Picked up this (available on Amazon)...

20220624_151046.jpg.2d3fbaea435400b624c543ee0bcf1fae.jpg

Jon Sherman is the founder and author on Practical Golf; seems to post a lotta good info about playing the game of golf  (ie. on course coaching, and not swing instruction).

The first part of the book is all about "Managing Expectations" - which I really really need.....

Then he goes into.. "Strategy", "Practice" (he also does a podcast with Adam Young) and "Mental Game".

Lots of charts, tables, data, illustrations to help reinforce ideas. The whole thing looks very well produced and presented, and really looking forward to digging through it!

I just bought the Kindle version after hearing the interview with Jon Sherman on the Golf Unfiltered podcast.

On top of the 3w coming, I grabbed a Tensei av white 65x with xlink to try in driver. Also want to try the blue for more launch but can’t find that shaft in 65x anywhere besides in a new driver from Callaway. 

His podcast with Adam young is the bomb. I was tempted to get his book but I already obsess about golf too much

Spin for varies from potentially to low to too high. Contact point and club delivery will cause this but will also affect launch.

What is your current 

Launch

Peak height/Apex

From my ventus setup, launch i believe was maybe 10*-11*. I don't remember from my session. Land angle was 33 or so. As for peak height i don't remember peaking at that data point. ball speed was about 153.

Definitely room for improvement. If you are getting 10-11* and sun 2500 spin that’s going to be a problem especially with that land angle. With that low launch you would want/need more spin to help keep the ball in air probably around 2800 spin.

Your land angle should be 40-45ish

When doing your testing pay attention to all those numbers on each strike. They all matter when trying to find the best fit

agreed. hence why i want to try the AV Blue (i know shafts to affect launch too much). As well, I am wondering with the swing work i have been doing, if my high spin off the tee has now gone low and now my epic max ls may be too low spin for me. May need to play around with the loft sleeve to find out. When i up'd my loft with the ventus up to 10*, i was seeing spin around 3k.

Typically more loft is going to add spin. I know Howard posted in one or several threads what the change in loft would do to spin as well as how much it changes based on every iirc 1/8” change on the face location. Based on the ~800-1000rpm change iirc from a previous post you had the added loft it closed the face and quite possibly what happened is made your face to path worse and probably changed your dynamic loft as well which when all combined added the large increase in spin. 
 

I’ll be curious to see what your numbers are with the tensei shafts.

Its possible the swing changes have affected your swing path, face to parch, dynamic loft, aoa and possibly contact point on the face that when all combined don’t produce the right launch  characteristics. But you would need to compare all those numbers from before and now to see what/if anything changed

Thanks to Ebay I now have a matching 3&4 irons on the way to fill out the 5/PW MP 60s I bought the other day.  Total investment will be just shy of $150.  😀

Hit up the Peter muller store in Chicago. Got a sweet transfusion polo and a really nice quarter zip hoodie for fall golf. The sizes really work well so it’s a treat to get to the store vs online shopping. Plus the Father’s Day cooler bag was a nice touch even if I spent a little more than I wanted !C70A39F7-34E2-4BAA-8D66-D557CD631841.jpeg.1a4d349afde3e39cdcfd3d8491f4f967.jpegD6DB445E-E8A0-4873-A822-BE9692ABBE21.png.41935b984f9c0a47273b6ed81acdefd2.png

Having given up on Arccos, I decided to try Shot Scope.  It should arrive tomorrow.  I understand there will be a learning curve as I get accustomed to how it works, but am looking forward to it for sure.
