  1. hEY @Nave ! Sorry for not responding. I am in West Fort Worth. I am trying to heal from shoulder/knee injuries (AGAIN!) so I haven't been to the range or course for over a month. Have a feeling it will be later this month, weather permitting. Let's keep it going! Best, -Marv
  2. Welcome to TST! Best of the forums! Take time to explore. Best, -Marv
  3. Both ideas...buy used and get on a launch monitor...are good. I needed to know what shaft, loft, and other dynamics were best for me as an old, slow-swinging, high HCP golfer. So I worked with a friend at Dick's. Ultimately I settled on my older Cleveland driver that I bought used online after research and comparisons. Best, -Marv
  4. Several years ago, one of the oldest courses in our town planted legumes and fescue in several bunkers that grew a few inches high. These were genuine hazards to avoid. Very difficult to play out of. But "grass bunkers" were in the original course plans from early 1900's. Best, -Marv
  5. I use Golf Pad GPS Tags. Concerned that they MIGHT come off, I looked and looked for a product that says it is for plastic and rubber. Then a user recommended using electrical tape around the edges of the tags and top of grip. Appears to work and hardly noticeable. BTW...The only PURE grip I use is on my putter. Love it. The hole in the butt end seems a little larger than my other grips, but not sure. Best, -Marv
  6. Hire a lawyer in a cheap suit! Obviously manufacturer liability for a defective product that attracts ex-jock docs! Seriously, rest...get well. Best, -Marv
  7. YES...Working on that myself...Ball striking and flight now good...HCP will fall. Very uplifting. Best, -Marv
  8. Interested in what you do and find. In my case, as a 74-year-old, I thought light senior shafts would be for me. That is true in my drivers. BUT interestingly, I found slightly heavier regular shafts are best in my irons as opposed to lighter senior shafts in my other set of irons. Not sure why. Keep us posted. Best, -Marv
  9. GOLF VLOGS UK GOLFMATES on YouTube...Kind of a quirky fun golf vlog. Best, -Marv
  10. And in Hong Kong, Shenzhen, etc. On the other hand, some of the same shops that turn out OEM products do make their own designed lines of golf clubs (not clones or fakes), some of which look pretty nice and at a very favorable price point. But as an amateur, why would I trust my eyes rather than trust the engineering and quality control of say, Mizuno or Srixon, and pay the price for that? So I steered clear. Best, -Marv
  11. Thank you both. Over the last 3 months, after noticing tension in my forearms and wrists, I have been working on setup and a relaxed, easy back and forward swing...and I am now more sensitive to the clubhead. Not trying to control it. Just a loose practice swing with focus on the target, step in and swing it through. These are all "feels" for me so I don't get ball-bound trying to hit at the ball. Best, -Marv
  12. And now we now DL3 has been added...How EXCITING! Best, -Marv
  13. HCP - Forward tees HCB (OLD) - "I don't want to play golf with coffin-dodgers who always ask where did it go?"
  14. I really tried to care one way or the other. But I don't. Maybe why they are out is a lot of people feel the same way. Best, -Marv
