  1. It would be interesting to know what the swing weight of each club is too. You can get a pretty good idea of it by a couple of measurements. You just need a scale (in grams) and a tape measure to measure the balance point. See this website for exact instructions: https://www.hirekogolf.com/golf-club-swingweight-calculator
  2. May 29 - Stonebrook in Shakopee league play filling in for a co-worker. Shot 37 (+2) on the front 9 with a birdie on #9. Then we played the back 9 for fun and shot 41 (+6) for a 79.
  3. Shot 80 (front 40, back 40) at Highland National in St Paul this weekend. 4 birdies and would have broke 80 easily if not for a triple bogey on a par 3!
  4. There's an Irishman in our men's club that golfs this way for every shot. He said it's because he learned to play cricket first, so gripping the club the traditional way feels 'backwards'. I've seen him play firsthand and he does well (6-9 handicap I think).
  5. I went to my local DSG yesterday and the salesman said all of the forms were snatched up in the first day or so. So I bought an M5 with the Tensei Orange shaft and will be keeping the cellophane on it in case Rory doesn't win and I have to return it. They had all of the drivers zip tied to the display. The salesman said they had 8 walk out the door last week so now they zip tie them down. 😩
  6. I have Maltby TS2's (5-PW) in my bad and really like them. The KE4 is good club too and you can easily adjust the weight on it. I enjoy building my own set and tinkering with the various shafts and swing weights so Maltby components are right up my alley. @Piz has it right when he recommended ordering one club and trying it out. I usually go with a 7 or 8 iron since that's usually the easiest club to hit in my experience.
  7. Very interesting data indeed! I've been playing Chrome Soft since the middle of last summer. But I see the Oncore Elixr scored fairly well and I just happen to have received a free sleeve. I'll definitely give them a try now.
  8. Last year's goal was to get to hdcp of 8 and I did that but it was only for a brief time before it slid up again. 2019 Goals Get handicap to 8 or better and keep it there Eliminate bent left arm (aka chicken wing) at impact! <-- new drills have improved this considerably Get total putts down to around 27 - 31 consistently (currently averaging 34) Get 10+ rounds in the 70's (I had 5 in 2018)
  9. It finally warmed up around here this weekend so I didn't need 3 layers of clothes to golf. So much easier to swing! I managed to get no 6's for the first time ever on Saturday. Usually I double a par 4 or bogey one of the par 5's but I guess all the GolfTec lessons over winter and the drills paid off. I broke 80 5 times last year (a PB for me) but my goal for 2019 is to have 10+ rounds in the 70's this year. So this is a great start!
  10. Crap! I was hoping it was an April Fool's thing. I was enjoying being able to leave the flagstick in!
  11. Hmmm - Funny coincidence this info comes out on April Fool's Day or just my suspicious nature? Source for this @iacas?
  12. I've witnessed the exact same thing happen twice in my foursome. The 1st time was because the wind was blowing the flag stick to the side and the ball bounced off the stick and stopped about 1 foot away. The 2nd time, the hole for the flag stick at the bottom of the cup was really worn out and loose and the ball did the same thing. We all agreed leaving the flag in was the best thing to do except in these types of situations.
  13. Uneekor was at the PGA show this year and showed off a new simulator that looks really interesting and would solve the righty/lefty problem since it's mounted overhead. I think they said it's around $6K. I've never heard of it before so I'm not sure how good it is.
  14. I paid $300 for my TM Spider and that included a fitting. It's much better than the Yes! Marilyn that I had. I kept putting to the left with that thing and the feel is much better on the Spider.
  15. I really like GolfTec. My handicap went from 11 to 9 and for a brief 2 week window I was an 8. I paid for 15 lessons and I've been there 9 times so far. I liked the way the instructor concentrated on fixing just one thing and when I have that ingrained, we move on to the next thing. Currently working on the 'chicken wing' which is really hard for me to do for some reason.
