  1. This is a fun tool to play around with. One thing I noticed is it does not provide a loft for the driver you're fit for. 

    Also, it would be a cool feature to be able to compare your current gamer to the fitted club with the yards and accuracy numbers provided.

    Im excited to see this platform expanded to fit you for other clubs as well

  2. I have a 50 count desktop humidor I just restocked with a few sticks. I really like My Father The Judge, Flor de Las Antillas and Fuente Double Chateau. I picked up a Herf-a-dor from CI that came with a 5 pack of La Aroma De Cuba. 

    For those Bourbon Lovers, I saw Buffalo Trace brand cigars on Cigars International.com. https://www.cigarsinternational.com/p/buffalo-trace-cigars/2039200/ Let me know if yall have tried one.

    Thank you for this article!   This quote explained it all to me and I'm actually embarrassed I didn't do more research on my own (or my own critical thinking).  "The USGA's Handicap Research Team tells us that the average player is expected to play to his Course Handicap or better only about 25 percent of the time"

    So my next question then is...what is everyone's range?  Mine is a 78 to 98 in my past 20 rounds.   So 20 strokes.  I've seen worse for sure.

    91-102. However, I pickup after a triple, due to frustration, pace of play and ego

  4. 6 years. My first set was a cheap brand called Ram Golf, bought them at a Sports Authority when i picked up golf in my teens and replaced them after college. Bought a set of Taylormade Speedblades from Dicks. I started to get an itch about 2 years ago to upgrade, but i bought lessons instead. Glad i did because i dropped about 10 strokes, shooting in the lower 100s to lower 90s. Recently I went to a Callaway fitting and fell in love with the Mavrik Pros. Waiting for them to arrive at the pro shop to pick them up.

  5. Just played 18. Was not having a great morning, my driver want working, putter wasnt rolling straight. Terrible round, started to think it might actually be me and not my clubs. I was in a dark place. Long story short, I finished Birdie Birdie. So I guess you could so IM BACK! Cant wait, probably going to break 80 next time im out 😂

  6. I'm a lefty, but sometimes i'm a righty. All my life I have played baseball lefty, Lacrosse Lefty, left footed in soccer, left hockey stick, lefty golf clubs too. However, i'm right eye dominant when it comes to shooting, and i write right handed. In High school my buddy and i were evenly matched playing ping pong, he was righty, I was lefty, so we decided to switch. Now i am an ambidextrous ping pong player. Right is still weaker than left, but i can hold my own. When it comes to golfing, i have a hard time seeing the line on the green, behind the ball is fine, but over the ball looks like im way offline. I am debating getting a right handed putter to putt with a left handed grip, in order for my dominant eye to see the line better. Has anyone tried this before?

    Signed up again, had my mom sign up & asked my sister and brother to sign up as well this year. Gotta increase those odds!🤞


    I first entered the raffle in 2018 and struck gold! I went to the Monday practice round and brought my father along. We were lucky enough to have cousins living in the area so we had a free place to stay. Beautiful course, not a blade of grass out of place! We walked the whole course, stopped at the 16 to watch some players skip balls across the pond. Saw Tiger on the range, from a distance, seating was packed. Pimento cheese sammy + beer was lunch, i could eat that every day. I only regret not buying more merch.

  8. I had a very favorable experience at GolfTech two years ago. In March they have a sale on lesson packs so i signed up for the 10 lesson pack and got 20% off. I made sure to use the unlimited practice about 3 times a week and scheduled a lesson about every 2 weeks. The video practice was the most beneficial because it was an easy way for me to see my swing and get on the correct path. It was also helpful to play 18 and discuss my misses with the coach to guide the lessons. I used the free fitting for new driver and woods.

    Before the lessons i was barely breaking 100 consistently. After the 10 lessons and 3 months of video practice i dropped about 10 shots and broke 90 once. I am still a high handicapper, but my GT experience was outstanding.


    1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?

      I started to play on and off around 2008. I bought my first cheap set of clubs from Sports Authority. Been playing more since College, my Handicap is 19, but i feel like i should be at a 15.

      The challenge
    3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?

      Stumbled across the youtube videos and podcasts about 6 months ago. Do not know any other spies, but isnt that what a spy would say?...
    4. Where are you from? What is your home course?

      From Fairfax Virginia. I don't have a Home course i play regularly, but Bull Run and Westfields are favorites when the price is right.
    5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?

      I would say there is quite an abundance of public courses to play, but the weather and crowded weekends are the worst.
