  1. OK, maybe this is a stupid question, but... Could you not always use a SW and aim halfway between you and the pin? I'm ignoring the cases when you have too little green, of course. But in principle I do not see why this should not work. Instead of aiming for a yard into the green and estimating the ratio to the pin, just pick the 1:1 club and aim half-way. Thoughts?
  2. I started with the Vardon grip and played with it my first few years. I had trouble with squaring the clubface on small pitches and chips. Not having huge hands, I decided to try the interlocking grip. I worked on short pitches in the backyard for two or three weekends then took it to tbe course. It took the better part of the season to get used to it. The key was repetition until I got used to the feeling. It worked well for several months, then i started having clubface trouble again. But it turned out to be alignment, and was easy to fix. My overall perception is that, for me personally,
  3. This sends up red flags to me. I'd be worried about his mental health. This is not normal behavior. This appeared to have been done in anger. If he can't control his emotions, what might happen the next time he gets rejected (or looses his job)? I hope this was an isolated incident from the young man and serves as a wake-up call.
  4. When I first started, i found a series of videos by Pete Styles. He's not on youtube, but it is a good, solid basic swing that he breaks down into the classical positions (address, takeaway, backswing, transition, etc). I've found that going to see a good teacher beats watching a thousand great videos. Unfortunately when you are a beginner, it is difficult to tell good from bad or even mediocre.
  5. Welcome to the site! I`m in Wilmington, NC. You?
  6. Most stat tracking programs let you track penalty strokes. Of course the penalty is addd to the total strokes for that hole. But you would not incorporate the penalty to your putting statistics. For example, say you`re on in two, two putt, but have a penalty. Your score is 5, but your putting stat for the hole is 2.
  7. Yes, nothing different. I use a heat gun to loosen the OEM tape, then a scraper tool. A paper towel soaked in acetone or kerosene helps remove residual bits of tape.
  8. Yes, it really is that easy. You don`t need an alignment jig, just your eyeballs. The solvent takes a long time to dry, giving you plenty of time to adjust the the flat part to where it needs to be.
  9. Off topic, but try the Wilson 50 Elite if cost-effective is important. $13 a dozen. Google them, Lots of positive reviews. And yes, I play them. On topic. My regular partner and I got paired with two lower handicappers at a charity event. We are 30s, they were 10 and 12. Holy Cow, i thought we were slow because we`re not great. These guys took their sweet time, to the tune of almost 6 hours. First time we were not the cause of slow play. Talk about a painful round.
  10. Lets all jump to conclusions and condemn him before any of the facts have even been released. Sounds fair to me. Not.
  11. Wow! Not much else to say. I worked in San Jose for a few months on an assigment, so I knew CA was expensive. I guess I never knew just how expensive. The local hourly shop rate here would buy many days of vehicle work! I`d have made the same choice, get it fixed. Hope it passes! [Edit: i used reman injectors in mine, that was 5 years ago. Still going strong]
  12. [RIGHT]n[/RIGHT][quote name="Hammer 4" url="/t/74869/so-much-for-new-irons-argh-slight-rant#post_996193"] all 8 of my injectors need to be replaced...at 5k. [/quote] I`m just a shade tree mechanic, but $625 per injector seems excessive. I bought a pulled V6 from a junkyard for my gas-powered SUV for $1250, paid a garage $1000 to put it in. Two weeks later, one injector went bad. I replaced all three injectors on the side the bad one was on (you have to disassemble the fuel rail, three injectors per rail, so i did not want to have to do it again in a month. Preventitive maintenance) I did it
  13. Noble goals! I admire your passion. There are a lot of similarly passionate members here. I hope everyone manages to keep an open mind and the flames of passion at a civil level :)
  14. I have had two different instructors and am about to go see a third. The first instructor tried to convince me I needed fitted clubs on my third lessons (shooting 120, mind you. Fitted clubs were not what i needed, and i knew it). The second one watched me hit 5 or 7 balls, adjusted my grip, and then watched me hit balls the remaining 30 minuts without much comment. In my case, less than stellar instructors. Yours is probably a grade above mine, not trying to blame the pro. But you`re spending your free time and disposable income on a voluntary activity, so you should feel free to try another
  15. I know you asked about the grip, and you`re working with a pro who seems to have helped you. But I felt compelled to 2nd what hardballs and joekelly said. I just, in the last two weeks, figured out how to (mostly) keep my arms in synch with my hips. I had the same problem (irons went consistently left), but once I got my hips moving in a better sequence, golf balls went straight. So its worth looking at hips as a potential cause.
