  1. Mr. DShepley, that is both sad and Glorious at the same time. This season has been better because you shared your journey from the seed of wonder that became inspired such that it grew into a successful first season as course architect, engineer and greens keeper. I thank you Sir for sharing your passion with us and from afar offer a toast your achievement. Well done!
  2. Bortass, as I read what you said about pros moving to the left in the backswing, I read about that too and somewhere I recalled an old Lee Trevino vid where he said something about feeling like the left side was leaning against a doorway and rotating back then through the ball. I've experimented with that on some level and find it very simple and produces the sensation of the left hip and cheek moving toward the target line in the backswing. Reading about your par 5's has me recounting some of our par 5's in this area that I play in varying ways to score. several that have trouble
  3. Sounds like a great day! Congrats on your progress and hope your round is as pleasing.
  4. Those 575MMC irons are incredible. I have found they're damn near impossible to replace with anything else. I've experimented with a few designs, and so far,the 565MC's are the top contender that could displace them because I'm not playing as much and they're more tolerant of less perfect strikes and within 1/2 a club in length while maintaining consistency.
  5. Well it had been a busy few weeks. Glad to check in and see how you’ve been doing. Good chance during winter to really just work with your swing and let the score be what it is. Ballstriking itself becomes the focus and it’s own reward. Funny how just enjoying the ballstriking can surprise you with a good nine or round. Enjoy your journey into winter golf.
  6. The ballstriking is key to improving scores and you are clearly striking the ball well often enough to be gaining confidence. It was so good to see that you were so pleased with the round because of what you saw the ball doing, rather than just judging by the number on a card that didn't play any part in getting around the course. It is important to recognize quality shots and have the confidence building that recognize how close even the slight mishits are to pure. Congrats on the growth
  7. I don't have numbers to offer from a fitting. With my forged 34* 7 iron, I carry it 160. With the 31* 0211, I'm about 150 with the MMT80 and 155-160 with the Elevate 95 stiff. With the MMT80's, it felt like I had to wait on it to catch up as the hands reached about waist high and really delay the release. As a result, it felt as if I was beginning to flip through impact. I have a late release and have no issues hitting the ball high. At the same time, flighting the ball down with both shafts is pretty simple. I like the 0211's a lot, but am not sure I'm seeing much if a
  8. In the taper tip they'll be constant weight. In the parallel tip they are not.
  9. When I want more thickness, I use the grip tape but do not remove the non-stick layer that is normally peeled to reveal the glue. 2 of these layers should provide the build up you're looking for.

  13. If the grooves are closer together and slightly shallower than most wedges you will find, yes they are conforming to the 2010 groove rule. They also happen to be excellent wedges. If the grooves are "standard width" and depth, they are not conforming.
  14. My very favorite gap wedge is Wishon 575MMC (50*) set wedge. I am confident with both the MB and CB from 100-120, high or flighted down. Ironically, I never really used it for pitching or chipping.
