    F8

    I realize the F9 is the new KING of SPEED for Cobra, but I got to hit my teammates F8 with the lighter HZRDUS Yellow (63g maybe?) 6.5 flex against my Ping G30 with the Tour 65 S shaft. I was SHOCKED at how smooth the Yellow felt for me even in 6.5 flex vs the Ping. I hit it on two holes and out drove my ping by 10-15 yards, and they were good hits too. The set ups we're not exact, as my PING was lofted up a notch from the 10.5 and his was set on 9.5. Surprisingly I hit them about equal heights, and the Cobra's flight was perfect to my eye. On top of that the Cobra sounded and felt very powerful, while the Ping admittedly just kind of sounds loud. I might have to check out some F8's for sale... which is not something I was expecting. But if that's the case mayyyybe I should swing the F9 too.
  3. Bryan Massachusetts I Currently game a Scotty Cameron Select Newport that I recently had adjusted to fit me better. Besides length, loft, and lie adjustments we also added a 90 gram counter weight into the grip. I'd be really interested to compare the feel on this to the stroke lab line of putters. Putting is a strength of my game, but it can always be better! Thanks MGS for another great opportunity for your community!
  4. any more teasers or is it article time!? I cannot wait to see what the results of this testing were. I typically play the Pro V1x, but this time of year I'll try out some of the better balls I've found over the year. If it's in good shape, feels new, and doesn't look like its sat outside for the whole winter I'll give it a swing. I currently have: a Snell, a Vice, a Callaway, a Titleist AVX, a Taylormade TP5, and maybe one or two more tour balls to swing. The Taylormade and Snell felt nice putting the other day.
  5. Played my first round of the season today. A quick 9-hole round at Bungay Brook in Bellingham. It’s a nice WIDE open course to open the year with. The putter felt great, and I recorded 3 one putts and 6 two putts for 15 total putts. I was quite happy! Ended up even par 36 with one bogey and one birdie. Distance control felt awesome, and the 3 to 4 footers were nice and smooth with the added stability I felt in my hands. If this round was anything like what the rest of the year will be, I can’t recommend going for a putter fitting enough! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. I don’t like that where you are was 82 degrees. There was sleet on my lawn last night. #newenglandgolferproblems Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Don’t worry. You can’t stay away from PING for too long... he will be back! Haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Let us know how it looks! Hit ‘em straight! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Congrats to the lucky contestants! The bad news is, now you boys have to deal with the rest of us all summer! Looking forward to hearing your stories and watching your progress throughout the summer! Hit 'em straight!
  10. I just picked up a s20 for my dad for his birthday. He Finally expressed interest in knowing yardages easily. So maybe now he’ll hit a (expletive) green in our league! Haha I keep telling him to aim for the back of the green until he flies them 5-6 times a round. He says he takes a longer club, but then ends up swinging easy. Hopefully this will help him find his form and get some of those lost strokes back! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Congrats on breaking 100 for the first time!! I remember the first times I broke 100 or 50 for 9 holes when I was playing against my dad. Great memories for me! Just like that first par or birdie. I’m just as proud of those memories as my personal best 75. Ironically, my friend show his personal best 95 that day. Doesn’t matter what the number is when it’s a new record it’s worth celebrating! Good luck this year in getting better and breaking 90! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Congrats to the testers. Verrry interested to hear the reviews of the Contour Pro. I demoed a putter with it and it is on my short list when it’s time to replace the pistolero on my Newport. I’m interest to see what folks will be comparing it to so I know if there’s anything else worth checking out! Go drain some putts! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Interesting, never heard of them before. Screen on the side reminded me of the bushnell combo gps unit, does it also show you the yardage through the viewfinder? Would seem counterproductive to need to target and check the distance then potentially target again on something else (like using scan mode) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. There really should be one of those badges! It's more rare than a hole in one after all! Source: https://www.pga.com/news/golf-buzz/odds-hole-in-one-albatross-condor I appreciate the thoughtful consideration by the MGS Badge Committee (if such a thing exists).
  15. I’ve paid for an iron fitting there before where we ended up hitting everything except the putter. He made recommendations for it all and worked with my existing driver (switched to the ping tour 65 shaft) and he advised me to sell my 3 wood and buy the 5 wood with tour shaft as well. He even gave me a print out of what my specs should be if I purchased elsewhere. I ended up having my irons built by them because I was interested in having them MOI matched, but there was definitely no pressure to buy from them if I didn’t want to. I even left before calling them back a few days later as I was still deciding between the titleist and mizuno heads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
