Golf Channel - Indoor golf cave cribs - make this!

9 posts in this topic

Having seen Weir's setup, how awesome would a 1/2 hour segment of all the different indoor setups of pros and amateurs alike be? For example, would be interested in hearing how Weir's was built - noting the concrete walls, what's behind the curtain, radar, etc... Kinda looks like it could double as a panic room :-)

It wouldn't be the worst show on Golf Channel.


Then again, I don't know how many pros have indoor golf caves. I think a lot just live on a golf course and drive their cart to the range. So… a show for Steve Stricker and Mike Weir only? I'll pass. :)

I disagree ... Anything with Brandel Chamblee IMO is the worst show on the golf channel ...

But to the OP - If I had enough money to spend I'd buy a lot of land and build a few practice holes.

I'd watch the show, but I'm a golf geek ...

Don't forget about Dave Pelz' backyard chipping and putting course. Tiger has a few holes in his back yard too.

As Mike's from the great white north, I think this type of thing is much more prevalent in colder climates.       Not to hijack the thread, but speaking of Weir, did anybody see the comments Faldo made a few weeks ago about how S&T; totally wrecked his swing.    I've heard opponents before, but never anyone so outspoken as Faldo against S&T; .... almost seemed like he had a grudge.      Anyways, back to the regularly scheduled programming ...

So you agree. I never said anything about who would host it. I said it wouldn't be the worst show on the channel.

This is a good example of what I mean. Forget Golf Channel. Any decent sized media outlet can do this. There's gotta be more interesting setups like this.

What are those two white squares to the right of the Trackman?

    • For those who don't show clubs in your sig line. I currently carry: 1-3-5 "woods" 2-SW (mid 90's loft angles, unlike stronger modern lofts) Putter I probably don't need the 5W, and I'd like to try a hybrid or two. Some day...  
    • Ok thanks. I feel like I am stuck right between reg and stiff. Hard to tell though as the last time I hit stiff flex in my irons my ball striking wasn't as good or as consistent. I play stiff flex in my driver, 3 wood and hybrids but that's mainly for consistency. I've always had a high ball flight since I started playing golf but lately it's become ridiculously high. Do you guys think moving over to stiff flex would help with lowering the ball flight.

      http://www.gamegolf.com/player/roamin/round/1613273 Beautiful (and hot!) Florida sunshine, four rounds of golf, and $20 buck on skins. Great weekend! Highlights were, first and foremost, the 39 on the front nine this morning (a personal best), and the amazing par, birdie, par finish to the day.
    • Four rounds this weekend, two on Saturday and two on Monday. Shot 89, 90, 84, 91. Today was skins day and luckily, my highlight round came this morning. The front nine was just awesome, shot 39 with six pars and three bogeys. Then got stupid on the 10th after the first bad drive of the day and hit a tree, twice (well, different trees ), and made triple. Three more pars and nothing worse than a single after that, to finish with an 84. Fifty cent skins, plus extra skins for birdies, and low score on front, back, and overall for each round. I was up by 20 skins on the 18th in the second round when we went double or nothing.   I hit my longest drive of the day, at 274 yards, with a perfect angle left to the par 5 green. Then hit a perfect 3W and ended up 6 feet off the front-left edge of the green. Thinned the pitch-shot a little and it rolled about ~15 feet passed the hole...two-putt for par. My buddy had hit a tree with his 3W (bad angle off the tee), and finished with a double. $20 bucks! Cha-ching! What a great weekend! 
    • Austin had a great swing but other than the "macro" moves I don't see many similarities to DJ. - Austin had a slightly weak or neutral grip, DJ uses a strong one
      - Austin raised his left heel on the backswing 
      - DJ has a much more flexed lead wrist on the backswing and downswing
      - Austin goes into right pelvic tilt and with more axis tilt on the downswing where DJ maintains left pelvic tilt longer
      - DJ is more rotational while Austin had more "leg drive".
