Happy Thanksgiving! 

Currently living in Dayton, but have family all over the state.

I get out and play about once a week. I've been playing a little less lately and mostly practice anyway, two or three times a week.

Home course is Beavercreek Golf Club.

My occupation is research engineer, and I have interests in vehicles, sports and music/djaying.

Hello from Florida! Happy Thanksgiving and welcome to TST. Since you're doing a lot of practicing you may be interested to know that you can post a video of your swing in the 'My Swing' thread and get free advice from many excellent instructors. Nice to have you here. Enjoy the day!

Thanks, I might do that. I'd love to play more but my free time is pretty limited since I have two young kids. Usually I can sneak in an hour at the range after work.

I have some videos of my swing but I don't like how it looks. Maybe some feedback will help me change the picture.

Welcome to the Gem City.

My mom actually lives in a plat about 1 mile south of Beavercreek Golf Club and I still work down that way. A friend has abused me out there a time or two, but I prefer flatter and cheaper courses. I play Kittyhawk and the hometown Miami Shores.

We also have a couple of other guys in the general area. @CarlSpackler is back here from Florida much to his chagrin. Just north of here is @Jeremie Boop. We usually get together once or twice a season.

Thanks guys. Beavercreek is a pretty good time. Definitely have lost my fair share of balls there - enough that I learned where the hot spots are for finding lots of lost balls!

I've played Kittyhawk a few times in outings. Don't remember which of the 3 9s.

@klineka I saw from your game golf profile that you played at Turnberry. My sister lives right by there. Only played it once or twice though. 

Go Bucks!

Actually, it's 3 18s at the moment. The Eagle, the Hawk and The Falcon.

It's my scruffy old muni.

Right now we are waiting on consultants to tell the City of Dayton what they need to do to stop losing so much money on golf. Unlike Beavercreek, they can't afford what they drop on it. The scuttlebutt around Kittyhawk is that the Hawk might get shut. ... It doesn't really make the most sense financially, but it would probably be the most PC decision for them to make. Community is historic and Madden is in West Dayton, either of those would be met with hostility from people that have never swung a golf club.

Yessir, It's one of the local courses owned by the City of Columbus. Not a bad track, fairly open for the most part, has a couple holes that can play pretty long depending on the wind direction. I probably get out to Turnberry 1-3x a year

    • I’ve used the tool below. it depends on the type of grip. With plain rubber grips, it works pretty well. Chorded grips are harder. You’ll need grip solvent and be patient. V-GROOVE GRIP REMOVER Safely removes grips from any golf club allowing the grip to be re-used    
    • Pretty amazing the coach was able to get him to make a change that stuck so solidly. 😆
    • Gutted with our local course in such brilliant conditions ... now nothing for least 4wks >> General Guidance New Zealand is now at COVID-19 Alert Level 4. This means New Zealanders not working in essential services must stay at home and stop all interactions with others outside of your household. This is a major step for the country however eradicating this disease is vital to protect people’s health and ensure our health system can cope and look after New Zealanders who become sick. The move to Alert Level 4 has major consequences for the golf sector. From Wednesday 25 March at 11.59pm, all operations at golf clubs must cease for at least four weeks. This means all golf courses, practice facilities, clubhouses, pro shops, bar, function and catering facilities must now be closed. While this a major move for the country, the government is trying to save lives and we urge the golf sector to do all we can to play our part. Regarding the maintenance of golf clubs and facilities during the four-week shut down period, we are working with the government (with the support of Sport NZ) to seek urgent and critical advice. We accept that if golf courses/facilities are not maintained to at least a basic standard over the next four weeks, the task of repatriating to current conditions may not be achievable nor affordable for a great number of clubs. With that in mind, we have asked for two exemptions on behalf of golf facilities: a) If essential and critical maintenance of golf facilities is necessary, it can be undertaken in a strictly solo manner by an individual who lives within the golf facility property.   b) If essential and critical maintenance of golf facilities is necessary, it can be undertaken in a strictly solo manner by an individual who lives outside of the golf facility property. We have been seeking an urgent response to these requests for many days and we remain hopeful that advice is imminent. Until formal advice to the contrary is received, we recommend that no maintenance of golf facilities is undertaken during the shutdown period. New Zealand Golf will continue to communicate any updates through our website, social platforms and via direct correspondence.
    • I’ll just share an anecdotal story about a pro from our country. He didn’t make it on the European Tour but pretty much anyone who is working in golf in Slovenia was pretty certain he would the first to do so, he was really close, I’d say his hcp was in the +4-5 range at that time. So he went to Sweden to a top coach who is coaching players on the PGA tour. I can’t recall the name. But he forced him to change his swing so that the trail elbow is forced forward in the rotation (think Dustin Johnson-ish). That was last year. The guy still struggles to break 80, can’t hit a fairway for the life of him. Afaik he doesn’t work with the coach anymore but still can’t find his previous swing.
