What has changed?
The length-lie dependency has been removed by changing color code bands to an “S-shape”.
Each color code has a fixed lie angle irrespective of club length. This removes the need for converting color codes when using non-standard-length clubs with the AFS system.
Color codes have moved to 1° increments to simplify lie-angle offerings.
Yellow and Purple color codes have been removed.
Updated length recommendations better align static recommendations with dynamic fitting results. Height columns are now scaled for easier use and overlaps are removed.
How is it more precise?
By analyzing over 20,000 fittings from our nFlight database, combined with years of research, we have made data-driven changes to better align static and dynamic fittings, particularly with respect to players’ length recommendations.
75% of players will fit to a dynamic color code within one of the new static recommendation compared to 70% previously, while 95% will fit within two color codes compared to 90% on the previous color code system.
How is it simpler?
Removing the length-lie dependency eliminates the need to convert color codes when building AFS heads at over/under standard length.
It also removes the need to convert back when ordering clubs at over/under standard length after a fitting using our AFS system.
Removing height overlaps and scaling eliminates ambiguity.
Plotting height and wrist-to-floor measurements for a static recommendation is more intuitive.
I get down to the Phoenix are 3 or 4 times a year and golf everytime. it all really depends on what time of year you go. If its summer, you can get on anywhere for a decent price. If it's winter you've got to look around to find something decent and affordable.
without regard to price, my favorites are:
Greyhawk (both courses equally)
Wi-ko-pa (both courses equally)
Troon North (monument)
Gold Canyon (Dinosaur). --to be fair though, the greens at Gold Canyon are not in the same shape as the others, but it is cheaper---
Ak-Chin Southern Dunes
I don't hate TPC, but I probably wouldn't play it again. too many better courses for similar price down there.
If I go in peak season, I like Longbow in Mesa, for an affordable course.
I agree with this. A "quiet end" of the driving range would be great for me. When I was in college I never could understand those people who could watch TV and do homework, or listen to music while they study.. I always needed to be in the quiet part of the library to get anything done.
You can get something in the middle, a little forgiveness, a little playability. Something like the Titleist AP3 or the Ping i-series, or even the Callaway Epic. You don't have to go straight blade to get some playability.
I voted one, but I am not really sure it's even a swing thought. My final thought is I want the ball to land in a chosen area, out there. Those landing areas get smaller the closer I get to the hole.
Once I pick a landing area, I just walk up, set up, swing, and hit the ball. This is pretty much the same scenario when I practice. I just swing the club with out thinking about it. I either hit a decent shot, or I don't. No big deal. Once it's done, unless it's really great shot, it's forgotten about, and I am on to the next shot.
