  1. I am not saying you need it but try the Ping G410. You can set the lie angle flat to stop the hook. I had the same issue. At a plus three I don't know that you will find benefit but it would be interesting to try. You might try the 2 hybrid in place of a driving iron. I be you would find it easy to hit from the deck.
  2. The back swing is a reasonable speed. The transition is slower which allow me to maintain my balance and accuracy with the club. I would bet if I swung hard and swung "easy" and within myself an onlooker would hardly notice. If you were able to measure the tension in my muscles you would see a radical difference.

  4. I was working on my swing in the early spring and I had watched a video about a slow transition a Shawn Clement video. My swing tempo was always fast. On a day when it got really fast my play was a disaster. I was working on a slow transition and trying "moderate effort" swings to learn the feeling. I was hitting on a launch monitor at the time and the numbers were interesting. My swing speed was near normal and my distance was near normal. I decided to work on the slow transition and lower effort swing. First time out on the course with that thought I played an above average round and my misses were very acceptable. As I continued on I started finding the center of the club face frequently which was a new experience for me. After that I picked up distance. Since then my handicap dropped two points. I am having back issues so I don't practice much and still was able to improve. I think if your skill is very high you might be able to contain the extra speed but slowing down allows me to have a better sequence. Food for thought.
  5. I know people that play with that strong grip! Not well but they do it.
  6. If I look at the data the system produces in the app it looks OK. If I look at the app distances in real time and compare it to something I trust more it is wrong. Sometimes very wrong. I have played without it for a couple weeks and it is a bit of a relief, not having to edit the results on every hole.
  7. Thanks for the reply, great information. On of this things I like about Arccos is that it flew under the radar, the pro version looked a little better, no tagging and a black "thing on your belt" not red. I don't know if I want to try a new system. For $100 at least live is not a huge investment.
  8. At the end of the round how many corrections need to be made? Can you look at your phone as you go and fix any errors?
  9. OK, my choice of words was poor. How about the course has several areas where you could get in a situation where you were putting through areas with greater than 4% slope. As I was measuring the greens it became apparent the slopes were more than Aim point was designed for so I measured less and less points. I am not sure of your point? The question was simply is there a logic or mechanism to use the book to judge a putt with greater than 4% slope. Then everyone started saying it was impossible to have greater than 4%? You are formally invited to play and experience it for yourself. I'll buy you a meal and beer after.
  10. I was an Arccos user and recently given it up. I tried to use my Apple Watch linked to the software and the yardages were way off. It made me question all the data. That along with all the extra shots it seemed to add around the green and I had had enough. I see Game Golf came out with a "Pro" unit. I have found some internet chatter and none of it was good about both the hardware and the company. Has anyone tried this?
  11. I measured it with a digital level. I had a putt Wednesday where I got above the hole and had to putt 90 degrees to the pin to have the putt roll 4 feet past from 20 feet. I did hit the uphill putt for par. The person that I was playing with and I then hit several putts each from that spot and my first putt was the best, or at least left the best leave for the second. If I had had my phone in my pocket I would have taken video. I'll try and get some video it is a difficult green. If you get into the rough behind the hole you are pretty much doomed.
  12. I found some photos which might remind you what 9 is. Here is a view from the tee. Right is OB, It is a dog leg right. If you go over the tree's you can aim to the front of the green. Here is a view from the green back left of the green at the tee, The trees on the left third are the ones you have to come over to aim to the valley Here is the green, hard to understand the slope from the photo, that's the men's grill in the background. At the annual invite the crazyness that goes on in the grill at those windows is hilarious. They bet on everything, who will pull the pin, puts chips, sand shots all of it. A better shot of the green, the slope does not translate well into a photo. Since I am posting photos, I was a photographer at the event. We have heather, Fred not the most pleasant guy you ever met. This is a mild green, 14 All the player (except one) were great guys happy to be there really a lot of fun. Funk with his son on the bag Lehman Watson
  13. I think the 15 is a typo. I tried to take a photos. It does not translate well. Here is three, camera level standing at the bottom. 9 is uphill the whole way. If you get above the hole and they get the green speeds up you are in trouble.
  14. Where on 9 is that? If you have to putt through 6 using AIMpoint classic its 6. I don’t understand express, perhaps that is different.
