It's definitely flat. I compared an old video from behind to a couple pros. Big difference. My next indoor range session is Saturday, I will try to raise that up and see what happens. I'm amazed I have never noticed that.
I came here to ask if I was getting the club far enough back/what stretches I could do to help go further... Saw Robbo68's post, but I didn't want to hijack it, so I'm starting my own thread. Here is a quick video of me a couple days ago:
Sorry about the quality/portrait view. I haven't swung a club in 4 months and I noticed I wasn't getting the club even close to parallel. Is it something I should work on or just leave it be?
I know this was a long time ago, but I did finally get the book about a week ago. Pretty busy with school, so I'm only halfway through, but I will certainly let you guys know what I think when I finish it. So far it has confirmed a lot of my beliefs. There have been several moments when I have wanted to yell "I KNEW IT!!" to conclusions the authors have come to. I'm going to make my dad (swing coach?) and my high school coach read it so I can say I told you so.
Another quick question about fitting: I'm always hesitant to get fit at the beginning of the year because I haven't swung a club in 4 months. I feel like my swing may not be the same as when I'm in mid season form. Should I wait or should I just go get fit ASAP?
Would it be frowned upon if I went and got fitted with no intention of buying a club, just to find out what shaft would be good? That seems like it would be wrong.I figured since the i15 and SLDR 430 were extra stiff they would be very similar, but they are quite a bit different.I guess I haven't even hit the SLDR yet, maybe the stock shaft is floppy, but perfect for my swing. I'm going to wait until it is more then 5° outside and I can hit it a few times before I decide...
That would be awesome if I could get a shaft for that price. How would I know I was getting the right shaft for my swing though? I know I swing fast enough for extra stiff but I don't know what I would need as far as weight and kick point.Also, are there shafts available that already have the connector to the head in place?
Recently bought a new SLDR 430 with a stock X flex shaft from eBay. I'm coming from a Ping i15 with an X flex TFC 700 shaft. The SLDR shaft seems super floppy and bendable compared to the i15 shaft, is this normal for Taylormade driver shafts?
Anyway, because of this I'm thinking of going to get fit for a new shaft at some point. I've been fit for a driver and an iron set in the past and I felt like. I couldn't trust the guys doing it at all. I went a couple...
Playing in the Indiana State Am, 7268 yds, 75.3/136.
I shot 78 the first day, just didn't get anything going.
The second day I played really well, I was one under through 15 holes. On the 16th hole I had just gotten onto the green when we got hit with a downpour. Rained so hard they blew the horn due to standing water on greens.
Waited for the green to clear, went back out... 3 putted from 20 feet for bogey. I was upset, but still even and still happy with my...
This could be a cool thread! I have a few tournaments coming up in september. A couple NCCGA events, hopefully NCCGA nationals, and another amateur event run by my state's golf foundation. I'd love to win at least one of them.
Since school is about to start I won't get much time to practice, but when I do I will be focusing on getting my driver in the fairway more and working around the greens. After watching the PGA championship in person, I was impressed the...
I thought I figured it out earlier this summer.... I was playing in tournaments and doing amazingly well.... 8 rounds my relation to par was -7, and these were difficult courese, in the range of 74.5-75.5 and slopes of 130-140.
I thought all the potential people always told me I had was finally coming through, then the second round of my state open happened. I shot two under the first day and I was feeling golden. The next day I shot 9 over and haven't even played...
