  1. I thought about doing this as well, but the last few times out the courses have been busy since the opening of courses (at least in PA). Once it dies down a bit, i will give it a try as well. At least on the tee box
  2. That sounds about right. Everything i have read is that the outdoor mode is the most accurate. Issue is that it is giving me to be what seems to be very elevated carry distances with my woods. Irons sound about right (need to verify on a GCquad or similar), but need to update as my swing has improved drastically since the last time i visited the simulator. My driver on course has a long of about 285, via shotscope in the 2 rounds i was able to use it, and shot vision is telling me my carry distances are pushing 300 (+/- 10 yards). I know wind plays a huge part, and both times i was out on the course, the wind was blowing with gusts up to 30mph, but the carry distances from shot vision for the Driver and 3 wood seem to be a bit optimistic. Ill get it out again in the next day or 2 and see if anything has changed
  3. Just wanted to bump this to see if anyone had a chance to test it and possibly against other launch monitors (other than the 2 that are on youtube at this point)
  4. I downloaded the app tonight, and hit about 30 balls. It only failed to register 1 shot out of the 30. Not sure on accuracy, as I don’t have anything to compare it to. There is a YouTube video of a guy that compares it side by side with the Garmin G80 and it is almost identical to those carry numbers. I am looking to buy the PRGR, but I want to give this app some more run before I spend 200. I used the app outside, and placed my iPhone pro max 3.5 feet back, and 2 feet in front of the ball. I propped my phone up with the weight ball on the flex trainer (the cheaper version of the orange whip). I also had no back drop, just open space in the direction the camera was pointing. I’ve heard people were making black backgrounds, but it was not necessary for me. EDIT: I forgot to mention, that I bought a 1 month subscription to try the app, as most of you probably assumed with the data provided below. I will go through all my clubs today or tomorrow (depending on weather) and see if there is anything weird about the data. Being new to golf, my swing speed/yardages change every time i am on the course as my ball striking is leaps and bounds better now than it was before Quarantine. So hard to say how accurate the numbers below are. i included a picture of my 7 iron and Driver stats with the app.

  6. Mike Yamrick - York, Pennsylvania 20-30 first year having a card. Shooting around 100 a round ping i5 irons 145-155
  7. Hmm. this is directly from their site: All Smart Sensor purchases include a 1-year subscription valued at US$99.99 starting from the date the sensors are activated. After 1-year you will be auto-billed US$99.99 per year.
  8. I must have read this entire thread 10 times. I was deciding between the 2 of these options, and just settled on and ordered the Shotscope (with the full intention of upgrading to the V3 if they send me the email). Arccos sounds so good, but the initial cost and the annual subscription on top of that is a deal breaker. I just ordered the V2 for $127 (after tax) to my door. I will try to add my thoughts on it after i receive it and get it on the course
  9. Yeah i did. It was pretty cool. It is much different than anything I have ever played. It is a links style course, so there are no trees, which was different for me. I scored terribly, but mostly because I lost so many balls in the fescue. The fescue was short, but the ground was so soft that the balls were plugging and were impossible to find, even ones that missed the fairway by a few feet. If i remove the lost balls and penalty strokes for them, i shot very well for me LOL. The course itself was very nice, and seemed to be in great shape. layout of the course was really cool as well.
  10. Small world is Correct. I grew up in Burnside, about 5 or so minutes from Cherry Tree... And I agree, would be awesome to meet some of you
  11. I am in. It would be great to meet you and get out together when we can. Only a few of my friends golf and the ones that do are from where i grew up (3 hours away). Valley green is only about 30 minutes from my house (i live fairly close to Briarwoods golf course(s)), and have heard its a pretty nice course. I think I am heading out to Royal Manchester Sunday, which appears to just be a few miles south of Valley Green.
  12. I have not at this point. So new, I have only played at Hickory Heights and Range End (and the Chetremon back where i grew up). Would like to get out to all of them around here this year. I am going to get out Sunday if the weather holds up though. No set plans on where yet
  13. Hey guys/gals, My name is Mike, and I currently live in the York, Pennsylvania area. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? -- I just started in October. I played for a year or 2 when i was 18-19 (total of 10 rounds), which was basically an excuse to hang with friends. I am 32 now and hit some balls at a range and ordered a 2nd hand set of clubs a week later. So far i have been to the range and simulator way more than the course. I have played a total of 36 holes. 2 rounds of 9, and 1 round of 18. My first full round of 18 i shot a 102. I just bought a Ghin number and once the season opens in PA i will get a proper handicap. What do you love about golf? -- The competitiveness, and the eagerness to get better. So far, golf has a funny way of giving you hope and then just ripping it away randomly. I love that. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? -- I found this site while looking for recommendations for clubs and golf balls. Signed up immediately, but have just lurked in the background reading as much as I could. Where are you from? What is your home course? -- I grew up in Western PA, not far from Punxsutwawney (think of the stupid groundhog LOL), but now live in the York, Pa area. I do not have a home course yet, but the 2 that i have been to are Hickory Heights in Spring Grove, PA and then Range end in Dillsburg, PA. I like both, but they are very different. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? -- so far, the weather is the worst thing. Cannot golf with snow and its pretty miserable in subfreezing temps. So far, everyone i have met have been pleasant and helpful for a new golfer, so that would be the best thing right now. What do you do for a living? -- I am a hydrogeologist for a company in Maryland. Work with Groundwater. Ironically, the last job i worked on was a New golf course/housing complex in southern Delaware. Crazy how that works, I start playing golf, and my next job is finding groundwater for a golf course. Pretty neat. How’d you pick your user name? -- Graduated Penn state in 2010, and Mey123 was my designated name for all things in the PSU sytem (Email etc).
