THanks.  I saw the video also and am using it for more that just pitches/chips around the green.  It is becoming my distance wedge for  shots inside of 100.  I seem to make better contact that with the 54. 

The GW has always been my go to club. 100 and in including chips and pitches.

Today was a good day.  First hole in one ever.  50° Cobra King wedge from 120 yards.  Hit just past the hole and spun back in. Shot 73 to tie my lowest round ever. Won my match 8 and 6

I got a hole in one on the first hole today. Makes for a really enjoyable round. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

I shot the worst round I've had in a while playing a full set of clubs. The reason I say that is I've played a couple of irons only rounds that went sideways, but I don't worry too much with scoring during those rounds.
The ugly:
56 (+20) 9 holes
1 fairway
1 green
23 putts
5 three putts
Today was the second go in the MyGolfSpy 2020 Hard Rock Challenge and I don't think it's going to bring home the gold. My driver was not my friend today, hitting pop ups, worm burners, and having me shout "fore left!". The putter was great from 20-40 feet, but once I got close the wheels came off. My wedge game was not sharp and I duffed way too many. 
The good:
I did have the best iron striking day of my life, they weren't always the most accurate but I only bladed two shots and had zero chunks. If I can have a day where the rest of my game is just normal with irons like that, I might be able to score in the mid 80's. I figured the driver out on the last couple of holes by weakening my grip to tame the left miss. That's the beauty of this game, I feel like I'm always learning, analyzing, and making the adjustments on the fly. 

Well the good news you don’t “chunk” anymore
Now just shake off the bad stuff and you’re a single digit golfer

I think my clubs were confused because I loaded them differently in my trunk and had the rain cover on. Once they figure out the ruse, they'll be back to their old tricks.

... Frustrating day on the golf course. Played 11 holes and my ZIP Navigator just stopped working. Electronics failed to respond to the remote or manual commands. I had to move the wheels to the free rolling position, which is still tough to roll, and push it back to the clubhouse. I was even par after only missing one fairway and hitting my driver as well as I have all season, even in the 20 mph winds. Thankfully I bought my ZIP last August so it should still be under warranty but I have no idea how long it will take to be fixed, where I have to take/ship it or if I have to pay for freight shipping, which ain't cheap. I am well aware of the many problems going on in this country right now and not having a remote golf cart working properly is faaaaaar down that list. But it still sucks.

My wife makes our tee times... I just want to know when we have to be at the club.  Yesterday, she said we were playing with another couple at 9:15.  We show up at 7:45 so I can stretch and warm up.  She gets the cart and returns to the car so we can load up our bags.  Our tee time was 7:34 and the couple we were to play with was on the #1 green, headed to #2 tee.  We drove out to #2 and met them in the middle of the fairway, where we dropped a ball.  Made a "bogey" from there, then got a triple on the next hole.  Didn't start hitting the ball well until #5 although I scrambled for par on #4.  Ended up +6 on the front, then preceded to make 2 doubles and a bogey on the back nine for an 83.  I guess I can't just show up and play like I did when I was younger...not old!

Man I hate to hear that! Bought mine about 2 months ago and love it. Hopefully you will receive good customer service and things will work out quickly. Good Luck.....

Nahh, I do it all the time and I'm no spring chicken. No warm up. Get to the first tee and swing away. I'm usually the first one off on Sunday morning. If I see someone else in the parking lot, I high tail it to the tee box. I play 18 in 2 hours and 10 minutes. Hate getting behind someone, even if they are by themselves. Obviously I play quick.

Quick??  What's that?  Wait until you're 73. Nothing is quick in your 70's... don't want to be a statistic!!  🤣
