  2. Chad, Mount Joy, PA 8.7 handicap, 8-iron carry is 150 yards. Mizuno MP-18 SCs I know that Sub70 is a direct to consumer company and from reviews I have read are creating quality products while cutting out the middle-man retailer.

  4. Name/City State: Chad, Mount Joy, Pennsylvania How Often do you Practice Putting and How Long? 2-3 times per week, 30 mins per session How many 3 putts do you average per round? Unfortunately, at least 1 if not 2. What interests you most about Exputt from what you have seen or read? The ability to get real time feedback on the putts, based on more than just the feel and result.
  5. Add another one to my list! Made birdie on the 2nd hole for the first time today. Still have a few more to go (3, 6, 10, 18). Two par 3s (3 and 6) and two par 4s. I guarantee 3 and 18 will be the last to go. I missed a 4 footer for birdie on 10 yesterday morning.
  6. Oh man, this is tempting. Haven’t seen a Velocore with a Mizuno tip before. I really like the Atmos... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. I actually liked them a little more around the greens. The XV definitely is a little "clickier," as it is harder. But the Z-Star performed as well for me around the green as the ProV1.

  9. I am absolutely ALL over this! There are definitely some holes that are going to hold me back on this. But with all the golf I'm playing this year, I hope to be able to accomplish the Birdie/Eagle challenge! I'm estimating that the last one for me will be the 3rd hole, a 200+ yard par 3 that has water protecting the left side of the green. I hate that hole. My home course is Highlands of Donegal in Mount Joy, PA. It is a links-style course on what used to be rolling farmland. It's open, but the fairways are narrow, the windy is using blowing, and holes 7-9, called "Charlie's Corner," can take a decent front 9 and squash it real quick. #1 - Slight left dogleg par 4, but usually plays into the prevailing wind, making it longer than the scorecard says. #2 - Short but uphill par 4, once again usually into the wind. Elevated green protected by several bunkers. #3 - Hellish par 3, 200+ yards from the Blue and Black tees. Front left of the green is protected by a pond, leading often to a bailout to the right. #4 - 90 degree dogleg right. A solid driver or 3 wood can cut the corner and leave only 100 yards in, but be wary; it's OB right, so any miss in that direction means it's 3 off the tee. #5 - Long par 5 with a narrow landing area. OB in the cornfield left, and water that protects the front-left and left of the green. Not much margin for error if you go for it in 2. #6 - Another long par 3, playing 185+ yards and a big green. Can lead to 40-50 foot putts very easily depending on pin position. #7 - The start of Charlie's Corner. Relatively short par 5, but often requires 3 shots due to the shape of the hole and the blind descent down to the small green. OB right and hazard all down along the left in the woods. #8 - VERY short par 3, but still not easy. Only plays 90 or so yards, but it drops about 40 feet. Anything long goes into Little Chiques Creek behind the green, and the front bunkers are no fun. #9 - What an awful hole to end the front 9 on. Only plays 275, but requires a mid-iron off the tee for positioning purposes. Fairway slopes left towards the water hazard, and there's a large tree that protects the right side of the green. Have to be left to have a decent approach shot angle to the green. #10 - Straight away par 4, fairway bunker on the right is reachable with a good drive. #11 - What to hit off the tee? Driver or 3 wood puts the waste area in the left and right into play, and even a pulled 3 iron can get you in trouble. Play it out to the right to be safe, even if it means a missed fairway. #12 - Straight forward, slightly uphill par 3, but a big green to deal with, as well as bunkers on both sides. #13 - Flat and then dramatically uphill par 5. The landing area for driver has a fairway that is only 5-10 yards wide, with a fairway bunker on each side. Five bunkers and a false front protect the highly elevated green, so any shot that comes in low going for it in 2 is asking for trouble. #14 - Short, downhill par 4. Open on both sides, but several areas of native, tall grass vegetation are ready and waiting to snag an off-line tee ball. Positioning is more important on this short hole. #15 - Another 90 degree dogleg, this time on a par 5. Uphill from the tee to the fairway, the corner is protecting by a line of trees, a fairway bunker, and OB stakes to the right. A solid drive gets you up close to the top of the hill, but then it's still 200+ yards home, even with the best of drives, and the shot will likely be blind. Aim at the 2nd power tower, and you're in decent shape. #16 - Short par 3, plays a bit downhill. The green protected in front by a bunker willing to catch a shot that gets caught in the wind, which is often swirling on this hole. #17 - The penultimate hole is nothing to be trifled with. A slight dogleg left, this lengthy par 4 usually plays into the wind, making it often driver-long iron to reach in 2. Good preparation for the following hole. #18 - Long par 4 to end the experience, anyone? 450+ yards from the Blues/Blacks, with the drive going uphill. Once again, will require a long iron for the second shot to a narrow green protected by a pond on the right. If this hole is into the wind, it plays more like a par 5.
  10. I've played a ton of golf this year (even with a 6-week COVID-19 hiatus), and early on I decided that 2020 was going to be the year I found the best ball for my game. I used to just play whatever I could get that was cheap (i.e., <$20/dozen), regardless of brand loyalty. So earlier this year I bought and tried Titleist Tour Soft, Callaway ERC Soft, TaylorMade Tour Response, and some Titleist ProV1s. I had played ProV1s before, but only when I found them because I was too cheap to pay $4 per ball. I ended up finding a deal on LetGo where I got 5 dozen for $25/dozen, so I couldn't turn that down. Despite me wanting to love the ProV1s, I only hit them okay. So when I saw Srixon balls were BOGO for Father's Day, I decided to buy a few dozen ZStars and ZStars XV. After playing each for a round or two, I am absolutely smitten. So smitten that I sold the 3 dozen ProV1s that I had left over and hadn't marked and used the money I got to buy more Srixons. The balls absolutely fly off the face of my driver off the tee, feel solid yet soft with my irons, and are super responsive around the greens. Literally the best feeling ball I have played. If you're in the market, take advantage of the BOGO deal! You won't be sorry.

  13. Chad / Pennsylvania 8.5 handicap No current hybrid I have always had a hard time with hybrids because I am a normal right-to-left player and couldn’t control them. A hybrid that is non-draw biased intrigued me a lot. I would like a hybrid in the 17-18 degree range, so it’s above my 3 iron and below my 3 wood. Want to fill the 205-240 gap I currently have.

  14. Rick Shiels swears by his Cobra F7 3 wood. Loves the rails along the bottom.
  15. A Mizuno devotee like me! I also go from Mizuno driver (ST180), 3-wood (ST190), and irons (MP-18 SC).
