Welcome back! Actually, one of the best instructors/coaches in CO is 5 mins from you. Just about all the best players north of Denver (I don't know that many on the other side) go see Ed Oldham. I go see him 2-3 times a year and he gets me going in the right direction every time.

 

I can also recommend the Sports Stable. I went all winter last year and it was solid. The bays they use are OK but definitely not close to Trackman/GCQuad. The methodology is basically two "laser grids" right in front of the screen that the ball passes through and measurements are taken. Last year I paid $100/mo and got 2h/day for it. That price was worth it for me.

I believe the new ownership has raised rates significantly ($70/hr now from $35 previously) but this is second hand knowledge as I haven't been there since they changed the name. The monitors were only ok as far as tracking stuff. I really only used it for spin, ball speed, and distance so it was ok, but I also did the PGA superstore deal and have gone there almost exclusively over the $40-60/pop at the stable.

To re-state it: Any of you are welcome at my house. There is a $0/hr cost. Just shoot me a message

Thanks Eric.  I’ll be back in Denver tomorrow, hopefully I’ll see the guy who was supposedly playing. Maybe I can find out the story ( which pretty much looks like he couldn’t have played). 
 

And also, welcome!

I don’t who he talked to on the phone who said it was open, or if he just misheard, but he told me today he drove over there and of course…..all closed!

 

Maybe next week.

I went down to Four Mile Ranch today. Greens are a little bumpy but not slow. Fine day with low 60s temps. They were packed sending people off both sides in the morning, but still played in 4:15. I hope they have money for seed in the spring because it looks like they're getting lots of play with everywhere north snowed out.

Happy 2022, everyone! I'll repeat what we used as an ice-breaker from last year...

 

  • What are you looking to improve with your game this year?
  • What gear do plan on buying this year?
  • Do you plan on joining a club or league this year?
  • Any fun golf trips planned?

Hi All,

 

Just landed a job out here; I will be moving to the Denver area once I find a house. In the meantime I’ll be alternating two weeks out here, two weeks back in Savannah. Of course I brought my clubs and have been doing some indoor practice. Playing common ground this afternoon. Looking forward to trying out many of the courses listed in the 2021 thread; still debating on whether I will eventually join a club or hop around.
 

In 2022:

I’m going to continue working on my swing, resolving many issues that I’ve been tackling with my swing coach.

 

As far as gear, I’m probably going to finalize my back-up/walking bag and grab an Anser style putter, a 3W, and backup driver.

 

I am certainly open to joining a league/club this year.

 

I’m finalizing a Pinehurst trip in late February. It will be my 2nd year doing the Titleist package. Planning on playing #2 and #8.

 

Cheers!

-Jim

I went on last night and Ed had a couple of times available this week and into next week.  I tried to book online, but the system had no way to "sign up".  It had a "sign in" and a "forgot password", but no "I'm new here" button anywhere.  I tried for around an hour.

 

Finally, I called the number on the website today, but it rang for a long time with no answer.

 

Looks like the times available are all gone now, and it's into February, but I'll be out of town a lot in Feb.  Just bad timing I guess.

 

How do I get on his schedule?   Maybe I need to call a different time of day and talk to someone?

So I was playing Spyglass Hill with a friend on Friday night and I kept hitting drives that just fell out of the sky. The GCQuad was giving me backspin rates of 600-1200 which makes no sense for me. I generally spin rates on the high end of 2200-2700. I chalked it up to a fluke or the GCQuad was misreading my drives (would be the first time.)

 

I played 18 with a friend yesterday and while warming up I noticed that my driver was doing it again! That made me much more curious so I started looking closely and noticed this 😰:

Is it ironic that my driver shaft broke three weeks ago (TourAD DI 7x) and I found a replacement and got the PING tip on there? Nahhhhhh

 

I decided that it has been several years and I've made a big swing change over the last 18 months so I might as well get a new fitting. I'll be at Club Champion to see what works on Thursday. Hooray!

You are right, when I did there was a sign up link. As far as the calls go, Ed has been out sick for the last few days. I was supposed to see him Thursday last week and he had to cancel it so that might have been why he didn't answer.

 

You can also call the Ranch CC golf shop as I believe they can book for Ed also.

Wow. I'm surprised the sound didn't change dramatically with a crack like that.

About a year ago he actually had a note on his site saying he wasn't taking any new students. That doesn't seem to be there any more but maybe that is still the case.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!

    • Cobra 2022 Plans
      Anyone have info on Cobra's plans for the upcoming release season? I know the blades are new and assume the King Tours are sticking around for another year (or two); maybe a Forged Tec and Utility update along with their SGI stuff & woods?
