  1. Got a Wellputt mat to compliment the new Puttout trainer! Just barely enough space in the spare bedroom lol. Forgive the poor lighting and the mess

    Getting a bit stir crazy, but all things considered feeling blessed with our situation. I'm working from home, but there hasn't been any indication of layoffs or furlough yet. Wife's a nurse, so job security's never been better for her. So far her floor isn't seeing COVID patients, but I guess most of her co-workers are thinking they're going to see a big spike in patients either next week or the one following.

    I don't know about y'all, but this is so surreal. Some moments hanging out with my wife I completely forget anything's going on at all, then others it feels like the most bizarre thing I've ever experienced, with grocery stores half cleared out and a ton of people staying home. Such a weird back and forth.
  4. Finally bought me a Puttout Pressure Putt trainer, now I just need a putting mat! Any suggestions?

    Sorry, I'm not really tracking with you here. Could you elaborate on what those graphs are indicating?

    Sub70 golf

    @halliedog with your experience, knowledge, and enjoyment in building clubs, it's certainly possible DTC isn't the most ideal business model for you. Absolutely NOTHING wrong with that; every single consumer is going to have varying preferences and things they're looking for, both in the product and in the company they're purchasing from. I know I don't have the experience or equipment in club making like you or others have, so for me a place like Sub70 is an incredibly viable model. In all likelihood, they are where I'm buying my next set of irons, because their prices, offerings, and outstanding customer service. I do appreciate your investigative spirit, but I think some of your posts might be read in a more aggressive way than you're intending. I see your new around here and hope you stick around for a while to come. I know MGS has been a great place for me to interact with some really great people with similar passion for the game, and all sorts of golf experiences.

  8. Yeah, even in good weather I've never been very impressed anyway. But I didn't have quite as bad luck with plugging in fairways, and the majority of the East greens weren't terribly water-logged. Definitely shaggy and slow though. But I'm right there with ya, the rest of the area courses should be opening up pretty soon here, and should be in better shape.
  9. I don't think I missed a single putt past the hole all day haha
  10. Was going to hit the range, but with some nice weather I last minute checked FaceBook to see if the course up the street was going to be open; sure enough, it opened as I pulled in! First round of the year, went 45-45: 90. 2/14 FIR (), 6/18 GIR, 34 putts. Felt good to know what I've been primarily working on over the off-season (irons & wedges/ball striking) was possibly the best it's ever been. I was really shaky off the tee, and putted pretty poorly as well, but can't complain for my first time out! And boy, did it feel great to be outside with the sun shining and just a sweatshirt on. And had a random fellow Spy sighting of @edingc as well!
  11. Glad you're getting the chance to check these irons out! I've been trying to decide between Maltby, Sub70 or Hogan's for an iron upgrade myself. Good luck, and thanks for the updates!
  12. Good for you for getting out there already! Hopefully there weather only continues to warm up, and you keep seeing improvements to your game!
  13. Certainly doesn't feel like a coincidence!
  14. Thanks everyone!! For a Tuesday night in February, it was a pretty darn good day
  15. I went in for my first ever lesson back in early December, and my instructor had me work on widening out my backswing. I was wayy off plane at first, which surprised me. Worked on that at home for a few weeks, then went back in for lesson #2 last week. Really pleased with the progress from the first session! Our second lesson he pointed out that I don't quite turn my hips early enough, so I'll be adding that in to staying on plane as well. We also took a look at my putting stroke, which I was pleasantly surprised with. It turns out I set up quite open, and then have a tendency to pull putts, but they were pretty consistent pulls. I guess that counts for something! Definitely anxious for the Spring so I can test out some of these changes on a real course, instead of artificial turf ranges and living room carpet.
  16. Particularly the last few months, I feel like Shiels is getting very click-baity. Not a huge fan of that sort of content myself. Really enjoy TXG's deep dives into equipment, although I get they might be a bit too long for some. I find it really interesting and think they do a very professional job. Tough for me to hate Crossfield either, he shoots it pretty straight.
  17. Dynasties are great for any sport, whether they annoy fans or not. It generates a ton interest to see if someone can finally knock a team off the top spot, and creates a ton of people rooting against that dynasty. I'm sure there were a ton of people cheering to see the Pats dynasty "over", just like everyone (except their own fan base) has been cheering for anybody except Bama lately. Same with Golden State Warriors, same with old school Yankees. But there's no question, the Patriots have dominated the NFL for an unprecedented length of time, division aside.
  18. Here's some putter reviewing for your New Year's pleasure! My Stage 2 is up! Check it out:
  19. Yeah, that was quite the putt to keep them alive. US looks like they might be stumbling to the finish line unless they tidy things up the last few holes...
  20. Great question. I've fiddled around with that, but haven't tracked the stats to compare. I don't trust my consistency to deliver the face how I'd be trying to do the test justice, but it does feel way better off the Evnroll. The Cushin feels awful when you mishit it, and goes nowhere. Biggest difference I could feel was the ER2 didn't lose nearly the distance on those off center strikes. It was hard for me to tell how much left to right difference there was between the two, because I couldn't quite tell how much was my stroke potentially delivering the face non-square on the intentional off center hits.
  21. Jeez, those are insane. I haven't had much exposure, but those are by far the thinnest and most intimidating address pics of any iron I've seen
  22. He's saying it's more important to be putting that to be hunting pins. Which, is generally true for any mid+ hdcp golfer. Also takes into account that putting is much lower risk than chipping/pitching. No duffed putts. If it's true that your chipping is that much better than your putting, you're in a great spot. Because putting is the easiest thing to get better at. If you really improve your putting and maintain a great short game, your scores should drop quickly. That's probably the lowest hanging fruit. Turn two putt bogeys into up and down pars. Improving short game is a lot easier than building or rebuilding a more consistent full swing. If you're putting yourself in such a bad position off the tee that you consistently need to take drops, that might be the exception. Penalties kill the score, as I know all too well;) in that case, see if you can get some lessons and focus on really tightening the dispersion for your driver.
