  1. I've golfed since I was a kid but always used someone elses clubs... I'm not 25 Active Duty military and want to golf this summer but don't have the $1000+ to get a nice full set. So I'm looking at used options or all in one sets. Anyone have suggestions on good sets or places to look for used ones? I am currently in Alaska so local places are far and few. I am about 5'10" 180lbs (idk if this helps). My main concern with a complete set is all I really need to last/be good for me is the irons as I know down the road I'll end up getting more woods first. Thanks in advance!
  2. This is my third year on the high school girls golf team and I have improved a lot since I started. Recently, my junior year season, I was hitting in the upper 40's for example, two weeks ago I shot a 48. This isn't an amazing score but, I was practicing all summer and it was really exciting for me. At practice, on the range, I was hitting every shot perfect. My hybrids, irons, and even my driver was going perfect. Then, my coach gave us a four day weekend, and I didn't pick up the club at all. I was excited to get back, but, at practice my first day back It was like I've never played before.
  3. Hi, I hope you are having a good day. I am new to the world of golf, I am having a difficult time getting my swing in control, I have practically been laughed off the green lol, if anyone has any pointers please let me know. Thank you so much, Elaine

  5. 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)
  6. Just wondering if anyone has any idea who made these, their age and stuff. Please let me know. Any information is useful! Thanks!! Mariah this is 1 ^^ and this is another 👇
  7. I used to be able to hit driver. It wasn’t always accurate. But I still hit it. Now something has gone wrong.... my swings off and I can’t figure it out. I can feel it though. In my wrist. It’s like it’s rolling. But I can’t find a swing plane that keeps the wrist from rolling. I was wondering if anyone could give me pointers? I have a scramble tomorrow and I would like to be able to carry my team on drives because they’re older gentleman(40-60) and I’m 21 so I’m hoping to get this dialed in by tomorrow. If I can get the swing plane and wrist down right I can get the accuracy down quick. All m
  8. So im going to be buying a new shaft for a driver i bought. dont like the shaft at all. its a 915D head. When i cut the shaft how should i measure it? I need a 43 inch shaft, thats what i was fitted for. So is that measurement from the tip of the adapter to the end of the shaft before i put the grip on? Or do i cut the shaft at 43" then put the adapter on? Thanks in advance
  9. PLEASE Help! Can anyone recommend a or some good drills that will help me learn to close my club face. About 60% of my swings are either a straight or push type slice. My club plane and hand plane are good. My back swing angle is good. My tempo is good. I set up to the ball and get aligned well. My grip is above par. I just can't seem to bring my club face into square at impact. I previously thought that I was simply going in to out on my down swing. By all video accounts that was the case. So, I worked on it. I placed a water bottle about 12"
  10. Hello guys, I'm starting to play golf again after six years of not swinging a club. Lessons with a pro is something I will be looking into but, in the meantime, wondered if I could ask for some thoughts from this forum? Below is an embedded video of my swing. It's the first time I've been to the driving range in a very long time... I think the basics are still there but I've lost all knowledge of how to self-analyse so any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm 29, around 90kg and used to play off 12 (although, as I said, that was some years ago now). I hit around 250 y
  11. https://thesandtrap.com/b/training/build_your_own_8_x_8_indoor_putting_green_cheaply I wrote that awhile ago, and, well, that putting green "worked" just fine, but: It was small. It was "unfinished" looking. I mean, look… Anyway, I have a 12' x 7' piece of turf and a newly finished basement section begging for a little putting green on which I can work on things. Here's the area: The putting green (which has shelves on it to help flatten out some bumps and ridges from being rolled up) is 12' x 7'. The red area is about 12' x 5' (it's 7' if you go fro
  12. Has anyone heard of swinglync? New kickstarter and I'm wondering if I should support?
  13. Hello everyone, i am a 10 handicap my drives are from 240-260 7 iron 165..the last 4 months i don't know what happen now i am struggling to get my drive 220 and my 7 iron 150!!! Side not i have been dealing with a pinched nerve in my neck shoulder blade area about the same amount of time. I have been on a quest to find the reason of this sudden and dramatic change, based on some videos and reading i think i could have subconsciously began casting the club, anyone with any advice will be greatly appreciated, thanks
  14. Hi Everybody, For the past month, I've been struggling with a major issue, or issues in my swing. In the downswing, my left leg (while initially bent after the takeaway), starts to lock up and straighten. This avoids me from getting any weight onto my left side (I'm a Righty, btw), causing a great deal of power loss in my swing. In addition, in order to compensate for the straightening of my leg, my head dips down, too. What are some tips and drills I can do to get a correct weight shift and avoid my left leg from straightening? If videos and or photos are needed, please tell me.
  15. Hey guys new poster here! Just wondering if anyone could have a look at my swing videos and give me some tips. I was hitting a nice little fade with my irons but lately I've been push fading my iron shots mainly from 8 iron up, wedges and 9 iron are pretty straight. Driver is ok but I hit it low and have a large fade which on occasion will be a large slice. And as for the hybrid I will usually hook it like a bitch!! Any tips will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance everyone. So turns out I'm not sure how to post the videos on here as I can only upload 5mb??
  16. Hi all, Was hoping I could get some advice/thoughts. Been playing almost 2 years (17 handicap).. I always seem to hit a wall though with all irons and go through a couple months of consistent shanks / mis hits. (Without exaggerating its like I am a beginner again) Going by the video i feel the error comes during my backswing - head and body come forward causing a shank. Any other tips/thoughts welcome! Why does this happen and how can I eliminate this and return to consistent golf!? Thanks Kor I've been Playing Golf for:

  18. So I just played my round best yesterday and only lost 2 golf balls! Which is really good for me because the course I live on has so much water and narrow fairways. The first time I went I lost a 24 pack of laddies.... so this made me happy in the wallet to say the least haha. anyhow I'm not sure where I should spend more time practicing so I wrote down my score into 3 different sections shots to get to pitching or chipping distance. pitching and chipping. putts. my score was a 100 with a 45 on the front and a 55 on the back... (I smoked on the back and I blame
  19. Hi There, My company is hosting a golf tournament at a very nice course in California. The group of people we work with are very mixed when it comes to being serious and fun. Some enjoy fun/silly games and other strictly want to play golf. One of the booths on the course will be a trivia booth about our company's history, but I am trying to come up with another booth on the course with a golf related activites. Anyone have anything that was pretty successful with a mixed crowd? Thanks!
  20. Let's suppose you have seven golfers: A scratch golfer we'll call "A." A 2-handicapper we'll call "NV." Two 3-handicapper we'll call "SS" and "AS." Two 5-handicappers we'll call "CS" and "RM." An 8-handicapper we'll call "ZM." Z 0 A 2 B 3, C 3 D 5, E 5 F 8 Z is me, and I don't care if I play in the game(s). The other golfers would like me to, but it complicates things a little bit to have an odd number. Maybe I can play a "rover" each day or something. I could play the front nine with one group, and the back nine
  21. I wanted to share my excitement that I was able to help a golfer out the other day with their game. I figured I could start a thread on how any of you have helped someone with their golf game. I'm thinking it could be in anyway, but share all the details. It could be giving them tips, equipment, paid for their gold ect.. I will obviously start us off.. I convinced my long time playing partner (of almost 3 years now) to join evolvr.. He has always been critical of me talking about picture changing and taking lessons mainly because he never saw my scores getting any better than his.. It
  22. Hi everyone! Fisrt of all, excuse me if my english is not that good, I'm a french Canadian! So lately I've been searching for new clubs because I can't hit anymore my old ones (Taylormade RBZ reg flex). I'm searching for a set of irons and woods/rescues, but I already have a Driver (Cobra Bio Cell+). I know that I hit a long draw and I'm hitting like 150-155 yards with my PW (no jokes). I tried Callaway XR Pro x-stiff of one of my friend and Taylormade Burner 2.0 stiff, but I didn't get the results I was searching for. I don't know if I should go right now to x-stiff because I know t
  23. Hello all i just started golfing a little over a month ago so I am still very new and very much learning. I have learned to hit my driver fairly well but for the life of me I cannot hit my irons. All of my swings send the balls either on the ground completely or slightly in the air and only 30-40 yards with a 7. I can't quite figure out what I am doing wrong. I posted a link of a video of my swing below. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! http://sendvid.com/ehypy0th
  24. Edit January 1, 2018: https://thesandtrap.com/how-to/embed-videos/ There is no need to follow the directions below. This topic was quite old. Please see the "How-To" page above. This video should explain it. Essentially, I paste the URL in (on its own line) and hit return. Then repeat until one (or more) of them embed. It's annoying, but it works 100% of the time.
