Hit Down Dammit.

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone bought the videos and/or dvds? Would like to get some feedback on it. Looks like a pretty good teaching. But the videos are almost 90 bucks so it's kind of a plunge without hearing something about it.

Yes, I just did my first set of DVD Drills yesterday.
My background:
-Started Golf mid 20's

-Got down to a 12 handicap early thirties (played 3x week)
-Hit a ball with no divot (when I'm on, very long and high draw)
-Huge overswing, past parallel
- hit off of mats - Caused me to not hit down

-Had kids

-Now play 3x per month. I still try and "scoop" the ball which needs incredible timing, which i don't have anymore b/c lack of playing time
-found Hit Down Dammit through web searches in trying to make a divot

Initial thoughts:

-Buy the dvds on ebay for 1/2 price. There is a lot of duplicated content across the 4 dvds

-making a divot feels weird, but I'm making good contact
-could be a good way for me to shorten my swing (I've been trying for 2 years)
-Take a lot of 1/2 swings and follow the drills
-I do think that 90% of average golfers do not "hit down", they try and scoop.
-My wrist is a little sore, but some ice fixed it right up

Hope that helps.

I'm new to golf but according to my studies when the ball is on the ground hitting down on the ball, the ball leaving, then taking a divot is the only way to hit a good golf shot. I have a marker next to my ball when I'm on the range and I work to make sure I take my divot past where the ball sat, never before it. You're supposed to swing down at an angle somewhere between 15 and 20 degrees.

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Every customer is different, some know exactly what they want and expect you to execute their vision.  Others want more consultation and input from the designers as to what others are doing or what trends are on the rise.  Another factor is maintenance, how much time is required to keep the site updated, can the business maintain the site on their own or must that be outsourced, etc. There are numerous reasons why a business would redesign their site, such as; The business has undergone some fundamental changes that they want reflected in a new website The cost of maintaining the current site is too high The provider of their data has changed the feeds or discontinued certain elements of the data. Users have complained about how the site works The site is outdated or dependent on outdated technology or servers. They want a site that is "responsive" meaning the same site works on desktop, tablet and smart phones. I've never done work for a business that said they want to make their site worse, less user friendly, less functional or more frustrating for their customers to use.  My guess is that given the popularity of sites like GolfNow, that some standards were created for how the data would be distributed and updated to the GolfNow like websites from the different courses to make it easier for them all to get the data (the same thing happened to the airline industry).  The change to the backend likely warranted the changing of the front end as well. In some cases compromises must be made.  I've redesigned sites that were written in HTML, PHP and jQuery which are not easy for end users to maintain and update themselves.  The client wanted a responsive site that they could maintain easily on their own.  I suggested we develop the new site using Joomla, Drupel or WordPress as those platforms provided them with everything they requested.  They ultimately ended up with a WordPress site that was responsive and very functional but because of the platform certain nuances of the old site were lost. Users initially complained but we worked out some issues and over time they appreciated the more frequent updates and ability to easily view the site on their iPads and cell phones.  Website redesign like life is full of compromises.
    • Shorts On the PGA Tour (Updated 2013, 2016)
      I don't think the PGA Tour's stance on this has only to do with "tradition." Ultimately the PGA Tour is a member-run organization. If they strongly wished for shorts, they'd vote to allow it. That they've not done so speaks volumes, IMO.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      I heard something on the radio along the lines of New Hampshire having "super delegates" that will vote for Clinton regardless of yesterday's vote.  As far as Trump goes, my bottom line  is that he simply is not electable. Moderates, women and minorities aren't going to vote for that guy.    
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Just to clarify, I consider myself a committed Trump supporter, I like him. I am not a conservative in the traditional sense. Like anyone, I don't agree with every position that my candidate stands for, I do, however, agree on his main points re: immigration. 
    • Putting downhill vs uphill (2x distance of downhill length) poll
      Yep.  The first hole at TPC looks like they buried an elephant.  I lost a playing partner on that green. The course in the above posts I believe is The Bayou Club.  Checking tonight.  Not sure the hole number yet, but the green is next to the road.  If that's the course, I'll work out the hole number.  Their scorecards don't show hole layout, so I'll have to walk through the holes on the card. BTW, there is (or was) a hole at the Corry Pa muni (North Hills) that could have a 225 foot putt.  That's over 70 yards!  They don't make like that any more! Plus, the Links of Lake Bernadette has a shared green.  Haven't played there in a while, but as I recall the green was "U" shaped with bushes in the "U".  Had to putt to the bottom of the "U", then back on the other side.  Need to Google that later. St Andrews has shared greens but I don't recall any being like that.
