  1. Yep. Just out of principle I won't buy new balls. I'm not good enough to use them.

    Left Arm Pain: From Practicing FULL backswing

    My whole problem in golf has been too short a back swing. I think I was finally getting it LOL. Update : this sucks. I took 2 weeks off of my daily little practice sessions to recover. My arm feels a better but my hitting ability has really suffered. Not as far, not as straight.
  3. I purchase 50 for around $27 or so.
  4. I'm spending roughly 50 cents for "AAA" used balls on eBay. My recent upgrade is to all orange MOJO's. I used to just pick a random assortment but I got tired of everyone asking " what are you playing ?". Also don't have to mark my initials on them anymore. These orange MOJO's are the easiest ball to spot on the range . (Even if it's the wrong range )

    I Quit College Golf

    Interesting post. I hear some mixed messages. Mostly your are frustrated because you can't reach some very high level I think. I'm not sure the coaching was the real issue. I do believe you feel burnt out. The last statement is most interesting. I wonder if the pros feel like they are "having fun". Except for the few at the top of the leader board I bet it feels more like pressure than fun. Maybe playing a fun game and a "career game" (PGA) are two different things? I don't know - just some observations. I appreciate your post and hope you take a break and give it another shot.

    Poor Lucas Glover

    Without any judgement about the family I will guess this: Glover will play a lot better if he attends the next PGA without them all.

    PGA Tour Radio

    I can see turning this on while doing some task around the house. But mostly I think I'd prefer to watch video. I'm using YouTube TV now and it has a really good DVR in the cloud. I can always find something to watch.

    Closed Courses You Formerly Played

    Carmel Highland golf was a nice easy and low cost option. I think it's still sitting there vacant. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/golf/sdut-carmel-highland-closing-golf-2015feb16-story.html

    Left Arm Pain: From Practicing FULL backswing

    Thanks Patch and glad that what's important - playing golf - still gets done. I use "Aleve" which interestingly enough shows up in the Amazon advertisement on the right of my screen right now along with other related products. What do you take ?

    Left Arm Pain: From Practicing FULL backswing

    Your green dot is correct. If you mean during the swing, my arm never stays perfectly straight like the pros. At this point I think it's too hard to tell what bending more would change - I'd feel it either way.
  12. I have a new kind of left arm pain - for a few weeks now. I've been working very hard on a FULL back swing and I think it comes from that because I can feel the pressure/pinch at that point (fully rotated during back swing). It's about halfway between the shoulder and elbow, on the outside of the arm. Oddly it doesn't bother me that much when hitting balls. But later, especially at night, it starts to ache. Anyone else experience this ?

    Driving Range Etiquette Question

    Good choice. And I challenge that you'd appreciate such advice. Really ? Even amateurs can probably spot swing imperfections. I bet I could watch you swing and find something wrong. I bet you'd hate it. Because I'm not pro, and have zero idea how to help you. Well said. I've had this happen. My reaction was that these guys just did to inflate their own ego.
  14. I'll hate to see this course go away. It's one of the few good centrally located courses. https://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/2018/apr/11/Radar-condos-pay-pol/
  15. Exactly what I was thinking. Sometimes I get "magic" from my 56 - and sometimes not. I bet the 60 would feel about the same.
