  1. Was going to get a SM micro cart anyway. What's new with the 2012? Looks like the same cart with a little back-pack.
  2. I just got, and I am enjoying reading Zen Putting by Joseph Parent It's more about the mental aspect of golf though Personally I found the following drills a big help 1) 6 balls around the hole about 3 feet away in a big circle knock um in (nice and easy) 2) 6 balls in a line away from the hole about 3 feet apart start at the one closest to the hole (learn to read the green and aim in stages) 3) Start 30 feet away and try and get all the balls in a 3 feet radius of the hole (get the feel of a 2 put) Try doing those with different grips, foot positions, keeping your eyes down after you hit the ball and don't look up to see if it goes in the hole, put with closed eyes or even looking at the hole (never at the ball) and see what feels right for you. I found that a wider stand with locked knees and the new overhand grip with my eyes down even after I hit the ball worked best for me. I also found that I was over-compinsating for a break in the green so I aim more strait at the hole now.
  3. Rustyredcab +1 May have been the best and most concise advice i've seen posted here. I never relized how much I am tring to hit a great golf shot rather than play golf.
  4. I am really close to playing in the 80's but I can't seem to get ride of a couple of horrable holes each round. My putting has improved to two puts, my short game in general has helped out my score a lot more than I thought it could. Drives are OK (used to be better but kind of slicing sometimes last few rounds). Typical round is boggie golf with a few pars and maybe a birdy but I seem to have 2 lost/out of bounds/in the water holes that kill my score. Only thing I can think of is course managment. How do you judge when to get agressive and when to lay up? Anyone have a suggestion for a book or online artical that helped?
  5. Driving 300 yards is nothing... Last weekend I hit a hybrid 400 yards off the fairway. With 200 yard to the hole, I hit a my super power fade but it went and hit a tree next to the green. Than bounced strait back and started bouncing down the cart path. It stopped right next to me. Had to laugh really never seen anything like it. So yea thats 400 yards.
  6. I was really hoping it said "total consciousness"... At lest i'd have that going for me... Which is nice.
  7. I had something like this happen to me 2 weeks ago. I had my putter cut down by 3" and the grip changed out to a FATSO. My short puts are dead on but the look and feel made me uncomfortable and unconfident on long puts. I took an old traditional putter and the new one to a green and spent a good hour alternating between the two. Try it and see what you find.
  8. I got a Nakashima Black Ninja Wedge. It's a really well made golf club and it's top notch but I'd like to know what it says... Anyone know?
  9. I recently had my Odissy White Steel #5 shortened from 35" to 32". This helps me get my eyes over the ball and feel comfortable. Also had the grip changed to a Fatso light. I thought this may cause the club to become lighter so I got some lead tape but have not used it yet. Odd thing is I am killing it on anything inside 7 feet! Unfortunatly I am way off on longer puts, some I leave very short some way past the hole. Untill I figure this out I am considering lugging arround 2 putters. Was thinking about the Snake Eyes SV1 putter. Anyone used that one and have some advice?
  10. That's a nice swing to start out with. I found the one legged drill very helpful when I started and go back to it when I lose my swing... Cheers
  11. That sounds alot like what I am doing. I described it as a "late" hinging motion. The basic advise is if it's not effecting the shot don't worry to much about it.
  12. Hittting the sweet spot on the JPX 800 Pros makes a big differnce. I lost 10 yards when I first got mine but now I am hitting the ball further than I could with other clubs. My JPX Pro PW is a solid 100 yards. Give it a few weeks of practice as I doubt it's the club but they are soft and can be bent easly...
  13. I just got a 20XI Tiger Woods Hat. Him and Charlie Sheen are my idols. I heard they even play golf every once and a while...
  14. Are you still using and liking this watch? Find it accurate on other courses?
  15. OK so maybe come up with a mantra, start drinking heavly and toss stuff... I can do that! The bad break was my ball went just off the fairway into the first cut (or so it looked) Guy I was playing with was walking ahead of me a little deeper in the tree line and saw a ball wedge agenst a tree. Bridgestone RX, I had to waste a swing just getting the ball back towards the fairway. Than hit it about 165 just shy and right of the green. All in all not a bad save considering the ball was in a real bad spot. Figured I can still get up and down for a 5 on a par 4. Grab my putter and wedge and as i'm standing over the ball I see a little blue mark. Pick it up, not my ball... Kept looking back down the fairway thinking nuts I bet mine is sitting up in the light ruff and I could have kept the good mojo going... Just couldn't shake the negitivity of "what might have been"
