    Are you gaming muscle backs for 7-PW?

    So I just did a review of the MP-18's and my setup is exactly how you were describing...MB's for 7-PW and SC for 4-6. I've been pretty happy with that setup so far. Previously, I had gone with entire setups with the same style and not had too much problems. I do feel that the SC's give me a little more forgiveness that I was looking for. Anything inside the 6 iron I wanted a little better feedback and traditional feeling. I don't know that you could really go wrong either way. I just wanted to try this type of setup once since more and more guys seem to be incorporating a progressive set in their bags.

    Driver Off the Deck

    Never done it. Can’t think of a situation I ever will. I don’t even hit 3W off the deck more than 10 times in a year.

    The TST Member tournament play thread....

    So a friend and I qualified on Monday for the US Final of the Audi Quattro Cup. We now play at Pebble Beach and Spanish Bay in September. Still quite numb about it. We couldn't have played any better. Texas scramble format where we both tee off and play alternate shot from that point to the hole. We only missed one putt inside 10 feet and only had one of our six birdie putts outside 12 feet. Both of us drove it well and only made one bogey...very stress free (until the end when we realized we were probably close to winning.) Get to check Pebble off the bucket list. Basically for free. Crazy.

    Contacts vs Glasses= Better ball striking?

    I had LASIK done four years ago and don't regret it one bit. Like you said, some people have issues with it and they stated to me, going in, that your eyes can revert back to what they were before. My only complaint is that I have a bit of dry eye and have to put drops in every other day or so. When I hit balls for the first time after surgery I couldn't tell that much difference in depth perception or anything else than I did with contacts. I NEVER wore glasses playing golf after I got my contacts...much preferred wearing them vs the glasses.

    Post Your GAME Golf Rounds

    http://www.gamegolf.com/player/ncgolfer101/round/2193204 71. Hit a ton of greens and didn't make any putts. Not at the home course so I struggled a bit on the greens getting the line and pace. Made some good strokes or it at least felt that way. Lots of low-stress pars. Happy how i'm hitting it right now. If I fix the putter I'll be dangerous. Playing in a tournament out there on Monday so I'm hoping the practice round will help.

    My Swing (DeadMan)

    I was actually going to tell you to get closer to the ball but I didn't think you were really too far way...maybe a little. You are exactly right, that will raise the hands a bit if you keep everything else the same. You can also stand up a bit more to change that angle. Keep up the work!

    My Swing (DeadMan)

    @DeadMan, I'd concur with @DaveP043 here. The first thing I'd fix is your setup. Feel like you raise your hands "up" a bit and create much less of an angle with the putter and get the toe on the ground. Take another picture or video and make sure you're closer to what you see below. Eyes don't have to be directly over the ball but should be closer than where you are and you should have much more of a straight line from your elbows to the ball. From personal experience, this will typically fix problems with me pulling the ball/missing left. Not sure if that is what your miss has been or not.

    Time On The Driving Range

    I love this quote...and I'm the same way. I hit balls 3-4 times a week which is a large bucket normally. The range feels very relaxing when things are going well and I can focus on very small things and simplifying swing thoughts. Nothing feels better than a pure iron to me. I might hit a few of those a round but at the range I can try and do it over and over...it's like a drug honestly. The downside to this is that i've developed tennis elbow (right) and have to take precaution not to make it worse. Still, I go out there with no worries and continue to work on my swing as best I can with a specific plan in mind to hit those crisp, pure shots.

    Driving Range Etiquette Question

    I spend a LOT of time on the range. The only rule I apply is...don't speak unless you're spoken to. I don't want to interrupt someone (even if they are struggling.) If someone asks me for advice or help, I'm more than happy to do so...but never unsolicited.

    Golfing on a (very) active volcano

    Volcano Golf Club? I thought it was the Steve Pate Golf Club. 😉

    Y’all ever sneak on to a course?

    Lived near a public muni that you could hop on the third hole. Used to go there all the time to look for balls but also sneak in a handful of holes. I'd sell the golf balls on Sundays in old egg cartons. Memories. 🙂

    2018 The PLAYERS Championship

    Joey seems extremely laid back...like Fred. May have worked for Couples but not sure about Tiger.
