  1. Yes, I saw that also. Well I ended up buying the BlackJack. I've only played with it for 27 holes but I really like the head, the heavy head, the sound and feel. I don't like, at all, the stock shaft. So I'm getting a BGT Stability Tour shaft put in. Hoping that will be the right shaft. The stock shaft is just not robust enough for the 380 gram head. It feels whippy. Yeah, in a putter. During a lag putt it feels like the head is left behind. Weird. And maybe it is not at all whippy. It just feels that way to me. My fitter said he has not heard that once. But the shape and muted matte finsih
  2. Have you had any concerns with the weight being too much for the stock shaft? I've been considering upgrading to a BGT or KBS shaft. The shaft seems to flex slightly on longer lag putts. Don't think it should do that.
  3. Hello!, That't too bad about there not being any fitting locations. Sometimes they go to courses to do off site fittings. Take a look at that. It's hard to order something sight unseen. I totally get that.
  4. The $15,000 golf equipment raffle I think it was.
  5. I have the same thought. I thought there was a giveaway contest for members and donors. Did that ever happen?
  6. Is there a way to put a clear protective layer over it to keep it from chipping? I see a lot on eBay have chips on the white alignment area at the face as well as on the tail edge in the blue. I really want one but the price is steep for something that might have the primary feature I like, alignment stripe, getting ugly
  7. I’ve been reading that the paint job on all Spider X models does not last and that the white visual line starts to chip near the face. I’ve even seen it on used models on sale on eBay. Anyone else experience this?
  8. For every three to four rounds I walk I get another round in with the money I saved. Especially during the winter early spring here in Phoenix/Scottsdale I can only afford to walk the muni courses.
  9. Carts are also good in the 105+ degree heat. They keep a breeze when you drive and if you soak your sleeves and neck periodically that breeze helps. The cart also provides shade and keeps a true cooler with ice and the gallon of water I need and my Gatorade cold and my wet towels cold. I walk in the winter season here in Phoenix. However some of the courses in the outlying suburbs have literally half a mile to 3/4 miles between the hole. So if it is that type of course or higher than 100 degrees I ride. But prefer to walk when I can and when it’s not dangerous to do so.
  10. Yeah, I get that. I also thought things were on a two year cycle so to cut it off after just one year doesn't make sense to me. Also, they have so many models that I never actually see on the course that I would have thought you cut a model out that's been around before one that has only been out a year. Oh well. Just surprised is all.
  11. It’s official. Odyssey will not make the #10 putter anymore. This is a putter that was only a year old!! Any info or ideas or conspiracy on why they would cut the production after just a year?!
  12. Well it’s official! No more #10 to be produced!! Why?!?!?! Any thoughts?
  13. Hey thanks guys! I stated in the video I am going TM Spider X. However, it’s going to come in at $380. My teacher salary barely covers that. Some of the Stroke Lab Black putters are on sale for $200. Hoping for a Christmas miracle I wished the Black Ten could be found with the ability to have it custom ordered with my specs and that it too would be price dropped like some other Black 10. I like the look of the Spider X more. But it didn’t score as well and is more costly. So was looking for alternatives. I know I’ll feel more confident with the view of the Spider X more at address an
  14. Has anyone heard about the model #10 from stroke love being discontinued? They stopped taking custom orders of it. Their website only has left handed and 33”. Seems weird to me to discontinue a model only one year later. But why stop taking orders unless they stopped making them. any ideas? Thanks.
  15. PGA Tour Superstore Putter Fitting with Miguel for Brown Bear Golf. This video leads to a big gamble, as Miguel will order a putter spending the most money he's spent on any club ever! This video explores data, the Science, and the Physics of putting. Data is acquired using the Science and Motion or S.A.M. putt lab. So why another putter fitting after conducting one at PXG headquarters? Unlike PXG I get to try multiple brands and styles of putter. We try Ping, Odyssey, and Taylormade. You might be surprised what I pick based on all the data I got.

After this video you'll have a better understanding of how a putter fitting can help you dial in your stroke and perhaps find a putter better suited to your individual game. There was so much data discussion that I may even offer an extended cut of this video where the talk and look at data gets more focus. Here at Brown Bear Golf our goal is to inform you and be a resource in your golf gear research!

     

     

  17. Wellness for Coffee review by Miguel with Brown Bear Golf. My car woke me up at 4:44 am so i decided to get up and make a cup of my brand new coffee! Why not make a review of a new product by Phil Mickelson? How does it taste? What is “The Good Stuff”? Let's grind, brew, taste and find out!

  18. Love the engagement here. All are making valid and reasonable points.
  19. I agree with you. I have a rain/wind jacket with a hood and luckily it has three different draw strings to tighten and mitigate its movement. The overwhelming majority of the discussion is focused on a more inclusive culture and industry overall for the benefit of the longevity and growth of the game. Thanks for the engagement.
  20. Hoodies in Golf! When will golf shed the stereotype of its people being judgemental and antiquated? Miguel from Brown Bear Golf leads a discussion on style, inclusion, and starting a business in the golf industry. Guests are DeBrandon, CEO/owner of Yooto'pea Golf as well as David, CEO/owner of Steeze Golf. This is an amazing discussion about how a prosperous future of the game and industry is not necessarily an absolute given. If the powers that be don't open their minds then the players that might be might not open their wallets. The industry needs to know that golfers of color and all so
