  1. This sounds like a fun idea! Thanks for the suggestion.
  2. I am taking a golf trip for a friends bachelor party that includes some non golfers. What are some go to games that you like when in a situation like this to keep things fun for everyone and to keep the pace of play up? This group is two fairly skilled players (single digit handicaps), one mid handicap golfer and two that rarely play.
  3. As far as cheap balls go the top flight gamer line is my go to. Dicks usually has them $30 for 2 dozen. I've played it side by side with a pro v and there is a difference but not enough of one to justify the price discrepancy. My friends give me hell about it but I usually beat them anyway
  4. I don't mind if people listen to music on the golf course. Golf is a leisure activity not a wake
  5. I agree with @Patch. Youtube is best for its intertainment value but it's hard to discredit the instruction completely. My best example right now would be Rick Shiels and Peter Finch. I like their course vlog videos and equipment reviews more than anything, but they both do videos on their practice routines trying to qualify for The Open. Recently they've both talked some about the swing changes they're making and listening to them explain what they're doing makes me think in ways I wouldn't otherwise about what I'm doing in my swing. Its not taking a single drill or something but maybe just learning about the swing from a different perspective that I find the most value in.
  6. Hey @freshmanUTA, I've been in your shoes before and it's not fun at all. It sounds like your doing the best thing you can do already, working with a professional in person. The only other thing I could suggest to your question is to pick up a wedge and work on half swings and making good contact. There's a video @iacas shared with me on my swing thread that illustrates what I'm getting at. The longer the swing the more issues that can arise, in my opinion and just making good contact on short shots can go a long way for getting some confidence back. Just my semi educated take! Good luck! heres the video
  7. Makes sense! Thank you. Is there a reason my body is stalling?
  8. Gotcha. I've used that feel in the past, although with a different goal in mind. Just to clarify, I'm trying to use my body to drive the club through impact and not let the club head overtake my hands and finish with long arms?
  9. Thanks for the advice. Sorry about the less than stellar angles. Everything you said makes a ton of sense. I've noticed that my body stops after impact but never have been able to make it change. I'll put the drill into practice.
  10. Sure thing! I got out to the range Sunday afternoon and tried to get some better video. It's all iPhone unfortunately but that's all I have to work with. Both of these are with a five iron. I hit the ball well that day, but contact was inconsistent at times both thin and fat. I was really working on staying centered and on alignment, as those are the things that consistently sneak up on me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  11. I've been Playing Golf for: 14 years My current handicap index or average score is: 4 hcp My typical ball flight is: straight, slight draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: push fade/ push slice Videos:
  12. I was in a similar situation a few years back. I went with the Callaway X-forged irons. If you look them up they're the 2009 model. Great clubs and helped me go from an 8 or 9 to a 4 hcp. I still see a set on the used rack at GolfSmith from time to time. Definitely worth a shot if you can find them. I play a 21* hybrid in place of the three iron though. I'm not that brave!
  13. I have a pretty mixed bag, but I don't think I have owned enough different clubs to be considered a loyalist to one brand or another. I like to keep an open mind and whatever works best is what I'm going to play, but i do prefer the "classic" looks of Titleist drivers and volkey wedges. Im going to go with what works best, but that's where my eye is drawn first.
  14. Normally a 4 iron but I have a 1 iron in the bag right now on windy days. I hit it well and it rolls forever off the tee. As soon as the grass turns green I'll probably shelve it.
  15. I worked like hell at it. I'm not a natural athlete, and as far as anything with a moving ball is concerned I'm not very good. Golf has been my passion since I was 13 and but I wasn't a single digit until I was in college. My body had finally stopped growing and I was able to grove my swing. What really pushed me over the edge was making consistent contact with the center of the face and improving my game from 50 yards in. Once missing a green isn't as big of a deal the strokes really start to fall off and you don't worry about missing so you miss less. May be a bit of confirmation bias but confidence is key.
