  1. What are you wearing “Jake from State Farm?”
  2. No they were out of stock unfortunately. I ordered from grips4less as they had them in stock. They are in SoCal, I’m in NorCal. Still really surprised it came so quick, usually it’s still like 2-3 days if I order from A SoCal place.
  3. I am flabbergasted. I ordered my shaft yesterday at 11:00am. It was just dropped at my doorstep just over 25 hours later. Free standard shipping to boot!
  4. Thanks for posting that. I’m guessing the tour green is the dark line on the bottom that’s the most linear? (Looks black on my screen)
  5. Thanks for the input everyone. I’ve hit the nv2kxv before in 65g and wasn’t a fan. Tour Green seems like an interesting option. Maybe check that out in the future. I just ordered an NXT NV75 to replace the old shaft. Figured its cheap and I know I like it.
  6. Thanks, that’s probably the best option. Old reliable with some very minor materials updates.
  7. Good to know. I swung a smoke green 70 6.5 today and it was really stout. I hit some Semi decent shots on the monitor with it but I couldn’t load it. I was hoping the smoke black would be smoother. I also took a couple swings with a smoke yellow 70 6.0 and it felt great, just hit hooks with it though. It was on a different head through than the smoke green. Was wondering if the smoke yellow 70 6.5 might be worth trying.
  8. Ive been playing with an Aldila NV75 for a few years and I like it. Unfortunately it broke shortly after I pulled it and inserted it into a Cleveland Classic XL I just picked up. I need to replace it with but I wasn’t sure if I should be looking outside the NV75. I don’t prefer a really boardy feeling shaft. I was curious about what shafts might be good comparables for the NV75 old or new? Thoughts on how these shafts or any others compare? Diamana D+ Fujikura Fuel Hzrdus Smoke (black)
  9. I started working on this during the lockdown as well. Found out I am constantly striking it out on the toe. Working on bringing the strike towards the center of the face. Probably for the best I'm hitting into a net so I can't fret over the ball flight.
  10. Old thread, and as COVID-19 drags on we do crazy things. I recently started putting cross handed and really have liked how it rolls the ball. So... I toyed around with cross handed chipping today. It was certainly an interesting experience. Cross handed chipping was really pretty consistent. I was really surprised how well it seemed to work. Directional control was really good. Distance control was pretty good too. I got some comparisons of the conventional grip and the cross handed. Interesting to see how the body positions compare. please excuse the non golf attire
  11. Nice setup. Doesn’t look like you have a simulator, are you, or anyone with a net reading this, doing anything to monitor strike or flight? (Foot spray for impact, vertical line on the impact net for start line, etc) One of the coolest thing I’ve seen about the net return is that it can apparently tell you shot shape based on how the ball rolls back to you. Not sure if there’s is a way to do this with different net?
  12. i just started using a moving blanket to hit almost golf balls into. Seems to work fine so far.
  13. I am majorly stoked for you. Way to hang in there through ups and downs.
  14. Downloaded the video last week. I have read all about using the bounce but I always felt I was missing something. Seeing the video and hearing Monte describing the action was very helpful. Getting the description essentially trying to unhinge ("flip") the right wrist (in addition to keeping the right arm moving) seemed to make a big difference in getting this to work for me. Can't wait to give it a try on the course when they reopen after the current situation.
  15. I feel like Elk took down a bunch of the videos of him and Phil unfortunately maybe i was wrong
  16. Curious if you are working with Mick on full swing or short game stuff?
  17. @Obee and others who are working on making the ball roll end over end. This might be a little more on the mentality / mindset side of things. When you are playing a round of golf are you playing with a ball that has the line drawn all the way around? If so do you dissociate hitting a good putt from a putt that goes in the hole? For instance if you hit a putt where the line rolls perfectly but it doesn't go in the hole do you consider it a good putt? Is your only intent during a round to try and roll the ball end over end with minimal wobble? (obviously you want to make the putt and you pick a
  18. Just asked JC_GCturf on Instagram what the vision for the course was. Describes it as a classic golden age style with very few bunkers, and water coming into play a good amount. Says it will compliment the South course. Also rearranged the routing.
  19. No worries on nitpicking at all. I figured they must be getting another deal on fill dirt like they did for the South course to even be considering it. I always really liked the North Course too. I feel like I heard they are going to change the routing somewhat, having the original first few holes tie in with the latter part of the old back 9. Either way totally looking forward to it.
  20. That's what I am hoping they are going for, a heathland vibe would be so good. It's funny, when the project started it was going to be cartpath and drainage work on the North Course. Now the renovations are as extensive as the South.
  21. Yeah I was going to say the west coast (obviously Bandon excluded) but I really don't know enough about the 36 hole+ complexes in Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington to really compare.
  22. It seems to me with all the work they are putting into the North Course at Corica when it's done there will be no better 2 course public option anywhere in California.
  23. I have to do something about my putting. I had 43 putts yesterday with 8 three putts. https://media.giphy.com/media/XuLXZa0PJNiV2/giphy.gif
  24. Are you suggesting 6ft diameter or 6ft on all sides of the hole (12ft diameter)?
