  1. Putting Yips cure--worked for me!

    Just found your post and going to give this a try next time on the course. Been using a 38 inch counter balanced putter with pretty good results in holding the putter grip high with the hands. This gets the elbows a little closer to the way you describe it. This might just work. Thanks for sharing!
  2. Not sure where you got the information but the Project A has been alive and well for going on two years. Very interesting though that you mentioned a ball called "Myprerred" golf ball. I don't believe that one has been made but it is very interesting that Snell golf has introduced the Snell "MyTour" golf ball recently, which is highly likely a somewhat improved Project A type ball. You must be prophetic.
  3. After 1984 Jack was already 44 years old. That is kind of invalid point because Tiger isn't even 40 years old yet. Of course the scoring average is going to go down when your over 40. Might be better to see how Tiger's full career goes before trying to do a complete comparison on scoring averages and etc.
  4. Side Saddle Putting - Legal?

    I am checking the side saddle method out, currently using the Long Putter, un-anchored, not too bad a way to go for someone with the yips actually, at least can putt decently with it. The Long Putter is big, clumsy, heavy and cumbersome but it can keep someone playing the game. It appears I can putt almost as well with it anchored as un-anchored. Will check into side saddle too. Evidently no one on tour is too interested in side saddle but it does look kind of deadly for those who get serious with it. I suppose if one of the pros too up side saddle and won a Major with it the USGA would probably try to ban it right quick. Ha Ha.
  5. Right sided swing aka Gary Edwin

    Should be able to generate pretty fast arms speed with this swing. Might not limit your distance much at all as one should be able to generate good speed with this swing. Probably takes less athleticism than doing a lot of movement with the lower body. Of course this isn't the only way to skin a cat, but definitely worth looking into, and I am.
  6. Right. I have tried this tip as well and it too relaxes the hands. It might work better than looking at the hole but I haven't been able to get used to it, will work on it some more though. I also read somewhere that Ben Crenshaw looked out in front of the ball a couple inches or something. Will try it some more on shorter putts to start with.
  7. Over the past several years I have developed a bad case of the putting yips and have tried different grips and putters and etc, mostly with little success. The Long putter was a pretty good alternative but I never got too good with anchoring it. It didn't work to badly un-anchored but wasn't very consistent with it. Out of desperation I have been trying the Look at the Hole or Target method and it is working decently early on, especially on putts out to about 10 or 12 feet so far. Should get a better feel for it with some hours of practice. Not making every short putt of course but making 50% of 5 footers is a lot better than 20 percent or worse. The best thing about looking at the hole is that it relaxed my hands, straightaway, a HUGE plus for someone with the yips.
  8. 5SK Video Thread

    Hopefully these comments aren't far outside the scope of this thread. I recently picked up the Stack and Tilt 2.0 DVD's and found them to be pretty helpful. I have had the 5SK videos for a few months and found that they compliment the Stack and Tilt 2.0 videos pretty well. In some respects I like the 5SK videos better than the Stack and Tilt 2.0, but like both. Really like the way Chuck and Dave progress from the chipping and pitching to the pitches to the full swings. One label of Stack and Tilt that I never agreed with is to be able to hit the ball far enough to play the golf course. I agree with Dave on that and maybe one day the Stack and Tilt creators will change that.
  9. I was B-Fit for Bridgestone B330 RX golf balls. Adam Scott -11 Matt Kuchar -10 Dustin Johnson -9
  10. I will go with Rory and think he will win the Masters next year or the year after. He's got a ton of talent and that high ball flight, great putter,, and he is gaining experience and he knows he is quite capable of winning the Masters. He can be streaky and that could be a problem, but I will go with Rory. If he is on, he could run away with the Masters. He needs to get more consistent and that might improve as he gains more experience and confidence. I think Tiger may have some more majors in him, but they are probably not going to come as easy for him like they did before. Tiger's physical problems are a concern too.
  11. I have struggled big time with the yips for several years and they have returned with a counter-balance putter now so will definitely be re-visiting Look at the Hole/Line method. I have used it in the past and found that one can putt well enough to have fun with putting again. Finding a good putter for this kind of method is pretty crucial, so I am looking for a 35 inch or so putter, and faced balance with plenty of MOI.
  12. Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    +1 Very well said.
  13. Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Tiger has a ways to go to before he is done, and he may win some more majors. His winning percentage is great, but it will most likely drop. No doubt Jack's winning percentage dropped because he played in PGA tournaments and majors until he was what, about 60 years old. Tiger is great, but so is Jack, and it is really hard to believe the lack of respect for Jack from some Tiger fans, many of which are not tour players. 18 majors and a bunch of other PGA tournament wins, are you kidding me? I can guarantee you that Jack's peers have a ton of respect for him, and very deservedly so.
  14. Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    This is a very interesting thread. i put a LOT more weight on what Jack's and Tiger's contemporaries have to say than amatteur golfers in this debate. Would really be interesting to get a vote from all the tour players dating back to Jack's time and before. There are a pretty good number of tour players who say Tiger is the greatest, right now, even though he is 4 short of Jack in the majors, but undoubtedly there are many who say Jack still is. If you strictly go by the number of majors won there can be only one answer at this point but if you weigh in everything than there are a lot of votes for Tiger. As far as I am concerned, if Tiger wins his 18th major he will definitely get my vote. If he doesn't win another one, he probably won't.
