  1. Nice, congrats. It's great to have people who are great teachers and also very involved in the community!
  2. Definitely not a fan of the logo, I agree that it feels 'off' with the spacing. I could see him getting into clubs/balls, esp if he buy TM. Buy TM -> Make a come back -> ?? -> Profit? I feel like having the Tiger Woods name attached to TM would at least boost sales for a short period, even if hes not playing well. If he DOES play well... then who knows.
  3. Noticed that at the range the other day, my back swing seemed very short. Almost like I'm starting my lower body too soon. Could this be a factor in causing a push? I think in 1-2 of the videos above I was trying to stay slow and in control which resulted in a full swing. And straight shot?
  4. I should add that my current miss and biggest struggle right now is a push border line push fade with my irons. I think I'm going in - to - out but my club face seems to be so far open. Over gripping / tension in forarms might be a cause, not allowing for the club to release through impact? Been working on this a bit lately.
  5. Alright, I'm back! Been playing in a few leagues over the summer, working on the house, and a kid on the way... Going to get back to focusing on improving my swing this fall/winter. I've taken a few more lessons spread out over the summer, but haven't really put in the time to really make consistent swing changes. I've broke 90 twice over the summer though, so still improving. Mostly due to better chipping/putting. Some new videos - 7iron FO/DTL and Driver FO/DTL. I had a driver fitting done and found that I was delofting the club a ton. Also really wasn't like my TM jetspeed, ended up getting a 915D2 with a heavier speeder shaft... Feels so much better. Obervations from my videos - Driver - Looks like my swing has definitely gotten better since last video. Still dropping a bit on the back swing, and my back swing is pretty short Iron - Still dipping in my back swing a lot, biggest issue right now. Seems like I'm not casting as much anymore though. Comments welcome!
  6. Only chance would be MAYBE to try to deflect him to the right a bit more so he takes out the other women. Pretty big maybe.. lol Otherwise, what is he going to do? Jump in the way and add to the carnage that gets pilled up on the floor?
  7. Pretty much in the same boat! I played most of this year with a 3/4 iron off the tee in fear of my driver. The upside to this is that it's really given me a lot of confidence in my long irons Now that I'm starting to get the driver down, it's slowly coming together :)
  8. I definitely feel this way, the inside swing path has added considerable distance to my drives. Though part of that distance is probably due to not losing a lot due to slice spin.
  9. Had a huge break thru in my driver swing. I was casually going through some videos and came across this And I noticed I was definitely making an effort to take the club back very straight; I don't know why or where I picked it up but I thought that was desired. Anyways, by taking the driver back a little inside, it makes a massive difference in being able to swing inside-out. After a couple range sessions and 2 rounds, I think I only sliced 2 or 3; and none of them were the huge huge miss that I'm used to seeing. A combination of the 'intentional hooks' I was working on earlier and this is great. I also feel like I'm able to get my weight forward easier, but that may just be confidence in being able to swing without fear of a huge slice
  10. Went to the range to work on my driver yesterday. Been very consistent with my setup, but was still having issue. I started messing around with trying to hit massive hook, by really getting inside-out and really trying to turn my hands over. This had some interesting positive results, I was able to get a few draws/hooks ( usually some low hooks ) but I could feel a sweet spot / balance there that led to some very long straight drivers for me .. And swinging with that mentality almost all but eliminated my slice ( 2-3 out of 30 or so ended up slicing, but that may have been a lapse in my focus of what I was trying to do. ) Either way, not really to sure what to think of it. I've been planning another short lesson or two after christmas, so maybe I'll be able to work that out with a pro
  11. Another round, another mid 90s ( 95 on a par 71 ) performance. Definitely need some short game work. Pulled out my driver about 4 times today, hit the fairway 3/4 and the one miss was on a par 5 that I ended up getting on the green in 3 anyways. Feel like things are starting to come together, but had a rough day putting and it was probably the windiest I've played in... definitely unexpected lol
  12. I think chspeed was right, my stance was a little wide and a little off. Felt better with it at the range this week, but still not great. Played today, shot a 96 which coulda/shoulda been closer to a 90. Two back to back blowup holes ( 8 on a par 4, 6 on a par 3 ) due to poor approach shots into TWO buried bunker shots... I'm not terrible in the bunker, but can't reliably get those deep ones out. Still shying away from the driver for the most part, I think I hit it twice off the tee today. The course we played was really narrow, so sticking to my 3 and 4 iron felt way better anyways.
  13. Yea, thinking about it I might be a little wide. Seems like it may be harder to transfer weight off my back foot if I'm too wide Probably hit the range today
  14. No new video yet, but been working on weight forward drills. Overall feeling pretty good but still struggling with my driver. I'm not really sure why but it is very hard for me to get my the weight off my back foot ( as shown in the video ) with my driver swing, as well as getting my swing in to out. Tried my 3 wood off the tee a bit yesterday at the range, and felt pretty good. Seemed like I was hitting it about the same distance as my 'average' driver shots considering I lose a pretty good amount of distance due to the slice. Might try that out next round until I can get a handle on my driver.
  15. Thanks :) I was at the range this week on work travel, so I had to use a loaner club. I've been working on starting my downswing with my lower body to shift the weight as I mentioned earlier. I expected to hit it a little further and crisper but I didn't expect a HUGE difference in my driver slice. I was starting to hit the driver really well, hopefully I can translate that to my driver :p
