Cool!!  How many more levels of competition are there?

What is the reward (for doing well) for each level?

Worked on this recently. My head was going forward and my hips were going backward in the backswing, so I would reverse those in the downswing. Got better pretty quickly with alternating something on the front of my head or on the right hip.

I doubt @iacas will enjoy it when she starts beating him. ;-)

Being that good alone is quite the accomplishment in and of itself, plus a lifelong passion but practically thinking - side benefit - college scholarship. That helps a lot with tuition if daughter is willing to play while studying.

You're crazy then. May be one of the best days of my life.

Crazy... yes. ;-)

I think every parent wants to see their succeed in everything they do. I hope your realize my comment was tongue in cheek. Given her teacher, I'm sure she will go far.

Yeah. I tried to get my daughter interested given the number of unused girls golf scholarships. It didn't happen so hopefully her academics will cover her.

I got tired of my kid showing me up in my own My Swing thread, so I'm putting her swings here from now on.

That is all.


Aspirations for LPGA?

She has a great swing, but then again she has easy access to the best instruction on the planet. :beer:

Tough crowd. :-D Need to work on what Erik calls my "right hand Monkey Grip."

Lol at "Erik." Gets me everytime when my son says "Coach Drew" at soccer practice.

I am doing okay at not getting too far forward in the backswing now (I can still do a little more) but next I need to get the hips forward a bit more and create and keep a little more wrist angle. But here is a swing sequence.

Looking a bit Lexi like at A7. Some very nice work and changes over time there!

    • I'm not really sure why you quoted me there and then wrote this. None of this has anything to do with anything I wrote in this thread. The next time I write the word "tragic" here will be the first.
    • And you or a loved one could get killed by someone running a red light, making sudden lane changes at a high rate of speed, texting, falling asleep at the wheel or a myriad of other distractions.  If your loved one died due to these would it not be as tragic, or is it only if alcohol is somehow involved, then it makes it worse?   +1 - Once emotions get in anything bad laws are sure to follow.   Auto crashes may be the biggest threat to children, but that wouldn’t be from drunk drivers killing them.  Lots of innocent people get killed in auto crashes every year, not all are killed by drunk drivers.  I’ll pose a question to all who said yes to the post, if all drunk driving fatalities are unavoidable if the person who is drunk didn’t drive, why are there any other traffic fatalities? Obviously if you haven’t been drinking you should never get in an accident?   I don’t agree that it will save that many lives.  I believe there are something like 6,000 traffic fatalities during sunrise and sunset, when visibility is poor.  Why don’t we ban driving during these times? You’re 61% number is incorrect.  And I posted this on another thread a couple of years ago and @iacas mentioned it already, but I’ll go ever further then he did, not only are more than 50% of all alcohol-related fatalities a single car crash, killing the driver and occupants with them, but not all alcohol-related fatalities mean that the person driving was impaired.  An alcohol-related fatality is if anyone in the car has alcohol in their system.  So a Designated Driver could be in a traffic fatality with 3 drunk passengers and this is 4 people involved in an alcohol-related fatality. Or you could have a beer and some dope runs the red light hitting you and causing a fatality, but you being a driver and having alcohol in your system are probably going to be the one who goes to jail. I’m glad you’ll accept the inconvenience, I’m not.Plus you’re not going to phase out all older cars in 15 years.   Sorry for your loss, but same question as before, would you feel any different if it was a red light runner that caused the same pain?  Not to be callous, just what is the difference. As stated before, more than 50% of the 10,000 are the drivers of the vehicles.   Et tu Brute.... + A Bunch...... + A bunch More... No, my vote would not change in the least.   Most people that cause alcohol-related fatalities are people with BAC around 0.15, almost twice the legal limit.  With as many Bars, wineries, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and how prevalent alcohol is, it’s amazing how safe it is on the roads or is it really becasue it’s not as much of a threat as the media and the government make it out to be.   I think @Pretzel said it great, emotions = bad laws.  
    • A good source to look is often on eBay. While there may not be manufacture specifics, there usually is some descriptive information. I did a brief search on two items that listed the shaft flex in terms which were most likely used back when the clubs were made. One item indicated the shafts were medium/regular and another were described as regular. Your dealing with "Vintage" items which were popular long before the internet.
    • Day 22 Got to take full swings today. First time since injuring my tailbone. It felt pretty good. it will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning.  Funny, putting a ball on a tee, or plucking it out of the hole still hurts a lot.
