    • Is being taller an advantage? Ask Maurice. . .   http://www.worldlongdrive.com/players/maurice-allen/ 5'8" in shoes. . .
    • Miles of golf demonstrated this. My son's high school team were monster long players. The longest hitter hit a couple Balata balls with an older style club with a steel shaft over the fence 240 yards away and about 75 feet high or more. Other than playing baseball, he didn't really workout a lot. I'd guess that if he were playing in the 1980s, he'd be one of the longest hitters. His average drive was something north of 300 yards. Average, not poked. I was told that one of the players the web tour have hit over 390 yard drives with some frequency. The longest LDA is now almost capable of reaching the high 400s. http://www.africanamericangolfersdigest.com/maurice-allen-long-drive-hitter-phenom/ For those who think height is the most important attribute, Maurice is 5'8" in shoes and 225 pounds.
    • I can't believe the airport driving range at HKG closed down. Interspersing blogging and practice swings in a quiet part of secured area of the airport. No guards came by asking what I was doing, yet. Wireless headphones can play the metronome and music at the same time, but if the tempos are different then it gets confusing. . .
    • I have said this before, but I don't think folks give up the game. They give up on themselves, playing the game.  Take an extended break from the game. Start again fresh when you are ready. 
    • 9/21/17: Played 27 Holes in 4 hours today. Wedges are better... But it seems I'm weakening my grip, not just loosening it. I struggled for a bit with the driver, but got a nice groove going the last 9 holes. Where I hit driver, wedge pretty much the last four par-fours (I hit 7-iron to the sixth), I actually trusted myself to hit an actual pitch shot on the first and holed it out for a par... (I had a run in with trees).... I've got to play a little more.
