  1. I agree with this In regard to the arm lock, it is often described as "anchoring" the grip against the forearm and as far as a pivot point, doesn't the shoulder in that style of putting become just that? Either allow or ban ALL styles of anchoring.
  2. Only had that issue with one batch of gloves and they replaced not only the ones I had bought and not worn yet, but also the ones I had worn and still had around! Never had the problem since.
  3. When I first put the MTB Black in play this year, granted on a limited basis, I wasn't sure that it was going to perform as well, be as long as the 2020 Chrome Soft I was using. However, after totally switching over for the last 10 rounds I have to admit I was wrong. The ball does everything I want out of a ball including added distance. I'm now glad I took advantage of the Holiday special and got the 5-dozen pack.
  4. Changed the way the data is presented, added some additional stats. Too many changes to detail each one. One thing that hasn't changed yet is the Shots Gained - still only against tour pro.
  5. With that square toe I don't know what category Sqairz golf shoes fit into but since I got my first pair I won't wear any other golf shoe.
  6. Nice update to the stats on the app just released! Different way of looking at them and some new stats added. Really like this update! I still wish there was a way to pick and choose which rounds to include instead of just the options they currently offer, last 1, 5, 10, etc. Being able to pick and choose would enable one to see stats by course, for example.
  7. First, I would us the "Show Club" function and see if the club is recognized when wearing it on your left wrist while gripping the club cack-handed. If it is, just keep it that way. If not and you want to wear it on your right wrist then make sure you change the hand setting on the watch. Editing is much easier to do on a PC or laptop.
  8. Really liking the look of this new "Speed" series from Sqairz. This is the White with Silver, my favorite. Also come in Black and Gray.
  9. I thought OnCore was DTC only until I saw the Avant and Calibre in a pro shop at a municipal course I used to play. I have on one rare occasion gotten a dozen of the Snell MTB off Amazon
  10. I've played the same ball so long that the lettering has become unreadable without taking it out of play. However, if it has a cut or scrape from hitting a tree or cart path I will no longer use it. If it feels smooth it is good to go; if it feels "rough" in any spot out it goes.
  11. I had the same problem with a broken belt clip and, like you, they quickly sent me another one. I got fed up about a year ago when their server(s) were up and down constantly and, probably due to COVID, they were slow to get them back up. Plus they never responded to any attempts to contact them. So I went with the Shot scope V3 and haven't looked back. I do prefer the way Game Golf presents some of the data and the way you can look at cumulative data for any subset of rounds, by date range or a pick and choose method.
  12. PW and AW from the APEX CF16 set, then 54° SW and 58° LW (Callaway MD5 JAWS). Sometimes I'll replace the 58° LW with the PM Grind 60°.
  13. I know I've seen guys hit out of the woods left of that creek before. I think only the creek itself is a penalty area.
  14. I switched over to Shot Scope last year due to similar problems with the servers being down all too frequently. I just checked and was still able to get into my dashboard but got a weird sign-in pop-up that looked like it was in some foreign language and with the word "error" shown several times. However, I did fill in my username and password anyway and got in.
  15. That's false! They don't claim that you will gain yardage "simply by putting them on". With better balance, stability and traction these shoes "allow you to swing faster" and that is what leads to a gain in yardage. "Allow you to swing faster", not cause you to swing faster. The swing starts from the ground up and there are a lot of articles and studies on how to effectively use "ground forces" in the golf swing. More and more shoe companies, not just Sqairz, are promoting golf shoes as part of one's equipment leading to increased performance, specifically distance. Check out Payn
  16. When I do refer to it for distances, unlike you using it to the front of the green, it is usually the distance to the back edge of the green due to trouble in front that I look at. That way, even if I miss-hit it I'll end up center or front of the green. Bunkers I can typically laser and I have not found the V3 to be very good at distances to water at the course I play due to where the water first comes into play left or right of the hole before crossing the fairway or becoming a pond that the ball has to be kept short of.
  17. I think every situation could be different. If the group on the correct hole has to wait to hit their next shot, waiting for the green to clear for example, it would make sense for the player who hit his ball onto the wrong hole to hit first assuming he doesn't have to wait. I think there are a lot of variables that could dictate who should hit when.
  18. Weather, course conditions and course set up can all be factors in how scores are affected in relation to anticipated distribution but even though conditions when you played you might have considered tough it still boils down only to the scores posted that day and apparently those scores posted were better than anticipated based on handicaps.
  19. Sqairz has introduced a new series of shoes with a different look to them (they still have the square toe and all other features) just a different look. Following is the White with silver and they also have black and gray:
  20. I'm like you in that I don't want or need it to be anything more than what it is, a collector of shot data for data analysis to help me identify my strengths and weaknesses. I don't even really care about using the GPS distances on the course while playing due to the current inaccuracies of GPS technology. I rarely refer to it during the round, depending more on my laser rangefinder. Maybe when L5 is fully deployed and accuracy can get to be as precise as a couple of feet, but even then GPS accuracy is always quoted as being at 95% of the time.
  21. I have been hesitant to put in play the MTB Blacks that I picked up around the Holidays as I want to give them a fair test. It has been cold and damp all year so far and it wouldn't give a true indication of performance. For example, it was in the upper 30's when we teed off yesterday with a cold North breeze. However, it now looks like the weather is finally going to break next week with temps around 60° or more at tee time with highs in the 80s. So I figure this will be a good time to finally put them in play!
  22. Wouldn't you still compensate whoever picked them up for you for the shipping charges?
