  1. LOL. Thank you sir. Yeah....sounds like a lot. Truth is....I’m just now getting back to where I once was at a 6 handicap. I had hip replacement surgery 8/16....so, didn’t play much golf for about a 3 year period. Fast forward several years and I now live on the 18th green of a country club and have my own cart.....which equates to lots of practice time. The weight loss and the strength gain has equated to better move through the ball and my ball striking is pretty crisp right now.
  2. I'm gonna try to keep this short. First....I've never been grossly over weight or obese. I'll be turning 50 in July 2020. On Thanksgiving morning of 2018, I hauled my ass to the gym and have done it 4-5 times per week all year. In just over a week from now, will be 1 year since "I" decided to change. This is the key point....I didn't decide to go on a diet....I didn't decide to try a new wonder pill.....I drug my butt out of bed and went to the gym. It was hard at first......but, started seeing results just inside of 60 days. Started at 212 lbs. Today, I weighed in at 192.4 lbs and down 2" in waist size. I have lost lots of fat and am up in muscle. My strength and flexibility is WAY better and I'm sleeping like a baby again. I haven't changed my diet all that much really.....just making better decisions. Staying away from bread as often as I can (But I friggin love bread). I honestly can't remember the last time I felt this good....would have to go back to my late 20's for sure. Coincidentally, my golf game is as good as it's been in a long time. Handicap has been trending down for several months. Started 2019 as a 12...as of today, I'm at 6.6. I attribute a lot of this to my weight loss and increase in flexibility. Lastly, I'd like to add that this has happened by lifting weights, not walking on a treadmill. I hate cardio and typically use a bike or elliptical 10-15 minutes (rigorous) a couple times per month. I get plenty heart rate elevation lifting. Good luck to any and all who make an attempt improving your health!! It's a mindset....convince yourself your going to make a lifestyle change....not go on a diet!
  3. Played in a Wednesday night scramble all summer (points system) and made the top 10 play off. Highest score is eliminated until 1 man left standing....much more pressure than I anticipated!! Hole: 1 - Short Par 4 - Iron off the Tee, GIR, 2 putt par - on to the next tee 2 - Shortish Par 4 - Driving iron off the tee and pull hook it left OB (my big miss, but haven't hit it in MONTHS).. Re-tee with same club hitting 3, stripe it down the middle, green from there, 1 putt for bodey - on to the next tee 3 - Par 3 (176ish) - stripe a 7 iron right at pin, lip out birdie putt, take par and move on to the next tee 4 - Par 4 - dogleg right - Hit 3W (normally my weapon and very reliable). Guess I stood up on it slightly....hit it about 3 feet off the ground, over water hazard and embedded in the bank (lost ball). Drop hitting 3 again. Hit a PW within 18", make putt and move onto next tee 5-7 - played well and remained in the race 8 - Par 5. I'm in the final 2. Played a lot with my opponent and beat him very regularly....I hit a huge slice OB to the right and am eliminated in 2nd place. Moral of the story.....I was playing like crap, but somehow managed to grind it out and make the final pair! This game is HARD!!
  4. I've played the Snell Black for a little over a year now.....LOVE IT. For the money....it's probably the best ball I've hit. To answer your question....I tried the X and didn't like it. Felt a little hard and "clicky" to me and definitely wasn't any longer for me over the black. Usually will play a ball I find on the course next against the snell (lots of ProV's and V1's, Bridgestone and Taylormades). Never had one out perform it.
  5. I need to find somewhere in NE FL to try those Ventus shafts!!
  6. I put one on a Scotty and love it. I have since put an Evnroll ER5 in the bag, which has a different grip on it. Highly considering putting the gravity grip on it because I liked it that much.

  8. Ping 410 is the real deal. My club had a demo day Friday evening. Went over with ZERO intentions of buying, as I went through my entire bag earlier this year at the Performance Center at TPC Sawgrass. Just wanted to check things out and hit a few clubs (primarily wedges). Visited each tent for a few minutes and chatted with the rep's. Ping guys talked me into hitting the Ping 410 LST (I've gamed several different LST Ping drivers over the years). Gave them the specs of my gamer - TM M6 Tensing Orange Stiff. Proceeded to tee a few up. Liked the way the head looked and felt, but first shaft didn't work for me. After a few different shafts....I proceeded to rope drives over the net at the end of the range. Club felt incredible and felt as if I "couldn't" miss. Again....had no intentions of buying any clubs....especially a new driver. BUT....this was just too good. Grabbed my TM and performed a little test of my own. Hit 12 balls with each stick...……...well....now I own a new 410 LST. Anyone looking for a nice TM M6? LOL

  10. Congrats gentlemen. Looking forward to hearing about the irons and if they improved your game!!
  11. Dale Brassfield/Florida Handicap - 9.4 Current irons in Play - 19’ Callaway Apex/Apex Pro The carry distance of the your 7 iron - 173 Thanks for the opportunity guys!
  12. My local Costco had the gloves in July....so picked up a pack. My impression...…….WOW. One of the best gloves I've had and for the money...this is a NO BRAINER! Went back to stock up more while they had them....3 pk for $14.95. I'm in NE FL and it's been hot.....been rotating between the first 3 gloves (drying during round). All 3 are still in great shape with little to no wear after a dozen rounds and many range sessions.
  13. Morning fellas - Thanks for posting this video....it REALLY helped me. First, I'm 49 and have a 9.6 Handicap. I've been struggling with my Driver for the past few weeks. Low and left, which is not normal for me at all. My tempo would get out of whack, causing me to swing harder and harder which just caused things to get worse as the round went on. Went to the range after work and really focused on staying relaxed and generating a good swing tempo. My swing thought was simply keeping tempo in check. I used another "tip" from a thread here, which was to repeat "Ernie Els"....Ernie in the backswing and Els in the downswing. Didn't get to hit my driver on the range, as tees were all the way forward....but I was bouncing my 3 wood off the net with a nice little draw. Decided to try the driver....so I went to the course and played a few holes. Played 4 holes and hit 2 drives per hole using the direction from this video and using the "Ernie Els" swing thought. Absolutely crushed all 8 right down my target line with a slight right to left (5 yards) draw!!! Really excited about this, as the rest of my game has been pretty solid and looking to get my handicap consistently back down around 6. So, again, thanks Russtopherb for posting up this video!
