  1. PS guy over here: but the last 8 months of releases on a retiring console are usually the best, imo. Idk if we’ll see a game on either next gen console that pushes the platform for at least 18 months Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. If you normally hit a fade by coming out to in, swiping across the ball to the left (for a righty) and you for some reason start coming into the ball with a more neutral face ( but still swing left) the result will be a ball that starts and stays left, usually straight but it can also hook depending on grip. Hooks and pulls always add more yardage : and if you’re anything like me it’s just deeper into OB. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. Micah Salt Lake City, Utah Currently I use the skillz accelerator putting mat: it’s the 1st mat I’ve purchased. It’s improved my starting line/direction, but not my speed. I’d like to try the slow/municipality green speed mat Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. I love my Mitsubishi Tensei ck Pro white: it’s actually the lightest shaft I tried at 60 grams, which to me feels heavier because I feel the club head weight more than the shaft weight. I have the tour stiff but I only swing 118-121. They have 75 and 100 gram options as well. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. I hear ya: everyone knows what a good shot looks like, and I certainly will congratulate anyone when I see one. I usually don’t pay attention to anyone else’s swings outside of tee shots and putts, too deep in my own little world I guess... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. Telling someone else’s ball to “get up “ or “get down” or “spin” when you’re unfamiliar with their game is problematic... With my regular foursome, no worries, but with a random, I’m not talking at their ball. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. I find my Titleist AP3 forgiving on fat and thin shots, but not heel or toe. They’re hard enough to hit that I have to practice and pay attention, but not so difficult to take the enjoyment away. And this is going to sound weird, but I love how a flushed iron feels at impact, but not in love with the sound. I’m not sure if these compare more directly to T-100 or T -200 but they’ll be much cheaper than either... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Love this place: it’s easily worth 3x what I spend on Golf and golf digest subscriptions. I happily set up a monthly donation, I wish I had found this place before I started spending serious $ on equipment! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. Just sent you a DM... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Yeah if you’re practicing and taking lessons, you want clubs you can “grow” into: I’m glad I got AP3s and not the AP1 that would’ve been easier to hit 2 years ago . Then again, I’d have an excuse to go get some all black T100’s [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Hit a full bucket yesterday: my cut/fade swing with the driver has begun leaking into my iron swing recently. So I wanted every iron hit left and every drive off the toe just to remind myself that I could. Then I noticed that my club face was really open at the top of my backswing, so I’ll be working on that for next few practice sessions... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. I’m usually the one making fun of my own bad swings: I try not to comment on anyone’s swings unless it’s a center cut bomb or right next to the flag. I find newer golfers tend to comment on every shot, good or bad, and talk to others players balls while in flight. Both are no-no’s in my book. My wife loves talking sh*t to me on the course, and I find it funny, but I have to remind her not to comment on other players shots, particularly random singles we get paired up with. I’m usually not one for needling buddies during a round, but if it’s funny, it’s fair game. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. I honestly don’t know which to choose : my avg drive is 285 and I 3 putt about once a round. But when do I 3 putt? Usually on a par 5 that I reached in 2... But generally speaking, the harder the course, the more I’ll 3 putt. Not sure how many strokes I’d save by being 15 yards closer on 12-14 holes, but I know eliminating 3 putts would save me at least an entire stroke each round: more if I’m playing a difficult course.

  14. Yeah I’ve got a wedge fitting scheduled for mid- October; might end up getting some irons bent in addition to new wedges... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. As an avid snowboarder I couldn’t agree more: No one can tell you when to change edges and start a turn, you just have to feel it. I was very conscious of that sort of teaching when I first took a lesson: my wife bought me a 6 pack of lessons at the pga tour superstore, and while I won’t go back, they were helpful. The millennial in me has to know why. My instructor wasn’t great at explaining why, but he was accurate in his assessment of my game, and what would help me improve the fastest. And while changing my grip did ruin a summer of golf for me, he prepared me for it. Even suggested not using the new grip when I went to play for enjoyments sake. Now I think I have just enough knowledge to be dangerous, and that will make the search for my next instructor that much harder... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
