  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. To echo what @nevets88 said, keep filming your practice to make sure you are doing it the same way. Also, if you have a mirror, 5 minutes of mirror work can help a lot. It looks really good.

  4. Heading to Pinehurst with a buddy 2 weeks from Thursday for a long weekend. Playing Talamore, Mid South, and Dormie Club. The trip came up last minute and wanted to keep it on a budget so skipped out on the Pinehurst resort courses and Tobacco Road for now. If the schedules work out we might play a round or have a drink with @DaveP043 who helped me narrow my course decisions down and gave me some local knowledge.

  5. I'm not sure what your points are with these posts with respect to the subject of this thread. If you want to start a thread about swing speed and age, or experience, please start it. This thread is more about the internet exaggeration of distance. What you are posting really doesn't apply. Thanks.

  6. What I love about Golf?? I love the challenges that every new round and course brings, I love being in the outdoors and away from work, and I can just be me and enjoy the game we all love playing!!!

  7. Thanks 👍 Yep. Like Hogan said, it's not how good your good shots are, it's how bad your bad shots are (or something to that effect). Trending to a +3.2 index now (+4 at my club), at the beginning of the month I was a +2.0, pretty crazy jump. Out of my last ten rounds, eight have been under par, one was even par and one was over par. I'm saving my winnings for when I have to give four shots back and nobody will want to be my partner lol

  8. Proceeding without knowing what's going on is not a positive! I should have added another bullet point: Don't consider just one type of golf, like the golf you see on TV. These rules affect ALL of golf. As do I. I can see how people thought an outright DQ was too harsh, but two strokes seemed like an appropriate penalty, to me, for failing to uphold your responsibility to know and play by the Rules.

  9. Broadie defines short game as within 100 yards of the hole which still requires long game mechanics, so yes there is quite a bit of overlap, but if you're talking more about pitching and chipping, the stroke is a bit different. Still fairly easy to get decent at compared to the full swing.

  10. I thought this was going to be the new challenge at the next NE staff outing 😜

  11. Too much sway resulting in far too much reverse tilt: That might be enough to get you started, but it's gonna have to feel pretty extreme for awhile.

    • I saw that and like what they have done, too bad I will likely never get to play it ☹️
    • This is a great topic! I collect scorecards and have quite a few interesting ones. Here is one from NC that I like. Nice large print, colorful and I especially like the hole diagrams with some need to know yardages. Lots of space for scores and notes. i would have to give this at least an 8.
    • Found this on Reddit. This ones for you, @David in FL 😃
    • The timer rule exists specifically for a ball overhanging the hole because of the possibility that it may fall in if you wait long enough. There’s no reason to just stand around and watch a ball oscillate slightly otherwise. He could have marked it or he could have just tapped in, both for par. The penalty is simply the additional stroke he should have taken to hole out because he waited too long. If the ball wasn’t marked and it was moved by natural forces, it has to be played from the new spot. If it was lifted and replaced and then moved, it has to be replaced in it’s original spot. A ball marker has to be directly behind or to the side of the ball or a measured distance from the original spot of the ball. You can’t just eyeball the marker a couple of inches from the ball.
    • Notes 4/19: Priority piece: Working on the lead shoulder turning down and around center of chest on backswing. Feel is that lead shoulder propels the club head back and up. COVID-19 day-2 drills are helpful. Looks good in video compared to reference video from last lesson. But contact is all over the face, and I’ve been frustrated lately trying to sort out what has changed. Reviewed some recorded swings from my lessons in March and April compared today. Looks like the flow has gone away. I tried some rehearsals feeling the trail hip move away from target at start of the backswing (along with shoulder priority piece) before “falling” back to target. Hit some balls at slow speed and immediately contact and low point control improved significantly. Did this for about 45 minutes after kids went to bed. Probably hit 30 balls, most strikes centered between the grooves, with a couple toe/heel/fat strikes. Moral of the story is to not sacrifice gains from previous priority pieces for the latest one. Also I should film more often. Actually ordered a Live View Pro camera to facilitate this and hopefully prevent future regression.
