    Shorter Shafts??

    I am 5'6" and I cut down my irons 1/2 inch about 6 years ago. It was one of the best things I've done. Other than that, I agree with most of the other comments and suggestions.
  2. I am similar to Alf S. I change my grips every off season. I usually do it myself because I enjoy doing it. It is a fun winter activity to connect with my clubs and get me excited. I used to be a GP guy, then I went hard for Lamkin for many years. The downside to Lamkin is that they seemed to get very slick when they are worn. I switched to Winn Dritac 2 years ago because a friend had them and liked them, so I gave them a try on my fairways first. The old Winn's from 20 or so years ago seemed to wear out quickly. That is not true of the DriTac. I have the same "Pros" as above. I have not had the wet condition "Cons" though. Mine have been fine in rain. I do use rain gloves. They are a softer feeling grip. I happen to like that now (not always) and I can play round after round without any hand problems. This is important because I take several golf trips a year where I will play up to 8 days in a row. I have to say that I am a strong Winn convert now and for anytime in the near future. I do like having a color other than black too.
  3. Old Head (Ireland) #12. If you are not familiar with Old Head - google it. It is one of the coolest golf spots on earth. I don't even remember what I shot. It was incredible!
  4. I agree. I was lucky enough to play once in some light rain. It is something that I will never forget. Just hitting and walking and smiling and smiling and smiling.
  5. May I make a suggestion: get a routine that you use on every drive. You said you tinker with location, stance etc. Figure your best way to line everything up the same way everytime. Set club, set feet, confirm grip, hit ball. This has helped me tremendously. I recommend it. Just my thought.
  6. We did a similar trip 4 or 5 times. There are so many good courses there, it is ridiculousl This year, we are finally play Pinehurst resort. I have enjoyed all of my trips there. I am looking forward to playing #2 for the first time. I think the area is one of the best value buddy trips. Great courses. All close to each other. Good rental options too.

  8. Steve / Elmhurst IL I used a hitting net that I owned for the first time this last year. I bought it last winter. It seems harder to set up than it should be. I have not used a LM. Honestly, I think it is critical to have one if you want to make the most use out of it. Otherwise it is hard to tell the likely flight pattern. The net is good to get some swings in, but it could be so much more with a LM. I am considering one this winter. Your product looks like a nice product. Good luck!

  11. Steve / Elmhurst, Il / USA Taylormade Ardmore 3 Ping Tyne 3. This style seems to be the most accurate for me. I like the sight lines and the balance. The offset mallet has made me switch to a mallet instead of the traditional Anser style that i played for years.
  12. ow long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I started when I was in my mid-20's. My interest accelerated dramatically when i hit my 40's and technology started to help my game. Now I am an addict. What do you love about golf? I love being with my friends. Being outdoors in fresh air. The competition of beating my previous scores or trying to lower my handicap. I have been on several European trips to places that I never would have seen if not for my love of golf and the good group of buddies that I am in with. My wife generally goes with me for a few days, she leaves...I play golf with my buds, everyone wins! I love the technology and the ability to improve despite getting older. I like the details as well as the overall good feeling of being out. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I have been aware of MGS for years. I have "lurked" and never signed up. I am finally signing up. I do not know any other spies. Where are you from? What is your home course? Western Suburbs of Chicago. My current favorites are The Preserve at Oak Meadows and Village Links, but I play a wide variety of courses. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Summer is glorious. Winter sux. What do you do for a living? I own a small sales company. How’d you pick your user name? My name is somewhat common so i chose one more in line with my city.
