Good read. I've never thought about utilizing a reverse K setup for anything other than the driver. I'd imagine the magnitude of the hip shift forward is quite a bit less when applied to the iron setup versus the driver.
What do you think about the idea of simultaneously adopting this slight setup change while beginning to work on adding some "flow" in an attempt to minimize the obvious pitfall of making the sway much too pronounced?
I play in a league which has people who play from the "regular" tees and then some who are over 60 who play from the "senior" tees.
With the way the World Handicap System is today, you just use whatever handicap they have from whichever set of tees they are playing.
That way we don't discourage anyone who wants to play from playing.
For a while now I’ve noticed that many low and plus handicappers falsify their handicaps just to get in tournaments. I’m sure many people on this forum have read about this or even know people who do this. On occasion I see several players that shoot anywhere from 85 and upwards. How is this possible? I look up their handicaps (if I can find them) and am surprised the +2, +3 and plus 4’s are shooting these type of scores. Maybe it was bad weather, maybe the course didn’t fit their game? But what really catches my eye is that many of these players don’t post scores. I’ve seen a few that haven’t posted a score in over a year. It just doesn’t seem right that these players are allowed entry into these tournaments. It also seem wrong that those who run these tournaments even allow them entry?
I’m sure there’s some reason. I was once told that many ranked amateurs don’t post a score due to their amateur ranking. Some don’t post as they are playing for a scholarship and need the ranking. True or false I don’t know.
....what are your thoughts on this? Who cares? It doesn’t matter?
This is why I was so fortunate to do my fitting outdoors with a TrackMan to actual targets. The monitor couldn’t cheat as it would be pretty obvious if I’m hitting to the same target but getting significantly different yardages. I was able to compare my old set directly against the clubs I was trying out. Made it much easier to see the differences.
