  1. I currently have 2 putter grips sitting on my desk trying to decide which one I want to go on the putter... SuperStroke Traxion Pistol GT Tour Golf Pride Tour SNSR Contour 75cc They are both about the same size/diameter, but the SuperStroke has no taper, whereas the Golf Pride has a slight taper.. They both feel good in the hands, but I think I'm leaning towards the tapered Tour SNSR.. I've been playing the larger 104cc Tour SNSR grip for a while, but want a lighter grip to get a little more head weight feel in the putter.
  2. I use the Garmin Vivoactive 4 when I golf, and all the tracking I do with the watch on course is saved automatically to the Garmin Golf App. If you go to the "Scorecards" section in the app, select your round, and flip the phone horizontally, your full scorecard with Score, Fairways, GIR, Putts, etc will be displayed. I use this scorecard layout from Garmin to manually transfer the round into my handicap tracker of choice (currently The Grint) on my computer. It's a manual process, but it doesn't take more than a minute or two to transfer the information because the Garmin Golf app lays it out it in an easy to read format.
  3. Selling old golf clubs? You mean I've been doing it wrong all these years?! Most of my extras have just been donated to friends or family... I guess if I do sell anything at this point, I will just stick to local buyers with cash...
  4. I've been using the Vivoactive 4 for a couple years now. Works great as a golf watch alongside being my everyday watch. It would be nice to not have to download new courses from my phone beforehand though.. I guess I will have to upgrade to the Approach S62 at some point!
  5. When I was in Vegas I played Bali Hai, Paiute (Wolf), Rio Secco, and Cascata. Out of these, Cascata is definitely the nicest and is a great experience; however, I would not call it moderately priced... If you are playing more than 1 round, Cascata and Rio Secco have a deal to book both courses at a small discount (this is what I did). The deal isn't cheap, but it was well worth it! Paiute is a great resort a little north of Vegas and I would also highly recommend it. They have 3 courses on property, so you'll have plenty to chose from, just watch out for the wind! As for Bali Hai, it's right off the strip and has some good views of the strip from the course. It's fun with some memorable shots, but doesn't quite compare to the others I mentioned...
  6. I've been playing Bridgestone Tour B RX in yellow for a few seasons. Prior to that I was playing the Tour B RXS and Callaway Chrome Soft (Also in yellow of course!). I may dabble in some different balls once the new Ball Test comes out, it's about time I revisit my own ball testing...
  7. 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 it). This watch stays on all day everyday except for showers and charging .
  8. 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 narrower than normal 2E. This time, I stumbled onto the Callaway Solana TRX after 2 different golf stores. After the Callaways still felt good after a couple rounds, I bought a 2nd pair! I'm now thinking about buying a 3rd pair just so I can prolong the future shoe search a little longer! I mean they do come in 3 colors, and I already have the White and the Black... Does anyone else have this much trouble finding shoes??
  9. 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.
  10. 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 play with 13 clubs in the bag right now, I might just bag a lefty club...
  11. 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.
  12. 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 if it's simply a free phone app, just so blind shots don't affect you. I used to have to fish around for my phone/app when faced with a blind shot, now, I just look at my watch, which even has a green direction functionality built in .
  13. 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...
  14. Based on what I wear, my sponsors would be very mixed! Polos: Puma Pants: Adidas Hat: Black Clover Shoes: Nike
  15. 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! Sent from my SM-G970U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
