He wronged me. Told me I’m not good at golf. Tried to show me “data” as “proof” of these claims.

Be nice to TM, you never know when the Singularity might occur! 😀

Thanks. And thank you for taking the time to work with me. The really hard work is the road ahead... You, too, John. I definitely needed five full days on the swing changes, but I also got

Finally got out to try my clubs on TM. Going to repost pictures from my TM session with my old clubs for easy comparison. PW: MP4 JPX910F 6i: MP4 JPX910

I've been playing pretty well these last 5 rounds so I wanted to do a little assessment and compare with my end-of-season stats from last year. Right away, my driving and approach games are

I saw a slight increase to ball speed and dispersion through the set. More importantly I also launched the ball higher with more spin, which is what I was looking to see from my fitting. It’s kind of an odd coincidence that the 6i averages are so similar, but the shots from the JPX910F are more playable on course, based on the pictures.

I split these into two sections. The first I was really focused on starting the ball right of my target line to mixed results.

The second I just hit the ball like I normally would. 1B6B19D0-995F-4948-BDD6-D0D6F324944E.jpeg

I’m pretty happy with that. It’s definitely more consistent. I never felt that I was going to lose the ball right once. I don’t know if that’s the club or just how I was swinging today, but if I can lose that right miss I’m dropping three strokes, easy.

Now if I can harness those three shots from the controlled swing that I basically put right on the target line...

Looking forward to golf this year 😃

Your 6 iron carry is almost my 4W carry .🙁

If you’d like, I can hit your 4w for you. That might make it carry farther 😜

That is a certainty!

You’ve seen me hit woods. It is most definitely not a certainty. There’s a very high possibility I don’t hit the ball more than 10’ off the ground.

Does your 6I go 190 outside?

When I hit it straight which is almost never. There's a bit of mat effect going on as I tend to hit everything slightly fat from 6i up.

I play it as my 180 club.

12.6° is a lot lower than I should be launching the 6i, too, so there's that.

Been thinking about this. The new Ping adapter has a flat setting. I wonder if that will help me start the ball a little more to the right. Right now I have it set to +1.5° and neutral lie, but I can set it to +1.0° with a flat lie.

Really nicely done man! Wish I could come close to hitting my 6i and driver like that! Thanks for the side by side or top to bottom comparison. I have a TM session in two weeks and these numbers help me understand a little better launch angle, AOA, SS, ball speed, spin rate and the subsequent result. 

The numbers on your driver comparisons are pretty cool to see. Not knowing the math, it's hard for me to imagine 800ish RPM difference and 5ish MPH of SS produces 21 more yards of total distance.

Thanks. Trackman has all the explanations for the metrics on their website if you wanted to learn more about them.

I don’t like total distance. It’s calculated based on simulated conditions. I use carry distance.

The new driver launches higher, too, which is part of the equation. It’s not just spin alone. With my dialed back swing, I averaged 3 mph less ball speed than my old driver and it carried less than a yard shorter. My AoA went up significantly. My old shaft just wasn’t right for me at all. Kick point is different, but that gets into real technical stuff about equipment I’m not too knowledgeable on and frankly most people don’t need to know that stuff. That’s why you go to a good fitter 😃

Thanks for that, I'll check out their site today.

Practicing today. Filmed my actual practice at a different angle, thought it looked cool so here it is:

Here are the swings:

 

Still working on the same stuff. Right elbow higher in the backswing, transition by laying down the club while sitting into left side. Getting easier to do, but nowhere near automatic.

Practiced today. Not sure what I did differently but today the club exited lower than last week.

 

Wear pattern starting to form on my 6i:

How can you tell the lower exit? Feel or vid?

Come on V, did you really need to ask me this? Feel ain’t real, man.

    • If it was a hockey fight BD would turtle in seconds.
    • How are you supposed to classify worst ever? How many times have I yanked out of the swing, left the face open, and hit a wild push-slice OB or lost? What makes one worse than the other? 🤣
    • +1. The mRNA vaccines at least have been shown nearly as effective against Delta as original. So, highly effective. Our problem is anti-vaxxers (both classic and Trumpist) and the public policy legacy of Reagan where a huge proportion of people will miss bills and whatnot if they can't work because of side effects, so haven't gotten it even though they want to. If we got to 80-90% immunized with current vaccine the pandemic would almost totally end in the US, at least until a vaccine escaping variant pops up somewhere.
    • You just posted what looks to be relatively current information.  It seems somewhere between possible and likely that boosters will be advisable, but details are lacking as variants keep occurring and data is continually being collected.  Stay tuned.  What seems more important is that more and more people get vaccinated to slow the spread and decrease the likelihood of additional variants.  
    • I had a worst shot yesterday. Our 2some invited the 3some behind us to join us to play #9, the last hole of our round. It was a 152 yd par 3,fairly straight forward. Wanting to make a good showing to the 3some, I hit first. I was having a decent round, but I topped the ball 50 yds then slinked back to my cart. I did get a bogie, and strangely enough, nobody bettered the 4.
