  1. I have had several brands. Play desert courses so not smooth and hard. They have all made noise, not a lot but some creaking, whatever. Not really noticed engine noises. I'm a retired Marine so think the things should be able to go over river rock and other hazards. Maybe explains why I have had several. I don't move them when people are playing. I guess my first one annoyed a friend because he offered to take it home and I don't know, oil it or something. If I can't fix it with a hammer and/or duct tape, I am at a loss. But I like a little, repeat little, noise because I don't have to watch i
  2. I have a great three wood. I know it's great because every other month for 30 days it is superb off the deck. The intervening month, burn it, break the shaft, dent the nearest tree, smash it on the cart path BAD. But not looking for clubs anymore. Need to solve the puzzle with what I have. I guess I could go to the range, but dang it, to busy playing everyday and today it's like 111 out there so who wants to go to the range? I love my heaven wood with a 5 wood shaft. Solves the distance problem. Don
  3. I'm in complete agreement with the 6 lesson comments. Most pros will do this for you. I'm not sure I would spread them out over a year. Maybe 6 weeks to three months with quick ten minute checkups to make sure bad habits aren't creeping in between lessons. You want a 1)grip and setup lesson, 2)short iron lesson, 3)mid and long iron, hybrid lesson, 4)wood lesson, 5}short game and putting lesson and most important 6) on course playing lesson for strategy and decorum. Or some mixture of the required parts. Don't expect to get better real fast but should see plenty of measurable progress. This kin
  4. If your styling and like mock turtlenecks, look at Lands End Super T. It is essentially a light weight cotton t shirt but most courses will allow wearing a mock turtleneck style. They have long sleeves, and as long as you pick a lighter color, it's comfortable. I wear white and grey ones all summer here in Phoenix area. I also wear short sleeve ones with the separate sleeves as noted above. Also protects the neck from the sun. Bonus, they last forever. Right now they are on sale, ridiculously cheap.

  5. David LPS- in the same boat age wise. If you can find an adjustable hybrid set that you like, like the Big Bertha 19, you can order new weaker shafts in a couple of years and keep the clubheads. I ended up ordering women's clubs on the preowned site and then appropriate shafts for my wife and I, and that came out way cheaper than ordering the mens clubs. In a few years when I go to softer shafts, can just order the shaft. You can use this for a lot of things as well. Are you not comfortable with FW because of the shaft length? You can buy shorter shafts and just screw them in. Hope t
  6. Something else to look at on Callaway preowned. If you shop the women's hybrids and/or fairway woods, like the epic or big bertha line, you can get dirt cheap hybrids and separately buy the mens shaft which just screws right in, for sometimes cheaper than the men's hybrids. My wife uses senior shafts and I was able to get three hybrids for her in January with separate bought men's shafts and saved a bundle. Also 2 for me. The heads are exactly the same. Right now, a lot of the like new were demos that were never hit last year due to covid. In any case, if I go to sell the hybrids, I can sell
  7. There was a test several years ago that showed spin numbers for wedges come down through the proverbial "75 rounds", then flatten out, and then get better again as the club ages due to the wear adding some spin. The test definitely established they they never return to "new spin rates", but they remain eminently playable. I wish mygolfspy would conduct a new test and see if this is still true. Additionally, maybe when they start to improve again, does rusting the club or any other legal mod add any spin to an old club? What would that mod be besides natural rust if any? Does the spin rate diff

Seriously though, there was a test several years ago that showed spin numbers come down through the proverbial "75 rounds", then flatten out, and then get better again as the club ages due to the wear adding some spin.

  9. Don Phoenix AZ Have always walked since starting playing golf in the early 80's. Yes, I have a Caddytrek and an Alphard on a Rovic S1. I have used electric trolleys for over 15 years. My first electric cart was the Sun Mountain electric cart with the motor in the front wheel. I can provide a wealth of experience for this test.
  10. I learned to play golf a long time ago and the theory then was to sweep the ball off the tee. Hitting a drive high on the face with an average wooden driver was not the way to go. Golf now is overly complicated when a specific driver swing needs to be learned, i.e., hit up on the ball which is so different from what is needed for every other club. Pro's and elite amateur's have the time and desire. The problem with golf club design right now is the clubs we used are designed for pro's who can swing up on the ball. The sweet spot is high on the club. Most golfers can't learn one swing, much le
  11. Yup, I had grave misgivings when I saw the commercial as a big play to upend mygolfspy findings. I don't buy Callaway balls. That being said, I haven't bought balls in years. Find to many on my course. Other than driver distance, see no real difference in my game with picked up Pro V1 or V1(x), Callaway Soft and Soft(x), and TP5 and 5x. Sure, slight differences in height and distance with all clubs and characteristics around the green, but, the only ball wobble I have ever seen in my hits or hits from the people I play with are, well, shanks. I appreciate the testing, but I still think until m
  12. Donald/Goodyear, AZ Can You Play Golf in Dec and January-Yes (walk at least three rounds a week) Fitbit
  13. Donald/Phoenix AZ Have You Ever Used a Hitting Net- No Do you use any sort of LM with one- No Thank you for the opportunity
  14. Donald Phoenix AZ Callaway Epic 8 90 TSi 2
  15. Donald/Phoenix AZ 8 SM6 50,54,58 each in a different finish. Black, chrome, satin so it easy to pick the correct one. I would like to see if the hype for the current crop of raw wedges is correct. A long time ago I "coked" my Wilson R90 even though it was stainless steel. While it is still possible to rust stainless steel, it isn't all that easy so not sure I had the full effect. BTW, how are the winners going to determine wedge numbers without a shot monitor? What are the testers going to be looking for?
