  1. Drop your rear foot back a bit and move the ball 2 inches closer to center (off your front foot) than you normally play it. Then, most important of all , take the same exact swing you normally take with your Driver. No need to close the face, you have already done what is neccesary to draw the ball. Hit it with confidence.
  2. I cant find my original thread discussing this exact situation, but it happened to me as well. I had just started playing 6 years ago, and the guys I played with had all been playing since they were kids. Like you, I tend to really sink my teeth into a sport when I take it up, so naturally I got better at a steady rate. My friends on the other hand never practice, and it showed. The better I got, the more animosity I could feel from them. Finally it got to the point where I could not enjoy a round with them, so I quit playing with them. I started playing in scrambles and local tournaments, meeting better golfers, and now have a whole new set of golf friends who are supportive and helpful with each others game. Keep up your practice routine and habits, your game will soon overtake his. Won't that be sweet!!!!
  3. I have suffered from sciata for years, never had the chance to try an inversion table out, but I think I am going to look for one now. That is some of the worst pain in the world, puts me completely out of commission, even though it only hits me every 6-7 weeks.
  4. Correction, you wasted your own time by first reading the entire post, all the replies, and then thinking you had to reply with your negative perception. The fault is your own. It's a message board where many topics are discussed, if one doesn't agree with you, simply pass it by.
  5. If he put you through the fitting steps, and recommended a regular flex, then I would take his advice. I prefer a stiff shaft, as does JGulk, but our swings are probably a lot more consistent than yours, no offense, just noting your handicap. I would follow the pro's advice, and start with the setup he recommended. Then progress from there.
  6. Ditto here, never had a problem going between the two. I don't even understand how they would affect each other. Over half of MLB players play golf in their spare time. Everyone is different though.
  7. I'm in the market for a new driver, and am looking for the best workability in one. I currently have a Taylormade Tour Burner 9*, and an Adams Redline RPM 10*5. You can't beat the Adams for distance, I have hit some absolute bombs with it, it just has very little workability. The Taylormade also has little workability, and is a good bit shorter on distance as well. I have yet to hit any of the Mizuno, Callaway or Titleist drivers. Any suggestions?
  8. freaking awesome! Someone start a thread for the best pranks ever, I'm sure we would get some really good ones...
  9. I sold my beloved Png S-59's at the beginning of this year for a combo set of Mizuno Mp 52s 7-pw and MX200s 4-6, unbelievable irons, hands down the best feeling equipment I have ever hit. The MX200s would be an ideal club for you to look at, my wife is a high handicapper who normally swings a hybrid set, but tried my mx200s out and hit them extremely well. Perhaps you could buy a 7 iron off ebay or ironfinder.com and see how you like it, you can always re-sell it after you have made your decision. Mizuno makes solid, performing equipment, you won't be disappointed.
  10. I called the course this morning to see if someone had returned it, seems I wasn't the only one that got taken. Several guys had their putters taken, and a few wedges were stolen as well. I'm now convinced it is a worker at the course that is responsible, someone who could grab an item here and there and have a place to stash it until later. Unfortunately I didnt engrave my name on my rangefinder, it was on there with permament marker, which we all know isnt permament if you want it off. But some of the guys whose putters were stolen has the serial #s written down, so hopefully the guy gets caught trying to sell the stuff. I hope he gets caught, arrested and molested by 5 guys with life sentences who employ the use of razor studded condoms......
  11. no, no cameras around. Nobody seen anything, although there were a good many people around. I will never be able to comfortably walk away from my bag again. I guess I will have to look into a locking golf bag, if they make such a thing. I literally feel sick to my stomach.......
  12. Play your game and know when to pick up. Also, be mindful of proper etiquette, like not talking or moving around during their swings, walking in their putting lines, etc. And the #1 tip, do not try to give them advice! Believe it or not, I have played with several high hcp'rs who have at one point or another during a round, offered some kind of swing tip, putting tip, etc. etc. Good golfers usually arent interested in a tip you picked up from Golf Digest. I dont offer any advice unless asked, and I dont want any given to me either. Just play the round like you normally would play.
  13. I played in a local tournament yesterday, and at the turn we ran in and grabbed a drink and snacks. When we came back out, I was about to get in the cart, and noticed my bag didnt look quite right. I looked again, and my fears were confirmed: My Bushnell Pinseeker 1500 rangefinder and case had been taken off my bag, the straps cut with a knife. Gone. No idea who or why. Nobody outside had seen anything. $450 bucks down the drain. I am sick, mad, hurt, so many emotions I don't know what I am. I have personally never had anything stolen from me at the course before. The real salt-in-the-wound is that I know or am familar with every single person that was in the tournament. Who has the nads to walk up to a bag on a cart, knowing that the owner could walk out at any second, and cut a case off a bag, knowing that if anyone seen you cutting a case off, they immedietly know you are stealing. The club pro agreed to keep an eye out for it, as well as a lot of the regulars. A few told me to offer a no-questions-asked reward and maybe can get it back for $100 or so, but to me that would be even worse, paying someone to get my property back. What do you do???!!!!!!!!!!!!
  14. Woods, Els, Wie, Sorenstam are my 4 favorite swings to watch. I'm not going to say that Furyk is the worst, but it is definetly the one I try not to watch , because I am afraid that somehow it is going to get ingrained into my subconscious and i'll begin to swing like that and have to retire!
  15. Definetly not hot, but she's ok to look at; once she talks though, it's all over ... voice so husky, it could pull a sled.....
