How do You Train?


Recommended Posts

I was checking out a bunch of different training aids and the one that I liked the most was the CTRL Swing Master. So I went to their site, bought the thing, and since April I have been using it. Wow. Its made a very noticible difference in my game. I've always been a pretty good player since highschool. I played for my school team, we were very good. I had a couple opportunities to play in college and turned them down because I got burned out. Now I've been semi focused on getting better again, I was a 4 going to about a 1 going back to a 5 based on how I practiced. I've always been a long hitter, that was all over the place and depended on working on my shortgame a few hours a week in order to stay down close to scratch. But the Swing Master changed that for me. I started using it and immediately saw improvement in ball striking and overall consistency. I'm now a much better ball striker. I still sit around a 1, but I really don't have to practice as much. I take swings probably a little over an hour a week. Just using the swing master to get my tempo perfect. Then I can go out hit 12 to 15 greens a round, and be much more accurate with my driver. I don't even practice shortgame much anymore. It isn't really needed unless I want to start playing in tournaments again. 

 

So my questions to yall, have you tried the Swing Master? I haven't seen anyone talking about it, nobody really using it. I know they are a newer company, but what gives? 

 

Also, what are you using to train and get better?

I feel like… if you look around, you'll answer the question for yourself. People use all sorts of things to train, including stuff you've already got lying around. Alignment sticks (or other clubs), etc.

You can look in this sub-forum, Member Swing topics… Swing Thoughts… the equipment forums… etc.

    • Yes for me its the opposite I play 60-70% of my Golf solo ...which I enjoy ..its my workout -mental health-work on my game .... sometimes if I have a comp coming up I really hope to do well in I'll play full 18 hole round and tee off 2x to 3x balls off each hole and usually add another ball or too when it comes to my short game .... is a real workout but I find it brilliant for endurance to my game hitting 200+ shots in a round ... (still have just one ball I keep a score to...) I am lucky to have a total population in my region of much less than 50k yet 5x courses I can play including my own for less than $30..weekdays usually very easy to just turn up without booking and get out .... you can decide your pace , tees ,go for those hero shots ,focus just on your game ... unlike my last monthly medal where one of the foursome found out I was a  fulltime ASX Sharetrader so wanted to talk about the sharemarket he was also trading which is fine but next minute my mind was thinking about the market(which it does 40hrs+ pw) and drove the ball OB !! my own mental weakness fault..  
    • Like I was saying he's under the radar but would have played well at the Pres cup ....now maybe  in the top 25 in the world .. will make the next Masters..... >>>>>>>>>>> When it comes to motivation, Ryan Fox didn’t glean much from being bypassed for Presidents Cup captain’s pick a few weeks back. However, as he navigated St. Andrews’ Old Course to the tune of 4-under 68 and a one-shot victory Sunday at the Alfred Dunhill Links, Fox was spurred on by something else: his late pro-am partner. “To be honest the only person I can really think of at the moment is Warnie,” Fox said on the 18th green afterward. Fox, the 35-year-old son of New Zealand rugby player Grant Fox, had paired with Australian cricket legend Shane Warne a few times in this event, including last year when the duo finished second. That marked the last appearance for Warne, a regular at the Dunhill Links who died from a suspected heart attack last March at age 52. “There was definitely some extra motivation there this week,” Fox added later. “Maybe not so much the Presidents Cup, but definitely to try to do something special for Warnie … and I'm pretty proud to have been able to accomplish that.” Fox, who ended last year at No. 213 in the world rankings, is now expected to rise inside the top 25, 
    • Obviously Fox saw the discussions here and proved a point yesterday
    • It's been a long time since I've played alone, but I'm looking forward to doing it again one day. I like it as an intermediate zone between the range and golf with other people. I find it much easier to play alone, and it allows me to practice shots I otherwise might not think to try if I was on the range. Added bonus that it's very peaceful and low stress, and it's a nice thing to mix into the routine.
    • I quit because I have to. It's kind of difficult to golf through 3 feet of snow. Right now my issue is a lot of family demands and very little light. Also I often have issues with heightened expectations when I haven't been playing great as of late.  Since becoming an avid golfer, I haven't really quit golf, I've just put it on pause.
