  1. I pulled the 3w and replaced it with a 4w this season. Significantly easier to hit and more reliable as well. I am also not giving up any distance with it, I can't see myself going back anytime soon.
  2. I was in a similar situation this year and opted for the shorter "par 3" course. I am still fearful that my long game will suffer due to not hitting a driver as often but i think that my iron play and striking will significantly improve. There are 3 or 4 holes I can still hit driver or 3 wood off the tee, which I also planned on using long irons to help out on par 5's when I play longer courses. The way I looked at it is the yardage in will be my second shots on longer courses so if I can dial those shots in more I have the opportunity to shoot lower scores. Also the greens are in better shape at the shorter course so I can also work on short game/ putting there.
  3. +1 to JonMA1, I also have been using the Grint to track all of my scores for the past couple of years. Assigned me to a club and tracks some of my round info all for free. They also have a paid version that gives you more round statistics.
  4. I just recently cut an inch off my driver for this coming season, down to 44.5. I noticed that I wasn't consistent with the driver and playing in recovery mode isn't fun for the round. I have been to the range and a few times out on the course a few with it, unusual weather for Cincy this winter so I am taking advantage of it, and noticed so far that my strikes are more solid and my dispersion is tighter. I also haven't lost any distance with the shorter shaft. Definitely worth trying if your unhappy with current driver results.
  5. I only have a few of goals for the coming year, similar but not the same to the ones I had last year. I did make some good strides this year which will put me into a good spot to pick things back up again in 2017. 1. Continue with instructor as needed and keep working on what has worked so far this year. Keep swings thoughts easy and to a minimum. 2. Play more often next year. I am treating myself to a season pass at my local course so this is very attainable 3. Practice with a purpose. Quit just hitting balls for the sake of hitting balls. Have an intent and stick to it when practicing and put pressure on myself so that it doesn't feel different out on the course 4. Most important - stop beating myself up over a bad shot. Relax and have fun... If I can stick to these I know I will see significant improvements again this time next year.
  6. I also play some Mizzy's but mine are older as well. I am currently playing some MP-14's and they are sweet. I haven't seen them yet but for a newer offering I hear nothing but good things about the 900 tour/ forged series. Might want to check them out before you pull the trigger, they look gorgeous in all the pics and reviews I have seen.
  7. I currently game some MP-14's and absolutely love the feel of these sticks. While I am outside of the handicap realm to even consider putting these in the bag, I came across a deal I couldn't pass up. And I always wanted a set of Mizzy's anyway so that was that. I was a 20 handicap when I put these in play at the beginning of this season, now I am down to a 15. I have played more and spent more time working on my swing, which is the reason for the drop. If anything now that this season is winding down I am asking myself if I could have progressed more if I stuck with a cavity set of sticks, who knows. What I can take away from this season is that I got better and I enjoy my rounds more and more each time I play. Also nothing beats puring one with a blade.
  8. "I am Staying Ahead of the Game with Sun Mountain!" Jason Day +2 Zach Johnson +3 Justin Rose +2
  9. PING is going to help me be fast and forgiving with the new G Driver and Crossover! Adam Scott -11 Henrik Stenson -10 Kevin Kisner -10
