  3. Interesting. I haven't noticed the charge dropping in cold weather, although I have the iPhone X. My phone/golf swing filming issues happen in summer when the phone overheats if it's in the sun. But Apple does discuss performance in cold weather: From Apple's support site: "In order for a phone to function properly, the electronics must be able to draw upon instantaneous power from the battery. One attribute that affects this instantaneous power delivery is the battery’s impedance. A battery with a high impedance may be unable to provide sufficient power to the system that needs it. A bat

  5. The other day I was playing, and my wife was with me . she was not playing, just driving the cart. I was playing with a couple of strangers, and was holding my own, score wise. My wife was watching, and keeping my score. During our time together during this round, we talked vey little about golf. We spent the time discussing family stuff. Like any family, our family is going through some stuff, both good, and bad. Three family members, representing three generations are dealing with some serious medical issues. Occasionally she would tell me athat I hit a good shot. On other o

  6. Until you find a club to fit that yardage I’d really focus on distance control with the pw. My suggestion, if you don’t already is to download a golf app that gives GPS yardage. I use 18 birdies. Focus on the length of the backswing necessary to generate the correct distance when you hit the half wedge, 3/4 wedge and in time you will feel automatic from the yardage. I had that problem last year. I can hit my gap 110 or so. My 56 on a full swing is 70-80 so I had to learn to take the right amount off of the gap for everything from 75-105 and in time, knowing my exact yardage, it became very eas

  7. We bought a house in a bluff overlooking a river. Across the street is the county club. We were looking for a house with a pool but when we saw the view from our deck we fell in love. Our country club family is wonderful. We take the cart to dinner and my wife plays dominos with the women on Tuesday and Thursday. Poker us Thursday night. For me. We love the club. The cost is roughly what we would have spent on chemicals for a pool. My father and I could only talk through golf. He wasn’t very good dad. I took it up to get to know him. He would have been 84 yesterda

  8. mudder noun mud·der | \ˈmədə(r)\ plural -s Definition of mudder 1 : a race horse that runs well on a wet or muddy track 2 : a player or a team (as in football) that performs well on a wet field After my final round of 2018, I was thinking about the course conditions the past month or so. While we have had relatively mild weather, it has been wet. I don’t do particularly well in wet and muddy conditions. I play in all sorts of weather: hot, windy, cold, rainy. Of all the conditions, a wet course presents the greatest challenge for me. I am no

  10. Yes, you need to dial in on getting the right gap wedge. Mine is 50* and I hit it about 100 yards and love the club as this is a common approach distance for me and feel very comfortable with it in my hand. My PW is 45* and I hit it about 120 yards I like this club too. Something else to consider is the milling/grooves on wedges. If you have a mixed set this might be a reason that you are seeing inconsistent gaps between clubs. If the face of the wedge causes it to spin more, it could cause the ball to carry fewer yards than expected just based on loft.

  11. I suggest you update your swing thread so people can see what you're doing with your current changes. My first thought regarding the reduction in swing speed is that maybe you might have become too passive with the upper body. Arm speed is important in generating swing speed.

  12. I play the course I am at, and, to be honest, never have I cared and never have I not played a course because I do not like the type of grass on the green or ground. It maybe that I am not that good of a golfer to benefit from one or the other. On the other hand, I will not play a course if it is not properly maintained!

  13. There's still going to be a reduction in energy transfer from a center strike vs a slightly toed one, but if you're good enough with the putter to be able to control distance and point of contact, then you're already good enough to control distance simply from hitting the center anyway so it seems like this strategy is just adding an additional unnecessary variable. Just make a shorter stroke if the putt may run out too far downhill. I've hit 4' puts with 6-12" weight before, it's really not that hard. It's more a matter of committing to it and trusting that gravity will get the ball to t

  14. What ever method you chose to follow, you have to practice that method. Fast, downhill breaking putts are hard enough without having to adjust to striking the ball in a different position. in Crenshaw’s time, greens were different as were putter heads. If he used a bullseye style putter, the MOI was completely different than today’s Anser or mallet style putters. Today’s putter are designed to resist the twisting of off center hits and reduce the effects. So Crenshaw’s strategy may not work well at all. I think it would be better to keep your same current putting stroke, which works

  15. It wasn’t meant to be a debate as there really isn’t a debate about it. It was just being advised that tour players, including the ones you mentioned didn’t have the video analysis we have today and often describe their ‘feelings’ of how they executed a shot. Feel ain’t real and often they didn’t do at all what they thought they did. I was just mentioning this to say that what they actually did is more important than what they say they did.

  19. If you go to the calculator and put in 31°C (88°F), 75% humidity, 1000hPa (barometric pressure) and altitude of 0 meters the DewPoint Air Temperature is 26 I'm not going to tell you what that means, you'd have to ask the quasi-scientist golfer how he adjusts yardages due to an air density value

  20. It still doesn't explain the values he was saying in the video. ""26" what? It's not kg/m^3 or lb/ft^3. I still this it was 26 Bryson's per Chambeau.

  24. Very true. Great camaraderie on the course, but playing solo and just taking solace in the natural beauty, the colors of the changing trees, the crack of a ball well struck... hard to go wrong either way.

  25. So many responses that resonate with me , but the one about finding yourself alone on the course during twilight is a big one for me, it's just a wonderful peaceful feeling. Another great thing though is that you can always have the joy of competing - whether against friends, in a formal comp, or just against yourself.

  27. I like hybrids so much I purchased a set of Cleveland HB Launchers. YouTube Mark Crossfield's review and you'll see why. All my irons, 4 to Gap are based on a hybrid design. I've played a number of rounds with the new clubs and love them, longer, nice ball flight and most important 'consistent' in length. Most players may not like the look but I get a sense of confidence with them, especially the longer irons.
