  1. Apologies if it's been stated already in this thread, but is the Ventus Black w/ velocore that is offered on TM's custom site the real deal or "made for?" I see the Blue is a $250 upcharge.
  2. That would be great. I moved to FL 2 years ago, so no longer in Jersey. I'd love to do that Masters trip with fellow Slicefixer students!
  3. Carry on my best strikes is about 255-260. I have lost about 5-7 mph of CHS over the past 3 years. Many keys for me are captured in this still image:
  4. This was several weeks ago. I started golf late (29) and didn't meet Geoff until I was 45. I'm 53 now. I will never look like his best students, but his concepts and fundamentals have helped me get to better than scratch from a 5/6 hc. I shot 68 on this day from 6700
  5. The book is very good. I agreed to be a test reader and editor, so received multiple drafts to review. In the end Geoff decided there wouldn't be "enough" financial gain in taking it to publication to make it worth it. He also wasn't keen on giving away all of his "secrets" for what would likely only amount to a modest profit. I saw things differently... that it would be a great way to document his legacy and promote his teaching business, but it was obviously his decision. I also thought that there was a period of time when his GolfWRX popularity would have generated enough sales
  6. I'm same as you with G410 LST in flat setting. It looks better to my eye at address and performance is excellent. I will definitely try the new G425 LST if it is lower spin with same or better forgiveness.
  7. Yea, I get it and is fine within your own foursome. My point is in a larger group it becomes too subjective and applied inconsistently. Better to just play it "up" in bunkers w/ scorecard length relief
  8. If you're not playing for anything who cares what he does? Personally, I think if you're going to "set it up" in the bunkers, you just allow it regardless of the lie. Especially if you have an entire group; unambiguous uniformity is best. It becomes too subjective if you try to pick and choose on a case-by-case which lie is worthy of relief and which should be played as is.
  9. Agreed. It's a completely subjective discussion with no absolute correct way to go about it. My personal opinion is that a 60 is a very valuable tool (especially on most US courses) and that learning to be comfortable with that much loft early in a player's development is a positive thing, but it shouldn't be at the expense of learning how to execute chips and pitches with less lofted clubs.
  10. Sure, to play as a guest - get invited by a member. To become a member: Medalist- write a check Seminole - become CEO of a Fortune 500 company and have a decent golf resume as well
  11. Flatter lie angles will only work if you're shallowing sufficiently. Height and arm length are also significant factors. My irons are 2.5 flat. I'm average height with long(ish) arms for me height.
  12. Yep, pretty simple to me, but it's incredible how many believe they're entitled to move the ball to the nearest point that simply gets the ball off of the path, then think they can get a stance plus club length beyond that. (Of course in many cases by the time they take their stance it's no longer the NPCR and relief would be on the other side of the path)
  13. Man, God forbid someone plays by the rules, counts every shot, and finishes 18 in under 4 hours...lol! WTF?
