  1. Starting to really like the Srixon ball product line - like the Z star, QST and Soft Feel. Anyone else game the Srixon's?

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

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

    Srixon Golf Balls

    You owe it to try the Q Star tour one time. Dick's usually has sample packs and you can get them online too. Moderate feel, 30 per dozen, comes in yellow and they spin on the green! They usually run sales on them too.
  4. Anyone get their hands on the new SuperSoft Magna? It's a larger ball made for high cappers and people with slow swing speeds. It should be officially released on Feb 8th.

    Callaway SuperSoft Magna Golf Ball

    I remember the original too. It didn't help hooks or slices much. But, if it comes in yellow and sits a little higher in the fairway, I am in.
  6. Not sure why this is happening. But, I am tightening my grip in the through swing and it is most noticeable at the end of the follow through. Any suggestions?

    Tighten grip in the through swing

    Thx for the replies. It could be mental. I have a bad wrist and do dread a fat shot. Great stuff. This seems to be a common reply, will check it out, Happy New Year to all! Happy golfing too!

    Cheap, 3 Piece, Yellow Golf Balls

    Agreed, if you are ok with matte balls, why pay more for a similar product. The consumer direct brands make a lot of sense. With that said, I'd rather pay a few more dollars for the Q Star Tour when it is on sale. In that case, it's not much of a different price and I get the shiny yellow ball that I prefer. Plus, this ball has green side spin.

    That's a good price, let me know how they play. I personally don't like the matte balls. They feel different and attract a lot of dirt.
  10. 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

    Is a Lower Body Swing Key Essential

    Agreed, we've all made that effortless swing and the ball is flushed. But, when we intend to make an effortless swing, it's usually a weak shot. Why is the game so puzzling? I believe there should be an intended lower body move. But, it is still hard to execute.

    Changed My Golf Ball

    The Velocity is a nice ball and it comes in yellow and orange. You do have to consider that it will roll out on the greens compared to a urethane premium ball. Comparing them to supersoft is fair as far as they are both distance and straight balls. However, the Velocity is much firmer. So, it comes down to what feels best. Both balls run like rats on the green in the summer time.

    Found My Go-To Golf Balls

    Agreed, it's hard to justify 40-50 for a dozen balls. You've got to try Srixon's at Dick's. They have Q Star Tours 6 packs for 10 bucks, if you buy today or tomorrow they are 25% off of that. If you get hooked, they normally go for 30. Srixon Soft Feel is a nice ball and softer at 20. Besides Black Friday, last year Srixon offered discounts around the Masters. Also, I find the Duo's, Supersoft, Softfli to be too soft.

    Cheap, 3 Piece, Yellow Golf Balls

    Q star tour in yellow, next month Duo Professional, comes in matte green, yellow. Not cheap, but not too expensive,

  18. Is there a Trail knee friendly backswing, something I can change at address and or backswing? I have been to an ortho and he doesn't see any problems. I do have exercises which help. But, this problem comes and goes, I assume it is something I am doing while playing or practicing. Any recommendations or video would be appreciated. Cheers, SG

    Trail knee friendly backswing

    Thanks, iacas. I will update my swing.

    Trail knee friendly backswing

    My trail knee got better. Now, it hurts again. Just reaching out in case there's any new sandtrap members who have a suggestion on any tips for a backswing that won't stress my trail knee. Thanks, SG

    Srixon Golf Balls

    I'd recommend the QST. For 8-10 bucks more, you get to watch them spin on the green.

    Found My Go-To Golf Balls

    Those are great balls for the price. I was too attracted by the soft ball craze. After a few more years of sampling different balls, I have found I prefer golf balls in the mid compression range. Yet still soft. Those are Bridgestone extra soft, TM Project S and slightly firmer, Q Star tour.

    Looking for a New Golf Ball

    +1 on the QST 2018. They come in yellow. Nice feel, decent price and if you watch for a sale, it's even lower. It took some time getting use to the greenside spin. But, now I love it. Us hacks can spin it like a pro. I think I finally found a replacement and upgrade to the Gamersoft. The Z stars are on sale now. So, it's kind of weird to stay with the QST at the same price. But, I find the z star a bit too firm.

    Srixon Golf Balls

    Q Star or QST? You've got to try the QST for the green side spin.

    Srixon Golf Balls

    Played the QST again in 60 degree temps. It felt great and there was plenty of green side spin. At DSG, they have 6 ball trial packs at 10 dollars, which can't be beat. In the very cold weather, I will be going with the soft feel.
