  1. I don’t have any swing advice to offer (I’m no expert by any means) but there’s a lot to read in the quoted post and paragraphs would help a lot.

  2. These were the cup liners where @NCGolfer sometimes plays golf, and where he used to play a lot of his golf. I thought they were a good blend of not making the hole behave oddly (like a foam noodle that's a bit too tall) and not getting in the way like some of the "ejector" sticks. Also, though, I look forward to the day when we get back to just letting the ball go in the hole, all the way, and getting it out. There seems to be virtually NO data to support the idea that COVID could be spread this way, and if you were still worried about it, rub some hand sanitizer on yourself now and

  3. If you go back to the very first post, @mvmac makes exactly this point, that many of us benefit from turning the feet out because it allows us to turn our hips more freely while remaining centered. The best players in the world are, for the most part, substantially more flexible than the rest of us mortals.

  4. Max hand speed is lower than most people think. 2:30 in.

  5. Do you track your stats? Things like GIR, proximity to the hole, scrambling %, strokes gained putting, etc? If not, I highly suggest doing so, that will quickly identify where your strengths and weaknesses are, I would bet a lot of money that it will take more than you learning how to hit a consistent draw to become a scratch golfer especially since you shoot in the mid 80s - 100+ range right now. And when you draw the ball the same exact thing can happen, especially if there isn't enough spin and the ball dives out of the sky. If you are that concerned with spin rates there ar

  6. I voted "on top of bag" for both, although at times I have placed them on the seat of the cart as I walk to my shot. I used to put them partially in the slot where the club resides. After a round last year, I found my hybrid cover missing and was upset I had lost it. When I got home and was cleaning my gear, I found the cover had fallen into the club hole and had made it's way clear to the bottom of the bag. Had a helluva time getting that bastard out of their fishing around with alignment sticks. Nearly took me 5 beers to get it out. So no, I do not do that anymore.

  7. This is a tough one to talk about if only because this isn't something that's easily measured. I posted this video in the Blast Motion for Putting topic because @boogielicious had posted something about his hand speed. Blast will measure what it thinks your hand speed is, but it doesn't tell you where you reach that peak hand speed, telling you only that it should occur prior to impact. The video above talks about how your hands should be reaching peak speed pretty early in the downswing — essentially between A5 and A6. The Pro achieves it at about here: The amateur gained

  8. I would like to have water jugs on the course before all that. Very tired of having to carry around multiple water bottles every time I play. (To be fair, a lot of places have made the water on the beer cart cheaper, but I’d still like to get water from a jug for once)

  10. The Original is a very good shoe. Not the best in hot weather, as it can get a little sweaty (that's just logical - if you want a waterproof leather shoe). And of the Knits, the original is a very good shoe, too. I see what you mean about the higher back, but it's pretty soft IMO. Do you wear a sock that goes up that high, or is it rubbing skin? I don't like a high back, either, but if I'm being specific I don't like a high back that's more solid or firmer. These are like socks, very "huggy" without digging in or rubbing much. The Knits are some of my favorite shoes. I wear them

  11. Do you play golf with people who say "fa****" when they miss a putt? I hope not. And I get that no-one wants to be a "teacher" out of the classroom, but saying you live in a place where homophobia and acceptance of "hate speech" is the norm is a little concerning. I know exactly what the situation is - kids swear all of the time and it's normalised to the point where they don't even think they're swearing. They don't care and wonder why anyone, let alone a teacher would have an issue with it. But that's not what this is about, and I'm curious as to why you're putting swearing into the sa

  12. I get that, and I'm trying not to come across as if "you are the problem!" or anything like that. Just… I hope it's taken more seriously, and that "it's not going anywhere" isn't prophetic, and that people don't accept that "it's not going anywhere."

  16. There is a difference between “shit” and what JT said. Accepting that it’s ”where we are now” doesn’t help us move forward. My wife is a teacher. It’s not “where we are now” across the country.

  17. Dings don’t add character to your $500 driver. No. They create a distraction or something that screws with alignment 10-14 times per round. And they hurt resale value for frequent traders.

  19. I typically take them off and chuck them into the cart basket until the end of the round and forget about it. I'll certainly agree that fiddling with them mid round is a pain. I've always wondered what most people do and it seems like tucking them neatly into the bag / onto alignment sticks is the move. Thanks for all of the responses. This forum is pretty sweet.

  21. I have a penchant for losing headcovers and towels, so I have learned to be very meticulous when using them. When I use my driver, 3W or hybrid, I take the headcover off, partially stuff it into a hole in the bag so it won't fall out, or fall in, and then replace it immediately after hitting a ball. If I happen to have alignment sticks in my bag, I'll put the headcover over the alignment sticks. I don't have iron headcovers, but if I did, I think I would put them in my pocket when taking a shot. For putter, I take the headcover off and stick it in the side pocket of my bag, whic

  22. My putter head cover never leaves the big pocket on the side of my bag. My driver and 3w head cover go in the cart basket upon first use and stay there. Obsessing about head covers might mean someone spent too much on their clubs. The guys with iron covers crack me up. I picture them sleeping Naked in bed with their clubs every night. If you look at a “What’s in my bag” for a touring pro, most of their clubs look like well-used implements, beat to hell. oh, someone mentioned pace of play. Golfers fiddling with their head covers can get annoying.

  24. And those who continue to downplay it prolong how long it will continue to be used. A friend postulated that the word is much more common in the south. Can't say that's true or not, but it "feels" somewhat accurate. We said it in the early 90s, but even by the time I graduated from HS we knew it wasn't a good word to say at all.

  31. This may be harsh...but I don’t buy the bs run-of-the-mill ‘ that’s not me’ line. Yeah. It is. I think the last time I heard that word used like that was in ‘Breakfast Club’. I say a million choice words on the golf course...and that sure as hell isn’t one of them. Wtf?
