Updated. Add your name when you're "in."

Saturday (Practice) at CHQ:

  1. @georgep
  2. @Hardspoon
  3. @BradSomrak
  4. @Bonvivant
  5.  
  6.  
  7.  
  8.  

Sunday (Playing) TBD:

  1. @saevel25
  2. @georgep
  3. @Hardspoon
  4. @BradSomrak
  5. @Bonvivant
  6.  
  7.  

We'll take up to ten people on Saturday, btw, but once we get to six I'll basically be able to say the entire day is for TST practice/lessons/etc.

The practice facility here has our own range (for instruction, practice), three putting greens, one of which has a bunker and is good for chipping/pitching, and a lower one that's good for putting and chipping/pitching, with three 150-ish yard practice holes. All included in the $78 with my instruction. (Again $60, my junior rate, for the never-ending all-day revolving lessons, and $18 for the day pass for the facility.)

But anyway, we're at four, so once two more people commit to Saturday, it becomes an "all-day" thing, and we can start and end at slightly different times than the 9-3 I proposed. Could do 10-5, could do 9-5 if we get more people, etc.

My calendar shows me open for that weekend. I have to check with "The One Who Must Be Obeyed". She's in a meeting right now, upstairs in her office. Maybe I'll go press my face against the glass window of her office until she waves me in. 

Oh btw, if I come will @iacas sign my copy of LSW?!?!

Trying to figure out what do with my wife for that weekend. We are new to the area and I hate for her to have to play the golf widow. Looking to see if there would be things for her to do. Looks like the second day would most likely be in PA. Is the waterfront developed in Erie? Are many restaurants and attractions open?

I'm a definite for Saturday. Name added to list.

Thank you for putting this together. I can't freaking wait!

The boss says I can play. I'm in for both days.

Cool guys. Is everyone on the list?

BTW I’m happy to expand hours Saturday and also reduce cost slightly if we get more people. So keep filling it up as the more the merrier.

We can go beyond those as needed, and we'll work out "shifts" or something on Saturday for the "lessons" so everyone isn't wanting to start working on "things" at the same time. The whole day Saturday is for y'all now, so that's good.

Is this something where we could spend all day there if we wanted to too? Just to be around golf and new people? If this is the case, I wouldn't mind taking an afternoon slot. I've never had any kind of lesson and wouldn't mind waiting and just moseying around and warming up.

I can tentatively do both days!

My driver has been on point of late but I've forgotten how to hit and iron and wedge.

Yeah, you can spend all day there. Right now we don't need much "afternoon" time. If we have eight, my plan would be for people to start showing up between 9 and 10:30. If you're going to be a later "lesson" you can putt or chip for awhile, with some others, and if you're going to be an earlier lesson you can warm up and get into it a little bit.

But you can easily spend the day there. There's a decent lunch place (just takeout subs, a small grocery store) not far away, and we might even eat outside as a group that evening at Andriaccio's there in CHQ.

If we go beyond 8 or 10, we can make "shifts" of sorts, as people will not want to be there for nine hours straight (then again, what else do you have to do, since you can also just bring a book and take an hour-long break 😄?), but you know… 😉

    • Day 30 - Played 18, a round to forget. 
    • Save your money and get a good unit. Sounds like you’re serious. The problem is your budget. Unfortunately, better units simply won’t likely fall to within your budget at this point in time. The mevo+ looks promising but the stickers would be a deal breaker for me. My set up is a gc2, computer with FR1 (with all courses), country club elite mat, projector, and hitting screen. I’m sure I’ve left something out. The only problems I have with the gc2 is the fact that it over-rewards low spin shots (like driver) on the carry distance. Otherwise, it’s very accurate. Really the only data points I care about are ball speed and start line; I don’t curve the ball too much generally. If my ball speed and start line are where I want it, I’m pretty happy. Other potential issue I see for it moving forward: it does not have a LED flash like the quad so those have to be replaced after a while (long time but still). That said my foresight guy gets me what I need and has taken care of me. 
    • The Ping G410 Plus sits open at address. My suggestion is to take your grip and hold it straight in front of you with the club face is square, then address the ball. Your push should then become a draw. 
    • Erik already told you what you need to do from a technical standpoint.  I think you're trying too hard and you're getting emotional while you're playing. I can tell from your post. Emotions can help you focus in some sports, but in golf they will absolutely punish you. If you let your emotions get the better of you, they will reinforce the negative and ignore the positive while you are playing. And once that starts you might as well pack it in for the round. You and I have been playing about the same length of time. I'm a 90s golfer. I don't know if I'll ever break into the 80s consistently. It's a goal, but the world won't end if I don't. You've put more time and effort into this than I have. The biggest lesson I learned was to play the game one shot at a time. Forget the last shot that you hit. It's gone. It's not there anymore. You have an entirely new situation in front of you. Look it over, figure out how to best play it, pull the club, go through your pre-shot routine, relax, visualize the successful shot, trust yourself, and swing the club. "What happens if I hit a bad shot?" you say. Laugh if you have to. You're not playing for a $ millions. The shot is gone. You have a new shot. It's the only way to deal with it without getting negative thoughts. Play within your game. Don't try to do what your game doesn't allow you too do.  You also said "an easy 6i shot". Now I don't know if you meant to take an easy swing with the 6i or it was a simple 6i shot. English is vague. If you meant the latter, you assigned a value to the shot. It's just a 6i shot. You either make it or you don't. Saying it's 'easy' and missing it means failure. Having it just be a shot and missing the green means you just missed the green. You have to chip or pitch on. No value to the shot. A former tour pro gave me this advice. And I'll mention, this is one of the most difficult things to do, but it can keep your head clear of negative thoughts through a round. That's all I have to say about this. YMMV.
    • 101, 49/52. Long track, 6100 yds par 71. Wet so no roll.  My long game is weak but what concerns me more is my approach and wedge game let me down today.
