Hi all!
Just getting back into the swing after 3 years and two broken arms later. I just swung a club for the first time about four weeks ago and have been hitting the range at least 3+ times a week since, God I love this game! I broke my arms just when I was starting to play regularly (not well but better than I'am now ), so I'm basically starting from scratch. To be perfectly honest I think that it's better this way because I don't remember any bad habits I had lol. 

A bit more about me is I work in IT, I'm a credentialed pistol instructor getting back into teaching again and I sit on staff for a local online AR15 shooting community. I enjoy shooting, hunting and RC Aircraft as well as golf. I'm marred with no kids and 2 pups. Looking to move out of Commierado and into the open spaces of MT within hopefully a year. 

Glad to be here and look forward to the information, community and its passion!

Welcome!

But please reconsider bailing on Colorado - we need every patriotic conservative we can get in order to hold off the Californication ( or Boulderization ) of this great state.

Besides, along the Front Range and in the lower altitudes of the West Slope one can golf 12 months of the year. Not so in Big Sky Country.

I can appreciate the need for more conservatives in Komierado but after 30+ years (native born) here and after enduring the wave of worthless people moving in, hiking up rent, property values and flooding the Job market I'm simply done here. I grew up in wasteminster and now live in Saudi Aurora and work in Lakewood, I can't stand the worthless, self entitled, dirty and lazy people that have moved into the state, it's just not home anymore  

The flood of people won't stop till a more desirable state legalizes weed and then the housing and job bubble that has present itself will pop. I'm sure that won't happen for about 5-10 years and frankly I'm not willing to wait. I'm done with the kind of people here  and more so I'm effectively priced out of living here any longer. 

Besides winters in MT gives me a reason to buy a sim 

 

BTW if you ever want to play a round at Stoney Creek just shoot me a pm!

    • Our school district announced that they are going back to masks. It will be required for anyone under the age of 11, and then strongly recommended for anyone not vaccinated and recommended for anyone vaccinated. My wife (vaccinated) will likely wear one. My son will have to wear one. Honestly, I’m a little relieved. I think it’s the right choice, given the circumstances. There are probably better ways to do it, but they would involve mandating the vaccine for students and staff. I’m betting that’s coming before the start of 2022, but this is good enough in the interim. 
    • Working with my instructor on some simple grip and setup issues. I actually shortened my driver shaft and regripped with the same grip(gotta love pure grips) after testing some things out. I then added a bit of throw in the DS as mentioned in the last post to get some nice high ball flights with lots of carry and no more bottom half strikes. I am really liking the extension post impact, might need to work on the upper center getting a bit more forward but good progress for now. I don't need as much of a Bubba move as @saevel25 pointed out that I had at SV to counter an over rotating clubface. This will be counted as my yearly swing thread post with video. 😉  
    • This drill will help more for that. Try and keep the right elbow from bending more than 90 degrees too.
    • The numbers are ticking up for daily vaxxing, from what I read.  So that’s some good news.   My wife and I can’t wait for the under 12 to be approved.   It drives us crazy that non-vaxxed adults are doing whatever they want with their kids while we mostly keep ours home and limit contact with people until it’s safer. My wife said there was a long line at Walgreens yesterday for people getting the vaccine.   Fingers crossed.   
    • Thanks! I’ll try to drill out I like the idea of feeling pressure on your thumb. I’ve read the article multiple times. I was doing the armpit drill in attempt to stop getting my right arm behind my shirt seam.
