  1. 1. Ryan, Lincolnton, NC 2. I’m lucky enough to be able to play year round! 3. I’ve never used a putting mat, always practice on my living room carpet but it’s a bit slow. 4. I would go for the medium speed. Thanks for the opportunity guys! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The more I think about it, the more I feel like their isn’t really much to take from it, just a lot of questions. My scoring averages are way high compared to this data but I assume that’s because it’s September and my handicap is about 5 strokes better than it was in January. That gets me thinking about the endless variables that can skew the averages in such a big data set. Interesting, but not comparable to an ever changing handicap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I find it really interesting that the scoring averages for the 2 handicap don’t fall in line with the rest of the handicaps. The averages being much closer between the 2 and 8 than the rest contradicts the idea that higher handicaps are more inconsistent. Maybe a difference in the data sample size? Or due to 2 handicaps playing more difficult courses? I’d like to know why that is... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’d ask myself what scores better... Accuracy is irrelevant if it leaves you with little chance of finding the green, and 300 yard drives are useless if you’re punching out of the woods. A lot of people associate swinging easy with accuracy and accuracy with scoring, I do not find that to be true. 30 yards is a lot of club on an approach. I’d use strokes gained to make sure you’re not just boosting fairway% at the expense of your approach play, and most likely scoring. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. If you’re wanting to understand strokes gained in general, not just how they use it in most wanted testing, I highly recommend reading Mark Broadies book, Every Shot Counts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’ve been following his thread on and off, as a V2 user wondering if the upgrade is worth it. I feel like I’m leaning more towards Arccos than V3. Seems to be no real upgrades other than watch size compared to V2. After being very happy with V2 for over a year, with minimal issues, I’ve had regular issues ever since the release of V3. Missed shots, missed holes, lost rounds, and tech support went from excellent to almost nonexistent. Hopefully they get caught up and make improvements, and finally add strokes gained. Otherwise they will be losing a customer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. You have to ask yourself what you are looking to get out of your time/money spent. Generally I say lessons will produce much more value over time if you’re wanting to get better. I would be pretty unhappy if I spent years working with an instructor and was a 25 handicap, but that’s really based on how much time you practice and play. Some people play every few weeks and have a few lessons a year and enjoy the game while others play weekly and really try to get better. Either way, if your goal is improvement, lessons are the way to go. New clubs are nice and exciting but they won’t make you play better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. That would be homemade, my version of the super speed sticks. Here is the link to my build I wrote last year [emoji1313] My DIY SuperSpeed Golf project and results https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/topic?share_fid=1398933&share_tid=31527&url=https%3A%2F%2Fforum%2Emygolfspy%2Ecom%2F&share_type=t&link_source=app Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Having played for just over 3 years now, I finally feel like I have a WITB worthy set of sticks. Having been through a few fittings and recent changes In my bag, for the first time I have no plans to add or change anything. So here is what I’m working with... Callaway Epic Flash 9° (@8°) | Mitsubishi Tensi AV Blue 65S Cobra F9 3/4 FW (@14.5) | Fuji. Atmos Blue 7 75S Cobra F9 One 5H 24° | Fuji. Atmos 7 75S Mizuno JPX919 HM 5-GW | Nippon NS Pro 950GH R Callaway MD4 54°-12° W Grind | True Temper DG S200 Callaway MD4 58°-10° S Grind | True Temper DG S200 Odyssey White Hot Pro #1 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’ve always choked up on my 5/6 irons so the length is comparable to my 7 and hybrid. Haven’t had the chance to compare them on a launch monitor but my 5i and hybrid are the same loft though I get very different ball flights. My hybrid flies quite a bit higher than my 5 iron. I was surprised to see about a 20 yard gap between them considering the short length of the hybrid. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. I’ve never had an issue. It’s only and 1/8” hole countersunk just enough to get the ball to rest in the same spot on the center line. I believe the real deal from Pelz has a bigger indent for the ball to rest on. I believe I saw Phil is still using it this weekend on the putting green. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I deleted the app after I noticed the “DEAL TIMES” were at a higher than standard rate. Still use TeeOff from time to time but they’re now owned by the same company so I’m sure they won’t exist very much longer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Yea if it doesn’t detect your putt it defaults to 2 foot putts. To do it manually, you have to go into settings and set putting to manual mode. Then you just have to press the button over each putt and record the pin location. Most accurate way by far, it literally just records your location each time you push the button. The only thing I’ve had to edit is a few greens seem to be slightly off on the mapping where I need to move everything over one direction. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. 5 rounds down and the results are undeniable. Had a few bad days with the driver but no worse than before but the good days were noticeably better. Most bad shots I find are strike related, although I do have the occasional center strike bomb that turns way left. On average I’ve gained 23 yards with my driver, still a small data sample but more to come. I did go halfway back on my earlier adjustment. After talking to Callaway to confirm, I left the loft at -1(8°) but went back with the lie setting. They say the draw setting is about 2° upright and the face angle change is negligible, slight open in neutral and slightly closed in draw, at -1 loft. Loft and lie adjustments being completely independent of one another. I had gone to -1 loft and draw, (wanting to bring the height down and start the ball further right) but I didn’t like the pulls I saw. So -1 loft and neutral is where I’m staying. Looking at my dispersion, the shots I’d like to eliminate are the short right pulls. Either end up OB or ricocheting off a tree back into play. Overall not a whole lot different left to right than before, just longer. The real eye opener for me was when I plotted my distance(P-AVG) against strokes gained for each round. Generally the belief is faster/longer is more inaccurate and detrimental to scoring but clearly that is not the trend I see. As the trend line indicates, as my length has increased, my scoring went up. Especially when you look at my season average prior to the changes, the lone dot bottom left. Again, small data set(5 rounds) vs 25 previous rounds this year.
