Speaking of stopping half way, I got some of my best reads today by walking halfway between the ball and hole and just taking a look. I was playing in an informal 2 man scramble with some buds for the grand prize of beers and dogs! On the very first hole, an easy par 5, we're putting for eagle. I putt first, and 3 feet from the hole we think the ball is in. A foot from the hole it breaks right and I graze the edge.
I mark, and stand aside while my buddy putts. I'm about halfway and from there I can clearly see the subtle little mound in the green that the cup was cut in. You could not see it from behind the ball. Believe me, we checked! I've long been a proponent of letting my feet inform my brain, but if your eyes can't see everything then your feet can't feel everything. They have to work together to get the best read.
I'm not sure how this applies to my response? I said if there were something free I'd use it vs build it and, if I wanted to build something just for the heck of it, I would expect that to be free or almost free as well. This is true, is it not?
I don't consult on how to build internet forums . . . why would I know anything about what free forum software comes with hosting servers? I assume there is some.
@mvmac thank you so much for taking the time to take a look at my swing and for the feedback. I really appreciate this! Your link to the Grip post was super helpful. I'm really looking forward to trying out that drill in that video too!
Thanks again :)
Great comment, Dave! I just love cashiers who have no idea how to make change. God help them if they enter the wrong amount "cash tendered"!
When I could play this game a little bit, after the round I would grab a beer or pop, grab a seat, and with my scorecard go over the round hole by hole, and shot by shot. That's the only way to really understand what you're doing out there.
