Do Any of You Know This Guy?

19 posts in this topic

Yeah, so that's me.  Short arms through impact, with zero extension of the arms.  Looking like this it makes it VERY difficult to do anything other than swipe at the ball.  For me, I think it's caused by my penchant for goat humping.  Arms have to shorten if I'm humping or else the club will slam into the ground.

Anyone else have trouble with the T-Rex arms?

Yup.

Thanks to the magic of 240fps I'm also painfully aware that I look like a man backing away from rabid racoon at impact.

I hope you don't wear those shorts with a gaping hole in the ass unless you actually have a tail...

You're a few shades of purple away from @Golfingdad.

I hope its a little cool for our outing in a couple of weeks, and that Mike brings the camera.  I am going to blow your mind (and @cipher 's and @Ernest Jones ') when I show up in a different sweater.

"Wait ... GD owns TWO sweaters?!?!?!?!?"  You damn right!!

@colin007 you should start a swing thread!!!  (But don't wear those shorts.  Also, don't be green.)

Are you bending too much in your knees or putting too much bend in your waist/hips? It sounds like that could be an issue that causes your "arm crunch". Also, being a T-Rex would kind of suck. You can't make a bed, you can't play golf, etc. Lol.

I actually did, earlier this year. Good example of my goat humping skillz...

I went to the range today and just told myself to extend the arms all the way through, it seemed to feel different, but without video I can't know if there was any change... I like the mental image of throwing the big rock as far and high as I can, that's what I was picturing.

Funny because we call the guys that never buy a round T-Rex because their short little arms can never get to their pockets to pull their wallets out!

I've got a friend like that... Either he doesn't pull the wallet out, or he's only got $100s and doesn't want to break one.

    • Standing on Tee Marker for Aiding a Swing
      One little point.  Tee markers identifying the teeing ground are deemed to be fixed.  They are not obstructions until after the player makes his first stroke from the teeing ground. The only thing I can think of that might be a violation is if the tee marker moved while making his stroke.  See  D13-2/1.1  I'm not sure fairly taking your stance includes putting your foot on a tee marker.   13-2/1.1   Player Attempts to Take Stance Fairly But Improves Line of Play by Moving Interfering Growing Object   Q.A player's ball lies under the branch of a tree. In attempting to take his stance fairly, the player improves his line of play by moving the branch with his body. Before playing, he realizes he could have taken his stance without moving the branch. He abandons his stance and the branch returns to its original position or is returned to its original position by the player. The player then approaches the ball from a different direction, takes his stance without disturbing the branch and makes his stroke. What is the ruling? A.There is no penalty. When fairly taking his stance the player is required to take his stance in the least intrusive manner that results in the minimum improvement in the position or lie of the ball, area of intended stance or swing or line of play. However, as the branch moved as a result of the player's attempt to take his stance fairly and was returned to its original position before the stroke was made, there is no penalty. Any doubt as to whether the branch returned to its original position should be resolved against the player. The same principle would apply to fixed artificial objects (e.g., a boundary stake) if the position or lie of the ball, area of intended stance or swing or line of play is improved as a result of the player's attempt to take his stance fairly but the object is returned to its original position before the player makes a stroke.
    • Your best golfing bargain
      I've scored many ridiculous Craigslist/Goodwill deals but my best is a Par Aide Master golf ball washer with stand and a Par Aid standard pin (19th flag) and cup with a mounting base all brand new for $25. I actually felt a little guilty driving away after that one!
    • What's the Best Product You Own? (Golf Edition)
      I bought a cheapo MacGregor 64 deg. wedge back in the early 90's. Thought it would be fun to chip over furniture in the house. Well that club has never left my bag since. Just bought a duplicate just in case.http://www.ebay.com/sch/Golf-Clubs/115280/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=macgregor 64 wedge&LH_Complete=1&rt=nc&_trksid=p2045573.m1684
    • Birdie Ball
      I take one of those rubber tee things that go in the range mats, turn it upside down onto a broken wooden tee to hold it up straight.
    • Grips really matter??
      I think that with a soft grip like Winn you squeeze the club too hard. Firm is better and I would error on the side of larger than smaller. Smaller grips cause hooks for me. I play Ping NTS wrap grips white color code which is one size larger than I was fit for. With the right grip you sometimes won't even need to wear a glove.
