  1. Since the pandemic I built myself a net and a nice mat and began hitting balls. I never went to the driving range because my body is sore after and when I go out to play I suck because of the hurt in my body. I am 58 yrs old. Now since the mat and net I have taken a video of my swing and try to correct the faults. Since then my body does not hurt as much and I began to see improvements. I also followed Mobile Clubmaker and fitted the driver myself based on his video. Now I am hitting my driver with much consistency. My weak point now is putting. I am now trying to build my own putting gre
  2. How often and how does one practice at a driving range? do you start everyday with the same clubs? do you hit the clubs that are more troublesome? at an average how many balls do you hit at a driving range per session? All these questions for a 58 year old player. Thanks,
  3. Thanks Billy, I did not get professional lessons and a lot of technology is not available on Guam including a proper fitting. It would be nice to get fitted properly as the body ages so is the need to get the eqpt properly built for the aging body. I have been trying to follow videos on YouTube (Mobile Clubmaker, TXG and Rick Shields)on how to fit myself with my clubs. A few days ago I bought a swing weight scale and some lead tape. I have also been playing around with the head weights on my Titleist driver which is an old one. I used to use my TaylorMade M2 but I cut it shorter and now it is
  4. sorry not too technically inclined it took me a couple of days to figure out how to edit the video so I could get better..
  5. My swing with the FW and my 9 iron Aha when I am the one looking at my swing alone I do not see that it becomes flat, thanks
  6. I've been Playing Golf for: 15 yrs My current handicap index or average score is: 15.6 My typical ball flight is: medium The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice Videos:
  7. Hi Thank you for your input. Exercise has helped me thru the numerous injuries from most likely a bad swing. But as time goes, I learned to exercise the muscles which I had injured just so that I could keep on playing against my doctors advise. I exercise my upper body so I feel less pain on my left shoulder and do Yoga and planks to strengthen my core so I do not re-injure my lower back. Bicycling has also helped to get my legs stronger. When practice putting for an hour my back is shot so is my plantar fasciitis. I would love to know what sort of weight training and exercise regimen is
  8. when I go to the gym and do weight training and gain some muscle on my arms, chest, etc. it somehow affects my golf game and I start using those muscles to swing and basically I start using my arms only and my game sucks. It feels like I loose mobility. Anybody have specific exercises to help my game? that to me is more important than gaining muscle... Thanks
  9. Thats a good price I will order one. Should all the clubs have a similar swing weight?
  10. I most of the time hit my PXG 4H off the toe. I only struggle mostly with this type of club. I have tried a Ping and Titleist hybrid but end up with the same result. I have been forcing myself to use the PXG 4H because out of the rough it should be a better club to hit. I also noticed that the launch angle is very low it takes off like a 3FW. That I am not sure off that because of the limited resources we have on Guam. The shop does replace grips and shafts and that's about it. I had to fly to the Philippines to get fitted for my irons and at that it was not as thorough as the fittings I
  11. is there a way to check swing weight without some expensive machine? lately I shortened my driver and FW for more control now I have been changing the weights. As an example my driver used to have a 14g weight and it felt heavy after a while but I had more control. Then I replaced it with a 6 gram weight it felt comfortable and not heavy but seems like I had less control. Now I have replaced it with a 7g weight which I have not tried on the course. My PXG 4H feels heavy like the driver at the beginning. I also always struggled to hit a hybrid more than an iron.
