  1. Now that OOB golf is basically going away, which online scoring and stats sites do you like the best, preferably free ones. Including iphone data entry. What i loved about oob golf was that as I was playing a round it would kind of predict on the iphone how my score was going to end up, as I played. I doubt anything else does that now, but anyway I need to find a new solution for entering scores and basic stats into iphone and tracking it over time on the computer in some way. Seems like there are a lot of alternatives right now, its a bit overwhelming to consider them all...just won
  2. I just go the 712's. Absolutely LOVE them.
  3. ban it. Golf clubs are designed to be held in the hands and swung. The problem isn't the length, its the act of using the body to anchor it. That goes against the spirit of golfing, which is taking a stick and swinging it in your hands. What if someone came up with some new fangled kind of iron which could somehow be connected to your body in a way to eliminate casting? Would we tolerate that? I don't think so, not in a million years. Being a good golfer is a huge part about mastering control over your hands. If someone is able to bypass this issue by anchoring the club or
  4. oobgolf's iphone app is very well designed. You can configure which stats you want to track to keep the entry screen compact and un cluttered. If you make par, you just tap the score button to accept par, or hit +/- for bogie or birdie, etc. Takes one or two taps to enter the score basically. All of the stats have sensible GUI controls to make them very fast to enter. It takes only a few taps to enter all my stats that I am tracking, while walking/riding to the next hole. I track also Playable drive, fairway it(left, right, hit miss), putts, 1st putt distance, approach(left, right,
  5. I just tried this app for 15 sessions or so and settled into a Phdcp that is floating up and down between 2.5 to 3.5. I consider that pretty good, especially compared to the pros. Ha my scores don't reflect that, so I know I need to work on other aspects more, such as green reading, lining up and distance control. I think this is a very valuable training device if used the right way. I do not think its good to groove in your putt strokes with this device attached, due to the weight. You should do much much more practice with it detached. But when you are ready to break d
  6. I love my Scotty Cameron Fastback. Best putter I've ever owned without question. I always try out different putters when I go to golf shops, and I just keep coming back to the SC's, especially the fastback. It has just the right amount of weight and has a comfortable swing , its very nice to look down at with just enough straight lines and curved lines to help me line up right. Worth every penny. I've spent far more on drivers over the years then putters, but putting is 50% of the game.
  7. So is it fair to say that most modern day "blades" are in fact muscle backs, due to the beefing up that manufacturers have made to them in terms of trying to put just a bit more weight under the ball without carving out a cavity?
  8. ahhh. So a muscleback is a cavity back + the muscle at the sweet spot?
  9. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't a larger offset also change the trajectory? It seems to me that with less offset, in order to close the face square, while keeping the hands ahead, the club will be de-lofted more then it would be with offset. I am thinking with offset the hands don't have to be as far ahead, and thus the club is not de-lofted as much, something like that. Just thinking out loud here.
  10. Sorry I'm still not getting it. A blade is pretty much flat on back right? A cavity back moves the mass away from the sweet spot. I thought I read that a muscle back actually puts MORE mass behind the sweet spot then a pure blade. WHY?
  11. That article discusses blades vs cavity backs, but I could not find anything which explains the purpose of "muscle backs".
  12. I don't accept the premise that feel is only about sound. I can DEFINITELY feel something really nice in my hands when I hit mizunos compared to other irons, off the shelf with no fancy shafts. Does the sound contribute, absolutely but its not only the sound. The vibration characteristics of the club are what influence the sound and undeniably would effect feel in your hand as well. An awful lot of people have attested for years that forged feel better then cast, there is no point in debating how or why they feel better, but countless people seem to feel they do. I suspect that the
  13. Another question, from a results perspective, what is the difference between a blade and muscle back? Obviously the cavity back widens the sweet spot. What does adding the mass behind the sweet spot do, compared to a simple blade? Also, can someone describe to me what is the iron offset exactly and how does that effect performance. thanks
