  1. It's that time of the year again! Who's ready for some fantasy football?! This is your Official 2019 MGS Fantasy Football League Thread. Let me or @GolfSpy STUDque know if you are interested in playing this season as the league generally fills up fast. Please only apply if you plan on keeping up with your team the whole season! It is no fun when people throw in the towel after the first few weeks go poorly and THESE PEOPLE WILL NOT BE ALLOWED BACK INTO FUTURE LEAGUES. We have some teams from last year's league that won't be permitted into this year's league, for this very reason. With that said, prior year's league members who participated all season long will have priority to joining this league. The League will be run again on Fantrax which was gracious enough to waive their fee for a split division league. They have been working hard to fix the bugs that they had last year and are continuing to make improvements to the site, as well as, the app. Fantrax is our best bet for such a large league with split divisions. Last year the league was 28 teams strong it was much easier to run it all through Fantrax, than it was in the past with two separate leagues on ESPN. What are we playing for you might ask?! Well pride of course. That and what we can call The Golden Ticket! Which is the ability to test and review anything you like in the following year. Who wants some shiny new toys?! Alrighty, let's open up the floor for questions. Please DM me and Co-Commish @GolfSpy STUDque with your email address if you would participate in this year's league! Please follow this thread as there will be more info to come in the coming weeks.

  3. Hi everyone! I guess it's rolling around to that time of the year. Fantasy Football is upon us and it's time to get the Official MGS League kicked off! The league is open to everyone although priority will be given to past participants who were active in the league. We haven't set a league size yet but will most likely be using Fantrax as our league site. The league is free and the prize or prizes are TBD. Please only commit to playing if you will finish out the entire season and be competitive. Nothing is more annoying in FFB than an absentee owner who doesn't set his lineups and gives up halfway through the season because his team may not make the playoffs. This season I will be bringing on @GolfSpy STUDque to help co-commish. The league has grown so much over the years and he's done a great job with the MGS Fantasy Golf league. So who wants to commit to playing?

  6. Alright ladies and gents its getting to be that time of the year again and it's time for me to restart our MYGOLFSPY fantasy football league. If memory serves, I believe @Fireinthehole is our defending champion! So lets see if we can take that title from him! Anyone can compete and there is no buy in. I just ask that you be able to set your lineup each week and be sure that you do not give up on the season if you have a few bad weeks. Those who quit midseason will not be playing in leagues to come. So what are we playing for you may ask? Well... @CarolinaGolfer2 was kind enough to donate his Evnroll ER5 putter he got on test from MGS to be our grand prize. I'd like to say a quick thanks to him for being so generous! League rules and size are not set yet. The number of participants we have will determine all of that. I have multiple ideas in mind. As for right now, the draft date and time are not set either. Also, people wanting to compete in a money league are more than welcomed to play in one of my other's. I had a couple of fellow spies in there last year. Message me for details on it. Let me know if you have any questions. All I need are email addresses and confirmation that you would like to play. Good luck to everyone!!!

  15. My goal was to get out and play today to give a full review of this driver on the course but the weather has been so cold and rainy that it hasn't been possible yet. Instead I took the driver up to Golfsmith to get on their launch monitors and at least have some numbers to post. It took me a little while to get warmed up since I haven't swung a club in a few weeks but overall the club performed extremely well for me. I am very pleased with how low the spin stayed since I normally have a hard time getting below 3000 rpm's. I usually swing around 100 mph and currently play to a 3.8 handicap. My shot shape is pretty straight overally but I tend to favor a slight fade so my spin numbers are usually a little higher. I was a little scattered with my impact position on the face as you can see from my picture but for not playing in so long, I wasn't too upset. The driver shaft length was a little long (almost 46") and the swingweight was around D5. I usually prefer no longer than 45" and a swingweight of D2. The sound was a little hollow sounding but nothing obnoxious at all. It may also have sounded differently because I was in the fitting area indoors. Overall my averages were: Clubhead Speed: 100 mph Ball Speed: 145.6 mph Launch Angle: 14.7 degrees Backspin: 2298 rpm Total Spin: 2352 rpm Total Carry: 250.2 yards Total Distance: 274.19 yards Offline: 5 Yards Given these numbers I'm pretty excited to see what it does out on the course. I'm sure using real golf balls my spin will decrease some compared to whatever they have in the fitting area. Once I got home I shortened the shaft down to 45" and added a few grams of hot melt through the screw weight port. This should help the sound quite a bit and gave me my desired swingweight after I cut it down.

  21. One of the more interesting grips to come from Golf Pride in some time. 31% softer vs. any other grip in their line-up but just as stable. Something you couldn't get before from a softer grip like this. And since we have one sitting in the office I thought we would send one out to one of you guys. Cause we know some of you got some ugly grips on your driver(s). Mine might actually be the worst. And if you do, tell us about that ugly grip. The more descriptive the better! HOW TO ENTER Tweet the following for a chance to win, and fill in the blank telling us about your ugly, torn, disgusting grip you currently have falling apart on your driver. @GolfPrideGrips & @MyGolfSpy - #Ineedanewgrip because mine is ______________.
  22. New Year, New Gear This is the time of year when we all get a excited about new golf gear. I'm not going to lie; I get a lot excited. Work keeps me from attending the annual gear gorging at the PGA Show, but I, like you, followed along as best as I could through the wondrous MGS coverage. I loved seeing all of the new stuff, and Golfspy Tim's #boothbabeselfie campaign was classic entertainment! Really though, for me, it's all about the new gear. Every year, I try to envision myself playing the new stuff, wondering and dreaming about the effect it will have on my game. This year, I was so wrapped up in new gear that I even had to make a spreadsheet to keep track of my choices when trying to answer my own Best 13 Club Set thread in the forum. New gear excites my mind, opens up new possibilities, and really ramps up my anticipation for the golf season. new New NEW! That's my typical January golf brain. Then I re-gripped my putter. Most of the time when I change the grip on a putter, my psyche remains stable. No associated huge flashes of insight or clarity. This past time was different though. This re-gripping came on the heels of looking at a bunch putter grips for the MGS 2013 Putter Grip Run Down. How many grips was that? Just take a look at this box full of putter grips: Never before have I had so many putter grips to choose from. Against all odds, I settled on one grip, had it installed, and then after rolling a ball… BAM! POW! Revelation! Discovery! What happened? What was the revelation? What is this amazing putter grip? The grip I put on doesn't really matter. The point is that it was a grip that I frequently have used on my putters in the past. I had 30+ grips to choose from, and I went with the old favorite. And you know what? It felt FANTASTIC. Because I know it's killing you not to know, here's the grip: Orange Jumbo Iomic The moment of clarity was the interesting thing though. I had access to everything that was new, and I went with the old standard. That grip made a huge and immediate putting difference. As soon as I put on the Iomic grip, my putting improved dramatically with that particular putter. Was it the grip's weight or geometry? Could it be the color or texture? Could it be familiar comfort translating to confidence? If I'm making putts, I usually don't ask why. Even if I did ask why, this time, I knew the “new” grip was responsible. I've Done This Before, You Likely Have TooThat putter grip revelation drove me to think about returning to other favorites instead of the new. There have been numerous times when I have tried new gear, be it clubs or accessories, only to return to the tried and true. I have a feeling that I am not alone in this. We get emotionally excited for the new, but return to the familiar once the novelty has worn off. I think that many golfers are likely to experiment with the new and different golf grips. Grips are not an expensive experiment, especially if you compare cost of the cost of re-gripping a club or two to the cost of getting a new driver. I usually buy a couple of new grips, put them on woods or wedges, and then make a decision about changing the rest of the set after playing with them for a bit. If I like them, new grips for all! How many times do you pull the new-grip trigger? Not just replacing the ones you wore out with the same grips, but rather installing a totally new style. How many times do those new grips make it to the worn out stage before you swap them out for something else? Not all experiments are successful. Sometimes we need to return to our happy place. My Happy Place Grip: Golf Pride New Decade MultiCompound (NDMC) Although they may have the longest name in golf grips, Golf Pride's NDMC is the grip that I always return to after trying other things. I have had extended play relationships with other grips. A white set of PURE grips lasted a season, as did the latest set of now-wearing-out Lamkin Crosslines. However, when I decided to re-grip, my impulse was not to put on another set of Crosslines, but rather to return to the New Decades. I enjoyed the Crosslines. I even played some good golf with the Crosslines, but the first impulse was hello again Mr. Golf Pride. The desire to return to the New Decades shouldn't have been that surprising. One of the guys who I play with weekly plays my old set of '09 Burner irons, sporting some nice red New Decades. Every time we play, I notice those grips, or to be fair, I covet those grips. Maybe it's the color or maybe it's the memory of playing with them. I don't know. But when the re-grip question came up this month, New Decades were the answer. And they are New, New Decades! Now lest you think that I have lost my taste for the new, the set of NDMC's that I am installing this time is a new-for-2014 batch of New Decade Multicompound PLATINUM grips! Last year-ish, Golf Pride added the whiteout variant to the NDMC line, this year, the Platinum. What has changed? Well in the NDMC-P, the cord section is now platinum grey as opposed to white or black. Are the NDMC-P only cosmetically changed then? I hope so! I am looking for that same New Decade feel and play in a fancy new color. The perfect situation is getting a new look, but still behaving like an old favorite. I first played NDMC grips in 2009, and I want these new ones to feel like those. However, there is nothing wrong with adding a bit of new 2014 flair. With the standard, the whiteout, and the platinum versions, NDMC lovers now have more aesthetic options than ever before. This is great! Although the loss of purple from the New Decade palate saddens me greatly. What Are Your Golf “Comfort Foods”?As I said before, I don't think that I am the only one who tries new equipment for a while, only to return to the same staples over and over again. Will we ever stick with what we know works, ignoring the new? Not likely. New is exciting. New holds possibilities. New is, well, NEW! We should go with what we love, but maybe we will love something new more. What is the golf thing that you return to? What is the Forrest to your Jenny? Wait. Don't tell me yet. Let me make it worth your while. If you tell all of us, you can… WIN A NEW SET OF 2014 GOLF PRIDE GRIPS One lucky commenter below will win 13 grips from one of Golf Pride's New 2014 Line up. You can win a set of either the new CP2 Pro, CP2 Wrap, Tour Velvet Super Tack or, yes, even the New Decade MultiCompound Platinum Series. All you need to do to enter is post the following information in this article's comment section: What is the piece of golf equipment that you always return to playing? If you are the winner, which of the four 2014 Golf Pride grip lines will you select and why will you pick that grip line? Good Luck!
