  1. Time to break out the green paint.
  2. I agree with this. I don’t get why they wanted to force a non driver teeshot to hit the fairway. I can attest that being left here sucks. Yea, it only changes the angle to the hole. It might matter more with wind direction, but I think they could consolidate the tee boxes. Maybe one way left and one way right. Not a big fan of this hole. It’s a big safety issue with the tee shot to a blind landing area. I didn’t like that my 70 yard shot ended up in the rough when I pushed it like 5 yards right. Not a fan of blind shots to these sort of greens.
  3. Create a my swing thread and post a down the line view. It could be that you are just not turning your body well enough. Hard to say what is causing your issues with out seeing your swing.
  4. My good game, I probably can shoot in the low 80's or high 70's.

    Depends on how serious you take a 2-ft putt. If you go through your routine, you might add 5-10 minutes? Just guessing. Probably more uncommon than just giving putts.
  6. I think what I am going to start on is going to be the same for me. Swing left for everything, lol.
  7. Looks like your shoulder and hip pitch changes in the downswing to very flat. Not sure if maybe feeling like your right hip and right shoulder going down at the ground more, or your left hip and left shoulder going up more will help keep the club from rerouting so much.
  8. Depends on the golfer. Some might feel like getting the arms down sooner will help. Others might feel the hips. It's what ever feel works to produce a consistent swing. If you want specific advice, post a video of your swing (create a My Swing thread).
  9. Major image change there! good job!
  10. If you can't do what you want to do at slower speed consistently then it will be very hard to have it consistent at your normal swing speed on the course. There are major growing pains when changing the golf swing. Keep practicing correctly and you'll see improvement.
  11. I switched to interlocking because right side of my hand hurt when making a swing and an interlocking took the pain away.
  12. Brookside Country Club in Canton, Ohio. They found the original design by Donald Ross and took out over a thousand trees. It opened the views of the course and made it much more playable and visually pleasing.
  13. Not sure about that. You can lower the loft by a few degrees and get a few hundred RPM. Yet, I can see the same with a dramatic change with a driver shaft change.
  14. Layout - 7/10Condition - 10/10Pace of Play - 7/10Visually Appealing - 6/10Cost - 8/10 Overall - 7/10 The home course for Kent State Golf. The course is always in great shape and have some of the best maintained greens in NE Ohio. The layout is straight forward. The course is a bit tight with some tree lined fairways, but there isn't any wonky hole designs or blind tee shots. This course has an awesome tent sale in August every year were you can find a ton of golf apparel, shoes and other items on sale. The course just doesn't have that wow factor.
  15. Layout - 6/10Condition - 9/10Pace of Play - 7/10Visually Appealing - 7/10Cost - 7/10 Overall - 7/10 A pretty good golf course. The layout was decent. The fairways are narrow, but the course is straight forward and it gives you some area to bail out away from obvious hazards. A lot of the greens were on the smaller side and had a lot of slope to them. A good course to play if you are with in an hour drive.
  16. Not sure how far you drive the ball or the tee boxes you would be playing. Maybe the course plays different for someone who plays the white tees or shorter. They may not be able to cut any of the corners and it may play more reasonable.
  17. Played this course with Erik and two of his golf team members. Layout - 5/10 Condition - 6/10 Pace of Play - 1/10 Visually Appealing - 8/10 Cost - 7/10 Overall, the course looks great, but it hides some design flaws that make golfing there not that pleasant. It was difficult to figure out where to hit the ball of the tee to maximize your scoring potential. The course was very soft and we struggled to find golf balls 10 yards off the fairway. A few of the greens were a bit wonky. A lot of the fairways were to narrow. There were very little bail out areas if you didn't want to take on an aggressive angle. So, there was a lot of risk with very little reward. All of this lead to a 5 hour round of golf. I think unless you get the first tee time in the morning, you will be having a 5+ hour round of golf every time out there. The course is just set up that you will be looking for 2-3 golf balls on 75% of the holes. Overall - 6.5/10
  18. New thing to work on. Swing Left!!! Feel like I cut the ball and that I turn and get my right side forward.
  19. https://bnc.lt/yzOb/a54crWIq69 kind of better. Still struggled with the ball striking.
  20. I am 99% sure I gained 30 lbs of flab in that sort of timeframe. I got down to 198 lbs and went back up to 230-ish because I got tired of eating 1500 calories a day.
  21. Gleneagles in Twinsburg, Ohio. A very good course. View this round on GAME GOLF
  22. Current Swing 6 Irons Swing 1. Feeling more pressure under the left foot from A4 to A5. Then feeling like I push off with my left leg only from A6 to A7. 2. Still a bit of right side forward as well 3. Backswing is just a slower backswing, keeping my arms more passive. Driver Swing - Same feeling as above. General Comments 1. I didn't know how much getting that left leg to extend would help clean up my contact and increase my turn rates. I should have been working on this more since it was one of my priority pieces.
  23. Finally figured some things out on the range. 1. Slower backswing to help feel the backswing length. 2. Feel more pressure under the lead foot from A4 to A5. 3. Push off the left foot, lots of pressure feel under left heel. videos to come later.
  24. To help with contact I did more of a preset swing. Weight forward feel in the swing. Hit down more at the ball. At least I stopped thinning shots and hooking them off the planet. Unfortunately it took me to the back nine to do it.
  25. Wow, I haven't seen that video in a long time. Had to dust that one off. 😛
