  1. I am "Seriously" considering the Vizor putter...I currently putt with a Odyssey Metal X #7 and this putter works well for me...but I remember putting with a Vizor in the local Edwin Watts store a while back and I liked the set up and the way it rolled but was not really looking at Wilson Staff at the time...I since have found the Ci11 irons which were truly made for me and my game...so now I am on the hunt to make my bag all Wilson Staff...the most underrated golf company in golf! But shhhhhhhhhh..dont tell anyone as I like it that way!!! Seriously!

  3. When talking about a fade I naturally have always been one who can play a pull fade...yes and when I am not swinging well (timing off) it can turn into a slice...or a dead pull...but if I were to master this swing (meaning can repaet it quite often) why would I not play a pull fade??? I would have to think that with an inside-outside swing if your timing is off as it reates to hitting the ball straight you can hit a push or a push draw...so wat is the difference? Isnt the key to havigna good golf game finding a swing that fits your nataural tendicies and then grooving it to where you can re
  4. Like someone said earlier...get fitted for many reasons but simply lenghtening your clubs will cause the following and you need to be aware of this: 1) For every 1/2 inch it will increase your irons 2-3 swing weights 2) For every 1/2 inch it makes your clubs 1 degree upright So you need to be careful with just adding length as an alternative...just my 2 cents as I am 6'4. My fit is somewhere around 1/4 to 1/2 inch long as compared to standard (what is that any more???) and I am around 1-2 degrees upright...the reason I wrote "around" is becuase it depends on the manufactu
  5. Oh yeah I never gave my average distances...per what's in my bag right now: FW 245 4 iron 192 5 iron 178 6 iron 165 7 iron 151 8 iron 139 9 iron 127 PW 115 UW 100
  6. Agree 100% but for most (per my post right above yours) it could provide realistic gudiance to what players average disctance were...no?
  7. If follwed religously it would help people know their real distances...right???
  8. I hear you on this as I am a feel player (regardless of my post earlier about the "Math"...LOL) but my pre-shot routine is as follows: 1) How far is it to where I want the ball to end up..."Target" (I use a GPS) 2) Is it uphill or downhill 3) What is the wind doing 4) Then based on the knowledge I have about how far I hit each club (math) I make a selection 5) Now with 1-4 done...I go into a feel mode and try to see the shot to the "Target" 6) Then focus on exectuing my swing to the "Target" That is just my pre-shot routine... but unfortuantely in the heat of
  9. BOOM!!! This is very well written and I especially like this part: "What happened to being athletic and putting the club face on the ball? Worry about that first." From my very first swing I have always faded the ball...it is a pull fade (no doubt) as it is a slight over the top move...but for the most part (for some reason...see quote above) I seem to be able to put the club on the ball and know where it is going...I am currently playing to an 8 but have been as low as a 6 and my lowest round ever is a 74 using this swing (shot 2 under on the front 9 and had one
  10. I agree...the same 20 handicap I mentioned above I play with sometimes continues to not udnerstand that golf is not a game of how far you hit the ball or how perfect your swing looks but yet how you SCORE!!! For instance we got paired one day with this young kid who killed the ball off the tee but had a very questionable short game (chipping and putting)...my 20 handicap buddy just marveled all day at this kids tee shots and when we got done and the kid left my buddy looks at me and says man that guy was awesome...he shot a 79...I looked at my buddy and said "yeah nice swi
  11. Yeah it is not easy to do at a busy driving range and could take a lot of time to do on the course itself but how else do you know "really' how far you hit each club...Dave Peltz talks about doing this with your wedges to know your distances for each wedge with a 7 o'clock, 9 o'clock and 11o'clock swings and then write them down so you know how far each club goes with each level of swing...I guess what my original post was trying to say is that before people go off stating that they hit a club a certain distance they should check their math...some of the ones I read on here don't make sense ba
  12. Good point and there are many mitigating factors in each swing but like I said "on the average" but seriously if this guy can barely hit his drives 240 (which it is more like 210-220) how the heck can he average 190 with a 5 iron??? Plus I have him seen him hit his 5 iron on many occassions and maybe one of fifteen went around 180-190...so his average is more like 165-175...but every time he gets to 190 he pulls it out and swings like a mad man...one out of fifteen times is not good enough odds to be successful...I try to talk to him about this but he doesn't want to hear it...like mos
  13. I hope everyone realizes that there is math invovled when it comes to how far you hit your clubs...meaning on the average if someone hits a 7 iron 150yds (on the avg)...then their max drive "carry" (on the avg figuring 45/46 inch driver, etc..) should be around 255 yds...it is math based on club length, club angle and swing speed...it cracks me up when someone says they hit drives 285-300 and they only hit their 7 iron 135 yds...there is no friggin way! Oh yeah one day with a strong wind behind you and in the winter so you got a bunch of roll (or hit the cart path and did not relaize it) you
  14. Okay here is my dilemma...I am currently playing to an 8.8 handicap and last year had it down to a 6. But I have been really struggling with taking my game to the next level...aspire to compete in FSGA Florida State Golf Association tournaments. The reason is my swing…as I have been told over and over by good players and teachers that my short game is very solid. Anyway I basically have two swings and cannot seem to make a commitment to one and my handicap is slowly rising while my confidence is slowly decreasing…the following is a quick explanation about each swing:
