  1. Appreciate both of these posts. I had played in the golf channel am tour a few years back and just recently started thinking I wanted to get back to competing again but then learned golf channel folded. These are both perfect and in my area, (la/Orange County) the tours look like perfect compliments to each other. Similar schedules, but US seems to be more in the fall and Premier is more tournaments coming up in the spring. I may to give them a shot! Thanks guys.

  2. Watching pros is what got me too long I think, I’d watch them then watch where their arms and club stopped in the back swing and tried to feel like I was close to that. when my instructor pointed out my shoulders turned well past theirs, and showed how going that far made it close to impossible to get in sync in my down swing it made slot of sense.....still is hard to feel like I’m hitting a full shot when 50% is a full swing now if that makes sense

  3. Don't really have to. It isn't much better up here. We get at least some snow every winter. Once in awhile we get a a good butt kicking. But it always seems like some people around here have never seen snow before. Not sure what is better, the McGoos driving 5 mph, the nutcases going 85 mph or the breathless TV weather people talking "Snowmageddon" If Mother Nature would like to contain the White Death to the state up north, that's fine with me.

  5. The timing of this post was perfect for me. I watched the video yesterday, and did an iron fitting with my instructor today. Thanks for the content! Points 1-3 were pretty well established through conversations with my instructor during lessons leading up to the fitting, as well as email exchanges. I thought I had narrowed down my choices pretty well, but when I arrived and saw all the heads I requested lined up, I realized there was no way I would have time to sufficiently test all of them. We had another good talk and narrowed it down to four (down from maybe ten). Point 4, I was c

  6. Spent most of last year working on flexibility and increasing my backswing length cause I thought it was short. Started taking lessons in November, just to find out that I was turning to 140 degrees give or take and I’m suppose to stop at~90.......who knew a solid struck ball could fly that far feeling like I’m barely swinging....

  7. Phil... your current backswing length produces multiple sub-par rounds. If you shorten your backswing it had better move you to a +4.

    • I am playing in an inter-club match today. I know I won’t get any sympathy from the Northerners, but it’s 55° with nearly 20 mile an hour winds. That’s freaking cold for us! Hoping that the relatively tough conditions and our home course advantage today will work in my favor…
    • When I lived in PA, I use to golf all winter as long as there were no snow covering the grass.  Ground was frozen solid like a concrete.  One of the grounds keepers said once the ground is frozen solid, and the grass is dormant, it was okay to play.  It is when there is a frost on the grass and the grass has not entered dormant stage that you will damage the green. I am no expert, but that is what I was told by a grounds keeper.
    • When I watch a Pro and slow mo their swing I keep reminding myself they are Professional Athletes I am not.  They can do more with a swing then I can.  So I do worry about what you said, am I getting to long because of watching them Crazy how the ball goes just as far with what one thinks is a 1/2 or 3/4 type swing compared to a full swing.  I just need to trust it more.   Thank you for your response @Dwall4017

    • I voted to long.  Honestly I have no idea if my back swing is to long, just right or to short. I had neck surgery and that did not allow a big back swing for a long time.  I had one Fitter tell me that I had a compact swing but managed to get a lot of efficiency out of it. Then last summer one of the guys I was playing with told me my back swing was getting huge. I watch videos on this site, PGA players swings in slow motion, some videos on line and to be honest I have no idea on how big a back swing should be. This off season I have been doing drills to work on 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 back swings with the realization that what I think those are may very well be much longer.
