    Dinner with Tiger or Phil? Who would you choose?

    Tiger. Phil probably wouldn't even eat being that he is already so full of himself

    POLL: Mobile access to the forum

    My data usage has been up and when I checked the details my chrome data was much higher than usual. The only thing I changed was using the mobile site instead of the app. Think about it, the app only needs to download basic text and a few pictures. However every time you refresh the browser with the mobile site your reloading a lot if images, tables, formatting etc.

  5. It's funny you mention the yellow cobra on the crown - I didn't really care for it either. It's wonder if the white version of the driver comes with a white logo on the crown. Dense is the perfect way to describe the sound/feel of this driver

    Back to the app for me. Mobile browser version uses noticeably more mobile data.
  7. Interesting article. I know the top club fitters like TXG really were picky with the mats they chose. Ian at TXG stays the ones they use give identical feel and numbers to hitting off tightly mowed grass.

    I think I'm going to back to using the app. Using the mobile version of the site uses noticeably more data.

    Weight Loss Thread

    I belong to a gym that has some awesome group classes.
  10. Thought we could have a thread to hear about what equipment is on everyone's mind? Thinking about pulling the trigger on something? Waiting for a release date? Drooling over something but just dont have the funds? What equipment is on your mind?

    Weight Loss Thread

    Did a fantastic Kettlebell workout class at the gym today! Down to 9% body fat and skeletal muscle mass continues to trend up!
  12. So I have alluded to my incoming swing overhaul in numerous threads, but thought it would be fun to document everything in one thread as I progress. I have taken lessons before, but they have always been to patch up a swing fault and keep me going. However, I reached a tipping point this year - my current swing limits me. I am a low single-digit handicap, but I get frustrated because of my lack of consistency. I hit the ball far with my driver (270+ carry), but I am inconsistent with my irons and wedges. My scores bounce around between the low 70s and mid 80s. The reason for these large fluctuations in scores is the nature of my swing. I am long and lean and I have a lot of moving parts that require so much precise timing to work. When my swing is on, I can hit my driver near 300 on command and I can flush my irons, but when my timing is just a little bit off, I get a two way miss off the tee and hit a lot of weak flares with my scoring clubs. 7 iron swing below: Knowing that my golf game would never become more consistent unless I made some big changes, I spoke in detail with my instructor about my goals. He told me about a winter program he offers. It is a series of 8 lessons over 3 months where we can really get my swing where it needs to be. I signed up for the program and my initial lesson is Thursday, January 3rd. Things we will be focusing on: - Wrist angles: I get far too much wrist extension in my backswing (back of hand moves towards arm). I need to focus on keeping my wrist flat or even adding a little bit of flexion. This will really help me control the face to path relationship more consistently and eliminate my reliance on aggressively releasing my hands close to impact in order to square the face. - Weight shift: I need to continue to focus on not letting my weight get to the outside of my left foot during my back swing. I need to focus on keeping my weight on the instep of my right foot as well as not get over my toes as I begin my downswing - Hip Rotation: I need to consistently rotate my hips on the downswing and not sway towards the target or thrust towards the ball. Hopefully working on all of these things, as well as anything else my instructor identifies, will help me become a more consistent ball striker. I look forward to keeping track of my lessons and practice sessions in this thread, complete with photo and video updates. Links to Lesson Updates: Lesson 1 (1/3) Lesson 2 (1/10)
  13. So I finally joined the club and got a Clicgear 3.5+ What push cart are you using and what bag is along for the ride? Let's see some pics of the full setup too!

    2019 Srixon Z-Star & Z-Star XV Golf Balls

    I've been playing the ZStar XV since the TaylorMade LDP Red went away! I agree that the 2017 was not my favorite ball - I actually switched to the TaylorMade TP5x for a good 18 months just based on the feel. I have been gaming the 2017 XV for about 5 months now and I don't mind how firm it is as much as I did when it first launched. That being said, the 2017 was more firmer than I would have liked and I am excited to see that the '19 XV is a little softer.

  22. It's amazing how two eyes can see something different. As someone who misses left I could never game a driver that looks closed to me. Love how square the TS2 sits to my eye
  23. Also forgot to add that my local range is the best. It's where I take my lessons and do all of my practicing. With the winter program I am doing I asked the owner about the best place to buy a golf mat for my basement for practicing drills etc. He offered me one of their used mats for a fraction of the price it would cost me to buy one of the same quality. Can't wait to start practicing on it after it dries out a bit
  24. I am not a Pelz guy either. If you are looking for some great short game and putting reads, I highly suggest Dave Stockton. His Unconcious Putting and Unconcious Scoring books are just absolutely fantastic and really helped me simplify my wedge play and putting
  25. Awesome man - looking forward to following along. Self improvement is tough but you are going into it with a great perspective and attitude. Other than the Strike Plan, are there any other resources you are using?
