  1. As a Sr Golfer with a bad back and bad trail knee, I am always seeking for some tip to get me in a proper backswing position. The following video is very long. But, if you care to skim through it (start at 45.12), you will see an important drill. Take your trail trail hand off the club, turn with the target side arm. Then slip back the trail arm and you have the perfect backswing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oqGxklUmsA
  2. That's like being too rich. Never enough shaft lean.
  3. It won't be that high. Buy a sleeve at your local golf shop. Personally, the balls are disappointing. The feel is just odd compared to a regular ball. The slice is reduced. But, if you are a slicer (rightie) the ball will still get into trouble on the right.
  4. You're not the intended audience for the ball which are high cappers, woman, slow swingers, sr's.
  5. Agreed. What I remember is the Top Flight Magna ball would slice and hook despite their bold claims. It appears with this new ball, it is very straight but short on distance. Straight is good Also, in my opinion, they should have went with a new name.
  6. lol and I noticed when opening up the box in the store, they were hard to get out of the box. I guess a standard golf ball box is used.
  7. The few reviews out there seem very positive. Some say, it's like the ball is teed up in the fairway. Once, they come out in yellow and retail, I will post a review. SG
  8. 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,
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. I consider myself a slow swing and really enjoy the Q Star. The Z star is firmer and a quicker swing speed would good.
  12. 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
  13. He must prefer a much softer and cheaper ball. I do as well. But, there's no green side spin with the softfli's.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. Maybe look into a stack n tilt swing, keeping your weight left throughout the swing?
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
