  1. Scott/Poulsbo WA 11.5 Sketchers Go Golf Pro Comfort and stability, I walk 90% of the time so I need to be able to walk 36 holes on a weekend and not feel like I want to cut my feet off after 18 and I need to feel connected to the ground when I swing. That can be a challenge with some shoes. As a runner I know shoes matter, that sentiment is validated in golf.
  2. Name/City State: Scott, Poulsbo, WA How Often do you Practice Putting and How Long? 20-30 minutes prior to a round. How many 3 putts do you average per round? 1 or 2. What interests you most about Exputt from what you have seen or read? I bought a Birdie Ball surface for Christmas and worked 4-5 times a week for 30-60 minutes, but that tapered off when the courses opened back up. Practicing on a putting mat just got mundane so I believe something interactive like this would improve my motivation to continue more at home practice. The concept of inserting a challenge into pra
  3. Interesting and good to hear. I purchased an SC300 and if I use it inside I seem to have a pretty good result with catching speed with the sticks, outside seems to be more sporadic. I wish I could figure out how to improve the reliability of readings.
  4. Has that change effected your equipment? While not an official tester I have been running the protocol and have been having some issues with my swing, I have been able to get into a groove, but still not sure whether it is "me" or whether the change has affected both me and my equipment "fit". I get a launch monitor this week so I will actually be able to monitor the change, though I wish I had a baseline from when I started. I will say that when I can get into a 'groove' I seem to have some of the distance I had up into my early 40s back. Look forward to hearing if you/anyone think equipm
  5. Your back and forth on the weights and conversation on this thread caught my interest. Iv'e been playing the G400 for a while and love it, played the 410 for a month while waiting on a replacement for my 400 (it cracked last summer) and I have been debating on 'upgrading' to the 410, but like you, the consistency I have with my G400 has me not wanting to take any chances. Anyway, it sounds like we have a very similar set-up, so no I may consider adding a heavier grip or some lead tape to the heads of my sticks as well to cover any weight difference; maybe I should get a scale first, but it s
  6. @Nunfa0 I can tell you that a smooth flexible swing will benefit you all day long over being tight and trying to "muscle it." I thought about the regimen before as well and decided to try to see how it felt ton two different days with and without the pre-work. The first thing that I noticed was how "bad" my flexibility is (everything went down hill after back surgery and I have never gotten back to where I was before that; follow up with shoulder surgery a couple of years ago and man have things really changed). Personally, I found that swinging after the warm up is much like a run after th
  7. We are fortunate to have a home course with 36 holes so we have been splitting the league up for several years; each team starts on one course one week and the other the following week and our AMAZING league managers (and the course folks) have done a very good job at rotating everyone and the opponents so the play is balanced between courses throughout the season. We played twosomes the first two weeks after opening this year for handicap establishment and it was shaping up to be interesting having to play that way by either splitting up teams to play with your opponent or having to correlat
  8. @Dave P. HPMC, Gold Mountain has platforms installed and Trophy Lakes is using what looks like a piece of styrofoam pool "noodles" in the cups. I played White Horse the Friday they opened and the "splines" seemed to reject putts a lot more frequently than what I have been seeing with the platforms at GM or the "noodles" at Trophy today. But the upside down cup still beats the neck out of the raised cups. Enjoy the sunny days when you can.
  9. @Golfspy_CG2, Sounds like a sound plan. We are doing leagues, but no shotgun start tournaments for the same reasons you list. That makes sense. The struggle we faced with league play was trying to get 48 or more players off as two-somes; when you go from 12 tee times to 24 tee times if really stresses the window and it isn't like we can start early on a weekday as most of the players are still working regular days. The one item that really has me perplexed is not having holes on the putting greens; why not have holes, but not the flags/sticks? I get the whole keep multiple people from tou
  10. @chisag, Yeah, I wondered and talked to several folks about it. The most frequent response was that they (management) was focused on figuring out how to work within the boundaries of the new rules and make things work on the course, like 2-somes only and individual carts etc. One of the big issues was having enough carts and also trying to "police" everyone to keep from having and issue with local...umm..."authorities"(?). A couple of the courses just don't have enough of an off course draw to make the restaurants a priority, but knowing the income margin for food and beverage over golf it
  11. Not sure how to make the change on the PRGR, but if you multiply your M/sec x 2.237 that will give you MPH.
  12. Very interesting opportunity. I played 1986 model Titleist blades until abut 2003 when I shifted to Mizunos, then the P790s in mid-2018; I still miss the feel of the pure blade. Scott, Poulsbo, WA 7.5 TM P790 Icon
  13. I am also not a big fan of pod casts, though I get the medium; sometimes I just want to be about to skim the material to get to the parts I want know about, other times it is a great way to occupy the other part of my brain while I am "working" on something else; the problem there is that I occasionally find myself having to go back and rewind several times to catch what I missed while focused on that other thing. I am really interested in seeing the results here. Especially how companies like Vice and Snell come out in comparison with Titleist and Bridgestone. As a Quality Manager I c
  14. @ChasingScratch intersting dry run. Man I thought that driver looked familiar. I am looking forward to seeing how this works out for all of you testers and in particular, how it all translates to "regular play" swing speeds. I bought a set, but I do not have a radar (yet) so it will be interesting to see if I see any real world change myself without having numbers to compare while going through the protocols. Best of luck to you all.
  15. @B.Boston Now you're cookin' Sorry, I couldn't let that one go by...
