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.

I'm curious how you can film at Rancho Park. I just got a camera capable of recording faster than 30 fps, and I don't think I can get the facing view done at that practice facility.

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.

    • You responded to someone who posted 10 years ago.
    • Even in a big city, trying to ban guns only helps the criminals. Criminals don’t turn in their guns, only the law abiding citizens which are being unarmed. Pretty simple stuff.
    • Day 159.  Periodic 6-iron shots (at least one block of at least five minutes) during breaks in a long meeting schedule.  Indoors, off a mat, into a net, priority piece related to backswing length. I also tried quarantine day 13 drill (high pitches/flops), something I don't know how to do, and I think I was doing the drill wrong.  All my shots went left.  Thankfully, I was using foam balls.  I'm going to review the video later (time permitting), along with what people tried when those drills were released and see if their feedback applies to me, and try again
    • I changed out the the bag this year going over to Ping from primarily Tayormade clubs. Driver: Ping G-410   12 degree Ping G-410  5wood Ping G-410. 7 wood Ping G410. 5 hybrid Ping G410 5 iron to PW   I was fitted to play Orange dot which is 2 degrees flat for my irons. Playing around with the adjustable driver and metal woods. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    • It was a new course.  You get a pass.  Next time you need to keep it around 3 hours.  😁😉
