My brief blade experience

Why would you want to know or care about spin rate ? You who seem to know everything about everything ? I am agog. I am aghast. Is Marius in love at last ?) (<--- never mind - obscure reference :classic_laugh:)

 

So you'd never have a reason to know how far it flew and how far it ran out ? You'd know that you optimized your launch conditions ? 

 

Glad you've got it all covered. Good for you.  :classic_wink:

 

 

Not long ago there were no launch monitors or players talking about spin rates. Yet, for a hundred years players were able to strike great shots and shoot low scores.

People forget ..... once upon a time , in a galaxy far , far away..........   everyone played a blade.  And everyone smiled . 

This is a true story, i was at an LM once and they had the trackman set up on the right side of the mats. I am a lefty however so the guy had to move it over to the left side of the mat, and it was pl

I think an annual hour or 90 minutes on trackman to nail down your carry yardages and gapping is time and money well spent (especially since I just went thru this)

 

Even tour player +8 handicaps learn they have two clubs that are too close in carry yardage .. or too far from these these sessions

 

Watched a 10 cap buddy do his fitting two days ago and his 4h and 5i were 3 yards apart .... just sayin'

In the same vane, I had a heated debate on Twitter with a journalist from one of the UK golf mags who more or less said that anyone who went on a golf course without a GPS or range-finder was an idiot. I used the same argument and he went back into his box 👍

So, if I understand you correctly, a golfer can learn nothing useful about his or her swing from a range session or a launch-monitor enabled range bay session?

 

 

Range practice sessions are essential. Traditionally the best players listen to impact sound-feel, watch the flight of the ball, pay attention to their divots etc...

Because they didn't know any better. Good Lord man, wake up and smell the new millenium. You're 20 years late.

 

And now players hit a lot MORE great shots and shoot way MORE lower scores,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Yeah ?

 

Well 100 years ago I walked to school 20 miles each way in the freezing weather.

 

Then Mom got me a horse. Still got cold but for much less time.

 

Then Dad bought a car,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I have done a session (on I want to say ‘Vector’ monitor but I can’t remember) a while ago because I could tell that my 15* 3-wood and 17* 2-hybrid were going a similar distance. The 3-wood was carrying 10 yards further but after run was taken into account there was about 2 yards difference. Really low penetrating flight with the 2-hybrid which is great for driving on links courses in the wind. Pro got me a strong 13* 3-wood to get the gaps sorted so  trackman does have its uses...I just wouldn’t build a bag around its results.

A tenth of a second after I’ve made impact, with an iron, I know within 5 yards where the ball is going to land, both length and direction...unless I’ve topped it (there are too many variables with the running ball ;-).

 

I’ve never used trackman to understand my distances and I’m usually within 5 yards when my buddy asks me for a distance to check against his GPS...I’m not joking and I’m going off the 150 yard markers most of the time. If a shot looks like a 6-iron when I walk up to it, I always take the 6-iron, even if my buddy says that it’s only 150 yards (I don’t ask him but sometimes he can’t resist). If I take the 7-iron I’ll feel that I need to step on it a bit and typically mishit it. Smooth 6-iron, I’m more likely to be within my target zone.  I’ve played in windy conditions where knowing how far you hit a particular club is irrelevant...you have to use feel.

 

Don’t be wedded to trackman distances...there are too many variables coming into play to rely on them.

You were fine up until saying this. Haha That is just an absurd thing to claim, 1/10th of a second come on man. 
 

I don’t have a a Trackman but theres a reason when you watch pros warmup there’s a trackman behind almost every single one of them, they are understanding how far the ball is traveling on that day. They wouldn’t use it if it wasn’t giving them something they couldn’t already see or feel.

I am all for technological improvements. The current clubs, balls, course maintenance, riding carts and push carts etc... are all significantly better than they once were.

But not everything new is better. It's probably about 50/50 whether launch monitors have helped or harmed players games.  Half the players , yes, half the players, no.

Where in the world are you getting this from?  50/50 ?  Is this from the same place that lets you know your spin rate just after impact?

 

Man, imagine thinking you know this much about golf that you know the percentage of improvement that Trackman has provided off the top of your head.

 

You are either the smartest golfer I've ever interacted with or you have no idea what you're talking about.

Where does the 50/50 stat come from? Unless it’s inaccurate I’m not sure how data is going to harm somebody.

He has no idea what he is talking about.  In this instance, he would maybe come up with Luke Donald as an example of chasing numbers hurt him (yet surprisingly enough, couldn't even answer the question with a name when directly asked for clarification), but the reality is he was basically a non issue because of the changes to the game (bigger, faster, stronger), and HAD to change to continue to be competitive.  

 

The 50/50 number is him trying, as usual, to sound like an informed person, when his arguments are easier to pick apart than wet noodles.

 

We have been in the LM era for a little while now and you are seeing the difference in more youth playing at extremely high levels faster than before.  Part of this is that more actual athletes are taking up golf rather than other sports like in the past, but the wealth of info at their fingertips has fast forwarded things immensely.

you think half of the tour has made harmful swing changes chasing numbers?! You said 50/50...

 

Edit just read post above. Got it. Of course, before trackman, nobody ever made harmful swing changes.

I can tell by the strike I’ve had where the ball is going before I’m halfway through my follow through...I’m sure most players can unless they have fists of ham.

 

If you’re a pro and dialling in a wedge on the range before going out for a round, trackman is a great tool, I’m not disputing it. But hacks building their whole golfing experience around trackman on the range is not what golf is about...you’ve got to get out there and play clubs in the wild to understand what performance you’re going to get. My home course doesn’t have a flat lie anywhere except on the tee...work at the range is ok for grooving the swing, but doesn’t add much to ball-striking. 

 

Looking at the spin numbers is largely irrelevant once you’re playing clubs that you’re comfortable with and give you good gapping.

For reasons unbeknownst to myself, I have been obsessed with playing blades lately. So I took a trip to my local range today and picked out an old Lynx USA 7 iron blade from the rental rack (I don't own a blade and had never hit one previously). While I did see a reduction in distance (more of a result of EXTREMELY crappy range balls and a 50 degree day), I couldn't believe how much more consistent my face contact was, compared with my Ping Zing's I currently use. And even on the few mishits, they weren't punished nearly as bad as everyone and their mother said they would be, and I knew exactly what had happened and could adjust accordingly.

 

Anyone have a similar experience? Is this just a honeymoon phase? Or is the golfing elite trying to preserve the sanctity of blade irons?

I’m sure - they are cast and have a shaft over hosel design.

I remember when they came out.

Quite expensive - and State of the Art Design - allowed redistribution of weight from the hosel to the clubhead.

Nice feeling but definitely Not a Blade.

What he’s saying is that guys didnt have the info to experiment with before.   Just because i can tell you shot for shot which spins more or less , doesn’t mean I can tell you how i got there. Having a lot of access t trackman myself , I can attest that it makes it easy to experiment swing for swing to see what effects what.   It’s instant feedback on a grip , or path change etc. 

 

that being said. I don’t use it much.  I don’t care for it.  It’s caused several harmful rabbit holes for me , and in my opinion works against my natural tendency to feel my way around.  By that I mean it causes my ocd brain to want to perfect numbers etc. chase max carries with each club etc.  which requires perfect strikes. Not perfect as in solid - middle etc. but perfect as in aoa -path - etc. launch conditions.  I can take a 7 iron and vary carry 20 yards depending on spin - aoa and shape.  In my opinion that’s opposite thinking to any truly great iron player. You see a shot and you hit it. Window , shape and spin.  You get to know what club will do that.  Control is the name of the game.  Not max carry.  You aren’t out there trying to recreate the 1 in 20 perfect launch characteristics.

Reading comprehension, please.

If you look again you will find that I wrote that a player should know from impact sound-feel and watching the ball fly whether he struck the shot solid. Regarding spin rate, I questioned why any player would want to know that number. Again, a player can and should learn from watching his shots; it's an integral part of the game.

To be fair I’ve just started using a GPS app on my watch and for me the jury is still out. I typically pick the club for the shot as I’m walking to  the ball...knowing the exact yardage is just a complication and plays with my head lol.

That is an excellent example of how using launch monitors can be harmful to one's game. And your comments above are from a playing perspective.

When one uses a launch monitor to fit a person for clubs more harmful factors emerge. For example, a fitting session including multiple consecutive swings with one club , from a flat level lie, is so completely different from playing a golf course that it's likely counter productive to finding the most appropriate club design/specifications. As always, there is no substitute for playing shots during a round of golf and learning from that.
