  1. DJ is looking like hes going to have a sweet FedEx cup trophy next to his us open and player of the year trophies. Oh and 10 mil not to shabby.
  2. Thanks bud. Hopefully next summer we can get out. I appreciate all of your help. I didnt even think of that. Thanks thats a life long goal accomplished. Now I need to set a new goal.
  3. Thanks. It was just one of those days where the golf gods were shinning on me I guess. I made one long putt for birdie and was able to get up and down when I needed to.
  4. Haven't been on ina while. My wife and I are in the middle of purchasing a house and it hasn't gone as smooth as we hoped. Since my last post I've changed from a Ping i25 to a TaylorMade M1 driver. Ive played 3 rounds with it so far and I'm very happy. I'm also happy to report I broke 80 for the 1st time Saturday. I shot 36/43 which was amazing. I missed a 12 ft putt on #9 to shoot 1 under on the front. Then proceeded to go bogey, triple, bogey. I did finish with 3 straight pars getting up and down on 17 & 18 to finish with 79. I want to thank @iacas @cipher and @mvmac for all your help. Without you guys and my evolvr instructor this wouldn't have been possible. Thanks again.
  5. Work was just to busy this week to get to the range. I played 18 this morning and Im still hitting pull draws with the driver. I noticed that they all seem to be out of the toe. I ended up putting the driver in time out and hit 4 wood off the tee for most of the back 9. I only hit one pull draw with the 4 wood the rest were straight or a small straight draw. I literally have no confidence in the driver at this point. If the weather cooperates I should be able to get to the range Tuesday or Wednesday. I bought some foot spray to see if its mostly miss hits or a swing flaw.
  6. I'm looking for some advice on how to go about finding a fitter for a driver? I would like somewhere that has a launch monitor as well as an outside range. I guess I'm wondering if it is better to go to a fitter who only specializes in one manufacturer products. In theory they have a lot of knowledge on those clubs. Or should I go somewhere that has more clubs to try maybe having more options but not as much knowledge on each particular club? Ive only been fit for my edel putter at this point. Any advice or previous experience would be appreciated.
  7. The wife and I went and saw Suicide Squad today. Overall I like it even though the story was a little disjointed. Will Smith was good as Deadshot but Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn stole the show. She's the perfect amount of crazy and beautiful. I thought Jared Leto was a decent Joker even though he wasn't a huge part of the movie. It will be interesting to see how (or if) DC has Justice League and Suicide Squad in a movie together.
  8. Played 18 yesterday morning and continued to struggle with the driver. I looked back on my last few swing videos and i noticed that my shoulder turn was getting sloppy. I also noticed my key 2 isn't great. I did hit a few good ones early on in my round. I feel like I have a tendency to over swing and my sequencing gets off. I will hopefully get a video up this week.
  9. Capitol and lakefront are both Wisconsin brewery's. They are pretty big though so you might see them.
  10. I like that as well. If you can find Capital IPA or any Lakefront Brewery IPA you will be happy The Lake Front Fixed Gear is my favorite but I like the other 3 or 4 they make as well. Oh also if you enjoy bourbon beers Founders makes Backwoods Bastard in limited production (November only if I'm remembering correctly). Its one of my favorite beers.
  11. Im a big fan of Founders products. Im sure you would also enjoy Sierra Nevada Hop Hunter as well as Lagunitas Lucky 13 if you can find it.
  12. Whats the best way to practice on the course? Lets say I go play alone so I can't enter my score. What should I do to get the most out of my practice round?
  13. Mizuno makes such a good looking iron set. I would love to give these a try. They seem like they are a good mix of forgiveness and traditional looks.
  14. I recently put the 4i back in the bag. I was usings 4h and 3h but never seemed to need the 3h. I hit my 4h 10-15 yards longer than my 4i. I like having the 4i for punch shots or keeping it low in the wind. My setup is Driver, 4w, 4h, 4i-gw, 54 & 58 wedges, and edel.
  15. That was awesome seeing Lilly King win gold in the 100 Breaststroke after her comments on the Russian swimmer (Yulia Efimova) testing positive for a banned substance twice and still being able to compete in the olympics.
