BEST GPS REVIEW

I have found that the GOLFPADGPS is the best overall system to use without special TAGS or links. The nice part is that the scorepad and GPS are free.  There are TAGS (grip inserts) that can be uses with the system but are not necessary. They just makes it easier to get more data and help you improve. Here is the link to their website.

Compared to the other systems, I find this the easiest to use. It finds you local course quickly (when you are at the course) and is quick responding to basic info input. You have the benefit of adding your playing partners if you wish and getting them connected. For a premium subscription of $49/year and dependent on your cellphone you can get a fully integrated Shots-Gained analysis from the TAGS available but there is a way of using manual input that gives you the same information. I have discovered the most newer Android phones have NFC sensors as do iPhones which makes the addition $99 for the tags worth the investment. Once sync is acomplished it works well.

Be sure to take the time to practice inputting information onto you cell phone when you are near the course to get the hang of the operation. The instructions on the website are very good but practice makes it much easier when playing a round and not slowing the pace of play for you and your group.

I will have to say that there are a number of other systems on the market which will accomplish the same results so do you research and choose the best system for you. Best of Luck to your and your foursome.

COMMENTARY: Golf Digest and Phil’s secret weapon

In a recent article published by Golf Digest for the U.S. Open 2021:
“The new secret weapon Phil Mickelson has in his bag at Torrey Pines”. (see link below)
It is my belief that they are commenting on the specialty driver (i.e. a 2-wood type) that Phil has used in the past. The history of a 2-wood in golf is worth looking at as well as examining the benefits it would provide. Personally, I used a 2-wood in my early days. The fact is that this type of club was specifically designed for easing the difficulty of hitting a driver off the deck. I have played with many players who can do that but this specialty design makes the error less likely. Note that I don’t say it eliminates the error just lessens the likelihood.

With the considerable advancements in the design of the 3-woods I would think that it would be less likely for the average player to have this specialty club in their bag. Only think that I can see this type club does is to increase the size of a 3-wood head and add some length to the shaft for more speed, which both conditions will add slightly more carry. However, with the bomb and gouge play see today it would be very course specific when put in play. That is where the PGA Professional can show his worth in understanding that modifications to his club supporting the course management decisions he makes on a weekly basis.

Most of us, even avid golfers, don’t necessarily have that precise a game needing this type of specialty club in our bag on a daily basis. However, I would not discourage any player from looking into the ‘mini-driver’ or 2-wood for specific courses. There are plenty of options out there for acquiring this option. Taylormade attacked the problem several years ago but they had limited success and the product has disappeared from their line.

Every player must consider every aspect of his game an the needed equipment to find success so don’t discount the idea. Investigate thoroughly and decide from there you needs.

IS YOUR DRIVER THE CORRECT LENGTH?

There are a significant number of studies out there that have discussed the driver length. Recently my friends at GolfWRX issued an article on that subject. It would be better to discuss if speed (which translates to greater speed) is worth the losing control (which translates to accuracy). By personal experience I have found that searching the correct head and shaft is much better that the speed. I have searched and modified my drivers to a controlable length (personal = 44.5″). That length has also included additional changes in the shaft weight which has also affected the swingweight. For more reading on the subject I would suggest the following GolfWRX article:

IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO CUT DOWN YOUR DRIVER

Finding a good club fitter and repair technician would give you a good start on the potential cost of the upgrade. You can search further information from may of the forum sites around. I can also be contacted relative to how deep you wish to research the topic and I will give send you resources for some of the best reference materials available.

Does your practice swing help you?

The connection between your mind and your body has always been a great point of emphasis in golf. Lately one of my greatest instructors, Dr. T.J. Tomasi, currently at Keiser University in Palm Beach Florida, reminded me that there are some very special connections between the mind and the body. He reminds us that your last and greatest impression on your mind in advance of your next stroke is that Practice Swing. The special point here is that the Practice Swing must be the same full Stroke that you intend to execute on the actual shot to be taken. The cannot be a partial, slow motion swing without the commitment of the shop you are about to take.

HOW DOES YOU DRIVING DISTANCE COMPARE?

Comparative golf information is always being presented which is got some very interesting outcomes. Thanks to the gentlemen from GoflWRX I recently found an article which has some very interesting results. I can only assume that the information is gleaned from a data base which is actually based on fact. My only question is the distribution of the subject golfers based on index. I know for sure, by past experience, that there are golfer across the index range that use the quoted equipment. I would hope that a good statistical representation has been used to back up the information.

If you want to delve deeper into the facts and details of the study and information click on the following link:

This is one of the better articles but I am outside the information listed. Not having used the equipment quoted but watching my playing stats my golfing and physical age just don’t match.
