Sure you can!! Just throw the clubs in the nearest ocean. But be sure to leave them in the trunk of your new Ferrari as you do so. Why not? it's a great idea to have that good old rust finish, to a Ferrari as well as a golf iron. Come to think of it, maybe you should stay in the car as well!!!! ONLY kidding!!!! (People are way too sensitive these days, it all in the additives) But what are you thinking dude? Clubs aren't soooo expensive. Get a new set.
Here's the reason why you are hitting off the toe: your hands are way too high at impact! You are a 14 hcp player and you have grooved your swing over time. Now you have a gremlin in there which is giving you grief. Think about it. If your hands were lower at impact - spine angle has remained in posture etc, your club would meet the ball centrally. Raise the hands higher through impact and the club toes down through impact, and voila! You have a seriously shitty...
Hey Ethan! You can buy as much equipment as you like, but without the right education in a sport, you aren't going to get anywhere in golf by having brand-named clubs. This is a solo sport, friend: it's you, the landscape, the weather, and a little ball which has to go into a hole, which is pretty small, and pretty far away. And that has to happen 18 times!!! And it has to be done with ridiculous equipment!!! Yes, it is right to have good clubs, but it is WAY more...
Man oh Man!!!!!!!! What a thread!!!!! Only ONE post in this entire thread has damned Daly as a nogood-loser. ONE!! Isn't that amazing?? What is it about John we all love so much? The God-given talent? The no-risk-no-fun attitude to every aspect of his game? The workingclass style, winning majors and giving the stuffed shirts of golf the finger? Whatever it is, MARK THESE WORDS: John will make the comeback of the century in sports. He will win when we least expect...
Ah lameburns, what a shame. You would have lost 6 of them anyway, in the 3rd hole water hazard!! Now you can lose those old Top Flites instead!!! What is the world coming to??!
the answer to all the above: The Dave Pelz Short Game Bible, and anything he says on putting. Dave is so sincere, so serious about the short game, so experienced, so eloquent, so able to instruct and communicate all his knowledge. His emphasis on routine, on how to swing a club well for the inside-100yd shot, from any lie, from any sand, across any obstacle, on how to putt on any type of green, will and should grab your attention and lower your scores...
Hey, you're a 10 handicapper and that means you have played some pretty good golf already, so you know all there is to know about great balance, posture, finish positions, weight transfer, etc etc, right? You don't become a 10 handicapper without the basics. One of the basics is to have your weight transfer to your left side, making a turn towards your target as you strike the ball. A lot of people though, don't have anywhere to turn FROM because they didn't move...
Here in Europe our coverage starts at 1600 and goes on live until the round ends, at about midnight. Normally, I am mesmerised in front of my TV by the brilliance of the Tour Players and how they dominate a golf course. This time, with the Oakmont setup, it makes for really boring TV, only because we are seeing the guys play defensive golf and trying to stop the trainwrecks from happening. I read iacas observations - they are all really informative but as far as riveting...
Interesting topic....and here is the answer, from Tiger himself... How to Escape from Heavy Rough - The key to playing from deep rough are generating clubhead speed and controlling the clubface. Position the ball toward the back of your stance and open the clubface slightly. The latter will help you get the ball up quickly and counteract the tendency of the grass to grab the hosel and close the face. Align your body slightly left of the target, because the...
A good subject - one I have been a real victim of. Managed to sort it out by reading a lot of Dave Pelz. A LOT OF DAVE PELZ!!!! Body movement is usually responsible for lousy contact, especially on short irons. But what kind of body movement? Usually a spine which is not "over" the ball at contact, but is somehow curving toward the target - allowing contact to be with the big ball before the small ball. Try "dominating" the ball with your spine (on the range).....to do...
