  1. What do you call the guy who graduated dead last in his medical school class? --> Doctor. What do you call the guy who dropped out of high school and who fixes your car? --> Mechanic. What do you call the guy who wins a PGA tournament with "GIMMIC" clubs? --> Winner. Here are some others who didn't graduate from college: Steve Jobs Richard Branson Dave Thomas David Green Larry Ellison Kevin Rose Michael Dell Rachael Ray The following is a quote from the article 8 Hugely Successful People Who Didn't Graduate College:
  2. “From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.” ~ Arthur Ashe I overheard the golf coach at my daughter's golf camp say that he can get any girl with average golf skills a scholarship to college. But I thought to myself, what about the rest of the aspiring young golfers out there? So here is my way to help give back -- the first (of hopefully many) golf scholarships for high school/undergraduate students who are on their school's golf team. The $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to the best golf essay submitted. The golf essay topics may include, b
  3. That's only a couple hours from my house -- I may have been there if I'd realized that this was going on -- please include me in the next outing!
  4. I went through the same experimentation phase with my "standard" clubs when I first began thinking about single length clubs a couple years ago, and as @inthecup mentioned, the results were not good -- the gaps were not good, the swing weights were different (because the head weights were different), lies were wrong, etc. But, I saw enough of an improvement in ball striking (i.e. not hitting fat as often on the long irons) that I tried the Pinhawks (ValueGolf). Aaron @ Value Golf has been selling Pinhawks for a couple years, but increasing demand for single length irons seems to outs
  5. I guess it depends on how many things are wrong with a particular swing -- my experience with GolfTec years ago was that they seemed to pick one random thing to work on each lesson. Since I was doing several things wrong in my swing, fixing one thing at a time meant that I went from making (bad) contact to completely mis-hitting the ball for months and months since only parts of the swing were being fixed. If your swing is closer to where it needs to be, working on one thing at a time makes sense, but if you're over-the-top, reverse-pivot, flipping hands, and over-swinging all at the same
  6. Single Length clubs are not intended for professional golfers like Vinsk -- so if you're a 9 handicap or better like he is, don't even try single length clubs because you don't need them. Actually, I believe that single length clubs are a disadvantage for professional golfers since the descent angle is more shallow on the longer irons than "standard" irons, meaning that they don't stop as quickly on the greens as standard long irons. Here's my statistics: Using standard length irons (most of my life): Avg score: low 100's Using single length irons (last 2 years): Avg score:
  7. By now you've probably heard about Single Length irons -- if I had to describe Single Length irons with one word, it would be: simplicity. There is no intellectual property or new technology involved because single length irons are simply irons with same length shafts, same weight heads, and slightly different lofts — that’s it! You get the benefit of a single swing plane, single swing tempo, and single ball position which simplifies your game and improves your scores. ------------------------------------------------------ Someone once said: "You ca
  8. I believe that it's called a "hail mary"
  9. Yeah, I get that -- I wasn't really clear -- what I was trying to say is that it seems like the longer irons end up 20% shorter and the shorter irons end up 10% shorter, maybe due to the difference in compression that different lofted clubs cause in the range limited balls.
  10. Also keep in mind that a 10-20% shorter ball flight is more noticeable on the longer irons/woods/drivers that on the shorter clubs, probably something to do with how much the ball is compressed by the lower lofted clubs.
  11. I have the same issue (using Chrome) -- I just edit the post and delete everything from the quoted box except the first few lines to fix.
  12. Yeah, he seemed to play better when he was single and had lots of time to practice -- I remember an interview around that time after he won a tournament that he'd been practicing all the time since he didn't have anything else to do. Newly married + $300 million over the next 10 years = less practicing Less practicing + new clubs = less winning
  13. Over the past 20 years of "recreational" golf, I have chosen to ride 95% of the time and have played 18 holes. However, over the past year or so, I've found myself playing more 9 hole rounds and have chosen to walk most of the time (recently invested in a nice push cart). From a pro/con standpoint, walking obviously is more healthy, but I find that I'm not playing as well in general -- what is your preference/experience with walking vs. riding? (Obviously I'm talking about walk-able courses -- there's a course near me where the distance between greens/next tees seems as far as t
  14. Second that -- I'm guessing that the difference between hitting and missing the green at 100 yards is only a couple degrees of club face open/closed, which is a tiny amount.
  15. Straighten the right knee, but not completely, right? My current instructor tells me not to completely straighten the right leg because it will prevent me from shifting the weight forward properly.
