  1. 1. I'm 22 and from North Dakota 2. Current Average Swing Speed: 120 on a Sport Sensors Swing Speed Radar 3. Above average 4. The long-term effects of over-speed training are some of the more fascinating and promising ones in sport science right now, and it would be a huge thrill and privilege to contribute my own set of details and data to that growing body of evidence and share every bit of the 48 week process with the MGS community.
  2. Two of my favorite sports-related companies are MGS and Driveline Baseball. While Driveline focuses on player development, and MGS focuses on equipment reviews, I think the two companies share a similar approach to business; namely, they're both extremely data-driven and insist on providing service that makes their community better at its sport. Does anyone else share an affinity for these two groups, and if so, how else do you think they're similar or different? Also, are there more examples of this type of data-driven, community-focused business in other sports?
  3. Woods, hybrid, and irons are all hand-me-downs, and they're great clubs. Driver is a Callaway XHot; Stiff Project X Shaft; 10.5° 3 wood is a Callaway Razr X; Standard Shaft 3 Hybrid is a Callaway Big Bertha Heavenwood; Standard Shaft; 20° Irons (4-P) are Callaway Diablo Edge; Steel Shafts; No modifications Vokey SM5 52.12F Vokey SM5 56.14F Vokey SM4 60.04 Putter is an Edel Faldo G90; had a 50g counterweight in the handle, but I took it out. Grips are Golfpride CP2 Bag is a bright yellow OGIO that I won in a drawing. If you were me, which club(s) would you upgrade first?
  4. Four 4-irons. Seeing some "batted cleanup" symbolism here.
  5. Was playing a tournament at a course for the third year in a row. Each of the first two years, on hole 7, I hit a 50 yard hook OB into some backyards bordering the course. The third year, I said, "I've learned. I'm gonna hit something straight." So I teed off with a 7-iron and hit it in the perfect spot, but it left me with a long approach. I took out my 4-iron and snapped 3 hooks into the backyards from the middle of the fairway. Finally, I took my 7-iron out again and just advanced the ball up the fairway. Nothing like hitting 7-iron 7-iron wedge into a 360 yd par 4 before 3 putting for a 12.
  6. Please, please, please, don't take 6 practice swings, stand over the ball for 10 seconds, and top it 20 yards (or throw a dart to 6 feet). No problem if you top it 20 yards, just hit, learn, and hit again--while we're young.
  7. A test of side-saddle putters would be interesting. Perhaps it would be hard to find a group of testers with enough familiarity with the stroke though. The super-mega-long drivers would be an interesting test too. I'm thinking clubs in the Krank category that typically draw long-drive competitors to put them in their bags.
  8. Really appreciate the response and information! I have a hard time justifying subscription-based products too, especially when there's extra cost hiccups like you mentioned. Any performance tracking/ game improvement system you're thinking about switching to when those original sensors give out?
  9. Arccos. Can't decide if it's worth the investment or not. Any satisfied users?
  10. Had never broken 80 in a tournament round. Last round of the high school season. Was +4 on a par 72 through 17. Last hole was a long par 4 with an approach over water to a narrow green. I took a 9, but you better believe that 79 still felt pretty sweet!
  11. What's the difference between Shrek and a bowl of carrots? One is a funny beast and the other is a bunny feast!
  12. Played a few days ago in a brief reprieve from a cold spring. Grass was brown and greens were hard, but it was awesome.
  13. I love playing and walking. It gives me a chance to slow down and take in the outdoors!
  14. I'd play mini-golf with 1. Ben Crenshaw 2. Brad Faxon 3. Dave Stockton and I'd still be a crappy putter afterward!
  15. It has to be The Greatest Game Ever Played for me. Nothing like a young Shia Labeouf to make a movie worth watching! Just kidding, he's pretty average in this one. It's a great story though, and Ouimet's caddy is a phenomenal character.
