    Bump. Have you played these Magna's yet?

    They are 35 compression and out today. Disappointed they are only available in white for retail. They are supposed to roll out the yellow after the initial launch. Yellow is available on the Callaway site,
  3. Balls like Q Star tour and TM Project A are nice middle of the road options. Let's face it, even if you don't need it, it's fun to see the ball check up on the green. If money is an issue, try Cut, Snell, MG, Vice etc for online direct to consumer options.

    When to Start Playing the Same Ball?

    I think it is ok to switch balls and experiment. If you are losing 4 balls a round, I would consider price and feel. There are so many decent choices in this category. Such as Wilson 50 elite, TopFlight D2 Feel, Bridgestone Extra Soft. If you prefer even softer balls and can go a little higher in price. Supersoft or coming soon (10-8) Supersoft magna. This is a slightly bigger ball recommended for beginners.

    Did You Have a Eureka Moment?

    What do you do to hit the ball first?

    I consider myself a slow swing and really enjoy the Q Star. The Z star is firmer and a quicker swing speed would good.

    Beginner in need of help.

    Welcome, Miits. Having played a few years, I have some general comments that may help a beginner that have nothing to do with swing technique. Play par 3 courses, then executives courses and then easier 18 hole par 71/72 courses. Stay away from the ball eater courses. Gain some confidence through this process. What type of equipment do you use? If you're a beginner playing hand me down blades, you're in for a hard time. You may want o try hybrid irons or using woods instead of a 3 and 5 iron. I have HB3 by Cleveland. They can't be found now. But, they have a similar set called Launcher HB's, Good Luck! Enjoy the journey! SG

    He must prefer a much softer and cheaper ball. I do as well. But, there's no green side spin with the softfli's.

    Getting Stuck on the Backswing

    ok, let's assume (not a stretch) that I am not turning and swaying with arm bend. What do I do? Go back to turning both shoulders and arms to make a turn? I've tried the wall drill, lead shoulder down with trail leg extension. It's great without a club. With a club, I can't get the hang of it. From there, is it a hip bump on the downswing? Thanks, SG

    Getting Stuck on the Backswing

    Thanks, Club Rat, Lift and swaying is an issue. I do have spine/back soreness for 35 years. Yes, with my weight transfer, the weight rolls past my right foot. If I try to restrict it, I have knee pain. Agreed, I can take a new video. But, you are right, "I am not turning. A little sway. Bending the arms more than needed to compensate" I have tried to turn with no sway, extend the arms and the result doesn't change.
  14. I am getting stuck on the backswing. I can swing less than (3 o'clock) with no restrictions, then I have to lift and sway to complete the backswing. I used to think this was a physical issue. But, now I am thinking I haven't ruled out something technical like fanning the club open in the backswing or something else. Are there any typical explanations for a limited/restricted backswing? Thx SG

    Tendency to slice w/no toes on left foot...

    Maybe look into a stack n tilt swing, keeping your weight left throughout the swing?
