Difficult question. When I picked up the game, I could be euforic when I hit a good shot, and get mad when I hit a bad one. I played with a nice women and she pointed it out to me. She didn't like it. So I quickly learned to controll it. I also tend to get a bit nervous, when my playing partners are chitchatting and (in my view) are losing pace with the group in front. Or the group behind us has to waite a bit to long (again in my view). You can take youre time, but we...
Probably a certainty that he won't make the cut. Costly trip.
I recently incorporated an acceleration from the top of my backswing. Trying to hit harder. At first I needed to find my balance. To me, it seems after impact my body is turned through the swing, some kind of centrifugical force. In the begining it felt unnatural, a bit affraid to hit it harder, now that I have adepted more and more quickly. I played my best round ever last Saturday, a round of 85. I notice crisp contact, better and more disctance control, more disctance....
A typical iron.   My first question.    What makes the old Ben Hogan iron so special? I sometimes get the feeling the only reason those irons are suprior it is because mr. Hogan's name was on it. What made them special? The building proces? The way that they were forged? The type of metal they used?   Secondly.   I like to see those irons in a shop. I am not sure about the quality. If it comes to forged irons, my suggestion would be to buy a Japanese forged iron....
I entered an aimpoint expres clinic. 2 Horus in the drizzil. I was a bit sceptical, but it blew me away. The clinic was very well presented, easy to understand. I am sure it will shave some scores of the chart!
Last week I played with a pro and he wanted me to make a practise swing as hard as I could. I was afraid that I would loose mij balance, would be out of control etc. The funny thing happened when I swung the club, I really came forward as in lineair, all my weight on my left side. I pulled myself to the left. My practise swing was as hard as I could, but my real swing was just a bit slower, but still much faster than before. Yet I was in control, much to my surprise. I...
Not sure how it will translate, but the saying 'one bird in the sky doesn't make summer is here'.   I have have played a couple of rounds recentely. Basically what I try to do, when hitting the driver, is the following:   1. I tee the ball a tiny bit higher 2. pick my target line; 3. aim my clubface a tiny bit right of the target line; 4. try to put the ball more forward in my stance, left toe instead of left heel; 5. pre set my hip a bit to the left; 6. breathe...
Always listen to good advice. Bought a compressor   Other question, should I use it to get the old grips off, or use a knife. I heard that using a compressor might blow up the grips and could possibly harm you. I always used a special knife.
Uhm, no it does not. I think you should get your info straight. Ah well. 
 I do not know the exact page in the LSW book, but is was written somewhere. It totally opened my eyes and I am using it time after time. But there are a lot of stuburn golfers out there...
