  1. What has been the biggest benefit you've found from getting the lessons (in general, not just remotely)?
  2. Awesome write up! I think this seems to be the more popular route people (and including myself) are considering when buying an iron set. I worked at a golf shop and you could always tell an educated golfer when he talked about split sets. As I've become more experienced, my pride for playing my bladed 3I has decreased and I've made the decision to buy a more consistent 3H. What have you noticed in term of feel? Both models were very popular amongst shoppers and I've thought about a set myself. Again, great write up!
  3. Absolutely agree that the greens are the first place I start when rating a course! That seems to be a common theme amongst many public courses in my area and I'm glad that at least the head groundskeepers agree with us. Just to add to your post, I think amenities to the course are very important. For example, water coolers around the course or the cart person riding around fairly constantly. These couple of things will put the cherry on the top for many courses and it shows they care about the little things too!
  4. I bought some Puma Ignite high tops and I definitely found a break in period. Also, after about twenty rounds, I found one of the spike wells had fallen out. Not the spike itself, the well where the spike is attached. I luckily got a refund and I used them to get a different brand. They were certainly comfortable though after I broke them in!
  5. I worked at a golf shop and these were by far out best seller. Biggest selling point was how well they held up in any condition! People would also come in with those grips wore out and they said they've had them for a few years. In my opinion, best choice for a grip.
  6. I'll take those restrictions than no golf at all!
  7. I spent two years of college in New York and I met some great golfers there! I played an interesting course called Apple Greens in Highland, NY. It was so fun since it was inside of a functioning apple orchard! As many New Yorkers know, upstate is known for their apples and even one of the greens was shaped as an apple! Tough and challenging course but super fun!
  8. true true, maybe I'll use my stimulus package as an excuse to upgrade lol
  9. I know if I go to a professional fitting they will want to add an exotic shaft and I just don't want them to convince me to spend an extra $200 on something that might shave a stroke.
  10. Location and Age: Burlingame, CA 24 Current Driver SS: 111 MPH Rate your fitness level: below average / average / above average: Above average Affirmation that you will see the entire program through: I am a detail oriented golfer who enjoys improving myself in any way. I have 4 days off during the week and especially with COVID I would dedicate numerous hours data testing!
  11. These colors are pretty sweet but the gratification will obviously go away quickly. Plus, it's not like they will last any longer than any other grips. Unless your club color matches the grip it's certainly a luxury buy (and there's nothing wrong with that once and a while) lol
  12. I also just read a MGS review of hybrids and they brought up a great point. Just because you have different degrees on your clubs, doesn't necessarily mean the distance will be different. Spin, trajectory, club length and head design will influence the distance. Either hit em or take em to a launch monitor.
  13. I was working for a golf superstore and Cleveland was offering a special offer for employees. 3 fully personalized and customized RTX-4 wedges for $100! Loft, stamping, grips, anything. Just $100!
  14. Another vote for the MCCs. I really like how they can play in all kinds of weather. I used them in a tournament while it was raining cats and dogs and they held up really well. My confidence in my shots increased since I didn't have to worry about them flying out of my hand. I'm currently playing some Champkey grips from Amazon and I was actually surprised. They are significantly cheaper, have cool designs, and some good feel.
  15. Recently I've been motivated to upgrade my shaft and spend the extra money on something I really like but my wallet doesn't appreciate wasted investments. Have you tried an aftermarket shaft upgrade?
