I want turbulators to help me drive it long with the Ping g30 driver.

I predict the Red (West Coast) team will win the 2015 Newport Cup by a score of 28 to 26. The MVP will be @Club Rat with 13 points won.

big stroke is dead on with Big RED, West Coast winning, but don't believe a word he says on MVP .......

But he needs a new driver and definitely could use a new Ping G30.

Then maybe he'll hit it in the same zip code when we play.

Red team wins 1,000 points to zero. @mvmac is MVP because of his pod system and inspiring pre-round speeches.

    • Meanwhile on the PGA Tour, Scheffler is five ahead through 15 with play to resume on Monday. If he wins, it would be his fourth in five starts. Has two players ever dominated like that simultaneously?  
    • Day 109- Made some full swings today. Hopefully that means I’m close to 100%, although a particularly painful sneeze has me keeping expectations more realistic. 
    • Well done! And i would have 100% believed a 200+ 6 iron off the tee. No need to give away your secrets!
    • Day 286: mirror work - checking posture and grip and then working on hip movement. 
    • Ok.  So I have this problem:    If I place the ball in the middle of my stance (when hitting my irons, like you're supposed to), I just can't seem to make good contact.  I'm chunking it; it seems like I'm hitting way behind the ball, and my clubhead is not yet at the bottom of the swing trajectory (ie where it's supposed to be when contact is made).     I'm not sure why this is.  I think it may be because I'm not bending enough at the waist, leaning forward.  I may be standing up too straight.  If I place the ball forward in my stance (by as much as 3-4 ball lengths, especially with my long iron), I get nearly perfect contact . . . but with a hook/pull tendency.
