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.

    • Because everyone gets bored of blue skies now and again! Crazy winds and serious mood-lighting! First hole has the signature lighthouse behind the green and a great linksy fairway, second is a 114 yard par three that played about 140 yesterday.  
    • A good afternoon of birthday practice yesterday. Did a lot of short game work and went out to the course way after the last tee time to put them in practice in 'real' situations. Finally I did a nice putting drill to gauge areas to focus on - this will be a bit of a regular thing that I go back to now and again to judge progress. A few photos from on-course work: Downwind - 15mph and dispersion from shots at 125 yards, 115, 100 and 75. Nearly pulled the wedge from 75 into a bunker, which would have been horrendous, so that's a bit worse than it looks. Delighted with the rest and all on the middle tier of a three tier green. After about 10 minutes of practising, from 50 yards using a variety of clubs (furthest to nearest) - putter, wedge, hybrid chip. Had to come up a big tier, so pretty pleased with this. Hybrid chip was the right play in that it took the tier out of play, but my default would have always been wedge. Just nice to add another shot to my game - although it will need more practice. Putting: Just need to make more inside 10 feet. Great not to have any 3 putts though! Hole Ft Break Score 1 Score 2 Score 3 Score 4 Score 5 1.         3ft Straight 1         2.         6ft R/L uphill 1         3.         9ft L/R downhill 2         4.         12ft R/L downhill 2         5.         15ft L/R 2         6.         4ft slight break downhill 1         7.         8ft R/L 2         8.         12ft L/R 2         9.         16ft L/R downhill 2         10.     20ft L/R uphill 2         11.     5ft slight break 2         12.     10ft L/R 2         13.     15ft R/L 2         14.     20ft Straightish 1         15.     25ft Double Break 2         16.     6ft R/L downhill 2         17.     33ft Slight uphill 2         18.     45ft Slight downhill 2         Total 32         Strokes Gained -2.81        
    • 26/2/17 - more slow takeaway work. Heading to the range later and will spend time really working on transitioning this work to full swing. I think the feel needs to be that my left arm is glued to my stomach, but will check with video later.
    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination.
