  1. Those are some really good ideas. The 8 challenges are already set but I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. PS: The HRC formula came from the one we developed for this challenge.

  5. They start and run with the FedEx playoffs. 3 weeks.
  6. Testers Announced! Reviewing the Sub 70 699 Pro irons will be: @Smellis745 @Tom the Golf Nut @GolfSpy MPR Reviews coming soon! _______________________________ A product with solid value never goes out of style. Couple that with exceptional customer service, and it's an attractive package for golfers who aren't necessarily looking to take out a second mortgage to purchase some golf equipment. That's the basic premise of Jason Hiland's company, Sub 70, that leverages a factory-direct model to keep help keep costs low. What about performance? Well, in 2019, the Sub 70 699 iron model finished sixth in the Players Distance category of Most Wanted testing. That might not sound like much until you consider it finished ahead of Callaway, PING and Titleist. That’s an accolade worthy of some refrigerator space. For 2020, the 699 Pro iron features a thinner topline, less offset, and a black, Tour PVD finish. This opportunity is open to right-handed golfers residing in the United States. If interested, reply to this thread with the following information: Handicap and Location Current Irons and 8-iron distance What do you know about Sub70?
  7. Man I'm just trying to hang onto a spot in the playoffs at all. This restart hasn't been kind to the ole Stud Muffins.
  8. Ah! That’s the one course around me I haven’t played yet. I took off work one day just to play there only to find out the giant “NOW OPEN TO THE PUBLIC” sign was only for the restaurant, not the course. Kind of a bummer. Glad to have another local spy though, welcome to the forum.
  9. TESTERS ANNOUNCED! We've got TEN forum members who are going to see if the SkyCaddie LX5 GPS watch is going to be the best tool for them to hear "Pin high" just a little more often! @AGutierrez7 @ballplayer002003 @JoshAndersonGolf @Josh Ross @knightsofnii @mikeanthony @MDGolfHacker @MrBandit @palvord @TCUFrog Full announcement HERE. There’s some irony when contemplating the market for watches in 2020. Specifically, it’s a situation where the original purpose of the item is no longer a defining selling point. Remember when the primary, if not the only, purpose of a watch was to keep time? Me neither. It’s a reasonable assumption that time is anything but of the essence; golfers are far more interested in all of the golf-related stuff that this piece of wearable technology does. The SkyCaddie LX5 GPS watch is built around the architecture of the SX500, which was named the “Best Handheld GPS” in MyGolfSpy’s annual Most Wanted testing. It offers an abundance of bundled golf technology, and did I mention it also tells time. Ain’t that something? TESTERS WANTED This review opportunity is open to members residing in the United States. If you'd like to be considered, please reply to this thread with the following information: Name and Location Have you ever used a GPS device or watch? Which one(s)? Current method of determining yardage
  10. Feeling pretty #blessed that my whole team has been going the first 3 events. Has made decisions pretty easy thus far. Too bad 5 of them missed the cut this week but definitely happy to have Blake play well this week. Anybody interested in a mid-tier trade? Guys like Poston, Glover, Harman, or Fitzpatrick come to mind.
  11. Yeah! I see you finally declined my trade offer from 2 months back
  12. Kokrak and Im caught some fire on Sunday. No complaining here!! Shocker of the week, our runaway leader thus far @Rwagn4 finished the tournament in dead last. Wow. He had such a big lead built up, it only dropped his team to 4th place. Must be nice!
  13. In the ever-evolving efforts of the forum, we'd like to hear from you as to how you browse the forum. From here, trying to gauge which content streams people use often for the forum and which can go away. We'll likely have a new one soon that is only photos. Great thing about it? It has every photo posted to every thread....not just Gallery photos. Baby tweaks but we're almost there. Just need to know what to eliminate before doing it.
  14. I had 7/8 make the cut but they're all chilling in nearly the same position. Which is decidedly NOT in contention. Middle of the pack baby....High Five!
  15. Alright baby! Back in business. Just picked up my bike from the shop. Cannondale was nice enough to replace the parts for free and I'm thankful to the shop for fitting me in amongst their insane demand for bike service. Turns out I've got way too much strength! Partially kidding of course but it turns out the solution was an upgraded crank set with a different type of threading (English vs square). The service rep humored me while I peppered him with curiosity questions trying to learn more about this particular problem. Trial ride around the sample path they have was nice and quiet so I'm looking forward to a full ride ASAP. My main course is on a Navy base so they are waiting to open in own terms. Do any of you guys have experience riding to the course before a round? I'm curious if it's worth it.
  16. If it makes you feel better, mine is in the shop At least you've you the option to ride sitting in your garage. If you're looking to get out for a 20 miler soon, one thing I've found helpful to increase distance is to find a nice midway point you can relax for a snack and break then ride home. Just a thought. There's an island I really want to ride to when I get my bike back but it's about 45 miles round trip. Kinda nervous about it so we'll see how I'm feeling when the time comes. Could be a good time to bring the drone for an extended stop.
  17. Feels good to be back in the familiar rhythm of checking Fantrax regularly way too early in the tournament.
  18. Lock it up! The official challenge thread has started here:
