Hi guys, I use Rancho's practice area all the time and do a lot of formalized practice.  If you ever want to join me, feel free to post or send me a message.  I'd be happy to film your swing, or comment on anything that I see.

I'm actually going over to practice tonight.

Best,

Shawn

That's hilarious ... you guys have probably crossed paths several times without even knowing it.  Heck, you might even be an "extra" in one of Beach's myswing videos.

I always figure that everytime I'm at a busy range, that one of those people must have heard of TST, and maybe is even a member.  Then again, maybe not.  I'm always wondering when somebody will see my "Sandtrap" alignment sticks, or my ball mark, and recognize them.

I was going to go tonight with the driver I was supposed to buy.  I went to purchase the 913 and brought my current driver (burner 2.0 cut to 44" with Motore F1 Shaft) and compared the numbers on the monitor to the 913.  The 913 didn't really come close to my current driver.  I had a much better ball flight, lower spin, longer carry and longer average distance with my driver.  And im able to shape the ball a lot better.  I was kind of bummed cause i wanted to get titleist driver to match my new titleist irons.  :(

I am going to go to the range tomorrow at like 6pm if anyone is there.  Also playing at 6am and 1137am on sunday at RJS

Looks like you're gonna have to use a different range for a bit Beach....

Quote:

Rancho San Joaquin Golf Course is very excited to announce a complete renovation to our driving range! Starting Tuesday, February 19th, 2013 the entire Learning Center will be closed for approximately 4 weeks.

Changes will include a complete overhaul of the landing area, two additional target greens, grass turf, and many other amenities upgrades.

Shoot ... I'm gonna have to make my way up there to see what it looks like when they're done.

And hopefully, Lake Forest's driving range is next up on American's list of renovations.  That place needs it almost just as badly!

Yeah, they changed the date to the 19th.  Originally they had a sign posted that they were going to close the range on 2/4... And I went over on 2/5 just to see what they were doing and it was open.  But the sign hadn't changed... So I wasn't sure what was going to happen.  Then I went back tonight and sure enough, they updated the sign and it now reads 2/19.

I just hope they don't raise the prices! LOL

Oh, and it was cold as hell tonight.  The first 10+ balls felt like rocks.

lol ... Beach never specified but he's talking about Rancho San Joaquin in Irvine.  I'm not sure how he gets FO there either, as you need a few open stalls in front of you to do it, and that place is usually packed. :)

I use the Go Pro Hero 3, mounted onto a tripod. The field of view is wide, so you can set it in the stall next to you. When mounted at chest height, it doesn't pick up the shank guard.

That makes much more sense. I'm sure at non-peak hours it's very possible to film there.

    • If your hands are high up at both address & impact, should your iron address position be toe up or flush with the ground?  
    • I'm confused by this. How would they know the ball is embedded if it's lost? Or are they just claiming that since it was lost it must have been embedded? Isn't there a rule regarding casual water where if its known or virtually certain your ball is in the casual water you would get free relief even if you cant find your ball? Would the same thing apply to an embedded ball?   Good luck proving this one. I believe there has to be spoken/acknowledged intent by both players in order to make it backstopping. Do you actually see instances where players speak out loud that they are doing it to help out another player?
    • I see this often in casual golf.  Frequently if playing a new course with someone who "Knows" the course they inevitably tell you how to play each hole as if they are your caddie.
    • Played a strange 85-shots round at my home course yesterday. 1/13 fairways and 4/18 greens (12/18nGIR) was actually flattering with the long game I displayed. An absolute horrorshow of ballstriking. Thinned it, sliced it, shanked it, pulled it and duffed it short, left and right.  Hull 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Out 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 In Totalt   Par 5 3 4 3 4 4 4 3 5 35 5 3 4 4 5 3 4 4 5 37 72   Truls Ljådal Utslagssted:     --              Gul              Hvit              Rød           5 3 5 4 4 4 5 4 5 39 8 5 4 4 5 3 5 6 6 46 85                                               Fairway RIGHT   LEFT   RIGHT LEFT RIGHT   HIT 1/6 LEFT   RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT   RIGHT LEFT RIGHT 0/7 1/13   GIR Y Y N N Y N N N Y 4/9 N N N N N N N N N 0/9 4/18   Putts 2 2 1 1 2 1 1 2 2 14 2 2 1 1 1 1 2 1 2 13 27     Upside: From 50 yards and in was excellent and I made 9 up'n'downs from 50 yards and in and no 3-putts. I haven't hit a single 3-putt on my homecourse in the last 5 rounds. My long game can't possibly get any worse and I still shot 85 and 36 stableford points. 
    • This is one of those that depend on the situation.  If you do have a cart path right next to the hazard and your two club lengths drop comes into there, you are entitled to free relief from the path (ball or stance).  In theory you should mark the spot, then take relief from that spot as GUR relief, but many people choose to do it all at once
