A Statement with which I Most Disagree

85 posts in this topic

Let's play a little game.

This "contest" is open until the end of the year 2012. Only posts made prior to that time count.

I will ship a small prize pack (really, don't expect much, it's more for the heck of it) consisting of at least one custom TST ball marker to the person who posts the single statement (a sentence) of their own crafting (don't quote someone else, and if you do, at least try to be sneaky about it) pertaining to the golf swing with which Mike and I most disagree .

I don't even know what it is at this point, so it's not like there's an answer out there for certain. I'm curious what y'all come up with.

Contest is open to any members in good standing anywhere to whom I can ship a small prize for $10 or maybe $15 or less.

Again, post a statement about the golf swing with which Mike and I most disagree and you win.

Have fun! No personal comments, either. :)

Amateurs shouldn't try to swing like professionals, or model their swings on those of great players because we can't replicate their moves.

"I get too much sidespin " ... when you have proven that its not sidespin at all, it's tilting of the axis of the golf ball that creates curvature of ball flight.

Swing to the top while maintaining a flexed trail knee, then rotate your hips as fast and hard as you can.

Beachcomber is in the process of a complete overhaul of his golf swing which he should have figured out by next week.

Feel is'nt real. What someone thinks they feel they are doing in the golf swing.

having your weight back and releasing the club head are ingredients to draw the ball

That's good so far guys.

The ball marks one doesn't count. It's not about the golf swing.

"Enter" as often as you like, but if you borrow someone else's and don't improve upon it appreciably, the first poster wins the tiebreaker.

Oh, and Mike doesn't know I'm doing this, so he's in for quite a surprise. :)

Your head should always move rearward during the backswing, to ensure a proper weight shift to the rear foot.

The hook is the better player's miss.

    • This is why I joined a Country Club here in No. Virginia, when I first moved to the area, I couldn't believe it took me 5-5.5 hours to play 18 holes on the weekend.  That lasted a couple of summers and then I took the dive to joining a Country Club, which for me is well worth the cost. 
    • I went through the same experimentation phase with my "standard" clubs when I first began thinking about single length clubs a couple years ago, and as @inthecup mentioned, the results were not good -- the gaps were not good, the swing weights were different (because the head weights were different), lies were wrong, etc. But, I saw enough of an improvement in ball striking (i.e. not hitting fat as often on the long irons) that I tried the Pinhawks (ValueGolf). Aaron @ Value Golf has been selling Pinhawks for a couple years, but increasing demand for single length irons seems to outstrip supply occasionally (resulting in stock-outs). So if you're serious about trying it, sooner would be better than later -- I recently had to wait 30 days to send a contest winner their iron heads because they were completely out and were waiting for their next manufacturing run to be delivered.  
    • That sounds less like a slow play issue and more like a no play issue. I'd imagine your guys plopped down somewhere for a late afternoon picnic. They probably engaged in a few ball-hunting expeditions and may have taken a swim in a water hazard.  
    • Have been using one for a few months now and love it.  Has taken about 3 putts off my normal putts per round average.  Where I see the biggest difference is with my lag putting.  Has not made any difference with short putts, but I tend to miss the center of the face on longer putts and I have noticed a pretty significant difference.  The ball gets closer to the hole whereas my old Scotty would spray it further left, right, or short.   I am very confident it is giving me a chance at less 3 putts which was the biggest reason I bought one.   Its a very legit putter.  Worth trying out, but absolutely make sure to go to someone who knows how to fit for a putter.
    • I usually play munis. I try to have no time expectations (or for that matter, game expectations lol) when playing golf. I leave my house 45 minutes before a round, and usually get home 5 hours and thirty minutes later. 18 holes is anywhere from 4 to 4.5 hours. If I have later appointments I book golf earlier.  Over the past month I have invited a new person to golf on two separate occasions. (we are not trying to grow the game, just have an enjoyable outing with family or friend) We planned only 9 holes. Walking 9 holes and flailing at a little white ball tires a new comer. They have no idea of what pace of play means. We explained it and played pick up the f-----g ball if we started losing contact with those in front. We have a local 9 hole muni. It is often populated by occasional golfers. It is rated as intermediate difficulty. It is often slower on weekends and holidays. If I want to play there I either pick a different time or smell the roses.  If its two non golfing couples playing in front of us, I smell the roses. They have no clue what pace of play means, nor do they care. To me "golf is too slow" sounds like road rage. Golf is not instant gratification. Never has been. Need will be.
