  1. so did I - was the classic gym rat with the weights before taking up golf. Lots of power not too much precision in the beginning. Over time I've changed workout routines to still get in strength work with weights but I've incorporated lots of body weight work, cardio, and flexibility work. As a result (and I'm sure golf equipment advances help) I'm tons more accurate. had my best drive over the weekend that measured 320 in the heat and firm conditions. I usually carry about 280. In all I've been working out since I was 26, I'm 56 now. So I think weights should be a part of an overall fitness plan
  2. check out https://www.golfleaguetracker.com I just joined a 9-hole league and this is what they use. Can't vouch for it either way, I haven't used it much yet...maybe it'll work for you
  3. How many saves does that make for Tiga? *sheesh* if he can just position himself better off the tee.
  4. seriously. Still, I'd like to see Mr. Woods go on a birdie run...course seems pretty soft, making the fairways play wider. will the sun come out tomorrow and dry things out?
  5. Beast Koepka starts his birdie run!
  6. played 9 on monday, someone had these on and they looked great and very comfortable. I'm considering a pair myself IGNITE NXT SOLELACE Golf Shoes | PUMA Golf The IGNITE PWRADAPT gives you the power to adapt. More Traction + More Comfort = PWRADAPT.
  7. @DeadMan I missed that - thanks for pointing that out. In the end, whatever gets you going - gets you going I guess. Still I think Beast Koepka will be a factor. especially if his iron game is on. Don't think a ton of drivers will be required, but the greens are a bit on the smaller side I think.
  8. FOX missing the opportunity to use Koepka to promo the Open is totally careless, my jaw is still open on this. I mean sheesh... maybe it points to the fact that FOX is not ready to broadcast major golf tourneys, maybe this is a sign that the telecast and commentary will be mediocre??? I mean has FOX ever done a great job yet?
  9. @iacas @boogielicious many thanks! I've been using the impact snap and its helped, but sometimes I just can't tell especially with the shorter clubs
  10. @iacas could you explain how to use the string, I've heard of this but it somehow escapes me
  11. Many moons ago, I recall playing Bethpage Black for the first time and got a pull cart. Big mistake, pulling up and down the elevations was brutal. After that I preferred to carry. And because there was no water on the course and a snack shack you saw only twice (finishing #5 and again coming up #12) I carried plenty of water. By the time you got up #15 you were done for the day. These days I use a push cart and haven't looked back.
  12. Looking forward to this Open, not only to see what the USGA does with the course and how it plays but because I checked this off my bucket list in 2012 - stayed just off the 18th green. Shot 87 missed birdie on 18 by 1/2 inch... I'll also be watching to to see what Beast Keopka does, would luv to see Tiger hoist the trophy too...
  13. A private course has not even been a possibility for me. Yet, assuming I can afford it and had the time, I think that would be a sure way of improving my game. I don't get out to play as often as I'd like (used to before the kids came along) That said, when I can play I usually head off the the course late in the day say 2pm or after on a weekend when the course is empty...and viola! Private course on the cheap! I play pretty fast, so depending on the daylight I can finish pretty easily.
  14. I'm a IT consultant specializing in software development. I don't get a chance to play as much golf as I'd like, but I'm serious about my game which is trending in the 12 handicap range.
