  1. I have a buddy who would like to introduce his 5 year old to golf this summer. He doesn't play a lot of golf so he needs some help teaching the basics. Are there any courses offering group lessons or clinics in the Philadelphia area that you could recommend for kids? Or any other recommendations for this scenerio would be welcomed as well. Thanks in advance for any responses.
  2. I played Ravsloe last summer for the first time and I would say it was the worst conditioned course I have ever played. I know the summer was tough on courses last year but it was really bad. Half of the greens were mud. It was to bad because the layout was nice. Has anyone played it this year? Have they improved the conditions from last year?
  3. I am playing one of the Gull Lake courses in a couple of weeks. Anyone have any opinions about these golf courses?
  4. I went to the TMPL and was recommended to use a 4w instead of a 3w. I love it and agree that it is so much easier to hit.
  5. Thank you for the link. "Promot hip turn" was the wrong thing to say, but all of the pictures show a straight left leg at impact.
  6. I'm not a teacher but have been taking lessons and I have a couple of the same issues as you that I can see from the "down the line" view. One, you are taking the club alittle to the inside. Two, your club, at the top of your back swing, is aiming right of the target, when it should be aiming at, or slightly left of the target. Some of the things I have been working on are taking the club straighter back and as a result, my hands are higher at the top of the backswing. I now see the club head aiming left of the target at the top of my swing. One more thing, in regards to the "face on" view. Your left leg, at the point of impact, looks like a reversed "C". Try staightening your left leg at impact to promot more of a hip turn instead of a slide.
  7. Usage may not have been the sole reason for the sky rocketing price's but was a factor, just not US consumption. It was China's usage that messed up the supply and demand balance that we had gotten used to for so long.
  8. I hope he won't be playing to much center field. On ESPN radio this morning, they said the TV announcers for the Reds were ripping on him for not being able to cover right field.
  9. What do the sox do with jr? Center field and put Swisher on 1st?
  10. I always play for a little money, even if it's only a $5 nasau, so my game goes through it's usually up and downs with money on the line. This is the first year that I have been playing in tournaments and I have found that I concentrate better during one. I have played some of my best golf this year at tournaments.
  11. Wow! Not only was this a little harsh but you are jumping to conclusions here. Maybe after all necessities are paid for, and everyone in the family can have a little money for recreation. Maybe Soup Fan just wants to figure out what to do with his/her rec money. This post is totally uncalled for.
  12. Was in a 2 man best ball tournament. I missed an easy 4 foot par putt on the first so we were 1 down out the gate. Got up and down from 50 yards to save par on 2 and we were even. Made a great 25 foot up hill birdie putt on 3 to go 1 up. But my shot of the week was on 4. Pulled my drive on a par four and had to chip out. I am now 166 yards to an elevated green with wind blowing left to right, partner is in the water. Green is two teared and pin is on the lower level which is actually the right side of the green. I know that I need to land the ball in the center of the green, where the hill is, in order to stop the ball on the green as it is not very deep. I knock a choked up 7 iron that lands exactly where I invisioned. The ball kicks right and the ball rolls to within 2 feet. Tap in for par to go 2 up. I will remember that shot for some time.
  13. Congratulations. It is my goal to get to a single digit as well. Unfortunately, my handicap has gone up from a 10 to a 10.8. I am playing better though but it is in best ball tournaments so I haven't been entering scores.
  14. I just replaced both but I purchased my putter first. Bought the wedges 4 months later though. So I say, go for both!
  15. For me, I got the most help from the mental process that I go through, leading up to every shot. The mindset that I have now, after reading this book, not only helps me prepare for the next shot but it also helps me forget about my last shot, whether that shot was good or bad. The club throwing exercise is to get you to "feel" what a correct golf shot is like. How do you get to an effective golf swing with this exercise? I think it depends on what your deffect is. If your weight is on your back foot on your follow through, concentrate on what it feels like to have the weight on your front foot when you do the club throwing exercise. Than try to have the same feeling when you take a normal swing. If your problem is with flicking your wrists to much, than try to feel what it's like, not to flick your wrists with the club throwing exercise. Once you have that feel, try to replicate it on a normal swing. What is the issue with your swing that you would like to correct?
