  1. I went out to the course today and just thought of letting the club fall naturally down to the ball sort of letting gravity just take over and the contact I made today was much more consistent. Thanks for the help guys
  2. Lol yeah, it's not like im chunking it, or blading it across the green, Im just hitting these greenside shots to like 15 feet, cathcing it a groove or two too high or low all the time where I should be hitting them inside 5 feet. I know a lot of it has to do with feel, but its hard to stay consistent if i'm not catching the sweet spot consistently.
  3. Im having trouble hitting the ball solid from around the green to about 30 yards out, i tend to catch the ball a little thin, and if i try to correct it, it seems i'm catching it a little heavy, I had someone tell me it looked like i was coming in too shallow, too much like a full swing but not sure if thats the case or not
  4. Turns out my Grandma's first cousin was Bert Yancey who use to play on the PGA tour in the 70's and almost one a couple majors. I can't believe nobody in my family told me this until now but I was actually watching the Lee Travino documentarty on the Golf Channel with my uncle and they mentioned his name, and my uncle said oh there's Bert, and I was like you know him? and he then proceeded to tell me how we were related lol. Couldn't believe it, I got to hear lots of interesting stories and how Bert did not care for Jack Nicklaus at all lol.
  5. Sounds like me. I've had so many people ask me why I drop my clubs all the time, and I tell them it's to keep me from breaking them/ throwing them and it's the honest truth. I've only thrown a club once in my lifetime and felt like a complete ass for doing it, so now after a bad shot I just drop it and say colorful string of cuss words and if i'm still mad take my anger out on the teebox by unleashing on a driver. A really long drive makes me feel better even if I'm in an adjacent fairway lol
  6. I'm having a problem pulling the ball, I'm pretty sure its because I'm over rotating my hips, and when i try to correct it by coming inside, im coming out of the shot and blocking it. Does anyone have any swing thoughts or drills to help me because man my swing is in a funk.
  7. I remember thinking he had a lot of potential but I don't think I've heard anything about him in like the past year and a half. Is he still injured?
  8. I'd say abs, and legs have a lot to do with it. Look at a guy like Dustin Johnson, he has a ton of core strength (can do a full swing on a balance ball) as well as leg strength (does one legged squats, and can dunk the hell out of a basketball) While you don't have to be have to be strong to hit the golf ball far, it definitely helps. Look at the long drive competitions, 90% of those guys are JACKED.
  9. Because you have absolutely nothing to blame but yourself. In team sports you can put the blame on your teammates but in golf if you play bad, it's all on you.
  10. I guess I took the question differently. The only time I pick up a golf ball is if I find some in the woods, looking for my own golf ball. (there are trees EVERYWHERE on my home course)
  11. The family business my granddad started has about a 110 yard field I hit those kind of balls and work my wedge game, and once I collect a lot I usually just blast drivers and long irons into the woods. A family friend hunts on the land and said he stumbled across one ball in the woods, and since appearently it was a slow day hunting wise, he said he just started searching the woods for golf balls, he must have brought me back 75 balls lol.
  12. Tiger Woods 9 under Rory 11 under Lee Westwood 8 under
  13. Not really. I listen Keegan as one of my least favorites but I was happy when he won the PGA. I like him being a fierce competitor but man that routine gets on my nerves!!
