  1. My bag has a separate slot for the putter and the putter sits below the shafts of the other clubs in the bag. I take the cover off before the round and leave it in a bag pocket. I grab my driver or woods and while approaching my shot I pull the head cover off and drop it on the ground near my stance. After the shot I put my head cover back on while approaching my cart. I usually am using a trolley but I do this with a trolley or a cart. It's a patterned habit, I don't forget my head cover. Perhaps on the OCD side of things, but this is driven by pace of play. There are a bunch o
  2. I have a 15 week puppy and was playing tug-a-war with a rope dog toy, he lunged and chomped for a new grip and caught my finger. He still has those sharp pointy little puppy teeth. The cut is a pretty sensitive spot as far as holding a golf club, I don't want to reopen it. Too small for stitches I would think... I imagine an professional athlete (basketball, golf, football) would get it stitched and play on. Here's a pic from yesterday morning (we hit 80 degrees later in the day, San Diego coastal).
  3. I like the sklz ball first trainer for hitting off a mat. Feedback for hitting fat, hitting at the toe, hitting towards the hosel. But they are not making them anymore. My has a crack in it, I think I'll try to make one with that small sheet of polycorbonate. Me too, same problems with my swing. I have corrected it but sometimes regress. For me I focus on steady head through back swing until contact, and shift weight to front foot at the start of the downswing. (Key 1 and 2 of the 5 simple keys). I also sight a spot about an inch in front of the ball as my con
  4. Did the program today in low light shortly after sunset. All my numbers were around 10mph slower than what I normally get. I wonder if it's me or if the Swing Speed Radar doesn't work in low light.
  5. Just my thoughts... The driver is a bit lighter than the red stick but has more wind resistance because of club head size, I think you could just use the driver instead of the red stick, perhaps that would even be better as you're using your actual club.
  6. Yes, that is the problem. You can buy for less than a million, if you get off the coast, but I get your point. But it is less expensive than San Francisco, about the same as Los Angeles. Millions of people make it work. Scripps Ranch is a nice community about 10 miles off the coast, you can find townhomes/condos for around $500,000: https://www.zillow.com/homes/Scripps-Ranch_rb/
  7. I'm using the "Swing Speed Radar" which has me about 8mph slower the the Foresight launch monitor my instructor uses. Doesn't matter though as I'll always be using the same monitor for this exercise. I'm not a great test subject for data purposes as I've worked out my speed before. At 63 years old I wonder if I can expect very much in the ways of gain in speed. At some age one just needs to be happy trying to maintain ones speed/strength/flexibility/agility. My hypothesis, holding all other things equal, the younger you are the more you can expect your speed to increase from these
  8. San Diego or the island of Kauai. You can golf almost everyday. San Diego has reasonable priced golf courses. How about Torrey Pines for $32, resident senior rate. Kauai, not sure about the reasonable priced courses. Hunting, fishing, motorcycle riding... yep, San Diego. You'll have to take a road trip out of the city for the hunting though. San Diego average temperatures, pretty close to room temperature all year, at least midday.
  9. I think of this question in terms of which tee box to play from. If I was using my 3 hybrid more than say 2 or 3 times to a par 4 after a decent drive, I'd play from a more forward tee box. Ideally, if I was a course architect, I'd want you to use a long iron (3 or 4 iron) a couple times for par fours, and have one or two par five holes that you can reach in two with a really good drive and a 3 wood, and the other par five holes are not reachable in two.
  10. About 40 times... About 30 at Torrey pines The rest spread among Vineyard, Balboa Park, Encinitas Ranch.
  11. Just wanted to add... that's a man sized divot in that practice mat. (But seriously, a dog sized divot?)
  12. The MGI Costco cart is a bit counterintuitive for both my wife and me. The forward button is also an accelerator button, a tap will start it off at the speed of "2" a slow walk, two more taps and you're at "4" a fast walk. But, it seems intuitive to hold that forward button down which quickly puts it at the max speed of "9" which could quickly crash it into a tree or a curb or a person etc.
  13. After a heart issue and getting two stents, I'm getting back to golf myself. My wife really wanted me to get an electric push cart instead of using my previous regular push cart. I got the MGI from Costco. I do find the remote distracting but I've only used the cart 3 times. Hopefully with more use I'll get to where I don't have to think about it. What I've done is rent one cart for me and my wife and bring the MGI, we each walk nine. But a nice way for me to ease into it, on the hills I hitch a ride with my wife and we follow the MGI up the hill (driving the MGI with the remote from
