  1. Day 25 Footwork day! I spent several minutes, several times today working on my footwork. Over the years I've notice my footwork tends to be an area where I can lose it pretty quickly. It's super easy to pick it up on video. When it gets bad, it tends to get really bad, really fast.
  2. Day 24 I got the overspend training super speed golf sticks out for the first time since hurting my tailbone. It went well. I purposefully didn't measure my swing speed. I just checked to see if I could do the movements without pain. I have to say, it went okay.
  3. Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach. My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it. Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season. Thanks to all who responded to this thread. One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training.
  4. Day 23 YAY!!! I hit full shots at the range. My injury is healing faster than expected. My swing is a mess but at least I'm not in pain.... Most of the time I hit 40 balls with the driver. I worked on a drill I haven't done in ages. Basically with about a 60% swing you try to hit 5 off the toe. Then hit 5 off the heel. Then try to middle 5 in a row. Then do it all again with about a 75% swing. Then do it again with a full swing. (Of course the last set was 3 off the toe, 3 off the heel, and 3 off the middle. Otherwise you run out of balls in a 40 ball mini-bucket.)
  5. Sometimes this is called a Telehandler, and sometimes its called a Rough Terrain Fork Lift. It all depends on where you live.
  6. Day 22 Got to take full swings today. First time since injuring my tailbone. It felt pretty good. it will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning. Funny, putting a ball on a tee, or plucking it out of the hole still hurts a lot.
  7. Day 21 Putting down a ruler. I know boring, right? I also worked on club face positions at first parallel. Did this with Driver and 7 iron. Looking forward to being able to swing "for real" again. Maybe next week?
  8. I would say you should try both... I know a cop-out. BTW - please post a link to the dollar driver club. I'd be interested in checking it out.
  9. Yeah, I've always felt that as long as you have something reasonably descent to practice/play with; then get out there and practice/play. In all likelihood your swing will change a lot during your first few weeks/months playing. I surveyed my golfing buddies and nearly all of them started with hand-me-down clubs. Oddly, I was the exception to that. I bought a $150.00 set of Knight Centauri Boxed Set. (I literally bought them on the way to the golf course for company league night.) I played the driver/3 wood/5 wood from that set for about a year, and the irons for about 4 or 5. I don't think Knight still makes men's golf clubs, but I have fond memories of that set.
  10. I found this really interesting. I have people ask me all the time, I want to start playing golf, what kind of clubs should I buy. I always answer "pretty much anything that gets you out there." Moral of the story. Get a reasonably repeatable swing then go out and get fit for clubs.
  11. Day 20 I came up with a great new inspiration today. My kids were playing with hulu-hoops. So I waited until they were done then set them out in the yard as targets. Hit wedges to hulu-hoops set at 10, 15 and 20 yards. Kinda cool. Plus I think I can move that drill indoors when the weather gets ugly. Maybe put the hoops at 5, 10 and 15 feet?
  12. One of my favorite local courses is hosting a "Big Hole" tournament. I personally do not enjoy big hole tournaments. I've seen 8 inch cup tournaments and 12 inch cup tournaments. They are just not my cup of tea. It's funny because I enjoy other slightly odd tournaments. I like Hickory Tournaments. I like midnight tee-off tournaments. I've even played in a couple of tournaments in the winter snow. All fun. The big hole thing for some reason doesn't work for me.
