  1. What do you mean "tag" a shot? I used Game Golf again today. I got used to the interface and it was fine. I only wish I could just enter the number of putts. In order to capture yardage of my approach iron, I go to my ball on green and select putter. But, after that, the phone stays in the pocket. After I putt out, I then drag "add putt" a few times to end the hole.
  2. I used this today. It took a little getting used to. At first, to count putts, I had to keep repeating "+", select putter, over and over, for each putt. That seemed idiotic. I wish I could just type the number of putts. I did find the "Add Putt" feature, after you select the putter once. I clicked VIEW to see the yardage before selecting a club.. I hate how you can't easily edit the scorecard. Not the best interface, but it's a step up from Golf Logix since it can track each club length. Thanks.
  3. What's the difference between SIM and M3 ? SIM Max 3 is $250 M3 rescue is $180 Both are 19*
  4. Just walked 18. The pace was perfect. 4 hours to walk. I was worried I would hold people up, but my group was walking, and so were the people behind us. Really worked out well. Being able to walk is a total game changer. 5 mile walk makes it feel like less of a huge waste of time, LOL. Carrying my bag for 18 started to get uncomfortable on my shoulder, and a bit clumsy, so I will invest in a push cart. I like the idea of walking 9 as a way to go for a nice hike.

Carrying my bag for 18 started to get uncomfortable on my shoulder, and a bit clumsy, so I will invest in a push cart. As for the round, it was a good one. I was driving straight most of the day. Possibly the best driver da
  6. Played 9 holes and tried to bring my "smooth tempo" and "no hero shots" mentality to the course. +2 +1 +2 +0 +1 +1 +1 +0 +2 = 46. I was not hitting consistently, but my errors were straight. Good damage control, with my worst holes at +2. Pleased with the result. Smooth tempo makes my misses all good. Thin an iron and it still is on the fairway, etc. I did not hit a single trouble shot (but many layups) Had a nice flop shot with little green to work with. Also had a decent bump/run w/ 8 iron. Expectations are realistic (chip onto green = win) Biggest issue is that I am
  7. +6 after 12 holes? On track for a 79 ? I wish I could play that well once in my lifetime. My goal is to break 90 if I work hard all summer But I have no idea how I can practice short game Where is this section of the website? I would like to get feedback
  8. Is this correct as rules of thumb? Uphill. Ball more forward in stance. Weight on back leg. Add one club length. Aim right (ball goes left) Downhill. Ball more rear in stance. Weight on front leg. Remove one club length. Aim left (ball goes right) Above feet. Choke up. More club. Aim right. Below feet. Choke up. Less club. Aim left.
  9. His average round for 9 holes is 48. Par is 33. So, he is averaging +15. If you take the 10 best of his last 20, average round is 45, which is +12. If you double that for 18 holes, he is around +24
  10. Lesson #3 Wanted to continue the theme of "smooth tempo" and just reinforce reps with lower clubs. Hit a bunch of 5i and 3i, with the same tempo with on 3i and PW. That was a huge mental leap that I never made back in the day. 3 irons, I'm not getting the classic loft, but the balls are going straight. And I am hitting a many pure balls in the sweet spot Mis-hits are also going straight, which is good. I hit driver today and was making clean contact on some balls. Driver was going low, but straight. Some were dead straight. If I am honest with myself, I could n
  11. Lesson #2 Today, I focused on: 1) smooth tempo. As the clubs get lower/longer, I tend to think I need to generate the distance by swinging harder. Today, I swung every club like it was a wedge. Hit the 5i and 3i smooth as butter, and no jerky muscling. I let the clubs to the work, and the result was crisper contact, longer distance, and straighter balls (even when off-center) and 2) keep the wrists not tight. Loose wrist will flip over naturally at contact, but next lesson, I will think about that more explicitly. 3) and start the downswing with the hips. That allows
  12. Lesson #1 Got some fundamentals back into my head. Squared up my address. My natural stance was slightly open. Now, I just close it a bit, and I am square. Keeping club face vertical/closed on takeback. Trying to loosen up and release wrists at contact. Like whip cracking the wrists at contact area. I tried to transfer the "smooth whip, snap the wrist" mindset to the longer clubs. Like most rec hackers, I think I have a tendency to muscle/jerk the long clubs, instead of smoothly letting the club do the work. I think that showed a glimmer of hope, as I hit
