@  HossOnMoss : (27 April 2015 - 04:25 PM) He kept the nerves in check pretty well all week, but we just had a couple of mental mistakes on the starting nine (back side) on sunday. Regardless of the scores (which I still can't comprehend), that course wasn't playing that easy last week. I fully expected a -2 cut line and never even considered -5 as possibility for the cut. (Insert cliche here) These guys are good!
@  Qwagmire : (26 April 2015 - 11:51 PM) :thumbsup: :4: so glad he could right the ship after a shaky start on round 4. Nerves? I would have been shaking like a dog shitting peach seeds
@  HossOnMoss : (26 April 2015 - 07:48 PM) Thanks guys! We had an awesome week. It's not often that a monday qualifier actually makes the cut on the PGA Tour. So, a T-36 finish is pretty good all things considered. Hopefully just the start of more great things to come for a really nice and talented guy.
@  Qwagmire : (25 April 2015 - 09:41 PM) Keep it going Hoss!
@  J13 : (24 April 2015 - 08:56 PM) Hoss keep reading those greens at the Zurich!!!!! Mike is playing great man!!!!
@  TWshoot67 : (16 April 2015 - 11:01 AM) J thats cool wish I could get to one of those PGA shows soon, must be ho heaven....
@  J13 : (15 April 2015 - 07:22 PM) I didnt bother the counter balance line Converge caught my eye at the PGA Merch Show
@  TWshoot67 : (15 April 2015 - 02:14 PM) Did anyone try and purchase the Nike 006? No luck here, I think I needed to be a robot
@  J13 : (14 April 2015 - 10:49 AM) Speith is a stud and seems like an overall great ambassador for the game. I'm a fan
@  HossOnMoss : (13 April 2015 - 09:26 AM) It was a great week to watch. Speith was as impressive as ever and it was in my opinion equally impressive to see how much Tiger was able to turn his game around in time for Augusta. Pretty remarkable feats by both players. Should be a great summer of golf ahead of us!
@  HossOnMoss : (12 April 2015 - 08:53 PM) That was an awesome display of golf this week by Speith. I don't know how anyone could not like watching that guy play golf.
@  BingHogan : (11 April 2015 - 11:34 PM) I think he'll continue to mow em' down at Augusta. Seems like his destiny. Anyone who goes to a Jesuit High School is OK in my book!
@  TheMechanic : (11 April 2015 - 12:19 PM) who's gonna make a move today @ Augusta
@  BingHogan : (11 April 2015 - 08:08 AM) Tiger WHO!?
@  TheMechanic : (10 April 2015 - 12:13 PM) Spieth tearing it up today again....

@  TWshoot67 : (02 April 2015 - 05:12 PM) J13 I hope he played extremely well...lol
@  rfdegen : (02 April 2015 - 09:38 AM) Played the first nine of the season last eve. Chasing the geese off the course. Wife not happy stepping in their $h!t. Great to get out on a 60* spring Wisconsin day.
@  J13 : (01 April 2015 - 01:20 PM) Well he was spotted there yesterday so I have to think that was a round to see if the game is ready. Hope he played well.
@  TWshoot67 : (01 April 2015 - 10:26 AM) I agree I can't see him missing the Masters.....
@  HossOnMoss : (01 April 2015 - 10:26 AM) I'll be absolutely shocked if he doesn't play the Masters. I never had a doubt that he would return for Augusta. So, I'll be REALLY surprised if he doesn't play.
@  BingHogan : (01 April 2015 - 08:08 AM) He's gotta play next week. Can't believe he would pass on Augusta...
@  J13 : (31 March 2015 - 07:58 AM) Rumor has it Tiger is making a big announcement in the next 24 hours
@  rfdegen : (30 March 2015 - 01:09 PM) Golf Course opens tomorrow! Also looking forward to UW vs Kentucky on Saturday! Go Badgers!

@  BingHogan : (15 February 2015 - 04:07 PM) Anyone have an idea what shafts these are: DGISL200? Just found these in the garage and remember buying them about 10+ years ago. Thanks!
@  Laars : (04 February 2015 - 10:09 AM) Carroll was tricked into doing what he did. Pats don't call a time out, putting it all on Hawks either scoring or losing. Now you have no time, only 30 seconds. If Carroll does a running play first, and doesn't get in, he then MUST throw twice in order to win because he has no time left. Giving the advantage to NE. Go with the pass play first, then run twice. He picked the smarter plays, but in reality, he should give Lynch a shot, and if he doesn't get in, you lose. He looked at having 3 chances better then one. Belichick counted on Carroll doing that, going with 3 chances instead of one chance with Lynch, which on paper, 3 chances looks like the smart play. Carroll got out coached.
@  TWshoot67 : (03 February 2015 - 05:55 PM) J13 I feel pretty much the same. even two days later and I can't figure out why passing even entered anyones mind after the result of the previous play running the ball???????? :spank: :WTF: :nono: :crazy: :crazy:
@  J13 : (02 February 2015 - 07:57 PM) Carrolls call at the end makes me want to stick a nail gun against my temple and unload a clip. What a moron
@  Qwagmire : (02 February 2015 - 04:01 PM) Pats-Hawks, Texas-USC, more NCAA violations than any coach in history? Carroll has reaped what he sowed
@  HossOnMoss : (02 February 2015 - 09:51 AM) That was pretty hard to watch. Not a fan for either team, but it's painful to think that Carroll will be living with that choice for the rest of his life.

@  HossOnMoss : (24 November 2014 - 01:37 PM) @TWshoot67: Hard to say what the outcome and results will be, but hiring Como is a good move. He is one of these guys that is really on the cutting edge of the science of the golf swing which will blend well with what Tiger was doing under Foley. Como without a doubt though will have to make some changes, but at least it's not a total "start over" process and he knows what he's doing. Looks like Tiger is going to take more control over what he does with his game rather than following a teacher's instruction to the letter.
@  HossOnMoss : (24 November 2014 - 01:35 PM) @BingHogan: That would be a good test. Without a real formal apples to apples test, my impressions are that KBS Tour V actually shares a mix of characteristics from Modus 120 and 130.
@  TWshoot67 : (23 November 2014 - 01:11 PM) So what's everyones take on Tiger's new swing coach, Chris Como. Thoughts?
@  BingHogan : (21 November 2014 - 01:47 PM) Hey Hoss, any thoughts on doing a comparison of the Nippon 120's vs the KBS Tour V Tour?

I decided today that I'm going to give mid size grips a try. I already have a stock of reg grips,,,

Does any one know how many layers of tape to equal a mid grip (tour velvet or tv cord)? And is there any disadvantage building them up with tape?

Also, does anyone know how much that amount of tape will change the swing weight by?

Thanks guys!

I guess another good question would be what tape would you use to build it up, just two sided or masking tape, or something else? I really appreciate any help. thanks guys

Tape weight is negligible even if you put a couple of layers on. You should not experience a swing weight change. You find your ideal size by experimentation, or you can watch a club pro do some grips.

Double sided tape is easier to use as all I do is add kerosene to slip the grips on. It's a lot cleaner, or easier to clean than a mix of contact cement and kerosene.

standard grip install is one wrap build up then one double sided tape.
- mid sized is plus three wraps build up tape
- oversized is plus 6 wraps build up tape

Shambles



One strip of double sided tape will weigh 2g. So, you will counter balance the club and lose a full swingweight point for every 2 layers (4g) that you add. With him building up to midsize, he is definitely going to notice a difference in the swingweight since it is going to drop by 1.5 to 2 points most likely.

That chart that Qwagmire posted from Golfworks is a good reference. As it states on the top, a layer of masking tape equals 0.10". If you decide to use double sided tape for the build up layers as well which I generally prefer to do, you will need to account for the extra thickness of double sided tape which is about 0.15".

Thanks for the info guys, that charts great. I ended up just putting 1,2,3, and maybe 4 layers on different clubs to see what I liked the feel of the most. I know its funny but two layers felt good. I didnt realize how easily someone could tell an extra later of tape.


Another question that i was wondering, if i were to have used more tape, whats the best way to swing weight. I saw some sort of weights that went into the hosel on golfsmith site. is that the best way and does it only work with certain clubs, as in do the clubs need to be made to allow for this?

i cant figure out which size to use, and someone just put a white NDMC on a wedge and I love it. But at $9 a pop it would drive me crazy to put one on and it be the wrong size...

You can put them on and if you decide later you want to add some tape you can pll the grip off using a tool from gs or gg.
