  1. Will give it a look, thanks Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. One of the interesting things about Game Golf is it gives you Strokes Gained stats for tee shots, approaches, putting etc. Not sure how useful that info is (only time will tell I guess), but I'd struggle to work that out on my own! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. Glad you're finding game golf useful. Have only put in 1 round so far so I'll see how it goes. Have you seen any surprises in your stats? I.e. Anything you didn't realise was a weakness? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. Hi all, I'm on a drive this year to get my handicap down by a few shots. I've had some lessons and am making progress with my technique. I'm also making more time to practice. As my practice time is limited to 2-3 hours a week, I want make sure I'm smart about what I work on. With that in my mind, I want to start tracking my stats so I can see what areas of my game are costing me shots. I've downloaded Game Golf and used it yesterday for the first time. First impressions seem good but I've had some teething problems uploading/editing the round. My questions to you guys... 1) Do you track your stats? If so, what do you use? 2) How do you use your stats to inform practice? 3) Have you seen noticeable improvements in your scores since adopting this approach? Be great to get your input...
  5. I think information overload is a very real danger with all the content out there but I think more and more instructors are stressing that there are many, many ways to be successful at golf. E.g strong grip, weak grip, 'across the line', 'laid off' etc.
  6. This is a very interesting question. A lot of instructors are producing content that is well intended but each and every golfer has a unique swing with many quirks (especially amateurs) and so a tip that is applicable to one golfer may not be for another. Most amatuer golfers (including myself) aren't capable of filtering out the useful stuff for them. I think there is a lot to learn from YouTube if you have a decent understanding of your swing and know what to look for.
  7. Ha this is me! Much prefer to be understated. Definitely think if you're bright/bold you need some game to back it up! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Agree with this. If that's not an option, however, make your range practice as similar to golf as possible. Don't hit the same club twice in a row. Imagine tight fairways and small greens. Go through your routine on each shot. It's very common to see people hitting the same club at the same target over and over. That's not golf! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. I like hitting 3 balls from the same spot but varying trajectory. So flop/mid/low. Never hit the same shot twice in a row. Then drop three balls in a different spot. Works for chips, pitches and keeps practice fun/fresh Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Wow. I would be there all week Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Thanks for the welcomes! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. I have one of these. Good if you can't get to the course to practice as much as you'd like. Agree that it's not as useful as putting on real greens for practice. I've only had it a couple of weeks so am not able to say I've seen an improvement in putting but it's fun to use and surely can only help?! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. Hi all, I'm a new member, looking forward to getting involved. Im a shameless golf addict, although not playing as much as I would like at the moment. Been playing for about 10 years. Handicap of 8 although I rarely play to it! Interested in equipment, the pro game and instruction. Cheers HunkaTurf Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Have you tried practicing hitting out of the heel? I'm a big fan of Adam Young's Practice Manual where he advocates experimenting with strike location. If you can hit the heel and toe on command then you have a better chance of hitting the middle more often. Possibly a bit of left-field suggestion but one to consider...
