  1. I've played on all of the ones on the list plus I played the day of my wedding and the day after my wedding.
  2. "@iacas correct me if I'm wrong, but you're not really the lesson-taking type, so your practices are going to be a bit different than someone who is working to change something." You are correct in your assumptiont on my practice time. My practices are more of a maintenance type of thing. Just trying to keep what I already have, most useful when I need it. I use to work on specific things in a slow deliberate manner, but those days are now long over for me. Have been for quite a few years. Now days, with some of the physical limitations I have to deal with, I just use my own "KISS" practice regimine.
  3. Snakes don't bother me. I will give really poisonous ones a great deal of respect, but non-venomous snakes are an opportunity for a chase!
  4. England Golf did just that a couple of years ago. Rules did not rate highly as a deterrent.
  5. Football is a simpler game in the sense that all teams play on a field with the same dimensions. What players can or cannot do is based on their position. There is also no honor system in football, referees are hired to oversee the players and determine if the fouls they observed had an impact on the play. A referee could literally throw a flag on almost every play in a football game and be justified in doing so.
  6. I was confused watching the last show because the Pivot seemed to be the favorite of everyone that tested it so I was shocked when they said the Triton was the winner. I don't know how the Triton looks in person but on the show the top of the head reminded me of a skunk.

    Breaking 80 Thread

    76 - 70.0 = 6.0 6.0 * 113/126 = 5.4 differential (or 5.2 if you want to take the 0.96 multiplier right there). 14 nGIR is enough to put you at a 5-9 index pretty consistently. Congrats!
  8. Could be as simple as a set-up issue or as complex as a swing fault. Start a My Swing thread with DTL and FO video and we'll see if we can help. Unless you want random guesses based on your description, in which case, I'm gonna go with your socks are too tight.
  9. I worked all year to break 80. I had broken 80 in years past but got injured last year and it took me a while to get back up to speed. Late summer when I did break 80, I shot a 76. Later shot a 77, 78 and a host of 80's that could of been in the seventies except for a blow up hole, which always seemed to be the 18th... FIR and GIRs were generally over 50% and if I could make A putt I would of had much lower scores. Here are some of the things that help my score: Having a second shot to the green - not in the trees, blocked off etc Chipping close to the hole - this was painful, great when I was on 2 putting minimum - putting cost me a round in the 70's quite often Good course management - not going for stupid things that you shouldn't even consider or getting down on yourself when there is plenty of room to score Keeping stress/tension getting into your hands for important shots
  10. FINALLY!!!!! (fully disclosure, i played solo so I know it technically doesn't count) Shot a +4 76 at Watters Creek here In Plano, TX. Played from the men's tees (whites). Rating from that tee box is 70.0/126. So I guess adjusted would be +6? Not sure how that works. How i did it... GIR/nGIR - 14/18...best ever for me by a long shot Putts - 36..2 - 1 putts, 14 - 2 putts, 2 - 3 putts. Not my best day putting, but I wasn't wasting strokes trying to get on the green. Fairways - I drove the ball well, but didn't hit a lot of fairways. My misses driving in the last month have been much better and don't penalize me like they used too. Hitting the ball longer helps, as LSW points out, since I'm still getting closer to the hole. It was fun and great to see all the work/lessons come together for a round. Hoping to give it another go today!

    • If you look at guys who really bomb it, from amateurs to tour pros, very few of them astonish you with how hard or fast they swing. It's the economy of movement - mechanics -  and timing that generate the speed, power and consequential distance. TIMING is everything. If you played with Marc Leishman, for example you'd  be amazed at how far he hits it, but he wouldn't look as if his swing speed was super fast.  
    • I piss behind trees virtually every round I play. I rarely see golf courses with "rest rooms" on the course. Love the euphemism. Not quite sure what's wrong with the word "toilet".
    • Day 12.  Another day where I spent at least ten minutes hitting a 6-iron indoors.  Off a mat, into a net, mostly not real balls (although at this point it's partly because I haven't unpacked my very-old e6s that I was using as indoor range balls at the previous home).
    • You say your swing looks just as fast as 100mph swings on video, but that might be an overall view of it.  You might be just as fast for most of the downswing, but in reality the speed at impact is slower because you’re not accelerating through the ball. It would be interesting to see what your speed is without the ball.  I’m not an instructor so I don’t know if this is a good test or not, but if it is faster, you should be able to make adjustments that will increase you speed at impact.

    • It’s raining here this week. That’s the equivalent of a major blizzard anywhere else in the country. People start freaking out and driving off the road. Meanwhile I am watching the Weather Channel in hopes it will be clear enough to tee it up by Sunday.
