  1. Has anyone returned theirs? I'm feeling like the numbers are iffy, and even if based on alignment, with no way to be 100% sure it just casts doubt into everything.
  2. The GCQuad is ”The official launch monitor for mygolfspam". That's a line that smells of sponsorship so would stand to reason. Likewise it's why the likes of crossfield (also sponsored) don't mention it. Not saying the review is incorrect as I haven't tested myself but why anyone trusts mygolfsponsor on anything is totally beyond me.
  3. FYI, Mine's arriving today from Hot Golf. No email from them only from DPD. Hope you get yours too...
  4. Did you get your order from HotGolf? I ordered release day and they are now saying the have no idea when hey will arrive. Edit: Just saw in another post you too haven't received it.
  5. Sounds more positive - I too have an order at Hot Golf.
  6. For Europe - UK specifically. A lot of shops have updated delivery eta for Sep 20th onwards as well so looks to be true. I am losing faith rapidly in this product.
  7. Garmin are now saying release is not until the last week of September.
  8. Pre-ordered. At the very least being able to play your home course from the comfort of your home is worth the price to me, and being able to play new courses at home before you go there in real life is going to be pretty cool, especially as you can play with your friends if they have one... They will hit it out of the park due to their 42,000 course database.
  9. Does the Vivoactive record golf as an activity - i.e shows the walk and treats it as a walk? This is something the S62 can do but my Fenix can't.
  10. +1 I wish we could just download a file to be honest. I am sure Drive4Dough worked that way IIRC. I am not a fan of being forced to go through a third-party app or website to view content that's been purchased.
  11. Way more detail, more drills, some example lessons and a rather jarring sound before the start of each video ? Seriously, at $18 it's pretty cheap and if it's not what you expected just think of it as a nice way to support Monte for all the FREE content he gives out including the original video.
  12. Release the club early always works for me.
  13. Trying to buy now - to be honest, the website and buying funnel is painful. Monte if you read this, it could be so much better at converting sales! Will try again later.
  14. Over the years I have read of 2 conflicting "feels" for the golf swing. If you imagine you are stood in your address position with a basketball between your hands - the two swings appear to be 1) passing the basketball sideways to someone stood on the target line to your right. 2) passing the basketball to someone behind you just over your right shoulder. I often toy around with both feels and have played good golf with both of them at times, but I wonder which is more 'standard'? OR does anyone have any other feels they can relate a golf swing too? This is very similar to the swing being described as skipping a stone vs throwing an axe into the ball. Essentially 2 completely different motions.
  15. Some lift others don't. Some take it inside outside. Some are quick others are slow. There are no absolutes in the golf swing. Do what works for you.
  16. I have an off-the-shelf Epic Flash with Mitsubishi Tensei AV Blue and wonder if it's a good fit for these metrics or of there is something else I should try. Swing Speed 101mph Ball Speed 147mph Launch 11.2 Degrees Spin 2300rpm Transition: Pretty average, not smooth, not violent. I know I am better off getting fitted but I don't have that option at the moment.
  17. Any update on Kelvin? Edit: Just saw post from 2020, good to know he's recovering.
  18. The first hole at my club has been redesigned and it's pretty tough going, the last 2 competitions have averaged double bogey for the field and I'm struggling to find a comfortable strategy. The hole is down hill with OOB all the way down the left. I can reach the second bunker with driver. 3 Wood, 2 iron and 3 iron can easily go OOB if you hit it too straight or slightly pull it. Anything less gives a long second. Everything right of the green falls sharply down into the row of bushes which makes a long iron in very dangerous. It's almost impossible to get up and down from there and often a penalty drop if it nestles in the bushes. *White tees marked in red pen on the image
  19. MM for me. I've always struggled to draw the ball and his tipping the shaft was a light bulb moment for me. He has more of an emphasis on feeling things with the hands and arms too which resonates with me and is more similar to swings I like (Tiger, Rose, Els for example) who have more active hands. I find GG far more entertaining to watch but his swing ideas are quite far away from my natural tendencies and I feel you largely need to work with what you've got to be successful.
  20. As with any product on a continuous release cycle they will have their next 2 or 3 drivers designed up already along with whatever marketing gimmick they will assign to that particular club/year.
  21. They lost me with the Burner irons when Nick Faldo claimed a 25 yard increase with irons.
  22. Bashing the engineers? How on earth did you get to that conclusion from my post?
  23. Sounds like you've simply jumped from the TaylorMade marketing hype train to TXG hype train to be honest - from the frying pan in to the fire as they say.
  24. This. I can't believe how many people believe all the amazing reviews by individuals and businesses who directly profit from people buying/getting fit for golf clubs. Honestly you're just as good taking an M2 head to a fitter and asking them to fit you.
