    NFL thread! What are you thinking?

    Every year the Patriots lose key players to free agency because they refuse to be held hostage by the massive contracts that teams payout for role players. So each year the Patriots go out and find true athletes,, hungry players that just want to play. Belichick gets the absolute best out of a player like no other coach has in history. Sunday the entire team played their asses off. Every player had a huge play during the game at one point or the other. They beat a far better team that had better position players across the board. That formula has been played out for the past two decades. The run they are on is not supposed to be possible in the era of free agency. Look at the list of teams that make the superbowl and then vanish into mediocrity the following years. The Patriots have just refused to follow the rest into that mediocrity and it pisses everybody off. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    I'm going to completely destroy your theory. Playing the the AFC east is not helping the Patriots as the teams have been far too soft and they dont get up for those games. Let's go over thier wins this year over the rest of the league. All of these wins were against top ranked and division leading teams. Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Chicago, Green Bay, Minnesota. Then in the playoffs they had nothing but tough opponents. Chargers, KC and the Rams. The AFC East had no real impact on the outcome this year. Two big losses this year came against teams that were coached by former Patriots staff. Coaches that knew every wrinkle and flaw to be exploited. Matt Patricia and Make Vrable know everything about the Patriots and made them look bad. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    SGI Irons For Low Handicapers?

    I hit a lot of different clubs and can play at a high level. I make very consistent contact and find the SGI while they are straight as an arrow and easy to hit can leave a bit of a numb disconnected feeling. Players style clubs tend to have a lot more feel and feedback as well as being a bit easier on moving the ball around. For myself I like a club that bites back a bit on poor contact. I'll make adjustments on the fly. If I'm playing a SGI iron I lose some of the feeling of where I'm striking the ball. I'll get lazy with my swing and let some bad habits creep in. This is just me though. Playing blades is cool for the ego but punish the score card on off days. The forged GI category is where I am at these days. They are easier to hit but still give the feedback I enjoy. I also do a fair amount of club fitting and the better players gravitate to players designs every single time. I'll let them hit all sort of club styles and they all go the same way. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk

    Golfworks PTM1 is awesome!

    That PTM 1 is something very special. Its Maltby to a whole other level. I have had a few of their putters but this is Cameron quality. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk

    New Players Distance Iron

    What surprised me about the TS-2 is that the VCOG is fairly high yet they spin really well. I put it head to head with a TE 7 iron and the TS-2 8 iron which match up loft wise. The TE launches much higher and couldnt match the dispersion of the TS-2. For a 'Distance' players club they are extremely accurate. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk

    After the first round you will never even notice the topline. I'm coming from blades and at first I was horrified.. then I started to hit them. The performance is what comes through. Plus the TS-1 that's close to release is much narrower if you really can't get past it. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk

    This is what he is talking about. It's a Japanese carbon steel milled putter that is astounding. Not only is it gorgeous but its feel is as good as anything I have rolled. I have built 4 of them and people love them. Plus the price could be double and you would still believe you got a huge bargain. Truly one of the most underrated putters to come out this year.

    What golf ball do you play?

    I have gravitated to the Snell MTB black mostly for how straight and long it is off the driver while still giving me your ball performance every where else. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk

    The 1st picture is the P790 And it clearly shows that it's not spinning as much. This was also proven in the golf course where the P790 couldnt hold the green. These were both 6 iron heads with the same loft Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk

    If more people realized that despite the MUCH lower cost that they perform as well or better than comparable OEM Maltby wouldn't be able to keep up. I put the TS-2,, head to head with the P790 in the simulator and got the same exact launch and ball speed numbers but spin numbers were much better than the P790. I have put Bobby products over the years against every OEM and the only thing that you're getting with OEM is less money in your pocket. Over the years Maltby has designed quite a few OEM heads. They literally wrote the book on playability and their standards for club categories are used industry wide. I love it at the 1st hole when someone will look at my Maltby gear and scoff at it.. at the 18th hole I gladly take their money. I did a fitting with the woman yesterday that couldn't hit her ladies Taylor made driver more than 75 yds. I handed her an L Tech driver at 15゚ and the 1st 5 shots all when a 150 yd. Flat out the Malby stuff works and they know how to design it for specific golfers and categories Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk

    New Players Distance Iron

    I have had these in play for a while now. I switched to the Dynamic Gold 105s S300 and it was a good move. Great distance, and I mean great. Accurate and they stop!!!. I am truly smitten with these and the more I play the more I love them. Shot a -4 and backed it up with a -2. A true point and shoot set of iron for a player. The dont like to be hit thin but on the button they feel amazing. Plus the sole is like magic. Not quite a true v sole but it glide through turf and rough. Have not hit anything fat and that is my miss. The TS-1 release is something I have been waiting for but these are so good im no longer waiting for them. If you struggle ball striking you might not like the feel but they still perform amazing. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
