  2. Brock - Texas 1.2 - 115 mph Titleist Pro V1 Haven't previously played Srixon
  3. Joe, howdy from TX! I joined MGS a few weeks ago for similar reasons. I visit Tulsa/Jenks every few months to see the in-laws and have been impressed with the public courses. I heard White Hawk closed recently, but have played the Muni's- Page Belcher, LaFortune, Southlakes, and Blackjack a few times each, and have been generally pleased with the conditions of the courses up there.
  4. I guess those water-logged Chrome Softs I got weren't that good a deal after all. I will reiterate potentially the most important point in the whole piece which is to play the same ball consistently to get the best results. If you do switch away from Callaway, whether it be to Titleist, Snell, Bridgestone, etc. you should expect at least a 2-3 round adjustment period to get the feel/distances calibrated before you see improvements in score.
  5. Some people are saying many of the longest players such as Bruce Koepka and Justin Johnson are actually using a Pinnacles that have been re-logo'd to Titleist and Taylormade.
  6. The best balls definitely come in 15 packs. Surprisingly the white went 1.7 yards farther than the yellow.
  7. A unique feature of this ball discovered last week is that it is actually water-proof, unlike balls played by several other top players.
  8. Brock Texas Odyssey Sabertooth with Superstroke Slim 2.0 grip Depends on the day
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

  14. 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
  15. 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.
