    • Aren't smartphones banned on tournament days?  How can so many people be blatantly using them?  
    • Our course was re-rated three years ago and I questioned the ratings then. It inflates players Handicaps, IMO. I contacted USGA and they directed me to our local affiliate Metro Am. When I emailed them, I simply requested a copy of the rating notes. I then received a email from our clubs GM who is the PGA - District 7 Director, 2019-2021, PGA of America "the rating notes are not permitted" IMO, the Combo Course tee selections make no sense on the BLU/WHT. The front side players move forward to the white on 3 par 4's On the back, they move up on 6 holes. 2 - par 4's both par 5's and both par 3's.  Anyway, I have 15 years with 7K rounds recorded and the scores at the blue are almost equal at the Front and Back Rows are Gold, GLD/BLK, Black, BLK/BLU, Blue, BLU/WHT, White, RED/WHT and Red The three I highlighted have a significance slope difference. 
    • I've been Playing Golf for: 4 months My current handicap index or average score is: 35-40 My typical ball flight is: Push or Draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Duffs and Tops   Hi All   Been playing for a few months and really struggle with tops, duffs, just not striking it well at all.   I pretty much spray balls all over the fairway too but not to fussed about that at the minute.  Been to see a coach and he showed me a few things.  He wanted me to attack the ball on a steeper plane, move my head less and shift my weight more/come forward when I swing.  I've already started to implement the changes and they're paying off.  Still struggle to make good connection with the ball, and the distance is all over the place.  The coach said I should be able to hit a 7 iron 155-160 (instead of the 130-140 I hit it now) with my swing speed when I'm going for it, but whenever I try to go over what feels like 60-70% I cant make contact.  The few times I have struck it really well when I swing hard I'm knocking the ball miles but it's so few and fair between it's not worth it.    I have started to try and swing in as big of a arc as possible and that seems to have improved my striking a lot.  And a friend mentioned today that I'm not holding the my lag long enough in the down swing, but I'm not really sure how to address that, or whether I even should at this stage. Any help much appreciated   Cheers     Videos:  [Delete this, Embed Videos Here - https://thesandtrap.com/how-to/embed-videos/]
    • Angle lets you see the beginning of driver traj (as Woods would say).  
    • I think it's the idiot who voluntarily put himself in this disadvantaged situation.  Which wouldn't be the golf course/club.
