hey guys, i know most people here are tall fella's so your input on my swing would be helpful cause we are all in the same boat.    thanks, jake   http://thesandtrap.com/t/74515/my-swing-jbarufkin#post_989009
Ok guys, so I am tired of shooting in the mid to high eighties and would like to start to shoot in the low 80's with looks into possible shooting in the high 70's by the end of this season. However, my off-the-tee "yips" (miss hits) are killing me and I'm always getting at least four double/triple boogies a round. I can make birdies and eagles on the par 4 and 5's cause of my distance (driver carries 295-305 with solid contact). However, I have this aggressive attach into...
Hey Aveo,    So my problem with buying golf clothes is that I'm too tall, not big. With this said, I'm always buying an extra size up for the length of the shirt, but the width ends up being way to baggy. Any chance you guys have tall-slim wear? I'm like 6'5''' or 6'4'' (somewhere in that ball park).   -Jake 
Thanks guys for all the info. I've been playing with the flex on my driver and noticed it was pretty similar flight. although i did switch from a stiff flex 9 degree to an x flex 10.5. I will post my swing this weekend from multiple angles and please give me tips. should have it up sometime Saturday 
Thanks WU Tiger for the comment, I'm going to get fitted for all new clubs (well not all new, im keeping my mp60's and my cobra hybrid 2H). I love my 3 iron and will never part with it; just updating my shafts from stiff to x-flex. The 4-wood is a good idea, but i dont know how much distance that gives me over my 2H. The 2H is my bread and butter off the tee on a majority of the par 4's. The problem with the 3 wood is hitting it off the deck, i cant seem to get it up into...
I honestly don't remember my stats on swing speed or anything, but i hit my 9-iron about 150-155 (fairway and off the tee yardages respectively), and same for my 5 iron (195-210-ish). I am playing a mizuno mp-60 with S300 steel shafts. I am 6'4'', but i got my clubs fitted in high school some 5 or 6 years ago (they added 2'' of length when i was 6'2''). Ive decided to upgrade everything i have (new driver, new shafts in old clubs, new wedges and putter). I need...
Okay so im pretty much done with attempting to carry my 3 wood in my bag. its so unreliable and im pretty sure its almost at 50/50 shot of me keeping the ball in play when i pull this club out. Ive hit a one iron hybrid (bobby jones hybrid 15 degree) and loved it. didnt go as far as my 3 wood but hit it 7 times out of 10 straight with the other three shots fading. any thoughts on the switch, or should i only play a driver and 4 wood and start my irons off with 3 rather...
Hey guys,   So I was at the Open yesterday and took a bunch of awesome photos. I wanted to start a thread for those who want to upload their photos to share with everyone. Below is a photo I got of tiger chipping his approach onto the green (within 10ft of course). Please add to this, I would like to see other shots people got of the groups out on the links.     
One tip is to try not to compare your swing to that of the pros. Everyone's swing is a little different and needs to be adjusted differently in order to make the ball do as you want it to. I noticed that you stay on a one plane swing for the most part (which is good, just observing), but you have a very strong left handed grip. Most golfers can look down at their hand position on the club and are able to see 2 to 2.5 knuckles. I think you might be able to see 3, which is...
Hey guys,   So I have started to play more now I'm almost a senior in college and didn't have lot of time my first four years of school and noticed I need to upgrade all of my shafts and grips.  I was fitted while playing on my high school team and was given Stiff-flex in everything but now I am X-flex, or tour-flex, or something along those lines (swing speed is around 109-ish avg). I'd rather do it all myself if I can but at the same time don't want the head of the...
