My Swing (Lihu)

Full swing irons today with Top Flight range balls at my home town. I'm just happy to be getting my swing back. I hit off the toe with quite a few shots, and the range balls were not the 1 pc Srixons but still kind of old looking.

We used copper tape with the corners nicked off with an Xacto knife after placing them on the cleanest range balls.

Nice work @Lihu. Looks like you're getting back to where you were before your break.

I like the height you're getting with your 7i, and the consistency between your best and worst shots is impressive.

Thanks.

Yeah, those would be my "gaming" swings rather than the "swing for the fences swings" I sometimes do on the range. :-D

If I remember correctly, you can hit your 8i 160 yards. But hitting a 7i 155 yards will get you around a 6300-6500 yard course, right?

You know what? I think I selected the wrong club in the application. My son seems to remember that I was hitting my 8i, but I'm not going to start an argument on this site about me not being able to hit my 8i that far. My typical 8i shot with premium balls is 154 according to game golf, and my 8i shots typically don't roll more than a yard or so. In any case, if it was 8i my spin numbers suck anyway. :-D

I doubt I could hit an 8i 160 yards. . .maybe a flyer?

For the average player, probably true.

I do often play 6400 yard courses, but prefer to play shorter if tees are available. It's a lot less "pressure" and more fun that way. 6000 yards is a lot more comfortable for me because of my so-so ball striking on the course.

Hi Everyone,

Still going to play golf, do my daily challenge and play my once a week game.

I’ll pop in every now and then. Getting too busy at work and my other activities.

Thanks for all the help this last year!

Loving my Flightscope Mevo! Worth every penny!

Getting too cold and dark so 10 holes. Shot about the same...again, score not too bad, playing sucked 🤪

Two more rounds...forgot to post here...

https://bnc.lt/yzOb/UC5n80ingT
Lihu M shot 59 at Brookside Golf Club (C.W. Koiner Course 1)

Nothing abnormal about this round. Hooked a drive deep right on the 12th then tried to recover with a 6i to the fairway into a tree. Hit another tree then got a miracle putt 🤪

Got really cold once the sun went down.

https://bnc.lt/yzOb/xQjl1UongT
Lihu M shot 75 at San Dimas Canyon Golf Course (San Dimas Canyon)

16 holes, we hit some really slow players.

$hit happens I guess, other than my double was feeling pretty good about my round then a double. The triple was me recovering a bit from twisting my ankle a tiny bit on that stupid 45 degree slope where my ball rolled into a clump of grass...after landing the fairway. 🙈
 
Going to post a few more...I’m sooo lucky 😂

Shot traps at my shooting range...my son hit 24 out of 25 basically single barrel. Hand loaded my Mossberg 930 one shot at a time.

I hit only 12 that way, but could have hit at least 24 if I had that second shot 😜🤣1A04663F-E902-480D-ACCD-0AC24603715F.thumb.jpeg.e37afecd807781778058856885c6b4ef.jpeg59C8D0B1-DC54-4DCD-81FA-759468EBADF0.thumb.jpeg.99a70f645208cd89603e1467d89b979d.jpeg5B2ABEB6-6980-4FB0-B1E4-8C86D2C9814D.thumb.jpeg.90d36c7a419e875f78e62219ab28f668.jpeg

At the range yesterday, I suggested they combine Trap shooting with the golf range.  Not sure the owner would like that though. 😜

I suggested the same thing at the golf course, and I got 👀 from them like I was to be put on a “list”. 🙈

When asking if I could hit golf balls at the shooting range whereupon they sent us to the trap shooting “corner”. So, that’s where we were today, but it turns out my son and I had a blast in those nether regions of the shooting range. 106 clays were cast with my son hitting almost half of them. 😁

We might go to the Sporting Clay range across the canyon where it’s said we can hit golf balls then shoot them mid air  😊

@boogielicious if this turns out to be more fun, we’ll have co-inventorship of whatever this “sport” ends up being called 😂

Just got fitted for a club at Golf Galaxy, and the “fitter” gave me his best shot. Tried 6 clubs and spent more than an hour with me. My spin rate on every club he chose for me was mostly closer to 6000rpm some with as much as 1600 side spin. For a laugh, I decided to keep quite and go with his fitting and walked out the store with a shiny new club. Here are the Mevo results with cold range balls... my swing speed is a little lower with Mevo than my buddies XL...I’m typically 102 on XL and TrackMan, but trivial differences...

For some reason my 55 yard peak height one was not in this group, but this is the second day with similar results.

I have a 90 day replacement policy, so not really a big deal, but you really need to talk to the fitters at these big stores more. Don’t go in there and follow them blindly. He also stated I have an 84mph swing, and I promise, I didn’t laugh. Just got my wallet out and paid for the club 😊

The shaft is really nice though... the new Project X 5.5 regular.

I think most people don’t expect a middle aged man to have a swing speed over 90 😂.

Going to take some video this morning to see if I can catch possible flipping? My irons and hybrid don’t flip, but it’s totally possible?

Not flipping, but I was coming up about 8degrees. Changed that and stood higher. With the same 1.34-ish SM was consistently getting my 224 carry with 2800rpm 100mph swing with Mevo. The balls were clearing the 240 flag, but I’m at 700 feet elevation and slightly more humid air.

Will check TrackMan numbers next week, Mevo is probably still low by a couple percent...

So, in the end the driver is pretty decent. Didn’t really have to swing that hard and the balls went really straight.

Guess the GG fitter knew his stuff after all 😁

131.6 ball speed with 99.6 clubhead speed? Smash of 1.32?

That's not very good. No wonder you're not hitting it very far - you're probably glancing across the ball like crazy.

Yes...if I had a 100 mph SS....I'd expect around 240 carry and ball speed around 144-145 on well struck shots...especially if it was a properly fitted driver.

    • Never have, and never will pull any of this stuff on anyone I play against If I can't win, or lose, with my clubs, I have no business playing. I have had some guys say things to me, and it really helps motivate me, but I really think very poorly of guys that try that garbage. I'm much more into sportsmanship than gamesmanship. I really think it has no place in the game.
    • Honestly, I am not worried about it.  I am not scarred of COVID.  I respect everyone's opinion. I work in hospitals from the smallest to the largest one's in the country.  I deal with infectious control to EVS.  From NYC to California during this pandemic.  I know how they feel about it from an internal point of view.   I was more concerned about my safety when I crossed the border in the 1990's to work in Tijuana then going into any hospital in this country today.  I have and still go into the most dangerous parts of any city in this country and have done so since the 1990's as well as foreign countries.  Nothing catches your attention faster then staring at an M60 Machine Gun pointed directly at the van you are in. COVID is a virus, it does not scare me.  I understand other people's fear of it and respect that.  There are a lot more deadly situations I can come into contact with that a mask and washing my hands frequently will not help. You seam to be a really nice guy.  Hopefully when this calms down and it will we can meet and play golf together.  I would really enjoy that.
    • This shaft seems pretty nice.  I took a flyer on it and got the SF505 (I swing 100-105MPH).  It came in last night and I took it to the range this morning.  I saw on a couple sites people mentioning there was a learning curve and it was true.  I tried using my same swing I put on my Hzrdus green and the ball just took off to the right.   10-20 swings later I was able to figure it out and was amazed at the results.  I realized I needed to just swing smoother and slower and it worked perfectly.  Feels so weird swinging this slow and the ball going farther.  I was on the range so no comparison other that was was visible to the naked eye.  The ball had so much more pop and was flying maybe 10 yards farther.  The consistency was the craziest part as they were ropes directly where I aimed.  Taking it on the course tomorrow so curious to see how accurate on the course it is as well as if I'm hitting from new areas because of the added length.
    • I made it up. But let's see… For me to contract COVID-19 by touching the handle of a gas pump twice: The handle would have had to have been touched by an infected person within the past few hours. There were 32 gas pumps and I was the only car at the station, at about 8:45am. That person would have basically had to slobber on the handle to get anywhere near enough viral load onto the handle. I'm unaware of a handle-of-gas-pump-licking fetish, but maybe it exists. I would have had to get virtually all of that viral load on my hand in a few seconds. I would have then had a HUGE failure of my sanitizer to do ANYTHING to remove the virus from my hands. I would have then had to lick my hand or something to get all of the virus that remained. 0.0001% was probably high. If you wanted to try to figure out the actual number, you'd have to start here: what % of the population currently has COVID-19 and is unaware and out and about? It's not like that number is even 5%.
