St. Louis Golf Expo summary

2 posts in this topic

Ended up going to the Expo both Friday and Saturday.

Met Club Rat about 11:30 AM. We skipped lunch and got into line, which was very long already. Club Rat works on golf clubs as a hobby, and we talked about shafts and different ways to tweak clubs.

For Friday, I mainly visited the exhibits, talked to people, and listened to the presenters.

Jo D. Duncan Armstrong , contestant in Big Break IV and six-time women's Re/Max World Long Drive Championship finalist, gave a presentation about stabilizing the lower body. Jo D. has set up in the St. Louis area now, serving as Director of Instruction at the classic Norwood Hills C.C.

Michael Wyatt , well known area teaching pro, talked about teaching golf to persons with handicaps or lingering effects of injuries. It turns out that Michael has straighted out the golf swings of both teamroper60 and me.

And, there was Ed LeBeau of Heartland Golf Schools, local site located near Annbriar G.C. Ed is a proponent of the Manuel de la Torre swing method - club position vs. body position emphasis - and was checking out people's swings. Be sure to catch Ed's new golf blog, , in which he offers alternatives to "hit down on the ball" golf.

Friday evening I had supper with teamroper60, AKA Chuck, and his wife Bernie. As I mentioned earlier, Chuck and I both had lessons from Wyatt. Chuck started playing about two years ago, and is a devoted Callaway person, as is Bernie. Due to his job, Chuck can usually play a few times a week after work.

On Saturday, I went back and mainly hit clubs. I'll make comments on my tests as the model comes up in the Clubs, Grips forum.

    • When voting on national issues and for POTUS, why not one person one vote and skip the state involvement so that every individuals vote is on the same level with others regardless of state.   CA, TX, FL, NY, IL basically control the election, CA and NY are already democrat states, Florida is leaning left.  If Texas ever goes democrat it will be virtually impossible for a Republican candidate to win an election under the current electoral college system.  
    • Oh yea, gotta love it when a friend has to have the latest and greatest and gives you that 1/2 or 1 season old gear. I get new sleeves of golf balls all the time as everyone at work just hands them to me because that's not the brand they play or they don't need anymore. I have 2 stand bags I got for free that were pretty much new.  Oh, I don't like Taylor Made or I don't play Titleist!  I'll take em! I also get nice golf shirts all the time as well.  Can't remember the last time I bought a Polo shirt. I guess I do pretty good on the freebie golf side. 
    • Indians and Cubs in the World Series. Wow, freak show. Pardon me. I'm going to go get guns, bullets, liquor and many cans of spam, and go to the bunker. Clearly the world is about to end.
    • I always liked to think that the voting for elections, referandums etc. in the UK was pretty straight forward. In its basic form, for a general election lets say, we simply go to the polling station (provided the voter is registered) and are given a piece of paper with the names of the Parties or candidates running in the election, put a cross in the box next to the one you want to vote for and pop it in the ballot box. I think it's the fairest way of doing it. If you get the most votes you win. Yes, there is more that goes on in the back ground but in laymans terms thats it really. We did have issues with regards to Brexit, with people admitting they voted to leave the EU because, in their own words, "we didnt think it would actually happen".  In the case of Brexit the system fell down somewhat because the larger percentage  of the leave vote were the "older" generation and many of the "remain" were the younger (think a report said group were the under 25's), student voters and only about 70 or so percent (dont quote me on that may be a little less) actually turned out to vote, again because they didnt think "leave" would win so they didnt bother. We are still moaning about it now (we Brits are good at moaning) Its a simple voting system but only works when people can be bothered to go and vote, even though you can do it on-line! Now, if we had the US style voting god know what would happen as i have no idea how you guys cope, it seems so confusing 
    • Got to love em. Helps to know guys that love to buy lots of equipment.
