  1. My buddy Lou shared earlier today a thing we've talked about the past few weeks re: short-siding yourself on the PGA Tour. The image: In chart form: At first glance this flies a bit in the face of the idea that "being closer is better," but that really only holds if you insist on taking this literally and completely disregarding the shades of grey. We've never said that being buried in a deep bunker 15 yards from the flag is better than having a 60-foot putt (or even a chip from off the green). And clearly, short-siding yourself on the PGA Tour can present s
  2. https://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/2018/11/01/bryson-dechambeau-putting-pin-2019-rules/ Duh. Yep.
  3. 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 h
  4. Over the course of the last year, based in information gained from this site, from LSW, taking lessons, and from data about my own game learned from 9 rounds with my Arccos, I have become a much better and golf. Furthermore, I have become much better at understanding how to improve my own game. I know what a good full swing both looks and feels like for me. when it's not right, I know how to use video to understand where I'm off and how to correct it. My full swing still has a very long ways to go, but at the same time, It has come a long ways. Additionally, I feel that I have t
  5. I've been thinking lately about the short game and putting, specifically proximity to the hole from around the green. I don't actually know how close I should be getting to the hole at my skill level. Game Golf tells me I'm 97% < 5 yards within 25 yards (I wish they would break this down more), but let's say I average 12' from the hole. A PGA Tour pro makes ~30% of those putts. A Tour-level putter I most certainly am not; I might make < 10% of my 12' putts. I'm not scrambling at the rate I should be and I don't know if the problem is with my short game or my putting. If I don't hit
  6. Hi Guys I've been very close to giving up the game recently and just wanted to see if others have similar feelings post round. So passionate to play golf and improve and will always spend the time practicing to get better. Recently have been playing great golf only to be 3 putting from 15- 20 yards. whenever i'm playing well I can't hole 3 footers its insane!! I play off of 10 but I just can't putt when it means something. if i'm having a mediocre/bad round i'm ok with the putter but Havn't hit under my handicap in 20+ rounds and i'm actually creeping up when i'm playing/ s
  7. I know it's hard to do this without looking at my swing but I am hitting all of my pitch shots high on the face and out on the toe. I don't have any issues with this with my irons or even knock down wedge shots. But for some reason when I get around the green and try to elevate the ball I hit it out on the toe and high on the face. Any ideas?
  8. Hi guys my first post here, and I was just wondering what everyone thought about small yet important things that will make me a better player. Would it be going to the range and trying to better figure out my yardsges with each club. Trying to hit different shots draws fades high low. I have 2-3 hours a day everyday that I'm willing to work... should've said this first but I usually shoot mid-high 80s but that can easily jump up to high 90s. I really want to take my game to the next level. With the goal being regularly in the 70s now I know it won't be easy and don't expect it to be but I'm wi
  9. My new found golf buddy and I were supposed to play 18 yesterday, but the weather was just too wet, and windy to spend 3+ hours in it. He still wanted to get some competitive golf in, so we decided on a short game match at the local practice area. The idea was pretty typical, as we would take turns dropping a ball, what ever distance, and location off the green we each chose when it was our turn. There were 6 practice holes to chose from. One was picked, and the same could not be used twice in a row. We played 36 holes in a little over 2 hours. We could have played much fast
  10. I'm not going to belabor this point too much because there are a lot of specific scenarios people can use to prove or disprove this. I'm talking very generally here. If you were given the choice between a 50-foot putt or a 20-foot putt, which would you choose? Why, of course you'd choose the 20-foot putt, even if you had to putt up a tier or down a slope. As we know (from statistics, common sense, etc.), proximity to the hole is the single biggest determinant of the resulting distance from the hole. Duh. Shots from 20 feet finish closer to the hole and go in more frequently, on avera
  11. Question: I've recently started using my 60 lob wedge around the green but a problem has emerged. While previously, I (almost) exclusively was using my 52 gap and was able to dial distance with the single club I now find that switching between the two is really creating distance problems. Now, the 52 feels like the ball explodes off the head and I tend to hit it too far. I know it's probably just more practice but is there anything clever that can help as well? For longer shots, I've actually taped distances for a full, 3/4, and half swings on a tag on all my wedges and i've found it h
  12. See the questions above. For clarification, A is good, F is terrible, and you're to rate your game compared to golfers of the SAME handicap. So if you rate yourself as all "A"s or all "F"s then you're probably not the handicap you say you are.
