Probably college football. Oklahoma State is my first team, but my brother attended OU law school so I'm a fan of OU too. I just support the Big 12 overall but enjoy any good match.

My favorite sport, to watch, is Premier League Football.  The games are on in the morning, there are no commercials, and they take no more than two hours.  I root for Bournemouth; not to win the title but to stay up.  My favorite team, however, is the Detroit Red Wings.  I grew up in Detroit and played hockey when I was younger.

Growing up in Northeast Ohio and playing baseball in college, mine definitely has to be baseball and the Cleveland Indians. 

Although since I have moved down to the Columbus area, Ohio State football comes in at a close 2nd!

MLB, and the Cubs is my #1 favorite. #2 is the NFL, and the Packers.

The world series I want to see would be the Cubs, and Red Sox. I already saw my favorite Superbowl with the Packers, and Steelers

My Dad played in the Cubs system for a year before WW-2. Hence Iam a Cubs fan. 

As for being a Packer fan, we were visiting relatives, and they had tickets to the "Ice Bowl". "

  1. Cleveland Browns - Raised that way.  Live and die on Sundays with them...mostly die.
  2. Duke Basketball - I have a cousin who started working for Duke way back in the early 90's and started following them back then.  Moving to NC out of college has only grown my passion.
  3. Penn State Football - My alma mater.
  4. Cleveland Indians/Cavs/sports
  5. Manchester United - I started watching EPL back in the early 2000's when I was going over to the UK.  A bunch of the guys I worked with over there were big Man U fans and we would go to the pub and watch them when they were on.  It was an absolute blast and I got hooked.  I never thought I'd actually like to sit down and watch soccer (football) but the quality is so much better and really enjoyable.  It's grown my love for US soccer as well.

Little bit of a mixed bag but it is what it is...I love watching sports

North Carolina Tar Heel basketball.  Went to grad school there in the 90's.  Got to see them win the national championship live in '93 and several other Final Fours.

    • I takes time to make changes like this. You need to work not only only the shoulder turn with the club, but also your general flexibility and core strength. Yoga type stretching can help, but there are other simple exercise you can do as a warm up to help.  I do them in front of a mirror at the gym to also verify I have a centered turn. I do this one below every time I pick up a club. And be patient. Changes can take weeks to happen. Stick with it, it will change. From this thread,    After I do this, then use a club and check out my shoulder turn in the mirror. It really, really helps. Mirrors are terrific tools.
    • Theres a lot to be said for that.  As a devout Buddhist, I can tell you that just taking life as it is can be a real game changer in a person's life.
    • Welcome to The Sand Trap. New players should really try and focus on making good contact with irons. DG S300 shaft are a bit heavier than the 100g shafts the fitting recommended, but you should be able to use them. 77 mph is average for a 6 iron (if you used a 6 iron to get that speed) and as a new player, you swing speed will probably increase given your size. Your PW distance would indicate stiff is also a good choice. If you want to get better, I recommend posting a video of your swing in the Member Swings section. We can help point you in the right direction for improvement.  
    • Has this guy ever looked at Hogan's swing? 😂 Agree with @iacas, if anything Hogan is doing the opposite. IMO Hogan had more of what's called a lagging club head takeaway, meaning the club head "lagged" behind the hands on the takeaway. I just don't think you can get in these positions with twisting or rolling the forearms while adding extension (cup) to the lead wrist. I agree he maintained or maybe added a little extension in the lead wrist early takeaway, almost "pushed" the grip end back with the heel pad of the left hand. Right hand above left, well away from his right thigh. If you twisted you can't create that amount of width. Look at how the right elbow is well away from his rib cage. Hands and shaft almost inline at 1.5, again don't think that can get there by rolling the forearms early. Right hand on top of left here. I have some thoughts on how this allowed him to get to the top with such an externally rotated right elbow, might do a video on that soon.
    • Hey guys and girls. Have been playing for three months, currently on a 28 handicap, 6ft, 210lbs shooting anything between 93-105. Trying to play twice a week but at least once. I had a club fitting and iron swing speed of 77 mph I can’t remember the numbers on small box. The club pro recommended stiff clubs at least 100g in weight so went with a set of Rbladez with dg S300 shafts in them.  Hitting my PW 145 yards Question 1: Are these clubs and shafts helping or detrimental to a new players’ game? Question 2: Would I benefit more from a set of taylormade burners, Cleveland ta7 or ping G5’s (GI clubs) etc with stock stiff shafts? Thanks
