  1. Brilliant idea in regards to picking up the driveway sticks from Lowe's instead of paying $20+ for "golf" alignment sticks!

  3. Amazing - I'm waiting to find a steal on the TM Spider X Copper now... The 3 items I've seen purchased in "value" condition all turned out to be mint. I don't know how globalgolf evaluates their clubs but I am not complaining one bit
  4. Hello, from Toronto! Excited to a part of this forum: Q: How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Joined the junior program at the local club when I was 9 years old. Obsessed ever since. Q: What do you love about golf? It's really you against yourself! No reason for excuses and there's always room to get better. Q: What brings you to MyGolfSpy? In the last few years I've rediscovered my love for the game of golf after having taken a bit of break when moving from my hometown to a big city (Toronto). When I arrived in Toronto I didn't really know how I was going to keep playing because of how much more expensive it would be, and how much less accessible courses are. Last year, I stumbled upon a custom club fitting studio here in Toronto called TXG. They really opened my eyes to "the data" aspect of the equipment performance aspect of golf. Somewhere along the way I found MGS and was blown away by the thoroughness of the staff that are involved in testing AND the honesty they bring to the industry. Pure Class! Q: Where are you from? What is your home course? A "small city" called Cornwall in the eastern part of Ontario in Canada. I grew up playing and working at two different golf courses: Cornwall Golf and Country Club Summerheights Golf Links Both courses were amazing, quiet, and affordable to play as a kid - and still are as an adult! I would probably be a member at both if I still lived in the area Q: What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best: Fall golf in Canada is incredible. Around October, the leaves on the trees start changing colours and it absolutely beautiful outside no matter what course you are playing. Worst: Being in Canada, the worst part is that I can't golf year round (it snows ). Golf courses are really only open for 5-7 months of the year, but they still need to pay the bills, so golf is generally more expensive here. Q: What do you do for a living? By day, I am a Building Performance Engineer What's that? Well... I keep a close eye on the operations of really big buildings (malls, office towers, etc.) to help the folks who manage and operate those building use less electricity and gas to them save money and have a smaller impact on the environment! Q: How’d you pick your user name? just keeping it simple! (twitter, instragram).
  5. Unreal! I am playing Mizuno 825 Pros with the stock S300s in them (off the rack). Been thinking about getting them (and my P790 2i) fitted and reshafted with something stiffer and heavier for a while now. Any advice on where best to look for iron shafts?
  6. Golf is expensive...I bet a lot of us get a bit sad when we see the price tag of new clubs in retail stores. Most of us probably can't justify spending ($500-$1000) on a stock or custom fit club or much more for a set of irons, but it is amazing what deals you can find on the internet! Personally, I haven't bought a "new" club in years, but you'd never know from looking at my bag. So, I'm curious... what are your BEST finds from second hand sources like kijiji, ebay, globalgolf, secondswing, etc. that are in your bag? If you picked up a Scotty at a garage sale for $15 you win My Top 2: Taylormade P790 UDI 2i - KBS Hybrid 80S Shaft My pride and joy...Picked this beauty up Sept 2019 from globalgolf.ca ($130 CAD taxed+shipped). Listed as "value" condition, but I SWEAR it had the plastic on it Cobra F9 Driver - Black & Yelow (9 deg) - Fuji Atmos Black TS 7X - No Headcover Purchased Feb 2020. Bought from globalgolf.ca ($215 CAD taxed+shipped). Listed as "value" condition, but there is NO CHANCE it had ever been hit. What's the best deal in YOUR bag?!
