  1. I play the Srixon Soft (14 index) and by far the best value around.,.think the're $20/box now (even the new version). They feel pretty darn soft and better (cheaper) than the Titleist Velocity..and I like that green arrow pointer. I think their close to 90 compression..probably why they feel soft.
  2. Cool! Verizon was offering me $130 for it as credit. I was speaking another friend and he said NO WAY..and if I can still download songs/apps then that will be awesome. I'd like to use it as a golf GPS, but that, I heard, requires cellular/wireless serivce..right?
  3. I was thinking that you could still download apps/songs via the wi-fi in the house or wherever that has free wi-fi..no?
  4. Will the iPhone be able to operate as a iPod and gaming device without cellular/wireless service? I am still interested in downloading apps and songs into the iPhone, but will it work without wireless service?
  5. Wow, I bet you get a nice signal with all that metal..no?
  6. Smart move..I cut the cord last year. At first, I was extremely hesitant as I would miss the GC and some other shows. In reality, I really didn't watch either of them on a regular basis. I got rid of my cable (still have internet service though..obviously). I have kids too, 9 and 7, but they weren't into TV also. We have a ROKU player and they get enough entertainment out of that with Netflix. When the golf season kicks off, OTA HD is plenty good, just buy a cheapo HDTV antenna (heck, mine cost $9.95 from Radio Shack) all the main ones are on CBS and I that is free HDTV. It is just as clear as DirecTV or cable too.
  7. I see what you mean..well..the right hip area then..lol
  8. Erik, thank you for the graphics..Yes, what I precisely mean though. If you look at both those swings, the right hip is in line with the ball at impact. I think, as far as feel goes, this is one of the most important aspects to maintain during a round. For me, when I start having problems, my lower body is either trying to pull/rotate too fast. When I make a conscious effort to make my right hip pass through at the same time (roughly) as I make impact, it seems to work really well (for me). The contact with the ball seems perfect. I personally think that "clearing the left side" is very subjective as timing is an issue, just because you clear it what about the rest? If you pass the right hip at impact, technically, your left side should already have "cleared" to be here. I apologize if this topic has been digested on numerous levels, just what "I" try to keep in mind when I play. YMMV
  9. hmm..best way for me to describe it would be that on the downswing, the right hip (righties) should meet the ball at the same time your hands do going through impact..best way for me to describe it. (assuming we're all on the same page with weight already forward and hands ahead of the clubhead) I've heard this is what is called as "firing through" with the hips.
  10. I've noticed, or believe, that when things go awry on the course with getting this and that in tune with the backswing and downswing..etc..for me..if all else fails, just make sure the contact with the ball is the same with the right hip going through..would you guys agee?
  11. ..that fold/collapses when you pull the bag support/handle up..it's the part that would support the golf bag when lying on the golf push cart. It basically collapses like a suitcase would. Can't find it for the life of me..it's a popular brand too..anyone?
  12. For me, the 65g felt great..but just too light..there's no overpowering the 75g. I have lost no distance..just better timing and consistency.
  13. What I really noticed was when I make my shoulder turn it "feels" like a shoulder turn..
  14. Been in a slump lately, but decided to walk (not push cart) with bag on my back..and shot an 88...decided to sell Speed Cart..lol
  15. I've been currently playing a Aldila NV-S 65R on my driver. It always felt kinda "wild" and light. I would have to intentionally try to slow down my swing..which I would then hit it well..but most of the time they were low draws/hooks. I decided to install a heavier shaft (same make) and use a 75R..man..what a difference. It literally feels much better weighted and really keeps my tempo the same. I'm more of a swinger than a hitter, and this increase in shaft weight has really done wonders. Has anyone else seen/witnessed the same or similar?
