  1. I would really appreciate any comments about high heat drivers.
  2. The recovery shades sound perfect. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  3. I use a Wilson Sandy Andy. I’ve had this club for quite a while. It’s actually the third one I’ve owned and used. This is a 64 degree loft (stamped on the sole) with 4 degree bounce (also stamped on the sole). The club has a curved leading edge that really fits my eye. This is a club designed for sand, probably green side more so than anything else. If I really try and catch the ball pure from a fairway lie, I can get 60 yards tops, which is fine by me. I love hitting this club in green side bunkers because I know what to expect. I practice in my basement during the winter hitting little lofted chips at a target. This has resulted in me being able to pop a short sided shot over a bunker to a cup 6 feet on the green with no fear. It’s a result of the Sandy Andy and practice. Take dead aim.

  4. Has anyone in the MGS community purchased or used a Knuth Golf High heat driver? I have read about them but have not seen many comments. I understand from their advertising the driver generated considerable excitement at golf shows (not sure which show). Take dead aim. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  5. Interesting thread. I wear glasses, progressives in very light frames that have no frames around the lens. These lenses also darken in sunlight (UV). I really like these as I always have some darkening of the lens, thus protecting my eyes from damaging sunlight. At first I really disliked wearing glasses in general on the course, but I have found that the glasses serve an unexpected service. If during my swing (back or down) the ball appears to be out of the boundary of the lens, I know I have moved my head significantly enough to effect my shot. By keeping the ball “inside the lens” I know I have kept the center axis of my swing intact. Just don't tell the USGA or they will rule glasses as illegal to use. Take dead aim.

  10. I am hoping to get as much help here as possible. What are the differences between cast and forged blades? Construction techniques as well as playing differences. I've read for years that this blade or that bleed was forged. And I've also read about cast blades. I've never really read anything that gave me an idea of the differences, or why one would be recommended for a player. Take dead aim. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  11. My season in Michigan is underway. In the last portion of last season I experimented with using a putter instead of a lofted club when I am close to a green. Normally being 5, 10, or even 15 feet from the edge of a green would result in pulling a lofted club. Unless I have to get over a green side bunker, I am seriously considering using a putter. This experiment resulted in very interesting results. The course I play most of the time, does not shave the area directly surrounding a green, so conditions vary from hole to hole. The interesting thing is, I seem to have developed a touch for putting through fairway type grass, onto the green and crazy close to the hole a majority of the time. I am wondering if any of the MGS community has experimented similarly, and what you observations or results may have been. Last week I ended a round with a hole high approach shot that was 10 yards off the green. I chose to try the putter and was pleased to see my shot come within 3 feet of the cup. Color me converted.

  13. I read this with some interest. http://www.pga.com/news/golf-buzz/what-even-par-worth-pga-tour-in-2016-17-regular-season I wonder if Joe or Tom were to have competed in majors how they would have done. Fun to speculate. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
