  1. VH has a NetJets affiliation. I'm guessing that the long haul to HI made him choose commercial. And, since he doesn't fly commercial (much) these days, his kit for his golf bag while traveling is quite different than yours and mine.
  2. There is plenty of science to support the concept of overspeed training in a variety of sports. It's out there if you want to find it. It is the most effective way to increase speed quickly. There are other approaches to increase speed as well. Just swinging your driver (or a broom, for that matter) hard for a couple dozens swings a few times a week will make you faster. There's no question about this. ALL of the top college programs do this kind of speed training. However if you don't want to believe it, that's fine, too. No worries.
  3. I have them both, and I think they do basically the same thing. Several years ago, I gained 14mph of CHS just by hitting balls with drivers of differing weights. The concept is proven. Find the one that gets you hooked to do it consistently over the course of 9 mos (yes 9 mos if you want it to become permanent) and you will hit the ball farther.
  4. If you re comfortable buying a used one and can save money, then I think that's what you should do. Thanks for your question and interest.
  5. Without wanting to sound like Pepperturbo, I have been fortunate enough to play a lot of pretty exclusive clubs. I am pretty sure that there would be no significant repercussions from such an incident. The club might review the incident, but not much would come of it. In my experience, these clubs would MUCH rather have an interloper or two scam their way in than embarrass a legitimate guest of a member. If you are a guest at these places, you get treated like a member, and they bend over backwards to make your experience is as excellent as possible.
  6. Offering brand new, never used, Flightscope Mevo Personal Launch Monitor. This item is still in original plastic and has never been opened. I have two units to sell. The FlightScope Mevo is a 3D Doppler radar-based launch monitor that can be used indoors and outdoors. FlightScope’s free Mevo mobile app allows you to receive real-time performance data during your practice sessions and automatically saves results for a later review. Its combination of features and high review ratings make it one of the best values in personal launch monitors. Both units now SOLD!
  7. Anyone have a problem with their screen going dim while using the MLM outside. After about 15 minutes, by iPhone screen goes so dim I have trouble reading the info on the display. I used to think it was heat related, but it happens in cool weather as well.
  8. Very familiar with both. I like the golf at Merion better, but I like the club at Aronimink better. If I was joining one, it would be Aronimink. Merion is fairly uptight.
  9. Interesting question. I am on a quest to get to scratch, and have been working hard on my swing with a pro. My recommendation would be to start with the fundamentals at address: grip, address posture and ball position. After that, I would focus entirely on position at impact. There are a lot of different ways to deliver the club to the ball, and I would worry more about how the club impacts the ball than how it gets there. Obviously the two are related, but I feel like I've spent too much time working on backswing positions and not enough time on position at impact.
  10. I agree 100%. It is simply a "feel" they may put you in a better position. Or not. Good for some, not for others.
