  1. Look on the bright side. If it is fake, at least you shouldn't find any difference with its performance characteristics. Hope it works out well for you though. I just couldn't bring myself to spend $270 on a used putter. https://mygolfspy.com/real-scotty-vs-fake-scotty/
  2. While they may be there for you to perform basic driver adjustments, I really don't think there's too much of a vested interest there. There's usually too many other people to deal with, and it just turns into a guessing game for them and they start throwing different options at you to try. If you can book a fitting session with them individually though, it may be different, as they can take the time to view and analyze the data that they are gathering. Most of them likely just go through a training session that the manufacturer puts them through, so it's not like they have an engineering background or anything. They're there to sell the clubs. The rep that I dealt with was fantastic though, and never rushed or pressured me into doing anything that I didn't want to do. It's great when you find one that has playing experience as a pro and or/they truly have a passion for the game and what they do.
  3. They're hurting your score because they apparently don't perform as well in wet conditions? Do some testing of your own and find a ball that works for you and your game.
  4. Great event for sports and for golf in general. Where else can you raise 20 million over the course of a day like this? Even though I don't like him, Tb certainly displayed a level of mental toughness and resilience in a situation that many amateur golfers would not have been able to recover from. He also shrugged off splitting his pants on live TV. Phil's earpiece meltdown was entertaining and TW just played solid, consistent golf. Good stuff.
  5. What club are you using for this shot?
  6. Where did you read that? Yes, they can give you that extra control, but probably not if you're still building your swing and learning the game. Right now, you're probably better off using the gap wedge in your iron set if you're looking for more consistency. I'm not saying to give up on the wedges that you currently have, but it will take some time to learn and understand how to use them. Also agree with Scooter - look for a cavity back wedge. I'm also a huge fan of the Glides.
  7. This has to be one of the greatest articles that I've read on this site, and I still keep coming back to it to this day. It definitely prepares you well to go into a fitting and ensure that you are asking the right questions. I have a difficult time seeing golfers walk into my local big box golf store and just buying a $500+ driver with a stock shaft right off the shelf after taking a few swings in the sim. The comments coming out of the sims are certainly entertaining though, as is the preoccupation with requesting the "stiffest shaft available." https://mygolfspy.com/golf-geeks-shaft-performance/
  8. It looks like there is an actual place that creates these things. All Items are special order...I just want to know how the individual(s) behind this came up with the idea that something like this was even possible. How did they decide that there is even a small demand for something like this??? Not sure how I would react to someone using this on the course... http://rtoproducts.com/index.php Q: How are they made? A: Each cane is crafted with a 5/16 inch steel rod insert for total strength and stability. The reproductive organs are all cleaned sterilized and dried on the stabilizing rod in order to create the necessary adhesion. Each product is then stained and completely covered with industrial strength marine quality varnish. Individual product color ranges from medium brown to a deep mahogany brown tone.
  9. Irons look great! You may want to consider being fit for a driver at some point and look/test different shaft options. Not sure about your swing speed, but the nine degrees probably isn't helping you when it comes to forgiveness off the tee.
  10. Definitely the stadium course at PGA West. Had to deal with a terrible wind all day that did not make the island green on 17 very fun at all. Definitely enjoyed the layout and the design from one of the best in the game.
  11. I'm not sure how much Phil will be into it, since he won't actually be able to pocket any money with this one, but I'm sure the banter will be somewhat enjoyable. The light trash talking going on has already been mildly entertaining. Tiger will want his revenge, so I might as well give it a go.
  12. LaVerendrye - isn't that the home of the 750 yard Par 6? I think you could really use an overhaul with some of your clubs(and balls), but whatever works for you out there.
  13. I'm not sure what your experience with putters is, but don't get drawn into the lure of the expensive/flashy putter. I have expensive putters sitting on the sidelines, and I have the most perfectly balanced/weighted cheap putter that I keep coming back to. As Kenny B said, you need to take the time to understand the putter that best fits your stroke on the greens. You also want something that inspires confidence and gives you the feel that you're looking for. That will narrow down the selection process for you in what can be one of the most overwhelming decisions that the game has to offer.
  14. Can't beat those irons. That looks like an original sigma G head cover for the putter - which model do you have?
