  1. Couldn't agree with you more...that is what I'm talking about. I have played with some scratch players and most of them play fades or at least have a go to shoot which is usually fade. That being said some can move ball both ways..pretty cool to watch
  2. Break 75 on 18
  3. 40 YDS of Hook..be careful what you wish for..LOL
  4. Yeah that's honest.." I like the way it looks" I know what you mean..You probably see everything right to left..I still do with my tee shots..as I am adapting to left-to-right and playing it predominantly, I noticing that fades are less offensive when i do miss hit one.
  5. Here is what I don't understand.. every time I went for a lesson..like every pro is teaching their students to hit draws..I am yet to see a benefit in that. I think people who start off slicing the ball always desire draw which is like 90% of the beginners, Please don't quote me on that..made up figure. I was one of those when I started off..over the years worked hard on making my stock shot a draw..Now i can't stand it..1. Time consuming to maintain, 2. Some days swing feels great and out of no where it feels like im picking club 1st time in my life...Now after i moved it away from it..I am barely at the range may be a couple of times a month that to work on rythm and alignments and bit of short game..and Im scoring better than i have ever scored..
  6. There is your list..is this argument rested here..
  7. LOL fair enough..IDK i feel like the worst will happen if I mishit one..it will go straight or shorter
  8. I wonder why the pros are moving to fade?
  9. I agree with you that a draw can e as reliable for some. My big miss has been a pull draw with irons and push fades & with my driver for the last 6-7 years and when that happens bad things follow.. as I'm adapting to my new ball flight I'm enjoying the consistency and "NO" swing thought aspect of fades. I feel like can finally play golf now rather than golf mechanics. All my lowest rounds are the proof of that.. IDK I may be completely over my head here
  10. Let's hear your thoughts on it. My view Fade all day Long. Even though I played draw off the tee and approach into the green my whole life never really was able to depend on it. I recently started playing fades and only fades regardless of the situation, gained about 5-7 shots per round. Loss of Distance: 10-12 YDS with my driver, maybe 5ish YDS with irons. but what I gained in accuracy far outweighs the loss of distance IMHO
  11. Buy a 5 WOOD or a 7 WOOD ..for a new player 3 wood (BY FAR THE HARDEST CLUB TO HIT) is a glorious waste of $$....
  12. I have had issue with breaking 90...always 91, 92, 90 then I looked at my round..my short game was the issue, was loosing 5-6 shots a round...mostly PITCHING from 100 yards in and PUTTING..So i picked a par 3 course...worked on my pitching and short game 125 yards in, also must have played that par 3 course 10-15 times to understand my misses and approach...The last 3 rounds I played (18 hole) ..saved 6-7 shots..86, 84, 84..if im 150 yards in the worst I'll do is bogey...coz I have practices all those and I know my misses..so I don't have to chip (may be twice/round) anything and give my self any chance to to make Par or at worse bogey...So I give myself NO CHANCE TO MAKE anything over Bogey...regardless of what other are doing....Its just I know my game..my strengths and weakness..I am not a long hitter..so I accept it and play to my strengths which is pitching it close (Long Par 4s..I dont try to to hit GIR, instead I will lay up 50 yards and from there I know which club to cary 40ish yards and release 10ish yards). so Im waiting to log another 7 rounds (total of 10 rounds before I change my handicap)..coz old habits can creep in very easily...AFTER ALL GOLF IS ALL ABOUT HAVING FUN AND PLAYING TO YOUR STRENGTHS
  13. Its good that Lessons worked great for you..Im quite happy where I am...May need minor adjustment...and thats all care for...I neither have time nor patience for lessons..I figures it out so far...Work on my short game...thats where Im loosing 4-5 shots a round to break 80...I enjoy playing than getting all caught up in mechanics..GOOD LUCK TO ALL
  14. I couldn't agree with you more..on slowing the Tempo..Improves game dramtically...Obviously he would feel like he is swinging 50% but in reality...he would be no where close to less than 70-75%...GOLF LESSONS (MUST) but I have golfing buddies...taking lessons and practicing 3-4 times at the range..sure at the range hit great shot..but at the course fall apart like a deck of cards...I never took lesson..but scoring better..Im going to my first lesson in March..and the only thing Im interested in is to avoid 2 way Miss and how to use hybrid to its full potential..Im very happy with my irons and wedges...7/10 times I would be with in 20 yards off target (150 yards in)..if you have some tips please pass it on.
  15. ALSO..stay away from TRACKMAN for a while develop a feel for distances..you hit with each iron with 50% swing...ANYWAY TILL YOU ARE single digit handicap..NOT ONCE WHILE PLAYING A ROUND SHOULD YOU ATTEMPT A FULL SWING....I know it works..its working for me (Saved 10 strokes in first round, and never looked at a 87 since then on my score card). PLAY A VERY CONSERVATIVE GOLF till you are ready for aggression
