  1. 1. Fritz Woodclig Lake, New Jersey 2. At home on smooth carpet and at the local PGA Superstore on their indoor putting green 3. Had a few over the years from a narrow 2 x 12 foot Strip with Cup to larger heavy and bulky foam mats with multiple cups. Both when rolled were no longer smooth rolling. Big disappointment.. 4. Fast Speed preferred
  2. #1 Posted 23 hours ago (6) TESTERS WANTED: BIRDIEBALL PUTTING MAT The biggest knock on artificial putting greens is that they don't roll like real putting greens. BirdieBall believes it's cracked the code. Using a proprietary foam material, it claimed status as MyGolfSpy's "Best Putting Mat 2020." Given the state of the world, it seems everyone is adding something to the "at home" practice arsenal, so here's your chance to keep sharp while locked down. This opportunity is available to current forum members residing in the US. To apply, reply to this thread with the following information: First Name and Location: Fritiz Woodcliff Lake, new Jersey How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter?

  3. Fritz: Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey I would love to have a quality indoor putting mat to practice at home with my collection of over 100 putters. they don't fit in my bag when I go to the course!!!
  4. This a a nice read, but the many options only confuse me....since it would be nice to have them all. I have heard many good things about Scratch wedges, however, I would like to see them in hand, rather than just in pictures. All forged clubs look great from the back, but until I can see the club in hand at address, It's unprobable that I would commit to three wedges for purchase.
  5. This is a very nice players bag...but the Cobra DWS seems out of characher compared to the rest of the set make up. Is the Cobra the tour model?
  6. Cobra has been making great looking clubs for years....going back to the Mild Steel Heads and the Norman Frind Irons. I would love to get my hands on aan MB/Pro-CB Combo Set, but we all have dreams. More recently, the SS Forges Darren Clark used was another nice set as well.
  7. My best bud still wishes he had his Maxfli VHL clubs....but unfortunately they were stolen along with his car. How he played with thos licorice red shafts I'll never know, but yes, the heads were nice. Old Dunlop clubs were a great profile.
  8. Are fakes from another country, like the USA, any better? Unless I'm missing something, is the offer for a single club or a set. it ses at the bottom of the article, in the future, they hope to offer sets of clubs.
  9. If the shot is not hit thin, or more appropriately, *bladed*, everyone who hits the ballon the face creates spin. How well someone does it obvioulsy has certain factors and variables attached, but with a sand wedge hit high from the fairway, the ball will spin back on the green with a softer ball made to spin. It's a harder ball that most high hadicappers use for durability and distance that does not allow the player to spin the ball. This is all said with the premise any golfer actually practices to try and spin the ball with a learned technique.
  10. In my opinion, most golfers can play forged bladse designns in the 7-PW clubs. The golfer may lose overall distance, but like suggested above, they may actually teach you to be a better ball striker in the end. I've only played forged blades for 30 years, with the exception of a two year break placking 1996 DCI Black Triangles. With the older lofts and shorter shafts, I was hitting my 7-iron 150 yards in my prime. Now I hit my TaylorMade 300 7-iron 170. I have a friend who is pushing 60 and he's a short hitter who's currrentl, and has been playing a set of TourStage blades for the past 4-5 years. He's lost some overall distance, but he's still as accurate as ever with them. As they say, it's the arrow, not the Indian. If you practice with purpose correctly and on a regular basis, you will hit the ball better.
  11. This really isn't a new concept nd it has been instituted in the past for decades. Ususally it for long putts and short putts. I cannot reacll any names at the moment, but variations of this could be someone like Notah Begay who puts from both sides. It may be with the same butter, but it could be argued he has a right handed and left handed model.
  12. I'll have to throw my vote in for the Burner TP model....I did not care for the R7 profile myself, but I thought the 2005 was solid as any set I have ever tried.....but they all are not any better than my Miura 300's.
  13. The rule is fine and it does not need to be changed, but...... If anything, the limit should be increased for the sake of golf manufacturers to sell more clubs and give the casual player more options. If I am walking a course, depending on its length, I can get away with 9-12 clubs without much concern of not being able to play any shot and I try to keep the bag as light as possible.....but whe I ride in a cart, I do not have the weight issue to deal with and I may at times bring the full bag plus extra clubs that I take to the range with me to practice.....extra clubs like wedges, hybrid and driver...lest not forget I will always carry two putters as well. Unless you are playing in a tournament, if you can play by the rules of golf in principle, as a gentleman, you should be able to declare the 14 clubs you intend to play with for a score....or for your nassau bet.
  14. I don't think it was related to any health concerns, rather it was deem a hazadrdous material by the EPA. Having a set of clubs made of BeCu did'nt harm anyone through contact. As for the softness issue, it's a myth. Acoording to the Solheims, the hardness factor of both BeCu and Stainless Steel used to make Ping Eye 2 clubs, are exactly the same. The difference is the sound the clubs maked when impact occurs. John Solheim says it is a more muted sound, which through testing, golfers equate as being softer translated through feel.
