  1. Tee it low and use a 3/4 kind of punch shot swing. I fade my driver, but it’s a much straighter flight when I do this. I’ve had a number of rounds where I do this throughout, wind or not, and it surprisingly can go further than my full swing.
  2. Been following Brooks for about 5 holes. He should maybe try practicing.
  3. Really wish a fan would tell JT that all you need to do is mark where the ball is with a tee and move the bag. It’s crazy they need a rules official for the simplest of rulings.
  4. Does anyone know the actual purpose of having DLIII on the broadcast?
  5. If the new XS is anything like the 2014 B330-S I’ll be stocking up. That ball was so good. The past few iterations of the S / XS have spun more than I like, and I just never got a long with the X. Bridgestone claims this new Smart Cover is the biggest step in golf ball design since the solid core ball. That’s a big statement. We’ll see.
  6. I follow Barstool on Twitter and get a kick out of Portnoy. I’m the age group that Barstool mostly identifies with, and I’m not really a fan of ForePlay. The main guy, Riggs, probably has a future in golf media, but the rest of the crew...not so much. I think No Laying Up is killing it, and wouldn’t be surprised if they expanded. Barstool is in your face and thrives off controversy, which is an interesting model for golf media...
  7. I’m stunned that Tiger put him back out there this morning. And that Webb is defending him. None of it makes any sense, and these players joking about it / defending it are so out of touch.
  8. JDay to caddie...”why don’t we just hit a little low one?” Tiger under his breath...”he doesn’t know how to hit one low.” Tiger spitting some fire.
  9. I’m in a bit of a different boat because I thought the Baffler was “okay” but the f7 is by far the easiest 3 wood to elevate off the deck that I’ve played.
  10. > @Stetson said: > Okay deal, but they do Buy 2 Get 1 often enough that I think it is worth the wait At $45/dz buy 2 get 1 that’s essentially the same as buying 1dz at $30. On Bridgestone’s website they have them on sale for $34.99.
  11. So what happened between you asking why you weren’t being compensated and him telling you to leave and never come back?
  12. Some advice though - get a grip removal tool, a giant bottle of Odorless Mineral Spirits, a roll of grip tape, and save yourself a lot of time and money.
  13. I’ve been there. Years ago before I did my own grips I took 3-pw to Golfsmith for new grips. All of my clubs had MCC+4’s on them - I asked them to save all the grips and put on Tour Velvets. I left for an hour and when I came back all they had was my regripped clubs. They had cut off $90 worth of grips. It took 30 minutes and 4 employees to get them to make it right. People have admitting mistakes, especially when admitting it will cost them money.
  14. I like the sound of that. However I think the people who would that is such a small portion.
  15. > @lefty1978 said: > I've played dg s300 for 20 years and I ordered a set of MP-20s in dg 120 s300. I've played 3 rounds with the 120s and I really can't tell much of a difference with my old dg shafts. Same feel and ball flight, just a bit easier to swing, but they don't feel light or any softer or stiffer to me. This is exactly what I’m looking for. Same feel as S300 but lighter. I installed a set of AMT’s in my MP18 SC’s and they almost feel like a completely different shaft. They don’t have that same smooth feel.
  16. I think the original M1/M2 was one of the best things to ever happen to drivers. I cracked my original M2 on the crown, and so did a lot of people, but I chalked it up to figuring out a new design method. They’ve got it figured out now and I’m a big fan.
  17. I loved the SC’s when I lived in Virginia - even more than my 33’s. Ever since I moved to Florida I feel like the turf interaction isn’t the greatest. It’s a very small gripe though. I hit the Srixons when I was testing irons and they just didn’t fit my eye. I have been eying the i210’s recently, which is strange because they’re way different looking than the Mizunos I’ve played over the past 15 years.
  18. 2015 is too old? I played MP33’s until last year. I wasn’t planning on getting new ones but the MP18 SC was just too good.
  19. > @Nard_S said: > Explains his good finish this week. Explains why he was No. 1 for a time too. The excellence of his wedge & putter game masked the mediocrity of the rest. His temperament is not of help imo, he's too intense, works when he's 25% from 25 feet but back fires when things are a sputter. I like him, really don't think much of his swing though. His short game is world class, so he'll win again but doubt he's the dominant force he once was. This is outrageous. His approach game was incredible during his 2015 run.
  20. If you get fitted for a putter, which more people should do, they will fit you for loft as well. Mine is at 4.5 because of a big forward press.
  21. I’m actually really looking forward to watching this. Of course that is mostly because it’s so incredibly outrageous that this is how the FedEx Cup is decided - a net championship. I expect the guys at the bottom half of the board to go and play as aggressive as they can, which at East Lake can mean either fire or flames. It should be interesting to watch if you can embrace how absurd it is. There’s a chance it could quickly just turn into another tournament where some guys can win and some can’t, but I hope it stays weird.
  22. MP33 3-PW S300 Great shape and my favorite clubs of all time. MP32 3-PW S300 In fantastic shape and super fun to hit.
