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 6: I spent an hour on the range today focusing on nothing other than my main piece of getting to the top properly. The result was the best contact I have made in ages. I am feeling really good about my progress and am going to stay with it this time. Small incremental improvements make a huge difference and I need to remember that.    This place has been so helpful to me. Truly the best site and members anywhere on the Internet. 
    • 2 Birdies today, #10 was a repeat but #13 was a new one.    5 holes to go
    • Excellent feedback as always @Grizvok. I have a bad habit of trying to skip ahead before I have mastered something.  I took my work out to the range today and hit every club in the bag with the best contact I have made in a LONG time. It felt great to see my swing back. I’m still struggling with low ball flight on my low irons and hybrid/wood but that’s a battle for another day. 
    • If only there were decades of tournament data that could provide statistical clarity to the question. 
    • I have had lessons in the past. In addition to this ive read countless ideas on the swing by so many people and watched gold constantly. When i was good at golf, i had a swing where i attacked the ball very much from the inside and played with a strong draw. My grip was odd...the left hand pretty neutral but the right hand strong. The swing was very short and had a very fast tempo, not dissimilar to someone like Nicholas Thompson off the PGA tour. I got down to a 2 handicap at lowest, and usually a low 3 handicapper hovering around 2.5, 2.6 index. I wanted to get better as i never felt i hit the ball that well, so i sought out lessons and i saw the trackman numbers and such. We worked on getting the grip better, actually aligning to the target better (whereas before i would just kind of walk up to the ball, shuffle around a bit till i felt it was ok and hit), i started really focusing on things that i still think are good like alignment, routine etc. And the swing path became less inside out. For a while i played great, then i started getting steeper and steeper and hitting disgusting pull slices all day. THEN, it started getting to the point where, my mind wouldnt let me take the club away. I would do all kinds of crazy stuff like the club would bounce up and down and my takeaway totally frozen even though pros recommended trigger moves etc. Then because the game wasnt enjoyable because of the yipping, id start taking time off because i didnt want to go through with all of this and then, i started losing my flexibility, getting bigger etc. Now I just dont want to go because the only emotions i ever feel are frustration, resentment, annoyance, wanting it to be over after 10 mins and feeling like theres 4 more hours left etc. If you could take me back to a time where i did not yip, i would play the game again and absolutely love it, but its never ever coming back. Ive tried everything. It HURTS. Ive never been any good at ANYTHING else in my life. I put everything into golf from the age of 12 up to about 25. The last 10 years has just been too much for me. i just cant take it
