  1. Golf podcast about Dustin Johnson minus 30, Phil Mickelson winning on Champions tour, LPGA major The Open winner Sophia Popov and the pushcart queen Lindsey Weaver. We talk about the Fed Ex playoffs, Adidas apparel, and my new Cleveland ZipCore wedge. Miguel gives a shout out to Yootopeagolf.com
  2. From the news feed today. It's sad that the first time I've heard this story was for Forest Fezler's passing but I'm glad to have read it nonetheless (I'm actually younger than the event itself ). Besides the fact that he had a hell of a golfer name, I think it's so awesome he had the guts to publicly throw a middle finger to the USGA in its biggest event. It's one thing to do it before missing the cut, it's another to do en route to a runner up finish on the 72nd hole. I'm sure this was quite controversial when it happened but could you imagine how bad it would be if someone did it now??? Social media would explode. Check out the full story here: CLICK HERE
  3. Phil had a presser the other day and said that the USGA should use a "halfer" instead of the Stimpmeter to measure green speed. Anyone have any idea what a "halfer" is and how it works. Or, is Phil trolling every golfer in the world? https://www.golfchannel.com/video/phil-shinnecock-no-7-great-hole-until-usga-gets-hold-it/ thanks, Charlie
  4. Got a little inside info from a friend working with the maintenance boys at Shinnecock; cutting the fairways at .350", and the greens at .095 Except.... two greens will be cut at .105 One of those is almost certainly the seventh, site of the debacle in the last US Open held here. Don't know which other green is getting this treatment.
  5. I was lucky enough to win the grand prize for the Masters round of the #SpyStaffSlam year long contest. The prize was ANY set of Wilson irons custom built to my specs. This probably won't be a great review, for that I apologize. The "challenge" I had was last fall I was custom fit for a set of Mizuno JPX 900 forged irons, so I wasn't in the market for a new set of irons. However, I needed to get my 12 year old son a new set as he's outgrown his junior set. I was trying to figure this out for some time in terms of what to get him, senior/ladies/reg flex, a teen set, length and all of those things that had to be figured out with a pre-teen, not to mention that he's a lefty. So I opted to use this chance to get him his irons (yes, I was very jealous - my first real set came from Kmart). After looking at all the incredible choices Wilson offers I settled on the C300. These are beautiful irons for sure, and I elected not to get him the forged as the regular ones, as far as I researched, seemed to have some more forgiveness. The challenge now is what to do with length, lie and flex. I do not live close to a fitter so I had to take the static measurements, and research online. I decided to go with the XP90 regular flex shaft as it seemed to be on the lighter side for, but also a regular flex so he can continue to grow into them. The stock length of these irons is long (7 iron is 37.5" compared to my standard length of my JPX 900 which is 36.75"). So I had them cut .75" short, which made them just .25" shorter than my set. He still needs to choke down on them, but they're more manageable. To compensate for his height and the length of the clubs, I had them set at 1* flat. For grips I got him the standard wilson grip. These are beautiful clubs! He was ready to go hit them right away and so we went out. It will take some getting used to for sure, but it will come. So while I cannot give you a full review of performance, the process was simple and they were shipped quickly and to spec. He is now set for this year and many to come and I am so looking forward to playing golf with him and my daughter for many years. Thank you My Golf Spy and Wilson for the amazing prize! It's the closest thing to winning the lottery as I'll ever get.

  7. Tiger Woods registered for 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont By Joel Beall While his camp claims he still has no timetable for return, Tiger Woods has taken the necessary steps to enter the 2016 U.S. Open field. Though agent Mark Steinberg denied reports that the 14-time major winner is definitely playing in the Wells Fargo Championship in early May, Woods has registered to compete in this year's U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club, Golfweek reports. Woods filed on April 4 for the tournament, which runs June 16-19. In recent weeks, speculation has ramped up regarding Woods return. Tim Rosaforte mentioned the possibility of Tiger playing at Quail Hollow on May 5-8; another tournament that makes sense is the Memorial, which Woods has won five times. Woods hasn't played on tour since the Wyndham Championship in August. The last time the U.S. Open was held at Oakmont in 2007, Woods finished one stroke behind Angel Cabrera for the title.
  8. America's Championship is here. Can Phil complete the career Grand Slam? Will Tiger survive into the weekend? What about Rory or one of the other young guns? Is there a darkhorse in the field? Is this Ian Poulter's year to shine? It should be a truly fantastic four days for golf. Here's hoping a playoff makes it 5. If what we're all hearing about Chambers Bay proves to be true, we'll have plenty to talk about over the next few days. We invite you to join the conversation with other passionate golfers while having a chance to win one of more than a dozen really cool prizes will be giving away throughout the tournament. Watch, discuss, and win. It's just that simple. The Prizes: (see the http://www.mygolfspy.com for larger images)

    US Open

    Dates: June 18-21, 2015 Location: Chambers Bay, University Place, WA Defending Champion: Martin Kaymer Featured Pairings: Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Angel Cabrera (Round 1: No. 1 at 7:33 a.m. PT, Round 2: No. 10 at 1:33 p.m. PT) — Mickelson is a sentimental pick to finally capture the Open after six career runner-up finishes, including in 2013 at Merion. He's finished second in the last two majors. Watson is a two-time Masters champion, while Angel Cabrera has both an Open and a Masters title. Jordan Spieth, Jason Day, Justin Rose (Round 1: No. 1 at 2:17 p.m. PT, Round 2: No. 10 at 8:17 a.m. PT) — The Masters champion? Check. A Masters co-runner-up and former U.S. Open champion? Check. A guy who could've won both by now? Check. Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler, Louis Oosthuizen (Round 1: No. 1 at 2:28 p.m. PT, Round 2: No. 10 at 8:28 a.m. PT) — Woods draws Players champion Rickie Fowler and 2010 Open champion Louis Oosthuizen. So, two guys who have won the last three Open Championships played at St. Andrews and the guy the USGA thinks will win this year? Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott, Sergio Garcia (Round 1: No. 10 at 8:17 a.m. PT, Round 2: No. 1 at 2:17 p.m. PT) — While Scott and Garcia are not playing their best golf, they're compelling players. However, the headliner is Dustin Johnson, who is one of my picks to do well in this Open. Martin Kaymer, Gunn Yang (a), Rory McIlroy (Round 1: No. 10 at 8:28 a.m. PT, Round 2: No. 1 at 2:28 p.m. PT) — Can Rory McIlroy make it five majors? After thousands of miles of travel in a busy stretch caught up with him, will he be refreshed at Chambers Bay? Martin Kaymer hasn't been the same guy since winning the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2. What kind of defense will he have? Webb Simpson, Keegan Bradley, Kevin Na (Round 1: No. 10 at 8:50 a.m. PT, Round 2: No. 1 at 2:50 p.m. PT) — These guys are all interesting characters, but in the rare themed group this year, the USGA put perceived slow players together.
  10. So this is the one Phil wants so badly he can taste it. What do you guys think - are you "buying" or "selling" on Phil winning this year's Open? Got him on my Fantasy Team, so I'm buying. With fairways this wide open, it might be his last/best chance...
  11. We are almost into 2015, and this is one of the tournaments I'm most looking forward to for the next calendar year. Not just because it's the US Open, but also because of its location. This should be a really unique challenge for a lot of the competitors, and it looks stunning! Check out how the course is shaping up...

  14. 106 sleeps to go! 106 sleeps to go! I was really looking forward to Chambers Bay being my first US Open experience (spectator, not player, in case you were wondering). Alas, work schedule looks like I won't be able to make the voyage to the Pacific Northwest in time for what should be an amazing tournament in an even more amazing setting. I'm sure some of you have visited Chambers Bay - though it has undergone somewhat of a reconfiguration in recent times. I thought I'd provide the details of what the course looks like now and the changes that have been made: Want an indication of the excitement of the locals in hosting this tournament? The USGA says it normally takes 3-6 months to recruit thousands of volunteers to help conduct a successful U.S. Open... it look less than two days last year for 5,000 people to sign up (registration closed within a matter of weeks, not months). Yeah, the Pacific Northwest is kind of excited about its first U.S. Open! I love the fact that this is going to be a Major on a links course in the US - and that you and I can head along and play this public course at our leisure.
  15. Surprised this hasn't been posted yet, but here's what was in the bag for Martin Kaymer during his win at the US Open. He had two 3-irons, one of them was a little longer and bent to a 2-iron loft. Ball: TaylorMade Lethal Driver: TaylorMade SLDR 460 (Graphite Design Tour AD DI-6 X), 9.5 degrees 3-wood: TaylorMade SLDR, 14 degrees Irons (3): TaylorMade Tour Preferred MC; (3-PW): TaylorMade Tour Preferred MC Wedges: TaylorMade TP xFT (54, 58 degrees) Putter: Ping Karsten Anser 2
