    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    I think Kuchar is coming off incredibly cheap here. His media persona would have benefited greatly if he gave the guy 50k which isnt an awful lot to him but would seem like a lottery win to many. I only say it because he won however. 3k would have been absolutely fine if he finished from 2nd to nowhere. The caddie isnt coming off well either imo but Kuchar is coming off worse.

    Thanks for the tip mate. I hadn’t actually worried about the tush line as you call it. I figured the wall drill and keeping the head steady would take care of that on it’s own

    Thanks I’ll practice this drill at home and work on not cupping my left wrist and hopefully post an improved video of my swing soon. Thanks very much for your help Hey phillyk what was the idea of the red line you drew? Were you looking to spot something in particular?

    Thanks for the input. Do you think working on a flat lead wrist and straighter arm in the back swing will help with shallowing the plane? What are the wall drills you mentioned? Thanks in advance

    What do you guys mean when you say lower body stalls? Do you mean I’m not getting my weight forward enough or on time? You think it’s because of my swing plane? Would the overbend in my lead arm and therefore the cupping of the wrist cause the steepness?

    Ya the range I go to has walls quite close. It’s hard to video. I’ll get someone to video the next time I’m on the course.

    Walking Golfers?

    At my local club I’ve only seen one elderly man regularly ride a cart. Everyone else walks pushing or pulling a trolley. Having said that Ireland is not a hot country so it’s rare to never that it would be so hot that you couldn’t walk.

    To be honest that looks like a much better swing than your scores suggest. What do you think causes the scores?

    Which of the 5 simple keys do I need to work on? Am I getting my hands forward enough at impact? I tend to have a very high ball flight.

    That is some great analysis Boogielicious. Credit to you for taking the time to do that.

    I've been Playing Golf for: 18 months My current handicap index or average score is: 17 My typical ball flight is: Slight draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Pull with my irons Here are two videos of my 8 iron. Forgive the faces I make. There are a lot of things I do that I don’t realise I do. Any thoughts? I think it worked this time. Ya this is my 8 iron. I never realised I lifted my left foot or bent my lead arm as much. Any thoughts? Or any tips guys? On my swing in general I mean. My miss with irons tends to be a pull or pull draw
  13. I voted never because I always have some swing thought or two playing a round but that isn’t to say I have a swing thought every single shot because I often rush it with no thought with mixed results. Sometimes I forget about a good swing thought that works well for me and only remember it after I’m finished and am annoyed with myself. As a novice I clearly have too many swing thoughts and should practice more prioritising one piece at a time until it’s ingrained

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    Played a 15 hole stableford club competition yesterday. First time as I only just became a full member. They’ve given me a 17 handicap. Didn’t go great. Was going well up to the fifth hole par five which I birdied after being on in two. Proceeded to scratch the next three holes in a row. Disaster. Finished with 23 points. I had to laugh at the fifth hole though, because it’s winter and the course is so soft my second shot a 5w from 230 yards pitched and stopped 2 feet from where it landed. In the summer that would be gone into the woods behind the hole for sure.
