    How to Make a Centered Hip Turn

    Always enjoy it when I hear a mechanics piece described in a new or different way. Good visual for the pivot from a great coach/instructor who happens to teach at my club.

    Golf Philosophy… Which One for You?

    Philosophy Three: You don't care where anyone else plays from or what clubs they hit. You face each shot with every intention of playing it exactly as you imagine. And you maintain that attitude no matter what happens. Happy Holidays everybody...keep hitting the ball.
  3. Guys, the answer is right there. If you have a head made of aluminum, and you put a tungsten screw in the toe… the CG moves toward the toe and the head gets heavier as well. Density of all metals is not the same.

    You guys ever hear of " Google" ?!!

Also, it doesn’t hurt that...

    Faksakes' Experiment

    Sorry to see you go. You received nothing but honest and straightforward opinions here along with some facts presented by experts. Life is a learning experiment. All of it. Appreciate what others have to offer and learn from other’s ideas whether you agree or not. Choosing the less traveled road can be rewarding, but don’t take it if you can’t accept where it may take you. Take care. Cheers.

    The screw is made from either heavier or lighter metal than the rest of the head

    My Swing (Stryde7)

    I went through a similar change not real long ago, as you can see if you look at my swing thread. When @iacas says to just work on the change to your address position, get comfortable with it, it sounds pretty simple. And its not!. I mean, its simple, you're standing there relatively motionless, you should be able to position yourself any way you want to. But it will feel weird to stand taller in the knees, bend a bit more at the hips, let your hands fall a little further from your hips, possibly feel your weight move a little away from your heels and towards your toes. You'll think your knees are locked, yet the camera will still show lots of flex. So give yourself some time to get comfortable with the revised set-up. One thing at a time is the way to do it. Good luck!

    Top Golf Auburn Hills, Michigan

    I learned that most of the bays are left to walk up visitors. They have very little times set for reservations. There is a $5 one time lifetime donation membership required. The fees are per bay, not per golfer / hour. The Auburn Hills prices are as follows: Open until noon: $25 / hour Noon until 5 pm: $35 / hour 5 until close: $45 / hour Topgolf - Auburn Hills

    My Swing (Typhoon92)

    So… are you going to work on what you should actually work on, then?

    My Swing (chspeed)

    I agree with what you're saying. It gets across the line, and then it kinda swoops under. I think you're working on the right thing. The elbow position will help, but the wrist conditions and forearm angles are the main driver here.

    3/4" Off Driver Shaft

    I'm going to a club fitter tomorrow with my driver to see what they say about what shaft I should be using, length, stiffness, kick point and all the rest. We'll see what they say.

    This Is a Lot of Work to Hit a Golf Ball

    He's just missing the scream after the release. 😀

    His priority is finding another sport. Maybe table tennis?

    Failure To Include an Unknown Penalty

    Wiseass. 😄 Technically you won't be allowed to share that answer. 🙂 As you probably know the Rules for Match Play are different because only ONE person has an interest in the outcome - your opponent at the time (I should say one side, not one person). But yeah, I think that's a conflicting or at least curious thing to put in there, because it says that a player must know the Rules and applies a harsher penalty for not knowing them. Anyway… I don't know what on earth you're talking about, because you're just making up your own rules now. There's no way you get to decide what rule they "should have known" in this case. You have to go by their word. If the USGA/R&A meant for highly unusual situations… no… I can't even finish that thought. For example, when Camilo Villegas brushed away a divot as the ball was rolling back down to it, was that a penalty he "should have known" about? No, you don't get to do that stuff. That's not what it's about. You don't get to do that, no. So, honestly, with this new understanding… it actually sounds like you're in favor of the additional two strokes or an additional penalty (you went right to a DQ for something they should have known about), no @Ty_Webb?

    • I am in support of a swing thought. I was not sure the example you gave, not exampled like you just did now, supported that idea.  I would still think those two things are a bit off. First, you have a golfer who thinks of a practice swing feel that produces a desired result. Second, you have a red button emergency stop reaction to something that bothered the golfer. This reaction is something that Tiger must have gotten into his head as a proper reaction. It's not a trained swing thought per say.  I get where you are going, but not sure it's the best way to validate your side. I am on your side with using swing thoughts. 
    • But it still is an example of something changing mid-swing.  His reaction is a result of an outside influence, and Tiger could stop his swing.  The timing to do that and strength is nuts.  So, why can't one go in knowing they have a swing thought and make it happen with more time than those reactions?
    • I would classify that as a reaction. The mind is acting, but it could absolutely be out of our hands.  In this case I say this resembles more of a person avoiding a car crash. We pretty much just view the outcome of our reaction.  Why poke the guy?  Also, a lot of those depend on the time he notices. The earlier he notices the more obvious you see Tiger stop way sooner. The one were he misses the ball, pulling a Kevin Na move, probably happened way later in the swing.  I would say those are all reactions not conscious thought. 
    • Day 20, 20 January,   Having had a lesson yesterday, I worked on my takeaway, and my release through the ball. Used a 7i, and progressed on to working on my driver.
