  2. Hi everyone, my name is Mike and i started playing the game 24 years ago at the age of 41. It's the most satisfying sport that I enjoy. Meeting new people has been the best part of the game for me. I am currently the area field superintendent for my company. We are in the finish end of home construction and I watch over the installations (flooring and quarts/granite countertops) and finalize the QC end of our work in the valley. My background for the last 40+ years has been Architectural Showcasing/Millwork. I am just coming back into the game after a 5 year layoff and am reall

  3. My Sub 70 gear arrived today. A day early. Can't wait to get out and hit these babies.

  4. Congratulations. I hit a new high today also... (although mine was 18 mph slower than yours.) Looking forward to continuing to improve. I'm trying to figure out what's a realistic goal. I'd be over the moon if I could reach 110 mph with my actual driver, while hitting a ball. Not sure how realistic that is.

  5. Started off slow today, and then hit an all new high. Measured speeds were 122, 127, 130, 130, 134.

  6. Thanks for that. When I made the tee time last year for just the 4 of us I had to make the payment at the time of making the tee time. I wasn't able to have the other members of our group call in for payment later. I have no issue putting the entire amount on my card, I just want to pay it off quickly. We should just plan, worse case scenario to all pay for the Sand Valley rounds a month or so ahead of scheduled rounds. Yep that sounds good, we will get it all handled. We can all hang out at the lake(It's questionable as you mentioned how much time we will actually have for that),

  8. Yes, he was a wise old 41 year old at the time. My dad told me wisdom comes hard until you're 50. When I was 18 my dad was a moron...when I became 40 I couldn’t believe how much he had learned.

  11. Our riots in Canada only happen when a Team loses the Stanley Cup finals, and that is only in Vancouver....which I can see from across the strait while I golf, but as you can see from my profile, I do not cheer for. 😀 On another not @Club Rat from one of your previous posts, I challenge you to come to Canada with an American Express card and finding anywhere that will take it! We're strictly Visa and MC up here....would be the equivalent of showing up with Traveler's Checks.....

  13. You guys are sitting way too comfortable up there. Just 1 off event from you guys is enough for me to take the lead. 😁

  14. LOL, it's a long season... Your well aware of your slight lead currently.... I won't go as far as saying "You STOLE the first segment" It might cause a crisis among PGA Tour FG Supporters and cause a RIOT !!!

  15. I seem to remember you insulting my headcover out at the Chautauqua Golf Club/Learning Center... Can I have a 1/2 million dollars? Or you could just donate it to a charity that serves the insulted headcover community. 😃

  16. I’m more on the side that his PR apology was the least he could do, but shit like that is going WAY too far.

  17. It doesn’t take a deep dive. It was top of his mind. I will swear a lot, and that word never comes to mind, despite me being old enough that we said shit like that back when we were 15. It never comes to mind.

  19. Pulled this from the report, and I think it's the most important chart in the whole report: Male amateurs have since a 16 yard increase from 1996 to 2019. But note how the increase is mostly at high handicap levels. This chart account for at least 80% of golf played. Maybe more. I really fail to see the problem here.

  20. The report is out. Not sure how to get the graph here, but on page 11 of the actual report, there is a graph showing the relationship between average driver distance and rules changes as well as a graph for average driver distance and major equipment changes. When MOI limits, mulit-layered balls, and spring effects came out, distance didn't really change until 2016. No equipment and rules changes happened then. I think golfers realized that hitting it as far as possible was advantageous. So distance jumped about 5yds 2016-2017, but has since not really changed. They start their conclus

  21. I agree. I wonder how the US Open and Open Championship will be affected. If they decide to adopt the local rule, would the top players opt out? If it turns out to be a simple 5% ball reduction, they could do the calculation like playing at elevation. I keep thinking about would they do this or that. At the end of the day, these rules still only effect 1% of players. Everybody else isn't going to have 2 sets of anything in case where they go has the "local rule" in effect. Maybe they'll ban drivers all together 😅🤢 keeps everything else the same...

  22. Ugh, I really hope the solution isn’t bifurcation via a local rule. Close to a 0% chance the PGA Tour adopts that rule, and then the whole thing is a waste of time. Why are we letting a “problem” that is only a problem for the top 1% of golfers be something that changes the game for everybody?

    • We apologize, This post was written with the intentions of responding to former post/comments regarding the Pure Ball Striker. More specifically, a post made and re-edited in 2018 written by Iacas. Though we responded 3 weeks ago our companies goal was to reach out to those players and provide more information regarding The Pure Ball Striker. With the hopes of starting a conversation point on the fundamental traits for the new direction of the Pure Ball Striker and to clear the error. We apologize if we offended anyone on this site related to this post. We by no means were trying to promote our product. Also we would be glad to respond to your PM's; this is our first time revisiting this site since our last post.  To clarify, this is not a promotional post it is an opportunity to have a discussion regarding our product. I am certain this is an honest misunderstanding and we plan to handle this situation with humility, graciousness, and transparency.  P.S. As I stated to Isacs in a PM, our company is going to be giving him a complementary Pure Ball Striker for his detailed review and commentary on our product. In the hopes that we can help all players efficiently with their golf swing, we would like to supply the first 30 people who PM us with a complementary Pure Ball Striker to show our gratitude. More details will be given in the PM .  Thank you     
    • I voted shorter, but my backswing vacillates between too long and too short. When I first started lessons, it was way too long, and my teacher shortened it to a spot where it felt like I wouldn't be able to hit more than a half shot (I was way wrong). Now my tendency is to shorten it too much. I've figured out a pretty good physical indicator of correct length backswing by a specific stretch in my hips and side that tell me when to stop (luckily, I am not the most flexible person, so it's easy to feel). My main problem now (with backswing length) is getting too excited to hit the ball, and stopping too soon.
    • Video of me doing the takeaway correctly and still photo of the setup I posted.
    • That kind of depends on where in Ohio you are going to be. Up in Cleveland not until at least March. Down in Columbus area there are a bunch of courses which stay open year round... mostly.  If you are any where near Columbus we could probably make it work.  
    • That you think it wouldn't be a train wreck as far as participation of the top guys contradicts my position. Those contradict each other. My opinion has very little to do with "like" or "dislike." Rather, it's about whether it's feasible/likely Neither are super likely, IMO.
