I need to get in and di a gapping session with both to compare. For reference my current 60 is my 100 yard shot. It won’t go further so I just take a nice smooth swing and if the number is 100 I’ll be between 90-97. 

That's about where I'm at these days as well, so anything you have would be very useful for me as well.  I'm supposed to be working at a simulator business this winter so I have LOTS of time for that kind of thing... wish I had the clubs to test though!

I’m not having a particularly stellar round at the moment, but man is Prospector Golf Course beautiful!

This is the view from the 10th tee. Made par here after a 269-yard 3 wood off the tee - we’ll see if I can keep it going after a rough front 9 and see how many more holes I can get in before I run out of sunlight. 

I've been wanting to go to Suncadia for a long time now.  Just beautiful!

Ran into a herd of elk a few holes later. 

I was a little nervous - there was a bull elk just off screen in the trees bugling every few minutes, and a few of the closer elk were snorting at me like they didn't want me there. Made it a bit tough to be totally focused on the shot, so I blocked the 8-iron a little bit right.

 

... Well so far, I nominate this as the very best lame excuse for 2021!!! 🤪

That one was eyeballing you for a bit.  Not sure I would have been able to concentrate on the shot either....Well Done

I edited it out of the video, but I actually stepped back off the tee the first time I went to place the ball because it was huffing and snorting at me.

... Reminds me of UNC basketball when Dean Smith made the team sprint a lap if anyone missed a free throw at practice. Buzz Peterson missed and they sprinted, and getting back to the FT line Buzz threw up. He then bounced the ball in the vommit 2 times just like his normal routine and sank the free throw. Dean Smith said "THAT is the concentration I am looking for".  😉

I haven't played much golf north of Texas, but I remember playing up west of Calgary and seeing warning signs for bears. Being a Baylor guy, I thought it was cool but didn't really heed the warning. I started the round -3 thru 6 and then ran into a couple of black bears on the 7th tee. It wasn't the fun, cuddly experience that I'm used to seeing at my local zoo. They were pretty aggressive and we had to retreat for a bit. Needless to say, I proceeded to play the remaining 12 holes +12. I think I'll stick with snakes, rabbits, deer and nutria here in the piney woods of SE Texas. 

Y'all are nuts hitting golf balls next to wildlife of that size. Or maybe your balls are just bigger.

Sorry if this is a stupid question... but have you guys started any of the competition yet?  Is there a whole 'notha thread I'm supposed to be following?  I only ask because at my course, we are all thankful for a bit more nice weather then sometime between now and the end of October, it's gonna get really wet and cold.

Not a stupid question. 

We're still waiting on equipment to arrive. A set of irons, some fairway woods...

This is the correct thread. And yes, those in the northern half of the US are running out of daylight and warm temps.

That's kind of what I thought, but I started to wonder since it's September.  Looking forward to when you guys do begin!!!

All I know is that at this point, I will really be putting the rails on the woods and hybrids to the test hitting out of some muddy lies!

As evidence, here's the forecast:

The one bright side is that it will make it a lot easier to get tee times.

We were 65* today and will be tomorrow (playing both days).  However, starting Wednesday, our forecast looks like that as well.

you'll be pleasantly surprised.  Those rails are an absolute game changer for me as someone who can be a little steep at times.  They have worked out well for me in soft conditions.

Hey @gavinski91, I'm over on the east side of the state. So if you need to make a golf trip to an area that is sunny and dry to better test those clubs you are welcome over here.

Tell the wife that 4 or 5 rounds on different grass types is really needed for testing. Sea level VS 2000' might be worth looking at, even the effects of humidity on the finish would be worth a set of pictures I'm sure 😅
