  1. I use my 52 for just about anything inside 100. Been getting pretty good at controlling my distances with that club.
  2. The two courses I play are 72.8/134 and 72.8/133 from the tees I play. I hover around the low 80s a good amount, but I can't get over the hump :( I actually haven't updated my handicap in like two years, though. I should probably set up a GHIN profile or whatever through my club.
  3. I dunno, I didn't invent the handicap formula
  4. I'll try to get a video up at some point this week. I've been hitting the ball farther than I've ever hit it before, and it doesn't even feel like I'm trying to. Not sure if it's from better fitness or an improvement in mechanics, but I'm guessing it's a combination of the two. Either way, I'm not complaining.
  5. Electronics aside (cell phone and computer), I have a 10-inch dobsonian telescope that's pretty awesome. I want to take it up to Cherry Springs State Park in North Central PA, since much more can be seen there than in Philly.
  6. Because some men just want to watch the world burn, I voted for the sod
  7. Only 7 pars on the day? Not impressed
  8. I couldn't edit again (waited too long, I guess), but what causes the early extension?
  9. Got my phone replaced, so here's a video from earlier this evening. I'm trying to get a steeper shoulder turn (I probably should keep the clubs I use in these swing videos consistent, oops), but it doesn't look like I'm actually much steeper with the irons than before. I was hitting a lot of shots off the upper part of the toe with the driver, but I hit a lot of nice iron shots. Due to my inability to properly position the camera, the iron video looks like I'm aiming way more right than I actually am.
  10. when keeping it real goes wrong
  11. My club uses 12-minute intervals for one course and 15 for the other. I couldn't imagine what it'd look like with 8-minute intervals...
  12. Got back about half an hour ago, but in the time between these posts, my phone randomly got stuck in a bootloop and it doesn't seem like something I can fix
  13. I went to the range today and worked on getting a steeper shoulder turn. After a while it started to feel a bit more natural and my shots were looking better, but I needed to make a conscious effort to steepen my shoulders. Then again, correcting a 11- or 12-year-old swing fault (or however long I've been playing this damn game) to the point where it feels natural isn't going to happen overnight, I guess. I'll probably post a video tonight or tomorrow; I'm not at my computer right now.
  14. My personal best is nine pars. The one time I broke 80, I only had four pars.
  15. If it's quiet enough that other groups aren't able to hear it unless they're really close, I don't have an issue with it, but it doesn't sound like that was the case for the OP. Interestingly enough, if I heard someone blasting Journey in the middle of the fairway, I'd be totally fine with it.
