  1. I've had great results with this app on my iPhone8. I set it up so it's less than a foot off the ground on a small tripod. It's 4 feet behind the ball and 1 foot in front. I'm outside hitting into a net for the most part and the numbers seem pretty close to what I would expect for distance on each club. I did hit a few shots into a field with an 8 iron and the result was within 2 or 3 yards as shot by my laser after I walked out to the ball. The weather has really sucked lately, but when it warms up a little more, I'm planning on doing some more testing for distance. It would be great if someone that had access to a Trackman or GCQuad could do a comparison for spin and other numbers. Hint, hint, MGS! Overall, very much worth the monthly 6 bucks for the subscription. -Be safe all!

  3. I'm really looking for some way to help get something towards improvement out of a range session. For example, I hit 80 balls the other day and tried to break it down between clubs. I felt like my irons were rockin, but my driver, not so much. My misses seemed to be all over the page. My focus going into the session was to work on keeping my left wrist flat, so I'm sure that was part of it. I'm looking for a way to gauge improvement over the winter. (please don't say judge it on the course, I'm looking at two inches of snow right now.)
  4. Does anyone track their range sessions and if so, what data do you track? I've been wanting to target my practice a little more and am thinking if I somehow track each shot, it'll not only slow me down so i don't just hammer a bucket down range, but also track if what I'm actually doing actually yields results. I was thinking having some type of sheet to note club, fat, thin, slice, hook, straight, and maybe a note on what change I was trying on that shot. Thanks!
  5. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? My Uncle introduced me to golf in the early 80s as a kid. I was never any good and only played 2-3 times per year. In the past few years I started playing in more charity scrambles and have had a lot of fun. Last year I started getting more serious and this past summer I played about 50 rounds and another dozen charity outings. I don't have an official handicap, but my swingxswing app says I'm an 18.5. What do you love about golf? It's a break from work and something to focus energy on. I love being on the course and the challenge is addictive. I got my wife a set and some lessons and now she'll sometimes wake up on a Saturday morning and say, "hey, you want to go golfing?" Yes, I do... What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Don't know of other spies, but I'll asking. I like the independent reviews and test data. Where are you from? What is your home course? Sidney, Michigan. No real home course. There are 3 within 15 minutes, so I rotate. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Weather. It's November 2nd right now and it's cold, wet, and blustery. April can't get here fast enough. What do you do for a living? Law enforcement How’d you pick your user name? The shank part because it's a golf term, I actually rarely shank it. The dog part came from me being a K9 handler.
