    Ball Held by Inner Cup Liner, Ruling? (Pictures Inside)
    Just found this on twitter, and I was wondering what the correct ruling was.  Its a pretty amazing scenario.

    Thanks @SavvySwede , Going to put in some more time and try and figure some things out.  Got my clubs 2-man best ball match play this weekend, hopefully I find some consistency!

    I had a hour range session yesterday and I started to implement the flaring of my feet.  I noticed that I pushed a lot of balls to the right.  Any idea's on why the flaring of my feet would cause my ball to be pushed to the right? Thanks

    Thanks @mvmac , I appreciate the feedback.  Its nice to have a visual so I know where to begin on the range.  Also, my gloves tend to get shredded at the thumb, and a little at the palm.  Ill be experimenting with your grip advice as well.  Thanks again!

    Thanks for posting Savvy.  I lack consistency in my game and its time for me to put in some actual work to get better, rather than trying to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results.

    I looked at that link you posted and I will try and implement that into my next practice session.  Weight balance throughout my swing has been an issue for me at times in the past.  I will also focus on keeping my head steady on my downswing, that is definitely something I had no idea I did.

    As far as my active hands on the follow through, I think you hit the nail on the head.  My biggest miss comes from me being too quick and pulling the ball left, so I think I over compensate to try and hold the lag as long as possible.  Is this a big issue? If so, any tips to help with my lag?

    Thanks again for the insight, I can look at my swing myself 100 times, but I personally don't even know what to look for.

    My Swing (DannyMac)

    I've been Playing Golf for: 20+ years, since I was able to hold a club.
    My current handicap index or average score is: 10.4 - Avg. Score between 80-85
    My typical ball flight is: High Draw
    The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Pull Hook

    Hey everyone, I am a long time lurker of TST and just recently decided to sign up and become active in this great golf community.

    When looking at my swing, I notice I'm a little flat on the top and my grip is right hand strong.  Also note that I do not use a interlock grip due to a hockey injury to my knuckle.  I have never taken a lesson, so I am open to any advice or drills anyone is willing to offer. (Swing Analysis is very new to me)

    I appreciate everyone who takes the time to view my swing.  I will be viewing this thread daily and will post any progress or updates of my swing.

    Thanks again,

    I would definitely give one of these a try.  I think, like earlier posters have said, the issues could be the riders who would abuse the use of these.  This product is a complimentary item for the game of golf, but I could see riders doing tricks and jumps and abusing the course.  I love new golf innovations and I am excited to try one, but please, Respect The Game and The Course!
