  1. I'm not 100% sure, but I think you are correct.
  2. According to a Mark Crossfield video I saw, the counterbalance weight is 30 grams.
  3. Sorry, I did not see this post until I was updating this thread. To answer your question, the 4 of us were given the choice of the HF1 or HF2 - all of us opted for the HF2 as we were not sure we could handle the appearance of the HF1 at address. Here is a link to that thread....
  4. I thought I would post a little update on the woods from this test. I have put the driver in timeout until a couple things happen: 1) do a proper fitting and see what happens with a different shaft and 2) I need a lesson for the big sticks - the only thing consistent with woods in my hands is inconsistency. Right now, my old Callaway Razr Fit 3W is being used in place of this driver and I am using the JGR 3W where I would normally use a 3W - I have found the JGR to be more accurate than the Callaway, but not as long. Here are some ShotScope stats now that I have been using the Callaway for a couple rounds (the yellow 3W is the Callaway): This week in our league I was hitting the Callaway pretty well off the tee and had 2 drives that were 230-240 range with the course still being relatively soft. I do not believe there is anything inherently wrong with the clubs, I just firmly believe that shaft choices were completely wrong for me. The clubs are designed to launch high, which is something I generally do not need, so I feel I need a shaft that somewhat counteracts that to reduce height and spin. The issue I am running into is if I pay for a fitting and would be looking at buying an aftermarket shaft and getting it installed, why not go all the way and find the best head for me, too? As for the hybrids, I find them stupid easy to hit. I'm sure there could be some optimization on the shaft side, but at the moment, I see no need. Comment on ShotScope - I love the fact that they send you extra tags as it makes these kinds of tests really, really easy. Put club in bag, swing club. That's it. I currently have the extra tags in my old Driver, 3W, 3H, and Mizuno GW.
  5. That looks awesome and I would love to do it, but don't have an official GHIN - just my unofficial logging in The Grint. I would aim for Signature of Solon if I had the chance.
  6. Don't you just love it when the part of the game you struggle with changes weekly? Yesterday I got off the tee pretty well - I only sprayed one ball OB, the rest were all playable, which is great, but I started pulling my irons badly yesterday, like 20-30 yards pulled with dead straight ball flight. Chipping was pretty sketchy and it was the worst putting day so far this season. The greens were quite a bit faster last night and I was playing too much break and/or pounding the ball through the break. I ended up with three 3-putts as a result. Pace of play was brutal last night, too. We were badgering the first group pretty badly and they were oblivious - they tried to claim they were waiting the whole time but we saw them lose touch with the group ahead of them on the 4th hole. Still, it was fun time.
  7. She still may not believe you!
  8. I almost convinced a friend to buy a car last night, for what it's worth. @Mr_Theoo - do it, man!
  9. I would call what he does a "saunter", but I'm with you.
  10. I try to be conscious of where I am standing, but sometimes I get so wrapped up in what I am trying to accomplish that I lose track. I am more than ok with people correcting me in those moments as it's never intentional. I used to play in a league with a guy that was a Vietnam vet and he really, really didn't like when people stood directly behind him within about 30 feet - it kind of freaked him out when he could sense your presence but not see you.
  11. When I had my putter fitting in preparation for the Stroke Lab testing, the guy asked me if I had ever tried the claw grip to help with quieting my hands. I used it for about a year and had good results starting the ball on line, but my distance control sucked (there are other reasons for that too, but you'll have to wait for the thread). He suggested trying it just in practice to get the feel of a less wristy/quieter hands stroke.
  12. I was sent a dozen Tour B RX's with the Bridgestone test last fall based on Bridgestone's online fitting tool and generally liked the ball. I also recently found an RXS that was in great shape and played it for quite a few holes before dunking it in a pond and think I prefer the RXS over the RX. Compared to other balls, I prefer the OnCore Elixer or Maxfli Tour X over them, especially around the green, but overall the RX/RXS are decent balls for me.
  13. I played around with an armlock putter a couple months ago and, like you, it felt very unnatural to me. Bad enough that I wasn't sure I was doing it "right". I'm sure it would have come to me, but don't know that I would have the patience to make it muscle memory. I haven't been paying enough attention to this thread - are you seeing benefits?
  14. Now why did you have to go and do that?!?!? I rely on the lack of reading comprehension to improve my odds, and still barely manage to crack the top 300.
  15. Congrats guys! It is nice seeing a regular contributor win one of these things, but I would have rather had it be me....
  16. It seems we complain about the tour stops on normal weeks and how they need to narrow the fairway and grow the rough which was pretty much the setup at BP. I'm guessing the players have stats that suggest they are better off taking their chances with a 9 or PW out of the thick rough than a 5, 6, or 7 from the fairway if they lay up.
  17. I agree it would have been nice if the place had been conducive to a 62 or 63 so someone could have pushed the issue, but the setup and weather really weren't allowing it.
  18. Looks like a lot of offset on that putter to me. Do you feel you need or like that much offset?
  19. Please post pictures when you get a chance! Out of curiousity, which Scottsdale TR putter? I am currently using the Senita. In general I like it and after regripping it with a SuperStroke this year, I have been putting better than I ever (I was averaging 1.9 putts per hole the last two years, so far this year I'm averaging 1.5).
  20. Happy #1: My baby is done with high school - last day of classes for Seniors was Friday. Saturday was prom. My wife and I worked the after prom party so we got to bed at 5 AM Sunday morning. I woke up, did a little bit of yard work, then camped in front of the PGA for the rest of the day. I was really kind of hoping DJ would have been able to finish stronger and post a number, but not at all upset about BK winning. Happy #2: Oldest daughter took off Saturday to study in Paris for 6 weeks. She loves her host family so far.
  21. Apparently I missed that you broke it?!?!
