  1. Do you have a club that you default to around the green, say 40 yards and in? I've typically leaned towards the strategy of using the same club and practicing different types of shots with it. It's usually my lob wedge. I've tried to transition to using my sand wedge, but would always go back to my lob wedge. I've also tried getting used to a less lofted iron (8 or 9) when hitting a shot with a lot of green to work with that runs, but find when I do that I'm just not as confident since i haven't practiced and done it as often as just hitting my lob wedge.
  2. Hi. I have a question and wanted to see what you guys thought. Some background: I'm not a particularly fast player (e.g., low to mid 150's ball speed with driver; low 120's ball speed with a traditional loft 6i.). I used to take the club back flat, come over it initially, but jump to shallow it out. I had a strong grip and I had days where a nice push draw was achievable; other days, it was military golf. Nowadays, I play with a more neutral grip and have much less dynamic movement. I more or less play with some forward shaft lean at address and feel like I hinge the toe up qui
  3. This hole came up in our round yesterday with various TST members (@iacas, @klineka, @Hardspoon, @CarlSpackler, @Braivo, @Divot Master). My group was with @iacas, @klineka, and myself who played from the Burgundy tees, with @Hardspoon playing from the Black tees. I deviated from the other two who played from the Burgundy tees in approaching this hole, so Erik and I had a brief chat about this possibly being interesting to post as a "How Would You Play" discussion. The hole is 284yd on the scorecard and it played with a severe wind blowing slightly left to right, but pretty much directly a
  4. First, specify which tees you're playing. Then tell us how and why you're hitting the clubs you're hitting and the line you're taking. Assume this is, say, the 7th or 11th hole or something. It's not the 18th and you don't need a birdie to win or something like that. It's a hole in the middle of your round. You're playing your average round of golf - you're not slicing your driver nor bombing it better than you ever have before. Just a normal day. Remember, TST members can save $30 off the LSW 4-Video Set: You won't regret the purchase.
  5. https://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/2018/11/01/bryson-dechambeau-putting-pin-2019-rules/ Duh. Yep.
  6. 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
  7. Hey everyone, sorry for being spotty with my presence here. Quit teaching high school after 7 years and entered a good law school. Finals are pretty tough. What little time I have had I've been able to swing on my gc2 a little bit and I've gained a lot of ballspeed in a year. I attribute it mostly to my strength level increases from powerlifting. Also, due to the long lay off, I don't have any swing thoughts or anything to bog me down. I just swing the clubhead like Ernest Jones talked about- just feel the clubhead throughout the swing and a freewheeling sling of the clubhead in the
  8. This past Monday, I played really well. I had been struggling with the longer clubs and the driver lately so beforehand I decided to move up a set of tees and hit irons to wide fairway spots. I executed well and matched my career low round on that course, which incidentally I hit using the same strategy. I have a tee time set at the same course on Sunday. I'd like to score better. There are a couple of decisions I'd like to take back from Monday's round, but for the most part I think my scoring was primarily due to hitting the ball well. I can't assume I'll hit the ball just as well (or b
  9. JB Holmes was 239 yards from the hole in the fairway: -10 was in the house, and he sat at -8. He needed an eagle. I think that, given the conditions, he chose incorrectly. He was much more likely to be able to hole a shot from around the green than to hole a wedge shot from 100 yards. I think the stats would back that up pretty easily, even accounting for the presence of a backstop. The ONLY reason to not just blast the ball toward the back of the green is if you literally think there's more than about a 10% chance of the ball finding the water. For someone with JB's power,
  10. Bob Ross, a 14-handicapper is 240 yards out from a par five after his tee shot. There are some greenside bunkers, from which the player is average for his handicap level, and little other trouble except way to the right and left where the usual group of trees and bushes separate holes on this lovely golf course. He chooses to hit his three-wood, which normally travels about 220, and promptly slices the bejeezus out of it into the happy trees. Was this a failure of strategy? Or execution? We can't say. Not without more information. If we knew that Bob normally hits his 3W 18
  11. Anyone got any tips or strategy for specific holes on Olivas Links? I am familiar with the course, and its links style allows a wide variety of approaches, so I figured it might be interesting to see what others think about this course. One example: I have been pondering using long hybrids instead of driver on 11 and 12.
  12. I can almost sense the collective cringes of those reading that title. We’ve seen newbies make this claim one week, only to post the next week how much they hate the game. I've certainly been guilty of it, though I’ve since learned my lesson. While most of the time we are talking about the one swing thought or swing adjustment that will carry us to single-digit greatness, other times it’s a can’t miss epiphany on the strategy that will have us navigating around the course like a pro. During yesterday’s round, I arrived at a par 5 that has a wide landing area for the
  13. I play the same course most of the time. Occasionally, I'll change which tees I play for some variety, but it's basically the same course for every round. I usually set a scoring goal before each round, but I don't actually have a game plan. After 50 years of playing I suddenly realized mapping out each shot on each hole would probably help me score better. I realize things don't always go as planned especially in golf. However, formulating a plan is what the pros do every day. That has to work better than simply hitting the ball, hoping one can find it, and then hitting it again. Your though
  14. I will be playing a Foursomes (match play) match and a Four Ball (match play) match. Any strategy tips? My partner has a similar game except he tends to drive the ball a bit further and I might be a somewhat better putter. It is too late for my partner to replace me - ha ha ha!
  15. I like to be prepared. Or at least attempt to be. I get fired up whenever I have a tournament coming up and I research as much as I can in the days and weeks leading up to it. I have one coming up in early December, for example, at a course I've played once before, and I have a yardage book - the professionally done ones you find at many resort courses on glossy paper with a little bit of room (not a lot) to add some notes. Notes are essential to me because if I have ideas about strategy in my head, they're frequently abandoned as soon as my name is called on the first tee and the nerves k
