  1. Well I took the plunge. Planemate came in today. Definitely need to watch the set up video a little closer before going after day 1 again. Holy ghost hands though that feeling is crazy. Not sure how folks say they do it prior to a round as a warmup I felt silly trying to swing. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  2. Did not think I had a chance of every completing this because I am not much of a birdie person. However cranked out 2 birdies in one 9 last week. I am up to 7 holes completed so big goal of getting to 9 by the end of the season! Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  3. Big thanks to@Johnsmalls for putting this all together! Every year it's so much fun and every year I feel like I'm happy when its over hahaha Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  4. I'm seeing a very similar thing when it comes to conditions. I can bump and run it if it's hard and dry. After Laura came through though and soaked everything (including me) it was getting up and slamming into the green. I made a ball mark with a 30 yd chip and it just sat which never happens.

  5. Finally was able to get another round in. Was using Prov1x on the front in order to properly review the Zipcore. On the back though I busted out the trusty ol Titelist Velocity. Almost got myself back in to the long drive competition on my very first hole. Unfortunately had some kicks left and ended up in the rough. Played a very solid round and was a few shots away from a personal record round. Who says that the Velocity isnt a proper gamer haha. Played at Clustered Spires, shot a 38, played from the Black tees, current handicap is 8.8. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  6. I agree with the muted feeling on chips. The only shot I can feel the difference on is when I hit it more out of the heel. A little thin or a little fat or pured all feel very similar out of the middle of the club. Still having issues controlling the trajectory, though I've noticed now that the distance dispersion is not really affected when I hit it lower or higher then I want.

  7. Haha we definitely did! It's completely true though.@leftyhawk the only other advise I can give is bring waterproof shoes because the spring course always seems to be wet. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. 6'2 and use a 35" honestly would like to go a little longer. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  9. Depends from year to year. I've played in February when its 70 and we have also had blizzards in March. Totally crap shoot from year to year what early spring weather we will see. How cold is too cold to play? Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  10. Alright so I am kinda at a loss after today's round. Both the Zip and my Honma were like neck and neck in terms of performance on 3/4 and full shots. Literally landed and sat right next to each other on all 4 shots I used them. The only difference comes on the chips. I had 2 different holes I used the 54s to chip on. Both occassions the balls ended almost identical length from the hole. Except the Honma was short and the Zip was long. It was crazy to watch and I actually laughed the second time it happened. For me personally my preference would be the Zip ending long just because you at least give yourself an opportunity to hole out. More testing to come but definitely puzzled by today's results.

  11. All of my stock shots with the Zip seem to go the same distance as my Honma. The feel is better on full shots with the Zip for sure. Seems to be very forgiving with any poor shots being user error. Going out to play 18 tomorrow, anytime I'm in my 54 stock distances the plan is to drop 2 new ProV1Xs and see the comparison.

  12. I'm currently testing the Zipcore and my suggestion for you would be to get it fitted if you choose that club. Stock shaft feels very whippy which for many players on a wedge can be a big put off. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. Definitely seems slightly bulkier that is something I noticed today. Spent some more time hitting shots today and have found that I can control distances nicely with it. However am struggling with trajectory, less then full shots are low and full shots are very high. Also am not really seeing the "zip". They arent rolling out worse then a few old wedges I brought out to compare but for a wedge that I thought was going to check up hasn't done much. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. Well done that is awesome! Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  15. Ok so I got paired with some speed golfers today so did not get to properly test the wedge as I had planned and wanted to just leave it in the bag instead. However something funny happened I accidentally grabbed it for a 92 yard shot on 18. I immediately felt it was a different club then my Honma 54. Boy did that thing launch high! Was a little deep with it but was overall a great shot in my mind. I am very excited to really dig in this week when I get back from vacation. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  16. As someone who has tried to be a walking scorer at a PGA event it's not as simple as 10 min of instruction. At least not in the past 3 years I have tried. They want you to have previous experience at some other levels event. Granted that doesn't make you an expert but I also have been told the walking scorers responsibility is for the stats and live scoring on tv it has nothing to do with actual rounds score. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  17. Very interesting so basically a 2% swing from 3 putts to 1 putts has led to a 2.95 strokes gained difference. That's massive! Granted going from 3 putts to 1 putt is pretty impressive even if it's only 2% change. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  18. it's funny you ask about the grind because that is a big thing I noticed when I first got the club. How it almost seems to have 2 angles on the bottom, in the picture it shows more via the light glare but it is very pronounced. Really hope it doesnt lead to larger divots like@shankster said because if so the greens keepers are going to hate me I already take big divots. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  19. Sometimes if you ask the universe answers back! Par 3 closest to the pin entry! Came out to 9 feet (heel-toe steps)! If only I wasnt using the spinless Titleist Velocity maybe could have had my first 1! Ended up being our last hole of the day also because after hitting our drives on the next hole BOOM [emoji939][emoji939][emoji939]! Nasty slow moving T-storm rolled through. Is there a record for the shortest HR round? Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  20. Do you have stats for your putting prior to using the Putt Out? I would love to know the change is % of your 1, 2 and 3 putts. Also would love to know if you're holing longer putts more often. Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  21. In the words of jittery Jerge, "Letttsss ggoooo"! My plan is to take it straight to the course this week and I am going to drop an extra ball everytime I need to hit my 54. My current 54 is a brand new Honma TW-W World, which has maybe 200 shots on it mostly off of a mat so very fresh grooves. Itll be a pretty straight up comparison. Anything in particular the good folks out there want to see during this testing? Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  22. Thanks for the heads up Old Ben! Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  23. ok time to have a little HRC fun today! Which XL flies the farthest! Now for a poll, do I use driver, 3 wood or I almost dont dare to say this 2 iron? I dont tee off till the afternoon so get your votes in! Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  24. I want to get in on the closest to pin action but the course I play the par 3s are brutal for trying to get a closest to pin! 158, 202, 204, 176. If only I could get a 130 hahaha Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  25. Great group of testers! Good luck fellas! Sent from my SM-G950U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
