Swing #3 gets close, Swing #4 and beyond are hitting the top. I Love it, but I have been known to hit a very high shot (especially when I am trying to hit lown under tree limbs with a five iron or 3 wood) so I think this wonderful invention needs to be at least 2 feet taller. So I would probably put it on 2 4x4s to raise it higher. It saves a lot of space and you don't need a whole bucket of balls. Brilliant.

What happens when you shank one sideways and put it through the drywall and into the tv in the next room?

According to the website, it will come with a net to guard against stray golf shots, and then says an excuse about other golf nets have the same problem with shanking.

I like this product, but traditional nets don't have as much of a issue with shanking simply because they're a lot wider. Adding a net to the side of this product wouldn't seem prevent balls from hitting the wall behind it unless the net was *very* stiff.

Price is out now. $620.00. For now you get a 20% discount so $496.00 but still that is quite steep for a net.

I am a bit sad about this news. I was hoping it would be much more affordable. Maybe someone will try it out and tell me it is worth it.

. It's funny because it is true! Alas I took an old timers advice to go driver off the deck when it really needs to stay low. Or, try to hit a high shot! ;-)

yeah, it's too bad things have to cost so much

I hang a moving blanket (big thick padded blanket) in the garage and hit into it...I do move the cars out of the garage however!! You could hang another on each side for side protection.

A good cheap way to get in some practice

I had a moving blanket and the ball went right through it. Bout a net for $70 at the big box golf store. http://www.golfsmith.com/product/30032073/hank-haney-monster-net?scode=SPNG99VK&cm;_mmc=Shopping%20Engines-_-GoogleBase-_-xx-_-xx&ci;_src=14110944&ci;_sku=30032073%20N/A&tcode;=fr_home

I picked up one of these after buying a $100 net last year and shooting balls through it in a short amount of time.

This net is high quality and performs as advertised.  I decided to just spend the money once instead of buying a new cheap net every year forever.

Wow, that's steep. I could buy a $100 net for the next 8 years for that price.

cool - I had this exact idea and was just too lazy to build it from scratch

However, I just hit through my tarp, so I need a better idea.  Likely a pair of blankets and then hang them VERY loosely so they are more passive in killing the ball speed.

On the plus side, I was working on adding a lot more energy into the ball (via my release timing plus extending my backswing).....  Apparently making progress there.

So I got that going for me.

    • How do I organize a charity tournament to be a raging success?
      26 and a stroke? Holy smokes. Very sorry to hear that.  I have no idea how to organize a tournament but I have played in my share. The best ones are scrambles where you can organize your own team. The outcome has rarely ever mattered to us as long as we were well fed. Find a local restaurant (usually a bbq place) that wants to help you out and give a discount for advertising and spend your money there. Everyone will love to come for a good meal. Some nice prizes and maybe a raffle with some local companies offering you something if you are able to convince them it is worth it to give something to the cause.  Another thing I have seen work well is a silent auction at the end with donated items. I donated airline miles of which I have tons and 100,000 miles went for $205. Free gift for me and the cause got $205. 
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Haha - I get a couple of reputation points for a post and then go and have a blow up hole. Good drive, left myself 145 in down hill (8i), aimed #deadcenter, pulled 2 shots 25 yards left out of bounds, made 9 (+5) in a 9 hole round of (+11). A better way to avoid blow up holes - play stableford!
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Come on now, that's a bit uncalled for in Bernies case.  His political ideals might be way left, but he is at least honest and virtuous.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      I'll have to examine your other post closer. That's a good point to consider about the expansion to Continental Europe. Largely explains the poor showing of UK & Ireland in the 60's with many top tier European players not eligible. But considering the 200 million U.S. population base to 63 million in the U.K. & Ireland at the time, the latter did surprisingly well if population base was all that matters. IMO an established competitive golfing culture matters in producing elite players too. Those same European players excluded from Ryder Cup were always eligible for the Majors. The Ryder Cup is also a limited field event. It concentrates the 12 top players of the European Tour. From what I've read, depth of field is still stronger for the 'typical' PGA event, though some non-major Euro events are now stronger than some of the 'minor' PGA events. That is a significant change in Euro competitiveness from the 60's. To some extent that 30% drop sounds like it could be due to simply more international players occupying slots in the fields. If the period you mention covers when majors started to use OWGR for automatic qualification that has some not insignificant inherent issues in terms of strength of field. Having a guaranteed start rather than having to qualify would certainly make for an easier decision to travel to the event. But I'm not arguing against the policy decision facilitating international competition with a little points boost just trying to point out that field strength may not have been as weak in Jack's day as you seem to think. Compared to his peers, which is really the only thing I think you can do without speculative nuance I agree there's no question he's the best golfer. I'm really just arguing that standouts of their caliber (so many more wins so many more majors) than typical players among already elite fields are so rare, that I expect they both represent near the achievable human pinnacle in golf talent, which I don't think really differs within a few generations. The nuances of comparison across eras is interesting to me so I'll debate relative points, but I'm against arguments undervaluing Jack's achievements against 'weak fields'. They both faced very stiff competition.   I'm not dissing Jack. I think his achievements are amazing. I also think the same of Tiger's record. IMO winning percentage per start in the Majors is a very significant stat and Tiger has that in his favor (they are both top 10 and within ~ 2% of each other's number). That number is not the official one for Jack though, I truncated his Major starts to end at age 47, which I think is a reasonable cutoff for competitiveness. If Tiger competes as long as Jack did his major win % (up to age 47) might stay about the same, increase, or decrease (more likely), but he certainly won't match the 18 Majors if he doesn't get like 22+ more major starts between now and age 47.

      Typically more bounce (or a "healthy" amount of bounce) helps in any condition.
