  1. Tyler Kaysville, Utah I can't afford cart fees so I walk every round. Used a no name 3 wheel cart from Amazon until this happened so currently I carry...
  2. Tyler, Salt Lake City UT Hcp: 20 Wilson D100 ES Love my Wilson irons right now, but need a Wilson upgrade
  3. Tyler from Utah I have used a phone app GPS, but poor service kind of kills it Currently I use a laser range finder
  4. Salt Lake City, UT hcp: 20 OEM alignment line Taylormade TP5 "PUTT4DOUGH"
  5. Love this idea, I know I am a little late to the party on this thread, but just curious. If you put this on without removing the grip (By cutting it down the length of the tubing) would the crease be unbearable? Even if you "hid" it on the back side of the shaft so it isn't visable at address?
  6. I've actually thought about getting this a lot. Going from no access to data to this would be a big leap that would benefit me a lot. Especially swing speed and gapping would be awesome. I watched that review and love the thought of making range time more meaningful than the squinting, I think that landed near the 150 sign that I do now. Especially since the course closest to me has a sloped driving range
  7. My two cents on this, the US Open experience of the past few years is a good example of how difficult golf can be to the sports elite even with the best equipment. If the powers that be decide golf needs to be more difficult, schedule more difficult venues and let the USGA go crazy. I personally was not a fan of the Shinnecock experience. Just curious, does Sir Nick still game his set from back in the good old days? Or is he benefitting from today's oversized drivers??
  8. Been there done that. I am still fighting a wicked slice, but at the time, my old driver head has started to come off (due to excessive shank abuse) and I ended up with my 3W off the tee. As you saw in your round, playing from the fairway is a lot nicer than playing from the weeds. Some of my highest scoring rounds are more because of penalty strokes and punch outs than because I 4 putt every hole. I agree that the driver should be figured out, when I am having a good driving round, I can attack alot more because of that added distance off the tee, but in the mean time leaving it in the b
  9. Men would more readily agree to go grocery shopping with their wives haha
  10. In the mail today I picked up my Costco Connection magazine and like most of you, I flipped through the pages to see what bulk items I might get my hands on. And there, on page 51, I found this. After a quick search of the internet, I couldn't find much info, but the description makes it sound like it could be what I have hoped for for a long time, all the Scotty Cameron, non of the price tag. Forged stainless steel, milled face, and comes with a SuperStroke CounterCore grip. Anyone else excited to see this knockoff beauty in June??
  11. Kaysville Utah ~105 Below average Absolutely, always looking for more yards. 300 off the tee will be mine!!
  12. Mind blown!! I love this!! I was just discussing the other day the impact learning styles has on the confidence of individuals in difference circumstances. I think this makes a lot of sense!
  13. Yeah, that's the Crux of it all isn't it. Man it stinks to be less than rich haha
  14. Would love to hear your thoughts after you have a chance to play with it some.
  15. Thanks for the suggestions! Does anybody have experience with Rapsodo R-Motion?
  16. I'm sure I have missed a thread about this somewhere, so if you have the link, feel free to direct me there. But like most of you I'm sure, I am going a little stir crazy stuck inside right now. I frequently find myself shopping golf gear, watching YouTube clips, etc. Just to get that golf exposure. I want to get something to help curb the pain. I have mats and nets and all that jazz, but I want some type of simulator feedback. My issue is cost, I can't afford to set myself up with skytrak or anything more than a few hundred bucks. I know that limits me with what kind of data I can get e
  17. Thanks @B.Boston, yeah it wasn't too bad. I have a pixel 3 xl so a decent sized phone. The skin I purchase came with 3 different "sizes" each covering a different amount of the phone. Naturally I chose one and had the other two left over, so it did take more material than just one phone skin. I traced out my putter on paper and used those as a template to cut my phone skins. The Manta putter is naturally segmented so that made it easier. The actual skin is a sticker like material and a quick pass with a blow-dryer on low heat helps the adhesive really take. It also helped smooth out the corner
  18. Well as I am lacking black paint and found myself with a lot of time on my hands, I decided to just go off the rails and repurpose an unused phone skin. Definitely not a look for everybody but I like it!
  19. This is a really cool concept, would you use video sumissions to analyze the swing, or are you looking at a device similar to a Mizuno shaft optimizer?? I think that to begin at least, leaning more towards a pay as you go would be smart. In my mind it will be difficult for early adopters of the AI coach concept to commit to a subscription. However, after you establish a track record of high performance and results people may be more willing to consider a subscription. I know personally if I am looking at this as a new product, I do not want to pay monthly until/unless I know it works, bu
  20. I just barely cut off 2 inches from my 2014 big Bertha driver. I added some cut up lead tape to the hollow interior of the perimeter weight (added the desired weight while maintaining looks and I can now adjust the full weight amount without hastle) and it was the best decision I have made recently. I used to work a wicked slice and it's now a baby fade. Just as long and more fairways. I put a new lamkin calibrate grip on it, similar to the golf pride align grips and just out the alignment ridge a touch closed so when I grip the club I don't have to hold a crazy strong grip to get the des
  21. I think that is so interesting, that you can pull out a relic set of irons and people think it is nostalgic and a reminder of when golf was pure, but an old putter is just immediately written off.
  22. So in all seriousness, I doubt you've brought the brick out to the practice green to test that, but a lot of putters that claim some proprietary, "sink more putts" tech are not that appealing. Do you think there are putters that you wouldn't give a chance based on looks?
  23. The great Deion Sanders once said, "If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good. If you play good, they pay good." My question is, does tht apply to the flatstick? A while back I got myself a Taylormade Ghost Manta putter for a steal on eBay. Not the biggest fan of the white putter, but I figured I could fix that, quick trip to the hardware store and a few costs of black paint and I get this. (Looks a bit worse for wear now) I liked the look a lot better and I took the liberty to add a couple alignment lines to help me out. Alas, the shine has faded and I find m
  24. Hey everybody, new to the forums, but excited to be here! 1. I've been playing golf for the last decade. I got buit by the bug and now it won't let go. 2. I love the feeling of being able to "crush" a drive or pure an iron and have it do exactly what you want it to. And I love the pursuit of that feeling 3. I came into MGS because I love the science behind golf and these guys do a great job dissecting it. 4. I'm from Kaysville, Utah and I would have to say my home course is Davis Park, but I love finding new courses and experiencing different types of course design.
