  1. 42-42-84 today. 3 three putts and a bad triple bogey killed me today. On a positive note though, my irons were spot on and my new "power fade" driving is getting better and better!
  2. Thank you sir. Glad to know I'm not the only one to have had this issue.
  3. I play Calloway XR Pro irons and lately I've noticed the ferrules creeping up the shaft. At first it was just my 7 iron but now I've noticed it on multiple clubs. They slide firmly back down the shaft in the club head when I push them down but I'm not sure if they should be moving at all. Is this a normal issue or should I be returning this set? I love the way they feel and play so I'd hate to get rid of them. Would something as simple as epoxy or super glue be a feasible plan to keep them in place? Thanks for answers beforehand!
  4. Well since this post has resurfaced, I read it and found that I have a lot in common with the OP. My half swings are beautiful and contact is crisp with straight ball flight and decent relative distance. I think using that swing and "feel" while slowly working it into a 3/4 then full swing will benefit me.
  5. I know flipping can cause that to happen if you're over closing the club face. I have a late "flip" of my wrist causing me to turn the club head over some as well. When I do make good contact (good timing of a bad habit) I hit higher shots with less distance. I also have a tendency to hit thin a lot out of the bottom 3 grooves. Could be a combo of the 2 issues between swinging down and flipping at impact. Just my $0.02 though haha I'm no pro to get solid advice from
  6. Absolute insanity! The shot that took them into OT was crazy and that shot to win it looked very similar haha Wisconsin had a good run, but in the end, if you ain't a Gator, you're gator bait!!! Elite 8 bound!
  7. I've had the opposite experience with the location in Tampa. Great beer selection including local brewery's brews and great food. The chicken wings even stood out to me as some of the better "bar wings" I've had. The place is uber packed though and it takes a bit to get a spot.
  8. 41-43-84 at Meadowbrook in Gainesville Fl from the blues. A little better than my average round despite winds 15mph+ today. Scrambled well today after multiple tee shots were pull draws into the rough/trees. Finding my groove with my irons though which is really uplifting!
  9. Anyone else still have a their team in the Sweet 16 or already advanced to the Elite 8? I'll be rooting my Gators on tonight against Wisconsin!
  10. This is what I'm talking about for the most part. It explains why I feel more natural when I swing below the plane on the downswing and have better contact. I think it helps me keep my hands ahead of the ball as well on the strike.
  11. So I'm wondering if there is a correlation between the swing plane and your dynamic loft. Just tinkering with my swing, I've noticed the more vertical I become (which is a more "out to in" for me) I lose some distance and feel like it's harder to strike the ball consistently. The more I "flatten" my swing out, the better (more consistent) my ballstriking is with a bit more distance. So my question is, Is this due to a "natural" increase in dynamic loft, or is it just something I've created in my ever changing swing?
  12. x2 If it has no negative effect then I'd say roll with it. If it absolutely bothers you, find a drill for extension and follow through. Be wary though because when you fix things that aren't necessarily broken, you can create new problems.
  13. Are you struggling with inconsistent ball striking at all? When I flip it's usually a thin shot with an occasional fat one.
  14. Not yet but I will be trying it tomorrow. Thank you for the help!
  15. For #1 I put my head against a wall and just focused on mocking my takeaway without moving my head. I placed my Gatorade bottle on the ground as well during some swings and tried to focus on not seeing the front or back of it. On the range I just really kept the thought in my mind and it translated well to my swing. For #2 I got the office chair and focused on pushing it away with my hips. I don't have that half moon squishy ball but I used a hardened foam ball under my right foot to feel it compress during swings. I also placed a tee in front of my ball and focused on trying to push the tee away after contact with the golf ball. I want to keep focusing on 1 & 2 because controlling my low point is something I have a problem with and it's definitely helping! I'll try to correct my camera angles next video session!
  16. Alright so I got some more swing vids. Got a side and frontal this time. I had a very good practice session and had the best contact with my irons that I've had in months. I watched and really focused on Keys 1&2 and it helped tons. The rear view shot came out a little left but felt really good. The frontal view shot flew very straight with similar distance.
  17. Wow... literally changed my swing for the better today. The thought of keeping my right hand on top really paid off (I'm a lefty). I feel like it really helps me keep my hands at a good impact position in the aspect of forward shaft lean. I was having a hard time with thin shots due to weight transfer and flipping my hands. So I watched Key 2 a lot and threw this little thought in and was hitting better than I have in weeks today at the range. Thanks for the tip!
  18. Multiple people have mentioned hitting irons off of a tee. I'm curious how to translate that to hitting off grass? I have a problem hitting thin and although I think that drill could help my contact, I think after removing the tee, it might be hard to adjust to the loss of the height seeing as I'm prone to hit the upper half of the ball anyways.
  19. I think this is what I need to start doing. I have a habit of losing focus during a round and my immediate reaction is panic. The second reaction is, change something! ??‍♂️ Then when I give up, I hit a good shot that gives me hope I fixed something. Slowing down and hitting punches and 3/4 shots may be the key to getting more sound mechanics when I'm struggling.
  20. It is for sure! Nothing I would rather do!
  21. Those dock snook can be frustrating as heck haha on the other hand though, Muskie is on the bucket list of fish I want to catch! Would love to get a big one from the yak!
  22. Fishing is my true passion with golf at a close second. I inshore kayak fish along the nature coast of Florida. Love some snook fishing and redfish fishing!
  23. Unfortunately not yet. Just got some accessories to start getting better video. This was more of a last second attempt when I seen a friend of mine at the range.
  24. I have the same movement. My head moves posteriorly (in anatomical terms) a few inches at impact. Wonder if it is contributing to my thin shots? I just noticed I do this yesterday when I watched some video. I'll probably try the wall technique to try and keep my head in the same position.
  25. I've been Playing Golf for: On and off for 8 years My current handicap index or average score is: 87-92 My typical ball flight is: Driver: High and straight with occasional hook. Iron: Low, Draw. The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Thin iron shots. Videos: Thos thin shot has been haunting me for weeks now. The video was rather last minute and on my iPhone 7. I'll start getting better video and the other angle with my GoPro. My biggest issue for a while now is inconsistent iron contact. I'll hit 1 crisp shot for every 5 thin shots with an occasional fat shot. Something I noticed after watching the video is my head moves backwards at impact a couple inches. I think I'm making a slight flipping move at contact as well trying to get my ball "up." I noticed I had my irons buried in my palm as well so hopefully getting my grip back in my "fingers" will help. Any criticism is welcome! My driver swing feels much more comfortable lately and I've been hitting it well. I don't get a ton of distance because if I swing at full speed, I'll slice it away. As I said above, I'll try to get better quality and different angles but this is a start!
