  1. I played Twisted Gun when I was a jr. The top of a mountain was cut off (old mining mountain) and it resembled linx golf. Fescue, tiny flag sticks due to the wind up there, and 9/18 shared a green. Nicest/coolest course I’ve ever played. It was near the WV/Kentucky boarder.

    My Swing (Slim_Pivot)

    Yep. Just working on getting more. And that’s good. I’d prefer to be on the same page, wasting time is not fun

    @iacas Thanks. I’ll work on getting more left arm depth at a-5. those little swings are all I’m doing.

    My Swing (Slim_Pivot)

    After a week of being injured and then getting new bedroom floors, I was able to make it to a heated driving range and hit real golf balls. My feels... In order to not come over the top. I felt like the club hitched down behind me (like if I pretended to be Rory) as I transitioned my weight to my front foot (pushed weight hard, down, and forward). I also tried to swing out to the right. Really tried to swing on a right facing hula hoop. Setting up the golf balls around me really helped.

    Draw vs Fade: Which is Cooler & Reliable

    Oh my examples. Hogan, jack, tiger, DJ, Koepka, Bubba...my age dictates my experience so a lot of younger guys on my list.

    Draw vs Fade: Which is Cooler & Reliable

    Historically the big power hitters went to a fade. Why would they have done this if it wasn’t more reliable? That being said, Id prefer to hit a draw lol
  7. This may not be the right place for this so sorry in advance. But is out of bounds even a fair rule? I never understood the purpose of stroke AND distance. Off the planet OB is one thing, but that OB at carnoustie (for example) was ridiculous.

    Thanks for the advise. Backswing is my current main priority. And ok I will do that. Thanks! Correction Backswing/early downswing. The stuff under the first noodle I meant.
  9. This crossed my mind too. That drive against at the PGA (against Bob May) that went behind a bush...then a guy ran by and the ball goes bouncing down the cart path...that one was very iffy. Not sure if that was in the playoff or right before it.

    @iacas Before I go back to the store...do you have any tips on building the double-noodle swing station? My first attempt ended in failure and wants to tip over 😒. The joints I got were 90* and 45*. I did get the angles correct...i just had to use more joints in combination. I might just need heavier PVC. No hurry on the reply, I cannot go until the afternoon/evening. Thanks

    My Swing (Slim_Pivot)

    Ok thanks. I couldn’t remember anything about the transition, so I just kept trying to swing way out

    My Swing (Slim_Pivot)

    Two videos from my practice session today. I worked on the drill from my lesson. Setup/ strong grip/ flatter backswing feel (small part, not my current priority)/ swinging out (major priority). It’s hard for me to tell if this was a success or failure. I’m just doing the drill I was told. I do this at least 100 times a day in the mirror when it too cold -and sometimes in my sleep.

    Expected score on par 3 courses?

    27 54 for 18 Lol. But I would stick to the handicap system for what it should be....then Adjust

    Changed My Golf Ball

    I switched to the Titelist AVX this year from the Pro V1X. With all the science coming out about low spin, etc, I decided to try it. Spins less around the green than the other Pro V’s, but it was wet ALL year, so I’m anxious to reassess on firm and fast. All other things being equal, my mid/long irons went farther (7-12 yards). This was great for me because my longer irons wouldn’t go as far as they should at times. So I stuck with it. No complaints I wouldn’t mind trying Bridgestone sometime also...if anyone tried Bridgestone let me know.

    What are Your 2019 Golf Goals?

    My 2019 Goals 1. Improve my swing. I worked very hard last year on this, but did not progress forward. Giving it one more year since I have more systematic instruction. 2. Handicap down to 3. Hung around 7 with zero practice, increased to 9 by trying to improve my swing last year. 3. Improve my lag putting (weakness). 1 3-putt per 18 holes max. 4. Improve wedge play. 100-30 yards.
