How'd you play?

Well now, I may just have to keep the new sticks in the box until the current mojo on the G410's wanes. Do you think it possible clubs get a "sense" of change in the wind? 🙂

39/42 at Desert Hills today. B2B rounds with some solid ball striking and some long (for me) drives.  Just on the apron on the 505 yard par 5 #6 in two and putted for the Big Bird - rolled right up to the cup and stopped short a couple of inches. I have added a new pre-shot routine, between my ears, reminding myself of tempo (so important for me).  I played with a young guy (late 20's I'm guessing), from Kentucky, who is with the National Guard and here on a one year assignment assisting Border Patrol.  He hit it a ton... nearly drove the 310 yard #13 with a 3w 😲.  Great company and fun round.

Good round!

Can you send some of that thin air my way? My drives could use a boost.

Wow, would you look at that. Green grass!  What a lovely thought.  We still have a couple of months before we’ll have that.

Thanks, no worries about jumping in. That's what we're all about.

Its not as heavy as I thought it would be with the battery. I guy at my club had an older competitor model and it took two people to get it out of the trunk. It used a car type battery. Technology, got to love it. Still pretty pricey at roughly $1500 though. I would also need the down hill automatic braking feature. I think i could pick up a good used club car for a few hundred more. 

I remember those!  about 20 years ago, I bought a Kangaroo.  Was able to store it at the club, so no worries.  When I moved here, they said no room to store it for me, so I had to schlep it back and forth in the car.  That didn't last long and I sold it!  Weighed a ton with that big 6V battery.

Played 3rd 9 of 2021 and mirrored a lot of my rounds so far. Couldn't hit the driver on a few holes and had to scramble. Had a 3 putt while mulling over a swing change and not devoting attention to the 4 foot comeback. Parred the next hole. Then took an ugly ugly ESC 8 by nearly hitting an iron lay up in the water, chipping it out, thinning a short iron into a bunker and taking 2 to get out of the sand.

Of course that was the 9th hole and was on pace to end with a 45 with a par... instead ended with a 48. Bah.

Played at The National at Ave Maria yesterday and shot a lackluster 96. 77% of fairways on the front and 11% on the back...dunno what happened.

Shot Scope doesn't have the course mapped because it's brand new, so I tracked it for them and they'll use my raw data to start mapping it. Looking at Google, there's nothing on the satellite view.

I'm writing a small review and posting a lot of pics that I took in the Courses section. I'll add a link to it here when I'm done.

Here's my review: https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/43932-the-national-at-ave-mariaimmokalee-fl/

Two questions

What course did you play?

How much does the  MGI Zip Navigator weigh and is it easy getting out of the trunk of a car.

This was at an Executive 9 hole in Port Washington, NY - Harbor Links. Short but presents plenty of obstacles and challenges off the tee (in addition to the homicidal greens 😂). One advantage that day was the wind was very light!

Sorry to jump in, but listed below is the folded dimensions and weight.

- FOLDED DIMENSIONS (INVERTED REAR WHEELS): 27.55' x 18.5' x 16.5' INCHES

- WEIGHT (NO BATTERY): 28.6lbs

- WEIGHT (WITH BATTERY): 34.96lbs

Good info! Yeah it's heavy but not overly so. Very easy to detach the battery and carry it separately, eg. back into the garage for recharging. Also, depending on your vehicle, the rear wheels can be popped off and turned around (for the "Inverted" dimensions above).

Yes, pricey but should last many seasons with very little maintenance!

Played yesterday for my birthday, had punched greens, rain on and off and one bout of hail. But shot a solid 82 with two penalty strokes for just blasting a couple drives OB. Could have been mid to high 70’s with smooths greens. It was a great day! [emoji4]

Had penalty off the tee on 13 and 15, then missed a short putt on 16 that would have been a sand save. Guess I’ll just have to play again!

Played 18 on Sunday. Great day for golf. Played 9 on Saturday which showed as the front 9 went wonderful. My driver on the back 9 got a little loose, possibly fatigue related. Started to have my hips open early allowing the club head to get in front of my hands for some large pulls. Unfortunately houses come in to play on the back 9, excuses or not a birthday song started in my backswing and I hit a house. Luckily for me all I heard was vinyl siding vs a window. The irons and wedges both showed up to play. Getting out the next 2 days in Hilton head. Tee it high and let it fly boys!!

Played Sunday in on DFW Tournament. Solid round on all around,  2 mistakes turn into doubles, got greedy instead of playing fairways and greens. Chipping and Putting continue to be the solid foundation of my game so far this year. Need to keep that going everything else will come into place. Some confidence booster.

I was trying to figure out where you played and couldn't remember any courses on LI that had greens as you described. But I was thinking about 18 hole courses. Port Washington makes sense now that you specified.  Don't they have two courses and 18 and a 9. Never played the executive course. I lived on LI for 35 years, 24 in Elmont and 11 in Babylon. I played golf just about everywhere. I played another one right near that one. Sands Point. There are a few out in the Montauk area I never got to play though.

Played 9 Monday & Tuesday mornings. I’ve switched to the G710 irons and probably not going away from them for a while. They’ve been good and can’t blame them when I get out of Tempo.
Odd outing Monday we had a guy cancel and so a walk up took his spot. Probably late 50’s old beat up clubs, Crocs with no socks and looked almost homeless. First woods out his mouth was that he is a Golf Pro and dropped a ton of names (any of us can do that). He did hit the ball a long way and seemed to be a really good player. He also said he was preparing to play Senior Open this year.
What also seemed strange besides the beat up mismatched clubs were the lack of Logos or clothing with equipment names.
Wish him luck on his journey.
BTW he was kinda lobbying to join up with our group again[emoji33]

Couldn’t have had a worse day but I took it in stride. Showed up to the course and they didn’t have my tee time. Turns out they butchered the name so bad I couldn’t recognize anything even close when looking at the sheet. The pro shop was helpful but accused us of a few times of booking the wrong course. They finally agreed to let us start in the back 9. First hole was good piped a drive. The next 5 holes were a different tale. I developed the yips on the tee box. Topping and shanking everything. Tempted to let the alligator eat my drive after the 5th time on 18 things started to shift in my favor going towards the front 9 I was hammering my driver. Irons were good and wedges were decent for the short game. Even made a few good putts. Definitely a tale of two different 9s with the back being close to 55 and the front a mere 44. All the frustration from the pro shop caught up to me and I was scatter brained. Even left my 4 iron with my rangefinder in a tee box I had to go back from. Group behind us would have just left it there. Lessor learned for tomorrow. R E L AX. Playing country club of Hilton head. Looking to throw up a good competent round

Played a super short local course as a two ball practice round. Super super windy, but managed to go even par! Really solid ball striking day, and man is it nice to be outside golfing again! If my wife and I didn't have a date night planned, I would have definitely made the turn!

Shot a 41/41 today, double on both sides, mainly short game woes.  With the exception of the drive on #18 which got away from me, I thought I was striking the ball much better today.  Greens were hard and fast today.
