  1. If you do a search on the forums you will find some very in depth reviews from last summer. The made it in the bag for a couple guys and didn't for a couple others. They have a demo program for you to try them out for yourself. While the reviews were done well, to hit them yourself is the best option to decide how they will work for you.

  2. This. I suggest reading through the G400 reviews in these forums. I haven't been on here forever, but the rate at which people adopted this line of clubs was pretty impressive and must be pretty high on the list. Now that the 410's are out, you can probably find a great deal on one of these. Sent from my SM-A600A using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  3. I have also wondered about this. I certainly don't play at posh clubs with ProV's on the range, and while there is certainly the occasional triple knuckler, I don't notice a big enough difference to discount the yardage I see on the range. Does this mean I'm playing 80% balls on the course? Top golf certainly has heavily reduced carry balls. I think there is at least a two club difference from normal there.

  4. Hogan was the first brand I fell in love with. Then I had a decent stretch with mostly Adams equipment. I felt they put a pretty great product out there just sisnt spend through the roof on advertising. Callaway and TM were super low on my favorites list due to the snuffing of my two favorite brands. Now I think I am over my grudges. Reading through all the reviews of the different brands, it seems any one of them might be a best fit for anyone. I wouldn't feel one bit awkward playing a Wilson driver if it worked best for me. It would just have to be the best by a lot if I can get a G400 for $200 less. I think I still lean towards the little guys. Asked on what I have e read hear and other places my dream bag would be: G400 LST driver (maybe not so little?) Cobra F8 3 wood Adams XTD Ti 3 hybrid Sub70 639CB irons Hogan Equalizer black wedges Cleveland SOFT putter I think that bag would be pretty good boom for the buck.

  5. At first glance I thought you were claiming a double albatross as in quadruple birdie! How many cart paths and sprinkler heads would that take? I'd vote for albatross. It sounds so much more impressive than double eagle. Double eagle sounds too much like double bogey, and I don't like those. I earned one if these on a par five first hole a few years ago. I'll never forget one playing partner telling me "it all goes downhill from here". It did. It's hard to keep up that pace. Sent from my SM-A600A using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  6. Hmmmm. I forgot I got three of these with my green. I'll have to give these a try with the driver soon! Sent from my SM-A600A using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  7. I couldn't find an emoji with coffee coming out of the nose, so those will have to do. Not two minutes before I saw this I thought, "if I get selected for a review, I think I am going to pay @chisag to write it for me".
  8. I didn’t catch it all, but what I saw was rather entertaining. I think the way the media talks about him is annoying, but it doesn’t seem to make sense to hold him at fault for that. I thought he came across as a lot more likeable than most people give him credit for. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  10. I would also check with someone that knows your course conditions and something about bounce on clubs to determine if you are using the right bounce on your wedge. Your great detailed description of one of the last rounds indicated a lot of chunks or bladed chips. Your technique might not be perfect, but you might also be bringing a C grind to an S grind fight. I also agree with the recommendation to try out a bunch of shots with different clubs to see the rollout on each one. The Pelz book has some good illustrations and tables for this. In fact, I think I could pick out about 5 key things out of his 1100 page novel, and this would be one of those top five. I could tell you a 5 iron is going to roll out more than a PW, and you would say "duh, I know that". But to see the illustration and the few key clubs like a PW (50% flight, 50% roll) has been so key on my club selection around the green. My improved chipping has helped hide how bad I am at putting!
  11. Did you always use one clu. For the pitching and chipping? Is it a high lofted wedge? Or do you try and use a lower lofted club like an 8 when you are closer to the green? Sent from my SM-A600A using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. Well@Golfspy Barbajo, did you get to fondle these putters? What were your thoughts? Sounds like these won't be in the demo program for the near future. I was really hoping for some face tech in these. It's hard to tell, but it looks like a constant mill across the face. Sent from my SM-A600A using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. I'll second @GolfSpy MPR in that I enjoy these threads. We could have completely dissimilar swings, but it is neat to hear instructor feedback and keep an eye out for tell tale signs of this or that in my game. Keep the posts coming! I would also second @Kenny B. The long irons may be the scoring clubs for Tiger, but a 25 hdcp will probably in more cases than not see the biggest improvement from short game practice. I would recommend reading the Pelz Short Game Bible (it's long, so maybe skim it). He does as good a job as any explaining why the short game is so important. If you have a real life instructor, I'd stick with his guidance on your short game technique over Pelz's methods if they are different. Even if you are still 20 yards out, this falls well under the short game definition. The distance is going to vary from player to player, but 50yds and in is a decent guideline. If you can get these even into a 10 ft radius and you make 20% of those with a few close enough to one putt, that could be six-seven strokes gone right there. If you combine this with some swing improvements to eliminate the chunks, you will be slashing your hdcp faster than a prairie fire with a tail wind (had to reference my list of olegrayisms for that one).
  14. Congrats guys! Can't wait to hear how these perform and what color you paint them if they are keepers!
  15. Dan Jenkins passed away last week at the young age of 89. I certainly can't do his six decade career any justice, so I won't attempt to. The link below pulls together many of the tributes from within the golf industry. I am sure most of us have been entertained by some of his work over the years. https://www.golfchannel.com/news/golf-pays-tribute-late-hall-fame-writer-dan-jenkins-social-media As I was reading through some of these articles, something about his name really rung a bell. I have read through the list of his books, and I don't think I have owned nor remember reading one of them. I know he wrote for Sports Illustrated for a long time, but I would just occasionally read through those when at the doctor's office. The only thing from SI that sticks out in my memory is the Go Figure section. When I was a kid, my dad would get suits from a guy at church when he upgraded his wardrobe. One time, a "new" suit came with a grocery bag full of golf magazines. I think they were mostly Golf Digest and Golf Magazine, but there were surely some others in there. It didn't take long for me to decide that Golf Digest was the best magazine ever. I am pretty certain this was due to the humor column that I recall being in the last few pages of each issue. This was the greatest sports/humor writing that I had ever come across. I've done some searching on the interweb, and I can't find a single example of the contents or even a table of contents from Golf Digest from what I am guessing was '87 to maybe '90. I can read every page of SI all the way back to 1950 it seems. I see that Dan Jenkins had a column at Golf Digest that seems to cover that period, but short of heading to the library and remembering how to use that microfiche machine, I haven't found anything. Anyone have some 30 year old Golf Digests laying around that could sneak a peak? Or have a really good memory who would have written that column during that period?
