  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.

    • By and large there's a correlation, but it is by no means a guarantee.  Stan Utley has won on tour.  You probably hit it past him, but aren't a single digit.   Don't let anyone tell you the woods are full of long hitters, because so is the world golf hall of fame.  If I were in your shoes (my problem is getting my driving average over 200 and my handicap is comparable to yours, so give this advice some context), I'd get some lessons (if you haven't already) and focus on maintaining your distance while hitting your irons and driver better -- fewer fat or thin shots, etc.   Don't go for someone who wants to reign in your speed to put you 220 in the fairway.  270 in the rough is usually a better position unless your home course is Oakmont or something. If you don't know already, learn to "flight" your wedges and short irons:  you might become much better inside of 180 yards.  
    • Day 54, opposite of yesterday:  early start, late finish at work today, but I got to practice putting for half an hour afterward on my way home.  I did around-the-world from 4', truly trying to make every putt and see.  Rather than go until I made all 12 (let's face it, I figured it wasn't going to happen before the course closed for the night, plus I have an early tee time tomorrow), I did five iterations and counted how many I made.  7, 7, 8, 8, 11 -- and on that last iteration, I made the first ten in a row.  Hitting the last few, I don't think I wanted putts to drop that much in some recent tournaments (that might have been the problem there).   That 11 in particular was very confidence building, even though it could have been familiarity.  Next time I should switch holes between iterations so I'm not putting from familiarity or something.  
    • Hello all, I have been playing for a few years and have some bad habits. My head is full of videos trying to fix my swing. It’s like I can’t get my hip out of the way which creates a chicken wing. Can somebody please give me some  exercise to break myself of this. Thank you so much in advance!video.
    • There is a Member Swings section of the forum. Follow the instruction on how to make a video of your swing and post it in that section. 
    • First few rounds at my new home course, TPC Summerlin. 74 Saturday from the Shriners Tees (7200 yards), 71 Sunday and 70 today from the TPC tees (6400).
