  1. I had played blades for a long time. I went in for a fitting with no expectations on what irons I would end up buying. I ended up in the Ping i500 irons and although they are a "game improvement" iron, they look like a blade at address, have great distance, spin numbers are good and I can still work the ball left/right and high/low. I would look into these irons if you are looking to make a switch, I did this year and I don't plan to look back.
  2. This might be something I need to purchase. I have been kicking the idea back and forth, but I think its time to just do it. This will make windy days at the range up here in North Dakota much more worthwhile since I can get a "true" distance from the Mevo, even if the shot is into the wind. I'm really surprised at how accurate the reviews are saying this little guy is for how cheap it is.
  3. I saw this over the weekend. This is good stuff here. They must have this available for the PGA Tour as well, no? Would be interesting to see that one too, and see the names that coincide on the two lists.
  4. It sure does seem like it now. @Diece I would be willing to bet 2 months pay from my online/network marketing business that you won’t make 10k/mo after just a couple months. It’s much much harder than that. I’m talking from personal experience and I am selling a product in one of the fastest growing markets there is in health and wellness/energy and weight loss. I’m just trying to be realistic with you. Are there people that make 10k per month quickly? Yes, but I guarantee they busted their ass for quite some time before they started making that. One of my good friends is my sponsor in my company and she is making 10k+/mo, but she busted her ass for a year for that to happen.
  5. Just a quick word on the online business, or online marketing or Multi-level Marketing. If you have some people you know that are doing well as you have mentioned, then sit down with them, take in every single thing you can from them and use it. Find out what they did, how long it took and how much time it took because I bet you will be surprised at how long it actually took them. You will want to lock arms with some of the leaders of that particular company (or whichever company you choose) and be a sponge when they tell you what to do and how to do it, basically be coachable and let them mold you into a mini them. It would be very tough to start this business this spring and have enough sustainable income through the summer to get you through. Most people take 2-5 years to build a sustainable income in a business like this. I know from experience as I am part of an energy and weight loss company. I am making good supplemental income, but would not be able to live on that income alone, and those that are making 10k/mo busted their asses and put a ton of time and energy into their businesses for the financial freedom they have now. Just a heads up from experience.
  6. So even if the ball is embedded a bit, rule 17-4 applies first?
  7. Let me rephrase it, as I know it’s not holed by the picture, poor wording on my part. If the pin gets pulled and the ball falls in the cup, is it considered holed with the last shot? The ball left an indentation in the side of the cup. I’m just not sure if one should proceed under 17/4 or 16/3 for embedded ball since it did leave an indentation.
  8. Rules experts...Is this ball holed? Does rule 17/4 or 16/3 come into play here?
  9. I found a "used" set of the '18 Callaway Apex MB combo set. 7-PW Apex MB and the 4-6 is the X-Forged. I love this set. I had a set of the Mizuno JPX-850 Forged that I traded in for them because I wanted to go back to more of a blade iron. They are less forgiving, but it seems like I still get the distance out of poor struck shots. That feeling when you hit one pure with these is unlike anything else though. I lost maybe 10 yards or so from the Mizunos, but the loft of the 7 iron on the Callaway is 32* vs 34* in the Mizuno. Give them a try, you might like them and especially more of a combo set.
  10. I have heard quite a few good things about the Ping i500 iron. Many people like them, but remember...most of these non-blade irons are strong lofts with high launch. Sure its fun to hit a 7 iron 190 yards, but most of the time that leads to big gaps toward the bottom of the bag. You say you don't want MB's "something a single digit handicapper would play" but I see on your profile you are a 6 handicap. You could easily play MB's, but they are "normal" lofts so they wont go as far as these stronger lofted clubs that have come out recently.
  11. I see Koepka putting with his finger down the shaft this week. Is this something new, or has he been doing this for some time now?
  12. I love the Taylormade Milled Grind wedges. I swapped out my 60* and 52* with the Milled Grind (coming from Nike's) and have not missed a beat with them. Highly recommend giving them a look.
  13. You are a 6 handicap...how are you not good enough to play a blade?? If its preference, I get it, but don't sell yourself short by saying you aren't good enough to play a blade. I started playing blades about 8-9 years ago when I was about a 10-12 handicap. Bought a set of Nike TW Blades. Rode them down to about a 4 handicap. Next set was the Nike VR Pro blades and rode them down to a 1 handicap. Just recently upgraded to the Callaway Apex MB irons...hoping to ride them into the plus handicaps. I would go to a golf shop and hit some blades, you might be surprised at how well you hit them. It has made me put some work into making center face contact which has improved my game. Best thing to do is to go get fitted. Go with an open mind and not be focused on a specific brand.
  14. Has this been brought up before? Ok, here's the scenario. Guy hitting his 2nd shot into a par 5. Uphill, blind shot with a hazard in front of the green. Guy hits shot, but can not tell if it cleared the hazard. We get to green, se no ball on, cant find a ball anywhere over the green either, so he assumes ball didnt clear the hazard. Drops and hits 4th shot into hole for birdie. When going to the flag to retrieve his ball from the hole, there are 2 balls in the cup. The other was his first shot. He holed out his first ball, but dropped because he couldn't find it, then holed his dropped bats well. Guy in the group says he made a 4 since he abandoned the first ball, but I said since first ball was in the hole, he had already completed the hole, and the 2 should stand. Who's correct?
