  1. Golf Swing GSA. A major transformation of my equipment and swing. Totally fixed my driver and driving. Now I never worry about my play club.
  2. I used a kid's shin guard, old credit card and a telescopic fly fishing rod. Costsimilar to yours.
  3. Same problem here. The worst part is the habit will slip back once I stop thinking about 1/2 swing, so it is gotta be the perception of the swing in my sub-conscious mind. The way I fix this problem is telling myself to use the shoulder to propel the club head and limit the left grip effort to only c*cking the club head to level with the shoulder. This usually work for the rest of the day when playing.
  4. When you are tall enough to play basketball, you still need to perform when playing the game. If you can make contact with the ball, you are just tall enough to play. Try to play 3 balls with same club for 3 different types of shot. That is control and perform different tasks, which is what's required when playing.
  5. Better fix your swing before fixing the clubs. It is remotely unlikely to use a stiffer shaft to fix slice.
  6. Welcome to the club! There are a few things I'd summarized from my own learning experience. Firstly, you need to visualize what is lag to you. Most people use wrist cock or angle bwt forearm and shaft. It is also important to visualize that the club head is actually revolving initially on a smaller radius arc and then accelerate to a larger radius arc because of the power applied on it. So if you cannot set the head from small to large radius or in to out path when impact, than basically you are out to in ==> casting/early release. It is also important to understand that once the head is
  7. It is a success only if you can bring it from the range to the course. My wedges have higher swing weights that help to supress the "overpowering". I found them helpful for doing a few practice swings whenever there is waiting time to hit the next shot.
  8. Golf swing is a "long range" precision motion much like "art painting" on walls. What I found most helpful is to maintain smooth ramp up of rotational speed and suitable grip presure so that I feel maximum body and club balance. With that, execution of shot is much more successful. For whatever swing plane, arc, path etc. that suit you, I think you cannot deviate from those principles.
  9. The hosel is at the heel instead of other places so that the head will follow a natually closing path relative to the CG without you doing anything. A club has it real CG hanging in the air much like a boomerang so that you can predict it's natural flight path once you set it in motion. That's why the more you try to manipulate with your hands, the less accurate you will get. BTW, I am working on connecting my right elbow with right hip as a mean of steadying the turn center and allow me to grip lighter in the left hand (i am righty). I seems to have a more stable swing form and gained yar
  10. Yes. I meant once you selected a path, no need to worry about how it closed. It will always be in a circular path. It is just a matter of long or short radius. However, if you snap the face closed or hold tight to leave it open relative to the path, you will have hook or slide.
  11. I thought you don't have to worry about club head path because the face will natually be closing without you doing anything, or whatever you try to do. Except of course you grip it tight and try to manipulate the club. I believe that is the reason they make head offset from the shaft center. This is a dynamic behavior I learnt from other design experience.
  12. Definitely! Would you use a same series putter as your irons? Just like selecting drivers and putters for the day, I have a few sets of wedges to fit my feel and play conditions.
  13. I have seen the new Launcher yesterday. I like the look. Much better than XL/XLS. The price is about $280 here. I don't know how fast they will drop the price given the current economy.
