  1. This is a prime example of "if you want something done right, do it yourself". However, this thread makes me wonder if it really would make any difference. Yes, the 1 degree open at impact will cause you to miss a 10' putt, but perhaps the grip that is not square could help some people bring the face square at impact. With all the different ways to grip and swing a putter, maybe grip angle is the next generation of putter fittings. Just a thought...
  2. Here are some rules I came up with for teeing it forward. I recommend using your best Jeff Foxworthy impression. If your boom stick results are more in line with that of a broom stick, ...you should tee it forward. If your GIR% is lower than your handicap, ...you should tee if forward. If you have to pull driver on a par 3 in order to "lay up", ...you should tee it forward. If your fairways missed is higher than your blood pressure, ...you should tee it forward. If you can throw your putter farther than you can hit a drive, ...you should tee it forward.

  5. It was a two-fingers of Hogback High Rye Bourbon kind of night for me. The weekend can’t get here quick enough. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  8. Brad / Colorado 16 No hybrid, 19 degree Titleist 980f 5w Needs to Fill the 210 - 220 gap and sound good doing it
  9. I have entered into that same debate recently. I currently have a big gap problem due to not hitting my 4i well. carry distances: 19 degree 5w - 230 22 degree 4i - 200 25 degree 5i - 197 So I can either get a wood, hybrid or utility iron to fill the gap, or just spend the time figuring out the 4i issue. Part of me wants a 7-8 wood just to see how it goes since I hit the 5w so well. It is my go-to club from most tee boxes when I must hit the fairway. (Note: I know that some people will comment that a 9w is the equivalent of a 4i but the number is irrelevant as long as it fits the gap.)
  10. My recommendation is to take advantage of both of those companies demo programs. Get them both at the same time and put them head to head. They both charge you $20 to demo 2 clubs. It would be $40 well spent. As for tweaking the angles I had the opposite miss than you, and would miss right. I was able to bring it back to center (most of the time) by raising my lie angle to 4 degrees upright. TXG had a great video recently on the impact of adjusting lie angles and how it changes other things like swing weight. i.e. flattening the lie increases swing weight and also effectively lengthens the club. So by going more upright it was good that I also had an extra 1/2" on my irons. I've linked the video if you are interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6a1Sr6gb98
  11. I use both. I have Golfshot GPS that helps me plan the hole by giving me options to hit the fat part of the fairway and know what I will be leaving myself into the green. I like to leave a full club in rather than deal with partial shots. Then I switch to the rangefinder to zero in on the pin for my second/third shot. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  12. In addition to the lie, there is most likely a difference in the shafts that could also impact the way you deliver the club face. The thickness and shape of the sole will mostly impact turf interaction. The v-sole on the Srixon should minimize digging. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  13. I didn’t know much about it but watched a few videos just now and heard enough. Many of their fundamentals are sound but anytime someone says to keep your left ear to the ground at impact, I am out... when your spine is in that extreme tilted position (lateral flexion) and you apply shear force it is a recipe for blowing out your back. Now this may not be one of the core concept but the instructor said it so it is a no from me. I had back surgery 15 years ago so I am extremely sensitive to poor spine health practices in golf. I want to keep playing for a long time. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  14. Just got a bottle of Dry Fly Triticale whiskey. For those that don’t know, triticale is a hybrid grain that takes the best of wheat and rye and puts it into one grain. I am really enjoying the little bite of the rye. A splash of water makes it a very enjoyable dram. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
