  1. Colin lives on… a planet with 35-minute hours.
  2. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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:
  6. 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.
  7. Can't find it in a better resolution, can make out the writing though fuzzy.
  8. 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.
  9. 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".

    • View this round on GAME GOLF We played fourball;  took 19 holes to finish.  I deleted the 19th, should I have kept it in the round?  I wasn't sure how it would affect things.  
    • Day 24.  Played Fourball with partner.  We won and are onto the finals for our club's fourball championship   As for my round, some of the high scores I can blame on "it's fourball and I did something risky because it made sense at the time." View this round on GAME GOLF Some, I cannot. At some point, I wonder if some of the conventional wisdom about how match play shots to decide is different from stroke play applies to my flight.  Maybe I should employ my strategy for a typical stroke play round during the upcoming match play tournament. 
    • Koepka earned just over $7 last year and over $5 so far this year. Plus commercial endorsements and appearance money. Maybe he is that rigid in his thinking. He makes the choice of what equipment he plays. If he's comfortable with his gear, those major exemptions are worth big bucks. If he's comfortable with his gear maybe he does win his 10 plus majors.  He seems a guy that has a goal. We all have egos. His might just be majors and maybe he is able to scrape by on $20 or more a year, until his share price really explodes and  someone throws $100 at him.    
    • My current bag has a 5-way divider and my previous bag had a 6-way divider.  I think these are more than enough.  I understand people who want 14-way dividers, but 3 to 4 clubs max in a divider is simple enough.  For me weight is not an issue as I use a trolley or a caddie.  I have literally never carried my own bag.  One of the advantages of cheaper labour I guess
