  1. Mine went from 0 to +1.2. I don’t play 18 hole rounds to really normalize my handicap. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. This is precisely why I take my body guards with me everywhere I go. Mr Smith and Mr Wesson always keep me out of trouble. They are also pretty good at solving slow plays issues :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. Through my many travels it seems the local groups always have the preferred Tee Times at just about every course. The pro shop is usually a great source for points of contact for these groups schedule 6 months to a year out. New blood seems to always be welcome. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. When MGS asked for volunteers to test the SC I jumped on it because I’ve always been a pace count type of guy. I felt it would truly be an unbiased test from my perspective. Yesterday I opened the box and immediately headed out to play nine. I didn’t read the instructions or watch the manufacturers video. I just hit the on button and away I went. I was surprised at the ease of use and how clear the screen was even in direct sunshine. I especially enjoyed how quickly distances updated. Obviously the full review will be much more detailed but out the gate it impressed. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. Why do you need Nike when Foot joy sells golf shoes too? The answer is one size doesn’t fit all. What I hope to provide is a comprehensive review that will help the reader make an informed decision. An example of why the SC over my smart phone app is graphic display and durability. I use 3.0 reading glasses. I cannot read my smart phone without them. As a matter of fact I can’t read a Laser without them either. I used the SC yesterday and found the screen to be very clear without my glasses. I hate taking them on and off during a round of Golf so for me the SC is a much better fit. The durability of the S.C. far exceeds that of any smart phone. A new iPhone 11 costs about a grand so exposing it to the elements is not the smartest move in the world.
  6. There are a number of ways to test accuracy. Playing on a familiar golf course helps. I walk and my gate and pace count is usually dead on the money.
  7. Wialalea Country Club in Honolulu is very exclusive as well. They are the host of this week’s Sony Open. I talked about playing there with friends and strangers I met on the municipals. It took a while but I finally met someone who knew someone who new someone. After months I finally received an invitation. One round as a guest turned into a bimonthly outing.

  8. A detailed plan is so much more effective than a resolution. You don’t plan to fail, you fail to plan! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. My wife and I agreed to not exchange gifts this year so I was surprised to find an oversized box under the tree. She smiled like a cheese rat as I tore through the beautiful packaging. I was shocked to find an empty box. I asked what the F??? Her response, “it’s a mulligan” uttered as she wipes the tears of laughter from her eyes. Those tears quickly dried when I responded’ “that’s ok I’m sure my girlfriend bought me something nice’. It was a quiet Christmas morning [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. I feel ya. Last year I played the Robert Trent Jones Trail in late March. 14 rounds of golf in 16 days. I schedule early tee times to beat the crowds. The front 9s were punishing. Push ups, jumping jacks, running in place on the tee box just to make it bearable. Regular golf often turned into speed golf. Stick and move, move, move. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I never hit into any one....... ever. If the group in front of me is hitting reasonably close to my landing zone I always wait regardless of how slow they are. It is always best to error on the side of caution. 1. I’ve never called the pro shop for any reason. 2. I’ll skip a hole then go back or play another hole twice. 3. Pace of play is the responsibility of all parties fast and slow. If I can I try to give slow groups some space by practicing a few putts or chips between holes. 4. I’ve found slow groups to not really be that slow it’s usually me moving to dang fast. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  12. Tim - South Carolina Great opportunity and I’ve not been prejudiced by any other device. I’m still an old school “dead reckoning” guy using only my step count and course markers. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. I own a townhome in Augusta and rent it out for the Masters. During that period I basically make my entire years mortgage. While a LPGA event is certainly not the masters I would still give it a try. I recommend VRBO and or AirBnB. Don’t let the bad news stories scare you. There are ways to eliminate risk I only rent to folks who are frequent flyers and have outstanding reviews. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
