Well, I'm still in.
It was touch and go there for just a bit. But I have the greatest wife in the world who helped me make sure I'm still in on this adventure. 

So, here's my checklist.

  • I'm available
  • I'm completely healthy (Fully Vaccinated, plus I got a flu shot for this year already.) 💪
  • I have a hotel for Friday Night
  • I have golf clubs
  • I have cash to cover both the round on Friday night and the lessons on Saturday
  • Eric won't be board, as I have plenty to work on
  • The only thing I need now is some descent weather Friday afternoon

What could possibly go wrong?

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

You realize your question will bring about change?!     TV shows usually ask that question and then all hell breaks loose.  I'm not saying we're going to blame you for anything but it's an option!  😂

I'm looking forward to the trip. We'll see you at the course Friday afternoon!

Eating more than @RFKFREAK isn't the problem. Functioning after eating that much is another story all together.

So I have a soccer game Friday at 6:30. So, what I think the schedule Friday might be is…

1:35 - I'll watch you guys play some golf.
6:35 - I'll go play some soccer, you guys return to freshen up, whatever.
7:45 - I'll meet you at Outback, if you can tolerate sitting next to a guy who just played soccer. 😄

Alternatively:

1:35 - I'll watch you guys play some golf.
6:35 - You guys go wherever the heck you want to eat, I play soccer, and I see you the next morning.

Either is good by me.

If we have time, I'd come watch.  I'm a soccer fan.    We'll meet you at 7:45.    Looking forward to it.

Ha ha. 😄 I think we can do call-ahead, but Erie is a sleepy town, so they'll probably not need it at that time.

Glad to hear.  I also had a scare today.  Wife called @ noon and was very sick and Dr. wanted COVID test.  Her & I both came back negative for not Covid & Flu and I have a friend stopping by tomorrow & Sat. To make sure she is OK.  Thus I am packed & ready.

Haha! Second witness here. It happened.

Thanks @iacasfor your patience and organized approach to teaching all of us. I took lots of notes and expect to get out and practice more today. Good weather ahead all week here in NY so no excuse to not work for it.

Great meeting everyone! I would absolutely return.

I've blogged about my wanderings since 2003. I love roaming throughout the USA looking for remote public golf courses to play.

And YES, it was worth it.  I feel we should look at doing this again, maybe in the spring?

    • Welcome! I think this forum is a great place to learn more about the golf swing. There are of course a ton of resources out there to find with search engines, books, videos etc., but it can be a challenge to navigate it all for the best content. There's a lot of misinformation out there. This forum already has a lot of existing content and you can start new topics yourself. One thing a forum provides is discussion, different points of view and a place to put your thoughts into words. The best way to learn is often by teaching, because you have to know what you are talking about. Most of us aren't teachers, instructors or pros, but we can still discuss the golf swing, use the resources we find and put it into our own words. If we get it wrong, someone else may point it out. If you want to share, the Member Swings subforum is a place to post your own swing and get feedback. Technology has come a long way, and combined with dedicated people around the world, it's easier than ever to find accurate information. They use the best players in the world to find commonalities and distill the golf swing down to what is almost universally true for all the best players. That means to ignore Scheffler's feet, Furyk's octopus and other outliers, but focus on what they have in common. The essentials which amateurs should also try to achieve.
    • So I'm a 2 handicap and I know my golf swing is garbage but I also know I have a very very limited understanding of how the golf swing works. And I also know that I'm the type of guy that likes to dive ultra deep into topics I'm interested in. Like for example; The past few years I've learned video editing (specifically how to make videos that go viral on social media), and I've spent a lot of time just reading the manual that came with one of the video editing programs I use. (the manual is 4.5k pages, and obviously very indepth, but I've learned a ton with it.) So far to try and learn more about the golf swing I've read books + listened to podcasts/interviews with coaches/teachers combined with listening to great players talk/give clinics. Sometimes the teacher being interviewed talks about books that they really like, or coaches they look up to, and then I "travel down the knowledge tree" and try to look for those peoples interviews, content etc. Ex, An interview with Randy Smith led me to Chuck Cook, then Chuck Cook led me to reading the books by Jim Hardy (mainly the + and - book). I'm well aware that the knowledge I'm getting is surface level but again I don't really know where to "go" to learn in depth about the swing. To try and supplement the knowledge gap, I've made a set-up in my basement where I have two mirrors + a webcam I can use to film myself and dissect my own swing + watch pro swings and try to figure out what they do. But again, I know I'm not really getting the full picture. So my question is, is there a better place to go/process I could apply to learn about the golf swing? I know there's The Golfing Machine but isn't that mostly outdated information now, and there's no real updated version, right? I don't really want to hire a teacher, partly because I don't really trust most teachers (I've had some really bad experiences lol), and I want to be self-sufficient as a player. My line of thinking is, the better I can understand the golf swing, the better I can understand my own swing. Where do I go? Also I should note, I have a ton of time to devote to the game + the golf swing, I basically work from home and I'm in a very fortunate position where I have a very low living cost. Cheers.          
    • Day 43: Hit 20 balls with 6-iron, working with new feel. Seemed to work okay, but start line is a little more right than I’d like to see. Hit 15 Almost Golf balls with driver, same feel. Did pitching.chipping practice, focusing on good contact. Putted in home office for 20 min using my dog’s Kong as a target.
