    The bag is finally complete!

    Naturally, you have to let them cool down after smoking them off the fairway.

    What equipment are you thinking about?

    Got to hit a friends Ben Hogan PTX irons over the weekend. They felt and look great. Making me reconsider the project of building my own irons this year.
  4. If anyone has some KBS C Taper Lite X shafts they're willing to part with hit me up. In the aftermath of a fitting I'm slowly working on my first build for a set of irons. 4-PW Either .355 or .370 tip works.
  5. Not exactly a training aid, but in looking for a head cover I enjoyed this one:

    Would you be interested in MGS Virtual Golf League

    Definitely interested. Great idea and thank you for putting in the legwork to get this started! Happy to help if you need extra hands for anything.

    MGS Forum Badge Catalog

    Thank you! Perhaps I misunderstood the purpose of the badge, I broke 100 last year and was late to request the badge once they were created. Are they intended for new accomplishments? And that is sound advice, thank you. Limiting disaster holes is the crux of scoring well for me. It's not unusual for my first 6 holes to go, Bogey, Par, Par, +4, birdie, +4.

    MGS Forum Badge Catalog

    Love the way badges evolved and find themselves now. I do miss the Special badge a bit though... May I please have the broke 100 badge. Hoping it's only temporary as my goal is to get a round(s) in the 80's this year

    How do you measure a successful score?

    I'm happy with my play if I'm striking the ball well, specifically my irons. A pure iron shot just makes me smile. Any day on the course is a good one. I certainly have moments of frustration, but every outing is a net positive. If that ever stops being the case I'd likely have to take a break and reassess what I want to get out of that time.

    TaylorMade M5 & M6 Driver Thread

    Fair I was using their material more than the hashtag or tagline. The tagline is definitely misleading, and incorrect from the single sample I've seen. Reading the rest they never actually say they're faster. They claim more consistently getting as close to the limit as they can and expanding the area of the face that hugs that limit. (I pulled a section out below) It's not entirely fair to compare clubs made under different testing specifications, but that's all we can do in this case. The follow up question I'd have is - would you rather have the faster club or the club that meets the new criteria? Admittedly, I haven't followed the equipment guideline changes close enough to fully understand what has changed and how that impacts which clubs are still legal.

    I told myself I'd be avoiding this thread for the winter. Your pictures reminded me why. Looks beautiful, consider me jealous

    TaylorMade M5 & M6 Driver Thread

    I just finished watching Rick's review and got a kick out of this. The only question I'd raise is - is it faster on off center hits than previous versions? Rick is likely striking the ball fairly close to the sweet spot, so I take his review as "Well struck balls are no different". Part of the "faster" claim they made is the face is thinner all the way across, and the "variable resin" helps bring it back into spec. Let me get in there and compare drivers hit off the toe... As for looks - I'm a fan of the matte finish on the crown, but the bottom looks like a hot mess.

    SNELL MTB on sale!

    it's a solid deal, if I played Snell I'd have taken advantage. Thank you for sharing sir

    Indoor Golf in Rhode Island

    Simulator for playing rounds (possibly with friends) - a lot of fun. Gets some swings in when the weather doesn't permit you to do it outside. There is no real punishment for mishits, so enjoy your perfect lies and test out being more aggressive with course management. I'd encourage you to explore the full course list. Sure, playing the greats is fun, but there are some completely made up courses that are great too. Also, TXG did a video or two about it, but for kicks and giggles you can set up the same conditions as some of the more famous shots from the greats and give it a go. After watching the video I was able to confirm I'm not Tiger and should continue to avoid this sort of shot Hitting bays for practice - The place I use has cameras set up facing you and from behind the ball down the line. As someone who had a lot to work on when I started in an indoor bay, I've made more progress on my swing here than anywhere else. The ability to review from both angles was HUGE in aligning what I wanted to happen vs how I thought the swing felt. It's still hitting off mats, but when grass isn't an option at all it'll do the trick.

    Is golf your main hobby, or just one of many?

    Family, work and Golf. In that order I do other things to relax when I get smaller windows of time, but as of this year I've really made an effort to narrow my efforts (and expenses) to places I want to make the most progress.
  17. I dislike that the "Pre-Order Now" button will only add you to their email distribution list. No actual pre-ordering to be had. Not that I would pre-order at all, but was curious if they had pricing up.

    NFL thread! What are you thinking?

    This rings true. I've almost turned off my phone the past two Sundays with the tsunami of people gloating. Not that their team won, just that the Patriots lost and played like crap. Steelers and Pats both wanted to lose yesterday. Each year between rule changes and shoddy officiating I enjoy the NFL less. I no longer watch more than my teams game if I'm at home, and even that is a delayed start with the fast forward button at the ready (thank you DVR). It's also frustrating because the optics from the outside are that the NFL refuses to invest in improving the issue. My guess is they view it as supporting the "More offense, more ratings" philosophy...

    Miura The Perfect Club

    I actually watched this yesterday without seeing your thread. I've never hit a Miura, but certainly want to try after this video. They seem so humble about what they've achieved. They also seem to have only strengthened their resolve to make the perfect clubs, it's awesome to watch.

    Are you a no thought swinger of the club?

    If I am practicing something specific, I absolutely think about it through the whole swing. I'm trying to change what happens when I swing without thinking, or change what that swing should fee like. At the end of practice, or once I start playing, I usually go on feel. A practice swing to make sure it feels right, then hit it while trying to think as little as possible.

    New Cobra King Forged Irons

    Thanks for posting the follow up pictures. Keep us posted on how they perform for you.

    New Cobra King Forged Irons

    Gorgeous looking set, I love the look of all black for both shaft & head. Excited for you that it sounds like you were throwing darts your first round out with them. Thanks for sharing. As you commented, the lower CBs aren't usually seen and these "have a small profile, both in the top line and in the heel-to-toe length" - care to share a picture of a low iron at address? Possibly compared to your Pings (or whichever set these replaced)??

    New Taylormade Drivers 2019

    All I could think was "Man, I bet that'd get wild when I miss and drive from a screw" If it is new method to move CG, I'd like to see how effective it is or if it's just giving a new look to existing tech. If the latter, how is it better or worse at moving CG than sliding weights we have?

    Visible tech

    I think it definitely helps market clubs to the crowd that will buy off the shelf. An example would be my uncle - he buys a new driver roughly every 2 years. Walks into a big brand store and buys whatever he thinks will help him the most. Outside of asking for a "stiff shaft" , he's going to buy whatever strikes him as the coolest or newest looking tech. Seeing that tech makes it more tangible for him and he can show it off when he next hits the course. Personally, while I certainly have an aesthetic preference, club choice is going to be the best performer within my budget regardless of where the tech is located. PS: I'd like to be a tester too . Would putting up an MGS sign in my office qualify as the Boston branch for testing?
