#18 With Sir Nick


jmanbooyaa

Recommended Posts

It looks like Sir Nick Faldo has entered into the youtube space. His first episode is with Actor Chris Pratt. He gives some tips and spends most of the time asking Pratt questions about his acting. They don’t really show too much actual golf. Anyone else check this out?

Yes, I watched it.  I think it was pretty good and held my interest for the entire video.  It'll be interesting to see the people that he is able to get on his channel.  I assume they will be notable considering he is Nick Faldo.

At the end of the video he said Pratt was the 2nd guest. So the 2nd guest was the first episode.

The star of the show has to be the Jupiter Hills Golf Club. I have never played there, only heard about it. It's built on the sand ridge in Hobe Sound and it is gorgeous! From US 1 all you can see is the massive clubhouse built on the highest point so the inside look at the course just confirms the stories of its beauty are true. 

The episode is more entertainment with an interview and some golf mixed in. It's a good start for Sir Nick carving out a niche spot in the YouTube golf market.

Meh, I'll pass.

There's already enough content in the YouTube golf space I don't need another channel to watch/keep up with especially since I don't really care for or have any desire to watch Faldo. Maybe if there's a particular guest I'm really interested in I'll tune in but that'd be about it.

He did have Jack on but the was with an interview format so I'm thinking he's counting that. Either that or it's his second filming with someone but the Pratt video was posted first for some reason.

    • Couple things to update First on the clubs/ball. I switched golf balls to the Left Dash ProV1x. It seems like a great fit for me. I always need lower spin off the tee, it's about a half club longer into greens, and still gives me enough spin with chips and pitches to hit whatever shot I need. The durability is insane too, played 35 holes with one over my last two rounds and it still looked brand new until I lost it. Hybrid is no longer. Couldn’t quite get a consistent strike and the random snap hook left was always lurking as soon as the strike drifted out towards the toe. I know it was me not the club but I couldn’t stand the lefts anymore. Titliest fitting guy came to our club a few days ago and I had been curious about the T200 3iron. I hit a few with it and the stock HZRDUS graphite shaft, it wasn’t bad at all but I could definitely tell when I mishit it. Then the fitter had me try the U505 3iron. When he asked if I was open to trying it I said something like “Isn’t that the game improvement one?” and he said “Just trust me and hit a few with it”. Within 5 swings I was sold. Suddenly it didn’t look as big and chunky when I started hitting rocket after rocket. It did every single thing I want a 3 iron to do. It flies very high, forgiving, can hit it off the tee and ground, can flight it low when needed, and best of all, it doesn’t go left. He had me try to snap hook one left and it resulted in a nice tight draw, nowhere close to a hook. Tried it with the stock shaft and their upgraded one, ended up hitting it the best with the Graphite Design Tour AD IZ-95. Ended up getting a great deal on a used one that arrived yesterday so going to go measure my numbers with it today at the range. I expect to be using this a lot for 2nd shots into par 5s, being that 230-250 club. Hit some on the Mevo+ yesterday and the distance is exactly what I needed.     From a playing perspective, been playing pretty solid so far this season, driving and putting have been solid overall, approach shots have been good for the most part and short game wasn't great to start the year but it's been getting better lately with some more dedicated practice. Compared to scratch over 7 rounds:
    • so with the driver. Feel more arm  width at A4. keep an in the eye on the ball. The first move from the top is lowering the hands down. Don’t mix that up with looking up at the target as the club comes down from A4 with the body. Feel like I get width with the arms from the chest in the Downswing.

    • Went back and reviewed my rounds this year at my home course to fill out the spreadsheet. Realized I have made at least par on each hole but two that I have bogied. At my skill level, it gives me a new confidence that I can play each hole decently well and strong together a lower score. Great mental boost. 
    • I'm at 330 I think. I have a spreadsheet with all of them in it. It helps having lived in two countries. 159 in the US and 136 in the UK. Then a handful in Europe and a few in other countries (Canada, Australia, Mexico).
