Tactics for the win!


Sounds like she is starting to break down. ;-)

It's all about putting things in perspective for her, haha. What I didn't say is I probably will go golfing Saturday too, but we'll cross that bridge when it comes. The trip to Erie is still a point of contention just because it's a 2 day thing and she doesn't understand why I want to go do it. Which brings up a question, Since we are carpooling has anyone decided where we are staying? Or are we not going up on Saturday to take advantage of the instructional portion?

I'm going up of for the two days, I have no clue what you guys are doing. :-P Depending on what time the instructional stuff starts, we can leave early Saturday morning. 

 

Not sure yet on accommodations. I was thinking of staying outside of Erie, closer to the interstate. Sharing a room is possible, that would cut housing fee in half. Looks like Hotel cost is going to be about 120-150 per night. I was thinking one of the hotels off of Perry HWY (97) and I-90. That way it is away from the airport.

I'm not sure. Didn't get any deets on the instruction thing yet as far as cost, time, etc.

 

Added: Of course, I haven't even applied for the kitchen pass for the trip yet. :-D

Last time I went up there the room I got was only like 90, can't remember what one it was but got it through hotels.com or something.

Not sure if y'all like camping or not, but here is another option.

Through Hotels.com right now, there is nothing under 100. Not sure if that is because it is so far off. A lot of times prices decrease a lot as you get closer to the date you want to stay. Just because the odds of filling a room closer to the day is less than a few months away.

Yeah, I got that room the same night I was there. Just pulled into a parking lot and found that price and booked it.

The "instructional portion" is not really about that. I'm going to have everyone hang out downtown, have putting contests, have chipping contests, etc.

 

Very little instructional stuff. We'll probably try to record everyone's swings, but we'll just give you the videos and you can post them to YouTube for your "My Swing" threads. We'll probably also do a quick pitching thing, and maybe a little SAM PuttLab analysis, but we're talking about $25 to $50. I honestly hope to get us on Whispering Woods to play a 15" hole tournament the day before or something, that Saturday evening, or something, but it may not be possible for a few reasons (time). I'd like to have everyone drive around the course the night before because it can bite you a few times if you're unaware.

I think I can get everyone in the hotel across the street (The Avalon Hotel) for $79. I think you can share rooms too.

No time on the flightscope or anything? Dang I was really hoping to get a chance to do that this time since it wasn't available last time.

Yes. That's available too. Three of them, probably: Xi, Xi+, and X2.

What is a Flightscope and what does Xi, Xi+, etc mean? :hmm:

Flightscope is a radar that detects club head and ball movement to give you real world data on your golf shot. The Xi, Xi+ are model types of Flightscope.

Basically it is a launch monitor, a very accurate one.

Ah. Which is the best model for slower "old man" swings?

They just measure different things. The X2 measures all.
post #106 of 465

I'm basically just curious what my actual swing speed is as well as my AoA, launch angle, and spin on driver.
