    Golf In Relation With Other Sports

    @Benit0 If your shot, in hockey, goes high and/or wide away...what do you think happened? The biggest difference between a hockey shot and a golf shot is that you don't hood the blade in golf. A golf shot is more like a back-handed swipe...keep it off the toe and turn through to the net to get the blade square. Yeah...there is a bit of hooding...but not so much as with a slap shot or wrister. Like hockey, you propel the object with your legs, hips, and torso. The arms and hands are just along for the ride.

    Short, Downhill Breaking Putt Strategy

    Each attempt is a unique adventure. My latest strategy is to imagine the ball hitting the stick and dropping in.
  3. Legit or not...how do you like it?
  4. I swing thru the rubber tee a half dozen times, or so, to wake up. Then I swing a 7 iron until I get a couple good looking shots. I repeat with a 4 iron then with a hybrid. That's it...20 balls at the most.

    Redefine Loose Impediments

    Maybe I ought to rent a Bobcat instead of a golf cart. That impediment may not be loose now...but it is 'fin' to be.

    What is Holding You Back (In a Few Words)?

    The lack of extremes. I didn't grow up poor enough to have to claw and scrape for every morsel; nor was I handed everything on a silver platter. I tell ya...it's been nearly tough. The people better off, and worse off than me, do not understand what a struggle being ordinary can be.

    Do You Play with a Phone in Your Pocket?

    The fewer places my phone might be the better. Mine stays in the car. The last time I left it in my golf bag it took me a week to find it.

    Unsolicited Shot/Swing Advice

    Unsolicited advice doesn't bother me...but I don't tell other people how to play.

    Lie Angle Question

    The club could be too short. Moving the head farther away would flatten the effective lie.

    Super Blood Wolf Moon

    Make certain your golf clubs are aligned properly. This will not happen again for a couple years.

    Putting as You Age

    My problem isn't putting as I age so much as it is aging while other people putt.

    Club advice on-line: why do it

    It isn't just golf clubs. We have all been trained, since birth, to suspect that one particular product is superior to others of the same ilk. It is reasonable, therefore, when contemplating a significant purchase, to solicit the advice of those we assume have a more nuanced understanding. It is odd, however, that the really important decisions in life (like which bathroom tissue to buy) are most often made without consultation. Excepting cartoon bears that is.
  13. Of course it is legal. I have two putters that will do that: one I bought and one I made. They are particularly useful for us dew-sweepers...no need to protect the grip from moisture. And there is the theatrical aspect...which is kind of cool.

    Will the New Flagstick Rule Become a Fiasco?

    I think that, like GPS, it will become less and less an issue over time.
  15. Get yourself a cheap pair of calipers and measure the tip diameter. Most driver/fairways are .335. There was a time, however, when manufacturers increased the tip diameter to .350 and, with Clevelands in particular, as much as .400. Chances are yours are .335. A .335 tip is approximately 23/64ths...Check that...more like a fat 11/32nds. My bad.
