Any of ya'll ever play at Birch Creek? We were on vacation a couple of years ago on our way to a float trip and saw the sign from I44 and decided to stop and play.

I don't know what ya'll are used to playing but I enjoyed it. Next time through there I'm curious to see if I can improve my score any.

Bluffs can be had for cheap if you go through golfnow.com. We play there for $30-$40 a couple of times a year. I've never heard of birch creek, looking it up now.

Saturday features a Golf, Fitness and Health Expo at Stonewolf GC in Fairview Heights, IL.

Events include chipping and putting contests, video swing analysis, plus tips on training, nutrition, equipment options, etc. I hope the snow melts, or it will be indoors.

From what I can gather on this site, it is a system that teaches the golf swing based around 5 swing keys. If you search the forums, you will notice that quite a few of the instructors and members endorse this system.

Sounds like Stonewolf is worth playing.  Lived on the east side years ago but still have family in the Lebanon/Mascoutah area.  Going to be there for a week in May and will be bringing the clubs along.  Anyone familiar with Stonebridge near Collinsville, IL?  I used to live in C'ville before it was built but thought I'd like to try it.

Thanks

    • For those who don't show clubs in your sig line. I currently carry: 1-3-5 "woods" 2-SW (mid 90's loft angles, unlike stronger modern lofts) Putter I probably don't need the 5W, and I'd like to try a hybrid or two. Some day...  
    • Ok thanks. I feel like I am stuck right between reg and stiff. Hard to tell though as the last time I hit stiff flex in my irons my ball striking wasn't as good or as consistent. I play stiff flex in my driver, 3 wood and hybrids but that's mainly for consistency. I've always had a high ball flight since I started playing golf but lately it's become ridiculously high. Do you guys think moving over to stiff flex would help with lowering the ball flight.

      http://www.gamegolf.com/player/roamin/round/1613273 Beautiful (and hot!) Florida sunshine, four rounds of golf, and $20 buck on skins. Great weekend! Highlights were, first and foremost, the 39 on the front nine this morning (a personal best), and the amazing par, birdie, par finish to the day.
    • Four rounds this weekend, two on Saturday and two on Monday. Shot 89, 90, 84, 91. Today was skins day and luckily, my highlight round came this morning. The front nine was just awesome, shot 39 with six pars and three bogeys. Then got stupid on the 10th after the first bad drive of the day and hit a tree, twice (well, different trees ), and made triple. Three more pars and nothing worse than a single after that, to finish with an 84. Fifty cent skins, plus extra skins for birdies, and low score on front, back, and overall for each round. I was up by 20 skins on the 18th in the second round when we went double or nothing.   I hit my longest drive of the day, at 274 yards, with a perfect angle left to the par 5 green. Then hit a perfect 3W and ended up 6 feet off the front-left edge of the green. Thinned the pitch-shot a little and it rolled about ~15 feet passed the hole...two-putt for par. My buddy had hit a tree with his 3W (bad angle off the tee), and finished with a double. $20 bucks! Cha-ching! What a great weekend! 
    • Austin had a great swing but other than the "macro" moves I don't see many similarities to DJ. - Austin had a slightly weak or neutral grip, DJ uses a strong one
      - Austin raised his left heel on the backswing 
      - DJ has a much more flexed lead wrist on the backswing and downswing
      - Austin goes into right pelvic tilt and with more axis tilt on the downswing where DJ maintains left pelvic tilt longer
      - DJ is more rotational while Austin had more "leg drive".
