  1. Ok, so you posted them while I was typing my last reply. The course looks beautiful, but I'm with you on the trickery. They don't need to make every shot be a miracle. You can cross it off the list, at least. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  2. Sorry it sucked. Can't wait to see the pics. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  3. Wow. Great group again. I'm starting to think there aren't any bad choices for testers. Good luck and have a great time testing. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  4. Congratulations! That is just awesome. I've never seen one. Must have been a huge adrenaline rush. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  5. I should have quit after the 1st hole. Great drive, great 3 wood, solid wedge in, lipped out the first putt, drained the second, par 5. Then the wheels completely fell off. "That's all I've got to say about that." Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  6. I've done this in the past and have played a little better rounds when I do. Doesn't solve all my problems and it doesn't always work for me, but I would say the experience is largely a positive one. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  7. Happy birthday! Have a great one. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. Had a great time playing with@revkev and a couple of his friends. Good thing I had a good time, because my game was awful. My driver has completely abandoned me, I chunked ALL of my irons, had way too many penalties and 3 putts. And yet, I can't wait to do it again. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  9. It's a really cool logo. Everyone should have one. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  10. Rob, 26 PGA SuperStore, Naples, FL I finally got the opportunity to sneak into the closest PGA Superstore and demo the D7. I really would like to have the chance to attend one of the challenge days, but the ones that fit my availability schedule are too far away. When I arrived I spent a few minutes wandering around, since I don't get into the store that often. Let's just say it would be super easy to spend a ridiculous amount of money very quickly. I then made my way to the fitting/practice bays and connected with one of the fitters. I told him I was looking to hit the Wilson D7, and after about 10 minutes of digging, he came up with the 7-iron head and put in a KBS stiff shaft. We tried a couple of the fitting bays but had computer troubles, and finally went to one of the practice bays to get a decent setup for a lefty. After a few minutes of warming up with my C200 7-iron, I switched to the D7. I can tell you right now that the KBS stiff is not the right shaft for me in that iron. That being said, it was still pretty impressive. According to the computer I averaged about 147 with my C200 over 15 shots and I averaged about 156 with the D7 over 25 shots, even with a shaft that I know I wouldn't get fitted into. The fitter who had set me up had disappeared, so I didn't get a chance to swap out the shaft for a different one. The dispersion didn't seem to be much different between the two irons. I would say that averaging an extra 9 yards without being any further offline is actually a better dispersion pattern. The D7 would probably appear to be fairly chunky to someone who's not used to the appearance, but I didn't find it too distracting. I've played Ping Eye2's, Taylormade Burners and the C200's in recent years, and don't think the D7 is any worse looking than any of those irons. When the hour I had available to demo the D7 was up, I went looking for someone to give the club back to. I found the same fitter who had set me up, and gave it back to him. I gave him a quick rundown of what I experienced and he said "that's the best iron in the store right now. For a mid-handicapper, you can't do better than that. It's designed to get the ball up in the air quickly and offers great distance." That's a direct quote. Overall, I was pretty impressed. I like my C200's and I'd love the opportunity to play with the D7's some more.
  11. Strictly for what it's worth: I had a Samsung Gear Fit Pro2 that I got for completely non-golf-related reasons. I was playing with a friend who had a laser, I was using 18 Birdies for yardages at the time, and it occurred to me that there may be an app I could add to my watch so I didn't have to carry my phone with me. A little research, and I discovered Taylormade had "partnered" with Samsung to push their MyRoundPro to the Samsung smart watches. It gives me front, middle and back distances. It works with the Sport I'm currently using, and worked with the Gear Fit Pro2 I was using previously. If I can remember to mark my shots on the watch, which is always an issue, it will give me stats at the end of the round. These include strokes gained and distances for each shot. I'm sure if I used the app better, there would be a lot more there for me as well. Just another option to consider. Trying to decide probably isn't hard enough.
  12. Yeeaaaaahhh, buddy. Go kick some serious patookus. Just remember to have fun in the process. I'll be anxiously awaiting your updates.
  13. Somehow managed a 2-2 week with Jason Day missing the cut. However, way too many rounds above par. At least the one I left on the bench was a WD instead of earning 65 points for the tournament. That would drive me nuts.
  14. I was put into contact lenses in 3rd grade, which would have been 1976, because my glasses were getting too thick and they weren't really ready with the new plastics that allow a much thinner lens for the same amount of correction. In 1997, a friend brought me a copy of a golf magazine (I can't remember which one) that had an article about Tom Kite and his experience with LASIK surgery. That was all it took. 3 months later, I was in Montreal having mine done. Why Montreal? Because at that time I needed so much correction that I couldn't get it done in the US. I believe it had been approved for correction to -7.00, but I was -10.50 and -11.00. Two great, uncorrected years followed but my eyes have continued to change. I wear glasses regularly, although my driver's license actually doesn't call for correction. I wear contacts on the weekends and doing things like playing golf. My eye doctor has fitted me with distance vision contacts in both eyes, and I wear cheap readers on top of them when I need to. I've got plenty of experience playing sports in glasses, in contacts, and without any correction and I can confidently tell you that you can adjust to just about anything if you give it some time. I really like the contacts for the ability to put sunglasses on the top, and take them off for a minute or two as needed. Whatever you choose, just give it some time before you give up on it.
  15. Sorry, but I've got to ask....what's the other 4%?
  16. Wow. I usually can't get through 9 holes with the same ball, much less 90. That's pretty amazing durability. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  17. Well put, and completely accurate. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  18. Wow. That's gotta hurt. I feel for you. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  19. Thanks. Was it really only the second hole you played with it? I would have sworn you used it more than that. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  20. Fabulous. It really is amazing the challenges people manage to overcome. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  21. Not a single round under par. Ouch. At least I left Els on the bench for his WD. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  22. Happy Birthday.[emoji322][emoji512] Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  23. Congratulations all. I'll be hanging on every word of your reviews. A super group. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  24. 4: I feel guilty as hell spending money to pay someone to do something I can do for myself.
  25. My buddy has some of these. Pretty sure I can have a couple. Got to be as bad as a Nitro, doesn't it? Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
