Not very happy right now, I am dealing with “tennis elbow” in my right arm. It drastically affects my swing. I can’t ensure that the club head is square with the ball. Getting a lot of Mickey Mantle , Roger Maris & Ted Williams......you know, Dead Yanks! Does anyone have a cure?

If I knew what Rakuten was I might check it...sounds like a brand of ramen noodles.  Googling that one now...

Yeah, reading about it now.  Unfortunately for me some of my golf purchases I need to keep off the wife's radar...this would seem to risk exposing the whole clandestine operation...  😂

The fitting day for callaway that i was going to go to tomorrow got canceled due to the fitter having a personal emergency, which is understandable.

I think instead i am going to go for a driver fitting at Club Champion in a few weeks. I have never had an OEM-agnostic fitting. And I feel I am now educated enough not to get tricked into anything. I will make it clear that i am there for a fitting only, not to make a purchase. I am okay with upcharge shafts, but I will make sure its clear that if I happen to fit best in a high end exotic shaft, that i try other shafts with a similar profile to see if the difference is that significant.

I’m going to be booking a driver and fairway fitting this week. I want to see if I can get a new 3w and a driver I can actually play


Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

So I had to call a few places and I’m driving about 20 minutes further to get into a fitting. The one place closer is booked for a month and a half, obviously I didn’t know this or I would have tried getting in earlier as I would like to find something I can game this year before I start ramping up getting ready for a very hard dog trial. So this place got me in for next week hoping things go well looking at the pictures of what they have it’s all major brands and a ton of shafts so I’m interested in seeing my numbers and what I get fitted for because I’m going to buy probably not through them but I am buying some clubs this year.

A little confused but that’s typical some days.

MGS has made a few updates/changes so I lost my usual access to the Site.  
it will take a little time but it’ll work.  
a lot of Ads though, have to figure a way around that.

A few of the members posted recently about a workaround for eliminating or reducing the ads. Unfortunately I don't remember the thread.

I’m starting to almost like the new MGS setup which is surprising because I don’t like anything!

Seriously, after the initial panic it will be OK.

I had to order a couple replacement irons today.... My builder, who I’ve worked with since the early 90’s, had an associate take the heads off my shafts for my re-shaft. Well, the person used too much heat and “wrinkled” the backs of three iron heads. They’re paying for them to be replaced, but what a costly mistake! Ugh.
