  1. Any time one is playing a match type of competition (like a traditional match or a skins game), the hole handicaps are necessary to determine where strokes are to be given. If I take my 15 handicap and play against a 22, I would expect to give him 7 strokes. Those strokes should be received on the holes where he deserves to get them - that is, the number 1 thru 7 handicap holes. Those who just automatically say that the hole handicaps are flawed probably don't have any real understanding of how the system works. That or they don't ever play in match competitions. The individual hole handi

  2. Odds are you don't hit the ball too high. Every scratch or Division 1 college level player I have seen hits the ball noticeably higher than everyone else. A lot higher.

  4. Quite often, a lot of them will "spin out." Consider the number of times you've heard of pros "clearing the hips." I can't speak specifically because some pros fake more secondary axis tilt but get the handle down quickly to ensure good contact. Some do other things to shift the plane line right to offset the spinning hips. Others do other things. In general, though, if the pros who sag their trail knee would bank the foot and not crash through the P1 knee wall, they'd hit the ball higher. LPGA women, in general, use their hips very poorly and are very "spin (rotation)-ori

  5. Well the issue is, that green is nasty to begin with, there's basically no flat spots, and in the summer its hell. It gets hard, and fast. These greens drain way to well, even after 5+ inches over normal there not soggy at all, and after one dry day they started to speed up alot. But that 15th hole is a nasty sucker, short 300 yard par 4, but if the pins front right, and your above it, you can tap your putt and it will go 4 feet past the hole. In the middle of the green there is another funnel, back of the green is hell. I like it alot, its fun to putt on. I was just curious if A

  6. But he does. I hit balls at the range where he teaches. Last week he hit my 8 iron 170 and the shaft is rubber compared to his clubs. We look at that fluid easy-going swing and think "no way", but I've seen up close and still find it hard to believe. I think the point of listing yardages is to indicate that with a relaxed properly timed swing the ball actually goes that far. Part of the key is where the hands are at impact and how the club is unloading at exactly the right moment. I always doubt my eyes when I see Els on TV swing a wedge so smooth and easy and he hits it 150-165. And seeing

    • Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on Wednesday that that estimate is dependent on significant numbers of Americans being willing to be inoculated with one of several vaccines in various stages of development. If 75 percent to 80 percent of Americans are vaccinated in broad-based campaigns likely to start in the second quarter of next year, then the U.S. should reach the herd immunity threshold months later. If vaccination levels are significantly lower, 40 percent to 50 percent, Fauci said, it could take a very long time to reach that level of protection. “Let’s say we get 75 percent, 80 percent of the population vaccinated,” Fauci said. “If we do that, if we do it efficiently enough over the second quarter of 2021, by the time we get to the end of the summer, i.e., the third quarter, we may actually have enough herd immunity protecting our society that as we get to the end of 2021, we can approach very much some degree of normality that is close to where we were before.”
    • This is from infectious disease experts and Dr. Fauci made this statement I believe.  I get my information directly from a panel of experts but I can’t quote them for legal reasons...but I believe this information is available publicly.
    • I picked "other" because there's no "all of the above, depending on circumstances." Though almost never "pocket" or "Take off before round and replace after round" with the driver or woods.
    • Thanks. Glad to be here. Yeah, I was pretty upset when I posted that. Every time I think I've "figured it out" I think I've "mastered the draw" it all falls apart. Last week I told the ball claim guy to go buy a lottery ticket, because I hit draw after draw. But yeah, the problems I had on the range yesterday gave the brief urge to snap my five iron and chunk my golf bag. The fact that my idiot brother-in-law possibly  exposed my wife, kid, and mother-in-law to the virus and they're isolated there and I'm isolated here may have also played a role in said frustration. I may have had a couple drinks in me when I posted that as well. Possibly.
