  1. Howdy, A practice facility with a fairway bunker is few and far between.  Unfortunatly I end up in fairway bunkers once every couplee of rounds, and they sure are a tough shot. So would anyone know of a facility in the Orlando,FL area? -Dan
  2. Question, would a nice tacky grip give someone the confidence to relax their kungfu grip on the club? My brother holds the club to darn hard, he needs some motivation. Or a swift kick in the read!
  3. Play or Practice, which do you do more?

    I try to practice more, but sometimes i'll catch myself playing quite often when I should be  on the pitching/putting green.
  4. Tiger's Death Stare at Alex Miceli

    Tell us how you rreally feel?
  5. Heading to my Golf Happy Place

    Never had the pleasure of visiting Lanai when I lived on da Rock. You like one island native, yeah? I hope go back dakine bumbai, i mss dat place. Shootz! Btw I'm a haole so I never sounder right talking pidgin.  Man i miss coco puffs from liliha bakery.
  6. Srixon Q star

    I picked up a box one day because they didn't have anymore B330 RX-s in stock.  They weren't a bad ball, personally I just prefer something a little softer. They seemed a little hard to me, then again I may have been drinking that day? Kidding
  7. The Stack and Tilt Golf Swing

    I watched the video and it helped me a tad bit, but i think it destroyed my prior swing style. Sadly now everytime i blast an iron, i come down very steep and dig a two foot whole in front of where the ball was. I still get a solid shot, but feel like im loosing distance and enery expenditure? /shurgs
  8. 3 Wood vs Driver off the tee box...

    For me its the opposite. Fairway woods are the only club I can't hit in my bag. Even off the tee i think i hit my 3 out to in and slice, where my driver is straight down the ol'fairway every time. Odd!
  9. "The Short Game Bible" by Dave Pelz

    The short game bible certainly has helped me a ton. it really solidified the need for spending a lot of time practicing my short game and in turn has urged me to spend more time with my putting. Dave's technical savvy also helped me understand the ins and outs around the green. I give it 3.5 out of 4 stars.
  10. "The Putting Bible" by Dave Pelz

    Your welcome and forgive all my typos. It was late Also, when i said ignorance, i just meant without knowledge. Somehow here in america due to certain social circumstances, the word "ignorance" is often protrayed as something derogatory. I was just trying to share what i had learned from someone as well. Have a great thursday/friday. -Dan
  11. "The Putting Bible" by Dave Pelz

    Quote: Originally Posted by Big Lex I think one of the Pelz "bible" books explains this. Random thoughts on Pelz: I don't know if I'd call him a "guru." In the general connotation of that term, he's an anti-guru. He's not someone who sits in the lotus position chanting eternal truths bestowed upon him by some ethereal deity, while pilgrims sit at his feet writing them down. In sanskrit gu means light and ru means darkness. All a guru is is a teracher that enlightnes someone and takes them from the darkness(ignorance of something) ot the light (knowledge). So anyone who is a teacher is a guru. The stuff you said,(even though you were probably joking) is just western ignorance. That being said, i did read hiss short game bible. It had lots of great tips and information and it certainly helped my shortgame. -Dan
  12. Going through withdrawal

    Where do you live on Oahu? I use to live off piikoi. I left Oahu a little over a year ago.(One of my biggest mistakes, but then again I would have never fallen in love with golf if i stayed) I didn't play golf when i lived there, but my buddy use to play a lot at a small course up near schofield.
  13. Hello from Long Island

    Welcome, where ya from on LI? I grew up there.  Which course do you work at?
  14. scotty cameron vs nike method putter

    True story. Putters are all different and very personal. I had a powerbuilt $40 putter that i liked and rolled better than my Oddysey White Ice. I know have a cameron del mar and sometimes i still think i like that powerbuilt better
  15. Need help buying mizuno clubs

    I have the JPX pro's. I like them a lot. They seem to launch the ball something serious compared to the R11 irons I was using prior.
