the first 60 to 70 putts are all over the place in terms of entry point to the cup. surprised none of them missed.

but after that every single putt that i saw was dead center and the exact same

makes me think it wasn't a serious drill but a fun meme (or whatever it's called)

scott - i was thinking about this a little more and it made me wonder if you lost the sensor mid round shouldn't you be able to find it based on the stats it gathered up until the point it was lost? it seems the data output would map things while you still had it and then stop when you lost it. seems like you should be able to find the sensor by tracing the path you walked between your last mapped shot and the next shot that wasn't mapped.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

It did. The place where it was pinging was around the 13th tee box. I went back and couldn't find it anywhere. Not easy finding a small black disk. Hopefully someone finds it.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Sorry for the delay getting some answers and comments to all of this. Have been in Orlando since Saturday for the PGA Show.

I did the full bag yesterday after hearing about a Winter deal for January for $175..Loved it. Never been fitted really for any clubs other than when I first bought my irons 8-9 years ago when I started.

Which is why I went bc my irons were 8-9 years old and I want to get new ones but have some questions about what shaft I'd like as far as stiff graphite or steel, grams, etc.

I went in open minded but kind of leaning on the idea of getting One Length's either Cobras or something else, I tried a buddies and liked them..it just makes sense to me to hit one Length clubs but I wanted to build my own set and maybe go 4,5,6 in one length, then 7,8,9,P in a slightly shorter length. Then just use regular wedges.

Anyway from getting fitted off the bat the whole one length idea was basically thrown out the window. I did hit the Cobra King's very well with a shaft that agreed with me but I hit the Rogue's better and thats what we settled on. I'm not a huge callaway guy but I don't really care I liked hitting them and hit em the purest, straightest, and best spin/trag/distance so I'm not complaining.

I guess I'm here looking for some feedback on my fit. I plan to email or call my fitter with more questions before I purchase anything and I might even go back for another strictly iron fit to dial it all in since I live in NJ and I'm not really in a rush bc snows comin and it's basically simulator sessions until April and I can live with my old set up, I've already bought a $300 Spider putter that I'm gona just give away or sell so I don't want to get my irons wrong by impulse buying.

A little about my swing before I fire away questions:

After lie and loft adjustment my Trackman data is below with a 6i

83.7 av club speed, 119.8 av ball speed, 1.43 smash, -4.1 attack angle, 19.4, 6077 spin rate, 168 carry, 174.2 total.

That data is all with the KBS $-Taper Stiff - BLACK PVD, and the Rogue's are what felt the best and were the most consistent out of about 7-10 swings.

I didn't try the Rogue Pro's which I'm pretty upset about because I didn't know they existed.
I tried the i500s, Taylor Mades, Titlists, Mizunos, and a few others all I didn't really like.. I never tried the Epic's I probably should have as well bc I'm sure their similar.

I currently have the Taylor Made Burner 1.0's so I think any upgrade will turn my 7.4 handicap into at least a consistent 7.4 bc I still have my share of 90s here and there.. My irons are def a big hole in my game my GIR is prob around 30-40% a round.

Questions regarding my fit:

Should I go back for an hour and dial in this KBS $-Taper Stiff shaft with different clubs?

I would like to try to Rogue Pro's because I do want to move the ball around the course and I'm afraid the Rogue's might not allow me to do that.

If I really love the Rogues according to my fit would it be a good idea to maybe get the 4i in a Rogue X, apparently those are super forgiving and long so if I can bomb that thing 230 then I won't need a hybrid. Then I can get the regular Rogues in 5,6,7 and get Rogue Pros in 8,9,P,A.

Another question: Would it be really dumb to make the 4,5,6 in a 37 inch length, and the 7,8,9 in a 36.50, and P,A in 35.50 or something along those lines.

Club Champion prices are so much different from looking online, whats the catch?

I can find the $-Taper shafts for $45 online and club would charge me $90. The PUREing is an additional $30
-I guess they put grips on for me tho so maybe they're honest with the price of $90?

Is PURE'ing really worth it? I mean $30x10 is basically the shaft I'm probably going to buy for my driver/3w that I was fitted for that added 10-15 yards.

Is Club Champion honest?
-Can I get away with shopping for all the items they listed for me cheaper on my own or will they not be the same

Can you buy shafts online from another distributor like Amazon or something and have them PUREed by Club Champion or is PUREing part of the whole building of the shaft process?

I'm not super cheap I love me some golf and I pretty much only spend my money on golf **** so I def want to do the right thing, I'm more focused on getting everything super dialed in but I just want to reassure myself that club champion isn't hosing me for some of the stuff on their list. A complete bag setup is $3400 I was not expecting that esp when I'm keeping my own driver head and 3w head

I think that's all I got, lota rambling but I duno many golf forums and no matter what I do I'm sure I'll be pretty happy with a new set of any clubs
If the fit is right there is no reason to go back for an hour and try the shafts in different clubs. You wouldn't be able to any way since all they have is shafts built for 6-irons.

7.4's have zero reason to try to move the ball around, stay away from the Rogue Pro's.

If you go with a Rogue X 4 hybrid you will then have a huge hole between that and your 5-iron which causes issues.

It would be very dumb to try any sort of single/double length irons. You don't generate enough club head speed to make it work in addition to other issues.

The difference in iron shaft prices are mutlifold, but the price you have been quoted is a little high but reasonable for an installed shaft.

SST PUREing is worth it. Make sure you get the results emailed to you.

Club Champion is honest, it's just that many of their fitters suck.

If you try to cut corners your build is going to suck for various reasons I will get into answering questions below.

$3400 is actually somewhat cheap for a custom built set up clubs. I've seen plenty of bags over $5000 and a handful over $6k.

Only option is the putter since any dealer can order it with the desired length, lie, and loft.

This is horrible advice and also untrue. A proper build includes making sure everything is built to spec, matching swing weights and such is much more difficult than most think.

Furthermore, if you don't order shafts direct from the manufacturer, you won't get the actual shaft. Rather a watered down version made specifically for various club manufacturers.

You don't want your clubs built by the cheapest guy around.

They also jammed you into the most expensive shaft offerings for woods too.

At the end of the day if you have the money and it's not a big deal to you go ahead and order from them. I know that's what I did with my irons.

You can def get the putter from someone else. Just get the specs and bring it to any golf store and they can bend it to the loft and lie you desire.
See above. The KBS shafts Callaway offers for no upcharge cost next to nothing to manufacture because it's a totally different manufacturing process. Why do you think it's a no upcharge shaft?

They did not jam him into the most expensive. Try the Oban Airburst at $750 or various shafts at $500.

See above. It would actually be more expensive to do it this way and the quality of the shaft would suck.

There are a lot of misconceptions involved with custom fitting which hopefully I have addressed. It is expensive in comparison to buying off the rack and not for everybody, but they are awesome assuming you have been properly fitted and the build is good.

Note - when I'm not playing I work in a Golf Digest Top 100 Fitters facility.

No way Tiger isnt a top 4 pick for the Masters and might be the betting favourite (though I realize this isnt entirely accurate for odds).

He is the betting favorite but no way I would touch him right now. Let's see what happens in a few more weeks though.

I was thinking Jordan and DJ. Rory has to win there eventually I'd think

Not a chance in picking Tiger at this point

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

McIlroy is the consensus favorite according to Oddschecker.

I think Rory is as good a pick as any of the others. He will eventually play to his potential there and win by 3+, no reason it won't be this year with his focus on US events.

I'd book as much Spieth at 10-12:1 as I could find.

Rory is in the underperforming part of his career.

Spieth has the yips.

Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book and John Feinstein’s A Good Walk Spoiled are classics.

Dream Golf: The Making of Bandon Dunes. if you've never been, consider looking at the Bandon Dunes: Golf As It Was Meant To Be coffee table book but don't shell out the money for it.

Can you give us some swing analysis of Matthew Wolf ?

Is this hope for old-guys-poor-swings ? Or does this demonstrate the more modern athletic player

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Callaway Demo Day at the club today.

One slight issue was that the demo was set up at one end of the range and the regular range users were on the opposite side. I pinged the other people at 305 so I had to get a little creative with my aim.

Tried the Epic Flash SubZero. Was not impressed. I first started out with my shaft from the Rogue and didn't like it. Tried a couple other shafts and I know for sure I will not be upgrading. After I was done hitting I did find a Graphite Design AD BB7x which is my holy grail shaft if I ever find it for cheap. Threw it in my Rogue and immediately loved it.

What I really wanted to try out was the SubZero 3 wood. Tried it with the Hzrdus Smoke 70 gram shaft and liked it. Then switched to a Tensei White 70 TX shaft and immediately loved that combo. It is def a stout shaft and you can sure feel it when swinging it. my 260y number might get me to switch. My 13.5* Rogue SubZero 3 wood is longer but for gapping purposes I need a 15*. Also need something a little easier to hit off of the fairway.

There is a TaylorMade demo day next Friday and am kinda meh on their drivers so I might skip that one. Our giant demo day at the horse track is the end of the month. I want to try the Ping G410 and the Cobra F9.

It's not a poor swing, it's just an unorthodox backswing. It doesn't matter a ton how you get the club to the top, just look at dozens of PGA Tour players. What matters is how you bring it down and where the club is at impact. His swing is just a stronger, more athletic version of Jim Furyk's move.

There is one thing I don't like about his swing and that's his jumping at impact. It causes inconsistency and injury. Way too many instructors try to teach this. And that's why he'll never be as consistent as Furyk.

If the BB was in a driver at a Callaway demo day, it's not the real thing. Rather a proprietary version made for Callaway with much less carbon content. Same with the other shafts.

I play the BB in my driver(5S) and 3-wood(6S).
