    SuperStroke Putter Grip

    SuperStroke 3.0 to SuperStroke 1.0 Putter Grip How To & Review

    SuperStroke putter grips have been growing in popularity on the tour for a few years now. A few months ago I decided to go with the SuperStroke Traxion Tour 3.0 Putter Grip and after using it a few time out on the course as well as on the putting green, I decided that the 3.0 was a bit too thick for my liking. For me the thicker grip didn’t have the feel I was hoping for, which is why I decided to change out the 3.0 with the SuperStroke Traxion Tour 1.0 Putter Grip. In the video below I will walk you through step-by-step on how to remove the larger putter grip and how to easily install the new much slimmer one.

    Step-by-Step How to Remove & Install SuperStroke Putter Grip

    1. Purchase your new SuperStroke Putter Grip – Check Prices on Amazon Here 
    2. Gather all needed supplies to install your SuperStroke Grip (Double Sided TapeGrip Tape Solution, Hook BladesUtility KnifeMud Pan, Acetone, and a towel)
    3. Grab your putter
    4. Remove old grip by inserting hook blade and pulling away from you, peel back the grip. If you have any tension just reinsert the hook blade as you are peeling back the grip, it should come off pretty easily.
    5. Remove old double sided tape. Use utility knife with a regular blade to scrape off the tape, it should come off pretty easily. Wipe it down with the acetone to remove the old glue.
    6. Measure double sided tape to the length of your new putter grip and cut it
    7. Apply the double sided tape to your putter leaving a little over hang at the top of the putter shaft, tuck the tape into the hole at the top of the putter shaft.
    8. Wrap the tape around the putter shaft and remove the other side of the tape exposing the outer sticky part of the tape
    9. Pour your grip tape solution onto your new putter grip holding it over your mud pan while plugging the hole on the bottom of your grip with your finger.
    10. Once the grip is full with the solution pour it over the double sided tape, which you can just pour it or remove your finder from the hole in the bottom of your grip and let it flow out over the grip tape, either way will work fine.  Either way hold it over your mud pan so you don’t make a mess and can save the tap solution as you can reuse it. 
    11. Slide your new putter grip onto the shaft and over the double sided tape, it should slide on very easily.
    12. Once on, tap the end of the club on the floor a few times to make sure your golf grip is all the way on.
    13. Once on you will want to line up your grip with SuperStroke facing front and the gray line facing back (SuperStroke should face the hole and the gray strip should face away from the hole when holding your putter) Please note that you have plenty of time to line this up so there is no need to panic and rush through this. Test is out before setting it aside to dry.
    14. Wait 3-4 few hours (I usually wait 24 hours) to give it time to dry.

    Installing your new SuperStroke putter grip at home without using a vise is no big deal and should only take a few minutes to complete. If you have any issues, comments, tips or tricks I would love to hear from you. I again appreciate you taking the time to stop by and I hope you found this post useful.

  • Ben Hogans Real Golf Swing Secret | The Stress-Free Golf Swing Review

    Have you struggled with hitting consistent pure golf shots? I know when I am out on the golf course and hitting the ball pure I almost don’t care where the ball goes as the feeling  of hitting a pure shot is just not like anything else and you feel so good afterwards you find yourself telling the others in your group “man I hit that one really go”.

    Now, as good as that feels you would ideally want to be more consistent and more importantly more accurate as you and I both know hitting the ball from the fairway is much easier than searching for your ball in the long grass, fescue, woods, etc.. Another key to shooting lower scores is being able to hit more greens in regulation. 

    Did you know that in order for you to break 80 you will need to hit a minimum of 7 greens in regulation.  The average golfer that shoots in mid 80’s to low 90’s only hits 2-4 greens in regulation. Think back to your last round, how many birdie chances did you have and how many of your pars were the result of a great 1 putt.

    If you are tired of watching countless youtube videos, trying to figure out your swing and just getting more and more frustrated, you are not a lone.  Let me introduce Ben Hogan’s Real Golf Swing Secret, which is surprising quick and easy to learn.

    Michael Ferrara

    Hi, my name is Michael Ferrara,

    I have been playing Golf since I was around 8 and took it seriously as a Freshman in High School. After High School, I was more interested in cars and girls which put Golf on the back burner. Flash forward 23 years and I am ready to get serious with my game and take it as far as I can take it. 

    With that being said, I needed to find something I could work on in my free time, which I stumbled across Ben Hogan’s Real Golf Swing Secret by Jeff Richmond and it has been game changer, which is why I wanted to share it with you.

    My Review On The Stress-Free Golf Swing

    At this point you are probably asking yourself what exactly is The Stress-Free Golf Swing and will it work for me and my golf swing?

    Before we get into will this work for you, let me quickly answer your first question, what exactly is The Stress-Free Golf Swing?

    The simple answer is, it is simply a digital program that aims to teach you “the simplest golf swing on Earth”

    If your anything like me, your thinking yeah okay I have heard this before…

    Well so did I, however, after reading the reviews and watching some youtube video’s on Ben Hogan’s swing I was sold and decided to purchase it and give it a try, after all what could it hurt, other that a few bucks. 

    The Stress-Free Golf Swing is usefully for golfers of all levels, from beginner to the most seasoned as it’s Ben Hogan’s swing, which he has been labeled as one of the best strikers of all time. 

    I will caution you that when you learn the secret you will need to go into with an open mind as it is really like nothing you’ve seen before. 

    My first surprise was how easily and quickly I was able to learn and incorporate this small move change in my swing. The best part is you are able to practice this from anywhere, at any time and you can learn it in as little as 5 minutes. 

    Now, I will tell you that this move is not regularly taught and will go against almost everything you have seen and heard. It will feel unnatural at first, however, I was really surprised at how fast it started to feel natural.

    At this point you may be on the fence or just not convinced and trust me I get it, however, what if thinking this is a load of crap and will never work for me, thinking what if this works for me and I am able to consistently hit 14 or more green in regulation this year, how good will that feel and what will that do with your confidence. 

    Click the link below to get the full story of how Ben Hogan came up with this unique swing and how you too can start hitting more consistent pure shots.

    Here’s what you will get with The Stress-Free Golf Swing

    Everything you will need to replicate Hogan’s move, but you will also get additional tips, techniques and instructions on how to get the best results from this program. 

    Here is what is included:

    • 160 Page Book in PDF Format (Digital Download)
    • 21 Online Training Videos
    • 1 Page PDF Cheat Sheet
    • No Risk 60-day Trial – Money Back Guarantee

    My Final Thoughts on The Stress-Free Golf Swing

    I was very skeptical at first as I have seen tons of video, have tried a ton of different moves which all lead me to more confusion and frustration in my consistency of my golf swing. I would have awesome days out on the range on the course and other days where I was all over the place and when I had those days all these different techniques were running through my head, trying to get my swing figured out on the course just made matters worse. I am sure you can relate. 

    Now when I stumbled across Ben Hogan’s Real Golf Swing Secret, I thought what could it hurt. After learning his simple move I have to admit I got a little giddy as I thought really that’s it.. I took what I learned out to the range and yes it felt weird at first, however, after only a few swings I was hitting more pure shots and the sound of the ball coming off my club head was just awesome is the only way I can explain it. 

    The only downside to this program is that it is 100% digital which most things are now a days. 

    I am very happy with my purchase of The Stress-Free Golf Swing Program and I am even more excited to take what I have learned out onto the course this year.

    The last thing I will leave you with is, if you are on the fence, just think about the what if this helps my game in anyway verses the other negative thought, you won’t be disappointed and if for any reason you are, they offer a full refund.

  • Mistwood Indoor Golf Dome Review | Bolingbrook, IL

    Mistwood Golf Dome

    Mistwood Indoor Golf Dome

    Mistwood Golf Dome is located at 730 N Bolingbrook Dr (IL-53), Bolingbrook, IL 60440. They are open during the week (Monday -to- Thursday) from 8am to 10pm (11pm on Friday) and on the weekend from 7am -to- 11pm on Saturday and 10pm on Sunday.

    It is recommended to reserve a bay ahead of time as they book up quick making walk-ins very difficult.


    Golf season for most of us living in the Midwest is April to November, if were lucky.  Leaving us only a few off-season practice options to consider and one of those options is the Mistwood Golf Dome with Toptracer Technology. 

    If you are not familiar with Toptracer, it’s the technology that is able to track and trace your ball path during flight, which if you have watched any PGA Tour events on TV this is the magical line on the screen showing the balls path through the air, which in my opinion makes watching golf so much better. 

     

    Chipping Area

    The chipping area is a decent size and is able to fit 3 golfers at a time, however, 2 is the  preferred amount in my experience. There are multiple holes at varying distances for you to chip too. All in all this is a nice little chipping green for off-season practice. 

    Putting Area

    Mistwood Golf Dome offers you two practice putting areas, one is located next to the chipping area and the other is located on the other side near the training area. I prefer the putting green near the training area as I find it a bit larger and is normally less crowded than the other area. I will note that the putting greens here are very fast, so easy does it. 

    Mistwood Golf Dome Bay 2

    The Range

    Mistwood Golf Dome offers 30 hitting stations to choose from both upstairs and on the main floor. Each bay has your typical artificial indoor hitting mat, unlimited balls, sitting area, and Monitor with Toptracer.  

    • Week Day Rates: $19.50 per half hour
    • Weekend Rates: $22.50 per half hour
    • Unlimited balls included at your bay, no need to purchase buckets or tokens
    • Putting and Chipping Greens are available at no additional cost
    • Toptracer Technology provides instant feedback with every shot and is also stored on the mobile app

    Final Thoughts

    Overall I really enjoy coming out to the Mistwood Golf Dome as it offers me the perfect off-season practice facility to keep the rust off my swing during the winter months. The other big factor is having the ability to hit the ball out onto the range verses a screen or net a few feet away from me. Toptracer technology not only provides instant feedback but offers different games to keep practice fun.

     

    If you live in the area and are looking for a great place to hit some balls during the winter months or when the weather is just nasty outside I would highly recommend checking out the Mistwood Golf Dome

  • How to Install SuperStroke Putter Grip Step-By-Step without a vise

    Super Stroke Putter Grip

    SuperStroke Traxion Tour 3.0 Putter Grip

    SuperStroke putter grips are taking the PGA by storm. I am sure you have noticed the fat putter grips many PGA Professionals are using now a days on their putters and if you are anything like me you are thinking to yourself what is the deal with the fat putter grips.

    The short answer, other that they look awesome is the bigger diameter in your grip the more difficult it is to break your wrists during your putting stroke.

    I can honestly say the putter grip looks amazing and feels really nice and comfortable in my hand. Now it did take a few putts to get use to the bigger grip, however, after a few putts I am really enjoying the feel of the bigger diameter grip.

    Now the next big question, how hard is it to install on of these putter grips on my putter and is this something I can do my myself?

  • PXG 0311 Forged 50 Gap Wedge Review + How to regrip to Golf Pride CP2 Wrap Grip

    I was looking for a gap wedge to fill my 100 to 120 yard gap in my bag. I did my research and looked at a number of clubs as well as which degree wedge would fill my need.  As you can guess I setteled on the PXG Forged 50 degree wedge, which you can see all the specs I selected when ordering the club here.

    Which degree should I choose?

    This is a great question and it all will depend on what need you are trying to fill.  With that being said here are the typical yardage for the degree of wedge you choose:

    • 50 degree = 115 yards
    • 52 degree = 106 yards
    • 54 degree = 100 yards 
    • 58 degree = 84 yards

    The above averages will be a good starting point for you when thinking about adding a new gap wedge to your bag.

    PXG 0311 Wedge

    Chipping with 0311 PXG 50 degree wedge

    Chipping around the green with the PXG 50 degree wedge was crisp and easily to get on target consistently at different distances. In comparing a 60 degree wedge to using a 50, I would personally go with the 50 over the 60 for most chips around the green. Overall I was very happy with the control and ease to get the ball off the ground and on target.

    PXG 50 degree on the range

    Looking down at the club head at address, it was a bit smaller than I am use too since this is more of a blade style club, however, after a few swings I really liked the look and feel of this club. Consistency was decent for my first few swings, which you can see in the image below and it just kept getting better and better with more swings. The ball flight was very good, yardage was impressive. Yardage was consistently in the 125 – 130 yardage range as I got more comfortable with the club.

  • The Best Golf Rangefinders for 2022

    Do you remember the days of locating a yardage marker somewhere on the fairway or cart path, if you could actually find one at all and then walking off your distance to figure out how far from the green you are.  Well those days are over thanks to a Golf Range Finder.  So just in case this is the first time you are thinking about purchasing a golf range finder, let me quickly explain the purpose of a Golf Range Finder.

    Golf Range Finders or DMD (Distance-Measuring Device) are simply designed to help you with one thing and that is to tell you how far away you are from the pin, bunker, barber pole, etc. Simply put no longer searching the fairway for the elusive sprinkler head with a yardage marker on it.

    So considering it has one simple purpose, it is amazing to see the difference in models and price points from range finder to range finder.

    Having used many different range finders I can tell you that they are not all equal and some are much easier than others to target in on the pin and get a yardage reading back.

    I put this review together to hopefully help you decide on selecting the right Golf Range Finder for you.

     

    What Features to Consider for your Rangefinder

    When thinking about purchasing a golf rangefinder, you want to keep a few things in mind. Each rangefinder will have some unique features that will set it apart from other rangefinders out there.  So what are some of these unique features you may ask.

    Slope -vs- Non-Slope

    The Slope feature is NOT ALLOWED in any USGA golf tournament (see the rule here) and will need to be turned off if available on your rangefinder. 

    The slope feature helps determine the exact yardage needed for a shot when accounting for the elevation difference from your ball to the hole.

    So the question is should I purchase a range finder with the slope feature?  This is a great question and there is no right or wrong answer to this question, it will come down, how much you want to spend on a rangefinder, how often do you play, do you play in tournaments.

    Pin Locking Technology

    Now in my personal experience this is one of the most important features when considering a rangefinder and the simple reason is I have found some to be very easy to lock onto the pin resulting in a quick yardage reading and others to be a huge pain trying to get a reading, leaving you frustrated with —- reading.

    Most rangefinders come with good optics which will be crystal clear, like looking through a rifle scope or binoculars.

    There should be no blurring, crystal clear images, making it easy to pick out your intended target. Our recommendation is at least 5x magnification with easy focus adjustment mechanism.

    The last thing to consider when searching for your next rangefinder is the design of the crosshair, some rangefinders have a simple + while others have a plus with a circle in the middle making it easier to lock onto your target.

    Battery

    Most rangefinders will use either rechargeable batteries, AAA or CR2 batteries. Rangefinders do not use a ton of power when doing their readings, therefore, batteries should last over many rounds before you need to replace or recharge.

    Cons:

    • A little slower that other rangefinders in the premium price range
    • There is a learning curve to learning all the features and capabilities 
    • Heavier than other rangefinders
    • Battery life

    Final Thoughts on The Best Golf Rangefinders

    Golf rangefinders are becoming more and more common, making the days of searching for that elusive yardage marker obsolete. 

    The good news is that there are a lot of options for rangefinders ranging from most technology advanced to the basic rangefinder. With price ranges from $80 to $500+ there is golf rangefinder for nearly every price range.
