I've been gaming the Mizy MP59's for the last two years, and have been eyeing the MP69's for quite some time.  But today, Mizuno gave a sneak peak of their new MP4 Muscle Backs on their blog/forum.  They are gorgeous!

David, I haven't seen any specs on them... But I believe they are indeed a size similar to the 59.... Which makes them better for hacks like me!

If anyone has the details, please share...

I always like me some clean looking blades. Can't really tell but it looks like they thinned down the topline a little, which is to my preference.

Negative boner points for using the term "gaming"...

Sorry, I'm not 'digging ditches' with the shovels you play with!

Fair enough.  I'll keep on digging ditches with Lee Westwood, and you keep on "gamin" with Luke Donald!

By the way, I'm going to be digging some ditches on the beach tomorrow afternoon ... what will you be doing???

So you're not buying the idea that he magically went up 15 strokes in handicap in the last 6 months? ;)  Smart bet.

There are very few scenarios where the word boner isn't funny...

Members caught lying about their handicap index will be viewed as dishonest scoundrels and will be dealt with in an appropriate manner.

Appropriate, as Bukaki Island only accepts guest that fall inline with this label.

    • I read the thread title incorrectly. ”Why would I want to start annoying my golf partners?” Gerund vs. present participle or something. I must be having a bad day, ‘cause I clicked anyway. 
    • Been golfing so bad lately I almost did not check but this week was able to mark off #5 & #7 with Pars (Doing Par Challenge)
    • Yeah, I use the Watch all the time for shot detection and shot location. I’m not sure why they put out the notification now—it’s been out for a couple months IIRC.  I’m using AW series 5, and it works fine even though they say it’s optimized for series 6 and SE.  From the FB user Arccos group, it sounds like the folks who have most problems are using series 3 or maybe 4.  Some folks are saying the battery doesn’t last. The app tells me it will last 5 hours, and I finish a round with about 35% left. Couple of things to consider here: 1. Battery health of the watch. Mine is at 93%, so as it drops lower, I expect it won’t last as long. 2. What other things are you having the Watch do? I turned off the Arccos to Health setting, because that will use more battery. If it’s doing other things as well, that will also use up the battery more quickly. 3. I put my iPhone in Low Power Mode when arriving at the course.  Among other things, this turns off background updates; I think this might also apply to the Watch function. 4. Some folks have said to put it in Airplane mode or theater mode. I haven’t tried that, but haven’t needed to. One improvement in the Watch app is that it now lets you record hole location on the green. Usually pretty close, but I almost always check my first putt and the hole locations on my iPhone as I head to the next tee. 
    • Day 34 (30 Jul 21) - Played 18 today.  Worked on clubbing up on the approaches with a 3/4 swing.  It has helped with getting the ball onto / near the green.  Had some great shots into the greens and even when not on the green, being confident to bump and run with an 8i or pitch with the 54wedge.    
    • Back to the "regular" course today - rough greens and all.  Shot 94 (45 /49).   Played the back nine first with the first three holes (all par 4's) being double bogies.   I knew this was going to be an interesting day for sure.  Good thing - no triples today.  Too many doubles though with a total of six and only one par.  These greens are tough to play as they are either real sparse on good grass or the grass is like putting on cut pile (you have to really stroke through the ball to get the roll).  It calls for one to pin hunt to keep the putter distances as short as possible.
