  • I have been playing like shit this week. But that will happen. I'm great in practice, but when on the course this passed Saturday I fell apart. Still some good shots, but not good overall.

    Grabbed a cheap turf rug from the home depot to practice on, it's really fast, but it's better than what I had. As I grow more familiar with my putter I find myself enjoying putting practice a lot more than before. Thank goodness.

    Hope you get your LW sorted, that is my go-to around the greens, unless I'm in sand.

        Thanks. I haven't even been to the range with it yet so I'm playing the guessing game out on the course. I've been somewhat successful at times with it though. Super glad I got it.

        70 and sunny on Friday. I wouldn't be surprised if winter was over out here.

        • Just scheduled a lesson for the SO in a few weeks with the local LPGA pro. I think spending an hour on her mechanics will really benefit her consistency and I don't think I'm the one to teach her. I can give her tips but she needs to really develop a strong foundation. She whiffs way too much. I think she will enjoy her first 18 hole that we play when we're in Napa next month a lot more with some professional knowledge in the bank. I know my lessons catapulted well beyond my friends, some of which have played for decades.

            You might enjoy this SM. Not cheap, but incredibly well done.

              I used to have access to someone's subscription to something just like this. I read every article and watched every tutorial. Then I went to the range and it completely destroyed everything I had built. LMAO.

              Then I took some lessons and got back on track.

              • This is not that kind of publication, at all. This is more about the stories of golf, not product highlights and swing tips. Extremely well made, High quality photography, limited advertising.

                I would not recommend a golf rag. This is a quarterly release publication that you can proudly set out. Again, I genuinely thing you would like this.

                  Well then I shall take a closer look. Thank you

                  • You are the only person I've sent a referral link. If you wind up going for it, use the link and we'll both get an issue added on for free. They are affiliated with The Surfer's Journal which has been a thing since the early 90's. I've already got two issues in hand, and I'm quite happy with them. I got a free subscription to Golf Magazine when I bought that launch monitor. The cover of that is thinner than the pages of TGJ. I cut my address off the GM when I get them and throw them on the toilet at work.

                      I put it on my birthday wish list for next month. I included the link so you'll probably know before I do if I get it.

                      • I am re-gluing and replacing the ferrules on all of my mizunos. The 3 went flying down the driving range, the 4 has spun about 90* amd the ferrules on most of them are sliding. I have the parts, ill probably get this done in the next 2 weeks. Just need some spare time and a little acetone.

                        I assume someone kept this set in the trunk of a car or something which allowed the epoxy to break down.

                        • I've never heard of such a thing happening.

                          • Different epoxy formulas break down at different temps. Golf specific epoxies typically have a lower temp. This will help ensure that it's POSSIBLE to remove them, esp when paired with graphite shafts. It would be undesirable to have a shafting epoxy with a higher breakdown temp than the resin used to hold the graphite fibers together. All I know is that my two longest irons failed, at the end of the day, it does not matter why.

                            In this endeavor I've also found out that the 4 longest clubs have the same XP105, but in a Regular flex. The 8-PW have xp105 except they are stiff.... They also had longer ferrules and the tips were entirely full of clear epoxy (not black)... which was not fun to remove. Looks like those had already been re-shafted, why, I do not know. I'm not spending $110 for new shafts to make them match at this point, but at least I know why those 3 felt so different.

                            I just want the ferrules and shafts to be secure, for sure. I'm learning a lot of skills I will never use too, since assistant club pro's don't make shit. But at least I don't have to give those poor bastards my money.

                            • You could get a sweet gig at Golf Galaxy if you have any of those down there. Last week I had two inches added to my new lob wedge to match the rest of my set. Felt so awkward at the standard length.
