Handicap Index

  1. I've been Playing Golf for: 16 years My current handicap index or average score is: +1 My typical ball flight is: High Draw on the good days, the problem is my swing seems to change every day, literally new path and flight all the time. These videos are only a month apart each, and for some reason my swing both feels completely different everytime I play. I am a scratch golfer, who looked for more distance, and in doing so my swing became extremely inconsistent and my distance did not change much. The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Short slice or hook. I've always
  2. MySwing Golf Launches Major Software Update Scottsdale, AZ (November 16, 2016) — MySwing Golf, Inc., the world’s leading full-body 3D motion capture analysis system for the golf swing, has announced the launch of its newest and most sophisticated software package. The software is now available for download to all existing MySwing customers. The key upgrades with the new software include biofeedback, which uses both audio and visual cues, that allows coaches to share instant swing feedback with their students; and a report comparing a student’s swing to tour ranges, allowing
  3. Looking for any and all opinions on folks with experience having owned or used any of the currently offered swing analysis gizmos on the market: zepp, blast motion, arcos, etc. I was about to pull the trigger on the zepp, but I'm reading good things about other options out there. thanks in advance for your advice!
  4. Every golfer has the thought at some point.. "If only I could consistently shoot in the 70s, then I would enjoy golf more." We get lost in our heads, dreaming of a fantasy where golf was one day an easy game. What if we didn't have to worry about water hazards, sand, or OB? What if 3-footers didn't bring us anxiety? What if we could enjoy that pure strike that we long for on every single shot? I'd argue that the better a golfer gets, the more enjoyable the game is. But.. not in the way that most golfers imagine. In this post, I will be examining our love
  5. I’ve been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my right knee which is intermittently slightly painful. My instructor emphasizes the “One Plane Swing” - wide stance, bend 30 degrees and turn around a stable lower body with only a slight hip bump left to start the downswing. This has allowed me to be very consistent but lately feels like it increases pain in my right knee such that ice is required post round. Considering changing to a “Two Plane” narrower stance more vertical swing, but reluctant to mess with a good thing LOL. Anyone else make this or other swing changes for this specific issue
  6. Last year at about this time, I was added to Golf Digest's Best Young Teachers in America list: (I'll turn 40 in March, so that will put an end to my eligibility on that list). That was cool, and I was honored. This year, while I was returning from the Newport Cup, the lists for Best in State were released. Dave Wedzik and I are in a somewhat odd situation: we're in the Western New York section of the PGA. We've spoken at PGA Education seminars for WNY, NEOH, SOH, and other PGA sections, but none within PA. Votes for Best in State are compiled by asking other instructors in your sta
  7. Hey gang! I'm a 20 handicap after taking several years off from golf. I used to shoot consistently 90 - 95 per round at Pine Hills in Hinkley, Ohio. I'm now lucky to break 100. I had a package of 10 lessons at Golftec in North Olmsted, Ohio during the off season about 5 years ago. I learn visually so I really liked the instant video feedback and instruction. The one thing I didn't like was that they only had one bay for left-handed people and it was quirky at best. Didn't always work consistently. I'd like to take lessons again in the off season but haven't seen any recent feedback.
  8. Erik, I promise I'm not spamming. I just am looking for some discussion. Hi, TST Universe. Now this is a bit of an odd one. The YouTuber in this video, GolfSidekick, states anyone can break 90 with the following formula: (it's also at the end of the video) 1. A club you can consistently hit 160 yards or more off the tee and keep out of trouble. (Use this club off the tee on par-4s and par 5s) 2. Two clubs you confidently can hit on the green from inside of 150 yards. 3. One wedge to chip with 4. One club to hit 30-70 yard pitch shots with (though you want to avoid
  9. I use to do this a lot but now that I kept my right foot down I can strike a ton of balls without coming steep.
  10. tl;dr -- what are some examples of comprehensive/elite practice routines and how do you track progress? e.g. you may have seen golf magazine's "break 80 planner" or perhaps the wake forest golf team's practice regimen. what other solid resources and tracking strategies have you successfully employed? or could you share the routines of top amateurs or pros you've seen but haven't tried? one thing i love about golf is the seemingly endless room for improvement: full swing, short game, game plan & preparation/course management, fitness, stress management, etc. however, as someone with le
  11. Hey everyone, I've recently read Ben Hogans book the five fundamentals of golf. It was interesting, talking about the key points of making a good golf swing. It was based on traditional golf principles, stance, grip, etc. I've always played with the "swing your own swing". I have gotten better by being a bit "unconventional" but doing what works for me. What are everyone else's thoughts? Traditional or swing your swing?
  12. 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)
  13. I'm a 48 year old male and currently carry a .4 index. I started playing at ~18 and caught the bug in a big way. I've long been a student of the swing, but I always relied on my natural athleticism (and youth) to allow me to get my body to perform. I typically run +1 to 1 here in Wisconsin at my home course, and I've re-built my swing twice before this year. But I'm definitely getting older, and I had never lifted weights or committed to a work-out regimen in my life. So, in May, I committed to getting into the best shape of my life by 50. For the past 7 months I've been going to a personal tr
  14. Long time lurker first time poster. I need help before I go get lessons in a couple of weeks. I apologize ahead of time for the wall of text and no video. This is more of a stream of consciousness, and I want this to be a discussion rather than a diagnosis. Appreciate the help ahead of time. I have been playing golf for about 2 years. I normally shoot between 100-90 with the occasional really good round where everything is clicking. I don't really have a problem with big misses, I consistently hit a pretty tight draw. The problem I have is striking, I have become obsessed with where
  15. Every now and then, someone comes onto the forum with a grand idea about how "natural" the golf swing should be, about how "modern instruction is too technical," and about how they, despite rarely having broken 90 and having taken a few lessons and having seen a few YouTube videos, have the solution for what ails all golfers across the land. In this topic, I'd like to quickly tackle a few of the arguments that are commonly lobbed out there by these types of people. These comments are often made as if they're self evident, and obvious, when in reality they're just based on a hunch and a ti
  16. From 2009: http://www.golfdigest.com/story/hotlistevolution-0902 From 2015: http://www.myvirtualpaper.com/doc/Golfweek-Custom-Media/golfweek-5-18-15/2015051202/17.html#16 This post links to an article from 2017: Ignoring the fact that without a floor, you can't really calculate a percent improvement*… the fact remains: golfers are getting better. This seems to be true despite courses continuing to get more difficult, golfers playing longer tees than they often should, and anything else you can think of. Golfers continue to get better, IMO, because: Instruction
  17. Can anyone (PLEASE) recommend a golf pro in the Arcadia/Pasadena area of Southern California? Please and Thank You.
  18. I've been Playing Golf for: 9 months My current handicap index or average score is: 21 My typical ball flight is: draw tends to pull, push occasionally if switch to neutral grip The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: occasional fat Videos
  19. LADIES and GENTLEMEN: Can anyone make a referral to a good Golf Pro for lessons in the Pasadena, CA area? Please and Thank You in advance.
  20. Hey guys. Earlier this year I tore my calf and was in a walking boot for 6 weeks. Ever I’ve come back, I’ve had a nasty slice. Before I was working the ball both ways with ease. I have had a couple golf buddies it looks like my hands just release late. I can. Hit a draw and fade with everything but my driver. It’s getting frustrating. I’ve tried an in to out path for a draw but it just seems to be a push slice. It may be hard with no video. But does anyone have some ideas?
  21. Ok so last time when I did the Break 90 thread, It got a lot of discussion. But people thought he was full of it. He's back but this time it's with a player named Didi shooting a 79. Didi is not long... But knows his distances and such. @iacas may like this one. I'm just setting this up. Watch the videos, then comment.
  22. More good golfer in their golfing life found a key move that change their game. Do you have any which has revolutionized your game for good? I haven't found mine yet, Have you?
  23. Journey To The Center Of The Green By Shane Jones I wish I could just rename my blog the title of my new entry. However, if I can't it's all good. Anyway it's Sunday, well technically Monday wee hours... So this is part of my weekly blog. Recently, since my last lesson, back in February (remember Craig is in Florida for a month). I've added a new drill to my repertoire. It's the first move down drill. I have kind of explained it in the "5 Minutes Daily" thread (fingers crossed 20 days to go... Though I was so tired I put yesterday's date for today) It's really not that complex o
