  1. I'm looking for some advice on how to go about finding a fitter for a driver? I would like somewhere that has a launch monitor as well as an outside range. I guess I'm wondering if it is better to go to a fitter who only specializes in one manufacturer products. In theory they have a lot of knowledge on those clubs. Or should I go somewhere that has more clubs to try maybe having more options but not as much knowledge on each particular club? Ive only been fit for my edel putter at this point. Any advice or previous experience would be appreciated.
  2. The wife and I went and saw Suicide Squad today. Overall I like it even though the story was a little disjointed. Will Smith was good as Deadshot but Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn stole the show. She's the perfect amount of crazy and beautiful. I thought Jared Leto was a decent Joker even though he wasn't a huge part of the movie. It will be interesting to see how (or if) DC has Justice League and Suicide Squad in a movie together.
  3. Played 18 yesterday morning and continued to struggle with the driver. I looked back on my last few swing videos and i noticed that my shoulder turn was getting sloppy. I also noticed my key 2 isn't great. I did hit a few good ones early on in my round. I feel like I have a tendency to over swing and my sequencing gets off. I will hopefully get a video up this week.
  4. Capitol and lakefront are both Wisconsin brewery's. They are pretty big though so you might see them.
  5. I like that as well. If you can find Capital IPA or any Lakefront Brewery IPA you will be happy The Lake Front Fixed Gear is my favorite but I like the other 3 or 4 they make as well. Oh also if you enjoy bourbon beers Founders makes Backwoods Bastard in limited production (November only if I'm remembering correctly). Its one of my favorite beers.
  6. Im a big fan of Founders products. Im sure you would also enjoy Sierra Nevada Hop Hunter as well as Lagunitas Lucky 13 if you can find it.
  7. Whats the best way to practice on the course? Lets say I go play alone so I can't enter my score. What should I do to get the most out of my practice round?
  8. Mizuno makes such a good looking iron set. I would love to give these a try. They seem like they are a good mix of forgiveness and traditional looks.
  9. I recently put the 4i back in the bag. I was usings 4h and 3h but never seemed to need the 3h. I hit my 4h 10-15 yards longer than my 4i. I like having the 4i for punch shots or keeping it low in the wind. My setup is Driver, 4w, 4h, 4i-gw, 54 & 58 wedges, and edel.
  10. That was awesome seeing Lilly King win gold in the 100 Breaststroke after her comments on the Russian swimmer (Yulia Efimova) testing positive for a banned substance twice and still being able to compete in the olympics.
  11. I recently saw this and I can't wait for November. I loved most of these games when I was a kid. I told my wife she might need a girls weekend away November 11th-13th. https://www.nintendo.com/nes-classic
  12. Played 9 Sunday and Im still hitting my driver is very erratic. I hit 2 off every tee just practicing the course was wide open which was nice. 1st drive on #1 was a pull draw OB, 2nd drive was a nice straight fade. 3rd hole 1st drive was a nice straight draw 2nd was a huge push fade into the H2O. 4th hole 1st a push kinda popped up off the toe 2nd was a nice push fade that started a bit right. 5th huge push fade then a straight pull. 8th a pull draw then a push fade. 9th a push fade then a nice small push draw. Im so happy I purchased my putter its definitely the most constant club in the bag right now.
  13. Still having inconstant results wit the driver. I hit it pretty good on the front 9 today but struggled with it on the back. Shot 40/46 and it was exclusively because of the driver. I hit mostly small straight fades on the front. On 10,11,12,14,17 I hit big block fades. 16 was a small push fade and my 2nd ball on 17 (1st block was OB) was the only pull draw I hit. I hit my irons pretty good and my short game was very good. I just need to get the driver figured out. I feel like its a path issue hopefully I can get a video up this week. I might even have time tomorrow.
  14. Just in case you aren't already working on it make sure you can hit your pitches with your right hand only (assuming your right handed that is). Once I understood and worked on hitting pitches with my right hand only I made huge improvements. I had to take the hitting instinct out of this shot. I will even take practice swings with one hand on the course if I start struggling hitting pitches. You have to commit to this shot to execute it properly IMO. Keep at it I guarantee it will help you in the long run.
  15. Congrats. Its always good to see hard work pay off. Keep it up your an inspiration to us all.
