  1. About a 25-30 yard swing. First swing felt clunky with the fourth ball, second swing felt better. With the third swing the fourth ball went way left No change in pitching technique, just made sure to keep turning through the shot.

  2. Here are my pathetic attempts. The second attempt was the least bad.

  3. My Fitness Pal is a great app because it also helps you know what you are burning as well as what you are consuming. I need structure so I joined Weight Watchers in the beginning of October and so far m down 25#, eating healthier than ever and learning new skills for a lifetime. Best of luck to all trying to improve themselves.

  4. Gidday everyone, This is my first post for a while so bare with me. I have been sitting around the14 handicap range for the past couple of years and have been frustrated by ruining great rounds with big numbers on 1 or 2 holes, EG: podium finishes in consecutive monthly medal's recently with 9 and 10 on the card respectively. My course is a group 1 course in Newcastle Australia and is quite penal on way-wood drives and big numbers happen easily if you loose your head. So, this brings me to my point. I went out for a practice round this afternoon to do an experiment that I think everyon

  5. I respectfully disagree with @ Boogielicious on this one. I think your problem starts with your head (doesn't it always!). It looks to me like you're dropping your head substantially on the backswing, then moving it forward on the downswing. This can lead to a lot of issues. I would start with focusing on keeping your head still. For some clues there, search "Steady Head" on this forum.

  6. IF is great for appetite suppression. I also agree about the many small meals crap. Food is food. I'm not necessarily a fan of it for myself, but know people who are and have achieved great results.

  7. I do an intermittent fasting diet. Best diet I have ever used. Easy to lose weight and manage food. No strength losses in the gym. Works awesome with HIIT workouts in increasing GH release. http://fitness.mercola.com/sites/fitness/archive/2013/01/18/intermittent-fasting-approach.aspx?e_cid=20130118_DNL_art_1&utm;_source=dnl&utm;_medium=email&utm;_campaign=20130118 I have used this for 2 years now. I lost 20 pounds in 2 months when I first started it and it is easy to maintain the loss. Takes a little fine tuning with your body but don't b

  8. At 275 lbs, I'd limit it to a gram of protein per LBM (Lean Body Mass). 275 g of protein is difficult and expensive to hit every day. And there wouldn't really be a benefit to it. Everything else I agree with. IIFYM is the way to go.

  9. I do what's called Flexible dieting. I get in about a gram of protein per pound of body weight and use the rest for carbs and fat. As @Slice of Life pointed out, for you it would be best to get a gram of protein be pound of lean mass. I lost 50lbs without restricting any foods. It's very sustainable. http://healthyeater.com/flexible-dieting I track what I eat using My Fitness Pal. You can add or search for foods on there and it'll include the macronutrients. http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ EDIT: @Slice of Life beat me to it

  10. lol @ the Big Macs c omment. Thing is, you can eat whatever you want as long as you hit your target macros (carbs, fat, protein). I ate Wendy's the other day and still met my goals. 1,500 for someone over 200 lbs is probably extreme. At 165 I'm cutting weight at 1,800 calories...so I wouldn't keep it that extreme for a long period of time at least. As far as what percentage it should be, it depends on your goals. While you're trying to become more athletic and minimize muscle loss while losing fat, I'd aim for about a gram of protein per lb of lean muscle. So let's

  11. It could be something akin to the Ryder Cup for amateurs, with its own differences. It would be a large scale amateur national competition, which I think would be cool.

However, when you say you are having a bad day doing drills this is a red flag that you are not practicing with a purpose. The purpose of doing drills is to work on "changing" the picture. If you have time to go through the below thread I think it will describe what it is I mean.

  15. For some reason YouTube doesn't want to process this...here's a VIMEO. Got 3 (2 got up, 1 was basically bladed) on the first pass and got all 4 on the second and third attempt. There was plenty of "dispersion". Zero practice swings, what you see is what you get. I had an advantage from the thin layer of snow. They were also semi frozen foam balls, dunno if that would make any difference to the level of difficulty...but it was also the first time I've hit a ball in two weeks, and the first time I've hit a pitch in well over a month. First attempt was too much leading

  16. Don't stand up with the lower back. Stand up with the legs. You have to squat down first, though.

    • I saw that and like what they have done, too bad I will likely never get to play it ☹️
    • This is a great topic! I collect scorecards and have quite a few interesting ones. Here is one from NC that I like. Nice large print, colorful and I especially like the hole diagrams with some need to know yardages. Lots of space for scores and notes. i would have to give this at least an 8.
    • Found this on Reddit. This ones for you, @David in FL 😃
    • The timer rule exists specifically for a ball overhanging the hole because of the possibility that it may fall in if you wait long enough. There’s no reason to just stand around and watch a ball oscillate slightly otherwise. He could have marked it or he could have just tapped in, both for par. The penalty is simply the additional stroke he should have taken to hole out because he waited too long. If the ball wasn’t marked and it was moved by natural forces, it has to be played from the new spot. If it was lifted and replaced and then moved, it has to be replaced in it’s original spot. A ball marker has to be directly behind or to the side of the ball or a measured distance from the original spot of the ball. You can’t just eyeball the marker a couple of inches from the ball.
    • Notes 4/19: Priority piece: Working on the lead shoulder turning down and around center of chest on backswing. Feel is that lead shoulder propels the club head back and up. COVID-19 day-2 drills are helpful. Looks good in video compared to reference video from last lesson. But contact is all over the face, and I’ve been frustrated lately trying to sort out what has changed. Reviewed some recorded swings from my lessons in March and April compared today. Looks like the flow has gone away. I tried some rehearsals feeling the trail hip move away from target at start of the backswing (along with shoulder priority piece) before “falling” back to target. Hit some balls at slow speed and immediately contact and low point control improved significantly. Did this for about 45 minutes after kids went to bed. Probably hit 30 balls, most strikes centered between the grooves, with a couple toe/heel/fat strikes. Moral of the story is to not sacrifice gains from previous priority pieces for the latest one. Also I should film more often. Actually ordered a Live View Pro camera to facilitate this and hopefully prevent future regression.
