    Best ball for swing speed under 90 mph

    +1 on the NEW Srixon Soft Feel, feels good at a good price. Runs out a bit on the greens. On some of my shots, that's a good thing. Looking forward to getting these in yellow.
  2. Starting to really like the Srixon ball product line - like the Z star, QST and Soft Feel. Anyone else game the Srixon's?
  3. After a lot of reading and research, it seems that starting the downswing is a swing key essential. However, when you see videos from teaching pros on tv and on line , in my opinion, you rarely hear it mentioned. On tonights Skill Code, Cameron just talks about curving the ball. Which is a topic for another time, lol. The question is, is a lower body swing key essential. Such as a hip bump or swing from the ground up? Cheers, SG

    Anyone Just Accept Their Swing?

    There's almost a relief in acceptance of your swing. I am a higher capper and sr golfer, but, this can apply to anyone's swing. I'm looking forward to the next round of golf. Also, great replies, guys. It's nice to have the support without getting flamed as you will find in other forums. For once, no one suggested lessons and just debated the topic with their personal in-put.
  5. Anyone just accept their swing? As I approach age 60, I was thinking of just giving in and accepting my flawed swing - especially while I am working. Perhaps, in retirement, I might feel differently. I have made some improvements over the years, changed equipment and have taken lessons. In the end, my score isn't too much different than 20 years ago. Perhaps, it's time to stop wondering if I will magically find something that really works in the next round and just start enjoying the company, beautiful surroundings, do some traveling and play new courses etc.

    Cheap, 3 Piece, Yellow Golf Balls

    I'm in the same boat. With the gamersoft gone - not sure why? I've been on a search for a similar 3 piece and yellow ball. There's a few similar choices if you can deal with white. Such as the Cut golf white or Wilson Duo Soft Spin. I've tried the E6 soft. They are ok. But, they are not cheap. In my opinion, you might like the two piece Top Flight D2 Feel in yellow. If you can get over the amount of pieces, they have the same look at the Gamers, have a decent yellow color, feel and are always 2 for 25. On Black Friday, they will be buy one get one free. I tried the Taylor Made Project S and they were ok. I am not a fan of the matte color and feel of it. Also, I highly recommend you buy sleeves, whenever possible. Go to your local golf shops and I know Edwin Watts sell by the sleeve. You can buy trial packs on Cut Golf. Why get stuck, if you don't like them?

    Mixing swing methods

    I realize this is not the norm. But, does anyone use different swing methods depending on the type of club you are using? I was thinking of trying a best of, of swing methods. For instance, I swing from the ground up with driver on the through swing and short irons and chips, I pull it through with my left hand. The opposite doesn't work. I can't pull the hand through with the driver nor can I swing from the ground up with a 9 iron. Don't flame, me. Just thinking out loud, lol!

    Golf Ball ...Help

    There are many options. As said, before certainly as a new golfer, you will lose balls. So, something cost effective is a good idea. Wilson 50 Elites at Walmart are cheap yet have a nice feel to them. Academy Sports usually have balls on clearance. They also have used recycled balls. Keep Dick's sporting good balls in mind for Black Friday 2 fer sales. As an example, you can get Top Flight D2 Feels 2 for 1. So, 2 dozen at 17.99. You can also get good deals on "consumer direct balls" sold on line. Cut Golf's White (3 piece) and Red (2 piece) are 15 and 10 bucks per dozen. and MG (Master Grip) C4 balls are premium urethane balls at 20 bucks a dozen.
  9. Academy Sports usually has a clearance section. You can get great balls often at 20-40% off. As an example, I picked up Wilson 50's for 10 a piece. Also, wait for Thanksgiving and Black Friday sales, great time to stock up. Often there is bogo at Dicks.
  10. Many seem to believe Adam's position at the top as a model backswing. So, I thought why not copy him. Is it as simple as a wide one piece turn? Also, he stresses a good set up. I haven't heard of a hip tilt (towards the ball before). http://www.golf.com/instruction/adam-scotts-tips-better-setup-and-big-power-boost

    Flying Right Elbow

    Thanks, Bill. With this thought, it creates a nice triangle. When I get into this position. It's hard getting the up in the backswing.

    Help with ball selection

    Larry, What ball did you go with?

    Flying Right Elbow

    I would love to get rid of my flying right elbow. Yes, I know about Jack and Carl Peterson has one, too. But, If I could learn to tuck my right elbow it would flatten the shaft out nicely on the backswing. Any ideas on how to get there?
  14. My son loses many balls and he often uses range balls or old discolored balls. One shouldn't give up performance with range or crappy balls as there's too many cheap options out there if you look for them with decent quality. Most retailers have buckets of balls at low prices. Also, for free - stroll any golf course in the early evening. You're bound to pick up a few balls. Also, know the spots on your favorite course where balls are found. 1st tee, 170 yards out and 40 yards right, there are free balls
