  3. Wow... this is an indictment of the school system. How the F*** did subject 1 pass high school AND college? As a point of interest, I'm homeschooled, and last year for geography, I had to memorize all 197 countries, the country's capital, and the country's flags.

  5. First I want to thank all of you for the support through last year. I had some great success and some frustrating defeats. I made great strides in my swing and mental toughness and I still have a long way to go. This thread will be where I post my schedule and prep for the upcoming season, you can also follow on instagram @KCLeonardGolf. I have a very busy schedule this year with more high level tournaments than I played last year. I will be playing the VGA again this year. I have the SCGA Mid-Am, US Mid-Am, All Navy Tryouts, All Armed Forces(if I make All Navy), I plan on playing in 2 ci

  6. ... This reminds me of a training film I narrated for a financial advisor in KC many years ago. It showed how investing $50 a month (if I remember the $ correctly) starting in your early 20's would make you a millionaire. I commented may people in their 20's just aren't ready to invest barely covering their bills with their paychecks and while his response was about investing, it applies to so many other walks of life "The best time to start investing is when you are young. The second best time is right now". So sounds like you are taking his advice and starting right now.

  10. I like this drill too. If you want to add a little pressure, putt these until you make 10 in a row. Make 9, miss one, start over, those last few do start to put some pressure on you. Another drill, go to your local hardware store and buy a metal yardstick. Put a ball in the little hole at one end, and practice at home until you can roll the ball off the end every time.

  11. I just updated to the new version (12/19/20018) and also recalibrated my android smartphone gyroscope sensor. All worked out! All shots where recognized and stored. No issue with battery life. My battery went from 55% down to 39% within 18 holes or 3.5 hours. There seems to be a decent development for Android users, well at least for mine. best, Henning

  13. Just remember that the Trackman device is measuring club head speed at the ball while the radar is before the ball - there has to be a difference. Plus I believe it extrapolates club head speed based upon ball speed. I will take ball speed every time because that's what is going to determine distance. Increased ball speed really gets me amped! I should add is that my ultimate goal is to get to 140 here.

  14. 40 degrees today but no wind so could play in a compression top and jumper. Hit the ball pretty well but still shot 82...........my short game is pretty poor this time of year. Spoke to the pro and signed up for 6 lessons as he is a Driver and wedge expert and hits the ball like I can only dream of

  15. Guys, this is awesome. It might be the coolest thing I've ever purchased. [So much for subtlety in a review.] I've still got a ways to go before I'm ready to write a full review. But my early impressions are very positive. The biggest downside: there are too many shots it simply fails to read. For me, it has especially struggled on full and high wedge shots. Did a test today with two different patterns on the ball: lines and Truvis-like pattern (I have a little template for each of these). The lined ball seemed to be doing better, until Kirke shanked it into the dark corners of

  16. Oh, something else I've found in my own putting, I have an occasional tendency to let my eyes follow the putter as it swings back and forward. That seems to cause my body to move just a little, which makes my line control very erratic. You might try to concentrate on a specific spot on the ball, or a point ahead of the ball, or even the hole itself, anything to keep your eyes from following your putter.

  24. What I would call basic knowledge information that was taught when I was in school isn't considered essential anymore. Kids are taught that this type of information can be "Googled" if needed. I wonder what is considered essential now? I'm almost afraid to ask.

  28. We must have been watching at different times because it's as if we were watching two different tournaments. I saw lots of mid irons into greens and very few players reaching 18 in two. I saw guys having to curve the ball both ways to fight the wind, land the ball on very specific spots if they wanted to get it close and with tons of options around the green, going up to take the break out of using the contour to hope to kick the ball to the hole. What more do you guys want? I guarantee that you won't see a lot of long irons because lots of players don't have long irons in their b

  31. I too have the same issue. Putting a bit here last night even, this problem reared up. The second I began looking at the back end of the ball all the way through the stroke and keeping my head down and focused on that spot long after the ball was away...MAGIC!

  32. Put balls around a hole in a circle at 3 feet and just keep making them. Make after make after make It really works - once you’re on the course it becomes just like the drill if you’ve made enough of them. Good luck Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  35. First off, too soon to talk Masters??? Didn't think so... I read an article yesterday about the menu Patrick Reed is planning for his Champion's dinner; Bone-in rib eye, mac and cheese, creamed spinach & creamed corn...? Interesting sides if you ask me and indeed I'd eat any of them myself, but thought them to be a little odd to pair up with what I consider the best choice of steak one could offer. These must be personal favorites of his and perhaps regional to where he is from, but for me I'd be simple with a Caesar salad to start and serve the steaks with king crab legs, baked (or e

  39. You guys in the midwest aren't familiar with these desert weeds. These weeds also grow in normal golf course rough if the rough is thin, so it's not just areas off the normal course. I have them growing in parts of my lawn. They are attracted to irrigated areas, and the only way to really get rid of them is to choke them out with grass. It's a never ending battle, because my irrigation water comes from ditches where they grow, so seeds come in with the water.

  46. Would you believe 50 and sunny in northwest Ohio today. Got to the driving range today - the driver worked great. - very pleased with the progress I've made especially on the narrow ball dispersion. Distance wasn't great but I'm focused on accuracy and those range balls were pretty beaten up rocks. Once that brain/muscle memory is locked in distance will be worked on. Short irons worked pretty well also, long irons not so much. My wife got me 2 - 1/2 hr lessons for Christmas and my birthday so I guess I know what I'll be working on with my instructor. BTW I hate hitting off the mats wi

  48. I used the exact same SwingSpeed radar unit for each of my testing periods. I was also at an indoor Trackman simulator for the Week 6 and Week 14 (today) test, and the SS radar was consistently 3-5 mph higher than what Trackman would register. For $100 versus a $20k Trackman the radar is pretty accurate and consistent.

  49. Quick PSA about the tester badges: 1) If you tested this year, you got a 2018 badge. No need to request these. 2) To get a 2019 badge, you must complete Stage 2 in any 2019 test. 3) These badges will be on a 2 year roll. So once 2020 hits, the 2018 badge will go away...and so on. Carry On
