Been thinking about this one for a bit. Anxious to get it out today On An away Course, along with the D9 Forged to see how they do.

Recently sold mine. It was giving bad yardages and freaking me out. I started trying to confirm with my range finder and the S60 was more than 10 yards off. Never could figure out how to calibrate it but at that point it might have been in my head. Just got the V1 Game app.

I ran into that a few times today when my partner shot one distance to the flag and I got another off by 9 yards once and 12 the next. 
 

plud the navigation isn’t as easy as I was led to believe

Going back to ShotScope. Ordered the H4 this morning. Signed up for text alerts from DSG and got $20 off $100 or more, so grand total was ~$140 with taxes and free delivery.

Arccos hasn't been bad lately, but I couldn't stomach the renewal fee this year. Just the renewal would have been more than the cost of the new ShotScope device. They've also been really slow at rolling out their new dashboard. I'll miss the caddie for wind adjustments, but that's about it. 

I have said in the past that I wished a company would go back to the Game Golf tagging setup and ShotScope delivered. Plus the tags are much lower profile than the Arccos sensors. Excited for it.

The H4 looks perfect. I had not heard of it until reading your post. I tried the Arccos last year because of the free sensor offer from Ping. It was finicky with picking up shots with both my iPhone and Apple Watch which further made me question the value of the fee for the service.

I've mentioned before my Ram Tour Grind affinity.  Was sitting around last weekend, unable to play golf thanks to the glorious Minnesota April weather, after having played the weekend previous.  As one does in such situations, the mind wanders...

I began thinking of what I might do for rounds with a classic bag configuration.  I'm already playing what most would call classic irons, it's an easy transition.  I have a full set of Golden Ram TW282 Tour Grinds, and a nearly full set of TW276 Tour Grinds; I've been missing the 2 iron in the set.  Was thinking of how I could rig the lofts of my 1i and 3-PW in that set, thought what the hell, do another useless search for TW276 on ebay.

And I get a bingo, a rather nice condition TW276 2 iron, for a reasonable price.  I actually hesitated a full minute before hitting Buy It Now.

It arrived yesterday.  Sharing a few pics below.

The only real issue is that I need to reshaft it, and that set is shafted with NV105 graphite, something not really available anywhere.  I have a tapered hybrid NV105, may use that in the 2i, and shaft up the 1i with something else that could be reasonably close in weight and flex.  Not a bad problem to have.

One showed up last night and the other today!  Huge shout out to @rkj427 for the headcover. 
 

2ndSwing described the Sik as MINT but I would call it excellent. There is definitely signs of use and to me mint means it looks like it hasn’t been hit. Still more than happy with it though so I’ll quit the yelling at the cloud for now lol. 
 

It has a heavier head than most blade putters I’m guessing at 370g but I think coming from mallet putters this is the perfect weight for me. Another interesting part was Sik says the slant neck is half shaft offset but this looks to be at least 3/4.  I do really like the curved high toe look. Can’t wait to get this to the practice green tomorrow if it isn’t raining. 🤞🏻

Nice putter now I am going to ask something out of ignorance. Is it set up as say an arm lock or set up like a regular putter? I am familiar with the loft set up whether one forward presses or not. But I was mainly curious just all

I am guilty as charged on saying on here and WRX something like the clubs are bassackwards. Now I did at one time play with my bud we call Ballz who is a lefty and I got used to it driving the cart. But I have not played with him for a while due to his Dad's death ( my old running partner Little Bear). Usually as SOP I let the lefty drive the cart ( ask John Smalls). LOL one of my sometimes Shootout partners is a lefty but he insists I drive the cart. When I screw up he will shout "wrong side wrong side" He is a hoot anyway. His real name is Marty but he sounds like Dick Vitale so we call him Dick. Like I said he is a hoot and I think he loves to give me crap.

As @BIG STUor any of the Florida guys like @Rickpwill tell you, everyone living in a warm winter climate has an intense dislike for them, be it rational or not, we can’t wait for them to leave.

My friend Frank came down to the Myrtle Beach area for about 4 winters before finally buying a home and moving down full time. He wasn’t “a local” 3 weeks when we’re in his car going over a swing bridge to leave our community. We’re stuck behind two old ladies in a golf cart loaded up for the beach, and they’re going about 10-15 mph. He starts ranting about “these damned snowbirds!!!” 
Thr guy hadn’t even made a mortgage payment yet and he already hated them. 🙄

LOL there are a bunch of folks like that down here. There is a little Murrells Inlet group on FB full of those types. A guy that I met on there is now a permanent Shootout partner and moved around the corner from me. He is from Ohio. I met him after he closed and was seeking local info and I helped him and we became friends. Now he is not like that. But he did catch some crap on that site and he figured out that it was not from the Southern born and bred folks like myself but fellow "Yankees". Yeah some of the transplants like to play off like they have been down here all their life. I got into it with one such over the pine tree pollen. I drew him out though. Found out he was from NY and had lived in Charlotte for a few years before coming here. I only mentioned the fact I was North Charlotte born and bred and he shut up. Yeah some of them think since they have moved here no others even from their home state should move down. I noticed after I called him out most of my posts were shut down for commenting rather quickly

I got off that FB site told them I did not need their sanctimonious "plastic" BS. I have no problems with anyone as long as they do not act like a Richard Noggin and I could give 2 hoots less where they were originally from as long as they act like decent human beings. My bud from Ohio has since gotten off that site too.

It’s 34.5” long but I will be cutting it down to 33” as that is where I’m currently at with my other putter.  I thought about armlock but I’d like to try one in store before making that leap.

... I was a snowbird for one season to see if I wanted to move to Phoenix full time. The one thing I don't care for about snowbirds is driving up the price to play during the winter. Courses I can play for $39-49 during the summer cost $250 - $350 during the winter. Kinda goes with the territory because with plenty of sunshine and warm weather it is perfect conditions to play all winter and there will be those coming down for a long weekend, a week or a little longer That are willing to pay the $250+ to play because it is soooooo cold at home. As the saying goes, don't hate the player hate the game.

So today I used my new-to-me Callaway Epic Max Heavenwood...

1803982943_EpicMaxHeavenwood.jpeg.3cd6b6a3f63e5a12c0fa9fe1ef3fef36.jpeg

I haven't had much luck with fairway woods, which is why I went to exclusively to a 2H.  The head is 20º, so more lofted than my 2H, but with weight further back in a FW and the club's low profile face, it launches much higher than my hybrid.  I opted for Project X Cypher shaft in senior flex... well, because... I'm a senior!!  I have the same shaft in my Epic Max driver but it's a regular flex.  The senior flex in the Heavenwood is very easy to control, and I hit balls stoopid straight... even for me!  However, I can hit draws with it, which I couldn't do with my 2H.  I even hit a high(er) shot today off a downhill lie from the fairway; a shot that always bothers me.  I'l give it a few more trials to see if it's just a honeymoon phase, but I like this club.

I've been happy with my Heavenwood for the few days I've gamed it.  Soooo, why does that give me confidence that I can hit the Epic Max 3W?  Well, here's hoping that I can.  Ordered it yesterday.  This could change my game... I just don't know if it will be for the better or worse.

The JumboMax grip on my driver is a failed experiment. I just couldn’t get comfortable with it. After seeing @McGolf do a review of the Golf Pride CPX grips on his YouTube channel I thought I’d give it a go. My local Dick’s Sporting Goods had it in stock. it went on smoothly and feels real nice.
