  1. I have one I'd sell but not sure if it would be worth it to ship. Shipping would be probably as much as it is worth.
  2. I use my cart most of the time. It is easier, don't have to worry about weight and can carry lunch. I really want an electric one but thats a little above my means right now. Now that is walking in style. It isn't a shape thing, just an easier thing. I'm looking to play well, not get the best workout I can.
  3. Why? Because it just isn't that easy to hit it far and straight. We do have jobs and lifes outside of golf. And are you talking flying it 250 or hitting it 250 in the middle of august. Two totally different things. You need to play a bunch to play well IE hit the center of the club face consistantly and it the correct direction. I'd take 230 and in play everyone instead of coming after it hard and being everywhere. Flying it 250 is a big drive in real life, not on the internet.
  4. Those two swings above have nothing in common. The thin guy has a nice looking move.
  5. I don't hate the car, I just hate the attitude of the drivers. Buddy, you really aren't saving the earth. I love saving something, and thats called money and thats all your doing. It makes me kind of want one. But I associate arrogant people with that car so I couldn't do it.
  6. Right now I'm at the end of 4th week of this program. Here is the website: stronglifts.com The program is very simple. Lift three days a week (MWF typically) Alternate between workout A and B. Example week 1 do A B A week 2 B A B so on. 12 weeks A) Squat, Bench, Bent over row. B) Squat, overhead press, deadlift all lifts are 5x5 except deadlifts is 1x5 not including warmups which is detailed on the website. Start light and add 5 pounds every workout on every lift except deadlift you add 10. Focus is on form, depth (no half squats) Then when you fail you try again 2 times then deload 10% and build back up. I'm very happy so far. I'm a novice lifter and for sure seeing results. Losing weight, feeling stronger, getting results fast. I've worked out quite a bit in the past 3 years on and off and this is the quickest I've seen results. Its useable strength that for sure will translate into golf. The stability and core strength needed for all the lifts and overall strength I'm confident will help in mantaining balance and give me the ability to swing better. Right now my weights are 185 squat deadlift, 115 bench row, 75 overhead press. Its getting heavy fast. Hoping to not fail for a few weeks but squats and the press are challenging. Any questions welcome but I'm not an expert. Just an easy program to follow that seems to be helping me in changing my body.
  7. Wait, I'm not a racist, I'm young, I have no issues with gays and them having the same rights as opposite sex couples, but I'm conservative? The things that matter to me are the economy, the economy, the economy. And the left does nothing to grow wealth. They (most) think its wrong to be rich and they don't deserve it and don't pay there fair share. But the facts are that the top 10% pay 80% of the taxes. And who was in office during the civil rights era? Dixie Crats, there not racist. Only evil republicans. Go Obama.
  8. So Mr Desmond, where do you get your "facts"? NY Times, CNN. I'm not saying that fox isn't biased, but every news outlet is one way or another. To be informed you have (opinion) reads lots of different points of view. It seems as though you say things are facts from liberal news sources and that conservative ones are rubbish. I don't know how anyone can think Biden won. Being rude, laughing at the opponent, interupting. A 12 year old could have better manners and does.
  9. 75, 3 over. 40, 35. Tees one up, right at 6500. I miss that golfer. This was around 4 years ago. Fox run golf course at kenton county.
  10. I mark the ball. Clean the ball, use the line on the ball for aim, no practice strokes, step in looking at the hole, set the putter behind the ball, one look at the hole, gone. I might read the putt depending if its a green I know or not. I trust my feet and my eyes for the read. If I'm confused then I might take a look at a different angle. But 9 times out of 10 the way I read it initally is the way I will try to hit it.
  11. These are facts? NY times, come 0n you can't be serious. And its an opinion article.
  12. By all accounts Romney crushed Obama in the debate. Liberal and Conservative outlets alike. I really couldn't watch much. Obamas voice makes me want to cut off my ears. And his policies have done nothing for our future.
  13. Its impossible to describe exactly how I'd play that shot. I'd have to see the lie, feel the ground, on the upslope or not, can I get the club under the ball, etc. I might play a mini bunker shot, a chip type swing with the face way open, a almost no swing swing. (just hinge the wrist and drop the club on top of the ball with little follow through). The one consistant thing is its going to be a guess and the ball will not have much spin. I'd just practice this a bunch. It is something you can do in your back yard or wherever.
  14. Who didn't dope? Modern times, who is a more dominant cyclist? Sorry I don't know the sport well. My bad, didn't know we had to be experts on something to comment. And shorty, you have some of the nastiest post ever. You must be a real peach to be around. You don't have to insult people.
  15. I just put my net back up tonight. I don't have a camera, training aids. What am I trying to accomplish? I am trying to get rid of a very bad habit of breaking down at the top of the swing, getting the club in the place that the only thing I can do is hit is big cuts and pulls. I went from being a consistant player to a wild player. I've had ok rounds with the horrid move, but I've had rounds where I couldn't get off the tee at all. I know this more compact move works, I just have to train myself to make it on the course. I don't know what it is about that stupid ball, but as soon as I get over it I make a terrible move. It has bleed all the way down the bag into my strength (wedges). Hopefully I can start making a better swing. I am using the net to train myself to swing in a more controlled fashion thus control the ball better. Hopefully I can get back to being an 81-82 machine. I know it isn't great, but it was fun playing that way.
