11. Matthew California 13 Handicap Callaway Diablo Forged Biggest strength in my Iron play is distance, my biggest weakness is iron face consistency at impact (typically hit left)
