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!

    • By Associated Press, Wire Service Content May 23, 2020, at 3:22 PM Western Montana Virus Outbreak Tied to Luxury Golf Club An outbreak of COVID-19 in western Montana is tied to an exclusive golf and country club developed by financial executive Charles Schwab. - - - - - -KATU News requested and received records from Portland's Parks & Recreation Department and discovered that from March 1 through April 6, 2019, there were 23,089 rounds of golf played at its five municipal courses. During that same time period this year, from March 1 through April 6, 2020, Portland Parks Golf saw an increase of 15% in golf rounds - 26,554 rounds of golf were played as the coronavirus outbreak spread in the Pacific Northwest. Portland golfers play through coronavirus pandemic at city courses Golfers are still swinging away at Portland's five city-owned and operated courses during the coronavirus pandemic, with more rounds being played compared to this time period last year, even as orders from the governor...
    • Torrey allows them and play seemed to speed up during a period when riding carts were not allowed. Torrey South in particular with elevated greens and a lot of green side bunkers, I can see the 2 - 3 foot area off and around the edge of the greens getting extra wear from all the push/pull cart trafic.  With a push cart and the course setup all the walkers with push carts are funneled into these small pathways as they keep the carts off the green and avoid slowing play down by making trips back to their carts if they leave them back at the fairway.  It's pretty much okay as the Kikuyu grass is so tough, otherwise it would be a problem. They should just allow and encourage players to just walk the carts right onto the green.
    • And how about a massive mower that is on the green everyday.    I don’t drive my push cart over the green, but I do drive it over tee boxes if they are in my way. The only reason is that a lot of them are battery driven and they might spin out on the green doing some damage that way if the user is not careful.  Yes they still have them and charge some for them. But they are crap and most of the people have their own and many are battery driven. 
    • Hello to everyone, new poster here.  Wanted to share my thoughts about this method...maybe not just this method, but the overall effect of an open stance on early extension. I'm 57, 5 hncp, rather thick chested and inflexible, and have struggled with early extension and flipping for many years.  Really, I'm a 10 hncp ballstriker and a 2 inside 25 yards. I have watched a few "senior" themed instruction videos to address EE, and they're almost all some theme of  - closed stance, get a deep shoulder turn, swing out to the right, and accept early extension.  None of this worked for me...my driver especially was wildly inconsistent. So, opening my stance and swinging out instantly improved my ballstriking through the bag.  Not really sure why, but I believe a closed stance facilitates EE - if I close up, it's not difficult to straighten my back, be on my toes, and stay balanced.  Moving the left foot back with the butt moving forward results in a totally unbalanced (falling forward) position which can't be maintained, so the body doesn't do it (EE). Yes, my backswing is shorter, but I'm making better strikes and haven't lost distance.   Does this make any sense?
