Hello from Canada

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I am recently new to the site ( yesterday I joined ) and just wanted to say hello! I am an avid golfer and have been going hard at golf for 2 years now. My background involves lots of hockey which has helped me alot with my golf swing. I am a 10.5 handicap. I look forward to chatting with all of you avid golfers in the near future!

cheers,

Steve

im guessing you are a Steve as well? where abouts in Norcal are ya? what courses do you play?

I am not. I do like the name Steve though :-D....My stomping grounds is a little ways north of San Francisco. I like to play some of the "North Bay" and even some of the central valley courses. I'd love to play HP or even go down to PBGL

All over, mostly north shore. Lived in North Van just of Lonsdale, lived in West Van around Dundarave, lived in Gibsons (actually worked at Gramma's Pub across the street from Molly's Reach :-D ) and lived in Robert's Creek for a few years too.

Kind of miss the proximity to the Pacific and being able to sit on the beach whenever I wanted.

Welcome Steve. I'm also a fellow Canadian (Montreal), but have lived in the Detroit Metro area since '85. I'm also new to the site and it seems like a great place. Do yourself a favor and purchase "Lowest Score Wins". I'm only halfway done, but it's a GREAT read.

Cheers,

Rick

we went down to pebble beach last year for a wedding in Monetrey and thought it was the most beautiful place on earth! there are some beautiful golf courses in that area!

did you ever play northlands? gibsons is a very nice place as well but a tad bit too small for my liking. I live in Kitsilano right now and im only a few paces from the beach. its a great place to live. I play alot of university golf course and mccleery and fraserview

    • I play steel in my 4 and 6 hybrids (dont play a 5 at the moment). The 4 is TM burner with a OEM steel shaft but the 6 is one i built on the cheap as an experiment. Its an Acer XDS, fitted with an Appollo steel shaft. Its the cheapest one they do and its spot on. You can get the Appollo Shadow lite are Acculite for decent prices through Nordica golf 
    • It's not an informed opinion but I have tried a DG s300 in a 5 wood head and found that the overall weight was very heavy. I was able to get the swingweight down to d2 but the whole club felt like I was swinging a mallet. Since the DG SL is about 20grams lighter ( lower ball flight) or AWT ( Mid Ball flight) I would opt for either of these, bearing in mind that the shaft would have to be parallel tip hosel .370 to fit the Adams Pro .370. ( I could be wrong here but hopefully someone that knows more will pitch in )
    • Hiya All I've been Playing Golf for: 10 years - with a 5 year kid break My current handicap index or average score is: 18
      My typical ball flight is: pull/pull draw
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pull draw Current swing thoughts are -Posture don't arch back and neck -Start backswing with right ass cheek -Just rotate on the way back, don't sway to the right -downswing - rotate body, rotate, rotate...ROTATE! -impact try to drive club face forward (impact bag feeling) not flip Not all at the same time, of course! Videos:      The hand signals show the ball flight on DTL. This is a 6I This is a selection of shots, I've not given you the highlights real. Shank happens once every 20-30 Push every 15-20 over draw every other shot.  
    • Probably this,   No specifically, but the overall confidence level is probably low.  
    • This I really agree with.  Really   As it happens I went for the trackman certified guy.  Thanks for the all the thoughts, At lot of them made a lot of sense. Not sure I really got an answer into the fundamental question -How do you know if the advice you are being given is just plain wrong? I, for one, don't want to waste a couple of months being shown the wrong path.  It's a difficult game and weeding out the good advice from the bad is tricky.  The best I've found is to look at how an instructor fixes a "problem"  If they talk about fixing the movements that lead up to the problem, the previous links in the chain, then they get more points.  If they just fix the problem without referring to anything else, then they lose points with me.   Thanks for the help all. Now to get to the range again!
