    Ping's new adjustable length putter

    I know this might be over simplifying things a bit but can you not just move your hands up and down the grip to change the length???? The added mechanism seems a little gimmicky to me. We golfers are much to smart for that! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. Contrary to popular belief you don’t just get the yips or shanks from some mythical anti-golf god. You are doing (or not doing) something mechanically that is causing your problem. To shoot an 80 you must have the ability and fundamental foundation to play good golf. I recommend a lesson or three. If lessons are not your cup of tee then a video posted here will illicit some valuable feedback. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Driving range wants and needs

    Do I buy anything? Not normally but having access to tees and gloves would be awesome. There is a driving range in San Antonio that has a full service maintenance shop. It’s been many years since I lived there but if memory serves me well it was a great side hustle received very well by the patrons. The owner of the range rented out the space and received a percentage of the income. He did the same with a couple teaching pros. They ran their business kind of like a Barbershop. It was a great business model for the owner. Lots of services, very little financial risk. - Good quality mats are a must - well maintained putting area - distance markers and targets - ball dispensing vending machines - lights for night practice - Grill and snack bar - Simulator Bay for rent and teaching. - Special Days and times for specific demographics (Thursday night ladies night and run beer specials for their wannabe coaches male friends and husbands). - Saturday morning first tee for kids. Run discounts and grill dogs for lunch. - design a cool/fun T shirt for sale in the pro shop at a reasonable price - coordinate demo days a plenty. Everyone loves a demo day. I’m sorry I probably could go on for hours [emoji851] Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    Piretti Putter feel

    Funny you should ask a question about the forgiveness of a the EVNROLL. Forgiveness is precisely the reason why I purchased it in the first place. I too had issues with consistently hitting the sweet spot on all my old putters. The Scotty and Ping punished me if I didn’t middle it exactly. I find the EVNROLL extremely consistent across the length of the face. The drawback? I used the toe of my previous putters to deaden really quick down hill puts. That technique doesn’t work as well (if at all) with the EVNROLL. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    Do you shape your shots?

    I have a very neutral shot shape. I can shape the ball when it’s needed to get around an obstacle. I don’t have enough control over distance and direction to try to shape a shot say right to left in order to reach a pin in the back left side of a green. Can I attempt it to varying levels of success? Absolutely but I’d rather just aim to the middle then rely on putting to get me home. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Rick Shiels YouTube Golf Open

    I’ve watched just about every YouTube golf video ever made. My attention span is short so I’m a made for YouTube viewer. A live 4 hour video? I’m sure I’d watch bits and pieces but I’d rather play than watch. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Piretti Putter feel

    I went from a Scotty to an EVNROLL. It took me a few rounds to adjust to the increased weight, larger grip and increased speed off the face. Once I zero’d everything in it really started to work for me. It swings very easy and balanced. The speed remains consistent across the entire club face and the ball begins rolling immediately after contact. I think in addition to strong fundamentals putting is equally reliant on trust and confidence. The EVNROLL builds both in spades. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Piretti Putter feel

    I used one last week. My friend and I switched up for the day. He rolled my EVNROLL while I rolled the Piretti. I gladly returned it to him after the round. He then subsequently returned it to the PGA superstore in exchange for an EVNROLL. It wasn’t bad and for the most part felt just like my Cleveland Huntington (which I like for $99) but for me the EVNROLL works much better. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    They are great. If you send them a message with the specifics of what you are looking for they will give you choices at different price points. I bought a driver shaft from them. They sent me a list and I researched each recommendation. In all cases they were spot on. Additionally if you review their EBay history you’ll see they do a lot of business and the positive reviews are impressive. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. For the most part the large majority of those who play golf regularly have or are well on their way to building a measured amount of financial freedom. We have discussed the rising cost of Golf on this forum many times and those discussion have led to some pretty heated exchanges of thoughts and ideas. There is always a contingent of folks who state Golf can be played on the cheap. I would argue the word cheap is relative and directly related to one’s level of disposable income. A soda is cheap if you have a $1 in your pocket. A very recent Army retiree, I joined my first Gym in 31 years last week. I was extremely surprised I could play basketball, racquetball, run, ride the bike, lift weights and swim all for $15 a month. Researching a Golf membership the best deal I could find was a group of 7 courses for $300 a year plus $39.00 each round. If I play just 4 times a month that comes out to about $181 a month for four rounds of Golf. The gym membership is unlimited access 7 days a week at no additional charge. When a Golf Course closes its because of one of two reason; the owners feel they can make more money in another market or the course is actually losing money. Nothing more than conjecture on my part but I would guess golf course closure is more related to losing money than it is to profit margins. Back to my original point......Golf takes money, time and “won’t to”. Often times you must have the first two to even get to the “want to”. As money and time become less available the “want to” never comes into sight. The last thing I’ll say is Golf is hard! Equipment might be better than its ever been but Golf is still crazy hard. For many folks it seems impossible and when measuring the cost to benefit ratio they just would rather join their local gym for $15 a month. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
