  1. It really is. I could easily find a fault or two with other urethane balls that I’ve put it up against. It feels good to not have to compromise on a ball. I don’t have $45-50 to spend per dozen so this really is a big winner for me and my family.
  2. Funny you post this. Last night I was out at a pub celebrating with a friend who was promoted at work and one of the TV’s was showing that exact broadcast. On one of the back nine holes, Sutton hit it 295 with 150 in...his driver of choice? A Taylor Made Firesole with a burner shaft. Ball of choice? Top Flite Strata. None of the guys at the table are golfers so me saying how did that happen fell on deaf ears.
  3. Congrats fellas. Not going to lie, this one is intriguing. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. I keep going back and forth with wanting to build a set of irons as a fun project. Then I found these today...
  5. That’s correct and@thin2win explained it perfectly. I’m a visual learner so I like photos to show the “why” and the “how”
  6. Bouncing back is code for “I don’t want to do these because they may snap.” I trusted my ability to repair and tweek clubs but I never took on a set of cast clubs for a loft or lie adjustment. One snap or crack and I would be the proud owner of a set of those clubs. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Wedge shaft help

    I am in your camp with that setup. I prefer a heavier club and having the opportunity to play around with wedge specific vs. iron shafts has been fun. I was amused by a post on this board recently where someone mentioned players have been known to use 8 iron taper tip shafts in their wedges.

    Wedge shaft help

    I’ll chime in because I did both last season. Historically, I would play the same DG S300 shaft in my wedges as my irons...I have a shop in my home where I do my own club repair and have the ability to tinker. Last season I started playing Hi-Rev shafts in my 52 and 60. To be honest, I did not notice a significant change. Throughout the season there wasn’t a single aspect of these shafts’ performance that made me believe I was depriving myself of trajectory, spin or feel when comparing to my iron shafts.
  9. Social media is the toilet of the internet.
  10. I swear, CBS pays Nantz by the word.
  11. Max Homa and Scott Brown...love seeing these guys at the top of the leaderboard.
  12. Take a broom and hold it straight out so it’s parallel to the ground. Grip it at the end - that weight would resemble a heavier swing weight. Now choke up a foot - that weight would represent a cut down club and thus, a lighter swing weight. The weight would feel lower if you choked up but the gross weight of the club would remain unchanged. Removing length would both reduce the gross weight as well as lighten the swing weight.
  13. A significant motivating force behind my weight loss has been stress at work. Today I am on duty and it all boiled over; I laid it out for my wife who helped me get to a better place. During that conversation, I told her that working out and running has been my way to help me cope with what’s happened. While she agreed, she sent me these words... “You can go to the gym, drink your water and eat well, but if you don’t take care of your head and your heart, you’ll remain unhealthy.” Just another reason why I adore this woman. So...for those of you on a similar journey, I hope these words speak to you. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Right now, these are the only ones taking up rent. Super consistent, durable and priced very well.
  15. I’d like to enter. 34.5” 2 ball with super stroke 1.0 grip. Thank you.
