  1. Agree for putts outside 10' Meh, even chipping can benefit from the bounce of a wedge. Use a pitching wedge at the longest iron for chipping. Never use 4 or 6 irons for pitching. Not a tip, but an outcome. PGA Tour player swing hard. The effortless swing thing, to me sounds like a trick to try to mitigate amateurs having swing faults that may go really wrong if a golf swings hard.
  2. I haven't worked with the driver yet.
  3. Yea, much better. Divots are much shallower. The ball flights are pretty good. I think for the most part I hit slight push draws or slight pushes.
  4. Mobility is a big thing. I try to get out of my work chair every few hours at a minimum and use my standing desk for a few hours of the day. I go for walks daily. I stretch every night before bed. I find that my lower back mobility is the best its every been. If my back does flare up, its usually not too long and I don't need much in the way of drugs.
  5. The issue with high ball flights with amateurs is it comes with poor golf mechanics. This leads to inconsistent ball flights. Also, it will make it very hard to hit full swing wedge shots with consistent distance. 100' is not that high. It's slightly higher than average, but not crazy high.
  6. Time to break out the Mevo and ruin my golf swing 😉
  7. Two swing feels 1. More right elbow feel 2. Right side gets to left foot while lower legs feel like they don't do much. So it feels like the torso turns only. It also feels like the head stays steady vertically.
  8. Brooks took shots at DJ after round three. Rory McIlroy 'taken aback' by Brooks Koepka's dig at Dustin Johnson Rory McIlroy took issue with Brooks Koepka noting that Dustin Johnson had "only" won one major win when assessing his own chances at winning a... Rory took a shot back,
  9. I like Bryson because i prefer eccentric people playing on the PGA Tour. It makes things interesting. I would prefer if you didn't make a sweeping generalization like that.
  10. DTL 7 iron - Swing thoughts is more of the right elbow feel. DTL 7 iron - More right elbow feel while keeping my focus more on the ball. Sometimes I can loose focus of the ball when I am practicing. Also, my intent is to start the ball left of my target line.
  11. Let’s assume the top 5-ish shoot a few over par. Then I could think something like a 62-63. So probably 9-12 back I can see happening.
  12. To give props to Ohio State. They have a Athletics Degree Completion Program. Shaun Wade, Baron Browning and Kyle Young Among 27 Ohio State Student-Athletes to Receive Diplomas on Sunday Shaun Wade, Baron Browning, Michael Bennett, Kyle Young and Trevor Thompson are among the... Football players can return and complete their degrees.
  13. Incorrect, you handicap is zero which is a handicap. It allows you to have matches against other handicaps. What about courses with different difficulty? 1 over par on a 7200 yard course is way different than a 6200 course. Actually, the handicap system is very logical. by this statement it just seems you have an issue with the USGA in general.
  14. DTL View - Feeling right elbow in the backswing, and squishing rights side and keeping getting the rights side through. DTL view - finally got the swing shorter. Same feels as above. I think keeping the swing shorter will help. I noticed on the video when I swing to long, my hands start to pivot over my elbow, opposite how the elbow moves in the backswing. This swing felt like I could turn better. my Main focus will be on swing length.
  15. Played 9 https://bnc.lt/yzOb/Scrf8YDZJ8 Kinda better with the golf swing. Short game and putting are on point.
  16. @iacas, When it comes to turning. Is there something I could be doing that could make it easier to turn? Right now, I am stuck between two feels. Wanting to get my right side more forward through impact so I don't tilt back. The other is trying to gain extension in my left side. These seem to fight each other.
  17. I prefer the hybrid over another wood. I think it's a more flexible club to use, and more consistent.
  18. It bothers me more when people hang out around the green. Like marking down their score or putting one club away. You can hop in the cart and move along to the next tee. I definitely start to walk towards the cart or my pushcart as people are finishing up putting. I try to be aware of my position and when someone is putting, but I think it helps with pace. The faster you can head to the next tee the sooner the other group behind you can hit while you are on your way.
  19. Comparing the first video to the screen shots above. 1. Can still be a bit more elbow out at A3.5. The swings today were kinda in-between Saturday and my previous swing. 2. I can do better in how I turn through impact. 3. I can shorten the swing up.
  20. Current swing with just focusing on right elbow piece. Some thoughts on the swings while practicing. 1. Contact usually slightly thin. 2. It feels like I can’t get my right side through the shot most of the time. 3. Shots range from good slight draws to pull draws to pushes. The good contact shots either are pull draws or good draws. The thin-ish shots are straight shots or pushes right. Here is me trying to hit a cut with the backswing right elbow feel. Just trying it out to see if I could.
  21. I found the hybrid/3-wood play to be only for one shot. When you are on an extremely tight lie, and you need to cover a lot of space on the green. So you need a bit more pop than a putter. Basically, The Open championship with their gigantic greens. Maybe if you are up against the edge of the rough, though I would rather putt with a wedge versus use a hybrid. Besides that, 99.9% of shots can be handled by a putt, chip, pitch, or flop shot. If a PW chip shot is easier than a hybrid/3-wood then there is no need to practice this type of shot. The issue is that there is little margin of error because of the more speed you will get from the hybrid. They have a higher smash factor potential due to the lower loft and hotter clubface. That is were you judge which shot you want to take. 1. Flop shot 2. Pitch shot 3. Chip Shot I still think if you have this thick of rough you are more likely to have alot of grass get between the ball the hybrid. Verse being able to adjust the steepness of the shot with a wedge.
