  1. $280 sounds reasonable, I'm curious what brand it is if you find out.
  2. I'm looking for a cheap electric push cart. Does anyone know much about these? Have any good recommendations. The cheapest one that won't fall apart and can make it up and down steep hills is what I'm looking for. Any information is appreciated, thanks.
  3. The real problem in my opinion is that people don't think about playing quickly as a priority. They think about what club to hit, finding their ball, reading putts, following the rules, etc. First things first, try to play quickly, if you can accomplish that, then you're free to include some other things. The most important thing in golf is pace of play. If that means just picking up, skipping holes, waiting while you let other people play, whatever you have to do to not make other people wait. I don't expect everyone to agree, but that's how I feel.
  4. I'm interested in skytrak and other similar devices (more affordable at home indoor launch monitors). I've been reading about them and watching reviews, and every single one seems to analyze the accuracy of the distance related numbers. I don't care about distance when it comes to these devices, I only care about directional accuracy. I want to know if I'm hitting the ball straight. Are there reviews out there that I haven't found that focus on this aspect of these devices?

    dress code

    Yes, totally OK. I am actually having my wedding soon and I really truly don't care if people show up in bathing suits, pajamas, or whatever they want, as long as they're not naked, which is illegal anyway. If someone is ok wearing something so extreme to my wedding that it would make me uncomfortable, then I probably wouldn't want to be friends with that person or invite them to my wedding. I would not golf with a child and a man wearing that, however, I'm totally fine with him wearing it if that's what he wants to wear. I will just golf with someone else.

    dress code

    I think it's absolutely ridiculous to tell adults how to dress in public. As long as they're not naked, who cares? Wear what you want and let other people wear what they want.
  7. I'm curious what people think about this video. Especially towards the end he says your hands are closing the club face while your body is opening it, is that true? Does this video make sense to people? http://www.golfchannel.com/video/school-golf-simplify-wrists-hanger/
  8. Hi everyone, I am struggling with my grip. One of my biggest problems in golf is I have a tendency to rotate the club face open on the downswing, and I think it may be because of my grip. This first picture is what has generally felt "normal" to me, or what I think of as neutral. Now, when I swing with only my right hand on the club, the face always stays square, and never rotates open on the downswing. So, when I go to the top of my backswing and stop with only my right hand on the club, I'm fairly certain I'm in a proper position, then I put my left hand on without moving my right, and I end up with the following grip. This grip feels super weird and overly strong to me, but it really helps me not rotate the club face open on the downswing (or the backswing). Does this look better? Worse? What's correct? Do some people need different grips depending on their anatomy? Am I doing something else wrong I haven't thought of? By the way, I'm not sure if these will look very different, but they feel vastly different to me. Thanks for the help, Dave
  9. I'm sure this has been discussed many times before. I tried searching the forum but I was unable to find what I was looking for. I have no problem keeping my left arm straight on the backswing. But during the downswing I start to bend my left elbow and keep it bent through impact. I've tried holding a ball between my forearms, practicing a short left arm only swing and keeping it straight (which I'm able to do), and several other drills, but nothing seems to work. Does anybody know of any other drills I haven't tried? Or any advice? I've found a lot of information online about keeping it straight during the backswing, but not much on the downswing.
  10. So I played merion east yesterday. I must say I was pretty underwhelmed. I mean don't get me wrong, I had a lot of fun and it's a nice course, but it didn't feel super special. There are certainly prettier courses in the area in my opinion, and more interesting layouts. To me it felt like just another round of golf. Have other people had a similar experience playing very famous courses?
  11. I don't think it's fair to say foot alignment is important or unimportant. For me, it seems to be very important. My ball almost always seems to go where my feet are aimed. On the range, my feet are always aligned properly, and my ball almost always goes in the general direction of my target. On the course, sometimes I'll hit a ball wildly off target, and often I'll realize afterwards that my feet were aimed right where my crappy shot went.
  12. I'm having a lot of trouble aligning consistently on the course. On the range (and sometimes on the course) I use a club or alignment stick at my feet and everything is totally fine, my ball usually goes roughly where I'm aiming. But without the aid I seem lost. I usually pick a spot in front of the ball, aim the clubhead at that, then try to align my feet perpendicular to the clubhead. But my feet are rarely in line, they're very far off, sometimes to the left, sometimes to the right. Anyone have any tips? Please?
  13. I'm more interested in the non-grip related information in the video. Is that really how the wrists (especially the right wrist) should be hinging?
  14. What's your opinion of this video? Is the information correct, advisable, legitimate? What's your opinion of Herman Williams? Does he know what he's talking about? I don't know anything about him.
  15. I'm not sure about average, but these are when I hit the ball solid. Driver: 250-280 3W: 240 5W: 230 4i: 210 5i: 200 6i: 180 7i: 170 8i: 160 9i: 150 PW: 140 AW: 120 SW: 100 LW: 80
