Edited to nothing to short circuit this argument.  I have some family issues with drugs and I suppose am super-sensitive to someone stereotyping and being what I think is cruel.  That said, I went overboard with this post so I edited it.Back to the golf side of the forum. :)
 This is exactly the response a decent human being should have.  No envy or jealousy here.  This is the sympathetic, god-fearing response.  He is a human and he deserves sympathy and respect from his fellow humans. He is a drug addict.  I've had drug addicts in my family.  They are sad and should be pitied, not hated.  To say what some others said on here (chicken legs, fake tan, etc...) is cruel, hateful and from a bad place in their own lives. EDIT: Its either that, or...
 I think the actual, honest answer to this question is "nobody has any idea at all". Generally, I think you need to be really, really good at something with a significant separation value.  The lower the separation value, the better you need to be relative to the field.  This could be because when you were 3 you played some game over and over and developed incredible hand eye co-ordination.  Or not. I think the people who say "you need a ton of natural talent but I can't...
 "I hate Dustin Johnson because he married a party girl and, while I don't really know him, I am going to call him all sorts of horrible things in public based on virtually nothing" is what envious jerks say. "Drugs are a very damaging thing and I condemn their use.  I hope that Dustin recovers from a health problem of his own making." is what loving human beings say. Of course you can call people out for bad decisions.  But when it becomes insults because someone is...
On a vacation in Tuscany for three weeks.  Anyone have any courses they would recommend?  Going to be staying in Montecatini but easy train rides to Pisa, Florence.   Would specifically love to find somewhere with a driving range, if possible, where i can buy just hitting balls without a round (Tough to find, I know).  English speaking not required.   Thanks in advance!   Best,   John
Thanks to all for the great replies. I liked the book Lowest Score Wins because it made me rethink alot about how I manage the course and how I pick my equipment - it just leads you to challenge what you assume to be true about the game. One offshoot of hitting my driver much more (which I have started to do since reading the book) is that I am now hitting shorter clubs out of worse lies. This is where I think it is advantageous to have the "iron set" wedges b/c they have...
Hi All,   You don't really see "good" (or golfers who play alot) use the G/A, S and L wedges from their iron set.  After reading LSW and thinking about it, I thought the forgiveness would be important to still hitting middle of the green with the longer wedge shots.  Obviously i realize the book says get fitted for wedges, but assuming that isn't an option, why don't more players use their iron set wedges?    I took my Mack Daddy 2 wedge and a used X-hot iron sand...
 Fair enough, and I am glad you are getting better.  However, while it might feel like this will be perfect forever right now, its going to stop working.  Its human nature - if a little right arm push is good, a lot of right arm push is better, right?  Swing tips are like that.  They work bc its letting you feel something new, but its very difficult to *build* on something like this.  If you don't know *why* the right arm push is working (for example, you clearly don't...
Stumpy, have you videotaped yourself swinging this way and compared it to the diagrams?  Or are you going on feel?   The impact condition in that picture is poor, and won't lead to good shots consistently.  However, the "feel" of the swing might be just right for you.  For example, it really helps me to "feel" like my hips go over my left foot at impact.  It feels like they do.  But on video, they are not even close to getting that far forward, but thats what I need to...
 Hitting it very high with a lack of distance is a characteristic of flipping in a swing.  Your impact condition is adding loft.
