Ordered 2 more dozen of the Taylormade Tour Response Stripe balls.  Taylormade.com was out but Sports Academy accepted my order, hopefully they have some in stock because they gave me a 2 week delivery date.  We'll see.   I haven't found them anywhere else, started looking for them about a week ago.

Got myself the New Arccos Putter P3 sensor.

Bought 2 sensors for both of my current putters, so I could track statistics between my gamers and the back-up.

Lets hope it works better than the previous generation putter sensor.

Just bought a MacBook Pro.  I know it probably doesn’t belong on a golf forum, but I’m excited to get this bad boy going.  Besides, I’m going to fill it up with DECADE yardage books and MGS review material anyway, so it’s kinda golf-related!  😂

And I also picked up this. I prefer GPS over a scope just because I'll never be good enough to where the 5 yds in accuracy lost will ever make that much of a difference in my game.


With apologies for picking on this small part of your post...

With a GPS, the question isn't ±3 yds, or even ±5 yards.  It's that GPS can be more significantly off than that.  I've experienced 20+ yard variations in the past, often enough that I don't like using GPS at all, unless I have no other choice.

Just picked up myself a new Scotty Cameron Phantom X5.5. Unfortunately it's rained the whole week here in beautiful Indiana and I haven't been able to test outside, only inside. Very excited for this, I had a Newport 2 previously.

I've been slowly donating my golf balls to the OB and water hazard gods. I picked up a box of Maxfli Tour Matte White balls yesterday as a preemptive refill to my go-to Softfli matte white and matte red balls. I can't imagine I'll notice much of a difference at this point in my game, but the glowing reviews and price point made it a no-brainer to at least try a box.

I'm not going to say that you're wrong but perhaps maybe it's the GPS? I golf with plenty of guys on a regular basis who use scopes.. and not cheap ones. My Garmin watch that I use allows me to pin point the approximate spot on the green where the flag is located and I've never been outside of 10' and rarely am outside of 5' and I'd say 75% of the time I'm within 3'. This is why I chose the Phantom 2 because it has the same green location function so not simply F, M, B. 

Now I will say that when I decide on a distance and what club to pull,.. 99.10% of the time I'm short or long, or my ball goes 20 yds left or right of where the pin was measured.. it's me 😄

Nice! With the new M1 processors those things are pretty sweet. My Macbook Air from 2013 finally got too old last December, and I was looking at the MBP to replace it, but ended up going with an iPad Pro. Doesn't do everything I need it to from a work perspective, but I'm usually in the office on my iMac so it makes a great complement to that.

For some strange reason I can't get the song "oops I did it again" out of my head.. not sure why..🤣

Anyhow.. I stumbled upon these beauties. I picked them up for a trade though.. not sure if I traded up or down but regardless I got what I wanted. A simple and pure forged blade. These will be my practice set and what's great is that I could combo them with my ERG's as the lofts are right in line.

The "pies de resistance" however are the shafts. Discontinued FCM Precision rifle Flighted shafts in perfect shape! I had these on my other Mizuno Blades and I've been looking for some more. These are 6.5's which by my understanding is close to S+ flex (not to be confused with PX 6.5) which should be perfect. They're also cut to +.75 which is perfect!! The stars appear to have aligned on this set so I just had to make the trade happen. Vintage + great shape + blades + FCM shafts cut to my length. 

0301221140.jpg.e150d629986753ef66643add8127516f.jpg

Now I know this last one might be a bit controversial.. but I picked up this wedge as I've always wanted to try one out and it just fits right in with my new blades. Who knows? Maybe it could be worth some decent money one day😜..

Those Precision Rifles are great shafts. I have a set in some KZG CBs

Now far as the PM wedge I just put mine back in the bag. Mine has a heavy modified sole grind and some weight placement mods but it works for me. As for the PM thing I could care less about him being involved or not with the LIV golf league thing. I am probably the most brand agnostic person on any golf forum. I do not care about the marketing policies , who owns the company or what pro may or may not play them on tour. If I can make it work for me then I will play it. LOL as of now I have 6 different brands and about 4 different vintages in my front line bag

I did say I needed to be done buying stuff but after selling the Modus shafts I decided to pick up some PX I/O shafts to try out.

There are a lot of variables in play. 

One of them is the inherent GPS operating error, the expected plus/minus from actual.  Another is that GPS is only as good as the person who mapped the course allows it to be.  If someone is a bit less diligent, there could be a problem.  

Quality of the unit involved is another.  There's a course near me that had GPS units on every cart.  We found it fairly entertaining that the cart GPS units would give different numbers when parked side by side on the holes.  Sometimes considerably different.  

And there's always possible course redesign, post-mapping, to add another wrinkle.

I've seen enough strange readings to not want to rely on it, hence my own purchase.  The added irony, I play a course that happens to provide very accurate GPS readings.  I know the woman who mapped it, she was a college golfer and both conscientious and meticulous.  GPS users at this course are lucky.  🙂

I got a good laugh at the Bob Does Sports vs Good Good YouTube match - on the first hole, Joey Cold Cuts hit a nine-iron on his second shot and came up a good 80 yards short of the green, and the Grant and Garrett were killing themselves laughing because he got the GPS number from the cart, but they had started on the 10th hole and it was giving him the distance to the 1st hole.

Guys in our Saturday Shootout mess up like that all the time because it is a shotgun start--- One of my partners is bad about it. He was giving an unreal reading the other day. I was shooting the yardage with the old dependable Precision Pro I tested on here years ago ( still kicking and still accurate) I never moved from shooting told him out the side of my mouth wrong hole. Not only was it the wrong hole but the wrong side of the course
