  1. 1. What's your opinion of the slow-mo video analysis announcers will do during coverage of PGA Tour events?

    • It's horrible.

It's pretty bad, yea, but at least it's not as bad as it was five years ago. It's still bad, but these guys are at least aware of some better information nowadays, and occasionally it shines through. They still say odd things like "resisting the lower body," or "full release," but… I dunno, it's not as cringe inducing as it used to be. Maybe I'm just inured to it these days.

I voted for the laughs. Kostis today proved he doesn't understand simple angles.

I noticed this too!

I voted horrible today but 3+ years ago before I was a member of TST I'd have voted "I learn a lot".  I think we take for granted how poor the information about the golf swing is in the non TST world.

It's great to watch the video to see the back swing and downswing positions in slow motion, but most of the time the analysis is pretty bad!

For laughs, meh..

They reveal the golf's most profound secrets on TV all the time ".. and this ladies and gents, is why, this 5 ft 9 inch man weighing 150 lbs. hits it well over 300 yards.."

I've learned a lot from the high-speed replays. For instance, I realized what ball first, then turf meant when watching Tiger hit an iron on high-speed - watching the bottom of the grooves dig and stress the shaft engravedl in my head to really hit down at the ball (obviously weight forward at impact). Forever fixed my iron swing and knew what actual compression was when the ball would just "spring" off the club face.

I wonder who the 9 people who voted that they learned a lot are.

I voted for laughs because I think it's funny when someone that has been involved in some capacity with golf for at least 10 years says that is totally wrong and I arrogantly know it is while only being involved with golf for 3 years (because of TST. :-D ).

Haha, "greater than 90 degrees".

He needs to take a look at a protractor, if he was increasing the angle he would be casting the club.

I noticed in another swing analysis, Kostis said the opposite of what he meant. I think he meant more control vs less control when commenting on one of McIlroy's swings. This and the angle decreases rather than increases in the other swing vid - I hope they're just mental faux pas. Like when you once in a while say left when you meant right.

How on Earth do they keep that video on their site? *boggle*

I'm sure you're right - it was just a brain fart. But, that was prerecorded, so I'm not sure why they wouldn't go back and fix it. Unless he actually doesn't understand angles.

    • Thanks! You don't think hitting driver on the range is a good idea and just practice practice practice? Would you care to tell me your practice plan when you started doing the 65-25-10? With higher lofted clubs, do you mean 7+ irons? Cheers!  I really do want to get my driver into my game. Is it smart to start with hybrid from tee instead of lets say iron 4? As the lower clubs I'm having a lot of trouble with at the moment. Or should I just stick to iron clubs and learn them all? I know the end goal is to be able to play all clubs, I just need to know in which order I should do it now when I am having trouble with both. 🙂    
    • Take this advice @Ian the anxious golfer. Talk too loudly or too certainly about anything and the Golf Gods will smite you.  
    • Greetings, What information are you looking for? Here's a Big LB 3 wood with some specifications listed: BUY GOLF CLUBS ONLINE, USED AND NEW HONMA BIG-LB 3 WOOD GRAPHITE PRECISION REGULAR FLEX #D2011 - HONMA Not sure if that's the same 3 wood as you have. There are quite a few Big LB woods and drivers out there.    As @Vinsk mentioned ebay has lots of irons so do the other trader sites. The 767's are not as commonly traded as the 747's and some other Honmas. Post a picture of the irons that you have and the shaft that's in them. I'm often out there trading clubs and stuff. I can add your 4 iron to my list of stuff I'm keeping my eyes open for and if I come across one I'll let you know.  As a way to expand your options would you consider a 747 4-iron with the same shaft and grip?    Anyhow, welcome to the forum.
    • Last night, I was on the range working on the clearing of the hips on the downswing as well as trying to shallow out the club a bit more to start the downswing. As far as swing thoughts went I was trying to feel my right elbow coming in towards my side and my left elbow going out towards ball slightly at start of downswing. In order to effectively hit the ball I could tell I really needed to clear my hips from that position.  This was actually a pretty consistent day as far as divots go. I don't believe I chunked any and there weren't many shots that felt "bad". However, I was having trouble hitting the ball straight. When I started trying to shallow club I began pulling a lot of shots that a light draw flight which was causing a lot of my shots to get well left of the target.    I was really I'd be able to see some shallowing of the club here considering I felt like I was over-exaggerating the elbows. Maybe I need more hip turn at the beginning of my downswing? Also, is my club face too open at the top of my swing? I couldn't for the life of me get the toe to be any more pointed down than it is in the swing above.
