  1. That's interesting. Pin placement is one thing I haven't seen a problem with. My problem is seeing the club I'm planning to swing on the watch, and still not finding that stroke on the console later.
  2. With USGA and the R&A being concerned about distance, and all the talk about how the major OEM's have a stake that is hard to take into account, wouldn't it be possible to just put a limit on how few degrees of loft that a driver can have on the PGA Tour? Pick a number like perhaps 9*, and say that's the minimum loft on a driver on PGA Tour, and a lot of the distance is taken off the table, OEM's can still compete on technology, balls can still differentiate from each other, etc.
  3. I played my first round with the latest firmware update today. I don't know that it was appreciably faster in connecting, nor did I experience any other improvements. It still defaulted to driver when I hit 5 iron off a tee that gives me fits because it's a narrow chute. It assumed driver on a tee, when reviewing in the web portal, when I know I saw the watch recognize I was using 3W. It still missed a few shots completely. Nothing has really changed on this firmware update for me except it seems to record the distances more accurately when it does record the shots properly.
  4. Are you saying that 2.2.76 is faulty? I haven't used it since updating the firmware to this version, and haven't heard of any problems with it.
  5. I'm still using my Garmin G6 for this very reason (I know how far I hit a slice from having seen enough of them). Since it sits on my cart, it's not really interfering with using the V3, and since I use it to manually enter my score, it gives me a comparison to what V3 says I shot.
  6. I got the same deal, plus I had a reward coming from DSG, so I ended up paying like $165 total. I think the size is great. I have small wrists, and am using the third hole from the watch to latch the band. Battery life has not been an issue at all, but I play late in the day, when few are out on the course, and I can finish 18 in about 3-1/2 hours. The face is easy to read (not always true with my Garmin G6). I havent' had an issue with putts not being recorded, but the distances are sometimes off, even though I register total putts made right at the pin. The big problem I have is s
  7. I like the argument that Costco making what looks like a high end putter will exert some downward pressure on prices across the board, but I wouldn't expect too much, as the bespoke and big OEM's still have engineering costs to try to recoup, Costco does not. Personally, I don't get what the fascination with trying new putters is with low handicap golfers. My index is in the high 20's. If the rest of my game was as "on par" as my putting, my average score would be a 68. Putting is the only easy part of this difficult game we're all obsessed with. I'll stick with my ($10 on eBay) Model 400 un
  8. I think that's what I experienced at Sudden Valley Golf Club on Saturday. The ball only fell about 1/2" when it went into the "hole". I was able to knock it back out of the hole with my putter, but I could just as easily have picked it up with 2 fingers. I liked this better than the idea of raising the cup above the hole, because lip outs are still possible, so you still have to have the right speed.
  9. That's an issue I struggle with every winter, and this year I've tried to pay particular attention. It seems like the percentage distance loss on the short irons/wedges is a lot smaller than on the mid irons and woods.
  10. My Gap Wedge is about 90 yards and my Pitching Wedge 115, so I'd grip down an inch on the PW.
  11. Just came back from playing here in the Pacific NW, and it reminds me of my obsession - the ground being clear all around my feet. Leaves, little tiny twigs, etc. all have to be gone. Good or bad footing makes all the difference on whether I can hit a decent shot or not. When it's soggy, I will adjust the width of my stance a lot if needed to make sure my feet are properly planted.
  12. If the increased spin translates into holding more greens, I'd go with that. One can always take an additional club, then choke down by an inch, to get the yardage, unless as someone said already, it creates a large gap between your longest iron and your hybrid/woods. And less wear and tear on the body generally means playing more, or having more energy left after playing.
  13. So if it's a contest between T400 and G710, the Pings win hands down in my book, at least from a looks perspective. Of course, I'd get fitted before shelling out actual cash. I'm really hoping that something forged is in my future.
