Reviving this thread for 2014.   One of the most important feel tips I've ever read.  This one tip immediately got my arms/hands in sync with my chest/body and eliminated the two-way block/flip miss.  I've struggled with sucking the club back behind my body for almost 20 years and no instructor was ever able to give me a feel tip that was simple enough to consistently repeat...until now. Golf is a much easier game to play when you are swinging on plane.   Thank you so...
Just play a Par 54 course.    Seriously, I started playing golf at 12 and shot a 74 when I was 14.  That summer I posted a lot of rounds in the mid and upper-70s.  I never worked on the range. I just played every day. I was self taught up to that point and my parents paid for me to have lessons that winter to take my game to the next level.  Swing changes ruined my ball striking and I spent the majority of my high school golf career doing my best to avoid hooking it off...
Shot a 73 on a Par 71 layout yesterday.  Was at even until I spun one off the green and into the drink on 17.  I don't have a handicap, though I'd say it would likely be in the high teens prior to yesterday's round.  Four previous rounds were all in the 91-95 range, and I hadn't broken 80 since June 2012.   I'd been having a terrible time for years with pulls and pull hooks, and gone down a slew of roads to alleviate the problem.  After pull-hooking my opening tee shot...
Shot an 87 yesterday on a par-73.  4 doubles and a triple.  Other than those holes, I played ok.  My course management needs a lot of work.  I'm just not thinking my way around the golf course right now, and my misses (constantly short-siding myself, fairway bunkers, etc.) are turning par/bogey holes into double/triple holes.  For instance, hitting driver on a 325 yard hole and driving it into a grove of trees next to the green instead of just playing something to 250 in...
1) non-ready golf guy   2) crappy multiple practice swing guy - the one who spends three minutes taking one smooth practice swing after another.  then he finally addresses his ball and hacks at it like Charles Barkley   3) club thrower/smasher guy - it's just embarrassing and unbecoming of a golfer.  it's all the worse when this is a crap golfer, which it usually is.   4) patronizing guy - played with a guy that would clap and hoot and holler whenever a woman...
It's not all about the long ball or accuracy...it's about both.  You remove either from the equation and you can kiss a good score goodbye on a reasonably long course (say, 6700+).   As for distance...I had been struggling with my driver so I had started to just play my 3H off the tee of late.  I can carry it about 230-240 off the tee and it keeps me in play but it wasn't allowing for many quality birdie looks.  Had a eureka moment two weeks ago with regards to my...
Shot a 74 (+4) from the whites when I was about 14 or 15.   Shot 75 (+3) from the tips three or four times during my senior year of high school.   For nine holes, I've shot a handful of 34s.  Usually followed by a 42-45.   I generally gave up golf when I entered college, so I've only broken 80 three times in the last fifteen years.  And all three of those occurred on easy courses.
1) Webb Simpson - 276 2) Lee Westwood - 277 3) Tiger Woods - 278
So after 20 years, I've finally bit the bullet and hooked up with a golf instructor.  The progress I've made during two months of lessons is unbelievable compared to the progress I made on my own during those 20 futile years.  Obviously, I'm working on a bunch of things simultaneously, but here's the two I've worked on most recently:   1) Working on removing all extraneous independent hand and wrist movements from my putting stroke.  I just discovered that I'm way...
Sorry to dig up such old thread, but I thought I'd share my two cents since I recently bought the M85T.  I have the 9.5 and adjusted the face 2 degrees open.  I'm not one to make ridiculous claims, but this thing is absolutely huge.  And I'm not lying when I say that this added a good 15 yards to my drives.  My spin rates were really solid (right around 2300) with this compared to clubs like the R11, Ping I15, Adams Speedline, etc.  I'm hitting a very consistent high...
