  1. Currently, I have the SZ xtreme driver the sz 3 wood and 5 wood and the King Forged Tec irons. My only non cobra clubs are my 53, 58 Ping Glide 3.0 wedges, my TM sim max hybrid and my Cleveland huntington beach soft 11 putter.
  2. I have a similar GS scale. The notch or scratch is definitely the SW indicator. And the calibration of the scale is as described above. First make sure you surface is level and then make sure the unit is level, if not shim the feet to get it level and then add lead tape where needed to balance the scale wit the weight at zero.
  3. I'm 6'3" play to an 8.5 and despite having really long arms (37" sleeve length, 46 extra long sport coat) I play with longer than average wedges. There is an extensive post here somewhere about fitting taller golfers with no preconceived notions or something, and the main suggestion was 3/8" increments. To make a long story short, try your PW at a 7 iron length (37") and see if you like it, adjust from there to a length, lie and SW you can handle and then extend the rest of the set based on that. My PW is 36 5/8", GW is 38 1/2", SW 36 3/8" and LW is 36 1/4". I tried the LW at 36 1/2" and e
  4. I have been doing this for several years now. I based it off a PW at 36 5/8" and having 1/4 between 9 and pw and then 3/8 going up to the 5 iron. I used 1/4" gaps from pw thru LW. Aside from heavy Swingweights in the SW and LW, it has helped me
  5. On GCquad I had a height of 102 ft. On the course it seems lower, but I've only had one e range session and nine holes played
  6. 1. City, State? Traverse City, MI 2. Handicap? 8.5 3. Current putter? Cleveland Huntington Beach Soft #11 4. What Bettinardi Studio Stock putter do you want to test? Studio Stock #17 5. Are you able to test equipment on a golf course with one week of its receipt? Yes 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Yes
  7. I have a new set of King Foeged Tec irons as well, not the one length though. I played 9 with them yesterday and found my confidence growing with them. Had a range session today in a 20 moh wind off my left shoulder. Gauging distance was pointless but I am seeing a lower ball flight as well. Need a lot more range time to dial these in.
  8. Ping - Driver, SW, LW Taylormade - 3W, 22* Hybrid Cobra - 5W, King Forged Tec irons 5-GW Cleveland - Hunting Beach #11 Soft Putter 38.5" Bridgestone - B RXS yellow ball
  9. Played my first nine holes of the year in Traverse City at the Crown as a test run to see if I want to buy a membership for 2021. The course isn't very long, 6661 from the tips with only 4 par 4s over 400y. Can anyone recommend a better place to get reasonable membership in the TC area that would be better or more challenging? The year membership is $1550 and includes anytime golf with cart, driving range and a 10% discount at the restaurant and pro shop.
  10. I didn't say it was unacceptable to me. I said to the tour. Secondly, swimmers only attire are their trunks, not so with golfers
  11. Over-rated and over-hyped are two very different categories. Over-rated gets a player too much attention for the results they have produced, whereas over-hyped is more marketing-driven to get promote the tour, a sponsor or a brand that someone in a corner office feels is important. Now, I will admit, Rickie is BOTH. But I'm sure the Tour, at some point, thought, 'hey, this kid will draw in a younger demographic and we can sell it'. Then an OEM bought in and other sponsors got on the train and wham you have Rickie the persona. His record and stats don't prove worthy of the accol
  12. Is it really that hard to believe that the absolute truth of what happened, who witnessed it and what details are ever released are being controlled behind the scenes? Obviously someone had to call 9-1-1, so someone had to find him, and probably unconscious. After the DUI incident several years ago, I'm sure Tiger's team created a plan to deal with the details so if he missteps, the details that would hurt is reputation are kept under wraps. Remember he said after that incident "this will NEVER happen again". The simple solution to all this is, Tiger should have a professional d
  13. I would think it will become an image problem for the tour and they will ban the practice. A lightweight rainsuit (non goretex) doesn't weigh much and would solve this problem quickly and probably speed up play. I know the bags are huge and heavy, but stripping down to your skivvies on TV has to be unacceptable at some level.
  14. Haven't read all the comments, but saw something about dealing with pin location last. I get the impression that pros don't directly fire at the pins on most holes. They have a landing are that gives them the best chance for a birdie putt based on slope, tiers and other factors. They are the best in the world, but at least 6 pins per round are not to be messed with and you play for the proper tier or the middle of the green, take your par and move on. I don't think Laser rangefinders would slow down play much, but if they didn't have green books they wouldn't know exactly how far the slope
  15. Based on Saturday's round at the Honda, equipment might be half the issue. His putting was atrocious on Saturday with 4 3-putts and another one so far this morning. None of his stats are great, kinda like Jordan in the middle of his downward spiral. It just takes time when you make majo9r swing changes. I think he is way to flat at the top and that creates a clubhead that is not on the target line for very long in the impact zone. Which means timing is crucial. I think if he raised his hand at the top at least 4 inches (less flat), he wouldn't have to rely on perfect timing
