  1. I bought a Scotty Cameron Cameron & Crown Newport Mallet 1 after unexpectedly winning $225 in pro-shop credit... looks like I'll be posting a review here in a couple of days! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. My Rams at Colorado State get to play in a shiny, new on-campus stadium this season. I'm just hoping they're over .500! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  4. My biggest problem with the Mack Daddies is the look. I don't like the color or the way they look at address. This is obviously very subjective! I haven't ever hit the Mack Daddies, but they've been popular, it seems. I'm still loving these wedges a month and 20+ rounds later. The finish is starting to age very nicely and I'm confident swinging all three of them.
  5. I'm very excited to have been selected to review the Vice Pro! My name is Riley and I'm 25. From September to May, I referee junior hockey for a living and from May to August, I work at a golf course in my home town. I started playing golf when I was young, but stopped shortly after starting and picked the game back up about a year ago now. My handicap index is currently 15.5 (started the summer at about 20). I get to spend most of my free time at the course practicing, so I've made a lot of progress. I'd say that the strengths and weaknesses of my game can be pretty erratic. My most constant weakness is my long irons and my most constant strength is full shots with my wedges. My ball flight is fairly high, but has dropped a little bit since changing from regular flex TM Burners to stiff AP2s. At the beginning of this season, my typical miss was a push slice, but after changing my swing quite a bit this summer, it has transitioned to a pull or pull-hook. I've played quite a few different balls this summer, but I've played most with Pro V1s and Chrome Softs. My swing tempo is moderate to quick and my driver club head speed is 105-110. I'll post a video of my swing soon! Probably in this post or Stage 2. I think that golf appeals to me because of the inability to "win". I love competing against myself and play by myself a lot, probably over half of my rounds, to be honest. I'd say I'm a serious golfer, but I am not one to get mad out there on the course and beat myself up about a bad round. I really enjoy being out there and try to have fun every time. I'm currently very content with my bag. I'm playing Cobra F7 driver and 3W (both with Project X HZRDUS Black stiff shafts), a Callaway XR Steelhead 19º Hybrid, Titleist AP2 4-PW (DG AMT stiff), Cleveland RTX3 50º, 54º, and 58º (tour raw), and a Cameron & Crown Newport Mallet 1 (I'm going to post a review of this putter soon!). I did a lot of research on these clubs and hit a bunch of different combinations. I never had a true fitting, but I'm very happy with how I'm playing these clubs. I'm generally a tinkerer and love technology. Here are some photos of the balls:

  9. Spent an hour and 10 minutes on the practice green doing the ladder drill and reverse ladder drill to improve my speed/lag putting. I sat down with our local pro a couple of days ago and after looking at my 5 most recent scorecards, he said that he's confident I can break 80 by the end of August if i dedicate the majority of my practice to the short game, while maintaining my current long game.

  10. One of the assistant pros at the course I work at is a Taylormade staffer and he's been talking about the retail release of these non-stop since Rory put them in the bag. Not very detailed info, but I heard tv commentators say Rory was hitting a PW on a 150 flatter par 3 at Erin Hills into a slight headwind. Take that for what it's worth!

  11. I'd say my time on the ice as both a hockey player and referee has taught me to put my my nose to the grindstone, but more so refereeing. There are nights when the whole building turns against you, but you can't just give up and the job has to be finished and all all you can do is be thankful that it's over when you're sitting in the room after the game. I've found that similar situations can happen on the course. Sometimes, I'm just happy to have gotten in another round, especially if I'm playing with my dad or someone else close to me. If you love something enough, you will gladly sacrifice comfort for it, which you obviously do and have! I put my career on hold and lost a girlfriend of 4 years to chase a dream. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't think twice. I've fallen in love with golf. maybe not quite as much as hockey, but I think it's made me a more patient, mentally tough individual! Hope your knee feels better. Injuries are so frustrating. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. Seeing that you've listed the F7 and the AP2, have you given the Cobra Forged Tour a try? I recently got AP2s but I was very torn between them and the Forged Tour. I loved the feel of both, but I like the look of the AP2s more. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. I'm lucky enough to get help from our local pro, and have been blessed with a little bit of athleticism. My goal is to break 80 by the end of August. It's a lofty one, but I've got the time and the resources to give it a shot! Driver: Cobra King F7, Project X HZRDUS Black 6.0 3W: Cobra King F7, Project X HZRDUS Black 6.0 Hybrid: Adams Pro 18°, Aldila Rogue Black Irons: Titleist 716 AP2, DG AMT S300 Wedges: Cleveland RTX 3.0 50°, 54°, 58° Putter: Cleveland Huntington Beach 6, 33 inch
