  1. Getting some quotes and designing a putting green for my backyard. I know this isn’t the typical or ideal shape or place for a putting green. But when you have 14 million kids who take up the entire house and yard… I’ll take what I can get. This corner is kinda my corner I’m given lol. Have my shed. My hitting net, grill etc. thinking of having this area done. From the house/window to the retaining wall is about 18’ x 4’ strip. Then the area in front of my hitting mat and off to the side is another decent chunk. I’m looking for advice on if and where I should add a rough / border? I was told adding a border is good to have something to stop and slow down the ball. But also thought maybe having a thicker rough area maybe in the back by the hitting mat in addition to a small border around the entire thing would give me a little chipping area? Do you think it’s worth adding a rough other than a thin border? Or just have as much putting surface as possible and chip off my hitting mat into the net? I was thinking maybe a small 1-2 foot strip behind my mat I could chip over my mat onto the putting surface maybe? Just looking for some advice and thoughts before I pull the trigger and then regret and say I wish I woulda thought to do this or that.
  2. Basically like brand new. Only used a couple times. Buying Mevo plus and no longer need this. $350 obo shipped. Comes with everything. Only a couple metallic stickers missing
  3. I know a million people probably have a backyard setup. But this is my first time. Mat and net were delivered today. I literally just laid the mat down and net and measured 8-9’ of distance. This corner of my yard is under construction. About to fill that lower area with rock etc. but this is really only place I have for my golf area. my main questions are… 1. What should I build a foundation out of for the mat? It obviously isn’t very sturdy laying directly on grass. I’m thinking just some 2x4s with plywood on top? 2. What’s the best way to build and level the foundation? Assuming I make out of wood… 3. Is 8-9’ from ball to net sufficient? I plan to buy a mevo plus once this is all setup.
  4. 1. Ventus blue 5S driver shaft. Perfect condition. Has new Japan No1 grip. Plays at 45”. Will have the Titleist adapter professionally removed as I need to keep that. So you won’t have an adapter come with the shaft. Otherwise basically new. $260 shipped. SOLD 2. Oban CT115 Stiff shafts. 5-PW. Standard length. My PW measured at 35.5” installed. Brand new Japan No1 grips. ($16 a piece). Brand new labels provided. Not even installed yet. $260 shipped. Obo
  5. thank you. Especially for all the time you invested just to respond. Appreciate it
  6. I used to play AVX. Currently been playing TP5X. But my driver and irons all launch a little high. They spin right about where I’d like, just launch high. What would ideal ball that performs like a high end ball, but launch low
  7. These?? Holy cow expensive
  8. currently using Ventus blue 5S. Thinking of the 1k in x flex. Or at least maybe give it a shot
  9. i honestly don’t know any other stats. Today I wanted to go to the range. Was raining all day. So went into PGA superstore and paid for a yearly membership to use this GCHawk practice bay. Was my first time and didn’t play around with it at all. Guess I’ll need to get more info next time I go in.
  10. I have a TSI3 8° driver. Currently set to 8.75° With a Velocore Blue 5S shaft at 45”. Overall I’m not complaining about my distance and numbers. But I do launch the ball high and often wondered if I could get the ball down on a more piercing trajectory I might even pickup some yards. I’ll be honest I haven’t played around much with lowering my driver loft much lower. But I probably will at least play with that. I just in my mind feel like anything lower than 8.75° is asking for trouble haha. Nothing to base that on. Just “sounds” really low loft to me to go any lower. so my question is. Would changing shafts help? I feel my spin numbers are fine, just my launch numbers are high. Would going to a heavier shaft alone do it? Or a stiffer shaft? Or maybe a different profile like Velocore black? Or maybe something different all together like Tensei white 1k or LA Golf Trono or something else? btw, I play Tp5x balls if that’s makes a difference heres a couple pics from me at pga superstore today showing some of my numbers. Most my swings were In this same ballpark. But ignore the averages. I was hitting more than just driver and not changing it in the system.
  11. do you not add about an inch once installed? So they are only about half inch short?
  12. Looking at buying some iron shafts second hand. I’m a standard length. But I’m thinking these things may be short? What is the standard length of iron shafts before being installed into a club? And if they are short. Anyone have any luck with those steel shaft extensions that go in on the butt end side under the grips? Lengths: 4 iron: 37.0" 5 iron: 36.5" 6 iron: 36.0" 7 iron: 35.5" 8 iron: 35.0" 9 iron: 34.5" PW: 34.0"
  13. it was my fault not theirs. But really not even my fault. I didn’t do anything wrong. It just broke. And trust me. I’m furious too. Just bought this and mizuno stz head. Wasn’t cheap.
