  2. Thanks. I’ll check that out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I don’t like wearing a watch when I play but love to have that technology available. Bought a Bushnell Phantom Golf GPS and really love it! Has a great app for the phone and so far every course I have played has been on it. Main display shows front middle and back distances of the green and it will also display fairway and greenside bunker distances as well. If you don’t want to wear a watch it is a great alternative. I’d get one of the bright colors if you intend to use the magnet on the back to attach it to a golf cart. That way it would less easy to lose. That would be my only real negative of the device. Would hate to accidentally leave it somewhere. Other nice thing is there are no additional annual fees. Buy it once and forget it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yeah. It’s totally a want. Not to impress my friends. In fact I am a little embarrassed to be considering it. However I am passionate about golf. I don’t really expect great improvement or anything. Hopefully some. Really think the range and simulator capabilities would be a blast to use in the long IA winters. That’s Iowa, not Ohio or Idaho. Those are different places [emoji23]. Reason I haven’t is because it is so darn expensive for one thing the other is so always wondering if I won’t enjoy the purchase as much as I think I would. I don’t have access to big box golf stores to hit on a launch monitor without a 2 hour drive. Thanks for your input. Honestly wanted to hear other perspectives which is why I posted it originally.

  5. Yes. Not a ton. I play at least 6 a year. Some years more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I was thinking that would be an issue. Makes club data less appealing to me with GCQuad. Now that you mention it I remember that happening to Ben Crane. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Ok Spies looking for some advice. Been saving for a real launch monitor for years. I realize these are insanely expensive but as I said I have been saving up and am close to pulling the trigger. I would primarily use this in my garage hitting bay for testing carry distance and dispersion as well as use the simulator function for the range, skills and course play. Wouldn’t be doing a full blown screen or projector at this point. Would hope to add that later. I would also want to take this to the range some during the season for practice. Been thinking QCquad for several reasons. Primarily the ease of use in the new form factor and accuracy of the new design. I like the fact that you have a larger hitting area and that it is easily transported to the range. So my questions are should I get the club head feature? I would like to have it but am not sure if it will be worth the money. I worry about having the stickers on my gamers and one falling off during a tournament or something as well as having to replace these after playing outside. So i guess I am looking for thoughts. Is the GCQuad worth it? Should I consider a GC2 or something else. I appreciate any of your thoughts!!
  8. Dang. Love the blacked out look!

  10. Garage practice set-up. Bender is big on feedback negative or positive when making a swing change. My favorite drill station to help me hit push draws. Cone set on toe line to promote hands in club head out on backswing. Impact bag set up so club path goes in to out slightly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I personally feel like Mike Bender might be the best golf instruction Instagram account around. Some of his methods are certainly different than many of the new instructors touting opening up, wrist angles and rotation. From what I have read he strives to teach the most efficient swing possible and he does a darn good job at it!!

  12. Congrats guys! Truly envious. Can’t wait to hear the reviews. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I have read the book as well. While I don’t have the time right now to provide a lengthy review I will say one of the tips I found most valuable was practicing hitting full shots with the ball in widely varying positions within your stance from in front of your lead leg to behind your trail leg (and everyplace in between) I have added this to my range sessions by hitting 10-20 balls in this manner just trying to put center face contact on the ball. It does wonders for your confidence and your ability to get the club on the ball correctly from different positions. You can also do the same thing from different lies and slopes. As we all know when you are playing golf on the course it is rarely a flat lie like the range. Ultimately the task remains the same of controlling the clubface to make good contact and direct the ball toward the target. I have found that this has helped me a bunch- give it a try.

  14. I see what your doing there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Wow. Can’t believe Rahm tried that shot. 14 mph wind left to right trying to hit a big hook out of a bunker and he usually fades it. Dumb. Loved the reaction of his caddy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Well you might get it today! Can someone please hit a fairway! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Well this got interesting quickly! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  18. Sorry. Didn’t see it when I was looking through the threads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. I like Fleetwood too. Love his action. Too many over draws yesterday. He did play well on the back nine yesterday but he has never won on PGA TOUR and he even stated that this is one of the biggest events from a crowd perspective he has ever played. Rory has been in this position so many times I just think the odds are in his favor plus he is in second to last group which might take a little pressure off. Would love to see Furyk pull it off but don’t think that it is likely. I think Jason Day has a real good chance as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. I think McIlroy will get that putter going finally and close this thing out. He had so many opportunities on Saturday I think the odds will fall in his favor in the end. What say you?
  21. Just got back from AZ. We Ko Pa is a must play. Not sure where you are staying but another must play is out west called Verrado Founder’s Course. I have played it many times and it is an absolute blast. Prices will range from $100-$129.00 depending on when you play. I would look at different Tee time websites and get the best deal and call the pro shop as well. They usually match any deals. As far as the course goes every hole is different. There are houses around the course on some holes (not all) but they are positioned well off the course. There is some dramatic elevation change on several holes. You will hit every club in the bag which to me says a lot about the course design. It is challenging but doesn’t beat you up all day either. Favorite holes- 3,5,8,9,13,15,16,18. Crap that list got long. Hole 15 is a long par 5 with a back drop of the White Tank Mountains. No houses on the west side of the hole just amazing views. Truly one of my favorite places on earth. Holes 16 and 18 have awesome tee shots heading east down the mountain with dramatic elevation change. You will hit some of the longest drives of your life on those two holes. 18 is steeply down hill off the tee and the second shot. It is picturesque to say the least- i would take par every day and be happy. I love the hole but it will eat your lunch if you are not careful. Finally sitting on the patio after the round to enjoy a beer and the best quesadilla you will ever have makes for a great end to a great day. Sorry that was a long reply. Probably made your decision harder. Jason
