  1. You can just download it manually from Microsoft. That's what I did. I will probably dual-boot it on my Mac at some point. I did use the Windows 10 Technical Preview and I definitely liked it better than Windows 8. You can read about how to download Windows 10 on Cnet so you don't have to wait for Microsoft to push the update to your computer. Here's the link: http://www.cnet.com/how-to/jump-the-line-and-get-windows-10-right-now/
  2. Mine is other players not helping me watch my ball from the tee when I help them every time, especially if the sun is shining right at the tee box. And also not repairing divots but mainly ball marks on the green. It's not hard to do. People are just lazy and it annoys the heck out of me. I always try to leave a course in better shape than I found it.
  3. To quote Tiger, "What the hell was that!?"
  4. Sounds similar to my last round. Driver OB on a hole. Retee. Hit driver so low on the face almost blocked by a tree and sea grass from getting to the fairway. Next shot I don't know the distance so I am just trying to layup before the green. Pulled 6-iron and hit kind of a knock down shot and the contact was so pure. About 105 away from the hole now. Pull a gap wedge. Proceed to thin said gap wedge into the pond in front of me while a group trying to let me play through watched. It was a miserable hole that day.
  5. Same here. If I have a cart and no one in front of me, I have no problem playing a round in under 4 hours. What they did sounds quite fun though.
  6. [quote name="Vinsk" url="/t/54238/elbow-position-and-its-effects-on-the-downswing/180#post_993967"]Correction: " I BLADED a PW 150yds uphill"[/quote] Haha you guys read my mind.
  7. From 100 yards and in, if the green allows I mostly always try to attack the pin. My short game isn't what kills my score the most. It's my offline drives and everything else haha.
  8. Also, some people play double par rules. I have played a few times with some buddies where we have done 11 being the highest you can get. After that, it's "shot limit exceeded" like in the Tiger Woods PGA Tour games.
  9. I think this is causing me problems at the moment as I have graphite shafts. My clubs just don't feel as heavy as maybe they should.
  10. Are you bending too much in your knees or putting too much bend in your waist/hips? It sounds like that could be an issue that causes your "arm crunch". Also, being a T-Rex would kind of suck. You can't make a bed, you can't play golf, etc. Lol.
  11. This. That's awesome! I want to check out Nona Blue some day. He seems like a really nice guy.
  12. I would most likely go with the high lob shot.
  13. 150yds is a stock 9 iron shot for me. I once hit one great that went 175-180 yards carry with no roll (winter conditions and no wind either). No idea how or why it went that far as I hit it great but have never it that far before. I had to double check on google maps that the marker was 150yds since I completely flew the green, and sure enough it was.
  14. I entered. I hope I win! I could really use some new equipment!
  15. This is a good post. Feel and mechanics really go hand in hand. I consider myself a feel player, but I have considerable knowledge relating to the physics and mechanics of the golf swing. Therefore, I can analyze my swing (videos) and get into ideal positions since I understand what they are, and then that's where feel kicks in and I feel what it's like to be in that position and swing a certain way. As for my short game with a wedge, that's probably where I am the least mechanical. I experiment to try and hit different shots producing different results that sometimes leave my friends and even myself wondering, "How did he/I do that?". I have videoed some things I have done with a wedge, and the swing and/or grip aren't close to what you'd call mechanical. I love using my 60* wedge and pretty much use it for everything 90 yards and in. One day I was hitting low, knee high, punch-type shots, when practicing chipping, with a lot of spin that would stop pretty quickly. I wasn't trying to do it; my swing that day just produced it. I haven't been able to do it since then. :(
