Ok, we could go on forever,but I am satisfied with my point of view as you are with yours.

This has been interesting, to say the least. I'm curious. You're new to the site. Can you share with us your name, credentials, experience, and handicap? Thanks.

Or just a face on video of his pitching method.

Why are we wasting our time with this guy?  He clearly does not know what he is talking about and will never be convinced.  He makes lame inferences and declares victory.  He cannot "see" that actual technique and feel are two different things. It reminds me of the scene in The Poseidon Adventure when the survivors split up. @freedrop will go to the bow with the other doomed passengers because some guy in a uniform said so instead of using his own eyes to see that the waters surface is up and not down.  Arguing with him is not worth the electrons.

iacas.......we're both satisfied..aren't we?

I don't presume to know how you feel about anything.

I'm satisfied in my opinion of your knowledge, and in the success I've had teaching this method to others, and in how pros actually hit the shots discussed.

If it can be repeated ,then it's golf sound.

@freedrop , I'd still like to hear a little about your background and golf game, just to help put your posts into perspective. Thanks.

Not David, but yes you could. As a golfer we would expect you to be truthful. 99% of us have let it be known how we golf, what our stats are, how some of us have lousy swings, and that we trust the TST members to be honest in their opinion of what they post, by not offering any info. re: yourself, I for one tend to think your a wanna be golf analyst and just spewing stuff you've found on other sites, or the GC. Am I wrong..?

That's the first truth you have written so far, your posts have no value.

What I am writing I believe and have experienced, it is backed up by video instruction by tour pros which yes I have followed and studied.From the reception I am getting I feel no need to provide anything else.

And several people have shown you very clearly that what they say they do is not what they actually do.

You were right about the one thing: you've contributed nothing of actual value (except the marginal value of bumping this thread so others can read and form their own opinions and perhaps learn a thing or two and lower their scores).

We have a student coming to us from eight hours away - a student who can afford to go to anyone - to learn more about the short game. Again, I'm satisfied that we're doing our job of making golfers better.

You were asked a direct question, @freedrop , and we value honesty and integrity here, but you cannot or will not answer. That says a lot.

Is 27.1 your true HC..? If it is, I would be very careful about offering advice to others re: their swings, ect. I would however be more than happy to have Erik, Mike, or any of the low handicappers offer advice, and would think what they say has more merit than someone who cant break 95.

I'd just like some insight into the depth of that experience. I think I've been very forthright with you. Why the hesitancy to return the courtesy?

I think a moderator added that. It was 17 for awhile IIRC. It was "??" before that.

This site asks that you add your proper handicap to your profile :

Please do. Golf is a game of integrity and honesty, and oftentimes advice is customized for the person who is asking the question or participating in the conversation. If you do not have an official handicap index, approximate one. The only acceptable answers for your handicap index are a valid number or "Pro." Members caught lying about their handicap index will be viewed as dishonest scoundrels and will be dealt with in an appropriate manner.

That @freedrop hasn't is yet another indication of his attitude towards his fellow golfers and the requests made of users of this site.

Edit: None of this was even remotely on topic, so it's been moved here.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
