  1. Haha some are better than others at marking! But unless they have yardages in each hitting bay I would trust the big old 150 sign in the middle of the range. But yeah, I’ve also launched the occasional wedge off a mat 150 yards for hitting a touch fat and launching the ball up up and away haha. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. What makes me laugh is that my friend had an older Callaway driver with an adjustable Hosel, but it was before the optifit. Instead of the + or - that they show now it just has open, neutral, or closed. I almost wish they would go back to that since if you sole your club before gripping that’s what you’re doing anyway. Then my friend won’t laugh at me using a 10.5 driver in the + position. Well, he stops laughing when I’m 20 yards longer anyway... haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Maybe I didn’t want to do what you did. Haha I want to get the 9 head, so that I can use the + setting to help close the face a bit but have it closer to the loft of my 10.5 neutral setting. That way I’ll still get the launch and spin down a touch with the help in keeping it straighter. Of course now I’ve seen a good deal on a rogue and really enjoyed the evenflow blue in a few different heads last week. So I guess I’m a little all over the place with my latest driver hunt. (Maybe that’s a credit to how excellent the g30 still is). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Since today seems like update day: I finished level one early this week and feel great about the program. I pretty much kept right up with it and the weather cooperated enough that if I got rained out one night I was able to make it up early the next day or that following evening. I think a large part of the success I have is being able to get out on a normal schedule. It also helps that I enjoy doing this program, and the swing speed radar certainly adds a lot to the excitement/challenge of beating your bests. Here’s a summary of my level 1 progress: When I started my dry swing was 100 mph on the swing speed radar. That felt like a good number to me at the time. Maybe not my highest, but probably close to my average. Swinging the same way 2 days after the end of level 1 I hit 108 mph! An 8 mph or 8% gain! Lovely! A few things I’ve noticed: besides my offhand and red swings, my numbers don’t actually increase much from the first week. Below is a chart of each session. For a while I was ramping up, but I settled down in the last week. More on that after the chart: So why do I think I settled down in the last week? Two reasons likely. 1. I’ve been going out on lunch and trying new drivers. As a result probably 2 to 3 times a week I’ve been taking full swings at balls to the time of 50-70 swings per session. It’s not easy trying to find that new combo! (I think my G30 heard that I was looking around and decided she better start performing). 2. I think I got a little lazy with my form. Totally on me, and I know I need to stay focused and engage my lower body, just like out on the course. I’ll be starting level 2 probably next Monday as I have a busy weekend coming up. I might just continue with an extra level 1 week because I am going on a golf trip so have 18-36-36 booked for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday next week. I’m trying to sneak in another 18 Tuesday too if the wife won’t get too mad! Last two points: 1. Does it work? Beyond the numbers I see in training... your bed your butt it does! My longest drive has come this year about 5 weeks into the program: 2. While I said 108 was my highest I have two caveats. I did hit 114 on a dry swing, once, somewhere in the 4th or 5th week. It was only once, and wasn’t at the end of level 1 so I’ll leave that as an outlier. Lastly, when hitting balls at the range with the radar I have consistently hit 110-111. I’m not sure if that has something to do with the ball being there or not. But for tracking I decided that since I started with dry swings I would use the highest dry swing versus the ones with a ball at the range to keep the variables consistent. Yayyyy to kneeling swings (anyone do the modified standing ones instead?). I mean: On to level 2... and beyond!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Woo! Thanks MGS! Looking forward to putting this through its paces with the other testers and letting the community know if it lives up to expectations. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. That’s awesome!! I read an article recently talking about how longer drives leads to better putting since you’re likely to be closer to the hole. Sounds like you’re a perfect example of that! Keep it up! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. That’s exactly what has me wanting to upgrade! I have a g30 10.5 and hit best in the + position which closes the face, but now I’m getting a bit too much launch/spin. I want to get something in 9 degree so I can do the same and take my Flight down a touch. Now I just need to decide on which head to get. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Love that place. Both courses are amazing! Enjoy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Got to hit one a few times. (Both regular and sub zero) it’s a good feeling and sounding driver. Early testing says it might be a good fit for me especially considering the price against my other favorite right now the cobra f9. A few more days of testing should lock it down.

  10. It does surprise me a ton at how many of my peers do not have a putting routine. It’s the only thing you can keep consistent and makes a big difference! My strikes got better as a result of my fitting, and as a bonus it helped my path. I’m noticing more balls rolling nicely end over end now where before I was still putting well, but the ball wasn’t tracking perfectly where I lined up my ball for. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Probably a little bit of both... You can be a bad fit for your equipment which would only add to your inconsistency. When I got fit I was very good at returning to square, but my path was out of whack because my putter was too long and upright. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. That’s what I always worry about with dark finishes. And now for some heckling: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Bryan from Bellingham, MA I currently use a Leupold GX3i2 and have friends with Bushnell's and one with the NX7 Pro. I also usually have a GPS app open for front/back blind shot yardages. I like to have an idea of what I'm shooting at to see if I'm better off missing long vs short and left vs right. Not that I always pull that off, but it's good to have a plan right!
  14. Nice drives! What are you using to track? I’m thinking about getting Arccos but trying to do some research on options. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. How is the sound different? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
