Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Like any thoughts on this from the people who really know the swing. This seems to be the best distillation of what GG teaches from what I can tell.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Anyone bought stuff on 2ndswing?

Their trade-in prices are decent, especially older stuff that's pretty worthless.

But what in the holy hell is with their prices on their used clubs? Their average clubs are like 10% off retail stores and I can find new on eBay cheaper.

i haven't used them before (in fact i've never heard of them before), but based on the random photos when looking for clubs for sale they appear to be some sort of ebay/craigslist aggregator site and probably mark up a small percentage on top to facilitate the purchase.

i suggest sites like callawaygolfpreowed and/or a google search with the specific club(s) you're looking for, including the word 'used'.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I know of them. Started with stores in MN and AZ. It's an actual store and not a compiler. Yeah if the prices are too high then I wouldn't buy from them either.

I've bought clubs in the 2nd Swing B&M store, never really looked at their online pricing/selection since I have a couple stores in my area.

Anyone doing this GolfPass thing Rory is promoting? If so, is there a way to see which courses are offering the free round each month?

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I searched on it a bit. I was looking for what resorts you get the credit at and I didn't see that either. Would be nice to know such things wouldn't it?

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Anyone ever experience shoulder issues related to golf? I've had nagging pain in the back of my trail shoulder for about 6 months which has not improved and has gotten a little worse. Going to a shoulder specialist next week, hoping it is just a strain or inflammation and not a rotator cuff tear.

I do feel like my swing may be contributing to it, it is an arm-driven swing where I tend to not use my body very much (check out Jim Venetos videos on Youtube if you want to see what it looks like). I love the swing and have never had such consistent contact since I switched, but I fear it may be contributing to the shoulder issues. Then again I just turned 50 so it could just be standard old-guy deterioration. Tends to hurt most on the follow through, backswing is fine.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Any chance you use a pull trolley? I had shoulder issues that got worse as I advanced towards 50. I went electric with my 50th birthday cash and the issues went away fairly quickly and I haven't had problems again since.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I do use a push cart but I've been using it for years with no problems. I think it may have more to do with my swing which I changed more recently. Will see what the orthopedist says, hoping he doesn't tell me to shut it down, I'm already going stir crazy with the winter weather.

I used one for years too, but getting to that 50 landmark starts making some of those joints a bit more creaky I found!

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I've thought this as well. I actually just ordered a standing desk because I do use a computer all day and my sitting posture is terrible. Will definitely ask the doctor when I see him tomorrow, thanks.

I'm contemplating getting a standing desk as well, or one that can go back and forth. I don't know how much I would use it though. My sitting posture is **** as well.

Probably oobgolf. I used to use it until it seemed like they limited the features for non-paying users so I gave up. Now I just end up paying for a Golf Canada membership and put scores in there.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Went to "Golf Fest" in town. They have a bunch of manufacturers there and you can try their equipment out. Big names not there were Titleist and TaylorMade. Everyone else was basically there.

I really wanted to try the Cobra F9. I must say that this is a very nice driver. What makes it even more attractive is that it is $449. With most other manufacturers climbing above $500 this is a club that is just as good and you can save $100.

It will not be kicking my Callaway Rogue out of the bag but if I was looking to change I would go in this direction.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Getting the bag stocked for next week's season opening golf trip and I can't decide whether to stick with the S55s or put the Eye2s back in. Haven't taken a swing since the first week of January, could probably use all the forgiveness possible.

Good thing I've got lots of time to ponder.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Thought I'd look up "PM Grind" in the Search but considering this is a poker forum that's probably the worst 2 words to search on here lol.

Anyone have the Callaway PM Grind wedges?

I was fit for Mizuno s18s at club champ, and I also had liked the Clevelands I had hit but I hit all of the wedges pretty well..

Very interested in these PM Grinds as I can order them from a shop I have enough credit for 2 clubs and the shop doesn't deal with Mizuno's but they do have an account with Callaway.. Callaway also has my fitted shaft in stock that I can get on the website with no extra charge so it will def save me some money should I get them..

Callaway wedges are very good, but I detest the look of the PM grind. Of course I feel the same way about the TM Hi Toe wedge. If something looks that bad, no way I'm going to be able to play them

But, if you like the way they look then it's a different matter. Of course I have no way of knowing if that grind suits your turf interaction.

Its stocked with a KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 steel shaft, would putting a KBS $-Taper 120g Shaft on it affect its ability?
