  1. My "winter" hobby aside from chipping and putting in the basement is woodworking. I took a chair apart that was destin for the trash, salavaged some wood for a wall clock with a golf theme. I modified the pattern slightly to reflect my personal interest in golf Chris
  2. Now that's creative thinking. Codous to you Chris
  3. Well, that makes sense, thanks.... I just couldn't figure why it would make a difference.
  4. I've been told that a draw will have a better roll out than a fade. With this crap for weather here in Michigan I've been doing some thinking on the draw vs Fade. If my thinking is right it has to do with spin. The ball needs to have a particular spin to move right to left and vice versa. So for a right handed person a draw moves right to left, how is that ball spin different if me as a lefty hits a fade, will that not have the same roll out as a right hitting a draw? What am I missing? Chris
  5. Welcome SOPHIAK, this is the place to get your fill of anything golf related. Even if you didn't know you needed it !!! Chris
  6. The reason big bands don't exist any more is money, plus the fact that all anybody wants these days is electrified stuff, that is what makes the money. I was a music major in college, from there I was a Musician in the Navy then a Musician at Disney and I can tell you that you cant make a living playing horn which is why I left it way back in 95. I do still tinker with music by playing bluegrass banjo, but that's more a hobby after golf !!!!!
  7. I'm lucky in the target department. When the weather cooperates the range I use in Midland Michigan has probably 20+ 4x8 plywood "targets" which are sponsored by various business's from town. He has them at various ranges, just pull out a range finder and pick one and let loose. It makes an impressive"thump" when you hit one and everyone looks to see who did it. Chris

    Made where?

    My reason for the post is the box of Bridgestone TourB XS I bought, the side panel says "Made in Japan" That got me to wondering if there were any balls made in America Chris

    Made where?

    This maybe, well, most likely is a dumb question but I got to wondering today if there are any golf balls made in America? From what I've been able to find on my own that answer is no. Chris
  10. Greetings from the sunrise side of Michigan. Hoping to get to your side this season, Arcadia Bluffs is on my list for April, weather permitting !!!! Welcome... Chris
  11. Ideal would be a short game area with a trap or 2 and a large, multi level green to chip to. And a separate putting green. Chris
  12. For me there are 2. "Gain yards off the tee" and " No more chunked shots around the green with this blah, blah wedge" Chris
  13. Thanks all, I feel much better now, I was hoping that that was all it was. Wasn't looking forward to sending the unit in, my plan is to head to the range Tuesday to hit real balls using the LM. Chris
  14. I've read thru most everything I could find here on MGS but still have a question. My wife got me this unit for Christmas, the weather hit 40 degrees here in my part of Michigan today so I took it outside to give it a go. First with my 4H, I was rather surprised when it said I only carries 50 yards....."REALLY !!!!" a few shots later still 50 yards. So I got out my driver, according to the SC200 I hit my driver 130 yards "I DON"T THINK SO!!!" I know from the sim I've hit on my driver head speed is 95 and I'm in the neighborhood of 250. Another swing with my driver and a club head speed of 55 mph. On to my 7 iron, I know that a full swing will get 150 yards. First swing "65 yards"..... second swing..."58 yards".... I was hitting foam balls, so my question is do I need to hit real golf balls? Has any of ya'll using this unit experienced this problem? I did email the company, still waiting on a response. Thanks, Chris
