Hello from Massachusetts.

10 posts in this topic

So I posted in one of the sub-forums and figured I should at least be polite and check in. Played for a season and a half or so about 6 years ago, enjoyed it, but, well, life. Marriage, house, etc. Shortage of time and funds... the normal story. Boss took a bunch of us out for a company scramble at one of the local, beautiful courses, played well, got hooked again. So I played every weekend for the past couple of months, played like crap (broke 100 once with a nice 98!) but always left with a smile. Well, that's about it. I'll see you fellas around.

Welcome fellow m*******! Unfortunately I think we are running low on outdoor golf time, been to any of the indoor places?

If I may butt in, have you been to any of them? There's a decent one on Speen st in Natick, as well as a few soccer domes in Norfolk and Marlborough that have golf mats set up. Those are all west of you guys though, I'm guessing.

I've got indoor sims in New Bedford and Lakeville, and a heated range in Seekonk, but that's about it from what I know in this part of MA.

Actually I live in Western MA. All of those are east of me. No indoor places near where I am. Sorry.

Ha! Sorry, I went for the percentage play.

sometimes a quick fix can be had on sunny warm day in Dec. down on the cape. Quashnet valley 20-25 minutes from the bridge. is always open along with a few others- provided there is no snow.

I haven't been to the one in Natick, Only the one in Middleton.  Luckily there is also a couple heated ranges as well pretty close to me.

The simulators are fun but can be a bit inaccurate at times.  I played Agusta the other day on one and had a 235 yard 7 iron....i WISH

Its nice to keep swinging during the colder weather.

    • That looks nifty, but… it's only really going to be an option for awhile in some high-end places, I'm wagering. If it's a full range, you can of course see your ball flight. So the tracer itself is probably not that important, right? The points and games are another thing, kinda TopGolf-like.
    • That looks awesome! I hope that sooner or later all driving ranges will have that technology built into them.  Was it more expensive than a regular bucket of balls?
    • I didn't take it that way. I know the HGG quote, and that it's a way of saying "goodbye." That's not exactly "cool" though either: Mike tells you he's mad at you, I demonstrate that your impact conditions and backswing are worse, and you say "okay, goodbye." But yeah, I took it this way: That fits quite well since you keep talking about how you have to know and understand the whole system just to implement a piece, and about how your brain works that way, and so on. How I took the fish quote is pretty clear from the response, is it not? All that said, I apologize. I took it the wrong way. I reacted more strongly than I would have had I taken it the HGG way, and I'm sorry for that. Disagreement isn't intolerable at all. But you're not really disagreeing with anything, either… you're choosing to ignore things, and you seem to think that you're not being helped. You're wasting our time. Disagreement? At least there's discourse there. Ignoring? That's just a (small) slap in the face… Mike and I - and others - have given you a boatload of free advice. I can't speak for others, but I don't expect you to pay for anything, ever. When all else fails, play the victim card again? Anyone who has met @mvmac will tell you he's not quick to anger. So if you pissed him off, well, then more than likely you did something, and are not just some passive victim. P.S. You're likely getting better because you're hitting balls. You're learning how to make the flaws in your swing at least time themselves up right. You're learning to time your flip just right so that you can pick the ball off the ground without fatting or thinning it. You're learning how to sway your hips and drop your head back/early extend on the downswing so you can hit out a little bit despite being super steep (and you need a really closed stance to help you with that). You're getting better at making a flawed swing because you're repeating it often. You're lowering the ceiling on how good you can get each time you visit the range and don't practice properly, or practice the proper things. Your swing may actually be worse now than a week or two ago. We tried to help you - free, and by giving you much of our most valuable asset (our time) - and you instead pissed off one of the calmest people around and ignored the advice of many others, including me, who knows what I'm talking about. Then you chose to play the victim after a vague reference to fish, and took the easy out of saying "oh, you just don't like people who disagree." No, I don't like people who waste my time, but the solution on my end is very easy: I simply choose to stop wasting my time on them. I don't care if you disagree. I prefer it, really, so long as you're a worthy adversary. You? You don't stack up. We can't talk about some intricate part of the golf swing. Nor should you at this point, or possibly ever, because you're a golfer, not a golf instructor. That's all fine. But I can choose to stop giving you free advice, and spending my time doing it.  So if your goal is to have me ignore you from here on out, you've succeeded! :-) I'll spend my time helping those who appreciate it.
    • Did anyone make it to this?  I had some things come up and couldn't make it. Also, we should get a spring round get together going...
    • You misunderstand. Yes, of course he is one of the ATGs on the current list. What I am saying is that can change, not that it will, but it can. Like I said it is an ever expanding/changing list.
