  1. If feel were real, I'd swing like Erik. But I don't. Even though I feel I do the same as he does. Heck, my practice swing feels the same as my shot but it looks drastically different. We're talking less than 5 seconds between two swings. Perception is not a constant. Remembering feelings and associating them with results is the only way to really make changes. Also, do something often enough and this will feel like the new "normal"; you might then need to feel the total opposite of what you were doing to obtain the same results. Feel ain't real.
  2. I can still hear James telling me to "wait for it" before swinging the heavy mop.
  3. Good god, stop talking, you're making a fool of yourself.
  4. I'm playing with two 1018 Scratch wedges, a 53º and a 58º both in "DD" which are the ones with the most bounce. Erik is right, they don't have enough :-) The grooves do wear awfully quick, and after 18 months they don't spin half as much as they used to. Compare that to a Vokey which will shred most balls even after the same amount of time. The reason why I bought those wedges was that the top line looks great to me and the darkish finish helps in the sun. They were awfully pricey though and now that Edel is making wedges, I wouldn't buy Scratch again unless the price of the 1018 went way down.
  5. Dude, where ARE your armpits? Handle forward, uhm of the freaking ball?
  6. Patrick, if I say 2" is 5.08cm, does that help you picture it?
  7. 1) we all doubt it. 2) we never deviated from the topic, since it's all obviously a joke.
  8. Ah! So Patrick, you admit your studies and statistics have no scientific value whatsoever. Good, that's a start. Now, as the genius you are, I expect you also admit you pulled (pun intended) your statistics out of thin air (trying to stay polite) and that you don't know the difference between units of length and degrees.
  9. Aha! So that's where the razor blade comes into the picture! Of course! I'm going to shave 1mm "open" my custom fitted putter that goes straight because now Patrick57's posts make so much sense! Oh my! You've GOT to write a book, Patrick57! With pictures! And more scientific statistics!
  10. Don't you just love when people say they conducted a scientific experiment? (referring to our genius Patrick57 here)
  11. OK, uhm, eh, OK. Your pulling my leg with that reply, right? Also, I'm curious, why millimeters? Why not minutes of an arc? Or simply, God forbid, degrees? Also, you forgot to specify if your study was conducted during summer or winter? I have on good authority that people tend to push 75~83% of putts when the temperature drops below 12.8°C.
  12. Ok, that's some awesome awesome single person study you're publishing here. Thanks for that, I needed something to open my eyes this morning. Correct me if I'm wrong, but in the metric system world, millimeter is a unit of distance. So how am I supposed to open the club face 1mm? With a can opener? By the way, does your statistic mean that your putts go 20-10% to the right when your face is open -1mm?
  13. Beres is a product line made by Honma, the Japanese maker. Here they also have another line aimed at high handicapper (but still stupidly expensive) called "Athport". There is a Honma shop right in front of my office building and they -always- have special sales going on. I wonder why... The cheapest 6 clubs iron set starts at 120,000 yen and the ones with gold everywhere can fetch upwards of 600,000 yen. I haven't seen the recent prices for their drivers. Those clubs are usually popular with the wealthy senior golfers, as their custom shafts are erring on the soft side (in general, but especially the "Athport" line) and they have countless custom options for shaft colors, head colors, various shiny inserts, etc... Everything is supposed to be "hand made/finished" but to be honest, the difference lies in the marketing and the target audience rather than the performances.
  14. Seems to me that the OP assumes everyone has a backyard or a room big and ceiling high enough to do drills at home. I have neither. Perhaps that's an opportunity to develop a super-compact swing like this guy: The only thing I have room to practice inside my Tokyo apartment is my putting stroke!
  15. grip looks perfect. It was long overdue! Did you use the tyre drill to make him swing like that?
