  1. Ross County Ohio just allowed courses to open today, while adjacent Pike County has been open for golf for the last 2 weeks it seems.
  2. Thank you for doing these Erik. They are very helpful. Day 5 is one I need to work on as stalling hips is a huge flaw of mine. I was going to video today, but it started raining so I chose not to, but did the drill with my whole shag bag and a 6 iron. I found that if I concentrated on my hips I didn't do as well as if I concentrated on slamming on the brakes on the follow through. When I did that the contact felt really good and I found that I rotated up onto my back foot toes well. In my normal swing I frequently only get onto the ball of my rear foot. Later on I hit a shag bag with these drill and my LW and felt like I made good contact most of the time, although my distance control was not great. I noticed that it felt like the toe dug into the ground a bit. IDK if this is my swing or my clubs not being fitted properly.
  3. No video of day 1. It was pretty similar to some of the Planemate drills.
  4. If you followed the link and read the comments, you will see where the owner of a local driving range and club fitter/builder asked about that. The health dept and owner apparently exchanged some private messages, but there were no other public comments on that.
  5. IDK. But 4.5 hours from Detroit IIRC.

  8. The Ohio golf course my son played yesterday was forced to close today.
  9. My son walked 9 holes with a friend here in southern Ohio today. He said they only saw one other group when they teed off around noon. Must be something about most of still having to go to work. But he said there were several others there when they finished up. He shot a 39 which is tied for his second best ever 9 hole score.
  10. I'd like to know how they got confirmation that golf courses can remain open. Did they receive documentation they can share or was it just a phone call. I have seen one Ohio course share similar info on Facebook, while another Ohio course said the local health department won't let them stay open. It would be nice to have documentation from the state.
  11. 1. Yes. I work at a hospital. 2. No, but I figure walking the golf course is pretty good social distancing, so I plan to do more of it. I wonder if the courses will be less crowded.
  12. As a point of reference, my son went from playing maybe 5-6 times as a 14/15 year old in 2018 where he could't break 100 to playing a lot as a 15/16 year old in 2019 and getting his index (according to The Grint) down to about 12 I think by Christmas. He doesn't take lessons, but does practice a lot on his own and probably watches way too many YouTube videos. Based on MEVO data, his drives have an average carry of about 245, although the last time he used it he said he was getting over 255 more often. He plays on the HS golf team, but is probably hindered by also playing HS baseball which takes away a lot of possible golf time as well as possible swing conflicts between the 2 sports. So I think it is entirely possible for a young golfer who is motivated to practice and has reasonable athleticism to get to close to a single digit within 1 year. YMMV
