  1. Thanks a lot for this incredibly detailed rundown. I'm a first-time father-to-be and we're also looking at buying a new bigger house in the near future. I've managed to convince my wife that putting a simulator into the house will alleviate my urges to go to the range several times a week--therefore, I'm home more often. I'm pretty sure she just loves me, she doesn't actually fall for my sell tactics. My budget promises to be about 1/4 of yours, but you've still laid out a lot of the things to consider (even if I have to do many of them much cheaper). I have a really handy father who can save me a lot on the labor and will jerry rig many of these things that you have done incredibly well. I think the biggest challenge, at least in my opinion, will be on the technology side. Deciding the best launch monitor/software set up for the price. I'd love the GC Quad, but that kills my budget immediately. Either way, absolutely great job--you've inspired me further haha
  2. Hey all, long time lurker here. I've somehow managed to get away without registering and posting anything. Until now. I've been playing golf for roughly 18 years. After dabbling in the mid-90s for the first 12ish years I finally invested time (and money) in equipment and lessons--so last year I was able to get down into the 81-83 range pretty consistently by the end of last summer. Hopefully I'm able to break the elusive 80 barrier this summer. I'm a life-long Ohio resident (have bounced back and forth between Cleveland and Columbus a few times). I'll say that Ohio generally has a lot of good golf courses and people who love the game but the weather obviously makes the season inconsistent. I'm lucky that I'm able to get on a couple of the better courses around here--I play the Scarlet Course a few times a year, but mostly bounce around whatever course has an open tee time. I work from home for a software company, which has been pretty good for my game. It makes it easy to get to the range randomly in the middle of the day when I need a break from work. As for my screenname, I picked it because it's ridiculous. My name is Travis, and I thought it sounded really stupid.
  3. Travis / Ohio Right now I'm comparing a stiff UST V2 (got fitted for it) and a stiff Ventus Red 5 (curious) 98-103 Improve attack angle and decrease spin. I'd also love to compare it head to head with the Ventus. Yes, I own a Rapsodo MLM and use the Trackman from the range occasionally.
