  1. Remember the cameras cutting to #6 last year as they were finishing the tournament. Thought they were just updating the greens, wrong! The man has an eye for design, have yet to play one of his courses, but I like what he said about Muirfield “...May not be tougher, but it is better...”. Makes me appreciate the Golden Bear much more. This course will be his ultimate legacy.
  2. I have done something similar using dimes, practice mat and lob wedge. The premise there was to catch the dime clean. It was about engaging the bounce, but it also encouraged consistent knowledge of the low point of the swing.
  3. Ditto - my CBX wedges are da’ bomb!
  4. Have always heard great things about these putters - never tried one, hopefully will be chosen to test. However if I am not, it is all good as I will follow the testers to read what they say.
  5. As a transmet amputee who like to try to walk as much as possible, I am always looking for a better shoe to support my foot while playing. Current shoe is a spikeless shoe from Sketchers. if I am not selected, I will follow this to see what the reviews are.
  6. Congrats - love to hear and read if the shoes walk the walk that lets the clubs talk the talk....
  7. Willie New Bern, NC Callaway Superhot 70 My experience has been limited to pitch practice in the back yard with a ton of "gimme" "rock-flite" XL's to more recently finding the occasional and playing the Top Flite D2 Distance. I like the sound and feel of the D2 and it seems to play well from tee to green.
  8. Willie / New Bern NC Size: 7.5 Addidas (just don't remember the model) - soft spikes I have to say how comfortable it is to my left foot (no toes/transmet amputation due to motorcycle wreck in 2016) and how it supports my stance as a I have little to no lateral support on that side. Couple the comfort with solid traction and we are cooking with gas.
  9. Mr Wishon makes some good points. Let me first say, I've never been fitted and know I should. COVID has killed that for me at the moment. Hopefully soon. For me, I play a 1" shorter shaft on the driver and I like it. I don't hit far, a lot of that is due to the physical mechanics I deal with (no toes on the left foot, grafted skin where they used to be, no lateral support in that foot, the list goes on). What has helped is that I have my driver dialed up in terms of loft somewhere around 11.5-12.0*. Then again I believe SLDR drivers need to be lofted up to get back to reasonable lofts.
  10. Willie - New Bern, NC Right Handed 1st choice - GS53 3wood - 14* MRC Tensei CK Blue 70 gram Reg flex 2nd choice - VKTR+ Hybrid 18* Recoil ES 75 F3 Reg 22.2 Taylormade SLDR-S 22* Hybrid
  11. Willie Abco Tech Indoor Golf Putting Green – Portable Mat with Auto Ball Return Function (from Amazon) Medium as I tend to switch between Muni and Semi-Private.
  12. Willie / New Bern Avg score: 100 Titleist 962 or Callaway Diablo Edge - depends on the day of the week...
  13. Willie - Bayboro, NC Cleveland CBX 54deg SW (would balance between the 50 & 58 I use in the CBX)
  14. 23 hdcp / New Bern, NC Titleist 692, 8i - 120yd Have heard much about them on MGS, but that’s about all.
  15. Gosh dang - I was hoping to see how it compares to the Garmon S20....good luck to the winners and looking forward to hearing it performs.
