  1. - Line up - Feel as though my forearms and hands are one piece - Look up and attempt to gauge the distance - Hit it
  2. - line up behind ball - tee ball to correct height - make sure setup is correct - reduce grip pressure - swing
  3. Limited Edition Wilson Staff FG59s. Harks back to the old days and are probably brutally unforgiving but you have to admit they are pretty to look at... http://www.golfonline.co.uk/wilson-s...ft-p-4333.html http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/WILSON-STAFF-f...08151310a31810
  4. Pretty much one to two inches behind the left heel for every shot. Main reason is for sheer simplicity and so I don't have to worry about how far back or forward the ball is for every single shot.
  5. 52.8, 56.10, 60.4 is my standard set but I sometimes switch these for higher bounce wedges if the conditions demand it.
  6. http://www.capitalgolfclub.com.au/mgafeatures1.html I know its a bit far but hey you asked. LOL Note - its a lot bigger than what what the pictures appear to depict.
  7. Used to hit a draw but found that when my swing went awry the ball went absolutely everywhere. Hence, I've switched over to a stock fade (but I can still draw the ball when required).
  8. I caved in the face of my 980F early last year (hitting range balls - you could actually see a chunk of the ball lodged in the face where it gave in. LOL). Surprisingly, they replaced it with a 906F2!
  9. Silly how companies have different designations for the same thing. I think F represents firm which is the same as being between regular and stiff.

  11. This should be funny... I think mine was about 1 foot?
  12. Ummm.... Get the following message when I try to open it, "This is a private video. If you have been sent this video, please make sure you accept the sender's friend request."
  13. Not quite that easy but I think you know what I'm getting at? These people I'm talking about actually walked around the golf course for the first time in their lives (never been to the range or hit any clubs whatsoever) and scored in the low eighties for their first few rounds... Mind you the sports that they played also bore some resemblance to the game of golf (they were professional 'cricketers').
  14. I only play about once or twice a month. Used to get really annoyed by slower players and at one point thought about taking a yoga pose (sit down with legs behind head and hands in front) to subtly send them the message to speed up a bit. The last few times I've played though I've brought a book or iPod to pass the time. Amazing how much you can get through while waiting. Helps to keep the aggravation level down as well.
  15. I think that this is just an issue of sematics. If I recall correctly, Nicklaus used to interchange his thinking from right/left depending on what felt best at the time...
  16. I think it really depends on the mat itself. A lot of the time the ones that I see in stores are really bad imitations of a green surface on some type of foam which reacts nothing like a real green. On the other hand, g-funk seems to have found something seriously cool...
  17. If your long game is fairly solid you could always try chipping and putting your way around the house to chair/table legs.
  18. You should also recheck your posture. A lot of the time I find that when I am too stooped over it leads to inconsistent/fat contact.
  19. Another thing you could try is to simply grip down on the club. A lot of the time I think amateurs just have trouble dealing with the length of the club.
  20. Other thing you could try is to reduce your spinal tilt away from the target and attempting to reduce the amount of head movement backward on the downswing. In both cases, both moves can increase launch angle and inside out swing path but sometimes this can be taken to extremes which can lead to a push.
  21. Bad wording... Meant minimalisation of weight shift and timing.
  22. I've actually known of professional sportspeople who had good eye co-ordination who were close to doing this in a few years. All you need to do is hit the ball reasonably straight with good distance control, have a decent short game and be able to think your way around the course.
  23. You could always try getting a laser pointer... In fact, some electronic putting trainers have these built in now. Other thing you could try is the old string line or using mirrors to help with alignment. I've even known of people that 'putt' their way around the house by keeping the ball running parallel to the wall.
  24. When my full swing goes awry I either: - go all out in an attempt to get as close to the hole as possible - revert to a 3/4 swing Makes life so much easier when a lot of the timing and weight shift is taken out of the golf swing.
  25. From what I've seen they launch high but then flatten out and penetrate. Feel is also drastically different from other shafts so I suggest you try them before you buy them...
