  1. +1. Would like to switch from using the phone to a dedicated, small device. Any recommendations for something that fits these needs ... GPS yardage with pre-programmed courses Shot tracking per club (preferably with software/website that does avg distances per club) Scorecard Hassle-free as possible. Want to spend as much time as possible playing not messing with tech Small as possible Thanks so much!
  2. Unashamed to say I wear these and love them
  3. Yep, I switched to chipping (30 yrds and in) to ball position just inside front foot. Working great, saw it on golf channel & golf digest. Not full swing, just chipping is what I saw/use.
  4. Anyone going to this please let me know, we could meet up!
  5. My new used Callaway X2 Hot has a neutral/draw adjustment, as do many clubs. Help if you want it, none if you don't. I like it so far.
  6. I just got a Callaway X2 Hot 9* from their pre-owned site for about $100. I got it after hitting a friends X-Series on-course and just being blown away. It's a 2014 model, and it makes a huge difference. No, it's not going to fix fundamental swing issues, but does make a difference. Bigger sweet-spot, more forgiving, very long. Question: I'm about 5'8 and these 46" drivers feel too long for me. I don't want to hack down my brand new used driver and mess with the swing weight, etc... what to do? I know I should get fitted but I just cannot do my normal thing in those Golfsmith hitting bays. I tried, they couldn't recommend anything based on what I did in there. On the course or range I'm fine. I think 45 or 44.5 is a better length for me.
  7. I think there are some common things pros do we can use, there must be a cheat-sheet somewhere. i.e Jason Day before every shot: closes eyes, deep breath, etc. Positive thinking, shot visualization, breathing, intermediate target, etc.
  8. For my, it's the end-to-end swing, but for you it may be something else. Whatever it is that helps your mind clear and be present to now. Not the last shot, nor the next shot, nor the score, nor the person/people with you, etc. Have you checked out any sports psychology books?
  9. I just saw a McIlry interview for The Open, he said and I quote "my game is 75% mental". This from a guy that spends more time in the gym and with trainers, dietitians, etc. than I spend online. For me, it's about being "in the moment" or in "the zone". Nothing matters, just the swing, the end-to-end performance of the swing. Even where the ball goes doesn't matter, just the most perfect swing I can muster. This has helped me in all situations, and my score has definitely improved. When my mind is busy, my game sucks, period. The mind is part of the body, they are one system.
  10. I like Swing by Swing, but I don't really use it this way, I don't think it has social. I just mostly use it for yardage and shot tracking.
  11. I took lessons last year from a zen-type PGA pro, and this was his #1 thing. He taught it to me many different ways, but it always came back to this. When I had an issue later, we had a follow-up, he tweaked one small hand-position thing, and boom, right back to swing, don't hit. When you can do it, it's magic, like a hot knife through butter.
  12. I would use it as an opportunity to work on my mental game. I've found as much as I work on my physical game, the mental game is what takes over during a round. When something external disturbs me it's a chance to look at myself. If I'm choosing to be disturbed, who or what am I giving my power to?
  13. Sorry if this has already been answered, but where can I watch a replay? Seems this was exclusively aired and I couldn't watch live.
  14. Any early thoughts on this? Looks interesting...
  15. 50* gap wedge 3/4 swing. I need to get a new 54* and learn how to use it, but for now pretty good with the 50.
