  1. I don't know if there's already a forum for this, but I've found a couple of great deals for Amazon's Prime Day specials. I picked up the Cobra Ultralight Cart Bag which was the runner up in this year's best cart bag buyer's guide for 30% off (not sure if it's still available). It's funny that I picked it up for a lot cheaper than the choice for Best Value cart bag (although I really wanted that one because I thought it looked nicer). I also bought MGS's choice for best spikeless shoe and the Puma runner up to compare - both for 30% off. The Puma runner-up this year was last year's choice for best spikeless shoe so I'm curious to see the difference. Use the MGS links to support them and see if these deals are still available. https://mygolfspy.com/the-best-cart-bag-of-2019/ https://mygolfspy.com/best-spikeless-shoe-of-2019/ Post any other deals you find!
  2. I’ll give that a try. Just put a thin layer of water on the face before each hit? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. So... I did a bit of practice in my backyard hitting my driver and seven iron into my golf net. I sprayed Dr. Scholl's on the club faces to get some strike location feedback. It appears that I let my practice session run a bit too long as there is some spray caked on to the toe area of my driver (where I tend not to hit), and high on the iron face and in the toe (again, where I tend not to hit). I usually wipe the faces with a wet towel when I change clubs at the range, but I just did a cursory wipe when changing clubs this time. This didn't happen to me the first five or six times I used the spray. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Any tips on what to use to clean the faces without damaging them? I tried some soap and water and rubbed them with a towel but to no avail. Any help would be appreciated. As an aside, this is one of the best feedback mechanisms for understanding how you can improve your strike, and I feel like most golfers should try it out. But learn from my experience and wipe your club face with a wet towel every five shots or so!

  5. Ryan/Los Angeles, CA 25/90 Callaway Rogue X 18* Strata 22* I would choose the 18*, since I'm more inconsistent with my current club. I'd want to compare my performance numbers against what I currently have.
  6. How much was did you pay for the set at the time? Is it holding up well?

  8. You're definitely onto something. I played a round the other week and my ball striking was better than it ever has been, but I lost a lot at least 5 strokes around and on the greens. Chunked chips, a bladed chip, and not understanding the speed of the green really hurt the round. But I was still pleased with how well I was doing off the tee and on the approach. Gotta keep working at it!
  9. Thanks! I actually got fitted for clubs a few months after I started. And now I feel like a gearhead always looking for new thinks to buy. How did you find these much better golfers to play with? Did you join leagues or tournaments?
  10. Well done! 76 feels like a long ways off for me but looking forward to getting there
  11. That's exactly how I've been feeling with these two steps forward one step back progress I've been making. Golf can feel really brutal sometimes haha. I really like your story of when you started feeling confident because I feel like that's the type of confidence I'm looking for. I can get pretty competitive in just about anything, and I want to be able to play with better, more experienced golfers without slowing down pace of play.
  12. Thanks for the great feedback everyone! It's awesome to see how there are so many humble golfers out there even though they're at levels I'm looking to reach. I enjoy the hard work it's taking to see that incremental improvement (although my wallet isn't enjoying the cost). Yes, my question was intentionally phrased to be subjective. I'm a finance quant and data geek, but I also like hearing about people's subjective feelings towards the sport and their own games so I was asking more for the mental side of the game. I often find that when I'm standing at that first tee, I feel unsure about where my game is at that day and don't feel all that confident that I'm going to play well. Then after a few holes I feel like everything is ok, and I get into a flow. Does anyone find that goes away with experience, or do you all still find yourselves feeling nervous as well?
  13. This is my first topic on the forum! I started golfing last August with a box set from Amazon and learning from Youtube videos. I first took a series of group lessons, tried out a few coaches, and then I started working weekly with a coach that I felt I clicked with. We've been making some great progress with my ball striking, but sometimes I feel like when we build in more feels or improve something else in the swing, some of the wheels start falling off again and I feel like I'm regressing. It can get quite frustrating. I just wanted to find out from some of the more experienced members of the forum how long it took them before they felt "good" at the game. I put "good" in quotes because I'm not really using an objective metric - more wondering about what your own opinions of "good" are and when did you all start feeling confident on the course. Was there an "Aha!" moment that lead to that confidence?
  14. Thanks for this! I actually bought a gooseneck product because I figured I can use it in more situations including attaching it to my bag. Cheers!
