  1. Golf Subpar is great. It's my go-to podcast for when my most recent Audible book is finished before I get my next credit.
  2. Which LM do you use? My GCQuad will be here in a month so I'm still using my GC2. I haven't downloaded GSPro- will look into it!

    Golf Wife?

    Assume you're able to "Weird Science" your significant other and can choose only one of the following traits- which are you going with?
  4. I voted 3w/hybrid. The course I play most often has one par 4 that is 445y and routinely into the wind. I love the challenge of this hole as there are a few other very short par 4s to make up for it. I don't mind having one of two holes like this per round. Confidence wise I love my 2i and enjoy hitting it, but then my confidence wavers until I get back to my 6 iron or less.
  5. Nice wheels! I've been contemplating purchasing something along these lines. What other carts did you mostly consider?
  6. I recently voiced the same concern as the OP to a friend of mine and they pointed me towards this article linked below. I loath my perceived lack of consistency, but the article suggests that scoring consistency is a bit of a myth.

  7. Realized when writing my "Have you Improved This Year" post that I can finally claim the under par badge!
  8. I answered yes and yes. I shot my lowest round ever (and first under par) in 2020. My average (against GHIN differential) dropped almost 3 full strokes and my handicap dipped below 5 for the first time ever. After building a golf simulator in my garage last winter my ball striking has continued to improve and I see no reason for that to stop in 2021. I am also signed up for the Super Speed program / challenge here in the forums in an effort to get back to my pre-shoulder surgery distance of 2019.
  9. I only use a tee if the teeing ground is chewed up and worse than a nice fairway lie.
  10. I'm in! I have the Speed Sticks and the Swing Speed Radar (along with a Mevo and Mevo+ (slight golf obsession here)). I'll get my initial speed later tonight- I'm working late since I'll be volunteering at the Houston Open Thurs-Sun.
  11. Congrats on the low 9! Do you have one of the Garmin golf watches? I have the S62 myself and love it. I added the club sensor to my putter and really like not having to enter my putts now.
  12. It was a (frustrating) tale of two nines yesterday on a beautiful course with tough undulating greens. 38-44---82 I played solidly on the front 9 posting a birdie against 3 bogeys for a 38. I then proceeded to hit two balls OB on number 10 in route to a nine on the hole... I somewhat recovered with a string of pars but then 4-putted a par 3 and closed with another double bogey on number 18 after finding the face of the greenside bunker for a what-could've-been 82.
  13. My week spent at The Greenbrier a few years ago is still by far my most enjoyable golf trip. Difficult to choose just one picture from the many that I took that week, but this one stands out in my eye.
  14. Great wrist action on both of those
  15. 45° (PW), 50° (AW), 54°, and 60° is all I carry. I enjoy hitting 1/2 and 3/4 shots, dead handed shots, etc.
  16. Part of the reason the PGA/LPGA Tour is fun to watch is to see the skill demonstrated. There is something romantic about being able to outfit your bag with the same clubs and balls and go out to the same courses and see just how much better those folks on TV are than us. I volunteer at the Houston Open every year (thus getting the chance to play the course after the tourney) and going to the back tees and hitting some of those tee shots is mind boggling... It makes me appreciate the skill of the guys and gals on Tour and keeps me going to the range/course trying to improve. I am fea
  17. Both me and my dad were fit for new irons and it was an eye opening experience for me. Prior to being fit I did not realize how much there is to gain (or lose) from changing shaft flex, shaft weight, swing weight, club head weight, club height center of gravity.... What ended up being a perfect fit for me was on the totally opposite end of the spectrum from what worked for my dad. I loved the look of the Mizuno's that he ended up with, but for whatever reason with my swing they just didn't feel right or perform as well as others for me. My advice would be to go into it with an open mind.
  18. I saw the less than stellar reviews, but am hoping my experience is closer to that of the reviewer from MyGolfSpy: We Tried It: Salted Smart Insole | MyGolfSpy Has Salted Smart Insoles engineered an insole that can help you use the ground and hit it longer with every shot? We took it to the course to find out.
  19. So these are on sale for Amazon Prime Day for only $109. I picked up a pair- will be happy to post a review once received on Thursday.
  20. I disagree with Ian as far as making rules changes for the Tour as a response to BDC and others hitting it longer. I do have firsthand knowledge of how much the angle of attack (hitting up vs hitting down on the ball) affects distance off the tee, it has made a big difference in my game. The average weekend golfer would probably benefit from hitting up on it more.
  21. I'm absolutely going for it. Chipping out means wondering "what if" while going for it gives me a chance at a career round and at a minimum a good story to tell my dad.
