  1. Since COVID, there now appears to be a crush of people trying to register as soon as tournaments open up. The tournament websites have all crashed and created problems as soon as registration opens. The events are full even with the tours attempting to get enough tee times to expand the fields. It’s incredibly frustrating as every event now has a long list of kids who do not get off the wait lists.
  2. For those who have kids transition away from U.S. Kids and Flynn clubs into adult heads, what irons did you go with? What iron heads are the lightest? What shafts did you end up choosing? I am looking for some recommendations to have a couple demo clubs built.
  3. Maybe I’m wrong, but it really sounds like you have an axe to grind with US Kids. Our experience has been that our local tour is managed very poorly. For example, there was a registration fiasco with the site crashing a few days ago when registration went live, there was no summer tour in one of the largest markets in the country and fields are very small compared to other tours. Nonetheless, the tour generally attracts the best players and the tournaments themselves are well run if you can actually register. Further, States, Regionals and Worlds are good events. The issues you have raised seem to run across all tours. There are parents and kids that are problems, but most are fine. Usually the parents / kids that cause issues play across multiple tours and not just US Kids. I certainly my don’t think US Kids promotes the behavior that you are citing any more than any other tour.
  4. What was your experience with this? Was it playable for most of the field or was it so long that it knocked out most of the kids?
  5. I think the level of difficulty to get in is about right. In my opinion, the tournament was really well run this year. The practice round was completed in just over 4 hours and our tournament rounds were all under 4 hours and 30 minutes. We didn’t see any kids shooting huge numbers and certainly didn’t see 6 hour rounds. The major take away was that there are A LOT of really good players. A good number of kids were capable of shooting under par in any given round and a huge number of players could shoot low to mid 70s. As noted, there is a small percentage of kids who have a good chance to win—the big hitters dominate and in some of the older age groups (9-12) the kids at the top of the leaderboard are huge. Nonetheless, the kids can define what a win is for them whether it be first, top 10, top 50 or top 100. For a large number of kids, the course set ups were long and it was difficult to hit the green in regulation, but some of the short hitters have amazing short games and were able to get up and down from almost everywhere. I personally think the large fields add to the fun of the event as it makes it much different from other local and regional tournaments.
  6. Is anyone else having difficulty with the Skytrak website? It is almost non functional since it takes so long to load pages. It is so bad that I cannot renew my software to use on Skytrak. I am beyond frustrated with it and am wondering if anyone else is having issues.
  7. Does anyone have insight as to how large the fields will likely be at Worlds this year? Will any additional players be added other than those already invited?
  8. Does anyone know the deadline for those with priority status of 11 and up to register for this year’s Worlds?
  9. I recommend the stability. I have had it in a couple putters and my putting is noticeably better with it versus other shafts. The LA golf shaft did not have the same impact on my putting.
  10. Does anyone know how the Srixon stock iron lengths compare to Titleist’s standard irons lengths?
  11. I could not agree with this more. It is frustrating to sit on a wait list only to see a repeat offender no show at a tournament your kid wants to play in.
  12. Has anyone found an alternative headcover? Not crazy about the PLD cover.
  13. Three putters for sale here: (1) Mint 34.5” Bettinardi BB-1 Long Neck with Iomic midsize grip. This putter has an LA Golf One 35 shaft (retails for $400). These long necks were made for Club Champion. The neck is welded and the putter is near face balanced. I bought a couple of these to try out. Both of these putters have been lightly used on a putting green. This is absolutely mint. This one includes the stock black Bettinardi head cover. I am selling these because I just prefer the Spider Tour that I have been using for a few years. SOLD (2) Mint 34.75” Bettinardi BB-1 Long Neck with Larkin full cord pistol grip. These long necks were made for Club Champion. The neck is welded and the putter is near face balanced. This putter is almost brand new. It only saw time with a couple sessions on a putting green. I am including a Bettinardi headcover, but it is not the original headcover to the putter. Asking $450 shipped. SOLD (3) Mint 35” Ping PLD Prime Tyne 4. I had some store credit that was about to expire so I used it on this putter. It is brand new and beautiful, but I do not need it. Asking $395 shipped. SOLD. pin 11/18
