  1. Is this what you are referring to! this is the Rife Golf IMO Trainer. I know nothing about it other than it is similar to your description.

  2. I match my tee color to my mood, so they are usually black. I’ve always felt that teeing to high with irons would cause loss of distance by hitting too high on the face.

  3. Wow, if this thread doesn't make you feel a bit better about the world not sure what would. Thank you for sharing your recovery plan @Greg 504 and also a hardy (virtual COVID approved) high five to @StuM for checking in.

  4. Another pretty good video, albeit longer than it needed to be. I will summarize for those that don't have time. Liam recently caddied for a pro EuroTour golfer, and noticed something different about pros teeing their irons up much higher than almost every amateur golfer. He goes through some testing in the video, but it's a small sample size of course. At the end, he calls the pro and asks why he tees it up so high on par threes. Basically it is just to center the ball on the face instead of catching it potentially low on the face. I found all of this quite interesting and may try it

  5. Here’s what I’ve been wearing the last couple of seasons. Usually catch them on sale (especially if I’ve got extra GG or DSG coupons from tracking my walking distance through my Apple Watch). I almost always walk my rounds, and I can walk in these all day. Also, I want a wider toe box area, and these tend to do better than others I’ve tried.

  6. Thanks for your expertise. I only wore compression when I had to do something I knew would aggravate it. I cracked ribs bike racing a couple of times. Sneezing sucked!

  7. All good advice; the compression wrap is ok for temporarily relieving a bad spell of pain, but is nowadays discouraged for continual use as the reduced air passage through the lungs creates an environment where pneumonia can/does occasionally occur.

  9. The course is holding up well pretty well against the Tour so far this week. Have played out here 4 or 5 times now, and it is really cool to see the best players in the world take on your favorite local track. So far the players have been very complementary of the challenge the course is brining to them. They seem to appreciate the undulating green complexes and the run off areas. Doak did a great job here with creating a layout that is playable for me, and decently tough for the very good players. Greens have a lot to do with that. Maybe that will mean next time I am paired with randoms out t

  10. Oh boy, victim # 94,648 today and going through this thread makes me feel at home lol... Like others, creating a new account just to comment here! xD Due to covid, I had to put aside bowling (24 years of it! - I am 36 years old), and Golf is thee perrrrrrrfect sport for these social distance measures!! My dad taught me how to swing a club back in 1995-1996 and I got to borrow some clubs everytime I played - which wasn't much, just for leisure or summers spent in San Francisco or Vancouver. - it was always fun, but I was too busy bowling leagues and tournaments to ever consider buyin

  11. Sounds like we share the same son! Wylie, at 17 (now 22) broke 3 drivers... snapping off the head, in the same fashion. Two were hand-me-downs from me and the 3rd was a demo from a pro shop. Kudos to the pro... he didn't charge us... said he'd return it to the vendor as defective.

  12. The Greek Goddess? I like Trues, but I tend to slip in them more than shoes with spikes. I have an Adidas pair that fit me well and two pairs of Trues.

  13. Feel ain't real, so I'm likely to think that your best bet here is a Member Swing topic. Cupped at the ball can work if you have a strong grip or something else allows it, but generally it's not all that great. Many who are arched at the top will cup on the way down, and vice versa.

  14. Been re-reading the book...last night I was on page 89 where Erik discusses the Gate drill and Double Gate drill. The idea came to me that my grandson's small play football goal would make a perfect gate for hitting the practice balls through. So this morning I got out there with the 4h, the football "gate" goal, some "double gate" tees and a few of the hard foam practice balls. What a perfect visual to work on ball striking and early flight....Later today, I used the same base setup to help my grandson on getting his chip shots with his 9iron flying through the goal...again about 20' out.

  15. STOP BITCHING about how far guys hit the ball! If I have to hear one more golf commentator complain about how far these guys hit the golf ball I'm going to lose my mind! According to the data below the average tournament winner has improved by 5 strokes since 1960. STOP BITCHING about how far guys hit the ball! If you want to get those 5 strokes back, make the rough rougher. Or make the fairway rougher. In the 60's the rolled the greens before every tournament. I watched a thing about them getting Winged Foot ready for the US Open, they rolled the greens more than a do

  16. I'm a big fan of the mute button for golf and football. Sometimes the announcers can get soooo stupid. Last Sunday's Seahawks game was a case in point. As for distance, if there's a problem with length off the tee and scores being too low (and I'm not one who thinks there is) then my solution would be to eliminate the caddies and make the players carry their own clubs, figure out their own landing spots/distances, and line up their own putts without assistance. I'm quite sure that scores would go up.

  17. I really wasn’t sure what my expectations of LSW were. I had heard a decent bit about it, but it almost always seemed to be about shot zones and separation value (incredibly useful things in their own right). However, this book is just chock-full of incredibly useful information not only on how to be a better golfer during my next round but also how to go about building a comprehensive practice plan as well as much more technical wisdom than I had thought. Incredibly good read. My only lamentation is not grabbing it earlier.
