Anyone Want to Meet up for a Group AimPoint Lesson in Late March?

Recommended Posts

I've been meaning to learn AimPoint for about ever now. I was discussing this with @iacas and came up with an idea for a group meeting in March. 

Probably near the end of March to allow the students to start practicing it shortly after learning it. (I think AimPoint works in the snow but not as well.) I want to kick off the 2022 season using AimPoint. 

I'm assuming most of us would prefer a Saturday or a Sunday. With @iacas's schedule that would mean at or after 2:00 on Saturday or after 12:30 on Sunday. (He has juniors until those times.)

Three questions:

  1. Would you like to participate in an AimPoint class at Golf Evolution in late March?
  2. Would you prefer Sunday afternoon or Saturday late afternoon? 
  3. I'm thinking March 26-27th - ish. Is that weekend okay or would you prefer a different one? 

Group meet ups are always fun. Let me know what you all think.

Would love to but don’t think I’ll be back in the NE until May timeframe. I did AimPoint Express a year ago and I think it has been a huge help for me. Been wanting to do a refresher.

I would love to take an Aimpoint class. I would assume that this would be done on an actual green that has varying degrees of slope, or am I wrong?. Saturday or Sunday afternoon is fine. I can put that weekend on my calendar.

Golf Evolution has an indoor green with lots of varying slopes.

I was there recently, which is why I asked. Looks fairly flat to me. I would think that a place like the practice green at Whispering woods would be good where you can really see the fall line.

Thanks for the link, I wondered what was in the lower level. Due to the signage I dared not go down for a peek 😅 Members Only

The green rug area in the front, around the stairs that go to the lower level, is the green. There are lots of slope areas. IIFC, there is one area that is around a 4 and most area between 1 and 3.

I first learned AimPoint at Golf Evolution. You learn the method and then you can take it to any practice green you want.

The bathroom.

It was built specifically to teach AimPoint. It’s got 0-6% slopes.

One of the 30 foot putts breaks 7 or 8 feet.

so if you think it’s flat then you probably need to learn AimPoint. 🙂

    • Day 13: Mirror work again. Still on set up. I think my hips are more over my heels now, so now I’m mostly focused on having my knees bent a bit more. 
    • Thanks Bill. It's interesting that you consider the DG to be a low trajectory shaft. It makes me think that the fitter really didn't care enough to try to increase my apex to attempt to accommodate my low spin rate. He didn't take any measurement for club length either, so I'm apparently standard everything, but stiffer shaft to accommodate my swing speed.   To be fair, the fitter did say exactly that - they will adjust the lie angle if it doesn't work for me, but like I said in another reply, how would I ever know if it is not working for me if I don't have a basis for comparison with other lie angles? I also have fairly short legs, yet bizarrely a 35.5" wrist to floor measurement - which puts me at 2 degrees upright, according to Ping... Hence my concern that I'm just "standard" everything.
    • What shaft is your friend using?  Maybe a good place to start is that shaft profile.  From there, you have a pretty nice budget to get whatever irons you want.
    • @Nick-uk Just a thought, you can always get your lie adjusted (whether you do it now or later).  It’s pretty simple to have done down the road.  I had mine adjusted 1 degree upright after the fact. FWIW… We’re similar height, similar distance with the 7i.  I’ve been playing the DG S300 and S400 for as long as I’ve been playing, and very happy with them.  I did try different shafts once, ran back to the DG.  I can only assume the DG product life has existed for a long time for a reason. Also, unless someone is quite short or tall, most people will be fine with a “standard” fit.
    • Unless I’m working off of outdated information, the standard Dynamic Gold shafts haven’t really changed much in decades. They’re known to be low launch and high spin, kind of the preferred trajectory of yesteryear. Again, spin rate alone is not enough information, but low spin rate + low apex height suggests an issue to me. It could just be your swing, but it’s also possible that shaft doesn’t fit you anyway. Just for reference I’m a “low spin” ball striker myself, but my 7i averages 5900 rpm, not 4000. My average apex height is 95’ though. I play KBS Tours. I was fitted out of DG S300 years ago. They don’t work for me.
