Thanksgiving is the harvest festival.  It means to be very grateful to God for what we have to eat.  For without the blessings of food, we could not golf.
I meant this thread to be taken with a sense of humour and I take it some people did not find this funny. I apologize. 
What?  Neither Ian nor Sergio are gay?  Such a shame, they are both so incredibly handsome!
I saw a photograph of Ian Poulter kissing Sergio Garcia after team Europe beat the Americans in the 2014 Ryder Cup.  I'm not saying either Poulter or Garcia is gay, but a picture does say a thousand words. It's certainly, um, "progressive" for men's professional golf.  Hey, it's happening in professional football and basketball, why would golf be any different?  The question is who shall be that individual.  I think it's going to be....
It still works!  I just played today and shot a wonderful 85.  My putting is ridiculous and everybody still laughs, but I did not slice today and except for the odd "slight cut" shot, they were either straight or had a nice draw on them.  Before, I was hanging back on my behind foot throughout the swing and as a result, my forward foot always spun around and pointed to the hole;  that's just plain wrong and leads to chunky shots.  Upon transferring most of my weight onto...
I just got back from the practice range.  You're right!  It actually works!  I started with my weight just slightly on the behind foot and during the downswing, gently (i.e. not a bump) transfer my weight onto the forward foot and my shots were almost making it into orbit (okay, I'm exaggerating, but thanks for the great tip) .
I've tried keeping my weight on the forward foot during the entire swing and without any success; perhaps there is such a thing as too much weight on it and I should try to feel for eighty percent.  Thanks for the advice though, I'll give it a try.
Keeping my weight slightly on my right foot and let the swing transfer my weight automatically, I shortened my backswing considerably and for the downswing I thought about trying to swing the club hard out to the right, to keep from coming over the top.  It feels as if I'm going to completely miss the ball, instead, it strikes it solidly with a slight draw.
I got into a heated argument with a "friend" who claimed I must take a stroke because on a particular shot I had in the trees, I hit the stupid tree and, knowing full well it's hopeless at that point, "aborted" the shot by stopping the club about half way down.  I told him he has the intellect of an artichoke and that he is wrong.  Who is really right?
I think I've solved the problem of my swing?  I know, always be skeptical of this claim. I've never been able to understand having a smooth transition at the top, but I think I might have some insight.  I have been jerking the club downwards prematurely during my backswing; it just doesn't work if I do that.  Instead, think of an amusement park ride called "the Fireball" or "Super Loops".  Please see the following link on YouTube.         Notice how when the vehicle...
