  1. Is there anything wrong with a 2 o clock bent over stance ? I've been Bending more and more forward and noticed 2 o clock is my sweet spot. I'm closing to the ball and I feel I strike it more solid on center every time. It even improves my body turns. is 2 o clock a flaw or bandaid or I can play with this ? I used to be really upright somewhere between 12 and 1 that caused triceps to always be connected to my chest but felt it my swing was very flat. its funny how many things can creep into your game without thinking. You really gotta take journal notes and review once in a while to make sure you haven't developed anything new. putting stance is like 2 to 3 o clock now
  2. just ordered my LSW, hope i get it before my Spain trip, so i have something to read!
  3. It made it to my bag! I tried it out and omg i never hit so far in my life. Although I still fade a bit, still predictable and that sound from being hit correctly is so sweet!
  4. @saevel25, thanks for the link. I'll try this tomorrow and see what kind of results i get. Reading the other comments and watching the video, I might actually be hitting too hard and shaft too far forward (I'm picturing my stance now and i think my hands are past my left hip, but i don't remember being taught with so much shaft lean. Wonder how that snuck in naturally). My ball tends to pull left and low when i lose my tempo. And speeds off the green.
  5. Technique for chipping? This is the one I learned from the local pro. address the ball, open face slightly, aim left slightly, weight over the left side (with head over/past the left foot). Stroke it with shoulders only no wrist or hand movements. 3 inches back, 3 inches forward. Use speed for distance not stroke length. If you need to go over a bunker, open a bit more and hinge, 3 inches back, hold hinge 3 inches forward. I tried choking up but then i feel very cramped like a ball very low to the ground. Not very comfortable for me. I have a very upright posture.
  6. Mizuno 56 degree MP - RAW Black Ox, I think they're pretty old. Grooves are still in good shape. After the above posters, I started paying attention to my pitch/chip shots and I always aim for the middle. I think I need to aim closer to the front and allow for the roll. Seems no matter how hard i try, i'll get the middle though.
  7. Good points and I prefer to keep the same balls. Higher spin will cause my slice to go over two fairways lol. Right now I have a controlled fade that I can predict.
  8. Tried that and I get a pathetic no follow thru 1 yard shot lol. I see peoples people check check up and roll maybe 1 yard!
  9. My 35-75 yards chip shots are rolling off the green, almost always... it will land toward the center or before center and will roll the other half of the green and stop outside the green am I not compressing enough? I take a divot but it never seems to stop. It will look good then roll forever. Using Nike mojos and top flight d2 putting also seems to be rolling too much. I am always rolling past the cup. About 2 to 4 yards past no matter how light or short the stroke is. Always adding 2 more stoke to my score. If I can just get the ball to sit and/or lag properly to to hole. I'll be able to break 100 consistently
  10. Please recommend me a carry bag, I've been searching and searching and I can't get one that I like. I like the jones bag but i think the mouth is too big? I only play with 6 clubs (driver, 5i,7i,9i,SW,Putter), I carry often but occasionally will ride, if partner or group is all riding. Looking for the following specs No stand/plastic added weight 5-6 Inch mouth 1 or 2 divider (i hate my graphic shaft rubbing on iron heads) Ridge opening mouth for easy club removal Light weight Any material 1 or 2 straps Current Bag is the maxfli sunday bag (my favorite bag, i use it everyday, but wish they had a non stand version) I also have a Wellzher 0.9 Sunday (Collapsible), but the mouth closes itself and hard to pull clubs out, very unbalanced. Also have the Titlest Sunday Carry which was close to perfect but the mouth is too big for 6 clubs only
  11. Ah good stuff, I do notice that i naturally fade when i'm tired/anxious or nervous. But when i'm playing my best, It will go straight or a very very small draw if the ball is above my feet I was also reading up on finish position of hands. Do i reach for the sky to make it draw more? Since you can only reach for the sky by going inside out?
  12. So I've been reading that in order to draw the ball you need a closed stance to the target line and a slightly open face target line... but it if you hit the ball straight with neutral square stance to target line , wouldn't closing the stance just make to straight but out to the right with the swing path like you just picked a new target more right than intended?? am I missing something here ?
  13. went to the local used club shop for the titlest 975D came back with a Titleist 975D Titleist 983K Callaway Hawkeye Golden Bear (some type of jack nickalus driver) for 30 bucks out the door. I really only wanted one, but he kept giving them to me to try and said just take them all and try it all on the course. Which do you recommend to play with ?
  14. so many options! I might have to buy them all! I got a used club store locally and can pick up any one of these drivers for 10-30 bucks
  15. i dont see an issue with playing and being recommended older drivers? What is the point of your post? I never said technology was bad or against it, just wanted to try out some older tech stuff and want some recommendations of people who have favorites.
