  1. I've been trying to figure out a cheapish graphite shaft pulling setup for a while. I came across some videos on Youtube (here and here) by a guy who built one from a couple of vises. He's from the UK, so he says it cost less than &20. I picked up the vises for about $20 a pop at the hardware store. I cut out the aluminum cuff myself, but I'm going to get one from Golfworks here shortly, and had the torch and shaft vise collar already. It's a pretty simple design, and it works a charm, so I thought I'd share it in case anyone is interesting in making one themselves.
  2. Hello MGS Community, I'm a long time consumer of MyGolfSpy, but this is my first Topic I've created. The gist of this thread is how to build the best Home Simulator for $4,000. That seems like a lot, but in my honest opinion, this is the lowest cost you can get while getting a full sim experience with true ball data instead of random ball data assumed from club data systems like the Optishot's infrared system. I'm not here to brag about anything as you can see from pictures below that I built this system over a number of years and countless hours of research. In the below spreadsheet
  3. I've designed my own putter, and had it CNC milled. It's freaking gorgeous, and I'm obsessed. It has a flow-neck design, and unfortunately, the diameter male section that goes inside the shaft is just slightly too small for the .370" shaft it's used for. I've tried putting tape around the tip before inserting in the shaft, and it seemed to work, but only for about 2 hours of use, then the head came loose again. I'm using a lot of epoxy with glass beads, but don't want the putterhead to be wobbly or come loose. Any suggestions as to how to make it work? Thanks in advance f
  4. I want to start this by saying that I really like collecting logo golf-balls from courses that I play and sometimes just visit. I find it a complete bummer to play a new course and they don't have a logo ball. In additon to new course play, I also have a goal to play at least 9 - 18 holes in all of the 50 states and of course I collect a logo ball from each course. I've covered 10 states including my home state of Texas. And my evidence that I played is a logo ball. But there are times when a course does not have a ball. Like last week, I was working in South Carolina and played two cour
  5. Just got the wife driver, 3 wood, and 5 wood in Taylormade M6 with Senior Flex. We bought them stock because she's a brand new golfer and got fit into standard senior flex shafts for the M6 irons. Her irons have slightly smaller grips, and I was wondering on the basics of changing grips at home. What tools do I need to do it properly? As a beginner, is it worth it to do on my own? Or would it be better to get it done professionally and practice on my own before tinkering with grips?
  6. I just finished this project in time before we started getting some bad weather here and before things started to get shutdown. I still have a couple more things still to do before it reaches its final form but so far I’m really happy with how it has turned out. The putting surface is a 12’x4’ Birdie Ball Mat places on top of a 4” thick platform. Eventually I will be cutting holes in the platform to install full size cups and adding self leveling feet to the platform. The idea is to eventually be able to adjust the base to replicate different breaks so that I can get more practice using Aimpoi
  7. I decided to use this down time to get the tools and materials necessary to stamp my wedges. I got a 1/8" letter/number stamp set, small (3") anvil, oil-based paint pens and acetone (to clean off paint). I plan to experiment on some old wedges before I do anything to the gamers. Has anyone does this and have any advice or "lessons learned" to help guide me?
  8. I've been doing some at-home analysis of my stats for the past 16 months and wanted to share in the hopes that you might be able to provide some ideas or insight into what else could be done with this information. After every round I input date, score, round index, number of: birdies, pars, bogeys, doubles, triples, putts, GIRs and fairway percentage into a google drive sheet. I then update scatter plots that show score vs.: birdies, pars, bogeys, double, triples, GIRs, putts and FIR and a separate set that shows round index vs each of those stats. My initial goal was to see how each of t
  9. Looking to do some putting practice inside. Has anyone ever made their own version of The Putting Board? I love the idea, but not the price tag ($130). The keys to creating this is understanding if there's any arc in the board, and what the angles are for the takeaway and follow-through positions. I'll let you know what I come up with, but thought I'd check if anyone has already created one. Cheers
  10. It feels like forever since the sun was last shining here in northern England and I was able to get out and hit some golfballs in the garden... although it was actually only 8 days ago! We're forecast some nice dry weather this weekend so I hope to get out there once again and teach myself some basics to improve my short game. Last week I tried a cricket-style shot, as suggested by my brother, where I decrease loft by keeping my hands in front of the club head and pushing through, popping the ball up off the ground and landing with little back spin. It is a delicate little shot, wh
  11. Great forum, great community, and I am sure one of the knowledgeable members has come across this question before (or, can point me in the right direction). I have used the search bar some to pin point this topic to some effect, but haven't come across the answer that satisfies my curiosity. I already know and understand a dynamic fitting and static fitting work best for shaft fitting and it's hard to beat a good (and patient) fitter. My question pertains to online iron shaft fitting/recommendations from most of the shaft manufacturers and/or online fitting services: How relevant is a
  12. Wanted to share my golf ball rack that I actually built late last year. I have to say that I am proud of it. Had been eyeing making a new rack for my logo golf ball collection. Had a store bought rack that held 72 balls, but it was quite ugly IMO. I really liked this one and decided to copy it: https://www.woodshopi...golf-ball-rack/ Mine is made from cherry, one of my favorite woods to work with. The example looks like cherry as well. I'm a wood worker and love building things and tinkering, especially if its for golf its a bonus for me. In either case, I'm really proud of wh
  13. Hello, For some reason my 9, PW, W are going short. I expect 10-15 yard increments. What I getting is a much shorter distance. The gap is 20-30 yards. Checked the loft on all the clubs and they are right on the correct loft. I am playing Titleist AP 1. I changed the shaft to the Fiber/Steel shafts. Recently, after considering the weight difference between Kuro Kage shafts and the Fiber/Steel shafts. So I increased the head weight two swing weights on the 9, pw, and w. The yardage increased. Still not up to my Pings. Any suggestions or tip. I am ready to hear them. If all else
  14. Hey guys. I am wondering what the process you use to get out the nicks and dents and scratches in golf clubs you work on? If using a bench grinder, what wheels/compounds do you use and in what order if using several? Thanks!
  15. Im sure that many of you who have went to see your club pro, or went for a lesson have been told the you "need new grips". Its very convenient that the pros are at hand to do it for you. Recently I was amazed when a friend told me he was being charged £20 to get his driver regripped, and that was standard!!! I thought this was steep to change a grip. I went onto eBay, had a hunt and bought 20 Golf Pride Multi Compound Grips for £3 each, plus got to choose what colours I wanted. Then I bought myself some double sided tape and gave changing my grips a go. The toughest thing has to be
  16. I loved the Vapor look and I went to purchase them last year and I was not super impressed, sorry Nike. So this year I did something to upgrade my clubs, for cheap!! First I removed my club heads. I had them all cleaned up and removed rust and paint. I also cleaned my VR Black Oxide wedge. I added Bright Green Grips. I added Bright Green Ferrules with 2 white stripes. (look like tube socks to me) I torch finished my wedge. I blued the split cavity (3-6 iron). Then I paint filled the Nike Swoosh to match the Bright Green. Then white paint fill for a clean look (my opinion). Feel
  17. So I've seen some neat looking stamps and paint fills on this site in the small amount of time I've been here but I'm a hopeless golf addict and love seeing all the different ways people make a club or even a whole set uniquely theirs and I know I'm not the only one. So I started this topic for people to proudly display their masterpieces, in hopes that everyone can enjoy these awesome projects and maybe even inspire others to put a personal flair to their gear. So have fun and may your drives find the short grass!
  18. Recently I've been toying around with making myself a yardage booklet of my home course. I most recently tried the 3UP method. It's a good one but I just lost interest in using Google Earth and the sketch program it requires. I'm just not that techie anymore. So, I'm going back to the old school method of sketching up my own. Well sort of…. I ordered a couple of Yardage Marker™ flip booklets to give myself a little guidance and head start. The booklets are spiral bound and the pages are a nice heavy card stock paper. On the front cover it says, A Do-It-Yourself Yardage Book for the Compet
  19. It was 9Ëš this morning....just a touch too cold even for us Northerners to go golfing. I figured I'd mess around in the shop and see if I couldn't ruin a few wedges. I've been wanting to try the Miura K-grind, but really didn't want to pay for it I like the way they turned out and am looking forward to trying them on the course if it warms up this weekend to anything above freezing. All I can say is I'm really glad I practiced on a few junk wedges first. I'm a pretty handy type guy.....even still.......my first couple attempts were less than stellar! First attempt....complet
