  1. I used to wear traditional watches, and would always take them off when I played golf. I then got a Fitbit for the activity/heart rate functionality and got used to wearing it while golfing. However, the Fitbit didn't offer any golf features, and I missed the traditional style watches, so I'm now wearing a Garmin VivoActive 4. It really didn't take any extra time to get used to golfing with it on after switching from the fitbit (even though it was significantly larger), and now I get all the activity/hr features, golf GPS, and a more traditional style (I also put a stainless steel link band on
  2. I've always just had 1 pair of golf shoes at any one time, but I recently purchased 2 new pairs, and might even buy another. Why you might ask? Awkward Feet! I'm not sure if my feet are getting more misshapen over time, or if all shoes are just getting narrower and/or wider, but I have the hardest time finding shoes that fit correctly. D width shoes are too narrow and 2E width shoes are too wide. My Goldilocks width would be an E, but of course no one purposefully makes that size. Instead, I have to try on dozens of shoes until I find that one model that has a wider than normal D, or a narrowe
  3. I love my pushcart! I don't walk as often as I should, although the majority of my rounds recently have been walking because of Covid, but I do enjoy walking courses. If I had to rely on carrying my bag instead of using a push cart, I wouldn't walk at all. Carrying a bag for a round just simply puts too much stress on my back.
  4. I voted for a lefty club on the basis that this would probably help out in that one random situation than any of the other specialty clubs would. The times I would use the other stated specialty clubs, I could think of different ways of utilizing my current set for those situations. There have been a handful of times I have played lefty out of trouble, but I have resorted to flipping a club upside down to play. Carrying an actual lefty iron would make this much easier! I like to mess around lefty as it is (have a driver and 5w that a friend gave me) but I don't have any irons. Seeing as I only
  5. I have the Bagboy Compact 3. It's a sturdy cart and has a decent amount of storage available. I sometimes wish I had the swivel front wheel for easier maneuverability around greens, but that's about the only negative I've found. It also folds into a fairly small size for easy transport.
  6. I say both! I have a Garmin watch, for everyday use, that I also use on the course for my GPS yardages and a Bushnell rangefinder. They both have their advantages. I use the GPS mainly for any non-approach shots and the rangefinder mainly for my approach shots. However there is still a bit of mix/matching based on the situation. I like having both available, and often times find myself looking at GPS on every shot (even after using my rangefinder) simply because it is on my wrist and simple to check. But previously being a rangefinder only golfer, you HAVE to have some kind of GPS backup, even
  7. A shelter in place order was given for all non-essential business employees in my area. All the courses are closed that I'm aware of and will remain closed until April 7th. I couldn't play right now if I wanted to...
  8. Based on what I wear, my sponsors would be very mixed! Polos: Puma Pants: Adidas Hat: Black Clover Shoes: Nike
  9. Way back on the first page of this thread I said that I have a love/hate relationship with hybrids... Well, I'm currently in the love phase! I have dropped my 4i and replaced it with a 22* hybrid! Going to a heavier shaft (85g) in the hybrid seems to have helped with my consistency. As for the woods, I'm still rocking the 5w (have a new one on the way!) but am dropping the 3w. When I went through my long game fitting, I hit my 3w and 5w the same distance and couldn't find a 3w that I could hit further than a 5w! So I now have an extra spot in the bag for something... I just don't know what yet
  10. I think the SC 200 would be the better overall unit, but the biggest consideration is the use of the SuperSpeed program. @revkev, correct me if I am wrong, but it is my understanding that the SC 200 will only work when hitting a ball, so it wouldn't be able to be used for measuring the speed of the SuperSpeed clubs. The one nice thing about the SSR unit is that you can use it for both the training clubs and normal shots. But I will admit, if I wasn't given the SSR unit for the review, I would be leaning towards the SC 200. I think it is more useful in the long run. Even if you can't meas
  11. Yea, the ball speed numbers appear to be fairly accurate. The last time I used the unit like this was a few weeks ago and I was seeing driver ball speeds in the 135-140 mph range with the odd 145 mixed in. I hit my driver on Trackman on Saturday and my ball speeds ranged from 139-142. But keep in mind that these were on different days with range balls vs premium balls. I've also used the unit for measuring mid iron ball speeds, and while I think these are fairly accurate as well, I don't have a recent comparison for the numbers...

  12. Long-term Update: Almost a year has passed since we started the review for the SuperSpeed program, and I wanted to make sure I provided a long-term update on how my swing speed has progressed. I just got back from my long game fitting at Cool Clubs. This is the first time I have been on a launch monitor since going through the SuperSpeed program, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I do have a couple big disclaimers before I go over the results… I dropped off of the SuperSpeed program soon after the Stage 2 reviews and have not done any of the speed protocols for cl
  13. I didn't see it mentioned already, but I have an SSR unit that was provided during the SuperSpeed review, and I use the unit for both Club Head speed as well as for Ball speed. The downside, is that since the unit will pick up the speed of the fastest moving object in front of it, you can only capture 1 of these speeds at any given time. To measure ball speed, I lay the SSR unit on its back, facing up, in front of the driving range mat. The unit needs to be in-line with the ball (so the ball travels over it), so you really only want to be doing this if you are VERY confident in not topping the
  14. I just got back from my long game fitting.. I know I teased a longer update after going through the fitting, but I'm going to have to split the update. I got baseline numbers from my current 5i, 5w, and 3w, but after going through the hybrid portion of the fitting, I was getting tired and my numbers were starting to drastically drop and my swing was getting inconsistent. I went ahead and ordered a hybrid, and am going to resume the fairway wood portion of the fitting when I pick up the new club! Hopefully I will be able to get some Driver numbers at that time also. But to give you a gener
  15. Nice to hear the update Rev! As another one of the original testers, I will try to spend some time this weekend and get my own update written up, but for the time being, here is a basic overview. I made it through the 2nd protocol (and our Stage 2 reviews), but I was never able to gain any firm traction in the 3rd protocol and fell off the program quickly after. The combination of working full-time and going to school at a University at night, I'm often mentally drained by the time I get home and just didn't have the discipline to keep up with the program. I am going in for a long game fitting
