Follow the Progress here! So I am sure some of you have seen my discussion in the “random thread” but wanted to start a longer discussion as I am sure some folks are interested in this. Guess I will start with me. I am not a small guy at 5’11” 203 lbs. I can eat let’s put it that way....and enjoy food of all types. I have tried pretty much anything and everything. Recently looking into just cleaner eating my wife and I decided to go down this road and fully commit. She will be prepping a majority of the meals as I am more of a griller. The reason we decided to do this is we have been eating out a lot more recently on top of not getting as much exercise as we normally would we have just felt ehhhh. On top of that there is a lot of research and proof that several diseases can be prevented and if not reversed by a clean plant based diet. I will be logging daily meals we eat, not all but ones I think are pretty good and appealing to eat. I will also be tracking my weight loss if any weekly. With that I want to make sure A) I feel better but B) see if there is any improvement in my golf game as well specifically making sure my SS stays up With weight loss I’ll be tracking to make sure my swing speed doesn’t dip. Last time out my SS dropped pretty drastically and I think was because I was tired after an indoor simulator day. I want to see if I can keep my swing speed up and my overall energy up. This will be pretty subjective energy wise so I will use a 1-10 scale most likely. For the first month I’ll be pretty dedicated to making sure I’m only eating clean. I will most likely start incorporating the occasional steak down the road but for now it will be strictly clean. if anyone is interested in seeing something specific let me know will be glad to Incorporate. *Also taking suggestions on title name*
I have a Odyssey Marxman White Hot Putter. I tried an Evnroll ER7 and that felt great at a fitting I went to. That head is 370g plus a Evnroll weighted grip. I was looking at maybe buying some stick on weights but they seem to be in .25oz increments. Plus I don't need a whole box of 90 weights! Thoughts/suggestions?
EXPOSED: PEEK INSIDE 9 OF THE HOTTEST DRIVERS IN GOLF https://mygolfspy.com/a-look-inside-9-drivers Quite shocking to say the least. The hotmelt is being used to bring up the head weight to their required specs at the factories. The problem is obviously it could make each head slightly different - feel, balance, and sound. Knowing this, I would be afraid to order any non-weight-adjustable woods "online". This also answers the question about why my (tour-issue) 2017 M1 460 head came with "lighter" weights than the retail model. The head (with the weights and the hosel adapter) weighs exactly 200.0g, which means it pretty much guarantees there is no hotmelt inside. Truly enlightening! PS: I am now curious and want to open up my divorced retail R15 440 head, which never fully cooperated for the past 3 years... Forgiveness aside, any hits besides the bull's-eye dead center were complete garbage.
I'm really happy to report my order is in for Srixon Z745's and I'm going with Steelfiber 110 stiff. I still like a fair amount of weight for feedback, but have enjoyed going a little lighter with shafts like PXi's in the last couple seasons. I'm still playing S400's in my wedges, which I like, and know the distances and trajectories, but I'm not a real high spin player and usually "hop and stop" is about the extent of my wedge spin. Not bad, but I do wonder if the S400 doesn't mitigate spin too much for me. For those who also game or have gamed Aerotechs: which wedge shaft did you go with? Same model and weight? Heavier? Different shaft altogether? Right now, I'm leaning toward the 110's in the wedges as well. 125 I wonder if it too wouldn't be akin to the S400, if not less spin. Guess I'd appreciate any feedback on the 125 from those who have hit them. Thank you!
