I've been talking with @iacas about the possibility of doing a group lesson at Golf Evolution in Erie, PA. 

We were talking about getting together in the AM on October 9th. 

We could do the lesson at Golf Evolution. We can kind of schedule it however we like as long as we are done by 1PM so Erik can head out of there to coach his college team. 

I know I'll be working on my game a lot this off season, so this would be a great time for me to get another lesson in. We can flesh out the details as we go. But for now I'm just trying to gauge interest. Anyone else interested? 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Pretty sure I can make it as I’ll be staying in western NY longer than originally planned.

So, I got into a car accident last week which totaled my car (have a few scratches on my arm but no other injuries otherwise thankfully) so at this point, I'm a maybe because I have to figure out my car situation before committing to anything.

I've been really busy, too, and haven't done anything golf related in a month, either so there's that, too. :-(

I’ll probably spend the night near Erie (in my van!) and would be interested in playing in the afternoon, weather permitting. I’ll play solo if needed, but would love to play with others doing the lesson if there’s interest.

Glad you are okay, brother. 

Perhaps this is the chance to get back into golf related activity?

I'd be interested as well. Although it's been my experience that playing right after a lesson can be ... what's the word? ... interesting?

Thanks, bro!  Yeah, not necessarily a bad motivator.

Well now, if ppl are playing then i might rent a car if i don't have one to get the lesson and go play!😂

You could also consider hitch-hiking?

Bold choice there…

I'll need to check schedule more but my interest is peaked.  I have @ 4 1/2 hour drive and would not spend the night in my SUV.  @Chris Brooks you can share a room with me if I do come.  I would only come with the anticipation of playing a round in the afternoon.  Just too long a drive for only a lesson (although I am sure it would be a great lesson).   As for golfing after a lesson, at least we would be with others in the same boat.

At least not as bold as golfing with the instructor!

    • Meanwhile on the PGA Tour, Scheffler is five ahead through 15 with play to resume on Monday. If he wins, it would be his fourth in five starts. Has two players ever dominated like that simultaneously?  
    • Day 109- Made some full swings today. Hopefully that means I’m close to 100%, although a particularly painful sneeze has me keeping expectations more realistic. 
    • Well done! And i would have 100% believed a 200+ 6 iron off the tee. No need to give away your secrets!
    • Day 286: mirror work - checking posture and grip and then working on hip movement. 
    • Ok.  So I have this problem:    If I place the ball in the middle of my stance (when hitting my irons, like you're supposed to), I just can't seem to make good contact.  I'm chunking it; it seems like I'm hitting way behind the ball, and my clubhead is not yet at the bottom of the swing trajectory (ie where it's supposed to be when contact is made).     I'm not sure why this is.  I think it may be because I'm not bending enough at the waist, leaning forward.  I may be standing up too straight.  If I place the ball forward in my stance (by as much as 3-4 ball lengths, especially with my long iron), I get nearly perfect contact . . . but with a hook/pull tendency.
