  1. It is probably the one I was actually looking for. I have seen another one that I think did a better job of explaining. This is why instruction is so important. You have to see what the player is doing and find something that works for that player. My problem was that I was firing both the hips and shoulders at the same time and causing my hands to go out and not down. This is why we worked on isolating the hips to start the lesson; the thought was keep back toward target and get the thighs in line again. This one move did quite a few things for me. It shortened my swing and prevented
  2. Self diagnosing your swing is very difficult and then you have to find the right fix for that problem. I had a lesson yesterday and we worked through a lot of things to try and fix a toe strike. We tweaked the backswing, hip turn, and a few other things. My problem after quite a bit of diagnosis and reviewing launch monitor numbers is that I have a flying right elbow. The elbow separation causes a myriad of compensations to try and fix make an effective swing. getting someone to look at your swing is always a good idea.

  4. It does. When I read your How'd you play posts it seems like we are on the exact same path.
  5. MAybe one day I will head over and watch a launch. Will have to see how cloudy it will be. I think it is supposed to be windier too so it may get delayed again.
  6. Yep P2. That is where; as my coach has described, applying the breaks and the body begins to recenter. The AMG guys talk about it in this video. Think of throwing a baseball. Your arm is still going back while your body starts moving forward.
  7. scrubbed until tomorrow
  8. Hope the changes help. Had my lesson today; made quite a few tweaks and hoping that I can incorporate them.
  9. Testers for the Motocaddy have already been selected and testing is underway. You can read the ongoing reviews on the main forum. This is the application for the Callaway driver testing. If you go to the top of the page there is a description and within the description it says to click on the button that says Sign Up. From there you will be taken to a form that asks you the necessary questions. Testers for the Motocaddy have already been selected and testing is underway.

  10. Do you make an adjustment after you hit one bad tee shot or one bad iron shot or one bad putt? While you may not be happy, you probably just try to make a better swing next time. Bad rounds happen; why do you need to change anything if you have been playing good golf up until then.
  11. My current schedule is: Thursday grp 14, approx 8:21, tee 10 Friday grp 41, approx 1:43, tee 1 Saturday grp 16 approx 11 tee 1 Sunday grp 32. approx 1:30, tee 1 Sat and Sun will probably vary a little based on number of players making the cut and adjustments that need to be make to add/remove scorers from the schedule. Eager to see who I will be walking with this year Maybe you will be the person that provides the driving distance to the scorers.
  12. Good lesson today but I have a lot of work to do to correct the issues with the toe strikes. Had issues with backswing, transition, and elbow. Some of the problems in my current swing are backswing too long, not separating the lower and upper body, elbows are separating which are causing excess ulnar deviation. These all resulting in my swing needing a lot of timing to pull it off. So some days it worked and some it didn't and as my results have shown the timing could fail part way through a round. Here is how we progressed: Started with back swing - Need to turn the uppe
  13. My interpretation is that the marking of the ball wasn't a problem. Per rule 9.5B Exception 2: Marking and Lifting Player’s Ball on Putting Green by Mistake: There is no penalty when the opponent marks the spot of the player’s ball and lifts it on the putting green in the mistaken belief that it is the opponent’s own ball. https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rule-9.html You could have avoided the penalty had you switched balls when you noticed the ball was not yours and putted with your ball. Your opponent correctly took a penalty for playi
  14. If the images and instructions provided in this thread aren't helping, post a photo of what you are seeing under that dropdown.
  15. The physics is definitely interesting. You can go lighter and faster to a point that there isn't enough mass to generate the ball speed or you can go heavier (increase mass) and slower and get more ball speed until you get too slow. Always tradeoffs that need to be figured out by the golfer. Are you thinking of a driver change or just playing?
  16. Let me know where you are marshalling or when you are working. I will be scoring everyday and would love to say hello. The walking scorer group is pretty consistent year after year but they do get a few new people every year. Gotta get signed up quick especially since returning volunteers get to sign up early. I started as a standard bearer and that is a great committee as well; even sub for them when they are short. The only reason I switched was because adults only work 2 days of the tournament.
  17. I don't think there is really an issue doing that since we really don't know the metric that will be to determine the winner.
  18. Interesting strategy; play a bunch of rounds and then figure out which one to enter.
  19. It is definitely all relative. When you can't break 100 you say you would be happy to score in 90s; until you do. When in the 90s you want 80s and then 70s and then 60s. It becomes even more frustrating when your scores go the other way since you still feel like you can play better.
  20. Hate greens like that. There are a few with similar features that really challenge you if you are on the wrong part of the green.
  21. I had 2 of 5 make it to the weekend. Not optimistic that I will get any wins as I am losing all but 1 of my matchups.
  22. You play your round and enter your score. At the end, they will announce the metric that use for scoring and who wins. The only hint we have is that it has to do with putting. Any course (18 holes), any location.
  23. I have used launch monitor data to improve. Haven’t seen a drop in handicap yet as the improvements have revealed issues in other areas. I would also say the use of launch monitor numbers will vary significantly based on the skill of the player and what you are trying to change. For someone looking for large changes vs changes in degrees a launch monitor may or may not be necessary. I have used launch monitor data to send/review information to my coach as baseline information to support the video or in person lessons. While not chasing specific numbers, we show for example that m
  24. It isn’t the leaderboard. When you are setting up your round there is a “tour event” drop down. For ther you can select The next event.
