  1. Scott/Castle Rock, CO/USA Scotty Cameron Select Newport 2.5 I would like to test the Heppler ZB3. I love the classic blade look, and believe that it would match my arcing putting stroke very well.
  2. It was $300 for 2 hours, but ended up being about 3 hours, because Mike just loves teaching and talking about golf. This was in Denver at Green Valley Ranch. The golf school there has recently become affiliated with Malaska Golf, learning to teach his method. He was there to play in the Colorado Senior Open, so he put on a golf clinic. The format was 6 guys with him and the 2 golf school coaches. He started us on the putting green, then the chipping green, then the full swing on the range. I got the last spot available, and I'm glad I did. $300 for 3 hours with Mike was a steal. He typic
  3. I was fortunate enough to attend a clinic with Mike Malaska last weekend. In 5 minutes, he taught me something that completely changed my golf swing - how the hips should work. I've worked with other instructors, read books and magazines, watched a million YouTube videos. They all say similar things...."Fire the hips". "Rotate the hips". "Get your hips towards the target". Following that advice just caused more swing flaws, like sliding too much, rotating my hips too early, rotating incorrectly by focusing on my trail side hip/leg. All of that was wrong. Mike basically did with me what h

  5. 10.5 handicap in Colorado Srixon Z785, 165 8i carry I'm a current customer of Sub 70, owning a set of fairway woods, and a hybrid. Very pleased with their product quality, and customer service is second to none.
  6. Scott, Castle Rock, CO I have used the ShotScope device, but it leaves a lot to be desired Laser and TheGrint iOS app
  7. I like having both. I use ShotScope to track everything, so having the GPS watch on my hand is good for a quick yardage. A lot of the course I play have pretty severe elevation changes, so the laser helps with that, and for getting exact distances to various targets. I also use The Grint app on my phone on occasion. It helps to see an overlay of the hole, and to be able to choose what club to hit to get the yardage I want for the next shot. It all just depends on the pace of play. If we're moving along and not waiting to hit shots, then I'll just use GPS. If it's a 5 hour round, I'll use the o
  8. Castle Rock, CO - 42 years old 103 mph Average Absolutely will see this through. Have been looking to purchase this system for awhile now, cost is just holding me back.
  9. What models were you hitting? I'm just wondering if the distance difference was due to lofts. The Apex 7i is 30.5*. The MP-20 MB is 34*, and the other MP-20 models are 32*. I'm in the market for some news irons, so I'm curious what others are learning. I hit the Apex irons at a demo day over the summer. I just didn't care for the feel. Could have been the shafts, though. They were pretty limited on shaft options. I'm going in for a fitting in a couple of weeks, and will be looking at Mizunos. I hit some MP-18s the other day, and they felt fantastic. I haven't had Mizunos since the MP-60s
  10. I bought a cheap one off Amazon. The ball is great, but the lanyard sucks. Might have to pick up the real thing from Tour Striker.
  11. What is your favorite training aid, and what swing flaw did you get it to help with? I have struggled forever with over swinging, and tried everything to correct it. It has been such a struggle that even a lob wedge could get past parallel. I finally found something that has helped tremendously - the Gabe Golf swing trainer. It is a 7 iron with ball bearings in the shaft. You swing it to the top, and pause while the balls loudly slide down, then swing through. It has changed my swing dramatically. Better top position and better tempo. It really helped break my swing into 2 distinct part
  12. I have had mine for about a month, and have mixed feelings about it. For pitches and short wedge shots, I love it. It really forces you to rotate correctly. I was pretty excited after going through the first 4 or 5 protocols. Unfortunately, once I progressed to trying to make a full swing, I didn't find it helpful at all. It seems pretty much impossible for me to make solid contact swinging full speed with it attached. My scores actually started going up after using the Planemate. I'm sure it's not the fault of the training aid, but the fault of my bad swing. I tend to swing all of my clubs lo
