The thread about Tiger's ball flight got me thinking about this, I have read several posts recently that seem overly concerned about hitting the ball too high. Taking out the shot off the tee that I hang back on the right side and the ball is clearly an in-field pop fly that could be caught by the pitcher, I don't think I have ever hit the ball too high. Furthermore, recently my irons have come together and I have gotten more height and distance out of the 'nearer...
One thing I noticed watching the teaching pro I am playing with on the course was he "knew his miss" and played to it much better than I did. -E
Well it looks like the new distances are here to stay. Knocked it around for 9-holes with the Pro I am taking lessons with, I was plesantly suprised to see the biggest differences in our games was quality of the short game. Tee to green, I did not feel the leagues apart as some folks describe playing with a low capper (he plays to a 0.x-1.x). Obviously the quality of his misses was slightly better on full swings. The biggest biggest biggest diference was shots from...
I think trying to understand how to work the ball is important at all levels. For instance, I have worked quite a bit so that my stock shot is a slight draw, this happens with a stance parallel to the target line and an in-to-out swing with a good release. One of my misses if I tense up in the swing is a shot that starts slight right and curves slight right (2y-5y). What basically happened is the tension held off the release for me and left the face open through...
I did not realize that Bushnell made a Tour V2 scope and rangefinder. The second link appears to also be a scope. I have only ever used a scope once, it got the job done when you can see the whole pin to the accuracy of the lines with marked distances. I would not give up my laser for anything though. $300 is well worth it. $20 is probably worth it in the meantime till you save up your pennies for the other one. Although pacing from yardage markers would save you...
The first link the scope is an estimate based on the height of the flagstick. You put one line at the base of the flag, then where you see the top of the flag there are pre-printed numbers telling you the range. The second you linked is much more acurate and uses a laser to measure the distance to +/- 1 yard. Regards, -E
6 hours from Detroit is Lake Geneva, WI There is Geneva National Grand Geneva Hawk's View and a few others in the area. Regards, -E
I think you need to go into a lesson very open-minded. You also need to give feedback to their method, if you are getting overwhelmed with the technical bits ask them to tone it down some. For me, I like to see the video of full swing about 3-5 times a lesson with all the subilties and possible corrections so I have the information. After looking at it and hearing it I don't actively think about it at all just push it to the "back brain." Then when working with the...
Again speaking only from my own perspective, though I feel it does add to the OP topic about how many wedges to carry and why, the changes you are bringing up here are primaraly accomplished at address, though I can see where someone without experience would have problems here. A few lessons and a lot of questions has mitigated this issue for me. I agree here, for chipping, I use a single club approach (9I) and I am not even tempted to use all the other clubs. The...
I am pretty sure that the USGA handicapping system has a minimum course length requirement. I think it is somewhere in the 4,000y range. Regards, -E Source: USGA Handicap Manual f. Unacceptable Scores Scores made under the following conditions are not acceptable for handicap purposes and must not be entered in the player's scoring record: (i) When fewer than seven holes are played; (ii) When made on a golf course in an area in which an inactive season...
