  1. Still have not received my ERC Soft from Callaway I ordered in July. When I asked for an update a few weeks ago I was told October 13. That day has come and gone.
  2. Other than on a a hole with a lot of trouble where I am likely to lose one, I've played the Snell MTB Black all year.
  3. That's why I've become a believer in the SIK putters, or the Cobra putters using the SIK technology inserts. With graduated lofts from 1° to 4°, theoretically the proper amount of loft is applied whether one hits up or down on the ball. Whether that is truly "optimal" for all greens and grasses I really can't say. What I can say is that my Cobra Vintage Nova puts an incredible roll on the ball!
  4. I’ve never had a problem with the watch sensing putts (other than tap-ins) on the few occasions I’ve gone to left hand low (I’m right handed). Give it a try before resorting to tapping the watch band. I think it should pick it up.
  5. Monday I bought the Cobra Vintage Nova. What a great, great roll it puts on the ball!
  6. You are not alone. A lot of people do that. I have never found it necessary but maybe I should start doing it on tap-in putts, Currently, the watch does a poor job of sensing those really short putts. By recording the number of times I used the putter while standing over the hole it records that last put as being from 2'.
  7. I just make sure when I grab a club or multiple clubs from the bag I hold then well down the shaft near the hosel until I select the club I am going to use. I think Arccos recommends holding the clubs upside down, or at least they used to.
  8. There is definitely a distinction between those two rules. However, I'm not sure that I would classify the damage to the ball in that image as just a "split or crack". Does the ball have to actually disintegrate into two or more unattached pieces to meet Rule 4.2.b?
  9. I can see where that would be an issue if you wait until trying to edit after four rounds, especially after playing different courses. The question I have is why are strokes being missed? The only strokes missed for me are if I chunk a chip or bunker shot, or where there is a severe slope and a chip that doesn't make the crest comes back right to my feet so in those instances the ball doesn't travel far enough for the watch to recognize a shot has been taken instead of a practice swing.
  10. I take no notes on the course and it doesn't take me anywhere near even 15 minutes to edit my rounds. You are aware that you can add penalty strokes and drops during the round? I, personally, rarely see a stroke missed or added and I have no problem remembering every shot I hit until at least my next round. I have personal experience now with Game Golf, Golf Pad and Shot Scope. I admit I've never used Arccos and know only what I have read others say about it. I think Shot scope is better than the others I've used and probably as good or better than Arccos. None of the others that I have used keep one's score, IIRC, and I don't believe Arccos does either. I think if score keeping is that critical for you there may be other devices that can do what you are looking for.
  11. I think it is also because it is now almost impossible to meet the environmental restrictions in the U.S.
  12. All you have to do to understand the delays caused by Fed-ex is to read all the horror stories from those who ordered clubs from PXG as they use Fed-ex exclusively. In regard to response time from WM you may have to take into account possible staffing issues that many, many companies are going through especially for these lower paying jobs and maybe give them some slack. Just finding workers for these positions is a challenge and small companies in particular can't afford to pay what is needed these days to hire these people. Then you have the issue of workers you do hire getting sick with COVID. I've run into extensive delays even getting to talk to CS people at various customers over the last year and a half due to limited staffing.
  13. For most of us, 10 yards is one club less into a par 4. That alone can make a big difference. Granted, 20 to 40 yards more would be ideal but such gains are hard to come by.
  14. Then the putting edits, for the most part, are when the location is close to the edge as GPS accuracy isn't good enough to get that precise. If you use the putter from off the green it is considered a "short game" shot, a chip, and not a "putt".
  15. I've been wearing Sqairz exclusively since mid-July last year and have to agree with the comfort! I was going to go to the range a couple of weeks ago where I knew they were going to be using mats that day. I put on an a pair of spikeless golf shoes I have so I wouldn't have to change shoes at the range. Twenty minutes after walking around the house with them the lack of comfort compared to the Sqairz shoes was very noticeable. Also, the traction of the Sqairz shoes can't be beat!
  16. In manual mode you have the steps correct. You tap the upper right button each time you use the putter whether you are on or off the green. Then, once you hole out, standing over the hole, you tap the bottom right button which should have a flag icon next to it. In auto mode, and I am assuming you have the putter tag installed on your putter (not needed in manual mode), it will automatically detect each time you use the putter and not button pushes are required until you hole out. Them standing over the hole you push the button that corresponds to the number of times you used the putter on that hole, with 1 being upper left, 2 being upper right, 3 being lower left and a > on the bottom right to take you to another screen where you can select 4 or 0 (incase you chipped in and never used the putter). I also assume you know how to switch between those two modes on the watch.
  17. I went from the Epic Flash to a PXG 0811X+ Prototype driver. With the 3° flat setting and almost infinite ways it can be adjusted for spin and ball flight with the four interchangeable/replaceable weights, I won't say it is significantly longer, if at all, but I am much more consistent with it and dispersion is far tighter. It is a fairway finder.
  18. 1. Must subscribe to Club Champion's YouTube channel HERE - DONE 2. Search for your local Club Champion location HERE - DONE 3. What Club Champion location would you get fit at? - Plano, TX 4. Have you been fit for clubs before? YES though brand specific 5. What part of your bag could use a fitting? Driver
  19. 1. McKinney, TX (32mi North of Dalla) 2. Handicap - 4.7 GHIN 3. Current hybrid or fairway wood - Big Bertha Hybrid / Epic Flash 5W 4. Why do you want to test the Callaway Epic Super Hybrid? - I have not found a hybrid I can consistently hit well that goes far and lands soft. 5. Do you agree to take high quality photos, write an in-depth review, and be part of an on-going testing thread? Absolutely!
  20. Not only that, but his friend was apparently hitting a ball he found! God only knows what it was subject to before he put it in play.
  21. You can order them weaker by up to 2°. They are a forged iron.
  22. It is over 20% and the rate of growth is faster than any other ball per a Callaway press release: Callaway Golf Announces Highest Golf Ball Market Share In Company History (prnewswire.com)
  23. Nobody is going to overtake Titleist as the #1 ball, but Callaway is currently 2nd in market share, primarily due to the Chrome Soft line-up. It would surprise me for them to discontinue a line that has given them their largest share of the market to date.
  24. I hope not! If you don't have to have the "latest and greatest" then their prices are more than reasonable and their "Heroes" discount pricing is far better than any other OEM offers.
  25. I got my first in 1984 and I now have 10. They have all come on regulation 18 hole courses Six of them have come over the last few years with two each in 2018, 2019 and 2020 on a course that has six par 3s, six par 4s and six par 5s. I think HIOs areas much about luck as they are skill.
