Makes sense, thanks Erik. I've been working on not kicking the right knee in towards the ball and not letting my butt come off the wall and the result seems to be this armsy swing. It feels awful but I couldn't really pinpoint it. Now to try and get more turn back, and more slide forward without bringing back some of those other problems.
It's been a while... I haven't been playing as much golf as I would have liked since moving half way around the world but I've joined a club and am getting back into it. My game has been all over the place, some truely awful golf and some ok golf. Handicap has gone up 4 or 5 shots. Here's where my swing is at. Struggling with a weak fade right now though contact is pretty consistent. I can see the problems, but I'm struggling to make any headway right now.
 My club isn't in the sandbelt but another part of Melbourne, however we also have a rule that push & pull carts may be taken across greens. Often there will be one or two greens with a sign saying no access across green but generally they find it better to have traffic spread across the green rather than concentrated on the surrounds. Almost everyone walks and pulls or pushes their clubs, so there is quite a lot of traffic each day.
Your mate isn't a vanity handicapper, he's just a cheat.   A vanity handicapper will manipulate the handicap system to lower his handicap, by doing things like not turning in bad rounds, or turning bad rounds into practice rounds. Your friend is actually recording scores he hasn't shot, that's simply cheating.
Can you show us some examples and how it affects their right knee at impact?
You have 3 cards marked by a club member and submit them to the handicap committee who allocate you an initial handicap. So it's not difficult to get started.Clubs also run more competitions over here, I've heard of some having one running most days of the week.
Well recently it's probably been prompted by the complaints about the complexity and difficulties of playing by the rules. Not once have these related to play during an actual competition, so take away the USGA's insistence on posting social rounds for handicap and let these players do whatever they want. Chances are they do anyway but still end up including these rounds in their handicap.But I do also think that it's sad that the cries of bandit would detract from the...
  The blurring of the lines is between social golf and competitive golf. Only rounds played in a competition, played on a course overseen by a committee and signed for by a fellow competitor should count towards a handicap. That you can put it cards from social golf and use that handicap in a competition severely dilutes the whole concept in my opinion.   And when social golf rounds aren't being submitted for handicap you don't need to worry about dropping a ball if one...
Golf strategy is more interesting when you need to consider different penalties for where your shot might end up. As soon as you say that it's a one shot penalty, somewhere up near where your ball lands, no matter what then you might as well bomb away every time.   But ultimately what determines which penalties result from what conditions is down to practicality. The idea that you can decide what your search area is, and then decide to drop wherever your ball would...
