    TST Fantasy Golf 2018-19

    I'll give it a go.

    Newbie rapid progress

    I just started this year, my goal was to break 100. I shot a 99 one day and was happy with that. I play with a group of guys who only play once or twice a year and they shoot low 90s normally. I think some people just have a more natural swing and others such as myself have to constantly work on it.

    I would like to see a koepka/Mickelson duo tomorrow.

    The only reason I can think of is Phil has been putting so well this year. Maybe the theory was Phil would carry Bryson on the green and could get them out of trouble if Bryson missed the green which he has been doing. Still I agree with you strange combo.

    Good point shows how observant I am, didn't even notice that lol

    I didn't like that duo, I always thought Bryson was hit or miss this year. When he is on it looks good but when he is off it seems really bad. Wow USA can't buy a put this afternoon.

    I wish the teams had two distinct colored shirts. A lot of guys wearing the dark blue shirts. Throws me off a bit at first glance. Not a huge deal would just like to see some color disparity.

    My Swing (Northwoods88)

    While watching my swing I snapped this still frame. I noticed at this point in my swing my hips appear to be rotated as much as my shoulders. Correct me if wrong but shouldn't my shoulders start rotating then the hips follow after? In other words my hips shouldn't be moving in unison with my shoulders.

    My Swing (Northwoods88)

    Trying to work on my center turn. Still doesn't look pretty but I was able to hit some decent shots on the course today. I feel like I may be standing to upright during my turn. Also my feet maybe to far apart. Just re watched the Videos am I standing too close to the ball? Never noticed it before but I am thinking that may also be the case.

    If you had to choose one (just for fun)

    I think it would be a lot of stress, remember you never will win a tournament. The thought of always chasing a win and never getting it would drive me nuts.

    Good point! I still think I have to go with option B, I golf with friends from work a couple times a month. I don't know if I would want to give that up. Also I am an introvert so I don't think I would like the spot light.

    If you had to choose one (just for fun)

    Tonight as I was practicing I had this thought and found it kind of interesting. So you have to use your imagination but I am going to present two options to you and you can only choose one. Option A: you are given a magic pill that allows you to make a living playing on the PGA tour. You make a good living and have all the endorsements and sponsors you could ever dream of. You compete against the tops players in the world on the best courses in the world. You finish your career with top 10 and top 5 finishes but you will never win a tournament. The flip side is you can never play any local golf with your friends or family again. Option B: You pretty much continue your golf career where you are now, never make it to any professional level. You get to spend your life playing golf in beer leagues with friends and family. You don't make a living from it, no fancy sponsorships or endorsements. I can go back and forth between both options, I think I finally settled on option B. I don't make a lot of money now so I know I can be happy with out ever being rich. I think spending the time with friends and family means more to me. So what option would you choose and why?

    My Swing (Northwoods88)

    Fix a slice with stronger grip?

    My Swing (Northwoods88)

    I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year My current handicap index or average score is: 27 My typical ball flight is: slice The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice with driver, hitting it fat with irons. Figured it was time to post some Videos. It's my first year playing so bear with me here lol. I hit a lot of slices with driver, I tried collecting it by using a stronger grip but now I hit it too far left. I know my entire swing needs help but I will take any and all advice. So just by watching my Videos I will post my impressions ( other then it sucks and I should stick to driving the cart and not the ball) I think I move too much in my swing, I have a hard time staying balanced. I also struggle to get my weight forward.
