We were in Ligonier not too far from you in May. It was a great time- to see arnies stomping grounds. BUt anyway, I noticed that you are a Head pro? I used to be a first assistant at a private club near Minneapolis, what club are you the pro?

I'm not a Head Pro. I'm the administrator of the site, and "Head Pro" just my user title. Just as yours is currently "Mini-Golfer."

I'm an AutoCAD draftsman for a lighting company. I draw lighting layouts based on architectural /electrical ceiling plans for commercial businesses. I have done layouts for some very big well-known companies, and before me, my company even did the lighting for Callaway's headquarters.

Just adding my two cents.
In addition to writing for the Sand Trap I also own and operate
a (soon-to-be) Getty Service Station and sell used cars.

I also operate another golf website.

To plygdgolf: I used to be Circulation Sales Director for Fairchild Publications in NY
but I didn't like to be suited up! And, that was ages ago.

I have my own golf page (not as elaborate as this), but the second largest (in terms of content) in Northern California. It's part of my television station website.

Own many golf clubs, but have mastered none of them.

Nice page, guys. Your reviews of equipment are excellent, and I agree with most of what you to say.

I was an armor captain and just got out of the US Army back in July 2005. I am now a consultant for BearingPoint....and no, Phil Mickelson is not my favorite golfer.

I'm the supervisor for a custom millwork shop. We build about anything and everything out of wood.

As for the first post where it states that state farm has alot of golfers, I can vouch for that. My wife works for state farm and I play on their golf league. Pretty good group of guys.

Heh, that was mostly a joke because Cody, a staff member, writes for the site and works for State Farm.

Welcome aboard, kklick.

    • I couple years ago, I built a 48x36 shop at my house and it has a pitched roof that is 12ft at the walls (I think) and runs up to 16ft in the middle. Over that time period, I have used it to do an engine swap on a truck that I had and we have one area where we wash cars. I have finished the swap on my truck and I am debating on using a large area (if not the majority) of the shop as a practice area and I wanted to get input from everyone here on the best setup. From the picture I have attached (it was a quick rendering, so don't be me up too bad on it...haha) I have shown how the shop is setup. To make it somewhat easier to discuss, I broke it up into 4 quadrants. A is where I worked on the truck so that is where my tools and tool box and things stay. B is pretty much open and just houses the golf cart when it's home or whatever needs to just sit. C currently has a friend's race car sitting there but it will be leaving before long. I was just housing it for him. D has a drain in the floor and is where we normally wash cars. I have a television already hanging on the wall in quadrant C.  The original plan was to install a 4 post lift in A, but I think I am leaning more towards using that money for a simulator to install somewhere.  So what do you guys think?  How should I set the shop up for practice? Lets assume I want to have section A available for working on cars and section D available for washing cars. By available, I mean, any practice equipment that is in those areas could be easily moved to accommodate those requests. Nothing is definite really, so just throw whatever thoughts you have out there, please. Shop Drawing.pdf
    • I was playing earlier this week with a neighbor. He and I were paired up with a couple of other guys. They were perfectly nice guys. One of them, lost a ball on the first hole. Oddly, we all thought he striped it down the middle of the fairway, but we couldn't find it anywhere. Anyway, he went back to the tee, hit a drive into the rough, hit an approach into the bunker, blasted out, 2 putted for a triple bogey. He parred the next 3 holes. Made a birdie on the toughest hole on the course (hole number 5). Then par, par, par. Before making another triple on hole 9. He finished the front 9 with a 5 over 41. Which he said was disappointing. I could see why. The triple on the first was bummer (a lost ball we all thought was down the middle.) The triple on the last was one of those hit it into trouble, tried to make the heroic save, got in more trouble, kind-of-deals.  The back nine, all of us parred hole 10, a par 5. (I was disappointed on this one as I reached the green in 2.) 3 putts suck! He topped his drive on 11. He saved bogie. Topped another drive on 12, saved par. 13 is a longish (188 yards) par 3. He topped another tee-shot this time with an iron. Then he hit into the bunker, knocked it out, 2 putted to a double bogey.  Then he took his bag off the cart and walked back to the club-house. He told his partner, he was losing his game and knew it wouldn't come back. So he just left.  His buddy told me and my neighbor that he plays with this guy all the time and that he can't remember how many times this guy has just given up mid-round and walked off. I guess it happens all the time.  We all spent the final 5 holes discussing whether it was better to just "walk off" the course when you don't feel you are playing well. Or to stick it out and try to recover. What do you all think?
    • So there's a booster for Moderna now? I thought they were saying the Moderna efficacy didn't drop like the prize one did? Like Pfizer dropped to 70 something but Moderna stayed in the 90s after 6 months?
    • Welcome to The Sand Trap! Thanks for posting. First, you are flexible and look pretty athletic, which helps. In the down the line swing, you can see you are coming in a little out-to-in or over the top, which can lead to the pull slices you mentioned. In the face on, you can see you also flip a bit, as you mentioned. You don’t shift your weight much forward during the downswing, which can cause this. Below are a couple of threads. First is the Five Simply Keys thread, 5SK. The 5SK are the common things all good golf swing have and is not a swing method, but a guide so to speak. Key 2, for example, is weight forward at impact. This may be something you should look at. There are video drills for each Key in the thread. The second thread was started by the site owner during the pandemic lockdown last year when courses were close. It is an excellent collection of drills to work on. The first five are full swing drills. They start with backswing and go through impact. Proper backswing sequence and position can help set up a good downswing sequence. Check them out. Lastly, We like to get to know our members here on TST and one of the things that helps is when members choose a unique avatar for themselves. Please add one (here's a guide to help if you're not sure how).    And we have lots of other topics here on the site. Check them out as well and join in the conversations.  
    • I don’t know enough about it to answer intelligently, but it seems a bit different  than what my instructors want me to do. An example is the long arc drill where we try to slow down release or wrist turnover through to A9 and keep palmar flexion a bit longer. This would keep the face open longer. For me, it may be because it would help my face to path be more consistent at impact. It seems to be a timing scenario if you let the face rotate freely. I think it should be ‘happens’ but training it with gate drills for start line may help. if I use my ‘spirit animal’ PGA Pro example, from my Evolvr instructor, I would say the number would be a lot less. It’s hard to tell from the image below, but it looks like Zack’s face is more closed at A6. So basically, I will do what my instructor tells me I should do.😀
