  1. I got my T100s 2 weeks ago ..... AMT White s400 =1/2" with midsize grips. Wait time was exactly 4 weeks. Lefty BTW
  2. Proud for you Sammy. Loved you then love you now. GJ taught me knuckle fade driver .... it's all I hit now.
  3. My friend's custom one off Odyssey with tour only face ......... oh and he's putting it
  4. This is the revision to the DMD rule for 2016 ..... language seems easier to understand here vs other stuff written by USGA https://www.usga.org/content/dam/usga/pdf/Equipment/notice-to-manufacturers-2016-guidance-dmds.pdf
  5. Turning off slope was good enough in 2020 in state and USGA Event in our state https://www.usga.org/content/dam/usga/pdf/2019/rules/2019_UPDATE_USGA_DMD_FINAL.pdf This was handed out
  6. Subscribed. Had debate with another dad about "path to tour" this may provide some insight.
  7. Awww memories. That was mine in 2004. Wasn't my preferred style but man it felt solid. Soft and muted but solid feedback ... makes no sense but that's what I remember. GLWS
  8. Eccos lasted 3 years are were very comfortable for you ? Come on
  9. Glib comment but he regrets and apologized .... he's a funny guy who just tried to come off quick but screwed up. It likely comes from a place of frustration since he's from a state that did a horrible job with "flattening the curve" efforts. He's said as much. And this lack of effort continues today. I was just there and I was appalled.
  10. Nope WD is WD .... they don't give you money in tournament after WD, hole in one doesn't count unless full round (9/18) with attest etc .... he'll scream but he'll learn.
  11. Vast majority of AJGA events are 6000 -6800 ... did find a hand full 6900-7200. Play with 3 kids in top 20 in Rolex for last couple years ... one now in college, other played Junior Presidents Cup and will make Junior Ryder Cup, third turned pro. I can compare the 3 to each other. It's a three way coin toss day to day. So what does that mean .... not much until the kid who turned pro moved to FL and often plays with Lexi and a few other LPGA card carriers. Same tees they get the best of him. Wins some, loses most. That's all I got
  12. They cancelled for you .... put your refund in the bank
  13. You are, more often than not, low heel. M5 doesn't like low heel. Most drivers don't. Grip change still settling in ? Now changes shaft timing needs ? No idea. I know a fitter who knows my swing (my misses) and he can really play ... he takes out variables with tweaks and talks me off the ledge when I can't get out of my own way. I think your spin drops when you do hit it higher on the face - you do hit up quite a bit and that drop is a bit too much (sub 2000)
  14. GCQuad measures club head speed differently and at different point in swing vs Trackman. GCQ may err on the side of giving you an extra mph whereas TM tends to read a hair slower. So same swing you'll get a slightly lower smash factor on GCQ and a little higher smash on TM. Optimal smash on TM 1.50 and GCQ closer to 1.45. I simplified the numbers bc I don't know the specific testing truth, but I'm close. That being said .... you didn't middle that shot ... a few mm heel side and low .... turns your 1.45 into 1.43 right quick. Oh and BTW - you didn't really carry that shot 304 yards with 166 ballspeed. GCQ has a woody for sub 2000 spin rates. Editorial: both systems are not without minor flaws like I mentioned but if indoors stick with GCQ ... TM can't read sidespin and gives it an educated guess based on club delivery info and initial ball readings. If you have 30 yards of flight radar based LM's are best in the biz.
  15. I'm required to get the flu shot every year (would get it regardless). About 5 years ago they missed the mark on guessing US strains and I come down with the flu. Felt funky at 3:00 on a Friday ... by 3:30 I walked out of the hospital in full on rigors (I actually laughed bc I just couldn't stop shaking). Nurses in parking garage tried to help me but I just drove home. I'm not feeling "right" until Wed .... felt OK at work Thurs but hit a wall Friday by noon ... slept it off that weekend. 9 days of hell. Zero correlation with flu shot and GBS or any demyelinating disorder since 1976/1977 and I'm sorry that the previous poster had to endure the death of the young boy, but Flu shot wasn't the culprit. If half of the people who have any autoimmune disorder receive the flu shot its as correlative as saying the Egg McMuffin I ate last month caused this illness I now am dealing with. Can there be side effects from the flu shot ? Yep but they don't kill you. The flu does and the incidence of flu between those vaccinated and those not vaccinated is significant. More than 10,000 have died in the US alone already this flu season. The Flu sucks.
  16. Tested every new driver (multiple shafts) on market last Monday against my Flash SZ. The only one as good was the Mavrik SZ (with my shaft in it) felt/sounded better but numbers were identical. Nothing kicked OG Epic out of my bag until Flash SZ (2.5 years). My Flash has heavier weights to get headweight up a bit so with heavier weights in the Mav maybe I could squeeze a mph out of it but not worth it IMO. On a side note SIM and SIM Max launched too high with low spin ... tweaking to get launch down made spin fall to 1400 or so ..... no bueno for controlling curvature at all. Your mileage may vary.
  17. mizuno-golf-move-tech-full-zip-jacket-52ge9502-deep-navy.html I have it and about 10 other pullovers and shirts from Mizuno. Quite warm and you can swing pretty freely in it. I don't play or practice in it .... if it's that cold I'm in heated bay, on the sim or napping in front of the fire. Fit is as expected. Tons of Mizuno apparel available in US .... internet, pro shops and some big box.
  18. Dude you don't even have your tracking number yet ! You calling legendary status ? I'm gonna become a 48 year old rapper .... the arenas will sell out, records will go gold ... I just need to hire you as my hype man. You make me look sane.
  19. Callaway purchased Top-Flite in late 90's. Top-Flite Magna was a ball line back then. Slightly larger which yields less sidespin. When Callaway sold Top-Flite to Dicks they kept many patents and trademarked names for themselves. This is obviously one of them.
  20. Right handed but swing a club, bat, stick or ax lefty
  21. I had chrome peeling on 714 AP2s (2 clubs).... Titleist replaced whole set, custom shafts, specs no questions asked. Same model was available. Peeling was worse and more obvious than your finish wear to be fair.
  22. > @"Schley " said: > > @raynorfan1 said: > > Why do they insist on pinning #9 on the front part of the green? Drives me bananas. > > There is evidence that Raynor intended for the front portion to be green and is maintained as such, however where they pin the green is up to the club. While not traditional in a Biarritz to even have putting surface on the front portion, I enjoy the variety myself. Not often but maybe once a week or so can do no harm, although not a traditional pin for a Biarritz green. They actually have two cups cut everyday .... one front one back. You just tell group in front of you to replace pin to back location if you want. It's a great time to ask what course record is as well :smile: For those who don't know ... the halfway house is on 9 tee so you almost always have opportunity to talk to group ahead.
