  1. I prefer fast greens. Find less variation hole to hole. Much easier to control distance.
  2. Have to wait for the RAW release, but i will be buying these.
  3. i've seen this happen to head from various manufacturers. Touching it after you noticed it was probably a bad call. Usually a call to customer service gets your some sort of replacement or credit if you play your cards right. I would try to call them again and play up how you are such a callaway fan and really loved this product, are the original and sole owner, and it convinced you to buy other clubs from them, etc. Almost every time I've seen the OEM take care of the customer in some way, shape, or form. At least a credit to callaway pre owned or something. Or have them take it back for the 150% bonus toward a Mavrik.
  4. Hope so. Average score over last 10 rounds looks like 80.5. Quite a few recent posts though.
  5. I'd consider the Cobra F8s as GI, possibly SGI. I still have a set of OL in the garage. Playing Srixon 785s right now, which i consider a cavity back and there is no comparison. Very different clubs..
  6. Ha. Nice review there as well. Yes, this is a newer case he sent to me after I showed him my Nikon rangefinder. The cut out isnt 100% perfect as there are two button on top, but I really only use one to scan as the other just changes to mode from slope/non slope, so it works out very well.
  7. Edel is a good company that makes odd lofted wedges as well. Of course most wedges can be adjusted by a few degrees in either direction if you need.
  8. I'd buy a used driver. An older Ping or Cobra will do just fine. G30 or Cobra F8. Heck, I have an old Ping K15 that I game every now and then and it is a bomber.
  9. Also useful for someone is too deliberate with the lower body. You get reading too much and start trying to use the ground and jump and dip and turn the hips and slide to the target and all this stuff. Get on your knees, and the ball goes dead straight and still pretty dang far. Most people are impressed how far they can hit from their knees. Obviously the lower body can add power, but some overdo it.
  10. So, I got my first rangefinder a couple of months ago and absolutely love it. I probably use it way too much, but I honestly don't know how I lived without. But I quickly figured out, I completely lack any routine with it. Sometimes its in my bag, and I forget to zip it closed and worry about it falling out. So I put in the cubby of the cart, but its in a black case and I can't see it. Sometimes it's int the cup holder because it is easy to grab there, but when my playing partner reloads some cold ones its get thrown into the cage in the back. It's bad enough slowing up play to scope a 59 yard shot, but when it takes 30 seconds just to find the thing, you get really annoyed. The other day I joined my neighbor outside drinking a couple beers out front and he is talking golf to a friend I hadn't seen before. They really grab my attention when I hear Phil Mickelson is using his product. So I ask what he is talking about, and it turns out I am talking to one of the co-founders of Monument golf - Chad Gamblin. The product is a magnetic case that allows you to stick your range finder to any metal surface, which means you can stick it the cart right in front of you at all times. They were pretty stoked to see Phil using in the "Match" even though the camera cut away as he was sticking to his cart. Anyway, Chad offers to give me one to test, and sure enough a couple days later I've get a package in the mail. Really cool of him to do. https://monumentgolf.com/ It's essentially a Velcro closing case, with 2 industrial magnets sewn in. They do have a variety of styles and colors and even leather options. The black nylon one I have doesn't look to different than the one that came with the rangefinder, so it fits right in. Price point is $25-$30, so not breaking the bank. The magnets are the real deal. I just played 5 straight days riding on the cart and it doesn't bobble at all. Some of that was going full speed through the desert! Oops. There's no way this thing is coming off. And of course the range is right where you need it to be at all times. Right in front of you, and no confusion where to put when you are done. Just slam it on the cart and take off. Such a simple concept. Monument is also making a towel with the same magnets. I believe Costco is actually carrying their towel. It's on the Costco website at least. https://www.costco.com/stick-it-magnetic-golf-towel-2-pack.product.100655027.html I usually have my towel attached to the bag, but if you are the type to bring a towel out to the green to clean your ball or wedges, the magnets on the towel will actually stick to your wedge or putter. So after you use it you can toss it on the ground and then pick it up with the club on the way back to the cart. Kinda nifty. Let me know if you have any experience with these products or have any questions. I've definitely been impressed with mine and have no plans to take it off. Such a convenience!
  11. Checked two of your recommendations of the list. Got out to Springfield last Thursday after work. Fun course there and it was in really nice shape. I'll definitely go back, as its so quick to play, the price is right, and its great fun and practice. Played Bear Creek on Friday, Trilogy PR on Saturday, and then Dinosaur Mountain on Sunday. What a beauty that was!
  12. always shoot 3 or 4 times. doesnt hurt to have one of the free apps on the phone to give you front, center, back, so that you know the probable range of what you should be seeing.
  13. Lol. I ready the title and was like oh yeah I just shot a 66 on Thursday. Same thing though, executive par 61 course. Was a great deal of fun though and great practice.
