  1. My course is open but unfortunately the Army kicked us retired folks off post for fear we will spread the virus. Ironically the day after I was told we could no longer access the golf course I received a request from the Army asking me to come out of retirement to help with the healthcare mission. Duty calls even for us old broken Soldiers. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. I went into this review with an open mind but if I’m honest a little skeptical. My thinking going in was most players are not good enough (nor am I) to benefit from the information provided. After almost 200 holes I have completely changed that thinking. For the novice golfer it truly helps as you develop a course management game philosophy. While you may not be able to hit 225 yard 5 irons into a island green within a foot of the cup the device does help you to select the best shot based on your tendencies. If you play a familiar course one could argue the pin, tees and your ball location changes every time out. This device will help you to really dial in your distances to known course characteristics. I play the same two courses on a regular basis and I can certainly apply a little “dead reckoning” in regards to distance to the flag, hazards and or my desired landing zone. However, the S.C. takes the guess work out and provides a topographical overview no laser range finder can compete with. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. Weather permitting I’ll continue to play. I’m not hunkering in unless the local government mandates a curfew. I’ve enjoyed having the more cautious higher risk folks staying away from the course. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  4. Awesome! And congrats! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. Let’em ride on. Individual carts are much better than two old dudes in a truck going together from ball to ball. “Let me sit here without a care in the world while you hit so we can ride together to my ball 15 feet away.” If you take that same group and buddy them up you will be waiting foreverrrrrrrrrr.....ever Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. Burning down your neighbors house doesn’t make your little dump look any better. Words matter and putting down the European tour doesn’t make the PGA look any better. Yelling in the back swing? When I played college basketball I never heard the crowd. In Major League Baseball players are asked to hit and field a ball moving 100 mph while folks yell all kinds of obscenities. I say let everyone yell then it won’t be an issue. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. I agree with you. I’m certainly surprised at how much I’ve enjoyed using this device. While it cannot execute a shot it certainly gives one the confidence to just swing away. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Played today in the worse conditions yet. The temps were in the low 40s but the wind was howling. The SkyCaddie proved once again to be a capable partner. I velcroed it to my cart which means a quick glance down was all I needed to confirm distance and club selection. My biggest gripe is really more self inflected than a design flaw. When I’m not deliberate when returning the S.C. to its perch or if I’m lazy and slip it in my pocket the extreme sensitivity of the screen tends to result in a little jumping around from my inadvertent bumping.

  9. After your initial question I did a little research of my own. I don’t think this would be of interest to me. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. I actually enjoy the challenges the winter conditions present. If the course is open then I’m usually up for the challenge. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  11. Coach K always says the name on the front of the jersey is much more important than the one on the back. Golf may not be a team sport but the lesson remains the same. Names and personalities will change as the sport lives on. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. Easy to make, low overhead, large profit margins, gullible consumers....... Upset over the slow green play of my weekend group I showed up with a scrub brush attached to a broom handle with duck tape. While I wasn’t the best on the greens that day I was far from the worst. For $399 I’ll make you one [emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. Cool, thanks Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. When I as leading large organizations one thing that frustrated me the most was when someone would say, “that won’t work we tried it before”. Conditions change all the time and so do the passions of those leading the organization. The PGA may have tried this before and maybe the timing just wasn’t right or maybe it just wasn’t executed correctly. Growing the game means garnering greater interest. I am confidant if executed correctly there will be loads of interest, attention, sponsorship and attendance. The waste management tournament is one of the most entertaining of the year. It might be the perfect location for a televised skills challenge. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  15. I was watching the NBA festivities last night. It’s been awhile sense I was interested in that type of thing but honestly it was a lot of fun. It made me wonder why the PGA hasn’t had a little fun with their normally stuffy format. Although a long drive and close to the pin would be staples I was thinking they could take a page out of the Big Break’s book and really have some fun with it. Do it at the end of the season inviting only the top 25 or so. All the money goes to charity! Would you watch? If so, what events would you like to see. Me? Par 4 speed challenge. Love to see Patrick Reid double timing down the fairway. Two guys tee off at the same time and away they go Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
