  1. Hey guys. What do you suggest is the best way to reach out to local golfers? I have a charity foundation for children's cancer and a sponsor reached out to me and said that if I have a scramble style golf tourney he will donate a $5,000 cash prize for a closest to the pin prize. Obviously that would create a lot of buzz. I could do $1,250 on each of the par 3s or mix it up. This sponsor is so generous that I think I could do this in multiple states. My question is besides Facebook is there a way to reach out to local golfers? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  2. I'm sure at most the ball was barely rolling up to the guys feel. I think he overreated.
  3. I can't believe this thread is still kicking. Dan will never win the B flight of a Club Championship. Can't believe there is any type of debate about playing on the PGA Tour. The whole thing is so stupid! He's probably about a 7-8 handicap on a real course. I hate when people say he's a 2-3 handicap. There's no way.
  4. I have the PGA and Euro PGA apps on my phone. Noticed this guy shot +1 yesterday. Today he went: Par, Par, Par, Bogey, then an 11 on a par 5, 9 on a par 4, par, double bogey, birdie to shoot 49. Curious to see how he does on the back. Seems like most other people aren't having any trouble.
  5. All I am asking is, when it gets to match play should the 80% be void, or do you think the 80% handicap should continue on to the match play? Qualifying was net (80% handicaps).. top 16 qualified
  6. It's 4 ball 2vs2 To make it easy. Our home course handicaps are: 5, 7, 12, 16 The simple question is do the 3 high players get 100% 2, 7 and 9 strokes or 80% 2, 6, and 7 strokes?
  7. At my course we have a net tourney with 80% handicaps top 16 teams qualify for four ball match play. We qualified and won our first match today. We all play off of the low handicap. The handicaps are 5, 7, 12 and 16. My question is: The higher 3 handicaps. Do they get 80% off of the low ball? Or do you think you should get 100% Thanks for your input.
  8. Been struggling all year with a lazy swing and blocks and fades to the right. Went from a 4.6 all the way up to a 10! I started toying with my swing and remembering to finish high and hold my finish which kinda forces you to make a good swing. I'm back in the 70s and even have my old 5 yard draw back. Psyched to play good golf the rest of the year.
  9. Thanks im going to try this tomorrow. It felt weird at first, but by the end of the lesson and this morning i was hitting the ball much better. I got myself in such a bad habit, that it became permanent.
  10. I took a lesson last night to go over my problems. Right away the pro noticed that I was releasing my hips too soon. At the top of my swing he's trying to me to move my hands instead of already turning my hips. Make sense? Anyone have any drills that'll help with this? Also is it easy to post a video?
  11. Thanks. I'm open to all advice. Golf is so maddening. I can't explain how many times I've said " I finally got this game!" next thing you know i can't do anything right.
  12. I'm going to take a video tonight. I dont currently have one.
  13. Thats actually a really good tip. I'm going to look into that. I dont know exactly. I can just feel my hips wide open and my club stuck way behind.
  14. 1 more thing i should add. This is ONLY with my woods.
  15. My index has went from a 4.6 to a 10.1 in about 5 card changes. I haven't been over a 7 in about 20 years. My last jump went from a 6.8 to a 10.1. I'm noticing that I am having a lot of blocks and fades during my rounds. Some of them are starting right of the fairway and slicing. I'm literally missing the fairway by 50-75 yards. I'll have other holes where I'll stripe it 300 yards center cut. The inconsistency is driving me bonkers. I notice on the fades my body is wide open on contact. Any advice would be appreciated.
