  1. I keep trying left hand low but can't seem to stick with it. I've worked on it in practice but default back to traditional every time I get on the course.
  2. We're talking 'bout practice!.... 10-15 minutes a day on my BirdieBall putting green in the basement. I bought an 18' x 4' green and can't say enough about it. Outside of that I get the the range once every-other week. We have a newborn so I'm not getting out much these days!
  3. Absent of an actual fitting by a professional, Ping has three different putter styles based on the arc of your stroke (straight-no arc, slight arc, strong arc). The level of arc is identified on the shaft band of the putter. I'm not sure if they're still carrying it into the newer models but I was just in Golfsmith and there were a ton still on the rack. Anyway - identifying your the arc of your stroke will help you understand what type of putter works best for you. You don't have to buy a ping, but I found it helpful to identify the styles that worked best different strokes. Feel is obviously the most important, but it's also jeopardized if you're not consistently hitting the same area of the putter face. As for me...I'm straight back-straight through...so mallet is best (also verified by a SAM fitting). Slight arc...blade. Strong arc...heel shafted or heavy toe...Wilson 8802 or think Phill Mickleson's staple putter style regardless of the logo stamp over the years. I have an older SC Fastback and love it. Got it used online after trying it out in the store.
  4. Lululemon are the best I've ever had hands down. A cheaper, yet still expensive alternative are the UnderArmor boxer/briefs. You can find them online for $25 (American). In my opinion, even if you splurge for one nice pair...it's well worth the comfort on the course.
  5. I've followed this forum (and a few others) for years and finally decided to join in! I'm in my 30s and I've played golf for the last 20ish years. handicap varies from a 9 to 10. hope to play more over the next few years but reading and posting helps the itch when I can't get out to play!
  6. this is not professional advice but I've played numerous adjustable drivers (almost all of which were from the used section in a golf store). If you enjoy tinkering, they're great but you can also enter a deep dark hole of time wasted on adjusting settings rather than a swing. I would suggest a neutral driver or adjustable club. Find a golfstore where you can test a few different clubs... hit 10+ shots with each, switching back and forth every couple shots.
  7. This is hard to admit, but instead of taking in the scenery and enjoy being outside...I find myself checking work email.
