    2018 Black Friday Deals

    I haven't seen any on my social feeds, there's just this thread in the golf subreddit. Don't see anything earth shattering based on a quick perusal. If there's anything that's amazing, please let us know!

    Cupped Wrist Curse

    Definitely check out the link @Vinsk posted. But in a few words, it sounds like you're talking about the face position at the top of the swing. When it's cupped, for a righty, that face is open. When the face is open, that introduces a lot of compensations coming down. Subconsciously your body knows that face is pointing right and will kick the path left to compensate. Some Tour players have a slight cup at the top, but you can bet it's going towards flat/bowed coming down. When talking bowed vs cupped, I usually am thinking impact, but wrist positions at top and impact are both super important.

    Cupped Wrist Curse

    People often forget that some of golfs essential moves are performed by our human bodies quite often. It is just in the extremely awkward and timing nature of the golf swing where these ‘moves’ become so elusive. For the lead wrist. Imagine you’re hammering a door frame across your body with the frame to your left. (I assume you’re right handed.) You would never imagine striking the wood with a cupped wrist. Hell it would hurt! Drills: First off..go slow. No, slower than that. You can use an impact bag for this when at home. On the practice field, start with small shots. Maybe take your club back to waist high. Focus on your wrist being straight or slightly bowed at impact. There are some devices out that may help with this feeling. ‘Impact Snap’, ‘Watson’s Hanger’ to name a couple. Film yourself, use a mirror. You’ll never really know if you’re doing it properly without visual confirmation. I often feel excellent impact, solid, and a divot after the ball only the see my wrists were just a hot mess at impact. Great place to do some reading. Tons of solid and well researched instruction:

    Welding class putter project

    To be perfectly honest, I'm left handed(so is one student in the group) and didnt want to be left out of the fun of testing the putters.

    Identification & Value

    I don’t believe they are Ben Hogan. If I’m correct Hogan clubs have either ‘BH’ in the octagonal point emblem or at least say ‘Hogan’ somewhere. As for value it’s quite rare for a vintage set to have much value unless there is some ‘celebrity’ connection to them.
  11. Something I considered for my first set was resale value. I wasn't sure if I was going to survive that first summer.. So I bought used, name brand clubs. At the end of the summer, I sold them for close to what I paid, and was able to roll that money into a fitting and another used (albeit much newer) set. I had an instructor who told me the "weight" on an expensive club was much better than on a cheaper club (as he was swinging a 4-iron around w/ one arm). But then he went on to say Phil Mickleson could "beat everyone here with clubs from the Goodwill".

    • Might be a focus thing? I can go driver off the deck just fine but there isn't really a need ever for me. I will play a little stinger driver with a real low tee sometimes that works out nice. Of course with a five degree head you can make any shot a stinger if you choose so lol.
    • Plus, you’re supposed to pay for the cart again. Playing 36 holes a day is overdoing it. I did it a few times, but I’m pretty sure my swing speed was slower back then. Not very a very powerful swing at all... It’s like training for sprints by running marathons.
    • It’s allowed where I am, but there are rules you’re supposed to follow and most don’t. Playing 54 holes is like hitting 4 buckets of balls. I can’t possible see how this helps anyone’s game?!?   My “players club” makes us pay for the cart, but the greens fees are free. However, you’re supposed to check in with the starter for a new tee time. No wonder why PoP is terrible sometimes?
    • Is cleaning the clubs before putting on the covers kind of a pain?   So, the “nerdy” golf look? 😂   I’ve never had to wear a tie as an engineer before either, but was told clip on ties were used by machinists for safety “back in the day” Guessing we missed out on the era of the pocket protector? 🤪   Yes, agree. I can sometimes even tell when a club is missing by the “group clack”. 😁
    • I used to use them. Got fed up of having to take them off, put them back on, forget to put it back on but not realise till i got to the green then have to run back to where i'd dropped it looking like a total muppet. Plus i find the gentle claicking of the irons therapeutic these days.
