  1. When I originally posted in this thread a few weeks ago it reminded me it was time to regrip my irons for 2019. The whole process took less than an hour and they look great using the tape/solvent method I’ve used before. Also thought I’d try blowing on the grip to my new Ping Sigma G Kushin putter. It was a whole lot easier than I ever imagined. I’m still unsure about blowing on irons/woods. Afraid I might lose the club at impact. Lol but for putters it’s perfect.

  2. Daniel/Tennessee Ping Sigma G Kushin (Straight) 34.5" "The most PURE putter I've ever hit a ball with." (my previous putter was a Mizuno Bettinardi BC5)
  3. I'll echo what the BridieBall putting green owners have said. I bought a "Like New" used one on eBay and love the roll. It feels like a real putting green surface unlike a lot of previous greens I've used. I will say unrolling the green for the first time was extremely unimpressive. It's literally a foam surface that feels and looks super cheap, until you start rolling putts. I don't use the inserts in the cup so the ball doesn't always stop in the cup but that's never been a big deal since, I know I made the putt and I can really practice controlling speed.
  4. 1. Your first name and home state or province. -US and Canada eligible Daniel/Tennessee 2. Your current handicap and driver swing speed 6.6/115 mph 3. Your current driver PING G400 LST 8* 4. List whether you would like to review the Epic Flash or Epic Flash Sub Zero Epic Flash Sub Zero
  5. Can someone explain why Davis Love III has a green check this week but wasn't in the field? I guess I should have doubled checked his status but its got to be a Fantrax bug right?
  6. I think at my last lesson my Trackman swing speed was about 98-100 mph with the 6 iron but I don't carry it near as far as some of the rest of you in that range.
  7. 1. Daniel, Tennessee 2. 6.6, 115mph 3. Ping G400 LST set to 8 degrees X stiff shaft 4. G410 Plus Thanks for the opportunity! Sent from my Nexus 7 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. Definitely DIY. I'm with @SteddyGolf once you do it once you'll be embarrassed to pay someone. The steps are super easy and doesn't require a lot of different tools. I've bought most my stuff from eBay but you basically need a utility knife (hooked blade preferably), vice with rubber shaft holder and new grips/grip tape. I'll post some Amazon links just so you know what to look for. https://www.amazon.com/Wedge-Guys-Complete-Regripping-Clubs/dp/B00SRGJ53W/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=golf+grip+tape&qid=1551098217&s=gateway&sr=8-5 https://www.amazon.com/Jewel-Hooked-Cutting-Sheffield-England/dp/B00EKKBRZI/ref=sr_1_5?crid=34MVFUDBUZ403&keywords=hooked+blade+utility+knife&qid=1551098253&s=gateway&sprefix=hooked+blade+%2Caps%2C205&sr=8-5 Also, I've used Mineral Spirits the last few times instead of Grip Solvent. Its cheaper but has a stronger smell during installation. Hope this helps!

  11. I'm betting on JT again this week too. He's been so close the last couple times and weather has screwed him on Sunday's at WMO and Genesis. Whats the odds Phil got PED tested this week after that pic? Never fails... Random PED testing.. isn't' random...
  12. Yeah I'm not a big Rahm fan. He seems like Sergio on roids and that includes driving distance and roid rage... He's insanely talented but I don't like the childish antics. Bryson is on fire but in this field I'm not sure I see him coming out on top... even if the Air Density is constant...
  13. Bubba and DJ are great picks but I'm going with JT this week. His irons have been on point and the greens at Rivera are some of the toughest to hit on tour.... Rooting again for Stallings! Great finish last week and solid showing here last year. Praying the Air Density is variable so DeChambeau's yardage calcuations are off...
  14. I joined a MGS forums a few months ago and never created a introduction thread so here's a great chance. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I've been playing since I was 7, so 28 years. I'm currently a 7.0 handicap but I'm working hard to get it under 5.0 at least that's my goal for 2019. What do you love about golf? The competition with yourself and others. The parallels to golf and life, example good shots produce bad lies sometimes and its how you deal with them that shows your character and resolve. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? The reviews are awesome and insanely informative. The Forum seems filled with great people as well. I don't think I know any in real life. Where are you from? What is your home course? Crossville, TN, The Golf Capital of TN is our motto. Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountian is where I play most of my rounds. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best things would be some of the great local courses I have to play on. Worst is probably not having a ton of people to play with regularly but I'm always working to fix that. What do you do for a living? Professional Civil Engineer working for State Transportation Dept. How’d you pick your user name? Nickname from College. Played baseball and apparently my teammates were impressed by my ability to do dips...
  15. I made two purchases in 2018 due in part to the MSG reviews. The first was a PING G400 LST. My local teaching pro is a PING fitter and MGS reviews led me to upgrade from my Taylormade SLDR. I've played about 10 rounds with the new driver and to say I'm impressed is an understatement. It might be the best upgrade I've ever made in my golf bag. Its so easy to control and mishits are still on the board. Probably helped that he fit the correct shaft, stiffness and loft but still it's a huge upgrade. The second was a Tommy Armour Impact Series No. 3. After seeing the positive MGS reviews and testing a Ping Tyne (similar head shape) I found a decent deal on eBay. Put on a new grip and lengthened it a couple inches. I've used it a lot on my birdieball putting green and played couple rounds with it. I'll have to say I'm slightly disappointed with it on the course. It rolls great on the putting green but I had some issues with distance control on long putts and accuracy on short putts. Made me miss my Bettinardi. I can still see how the club can be highly rated, it might just not fit my putting stroke (I think my tempo may be a touch quick for a full mallet putter).
  16. The "Great One" is Wayne Gretzky. His Pro-am partner.
  17. You spit your dip into the cup.... talking to you Sergio...
  18. Probably playing some Gimmie Golf... made me think of this classic... https://adland.tv/adnews/michelob-light-gimme-1996-030-usa Yes. I think those scenarios make a lot of sense to supplement the current courses fleet with a few single rider carts. I at least think that would get them some traction and then let consumers(golfers/courses) decide if they would be a staple and whats next.
  19. Right. My only point would be the course needs to make more money switching to single carts and I could see them doing it switching "IF" they could get 300 golfers on the course instead of 200 on peak days for example.
  20. Did they even bother to stop the carts to swing? I'm just thinking if its drastically quicker to play with 4 single rider carts it might be profitable for certain courses to have them in the fleet so they can get more people on the course. That way its not just a convenience for the golfer (2-3 hour round) but its also advantageous for the course to get more people on the course on peak days. If nothing else book the tee times where the earlier guys are guaranteed a quicker pace of play with the single carts and as the day goes on a course could work the slower double person carts since its almost guaranteed to be a longer round later into the morning.
  21. Completely agree. Most people who walk are usually better and quicker players. I would really like to see how much quicker a round would be with 4 carts instead of 2. I also think it would depend on skill level greatly. 4 single digit guys might shave off an hour or more but four 20+ handicap guys might not save half that. Personally I think the two best ways to improve pace of play is to improve the average golfers score and play “ready golf”. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. Got to go with DJ. He just obliterated the euros in Saudi Arabia, plus he's playing with the "great one" so some of that greatness is sure to rub off. I do like Day and Spieth here too! It's a good field to be sure. I will be rooting hard for Stallings too, he's played well here in the past couple years and is a former TTU alumni!
  23. I just played yesterday cart path only and had the same thought. Single carts wouldn't speed up the pace and as you say could lengthen the time.
  24. https://mygolfspy.com/the-two-person-golf-cart-needs-to-die/ I have seen this topic on MGS a lot in the past couple weeks and there is already a ton of comments on the blog. I don't see courses switching to full fleets of single rider carts unless there is a profit advantage. Perhaps shortening the rounds can get more people on the course and raise revenue. I could see courses purchasing/leasing a handful of these type carts for singles, threesomes and millennial golfers. Has MGS tested how much quicker a foursome with their own carts would be? I'd really like to see the data on how much quicker 4 carts vs 2 carts would make a foursome. Maybe run the numbers and see how many more golfers a course could get though in a day if all the rounds were shorter. Thoughts?
  25. Congrats to the winners! I'm still trying to figure out how that ball landed in the cup on the ceiling fan. All of those shots took a ton of hard work!
