  1. It’s a known fact that banjo pickers make better players Pug, three fingers or clawhammer? Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  2. My normal playing partner had a pitching wedge into the 18th at Antlers Creek in Falcon, CO. He prides himself a being a good player. He takes his swing and tops it, but it doesn’t go forward it goes up and back. Has spin on it so when it hits about 3ft behind him, it rolls forward again. Just behind him. He’s dancing and glancing all over the place trying to figure out where the ball’s at. In a tizzy. I fully understand it’s one of those things you have to be there and see but to me it was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen on the course. I was rolling on the ground in tears. We do have fun out there. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  4. Did a double take - the blog section is working again! I didn’t change anything, although I did install a IOS update. No matter, a big shout-out to whom ever fixed it [emoji448][emoji95][emoji383][emoji106] Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  5. Bubba is so much fun to watch. On #1, elevated tee - he aims into the next fairway to the right, indeed hits it into almost the middle of that fairway before it starts turning left. Ends up in the middle of the correct fairway, #1. I can imagine standing in the other fairway and hearing a ball whiz by, above my head, coming from the wrong direction [emoji12] Such fun to watch when he’s got it under control!

  8. I agree. The old version I would not be caught dead with. Ugly as sin and with my little wrists I might get caught up in the wind and blown away Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  9. Gimme the LM studio but please add in some extra cash for raising the ceiling. I visited PB once, looked down the 18th. Beautiful area but I’m too dang cheap to spend that kind of money [emoji383] Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  10. “You’re not seeing swimming pools expand; you’re not seeing tennis courts expand.” ... “Yes, the marathon is run in less time than it was years ago. Yes, the world-record time for the 200-meter is faster than it was a generation ago. That’s all fine. We in golf welcome that kind of improvement. But we don’t want that to jeopardize the game.” No one seems to be upset at swimmers breaking world records every single year. The 200 meters record isn’t getting slower, it’s being challenged every day. Why is it we can’t accept, as many have stated, players are getting better? Yes, equipment is helping, not only in golf but other sports as well. Scores aren’t going down? Let the boys play. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  11. Took my wife to the outlet mall to look for shoes, stopped by the adidas store. Just in case, right? And it paid off $32 out the door. I was tempted to buy two pair at that price. Now if we could only get some warm weather, please!
  12. Rick to the rescue - He liked them, to a degree Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  13. Agreed. During warm weather I can spend an evening chipping and putting at a lighted driving range (we only have one here) at zero cost besides time. To work on the top end of the bag requires costs beyond time. A lot of folks will hesitate. Another data point of one. I invested $200 at my local 1st Tee for a season pass at their indoor practice facility and have been going 2-3 times a week since November. According to the ‘About Golf’ launch monitors (not the best in the world) my game has picked up significantly. Swing speed on irons and woods are up 5-10mph, and climbing. Dispersion and spin is headed in the right direction as well. This is without any lessons. I was able to play last week for the first time in a month and the improvements indoors carried over. Ball striking was much improved, consistency shot over shot as well. It was fun to see, despite 40 degree temps and frozen greens. My takeaway is I have to put in the time if my game is going to improve. Unless I do the work I’ll remain a hack, I have higher ambitions *for myself* Might have wandered a little off topic here...
  14. Since I’ve been sucked into this topic, another set of data points, sorta. I don’t really have a dog in this hunt but it’s fun to play along A couple of videos that tested this hypothesis from Golf Sidekick- and
  15. From the ShotScope blogs Stroker referenced above - Article Greens in regulation is a stat that comes hand in hand with approach shots. This traditional statistic is built by firstly hitting a tee shot that enables you to hit the green, then by hitting your second shot onto the green (on a par 4). Shot Scope data has revealed there is a significant decrease in GIR percentage between an 8 and a 14 handicapper. Why? It is mainly due to the fact that, generally, a 14 handicapper won’t hit it quite as far and can’t reach some holes in regulation. Alternatively, it can be that the higher handicap player is less likely to keep the ball in play off the tee, which means they have no shot to the green with their 2nd shot and have no choice but to lay up/chip out. We like the fact that MGS is data driven, right? Shot Scope has your data. What makes for a great debate is we’re all individuals, all different. My strength (if I had any,) is your weakness. Cheers!
