  1. Been awhile since I posted but I j ust got a new GoPro and had an impromptu after work range session (excuse the jeans). I actually like most of the things about my swing right now, but one issue I have had since I started golfing a few years ago is that my head turns away from the ball at the top of my swing. Is it something I can fix, or is it lack of flexibility? Also if you have any other comments about my swing, they are welcome! Misses right now are pulls, hooks and the occasional pull/hook. Clubs are 7i, 3i, & Driver. Be sure to watch in HD ;-)
  2. Ok, even though all was well I had to tinker with my swing. Here is the new takeaway...I was able to get after it a bit more without fear of a big hook which was nice. I almost think my takeaway is a bit long and I come just a tiny tiny bit OTT. Any opinions other than I need to lose some weight? Lol
  3. Dan Kochevar is also a very good coach at the Bensenville dome.
  4. Fellow Chicago guy here and softball player. I play 12" though... welcome to the site!
  5. Good work Boogie. Are they giving free lessons there? Is this the one at the Rosemont? How's the equipment selection?
  6. Latest swing video...hitting everything pretty well. My misses are mainly from being lazy and not turn hard right. I hit a toe'y duck hook when I do that. I've also put on about 20lbs! Time to get in the gym, lol.
  7. Highlands of Elgin is another course at the top of my list out that way. Lots of fun holes there.
  8. Mid march 45 degree and breezy would feel like Maui compared to this BS weather we have right now n
  9. Schaumburg Golf Course is pretty much my home course. I used to work in Schaumburg and player there 3-4x a week. Got a new job and a baby and I'm lucky to play 18 once a week...practice more than play these days.
  10. Count me in if you set something up....
  11. I used to always wear golf shoes. Now I only wear them when it's damp out. If its dry I prefer to just wear a comfortable pair of running shoes.
  12. I'm pretty sure Sabbatini wears the hat because of a cancer scare he had.
  13. I would be interested in a round. I don't work Tuesday/Thursday most weeks but I can sneak out early the other days. Lmk what works for you.
  14. I've been as low as 2, but haven't been practicing at all this season. The outside takeaway is basically an over correction of my previous flippy inside takeaway. As soon as I get it balanced out, I should be gtg.
