  1. I'd be down. I can't play Saturday, but likely can on Sunday.
  2. 1. City, State? Denver, CO 2. Handicap? 7.8 3. How would the Apex Utility Wood fit into your bag? Would replace my current hybrid to bridge between my 4w and 4i 4. Why do you want to test the Callaway Apex Utility Wood? I really like the idea of consistent spin, reduced draw bias, and tighter dispersion. My current hybrid can get me in trouble with over-drawing. The stated steeper decent angle to help the ball stop quicker is a great advantage for approach shots on par 5s. This would also be great off of the tee for me for shorter holes 5. Do you agree to take high quality photos, write an in-depth review, and be part of an on-going testing thread? Definitely
  3. 1. City, State? Denver, CO 2. Handicap? 7.8 3. What is your current putter? Edel E-2 4. Have you ever used a L.A.B. Golf putter? No 5. Why do you want to review the MEAZZ.1 putter? Always been interested in L.A.B. putters and like that shape. I've used the Odyssey #7 and really liked it, so I'm interested to see how this stacks up against it. I also place a lot of importance on feel, on top of adjustability, so this appears to tick all of the boxes. 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Yes
  4. If you host again, I'd love to join. It doesn't get much better than golf and beer! Pretty awesome you picked up a GCQuad. I'd really like to get the GC3, but that's not in the cards this year. Great post, and welcome! I'm a bit jealous of some of the courses you've played! My friends kid was looping at CGC during the summer and was supposed to get me on last year, but that never happened
  5. 1. Handicap? 8.1 2. Current hybrid? Cobra King OS 3. What is important to you in a hybrid? Consistent distance, predictable ball flight, forgiveness 4. Why do you want to review the Cobra KING Tec Hybrid? I'd love to see how the adjustments impact ball flight, distance and accuracy. 5. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Absolutely
  6. I play it fairly regularly, though typically just the front 9. I like the course with some challenging holes. They take pretty good care of it overall. The front and back are quite different, which is fun. I really like the back - elevation changes and some risk/reward opportunities. Just a heads up, the tips play considerably further back than the blues. On another note, my buddy backed out today at The Links at HR for 411pm if anyone is interested. Ian? Lawrence, I assume you all are doing your typical thing...
  7. 1. City, State? Denver, CO 2. Handicap? 7.7 3. Current hybrid or fairway wood? Cobra King OS hybrid and F8 Fairway Wood 4. Why do you want to test the Callaway Epic Super Hybrid? Looking for a reliable, stable club to fill a gap in my bag, which sounds like the technology built into this club can deliver 5. Do you agree to take high quality photos, write an in-depth review, and be part of an on-going testing thread? Definitely
  8. @pseudoswede just takes too much time on the course 3-putting for his 5.5hr rounds
  9. That's blazing fast out there for a weekend . It's too bad the course isn't in great shape, though I do like fast greens. GVR really thinks too highly for their course. I used to play there regularly and was part of their men's club, but stopped going there as they continually jacked their rates up. I'm not even sure the course is worth $75 let alone $100+ they ask during the summer. Getting tee times will still be tough out here unless you join a private club. Country Clubs aren't as prevalent as they are out east, but we still have some good ones. Some are stupid expensive like Glenmoor, Castle Pines, and Cherry Hills, but there are some more affordable ones like Meridian (just golf) and Valley, which I really like. Not sure if this is still the case, but it used to be ridiculous to get a tee time at Black Bear and Blackstone - they're part of Club Corp and have too many members that fight for tee times. One of our members here used to belong there, and I think he said they open up tee times a week in advance at 5am and the prime spots fill up in minutes. There are great public courses all around the Denver metro area (I can probably rattle off 15-20 great courses all around the city), though I prefer the south side of town in general. Those that live on the north side will say they prefer the north lol. If you want a new(er) home, you'll likely end up in either SE Aurora or the north of the city. I got excited about this... Then Dancin crushed my dreams
  10. One thing I forgot to mention is its durability. I absolutely drilled a tree off of the tee last week and there wasn't even a scuff. I was shocked.
  11. This is a good assessment. I wasn't expecting it to be as firm as it was, but I also thought that was because I currently play an AVX. I traded a sleeve of the left dash with my buddy, and after playing 9 with them, I realized how firm it really is.
  12. I really like the left dot as well. I'm currently coming from an AVX, so this definitely makes up for its shortcomings. Longer off the tee, more spin on approach shots and around the green, and a better feel (for me). I really hope Titleist goes to production with this. That being said, if you like the ball, please submit your feedback to Titleist to provide justification for them to move forward with it.
