  1. Two daughters in college now and one more will be in two years. $ave a$ much a$ po$$ible!
  2. Sounds like you’ve found a situation that fits your needs, and with it being non-equity, you have no long term commitment.
  3. If you can afford it and it fits socially, then go for it. Let’s see, what’s not to like? usually much better practice facilities pace of play is better than public = by a great deal near me tournaments and competitions are lots of fun locker rooms, bag storage, attendants demo clubs from pro shop get to test all the new stuff when the OEMs come to do demo days staff are super focused on getting you whatever you need (hustling for tips, but never any sense of entitlement to one) usually nice restaurant and grill room spontaneous access - you can usually just show up and play Potential cons, lots of which are related to having paid up front and being locked in Course maintenance issues for any number of reasons (weather, personnel, etc.) Add on fees (these should be anticipated going in) changes to membership - groups coming or going changing the morale or comeraderie of the membership if an 18 hole club, a sense of lack of variety i was fortunate to be able to go private several years ago, and I have loved it. Definitely not a value proposition in terms of $/round, but I appreciate all the extras enough for it to be worth it.

  5. Thanks RevKev. After posting, I reread a dozen pages or so of the thread to remind myself that gains, plateaus, and losses are all to be expected. I also need to make time to practice. I’m spending time on over speed training, it seems like I need to figure out a way to overcome the time issues and add balance to the off course work.
  6. I’m now in the middle of week five and my speeds are dropping: Green Blue Red Right Left Right Left Right Left Week 1 130 123 120 119 120 111 Week 2 128 122 115 114 113 111 Week 3 123 121 119 112 110 109 Week 4 118 114 112 105 110 103 So far in week five, my speeds are down even more. I understand this is somewhat expected, but it is puzzling. My body feels a little stronger and more flexible, but just not able to get the moves correct to generate more speed. On the course I’ve had quite a bit of difficulty. I haven’t done any practicing between rounds, so the only swings I’m taking between rounds are super speed swings. I’m not hitting fairways and the hooks are showing up in my irons too. I would love to get to the range during the week, but family and work time constraints so far have made that impossible. I have seen some improved distances - on our longest par fours I’ll be hitting PW-9 in, but at the end of the round I’ll have 2 birdies and 4 lost balls. Im going to stick with it and try to get some practice in, maybe have a brief lesson to see if there’s some swing duct tape that can get me going again.
  7. Yes for me, as described above. I think I need to make sure I get some range time in to make sure I can keep the club (particularly driver) swing a good golf swing.
  8. Thank you RevKev. I think I will reach out to them, it can only help. I will have to figure out how to differentiate and focus on fast as opposed to hard. I don’t want to think about mechanics on the course (of course :-)). It’s good to hear you describe the improvement in your iron striking. One of the things I’ve noticed is that my iron ball striking has improved quite a bit. Really crisp, centered, squared up. Stock distances are now former max distances.
  9. Thanks for the kind words. I believe that the training works based upon the evidence from this thread, its adoption on tour, and the endorsement from the pros at my club. I think I need to keep up with swing practice as diligently as I am following the protocol to gel it all together.
  10. Maybe there is no correlation between the training and actual driver swing, maybe there is. I certainly hope that I can get back on track.
  11. 2/3’s of the way through week three now. So far no bumps in max speeds in training. I had a range session last night to try to work through the driving trouble I had on Saturday. I warmed up, went to the short game area and had a good session. Moved on to the range and was really pleased with the mid irons. Crisp strikes, on target, very consistent. When I took out the 3w and driver, I had all sorts of difficulties executing a swing. I kept swinging as though I was trying to knock the cover off the ball with the consequent effect that I was off balance with poor tempo and shots going everywhere but down the range. It took me about an hour to regain some control and actually swing, not HIT! KILL! the ball. I feared I might be susceptible to this sort of thing, my teachers have always worked hard to get me out of hitting mode and into swinging mode. Has anyone else struggled with this? Anyway, I do find it curious that my iron striking has improved while I’ve gone into hit mode with the driver.
