This Has Helped Me Tremendously

7 posts in this topic

I wish I had this advice when I started this insane game 18 months ago. This has virtually eliminated the right side of the course. Now i can focus on approach shots from the fairway and my short game. I hope this help others that are struggling. [VIDEO]http://youtu.be/DJIKysvM4Qk[/VIDEO]

Good video. It emphasizes a steady head and a good rotation. Thanks for sharing.

Along the same lines (no pun intended).
This is really a great exercise to stretch the necessary muscles.
I bought a 10’ wood curtain rod at Home Depot and cut it down to 8’.
The simple workout in the backyard has made a great difference.

Yes sir!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been working this drill for a week. Also get a kettle bell and simulate a slow golf swing. It builds some serious strength and you will find yourself crushing your drives.

If I did that, I'd have a hole dug to China. My clubs are fit to my height and I know if I dipped my shoulder that much, I'd have major turf issues.

This deserves a bump. GREAT DRILL FOR MAINTAINING SPINE ANGLE ON BACK SWING AND FOLLOW THROUGH!

I have a tendency to lose my spine angle on the follow through. Especially later in the round when I start to get tired. When I do, my draw turns into a pull hook.

once again, FANTASTIC DRILL.  I, myself, will add a little hip slide towards the target on the downswing, so it feels like an actual golf swing. I even finish up with my weight on my left side, for right hand golfer, on the follow through.

As for the comment above. It's just an exercise to get your body in shape to stay in the right spine/shoulder angle. However, in a good  golf swing your right shoulder will be coming down towards the ground on the swing plane as you move into impact position.

That's enough talk about the swing...............never rmind.

It's just a great exercise to improve your game, period!

    • A run of the mill slice is something I can actually live with (though it'll be an annoying existence).  A push slice is probably the most off line I ever get with a shot (even more than a shank due to distance) as it starts right and goes further right.  Luckily those are so rare that when they do pop up they usually aren't in a spot where it causes me trouble.
    • The point that I was specifically responding to was, just because you're on top of another group, it still may be appropriate to allow others through.  Just because @No Mulligans hadn't experienced it, didn't mean that the concept was moot by any means... And fwiw, our relatively fast group has allowed 5-somes through....
    • These guys haven't gotten to where they are without being ultra-competitive.  I don't think the lack of money had any real effect on their desire to win.
    • The slice is just such a devastating miss for your game. It is a shot that I really have to eliminate from my game. I am an incredibly inconsistent player, to the point where I can be hitting a beautiful high fade and start to go pin hunting for several holes, having several looks at birdie in a row and then within the next several holes be almost unable to hit the ball without hitting a horrendous slice. I am so inconsistent that it is not abnormal for me to go something like par, birdie, par, birdie, par, quad, quad, quad in an eight hole stretch.
    • I recently won some pro shop credit ($100) at a semi-private course nearby.  Thing is, I need to use it before November or it expires. I don't really need any clothes or accessories so I was thinking I might put it towards a new driver.  The problem is, while I'm sure I can test it out on the range, they just have regular old range balls and I'm doubtful there's any kind of fitting process.  I also can't really play a round there with a demo club unless I'm someone's guest or I'm willing to shell out $100+ to play off-peak times (which I'm not).  There's a decent golf shop down the road from the course that offers fittings for $75/hour, with a $50 credit toward a related purchase within 30 days.  I've never had a proper fitting, so would it make sense to go to the golf shop, get fit, assume I'll probably get a custom shaft, go buy the same driver at the pro shop using my credit, and then buy the shaft from the golf store, applying the fitting credit?  When you get fit and end up with a custom shaft, is the shaft price usually totally on top of the full price of the off-the-rack driver, or is there typically a discount since you're not getting the OEM shaft? Obviously different stores do things differently, but I'm just wondering what is common practice. I'm trying not to overthink it but I also don't want to waste my pro shop credit. Any advice would be much appreciated!
