  1. Tom Hale Saint Louis, Missouri I am an avid player. I play 9 holes 4 weekday mornings per week (weather permitting) as well as 2-4, 18 hole weekend rounds per month. In addtion to this, I usually play 5 hole "desert" rounds with my 6 and 7 year old daughters. (I am a teacher and have summers off). My 7 year old currently competes in US Kid's golf Local tour events as well as CYC golf. We could use a great range finder. We currently use a cheap Simmons Tilt that I picked up at walmart for $70. It works well but it compensates for elevation (No option to disable) so it i
  2. It was nice being able to demo several times to get the best overall fit for my daily differences. I will say though, I bought the Hogan Equalizer wedges on name alone and they are stellar. They remind me of the MacGregor Tourney Forged I had years ago.
  3. After a couple of abdominal surguries. I lost a ton of swing speed and needed a new driver. I shopped and shopped and finally chose the EXS. I have it in 9.5 stiff set at upright neutral. I liked it so much that I went back and tested the 3 wood and hybrids. Well, those are in my bag now too. Fitting makes a huge differnce, but these things are cannons!
  4. Thanks guys! I was thinking about creating a spreadsheet to track this. You have convinced me. I should start a thread, post initial results, and then update it every week. I am really looking for this to help my daughter. She hits the ball very well but she just doesnt have the speed.
  5. I went ahead and ordered the radar. It should arrive today. I am pumped to get going with this.
  6. I just picked up a set for myself and the All Star set for my 7yo daughter. She has a great swing but she is small and does not generate much swing speed. We watched some videos and she is fired up to get started with training. I do have a couple of questions that I hope somebody can help out with. 1. I did not purchase the radar nor do I have a swing caddy or Mevo. Is this completely neccesary or will we be fine without it? 2. Do any of you have experience with these and children? If so, any tips, tricks, thoughts, etc would be very welcome. 3.Do you guys use these as a preroun
  7. Whats up fellas. How long have you been playing golf? I have been playing for about 25 years. However, I took about a 7 year hieatus after college. I still played acouple times a year but nothing like what I did before. What’s your handicap or normal score? When I was coaching high school golf (and we did not have kids) I would regulary shoot low to mid 70's with an occasional round that snuck into the 60's. THese days, it really depends on who shows up. So far this year, I have shot as low as 72 and as high as 93. However, most of my rounds have been in the mid to high
  8. Hello, I just stumbled across this forum because of my nightly YouTube viewing. I loved the Ball test and the reviews. I lilve in the St. Louis area and have 3 daughters. My oldest is 7 and she is becoming quite the little player. My 6 yo is starting to show some interest as well. I recently got the the go ahead from the boss to convert our garage into a golf training facility of sorts. Nets, simulator, green. THis should be fun.I am looking forward to getting some insight and ideas from this forum. Tom
  9. Tom/Missouri White Hot Pro #9 and Works Versa #7 Right I am interested for several reasons. First and foremost, I love putters. I have quite a few but I am currently looking for a new gamer. My #9 is what lives in my bag most of the time but we have a love/hate relationship and this year has been a little light on the love. I have come to the conclusion that my stroke has evolved (or devolved depending on who you ask) and I now would benefit from a mallet. I also love the idea that there are companies such as Snell, Tour Edge, Ben Hogan, etc that are putting out high qua
