Forum Suggestion......

9 posts in this topic

Has it been thought of or suggested in the past that we have some sub-forums like under "golf talk" for regions? That way in case a group wants to plan an outing, share specials, or offer play suggestions it's a one stop shop? Also people traveling to those locations can ask questions or look up specials to help them out as well?

It could be like North Region (Wis, Minn, Ill, Mich, Iowa, Ind..... ect. or even go as far as doing individual states.

Just a thought......

I seen those, they don't appear to be utilized and you have to "join the group". I just thought maybe separate forums would be more visual.

We've had this discussion before, and I've given the same answers several times.

The U.S. is too big to make a "geographic" subset of forums useful at all. You'd either have too few (say, NY, OH, PA) or too many (Erie, PA, Pittsburgh, PA, Buffalo, NY, Meadville, PA, etc.). And people will be on the borderlines of many, or close enough to be near too many.

There's no feasible solution. Groups are the best option since at least you can create groups where there are golfers.

Groups can work quite well. Use the SoCal group as an example... since December we've met up as a group to play three separate times and are planning our fourth. At our first outing we had 10 players and this last one was nearly 20. I know that there is another group (NW PA/NE OH or something like that) that is doing the same thing.

The "Single Members in Seattle" group is full. It has a single member.

And don't forget to make the group open to anybody.  We've had members from Norcal, TX, and PA at our outings as well. :)

Thanks for the replies. I figured it was addressed at one time. There is a "hometown" section on another forum I use (ar15.com) and they break down by state. It makes it nice for organizing shoots, selling items and so on. I will set-up a group for Wisconsin and see how it goes.

Right, but for example I live closer to Columbus, and even Cincinnati, OH than I do to Philadelphia, PA. And Buffalo, and Rochester, and Syracuse, NY, too. Toledo. Heck, I almost live closer to Chicago than Philadelphia.

Breaking things down by states doesn't work very well, and even if we did, we'd have 50 little forums. Then bigger states need more forums so now we're at 80 or so, and we still haven't gotten anything outside of the United States, and people STILL have to pay attention to multiple regions.

Turns out it's much easier to create them "on the fly" with Groups, or just ask that people pay attention to thread titles or use the search fields. I think you're starting to see what I mean by how it's not terribly feasible. There are likely more golfers than fans of AR-15s. :)

    • Parsons Xtreme Golf, GoDaddy Founder Starts New Golf Company
      First time I had the 0311 7i in my hand, I look up at address and say, "How very Ping of them." My instructor, who is a dealer, looks up, smiles, and says, "Ya' think?" As you know, Parsons lured 2 senior Ping vets away to start his company.  The hybrids are also attractive, moreso in hand than in pics. Sound is solid yet feel at impact is still lively - an effective balance.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      Hi there! I also took a look at your swing. First, mvmac's response is stellar. Study that video and try to replicate the swing you see in his example video, placing emphasis on keeping your lower body more stable during the swing. Some golf basics: hitting behind the golf ball (ie a fat shot) is almost always the result of not getting your weight over to the left side at impact. By getting your weight over onto the left side before impact you will be promoting a slew of good things, like coming into the golf ball with the hands ahead of the ball at impact and the shaft leaning forward, all things that will promote hitting the ball first and then the ground, and hitting down on the ball.  In your swing what I saw was a tremendous amount of hip rotation in the back swing combined with a sway to the right side. At the top of the backswing your hips are so open and your body so far off the ball that its going to take an incresibly timed athletic move to get back to your address position and onto your left side prior to impact. Instead, think of the golf.swing as more of a rotary action. Your upper body turns away from the golf ball while your lower body tries to maintain the position you were in at address. As you wind the upper body back, try to feel like you are restricting the hips and teyinf to keep them in the same position as address. In actualityx the wonding back of the upper bidy will pull the hips back slightly and you should feel some tension, like your body has been wound back like a spring. From there the correct move is to do the opposite, rotate your hips to the left, shift your body weight onto your left side, and let the lower body and club fall onto the correct plane. From there you can swing hard and through the golf ball. A good drill is to practice the forgoing with 1/2 swing, pausing for a moment between the back swing and downswing. Hope this helps!  P.s. fatigue will always affect performance. If your arms feel tired and your focus is gone, its always best to move onto chipping/putting.
