  1. He didn’t jump the other dogs as often. He will still do it from time to time. He has turned into a great dog.
  2. I suspect he assesses each golfer individually and implements the appropriate fix. My buddies all have different swing drills that they work on for their specific needs. Out of curiosity, which instructor uses reverse foot terminology? I have never heard it described like that before.
  3. Wild thing, Everything that Mike Bender uses in a drill is an exaggeration. He says to make a change you have to exaggerate the move in practice drills.
  4. We got our dog neutered at 18 months because he started to hump the other dogs at daycare. Daycare said it was time if we wanted him to continue to go.... I agree that you need to wait as long as possible to let their bones, ligaments, and tendons reach full maturity and density. We may not have done it if we didn’t need him to be at daycare on a regular basis.
  5. That’s a good one. This is the post describing what I feel during my swing.
  6. Wildthing, i am not sure if that is how he classifies the pivot or not. The intention is to feel as though your arms start the downswing. Once the club is parallel to the ground then I feel as though I am firing my hips as hard as I can. I am not an instructor and I did not stay at a Holiday Inn so my description may be way off base. All I know is that it works. I believe Mike trained under Mac O’Grady so I believe there is some influence from him.
  7. Mike Bender is awesome! I have his book and all the necessary training aids to set up all the practice stations that he recommends. My instructor works with Mike Bender and teaches his method. Many ways to swing a club but I got Benderized 18 years ago and my game went from Hacker City to being a respectable golfer.
  8. I am happy to say that I have broken out of my plateau. I knew something good yesterday when I played with someone who always outdrives me. I was blowing it by him on several holes. It was wet and I got zero roll. I was getting yardages on the fly that I normally get with carry and roll. Today...I broke multiple personal records. I had 107 with red stick on regular swing and I hit 124 with left handed step change swing.
  9. I was thinking my swing speed radar may be broken. It doesn’t register above 120. Lol.
  10. Don’t know if this will help you or not. I have a flat swing plane and can struggle with a 3 wood as a result. I have a Callaway Rogue Heavenwood that I hit like a beast. Favorite club in my bag. Something about the extra length combined with that loft works all day long. YMMV.
  11. I don’t think I would change grips if I were you. I second Rev Kev on the lesson. Build your speed and learn to control it through lessons. Just my two cents.
  12. 120 with the green stick today. Highest number yet. Left handed to boot. I am definitely in the plateau stage. How long did it take most of you to make your next jump?
