    I had an issue about 2 years ago when really trying to stripe the ball in practice but not had any issues since. With Uk restrictions for about 9 out of the last 12 months I've hardly swung at all, so guessing my golfing muscles have atrophied and need building up a little to with stand the forces of a full swing.

    I had shoulder surgery last year and it wasn't until then that I realized the importance of stretching. I won't play or practice without doing a 5 minute stretching routine. Arm circles, hold the shaft in both hands palms-up and raise the shaft over your head, raise your hand above your head and then try to scratch the middle of your back (hold for 10 seconds and switch hands). Do 10 reps of these and it should help. If you experience a sharp pain when doing the stretches, go to a Dr.

  2. In the fall I purchased a combo set of irons from Sub70. 639CB PW-7, 699Pro 5&6, both with Aldila NVGraphite shafts. I've used the clubs for maybe 10 rounds and I love them. They've exceeded my expectations. The feel is great, I've gained a few yards from my old Ping i10s, but the accuracy and ease of use are great.  I've already promised my 17-year-old son a set when the weather gets a bit warmer.

    There are a few clubs in my bag that I've been looking to replace, specifically the hybrid (old TM TP model) and maybe a putter. My question is, has anyone tried the Sub70 hybrid or one of the putters?  The JB wedge, looks pretty cool as well, but I don't need a wedge just yet. 

    I like supporting the little guy, and their customer service is so good, that I would like to give them the sale.

    So figure its time for an update at it hit 40 this today, the first time in probably more than 2 months. Got out there to check the speed and how it is keeping up since I have been taking a bit of a break. Well I can confirm that the speed is still there and that the warm temperatures really help things out. I was hitting 110 out of the gate and even got up to 113 which is a big number for me. Feeling encouraged to keep it easy until things get a bit warmer again and then hit the ground running. Still been lifting some, doing some ab work, and still running. I will keep everyone posted and likely move this more to a game improvement thread in the future.

    Nice job, keep it going. The warmer weather was great yesterday. Went to the backyard for some dry swings and it was awesome. Hoping the snow in NJ melts soon.

    This is a common misnomer.  Face balanced putters close FASTER than putters with toe hang.  

    Ultimately it comes down to how the golfer reacts to the feelings the putter gives, but the science of toe hang (more weight in the toe) means closing down the rate of rotation.  Face balanced putters rotate closed faster.

    Is there such thing as heel weighted putters with more weight in the heel. The same way move weight in the heel of a driver produces a draw bias.

  5. I'm looking for a new driver now. I plan to hit all of them, Ping, TM, CAll, Srixon, Titleist and cobra. Already hit Ping Max & SFT and loved both of them. I think the SFT was a little better for me, but I will hit them again. Next up on the list is Titleist.

  6. Hello everyone - I'm looking to get back in shape after a shoulder surgery and a year of not taking care of myself. Specifically I'm looking into Yoga since I am very tight and have lost a lot of flexibility. Has anyone used a good Yoga for golfers program. I found something called GolfBodyRX which focuses on dynamic stretching. Any advice or feedback is welcome.

     

  7. I would love to test this product. I just purchased a new set of Sub70 irons and this would be a great way to dial-in my yardages. I already have an indoor setup, a backyard setup with net and there are multiple ranges nearby with heaters.

    • Kyle/Midland Park
    • iPhone 8 Pro
    • I have both indoor and outdoor setups and use each frequently
    • I will use a net indoors and in my backyard. No net when I go to the range
  8. Thanks for all the feedback guys. I am pretty sure most of my problem is mental. When go to the short game area and practice chipping I look great with tons of confidence. When I get on the course, it is a different story. The frustrating part is that I used to be really good a chipping. I think I will continue practicing the cross handed chip in basement for a while and get some lessons in the spring. It will be an interesting journey to say the least. 

  9. My name is Kyle and I have the chipping yips. I probably lose 4-5 shots per round chipping. Recently I played with a guy who was chipping cross handed (left hand low for RH players) and he said he decided to try it because he also suffered from the yips. I haven't tried it on the course yet, just my backyard and basement carpet, but I can see why it might work. At least for me it helps keep the left wrist firm.

    Has anyone tried cross hand chipping and what have the results been?  Any feedback is welcome.

    I tell anyone I know that is looking for clubs to give them a try.

    They are great, but I only have limited swings with them so I am still trying to dial in my distances.  Praying to get a few more rounds in before the cold weather hits NJ.

    Awesome! I'm in the market for the same setup. Which graphite shafts were fitted/recommended at PGASS? And which graphite shafts are in your Sub70 irons? Thanks for the info. Congrats on your new irons!

    I was fitting for the UST Recoil 95 Stiff shafts. Sub70 put me in the Aldila NV Iron Stiff. Good luck.

  12. I just went through the process. If you live near a PGA Superstore, go through the Tour Van fitting process. It's about $50, but well worth it. The process is about 90 minutes and you will hit all sorts of club/shaft combinations. I would highly recommend it. I opted to buy Sub70 irons which you can't buy in stores. They recommended a set for me based on my fitting results. I couldn't be happier.

    If you don't live near PGA superstore, Golf Galaxy does fittings but I don't think its as elaborate.

    What a timely post this is!  I was just talking to a coworker about sub70's.  I'm seriously thinking of pulling the trigger on a set.  I've heard nothing but good things about them.

    Go to their site and get some demo clubs. They will send a 6 & 9. You pay $120 and they refund $100 when you return them. I applied the $100 to my purchase. You can also call them and they will help. Like I said, I was fitted at my PGA Store and emailed them the specs of the Mizunos and they recommended a setup for me.

  14. Needed to upgrade my irons with graphite shafts due to some shoulder and elbow issues. I was playing Ping i10 with stiff steel shafts. After going through the tour van fitting process at my local PGA Superstore I was all set to drop $1,300 on a Mizuno combo set. Thankfully I was reading through this forum and found a thread about Sub70 irons. For $600 (or half the cost of Mizuno's) I decided to give them a try. Best decision I ever made.

    The customer service was outstanding. Jason and his team called, to talk through the results of my fitting and recommend a combo set. They sent me a few demo clubs and after a range session I decided to give them a try. 

    I bought a combo set. 5&6 were the 699Pro and 7-PW are the 639CB Forged. I've only had two rounds with them but I couldn't be happier. Great feel to the clubs, great distance and I love the graphite shafts.

  15. So I decided to cut down my 9 iron 1/4 inch and played a round on Sunday. I have to say that my strikes with that iron were very good. Playing another round on Friday and will see how it goes. Originally I tried chocking down, but it didn't have the same feel. Another two rounds are probably needed to make a decision unless a range opens up soon.  Thanks everyone.

  16. I am finally ditching my 10 year old 3W and would welcome suggestions. I've heard good things about the Cobra F9 and the SIM. Hands-on pros and cons of each would be great. If there is a different 3W you would recommend, I am all ears. I was a huge fan of the V-Steel back in the day which lead me to the SIM. I play to a 12 with 110MPH  driver head speed. 

  17. My contact is pretty decent. My wear mark is more like a quarter instead of a dime, and it is a little I little high on the club face towards the toe. I know that will improve because trimming the shaft will make the club a little flatter, or so I've read.
