  1. I also find it odd that someone who states they don’t play anymore is telling us how to enjoy the game.

  2. Hit a new max speed today with the blue of 127. Was quite surprised by that because my lower back and legs were pretty stiff and tight from a workout yesterday.

  3. I’m just going to echo the others at this point. The ratings aren’t there, the interest isn’t there, therefore the money isn’t there. The only way I see LPGA Tour events having the same purse has PGA Tour in the near future is if the PGA Tour subsidized them. They’re doing the same “job” but they’re producing different products. The difference in skill matters and that’s partly due to the physical differences between men and women. I’d pay $200 to watch an NHL team play but not a HS one, yet they play the same game.

  4. Maybe it's time to go lefty? Pro employs most bizarre putting stroke you’ll ever see Mark Hubbard, through 35 holes at the American Express, had taken 56 putts with his two hands on the grip of his putter. He took his 57th very differently.

  5. The vagueness of product description is purposeful and thought out by the marketers for sure. “Increased Playability” may mean something completely different to you than it does to me. It’s how the reader interprets it. Either way...whatever emotional attachment or thought I personally have to “increased playability” or how it’s different from you ultimately doesn’t matter. As long as it gets people to buy the product. It’s kind of like psychics and palm readers and all of that. They keep it vague, tell most people the same thing and the customers interpret and apply that to themselves. One t

  8. This simply isn't true. Yes people are expected to defend their positions and back up claims with facts, but just because someone chooses not to back up their opinion doesn't automatically make the other person(s) point of view better. It's not always that black and white.

  9. It's a good forum but little leeway is given. On occasion you'll get challenged or even warned by the moderators. But it's a great place to discuss golf, though you have to defend your positions or accept that others have a better point-of-view. Really good people on here. Stick around, it'll get better.

  10. But this doesn't affect golf at all. LPGA players vote to allow transgender women golfers LPGA players have voted to allow transgender players to compete on tour in response to a lawsuit filed by a California woman who had her sex changed five years ago. That's ten years ago.

  11. I love the "More Pleasing Color Pallette", More pleasing to who? (or is it "to whom?") How do they know what colors I like or do not like. How do they know if I am color blind or not?

  13. After almost a year off from golf in 2019 due to two torn tendons in my elbow this is (possibly) the year of my comeback. 2019 was an expensive year of physical therapists, sports doctors, chiropractors, orthopedic surgeons and various other shamans and witch doctors. I spent all of the wonderful pandemic year of 2020 trying to get my game back to some semblance of its former self. Didn't even bother keeping a handicap... every round was practice. Not sure I'm fully back yet but I'm going give it a shot and begin posting scores again for GHIN as soon as the season opens here

  14. I see people playing multiple balls all the time, especially people who tee off on the earlybird back 9 special at my home course. There's a section of the back 9 where you can loop around the same 4 holes (as long as it is not busy), and get quite a bit of uninterrupted practice. I do both; I play with the intent of scoring well and achieving my goals, and also sometimes if the playing conditions allow, play multiple balls and work on things that I can't practice with my mat/net, like uphill/downhill/sidehill lies, sand shots, hitting out of various types of rough/native area that munici

  15. I get a handful of strange numbers with my radar device too (the blue/greyish sports sensor swing speed radar). I just ignore the obviously bad data. The other day I used the Mevo and SSR simultaneously, and they were pretty close for the most part but occasionally the SSR would be off by 8-10 MPH (both high and low) compared to the Mevo. I treat the Mevo as my reference because I know what I see on Mevo is more or less aligned with GC4 data from my lessons. Certainly would be nice if Flightscope could update firmware to measure swing speed independent of hitting a ball.

  16. I agree with Klineka. Practice rounds especially when alone should be about practice. It also makes being stuck behind multiple foursomes tolerable.

  17. I should drop more in the traps...and 2-3 on the greens 🙄

  18. If the course is empty, I will drop more balls, but usually from different spots like a trap, non-level lies or deep rough, etc. Range practice is where I work on mechanics. But you don’t get odd lies there. I will also on occasion try a different club off the tee with a partial swing. It’s not really a mindset thing for me. I like to play and I like to practice. Empty course doesn’t happen too often though.

  19. Hit balls today...got to 114 and 112 but the mean was around 109. Both are up 2+ MPH from last week. Probably going to hit some more tomorrow (high of 57) and not over-swing and see how it goes. Also might try and get on a trackman next week to compare numbers to another source.

  20. Well, kind of! Take your minds off of Justin Thomas.

  21. Not quite correct. 100% (1 up to 1 horizontal) is 45 degrees, 90 degrees is "infinite" in percent terms. The tangent of 1 degree is 0.0175, so 1.75%. 2 degrees is 3.49%, 3 degrees is 5.2%. Even in those near-horizontal situations, its not linear, and its certainly not 100% correlating to 90 degrees. But no matter the actual correlations, if you're going to learn Aimpoint, and Aimpoint uses degrees of slope, I'd recommend buying a level that reads in percent, especially at 1/3 the cost.

  22. Great question. There has been research on the "quiet eye" concept in Golf and how expert players can lock their eyes on the ball during the stroke. A quote from one article regarding the putting stroke (link below): "Experts compared to novices have longer Quiet Eye duration, so that means they look at the ball for a longer period of time during the preparation for the stroke and during the actual stroke. They don’t move off the back of the ball, and then as they hit the ball, they often keep their gaze there. We find that experts use that technique and novices have a much more scattered eye

  23. I don't do any of them, though I've tried looking at the ball (just the middle I guess). I still employ a bit of what I call a "fuzzy focus." Down at the ball but not at anything specific.

  24. Just about all those silly little phrases beat the heck out of "it's basically the same piece of trash we sold last year".

    • Played Pinehurst #4 today.  Wet fairways, but playable.  39/38, 77.  Struck the ball really well, 12 fairways, 11 GIR’s.  16 putts a side.  No birdies! Had many chances, several inside 8 feet!  I had fun!  My 34th round of the year.  I’m taking tomorrow off!
    • The Taconic Pkwy in NY has some tortuous uphill and downhill turns although not a local street, people are passing each other on a road made for 1930s jalopies (I kid you not, the parkway was built in the 20s). It's incidents like these that make me think I was crazy for passing people at 75 mph on one of these turns. I'm going to take those turns a little slower now.
    • I'm sure it's doable.  If it's not already in effect in some places. My old TomTom informed me of radar traps, being over the speed limit, and red light cameras.
    • Have not gone into this thread except initially and now, so I don't know the content but has anybody wondered if he was on the phone ?  Ima tell you, before I banned myself from phone usage in most situations while driving, talking on the phone was about as distracting as anything;  like blowing thru a stoplight without a clue in the world.
