  1. Am wondering if the magic sauce is the swing weight irrespective of the flex? Anyone tried a regular or stiff with D0 swing weight?
  2. Had the G15. Currently have JPX921 HMP that got fit for. The extra offset of the G15 is great if you miss right a lot, but I found I had to hold off release to avoid big left misses so ended up right miss as well. YMMV
  3. While the Supercharged didn’t work for me, I started to think slow in the first transition move and have found much better strike and launch with my own gamer. Just need to fix an open clubface
  4. Can’t wait to hear you smash your personal best. What changed that got you the extra yards? Smash factor, launch or spin?
  5. The Supercharged is getting returned. I still replicated my strike pattern (toe side and low on the face). I seem to remember one of the TXG reviews that felt the Autoflex worked best for those who generally find middle of clubface, but needed more launch and ball speed. For those that the O-PH is working for, did you already have generally center strikes?
  6. Ok you guys gonna get me in trouble. I ordered a PLB Supercharged. Thinking the counter balance may help get the swing weight without having to change the back weight.
  7. I bought a TS2 with Kuro Kage 50 g stiff earlier this year to replicate at magical fitting couple years with that driver. Usually a serious low ball hitter, was playing the G400, the True Spec guy put the TS2 with a Fubuki shaft and I was able to apex over the tree line and 20 yards further. I’m wondering if he put a much softer shaft in now. Previous shaft was NVS Orange 65 g stiff. Didn’t look at that shaft closely and it was a free fitting deal, so can’t find the settings. I’m thinking the Prolaunch blue senior flex might be best?
  8. Following this thread and thinking about the Lagshot trainer, wonder if the main benefit of the softer whippy shaft is to force the golfer to sequence better. It would require one to have that “mature backswing” Dr. Kwon talks about
  9. Scott has his “Tiger’s 5 rules”keys to score well. Where do you feel you lose shots? https://golf.com/instruction/5-golden-scoring-rules-scott-fawcett/?amp=1
  10. That’s quite cool. Hope you get multiple kick in birdies with this set

    Buhai ate up the course under some quite blustery conditions. Hope she can finish the deal
  12. Golfworks makes quality heads. My son just started playing. After spending too much time (and money) on eBay figuring out which irons for me, I had him work with a fitter to find the right shaft. The Mizuno shaft optimizer was very helpful if you have access. The KE4 tours with DG120 has been great for him and doesn’t break the bank
  13. You measured swing speed in this test. Isn’t the goal to increase ball speed to get more distance? While club head speed might be the same, did one shaft result in better strike patterns? I think Mark Crossfield had argued that shafts are vastly overrated and even TXG guys have stated that shafts do more for timing than anything by else.
  14. Have fun with them. I did a set of Golftec lessons couple years ago. The online lesson recap and the practice bays were the things that really helped for me groove things. That and not abandoning fixes too soon

    If you can get past the look, I found the Ping G15 to be almost stupid easy to hit. Very forgiving. Now if you can get even a rudimentary fitting to know lie angle and what shaft tends to work for you, that will go long way to getting consistent with the irons. I had a set of Golfworks KE4 irons made for my son by his instructor. He had him swing the Mizuno shaft optimizer. That got us a shaft and lie angle. My son is a new golfer, and when he got these, his iron game jumped. Almost made a hole in one with his first time out. Hard to beat at around $400
  16. I’m still spikes. But curious for the spikeless converters, what made you switch and stay switched? I don’t play if actively raining, but do walk almost all my rounds in the dewy morning
  17. For me, growing up less well off than I am now, I struggled with being, let’s say the word, cheap. Have learned over time to pay more for specific things that I valued 1) Quality. Have a number of component clubs that I moved on from because they were cheaply made. Would have saved money paying more and getting a used set from a well made brand (which is my Ping G15s). 2) Memories. Just got back from Pinehurst and decided to buy a putter cover to remember an awesome trip 3) Support good cause. I get value from MGS and few other channels. 4) Expertise. I’m looking for new irons. Developed a great relationship with small golf shop and will be buying from him, because he knows clubs and know how I swing 5) Family and friends I did get my father in-law shirt and from Pinehurst But was able to find it on sale because he is a small Hey, didn’t say I was totally cured
  18. When I am working on swing mechanics, I don’t use it. Because he marks your yardages, I don’t want to muddy up the waters. And I want to focus on the swing feel as opposed to with the ball is doing at the moment. I find it helpful to do my gapping especially with half and three-quarter wedges. That really helped my last couple rounds.
  19. Anyone compare the 699 with Maltby TS-1?
  20. If your son have a golf teacher or coach, he or she can give a good ball park of players or game improvement heads. Then looking at Mygolfspy most wanted list is a good place to start. If not, just have him swing a couple types in same brand family. That he liked the muscle back might mean he needs thinner soled irons For shafts, look for a golf store that has the Mizuno shaft optimizer. It is a gizmo they put on a club and let your son swing. It will give a listing of 3-6 shafts that would work for him. My fitter found that it tends to give recommendations that go across brands. If you are not very brand OEM conscious, consider something like Maltby or Sub70 as your son will outgrow the clubs in 3 years or less. Good luck and have fun with him
  21. Feel for you. Golf is like a whack-a-mole. Improve one part and another problem pops up
  22. Did you check where you impact the face? I got high spin with very positive AoA (average was 4) because I would strike low on face. After watching Monte’s Drive 4 Dough, saw his clip of lowering tee height influenced a more level and centered strike. Swing now around +1 degrees with much more centered strike
  23. I will +1 the tee it lower. I find better contact when I don’t try to swing up, but think line drive and let the ball position make me catch on upswing instead of swing for the fences
