    My Swing (DutchGolf)

    Thanks for your feedback. I agree, when you see most golfers on the television, club and hands are above their head at top of backswing, I feel for me it is far too low. Do you think I should move my hands more upward? Thanks! Do you know some drill to work at a centered Pivot, should I focus on straightening the right leg? The wrong swing by Erik in that video looks like me, definitely something I should change! I really appreciate your feedback guys. In fact it motivates me to head to the course to make some better swings!

    My Swing (DutchGolf)

    Hi Everyone, After three years of golfing, I feel like my level of play is not improving, I am stuck. I was playing at a handicap of 22 for a while, but last few months I played worse. I am struggeling with a fade/slice, especially with the driver. Furthermore I feel I lack distance for someone my age (24), my 5 iron goes around 160 yards for example, I would love to see some higher numbers. I tend to look up to many instructional videos on Youtube, which leads to confusion what I should improve. There is so much information out there.. That is why I posted a thread hear, to hear opinions from experienced teacher/good golfers on my swing. My bad shots are mainly a pull or a push fade. I cannot hit a draw, when i set up for a hook, I can maybe draw it a few yards, but thats it. Can you guys please help me out with some tips? Thanks! I've been Playing Golf for: 3 years My current handicap index or average score is: 22, but playing closer to 28 lately My typical ball flight is: Fade or pull The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Slice to the right or Straight pull Videos: 7 iron down the line 7 iron Face on Driver down the line. I am sorry for the poor quality, didn't note until i got home. Driver face on

    Which Golf Pill Would You Take?

    I would choose pill A. Getting good distance on shots is the biggest problem. If pill A would be 50 yards, it would also be my choice
  5. Yes I did, but can’t figure out how to contact Titleist here. He also showed pics of invoice and quality assurance doc.
  6. Hi Guys, I am looking for irons on EBay. I found the following; https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.nl%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F132512852162 Do you guys think these are legit? At first, the seller did not show pictures of the club face, but following my request, he made the last picture. They look good to me, but seller does not have a very long history...

    Your biggest miss?

    My biggest miss is topping the ball. I also can hit the ground way behind the golf ball. If i could move the bottom of my swing forward...

    2016 Ryder Cup Discussion Thread

    Well played USA, based on the entire week this is a deserved victory. They were the better side and holed the putts. From the European perspective, quite disappointing that 4 players did not pick up a single point. Especially Westwood was painful to watch. Looking back,that was not a good pick.

    2016 PGA Tour Championship Discussion Thread

    It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.

    Had my first Albatross Yesterday

    Agreed, wasn't trying to downplay his achievement, just explaning something, not on a very serious note. Everybody talks gross score here, so in my example nearly everybody would say "I had a birdie". But theoretically you can call it condor. With regard to making a ace on a par 5, all my drives are "just" short of the green. Might ask DJ to do it

    Had my first Albatross Yesterday

    I'm in the albatross camp, logically, considering I live in Europe. Albatross is not the rarest of birds in golf here. There is also a condor. If you play Stableford and score four strokes under your par (for example you recieve 3 strokes on a hole and birdie it) then you have a condor. 6 Stableford points in the pocket then! To the OP, congratulations with the Albatross, something most of us will never achieve!
  12. It could be better for you. More expensive does not always mean better for you. But there can be a lot of things that you can't see with your eye that justify a higher price. And this is a bit related to the remark by @iacas, it is a game of supply and demand. Goods are worth what someone pays for it.
