  1. I am working on letting my right elbow release from my body on the way back and getting my left arm more over my right shoulder on the back swing. On the way through I need to clear my body more and try to get swinging more left. I have been workin' hard this winter to implement these changes and I feel good about the swing. The test will be in Florida in a couple of weeks when I get away from this -40 (literally) weather and play some golf.
  2. I must say gang, that I am a little disappointed. I haven't been around in a LONG time and my favorite thread is only at 35 pages. I will take some pics of my updated bag and put them up here. Let's see some more gear!!!!
  3. I would agree. I enjoyed the show and the Harmon legacy was very interesting. I didn't realize that Claude Harmon was a master champ. I am always intrigued at how embarrassed, ashamed, whatever it is Feherty looks when his alcoholism is brought up in interviews. When Harmon brought up that his brother spoke to Feherty when he was having issues, you could see Davids energy change. I really like his show, could do without some of his cameos, and I find his interviews genuine and often provide information that I wasn't aware of.
  4. I really like Luke Donald, he has been one of my favorite players for a while and it's nice to see him finally winning. However I picked Tiger, for the reason that he looked really good at the Chevron and he has had some more time to tinker with his game. I think / hope that the PGA Tour is in for a bit of an awakening in 2012. I predict Tiger get's one major if not two this coming year and at least two other wins and is vaulted back to the top and if not really close.
  5. Joined...should just give me the trophy now...
  6. I completely agree...he has a great swing. How long did it take to get where he's at now (I know you had mentioned that you met him in the summer)? Kids of that age seem to pick up new things so quickly - just curious how long before you started to see major improvement. I love seeing videos of students that make huge improvements. I am a BIG proponent of working on what you learn from the pro...if you don't as you are clearly just wasting your time (and theirs for that matter) if you aren't. There are way too many people that think that they can take a new swing and implement it immediat
  7. Sounds interesting, but I have a funny feeling it's not going to be much better than the show they do with the champions tour. Here's to hoping that it is.
  8. He's a young guy with a lot of money and obviously likes to have a good time...who cares....
  9. You have some pretty good courses in there...even with Bandon Dunes missing. I am somewhat jealous.
  10. What makes you think that you hinge your wrists too early?
  11. I would love for DJ to find his form from a couple of years ago when he made that run at the majors. It's fun to watch him play!!
  12. I spend most of my practice with ball striking - mainly irons and half wedges. The best way to become a better putter is to hit it closer to the hole. I really should work more on the driver as it seems that when I am in the fairway, my scores are usually pretty good...if I am not the sky's the limit.
  13. As you know in golf, just because you beat someone on any given day, week, whatever, doesn't necessarily mean you are a better player. In golf someones success is heavily weighted on the number of majors they have won. I think Yani will have more majors than any other pro golfer (female or male) when her career is done.
  14. How could you not see this happening? She won 11 times this year and at 22 she already has 5 majors. What about this doesn't make you think she that she won't be the greatest ever? I don't think she will get any recognition until she retires.
  15. It would be money well spent if you like the irons. If you don't want to spend the extra cash, then you may be forced to get a new set or different irons as it looks like Callaway is coming out with a new line of irons for 2012 and may charge you to do the changes at their site anyways...they usually won't charge for new sets as they can make them to order. Either way if you want them fitted it looks like you might be paying extra.
  16. Then I think that will strongly depend on what golf retailers are located in your area. You can always buy them online and then have them fitted to your swing.
  17. They may not be in production, however you should still be able to get a set online.
  18. Yeah one of the weirdest things I have ever seen watching golf. You are totally in your own head if you are trying to feel whether the top of your back swing is in the right position during tournament play. I was rather surprised he was able to finally squeak out a win after seeing that swing.
  19. Thanks Michael, Great explanation - I am not a huge follower or even fully understand the snt method (as I haven't done a lot of research on it), but I do agree and like the center pivot idea that you have explained here. I used to try and get my weight over my back foot and transfer it forward and it was not very successful. Since I have started trying to keep my weight centered, I have had a lot more success particularly with my contact with the ball. Thanks again.

  21. I will honestly say if someone wanted to pay me money to put something on my bag or use it, I would probably do it. I hope Tiger plays like he did on Sunday of the President's Cup. Should be interesting to see how he fairs with having to the hit the driver a little more.
  22. I think this is going to be the norm for years to come. I think we will see more of the flash in the pan type guys in Q school more and more. Jason Gore really only had two (maybe even just one) great years and he has been struggling since being riddled with injury. Makes it exciting to watch but it also makes me feel for some of those iconic pros that are back year after year now, like Jansen. There just isn't the room on the tour anymore with all the good young up and coming talent.
  23. Just make sure your are up wind to avoid any Big Lebowski incidences.
