  1. I was watching the u.s. Open and hear the guys on the golf channel talking about electrolyte pills. They are AWESOMME. I pop about 6 of them at the start of the round an stay hydrated. The heat is no problem at all.

    Karma

    Maybe. You can get your karma under control. No matter how good it feels to throw a club, it's never the clubs fault. The only advice I have is that be it with your driver or any other club, try to feel or perceive a discernible pause at the top of the backswing before you start our downswing. It really won't be visible by the eye but you can feel it. A smooth transition is key for me on the driver and really any club.
  3. Freddie's swing is awesome to watch. I've got to say that If I could duplicate someones swing it would be Louis Oosthuizen's.
  4. When I hear an announcer talk about maintaining the right knee flex, I assume they mean that the player should maintain the same flex they have at address throughout the entire swing. Paul's right knee does maintain "some" flex but it visibly does straigten to some degree during the backswing as do most if not all good ballstrikers. If someone has a video of a good ballstriker maintaining the exact same flex throughout the swing, I'd be interested in seeing it.
  5. I'm gonna try this method next time I need to lob one under a tree.
  6. Give the Adams Idea Pro Black series a try.
  7. When he said it, Charlie was right up on a trap. His right foot was almost in the trap. I think he was talking about the the balance needed to hit that shot. I think he thought Charlie might fall back into the trap.
  8. that Charlie Wi is one of those Tilt and Stack guys and they have a tendency to get stuck on the right side. Now I haven't been learning the S and T very long but I know that is a completely ridiculous statement. You would think that a person would be educated on a topic before they would elaborate. I know it happens all the time but it's kinda crappy.
  9. Just heard Frank Nobilo say "Charlie Wi is one of those Tilt and Stack guys and they have a habit of getting stuck back on the right side" Now I haven't been learning the SandT very long but I know that's a ridiculous statement.
  10. Is "evolvr" catching on? I've been reading the S&T; book and implementing elements of the swing with great results so far. Evolvr sounds like a excellent tool. Anyone have any feedback they would like to share? Also, if a person signs up on the monthly plan and decides to drop it when the winter non golfing monts come along, would there be another 40 dollar fee to get it started again? Thanks
  11. Going by just what you'r saying, Your shots are starting straight and then drawing? Correct? If that's the case, you're impact position is square and you're swinging on an inside to out path that produces the draw. Simplest change is just open your clubface a little and swing the same. May have to line up a little right of target.
  12. OK, so I went to the range this morning and hit a small bucket. I hit a 6 iron the whole time and basically went to the Stack and Tilt book on page 29 and only tried step 1 which is to put your weight on the front foot. Well I'm pretty impressed. Out of 45 or so balls, 35 or so were solid 5 yard or so draws and probably 10 mishits due to my tempo getting too quick cause it is so damn hot and I guess I was hurrying. I never would have thought that merely moving your weight around like that could have such an impact. Looking forward to more practice.
  13. I got my copy of "The Stack and Tilt Swing" yesterday in the mail and just let me say that 11.00 on ebay beats the hell out of 30 bucks in a store. I've only read the first two chapters so far and I've got to say that it's making pretty good sense so far. I think I'll try a little at the range this weekend.
  14. If Rory's tempo and timing is on, and he is smart enough to try to learn a little bit from Mr. Watson during the first round, I'm going with him.
