  1. Yeah I saw an article on that the other day. I suspect it's probably a tour prototype or tour spec of sorts as it looks quite different to the new Gen5 drivers that just launched. But the Gen4 was at a much better price point so I ended up going with it. Was actually cheaper than previous year models from the big OEMs. MG3 won the Most Wanted Wedge last year so can't go too wrong with that. I'll be finishing out my wedges with 2 more MG3s with the TW grind 56° (I'll be getting it 1° strong 55) and 60° wedges. I'll have to wait a little while on those as I'd like to revamp the putter first, then hybrids and fairways as I do have some decent high lofted wedges already.
  2. I haven't been around in a while but figured an update thread as I build my new bag would be a decent way to make a comeback. I haven't really updated my bag in awhile and now have the opportunity to make some changes. I'll be updating it over the next year until I have it set the way I'd like it. I have not gotten fit for any of the new clubs as right now it's not a luxury I can afford but I am a big proponent of custom fitting. I have selected heads that offer forgiveness and some adjustability where needed while also providing the aesthetics that I like to see near the ball. I have selected shafts that I feel will work the best for my swing based on the research I've done. To date I have ordered a new driver, which I have received already (see pictures) and ordered new irons and wedges. I will be finishing out the bag with a new putter, 2 more wedges, 2 hybrids, and a fairway over the next few months to a year. My new driver (pictures included): PXG 0811XF Gen4 Loft - 10.5° Length - 45" Shaft - Mitsubishi Diamana S+ 60g R Grip - PXG Z5 Black Midsize My new irons: PXG 0311T Gen3 (5 - 9) Loft - Stock on 5 - 8, 1° strong on 9 Length - +0.5" Shaft - Mitsubishi MMT 70g R Grip - GolfPride Tour Velvet Midsize My new wedges: TaylorMade MG3 (PW & GW) Loft - 45° PW (1° Strong) & 50° GW (Stock) Length - +0.5" Shaft - Mitsubishi MMT 70g R Grip - GolfPride Tour Velvet Midsize Will post pics of the new irons and wedges when they arrive.
  3. Oof, not been around much lately, so just seeing this now. Thanks very much everyone!
  4. As far as I'm aware, based on the explanation that followed the situation that happened at the RBC Heritage, Si Woo Kim would not have been penalized for striking a moving ball had he putted the ball after his 10 seconds had elapsed, so the overall result would have been the same either way. Once the 10 seconds has elapsed after taking a reasonable amount of time to reach the ball, even if the ball is oscillating in place, it's deemed to no longer be moving and you carry on.
  5. What about if your ball comes to rest on the pelt of grass from a divot that's been recently replaced in the divot? The ball's not in a depression but it's still in a divot. By your rule, there's no relief allowed for that.

  8. To get the most out of it, you need a radar. You input your speeds in the app as you go through a baseline session so that the algorithm can develop a training protocol tailored to you to get the most optimal speed gains. Continuing to add your speeds in as you go will help the algorithm continue to develop the training protocol for the best speed gains. Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  10. His face is 2.5° closed to a 7° in to out path. That's a recipe for slinging draws/rope hooks. Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  11. That is impressive customer service for sure. Did that get sorted out and what did Sasho have to tell you about it? Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. Yeah, I'd say nearly 3300 spin is definitely costing you at least 10 yards of carry at 163 mph ball speed. I may be wrong but I believe the 915 series of Titleist drivers were very high spinning compared to their competitors, so that's not helping you very much for distance. The ball you play may also be factoring as well, but it's likely your driver that's a big issue. Your launch is pretty good for your ball speed but the spin is definitely too high. I think from a more optimal perspective, at 163 ball speed, 2300 to 2500 spin is probably where you want to be, so a new driver fitting might be your best bet. And maybe a few lessons to rein your path in. 7° in to out is pretty on the extreme side. Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. You are arguing a completely different point. None of what I said about turning the grip strictly relates to armlock putting. There's nothing stopping a player using a more traditional putting stroke from turning their grip either for better alignment. Armlocking in and of itself doesn't improve alignment, and I've never said that it does, so I really don't know why you're trying to argue me on that when it's irrelevant to what I was talking about, which was solely the turning of the grip for better alignment.

  14. In regards to people claiming rotating the grip so a flat portion is flush with the inside of the forearm is cheating, it is a question of it being an alignment aid. I don't agree that armlock is anchoring either. Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  15. That's strange. Are you catching it low on the face too? As others have mentioned, it could be an issue with Trackman indoors. If you can get on Trackman outdoors or on a GC Quad indoors, might be a good idea to get a more accurate picture of your spin rate. 3000-3500 spin at 2-3° up doesn't really make much sense, especially with an 8.5° driver so I don't think you're getting accurate spin numbers unfortunately.
