  1. I have tried many different “golf” sunglasses lenses. The best that I have found for reading greens, and in general, are just a polarized brown lens you can get anywhere. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  3. 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

  5. Usually you can tell someone’s swing faults by looking at their glove.... Your old one has seen all of them. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  6. Brad / Colorado 16 No hybrid, 19 degree Titleist 980f 5w Needs to Fill the 210 - 220 gap and sound good doing it
  7. 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 g
  8. 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 th
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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 M
  12. 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
  13. I always pre-load a couple Aleve before a round. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  14. I totally agree. Each day I am looking for a specific taste so I rotate all the time but I also like to compare similar whisk(e)ys to one that I already had. This leads to an ever growing collection where finishing a bottle off is only when it becomes necessary to keep it from losing it’s “essence” for lack of a better word. My most recent acquisition was a gift from a client, a bottle of Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey. I had been curious about it for years and I was very pleasantly surprised. It earned a three day run... Somehow, free is always tastier.[emoji3] Sent from my iPad using MyGolfS
  15. Ram box set with stand bag. The whole set probably cost $150 at the time. I broke the heads off the 7i and 4i on the driving range within 6 months. I got my 2-wheel pull cart at a yard sale for $10. It has lasted for 11 years so I think I got my money’s worth on that one. Recently the plastic parts have started to give out so I am looking to upgrade this year. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  16. With only 7 clubs you were probably being more creative and just playing what you knew was possible rather than the 1 in 20 hero shots. I had back surgery 15 years ago and now when my back get tired toward the end of the round I start to play better because I focus more on my technique. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  17. I would love to be able to get a hold of a bottle of Blanton’s but it next to impossible to get in Colorado. The big liquor stores have a wait list (2 yrs minimum wait) and the smaller stores can’t even get it. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  18. I’m hoping my greatest shot is still ahead of me. But the feeling that brings me back every time is that pured iron into a green. To take from Tin Cup, it is like a tuning fork rings in your loins. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  19. I say no, unless there is someone by the cup and witnesses the miracle. I know that my eyesight is not good enough to say if it hit the cup or just got close to it. If you want to claim it in your group or friends, the more power to you, but it shouldn’t go on the plaque unless it drops or was seen up close. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  20. I’m a grounder. I’ve tried hovering but never stuck with it long enough to get used to it with anything other than the putter. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  21. When the snow is melted Colorado is still playing. Walking only, don’t show any earlier than 10 min before your tee time, pay online, don’t touch the flag stick or people. Foam was placed in the cup so your ball is easily grabbed. Facilities are closed, and no rakes or water provided. Basically, if you didn’t bring it, don’t touch it. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  23. Most of the ones already mentioned but add these: My only source for instruction is RotarySwing.com since it is a complete method an not a bunch of band-aid fixes. (I chased those for far too long) https://www.youtube.com/user/cquinton Golf Sidekick has great course management advice and promotes making golf fun. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaeGjmOiTxekbGUDPKhoU-A Golf VLOGS UK, great people that love golf.

  24. I use the Zero Friction gloves. I was surprised but one size truly does fit most hands. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  25. I’m at 7,000 ft above sea level so I like riding best. The courses that are currently open only allow walking so I walked 18 last week. It is terrible when you get to your ball and have to wait for your heart rate to come down a bit before taking your next shot. On the bright side, I lost three pounds during the round. I am just thankful that I can get out and play. I do agree that I am more focused when I walk though. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
