  1. Like our 2008 , 2009 , 2010 , 2011 , 2012 , 2013 , 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 threads, here's the official thread for 2017. The rules are the same as they've been: Post your goals personal golf-related goals for 2018. Be specific and thorough. Elaborate on how you'll go about achieving these goals. Details, people! Post just once, though if you reach all of your goals, you should quote your post and revise them later in the year. And set harder goals next year. Keep the replies to a minimum. This thread is mostly for the posting of goals. If you want to encourage more discussion of your goals, post a copy of them in your Member Swing thread. If you're looking to recap your 2017 goals, that's over here in this topic. Let's hear 'em!
  2. I hope nobody else has made a topic on these yet. For about a 2 months now I've been playing a 4 piece urethane cover ball that sells for $19.95 a dozen. This ball is sold by Cut Golf Company and is known as their Blue model. This month has basically confirmed what they advertise on their website (Cut Golf), and that is a high performance golf ball for cheap. I've found them to be just as spinny around the greens as any other premium ball I've tried and perform similarly to any other urethane cover ball I've played with this year. The company offers 3 different golf balls at the moment along with a trial of an upcoming 4th model. The Cut Blue (4 piece urethane), Cut White (3 piece surlyn), Cut Red (2 piece surlyn), and the Cut Grey (lower compression 3 piece urethane - in trial stages). Their prices range from $20 a dozen for the Blues to $10 a doze for the Reds. I've only played the Blues, but I'd say they are a great option for someone who wants to play a "premium" ball, but doesn't want to break the bank.
  3. Last June I came down with a great case of Plantar fasciitis in my left foot. I struggled to finish out the golf season, but had to sacrifice walking most my rounds. With 2 month till I start golfing again I am in need of a new pair of golf shoes. Unfortatly, this condition is not going 100% away. One wrong step and I am back to battling the pain. Therefore I have to be super conscience of my feet! I am looking for a decent pair, not overly expensive, not dirt cheap. I need a pair that I can walk a course. They either need to be geared toward those suffering from Plantar fasciitis, or I will need to utilize a Plantar fasciitis insole. If the latter is the case, can anyone recommend a good Plantar fasciitis insole? I have already bought 5 different pairs and only 1 is decent. Full insole, good support, but $40 a pair! Any advice or recommendations are greatly appreciated!
  4. Simple premise; what is your favorite movie (with a reason, or just a little blurb about it, if you'd like) about each of the following sports: Football: Baseball: Basketball: Hockey: Soccer: Auto Racing: Bowling: Surfing: Golf: Boxing: Other: I left the original post blank to make copying and pasting easier, I'll come back and post my answers in the second post. "Other" is there in case you have a favorite sports movie that wasn't covered above. I certainly do. :)
  5. What course do you consider the best course in or in the local area of Los Angeles, why?
  6. If you have GHIN, or a handicapping service that tracks your rounds, post below: 1. How many rounds you played in 2017 2. What was your average score 3. Your high and low rounds. Here is mine on the very bottom. (Just now getting used to the new Blue color used by Florida State Golf Association. Arkansas was green for me until yesterday.
  7. My shoulder isn't 100% and it's going to rain, but f*** it I'm going golfing tomorrow.

      Go for it!

  8. Over the past decades, brands have continuously strengthened the lofts on iron clubs, which means that golfers need to pay more attention to how they space wedges in their sets. With proper spacing and consistent yardage gaps between clubs, players will be able to obtain more short shots that finish closer to the hole. To achieve that, keep in mind the following rules. 1. Count the number of clubs in your golf bag up to and including the 9-iron. Starting with the putter, if the number of clubs up to your 9-iron is 11, that means you should carry only three wedges. If it is 10, you can have four wedges. Making space in your bag for one extra wedge will allow you to carry more clubs that are more suited for certain shots. For example, instead of a 3/4 swing, you can use a full swing to hit a shot. 2. Understand your pitching wedge loft. Add three more wedges with no more than 4-5 degrees between each of them, if your wedge loft is 45 degrees or less. That means putting in a gap wedge between 48 or 50 degrees, a sand wedge between 54 and 56 degrees, and a lob one between 58 and 60 degrees. Work with your fitter to achieve the most suitable gapping for you. 3. Put a gap wedge (around 50 degrees) between the pitching wedge loft and the sand wedge loft. This gap wedge provides much-needed yardage between those two clubs. Match it with the set's short irons and pitching wedge. The gap wedge will probably be a full-swing club, while the sand wedge and lob wedge will be used more for shots around the green. 4. Wedges can be bent a degree or two rather easily to achieve the desired loft spacing. However, once you start strengthening or weakening the lofts of your high-lofted wedges, you are also changing the bounce angle. Every degree strong reduces bounce by a degree, and vice versa. 5. Ultra-high lofted wedges may help the ball get in the air quicker. However, a maximum loft of 58 degrees provides the best versatility for your highest-lofted wedge and a more solid contact for better greenside spin. Ideally, a 45-degree pitching wedge will be followed by a 50-degree gap wedge and complemented by 54- and 58-degree sand and lob wedges. 6. Check with your fitter to better understand how to work your irons and wedges together. When you have an iron fitting, you should also add a wedge fitting to fill out the rest of your bag.

    Puzzle Solving Thread

    Here's a fun little thing we can do. Go to this URL: https://www.jigidi.com/solve.php?id=ZUTO8AE2. Solve the puzzle. Post your completion time back here in this topic. Let's see how well everyone can do! Update: We'll do a new puzzle every week or so, and the person with the fastest time can submit the next image to me. See post #15 below for more details.
  10. I am looking to get some Polara golf balls (the ones that go straight) repainted to look like a legitimate brand to prank friends (and foes) alike. Where/how could I get this done convincingly?
  11. http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/can-you-solve-a-rubiks-cube-in-less-than-five-seconds/ I love when people hold onto the idea that the players of the 50s or 70s or whatever were the best players, when in EVERY other "sport" - including the "sport" of solving Rubik's Cubes - players continually get better and better. This doesn't apply to the absolute top guys. For all we know, Hogan WAS the best ball-striker of all time. But the guys a layer down… they're better now than they were then. And in the future, they'll be better then, than now. The pace of this improvement slows, but it never really hits zero. (It can reverse, and players can get worse, but that's only likely to happen if the sport sees a major shrinkage. Today's bowlers may not be as good as the bowlers of the PBA's heyday, for example.)
  12. Hello everyone, I am an avid golfer and I also play hockey in the winter. I would really like to improve my golf to the point where I can compete at a high level in amateur events if possible. I also would like to keep improving my hockey skills so that I can contribute to my team. I am wondering how much of an offseason I should have from golf every year to still move forward. Adult hockey practices run from November to the end of March so I was thinking maybe I could focus on golf from April to October and then hockey from November to March. That way I am dedicating 32 weeks a year to golf and 20 weeks to hockey. That appears to be the minimum practice required for kids who are in their early teens to be comepetetive. I'm less concerned about getting better at hockey because I know that it will be very hard to catch people who have been skating since they were kids. For those who have played at high levels do you think 5 months away from golf is too long? Would it be worth going with a shorter golf offseason where I'm not swinging clubs? What would be the effect of training both at the same time lets say golf Mon/wed/Fri and hockey Tue/Thu. During the golf off season? Would I just end up confusing myself? My local golf dome sells a winter pass for Nov 1-Mar 31. As a bit of context I have been playing for 2 years and have yet to break a hundred. Have probably played 50 rounds in that time. Love the team aspect of hockey and the battle aspect. Love the golf for its analytical nature and being outside.
  13. http://www.golf.com/instruction/flag-or-out http://www.grouchygolf.com/2004/09/golfers-leave-that-flag-in.html Notice the first comment on the latter link above… This will be a quick one. When hitting a shot from off the green, leave the flagstick in. It's really that simple. Unless the flagstick is leaning so far toward you (the Rules of Golf allow you to re-center a flagstick that's leaning because it wasn't put back in properly) that a golf ball will not fit, it can only help you. A ball that's rolling so fast it hits the flag and doesn't go in had NO chance of going in without the flag. The flagstick can only take speed off the golf ball, either letting it fall in or keeping it closer to the hole. And, second: If you're outside of 25 feet or so, consider having the flagstick tended when you putt. People are shy to have the flagstick tended when they putt, but having a person stand there not only helps you aim (though you cannot ask them to stand somewhere in particular - if they happen to stand where you're aiming, it may be helpful to you), but it also helps you with your depth perception and thus helps you with your speed. That's it. Two tips that should help you. I've literally told my golf team members that if I see them playing a shot from off the green with the flagstick out, they strongly run the risk of sitting out the next round because it's just stupid to do otherwise. It's a free way to occasionally save strokes.
  14. Hey guys what's up. Have you ever thought about the importance of the golf ball and being fit for it? I would like to start a discussion on this topic. Let me know. If you don't yet know the difference between different balls I suggest taking a look here: https://www.golfgalaxy.com/s/golf-ball-comparison-chart It merely scratches the surface but it is very helpful in my opinion.

    Could you Golf in this weather ?

    It was Crazy windy one day at work and people were actually golfing in this wind! I almost got taken out by a ball from 2 holes over ! I took a little video here it is. Be careful the video is really loud!
  16. Hello Fellow Golfers!, I'm looking for a new destination around Asia that has a scenic layout good for my friends. We've played a couple of nice courses in Thailand, and it never failed to amaze me with the amount of courses they have in each city!. The language barrier in Thailand is decent for a simple conversation, and you could never go wrong with the nightlife. Let me know if you have countries in mind!.
  17. Thoughts on this product? You keep in your bag with your putter and wedge in it. When your close to the green you pull it out instead of carrying a large bag. It has a spike so you stick in ground and it just stands there freely. Also I think it can be used when at the range and want to try out a couple of my clubs rather then bring the hole bag or lay them on the ground. https://www.ebay.com/itm/253242721368
  18. I am subtitling this: “the Tao of Cipher” Last week I was able to play my first full round of golf in over two years. It was not pretty, but it was so much fun. I completely chunked about nine shots and I took at least 4 penalties. I had the absolute best time doing so. A co-worker and I took a couple business partners out and it was very rewarding to be able to do that again. All the hard work, patience and time weighing the tough decisions have been to the benefit of playing again without a concern at this point and without any sort of swing alteration to do so. I am incredibly pleased with the result and with being able to play again. It gives me great joy to know there are many days including yesterday in which my wife will mention the positive change she has seen in me. I don’t want to keep bringing up perspective, because I think it is and has been the least relatable thing in this blog so far based on the reactions and comments. I will just leave this series to be for now with a few final thoughts. This is probably one of the best things that ever happened to me, even if my wrist decides to give out next week. If everything continues to go well don’t be surprised if I play quite a bit less than I did in the past, but also enjoy the game more than I ever have. Don’t be surprised if I do not work on the swing at the same level or someday soon really at all. Don’t be surprised if there are days I would rather go throw a disc into some chains or go fishing with my son and daughter nearly every weekend. Don’t be surprised if I have little to no interest in playing competitive golf. I will however probably try and get the game in shape enough to qualify for and be part of the Newport Cup if I am lucky enough to be chosen. I was looking forward to that the last time and I would like to redeem that missed opportunity. I am most looking forward to meeting some of people I have not met yet from the site and also seeing those again that I have. Thank you to all who have read this series and have wished me well over these past couple years. If anyone comes across this blog in the search for information on this injury, please reach out to me if you are experiencing the same thing. I know the information out there is not great. I will possibly try and continue with another series of blogs in the future, but for this series on the “Reflections on Golf and Life After ECU Injury” I am signing off, for now. Wishing you all great health and don’t forget to take a moment to enjoy each day you are.
  19. The guy who thought that putting a little pocket within the right front pocket of golf shorts is a good ideaYou are very very wrong sir and if I ever meet you I'll be glad to show you how wrong you are. That is all.Regards,
  20. Hi Guys, I'm fairly new to this website. I wanted to join to begin a forum on Indoor Putting Greens. I know most of us reside in the cold states where we can only sit and dream about golf. I grew tired of this routine of playing golf and finding my game by the time it was too late and the leaves began to fall and soon enough the snow-birds were snow-birding again.... lol. Anyways, I'm an avid golfer, a golf junkie, a golf pyscho, a serial golfer... whatever it is I'm just obsessed with the game. I love it, like all of us do on this site. I've got 3 kids, so this project was a MUST DO. I made a massive putting green in the basement after reading many reviews for the material Kevin Na and Ben Crane were touting about a couple years ago. I learnt many of the tour pros used this material so I HAD to get my hands on it. I thought it would've been pricey but it was super affordable. I spent about 2 weeks building and boy, was it worth it. The finished product was beyond my imagination - I've played many great golf courses and the green actually emulated the best. I even added slopes. And for the record, I'm basically here to spread the word that it is completely possible to have a massive(or small) putting green in your home without breaking the banks like these synthetic turf company's charge. The project literally cost me less than $400. The kids love it, they're down there and have practically forgotten about their Ipads and Ipods and video games(true story). But best of all, the WIFE APPROVES. Here are some pictures - If people are interested in how I constructed, please just feel free to comment. We do not need to be golf hibernators anymore! :)
  21. Today I came across to this video and just wanted to share it with you guys Her swing looks great!
  22. Just want to get the word out on a relatively new golf ball company, that seemingly makes a great product. Similar to my Cut Golf topic. Sphera Golf is a new company (debuted in March I believe) that currently offers two different types of golf balls. The Pro Threes, and the Pro Fours. The Pro Threes are a 3 piece urethane cover ball that appears to be trying to play the role of ProV1 in their line up. Their ProV1 X is the Pro Fours, it is a 4 piece urethane cover ball. I've been playing the Pro Fours off and on this week and for me they seem to perform every bit as well as any other 4 piece urethane cover golf ball. Prices for the Pro Fours start off at $24.99 a dozen while the Fours go for $30 a dozen. I hope to update this thread with further impressions as I have more time with the ball, but early returns is that it is good ball for the price.

    Swinglync?

    Has anyone heard of swinglync? New kickstarter and I'm wondering if I should support?
  24. ...Oakley, OR other other comparable products... In other words, eye-wear made specifically for sports. Do they really help you see the greens better? Do they help you track your ball in the air better? What type of sunglasses do you use for golf, and what kind of lighting conditions exist on your home course? Will name brand eye-wear withstand an impact better than knockoff sunglasses purchased at the gas station (for example)? Are expensive sunglasses for sports worth the money? Or is it all hype?
  25. Very good home-run hitting swing on the left. Better golf swing on the right.
