  1. I had the opportunity to visit @iacas in Erie and spend some time working on my game so I wanted to document my notes here for reference. I'm not going to put them all here, because there is a lot, but these are the main ideas. First of all, thank you Erik for your hospitality, I think we made a lot of progress and I have a good understanding of my swing now and the things I need to work on to get my scores down in the future. Here's my takeaways: Practice slower My tendency is to swing too fast when I'm trying to incorporate changes. Erik would tell me to swing at 50%,

  2. Thats one of the main things i took away from the S&T book, As a fellow glasses wearer theres nothing worse than trying to hit a blurry white blob on the ground . I was always told that not keeping the chin up stopped a full shoulder turn and i suppose if you are trying to keep the flex in the trail knee and restricting the hip turn like a lot of instructions claims you have to do then it may prevent it. Thing is, you dont have to drop the chin that much to be able to see the ball. I get people saying i should get laser eye surgery but there are 3 resons i cant 1. My eyesigh

  3. After 8 years away from golf when I was just learning, I've started back up again. New equipment, lessons, etc. Yesterday, after 8 years away, I went to the driving range. Just like riding a bike, nothing had changed. Topped shots, slices, a few good chip shots. Just like riding a bike. Lol! Looking on the bright side, I've got all winter to solve these issues. I had fun though. I'll be ready by the time spring shows up.

  5. I also think he can bench 145, but he's definitely not a big guy. His wide is more buff than him. . . http://www.playerwives.com/golf/bubba-watson-wife-angie-watson/

  6. They're all good clubs. I played Mizuno MP30s for about 7 or 8 years, and now I'm on my 4th year (I think) with Titleist AP2 714. Lots of good players use some degree of "player-improvement", so its not critical to buy a pure blade. Probably most important is to hit them all before buying, especially if you can try out the various available shafts, especially if you can do a comprehensive fitting. As for wear, you're going to cause wear when you practice and play. Its inevitable, the only way to keep your clubs new and shiny is to put them in a closet. Go ahead and play, don't worry

  7. Here's my suggestion: tilt your head down so you're looking at the ball out of the center of your eyes and through the center of your glasses, not below the frames. Seriously, if you're looking near the bottom of your frames, you're doing it wrong. Glasses wearer here…

  8. They can. If you launch the ball too high with too much spin. Then lowering the loft a degree or to can help out a small amount.

  10. This last 2 weeks i took holidays from work to compete in 2 (inter)national tournaments and my club´s championship. It was the first time i did this, all the tournaments where played less than one hour from my home so i didn´t have to travel. The holidays started on the 28th of october and ended yesterday 12th of november. This is a summary of what and where i played. My handicap it´s 1 but trending to 3 :(. Oct 28 Sat: Club´s Championship Qualifier at my home course. 1st round, shoot 74 (index 70). Oct 29 Sun: Club´s Championship Qualifier at my home course. 2nd round, shoot 73

  11. Like u, i like to test on the range different club path a face angles in orther to produce a consistent type of ball fligth. I ve been doing this in the last 2 years. Before that i always played a pull-fade with an outside to inside swing path with a square face at address. At this moment my most consistent shot it´s a push-draw with an inside to outside swing path, hit down on the ball with a closed face. This works perfect for my mid to short irons. But long irons fly really low and i want to hit up on the ball with driver so this isn´t an option. So i have to have 2 swings, that´s

    • "Anyone who drives faster than you is a maniac! Anyone who drives slower than you is an idiot! - George Carlin" Thanks for the Saturday morning laugh, boogielicious. My old golf partner George Zakarian, may he rest in peace, once told a group of officers at the Fort Eustis golf course, "We may suck, but we suck fast."  Zak and I used to play 18 holes at Norwich Golf Course in Connecticut in two hours, with a cart.  (The 1980's.)
    • Day 5 (12 Jun 21) - Pitch shot work w/9i in the backyard.  Worked on takeaway / follow-thru mechanics, focused on coming straight back with in to out downswing.  Started out with most shots to the right of target and finishing the session with the ball crisp off the club on line or just left of the target.  Finished the drill using 5 different balls just to see how they acted: old “wound” Spalding TopFlite (very soft feeling); a couple of different model modern TopFlites (very clicky off the face); MaxFli (similar to the TopFlites) and a ProV1 (very similar to the wound ball in feel).  Doesn’t mean anything - just fun to hit. 
    • For a 10 stroke penalty, my mind went to an equipment issue like too many clubs or something. 
    • Still looks decent, rain in the morning…   weather.gov has a 15-20% chance for pop up shower/t-storm after noon.
    • Thanks for reminding me.  I recall I holed out from there for a birdie, or at least that is what I tell the grandkids.
