Does anyone know if the Slingshots can be adjusted?

Should I wait till my handicap drops a little more as well?


i'd think someone in a shop might be leary about trying to bend those irons any more than 1* up/flat...cast clubs are usually a no-no for shops b/c they don't want em to break and have to replace them for you or any other customer. personally, i think you being an 11 handi, as anyone could benefit for being fitted for clubs...i'd say if you're thinking about getting new clubs and have the wearwithall, it might be worth getting new sticks tailored/fit for you than it would be on spending a $100 or so on gambling to get the slingshots fixed for you. that's not including if the pro fitting you thinks that you need new shafts as well...just food for thought.

Read this carefully:  buy as much golf gear as you can before you get married.

This... or buy an engagement ring then you will have a small window to buy whatever you want without ramifications.

    • My goodness, you aren't kidding. For those who don't see the article for whatever reason:  there's a list of the top 25 fastest times ever recorded in the women's 1,500 meter freestyle swim.  Katie Ledecky owns spots 1-13, and also spots 15, 17, 18, 22, and 25.   The closest thing to that I can think of offhand is in threes.  Tiger Woods owns the top three season-long strokes gained: approach ever recorded (granted, these have only been recorded in, I believe, the Shotlink era), and at one point (up until a few years ago), Kurt Warner threw the most yards ever in a Super Bowl, but was also in second and third place on that list. 
    • Day 155.  Quarantine practice plan, day 11.  I really like this drill and I plan to incorporate it into my practices on a regular basis.  I took video but it's still on my phone, I will likely put it in the relevant thread tomorrow afternoon. 
    • Day 28: Long day at work, so not much time left for golf practice today. Managed some work on downswing priority piece, hit 10 balls, 7-iron, lots of rehearsals between shots. 
    • Day 65, July 29, 2021: More three-quarters swing work.
    • It is also acceptable to take relief again, if necessary, from the same cart path for the shot now contemplated.  A common example: cart path is near a boundary object (OB fence) on the left. A right-handed player may take relief for a left-handed shot that has them standing on the cart path and the NPCR for the left handed shot is to the right of the cart path. After taking relief, the player may decide to hit a right-handed shot. But, now standing on the cart path for the right-handed shot, may take relief further to the right of the cart path to allow that shot.
