  1. The sheets are definitely a bio hazard Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  2. I hit a few shots in the short game area today The range was closed because there was nobody to pick up the balls [emoji849] Hit several 30 -40 yard low checking pitch shots to a back pin placement using Srixon Z Star. It definitely has a different sound than the Cobra I’ve been playing, I’ll try to get some audio later. I hit 10 shots with the Cobra and gathered up the balls and hit 10 with the ZipCore. The ZipCore definitely produces more spin as the ball was checking on the second bounce then rolling out a few feet. When I hit that shot with the Cobra I would get 2 full bounces, sometimes 3 before it really checks. Once I made the adjustment to carry the ball a few yards further I was hitting them inside 5 feet about 85% of the time and I holed out once! I’m hoping to get on a launch monitor this weekend and get on the course on Sunday. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  3. The funny thing is when there are several groups waiting to tee off all watching I usually make a nice slow smooth swing and hit the best drive of the day [emoji849] Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  4. That course looks really sweet! Would love a chance to play it one day Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  5. Loving what I’m hearing about these irons so far and I LOVE the black finish! If I wasn’t scared that I don’t really have the game for these irons I would order therm tomorrow. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  7. Well my Thursday got better really quick, there was an early morning ring of the door bell and I find this sitting on the porch! I will be testing a 50* RTX ZipCore wedge with mid bounce. It will be compared to my current gamer, a Cobra King PuR wedge. Here are some comparison photos I took this morning From the back they look similar in shape Face view, the shape is similar but the ZipCore has 18 grooves compared to only 17 on the Cobra and the ZipCore has the toe groves where the Cobra doesn’t. It will be interesting to see if there is a noticeable improvement in toe strikes (not that I EVER do that [emoji849]) At address the ZipCore has a little less offset but again to my eye the shape looks very similar. The ZipCore is fitted with new version of the DG spinner wedge shaft. I’ve played the old version of this shaft in my higher lofted wedges before with decent success, but since I use my 50* wedge for a lot of full swing shots my Cobra has the same shaft as my iron set, a UST Mayima Recoil F4. I’ll be paying particular attention to this during my testing to see the difference between the 2 shafts. I am hoping to get a practice session on a launch monitor this weekend and a full round in on Sunday. As always feel free to ask questions! Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  8. I am honored to be chosen to test the new Cleveland RTX ZipCore wedge. The ZipCore wedges were already high on my list of clubs I wanted to try based on some early rumblings I have been hearing from some of the Cleveland reps. I will be testing the 50* Mid bounce model, I chose the 50* wedge because it’s one of the most used clubs in my bag. I’m a Dave Pelz “Short game bible” disciple so I use my wedges with many different swings for different distances and trajectories. Full swing it’s my 100-110 yard club, 3/4 it’s my 80-85 yard club and 1/2 swing produces a low checking 50 yard shot. I have a ton of confidence in those shots and if I’m out of position or playing a long par 5 I look to layup to a distance that puts my 50* wedge in my hand. My current gamer is a satin King Cobra wedge, it’s one of my favorite clubs but is a couple of seasons old and ready to retire. I’ll compare the 2 side by side comparing sound, feel, distance and stopping power. I may also add a 54* ZipCore wedge to my bag as well and I’ll test it along side of my 54* Cobra wedge.

  9. Struggling with pull hooks right now, I guess I need to schedule a lesson to see what I’m doing....I can pull hook a damn pitching wedge right now [emoji15] 46-48 for an ugly 94 Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  10. Most people I’ve played with consider me to be an above average putter and I have a couple of drills that I do anytime I practice. 1. Is a standard for most pros the “around the world” drill...try to find a fairly flat spot on the practice green and put 4 balls around the hole at 2 feet....make all 4 then put them at 3 feet...make all 4 and move to 4 feet....if you miss any you start over at 2 feet. I go until I make all 4 at 5 feet then I move to drill #2 2. I some colored heavy string and tied 15 feet between 2 pieces of a thin fiberglass rod (driveway marker from Home Depot cut into 15 inch pieces and sharpened). I hind a flat spot on the green and stick the fiberglass rods into the green with the string pulled tight. I plans my ball under the string lining up my Sharpie line with the string and then make puts from 5-10-15 feet trying to keep the line on the ball rolling under the string and have the ball barely hit the rod at the far end. This drill works on distance control and starting the ball online. 3. I find a hole with a significant break and I try to visualize the aiming point for the putt then I build a “gate” with tees about 2 feet in front of the ball and I try and putt the ball through the gate and into the cup. This is my favorite drill because I’m a “spot” putter...on the course I look for a spot on the green to roll the ball over...especially on long putts. I find this helps eliminates 3 putts. As of yesterday I have gone 64 holes since my last 3 putt. Hope these help Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  11. Most sets come with a PW standard so most people buy gap, sand and lob wedges separately. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  13. Ping G410...very forgiving Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  14. I chip across the backyard to some chipping nets I have set up at 10-15-20 yards. That helps to “hit your spot” but it sounds like you are looking more for practice on how to control the ball once it hits the green. That’s hard to practice without a good short game area Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
