  1. Years ago, a study showed that with tees that didn’t have a “bowl” for the ball to sit-in, there were additional yards gained due to less energy/friction needed to get the ball out of the “bowl”... Thus, we started seeing tees where the ball sits on just a few “posts” around the perimeter. I don’t remember the exact results, but mathematical calculations also showed similar findings.
  2. I saw that you have 110-115 mph swing, yet use just stiff shafts. Any reason you’re not in X-stiff?
  3. 82 (41/41), two birdies and three doubles on the front... Driving and putting were positives today, all approaches weren’t. 2nd lesson Wednesday....
  4. I mentioned this before we started, but I haven’t done fantasy since 1992... I had a week where half of my team was on a bye. What are we “supposed” to do on those weeks so we don’t lose our “real” players??? There was no way I was dropping half my team for one week’s worth of points....
  5. Same here.... I had JUST enough players active/not injured this week to field a full team.
  6. After chatting with Barba, all of the Srixon stuff is on my mind!!!!
  7. Well, needless to say, I’m very intrigued by both of those and am curious to hear about their performance. Of all drivers coming out next year, the Ping has my interest the most!!!
  8. Horrible, again. My putting is atrocious. I’m not even SCARING the hole anymore. My alignment to my what I’m aiming at has to be off. I’m going to start using the line on my ball for a couple rounds. The full swing is a challenge since I’m trying to incorporate the new move, so I’m not hitting any greens either. At least it was a pretty day!
  9. Went to the range to do my full swing drills, and then spent 30 minutes on the putting green using an alignment rod and some tees to work on my putter head path.
  10. Did y’all just hear Wie reference how she looks at the cut line early, and does her own calculation to guess what it might be??? She went to Stanford.... ”I generally multiply the current cut line by two, then multiply by 1/2.” Um...... That doesn’t EVER change the current number. -7 x 2= 14.... x .5= -7............... Wow.
  11. Pretty cool to be the student whose lesson became the topic of the Teacher’s YouTube video.
  12. I’m watching “Live From the Masters”. Brandel looks like he’s the size of a Yard Gnome next to Rich Lerner!!!! Good gracious!
  13. 81 (40/41). Thirty four putts! Ugh. My speed is AWFUL. First full round trying out my new swing from my lesson. It’s going to really be a good change for me, especially because my back isn’t hurting or tight right now! This is the first time in a LONG time where I feel I could play two days in-a-row, no problem.

  16. Using more loft when chipping has been proven to be less accurate, so I usually use my 8 iron. I may use something else if I’ve shortsided myself, but I’m much better with the bump-and-run.
  17. Yeah, you were in the wrong there. A golfer can’t put another ball in play and then decide to play their first ball. You used the agreed upon leaf rule, then decided NOT to use it... Can’t have it both ways.
  18. Flared my feet, left foot quite a bit, to be able to open my hip, more rotational on the downswing to take the pressure off my low back. My hip arthritis and back disease aren’t very good for the “classic” swing, so I finally got a teacher who could help ME and my limitations.
  19. Had a lesson via FaceTime yesterday, and hit balls today. The new move has resulted in ZERO back pain following range work for the first time in years!
  20. Make sure to add to the reviews that nowhere in their name is there a “w” sound... The shoes are, therefore, “SCARES”!
  21. Hmm. G425 Max, AD-IZ shaft, Left Dash ball???? Oooooooo. That might be one HECK of a combo!
  22. I had more birdies today than anyone round all year, 4.............. Had a bunch of doubles, lost three balls in the water, and had 36 putts! Ugh. 82 (40/42). Four birdies and played horribly. Can’t wait for my lesson Wednesday.
  23. Y’all need to get rid of Harbaugh.... AND Don Brown. Enough said.
