You still thinking about possibly playing Erin Hills with @Jakester23, @cedrictheo and I as well?

Not sure, I would be happy to help plan and organize a Chicago area outing if there was enough interest.  Maybe @cedrictheo would know of a good course to play because I have not really played any down there.

 

The timing could be tricky, not sure when it would be best to do it.  With playing Erin next year, the Erie outing, and Newport cup next year things could be on overload.  Financially and logistically, I will personally have to pick between the Newport cup and the Erie outing and I will probably go with the Newport cup for the amount of golf that will be played with that.

It sounds like you have 3 Ohioians interested in coming up. I think @14ledo81 lives up there somewhere.

Absolutely! Just keep me informed. I'll start saving up for it!

I think I can pull all of them. Mostly for me it would be getting enough time off. The Erin would work over a weekend so that wouldn't bother me much. I agree, I would pick the trip to So CAL!!! We have to invade @mvmac's territory lay the smack down!

Sounds good.  I'll start a separate thread at some point for the Erin hills thing.  Maybe we can get a couple groups out there, who knows.  If you wanted we could possibly play my home club Watertown Country Club that weekend as well.  The two courses are fairly close to one another. 

 

If I am going to lay any smack down out there for the Newport I had better learn how to hit a driver, otherwise @Golfingdad will take me to school.  :-D

You're assuming I will be able to hit a driver straight.  That's still a risky proposition.  But we've both got a year to figure it out ... it can be done!

 

Speaking of awesome golf trips, I had to just say no to a trip to Bandon in March with my brother.  3 days, 3 nights, 5 rounds of golf.  I sure hope his club is doing the same trip in 2016!!

 

P.S.  In the video of your putting playoff, it looked like our fearless leader, AKA the guy who gave me the Barney nickname after seeing me in a purple shirt once, was wearing a purple shirt.  Or was it pink?  Anybody think to give him a nickname?:-P

I have wanted to go there for a long time...one day.  Hope you get to do it next year.

If it's Newport beach, I'll meet you there! It was great playing the round with you, Matt and Shane.

Not sure where it will be, but it will be an event in SoCal I believe.  We are talking about the Newport Cup though.  Sorry I abbreviated it in that last post.

@cbrian I will probably send in one or two more evolvr uploads just to make sure I am staying on the right track and then I will spend the later part of fall and the winter refining this.


Results have been very solid hitting higher little fades with everything.  Driver has been huge pushes but I should be able to improve that as I continue to work on it.

 

  • Hands lower with better posture in set-up
  • "Feeling" no wrist movement in backswing.
  • Hips rotate without sway.
  • Hands high instead of in.

Yeah, I only have like 4 total golf shirt and pant combinations.  I'll get the wife to work on that, or I will just continue to live in apathy...;-)

The swings on the right look real good. Are you getting a fade still?

Yes I was hitting draws when I wanted on the range today as well, but I am trying to stay with the fade for now as the go to shot.

 

I just wanted to see where I was at with a full swing on the range today with this video before heading out on my trip.  I will do a bunch of alignment stick drill work when I get back next week.

 

This looks like a very different golfer, in some ways.  It is a little tough not to over-swing with this feel and at the moment and my exit is a little ugly(it always is though), but the results are starting to show.  Also, I think the face still gets too shut to start(I need to kinda do the opposite of what you need to do Jake), so I will really need to focus on that in my 2 part backswing drill work later next week.  Stupid monkey time next week.
