Nice, Dave!

Erik - if you can keep it in mind, be sure to send me a message the next time that you plan on traveling through my area. I would definitely like to meet up and play 18 with you, or schedule a brief lesson or 2.

I'll try. A lot of the time it's a bit more spur of the moment. :) For somewhat obvious reasons we play at Fox Meadow a decent amount.

Fox is a beautiful course, private, on Route 57. It is also literally 10 minutes from my home lol. There's also some "trophy wife" scenery in your surroundings since the majority of the homes that sit on it are between $500K-2M. It's always nice when you're setting up to a 210 approach to a Par 5 in 2, only to suddenly turn your head and notice that a friendly wind gust blew a sun dress up! LOL Mark me down as an 8, I'm a dog.

There's another really nice, public, course off of 57 called Ridge Top.

Anyway, I can PM my # or Email to you. We can try to work something out in terms of that Erie, PA visit for lessons and maybe a mid-summer round.

I spend a lot of time in the area and have an apartment in Aurora.  Play out of Lake Forest CC in Hudson - which is a little closer your way.

Any of you guys play Brandywine in Penninsula?  My folks used to live near there.  Talk about a Jekel and Hyde course - beautiful hilly front nine, dull, flat and boring back nine.

    • Nice pics! I can tell you're good at what you do.  From the pics, they remind me of Ping Ansers

    • Putting practice is very different from one player (and especially skill level to the next).   here are my impressions.   it is true that 30-50% of all shots are from the green.  but, you can't really look at it that way, because even on a good putting day, half of those are inevitable.  If you two putt every single green in regulation, I doubt you're gonna be too down on yourself.  so really, the strokes you are adding or subtracting from your card are the number of 3-putts and 1-putts.   For your average golfer, there are really just two things you need to accomplish to putt well.   Making every putt under 6 feet.  and putting every putt outside that 6-foot circle to within the circle.   1) making every putt within 6 feet this is really just about repetition.  and it really doesn't matter where you are getting your reps.  I have an 8 ft putting mat in my living room.  If I spend an hour just hitting balls on this over, and over, and, over, I notice is great deal of improvement in making my 5 footers.  I know it sounds simple, but just learning how to repeatedly hit the ball straight and having the confidence standing over the ball to hit it straight makes a huge difference.   note: I assume as you get better and better at golf (and putting), this method of practice will have less and less of a positive impact.  This really only helps you become confident in your putting stroke, once you've got that down, you've got bigger fish to fry.   2) hitting everything outside that 6 foot circle to within 6 feet.   This one is a bit trickier.  I think the best practice for this one is to get to a practice green and putt from many different distances.  and changing it up very frequently (as opposed to putting many balls from one distance and then moving).  This one is all about feel.  and feel only comes with practice.     If you can get really good at these two simple skills, you can certainly become a passable putter.   Now the next step is raising your conversion rate on 10-15 foot putts.   I think this step takes a lot more work and a much better understanding of how to read a green as well as being a lot more precise with your pace.   If I ever figure this stuff out, I'll do my best to share.               
    • 8/31/16: Slower backswings with a slightly faster through swing. Swinging at perhaps 60-65% of my "normal speed" I honestly don't lose much distance with it. So I think I might use this for a while. "Ledge" gave me this tip on Sunday. (After my match). He told me, I would be more consistent with it, so I'm giving it a shot. As August has 31 days, I've completed the "5 Minutes Daily" challenge for August. @iacas, how do I make text red in mobile?
