  1. I first got fitted in 1977 at a pro shop at the course i played multiple times a week. I bought my first set of Pings, eye 2s, and have always had at least one set of pings to play since then. I learned then about green dot, upright lie and clubs longer than standard. 6'4" swinging 1970's standard shafts was less fun than fitted pings. Editing to add Ive been fitted at least a dozen times since then. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  2. USAmtour picked up from the Golf Channel Am tour. I played GC the last five years. Played one USAm tour tournament a few weeks ago. Same people but things are not quite the same. Golf week am tour seems popular around here (houston) ans many i played with on GC have moved to golf week. As a senior, i want to play against other seniors not against 25 year olds.

  3. I have two pair now and wore the previous pair out. They are all i wear for the last 3-4 years. Very comfortable. Great for walking which i do a lot. But for me, most importantly, they fit. Only a few footjoys will fit me and few other brands in any style fit correctly. Im a 13 wide and thats the issue in most cases. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  4. I prefer a line. The line is what i line up to my mark on the green or the hole as the case may be. Dots and no marks lend to a non-square face at impact. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  5. I bought a caddytek 4 wheel version about 4 years ago. No issues. Very easy to push, very stable, good storage and folds up easily to fit in the truck. I bought red wheeled version but now catch crap each round because the wheels are now pink. I walk every round until the temp is 100. Wife mase me pro.ise to ride when its hotter than that Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  6. Swing u app, pay the upgrade. Allows you to track all clubs each shot, based on gps. Is on your phone, excellent scoring app and tracks all stats except putting distance. Choose club at shot location. Hit track botton and club your using. Hit shot and walk to ball. Hit end shot. Saves distance for that shot and club. Ive used it for several years. Quality, helpful app with gps course overlay. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  7. Ive currently got 30 putters, down after selling several so id say im trial and error though i know what i like but i just buy putters. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. Personally, i love colored balls. Ive played orange and yellow, red, and even pink Volviks (which i hated how they felt and put in my practice bucket), red/white, yellow/white and green/white callys. I find them easier to find (except green/white) and i dont mind if others play them. However, im currently playing white Srixons that were given as tournament entry and im really enjoying them. For me, they are as long as anything else, but are really good around the greens for me. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  9. Cobra Bio Cell or F7, F8. Just sold a bio cell for 100ishon ebay. Had them, liked them, long. Ping G or G30 are great values. I use the G400 now but played the G and no noticeable distance fain, a bit more forgiveness. Sold the G for about 100 also. Epic Flash is super but still expensive. Much better than Epic, more distance and much more forgiving. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    5800 - 6300 because thats my tournament senior playing distance. If im yhe only senior in the group, ill usually move back to the whites because thats what most people think they should play. However, almost all should be playing the gold senior tees because they are poor golfers. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  11. Jeff, Houston TX 460 98 driver swing speed Thanks Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. Putter if its cut close enough. Thicker fringe grass and id probably use a 9 iron Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. Ease of play. I walk mostly and my favorites will have short walks between holes rather than random 500 yard traipses. Condition, mostly of greens and the ability to hit a shot at the stick with some hope of it syaying on the green. Hole playability. I.e. holes require "normal" shots, not superhuman (pro) level shots to score. For example, i would not like a course which required an iron to the dogleg but a 3 wood then into the green. One or two holes are fine, but many are not. Courses which reward good shots, not penalize them. Price is a factor for daily play. Tournament play is always more than i'd pay for daily play Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. Breathe deeply. Hit something you are certain of off the first tee. I'd recommend 7 iron or 6 iron as most people feel confident with one of those. A good first shot helps ease the first tee jitters. My first two seasons (16 tournaments or so), I was hands shaking, hyperventilating nervous. This resulted in poor tee shots of the first three tees normally. By 4 I'd calm down, but it was too late by then. As I've played more, theresno more jitters. What I've learned from five years of tourney play is minimize mistakes and compounded mistakes. Don't try the miracle shot to make up for a poor tee shot. Have a short memory. Forget the bad shot/hole and move on. Sometimes bogey is ok. Learn to miss to your strength. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  15. Second jlukes comment. For me it was well worth the $10. It helped define my needs and helped me focus on certain shafts. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
