    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!
  3. This is Captain Obvious, but wait for Black Friday, companies will usually tweet out deals.

    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".

    • I average 3.5 rounds a week. Playing for 10 years now, so that makes more then 1500 but less then 2000 rounds. 
    • You could also spend five bucks on a roll of lead tape and play around with the weighting. You might wind up with your ideal putter (slathered with lead tape but handsome is as handsome does), or you might figure out what you really want in your next putter. 
    • The @iacas ratio, when I applied it to my game when I am ale to have a day of practice, has made a significant improvement in my game.  Now, I am not 110% slavish to it.  I don't quite measure it with watch and/or calculator, the end results have shown me where my strengths and weakness do, indeed, lie.  When I add up my minutes/week on what I practice, it is clear.  For example, I have come to understand that the better I got with my hybrids, my total came took leaps and bounds.  I also learned that by making my tee shots focus on aim as well as distance, I needed fewer long second shots. Same for the rest of my game. It is that routine which is close to the ratio of shots I actually play that has allowed me to focus on the game as a whole.  For example, I don't spend a ton of time on shots from bunkers.  But getting my shots to stay more in line, I don't often hit bunkers and with the practice I do on my overall game, I don't fear them. Now, I will bring  evolvr.com into my game.
    • I have been waiting for the final verdict in this issue. In my unbiased opinion, the first time warning was a good call on the USGA's part. There was absolutely no need to change this youngster's future by taking away her amateur status. It seems the USGA did a fair investigation of the issue.  She learned a lesson, and is now able to carry on with what ever her amateur status brings forth for her. A possible scholarship for a free education is a pretty good deal for any youngster..  Yes, I know. Rules are rules, breaking rules of any kind have consequences. I know in my own past, ( probably my future too)  I have broken rules of one kind or another. I doubt there is anyone on this forum who hasn't broke a rule of some kind, some where in their past or future. It's because I am not perfect human being that I think in this case, the USGA made the right decision with a first time warning.
