  1. I've been recently using the 18birdies app the last few months. Similar concept I think to Game Golf. The basic GPS and tracking is free, but they have some premium features such as Caddy as well. I have used it a fee times to track tee shots but haven't used to track my irons yet. I mostly use it as a GPS and scorecard, because I'm normally focused more on hitting the shot than tracking the shot. Here are a couple screen shots.
  2. When buying golf clothes I have a few rules: 1. Nothing white. Too hard to keep stains off, and everything goes in the wash together at our house 2. Read the tag to make sure no special washing requirements, again because everything goes in the washer and dryer together. *edit* rule 3. Check the clearance rack first. 90% of my UA, Nike, and Puma gear was at 50% off or more at the PGA Superstore I see why it would make sense to turn clothes inside out for care. My kids certainly do this with every clothing article, but not on purpose. I prefer to leave my clothes outside out so I can avoid the extra pre and post wash steps.
  3. The composite weave is pretty, but I've never had one. I would be worried about the durability, as it seems to me they would be more prone to cracking. Also interested to see how this affects the sound and feel. My experience with Tour Edge in the past is that they make a very functional product as a fraction of the price.
  4. Rule 1. Bring clubs with you so you have options. You don't want to get up there with your wedge and then realize a lower shot would be better suited. Rule 2. Limit your options to 2 or maybe 3 clubs. Nothing hurts chipping more than indecision. Once you commit to the kind of shot you want to hit, pick that 1 club. For Lower chips: I personally don't go for anything lower than a PW for running shots, but generally use a sandwedge for most bump and runs, played further back in my stance. Typically lean forward with the weight on my front foot, set my hands with a bit of a forward press, then lock them in place. Let the shoulders and arms do all the work and hit the ball on shallow decending blow. club typically square or slightly closed. For High Chips: Typically use SW for shots that need to carry 40-60% of the distance, and LW for shots that need to carry more than 60%. again, weight on front foot, but ball more in center or front of stance, focuse on hitting the ball at the bottom of the swing and not on the way back up. typically open up the club 5-10 degrees, andkeep the wrists locked so that the arms and shoulders are doing the work. One of the biggest issues I see is people that scoop the ball/rotate their wrists. One thing that helped me out tremendously, especially when under pressure, was having jumbo grips as they take the wrists out of the swing. I experimented with 1 wedge, and eventually got the jumbo grips on all my clubs.
  5. Particularly in the warmer tournaments, he sweats more than most. Here is an article about his wardrobe changes https://www.nationalclubgolfer.com/news/tiger-woods-sweats/ I remember 1 time, I think at the Masters several years ago, where he changed shirts and then had to rip it as it didn't fit right in his shoulders and was restricting his swing, then changed shirts a few holes later
  6. So many guys out there are dippers: Brooks, DJ, Kisner.. I believe Tiger has done that some in the past, but wouldn't be surprised if it was nicotine gum for both Tiger and Phil. I used to dip, but for the past 7-8 years, use the gum on the course. He wants to curb his appetite, but also he loses too much weight during tournaments? Does not compute. Phil saying it stimulates the frontal cortex is more likely.
  7. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Been Playing for as long as I can remember. Got more serious in high school, and walked on to my college team. Just signed up for GHIN for first time in years and currently at 1.2 What do you love about golf? Being outside, competing, being with family, and the thrill of hitting a great shot. Grew up playing with my parents. They are almost 70 now and still play together several times a week. Looking forward to playing with my kids the same way. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I follow several of the guys on Twitter, I'm obsessed with the game, and this seems to be an interesting forum. Where are you from? What is your home course? Fort Worth, Tx. Home course would be Rockwood (great muni) or GC at the Resort (where my parents live and play) What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best is tons of options. Still more courses that I haven't played than have played. Worst- Most courses are a good 20 minutes away from me, and several of them are cart only and not walkable. What do you do for a living? Industrial sales How’d you pick your user name? same as twitter handle, easy to remember
  8. First Name/State of Residence - Brock, Texas Current Drive specs Model/loft/shaft/Flex Tour Edge Exotics XCG7 Beta/Set at 10U/Ozik Matrix 7M3.1 Black Tie/ X-Flex Your handicap and driver swing speed, and do your regularly use any sort of LM for data collection: HCP 1.2/ Swing speed 115ish/ Occasionally use LM at PGA store, but don't have portable. Have you played a Tour Edge driver before, and what was your experience. I have been using my Tour Edge for 4 seasons, and it was a game changer. I tested against several name brands and it came out ahead. I was missing several to the right so I made a hosel adjustment and it got even better. Better carry distance/dispersion, etc. The hosel screw is stripped a bit so it rattles, but I still hit it well. I recently tested an S-Flex EXS (all that was available) against X Flex TM, Callaway, Cobra, and Ping, and the EXS held it's own, average ball speed around 150.
