Yep you are correct, my bad.  I had both sides taped face and bottom.  I should have said that and frankly brain farted about that aspect of it.  thanks
Trevino is dead nuts on.  I live next to a RTJ Sr. designed and built golf course.  It is a muni course a county parks course.  Has one creek on the front snaking around it and one on the back snaking around.  Some swamp acerage and tons of wildlife.  Elevated tees, greens and narrow fairways with guess what lots of countors.  It is short with one par 5 on each side.  Some of the par 4's are long though and are dog legs left and right.  Alot of trees around it too. ...
For lie angle you have to hit the stick with the face taped up with hitting tape to indicate where the ball is making contact with the club on the face.  Standards deviate between manufacture'rs.  So when I get a set of sticks that are new to me I'll go to Dicks Sporting Goods most of the time.  Hit off there board with the face taped and see where the club face is making contact with the ball.  You can guess all you want but hitting a ball on the face and having it...
I keep the ball pos. the same I just move my back foot more or less depending on the club!  thanks
Ok I might have been fibbing here with the TM Firesoles.  Reason I say this I have 3 sets of Hogans.  Apex graphite shafted GCD's, Apex steel #3 Edge, and just bought a set of Edge GCD's, in the Apex 3 shafts at a garage sale the other day.  So anyways the garage sale set I bought were in nice cond., useable grips and all I had to do is clean them up  and I buffed up the bottoms with a little hand held belt grinder.  For 30 bucks for a full set how can you go wrong...
Ok so got back into the game last year.  Been buying up sets of clubs off the bay when I see something that I always wanted to try but never had the cash.  Mostly clubs from when I stopped playing so pre 2K.  An example of stuff I have owned and still own are Titelist, Ping, Hogan, Wilson, Founders Club, Callaway, Taylor made, and oh yea Lynx Black Cats.    So here is my take on these sticks.  The easiest by far to hit accurately with good distance and a nice boring...
What I do and I got this tip from reading Golf my Way by J.N. is to go behind my ball.  Pick out a target in front of the ball about 18" or so away.  Line the ball up with that target along your target line.  Next move up to the ball and align the club face behind the ball in line with the target you picked out in front of your ball.  Make sure all 3 are lined up correctly and then take your stance.    Now another you can do if you are aiming left if the above...
I don't know about the "other" fingers and pressure points.  But I do know that my right hand pointer finger(I am right handed), depending on how I have it on the grip, will depend alot on what type of shot I hit.  My right hand index finger more under the grip and not as hooked and I will hit a high fade.  Reliably too. ie) right hand a wee bit under the grip.     With my pointer finger more down the shaft with a bit more pressure on the inside of the finger and a...
I don't know any pro's that play to 4 or 8.  What I am saying is that it seems to me when the pro's win a couple of tournaments or more so a couple of Major events they seem to revamp there swing.  All I am saying is that I pretty much got mine back over the course of 5 months of playing and pounding balls in July and Aug.  I ain't great but better actually than alot of folks I see playing.  So why would a touring pro fix what ain't broke?  I am a bit better than a bogey...
Just picked the game back up this year after an 11 year layoff.  Have purchased numerous sets of clubs off the bay mostly because when I played back then I couldn't afford what I am buying now cheap off the bay.  That being said I was touting the Fire Sole irons by TM as probably being the most forgiving I have found.  That includes, Wilson, Ping, Callaway and Titelist.  A couple of others like Hossom, and Founders Club(which these are actually very very good players...
