    Tee shots

    Totally agree: and I fell into the latter category: my length off the tee was a liability due to my average driver tee shot being 285 but suffering from a 2 way miss. Clubbing down keeps me in bounds, but it also cuts down on birdie opportunities: as you put it, higher floor lower ceiling. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Tee shots

    I’m gonna create a separate post so I can show a bunch of data on this, but I’ve been waiting over a month for my new driver shaft, and have been teeing off with 3wood, 3/4 iron, and other irons while I’m without my driver. It’s been eye opening: am I scoring better? Yes 4 strokes better on average when compared to last years June rounds. Are FIR’s up? Yes, by a whopping 4 fairways (40%) a round. Are GIR’s down? Yes by about 10%: but I’m hitting longer irons into greens. Am I a better golfer now than last year? Definitely Am I making more eagles and birdies? Nope: but I’m not making double bogeys anymore either. RevKev & DaveP043 both make good points but golf is so individual: I would agree that the likelihood of a 12 handicap hitting 2 good 4 irons followed by a solid 7 is unlikely, it all depends on the particular golfer’s strengths and weaknesses.

  3. Pretty much: I should mention that if you’re shafts are “in stock” at the CC headquarters in Chicago it shouldn’t be that long, but if they’re placing your order with an overseas manufacturer... I’ll just say I’ve gotten pretty good with my 3 wood all of a sudden Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. I got fitted for a new Driver shaft(Tensei Pro white 60 TX) for my G410 plus at my local CC on 6/6: still waiting on that shaft as of today... That is not a knock on the fitter: he’s a good dude and was very thorough with my fitting. I can’t wait to post my findings once I have it and have gamed it for 20 rounds, but I placed that order over a month ago... So... if those custom shafts are coming from japan like mine is, you can expect a 60 day wait minimum. So, if you wanna blow 2k on an iron set you might not get til September...

    Tee shots

    I’ve been hitting my 3 wood while I wait for my custom shaft to arrive( it’s been 5 weeks) and I have improved with it! Using it off the tee has helped me have more confidence with it off the turf; which still only happens 1 -2 times a round. I’ve learned that I tend to cut/fade it, and I can’t use as strong of a grip with it. Bad shots aren’t blocks dead right anymore, instead it’s a 215 yard sky ball, which is what you get when your AOA is negative. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. Fowler is this generation’s Sergio Garcia: all the talent in the world but can’t seem to get the talent to equal wins, specifically majors. My guess is he’ll have a career similar to Sergio: a fan favorite, pushing 20 wins, maybe a major or 2 towards the end of his prime. Great guy and certainly not a bad career, but I feel like he’s underachieves for the last 5+ years. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. As someone who hits it into OB regularly, I fully understand why it’s a 2 stroke penalty, but I’ve always been confused as to where to drop. Specifically, if my tee shot never realistically was ever traveling over an in bounds area. I’ve always taken the 2 shot penalty and re-tee’d, and was confused by playing partners telling me to, “take the distance” - I was always like, “what distance” lol: ball was OB before it flew 20 yards Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Francesco was on a tear for over a year, I think he’s just regressed back to the mean... But his swing is just smooth: always seems b tempo and effortless Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. I've run into him several times: there is not a genuinely nicer guy .He's already won on tour, but I wonder if he's a good enough putter to close out a major or a big tourney... He basically gave Webb Simpson the WM earlier this year. But I'm always pulling for him!
  10. Can you play on the LM more? You’d want peak height to be in the 100 ft ball park, sometimes adjustments in loft can do that, but sometimes a different shaft is needed... As someone who just had a driver fitting there is no way I would’ve gotten my specs dialed myself, but if you have access to a LM and free time... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  12. I think your post might’ve changed her mind! I think she really just wants to find a lady instructor she can relate to: her being a 6’1 lefty makes her a bit of a unicorn... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. How old are your wedges? If it’s basically time for new ones, it might be easier to go full T-100. I’m assuming you like both sets equally and it just a loft/gapping issue? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. I’d love 18 pars! But I would assume a par round for me would include at least 1 birdied par 5 and at least one bogeyed par 3 Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  16. Abraham Ancer is one that I expect to have a solid pro career... Throwback shout-out to Vijay Singh: I think people forget how good he was during the “prime Tiger” era Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. Looks will definitely make me pick up a putter, but feel will make me put it down just as quick. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I always hope my wife plays well: otherwise I have to ignore her and that gets awkward when riding in the same cart. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  19. I carry: 43* AP3 48* AP3 52, 56, 60 vokey sm7 I’m a fan of full swings Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. Golf is not a game of perfect Dr Bob Rotella More about managing expectations and moving on from the previous shot than actual technical swing aspects. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. I suffered from this for almost a year: kept making my grip stronger, and hitting bigger push fades. Went to another instructor for lessons and he spotted my elbow immediately. It still amazes me how ill revert back the instant I’m not paying attention to it... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. The only person I give any golf advice to is my wife: and I’ve seen 100% of her swings. She’s down to a 20 handicap, and has exhausted my knowledge, nowadays I’ll mention she’s aimed farther left than she thinks, but that’s about it. Ironically, she “doesn’t think she’s good enough for lessons” Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  23. Edit: I’m no longer a fan of this shaft: it’s 100% my fault for buying a driver when I’m not in “golf form” but my swing speed is just too much for it anymore, and I’m basically trying to time the face on every swing. And if I could do that successfully, I’d be a much better player! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  24. This! I have directional/aiming issues... Also, anything in 50-85 yard range can be brutal for me. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  25. Here's my breakdown: Driving 8.9, Approaches 8.0, Chipping 1.2, Sand 4.3, putting 1.4 Revkev, Are these numbers your handicap by club type? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
