  1. Thank you Dave, loved the write up ! I played Pebble and SpyGlass last summer my first time to the Monterrey peninsula we stayed at The Inn at Spanish Bay and were treated like King and Queen. My family's best vacation ever. I was in heaven ...but heaven is expensive...so I had to leave I have attended the Shell Houston Open as a marshal as well as a fan several times and you are so right about the different nature of watching a tournament as opposed to attending a tournament ( very different ) both are rewarding. Well stated Dave! #IfollowGolfSpy Dave
  2. Hi guys and gals, I'm back to report on my continuing evaluation of W/S D7 driver vs TS2 driver. And W/S Pro vs ProV1x. First off I just want to say I'm so thankful I found MGS ! The insight and thoroughness of a wide variety of articles and opinions has really got me to analyze my own game and equipment like never before. So as I reported last time I had gone back to my TS2 driver and took me a while to adjust to a slightly heavier driver. But how much heavier is my TS2 with a Fujikura Speeder Evolution IV stiff Shaft ? Well I needed to investigate. Very hard to nail down the exact head weight on either driver head but I easily could find the weight of the shafts. UST Mamiya Helium stiff shaft 57gm vs Fujikura Speeder 661 Evolution IV stiff Shaft 67gm. Having seen a benefit from the lighter weight made me look towards other options and fortunately I have two other shafts that fit the TS2 driver head. So I pulled out spare shaft HZRDUS SMOKE 60g stiff Shaft to compare and low and behold it is not only lighter it is also longer! Measure the length of the shaft stupid! Turns out my Speeder evolution is a 44" shaft and my HZRDUS Smoke is a more standard 45". Then I measured the UST Mamiya Helium is also 45". Lighter and longer that sounds like a good combination Well it is a good combination...had my best driving stats of my 8 rounds tracked by Arrcos as well as my lowest score this year! Changed my Titleist TS2 15* Fairway, Fujikura Speeder Evolution IV stiff Shaft as well.

  12. Hi Guys and Gals, Weather here in Houston still a challenge, 100 degrees one day and flooding the next. But I was able to get a couple rounds in these last two weeks. Put my Titleist TS2 back in play with my last two W/S Pro balls. I could really feel the difference swinging my TS2 felt much heavier but really solid when I put a good swing on it. Statistically according to my arccos stats I am gaining 2 strokes per round when playing the W/S D7 driver vs my Titleist TS2. What I deduced or observed was that after swinging a slightly lighter driver ( W/S D7 ) for three rounds it took me a round and a half to adjust back to my heavier driver ( TS2 ). My back nine yesterday was pretty much my best driving of the last two months. I do think reducing the weight of the club must be an advantage. As far as the W/S professional ball...statistically has performed just as good as Titleist ProV1x...the two balls performed equally based on Arccos stats. And as far as feel goes I could tell no difference. This little experiment of mine has opened my eyes a bit, performance doesn't come with a name. Performance comes with what is right for your game and many of the not so high profile brands out there are producing great equipment! It is a good thing I discovered this because I got some great news today...wait for it...I was chosen to be a MGS tester today ! I'm one of 8 Lynx iron testers and I'm going to be reporting what I learn, feel, think, and statistically find in the new Black Cat Irons. I'm psyched ! Please follow me on this new journey. I'll let you when I get the Irons MyGolfSpy is the bomb !
  13. I sure like my D7 driver, guess I need to go to Golf Galaxy and try the D7 irons
  14. Thanks Bosox04, I had looked there and had 4 and 4.5 rated courses.
