  1. Personally, I've had a little problem with cancer. Peripheral neuropathy is one of the side effects of the chemo, so comfortable shoes are a must. It would be interesting to see if these are truly as comfortable as advertised.
  2. Tim Chandler, AZ. Currently use all sorts of putters, from traditional heel shafted blades to "sidesaddle" putters. I'd like to try the model 3 to see what all the buzz is about.
  3. Tim Chandler, AZ Yes, currently walk the majority of my golf I'm currently 61, and walk when I can. I'm enjoying 5 years of remission from a blood cancer (multiple myeloma), and my red blood cell and hemoglobin count is still not back to the normal ranges. So, while I'm always anemic, I try to walk whenever possible to try to build the red blood cell count. Added to that the peripheral neuropathy in my feet from the chemotherapy, and carrying can add to the burden. I currently use a Sun Mountain Micro Cart for my rounds. I play two rounds/week, and sometimes 3, but also some of them are 9 hole rounds. My brother and I saw a number of these electric "trolleys" on a vacation to Scotland. Sure seemed like a great way to go.
  4. Tim/ Chandler, AZ. Have used a backyard net in the past, but haven't had one for some time. No, never used a launch monitor with one.
  5. Name/City State: Tim/Chandler, Arizona Zelos Model & Flex You Wish To Test: Zelos 8, R2 or Senior flex Swing Speed: 85 mph with a driver Current Shaft/Flex In Use: Dynamic Gold R300
  6. Tim in Chandler AZ. Right handed Primary choice: 18* - UiHi KBS Tour 90 Regular Backup choice: VKTR+18* - Recoil ES 75 F3 Regular Handicap: 11 Currently play either long irons or hybrids, depending on what set strikes my fancy today.
  7. Would love to try one of these. Tim Chandler, AZ Cobra F9 11 handicap 89 mph swing speed TSi3
  8. Sure would like to try these. Tim/ Phoenix, AZ. 12 Handicap Current wedges are Wilson TC's Raw finish's primary appeal is reduced glare (it's really sunny and bright here in Phoenix).
  9. Sure would love to try these. Currently have some C200's and F5's, as well as some FG17's that are still fun to play. Wilson is very under rated, and their irons are as good as anybody's. Tim/Chandler, AZ. Current handicap is 10. I have a lot of different sets I play. Last week it was Bridgestone J40. Was planning on the Wilson C200's next week.
  10. Tim Frigon Chandler, AZ Have used the Golf Buddy, but currently use a Bushnell laser finder. My brother uses one of the GPS watches.
  11. I've always liked Tour Edge equipment. I've had drivers, irons, putters, and of course their fairway woods and hybrids. First Name / State of Residence - Tim/Arizona Handicap - 12 Current Hybrid in Play - Adams or Wilson, depending on the set being played that day. What is the most important thing to you in a hybrid - Playability, launch angle, and distance.
  12. I've used alignment aids off and on. Currently "on", as it likely doesn't hurt. I'd use this opportunity to conduct a "designed experiment" using a statistically significant number of putts both with and without the alignment aid, and look at the difference in performance. Probably do it on both straight and breaking putts and from two different lengths. The theory is that it becomes more beneficial on longer putts, as shorter ones don't require the alignment precision of longer ones. Probably need to estimate directional variation from the hole rather than simply counting "makes and misses" to get away from the attribute nature of that data and provide a better view into directional capability, as opposed to leaving a putt short and counting it as a miss even though direction was good (which all the alignment aid can help). Current handicap is 12. Location is Phoenix AZ area. Current line method is a Sharpie line or an existing ball feature (logo, factory supplied alignment aid, etc.). Ball choice would be ProV1x Personalization would be "Hitnhunt".
  13. Tim, Chandler, AZ Handicap 12 Current model played: Various. Bridgestone J40, Hogan FTX, Wilson D100 Wish to test the Pro Combo set
  14. I'd think any good shaft fitting would do the trick. From a shaft fitting perspective, there's likely not much to choose from with a different brand head on the end of the stick (Hogan vs. Mizuno). If a set is very strong lofted, a softer shaft might gain some launch angle, but a shaft fitting in general would provide the answers, I'd think. Personally, I use both clubhead speed as well as shaft loading. Shaft loading reveals tempo and transition from backswing to downswing, while clubhead speed would factor into things like "toe droop" during the swing. If the shaft gets too soft, and the toe drops excessively during a full swing (requiring a more upright lie angle), half swings can end up with too upright a lie angle. I generally choke up a little on the half swings to restore the dynamic lie angle at the lower velocities.
