  1. First Ace!!!

  2. This is taken from the R & A website.  Not sure if this changes anything
  3. 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!
  5. My Swing (DannyMac)

    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!
  7. My Swing (DannyMac)

    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.
  8. 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, Dan Videos: 8 iron swings - Video includes back view and side view, along with slow motion footage.
  9. Golf Skate Caddy

    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!

  11. What'd You Shoot Today?

    Played the front 9 at my home course today. 70.8/127 6400yd Shot a 3 over, 39.  I struck my irons very well but had trouble finding the fairway with my driver.  Doubled the 3rd hole due to blading a 20 yard pitch shot into the green side bunker.  All in all, a satisfying night of golf with 7 pars, 1 bogey, and 1 double bogey. Front 9 Stats: Total Putts - 16 (1.78 putts per hole) Fairways Hit - 2/7 (28.6%) Green in Reg - 5/9 (55.6%
  12. What'd You Shoot Today?

    40-39 - 79 70.8/127 6400yd's Before round Index - 11.1 After round Index- 10.5 10 Front - 16 Back = Total 26 Putts 5/14 Fairways Hit 5/18 GIR I didn't strike the ball well today, my short game was the difference today.  Eagled the 510yd par 5 14th hole, also doubled the par 5 16th and finished par- par to conserve my 79.  Normally I would be pretty happy with a 79, but I didn't feel very confident out there.  I also was 4 over for the round after my eagle on the 14th hole, and then I started thinking about my total score.  Next two holes went bogey- double bogey, and I really buckled down to finish par par.  I need to stop thinking about my total score during my round and just focus on hitting quality golf shots, it definitely got in my head.  It was bitter sweet today, but I'm excited on how my short game is progressing.
  13. What'd You Shoot Today?

    Hey everyone, new to the forum here and thought my first post should be about my latest round of golf! Course: Par 72, 70.8/127, 6350 yards Shot 84. 41-43.  Was playing a 2 man best ball match at my home course.  I was shaky off the start going 5 over after my first 3 holes.  I settled down and birdied the 4th, and got pars on 5,6,7,8 and finished my front 9 with a bogey, finishing 5 over 41 for the front 9.  Back 9 wasn't this best golf, doubled the 10th, and proceeded to bogey 11,12,13,14,15, and then I finished with 3 straight pars on 16,17, and 18 to finish with a 7 over, 43 and a 84 total. We ended up winning our best ball match 5 and 4.  It is handicapped, 80% of your handicap factor and playing off the lowest handicap in the group.  My partner is a 2.1, and he shot 74.  Was a lot of fun to play some sort of competitive golf.  It was an very inconsistent round but it had a lot of good swings in it! Keeps me coming back.
