  1. What'd You Shoot Today?

    I was very proud of myself the other day when I shot a personal best 3 over 39 on my home 9-hole. 4 bogies, a birdie and a balance of pars.
  2. Keeping hips at tush line

    Could someone explain early extension and "the wall"? I've never heard these terms.:-\
  3. Consecutive Birdies

    I've only ever had 2 birdies, and they weren't in a row. I can string the pars together from time to time, though.
  4. I hope this is true. It means +2 or +3 should be right around the corner The way I stunk up my iron shots today suggests otherwise.
  5. What'd You Shoot Today?

    Today was one of those days that make you question if you should bother playing anymore. Last Thursday I went +3 over six holes (it got dark). Today o got to play the whole 18, and shot a 55 on the first 9, and 51 on the second nine. I just couldn't swing the club today to save my life! I'd duck hook one, then slice the next one, then a pull, then a push.... I was chunking them fat so bad I thought I was going to strike oil. I shot a bloody 10 on a par five that I was inches from birdieing the other day.
  6. Putting - looking at the hole, not the ball

    I have fantastic results looking at the hole on lag puts. I don't think hitting a baseball is a good analogy. Golf balls aren't coming at you on an unpredictable path at 90MPH. It's more like shooting a free throw. You don't stare at your hand, you stare at the hoop. I also think it's like throwing darts. I tend to do better if I focus on the target and let my mind and body work out the physics. That being said, I still try to make myself do it conventionally, despite doing it better the other way.
  7. My Swing (Pinseeker81)

    I've been Playing Golf for: Maybe a cumulative year out of the last 20. My current handicap index or average score is: Low to mid 40s over 9. My typical ball flight is: Straight or a fade. The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: At this point, probably the occasional fat shot. Videos: These are a bit old, but a good representation of my swing. I will try to get some more recent ones to post soon.
  8. What'd You Shoot Today?

    I was only able to finish 6 holes cause of night time, but I was +3 after the 6. My best guess is the remaining three would have gone another +2. +1 if I was lucky.
