  1. Repeating this, but my gps unit really helped me. It also was not overnight as it took a few rounds to accumulate hits, but gamegolf helped me get an accurate take on my distances which paired with the Garmin GPs really helped.

    Why Aren't There More Heated Ranges? (Minnesota)

    In Canada so that store doesnt exist. I have heard what they offer though from online forums. We have Golftowns that offer 55 min bookings for about $24. They use the Foresight GC2 which online opinions seem to say is pretty decent.

    "The Stock Tour Swing" by Tyler Ferrell

    First post......just got this book from the library. Already a few chapters in and enjoying what I'm seeing so far. The visuals provided are clear and easy to understand.

    Why Aren't There More Heated Ranges? (Minnesota)

    I have heard that in some places as well that Golftec offers practise plans on their software for a monthly fee. I also know Golftown offers an hourly fee on their simulator, but I'm not sure about the quality of the equipment. Anyone know?

    Why Aren't There More Heated Ranges? (Minnesota)

    When I lived in Winnipeg, they have a dome that is maybe 70-80 yards deep and heated outdoor range. You had to know good times to go to the outdoor range as the glare off the snow made it impossible to see the ball flight Saskatoon has a dome that seems similar to size as Winnipegs. I use it mostly every 3 weeks to keep some semblance of my swing. I always bring footspray to know hit quality. Like Zander said, it's so short that sometimes you can barely pick up any curve in the shot. It's still useful for at least knowing start line as they have targets on the wall.
  6. Having started golf 4 years ago, I was quickly told to get hybrids into the set over the long irons. I could understand/imagine how that change would have helped with little effort in a swing change.
  7. On Christmas, I got a gift card from Golftown so went into the store on boxing day to check it out. In my mind, I wanted to find a lob wedge as my performance with my current Nike one with 12* of bounce was noticeably worse than my performance with other clubs. I had read enough about low bounce wedges suiting certain turf conditions and swing styles and thought it sounded suited to me. Within 4 swings, I knew right away the club was performing amazingly so I purchased it, it was 6* of bounce. It wasn't the only 6* bounce wedge I tried either. It also easily outperformed the Nike wedge I had which I brought in to compare. So yeah, went in with my stock swing and improved the club category for the next season. It was a Cleveland Rtx3. What's your example of this?

    Worldwide Golf Handicap System to Debut in 2020

    Read the first 4 pages and felt like posting. As someone who follows various types of racing sports (auto,moto, track and field, horse) I'm used to talking about a track/course being slower/faster on a given day. That kind of thinking easily relates to golf once I started playing this game. As someone who likes to see the numbers and has an intro level of stats knowledge, I'm just curious about stuff behind the scenes. I would like to see the daily adjustment number and how many rounds were used on a day to get it. I'm also just curious what the sample size needed is to establish the adjustments.

    My Course Rating Got Changed Thread

    I know iacas already mentioned it, but my course is still going through scorecards with the old ratings. There's slight differences, but this was my first year at the course SK I couldn't tell if anything vastly changed about the course.

    Overrated/Underrated (Golf) Topic

    I would say underrated. The more distance you can cover in a shot, the better. It would take a pretty hazardous guarded green area to make me layup. Personally, my home course does not have highly guarded greens so I always go for it. (One out of the 4 is unreachable for me from my tees) Anyone have an example of a green where the distance is fine, but the trouble around the green makes you layup?

    Ever Played While It Was Snowing?

    Only this year, it was -8 Cel with windchill, a few holes had blowing snow, and sandtraps had frozen water. Didnt bother playing the last 4 holes.

    What are Your 2019 Golf Goals?

    2019 Goals Get my official Hi down to 14; right now my official HI is 19.9 as I haven't played 18 holes with anyone since August. My GG HI is 17.4, with an unofficial tracker at 17.6. I plan to get there by hopefully continuing my play at the end of the season. My last 5 rounds of the year from GG are below. I really figured out my back pain at the end, and figured it out it was from bad back extension from trying to maintain a centered head. So a lot of my winter practise will focus on the upper body movement as I rotate. Working on my putting should really help get me there easier. I know Im bad at starting on a straight line in a pressure putt and will figure out a way to work on that. I played 46 rounds last year with many weekends lost to stuff out of my control. I dont have as many weddings/ other social events this Summer so I think cracking 55 is a do-able goal. Got a gym membership this Winter to improve my overall fitness. I want to lose a bit of weight while gaining muscle. I hope my lack of flexibility is improved over the winter. ****Not a goal, but Saskatchewan had a late start to the golf year.....HI season starts April 15th but I dont think I golf until 16 days after that from bad weather. I really hope its a more normal year at the start.
  13. I hate that I didnt figure this out until the last week, but I had started wondering why my back was hurting so much. Did some mirror work with my movements and did google searching. Came to the realization that I was trying to keep my head too centered and was really extending my back badly. Really helped me out and created even a slight draw from just changing my head position a bit.

    High handicaps, do you play in club championships? (no flights)

    I did last year because I like to see good golf played on the same holes I play regularly.I wasnt able to this year.

    GuaranTee Golf

    I actually find the times I miss my driver is when I run out of my pre-striped tees and teed the ball too low with a non marked tee. With a non marked tee, I just find my tendency is to tee it too low and I dont notice how low I made it. I know right away from the feel that I smoked the bottom of the face. I use these from Golftown. http://www.pridegolftee.com
