  1. So I am at my local short game practice area. Because I am going to the range afterwards, I have my full bag of clubs which means I also have my Clic Gear Trolley. While focusing on a chip shot with my LW, I hear this commotion behind me. As I turn around, I see my trolley, and bag go flying by. A guy, in a golf cart by himself, has hit my stuff, knocking it about 20'. Not only that, he also ran over my diy shag stick. Being the easy going guy that I am, my first thought was if the guy was alright, and not having some sort of medical episode. He tells me he is fine that he just di

  2. Finally made it back under 10, at 9.6, after nearly a year out of single digits, including a 3 months layoff forced by an illness. It feels good!

  3. It's true! I have become a non-golfer!....................by my own standards!! LOL Do you remember the ..........."you are a non-golfer, IF....." ......threads? Yes, I started those threads!!! I stopped playing golf in 2016...hanging it up!! I have a golf membership, so I can play every day for the same price all year..... what is up with that? ...quitting. I played Less than 90 rounds in 2016 and already called it quits which is the least golf played in nearly 30 years.... I am living a world of complete insanity. My son is active in another sport and I mostly wat

  5. I gave it a try on the practice green the same afternoon that I wrote that last post. Two thoughts. It took some focus to let the putter passively stroke through contact, and it required a longer stroke to get the ball to the hole than I am used to. However, when I executed it correctly, I was hitting 30+ foot putts within 2-3 feet from the hole, mostly short, but, I expect there to be a bit of a learning curve with this new approach. I have to say that I'm quite excited about this.

  7. I don't find it curious at all. The Rules of golf are more concerned with competitions, and the day to day results as they affect that competition. As such there is very little flexibility in the procedures which are allowable. For handicap, you are concerned with the last 20 scores, and only 50% of those, so there is more latitude as long as the player uses good judgement in choosing the best procedure, one which leads to a result that is reasonably close to the score that he would most likely have posted had the rules mistake not occurred. An honest mistake resulting in an error of a

  9. I practiced for about two and a half hours today. After an early rut where my swing felt profoundly off, which I was able to fix within a few minutes, I began to hit my irons fairly well. I wouldn't say that I was consistent but I am working on it. When hitting my Hybrid I began to hit a chronic hook which I was largely unable to correct today. The positive news is that the swing was generally as good as my swing has ever been. I like where my grip is, I was keeping my right arm inside, keeping my right leg firm, keeping my left arm fairly straight, rotating well with good clubhead speed and r

  10. @TryingtoPlay In simple terms, the ball starts where the face is pointing and curves away from the path.

  11. Isn't this thread politically motivated by it's subject and OP? The post has nothing to do with the architecture or playability of Trump courses. It is asking if anyone would play a Trump course because of the candidacy and the political environment.

  12. I fail to see how the first two things you quoted warranted a response/reprimand while a comment about performing an "upper decker" in the facilities of a Trump course got nothing. Unless I missed it.

  13. Oh, hit driver all day! I do. Absolutely. Accuracy wise driver may be my worst club but as long is trouble is at least 245-255 out, I will hit it till my arms fall off. Not the point of my post. I just don't agree that a driver is easier to put in the play compared to a 2-iron especially if he hits 3I and puts it in play all day. Maybe that's not what you are saying but that's how I am reading into your post. The 5-8 degrees of extra loft counts for something. Now, THAT would be insane.. lol.. Yupp, a premium on accuracy is an individual thing though. To each their ow

  15. Tortorella is grossly over-rated as a coach IMO. I'm not really sure why he keeps getting coaching jobs other than being a "known commodity."

  16. I have never been one to want to have to call a penalty on someone. I don't know how many times I have seen someone reach in their pocket or get another ball out of their bag and not say a word. When that happens, I will always ask them "Are you going to play a provisional ball?" If they say yes, I tell them to announce it.

    • 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.
    • Day 57.  Despite it being a busy day, I found ten minutes to hit a few slow 6-iron shots, priority piece (setup, takeaway) and slow swings.   As usual, this was indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls when hitting. 
    • I believe you are allowed a reasonable amount of time (I don't think it's a predefined limit, but it's somewhere between Brian Gay walking right up after not knocking a putt in and Don January waiting half an hour, closer to the former than the latter) and then ten seconds, after which it is deemed at rest. 
    • And that can be my point. You’ve passed or skipped that stage. As a beginner it might be important 
    • Just to be clear - it was the ball hanging over the lip that caused the timer to start? Instead of standing around and watching, could he have marked his ball and lifted it before it fell in, without penalty? Then replaced it and made the tap in? Or does having it over the lip preclude the marking and lifting? If the ball had not been hanging over the lip and, while he was walking to mark it, a gust of wind or earth tremor had rolled the ball in I'm guessing no penalty, just remove the ball and replace it? Then mark or putt it? And then, lastly and a bit off topic - does the mark need to be directly behind the ball? Can it be marked an inch or two behind the ball as long as the ball is returned to the mark?
