  1. Thanks jaskanski, I don’t know how I missed that, that’s good to know. Have you used them?
  2. Hi, even though the UK is in lockdown again () so no golf, I’m getting excited because I’m on the hunt for some new clubs in the near future. The full set - except, maybe, the putter. I’ve kept my current clubs for about 10 years and hope to get the same longevity out of the new set. So while it’s not money no object, I am willing to travel and pay (if needs be) for a quality custom fit. If it’s within a few hours travelling of me in North Lincolnshire that would be a bonus. But I may be prepared to go further afield, within England, for the right fitter. Has anyone got any
  3. So, today I got an email from the pro at my club - winter studio memberships available. That’s the indoor GC Quad launch monitor/simulator to you and me. On the one hand, great, thinks I. I’m going to do that and work on my game. Rapidly followed by: shute, does that mean the season is nearly over? Again! Oh well. I’ll keep working at it and maybe NEXT year I’ll get my handicap down... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. Hi, I matched the shaft exactly for the TrueFit. I got the distance increase (sometimes) that TrueFit advised. But I wasn’t accurate with it. Less accurate than my old Ping driver in fact. That’s why I decided to experiment with the Tensei Orange at 10g lighter than the recommended Tensei Blue. And it hasn’t worked. I’m still inaccurate with it no matter where I put the weights and with either shaft Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. Interesting [emoji848] Thank you 2 Questions: Was it purely an “anti-hook” measure for you? And by “the random low 80’s round has not happened” I presume that means that you shoot in the 70’s or better all the time now I have a spare 6 iron for my set - the result of an unseen stone in a fairway bunker. I think it’s time for a JumboMax grip on that one, and see how that goes. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. I wasn’t sure about the shaft and at a past fitting (for hybrids) a lighter shaft was the way to go (65g for the hybrid) So, as I used to have a 55g shaft in my Ping, I’ve got a 50g Tensei Orange Stiff in it to try. One round in and I’m optimistic. I really must get to the driving range and on a launch monitor though [emoji849] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Just a quick update [emoji3] Golf is back on the menu in England but with no practice area and social distancing. So that means that I’ve been able to get 5 rounds in but no practice. So I’ve probably hit my new toy about 40 times. I haven’t been able to get on a launch monitor, so have set up the driver lie angle, loft and moveable weights to my “best guess” And it seems to be working, more or less. I’ve gained distance - according to Arccos. Up from 252 yards smart distance with my Ping G series driver (which was fitted by my club pro when it came out in 2016) to 274 yards with the Mizu

  12. For the summer, on my push cart, I like a 14 way divider. I’m a bit forgetful ( wedge left at the previous green type thing) and like peace and quiet when I’m walking and to keep my clubs in good condition. I also I hate “club clatter” as I walk So the best bag I ever had was a Bennington Quiet Organiser. It had 9 spaces for the irons, a putter well and divided space for the woods. It was easy to see all your clubs, you could soon see if an iron was missing. I’ve not got one any more and this is making me nostalgic - maybe I’ll have to get one for my next bag [emoji848][emoji38] Sent f
  13. I agree Like someone earlier said, I’d keep phoning for a while, just in case. I’ve accidentally gone home with someone’s club before when I’ve picked it up on the course. I hope that’s all that’s happened And if they have nicked it, I hope all their rounds from now on are worse than the one you had there. Much worse! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. I love the blue of the ST 180, lovely club. Hope it goes well for you Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  16. Hi So I’ve taken the plunge and got myself a chipper to try to prop up my weak chipping game A Square Strike 45 degree has been chosen and put in the bag. But it needs a putting type action and I’m using my putting grip but it feels weird with the standard tour velvet style narrow (standard) grip on there. I use a SuperStroke type grip on my putter and wanted something similar on my Square Strike. But it had to be legal so no putter grips allowed. I settled on a JumboMax Wrap Small (not small - bigger than Jumbo - +1/4”) - and I like it for chipping. But here’s the thing, with a bi
  17. Sorry, but [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] I did wonder how they could quote, for example: +13 yards, 10% more accurate I mean, they take no data of your current setup or distance with it. So how can they know how much further you will hit their recommendation In your case, they didn’t. And I’m disappointed that they didn’t give you a refund.

  19. I’ll definitely let you know. In the meantime I’m doing swing speed training which might have an influence on the outcome (fingers crossed) But all I can do is test it when I get the chance and compare it to my old Ping G Series driver Really hoping that lockdown will be eased after this recently announced 3 weeks extension Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. Ironic story really. Here goes: I decided to take the plunge and use the MyGolfSpy truegolffit.com app to decide my new driver. I’d been tempted a few times and the emailsjust kept coming until I crumbled. That’s what I’m telling the Mrs anyway [emoji23] So - for my 7 handicap, 100 mph (ish) smooth swing I received a first recommendation of a Mizuno ST 190G with a Mitsubishi Tensei CK Blue 60 Stiff shaft. Second recommendation was a Cobra F9 Speedback with a Fujicura Atmos Blue TS 60 Stiff shaft. This was on 03/19/2020 I’d done this on a bit of a whim but did a little bit of research and

  23. Ping does indeed! I'm lucky that I live about 30 miles from Ping's UK Headquarters so going for a custom fitting is too easy
  24. Love the Stretch. Only real problem with it is that I hit it a bit too far so it's encroaching on driver distance! The S57's have been ITB for a looong time 😊 I really like them and don't find the modern equivalents to be a significant step up. I think they'll eventually have to be replaced as they'll have worn out! Mind you I do like the look of the new Ping i210 and i500 irons. They may tempt me to swap 😉
  25. The Stretch 3 is in the bag because I was looking for a club to use as an alternative off of the tee when I want more accuracy than the driver. I tried the standard 3 wood and didn't find it to my liking. I just couldn't hit it consistently. The Stretch 3 is a bit stronger at 13* (std loft w/o using the +/- 1* of the Ping tip adaptor) compared to 14.5* for the standard 3 wood. It also has a bigger head at 184cc volume compared to 169 for the standard 3 wood. I've got my Stretch 3 set up to 14* and like that bigger head to look down on. It may not sound like much but it makes a big diff
