  1. David/Allen Park, MI IPhone 11 I will be testing it indoors. Yes, I will be Using a Net Yes
  2. Cobra F9 Speedback (9 degree) Mavrik 4 wood, 7 wood Mavrik irons (5-P) Vokey wedges (48, 52, 56, 60) MacGregor DCT Bobby Grace Putter I switched over to the Cobra driver this year from my Epic partly due to a half-off sale on the Cobra--figured I could give it a test for a good price. The Epic was a couple of years old and an upgrade from what preceded it, but it had some annoying aspects like sound and struggle with ball flight. No flaw in the Cobra, but I had a hard time settling into the right settings for it (loft, weights). I finally landed on 9 degrees and have f

  4. Dave/Allen Park, MI 3.5 Titleist Vokey I used to play Cleveland wedges before I won some free Vokeys, so I like Cleveland a lot. Specifically, I like what they have done with these wedges to bring consistency to the set of wedges. This is the next step in improving my scores, so I’d love to give this a run.
  5. Official end of season for GAM is October 31st with possible allowance for unseasonal warm periods. Since you’re in the North Pole of MI I’d think it might be worth moving that up a little!
  6. Any other MSG members here playing Belvedere in the GAM Senior Championship?
  7. David/Allen Park, MI/USA MacGregor DCT Sunset (Bobby Grace) I would love to check out the Anser 2. I prefer a blade putter and it’s design seems to fit my stroke very well. Has a great look to it. Would love to put it to the test on my indoor putting range and during the beautiful fall golf season in Michigan!
  8. Down to 1 more to go for the second loop through this season. Nice smooth 8 iron to just below the hole on a 168 yard par three then rolled in. Last one is a challenging par 3 that plays tough. Hopefully I can do it before the snow flies.
  9. Two more to go to complete the second lap. Almost aced #15 with an 8 iron from 168 yards. Ties the closest I’ve ever had to an ace. Someday.
  10. On my way through this a second time and have been stalled for a couple of weeks. Finally got #4 this morning, so I have three holes left—all par 3s so that may say something about my game. I’ve been playing the back tees a lot too, so that has made these par 3s (7, 13, 15) more challenging. #13 is 222 to the center of the green if they play the normal back tees. Hard to get birdie putts from there!
  11. Anyone know anything about this? They just tweeted out that it coming soon...
  12. I should have thought of this sooner, but an alternative, and better, theory is that the problem is not the ball, but a change I had made on my driver. I recently went to 10 degree draw on my Cobra Speedking and still had the weights set for high spin. I had noticed that my ball was descending pretty sharply—sometimes backing up or bouncing sideways. Not being too bright, I was just thinking it was due to the recent rain and didn’t think about shifting the weights. Well, not surprisingly, once I shifted the weights to low spin and flattened out the descent of my drives, the ball is staying cle
  13. Just for fun I started tracking it to see if I could complete the challenge a second time this summer. Only five more holes to go to complete a second loop of birdies. Three of the five left are par 3s and I have already picked off the three holes that took the longest the first time through, so I’m hopeful. For perspective on my game right now, I started recording stats via the GHIN app a bit ago. Over 21 rounds, 6% of my holes are birdies, so I’m cranking them out at a pretty high rate (for me). The down side, 8% of my holes are double bogeys. Without those birdies I’d be toast! As Jon
