  1. The team at Miles is great. Go in with an open mind and let them show you the data. I got new irons, fit to the same wedges, got a new driver but kept my fairway wood. The putter recommendation was to keep the same putter. I've worked with Kenny, Nate and Dominic and they are great.

  2. You should be able to easily tell the difference between a 5-iron and a sand wedge just by looking at them. Especially at address...

  3. Can't wait for the driver ads in the future claiming to hit it 20 yards shorter.

  4. My lessons are usually just 30 mins long. I find it more productive to work on just 1 problem/get 1 tip instead of trying to fix multiple things in one shot. I take my lessons at Golftec, so we got video of everything. My instructor would ask me what club I want to work on that particular day and ask me to hit a few balls without telling him what my problem is. His job is to analyze my swing and note issues on his own. I believe that if he is a good instructor, he should be able to spot issues without me telling him anything. So far, it’s been working out great for us. As for your not getting

  6. We need a sarcasm emoji! I agree with you. If they want to make the game more difficult for the pros, make the rough thicker and the greens more firm. Leave the other 99% alone.

  7. Absolutely I went in expecting Taylormade driver and woods, Not sure of the hybrid, Mizuno Irons (Player distance, MP or JPX) and Vokey Wedges all Stiff or Tour Stiff. I have a Titleist Driver (Stiff 6.0), Callaway 3 wood (Stiff; the cheap one I got out of the used club bin), Ping Hybrid (Extra Stiff), Srixon (Game Improvement) Irons 5.5 Hard stepped and Vokey Wedges. SO I was right on the Putter and Wedges. Everything else was WAY off. Numbers don't lie and the pros know their stuff.

  10. I think this is part of your problem. You have your own idea about how to fix your swing so you’re either looking for an instructor to validate it or address what you want directly. I can’t say if the instructors you saw are good or not, but it seems to me that what you have targeted as the priority in your swing is not the same thing @iacas pointed out in your swing thread. Obviously it’s your time and your money, so if you do want to address anything with your instructor, you should communicate it. He might have a reason for having you work on something else first. But I think you’re go

  11. I personally like Cobra woods/metals, you may want to look and try them. I use there 3W, 5W, 7W and driver. My irons are Clevelands

  12. When using grip tape it is necessary to use solvent. Mineral spirits work fine. There are also products made specifically for the task. Plug the hole, in the butt end of the grip, with a tee. Pour, or squirt, some solvent into the grip. Put your thumb over it and give it a few shakes...then pour the solvent, from the grip, on the taped butt end of the club. Rub it all over, pull the tee, and slide the grip on. Align it and wipe off any excess solvent. P.S. Make sure to remove the backing from the grip tape before applying the solvent.

  14. I don’t say anything either way. Too many sensitive people out there you never know when you will run into one. Unless it was truly a great shot and I muttered it out loud. Someone I got paired up with at a muni course called me a b**tch 15 times during our round - once after every good drive so I guess that was a compliment...I prefer a simple “nice shot”...

  15. The problem I ran into 2 years ago was this: I live in New England so there is no winter golf for me. I swung the speed sticks like a friggin madman to create speed. I could have hit balls inside but I didn’t. I ended up with too much of this “off balance swing out of my ass” swing as my golf swing. Took me 3 months to find the center of the club face again and start scoring well again. Last year I swung them as fast as I could while staying in balance and swinging like my normal swing. Just a bigger load, more turn and let the weight of the sticks generate my speed. I also hit bal

  16. BTW, if you use the coupon code "iacas" you'll save 10%. I haven't read enough or used it to know, but I trust the SuperSpeed people to know what they're talking about, generally speaking. I also wonder if they almost have to come up with something new, because at some point, they'll semi-saturate their market. Anyway, I've ordered two.

  19. Just an updated swing and showing the step drill I've been doing. Experimenting with a different trigger move but same feels on the takeaway, shift the centers early, and throw the arms/club upward. Doesn't come close but almost feels like I get my belt buckle to the inside of the right foot before I sling it back. Really like the ascent of the hand path and that my head doesn't lower until after 3. Good "shaft lean" and less saggy knees! Hips probably still too slidy.

  20. It doesn't bother me. Unless it's my mother, who will tell me "nice shot" on literally every shot I hit. Just because it goes in the air, mother, doesn't mean it was a good shot. But that's a different topic...

  22. @cooke119, your description of the symptoms (and lack of pain swinging the club, etc.) sound a lot like my issue: an impingement of the shoulder (mine is right-side as well). Not so much an injury as a condition that develops over time. Mine doesn't affect my golf so much (unless there's a little subconscious restriction in my back swing), but does give me problems elsewhere. Anyway, there are physical therapy exercises that can potentially resolve the issue without surgery (few end up needing that). Not trying to make an internet diagnosis, here...just sounds very similar, and that

    • What do you like about it? Do you walk and carry often?
    • I mean… The right leg is almost locked out straight before you get to A2, and… the club shaft almost hits you in the neck. I'd shift course and look at those two things.
    • I think you can play around with the positioning and angle of the SSR. With the 7-iron often it will hit higher up on the shaft and measure the speed of that, while with the driver sometimes it can measure the toe instead of the COM like the Trackman will measure. (But that shouldn't be 10 MPH faster. A few.)
    • So I had some time at our indoor facility and Trackman.  I put the Swingspeed radar down to compare it next to Trackman to see what the difference in numbers were.  Had some interesting (and strange) results. First I hit some 7 irons to warm up.  On trackman I averaged about 85 MPH but the Swingspeed was registering around 78/79...so it was consistently lower. When I hit driver I was averaging around 102ish on Trackman but the Swingspeed radar was consistently around 110 or even higher.  I hit 105 on Trackman but topped out at 115 on Swingspeed.  I'd say that Swingspeed was averaging a little under 10 MPH higher with the driver but it was 6 MPH lower with the 7 iron. Has anyone else seen results like this?  I was left slightly confused.  When I've done fittings in the past and been on Trackman I was normally in the 100ish range so my swingspeed is definitely up a little bit but not as much as I thought it would be.
