  1. Is your wife still doing the protocols? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. Yeah....... need to tighten that proximity up for sure to take advantage of the distance off the tee. Is it distance or directional that is the problem? Sounds like distance from what you are saying.
  3. I enjoyed that webinar as well. SuperSpeed puts on phenomenal informationals. I game the G400 LST. It’s a beast! I think you’ll like it. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. Is the bounce the same on your 51* and 54*? Might be more bounce on the 51* which helps with fat shots. Looks like you play high-bounce wedges (I do as well), so maybe not a bounce difference issue.
  5. I to have struggled with fat shots with wedges. For me, it is often one of two things: 1) too much forward shaft lean through impact (remove the bounce of the wedge and if you are fractionally, you will hit fat) 2) not extending my body through impact (you know from my SuperSpeed that I am working on jumping aka extending through the shot rather than staying down too long)
  6. How do you like the Big Moss putting mat? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Week 3 day 1 for me today. Did not feel fast. Some days you just feel like The Flash and others you don’t. I’ve been having trouble sleeping lately, which could be part of the problem. I try to do my sessions in the shade to beat the Texas heat. It was a heat index of 95 degrees at 10am today... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  9. Great ideas! I’ve been thinking about using those bendable twist ties as an aid as well. It would be for lots of different path or strike drills. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Not a perspective, scientific fact!!! [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I get it, but to be fair, early to mid 20's are the prime for males. With my two young kids and everything else, it definitely feels like a big drop from my early 20s. I was in a basketball gym the other day with the kiddos and I was looking up at the 10ft rim thinking, "I used to be able to grab that?!?!" It was sad. lol
  12. I've been known to drive par 4's and three-putt for par, and get on par 5's in two and three put for par....... different strengths indeed!
  13. Based on my driver speed, I should be swinging the sticks as fast as follows: That’s what is so frustrating, because I’m not anywhere close to those numbers. I know I keep saying that I’ll focus on post-test GC Quad data, but I’m very internally competitive with myself. I mean from a logical standpoint, it just doesn’t seem to make any sense that I can swing the driver 127mph on a dry swing and the same day not get a green swing over 132mph.

  14. Perhaps. I’m 34. Not in my prime anymore but certainly not hurting too bad yet [emoji23]. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. Modified Level 2 Week 2 video is now live! Cue House of Pain's "Jump Around" song for this one.
  16. I've got the two-tone ball as well and I sharpied one half on another one that I made sure I salt-water balanced first. Those are phenomenal for working on pure roll. I've also seen the rubber bands work well. I used socks last night to work as a gate for my golf swing to pass through (I've been missing off the toe a lot lately). Great examples!
  17. I thought it would be fun to see what fellow Spies have created for their own training purposes. I was up late last night (couldn't sleep) so I decided to work on my putting. I have a tendency to miss near the toe of the putter. I recalled seeing devices you could put on your putter face to help strike the middle more often. So I decided to make my own. What I started with was just masking tape on all but the very center of the putter face. That wasn't really providing the feedback I wanted, so I put two pennies underneath the tape. Now that gives you some amazing feedback. Miss the middle and hit the pennies and the ball goes offline and you hear KLANK. Here is a video of it: What are some things you all have come up with to improve your game?
  18. Just finished Day 3 of Level 2 Week 2. I had my kids with me and forgot my driver. I don't think it would have mattered much though. Everything was reading slow. PRGR was showing down below 120mph for the blue stick and mid 110's for the red on some swings. Had a few read 25 and 43mph also. Some days it's just funky. Regardless, I'll have the review video up by the end of the day.
  19. [emoji23] if it turns into anything I’d set prices. I just care to see people improve. We’re all chasing something in golf. More fun to chase together than as a Wolfpack of one. [emoji1363] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  22. Awesome! If you are averaging 250-260yds, you are above average. As I said to @tchat07, the average scratch male golfer hits driver something like 250yds. 4000rpm of backspin is WAAAAAAY too high. Hopefully the fitted driver knocks that spin down for you.
  23. Trust me, speed without clubface control/center contact is wasted energy. I know SuperSpeed has clubface drills they have people do (I need to do them myself). I was swinging it 123-124mph on GC Quad in my Level 1 post-test, but I had swings that would only travel 280-300yds because of all the backswpin and lack of centered contact. When I hit middle of the face, 350yds. My fitter who was a college golfer was swinging like 108-110 and was hitting it 300yds dead center of the fairway because he could hit the middle of the face. If the stronger grip gives you more consistent centered contact and keeps the ball in play, go with it. The average driving distance for scratch golfers is only like 250yds I believe (click link).
  24. @tchat07 It's like you are cupping and pronating (left palm facing the ground) the left arm in the downswing. When combined with an already weak grip, extra pronating on the downswing will further open the clubface: That is the recipe for high slice-ville. Fast swing speed exacerbates the problem.
