Thanks ... I thought it was just me being "technically handicapped" ... ... good to know I'm not the idiot people make me out to be! Too bad that that function doesn't work.
I have an iGolf Neo. I have a question for the users of this GPS ... On any given hole you can "mark" a custom spot/point. When I do this and try to change the "name" to something (i.e. right tree, etc.) I cannot get the Neo to take my input. Example, I want to mark a hole that has a large tree at the corner. Aiming just left of the tree is the play on this hole but too far runs through the fairway into deep rough. As tee locations change I wanna know the distance to...
My brothers are scattered about the midwest. We get together once a year and play for "the green jacket." My younger brother bought an old (ugly) green jacket at a St. Vincent's store and that's the reunion prize for our "brothers' golf outing." Both my brothers can kick my rear pretty good and they take pride and joy in doing so. In 2006 we decided to play this one course that had 3-nines; 27 holes for the green jacket. That day my son rounded out the foursome - but...
Someone explain to me how Tiger spun the ball so hard on Saturday at Firestone, please? Holy cow ... the ball HAD to be wet sitting there; wet coming off the face and the greens were definately wet in all that rain. Yet, zip ... he'd pull that string backwards. WOW!!! How is that possible? Incredible to watch, unbelievable to comprehand.
Meanwhile, back at the original post in this thread ... I've been building my own clubs for a number of years. Places mentioned above, i.e. Golfsmith, Golfworks, Dynacraft, etc. all have high quality standards. So assuming the clubhead is of inferior quality/construction and therefore forces a poor swing, i.e. push, slice, hook is incorrect. What happnes a lot is people see these heads for less than 100 bucks, buy a shaft someone said was a "good" shaft and toss on a...
Resist the urge to "hit" the ball and learn to swing the club. The ball is still there (hasn't moved) and the club will swing into it. This is the best book I've found for eliminating the urge to "hit the ball." http://www.amazon.com/Keys-Effortles...9561093&sr=8-6
Minimally, you're gonna need a sturdy workbench and bench top. A bending machine (lie, loft) will run you anywhere from $250 - $800. Plus tools, dies, protector's etc. Visit Golfsmith's website http://www.golfsmith.com/cm/display/category/cm/tools I like their equipment, the best. Buy and read anything on club building and altering clubs from Ralph Maltby (Golf Works); His books are the easiest to follow. http://www.ralphmaltby.com/home If you have a nearby Golf...
Southern Wisconsin - they said on the news this morning - will set a record for the coldest July on record. The old record was recorded in 1891 .... global warming my behind ... And besides cool, it rains like every other or every third day. I can count on one hand how many times I've worn shorts in leagues or our Saturday's buddy golfing. We're set for 7:28 tomorrow and you guessed it, rain 6:00- mid afternoon AGAIN!! This has been a crap summer for golf weather in...
14, and for some reason (lack of practice perhaps) I stopped being effective with my 60* and replaced that club with a 16* rescue.
Swing shape, face angle, groove "condition" will determine back spin more than anything else..
