  1. Reggie - Madison, WI I used to live in OR, where I could go to the course over the winter. Now I'm in Wisconsin, I have a 10' Wellputt that I'll be using in the concrete basement. I used the Wellputt this last Spring, it's not ideal but its good to work on speed I'd want to test the fast mat, hopefully the 1 x 2 directional hole setup
  2. Yeah, parks are closed for now. They may open up by the end of the month, but I'm thinking more public beach access camping. I'm scoping some areas like Agate Beach a little north of Bandon where I can set up a tent on the beach. I'm also open to something inland near the Coquille.
  3. I'm looking to head down to Bandon Dunes for a few day stretch. Does anyone know of any good areas to camp nearby? Was hoping to camp >= 2 nights, play 3 days.

  5. Looking to buy a V2 ahead of the V3 launch
  6. MGS has reported before that the low level fruit in gains have already been eaten up, and years ago. I would imagine that we'll definitely see some incremental gains in certain product lines, but just like in a fitting - do I want to pay an extra $300 for +2 yds and relatively similar dispersion of a properly fitted stock shaft? Do I want to pay $500 for a new driver when I can find similar results for $200? It would be an amazing thing to be able to fit a previous year's model, but unless you can do that, to me it's still worth getting properly fitted on a new model and hanging on to it
  7. @pozzit Check out Max Homa's podcast Get a Grip
  8. I saw Tom O and Pebble opened (I still get Bismarck updates), but didn't know there was snow coming. I played Hawk last summer when I made a visit, brought back a lot of memories. I used to work out there. I'll be through again this summer, hope it's in great shape again.
  9. I tried both the X and XS out at a golf show here in Portland. They were saying the new tech allowed a spread on both ends of the spectrum, for the XS distance and workability were increased. I am debating a switch to the X, because I need to maintain low spin off the driver. I really want to shape my irons, though, so it's hard to switch from XS. Also have a stock of '18 XS to be played yet.
  10. @3puttking how's the Hawk looking this spring? Man I miss that course
  11. Portland, OR courses remain opened with the safety guidelines enacted and I believe the same is true for most, if not all of OR. Our governor mandated "relatively relaxed" stay in place guidelines and encourages mental and physical well-being during the crisis as long as guidelines are followed. Course Safety: Tee times booked online, digital transactions preferred No Cash Flag sticks not touched Cups flipped for shallow ball retrieval 1 per cart (unless same household) No rakes I haven't been to a course in a little over a week, but I would imagine the greens crew is
  12. Makes sense. I'd love to play if there are any other events you need players for - Pumpkin Ridge, Pronghorn? Keep it in mind, if so. Stay healthy
  13. Doesn't look like the event is cancelled yet. Do you have your players?
  14. Just getting into posting here on MGS. I've been a forum user for a while, but thought I'd start posting and contributing after I've become an MGS disciple. I've been swinging sticks since I was about 4-5 yo. My parents used the golf course as a free baby sitter. I grew up in Bismarck, ND where the Junior Golf program is outstanding. Five public courses in the area that allowed any U-18 player to tee off for free as long as it was before noon. I could play up to 54 holes on some mornings and be done around 3-4 for my parents to pick me up. I played competitively through HS, then lost the
  15. I played competitive golf growing up, gave up the game for about 6-7 years, and had always played off-the-rack clubs. I picked them back up again last year and knew it was time for a fitting and a complete bag upgrade. I went through a big research period of how to get the most out of a fitting, who does the best fittings, what to look for. I'm an engineer, so I'm very analytical by nature. I ended up going through 3 different fittings. I flew into Denver on a business trip so made sure to set up a PGA Tour Superstore fitting van experience ($49.99). They also offer a free version. This w
  16. Reggie Portland, OR 9 Callaway Apex Pro 4-W Dynamic Gold X100 T100s I'm a mechanical engineer, testing and documentation is in my bag, and I think I can over-analyze anything. I'd love to test these irons and I'd even make a trip to Bandon with 'em! I'm a natural 9-10 handicap, but have practiced all winter and set a goal to reach 4 by the end of July. I'm working on the gapping of my current set-up and would love to see how these change that dynamic. If the young guns make Jordan Spieth look like Phil with skinnier calves, I hate to think where I fall in the pecking order; let me
  17. First Name/State Reggie Stecher / Oregon Current Driver Shaft Mitsubishi Diamana S+ Blue 60 Current Driver Swing Speed 115-120 What if anything would you like to improve in regards to your driver shaft..such as more or less spin, better dispersion, more distance..etc. Better dispersion, less spin, my distance is good - I have a fitting appointment this weekend for a gear revamp and will have the most recent, accurate data on my swing along with a better matched personal shaft for comparison. Do you have regular access to a Launch Monitor--Not required,
