  1. Thanks for the help everyone! I'll put your advice to good use and hopefully not make a fool of myself. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. Thanks everyone. All of this has definitely been a big help. I've definitely learned enough to not embarrass myself the first day. Hopefully... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. First time ever looping. I've played a lot of golf, but grew up in a pretty small part of the world and never had the opportunity to caddie until now. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. Hey everyone, I'm looking for help from anybody who can offer it. I got a job as a caddie this summer so I'm looking for advice and anything that can help me improve. If you've ever had a caddie before what are some of the things they did that you liked and what are some that you hated? If you've caddied before are there any tips of the trade you'd be willing to pass on? Thanks in advance, I really appreciate it.
  5. Depends on what I'm doing. If I'm playing a competitive round then it's a new or newish ball. If I'm just out practicing or messing around with friends it's a retired ball from the first bunch. I typically don't play new balls on courses I've never played before either. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. Hey, everyone. I'm going to be spending a couple days in Flagstaff and I'm looking for a course to play while I'm there. Any recommendations? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. I very rarely hit three wood off the tee. I never felt confident with it. This club could change that though. I ended up with 16.5 loft. I'm really enjoying a four wood also. Very playable so far. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Okay y'all, here's my update on my tour edge. I finally got a chance to get it on a range and put in some work. So far I'm extremely impressed. Face feels hot and I love the feel, sound, and look. Club launches really well. I'd never heard of a Kuro Kage blue before this club, but I'm really liking the shaft. Stable but not boardy to my feel. All in all the club responds well when I put a good move in and not awful when I miss. It'll stay in the bag for now until it makes me mad!

  9. For me it came down to a Cobra f7 or baffler or a couple tour edge models and the tour edge won out simply for price. I really don't have a chance to test clubs near me. Hate where I live for that reason. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Looks nice! How'd it end up playing? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I'm sure he is! $139 new sounds like a steal. I read a lot of good about the E9 during my research and probably would have ended up with one if I didn't find this E8. What shaft is in it?
  12. Typically I've felt I'm a mid to low flight, but over the past few weeks I feel that's moved to a mid to high flight with some changes I've made to my swing and equipment. Right now I'm really liking it, but I haven't had a chance to put it through the paces yet and it's very early. Hopefully I'll be able to get on the range sometime in the next couple days and really test it. When I do I'll report back.
  13. I'd have to say Srixon/Cleveland or Tour Edge. I just picked up a E8 fairway tonight's as the first time out and I'm impressed so far. It was mentioned earlier, but if I had to play all one brand I could easily do that with Srixon/Cleveland. I also think Cobra is up there, just haven't played a lot of their stuff so I can't say for sure. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Got the E8 out on the course for the first time tonight and early on I'm impressed. Need a few more swings before I know for sure. Thanks everyone for all the help! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. I'll let you know once it gets here, hopefully Tuesday. I've read a lot of good so I'm hoping it works out. I love tinkering too much to ever give it up! It was on the short list. Got a crazy deal on the e8 though so I pulled the trigger. I'll update once it shows up so stay tuned. Never hit a 915, but I sold a 910 for the e8 I'm getting. I really wanted to find one. Just a little more than I'd like to spend right now. I looked for the differences for a long time and couldn't find anything with a good comparison. I got mine from global golf and they had a 20% discount on used clubs. I'll give that a shot next time I'm out. Hopefully it'll help me too. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. Just updating my search. After searching forever I found something I think I'm going to like. Picked up a TEE e8 16.5 with a kuro kage blue shaft from global golf for 70 bucks. Should be here next week sometime. When I get a chance to hit it I'll post back. Really wanted to find an f7 for a steal but little too spend right now. Maybe next year when the price drops.

  17. No, no! It's a must for any true golf fan! Give it a shot once. The course I play has $2 green fees for a round and $35 for a family membership. My old man used to have a 3 wheel Harley Davidson cart and I put some miles on that course and cart when I was young. You after you reach the green and everybody is on a spot is typically picked in the middle of all the putts. Then a small tined rake is used to work the sand a little then it is drug smooth with the opposite side of the rake. Our rakes are made of what I'm guessing is 16 inch long 2.5 inch diameter pipe with small bolts welded to it. Not very much break in putts usually and speed is key. The hardest part of playing is to hit the green because they're tiny. 15-20 foot diameters aren't uncommon and some are even smaller. Around here the sand is usually mixed with old engine oil from tractors that's been donated by local farmers. Most courses are far from green but give it a shot! I'd say it was a bad course. When my local course is in good shape if you hit the green with anything from 3 wood to a 60 the ball isn't moving more than a foot from impact. They're a dying breed that's for use. Go play if you ever have a chance. If you go through make a stop and play. It's a memorable experience. They are dying off quick. Kind of hard to keep up when all golf is dying it seems.

  18. Have you played? How'd you like it?
  19. Oh no. This is what I mean by sand greens.
  20. I'm curious about how many people have ever played on sand greens. I grew up playing sand greens on a little nine-hole par 32 course. I didn't know grass greens existed until I was seven or eight and saw some on TV. I love sand and typically play in a couple of tournaments every summer that my local course hosts. Gets me back to my roots, if you will. Completely different experience from grass, but something everybody who is into golf should be apart of at some point in my opinion. If you've played, chime in and talk about the experience!
  21. I play a good majority of my rounds as a single since I usually go out fairly late in the day. I really enjoy it since I have a chance to work on things I'm struggling with. I'll usually play a couple balls, my favorite game right now is a 2 ball scramble but play the worst ball. Really helps me focus on each shot. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. In my mind a good ball with tight tolerances is the most important part of the testing you guys do. Any variations between balls, even the same ball, could skew results. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  23. 37 on the front 50 on the back. The worst part? It was in a high school tournament that was on a nine hole course. That day was an absolute disaster. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
