  1. Search for Bill Weller on Twitter Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. People are all that matter, but I would recommend considering if this trip might “recalibrate” you and deliver you back to your family better than when you left. Find the “win-win”. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. I cannot recommend this track enough.... iirc, they’re equipped to handle overnight stays now. Last time I played it the only thing I wanted to accomplish was cutting the corner on 18. It was all I accomplished, as it turned out. Best kept secret in Texas IMHO. Worth the drive fellas. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. Tested this product for the first time yesterday. I think the following is important: it was between 39-42*, it was either a pitter patter rain or mist the entire time, and the wind was gusting. I cant count the amount of times that the device was stuck on a screen that was not working. I had it clipped to my pocket, and by the 15’th hole, it had toggled between scorecard, resume round, had me on the wrong hole, was displaying the wrong number- I put it away. I had my bushnell with me as well, and given the importance of having a number to the pin, e.g., I know that it’s better than nothing to have front and middle numbers that the Skycaddie accurately gave when it was cooperating, but when a green is 70 yards deep, or 60 yards wide, I need the number to the pin, so I relied on my Bushnell. My initial impression is that the user interface requires too much effort in soggy conditions, and there isn’t a calibration on the device. In other words, the device acted as though I was touching it all the time and I would have to stop what I was doing, back out of the current displayed information and, I feel like in this day and age of touchscreen devices, a level of calibration to touch is needed for this product to work. In my initial test, I was very frustrated. Im going to assume some level of responsibility for the debacle, and go back at it again and again. It’s important to note that I was caddying a course I’ve looped+played > 100 times in the last four months. I’d like to think that the misty conditions were what really made this difficult, but I had no problems checking my email while I was walking to the turn. Round two coming up Manana~
  5. I received mine yesterday. I’m going to be a bit redundant, but it is a critical point. I caddie/coach/play and fit. My exposure to technology in Golf has brought me to a cynical beginning perspective. There was a time when I thought Trackman was the greatest thing since Titleist introduced the Professional. Nowadays I’m much more “it’s going to have to make the game better/faster on a $1=$1 basis”. In other words, I would spend my hard earned money with Arccos, I am impressed with Mizuno’s shaft optimizer, and I would invest in the company that is going to bring non-conforming equipment to the general golfer I meet that swings it 80 mph. I’m testing this against the whole arsenal. Bushnell, the best app’s on my iPhone, and Strackaline pin sheets in addition to yardages that are on sprinkler heads. It’s going to have to do a whole lot for me to say “go spend $300 and buy a yearly membership”.
  6. Looper, Dallas Tx I use a Bushnell V4, but when a player needs a very specific number, e.g., when does the fairway end on #13 at Trinity Forest, I have to use my distance map app on my iPhone. As a Caddie, I love and hate it. (I can’t post my name bc of an NDA) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. I’ve looped for enough PXG to throw in my $0.02..., I’m impressed, and that is not easily done, I’m on the fence about at what point they are worth the price, but if price isn’t a consideration I would highly recommend getting to a green grass demo day. Especially if you’re in the demographic of “not willing to concede I can’t get a little bit faster just yet...” Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. If I hit my 180 more than once on the nose I want to put in ear plugs. The 190 sounded better, the 410 sounded great, the TS sounded like butter.... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. Jess Texas Mizuno ST-180 Mitsubishi Tensei Blue 72g stiff I was fitted through a Mizuno certified club fitter, hit it on the launch monitor and watched it fly outside After watching seven different guys (ages 24-62, swing speeds of 86-110mph) hit the new Titleist TS2 and TS3, I am positive there's a better fit for me but I also want to point out that I am extremely happy with my Mizuno, I never thought I'd see ball speeds of 160mph again, that being said, it's definitely what I call a “dialed in stick”, i.e., I hit my Epic much more consistent but the best swing I make with my mizzy don't compare to the Epic. When I'm dialed in, it's Blue Heaven. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Mizuno is the only company I will order custom through. Ping is a joke. As in, if I described giving measurements to the last sales rep or club rep that I had to talk to at Ping many of us would laugh our ass off Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. When I was 10, in 1992, it was the introduction of the Ping Eye 2 bd 1 iron that had come with the set when my father bought them for me in 1990 but had not put the one or two iron in the bag. That 1i was my go-to. Fairway finder, thin-it-to-win-it, etc. In 2004, it was the 904f 21* In 2011, the 14* heavenwood. In 2018, it was the Epic 3w. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. It's a lifestyle, not a job. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. Being a game of opposites, the quiet professional at your local muni that seems to always be there and never gives unsolicited advice is probably what OP would like. The best Teaching Professional I know doesn't advertise himself beyond the absolute minimum and is all about let's remember this is a game let's have fun. Also is an absolute cut throat for 3hrs 58mins every Monday, somewhere else Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
