  1. Does anyone know where I can find some plastic golf tees that are the natural color of wood? I found an abandoned one at the range and I've never seen one like it. Want to buy a 100 pack. Looked all over on the internet and can't find anything. I can find everything on the color spectrum (white, red, yellow, pink, white/blue, white/yellow, etc) but can't find that golden wood color. I normally use the the Pride Professional 2 3/4" tees that are all white. Before someone recommends that I "just use a wood tee" or "wood tees are cheaper and more classic" ... yes, I get
  2. Thanks for the well thought out responses. This is way more complicated than I thought... I guess I am just interested to know some generalities. Everyone talks about shaft weight and how just 10-20 grams can be a world of difference. I've hit the clubs side by side and agree, one is SIGNIFICANTLY heavier than the other while swinging. But if you handed me a 400g weight and a 420g weight I probably wouldn't be able to tell any difference.
  3. I understand the perceived weight will be changing throughout the swing. I’m asking what the force/weight of a club would be at its max. So like if a golfer can only deadlift 100 pounds, can we reasonably assume he’s limited to swinging the club to a max speed of only 90mph or something like that?
  4. Wondering if anyone knows of any formulas or equations for calculating how heavy a club becomes from the force of swinging. Say my drivers total weight is 333 grams and I swing it at 100 MPH... when I am applying the most force during the swing, does the amount of resistance equal to weighing about 50 pounds? 100 pounds? If I swing at 110 mph is it now equal to 105 pounds?
  5. "Flange" thats the word I was looking for. Yes that's what makes the Pitch Pro work really well and separates it from just using a tee.
  6. Really love the pitch pro single prong tools. At first I thought it was stupid using the one prong, "why not just use a tee?" but after I got a free plastic one and tried it out, it does a great job and I like the shield part that helps push the ground in. I don't know, it just works really well on the greens I typically play. Anyways, Does anyone know where I can find a metal version of the Pitch Pro Golf tool? The below image was pulled from a blog post on their site from 2011, but can't actually find anywhere to purchase it on their site or anywhere else. I've tried contacting them but hav
  7. Specs below for Mizuno JPX 900 forged PW Loft - 45 lie - 1 up length - standard Shaft - PX LZ 5.5 straight in. Goes about 100 yards. The harder I hit it, the higher it goes. half swing or knockdown shot goes about 100 yards. All out swing goes 100 yards. Spin and flight can change but ball flight is pretty high either way. Distance gapping below seems all in line except for the PW 8i 35* - 145yds 9i 40* - 135yds P 45* - 100yds G 51* - 95yds This is nothing new. I used to have the jpx900 HM irons and that PW also only went about 100 yards. Same weird distance gapping issue. I am not co
  8. > @iteachgolf said: > The ball is always > @eddie_ebo said: > > @SNIPERBBB I get what you're saying, that perhaps sub 90 swings are generally found in much older people. Some studies suggest the 50th percentile of 50yo men swing around 90mph so I thought I'd use the median to not sound extreme! > > > > **I'm intrigued by the analysis of @iteachgolf and how he derived 126 and would like to learn more** > > > > Because if @Matadorb32 had an optimised ball speed of 144 and an actual swing of 96 then it answers @Lincoln_Arcadia question of how OP can
  9. Just got back from my lesson at the same place. Turns out, i was WAY over the top and had a good bit of reverse spine tilt coming into impact, and then a compensating flippy impact. Made some great changes and gave me some excellent drills. During the lesson we didn't focus much on driver but at the end I was able to hit a few. Only three shots but looks really promising. I know clubhead speed isn't impressive but this gives me some hope! Swinging slow until I can ingrain the changes then I'll start letting them rip. This driver was the Cobra F8+ with the stock 2kxv blue shaft
  10. Didn't intentionally leave the ball speed off. It was average 135.2 MPH. @iteachgolf @eddie_ebo

If Trackman reads the ball speed.. with regards to the 1.52 smash for a 4iron. this means the data is based on 140.2 mph of ball speed, and 1.43 actual smash the calculated swing speed should b 98mph NOT 92.3mph?
  13. No video of this swing, but I will get some this weekend. One thing I was curious about... This is a Cobra F8+ head. If I'm adding that much dynamic loft to it, could the milled face be adding even more spin?
