What about it? eBay.

Cost like $20, and the patch about $5.

Doh. I thought it was from a Masters winner.

Nice article. You did a good job articulating a lot of what could really help people out in terms of learning/playing the game. 

BTW - I'm sure you aren't, but in this photo, it kinda looks like you are using a reinforcement technique by hitting this young man in the head with a pool noodle every time he commits a swing fault.

Liked the distribution on concepts when you have 1..2 or 3 hours for a 1st class. With strategy you can gain strokes rigth away, cut out a few strokes with short game is something that can be achived in a short amount of time. 
Long game is the most important ascpect if you really want to lower your score but that take time! in that case you need several clases. 
Good Job!

Finished the piece. It’s been cool following your journey in golf.

Great point on the season in Erie being longer than perceived.

You’ve obviously never taken a lesson with @iacas before. That kid got lucky with the pool noodle. He had PVC for me last time I was out there 😜

Recommend giving this a read about TST's very own @iacas, some really good insights into coaching and playing. Congrats to him on the interview!

Generations pass along the keys to humanity. A new extraction takes what it learned from the preceding one, then expands the knowledge base in a positive direction. In Erie, Pennsylvania, situated halfway between Buffalo...

    • Played Saturday at one of the tougher courses (for me) in my area which plays as a Par 72, 70.3/124 - 6,245 yds.  Some highlights/lowlights.  First hole is a 490 y Par 5 - Hit my tee shot weak right and the put a 5w out leaving me 180 to a downhill green.   Hit a 5i clean and looked to be online but once it cleared the hill, I lost sight of it.  As I get closer to the green, my ball is sitting not even 3' from the hole....miracle shot.  For the 3rd consecutive round, I birdie the first hole.  Made bogeys on 2-5. Hole 6 - 143y Par 3 - had one of my best iron shots of the day.  2 putt par. Hole 8 - Par 4 that is about 230 to the water from the tee.  Always have played this with my 3w to land safely before the water hazard.  It may be time to switch to 5w or 4i as my tee shot went into the water.  Ended up with Double Bogey. Finished the front 9 with a 44 which is always excellent here. Back 9 started off terribly as I went +7 over three holes.  This includes a triple bogey on hole 12.  Tee shot left me ~ 165 to the green.  Flew over it and landed in this spongey type of moss on the back tree line.  Took me 3 freaking shots to get back on the green. Back 9 was not much to write home about....had back to back pars but that was it.  Came in on 48 44/48 - 92.....I will say, my tee shots, irons, and putter were all working.  Even with a 92, I must have easily lost 10-12 shots from just around the green.  Frustrating but it tells me what to focus on.  Stats 1 Birdie 3 Pars 9 Bogeys 5 Double + 4 GIR 35 Putts 1 Penalty Sunday, I played at my home course.  Front 9 was nothing special as I went out with a 45 and I then proceeded to light it up on the first half of the back 9.  I started out Par, Birdie, Par, Par putting me -1 after 4 holes and E after 5 holes.   I then had a disappointing finish of Double, Par, Bogey, Double.  Finished 45/41 - 86 for the lowest round of the year.   4 rounds in with scores of 89,87,92,86 so hopefully that is a sign of things to come.  I am feeling much more comfortable on most shots from a driver to a putter.  Just need to get the feel back for around the green and hopefully the scores/handicap will drop.  In those 4 rounds, I have 5 birdies.  In 2019, it took me 16 rounds to get 5 birdies.  Stats 1 Birdie 6 Pars 7 Bogeys 4 Double + 6 GIR 32 Putts 1 Penalty  
    • I will and try to get some swing video this weekend.  My daughter is letting me use her fancy phone stand and I will be able to get behind the line and face on.  I will even put my Zepp on and give you the data from it for that swing.  That is weather permitting, right now in Central Texas with weather can be iffy with rain and thunderstorms.  That, and it is getting hotter than Hades already.
    • I was just following the lead of the guy before me.  I should know better.  I think PGA is sort of a "catch-all" for a lot of folks... even when they're referring to USGA events.
    • Youtube lessons (both live and recorded) exist.  Use those to teach her the basic fundamentals like grip and swing.  Otherwise just find something fun for her to do.  Like some goals, targets to hit etc
