  1. Hi Ya. Myrtle golf here. I use some gps installed on carts and have a old Garmin wrist devise. I normally look at the ground markers and then look at the target. I base my club selection mostly on eye sight as it relates to the lie of the ball. If the marker indicates 150 yards, I look at the flag and determine by sight if it will play longer or shorter. After all as a 13 handicapper 5 yards aint that big of a deal for me. As we all know the vast majority of players come up short on their approach shots, so for me sight helps me determine what club I actually should hit. Most of the time I will come up somewhere pin high if I get it in the club face. This test will help me and many others to determine if the devise can eliminate that "just short" shot by providing total carry to desired target, best place to miss target and probably just as important best target off the tee.
  2. I went to Club Champions for a club fitting. I bought my fitted Mizuno Tzoids 17 years ago and until last year hit them pretty well considering. I changed shafts to Recoils and that made a good improvement. But after my fitting I purchased the Taylor Made P790's once inch over standard laid down 2 degrees with the Fiber steel I95 shafts in regular flex. I just played my first round with them and they really perform. I will need to get to the range but the ball jumps off the face. I picked up between one and two clubs or 10 to 20 yards. I haven't hit a 6 iron 175 yards in three years but I am now. My woods are my next project. I was fitted with Pings but I couldn't make them as I wanted so I returned them. Technology is a great thing baby.
  3. I have been playing golf for about 30 years but more recently since I retired about 8 years ago. Since I traveled extensively I played on weekends weather permitting. My 13 handicap was a low as an 8 but who's counting? I enjoy the outdoors and friendly competition and golf gives me both. But more importantly it challenges one to strive for improvement. I found MYgollfspy while doing driver shaft research and loved the concept and unbiased research. I have forwarded the website address to several of my buddies. I live in Myrtle Beach and I quit the country club because I play with two groups that change courses every week, so I have no "home course". The best thing about golf in Myrtle Beach is the cost and the worst thing is the snowbirds who flock to the area. Guess you can't have one without the other. I picked my user name because that is what the area is noted for, with regards to golf. Some call this area the red neck riviera but with over 2000 restaurants, miles of beach and hundreds of entertainment venues I call it home. Have a good one.
