Re: Just Keep Swimming

So I read about super speed training. It involves heavy and light clubs. But essentially you just focus on swinging as fast as you can w/o hitting the ball. Since shortening my swing I've noticed my ball speed drop from 155ish to 145-150. But I was making more solid contact so it was going as far or...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Played a 4 person scramble today. On and off we got through 9 holes after it was decided to shorten it to a 9 hole tournament. Played 3-4 of those holes in massive rain. We won with a score of -7. After 5 holes it was decided to shorten it to 9. We were offered to "par out" if we wanted to turn in t...

Re: Reduced flight balls closer than we think?

I agree. I'd like to see something that compares club head speed over time.

Even though that isn't something you'd be able to get good historical data on.

Re: Southern Grasses

I grew up on bermuda grass. It took me a long time to get use to bent grass. To this day I prefer bermuda. Reading the grain is super easy, bermuda grows with the slope. So up hill is into the grain down hill is with the grain. This sucks when you are chipping/pitching on an uphill lie. But if you r...

Re: Reduced flight balls closer than we think?

I was bored and wrote this response... I have mixed thoughts. When I play golf with other recreational players the thought of "man these guys hit it too far" never crosses my mind. Most of them need to hit it further not shorter. I have worked hard on my game and I'm to a point where I feel distance...

Re: Wedge Finish Choices

Also I went to the driving range this morning just to verify I could hit a draw SW 115-120, and a punch PW the same distance. I was successful except the SW was just the tiniest of draw not really a 5-10 yard draw. I mean I could make it draw that much but it got much less consistent. I was able to ...

Re: Wedge Finish Choices

Sorry for the Doug-esque post. So there are 2 different type of LM's. Radar and photo-metric (camera based). I did a lot of research before pulling the trigger. Hell I think my 2017 goals on this site said to get a LM for my house. The radar based ones are great if you have a lot of room to work wit...

Re: Wedge Finish Choices

What type of launch monitor are you using? I mean I don't have that happen with skytrak and it's the cheapest one (well other than mevo, and optishot). It does occasionally happen but that is when it doesn't pick up the spin correctly, and it's super noticeable. Like a SW going 145 yards and having ...

But really to dougs point. I have a lot of data that I'm able to cross reference between launch monitor data and on course data (game golf). I tend to make decisions from data.

Re: Wedge Finish Choices

Ok so I messed around with the launch monitor and can drop my gw and fill the gap with my PW and sw already. I really only used my gw for 110-120 yard shots. I can hit a really consistent draw sw that carries 115. I can also choke up and hit a PW the same yardage 115-120 when the flag is on the righ...

Re: Wedge Finish Choices

Does anyone know if it's possible to strengthen the loft on a wedge and grind the sole in a way that you don't lose any effective bounce after bending it? I am really close to pulling the trigger on the 2i, and my plan was to drop my PW (my gaping between GW, PW and 9i is kind of tighter than other ...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Has anyone bought anything from fairway golf USA?

I am seriously considering the P790 2i sight unseen. It worries me a little because it's supposedly new but cost is about $50 less than I could get it direct from TM.

Re: golf is hard

It was really hard out there today. We weren't quite as cold, just under 60. But I never took my jacket off thanks to the wind. Also the greens were rocks today so hitting into one down wind and holding it was tough. Even with a wedge. 16 is par 5 with an elevated green that slopes front to back. On...

Re: golf is hard

I shot 87 and I'm proud of it.

It was a shit show with the wind today. My chipping is what killed me, thin fat thin fat. With some normal chips it's easy a 81-83. And on that course with 20-30mph winds I'm happy.

Re: golf is hard

I'm playing today and the wind is kicking. Last night it was blowing so hard my dog wanted to sleep on me. He's 40lb trying to sleep on my chest.

This went on for a good hour. Needless to say I didn't get much sleep.

Re: The role/function of hands in golf

So I think this is just a misunderstanding of the saying. I can't imagine anyone believing that the hands shouldn't move in the swing. But I feel what they mean by "passive" is just loose and relaxed. Isn't the entire point of Ben Hogan's waggle to releave tension in the wrists. For me they are very...
