  1. @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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Volcano Golf Club? I thought it was the Steve Pate Golf Club. 😉
  5. http://www.golf.com/tour-news/2018/05/16/crazy-golfers-brave-erupting-volcano-hawaii-sneak-round-photos I might be looking for the next flight out on Expedia.
  6. 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. 🙂
  7. Joey seems extremely laid back...like Fred. May have worked for Couples but not sure about Tiger.

    Golfer Elbow

    I've dealt with tennis elbow (pain on the outside of the elbow) for the past year or so...but it is in the right elbow. I've had to rest it a bit and go through some does of meloxicam/ibuprofen to calm it down. I also wear one of the straps that relieves stress on the tendon when I hit balls. That has helped but it hasn't gone away completely. I need to stretch and ice it a bit more than I do...i haven't been diligent on doing some of the PT work.
  9. One other consideration for me is NFL. I watch an out-of-market team so I'd need Sunday Ticket. if you cut the cord and go to streaming you can't get the online-streaming version unless: You are in an apartment or Your signal is blocked So that answers the question if I should go with DirecTV so I could add Sunday Ticket and stream the games that way. With all the people cutting the cord I'm surprised they aren't using this as a hook. I'm guessing there is some other reason. Leaning Hulu Live right now. I haven't had the Sunday Ticket in years but wanted the option. I'm guessing it will become available at some other time. I could get Game Pass for $50 and just watch the replay.
  10. Playstation Vue. Big and significant enough that DirecTV uses them as a comparison. Don't know of anyone that uses them though.
  11. I'm considering as well. I've looked at the different options and the problem with DirecTV Now is that they put the Golf Channel in the $60/mo "Go Big" package. Can someone confirm that Hulu TV has it included in their $40 Live TV package? It looks like they do. It's more expensive to add on HBO to Hulu ($15 vs $5) but that doesn't make up the difference. Plus Hulu has cloud DVR as well. I'm leaning Hulu Live TV right now and adding another Apple 4k TV. Also wondering if I'm going to have to up my internet package as well to handle the throughput of streaming plus the kids gaming at the same time.
  12. Lee Janzen won the D2 individual national championship in 1986.
  13. I'd put myself at Red or just a bit higher. Carry for driver is around 255-260. For the rest of the chart I'd say I'm longer with the 3-wood, slightly longer with the 4 & 5 irons and about 5-7 yards longer with the 6-PW. Full LW and GW are pretty spot on...shows my gap (20y) between my GW and PW and something I've considered filling.
  14. Current odds: Rory: 10/1 JT: 10/1 Dustin: 23/2 Tiger: 12/1 Spieth: 14/1 Rose: 16/1 Bubba: 16/1 Day: 18/1 Phil: 20/1 Rahm: 20/1 Rickie: 22/1 I thought Bubba would have jumped a bit more. I'd take him over DJ and Tiger for sure right now. Rory, JT and Bubba would be my top 3 as it stands.
  15. If he wins another major he's on the other side of the fence. I'd still like to see around 15 wins as well. Personally, I think he will get there.
  16. Improvement. Two pieces I'm working on is the last one @iacas mentioned with is loading too shallow. I'm trying to set my hands a bit faster on the takeaway. I've always had hands that did not set quickly so it's a bit harder of a change. Also still focusing on not getting across the line as Erik said, working on the first part should help the second. It has but I still feel like I have to work on keeping the club pointing almost left of target (which is what it feels like.) I'm also working on getting my hands a bit more "in" through impact and extending more. I'm not flipping my hands but I could stand to extend them a little more.
  17. I'd echo what @DaveP043 said. The Hickory Tavern is a chain here in NC that is a great, typical bar spot. Never been to the Sly Fox, but I've been to Dugan's Pub which is right in the middle of downtown Pinehurst. Always sat in the basement and had a good time and good food. Might be hard to accommodate 12 there though unless you call ahead. I'd also give a big thumbs up to Etalia.
  18. Stroke play for ours. They have a separate Match Play tournament with both net and gross flights.
  19. I played through a woman playing alone last year...first time I had seen that since, well, I can remember.
  20. Have fun @jsgolfer. My father, brother and I have been putting in for tickets for a while now and my dad won it back in 2009 for a Monday round. I haven't heard of someone winning more than once so I'm sure the Masters did the right thing in putting the rainouts back in for the next year.
  21. Normal temperature/time of year, it would be a 90% PW. It's just out of range for the 52 for me unless I'm trying to stay under the hole or it's middle of summer and the ball is jumping.
  22. Me: <working> Me: <checks TST> Me: <sees Chamblee thread> Me: Mutters "Heads, it's Brandel saying something annoying people. Tails, it's someone saying something about Brandel" Me: <flips coin...heads> Me: <checks thread> Me: "Damn!" Co-worker: "What's wrong?" Me: "Lost a bet with myself" Co-worker: "Doesn't that mean you also won?" Me: "Nope."
