 Who is the girl on the right? She looks cute.
Hambrick and his team say these 10,000 hours claims are simply "incorrect". Their findings suggest that "some normally functioning people may never acquire expert performance in certain domains, regardless of the amount of deliberate practice they accumulate." This may sound disheartening, but there is a "silver lining". People can avoid wasting time on futile dreams, say Hambrick et al, and "gravitate towards domains in which they have a realistic chance of becoming an...
But now a team led by David Hambrick have published a forceful challenge to the 10,000 myth. "We found that deliberate practice does not account for all, nearly all, or even most variance in [elite music or chess] performance," they write. ... The take-out was clear - some people failed to achieve the highest level even after completing substantially more than 10,000 of practice; others achieved the highest level with only relatively modest practice. ... "The bottom...
I'm a 25 HCP and I play MP33.   I bought MP33 two years ago when I started playing golf. I didn't know SGI/blades/cavity and which irons that were suitable for me at that time. I bought them just because it looks good, came from a company that I'm familiar, and it was ridiculously cheap. I've been through various ups and downs with MP33. I enjoyed hitting pure shot with this blade. I have no problem with 5-PW, but mishits on long irons (3 and 4) were awful. My highest...
Haven't read all the post here. But, is this basically a 3-wood off the tee? How does it perform off the fairway (compared to regular 3-wood)?
I took up golf in late 2012 when I was 28. I just got a divorce and need a kind of escape to cleared up my mind. I chose golf simply because the company that I worked for has a lot of golf events and I thought it would be embarrassing for me if I couldn’t participate.   I took 5 x 2 hour lessons from a pro. Basically I learned everything from zero: grip, stance, posture, swing, and other fundamental aspects of golf. I’m not an athlete guy and not muscular either but I...
  Thanks for your lavish explanation, guys. It cleared up my doubt and confusion. It seems that I have to stick with 10* driver and regular shaft. I realised that with stiff shaft, I tend to try to overswing and hit the ball as fast/hard as I can, that result in losing balance and control. With regular shaft, I assume that I can swing with 75-85% of my power, but still have the balance and control, right?
  Sorry, my mistake. I'm righty. My mishit goes RIGHT, not left.  Sorry for the confusion. Assuming that you have the same swing speed/technique/etc., what is the difference in hitting 8.5/9.5/10.5 driver? Does it affect distance and ball flight significantly?
 Thanks for your prompt reply. When I hit it good, it goes straight, but just as far as my 3-wood.When I hit it bad, it goes left. Yes, it's a BAD slice, not just a fade.
Hi,   I'm finding it difficult to hit my driver properly. It's 8.5*, neutral face, 55 gram stiff stock shaft, standard length, 45". Half of my tee shot always slice to the right. Even when I hit it perfectly, it's probably just as far as my 3-wood shot. Is it because of the loft/weight/flex/length?   Btw, I have 3-wood and 5-wood standard stiff shaft and hit them fine. I hit my ProjectX 5.5 on my irons just fine. My old driver is 9.5 regular shaft and I just hit them...
