Hi guys, second post on here. Simple newb question on setting up a practice area at home. I read through a few posts in the archives, so that helped, but have a few specific questions. My yard? umm, small... I was thinking of getting a net like in the link to practice my swinging.. Are those worthwhile when you can't get out on the course? Or should I just getting a mat to practice putting? Or any other nets I should be looking at? Thanks http://www.golfgalaxy.com/sklz-practice-net/ss13sklzprctnet7/product

For the price that seems like a decent piece of equipment.

I made my own using netting I purchased from at a war surplus outlet, and 3/4" electric conduit for the frame work. I used shower curtain hangers to attach the netting to the frame. Cost me about $80, but has lasted for over a decade. I was really over sized it both wide, and high. I hung a towel for the ball to hit, to avoid damaging the netting.

The only problem I see with using a net for longer swings, is the it does not allow the golfer to see the actual ball flight. It's quite possible the golfer practicing with a net, might feel they are hitting good shots. However, once on the course, that good swing, and ball contact might actually be a slice, or hook.

Easily fixed if your neighbors are very understanding........or have good insurance

    • I think @rehmwa was referring to a @chile quote, not me. Anyway yea, I'm also interested to see what the Aussie crowds do with this 😄. And piggy backing on what others have said, coupled with his history and the act itself, it really is about all the stupid ways he's decided to cover this up in the aftermath. And then yesterday, he decides to turn himself into this victim/hero/star-of-his-own-revenge-tragedy by saying that what Cam Smith said about it was "personal." Really? I mean, I guess he's in Australia at the moment so he can contact Mel Gibson and ask him optimal revenge strategies to use this week. Definitely a solid resource. Maybe Braveheart revenge will be more effective, I dunno. But as an American I guess I can do some mental gymnastics and make this personal along with him. Let's teach them internationals some manners, Patrick!!! 
    • No way. It is the best needling tool the Internationals have at the moment to unsettle the Americans. They gotta milk it atleast through the PC. I can't wait to see what the crowds bring and how thick Reed's skin is. 
    • Any PDFs or Excel docs that are golf specific workout plans? I have seen some like the Joey D workout system but you usually have to pay to access them.
    • I've been very happy with the Srixon Q Star 'Tour' (not to be confused with the Q Star); the Tour has a urethane cover and plays great in windy conditions (something we have a lot of in Texas).  I was pretty happy with the Costco Kirkland 4-piece but that's not available anymore.  I would put the Q Star Tour as having more 'heft' (some may call it feel) than the Costco ball and better feel on the green.  Costs range from $26-$29/dozen.  $29 is the not-on-sale cost; I've waited for deals on it and got it for as low as $19.99/dz (you can't beat that for a urethane cover ball). Good luck.  
    • Rant alert: Watched the Captain's assistants interview last night on GC. I get all the weeklong celebration and build up of the event and all the talk about how many texts are sent out 2 am in the morning, but these filler interviews are nauseating..😆. The Koala bear was a good touch though. They were smart enough to not attempt to bring a Kangaroo in the press room. Ha. Especially the camaraderie/team building questions are  terrible. I mean how do you get 12 independent contractor type millionaires in a room and build a brotherhood? IDK but I think it be hilarious if Fred Couples said they all sleep in bunk beds together in a 12X12 room and shower together to build that undying--no-man-left-behind love for each other.. lol. Reporters putting JT and WS on the spot about about the Reed incidence was squirm inducing but I thought they both did an admirable job not 'no commenting' yet not throwing the fella under the bus. I am sure they were all expecting it and prepared.  Can the damn matches start already?
