  1. I will, slow and thousands of reps. Will see if it pays off... Thanks-
  2. To keep working to have more bow on my left wrist, not just at the top of the backswing but on the downsing and prior to impact too. So I think this is definitely my only priority piece at the moment. They said that is going to help my chicken wing too!
  3. I have received my latest evolvr lesson and it looks like I have to focus more on my left wrist bow... Any ideas on how I could improve that??
  4. I understand. It happens to me. But, it is what golf is about. You have to control yourself, relax and don´t get tense. It looks easy, but it is not. In the first tee, I am not doing a lot of things that I do when I am on the range, is something that I am trying to improve. Keep working---!
  5. The best one was the SuperNes.
  6. I want a Super Nes Classic -
  7. It is exactly what i am trying to fix. am improving but I have to be thinking of in order to avoid it. It´s a must, specially with the driver.
  8. I see the main point of this post, I understand completely the feeling of most of the golf teachers out there are not good enough, at least that is my experience. Golf is so technical and so tough to learn (and hence teach) that is really hard to find a great instructor. But... that doesn´t mean all of the golf instructors in the world are the same... no way
  9. I couldn´t agree more. Last time I played the driver wasn´t working until I relaized it was a rhythm problem. Starting counting in my mind 1,2,3, and it worked perfectly. You don´t have to forget your swing mechanics but always keeping the nice and fluid motion. Otherwise, nothing works. 1,2,3.
  10. My 2 cents, and agree with all previous replies: when I swing smooth with my driver it works. And with the irons actually is the same. I was listening yesterday some opinions of pros on how to maximize your distance with the driver, and they all agreed: smooth. And by the way, 250 yards with the drive is great! When I have a teacher that tell me to swing harder, I quit automatically.
  11. Based on maths, there is no doubt: breaking 80 is much much complicated than a round without DB. But, golf is not just maths, and I always have some horrible holes, so a round with no DB is never seen... I will make it though. Both.
  12. Good summary here! by the way, I think the titleist AP2 should be more dificult to play than Taylor RSi2 (the ones I play) And I am thinking that is always better an easier club, no matter your handicap. Golf is hard, and any help is welcome. I have seen great players with a super improvement irons. I lately tend to think this way, because we all have bad days and those days an easier club is more than welcome. But this are just my thoughts. For example, go always with Titleist AP1 instead of AP2... :)
  13. My advice here is: don´t be scare of the driver (as I am). I was always scare of it, and lately I have been working on it, and getting good results, and OMG, the holes are completely different after a nice drive tee shot. Keep working on it, don´t leave it at home. I hated it before, and I am starting to love my driver as work paid off
  14. Hi, here are my thoughts: Lessons specially at the begining are a must. Read some good book, to understand the basics of the golf swing. Don´t try to play on the course until you have a minimun leve Then, go play with friends who are good players and learn, learn, learn.... Good luck!
  15. What putter are you using? I know, the most important thing is you, and not your club,,, but I've changed it recently and (maybe it´s just psychological) I am feeling more confortable, and making more putts. Good aim, good rhythm and there you go. And practice on the carpet too. By the way, you are not saying if you struggle with long or short putts. Are completely diferent stories. And depending on this, I will go for one exercise or another...
  16. I use a watch, easier for use and enough for me (and it´s faster which is important these days when we are trying to avoid horrible 5,5 hours matches). I don´t have level yet to use a range finder... By the way, and I don't want to bother no one, when I see a guy using a range finder, and then hitting an ugly shank, I laugh. It doesn´t make sense in my humble opinion.. I mean, it´s just reserved for really good players. Maybe if I were a single digit player, I would buy one. But again, if you are 30 handicapper, and want a range finder, go for it!
  17. Agree with latest comments, good putting is key, and for the great ball strikers, even more. We always think that our putt is good or not bad and hence don´t spend a lot of time practising it... but, putt is key and always can get better. At least, is what has happened to myself, I am improving it with different exercises and my scorecard is getting better too...
  18. I am very similar to you. Good iron play, but my driver is a different animal. Lately I am improving my driver and I am starting to use it on the course (I was really scared of this club...) and I see a huge difference, the holes are much easier if you hit a good drive, and OMG it´s a confidence builder. So, what I am working on to hit my driver, wide stance, ball to the left foot, don´t move the head forward and don´t get tense, grip it softly... and it´s working. Keep working and you will see improvement! Good luck-
  19. So eager to start watching this awesome event!! Go Rory !!!
  20. I am seeing improvement in my driver, and I am very very happy with this. I have been told to work on my hips turn in the down swing, so at impact they should be facing the target (or almost). This is what I am trying to accomplish now. By the way, I am trying to find some exercises that could be practised during the winter...
