Here is my latest video. Thanks for the tips in the last one. Iíve been working hard on the reverse pivot and the other drills you guys gave me and I have noticed some improvement. ďfeel isnít realĒ are my first thoughts when I watch these. I feel like Iím keeping my body super still, but I can see lots of movement. You will also notice that my left heel comes up sometimes when I donít think about keeping it down.

Questions:
1) Why am I Pulling my iron shots to the left?
2) How does the reverse pivot look?
3) Do I have a chicken wing? (look at 1:10)
4) What should I be working on now?

Looks a lot better!

From what I can see I think your upper body is too dominant. Complete your backswing and keep the upper body in place until your lower body starts rotating. Starting the downswing with your lower body will let your upper body follow and the club should naturally shallow.

Only other gripe would be that the back swing is a bit too long. Practice what feels like a 3/4 back swing. You'll be surprised how much you actually go back even with this mindset. My shortened back swing feels even less than that and on video the club is parallel to the ground. Like you said "Feel isn't real".

You potentially lose power if your lower body has finished rotating and your arms keep going.

I'm by no means a golf swing expert but just slowing down the first swing of the video I see you doing a couple things I have issues with myself. You finish your shoulder turn and your arms keep going back further, all that does is get your arms stuck against your chest and you have to scramble to get to a decent impact position which either results in a pull hook or a block. I also can't quite tell but watching at 0:10-0:11 at 0.25 speed it looks like you're bowing your wrist from what looked to be a neutral wrist position at the top of your backswing just before the 9'o clock part of your downswing and your clubface looks fairly shut right before impact. I'm sure there's better swing analyzers that post here but those were the two that I saw pretty easily.

Last place in round 1 at Trinity Forest yesterday was David Duval, who must have got an itch doing coverage last weekend and decided to head down to Dallas and put in a +9.

Out results for my work league came out yesterday and some dude put up a 69 as a 14 handicap!

In case you are wondering how to interpret that, we only play nine holes. Ouch.

The tip about arms stopping when the body stops is money. Takes time to fix that but arm over run makes everything more complicated.

Played in our men's league season opening tourney yesterday, only my second round of 2018 and it was under tournament conditions so I didn't score great but I did win a $400 skin, so that was awesome.

Congrats!

Iíve decided this year is all about skins, screw league standings. No more laying up or hybrids off the tee. Seems like whatever high-handicap team plays well the last two weeks of the season wins anyways since they have a much higher variation in scores than I do.

I serve...

A tale of the front versus the back.

Go to starter 5 minutes before tee time. I'm alone. The 3 ball I'm supposed to play with has not yet checked in. We wait. At my tee time he says, "Go ahead, tee off." I'm behind a 3 ball, then 4 consecutive 4 balls with an average age of 70, alternating men and women. I tell him I'll try to join the 3 ball ahead. On second hole, I'm on the tee box (par 3) while they are looking for a ball. They turn and see me...keep looking. Play out hole. I arrive at next tee box, they're walking up fairway. At shortest ball, they all stop, one turns, they all turn, look at me sitting in cart at tee. Turn back, play out hole. Next tee box, I'm sitting in cart next to tee, they're looking for ball in the rough, 100 yards away. Look back. Keep looking, take the full 5 minutes, play out hole. Next hole, I'm on the tips tee box, they're on the shortest tee box, waiting for green to clear on par 4 they need 240 to get on the green. Look back at me. Turn, play out hole. I should have just driven up to the tee box on that last hole and asked to join them, but by then I hated them with a fiery passion. After that hole, you drive by the tee to number 10, and the starter at 1, so he lets me go play the back 9. After 5 holes, I catch up with a 3 ball, also 3 women, average age same as above. But, I don't actually catch them. I'm on the green of a par 3, they have teed off the next par 4, and I've not yet had to wait on them. They turn around in the fairway, drive back to where I'm practicing putting on the green post holing out, and tell me to come ahead, play through. Very gracious, very nice.

Then, birdie 18 with a 20' breaking downhill putt. Typical golf round. Get pissed at humans, meet good humans, end with great stroke, can't way to play again. Too bad only 14 holes played, I was at 3 over when I quit.

Apparently The Golf Club has got the PGA licence, looks like they are adding some TPC courses and a career mode to the next game. Hope this means more real courses, players and equipment as well.

At least the PGA is doing something now instead of just letting EA do nothing since Rory's game.

What is the last golf game that actually used motion-capture for each player's swing? There is no reason to play as Jim Furyk if I can't use his weird rear end swing.

I got back from Maui last week and played both the Wailea Gold + Emerald courses then topped it off with a round at Kapalua Plantation course. It was heaven. A couple weird things happened while I was there too. The first set of rentals I got was a mix and match set but I grabbed them because my mp-53s were in them and I figured the rest of the stuff would be decent enough - R1 driver/3w, ping g20 hybrid, sm4 vokeys, daddy long legs putter. After 4 sliced tee shots in a row on the Gold course I looked at the driver and saw that it had been cut down to 41 inches or so, ended up going with 3w off the tee the rest of the time at wailea and left the driver in the trunk of the car. 41 inches seems way too short to cut a driver down to me but I've also never done it so who knows. Also I know the spider putters are obviously good and have won a shitpile of tournament money but the one I had was the most awful feeling putter I've used in a long time and I dreaded putting everytime I got on the green.

I did the deal at Kapalua where you get a 3 hour lesson, lunch, and an 18 hole round so it was pretty much a full day trip. The lesson was pretty decent, the putting and green reading was probably the most useful part for me that Ive used some of the tops I got back home. If anything it was nice to warm up with a pro watching you. The course itself was incredible although it rained so hard and combining that with 30 mph winds at times made for some interesting play. Also got to play with all new Titleist gear which was cool, the ap3 irons felt ok, new sm7s we're in good shape, but the driver, 3w, and hybrid felt really uncomfortable to use for some reason.

I played with a couple who were in the lesson with me and then another dude. Nobody in our group was super great but everyone seemed to be having fun since you're on vacation at one of the nicest courses in the country, although the course seemed to be getting kind of tilted over the weather and how rainy it was getting. The guy I was riding with and myself are PNW people though so were kind of used to it. That is until the 8th hole par 3 where both the guy and girl hit their tee shots in the massive ravine separating the teebox from the hole, random dude and I get on the green, we drive up to the drop zone and the couple says that they had plans and had to leave early, so they bailed. Other dude and I are just like , I'm not sure how you spend $360 to only end up playing 7 holes but w/e. The head pro even said so when he stopped by to check on us lol.

All in all, great trip and if you go to Maui the Plantation course is a must go. I'd bring my own clubs next time if anything for my putter and wedges I'm used to hitting. Also my partner holed out from like ~135 yards for eagle on the 12th which was sick as gently caress.

Ladies.

Is there a way to tell what specific shaft you have on your irons if you pulled all the stickers off? Iíd like to know whatís on my Mizuno JPX 850s. Manufacturer brand is there, but thatís it. Off the rack, factory standard everything, FWIW.

Shot a 74 today at one of the nicest courses in the area, made a few great putts and only really hit two bad shots the entire round. Playing on real turf when most of my rounds have been muddy this spring was such a nice change.

Get Tiger around +1400, Fleetwood around +4000, and Hoffman for a long shot at +8000 imo.


I ended up buying a Callaway rouge 3w and holy poo poo massive upgrade from my nike covert 3w. It's LONG and low spinning for me. Also thanks for the ball recs everyone, I switched to Q-star tours. Really liked the chromesofts too.

Here is a video I took of someone that plays in my league.

I had a tee time at 9:30 this morning at my favorite public course. We made the turn at nearly 1 PM. I got a rain check for 9 holes and left because me and my playing partners where miserable standing on the tee boxes forever. What Iím saying is this video makes me irrationally angry.

Wednesdayís are when we have a group of about 20 guys in our Ďbigí money game too. I had 4 skins on the front 9 and won the net lowest score last two weeks in this group too. No greenies sadly though. Other guy in my group had a couple skins on the front too. We said gently caress it and left anyway because it was so slow. Watching that video my only thought was I hope an alligator eats him.

Slow play can ruin an otherwise beautiful day on the course.


e: full disclosure- that description of our Wednesday group makes me sounds like I know what Iím doing. All the guys except me and my buddy are retired old people that play from the senior tees. Iím not actually that good lol

I don't think I've ever had a round that slow. The weekends tend to get slower around here but I just assume I'm going to be there for 5 hours if I tee off after 9 am. Normally my playing partners and I try to get a 6:30 time if it's a weekend and we're usually done in less than 4 hours with the grand majority of our group being comprised of total hacks.

I don't really want to play a 5 hour round but I also like being outside and enjoying the course so I also don't really want a 3 hour round either. 4 hours seems to be the ideal time for me.

Yeah. I'm with you. The first 7 holes I knew we were going slow but it was a beautiful day on one of my favorite tracks and I was grouped with three of my buddies so I was enjoying myself despite the pace of play. It just got to be too much though. We made the turn, got some food in the club house and went to 10 to still have to wait on the tee box. The guy in the clubhouse was super cool about giving us a raincheck for 9 holes though.

We travel around to different courses on Wednesdays and always have tee times between 8-9AM. We've never had a problem before since it's a weekday. I'd expect slow pace of play when we go on our golf trip to myrtle beach but we were in NE Ohio... Oh well, guess that's just how it goes sometimes.
