    Article on ESPN site
  1. In 2019, prior to the US Open Jim Nance did an interview and special on Nick Faldo. This is comparable to say prior to the NBA Championship a special is done on Scottie Pippen - not MJ or prior to the NFL Playoffs a one hour special is done on Terry Bradshaw. Nothing against Nick or Terry but living in the past is killing the appeal of golf to the next generations. If the game is going to survive we need to make it reasonably interesting for new players, however TV and media in general is doing us all a disservice. Given shot tracker technology, current golfers trying new work out routines to gain distance and accuracy, good looking players - THERE IS PLENTY OF TOPICS other than Jack's 230 yard one iron of yesteryear. Thoughts?
  2. New member who followed the ESPN article to here. From Colorado How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I've been playing this time for five years, skipped 18 when had 3 kids, and played 10 years before. 20 years ago was a 4 handicap and as of September 2019 now again a 4 handicap - new system revised it to 3.7 in 2020 without really playing much. Too cold What do you love about golf? You can always keep peeling the onion of improvement. When all is good there is a Zen to the game, especially from tee to green to put to hole. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Found this 2 days ago from article in ESPN, do know at least one other SPY in Connecticut. When Golf Digest got sued a 5-10 years back they stopped real testing of golf balls - a shame, and lost relevance. The sport needs real help as you don't really know what the equipment is unless you test it yourself which is difficult to impossible. This is a great effort. Where are you from? What is your home course? I'm from Colorado. My home course is a municipal called Ute Creek. I like though playing all over, belonged as member to club in past and missed the trips and variety. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? I'd say the best thing about golf in this region is that it's relatively affordable and has a reasonable variety of nice courses. We play year round some years however worst thing is inconsistent weather with good tee times. Sometimes your are lucky and some times you lose out. What do you do for a living? I'm a Practice Manager for a law firm. How’d you pick your user name? JK Col - initials and state
  3. Driver - 2017-2018, GBB Epic Sub Zero -10.5, stiff, tested and bought later as favorite on testing range, also great looking club at address. Note that in Colorado have to hit drives up in the air to get distance Fairway Wood - 2017-2018, GBB Epic Sub Zero, 15, stiff, just bought to match and be easier to hit from fairway than previous - incredible club so far, relatively small head 5 wood- 19, Stiff, XR, old club but works Irons - 4-PW, X-forged, looked best at setup, was fitted, and cost 50% less than high end blades. Also have old Callaway 3 iron cavity back, forged hardly used except for windy days Wedges - 52-56-60, Mack Daddy 4, found Callaway wedges as good as others Putter, Odyssey, mesh face had to be glued back on but still works, strength of my game is putting
