  1. Curious if anyone has had any difficulty connecting the Mevo+ FS Golf app on their iPhone with their Apple Watch. I used my Apple Watch repeatedly last summer. But for some reason it won’t connect and/or report shots this summer. The iPhone captures and reports every shot but nothing on the Watch. I’m wondering if the upgrade to the pro package may have broken that, or if I just have a unique problem between my iPhone and watch. Just curious if anyone else has had any experience or issues.

  3. So, I started using the third weight. Go 1, 2, 3; rather that 0, 1, 2. Coincidentally about the time I started with that, RypGolf released an updated set of protocols where he mentions using the third weight. I have to admit, I liked the previous protocol 4 better than the new one - I just can't seem to find a rhythm with the two step (back then forward) drill as I feel completely uncoordinated. I'm sort of at a plateau - which is still higher than when I started. At least I didn't lose speed over the winter. However, I am worried that swinging only the rypstick all winter has ingrained some nasty habits. Like a flying elbow, over the top, full on casting swing. I don't get any feedback that I'm doing that - I have to watch for it in the mirror. But I went to the range for the first time a week ago and every full swing with an iron or wedge was, shall we say, "hosel adjacent". Nothing like having everyone down the line look up to see who should have yelled "fore" as a ball come screaming by headed parallel to the tee line... The driver, ironically, was great. But full irons and wedges were real trouble. I don't blame Ryp for that problem, those mechanics are all on me. So I'm going to take a week or two break from the speed training (still sticking w her exercise routines) to get back into sync. Going to employe that SmartBall - maybe even swing the Rypstick with that though they won't be full swings. But need to get the body back into sync. Its a bit odd, in the videos he talks about swinging hard and feeling out of control - but I'm completely out of control now...
  4. Wish they had a black version... I think I'll be holding on to my Forged Tec Black one lengths until the grooves wear flat, but these would tempt me if in black.
  5. To cross pollinate a couple of threads... since you upgraded to the ProPack - did you notice any difference with you RCT balls in capturing spin rather than estimating? That thread you started didn't mention (I apologize if I missed it) if/when you upgraded to the ProPack. I thought for some reason it was all done pre-upgrade. Just curious if the upgrade does a better job with the RCT balls. Kinda suprised there hasn't been something put out by Flightscope on that.
  6. I've actually got what I call my Spring/Fall putter and my Summer putter... I deploy a Scotty Futura X with extra weight in the Spring/Summer because the greens are slower and I want to make sure the ball gets to the hole, and I use my Evenroll which is lighter during the summer when they are running fast. I find that works for me. But I'd love to hear from those who want a heavier putter for faster greens.
  7. I'll take mine w pecans...
  8. One other question - and I get it is not your go to radar - but using the Mevo+ for speed training do you have to set it behind your intended target line 8 feet like you typically do? Or can it be set right by where the ball would be? Thank!
  9. Doing a pre-season check in/check back... I've been doing their Rep exercises three mornings a week during the fall, and twice a week during this January-March season in my hotel. Still waiting to go outside. Been swinging the Rypstick twice a week Mon/Wed in the evening. Sarah says a day of rest is important in-between (thought I don't understand why). She Who Must Be Obeyed got me the radar sold by RypStick, and so I've been using that since January. Last season my only method for determining swing speed was using my Mevo+ when actually hitting a ball outside. Broken one mirror in my hotel room, and tore a groove in my birdie ball putting mat (failed experiment at holding my hands higher...). And I'm sure my hotel neighbors wonder what in the world is causing that swooshing noise in my room... Here is my question - anyone ever use the third weight? All the protocols call for 0, 1 or 2 - but when does someone actually use the third weight?
  10. Ok - you've had a month - long term report? Consistent, or at least a consistent difference? Ie for speed training are getting consistent results and you strive for improvement from that number? Second question - have you decided the pro pack is worth the $1k add on expense?
  11. Self motivation is a powerful thing... and getting back to golf is a powerful motivation. If I'm honest, and my wife doesn't read this blog so I can be, my biggest motivating factor to get the hip replacement is golf. If I quit golf I wouldn't have the pain... but also no life, so... So I'm sure my PT folks will see a lot of self motivation. What I'm hearing from you all is that even with aggressive PT I may not be swinging at full speed for four to six months, not four to six weeks...
  12. Thanks for sharing that. That is a longer recovery time than I was hoping for/expecting. I'm 54, regularly exercise, elliptical, yoga, walk when I'm golfing.... so I'd hope it would be a speedy recovery. But this is why I'm asking the question. When the doc looked at the x-ray he quickly said "well, that hip is shot" I've always known this was going to happen someday - but I'm not wanting to wait until I can't stand it anymore - better to do earlier when I'm younger and healthier I'd think. I'll have to look into these PRP injections.
  13. Hi all. The doctor told me that my hip is shot. Even I can see on the x-rays that its squared and not round... which explains sooo many things about why, where and when I hurt. So I'll be replacing my left (lead) hip sometime in 2022. Ideally I'd do it in January, but that just won't be possible for work reasons. So I'm trying to decide between the first week of May (right when my season starts hoping I don't loose too much of it) or waiting until October at the end of the season and just trying to make it through on celebrex and an injection or two... My questions for my fellow Spies is who has had this done, how long did it take you before you were back on the course and able to play, and what kind of changes (good or bad) did it have on your swing? Any personal stories to share would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  14. Saw the announcement - and I have no reason to doubt them…. But how can a camera 10 or so feet behind the ball at impact measure face to path and face to target? I hope it can/want it to. I’m sure someone (MGS moderators…) will find a way to do some comparisons.
  15. ahhh, but what is "fusion tracking" ? I got the same email, and saw the same tweets - but i don't know what that really means...
