  1. Played with a young guy who hit the ball over 300 yards a few times from the tees and still a 20 handicap His putting was astronomical bad and wasn’t consistent off the tee (some OBs) He had a couple of impressive drives but that was about it.
  2. No "full" shots inside ~150 yards

    Agree There are certain lies and stances though that make it harder for me to do a 1/2 swing so generally good advice but there exceptions for me when I will try to hit extra high PW or 9I full swing inside 140 yards when the lie/stance is difficulty for 1/2 swing Simiarly I have to 1/2 swing a hybrid inside 200 yards when the lie and stance is too difficulty for me to swing fully with an iron The beauty of the hybrid is that with the 1/2 swing the ball stays high and stops I find that if I hit anything higher than an 7iron with a 1/2 swing ball stays low but doesn’t have the backspin to stick on the green. For me
  3. 2017 Presidents Cup Thread

    A rule is a rule. But doesn't change the outcome of the hole. Rules needs to be update and amended to keep the game fair to the players.
  4. I bend over from the hips and with soft arms and play it from there. If im too far away I start feeling I will early extend and my butt moves to far in if Im too close my elbows start touching my chest too comfortably and I start moving my head backwards. It will be a feel thing there probably 2-3 inches that I can adjust for it doesn't have to precise but not 6-7 inches off
  5. Good thread that I reread once in a while. I notice good putters "hold their finish" or have a short follow through I prefer to think of slowing down or coasting rather decel. Though probably means the same Decel seems like I excessive brake whereas slowing down or coasting, I just release the brakes and slow down more naturally
  6. Body vs Arm Swing

    I get confused by the interchanging terms of "release" and "swing" i can get how I can swing my arms but not release the club I can also get releasing my arms and club together with just turning my body but not swinging
  7. Body vs Arm Swing

    When the swing is all arms for me I feel like the rest of my body is just there for alignment It hard for me to develop synch though sometimes I could and when I do then my arms don't really "swing " but" release" with the club as one unit and my body doesn't swing My body turns and my arms and clubs swing in synch When I feel like it's only arms swing with no body turn or pivot then the club doesn't not release naturally with my elbows or wrist The face is generally held off or the at the shaft angle
  8. What are you doing for the total solar eclipse?

    This is my second total solar eclipse I have seen and it was awesome experience just like last time. We drive to Salem Or from Vancouver BC and traffic was not too bad getting there. Leaving immediately and driving out after the eclipse was another story though. Bumper to bumper on I5 almost all the way to Seatle Still well worth it for me .We lucked out on the weather. The skies over Salem was clear blue for eclipse day
  9. Read a few threads about this topic and I really don't understand why it is describe as body vs arms? shouldnt it be arms&body swing vs arms swing? If I just use just my arms ball generally goes shorter The most maybe 60 yards before my rest of my body gets involved The more I get my body involved and synch with my arms the further the ball travels I never been able to move the ball with just a so call "body" swing Maybe a body swing mean arms + rest of the body swing as that makes more sense to me
  10. What are you doing for the total solar eclipse?

    Will be driving across the border from Vancouver BC to Salem Oregan Just hoping the traffic isn't too bad
  11. Here is How to move the hip

    I didn't read all the posts For me I play better when I feel like I'm turning my hips and the lateral hip movement happens after ball impact as a result of a "pulling" feeling from my upper body than purposely shifting my hips laterally I get this feeling primarily from the driver swing With the irons it feels like I'm turning "in a box " My hips do move laterally but not as much as a the driver and I feel more of an upward as well as a lateral pull with my upper body
  12. Ball position for putting

    Overthinking this topic Now for putting I set up the ball on the intended stroke path So whatever feels comfortable though my eye alignment, shaft angle, grip and prior proper green reading are all equally important for me to set up the ball
