Played Golf With Mick Soli Today

11 posts in this topic

I played with Mick Soli and his son today at Popular Creek golf coures in San Mateo, California and what a pleasure it was. He is a true gentleman and great father. I truly enjoyed playing with a pro and actually seeing how well he hit all his shots. He had several eagles opportunities and many birdies.

For my next golf lessons he is the one to see.

I shot my low round at Poplar (81), never saw Mr. Soli there in the many times I've played. I played with Michael Michaelides (Big Break Michigan) who played on some mini tours I think.

That guy looks money! I think I'll sign up for his 4-course short game lessons.

Mick Soli can play, He drove the 7th hole with a 3 wood, he had monster drives on 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,13,14, he almost drove the green on 11. His short games is just as impressive.

Yeah I've seen pro's play in person and just the way their shot comes off the club is pretty incredible not to mention the consistency at which they can replicate that same shot.

i played with a few guys and my cousin who are now on various tours back in college. one of my buddies was on the n-wide tour, played with him a few months ago. he was hacking it up that day, but somehow managed to be one under par.

I have no idea who that is.

" Mick played on the PGA tour from 1979 to 1985. He continues to play in NCPGA tournaments and was player of the year in 1995, 1997, and 1998.

Mick teaches full time at Mariners Point Golf Links in Foster City, CA. With over 20 years of teaching experience in the Bay Area, Mick has been named among the “Top Teachers in the State” by Golf Digest and “Top 50 Teachers in the US” by Golf Range Magazine..."

He is, I witness it myself, the best player that I have played with. also a true gentleman, modest, great father.

I asked him what his lowest round he shot was and he only answered that it's been a long time. He talked with his son throughout the round and you can tell they are very close. One hole I was standing close to he flag and he still came over to pick up the flag and I had to waive him off.

I've had the opportunity to play with Bob May, Bill Lunde, and David Branshaw. All great golfers and a lot of fun to be around. All have out of this world short game (then again it was their home course)

I was fortunate enough to play 9 holes with Mick and a friend at Sharp Park many years ago.  I'm sure it was over 20 years ago.  My friend was taking lessons from Mick at the time and I got to join them for a playing lesson.  He's a hell of a good golfer and a hell of a good guy!  He's pretty humble and doesn't seem to want to talk that much about his golf career.  I do know that he was on the Tour at one time and I believe he still holds the course record (along with several other players) at Doral's Blue Monster.  Ask if about it!

    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway. Putting again wasn't as good as it has been and I just haven't felt like I'm going to hole anything outside of 6 feet. Highlights were the first four holes, particularly feeling like DJ or Rory on the 4th, a good par on 7 (see below) and a good last four holes - bar another lost ball on 18...  http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/1072354 My par on the 7th - only swing I recorded was a really nice punch 5 iron from 170 into a strong breeze: 3rd tee: 'Secret' 6th green: Looking back on the 13th green: I get a few days' rest now before my last couple of rounds, both at Machrihanish Dunes. I've learnt a lot about my game playing these two rounds that I hadn't known beforehand. I find it really hard when I don't know the line and have to guess and commit to the shot far less. If I can see it though, it's generally fine. I need to sort the driving in the wind out as there's just no room for error - a slight mishit and a ball that would be safe is gone. Additionally, particularly at Turnberry, I need to stop overthinking things. Occasionally I'd find myself trying to hit a 7 iron with the ball miles back in my stance to deloft it, aiming way left to compensate and just should have hit what I felt comfortable with and taken the hit with the wind. My putting has to get better as well, particularly from range. So much fun though and I will definitely play Western Gailes again (probably more of a certainty than Turnberry) - I loved the course and the welcome you get was amazing.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. The main thing I've taken away from this trip though is that I need to control my driver in the wind better. A lot of times, it was definitely the play and my second shot was excellent, but I lost too many going with the wind, which probably wouldn't have been too bad without it. Partial wedges were really good again and approach play was generally alright. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway.

    • Lake Mead. It's down 150' +/-, and still losing about 5' every year. 
    • Well the head of the pros looks quite steady in the horizontal movement. I just want to emphasize that swing in a barrel and steady head can harm your swing especially if your swing is already good. 
    • Sounds similar, I have never heard any one with this swing thought just hope it's not a one time fluke.It makes sense though if your belly button follows your club head all the way back and through with arms connected to body you can't get ahead or behind with your swing , if  that make sense , don't have to think of anything else it just happens naturally perfect rythem  and a nice draw I also visualize the swing path and try to keep club head on that path
