    I also put my putter headcover with the wedge, it makes it stand out more as the headcover sticks out instead of just the club hiding in the grass.

    Also similarly if you have a repair tool, that is the flip open type, you can use it to prop your wedge up on, again like Nateyeight it will help it be propped up off the ground a little, and make it a little more visible to you or your playing partners.

    Anytime I walk to green with more than a putter, the headcover is always on it. When I take it off it gets thrown in the pile. Have forgotten clubs on green but as soon as I put putter away I know it. Have never lost a club.

    I have an Epic Flash 4 Hybrid and it goes between 190-210. Regular flex shaft. I like it because I can swing it like my irons, I struggle with a wood off the deck. So the 3 hybrid may go your 200 carry that you are after. My swing speed for my hybrid is around 85

    Beat me to it.  I was thinking about license plates and tractor seats.
    Heck, Egon Spengler collects "spores, mold and fungi."  (Movie reference for those of you that might not know.)

    Came here to say this.
    Some people collect putters; others collect stamps, baseball cards, watches, hubcaps, hats, etc etc.
    Like cnosil said - people collect things because they want to.

    There is some good feedback in the unofficial thread. I've chimed in a few times over there.

    I just switched from a GBB EPIC to a PING G425 Max and noticed a massive difference. I hit way more fairways and the difference between a good strike and a bad strike with the PING is minimal. The GBB EPIC though, majority of my bad strikes were OB. I am a high a high handicap player too, and hitting fairways are more important to me. Make sure you get a good hybrid you can flush, and that can make up any distance you may get with another driver on those longer holes.

    Same for me with the epic; the bad shots were just incredibly bad. I switched to the 410+ , then the LST this year.

    slow motion video is generally the way to go, just have a fiend to take a video of a few swing, bring it to slow motion and compare.
    I have the same problem when I drive indoor at my friend's house, I tend to have my shoulder at same height to avoid hitting wall and ceiling when driving inside instead of having them like it should be. Also outside I move the ball a little more forward than inside, again to avoid contact with the wall and ceiling. It change my angle of attack and ALSO for some reason allow me to hit the ball more in the center of the club face. When I drive outside, I rarely hit them sky high due to that.

    @Nateyeight For me I know that when I sky the ball it is because I hit down on the ball too much with a steep swing. (At first it was counterinutitive to me, like if I am hitting down shouldnt it be lower than if I were hitting up on the ball???) Are you getting marks on the crown of your driver? As everyone else mentioned, check your tee height and impact location with foot spray (I use target brand, any brand as long as it is the spray that dries white) and also get a slow motion video of your swing face on so you can see what your swing looks like. Ask a buddy or bring a tripod to the range. Get on a launch monitor if you can as it can also help you identify the issue. I see that you have Los Angeles as a location. Go to the Roger Dunn in Santa Ana if you can as they have a lot of GC Quad bays and you can just hop on for free!

    @NateyeightNo quick internet swing fix here, since it could be due to a number of reasons. I can share with you my issue when I sky the ball is when I don't pay attention to ball position or tee height. It happens generally once every 2 or 3 rounds for me and generally when I'm on automatic mode and not paying attention. So part of my routine on the tee box is to be  very precise on tee height and where the ball is relative to my lead foot. 
    FYI in addition to the foot powder suggested by others, it  wouldn't take much to do a close-up slo mo video of your swing (driver striking the ball).

    Sounds like a swing issue. Just because you have tilt in setup if you aren’t swinging with a proper sequence you will compensate somehow and more than likely you are coming over the top and hitting down.
    As mentioned above spraying the face will show you where contact is. Video of your swing will show you how you are actually swinging launch monitor will tell you what your swing is doing and what’s it’s impact is on the ball flight

    The good Doctor will fix almost any strike pattern problem. Spray face hit a few balls, dimples will be apparent. Wipe face, spray again and try making adjustments until you get strikes you are happy with. 
     
    Once you get good strikes you can make some swing improvements. There are many different reasons why you could be hitting it high, but this is usually a good starting point.
