  1. Golf is just weird. I go through spots where my swing just disappears. Then, I will be standing over a tough shot with no confidence, nail it, and the world is right again for a few months. For me, slumps happen when my timing is off. One thing, make sure you always hit the putting green if only for 5 minutes before your round.
  2. I say no it is not worth it from a performance stand point. But, if you think it will make you a better putter and give you more confidence, go for it. A putter is supposed to help you make more putts. That's it. I have yet to figure out the allure of designer putters, thank goodness.
  3. Smaller makers like Rife will most likely be gobbled up like Never Compromise was by Cleveland. I have no evidence to back up that Rife will fall aside, just sayin. It's a shame as it is the little guys that usually push the big guys to keep up.
  4. Only happens to me by accident...going below 75 that is. On those particular days it is ALWAYS the putter that leads the charge. Last round I shot a 76 with 33 putts. Not all that great. But, I one putted the last 3 greens. All of em were over 20 feet and 2 for birdies. Days like that make me wonder what would have happened if I would have just made a couple 8 footers. Live by the blade, die by the blade
  5. Grats. Like the feel of the Methods.
  6. Lots of varied replies. One thing I DO hate about the wind is at the range like was mentioned earlier. 200y drives....40 yard full wedge shots....3W, 4W, 3H, 4H all going the same distance....bleh. Most of us can agree that the wind does force us to play better golf even if we shoot crappier scores.
  7. Hit my 7 iron almost 200 yards today and hit my 6 iron almost 150 yards today. Anyone else like playing in the wind? I used to hate it, now I enjoy it. For whatever reason I focus more when the wind is howling.
  8. TP Mills and maybe Machine putters might pull off what you want. Shot them an email. If I ever decided to get a custom putter those would be my choices. Edit: After looking, to get customization it may be out of the $400 range for these 2 makers. Never hurts to ask em though.
  9. Drop the pass? You want him to CATCH the pass. Massaqoui was going to the ground with or without the ball. Harrison was sitting right on top of the play. In football terms he had an eternity to decide what to do. Let the guy get his 2 yards and let the clock run is my point. Not sure why you think end of half is trivial. If the Browns get in 7-6 or 7-10 the game takes a different shape. You see Ohio in my sig and think I am a Browns fanboy. I am a football fanboy and an Oilers fan without a team. And yes, Harrison needs to lay the guy out...no question. But, you don't drop your hel
  10. In a 2 minute defensive drill you give away all the 2 yard over the middle stuff. If there was a chance Massaquoi was going to get away, yes, break it up. But, he was headed to the turf with or without the ball. Tap on the shoulder and play is over. Tactically, it would have been the smart thing to do. Dunno, we teach the kids to play smart as well as hard. I wouldn't expect one of our kids to pull that play off, but if he did he would be rewarded. Football is as much tactics as anything else. Well, it should be anyway.
  11. Browns were moving the chains toward the end of the half with score 7-3. 2 minute warning was the play previous. If Massaquoi catches that pass they gain, what, 2 yards? Clock continues to run and Browns have to do a timeout or hurry up with a guy in his first game at QB. The Browns suck so I am not sure why you wouldn't let them have the 2 yards and let the clock run. Basically, do you want your opponent to have 2nd and 10 with the clock stopped or 2nd and 8 with the clock running with under 2 minutes in the half? Unless you need the ball back on offense, the defense wants the clock run
  12. My main point was Harrison made a really stupid football move on Massaquoi. The hit he laid down was done with zero awareness for the clock, field position, and situational awareness. What this tells me is Harrison is a bad football player (not) or he was trying to hurt the guy. Make the play first is what I say. If you happen to put the guy down for a bit, bonus. His stuff is borderline legal and within the rules. Still doesn't make it a clean way to play. The Cribb's hit was laid down from Cribb's blindside. Harrison clearly lowers his helmet not to tackle....Cribbs was wrapped up,
  13. I get a lot of info when during my lessons. I work through them all at the range and take 1 or 2 of the tips/adjustments to the course. I will also try to remember what doesn't work for me so he can teach a technique to me in a different way or throw it out the window and try something different. My guy is serviceable and understands what I want out of the game. At first he wanted me to swing like a pro. Well, my body doesn't move like a pro so we have made adjustments this year to account for that.
  14. At least your driver is going longer than your irons. When I started I am pretty sure my 7 iron was the longest club. But, those wood woods were a bear to learn to hit.
  15. Was said once, but odds are it is deceleration as you are trying to "feel" the distance you want to hit the ball. Club head falls behind and you wind up hitting fat with soft hands.
