  1. Yeah got it, I was thinking the reverse as I thought of it as the shaft angle going up. I now understand it as thinking if the toe is up or down.
  2. Yeah I saw the upright (from 56 to 60) option on the chart and thought id try it next. Does the upright slightly push it more right? Is it meant for a taller player? What reasons did you go to that settibg? Ill try it this weekend when i head to the golf dome. And yeah, so far I like the feel of the M2 but bought it in Nov so I havent hit it outside once. My golfdome has about 100 yards of travel and so far the flight seems good.
  3. So when you square the face when it becomes closed/open at address, are you supposed to simply rotate the shaft in your grip? Or push the handle forward or backward? I'll admit I tried watching the vid but it was a little hard to get through. I understand though about the bore of the hosel and how it changes the shaft.
  4. I got an M2 and was so far playing with the standard setting. Last night for the 1st time I actually looked into what the various settings actually do. I then read this website about how they actually work. Im kinda confused about how you make them work. If you add loft, Its still a 10* degree with a closed face. The loft is then added because you alter the face during the swing to act as a 12* driver? Do you see the closed face at address and then twist it, thus turning it into the higher loft? https://pluggedingolf.com/how-to-adjust-your-driver/ This is counterintuitive, but if you experiment with your own adjustable driver you’ll see that it’s correct. Set the driver to the highest loft and you’ll see a closed face. Set it to the lowest loft and the face will be open. For those interested in the “why,” here it is: the driver you bought only has one loft. If it’s a 10 degree driver, it will always be 10 degrees, no matter how you twist it. By twisting it (changing the face angle), however, you are taking what was a 10 degree driver with a square face and making it a 10 degree driver that is, for example, 2 degrees closed. Now, to get that face square at impact, you need to open that 10 degree driver a couple degrees, thus adding loft.
  5. Mark Crossfield vs. Taylormade

    I prefer golyspy for reviews anyway. I know this year they have to buy their own TM/Callaway/PXG clubs to test. Personally dont think someone should be signed by someone and trying to review stuff.
  6. Kelvin Miyahira and His Ideas

    I use the foot spray on my driver, and I was having trouble figuring out why my heel hits were turning into low hooks as I thought gear effect should push them right. His slomo video here helped me figure it out. I think my club is rolling/closing too much through impact.
  7. How Much Did You Spend in 2017 on Greens Fees?

    Canadian April to late Oct playing season....I think maybe 900-1000 if I kept track? Living in Saskatoon this year and I know the membership I'll be joining will be $1200 for a twilight membership.
  8. What are Your 2018 Golf Goals?

    1-Not sure how to make this a goal....but last year when I encountered a big straight pull problem giving me OB penalties, I wasted about a 6 weeks trying to fix it myself. Waited until 2 weeks were left in the season to get a lesson to figure it out. This year if I encounter a problem, I will not wait that long again. 2-Would like to get down my GG HI down from 14.3 to 12ish. Right now when I compare myself to a 10.0 HI in GG, I think I can get to it. Im losing 4.38 strokes in my putting and 2.59 strokes in my short game compared to a 10.0 HI. 3-Related number 1 goal......Keep the driver in play more.
  9. Recap Your 2017 Golf Goals

    1-GG HI got down to 14.3, wanted something in the 12s. Less penalties from driver and better putting gets me there. (more details will go into swing thread) Currently when comparing to a 10.0 HI on GG... Avg gain .67 strokes driving Avg. gain .39 strokes approach Avg lose 2.59 strokes short game Avg lose 4.38 strokes putting 2-More winter practise helped, I felt I didnt waste the 1st few weeks back. I was doing mirror work and golf dome work with foot spray. 3-Overall, my putting still sucks. 4-I know some injuries can be random, but would say I didnt "push" it this year with more offdays, and I didnt get injured once. Unintentional goal i consider an improvement.... Gained distance on my swing by about 2 clubs.
  10. What Christmas Golf Gifts did you Get? 2017 Edition

    FiL got me 2 boxes of those new matte Wilson golf balls. I love the matte look, just not the price of the Volvik ones so never got them before. Mom got me a really nice UA sweater pullover. Its nice enough that I can easily use it off the course a lot. For myself, I got the 5i from my set that was missing. As well, i found a 94 Parallax wedge that resembles my iron set more so my Nike LW will be retired.Might still pull off a boxing week rangefinder for myself...
  11. Why do you want a "Gimme"?

    I dont get it, I also dont get why the spread of dropping at a spot with 1 penalty when you lost your ball or went OB is fine for so many. Probably comes from the same mindset.
  12. Buying Premium Used Golf Balls - Survey

    Personally, I buy my balls off a great guy on kijiji. Just a retired fellow golfer who knows exactly where the lost balls end up on his course. He meticulously organizes them and sells them dirt cheap. Just got 10 dozen Noodles off him for $20;
  13. GAME GOLF Live now on sale! Worldwide!

    Great price, Id jump all over that if I didnt already have a unit.
  14. For me, when playing a regulation course I've never had a round without a tee-shot going OB/Lost.
  15. Review - PGA Superstore practice plan

    I would totally do something like that. Had no clue Golftec offered something like this. I wish more indoor places offered discount use rates like this, indoor practise gets expensive really quickly.
