    Graphite Shaft Irons

    I have dabbled with some graphite shafts recently. I have noticed that there is virtually no increase in club head speed, but I do notice that I am able to hit the ball MUCH higher which does help with stopping the ball on the green.
  2. For me it is no worse than what Kenny Perry did in 2009 at the FBR (Phoenix). In fact I'd argue that what Perry did was much worse. The ball when from invisible to visible. In 2009, the feedback from most everyone was that what Perry did was typical for most golfers and not a penalty. To me, if what Perry did was not a penalty then Spieth did not cross the line either. https://www.golfdigest.com/story/kenny-perry-did-he-or-didnt-he This is just one of those things that is going to be hard to police.

    Yardages Throughout the Bag

    Somehow I missed this the first go around. I am firmly in the purple and the iron distances are not right. I hit my 7 iron about 155 this has something like 144. So it is about one club short in the irons. I hit my 4 wood about 210 so a bit longer than in the purple chart.
  4. Well, 2 thoughts. Since you are looking for thoughts. 1. Post the number from the GC2 so we can see more what you are talking about. There are experts here who when the see can help to decipher some suggestions. 2. This one is my recommendation, post your swing in a swing thread. Best way to get good advice around here.

    Why Don't More Clubs Paint The Holes?

    But wait...it should be helpful because it says "Par Aide" on the bottle. It must then aid me in making par, no?

    Sounds fantastic. Be sure to include some photos of the courses and the trip.

    Miura Story

    Very cool.
  8. Boy this brings back some memories. This was my first full set of clubs. I played them all the way through high school. They were fantastic irons. If you want to sell them eBay is going to be the place to do so. I recommend you start them at a price you feel is comfortable for you and let the market see if it is higher than that, or if they don't sell if they are lower than that. There are a number of guys who search eBay looking for older clubs that are brand new. A few guys at my club play a tournament series where they can having nothing in their bag newer than 1990 and they are always on the lookout for older clubs that are in new condition. I will say though, they aren't looking to pay $1,000 for them, you'll need a collector for that but if the collector is out there they'll be searching eBay when your clubs are there.

    Quest from 6 handicap to plus golf in a year

    Glad to see you have a goal and a plan. I will be following you closely as I am about a 6 or so now but with limited practice capabilities (a wife and a kiddo) so I will interested to see if you are able to breakthrough to the plus side.

    Over and Under Achieving Golfers

    I think this is a pretty cool concept to think about @saevel25. It would be interesting to see if strokes gained putting from a certain distance helped with that over performance or driving or if there are any trends related to individual strokes gained statistics.

    Which Golf Pill Would You Take?

    This is the easiest poll I have taken....ever. Can I get it shipped overnight?

    My Swing (kpaulhus)

    Great work @kpaulhus
  13. I find many of GG's videos interesting. His style for me isn't the best. He is all over the place, but @mvmac has said his stuff comes from Como, so at a base level it is pretty good. I don't think a golfer has to exaggerate the Snead squat move that he does. For example when I watch Dana's videos I don't see him emphasizing that move nearly as much. They both talk in great detail about shaft flattening but Dana does not seem to have his students squatting quite as much as GG's.

    Ice Skating Redux - Tonya Harding

    I really enjoyed it. They maybe went a bit overboard with the mother character but I liked the style in which they decided to tell the story.

    Ice Skating Redux - Tonya Harding

    I know this thread isn't about the movie, but you should see the movie. That topic is addressed. I don't know for sure, but if I was guessing I would say it has something to do with the MONEY.
