  1. Angel Has Fallen- Gerard Butler looks rugged and tough in all action films, so he appears more believable. In this one, you see he has visibly aged and has suffered for all the physical violence he has been through. But he is able to rise for one more romp to save a President and expose the bad guys in kick ass fashion. This one is probably the last but I enjoyed it as much as the first two. Without spoiling it for any of you, it has some humor injected in it too by a long term aged actor. The reason the franchise has been popular though is Butler. He like Neeson, Stateham, and Stallone look t
  2. Saw him live twice. He did not disappoint anyone. May the former policeman RIP.
  3. Extremely important point in its application and the success that I have had with it.
  4. Arthritis in fingers has forced me to really look at many different grips and sizes. Most charts put me in either standard with extra wraps or midsize.Settled on two that are helpful. Golf Pride cp2 pro standard (thicker than most) and Superstroke comfort grips midsize. Consider comfort and relief more than sizing for each individual being most the important factor.
  5. Breezin' by Doc Powell. Sunday morning smooth jazz on Pandora.
  6. Golf Pride CP2 Pro. Less taper under bottom hand. They feel a little thicker and have a soft feeling but not mushy.Very good if you have arthritic fingers as I do.
  7. Get a hybrid to fit the yardage you need. Much of the difficulty in them, lies in trying to be iron replacements. Sometimes, some of them the 3 hybrid is much longer than the iron it replaces and you are better off getting a 4 hybrid. In my case, after my 3 wood. They also have shafts that make them much lighter than the iron and produce inconsistent yardages with that variable. In my case, after my 3 wood, I needed a club that easily gets 200-210 and takes out a 3 iron when backing off on it. I urge you to look at a Callaway XR16 OS.
  8. Second these. A great grip that is very durable.
  9. Doing the Instructor B thing. I have had one lesson, we addressed issues, she gave me drills to work on. I will see her again next month. As a physical therapist I often prescribe a home exercise program with not too many exercises to do. People will adhere to do more of it when it has less content, otherwise, its too overwhelming and you more often than not drop the whole thing. I feel that way with my own golf instruction. Focus on less, will help me more.
  10. I have about the same the last few seasons, 12-14 handicap. Decided to initiate steps to perhaps improve that in the 2017 season as I am turning 60. Some of the advice that has been suggested to me here that I admittedly did not fully adhere to will now be used. I also am getting hands on instruction ( it has been a long time)and embarking on a stretching routine.
  11. One motion for me was my vote. Seems to work better for me that way too.
  12. I totally agree. When I free up my hips as recommended it allows for a better backswing turn for me and thus improved ball striking and distance.
  13. I have one question. When you flare out your front foot even more does it limit your ability even more to turn in the backswing? You want my hips to turn more .
  14. I see. Feel is not what you think is real in my case. I felt and thought I was turning more. Got more work to do. Thanks, been keeping up with what you proposed and will continue.
