  1. Bill in Two Rivers, WI No, I've never had the opportunity to use a hitting net. But I sure could use one during the cold winter months here in Wisconsin!! I haven't used a launch monitor-- simply a speed tracker. Like I said, it would be great to have something with which to gauge my swing when the snow's on the ground!! Thanks for the opportunity to put my name in the hat! Good luck, everyone!!

  3. Bill K, Two Rivers, WI, USA Ping Anser 2 The color dynamics look as though they would significantly help in alignment and path. Would love to have the chance to try out the new Heppler Anser Ping 2.

  5. Greetings everyone! My name is Bill. I'm about to turn 64 years old and I have been golfing since I was in grade school. The entire family were/are golfers. Many of our vacations were golf vacations, fondly remembering the 'old' days at French Lick! Over the years, golf and friendships have been synonymous. I still get together with several of my high school buddies for an annual golf weekend in Green Lake, Wisconsin, where we play at Lawsonia and Mascoutin. A traveling trophy is involved, and this past summer I finally got to engrave my name on the winner's list. Last year

  7. I was playing a set of Maltby irons. Graphite shafts. I'll be hanging on to them for my 'senior' years.
  8. Greetings, Group! Well, my increased speed prompted me to go and get a new fitting. Last one I had was about two years ago. I made an appointment at GolfTec (since I've done business with them before, they had done my previous fitting, AND they were running a special for March) and, lo and behold, my increased speed warranted a move from my current regular shafts into a stiffer shaft. The fitting process was interesting. The first thing that the pro did was do figure out where I was at with the optimal shafts for my swing. One thing that was consistent was my need to ha
  9. Well, things didn't go quite as planned for me this week. Had a winter storm blow in and I came down with an awful cold. Those two combined to cause me to cancel my plans to visit my brother in Florida. Have rescheduled for a February visit. But the long and short is that I'm going to be behind a week as far as the protocols are concerned.
  10. I'm out of commission for this week as well. Visiting my brother who is hospitalized. Even though I'll be down in Florida, I'm not going to be able to break away. I'll pick things up next week. (A little iffy as far as my flight taking off from Milwaukee tomorrow evening, as they're expecting a new round of snow.)
  11. Echoing what several of you are saying, there are swings when I feel like I've cut through the air faster than ever, only to be surprised that the numbers were lower than I expected. Other times, I'm amazed that that last swing that I took registered as high as it did. I think a lot of that has to do with the tension in my arms and my hands. Those swings that feel like a really killed it are usually when I'm trying to use my arms (and consequently my hands) to generate more speed. The looser my arms and the lighter my grip usually produces higher numbers.
  12. I'm not too concerned. It's like when I was active in Weight Watchers... sometimes you gain a few, but you knew that you'd be taking them off in the long run. I sent a video of my latest driver swing to Daisy. Didn't hear anything back. Had to go to an indoor range to track the results. Their radar was only one or two MPH off of the speeds on my radar (used both at the same time to compare). I did notice something about my swing mechanics when I reviewed my videos. I'm going to try to make a little change-- for the good of my actual swing, not just for the SwingSpeed trials-- bu
