  1. Find a used Adams tight lie 3 wood (metal). There is a reason that club started, and maintains a following. It works like magic. I will never give my 3 and 5 tight lie clubs up. Sure you can spend a lot of money on fairway woods and be disappointed, I have seen these gems sold out of bargain barrels for $5 ! Try these, you’ll like them.
  2. When that sort of thing happens to me, (distance control remains fine but I’m missing right or left) , it’s not what I’m looking at or not looking at, it’s grip pressure. I’m right handed, if my right hand is gripping the putter harder than the left, my putts will tend to go right. If my left hand is gripping harder, putts will tend to go left. To check how hand pressure effects you, stand over a putt, intentionally grip one hand harder than the other and lift your putter slightly. The face will open or close depending on which hand is gripping more firmly. Correcting this is simple, equalize the grip pressure on each hand with the putter just barely off the ground at setup. You will know when you are balanced when the putter face is square to the target, not open or closed. Last thing, the grip should be light but firm. A light grip with equalized pressure will result in a more steady stroke. Your eyes might not be bad. Try this a few times, it takes practice but produces good results. Equilibrating grip pressure is part of my pre shot routine, it takes 3 or 4 seconds.
  3. I would really appreciate any comments about high heat drivers.

  5. 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.

  6. 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
  7. 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.

  12. 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
  13. 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.
