Golf. I like the 50 or so pages the magazine dedicates to stopping specific problems with people's games. At least once a month, I'll have a problem that's listed in the book, and try to fix it like so.

Not particularly a fan of Golf Digest - not many of the articles caught my eye. Although by now I really wish I hadn't tossed the issue with Stack and Tilt in it, because I really want to give it a shot.

I subscribe to Golf only because when I decieded to order a golf magazine, they had the best deal. My dad get Digest and they seem to have bigger name's for their articles like Tiger, Butch and Leadbetter. That hasn't swade me to switch magazines though.

My pick is Golf Digest. While Golf may have more lessons in each issue, Golf Digest's articles tend to be more interesting (and better written) and their coverage of the game and the players is much better. Also, Golf Digest's equipment reviews are much better.

I get them both but I personally find that GolfWeek and GolfWorld have the best information, at least for my tastes. I probably would give the edge to Golf Digest too.

If you could subscribe to one and only one of the above, which would it be and why?

Neither, which wasn't one of the options in the poll.

Right now I am getting GOLF magazine, but it's a free scubsciption. For some reason Time-Warner offered a free subscription to their customers in my area.

Man, that would be a very difficult choice. I think that every month, one is better than the other but over time that seems to even out. I looked at the last few months though and picked digest, because it seemed as though I read them more intently and retained info better.

Its funny that this question comes up now. I haven't really been heavy on either magazines as of late, but as a kid I'd always had a subscription to Golf Magazine. But, I got my hands on the latest issue of Golf Digest. It had a really nice interview with Arnold Palmer, and I guess Tiger Woods writes articles for Gold Digest too. (along with other top touring pros). I've been waiting on pulling the trigger on getting myself a GD subscription.

I don't know if I would categorize what tiger does for GD as "articles". There are some nice tips, but 2 paragraphs doesn't count for me as an article.

I personally subscribe to GD, Golf, and Links magazine. I like how Links focuses on courses around the world. I like things in GD like "What's in my bag". I like breaking 100, 90, 80, 70. That stuff helps.

Golf Digest here..I like the little booklets in each issue. I tear them out and put them in my bag. They just have little quick fixes and tips that are pretty interesting. It's also the only magazine that Tiger, Ernie, Anika, Butch Harmon, Leadbetter, and many other of the game's top players and teachers write for. Articles are interesting and fun to read. Might end up with both though since Golf is running a special right now.

I get Golf in the mail and it is ok.
HOWEVER : It takes half an hour to rip out all the stiff card "offers" they insert between pages. Can't read the damn thing til I do that

    • I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I usually play Wednesdays and Fridays also the odd Monday  . If I don’t play Monday I will often go and have some practice, either that or a Tuesday. I often take the Driver , 3 wood 4,5 & 6 irons out of the bag and go with the rest. Learn to hit shots with the clubs I have ,stop around the green have a few chips ,pitches putts etc.  Also I read Dave Pelz’s short game book a while back. I’ve adapted my bike and can fit a wedge on it. At night I go down to the corner of a mown area by sports fields. I take turns of which wedge, and do pitch & 2 different ‘finesse’ swings. Over summer I’ve gotten a pretty fair idea of how far I hit the various swings & it’s definitely paid dividends . I regularly get up & down from under 100 yards, especially under 40/50.  Before I just sort of guessed which club, and the other benefit is swinging slower I find I’m much more accurate with my direction. 
    • One of the things I have noticed about really good Youtube channels - let alone excellent films, is exactly this. There might be a time lapse that would take hours to video, but it is on screen for perhaps less than two seconds. But it gives the presentation quality. Look at films with incredible special effects and costumes/props - Lord of the Rings, for example. Years and years go into making things like a belt that a camera may never even focus on, or be a hundred metres a way, but the film wouldn't work without them.The total is greater than the sum of its parts. The flip side of this, of course, is that a prop that takes 5 minutes to make and looks like crap it is noticeably crap even if it is on screen for half a second, like a poorly photoshopped "family portrait" or newspaper "front page" with a stuck on headline on paper not even close to the colour of the newspaper. The devil is in the detail and tiny things connect to make the big picture. A bit like golf, perhaps.
    • I’d rather have it shut than open. I can find a swing where it’s more shut than that. Open doesn’t work for me, the extended lead wrist gets me steep and I shallow late, leave the face too open (or shank) going to A7. The last 3 instructors I’ve worked with have told me to bow the lead wrist at 4 more and I’ll get away from that and get steep.  When I try and do that my arms come off my chest and path goes too out to in. When I feel like I drop the club behind me at A4 my arms will go out towards the ball pretty good I think, like in the second swing, at A5 my hands bisect the torso. 
    • My 2 cents is that if you have to add more than 1.5" or so, you are really in need of new shafts. As far as "orange dot length" is concerned, I always thought that the dot color only denoted lie angle, not length. For example, if I were to order Pings, I would want blue dot (1" upright) at standard length (I fall on the short end of standard range). I just came across an old post on here that give a good Ping chart. Don't comment in there unless it is really pertinent though, as it is quite an old thread.
