  1. Rory becomes the 2nd player (Tiger Woods is the other) to win multiple Fed Ex Cups with his win at the Tour Championship today. Biggest pay day in golf history ($15 million). 26 professional wins (17 PGA tour).
  2. Long time no talk! But I'm always lurking. Anywho, I'll cut to the chase. I've been improving a lot faster in the last couple years after learning the ball flight laws and just proper form and grip in general. I really don't have a big miss and should be heading toward a single digit handicap when I start recording my rounds more... except ... on occasion, maybe twice or three times a year (in MN that's a lot), I'll get the dreaded I've had them from swinging too much out to in, and from also too much in to out. Unfortunately when I get them it's mostly on the course and not on the range. So what I have to do after the round is head to the driving range and put an object on the other side of my ball and groove that path so I'm hitting the center of the club. Well, it happened to me again last week, got the shanks on the course and imagining an object on the other side of my ball only helped some of the time. So I went home and researched for, cripes, I probably watched videos for 2 hours and came across this (video below). It basically states, set-up with the heel or hosel aimed at the middle of the ball, rather than the middle of the club face. That may get you to re-route your club and body to swing and find the middle of the club face. Well I tried it, and my goodness it worked. For the last three rounds it's been like Angels in the Outfield, the angels have swooped in and saved my swing on every shot. Three excellent rounds, not sure if I've ever hit the ball better. And there lies the question. This is sort of a set-up band-aid right? At what point would I remove this band-aid, or if it continues to work...do I ever remove!?
  3. Fun fact: Rory holds the competitive course record at Royal Portrush with a 61, home of this years Open Championship in July. Great video to watch. Rory-McIlroy-61-at-Royal-Portrush As long as they play golf at Royal Portrush, it is unlikely anyone will go close to matching Rory McIlroy’s 61.
  4. Rory wins the RBC Canadian Open by 7 shots with a 61 in the final round. 25 professional wins, 16 of them being PGA tour wins. Still 4 majors though.
  5. Has it ever gone out? Mine goes out every 15 minutes, then takes 15 to come back. I've tried Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Avast.
  6. Omg, can anyone actually watch the live feed!? Mine won't work.
  7. Happy St. Paddy's Day! 15 PGA tour wins, 24 professional.
  8. Awesome! Thanks! Definitely looking at Cashen now and also looking at the more cost effective course in Enniscrone. We will also be near the Wicklow Mountains at some point in our journey and Druid's Glen looks amazing and I was surprised to see the fee was very reasonable.
  9. I'll be in Ireland in April, I want a course right off the Atlantic Ocean under $100 to play. So far these two fit my list nicely. Has anyone played these two? I want the course with the more Oceanic views. Also if you know of a better one, let me know :) Thanks!
  10. I guess what I should have said was both golfers at an equal spot in their game before the year starts. At the end of the year could be a different scenario.
  11. Two golfers playing off the same single digit handicap, one golfer uses ONLY the driving range and putting/chipping green for one year, one hour a day. The other plays your average golf course for one year, 2 hours a day (so mostly 9 holes) Both meet up and play a brand new course at the end of the year. Who Wins?
  12. I've had severe lower back pain issues for last couple years, may look into getting this table. The one thing that has helped me incredibly is yoga. Yoga by Adriene on YouTube has a ton of good routines specifically for the back. She also has a yoga for golf routine.
  13. I've actually had work on both the neck and lower back done after fairly serious injuries. The only thing that helped put the lower back in place was called the gonstead technique. In my opinion, if you have lower back problems, only go to a chiropractor that is reputable and can do the gonstead. More recently I had a neck issue that was resolved after one normal chiropractor visit by a young, I would almost say inexperienced chiropractor, based off his questions. Why didn't I go back to the gonstead chiropractor? Because she was super expensive and not one cent was covered by insurance, whereas the young dude was. I do not swear by chiropractors, and don't like going but I was in severe pain and willing to try. After reading the article, I'm not sure I'd go back for the neck. Like you said, you're probably safe with the lower back.
