I find Instagram is a bit of a gold mine in terms of golf instruction. Whereas in 2005-2015 it was all YouTube, now it is all moved to Instagram. It is still too many good athletes making beautiful swings (which has absolutely nothing to do with me, as I am neither), but occasionally I find a few good drills for something I was trying to figure out how to do. Like YouTube you still need a filter to forget 90% of what you see, but 5-10% is useful.
Ultimately it is still wasting time. That is the main reason I eliminated Twitter. I was just wasting time. I'd rather put that time into a book.
The other interesting thing is when I would read email on my BlackBerry I would find myself able to reply much easier. My typing is much slower on the the iPhone than when I was using the BlackBerry. I have been toying with the idea of using two phones. One for work emails and one for personal stuff. I haven't figured out the best solution, but I now need to pop open the laptop when I want to write an email of more than a couple of sentences.
Is unsolicited shot/swing advice always a no-no? I often see folks offer advice to people who are clearly beginners, particularly if they are young. But aside from that, is it always bad manners?
Played with a guy today who was shooting ~100. Looked like he played at least semi frequently (a weekend warrior perhaps). He was clearly lining up way right, and was hitting way right all day. I dont think he was adjusting for a hook (or at least i didnt see a single hook/draw all day). If anything i saw him slice a few. I didnt say anything, but wanted to.
