    Mobile Apps

    Has anyone ever had dealings with a designer/developer for a custom Golf App - like score keeping? I've been on a couple of sites (Fiverr - Freelancer) and searched on Bark. The only drawback is most of the freelance people on these sites are abroad. Working through different time zones is cumbersome in communications. I'm looking for US individuals to deal with. Companies which do design work are more interested in Corporate $$ rather than small guys like me. I realize there are many free scoring apps, but most of them are for individual use. One great app is Golf GameBook, the only drawback is setting up the field before an event. My only issue with it is when players jump groups, no shows and additions of walk on players. The app is prefilled and changes take time on a PC to change, which I neither on Saturday mornings. It also requires codes for player to enter to join an event. I'm seeking to have a simple score keeping app which users simply enter the players in their groups and go play golf. Scores are then reported to a web base application (like Google Sheets) A vital part of the scores is the ability to transfer them into other applications used for various game formats. Anyone have any suggestions or knowledge they could share?
  3. Has anyone tried the Vice line of golf balls? They look very intriguing to me, I just wanted to see if anyone on here has tried them or even use them regularly. I currently switch around golf balls pretty often depending on what people give me as gifts and also what I just impulsively buy at Golfsmith. I've bounced from the Taylormade Burner, to ProV1s, to ProV1xs, to NXTs, and Nike RZNs lately. I really want to try and settle on a consistent ball to hopefully get more consistent results out of my game.
  4. Watching the pros play golf on television is very entertaining. Seeing how they get themselves out of trouble, and their club selection, can always be a learning experience. Asking yourself why he chose that 3 iron when putting off the green instead of a wedge or why he is laying up instead of going for the green in a certain situation. Ah, these little bits of information can easily be explained by the golf commentator or analyst. They are there not only to fill during commercial breaks, but to enlighten you on the finer points of the game. Every network has their own with a mixture of foreign as well as American voices. Who do you like to listen to the most? Who is more entertaining and who do you learn more about golf from? Most of my friends enjoy Jim Nance and Dottie Pepper. My own choice would be Peter Alliss from the BBC. Does one have a "favorite" voice in golf they like to listen to or are they all the same.

  6. Here's how this topic will go. I'll start with a generalized "idea" or statement or something, and any reply to that topic should quote just that statement and reply "Underrated" or "Overrated" and a brief description of why they feel that way. The additional Rules are simple: After a minimum of three replies and twelve hours of no new responses, anyone can switch the topic, either in a response including the Overrated/Underrated response to the previous topic, or in a new response. Rating of the previous topic then ceases, and all responses must be of the new topic. The topics can be anything from the world of golf. Number the topics sequentially, and post the topics in large, bold, red font so that they stand out and we can keep track of them. You cannot say "neither" or "just right" - you must pick Underrated or Overrated; no fence-sitting is allowed. As long as the topic is still “alive” and you have already posted your answer, you can engage in discussing the topic with others. Try to choose interesting topics, or we'll struggle to get to three votes and thus struggle to reach a point where someone can choose the new topic. Here's the first topic. Underrated or Overrated #1 - Reaching Par Fives in Two
  7. 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! :)
  8. Very good home-run hitting swing on the left. Better golf swing on the right.
  9. Who is on your Mount Rushmore? For me it's Snead, Woods, Nicklaus, Hogan. Not in that order. 🙂
  10. I admit. I do not know who this guy is except what I read in this article. Some of his ideas are mildly interesting, but the guy apparently has never had to think very hard in his life. Why is he talking? He just about contradicts himself: "We have to make the game go faster and...Get more people to play — which will also happen as it gets quicker " "Get ‘em to stay one more hour on property to participate in something else when they play golf. " He does not do math: " When you look at the statistics, 44% of golfers play less than 10 times a year " " We need to get that 44% to play an 11th time. If we do, that’s 10 percent more volume from them " I don't think he understands the logistics of how TopGolf works. " Look at TopGolf, who’s taken the game and reinvented it in a different kind of way for a different kind of audience and look at the success they’ve had by energizing golf. You wonder: Why couldn’t clubs do that at certain times?" He thinks that broadening the base means to make the sport more exclusive. He says so in several places. This example is typical. " I don’t think you can have golf without hospitality; the two are one thing. There is no golf if we don’t work on creating the experience, and that experience doesn’t only happen on the course." Golf Course Rescue: How Jon Taffer thinks golf can save itself Iconic "Bar Rescue" host Jon Taffer started in the golf industry—and he's got strong opinions on how courses should adapt to a changing world.
  11. First time post. Fell down a Youtube hole and found out that home made courses are a thing I know quite a few tour pros have them in the their backyards but he first couple of these tracks were built by amateurs. One is out in the desert and the other looks like it’s round a collection of backyards. And just to show how it can be done with loads of cash here’s coach Dave Pelz’s with his backyard set up - which looks amazing . It got me thinking If money were no object what would be on your dream homemade course? Would it be super hard, bunkers deeper than WW1 shell holes? Would you even bother? Personally if I had the land and the cash I would in a second.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Interested to see what the poll turnouts are and replys.
  15. Like our 2008 , 2009 , 2010 , 2011 , 2012 , 2013 , 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 threads, here's the official thread for 2019!

  16. Okay guys so I'm new to TST and read that most people on here are pretty nice and give good advice. So here goes my post. Since its my first post I'll give a bit of background as well. This is my 7th golf season. As I have progressed my scores have gotten consistently and significantly lower. I was a 100-105 when first starting, now I'm pretty consistently below 95 (on a decent day of course). My driver still slices, which is a topic in of itself. I just bought my first set of truly new irons (Cobra Fmax irons) and before that I had hand me down muscle back irons from the early 2000s.. My reason for this post is, I want to know what I'm doing wrong because I have never hit a birdie. I've had rounds where I hit bogey golf a whole round with the occasional double or occasional par. Even though I have averaged 4-6 GIRs a round but still 2 or 3 putt. Speed is there but I can't seem to read a green. I have had opportunities shouting in my face waiting to be drained and I'll push it. The straightest putt ever... pushed or pulled or not enough or too much speed. Is it the confidence? Is it swing thoughts before I set up at a putt? I'd like to know the same for my driver as well. 7/10 times it will slice or fade right quite a bit. but the other 3 will go right down the fairway. Even though I've changed nothing with the stance or swing. Sorry about all the info. I just feel like I haven't improved the parts of the game that mean it most and am feeling disappointed that 7 years later I have yet to hit 1 singular birdie. Thanks for whatever help you guys could give me.
  17. Hi there!I wanted to ask if anyone knew if it is legal to use a tennis overgrip tape over a worn golf grip, or using a tennis grip on the club. I understand it is legal as long as the grip has no grooves and is plain (as the common golf grip).I think this topic was discussed previously but I wanted to have an update since rules changed.Best regards!Rod
  18. I’m new here.... anyways Can’t find any info on these clubs or company (state of the art golf company) in general found one on the side of the road in a pile of other stuff (S.O.T.A E.R.S) a putter to be exact I’m just curious as to why there’s nothing on the internet about them hardly?! Like no wiki or forums, barely any forsale and the forums that do exist are like atleast ten years old and 2 of them at that really don’t have anything much about them still but there are a few forsale on eBay and stuff but I’m more curious as to what there all about more than the worth ( found it in the trash) but anyways please let me know if you have any info on them. Also I left a link to a old forum one of the few I can find thanks Golf Clubs | RadioReference.com Forums I know there has to be some Golf geniuses here.:) I came across 2 sets of golf...
  19. So I have been struggling with my swing lately. I feel like I'm sliding my hips and flipping my hands. I hit almost every shot very thin(no divot) and sky high. I used to hit my 8 iron around 160 yards, and now I am struggling to get it 145.. I also tend to fall back on my heels. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! (Video attached)

Guilt you May Ask....Why Guilty and Being Honest because I hadn't Smiled in A Month so I honestly thought I didn't Need to Enjoy Life Anymore that it was Meant to be Mean & Hard.....I vividly remember not only was that the Only Time I Had Smiled Since Losing "Beckett" but Also I hadn't REALLY thought About that Horrible Morning for the Past 5+ Hours and that was Amazing! At that POINT I was having NIGHTMARES OF THAT MORNING AND RELIVING IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN & That was On a Good Day When I could Actually Sleep....I lost 40lbs Because I Couldn't Eat or Sleep for the Fear I would Lose One of My Daughters....So From That Day FORWARD when I was Crying 😢 I would Go Hit Golf Balls when I was Mad and Hated the 🌎 I would Go Hit Golf Balls and For Every other Crazy Emotion I experienced I would Go Hit Golf Balls for Hours and Hours Until I had Blisters on My Hands I had My Girl bring Me Athletic Tape and Some Stretchable Foam Like Padding & Taped My Hands Up and Kept Going.....Well I started To Get Better and I Started Studying the Swing up at 3am, 4am In Our Bedroom Lights on in Front of a Huge Mirror that I bought so LET for the Purpose and Trying to Improve My Golf Posture Etc....I was Able to Immerse Myself in Something Other than The Death of My Son.....🙁 One might Ask well what do you Owe Something that Saved Your Life.....? My Response: MY LIFE! So I quit My Job (engineering) and Decided I would go get a Job Bartending Again because I Made Good Money doing that in College they Worked Around My Schedule and Allowed me Some Flexibility to Practice More & More and I got this Idea that I wanted to See if I could take a Couple Years to Become Good Enough to Pass the PAT so that I could Teach Kids this Amazing Game....I thought what about An After School Program for "AT RISK YOUTH" etc....Maybe Call it "Fore BECKETT.ORG".....I Just wanted No That Is Not The Right Word.....I NEEDED TO GIVE BACK TO THIS GAME THIS WONDERFUL GAME.... NOW HERE WE ARE....ALMOST 2 years LATER.....At My Best before I Had Kids and Responsibilities I was I believe around 12-14 Handicap...Now I have Improved on that Number TREMENDOUSLY I am Around a 5 (right now I am Dealing with a RHOMBOID small tear) Which has me Both Depressed and Sad because I really had Planned on Going Down the Memphis the End of September to Take the PAT....But Now I DUNNO I have been Out 3 Weeks Already Dr Said 3-6 Weeks NO SWINGING AT ALL....I was Feeling Pretty Confident Right Before I got Hurt Shooting a 76 at Harpeth Hills in Nashville, TN is hitting the Ball Pretty Darn Good....I haven't Had a SINGLE LESSON and Said IN THE BEGINNING I DIDN'T WANT TO....I wanted it to Be an Intimate Experience that I shared Alone (with My Baby Boy Looking Down and Smiling Seeing that His Daddy Didn't just Lose It...That He Had A Goal and Acheived It and That Him and Myself did This Together)!!!!! I COULDN'T HAVE PUSHED MYSELF THIS HARD WITHOUT HIM BEING MY MOTIVATION TO SUCCEED AT ALL COST! I am probably gonna start Hitting lil 30-60 Yard Wedge Shots this Weekend....I will Try and See if we can Budget Hiring a "Teaching Pro" to Get Me Ready and See if its Possible......EITHER WAY....What I had previously said I Would Take A Couple Years to See How Good I can Get Now I think if it Takes 2,3,6 Years to Achieve My Goal then So Be it....It MEANS SO MUCH TO MYSELF THAT I ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL.....(Because what I didnt Tell you is that About a Month after My Son Passed Away literally a Week after the Scramble at GreyStone My Ex packed up took My Daughters & Said that I was an Ever Present Reminder of Him to Her and that She was Going to her Mom's......So I lost My Best Friend of 10 years, My Son, and My Daughter's Not that I couldn't go See them and After Spending Almost My Entire Savings Fighting to See My Girls and Hearing My Ex Whom is Mad at the World tell me that I am an Idiot for Quitting My Job and Chasing this "Silly Stupid Sport Around" (her Words Exactly Not Mine) I feel as if I have to Achieve My Goal (to this day she hates the 🌎 and I can Only Feel Sadness in my Heart for Her) !!!!

I HOPE YOU GUYS HAVE A PLEASANT WEEK AND THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME SHARE MY STORY ON THIS WONDERFUL SITE.... With Love & Respect, Chris R.
  21. Recently torn intercostal muscles on left hand side. Was wondering if there's is anything wrong with my swing that has caused this or whether it's just overuse as I've been going to the range a fair bit. I'm very new to the game so have no idea really how to analyse the video. I know I could swing a bit further back on my back-swing but other than that, not much idea. Any feedback or advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks I've been Playing Golf for: 3 months My current handicap index or average score is: Don't have one My typical ball flight is: Slight Draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Anything without clean contact Videos: Imgur Post with 0 votes and 1 views.

  22. https://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/2018/11/01/bryson-dechambeau-putting-pin-2019-rules/ Duh. Yep.
  23. 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.

  25. I was hitting a Seve driver Ballesteros 10.5 loft driver and irons with regular flex. Never gave flex much thought until now. Was looking to buy a set of TaylorMade (TM) M1 Irons and 'woods'. To better understand what flex I needed, I went for a 30 min lesson with radar for club head speed and tracker for distance etc. TM recommend assessment using 6 iron and driver. 6 iron head speed was 92 mph and distance 168 yards. TM would rate this as Stiff for distance and Tour Stiff for head speed. The driver head speed wasn't measured but average distance over 100 balls was 258 yards and max was 286 yards. TM would recommend Tour Still for max distance but Stiff for average distance. As I am coming back from a 5-7 year hiatus, the instructor said the head speed and distance would only get better. I took ownership of the M1 .9.5 loft yesterday afternoon. I ordered Stiff in both irons and 'woods' based on instructor recommendation and TM fitting table albeit I was concerned that, should my game improve, I would need Stiffer So here's the question: I was hitting yesterday 258 yards average, and 286 yards max over 100 balls with the old Seve 10.5 loft and reg flex. I expected to blitz that with the new M1 9.5 loft with Stiff flex. I was wrong. I am obtaining only 244 yards average distance over 100 balls and 276 yard. Well short of my Seve. Worth noting that both has similar consistency. Any advice? Is the guide flex chart wrong? Is it the loft insufficient?
