  1. I recently switched from a hybrid to a driving iron. The reason I made the switch is the same reason that I began to use the hybrid. The high flight and workability of the hybrid was a tremendous strength at first. However, with the wind picking up now where I play I switched to the driving iron to keep it low and straight. Based on the merits however I would pick the hybrid all things being equal. It's easier to get the ball up, mishits aren't as punishing, there's a sense of confidence as well(even if theniron is better looking, and i don't have to worry so much about swing speed to get the ball in the air.
  2. I currently have a Garmin S20 as my primary golf watch and a Fénix 3 when I forget the S20. My GPS units have been invaluable to me so far, especially for myself who just started. Getting yardage is quick and easy. With the S20 I can change pin positions and get more accurate yardage but if I don't want to do that I get Front-Middle-Back if the green which is sufficient most days. I haven't lost GPS signal yet and it doubles as a scorecard which I love. The Garmin app has its downsides but it tracks strokes and club used along with yardage hit which is a plus. The one downside I have experienced is that when playing a course with a lot of levels the yardage isn't as accurate. Getting a handle on better distance with slope would be a great benefit. Otherwise thought the gps units are great and would wholeheartedly recommend them. They haven't hurt my game and have only helped. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. I got the email as well and I'm torn on the looks. I'm not sure yet whether I like them but i had the same opinion of the first M2 driver and it's been in my bag since I started playing a year ago. When picking new drivers the brand on the club has an effect and Titleist has the gravitas to elicit a ‘want it' reaction. But I have to remember that the way it makes me feel on the tee has a bigger impact than the brand or the look. If I feel confident I strike better, barring any mechanics issues. Long story short can't wait to try them out! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. From my experiences I think lessons first will go a long way towards understanding how we play on the course, with caveats. This was something I learned personally and my evidence is more anecdotal than scientific but I hope it helps. When I first started playing I took the advice of lessons lessons lessons seriously. So much so that I signed up for 6 lessons with a well known coach in the area. I drove about an hour every month to take a lesson, so that was 6 months straight of at least a lesson a month. If I could do it over again I would space them out more. The reason why I say that is because I didn't take enough time between lessons to really absorb what he was saying. I took thorough notes during the lessons and still have them now. What I've noticed is that all the advice and mechanic he tried to teach me took a long time to really hit me. Some of the things he critiques about my swing which seemed inconsequential at the time ended up being breakthroughs as I kept playing. I took my last lesson with him a year ago and just last month one of the things he told me clicked on my head and I've been playing a few strokes better ever since. Long story short, my advice is to take a lesson first, take great notes, ask all questions that come to your head no matter how basic you think, even record your swing with his advice if possible and then practice. Hit the range and try to apply some of the advice. Play as much as funds would allow and don't rush improvements. As soon as you feel you've taken the lesson seriously I would start thinking about going back along with your progress and the things you've learned along the way. Hope this helps. Cheers!
