  1. Haha! His buddy was so mad because he shot a 72 to lead scoring for the tournament but everyone was talking about the hole in one instead...😀. It was amazing to me how quickly the news got around the course. By the time Jacob got to 18 and hit his tee shot, there were coaches from other teams driving over to congratulate him.
  2. So my step son has been playing golf for a quite a while now and is in his senior year of high school. The team has been undefeated this season and has pretty much covered second place by 20 strokes on average. He played in his last district tournament last Friday. He teed up on number 17 which was a 182 yard par 3. As soon as he hit his tee shot, I told my wife "that is pure right there!" It hit the green, took one bounce, rolled about 5 feet, and dropped. Between the people following our group, the people in the group that just left the green and the people in the group right behind us, there were probably 25-30 people that witnessed it. Everyone went nuts. He was so amped up and excited that he couldn't even hit his tee shot on the next hole.He had a stretch, including the hole in one, of -4 through 3 holes. Did I mention this was the exact same course and hole that I got my first hole in one!?! It was a very special moment for me....almost brought me to tears...haha. Pay no attention to my shirt. I wore the loosest shirt in my closet because it was crazy hot...lol
  3. The fast is just what he used as a reset to get started. He didn't look as lean right after the fast as he does now. He's lost a good bit since that fast. Of course, it is much easier to do when you have someone preparing all of your meals and a trainer that you see every day..haha
  4. Nice! That sounded like a fun 9 holes. I made a putter swap this year and it made a world of difference for me. Almost makes me think I should go get a putter fitting...
  5. Here is a quick Face on from today. For some reason the DTL video was messed up. This early extension and flipping crap is about to drive me CRAZY!! I thought for sure it was gone but now it's back. And what kills me is the shots I'm hitting on the range are solid, ball first contact shots, with a tolerable dispersion. My distance has dropped a tad with the latest swing changes, but I'm not chasing distance. I still carry my 9i right at 145. Thoughts? I did just start implementing the latest changes, so maybe the early extension and flip has gotten a little better. I need to compare the two on analyzer and see. One thing I notice in this video is that my hip turn on the back swing is not nearly as much as I have been working on. I think I was so focused on the new drill that I wasn't thinking about turning my hips as much as normal.
  6. Still plugging away and I know I need some video. I am still having some issue with early extension. In my last lesson, my instructor had me start drilling a move to get my right shoulder to stop dropping so much on the downswing and have the feeling that I swing with a more level shoulder plane (not level, just the feeling). It "feels" like I am coming over the top and trapping the ball, but on video the swing looks better. What this seems to do is get me to stop the shoulder stalling at impact and get the shoulders open. Another thing he did (and this is really my main question here) is that he weakened my left hand. Now this feels crazy awkward on the back swing, BUT what I have noticed is MUCH more crisp contact, lower ball flight, and less conscious club face manipulation. I really feel like this will be a good change once the weaker grip feels normal (I come from a pretty strong grip that has me cupped at address). Will the weaker grip cause any issues down the road?
  7. I cannot argue that versus a gym cost for sure. The difference being each class is led by an instructor that they have to pay. I honestly feel like it has helped my game more so than traditional lifting did.
  8. I feel better since starting Crossfit versus the normal bodybuilding or power lifting work
  9. In some cases, I agree. But that's not the norm. All anyone ever hears with Crossfit are the the examples picked from bad gyms. Most gyms are high quality and most likely get better instruction than someone walking into their local 24/7 gyms and starting to lift on their own. Every coach we have is trained by some of the top olympic lifters in the US. Crossfit gets a bad rep because of the bad gyms. So unless you have actually gone to a good gym and experienced it yourself, then as you say above, you really don't know. I have been doing powerlifting and bodybuilding through the last 25 years, so I feel I have a good bit of knowledge and experience on both sides and from that experience, I feel MUCH MUCH better and MUCH more functional doing Crossfit than I ever did just lifting heavy weights Having said that, let's keep this on topic
  10. I disagree. I'm not necessarily saying it's from lifting weights specifically, but if you do no stretching and no mobility work (even if you don't lift weights) you are going to loose some flexibility and range just from getting older, in my opinion. I see ladies in our senior Crossfit group that used to be cheerleaders, athletes, track stars, etc....that are now older and have a huge lack of mobility. I'm not saying that is every case, but I bet it's the majority.
  11. I think it's just a mobility issue. I think you just need to add in daily mobility work and you will be fine. I have seen some pretty big guys that have good swings, but they are flexible. The thing with weightlifting/bodybuilding is that you have to keep up with mobility work or things like this will happen. I can't say from experience because the only size I have gained is not the size you want to gain...lol, but I my workouts days are at a crossfit gym where the emphasize mobility so I haven't noticed any issues.
  12. Done. No second thoughts on this one. Great site and well worth the subscription!
  13. Is there a completed review on the SkyTrak? That will be my next purchase once I get rid of a pool issue.
  14. Not much of an update here. The latest drills that I am working on have me all out of sync or something. I cannot even hit my irons period and I'm usually able to hit them no matter what I'm working on. Kinda got me worried..lol. I even tried going back to the things we worked on the lesson before last (those actually helped my swing more than anything has in a while) and I cannot even hit the ball with those now. I'm hoping there is some uphill to this soon....haha
