  1. Very neat to know. Related question then....how many tour players have coaches then? Are they just looking it up in addition to what their coaches or are there guys figuring it out solo?
  2. The Dangers of YouTube and Instagram Golf Swing Tips YouTube and Instagram are popular places for golf swing... I've been guilty of the YT rabbit hole and have been enjoying getting off the videos finally trying to find the next tip. Anyone else fall down the rabbit hole?
  3. So what is he doing, just zero forearm rotation during the backswing to grt the club in that position?
  4. Last year was the first year I had a club where Golf Canada fees were included. I play probably 95% of my rounds alone with not many being from this year. I've played alone enough that I wouldnt even be eligible for Golf Saskatchewan events this year if I wanted to play. Anywho...I have Gamegolf and still use an unofficial handicap tracker alongside the Golf Canada app/website. GG 16.7 (Just noticed I'm missing a few rounds there actually) Unofficial HI 15.6 Golf Canada HI 19.7
  5. I saw it today for the 1st time at Golftown. Really loved how it looked in terms of colour and design. I do think the smaller head looks better at address but didnt ask to hit it. Saw the loft went as high as 13.5.
  6. So watching the "Best Rounds" on Golf channel where they showed the old Tiger footage from Pebble. A few times hes standing outside the teebox with the ball at the edge. What was his reasoning? Did he do that a lot back then as I dont recall him doing so in recent rounds I've watched? It was hard to tell if he was doing so against a mis aligned teebox.
  7. Yes to shorts, dont know why the need for pants. Its 2019, clinging to tradition is so silly to me.
  8. Personally I like the clubs are just golf focused, and of the semi private variety. I'm a twilight member with practise facilities at a very nice course but with no requirements to spend money and no other amenities. Didnt pay the extra for storage and cleaning. Basically as a twilight golfer, the decision was twilight member costs vs paying each time I played. It's really the only course in my area to offer the twilight membership. I would join the muni courses here as I like them, but they only offer memberships that make it cheaper if you are a retiree playing during the day a lot.
  9. https://www.gamegolf.com/player/cutchemist42/round/2621470?hole_id=45247559 First round I want to post this year after about 5 weeks into the season and I would say I shot my best round ever. Was really tempted to keep going after 9 but I still had stuff to do today I like comparing myself to a 15 HI as thats my goal for reaching this year (20.2 HI on Golf Canada, 16.5 on GameGolf) and this was the 1st round I ever shot scratch off the tee for 9 holes. Whats awesome is that even included a topped tee shot on the first hole as my eyes still weren't adjusted to the contact by the time I walked up to the first tee. (This year Im trying going glasses-less during rounds to see how I like it) 2nd shot after the topped tee shot was a topped 4iron so I might need to adjust my contacts routine. This might sound crazy but literally a grip change resulted in straighter drives. I was feeling the club twisting in the backswing for a few weeks now and no matter how hard I gripped it, I was losing the handle by the time it reached the top of the backswing. Looked into my grips again as I recently changed it a few months ago and just realized now I bought the W5-standard size of Winn grip. Bought the midsize W6 grip and instantly imrpoved my recognition of the clubface and it was no longer twisting. Kicking myself for not realizing the problem sooner. I'm also really enjoying my vow to not keep score during a round, which is a tip I heard on the Fried Egg podcast.
  10. Yeah it was last week that I listened to it but I believe they mentioned that as being a workable model. I just thought it makes too much sense and I dont see how the golf federations could have liked the appeal that the tourney had.
  11. Not my original thought, as this idea comes from the Fried Egg Podcast, Episode 102 on 5 Changes on Improving Golf. The host and ESPNs Kevin Van Valkunberg discussed the topic on how MEH the Olympic tourney was for intrigue by being simply individual strokeplay. They also mentioned on how the Presidents Cup is also pretty meh because the comaderie of the rest-of-world team isnt there unless playing your with your fellow countrymen. What they proposed instead was a team format as there are about 30 countries with 4 players in the top 1000 in the world. I frankly loved the idea as the Olympic tourney was really easy to ignore as a normal strokeplay event. You would get to see amped up country comaderie that you usually see in the Olympics.
  12. I have never seen this before and just thought I'd post it. I tried searching if he does this with every swing or for reasons why he started gripping this way but couldn't find much. Maybe just searching badly....
  13. Not getting a lesson sooner a few years back. Chased a bad hook for months and wasted lots of money at the range thinking I could figure it out. I'll admit part of my fear though was not knowing who to go to and feel I wanted money on bad instruction. I think going too long without making videos was a slight mistake.
  14. I feel dumb for not realizing this sooner but I've had better luck lately with not losing tee shots by staying to the right side of the teebox and slightly adjusting my to the middle right of the fairway. I had never stumbled upon this suggestion until a few days ago as I would always line up in the middle. Its helping some of my hooks stay atleast in the rough instead of lost or out of bounds. I'm now though slightly confused about how this approach should work for consideration when you have doglegs that can be cut down with a full driver shot. Say your bad miss is a stronger hook and you are facing a dogleg left.....does lining up on the left side of the teebox still give you more fairway to land on? What if it's a dogleg left? I'm just curious to hear others considerations for where they choose to tee it up inside of the invisible box we have to work with.
  15. Yep. I think a lot of golfers arent hanging out online and hearing the pace of play critislcisms. They are still continuing how they were wrongly taught by their dads/moms/friends to play when it comes to pace. I actually believe the criticism of pace of play wrongdoers likely never reaches their ears 95% of the time.
