  1. Practice swinging to a metronome (you can get free ones that work on your phone). Count the beats on the way back and the pause. 1....2....3..&..4 1, 2, 3 are backswing (backswint ends at 3) & is the pause 4 is the downswing From my music background, I can tell you that changes are when people tend to speed up, that's why I put the & in--to keep you on tempo. Otherwise you are likely to go: 1....2....3..4
  2. I'm afraid to ask what you do wear in the summer.
  3. They are also authority figures. Unfortunately, there are people who will not obey an authority figure who is nice. Hence, the reputation of police for being stern.
  4. As the old saying goes: when your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. The first step in diagnosing a problem is eliminating the easy stuff (computer won't start? make sure it's plugged up and turned on before you rip out the power supply and install a new one). It would seem to me that the easy first step for the OP is to determine if it's a hardware problem. Try out several drivers in different configurations and see if the problems occur with every one. If it does, then he can start tinkering with his swing.
  5. My point was, the others are nice, because they know that's the route to getting a tip. Since rangers never get tipped (no matter how nice they act), they have no incentive to act nice.
  6. How often do the rangers get tips vs the others listed?
  7. It's turning out to be a blistering hot summer, and we're not even to the hottest month, which has gotten me thinking of ways to beat the heat. Is it better to wear long pants to block the sun, or shorts to allow more air flow? I've always worn shorts, but I'm rethinking my options. Also, any recommendation of long golf pants?
  8. 1: Practice on grass 2: Practice 1/2 speed Focus on consistent ball striking. Not distance, not direction, just consistent contact. Note I said 1/2 speed, not 1/2 swing. Take a full swing, but let your downswing be slower than normal. One way to overcome performance anxiety is to livestream your practice session to Facebook. Have you tried that yet?
  9. Can you tell me why? The link between sodium and high blood pressure has been debunked: No Association Between Salt And Blood Pressure, Study Finds Sodium has long been labeled the blood-pressure bogeyman. But are we giving salt a fair shake? A new study published in the American Journal of... On the other hand, low salt levels are linked to things like cramps, mental confusion and irregular heart beat. Sweating depletes your electrolytes (of which salt is one). I have bouts of AFib, and I've been told by my doctor to absolutely not allow my electrolyte levels (including salt) to go low.
  10. You should start the day before drinking water.
  11. And how did Joe expert drive the ball? Are you sure he wasn't just trying to play head games with you? If you were a pro, with unlimited time to practice, I would say you should fix this, because you might be able to improve your driving, and every bit counts for a pro. But, as an amateur, if you are consistently hitting it 270-280 and keeping it on the fairway, I'd guess there are other areas of your game that need more attention first.
  12. Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's record, but I still think Ruth was a better player.
  13. Maybe it's the angle, but (in the first video) it looks to me that your right elbow moves backwards during your backswing and ends up on the right side of your body instead of out front.
