  1. Day Twenty, June 14, 2021 Practice squating the backswing, for 15 or so minutes before work.
  2. I may actually try that. Move up and hit a few more hybrids off the tee to see if it helps. Maybe getting a bigger sample size on the course may give me a better idea of what the shot zone pattern really is. With the irons it’s usually pretty straight may be falling with a little cut. The ZX is hanging on by a thread let’s just say. It may be, I just don’t hit them enough or practice with them enough too. The app I was using, (SwingU) for handicap is not up to date with my course rating, so it thought my handicap was better than I was. So I broke down and paid the $40
  3. My one no-no weekend is July 2, 3, and 4 (Club Championship). Other than that it can be any Saturday in July or August… (unless I decide to do the member-guest August 6, 7, and 8th)
  4. Here’s another swing… probably still standing up too much.
  5. Well I don’t have video of this shot, but I do have video of the resulting putt. So I was playing the short par-5 16th at Genny yesterday. It was a little damp but not Thursday wet… I hit a nice 252 yard drive up the right hand side. I had 220 to the middle and about 227 to the flag. I’m on a slight downhill lie and I hit a 3-wood just focused on weight forward and balance and lone behold I pull it off. Or as Alli would say I would hit a ball with a club. Above is the resulting eagle putt and celebration. Enjoy!

    Why? Probably, in the fall of this year the border opens back up… the Canadian Open will happen in 2022, the Open Championship is happening this year, with fans. I am not a fan of playing Glen Abbey every year though, I like the rotational idea once the border opens back up… I’d like to see them play in the Prairie Provinces, there are some great golf courses in those provinces.
  7. That’s probably the case… could be the case. Even my old Nickent hybrids don’t have as much offset…. It might just be as simple as that. The fitter probably thought I was your generic low-handicap gapping issue.
  8. Yeah which can get a little dodgy in the summer due to tournaments and such, once we have a better idea of the number I’ll call Valley View. Is there others that would be interested? @Carl3?
  9. Probably too far back. Forward of the 5I but back of the 3W if that makes sense. I either dropkick it goes like nowhere. Or it starts 15 yards right and finishes 15 yards left (that may be an exaggeration.) Right after I fix the occasional smother hook with my driver. It could be ball position related. I still have my U85 3 and 4 irons (I traded in the 2-iron). But it could be the idiot swinging the club in this case… I hit 5I on the 5th yesterday because I didn’t want to hit hybrid (I had 210 or so in). And left it short… needless to say I didn’t get up and down for birdie… Alli (m
  10. Day Nineteen, June 13, 2021 Trying to like my hybrids, so I worked and chip length swings to begin with. I hate having the lefts… ugh…
  11. Yes. I was fit. Yes. I hit them first. It wasn’t such hook at GG when I got fit… I got them to keep the whole bag Srixon/Cleveland/XXIO I thought I needed a little more height coming into a firm greens from say 200 yards with a 4H. The fitter recommended the hybrids to bridge the gap between 3w and 5i. It could also be my swing, because I haven’t had a hybrid in the bag since the Exotics CBX (which I loved I sold it to a friend who also loves it)… I still have my U85 3 and 4 irons I could put them back in the bag… Could it be lack of use? Do I need to make mysel
  12. I’ll keep it simple and short... my draw bias ZX hybrids I can’t hit, they just go left. I’m thinking about buying the ZX5 4-iron and trying to figure out 14th club.... At Genny I rarely have to hit either hybrid.... but longer courses I’d be between 3-wood and 5-iron. (The 4-iron is a 6-8 week wait). I usually don’t mind a hybrid (don’t mind hitting the ball high)... I’m looking basically at a few options... It’s not exactly easy to bend the lie of a hybrid but thought about flatten the lie to reduce the hook a bit. Get a Pro model hybrid. Or get a 5 or 7 w
  13. My putting has been kind of shit lately. Thursday: I hit 14 greens in regulation and shot 73. I made 1 birdie all day.. Today: I hit 13 greens and shot a bogey-free 68 with 1 eagle and 1 birdie. In case, you haven’t caught on my home course is a par-71.
  14. Unless they are Crocs, if they rub at the heels they don’t fit? GlobalGolf? That’s where I got my adidas... I find Nike’s run small I have big feet so it’s hard to find golf shoes anyway.
  15. No new birdies today but shot a bogey-free 68, 1 eagle, 1 birdie, and 16 pars.
  16. Day Eighteen, June 12, 2021. Played 18 today. First ever bogey free round. 1 eagle, 1 birdie, and 16 pars, 68.
  17. Calling all CNY/North Country/Mohawk Valley/Capital Region and Southern Tier Sand Trappers This means you @RFKFREAK, @colin007, @Elmer and anyone else that you may know on the site in the area. A Sand Trap outing at Valley View Golf Course in Utica. It is owned by the city of Utica and designed by Robert Trent Jones. It’s about 6600 yards from the tips, and plays to a par of 71. Greens fees are $40 with a cart. We might be able to have lunch or cocktails or a beverage together and shoot the shit... talk about the birdies we didn’t make and the triple bogeys we did make... I
  18. That’s what I thought the name was. So is Torrey Pines... There’s Barker Brook but that’s a little more my way. I’ll see what it says. Besides I have 2 greens fees from my girlfriend’s cousins that I can use somewhere. Ok, for $40 with a cart a Robert Trent Jones course... yes please. I can’t even play Canasawacta 2 miles from me for that. This will probably merge... anyone who is within an hour of Valley View in New Hartford (I’m actually not that far away... maybe an hour)... Roll Call if you’re in this group and interested in an Outing at a Robert Trent Jones Golf Course a
  19. Day Seventeen, June 11, 2021 Putting because putting is a simple motion... After yesterday’s 33 putt round. I grabbed the old yardstick and did the putt down the ruler drill. (I burned so many edges yesterday all my second putts were between 9-24 inches passed)...
  20. I shot 73 today, could’ve shot 63. But you know GOLF. I have NEVER played a round where the 4 major facets all clicked, Driving, Approach, Short Game, Putting. (Not Beer, Wine, Gin and Tonic, and FIREBALL).. the first three were good, IN FACT: I gave myself an A+ on Approach today. 14/18 GIR, 17/18 nGIR, 1 water ball. The driver was pretty good, I hit a couple 251 yard drives that backed up out of their pitch mark. The only birdie I made was a 10 footer for birdie at the par-five 18th. 1 birdie, 1 bogey, 1 double bogey, 15 pars, 37-36=73 4 4 5 4 5 4 4 3 4- 37 4 4 3 3 5 4 5 4 4- 36 73
  21. Which statistic will be most important for someone to win the U.S. Open? Strokes saved/gained tee-to-green: Why? What the hell? Well I don’t know no one else picked it. And ball-striking is important in a U.S. Open. The United States Open is a thorough examination of every part of a golfer’s game. You might wanna bring the Pepto. If I played Torrey at 7685 yards under U.S. Open conditions. I would struggle to break 90... I probably could... but I couldn’t be hitting it in the shit all day. Ball-striking is important. Call the zoo.
  22. I just don’t want to do Turning Stone... if we can find a course within an hour of you guys and me... we can do it... maybe can get ahold of the Syracuse area people and workout maybe a 6-8 person outing. Just good fun.
  23. I guess if I’m going to go to Pinehurst or Mid-Pines, I’ll have to go in the Fall/Winter offseason. 7:15... wanna golf with me at 5:00 am on the Solstice?
  24. By I think if anything happens the players just won’t show up for spring training. If the owners and players don’t want to work out a CBA, the players should just not show up for spring training.
