  3. Practicing putting indoors again today. Two items of interest for those following me: First, I eliminated the 4 foot metal ruler, which as 2 inches wide. See attached picture. I find it too easy to putt it successfully from one end to another. So the challenge is gone. I am only putting off the 3 foot ruler which is 1 inches wide or 50% of the size of the 4 foot ruler. I am not able to putt everyone off the end successfully, so it makes it more challenging...though not too challenging where I want to quit. The goal in performance type practice is to find a situation where you are su

  5. That's where you are wrong. It's always the driver's fault. Even when I putt. Worst ... club ... ever.

  6. I played 845s for 20 years. What an incredible club. I bought a set of AP1s this year to replace them but I still miss the 845s. I doubt I'll ever sell them, great clubs. I am tempted to go back to them at times.

  7. Your second video wasn't too far off. And I think if you thought about it a bit, you could pull it off. It's just about feeling the club face and knowing what conditions you have to make occur around impact (weak = handle pretty far forward, palmar flexed left wrist turned down to the ground, etc.) to hit the ball straight. I think you're taking it more seriously than intended. It's just a challenge, to see if you can hit the ball straight. It's not a drill or an exercise. If I'm working on a drill or exercises for club face control I usually like the old "set up straight, square,

  8. Tried this again last night. I failed. If you want to see the first video of me failing, it's in the spoiler below. I actually hit a perfect one with my second shot with the strong grip. If you watch, make sure you see my hilarious attempts with my weak grip. This one was an attempt at the end of my range session, trying to get the feel for what I need to do better. The strong one was good contact, but it was about a 20 yard hook. The weak one was just high, straight, and short. Better contact though. Now that I'm doing this correctly, it's pretty tough for me. The feels

  9. I think I figured out something about the shanks. Trail arm extends too early from around A6 and towards the ball, putting the heel in play. I was watching a bunch of videos from Tyler Ferrell about the wipe, basically keeping the elbows going in sync w/torso as it rotates, a little across. First wipe, then straighten the arms. I tried this and the towards the heel tendency was mitigated and could purposely hit towards the toe. Will have to wait and see how long this sticks and what happens as more speed as added. Works with the driver pretty good, which is where the heel hits are the mo

  10. Hi. We've got a few members from the Miami Valley here. It's always nice to have another. It wasn't all that long ago that I was a beginner. Starting off with the shorter, easier courses and playing from the forward tees is a good way to go. Then, as you get better, start increasing the challenge. My first year, my buddy fed me to your hometown course, Pipestone. It was brutal. Not sure if it is still open or not, but Rollandia is (or was) a fantastic short course for beginners. @CarlSpackler and I play out at Kittyhawk and we have an executive course, the Falcon, that's at lea

  12. Played Scotch Pines in Payette, Idaho earlier today. (66K, 68/110) Shot an 85, with 34 putts. Pars, and bogie 1s. Missed a couple of makeable putts due to bad reads. Not a bad effort, but certainly not one of my better rounds. Going to blame it on body stiffness....lol. We putt 500 miles on the coach yesterday. We'll be in this area for a few days visiting relatives. This Payette course was a new course for me to play. Pretty nice place. There are two more courses across the river in Oregon, which I will play as needed. They are not new to me. One is a converted farm pasture. Prett

  13. Funny how the "Rory McIlroy is Overrated!" topic has become the Rory Catch-All Topic. And that he's one of the best players to have emerged the last 10 years.

  14. This morning, I sent in a request to GHIN (and my club) to deactivate and delete my account. I will no longer be posting scores for a handicap. I came to the realization this past weekend that scores and handicaps were ruining my enjoyment of the game. I never compete, nor play for money - so my handicap was useless anyway. I also deleted my Golfshot app. Going to go back to the old school method of writing my scores in pencil on a scorecard, then throwing it in the trash after the round. I hope that this will allow me to find joy in the game, as I would like to be able to continue playi

  16. I was just about to post this. BD just a total douchebag. His science is complete OCD BS. His calculations regarding his shots are nonsense and have nothing to do with his outcomes.

    • I would say I'm spotty on this. I approach practice with specific things to work on but ultimately it's random WHAT I'm working on, and totally based on my level frustration from the previous round. I'm definitely not systematic right now. Part of the challenge is I've found it difficult to find instructors that are systematic and methodical.
    • Ah but you must have some really good great shot memories....... My first great shot memory was holing out for a 2 on the 18th hole of the Maxwell Air Force Base golf course. I had been golfing about 3 years and this was the first place I ever took golf lessons. I remember watching the ball land, bounce, and then hop right in the hole. I kept the ball for years...
    • Keep two score cards. On the first score card, record your actual score. On the second card, keep your score for your competition with him. If he shaves two strokes off his score, shave two off yours. Repeat for each hole. and at the end give him your "adjusted" score.  Turnabout is fair play.
    • I’m sure many of you have read about the Game Golf Pro giveaway, and I hope y’all have signed up for it.  If you haven't, take a look at the offer here: If you read all the way to the end of the announcement, you’ve noticed that I’ll also be doing a review of Game Golf Pro. Although I’ll be posting a complete review in the blog page, I wanted to open this thread to keep everyone updated with my impressions as I go through the process. This is also a great place for anyone to ask questions, or to suggest a specific aspect that they’d like to see me evaluate. I can see this proceeding in several stages, and I’ll try to post a little something at each stage. First will be my initial impressions, including the installation of the sensors, and any software set-up I need to do. My package is scheduled to arrive on Wednesday, and I hope to have that set-up done by the weekend, including posting my comments here. Second stage will be what I’d call “data collection”. I’ll be paying attention as I play to the consistency of the capture of each shot, to the accuracy of the GPS, any other factors I notice. I’ll also be checking out the same information on my home computer, I find it much easier to see things on a larger screen. Third will be evaluations of the data analysis done by Game Golf, including shot zones and Strokes Gained analysis. It seems to me that I’ll need to have a reasonable number of rounds before I’ll have enough data to be meaningful, but I’ll be looking at it all along. Last will be a final evaluation, with the big question being whether I believe that the value of the statistics is worth the cost and the effort required to collect the data. So now I wait, a couple of days before I can start my journey with Game Golf Pro. Please feel free to provide comments, questions, advice.
    • Actually playing more, and playing for something.     Not necessarily big money, but something that made me care if I won or lost…
