  1. 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!
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Yes I did, but can’t figure out how to contact Titleist here. He also showed pics of invoice and quality assurance doc.
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. My biggest issues are tops/thinned shots or fat shots. Also a lack of distance compared to others. I just cannot get my weight forward, which causes these problems. Very frustrating.
  10. 2 days ago I started an 18 hole round at 6:40pm. Finished at 10:00pm. Onte time I played till 10:35pm, but it was really hard to track your ball on the last two holes. I was playing 18, starting at 7:20pm. Latest time I started a 9 hole round is probably around 8:00pm.
  11. 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
  12. 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!
  13. Disappointing that Henrik Stenson does not start very well in his "home" tournament, +3 thru 13
  14. 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.
  15. @9wood if I put a brand new Pro V1 next to a random cheap ball I found in the trees, what differences are we going to see? I think we hardly see any differences. Still people pay a lot more for Pro V1s than for lakeballs, and a lot of Pro V1s are being sold every day. Why do people buy Pro V1s if they do not look that different? Are those people stupid? I don't think so. People buy them for materials, performance, feel and even for the brand and status. Not everything is in the looks.

    Yep, too bad Irish open did not went very well. Lets hope he does well at the flagship event of the European Tour
  17. For me the answers are Yes and Yes. Last year I believe I was a 36 and now my handicap is 24, goal is to be below 20 at the end of the season. Another thing that makes improvement obvious that sometimes I can be annoyed with a shot that would have been a good shot last year.
  18. Thanks for all the replies, I agree with @krupa that it is a hassle to use your phone during the round. I have used Hole19 before, but I think Game Golf has more options and data and so on. Maybe I am going the same route as @Missouri Swede, first trying the app and buying the tags later, but it looks like quite some investment at this point. Some more questions: how useful is such a device for a hacker like me, my shots are not very consistent by any means, can I still get some useful data from the app? And for the people that use the system on your belt, does it interferes with your swing? I'm worried a bit that it can be 'in the way' when you swing.
  19. Hi guys, maybe this is mentioned before in this topic, but is anyone using Gamegolf without tags, on your phone? Just downloaded the app and going to try it tonight. What are your findings using the app on your phone? And is it common for guys here to follow each other?
  20. I'm sorry, after reading the OP again I saw Pelz only talked about 6 feet and in, I thought he was making the distinction between tap-ins and 2-6 feet putts as well. Thats what caused the confusion here. Thanks.
  21. Thanks for your nice explanation @iacas. But I have one question for my own understanding. In your explanation you are deducting 9 tap-ins, but could some of those tap-ins not be the result of a 2-6 feet putt? So that you should deduct less than 9 putts? I agree with you that 6 strokes is probably very optimistic, and I am not trying to be an ass, but I do not totally understand it .
  22. Bad idea, this makes the game even more complex to understand. Plus it does not change how many strokes I need to get the ball in the hole or something. There is already a handicap system that gives people strokes based on their ability. Besides, they can always tee it forward.

    Joost played really well the past weeks/days. Today also, saw on television that he is also very good with his putter, making some nice putts around 15 feet. Good for his position in the OWGR.
  24. This, and you can add that these guys know there is a lot of golf to be played. A triple bogey is easily made here, see Day on 16. It surely wont be boring after today, even if Spieth is 5 shots ahead.
