  1. @SimonBazas We clearly need a "Most Wanted Tee" test.
  2. Does anyone have a recommendation on how to combine the superspeed training protocol and the orange whip training? Would they compliment each other or somehow counteract? Would it be wise to use both on the same day or to alternate? I guess the overall goal would be to get the speed improvements from the superspped and the tempo/balance benefits of the orange whip.
  3. I'm due for a new hybrid as my current one is the only club in my set with a regular shaft as I've transitioned everything else to stiff. I similarly like the idea of the one length hybrid to add some stability and forgiveness to those longer shots. I was wondering if you found it harder to hit your 5 and 6 iron after using a shorter hybrid and if you saw a noticeable difference between the launch/distance/spin of the hybrid and your 5 iron that are probably similar lofts?
  4. I was under the impression that "Low Spin" Drivers were meant for better players (who typically have higher swing speeds) so I was surprised to see the Ping G410 LST as the runner up in the slow swing speed category. Similarly the Callaway Mavrik Subs (Max and Zero) were ranked in the top 5 and significantly outperformed the regular Callaway Mavrik at slow swing speeds. Do I have the wrong understanding of who "Low Spin" drivers are for? Don't a lot of tour players use those models? What am I missing about the benefit/goal of the low spin technology?
  5. Do you have a favorite course to play in Corpus? I make it down to the coast a few times a summer and have played Palmilla (RIP 18 hole course), Oso Beach, North Shore and CCCC.
  6. That's great, well done on a good solid build!
  7. Has anyone else played the most golf of their life recently? I've been fortunate enough for that to be the case over the past two months. Courses around me (San Antonio, TX) started with social-distancing protocols, then were walking-only (my favorite rounds of the year so far), then closed for a week and then went back to just social-distancing protocols. As a result there was basically always golf to play and nothing else to do and nowhere else to go so I've gotten out almost weekly when normally I only get 1 or 2 rounds in a month.
  8. Took longer than expected but I finally got the tools to start working on this. I got a 4 lb hammer and 3" anvil/vise from Harbor Freight and 1/8" Letter and Number sets from Young Bros. I decided to start practicing with the stamping promise by making some ball markers. I got a ton of 1" punched aluminum disks that are a waste product from my work and started getting used to the stamping process. I used double-sided tape to hold the marker down to the anvil. This definitely helped to keep it stationary as I swung the hammer. I was surprised at how difficult i
  9. @JBalocik also those wedges look amazing, I like the creativity in the words, symbols and paint job
  10. @JBalocik What double-sided tape would you recommend? I have seen some that advertise as permanent and that concerns me if it will be hard to pull apart or leave a residue.
  11. I've found the OW to be most beneficial while doing step-swings as I can feel where the club is as my weight is moving forward. It helps me to realize that my weight should be moving forward while the club is still going back.
  12. @TR1PTIK thanks for the input. What do you find most beneficial from the stats you keep? I've seen stat tracking sheets with different distances broken out and can see the benefit. It seems like tracking outcomes from each shot like that would give you more information about why you made a particular score on each given hole as opposed to the whole round in general. That is, more of a micro view compared to the macro view my stats currently provide. This would be more similar to a strokes gained type calculation because you could see how you perform in different facets of the game (drivin
  13. I've been doing some at-home analysis of my stats for the past 16 months and wanted to share in the hopes that you might be able to provide some ideas or insight into what else could be done with this information. After every round I input date, score, round index, number of: birdies, pars, bogeys, doubles, triples, putts, GIRs and fairway percentage into a google drive sheet. I then update scatter plots that show score vs.: birdies, pars, bogeys, double, triples, GIRs, putts and FIR and a separate set that shows round index vs each of those stats. My initial goal was to see how each of t
  14. For the full swing gate I was thinking of something along the lines of Eyeline Golf's Speed Trap 2.0. Durability would definitely be a consideration, maybe it would be best for practice swings- "grooving a feeling"- as opposed to hitting shots.
