  1. Tried attaching the animated gif with initial post but did not work. Uploaded my vid here: Thanks!
  2. I've been Playing Golf for: 12+ years My current handicap index or average score is: 13 My typical ball flight is: Draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Driver push/fade Issue: Struggling to get control/confidence the driver. Not consistent Good drives can go 270-300, but only 3/10 are like that. Looking for help from community to hear about tips/experiences that can help this swing. Also, requesting details of issues you faced before getting confident/getting-control of the Driver. Thanks for your time. Videos:
  3. In the down time, I’m definitely missing the sports on tv, esp golf. Starting to read the long Putting and Short Game Bible by Pelz. Hoping it will improve the scoring. Any feedback on these books?
  4. I’ve attached my swing. It was a good result, 270+yards in the simulator. I had very few instances of this and most of them were going right on this day and I did not have much control. I’m told to work on the path, to come from the inside. This happens easily now for me for Irons. Seems very tough for the driver. 😞 Looking to hear from the community about the swing and other experiences that gave people confidence and control with the driver. thanks for your time!
  5. After years of trying to learn to hit the stock driver (TM M1) and failing, finally got fit with XS, low spin. HUGE difference and I'm way better now with ball flight. Doesn't spray when I have a bad swing. And many more good flights during a round. Very happy with the new shaft. But the striking is very inconsistent. Too many off center shots. So looking for help and trying to fix this part of my game. I'll record n post the video sometime with trackman stats the next time I get it.
  6. I’ve always struggled with my driver. 12HCP now. Have a decent swing with the irons, am comfortable with the all irons. My 7I is about 165-170yrds. Driver is another story. I’m just not able to get confident with the driver. Some rounds are very good, some of them are bad. On good days, drives can be from 270-300Yards. Drives are quite inconsistent, drives on some holes can be good nice draws, but some can be a wild shot left, or topping it for 100yrd wormburner. The ball doesn’t strike in the center of the driver club face, its all over and affects scoring. But with irons, its quite consistent and its center’ish all the time. Looking for some help with experienced folks who have tamed their driver. What aspects of the swing (specifically for the driver) that is the key to getting consistent and confident with the driver? Sharing experiences that you guys faced and fixed would be greatly appreciated. What are some items I should try e.g: Slow swing speed? Slow down backswing? Shorter back swing? I’ve fixed sway and have decent hip turn over the years. Thanks
  7. Are we allowed to pack golf shoes and a set of clothes along with the clubs during travel? I once checked in a set of clubs in a travel case and during check-in (to London), I was asked what other things are packed in the case. I had nothing else other than clubs. He told me that i'm not allowed to pack clothes etc with it. Any advise/experiences on this topic?
  8. Hi All, Looking for advice and experiences of golfing in Singapore. Any recommendations on the courses? It looks like Marina Bay Golf course is the only public course and rest are private and is expensive. Any tips/dos-donts is appreciated. Thanks!
  9. I plan to visit and golf in/around St Andrews as well. I plan to be there during last week of July (around 26th). Will be going solo as well, would be good to golf with company. I'm a 12 handicap.
  10. Getting back to the forums after a while. Goal for 2020: Break 80. Play enough and practice enough to have a shot at the goal. Issues: Approach shots is missing the green and the round becomes a bogey train with a double or two. Driver: Unable to tap into the distance due to penalties with errant tee shots. Focus: Figure out swing to improve distance control and better GIR. Also: Hoping to play in the UK this summer. Starting my research about the affordable Links courses mentioned in this forums.
  11. What is a good golf news site to follow? Used to follow golf.com but that is somehow not as good with notifications and news about upcoming events etc. Wondering what other favorites exist for golf news
  12. It's fun to see it spin back. Also, it's so tough to get it when you are still learning it. Also, I feel ball fitting comes into play only after one has enough control over the ball/spin around the greens. In my experience, if your pursue the backspin and learn how to get it, the process would have improved your swing, ball impact, and your short game scoring !!
  13. Very cool, envy the opportunity to be able to do this. My "big" plan/wish is to hit the Links courses in UK.... waiting for planets to align....!
  14. !! What's this!? How do I participate?
