  2. I'd love to be a tester for this product. I'm currently using a Nikon Coolshot 40i. and am not thrilled with it. Jim, the retired GC Super

    I'm looking for recommendations for the best method/program/app for keeping your golf stats. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Jim
  4. I won the 2010 Senior Club Championship with a set of Iron Wood hybrids in the bag. I'm currently using the Exotics EXS 3, 4, & 5 Hybrids. I plan on trying their EXS Driver as soon as the weather breaks here in New England.
  5. I'd love to test the New Ping G410 Driver 1. Jim, the retired GC Super, Plainville, MA 2. GHIN 7.7 3. Swing speed 95 4. Ping G400
  6. I have been meaning to share these images. The course is Hamilton Farms on south west New Jersey. Every October the Met. GCSA sponsors and Chapter Team Championship for all of the Golf Course Superintendents Associations in the Northeast. I was lucky enough to be part of the New England GCSA team and to play the wonderful Hurdanz, Frey designed course. Jim, the retired GC Super
  7. What is a fade? I had a Pro I used to work with tell me I had 3 shots. A draw, a hook., and FORE ON THE LEFT!! Jim, the retired GC Super.
  8. Thank you so much for posting that, it just made my day. Jim
  9. My wife had a $10 coupon for Dick's that she gave to me. I've been using the Titleist Player's golf so I thought I'd use the coupon to get another glove. They were out of the Player's glove but the Under Armour glove caught my eye. Tried it and loved it...my new favorite glove!! Jim, the retired GC Super.
  10. Was visiting the course I used to manage just before Christmas and they were throwing away an array of clubs that had been left in lost and found and not claimed for more than two years. I noticed an old Spalding T.P.Mills TPM 4 model putter. Saved it from the dumpster, put a new grip on it and can't believe how well I'm rolling the ball with it. Is a low tech blade like this worth trying next spring? How much will I be giving up with this simple blade? Last year I switched between a Scotty Cameron Futura 5s and a See More mallett. On my putting mat in my basement I'm making significantly more putts and getting better roll with the old TPM 4. Jim, the retired GC Super
  11. Great point JLukes! Forgot to mention that in 2018 I took a series of lessons to correct some flaws in my swing. Worked on eliminating any lateral movement, leading my downswing with the left side, and having a consistent setup. I'll be going back to the same pro for a tune-up this spring. Jim
  12. Last year I posted my New Year Golf resolutions and wanted to follow up but couldn't find the post. So a bit of a follow up: 1. Get in better shape: I hired a personal trainer to work on flexibility and over all health. I'm 5 lbs lighter than last year! 2. Get my handicap down to 5. I flirted with 5 at bit in August but slipped in the fall. I played most of my rounds away from my home course but got to play some wonderful courses. Many were very long and hard...ended the season at 7.7 index. The pro at the course I was the GC Super for a long time, told my at age 71 don't complain!! 3. Compete for the Senior Club Championship. Lost it on the first hole....blocked my drive slightly to the right and never found the ball. Hit my provisional in an un-playable lie and made a 9. Tournament over....finished with an 81 and followed up with a 76 (Par 70) 4. Compete for the GC Superintendents Association of New England Senior Championship. WON IT!!! Three over for the day...putted great! I think I'll keep the same goals for 2019 but add one....SHOOT MY AGE. My home course is a par 70 and my low round there last year was 72. So it's within reach!! Jim, The retired GC Super.
  13. The Golf Course Superintendents Association of New England had there season wrap up meeting at Whitinsville GC. It's the only 9 hole course on Golfweek's top 100 and well deserved. What a joy to play!!
  14. I've always been a Titleist guy. Have used the Pro V1 since it was introduced, but our Pro is trying to get me to change to Srixon. Srixons are OK but I really didn't like them in the wind. I've toyed with the Titleist AVX but have been playing poorly, so I felt it wasn't a fair tryout. Took a couple of days off from playing, went to the range and worked on some things my Pro wants me to correct in my swing. (eliminate lateral movement and have "knuckles down" and impact.) So I played today with the AVX and hit it great!! It is consistently 5-10 yards longer than anything I've been playing and there is plenty of spin around the greens ( not quite like the Pro V1 but very good) Now the question!!?? Was it the ball today or have the lessons and things I've been working on finally started to positively impact my game?? By the way, shot 74 (par 70), after a long string of rounds in the 80's Jim
