    • 716 or 718 Titleist AP2 vs Mizuno MP58, will the Titleists be significantly more forgiving?
    • I've been Playing Golf for: about 5 years
      My current handicap index or average score is: handicap 15, trending downwards lately
      My typical ball flight is: straight and very high
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: This has been changing somewhat, typically it's a hook, but lately misses have rather been slices or even the occasional open face hit  Additional background: I've only taken very few lessons (including some on evolvr a few years ago around key 1), but try to figure out how to work on my swing based on what I read online (mainly here). I've been progressing quite steadily on my own, but last year over the entire season I only managed to drop my handicap by ~2 points. This year, I aim to do better and want to work on improving my swing. From looking at my own swing on video, there are two things that strike me: 1) Overswinging: my left arm breaks down at the top of the backswing, even when I try to 'feel' a shorter backswing
      2) Early release: I release the golfclub way to early on the downswing. I still get a decent contact, and am not lacking for distance (7 iron goes 145-150 meter) but my ballflight is way too high and unplayable in windy circumstances Despite trying to work on these, I just can't seem to get these right. Maybe I need to practice more/better, or maybe I'm doing things in my swing to which the natural reaction is the errors I see. Especially for the early release, I can keep the lag in practice swings, but as soon as there is a ball I go back to the early release. Would love to get some insight from everyone on here on what to work on (and ideally how). In the below videos, I've included a practice swing and a real one right after that. Thanks in advance everyone for your help! Videos:     
    • We have a nesting pair of Red-Tailed hawks at my course. They have a big nest to the right of the 15th fairway. When they have eggs or chicks you don't want to slice it under their tree because they will fly down and thump you on the head. It's never happened to me but one of them knocked my dad's straw hat off before. Scared the living shit out of him!
    • Changing is not really Tortorella's forte. Still can't believe the Blackhawks traded him for Saad and a backup goalie.
    • It goes to who do you give the benefit of the doubt to?

      Tiger, or Stevie? And why?
