    My Swing (nevets88)

    Bought the changes to the course, shot 44 short game rusty, driver was good, much more controlled, pretty much all nGIRs, focused on the one thought, feel that stretch at 4. Getting same distance feeling like less effort although that stretch at 4 takes energy out of me more when at the range. Don't like the chicken wing at 8-9 but will focus on that later, want to make new feeling at 4 automagic.

    Does Modern Golf Instruction Always Help?

    I took lessons way before instruction underwent its transformation and didn't get that much better and now with video and radar, my swing is by leaps and bounds better even though I'm older and more importantly, I understand a lot more, most lessons circa 2000, I was not quite certain the why of what the they told me what to do. Granted, I think there were good teachers as you go back further in time, but the were much harder to find.

    Why Do You Play Golf? A Two Option Poll

    But that majority of the time I'm not shooting lower scores is the process of working towards shooting lower scores, which is fun? My head hurts. I dunno, it's complex, I have a complex relationship with this game. Maybe if I got a look at that Twitter thread, it might help me understand having fun vs getting better, better.

    Why Do You Play Golf? A Two Option Poll

    The fun part for me is the swing is a Rubik's Cube and I'm still trying to get all the colors to match up, getting out into the sun on the grass with the people is definitely fun, but as boring as it sounds, I think I enjoy the process of learning new things and building up the knowledge, which in turn should translate to better scoring and requires getting out into the sun on the grass with the people. It's all kind of connected.

    Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    The font of the iron numbers is so... modern.
  9. I mean I guess you could just look at a photo sequence, but video is so much more dominant in teaching nowadays, guessing this is what kids nowadays would prefer using.

  12. For some reason I thought Day switched, and I thought McIlroy was indie. Totally forgot about that commercial with McIlroy and the curved face thingy.
  13. A long time ago, I really liked Sergio Garcia's swing but have long since learned to do everything NOT to emulate his swing.

    Torrey Pines Local Rule

    Not sure whether this belongs in rules or tour forum, so put it here. This was posted in reddit, guessing it's very recent. Growing the rough for 2019 Farmer's?

    What Is This Thing that Holds the Phone?

    Ah yes, that could be some cloth fuzzy material in the middle of it. Did a search on professional smartphone holder and found that the nomenclature is rig. That circular thing is probably to hold a lens? Amazon.com : Beastgrip Universal Lens Adapter & Rig System for Smartphones : Camera & Photo Amazon.com : Beastgrip Universal Lens Adapter & Rig System for Smartphones : Camera & Photo I guess there are products where an iPhone can access an external HD via BT? Maybe that's not an iPhone. Oh wait, that's not a hard drive, that's an LED light.
