  1. Not me, can't say that enough. Sent from my iPhone using http://r.tapatalk.com/byo?rid=88494"]MyGolfSpy[/url
  2. I don't think so, as I haven't told anyone about the video only posted it on my Instagram. And I don't think anyone of my friends knows I'm a member of these forum sites. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. Not me “dude”, and didn't have to order 790's. Got mine from the Tour Dept. a week after emailing my rep. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. Yeah the website isn't great. Their main fitter Kyle Slechta is in IL and basically does all fittings and order write ups. The shafts are a no-name Japanese brand that has been supplying us shafts for the last 8 years. The important part isn't necessarily the shaft, but the building process. Each person fit, has a specific frequency and every club they order is built to that frequency. In order for the clubs to be perfect, their tolerance is +/- 1 CPM, on tour this tolerance is +/- 5 CPM. What frequency matching does, it make each club play similarly, as far as flex, kickpoint, load, droop, etc. so you get more consistent numbers and accuracy. We have tested them against every major shaft on the market and they beat everything as far as swing speed, carry, spin, side, consistency, etc. The difference between a Sure Stix build and a Cool Clubs is the amount of time and effort that has to go into a set to build them perfectly. Cool Clubs can build an iron set in 30-45 mins, whereas our builder takes 4 hours to build a set. Because each club has to be weighted to a 10th of a gram and every cut moves the frequency. So Cool Clubs might go, Pure, Cut, check, shaft, grip. Our guy goes, ream head, weight, cut, check frequency, cut, check frequency, weight, cut, check frequency, weight, use algorithm to get epoxy weight, shaft, tape, check frequency, grip, check frequency, re-weight head if need be. If the frequency of the shafts are outside the tolerances it has to be re-built. It's a long tiresome process, but it delivers the best results. Now, unless you are there to witness the results most don't believe how good the shafts are. I was even skeptical at first, but after testing I can't believe how much more consist and overall better my numbers are. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. Unfortunately, they aren't making a ton of money from what I know and barely breaking even. On the Web even, after all expenses are paid you don't make a ton. Real money starts to flow in on the PGA Tour.
  6. As I stated, I appreciate their opinions and their wanting-ness to help me. But, I currently talk on a daily basis with many top college players and professional golfers on PGA Tour LA, PGA Tour China and the Web.com tour. So I personally feel their help and conversing with them is helping me more than just a person who played college golf. I understand how you guys feel I come off, but it's very far from how I am trying to come off. If you don't want to donate, then by no means to you have to. If you feel inclined, I would be more than happy to accept. No reason to try and argue, it's not worth any of our time. This thread has blown up for no reason, other than me putting a link to my GoFundMe page on here. It's a WITB thread, so I probably should have just stayed on that topic. My Mistake. Let's stop debating from here on out and just stick to the clubs, because I know we all have better things to do.
  7. If I were to play collegiate golf, I would play D1. I have already had the fortune of visiting both Lipscomb University and University of Arizona to talk with the golf coaches. My coach has had 75 D1 college golfers in the last 8 years, so though I appreciate their opinions, I will stick with what I've got.
  8. I appreciate this post, because that's how I feel as well. As far as SureStix, I actually pay for those, but I get a discounted price. They are the best shafts I have ever used hands down, weather I have to buy them or not would still use them because they beat everything. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. I don't flip what companies give me, just what I buy. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. I was told it was closer to 100K, and I have stated this isn't for my professional career. This is to help with costs for now. I understand why you guys don't want to donate, feeling like I am already privileged. I am privileged, I am more fortunate than many people in this world. But I can't do everything, because of the costs, so I wanted to set this up to see if anyone would be interested in helping me. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I understand that 5K won't get me far, but I am hoping it well help with costs for this year. If I put a crazy amount like 15/20K I know I would have been called out for it. I would hope someone chooses to invest in my career if I can achieve more exposure over the next 1-3 years, but for now the GoFundMe is what I've got. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. I am asking for funding to play in certain events and do certain things in golf that I am not currently able to due, given the cost. I guess your statement is close to what I am asking for, but I don't see why that is so bad. If you don't want to donate, then by all means don't. I'm not going to force a gun to your head for not helping out, I just put it out there for anyone interested. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. I've been playing competitive golf since age 9/10 ish, and started taking private lessons at around 12. I'm asking for funding to help me be able to play in certain events and do certain things in which I cannot right now due to costs. I totally agree it is probably better to donate to a third world county, their problems are much more important than mine. My dad works hard because he owns two businesses and wants a good life for his family, not because I want to be on the PGA Tour. Playing golf with my dad is very important to me, but I know he would rather see me make on the PGA Tour than play leisurely rounds with him. You said you pay insurance on a car and gas, so I thought you probably own one. My mistake. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. But I don't pay for the equipment! If I do pay for some upgrades it is minimal. I don't feel like it's that difficult to understand. I need the funding to play in events because my parents can not afford the money or time off work to take me to certain events and obligations, that is why I am asking.

  15. Guys, this isn't about the donations. It's a WITB thread, I put the GoFundMe up there because I thought maybe a few of you guys would be interested. Clearly, I was mistaken and I don't mind. But, no reason to tell me off or rip on me without facts.
  16. I never thought I will find lower scores in new equipment and I know that. I work harder than many people seem to think, given I drive to my coaches facility 1hr away, 4 days a week for 5 hrs a day and workout 5 days a week. I tout the few high-end products I have because it draws an audience. Example: Pure745's WITB on GolfWRX. All customizations, shafts, stamps, covers, etc. were either gifts, done/given to me for free, or paid for by myself. I don't feel it is that hard to understand this, yet I seem to have to say it over and over again. I have received kickback from many, many people for starting these but I truly don't understand why.
  17. That's great, congrats on the successful business! I too am thinking about student loans, which is definitely not fun. It seems you are fortunate enough to have a car, so congrats on that as well. I don't pay for my equipment, my parents don't either. Companies send me equipment during the year to use. Not to seem like a dick, but, being a 6.7 index you probably don't get into many AJGA's, so I wouldn't say you don't play them because they are expensive. I haven't golfed with my dad in months, he works from 6 am to 10 pm every single day. As stated in the GoFundMe, it wasn't set up to buy equipment it was set up to help with costly golfing expenses. I actually sort of have a job in retail arbitrage, I buy limited items from Scotty, Bettinardi, Lamb, etc. and flip them for profit. So when I am free I do some of that as well.
  18. Not using the GoFundMe for equipment, as that would actually violate my amateur status. Using it for tournament expenses and other costly competitive golfing expenses.
  19. All of the equipment was given to me by companies, or I took old equipment and sold/traded it for new stuff. This includes the shafts. Custom shop putter was paid for by me. Seamus Covers = Christmas Gift Lamb Divot Tool = Christmas Gift Custom Pouch = Christmas Gift Stamps were done for free and all club heads in my bag were sent to me for free. Irons don't have stamps, they are GolfDotz sent to me for free. I will correct my typo in the GoFundMe, so thanks for pointing that out. As I stated in my GoFundMe, if I had time for a job I would get one, but I truly don't.
  20. Whilst I am still trying to figure out my equipment for 2018, I think this is the direction I am heading in... Driver: M3/M4 w/PX PXV 39 5.5 tipped to 6.0/6.5 3 Wood: Epic w/PX LZ Handcrafted 60 6.0 5 Wood: Epic w/Oban Steel Prototype 4 Iron: X-Forged 21* UT (bent weak) w/SureStix Custom 5-PW: MP18 MB or Srixon Z965 w/SureStix Custom 48*/54*: Wilson FG Tour PMP w/SureStix Custom 60*: Taylormade Hi-Toe w/SureStix Custom Putter: SeeMore FGP Blade Ball:TP5X Also, I have set up a new GoFundMe Campaign and I ask you all check it out please. https://www.gofundme...-pga-tour-dream All the best, DominicScalettaGolf
