  2. @iacas and Dave for years have used a similar image of the torso/hips transferring "downhill". Surfing or snowboarding downhill.

  3. Hi everyone. Clay Ballard here. I am a golf instructor and new member to the forum. I thought I would write a little about myself for anyone who might be interested in what I teach. I have always been impressed with the huge number of dedicated golfers on this forum. I figured I would sign up and start to chime in when I have some free time. You guys are awesome!! A little about me, for those who might want to know. First of all, I am probably the luckiest person you know. I get to do what I love for a living and help people enjoy this game. It doesn't get much better than

  5. I believe that the researchable measurable reality is that MOST golfers play BETTER with GIs and SGIs, once they try them out for a while... It used to be the case that pros (who are NOT practical models for most players to emulate, anyway, given their extreme gifts and massively focused dedication and TIME investment in this funny little game) didn't play hybrids, either, and didn't play graphite shafts in irons; even that is changing, however. Does that mean that you and I shouldn't play hybrids or graphite shafts? Play what you have the most fun with, because unless you are

  6. This was done with a wedge that has 22° bounce: Short answer is that you can pitch from hardpan type lies with a lot of different types of clubs, though I'd avoid high bounce PLUS wide sole.

  7. That would totally annoy me. If there is any chance of hitting the guys in front it is downright dangerous to play. Look at the Brooks Koepka hitting thst woman in the eye incident.

  8. Club Champion is offering 50% discount on a full club fitting and 33% off on all other fittings. This is good between 11/5/18 to 1/31/19. I've called the Michigan location in Royal Oak to verify.

  10. When considering SGI irons, shaft testing is really critical. In 2009 I switched out my irons for the first time in a decade. I tried the Ping G10s, and the Callaway (first wave) Big Berthas and the X20s. The G10s and Berthas high-launch heads and high-launch shafts, and popped up the short irons too high. The X20s, however, had a mid-launch Uniflex shaft, and got me decent but not too much height. As for all irons, the head is only half the club. The head and shaft both affect the launch height of the club. (Ball type influences this too).

  11. Unless you're 12 where you still have a chance of being a good golfer, or you plan to quit your day job and practice 4 to 6 hrs a day, get the clubs that will make this game as easy as possible. Those are the SGI irons. Seriously Cobra, Mizuno (JPX-EZ), Callaway (XR) make some very nice SGIs and GIs. Cobra has probably the best bang for the buck. They're very underrated, and usually get their first markdown in July. I've been gaming my set for two years and don't look to replace them any time soon. I seem to hit them the best. But just remember, just because you have a few games in the lo

  12. You are, of course, absolutely right. But I don't have the same mindset about golf. I just think of it as a game that's fun. I play with old friends, on old public courses, and have a great time trying out different shots, clubs, etc. Belonged to a private club once and never saw more unhappy golfers, all with the newest equipment money could buy. Nothing wrong with that, just not for me.

  13. Most pros don't play SGI for the aforementioned reasons. However, I remember K.J. Choi playing with with a 3,4,and a 5 hybrid last year instead of long irons.

  14. VCoG and RCoG will have more affect on trajectory. A CoG that is higher and closer to the face will produce a lower trajectory. A CoG low and rearward in the head will produce a higher trajectory. Curving the ball is all about face angle at impact relative to path direction. 85% of the ball's initial direction is determined by the clubface angle and only 15% of the ball flight is determined by the path. Curving the ball is pretty straightforward.... for a righty to draw/hook the ball, club face is closed the the path. An open face relative to the path will fade/slice. Pros i

  15. I looked on ironfinder.com and they say the Laser FX forged was 90-93, after that it became the FX2. Ram used to make some really nice irons, and since yours are cavity back, not blades, they might work very nicely for you. I personally play FX2 GT Steel (non-forged) irons with factory graphite shafts and absolutely love them. I have tried some FX with steel shafts and found them to be somewhat dead feeling, presumably the shaft was too stiff for my tastes. What flex are yours? Bottom line is that if they feel good to you, play 'em. Don't let anyone tell you they aren't good enough beca
