  2. Here is that info again. I added the dates to each day. I am thinking we start golfing maybe on Monday the 19th or Tuesday the 20th. Again, I am very open to discussion on all of this. July 18th(Sunday): Travel Day July 19th: Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290 July 20th: Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290 July 21: Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290 July 22: Sentry World ($155) or Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box ($290) July 23: Lawsonia ($120)/Travel Day If you would be doing this on the way out it would be recommended to maybe fly out of Milwaukee.

  6. this isn't a swing post, but given all of my work at this point is pendulum work with putter, I wanted to make update. As posted elsewhere, today I played well (for me) having several nGIR's converted for par as a result of good chips. My putting wasn't stellar, having 2 three-putts, but there was much improvements in the lags. 80 (diff of 9.5) fairways - 10/14 (71%) GIR - 8 (44%) putts - 33 (two three-putts & 5 one-putts) I didn’t leave many lags inside 2ft, but I didn’t leave any outside of 4ft either. Overall solid improvement.

  10. Just bought the videos as a Christmas present to myself. I read the book, but it's been a while. Looking forward to brushing up on the concepts and coming up with a plan for practice over the winter into spring.

  11. Done, and I'm still as certain as I can possibly be. Full clearance from the wife, no work commitments, and within the available budget.

  12. Ah, yes. I recall now one of my clients from years ago explaining the different tees to me. That will certainly be helpful for me to keep pace and have more fun :) I'm sure people who see me doing it will be able to spot soon enough that I am a beginner.

  13. I am also trying to lower wedge flight and bought the Mevo specifically to dial it in and start launching in the low 30s and to get out of the 40s (58* LW) and so far its been really helpful. Last Saturday, I warmed up and pulled the Mevo out for some wedge shots at 70 yards and hit 6/9 of them in the acceptable range (carry and launch). I am not doing anything really different other than being aware of ball flight, taking a 3/4 smooth swing (my feel), and monitoring the results. What I think is happening is I am taking that little hit out of my wedge game and that the ability to monitor the

  14. Main cause could be the pivot (or lack of), arms reacting to the motion of the torso. Depends on the player.

  15. Some people do, and that is truly playing by the rules. The maximum score rules are generally for handicapping, or perhaps a "rule" posted on the scorecard of the particular course you are playing. I typically play every hole to completion in my rounds, but I am a fairly fast golfer. I have scored 10+ on holes that I have played in less than 10 minutes. The whole slow play thing is my main gripe with golfing (especially on weekends). I've got two quotes that I use to describe it: "If you are going to suck, suck fast" "Not all bad golfers are slow golfers, but all slow golfers ar

  16. If at all possible try to find an experienced player to go with you on your first round. There are particular situations that they'll know how to handle that might not be obvious to someone playing the first time even if they have read up on etiquette. I like the general idea of picking up at spots to keep up with the pace of play. The business of counting every stroke is something you'll get to soon enough. For now, developing the swing, having fun and hopefully hitting some shots is the important thing. Even beginners will get at least a few of those balls in the hole, but don't be marr

  17. Please take my advice and start a Member Swing topic, ideally with a video or at least some photos. We can make educated guesses about why but there are many actual primary causes.

  18. Never have, and never will pull any of this stuff on anyone I play against If I can't win, or lose, with my clubs, I have no business playing. I have had some guys say things to me, and it really helps motivate me, but I really think very poorly of guys that try that garbage. I'm much more into sportsmanship than gamesmanship. I really think it has no place in the game.

  19. I had a set of their 52,56,60 degree wedges for a while. There was one thing that they were great for...these are the only clubs that i have ever snapped in frustration. It was so liberating to be free of the Warriors. 😀

  22. Hi all, first post on this site Just like to say these clubs are absolutely outstanding. Great quality, great look and feel, oh yeah I'm talking out my ass I had to start with that, seems to be one thing you hear about warrior golf, either really really over the top applauding there golf gear(99% prob work for/with then) or the ACTUAL people who went for the offer telling you how it is. I was looking into the offer only briefly, then after a quick google found this forum and thread. Wow. If anyone has any sense they would know the best course of action is.... Do not go for it, even the best

    • Good for you, what course are you qualifying at?  Good luck.
    • Considering how many people he comes into contact with and how often he is flying, it is unfortunate but not a total surprise. You can catch Covid-19 again even with being vaccinated and previously infected. It just means that your infection is mild.
    • Or, he understands how it transfers, and he was only around his wife for two months. He didn't need to get tested… because in getting tested, maybe he would have gone out more than he did in isolating at home, perhaps? You are making a LOT of assumptions, as you often do, @Shorty. Cool it.
    • The Club at Lac La Belle - 6.5 I wasn't a big fan of this course. It was beautiful and well-maintained, but I found parts of it to be a little contrived. It's definitely a target golf course and for someone like me who is wild off the tee, it took all the fun of strategizing out of it because the risks were just too high. I did like that there was variety in the course layout with a good mix of short/long, right/left, uphill/downhill holes. I'm not sure I'd make a trip out to this one again if I'm ever back in the area for golf, but it's less than 10 minutes away from a delicious French bakery with the best croissants I have ever had, so that bumps up the score a little  I'd go back just for the croissants. The Sandbox - 7.0 This little 17 hole par 3 course was just fun. It gave you different looks and a variety of options for play. I really liked it and tried a bunch of different things I normally wouldn't have on a regular course. A 7.0 is probably the most I'd give to a par 3 course, though. Lawsonia Links - 7.5 I really enjoyed this course. Overall I found the layout to be good. There were plenty of places to miss, but you still needed to hit good golf shots to play well. I liked the way the mounds and bunkers were designed to play with the shape of the holes visually. There were really only a couple of holes I didn't like - 13 in particular, even though I made par both times using completely different strategies. It's just bordering on too many blind shots for me, though. I'd definitely play this course again if I have the chance. Mammoth Dunes - 8.5 This course was spectacular to look at - absolutely visually stunning. The pictures don't do it justice because they fail to capture the scale of everything. The place is massive. I'll echo what the others have wrote above: it's a journey. You feel like you're not going out to play a round of golf, but rather that you're going on an adventure while hitting a golf ball on the way. I understand now how some other reviews I've read or seen describe a feeling of getting lost, or losing your bearings for a bit. I wasn't thinking about routing. I had no idea where the clubhouse was. I didn't really care about any of it because I was out in this beautiful landscape. The golf itself for me was just there. I would be perfectly happy spending an afternoon just walking the course without playing it. And that's a bit of a detriment, because at the end of the day, it is a golf course. As a golf course, I found it didn't really matter much how you played it as long as you hit decent shots. There was certainly an ideal way to play the course well, and I hit some awful shots and paid the price for them, but plenty of just okay shots I got away with because of the layout. In the end that's fine. I don't need every course I play to be a grueling test of my skills.  I'd make a return trip and play this course again. Sand Valley - 9.0 This one is a golf course first and a spectacular view second. Where Mammoth Dunes focuses on the adventure, Sand Valley focuses on the golf. It's still visually stunning, but just not quite on the grand scale that Mammoth Dunes is. And Sand Valley does not let you forget for even one second that you're out there to do one thing: to play golf. I don't remember having a single shot out there that didn't require my undivided attention. The course absolutely punished you for missing your spots. But the flip side of that coin is that it was extremely rewarding to hit good shots there. An example is #8 mentioned above - I don't think I have ever felt so pleased to hit a GW to 35' before in my life, and I might never again. The course is a challenge in the best way. It makes you want to rise up to face it. I want to go back and battle it again. I shot my best score of the week with an 87 at Lawsonia, but it's the 94 the second time playing Sand Valley that I'm most proud of. Like Mammoth Dunes above, I'd make a return trip specifically to play this course again. Bonus Stuff The facilities at Sand Valley Golf Resort were top notch. The prices at the pro shop were fair. The food and drinks were also reasonably priced and delicious. The food truck at The Sandbox had the best food in the whole complex, IMO. Lac La Belle I felt was fancy but overpriced. I bought a polo at the pro shop at Sand Valley, but a similar shirt at Lac La Belle was like 50% more expensive. The golf carts had beautiful leather seats, but I absolutely hate geo-mapping on the GPS systems. I don't know how many times it slowed me down to tell me not to drive in the fescue even though I was driving parallel to it 20 yards away. Lawsonia had an older clubhouse and it certainly had a quaint feeling to it. That's not a bad thing. I did not look to see the prices they were charging for their merchandise.
    • Every YouTube video should start with a 10- to 45-minute diagnosis to make sure the video you're about to watch applies to you. There are a LOT of reasons why someone hits a slice. YouTube videos do not start with a 45-minute "disclaimer" because nobody would get through it. They just want to stop slicing, but if the video shows a fix for something that the student doesn't do, the video is less than worthless — it may actually cause more damage. Don't watch YouTube videos unless they're just working on some fundamental things, or you're very confident that what they're going to show you actually applies to you.
