  1. I have tried them and I do enjoy using one! I like saving money when I can and I like the workout from carrying it for 18. I didn't notice any differences in my game when I used one vs not! Sent from my SM-J737V using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  4. No push cart for me yet just a bag carrier. I like the extra workout I get from hauling it around for 18. I'm also a mid 20's guy so my opinion may change within the next 15-20 years! Sent from my SM-J737V using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  5. Newer player that picked up the game 3 years ago but can confidently say I am a golf addict and enthusiast. Here is the toss of my hat in the ring for this! Handicap and Location: 25 hdcp.

  6. About a year into playing I picked up some Ray Cook wedges (52 and 60 degree) and have been gaming them since. I really like them and have since added a TM milled grind 56 degree. From the TM milled grind to either of my Ray Cook's I can't tell much of a difference in them when it comes to performance and feel. Any other Ray Cook wedge users out there? What has your experience been with them?
  7. Thank you so much for the response this is really helpful. Now to get some epoxy!
  8. Not many. If I had to guess maybe 30% of my shots in general land past the hole due to me know they will almost certainly roll out.
  9. I understand. Thank you for the response! I believe I will revisit this when I have my game more under control.
  10. Since I am a ball-finding fiend I usually play with found Pro-V1's but if not I regularly use either the Callaway Chromesoft, or the TM TP5. I guess I am not sure how hard the greens are I play on!
  11. When I am close to or around greens I notice my ball never has any spin to make it check up or even when I am taking a full swing with a higher lofted club farther away. Is there some secret to getting the ball to roll back or check up on the green?
  12. The shaft with my hybrid is graphite. I have been noticing this a little on my newer irons as well which are steel.
  13. If the ferrule might be rising up the shaft would this be an easy fix with just pushing it back down to the club head? Not home right now to confirm this but your reply is giving me some slight hope right now.
  14. It is easy sometimes to forget that golf is a physical sport. I've been of the mindset that warming up before a range session or a round is key to playing your best. But sometimes, either due to arriving later to a tee time or a rushed range session, it gets missed. Do you guys warm-up too? Is this something that you find you don't need as much with golf? Am I hurting my game by not doing a warmup in these cases?
  15. I've started to notice that the head of my hybrid seems to be pulling away from the ferrule of the club. The space between the two has started to get noticeably bigger the past couple days. Should I be taking this in to get repaired? I don't want my club head to go flying on a random shot and lose it. Or worse, hit someone.
  16. Hey everyone, When I first picked up golf I despised walking a full 18 due to not have a bag with good straps or a stand. A cart was convenient, easy. Finally, almost three years later after picking up the game my fiancée gifted me a new golf bag with great straps and stand. A major upgrade over my thrifty Goodwill bag! And for the first time in my extremely young golf life, I found my love of the walk. For so long, I always thought a cart was superior and walking was just a hassle. I could not have been more wrong. Who knew a good bag could turn me into such a walking fiend. Besides my own philosophy of walking keeps your legs activated and ready for the next shot I love being outdoors. Although it is more of a pedicured nature walk, I'll take any time when I can hear the birds chirping and the person a hole away swearing at another duffed iron shot. I feel like I may be alone in my thinking as a lot of my friends who golf always want to take a cart. What does everyone else prefer?

  18. Thank you such an in-depth response! I just recently watched a video with Rick Shiels explaining how he handles 30yd-100yd shots and the use of the clock system. The equal parts back and equal parts through is something I know I need to work on for confidence and consistency.
  19. Thank you very much for your reply and the videos too! I found the rule of 12 to be quite interesting when it comes to deciding what club to use around the green when chipping. Definitely going to be referencing these videos when I feel lost in my chipping.
  20. Hello everyone! Just a green recruit over here wondering what everyone's thoughts are on this. Every time I am near or around the green in scenario's in which I need to chip the ball, I am always wondering what the best wedge in each case would be? I currently have a 52, 56, and 60 degree in the bag. In most cases I always default to the 52 since it should be the easiest club to chip with but I've been wondering if there are clear cut instances in which I should be switching to a different given wedge? Appreciate all the feedback in advance!

  22. Hello everyone! Excited to become a part of a passionate golfing community! Thank you very much for having me. 1.How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been playing golf for about 3 years now! From the rounds I have played I have calculated a handicap of 25.9. 2.What do you love about golf? There is nothing more peaceful, challenging, or rewarding than playing golf. For me, someone who loves being outdoors and in nature, this has become one of my favorite activities. I wish I had picked golf up sooner. 3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I have been thinking about joining a golfing community that shares the same passion and vigor the sport as I have. Learning that this is a dedicated community that loves testing and comparing the best equipment piqued my interest right away! Sadly, I do not know any other spies but I love making new friends and I hope to learn and cultivate my game along with all of you! 4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Originally I am from Lacrosse, Wisconsin but currently live in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. My home course is Blackstone Creek Golf Club in Germantown, Wisconsin. 5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best things about golf in my region is that I have a lot of options of different courses in a close area. I also love not sweating through all of my clothes when I can play rounds in the spring and fall! The worst things about golf in my region is that some courses can become very wet even from a slight rain. Oh, and the humidity too! Makes holding onto clubs challenging at times! 6. What do you do for a living? I am an Environmental Health Specialist for a local health department 7. How’d you pick your user name? Simple and effective, like I hope my golf game will become one day!
