@freedrop's OT Drivel and Stuff

Ok, we could go on forever,but I am satisfied with my point of view as you are with yours.

This has been interesting, to say the least. I'm curious. You're new to the site. Can you share with us your name, credentials, experience, and handicap? Thanks.

Or just a face on video of his pitching method.

Why are we wasting our time with this guy?  He clearly does not know what he is talking about and will never be convinced.  He makes lame inferences and declares victory.  He cannot "see" that actual technique and feel are two different things. It reminds me of the scene in The Poseidon Adventure when the survivors split up. @freedrop will go to the bow with the other doomed passengers because some guy in a uniform said so instead of using his own eyes to see that the waters surface is up and not down.  Arguing with him is not worth the electrons.

I don't presume to know how you feel about anything.

I'm satisfied in my opinion of your knowledge, and in the success I've had teaching this method to others, and in how pros actually hit the shots discussed.

If it can be repeated ,then it's golf sound.

@freedrop , I'd still like to hear a little about your background and golf game, just to help put your posts into perspective. Thanks.

Not David, but yes you could. As a golfer we would expect you to be truthful. 99% of us have let it be known how we golf, what our stats are, how some of us have lousy swings, and that we trust the TST members to be honest in their opinion of what they post, by not offering any info. re: yourself, I for one tend to think your a wanna be golf analyst and just spewing stuff you've found on other sites, or the GC. Am I wrong..?

That's the first truth you have written so far, your posts have no value.

What I am writing I believe and have experienced, it is backed up by video instruction by tour pros which yes I have followed and studied.From the reception I am getting I feel no need to provide anything else.

And several people have shown you very clearly that what they say they do is not what they actually do.

You were right about the one thing: you've contributed nothing of actual value (except the marginal value of bumping this thread so others can read and form their own opinions and perhaps learn a thing or two and lower their scores).

We have a student coming to us from eight hours away - a student who can afford to go to anyone - to learn more about the short game. Again, I'm satisfied that we're doing our job of making golfers better.

You were asked a direct question, @freedrop , and we value honesty and integrity here, but you cannot or will not answer. That says a lot.

Is 27.1 your true HC..? If it is, I would be very careful about offering advice to others re: their swings, ect. I would however be more than happy to have Erik, Mike, or any of the low handicappers offer advice, and would think what they say has more merit than someone who cant break 95.

I'd just like some insight into the depth of that experience. I think I've been very forthright with you. Why the hesitancy to return the courtesy?

I think a moderator added that. It was 17 for awhile IIRC. It was "??" before that.

This site asks that you add your proper handicap to your profile :

Please do. Golf is a game of integrity and honesty, and oftentimes advice is customized for the person who is asking the question or participating in the conversation. If you do not have an official handicap index, approximate one. The only acceptable answers for your handicap index are a valid number or "Pro." Members caught lying about their handicap index will be viewed as dishonest scoundrels and will be dealt with in an appropriate manner.

That @freedrop hasn't is yet another indication of his attitude towards his fellow golfers and the requests made of users of this site.

Edit: None of this was even remotely on topic, so it's been moved here.
