The caddies were in a cart while the players walked. The caddies brought the clubs over and you could tell the players were having a good time with it by sending them back to the cart to get another club fairly often.
I recently played 9 holes at a fairly easy par 35 course and started just behind a group of 4. 2 were dressed in masters caddies outfits and even had a quiet sign that their buddies made them hold up at every green and for tee shots. I can only assume they had lost a bet. What unique bets have you seen or participated in with golf?
I'm curious as to how often professional players control trajectory and what situations they choose to do so. In addition, I've been wondering the same about shaping the ball. Do most players just play a stock shot, say a high draw for 99% of shots? Or do players intentionally fade/draw the ball into various greens or off the tee to avoid certain trouble? In the wind, are players simply staying with a stock shot or hitting a stinger shot all day?
Usually if I'm hooking the ball I can open my clubface a bit and it results in a push-draw, or if you open it too far a straight push or push fade (assuming an in to out path). You could try that but definitely listen to mvmac/iacas if they have any suggestions. They seem particularly good at understanding causes of various problems and how to fix them.
Hi, I'm a reasonably new golfer (been playing since late last summer) and usually shoot around 90. I have come across shawn clement's instruction on youtube. I'm particularly interested to hear thoughts on his swing method and how it compares to the methods taught by 5SK. It seems like it has a lot in common (Maybe even has all 5SK but have not looked at it entirely) with these methods. Examples: Large hip turn rather than the method some instructors use of limiting the...
You should post a video of your swing. There are multiple causes for low ball flight and as a beginner I'm sure there are other issues with your swing. I believe the correct forum section to post it in is member swings and will allow better players to help you out. Also, it's probably a good idea to take a few lessons at some point (either in person or through an online service like evolr). Until you are able to get do either, I would suggest looking at the 5 simple keys...
I'm interested
I started playing golf 6 months ago and have steadily gotten better. I generally score in the low 90s but had the oddest experience today. I went out to play a round and the first 3 holes were some of the worst holes I have ever played. I triple bogeyed the first hole before struggling through 2 more holes (and carding at least a 10 on each of them). It was almost as if I had forgotten how to swing a golf club. I duffed every tee shot, iron shots, pitch shots, chip shots,...
 If you can name a regular on the PGA tour who had not put in 10,000 hours by the time they got on tour I will be shocked. I do not believe your assertion that a talented individual whom spends 3,000 practicing will automatically be better than an average person who put in 10,000 hours. I grew up playing baseball and I watched talented individuals whom never practiced be fairly successful into high school. By the end of high school, I watched kids who had been...
You posted this in another thread while claiming something entirely different in this thread. So which is it? Were you put in advanced classes because you were so much better than the other students or did you struggle? Are you about to turn pro or are you struggling with it? You're claim that hours of practice don't matter is ludicrous. If you are struggling, perhaps that's why. You don't get better at something by putting in subpar effort. Social skills, grammar, math...
