    Very good home-run hitting swing on the left. Better golf swing on the right.
  2. Looking for some feedback on my swing. I have been working on it for the past couple of years, and I am finally pretty happy with it. there are still some quirks I would like to fix though. mainly my two killer misses, which are a hook, and the other is a push slice. my usual ball flight is a fairly high slight draw, but sometimes it fades a little bit as well. distance is good, and I'm happy with that. average about 285 with the driver, in the videos I am hitting my 7 iron which usually carries about 175ish. The first two shots with the behind view were both the hook I am talking about. all of the other shots were pretty solid. thanks in advance folks! I've been Playing Golf for: 15 years My current handicap index or average score is: about 10 My typical ball flight is: slight draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slight hook (15ish yards as opposed to my usual 5) and a push slice. those are what kills my game.

    It isn't often that the Lions (my home town side) make it this far into the season undefeated.
  4. dress codes are probably bad for the games appeal, but for myself, I enjoy looking nice and sharp for my round.
  5. Maybe 2020 will be my year to beat @gogolfing 😁 Congrats Scott on another Championship...
  6. Well, this past Thursday I broke 80! Been flirting with 80 for a little while recently, and it finally happened. Been a few years since I've done that. I went back to an old "swing thought" from when I first learned the game, and suddenly found myself hitting the ball on the button! Best ball striking round I've enjoyed this year!
  7. Good playing with you guys. Always nice playing with people who can tolerate you, so big thumbs up to @Bonvivant. Always think we should give @Jeremie Boop something closer to a home game. Maybe one more time this year at Miami Shores, Homestead or Shelby Oaks.
  8. Your ball was off the green, so, did the GUR affect your lie, stance, or area of swing? Or did you merely want to putt through it? No relief. https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=fr&section=rule&rulenum=16&subrulenum=1 If your ball wasn't on the putting green, only bullet points 1 and 2 apply.
  9. "Shallowing the club". I've tried for years to do that whole shallow move you see so many golfers on Youtube do. It ends up making me keep my weight back and getting stuck. I even go to the range 3+ times a week and can't figure it out. In the last two years, I've had 18 in-person lessons with one pro, and my handicap kept going up [despite putting the work in], then I switched coach's and had another 10 in-person lessons, and the handicap is still 20+. I honestly think I was hitting the ball better before any instruction at all.

    There's a reason @david_wedzik and I trademarked the phrase "Golf is Hard"®. https://thesandtrap.com/b/the_numbers_game/angles_of_error Here's a par three that is often a 7- or 8-iron (but can be a 6-iron). A driver on a par five. And another par three that plays from 190-220 yards. In all three cases, you have about +/- 2 or 3° in which to hit your shot, or else we deem the shot "a failure." Set your expectations properly, and give yourselves the credit you deserve when you DO hit a fairway or a green. It's phenomenally difficult!

    • If the tee box is open and the hole is open, we’re going. Your proper position on the golf course is directly behind the group in front of you, not directly in front of the group behind you.  And certainly not in the grill while the group behind you waits on your sorry ass! Why are guests sent out ahead of members?  I’m assuming it’s some kind of daily fee course that also offers a membership option?
    • Unless they're walking to the tee box when I get there, I'd jump them without question. 
    • A simple WITB question for a specific demographic.  I agree with most of your individual sentences, notPM.  Just getting a sense of WITB for similar cappers, with no implied causality or secret agenda.  
    • It's closer to 15% if we control for dynamic loft, because the "pre-set drill" doesn't really let me hit anything longer than about a 6I and get the ball up in the air enough to control landing angle well enough, etc. As I wrote, a good chunk of the distance that would be lost (beyond the 10%) is due to the "more than optimal" amount of lag or shaft lean. There's a difference between one player giving up yardage to another player and giving up yardage to himself. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that if Jim Furyk gave up 10%, he'd plummet down the OWGR pretty quickly. You're continuing to rationalize here, but you're really not saying anything differently now than what has already been said: the JV swing can get someone to a level of "competency" a bit quicker, but it has a lower ceiling.
