Where in OC is this? I would love to try and hit balls into a boat. 🙂

Looks like they had the good sense to pull down the yardage signs @ SA. 

This was Brookside, but SA was similarly flooded. They never take down the signs, you just can’t see them when they’re submerged 😂

That’s the Islands Driving Range on Ball Road in Anaheim, right next to the East side of the 57 freeway.

Hi Everyone,

 

We’re planning on Diamond Bar this Sunday morning at 8:40, anyone want to make a 4th?

@tehuti, @Chasing_Bogeys And myself are three with @Shindig doing volunteer work at the LA Open.

Please let us know if you want to join, or we might get stuck in a 5-some 🥺

@Lihu, @Chasing_Bogeys, @Shindig Hey guys. It’s not looking too good weather wise for Sunday. Do we need to cancel, or wait it out?

 

If you folks bail, I’ll go up into the mountains to ski and board 😁

But, yeah, it looks like rain on Sunday...

My kid turned up sick today so I logged on to cancel.

I’ll concur with you and @tehuti then... we’ll delay...

I actually got in 18 this morning at Willowick in Santa Ana before the weather got ugly.

Nice!

Anyone want to try this up coming weekend? Weather should be okay?

I've never played Willowick - how is that course? Is it walkable?

I'm going to try to play on Saturday afternoon. Hoping to get a tee time around 1pm. Not sure if I'm going to play DeBell (Burbank) or Brookside or Hansen Dam. I'm taking kids for a hike in the morning and not sure when we'll be back so not sure when I'll get out. I can text you guys Saturday when I have a plan if you want?

I can't play on Sunday.

Willowick is okay. Not the best maintained course, but it is challenging, walkable and not too expensive. It’s my unofficial “home” course for 2019 through the SCGA. I want an official handicap this year to meadure my progress.

thanks for the willowick quick review. 🙂 "Walkable and not expensive" - sounds like my kinda place!

Good luck on Sunday. One of these weekends we'll get us all out as a 4some. When the weather starts to cooperate it will be easier to plan.

Saturday afternoon works for me as well at Brookside.

Have any of you played the Navy course in Cypress? I haven’t been there since the 90s, but it was a nice track back then. It is open to the public now.

    • Here are my top five favorite and least favorite players currently on the PGA Tour. Favorites------------Jason Day, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Francesco Molinari Least Favorites----Dustin Johnson, Bill Haas, Billy Horshel, Rory Sabbatini and Hunter Mahan                                                                                                                                           I don't really dislike the last five as much as I just catch myself pulling against them when they are in contention. (Also, I realize Haas and Mahan are not in the top 125 right now). Who are your favorites and least favorites?
    • Well, it's not an absolute, of course.  It's just a tendency to fare well in the long game and crap out in the short game.  (BTW, the 7-iron over the green was pretty useful information for me.  It is the result of my fiddling with the swing.  Looks like I am getting about 20-30 yards extra off my irons with this hips-first swing.) BTW, on the 7 you quoted, I hit a 2nd shot off the tee since the right shoreline is tree-lined and I did not think I could get a decent drop.  I should have put that part in there.  Naturally that faded some and ended under a tree anyway. pfft Klineka, we are so far off the topic now that I have nearly forgot the point. Actually, this thread has been off point for a long time anyway.
    • made some changes and have a few DTL videos to share. noticed inconsistent ball position was causing some previously unexplained mishits. using a couple of alignment rods to fix this. widened stance and feeling more centered foot pressure. just feels more solid. keeping chin higher at address and throughout backswing. much easier to get a full turn and had the unintended consequence (along with wider stance) of reducing lateral head movement when i load up (à la henrik stenson). using a neutral grip now. most frequent miss has turned into a pull. neutral grip helps prevent pull hooks. first video is a drill (7-iron) i'm using to improve tempo and separation. it's the drill i love to hate: challenging and significantly reduces power but very helpful. this particular swing is acceptable but i want to try to get more separation. 1) i need better core strength and to do more pelvic exercises. and 2) i need to trust the top half will follow the bottom half. feedback or questions? second video is about 80% tempo with a p-wedge. there's a clear difference between this and the drill swing. i hit this ball dead straight but it could've easily been a 10-yard pull if my timing was slightly off. i want to fix this so i don't rely on timing and i think that starts with a more consistent path on the backswing (like in the drill) and getting better separation so i don't jump at the ball from the top before sliding/turning with the lower half. feedback or questions? third video is an example of how much more drastic this swing flaw looks with longer irons. here i'm hitting a 16.5* driving iron. saved the shot with good timing and roasted a baby pull fade but it could have turned out badly. i want this club to be my fairway finder. have made solid progress in the last few weeks but still have a bit of work to do before i'm comfortable bagging it. feedback or questions?  
    • I wear jeans to work, and thus find myself on the driving range wearing jeans quite frequently.   No real positive or negative to swinging in jeans.  a bit hot in the summer.   kinda nice in the fall.   
    • I second what @billchao says. You want someone to take a look at your swing. But if you're going to look on YouTube, just for general knowledge on the swing, I would check out Eric Cogorno. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClOp9ASmFYATO1zFfpB7QlA Or Athletic Motion Golf https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvtpTGbGiMgI8gWlsMUmdLA
