  1. Question... Has anyone ever added vinyl or paint or other material to enhance the alignment lines on a putter? I have a mallet with a single line and it is a bit narrow. I am thinking about adding something to provide better alignment.
  2. I am the original owner of a Nikent Pipe PP-01. It is old and tired but it still has a gravitational pull a bit greater than my Toulon Daytona
  3. I carry a 4 5 and 6. 6 is my 150 club and I hit it well. My 5 iron I only keep around out of loyalty. It is both my hole in one club (Par 3) and eagle club (Par 4). Other that those two times in the last 7 years, I don't hit it often or well. I hit the 4 iron more often and more consistently.
  4. So, here's one for the record books. I played this past weekend in 3 hours and 40 minutes. We rolled from the #9 green right into the waiting line of carts on the #10 tee. We had plenty of hydration and didn't need to hit the club house at the turn. And for the back 9 we still waited on 3 holes and a few sessions of " duck and cover" from the group behind us. Oh and we did miss the fairway on occasion and had to scour the tree line for the errant "fade". Not sure how this happened but I am willing to bet it is an isolated occurrence but I am not complaining
  5. Date 06/04/2023 Course Name Forrest Hill Golf Course Gross Score 95 Course Handicap 19 Gross Strokes over/under par 22 Net Score to Par 3 Net Score 76 Net Birdies or better 5 Longest Drive 258 I still need more practice. I had maybe three good drives, a couple of solid pars and one Chip in birdie.
  6. Date 05/28/2023 Course Name Chickasaw Golf Club Gross Score 99 Course Handicap 21 Gross Strokes over/under par 27 Net Score to Par 6 Net Score 78 Net Birdies or better 6 Longest Drive 246 I was able to play a local state park course that "used to be" a Bear Trace Course designed by Jack Nicholas. It closed several years ago and reopened. The layout is still the same as before. Fairways are ample but challenging. Layups are recommended unless you are a long hitter. All greens are elevated and protected. The best part of the day, my father and brother were my playing partners. *Question.. I am not sure I am calculating these net birdies correctly. Does anyone have a recommended site that can explain the process? * Thanks
  7. Date 05/22/2023 Course Name Lakeland Golf Club Gross Score 102 Course Handicap 18 Gross Strokes over/under par 31 Net Score to Par 13 Net Score 84 Net Birdies or better 0 Longest Drive 247 First round after a two year healing break and it was cart path only. Two holes with decent drives. Two irons shots to the front of the green,two chips and two one putts = 2 pars. Everything else about the round shall be erased from memory
  8. All great comments here.. I have gone covered or uncovered at various times. For some, I am sure it can be a form, function or even fashion statement. For me, an iron cover decision is functional to keep the bag chatter down or keep from losing a badge off the back of an iron. As I like to tell my buddies that play, "My sponsor dumped me so I am out of pocket for equipment". With the high cost of equipment I try to keep my gear cared for. Not that is helps residual value, but if I want to give my set to my son or brother when I upgrade, I would like the irons to be presentable at the very least. And if someone like my choice of iron covers, great. If they don't, that's great too, either way it's a conversation.
  9. To start, I really appreciate the time and effort the MGS staff dedicates to ball testing and data analysis. The results a couple of years ago prompted me to switch from Chromesoft to Maxfli CG. Reviewing the data, the performance for me was somewhat of a push. I hit balls in the water and the woods, so cost is a factor for me:) In the last two seasons, I have improved. I hit more fairways and a few more greens. This is most likely a result of practice and effort, not a switch in golf balls. If I can increase my swing speed and consistency, I might consider another switch.
  10. Hello does this have extra weights included as well? Thanks
  11. Thanks everyone. Very Much appreciated
  12. . Yup. I had a wedge that I did all of the work on by hand. I flattened the face with a file and regrooved manually etc. Afterwards I found a local shop and offered lunch or a reasonable fee to give the head a light blast after I taped it off really well. Then I started painting. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  14. I do like the coffee. This roast is smooth and stands on its own. It is my first purchase and I will definitely try other roasts Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. Well. I walked nine the past two weekends. Didn’t score too poorly but I must need new shoes ‘cause I feel like a three day old cake donut. ...About to fall apart. But on the bright side, this arrived on my doorstep. And it was worth the wait. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. Nice. Thanks. I will. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. I didn’t play enough golf But that’s ok, more important things were happening and they worked out [emoji120] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  18. Thanks. I will give them a try. Their social media posts are real pick me ups! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  19. I’m a little late to this thread but has anyone tried the Black Rifle brand? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. All these old blades look totally fantastic. I always wanted to hit my grandfathers Wilson Staff blades from the late 60’s but I was not allowed. I’m sure that is normal [emoji16]and I am certainly not the ball striker he was so it was totally fine. Skip ahead 35 or so years. I would never think of hitting his Staff’s although I am sure there is still magic left in them. But I did score a full set of 1972 Wilson Staff Button Backs with the woods. I have always planned to try a restore and maybe game them. I will keep an eye on this thread in case there is a classic bag challenge Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. I agree about keeping the courses open. I have only see the “pool noodle” method. The lifting gadget seems like it would be a back saver but I have noticed a couple of courses that take the flag out and drop it at night. It seems the disks or handles could damage the green.

  22. Play more, hit more fairways. But more importantly, play a few more rounds with my Dad and my Son.
