  1. Just a note here, that I have been told by one of my club fitters that different brands might use a different torque spec so be carefull relacing or mixing them up. If you end up using one with a high enough setting above the original you could strip your shaft threads...
  2. OK I found it on the phone...then went back and I was indeed blind. It was just on the way left side of the scree and I didn't even notice it. Thanks.
  3. How are you getting to a place that shows smash factor? I only see yards, launch, spin, ball speed...
  4. Looking back at some of the past comments about this program I keep seeing people talk about "expert mode". I dont see a way to get into that on the current version of the website. Am I just blind?
  5. it was free. Just had to enter in my email to get the results.
  6. So I just did the trufit thing and I was happy to see they recommend the same shaft I already use. However, it says ball speed 158mph, launch of 13*, and spin of 1950rpm = distance of 301. That seems off. Using Flightscope shot optimizer those same specs give a carry of 260 and total yards of 271...My Launch monitor (mevo+) agrees that even with 160.4 ball speed and 2149 rpm and 14.5 launch (to pretty close to the trufit numbers) i got 260.8 carry and "roll out total" as 285. (for consistancy sake the optimizer app shows those specs having a carry of 266 and total of 275 - which seems pretty close to my real world averages) I am curious what algorithim they use to get that total distance. Seems like they might be inflating the numbers a bit to try and get people who don't know their real numbers to jump into "gaining 16 yards and 6% more accuracy" by buying a new driver.

  8. The club I play in is pretty small and mostly 15+ on handicaps (maybe 5-6 of us are single digit), but we still try and play as much to the rules as possible. Several times people come in with an x on the card becuase they didn't want to finish a bad hole. I play by the rules with my ball, but when a "competitor" asks about a drop or somethign I always say sure. I am just out there for fun I don't need to be the jerk enforcing rules on people who are happy to break 100. Lets keep it fun people!
  9. ONLY!?! Lol..I wish. I play like once a month when I am lucky. (not including range/home net practice) That said, my wedges are the SM5's that came out in like 2014 and I still sometimes spin the ball off the front of the green. Now my grip is slick and in wet conditions it doens't spin as well, but I tried replacing it once and i switched back fairly quickly as I was way more consistant with my old wedge. Having said all that, I am eagerly awating "upgrading" to the SM9's once they are in stores. I figure $180 every 8 years really isn't that bad price.
  10. I think it is an interesting idea, but I would also probably not purchase it for 2 main reasons. 1) My kids are crazy so I wouldnt really want them to have real clubs and balls in the house. If it was outdoor maybe, but then it would need to be able to handle the elements, pets, and compensate for non-level ground (most interchangable tiles to will not doe this). 2) Being a snap together, it would likely be difficult to make it roll tru over those connections so it couln't really be used for mroe serious putting practice when the kids are not around/interested. I do wish you luck though!
  11. When doing you wedge shots, how do the club head, ball speed, launch, and spin differ from club to club? If your club head is the same speed, but launch angle and spin vary, your distance should too.
  12. Same number of playoff wins since 1996 too...
  13. Growing up playing golf with my Father I always cringed when he and his buddies would flirt with the cart girl such that now I almost never go up to the cart when it drives by. Just an instinctual wave that I'm I don't need anything...Plus, I have a wife at home to flirt with.... I will typically grab a beer in the bar after the round if my playing partners are hanging around. Like previously said I am a bit picky on the whiskey/cocktails selection at most golf courses.
  14. I don't drink a lot when I play, but when I drink I like to drink good stuff. Most courses don't have a very good top shelf. So I will occasionally bring a little bit of what I like for days when I am there for enjoyment over shooting my best score...
  15. I agree that on course practice would be ideal. But where I live, you wouldn't have the time to hit that many shots on the tee. The courses are too busy. With the Launch Monitor I can use it in my yard set up a hole and practice hitting that shot. Then when I have that "Shot" in my regular round I have confidence I can pull it off. Also, with my current schedule I don't get to a course very often anymore so being able to play a bit at night is nice to keep the swing oiled.
