    Lefty Thread

    Got a nice earlyish 9 holes in yesterday. We have had a lot of rain in Sweden this past week or so but the course did not feel as soft as I expected, sure the grass was wet and the bunkers super packed but I did not see any water in any bunkers or any water collected at the course. Now there is 17 days left before the greens are closed for the season and the winter greens will be in play so going to make the most of it as long as the weather allow. Btw did not make the putt... left it 2 inches short..
  2. Picked up a new shaft for my driver, ever since I bought a 3w I´ve felt that my driver shaft have been on the heavy side. Went to the local golf store and tried a few different drivers with different shafts/weights but felt that they were a bit to pricey and better to just get a new driver instead. But then I came across this beauty on Sweden's counterpart to Ebay for a steal. It is a Atmos tour spec 6s and so far it´s great.

    Had a nice round yesterday here in Sweden with temperature going below 50.. however the sun graced me with it´s presence so had a good time on the course anyway! Took a picture here at hole 11 where there is a huge down slope down to the green after the hump in the back of the picture, the aim is in the small opening between the trees in the middle of the picture. Also took a picture from the green at hole 14 with a beautiful view when the low sun got through the clouds and with the water tower in the far back. Just pure joy! And as a side note I hope to bring some cool pictures in the end of the month, there is going to be "night golf" at the course, it will be in the evening but it will be pitch black in Sweden at that time. Everyone with get 1 florescent ball, the tees and green will have some lights and the hole will have a light in it. The game is 7 holes and if you loose your ball you´re out.. It´s just for fun but hoping there will be an opportunity for some cool pictures! Will be the first time for me as well with the florescent ball.. anyone have any experience with them? My main concern is how well you will see it in the air and where it lands. If it will be easy to see 250 yards away or not, basically if I should go driver or play it safe to be sure not to loose the ball.

    No not the whole course. There is a lot of elevation up and down and one hole is even over a pond with a cliff on the opposite that you have to get over to get to the green, on these holes it is a bit more open. But then there is also some pretty flat holes where there is a lot of trees to get over/around and some holes have some strategic huge trees that could get you in real trouble. It is a fun course for that reason but it´s not the best taken care of course (I have a membership that allow me to play for free at 3 different courses and this is probably the worse taken care of) but they will rebuild the course for next year to be a 12 hole course so I just want to get a few more rounds in before it is too late. They plan to rebuild to save some money on maintenance and also make this a course for beginners and for those who feel 18 holes is to much but 9 is a bit to little and since they are changing the handicap system next year you are supposed to be able to register 12 hole rounds as well.

    A little lefty up this small hill.. about 140 yards and 13 yards elevation to the pin. Oh and btw.. the green is about 8 yards deep from this angle.. was happy to take an easy bogey after missed green left and left the first put just a few inches short. Been raining a lot here in Sweden this past week so the course has super soft fairways with zero roll out.. Anyways, it was a good Sunday funday.
  7. Bought a used Titleist 915F 3 wood with S70+ stiff shaft in superb condition, looked new! Just been able to get one quick session with it but so far so good. Getting those good condition used clubs in specific specs for me as a lefty is quite a rare find.. Atleast in Sweden.

    Lefty pic from Sweden, getting colder by the day.. hope to extend the season with warm clothes and will power.. This was a 7 iron from about 160 yards (to center green according to gps, pin far right and in the back) away from a blindspot behind a hill and some trees, pretty happy with the result. Missed the birdie putt though
  9. Just going to add my 2 cents to this. As I said earlier I tried a few different designs by 3d printing some line markers. Tried the regular straight line, the Eyeline Impact type design, a big plus sign at the top of the ball and a line with an arrowhead. I did like the Eyeline Impact design the best when I stood above the ball for sure. It was easy to line up my putter to the ball, however lining the ball up to the hole is a totally different beast. The process of lining the put from just behind the ball, then go back a few feet to check the line, to go back and adjust and then finally stand above the ball and feel totally wrong about the line from that angle had me abandon this little project of mine for now. I gave it quite a few practice sessions and a few full rounds of golf and without any hard data I feel my performance is worse with the line just because the feeling of the line being a fraction of a degree off and not feeling confident at all putting. So I don´t think this is for me. I might give this another try over the off season when putting indoors. But if I would feel more confident lining the ball this would probably help with putting a lot.

  11. I am using my Samsung Galaxy S10 with a battery case, sure it is a bit thicker then a normal phone case but I don´t really notice it. When in use the battery is def. not a problem, never been bothered with having the phone in my pocket while I play (left pocket and playing lefty). I also keep my scorecard in the phone so another reason to have the phone close at hand.
  12. I have been looking into trying a ball liner to see if it is something for me.. This looks very interesting to me but sadly they are a bit pricey and not even sure about shipping cost or if it is even available to Sweden. I do however have a friend with a 3D printer and since I´m working as a 3D model designer I think I will try a few different designs and see what I think. I´ll keep you updated with my thoughts and what design I prefer.
  13. I actually just thought about that right before I asked for the badge. Might have to try and find another pic to put up
  14. Could I please get the Lefty badge.
  15. Hello from the south of Sweden! 1. So I first got into golf this year, actually the very first time I held in a real golf club was April 30 this year. I am in my late 20s, have always enjoyed playing mini golf and come from a hockey background so wacking something with a stick is not new to me. A colleague at work asked if I wanted to come along and hit some balls at the range and I was in! I signed up for a weekend crash course at a local golf club mid may and since then I have played somewhere around 30 rounds (70% 18 hole, 30% 9 hole) both alone for practice and with friends or colleagues. I play as a lefty since that was the most natural given that I come from a hockey background. I´m not sure how it works in the rest of the world but in Sweden you start with a "club" handicap of 54 that you need to work down to a 36 before you can start playing by your self at any course, that was kinda quickly done and I now sit at 25,5 but going down almost every week. 2. What I love about golf is first of all the competitive aspect both against my own handicap but also to be able to compete with my colleagues that are in single digits handicap. It is a very cool sport/hobby that way, to be completely new and still be able to compete with people that played there whole lives is just cool, not a lot of other sports that is an option. I also love to be outside and walking in the beautiful nature that is a golf course. 3. I don´t know any other Spies just yet but maybe soon? I first found the golfspy site when I started to look for reviews, tips and information about equipment and then naturally found my way to the forum section. The forum seems so open and friendly so I signed up after a few weeks of just lurking around to be able to join the discussions. 4. So I´m from a small village in south of Sweden but currently live in Malmö, Swedens third largest city that is located at the very south of Sweden with a number of nice golf courses within a few minutes with car. I am member in a club with 3 courses that is a bit spread out just outside the city, very nice to be able to always find a tee time and to have some variation in courses. 5. The best thing with golf in my region must be the number of courses, I think I have around 70 courses inside 1,5h drive. Since I´m this new I haven´t found all that much that is bad, at least not specific to my region. The lack of selection for a lefty in golf shops is one.. But i guess that is not a regional issue. Not there fault that the majority of golf players play the wrong way.. 6. I work as a design manager at a small company, meaning I spend most of my days at a computer working with 3d cad modeling. 7. Gurra is just a nickname my friends call me. My name is Gustav so yea. See you all in the other threads on here!
  16. Ok, so I started playing golf with a complete beginners set that soon got replaced bit by bit. The latest that got added to the bag is a new iron set that I got at a discount the 5-P F9 irons. I really like the irons and feel that they added a lot of confidence and consistency to my game. I do plan to add the i4 to the set in a near future but I´m also looking to add new wedges since I still play with my "S" from the beginners set. That means that my wedges as of right now is a 44* PW and a 56* SW. I am looking at the GW from the f9 iron set that is at 49* and 2 more wedges, or skip the GW and get 3 wedges. I now ask you guys to help me, what gapping would you recommend? Any specific brands or models? What wedges and lofts do you f9 iron players have? I would like to add that I play lefty so the options is somewhat limited in some models/lofts. /Gurra
