  1. 1) Taichi Onishi, las vegas nevada 2) Truthfully, I dont do anything besides play golf once a week. 3) never owned a putting Matt. I have used my friends puttout matt. 4) classic, 8ft, medium speed, 3 flags, 2 side A 1 side B, and U bumpers.
  2. Never 3 putt. I can drive it 300+ yds. Be interesting to hear more from people that do both well and see what they choose
  3. IMO, the different tee boxes are there for a reason. I think people should play from the tee box that offers normal opportunities with their skill set. Even if there is betting involved, typically we'll have a rough understanding of each players ability so having golfers play different tees is ok with me. Played today with people I didn't know. They sheepishly said they are playing from the white tees while I was playing black tees. This course has gold, black, blue, white, and ladies tees. My response to them, which would be the same response to anyone im playing with, is do what you do. It worked out perfectly because my tee shot ended up right around theirs so we would have similar short to mid Iron distances into the green. The only thing about longer hitters moving up in tee boxes, especially when there is betting involved, is that par 4s may start to be driveable holes and par 5s are easily reachable in 2. I understand the idea of not using driver and course management but how many golfers do we know (including myself) will pull driver out instead of 3 wood or hybrid?
  4. Also consider the ping glides 3.0 and mizuno t20. MGS and other places have shown what influences moisture has on wedge shots (spin and launch characteristics) with the ping and mizuno coming out of MGS testing for wet conditions.
  5. I think rest is an important part of training. More so when you are injured. Don't risk missing more rounds because you "rushed" to get back out there. Like @Letthebigdogshunt said, imagery is powerful training. Body can't do what your brain doesn't comprehend. You could imagine different and isolated parts of your body during your swing, or playing a hole in your head, etc. Might help with the mental part and course management part of your game too. Good luck. Hope you figure out whats bugging ya and you get better
  6. Always been android. The greatest thing about iPhone is the usability. Little children to senior citizens are able to navigate iPhones. Samsungs 8 and newer battery life is life changing. Also, androids come with fast charge capability where to my understanding, you have to buy an adapter to have fast charging capabilities on an iphone. Charging from 30%-100% in ~1.5 hr is great. I guess another thing I don't like with iPhone is that Apple almost forces you to stay in their bubble. At the end of the day, much like golf, to each their own.
  7. Taichi , Las Vegas NV Current: '09 volkey spin milled 52°&56° callaway xtour 60° I would choose 52° mid

    That's annoying. You would think as an adult, people would grow out of high school tendencies but that isn't the world we live in. I hope continue to play. Like people have said, there are plenty of awesome people out there that play and plenty of cool members.
  9. Just food for thought. I recently saw a video TXG posted on youtube where they compared the titleist velocity and proV1. No noticeable difference in distance but major differences in spin characteristics, especially on shorter shots. Most people would have guessed this. This is the caveat. Since high hdcp players miss more greens, they need balls that spin more where better players want balls with more spin. So age old question of performance vs $ With that being said, I see a lot of last years srixon z-star/z-star xv on sale now for under $30.
  10. I'm the opposite. I usually think I do worse than I actually do. Not sure what your hdcp/average score is but I think scoring in the 70s is all about super high GIR% and under 32ish putts per round. The missed greens will quickly add up over 18 holes. As far as tricks to snap a streaks of bad scores, I'd be rich if I knew that answer
  11. Taichi Onishi - Las Vegas I've used the GPS on the golf cart and golfpad which is an app for yardages via GPS and to keep score. I use the app mainly.
  12. I would go try some clubs at a big box store just to get an idea of what flex shaft generally works for you. If a regular flex works for you, I would also recommend the callaway edge set at costco. If not, checking out second hand shops works great. Not sure where you're from but in so cal there are stores called Play It Again Sports and they are basically a second hand sports equipment store. I picked up a set of titleist DCI for about $100, a used bag for $40, and a putter for about that. Basically, get something cheap so that you can work on your swing first before getting shiny new equipment. If you have a lot of disposable income, look at any of MGS most wanted lists for your set, go get fitted, learn to hit those clubs, and enjoy.
