My local driving range is Awesome

11 posts in this topic

Went to hit a bucket of balls this morning at my closest grass driving range which is in Oakland. It's called Metropolitan Golf Links. It's the official practice range of the top rated University of California golf team. Those guys are always out there and it's cool to see how well they hit ball after ball. Today it was awesome for a new reason. It's packed so I'm walking down the line looking for an open space. I spot a tall blonde on the range absolutely destroying ball after ball. After closer inspection of her Nike Tour Bag I spot the name Amanda Blumenherst. She's out there alone just hitting balls with regular guys like myself. Turns out she's married to Oakland A's first baseman Nate Freiman. But anyway I never looked at her as hot before, but but she's dropped about 25lbs and she's STUNNING in person. I was hitting two stalls behind her and while she was changing clubs I asked her if I could snap a pic of her bag so my buddies would believe me when I tell them that I saw her. She smiled and said of course. [IMG][IMG] [/IMG][/IMG]

and the range looks pretty good too!

Is it just the angle or is her right leg too straight?

Her name reminds me of Erica Blasburg who died 3 years ago.

For me, a straight right leg means that I begin the downswing with a right hip pivot and not a weight shift to the left hip begun by a right knee drive.   Straight right leg does keep the right side higher in the backswing and maybe makes it easier to hit down on the ball versus sweeping it.   IMO.

Nobody said a "straight" right leg. Straight is a binary state. Her leg isn't straight, so I don't know how it can be "too straight." That's like being half pregnant.

And you're listed as a 20 index… virtually every PGA Tour player decreases flex in the backswing of his trail knee. That's all. Read the other thread and participate there if you want.

Checked out the website. Those are very reasonable rates given how well maintained it looks. Same for the short game area. I pay just about the same... for mats.

Feel the jealously from the concrete jungle.

I like Metro's driving range; it's probably the one of the best in the Bay. Could almost say that it maintained well enough to be an annual tour driving range. Obviously, good enough for Cal's golf team (I think they have their own private short game practice area too with Cal flags on each hole).

The course is nicely maintained, but being that it's a links course, I don't play very well there with all the wind.

    • 1 Iron Golf Clubs
      So...finally broke 90 the other day....would have been better but for cored and sanded greens. Never struck the ball so well. Have been trialing the "Bobby Clampett" Impact Zone training, and focusing on a point forward of the ball...working a treat so far and my irons are way more solid. Time will tell whether it is a flash in the pan or a good move, but the range session are very encouraging. Played since xmas at all?
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Notice this comment ;)  Yea but he's been doing that since he's been in office. At least he hasn't wavered away from his agenda for how ever long he's been in office. He's not going to pass it. He's going to try.  Trump doesn't have an agenda except to his own ego. He doesn't care about America. He doesn't care about the American people. He's uses to screwing as many people over as possible. Heck, why not add Washington to the list.  For me I think Trump just sat back and thought, "you know what I can win the presidency." Then he's going about doing it. It's all about vanity nothing else.   
    • How Do You Decide Where to Play Golf
      This is a more difficult question for me to answer than it once was, so I selected "Other".   If I play locally, then I only have a couple of choices.  But this year I rejoined the Men's Club at my old home course, so that has now become my current home course even though it's a 2½ hour drive (about 150 miles).  I also play several other courses just as I feel like it, no one course by price because I can get varying deals at 30 or 40 Colorado courses with my Avid Golfer Passport.   A lot depends on how far I feel like driving, it may depend on when my brother drives down from Idaho to play for a few days, and it just depends on what I feel like.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Isn't Bernie doing the same thing?  He's leading a witch hunt against big business and the wealthy.  Do you really believe he's going to pass a 90% income tax on the wealthy, outlaw guns, provide better free healthcare, increase the minimum wage to $15+ country wide and provide free college to everyone? They are both snake oil sales people appealing to the lowest common denominators of their parties.  Bernie may be more sincere about his beliefs, but that could just mean he's crazier too.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      But that stat goes directly to Tiger's lack of longevity (to this point in time).  If he hadn't had the issues that he's had, he wouldn't have missed all of those recent starts.  I don't see how you can diss Jack for being competitive over a longer period, and then still making many starts (which attracted more money to the events just by his presence) after his competitive career was past.  I don't know what the numbers work out to age for age to the point when Tiger was no longer starting in Majors, but that has to be a more telling number.
