  1. Cyrus Richmond, British Columbia, Canada Handicap: 1 Titleist 716 AP2 Project X 6.0 1/2 Degree Over, 2 Degrees Upright PING i500 Thank you MyGolfSpy for this amazing opportunity to work with one of the best equipment companies in the game!
  2. Amazing drive Clint! 373 is what the long drive guys are aiming for! Driver-9 iron into a par 5 is unreal! You get my vote Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. Tier 1: Rory McIlrory Tier 2: Alex Noren Tier 3: Kevin Kisner Tier 4: Pat Perez Tier 5: Cameron Smith Winning Score: -3
  4. Reunion is a great resort facility, you will have fun at all three courses if you do decide to play the Nicklaus course and complete the trifecta... Just down the road from you is Mystic Dunes...its a fairly flat, links inspired course, check out their site here: https://www.mysticdunesgolf.com/....youcan get some crazy cheap deals for rates online for this course. Another 10 miles down the road you also have Celebration Golf Club, built in a Truman Show styled community...Celebration is an interesting town and they have a nice RTJ designed course. I've played it many times over the
  5. What an effort to record and edit these videos! Wow they are all great! Heading to Vegas next week is TPC Vegas a must play for my visit?
  6. Course looks sweet! I was in Cancun a few years ago and played the Nicklaus designed Moon Palace Resort...course was very average but the best part of the deal was the green fee was inclusive of all you can eat F&B throughout the round (including alcohol) this is a common theme for many of the Cancun resorts, but it was the first time I saw it at a golf facility. That being said, the course was average and highly unmemorable. Will definitely tee this track up in future trips! Great post!
  7. Played it once before, many years ago when I was still in college. Here is a picture of the sign stating the local rule. Can't imagine how many golf balls are in that lake! Our group all started thinking about 17 from the 1st hole onwards? You are so excited but there are a lot of great holes leading up to it. But I think it's impossible to not stare at that island when walking up the 16th hole. For the record hit a 9 iron to the center of the green and successfully two putted for my par.
  8. Awesome course reviews! What a great value for guys living in the Central Florida area, keep it up
  9. I'm an Orlando native, but visited Destin about a decade ago for some golf. Kelly Plantation is a great track, designed by Freddie Couples, definitely worth playing, and Emerald Bay was also good, I check their website and saw they underwent a complete renovation in 2014, so maybe even better now! Enjoy the golf and your time in Destin, its a beautiful spot!
  10. Awesome thanks for the reply! I've heard of Mile Square and will be sure to check it out, thanks so much
  11. Hey bud! You will be in for a treat when you guys come to BC, we have some beautiful tracks here and Whistler area has 4 great courses to choose from. Nicklaus North is amazing and a fun test of golf. The course has one of the best collection of par 3's I've ever seen and it is one of the most scenic courses I've played in Canada. There are beautiful flowers, gardens, trees and log cabins throughout the course. The course itself is relatively flat as it sits in a valley between the mountains. It's a fun round of golf with the perfect balance between challenge and fun on all the tee box
  12. That's awesome you had the chance to play the course whilst the grandstands were being constructed. Very unique way of enjoying the course. I had a good mate, describe his round at Carnoustie to me in great detail recently and it sounds like an amazing test of golf. I've enjoyed watching the two previous Opens there and no doubt this year's will be a great one to watch as well. I'm thinking Fowler or Garcia will grab it....at least I hope so! Thanks for sharing the pics too, so great!
  13. I did watch the first two episodes but found it to be poor. I think there is only so much you can do at a top golf facility, at the end of the day it gets boring just trying to hit shots into targets. This is suppose to replace the big break, but I honesty like the different challenges you have when playing on a proper golf course. Breaking the glass, flop shots over the wall, short game challenges. I know this has been done before and they are trying something new, but it looks like they just got a bunch of attractive Instagram golf girls and are trying to appeal to that younger market. It's
  14. One of the best ways to practice speed is to take a break from using your putter and like a bowling stroke, roll some balls on the green. I find often with students that if they struggle with their speed control, they are often too caught up in mechanics. Forget the stroke, dial in your feel. If you through a ball to your friend 10 yards away you don't calculate how much power you need to use. You simply react by using your feel. Putting should feel more like this. Practice rolling some balls on the green like a bowling ball. After about 5-10 mins of practice, use your putter and try and “fe
  15. Have fun buddy! Take lots of pics and get those Instagram stories going Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. I would like to see all the WGC events be played outside the US personally, but it makes sense with FedEx as the title sponsor for the points race that they get a big tournament in their backyard. Agree also that it's a sad loss to see Firestone off the PGA Tour schedule, but the tour is growing and changing! Always exciting Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. I watched this film a couple years ago and it brought back many memories of my former life as a full time golf coach. I'm a PGA Professional and worked in China for almost a decade growing the game and coaching elite juniors. The expectations of parents portrayed in this movie was exactly the same thing I experienced first hand. In 2013 I brought a team of 8 Chinese juniors to San Diego to compete in the Callaway Junior World and it was an eye-opening experience. I thought it was just these "tiger mom" parents that were over the top, but as I sat on the range with junior golfers from around th
  18. also you know what is a great hidden gem? Check out Ben Brown's Golf Course at the Ranch....only 9 holes...somewhere around $30-40 but its a fun course to play! https://www.theranchlb.com/golf
  19. Best way to play Pelican is to take advantage of their twilight rate, still can get in 18 holes for half the price!
  20. I'm originally from Orlando, and both of these courses are great! Lake Nona is a pleasant experience and a lot of fun to play, while Isleworth is tough as nails (hence why they have the Tiger tees and a lot of tour pros base there). A favorite amongst many Orlando golfers is Bay Hill, its a really fair test of golf but still has some challenge. Definitely should make the effort to get down there, especially if you have the invite! Nona and Isleworth are tough tracks to get on! Plus I like Zylem's recommendation, make a trip and add in Streamsong while you're at it.
  21. Wow what a detailed post! I was fortunate to play both courses at the Shenzhou Peninsula Dunes...loved every minute of it. Such a great resort and the Sheraton Hotel is also really nice! Well done
  22. Well done! The Teeth of the Dog course is one of the best ocean courses I've ever played...glad you got out there!
  23. I agree with your opinion! Alan loves to publish click-bait and is always looking for a story to push him into the spotlight. At the end of the day gossip and scandals get more clicks and sell more magazines. I had the chance to meet Alan Shipnuck a few years ago when I was working at the top golf club in Shanghai, China. Alan came and played a round of golf and wrote a very backwards article portraying our local caddies in a negative light. He couldn't simply play the course and tell about what a nice experience it was to have a professional female caddy with him for the day. He felt he neede
  24. Hey MGS Members, I'm going to Anaheim, CA in a few weeks and would like to find the best public/resort course in the area that has the best short game facility. I'm going to be shooting some videos for an upcoming web project and basically need to find a facility where I can shoot some putting, chipping, and bunker golf lessons. I'm happy to pay to use the facility, but just wondering if anyone has any ideas on what courses I should start contacting? Thanks in advance! Cyrus
