  1. Here we go. These are the pictures from 10-27-18. Made a lot of changes. Most of it was very natural for me and it mostly how I used to swing. There’s a chance progress will fast...probably best that it’s winter and I won’t be able to push it too fast.
  2. This is the wrong way to look at it if you're talking about improving scoring. A scratch golfer averages about 9-12 GIR. They need their short game up to 50% of the holes they play and more on a bad day. If your short game is a glaring weakness, address it. It's not as significant a contributor to your score as the long game, but that doesn't mean it should be ignored, either. You're probably joking a bit but I've seen others comment with the similar mindset.
  3. I got this a month or two ago (the iOS app only shipped at the end of August, and it wasn't fully featured at that time). I need to email them to figure out how to use the wrist portion if you don't use a glove. But otherwise… I'm looking forward to experimenting with this more.
  4. NSAIDS can actually help this. Along with rest which is the hardest thing to do. But if it’s that persistent you should get imaging done to evaluate the actual injury. If it’s a partial tear then NSAIDS/Ice/Rest may be all that’s needed..maybe some splinting as well. But If the tear is significant you may need a surgical approach. Almost all the time inflammation is the root cause of these issues so NSAIDS can certainly provide help. When nerves get involved NSAIDS are less helpful. Good luck and take care.
  5. Shot my lowest round, 63, weird thing is I was just missing it well and putter was really solid. Definitely had better ball striking (contact wise) rounds lately. Out of eight makable birdies putts, inside of around that 7-8ft circle I made six of them. Then made two 25 footers and chipped one in just off the green on 16, almost putted it but changed my mind lol I got really nervous on 17 tee, never been -8 before and just stuck with the process and managed to birdie 18. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/mvmac83/round/2432567
  6. I would - you don't want that inflammation to sit there too long and NSAIDs generally won't help that
  7. Those changes look great. The difference in that last pic is cool with your arms more extended. Keep it up.
  8. Maybe I should start a crowdfunding campaign 😜
  9. For Cameron Champ, mostly any of the A1-4 positions. For Tiger, anyone position. Bubba, A3/A4 caddy or dtl JT, yeah A4 or 5 dtl Not Charles, it's Tyler Gulliksen from USD golf. Think that's Patrick Rodgers.
  10. Make sure the shaft tip does not have a burr. Use emery cloth or sand paper to smooth the edge. Also, if they are not sliding up on the staff, liquid soap or as mentioned above, Chap Stick. And you could bore the ferrules by hand twisting them on a drill bit. If all fails, try different brands of ferrules. Make sure you are ordering "Parallel" not Tapered.
  11. Day 299 Just some.light pitching, and chipping practice this morning. I like early morning practices. Not only does it help my golf game, it's also a great way for me to start my day with some exercises. Focus was on just hitting the ball to my chosen landing areas, which were towels I had laid down as targets. Even hit a few of them. Edit; some where I messed up my continuous practice day numbers for 2018. Today is the 299th day of 2018. I thought it was 300th day. So, I have two "Day 299s". I know I have not missed a day of golf practice, or play this year. Just want to be accurate in my count...lol
  12. I feel like this change in rules further pushes golf away from a "self policing sport". It's pretty hard to self police if you don't know what you are policing for.
  13. Can’t play a shank. So no, I’ve never just allowed for that. 🤣
  14. If that's her shot pattern, it's not necessarily a mishit or a "bad" shot at all.
  15. Welcome to TST! I would recommend adding a putter. 🙂 Also, you might want to consider a 3 wood. You may want to add either a hybrid or 5 wood depending on your gapping and preference. Also if you have a yardage gap between your SW and PW you can always add a gap wedge (or some call it an approach wedge). Basically, I would try to get yardages for all your existing clubs and try to fill the gaps where the need is.

    • I play the original eye 2 sw. in 57.5 degrees. Awesome club.  You can pick up the original on eBay for 50 bucks. They don’t get much better.  I don’t like a 60 even though I keep one on the cart. It only gets used every 5 rounds. The 57.2 degrees for me is perfect all around. It moves through grass like a hot butter knife. The only way I don’t like it is off hardpan. Because of the bounce.  Do yourself a favor and if anyone you know has one borrow it and play around with different shots it’s sweet
    • You can put a kitchen sink in there as long as your under 50lbs domestically, I think it’s a bit more internationally (from experience not by reading the rules).  I once put my favorite dress shoes in my golf bag on an overnight HNL-SFO-DFW to Tampa, I barely made it, and my golf bag never did. AA paid me $1500, I took a loss, and now put one of those locators when I travel with my clubs.  They were a nice set, and I was young.
    • Yeah, no. C'mon man. You didn't explain it wrong, it's just a really bad idea.
    • Day 39.  Speed Stix, protocol one..  First time with triple digits (100 on the nose) on the red stick in this iteration.   Didn't do the Speed Stix the past week due to not feeling as great.  Somehow didn't stop me from playing two rounds of golf in the time though.
    • Tell the group in the halfway house you are playing through and there is no need for them to rush.  I would deliver the news while the others tee off.  It can be awkward when the other group saunters up while you are teeing off unless you said something. I learned a long time ago when you have an opportunity to go, take it or you almost always regret it.
