  1. What kind of equipment do we need to have at the bare minimum?
  2. I have been playing on and off for the last maybe 12 years and my handicap fluctuates like the tide. The friends who took up the game later than me now have single digit handicaps. I am so inconsistent, I keep hitting over the top.......just frustrated
  3. I do not mind investing in some gym equipment, I have also been paying for a gym membership even to this day and have not gone to a gym for more than a year due to the pandemic....
  4. Okay will follow them Interesting, I used to go to the gym 3 times a week and one Yoga Session per week and my aches and pains from having a desk job sitting for more than 8 hours and playing gradually went away but now because of the pandemic I practice more but lost the opportunity to go back to the gym because of the threat of catching COVID 19. I appreciate all your comments but I got no idea what the exercises are called and the only things I have at home are a few barbells, stretch bands and that's it. I have weak joints and as I exercise or strengthen one joint another weak link
  5. Can you help me find out what these exercises are and how to do them? is there a website? I am 58 yrs old and I realized exercise helps me avoid injury.
  6. Trying to slow down the effects of aging in my golf game by improving my technique and equipment to its full potential
  7. 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
  8. 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,
  9. 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
  10. 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..
  11. 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
  12. 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:
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Thats a good price I will order one. Should all the clubs have a similar swing weight?
  16. 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
  17. 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.

  19. My driver is a 70 (s) Tour AD my FW is a 60 (s) Tour AD my irons are a 70 (r) Mitsubishi. Is it safe to say that I get a 75 (s) Tour AD for my 4 hybrid? right now it is a 70 (r) Fujikura and it feels heavy
  20. Does it matter where the tape goes? How much is the weight of the tape how much to put in? Sorry newbie here and not much resource on Guam for this kind of things
