My thoughts - I feel I have too much hip slide and not enough turn or extension.

Thanks,

Adam

Hey smartass it's +3.4 not 3.5-Thats on the better side of scratch-And you missed the BRIGHT RED TEXT that tells you things to do, and the BIG TEXT about the rules for posting in this forum, that says not to make a practice swing, and post it? You want people here to help you when you cant even read?[quote name="robe983" url="/t/70149/my-swing-robe983#post_901348"] And don't bother posting in my thread... 30+ years in the golf industry and you're a 3.5?  Give it up pal.

Get mad about it, I said I missed that.  Take the thread down then tough guy...  Jesus...

I see nothing about a practice swing (below), and I followed the template.  My bad, glad I could get you worked up though, once again... 30+ years and scratch is what you have to show for it?  ew.

This is a template for a new "My Swing" thread.

  1. Title the thread "My Swing (username)" where "username" is your username.
  2. Answer the questions below.
  3. EMBED your videos below that. Just click the "video" icon in the toolbar to embed your videos.
  4. Delete all of this red text before posting. Make sure the title is correct.

No worries, Robe.  Just post another one with you hitting the ball.  It will be easier for the guys on here to help you out.

Look, here's the deal. Phil said "you can't follow directions" (which is true), then said "nobody is going to give you feedback on that" (which is also true). You reacted aggressively - you cursed, you told him to fix his attitude, etc.

Delete all of this red text before posting. Make sure the title is correct.

That's what you failed to do, along with the "practice swing" thing. I agree that it's not a big deal. We often fix these things for people. But when it was pointed out - and I realize there's no "tone of voice" or anything - you reacted aggressively. Far more aggressively than the comment that prompted your reaction.

I see nothing about a practice swing (below), and I followed the template.  My bad, glad I could get you worked up though, once again... 30+ years and scratch is what you have to show for it?  ew.

FWIW, you also missed this, which is pretty clear:

Clicking that would have taken you here: http://thesandtrap.com/t/38240/my-swing-video-threads-rules-please-read .

Pay attention to #4 and the postscript (P.S.):

Incidentally, most PGA Tour players are +4 or +5. I don't care how long you're playing - if you're scratch, you're pretty damn good, and if you're better than scratch, you're really good. Your insults are… ignorant at best.

So I now have:

  • A member who is being overly aggressive.
  • A member who is creating headaches for myself and other moderators.
  • A member who cannot be bothered to follow the rules.

Frankly, I'm not sure what to do. I'm not a big fan of deleting posts - it's a form of lying - and you've already said you're leaving, so it doesn't appear there's much to be gained. Perhaps you'll grow as a person and realize that you were out of line, but I'd estimate the odds of that as relatively thin.

I've deleted the red text from your first post. It's bright red so people READ it, but to those who don't need to read it (i.e. everyone but the OP), it's annoying.

Thanks, I appreciate it.  Like I said, first time poster and I missed that part.  I'll get a new video at the range and post again tonight.

They weren't insults?  They were truth, if I spent 30 years doing something I'd expect my self to be a lot better than scratch.  Sorry thats just my expectation level though.  Like I said, i'll repost later.  And for you to say that his initial statement wasn't aggressive? You're just assuming and taking sides... shows your maturity, sir.

Take care.

That's not an insult.

Nor is that.

And now you're insulting me, so now you're in the Penalty Box for three days. Please use the time to reflect on how you could have been calmer and less insulting/aggressive.

P.S. +3.4 is way, way, way better than scratch. Especially for someone who is almost certainly 50 or 60.

    • 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open Discussion
      Actually, they mentioned today that it's an environmental requirement imposed by the government; local, state or federal, they weren't sure.
    • Steel vs Graphite generic question
      Spin is OK though? I could be flipping a little but I may need work on Key #3 to get that launch down to where it needs to be... Because I SHOULD be carrying my 7-iron 160-165 with that speed.  Maybe the motor is fine (the shaft), just need to work on in-line impact more...
    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
