The Dutchies loved Florida

4 posts in this topic

Hello this is Piet van Ammers and joined the sandtrap a few weeks ago, just before we went with 6 guys to Florida to Play some Golf.

I am 64 years old and get in touch with golf some 50 years ago, beeing a caddie at the Noordwijkse Golfclub in the Netherlands. After 35 years none golfing I picked it up again 15 years ago and still enjoy the game verry much.

I married Coby 41 years ago have 3 kids (2 sons and one doughter) and 3 grandchildren. The first present I bought for the grandkids was en set of clubs and I hope they are going to like it in the future

Thanks to the Sandtrap we recently met a few verry nice and also golf playing American guys. I am sure that David aka David in Florida, is a member her. I am thankfull that he played against us and showed us where the topcourses in this region are

I have been in Florida for 16 days and played with pleasure 23 rounds of golf.

It is difficult to explain that I did not see any Disney park or an other park to friends in Holland

Hope to come back next year and play again some nice rounds with our American friends as David, Daron, John and others.

All the best,

We're already looking forward to next year.......but I've gotta say, after 2weeks, I got REAL tired of watching Piet drive it dead straight right down the middle of the fairway, and get up and down from everywhere. ;-)

Ha,ha,ha, David, its only because I cannot hit the ball as far as you, so I have to do something to stay in the match.

    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      I have been working with an Evolvr coach for a while and he has not addressed those concerns at a2 and in fact called my position a perfect example and something he would show to other students.  So your instructions do not match up for me.   It is frustrating to hear you make comments like that when they don't match up with what my coach says.   I still don't get why it matters if it goes from shallow to slightly steeper on the downswing.   Look at Furyks swing, is he hitting all the key positions?  If I hit A5 to A6 why does A3 matter anymore? If Robert Rock had the same angle at 5 as he does at 3 he would miss the ball too..  What is the difference in steep to shallow?  OR shallow to steep, but still outside the ball?  
    • Anyone Else Use 'Good Shots' to Measure How Good a Round Was?
      No because it's pretty rare I hit a really good shot. Many are happy accidents. Good is relative to par for me. If I gave myself a chance it's a decent shot. But most don't end up as I conceived it in my mind and I know that in my planning that it's a big target. I think in certain areas, miss right to get up and down if I know going for the green brings trouble into play. If it ends up right of the green and leaves me a pitch uphill it's good whether I hit it to my number for that club or chunk it 15 yards short.
    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      @pumaAttack I didn't tell you to "model" your swing after Ko's, I was giving you an example of someone that is doing the opposite of what you're doing. Face looking "down" at 2, standing the shaft up at 3, this will make the shallowing move a lot more natural.  Exactly, you have to consider the entire motion. When the swing goes "shallow to steep" consistency is going to be hard to achieve because of the compensations you have to make with the sweetspot. Yes at 6 you may be pointing the shaft outside the ball but it's also steeper than you were at 3, these things matter. If you had the same shaft alignment at 5 that you do at 3 you'd miss the ball, so you in order to make contact you have to steepen the shaft. While the shaft is still outside the ball at 5 the sweetspot is going to move differently than if you were "steep to shallow". @pumaAttack I wasn't aware that you were still on Evolvr or that they had already made recommendations, I'm sure your instructor has mentioned the backswing and that it's part of their gameplan to address it. I was just trying to help, you mentioned you are trying to shallow the shaft on the downswing, I saw where you were on the downswing so I figured I'd post.
    • My Swing (Jeremie Boop)
      Forgot to post my DTL video. Nothing new here really unfortunately. Main positive is I'm still doing a pretty decent job of keeping from cupping my left wrist on the backswing because it's pretty flat at the top. That's nice to see since it's something I struggled with for a long time. Thing is I've no clue what I did to fix that.  
    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      Played well at Washtenaw Golf Club (formally Polo Fields - Washtenaw).  Short game was spot on and posted a 6.9 differential.  No birdies, lots of pars, a few bogies and a disaster on the short par 3 #12 where I had a double par 6.
