  1. I think you’re generally correct. Shallowing and all that... that’s what Tiger and Butch worked so hard to get rid of in his swing... coming to hard inside getting stuck and then having to over rotate the club face to compensate. I don’t care for your last point 3 about the plane... it doesn’t look like that exactly and the diagram gives one the idea that club, hands, and arms all fly directly at the ball. That simply isn’t true. The hands are on a steeper plane than the clubhead. But it’s very difficult to visualize multiple planes with your mind and try to do consciously... but if you just relax and swing you can do it easily enough. Been watching a bunch of Manuel De La Torre videos the last couple days. He tries to get you to focus on simply doing a simple task and not consciously dealing with the million complicated parts joints and sequencing that is the golf swing. Good stuff. Bet it would be right up your alley. He had the notion that a lot of golf instruction was bogus and people were copying the wrong stuff. Watch the 1987 clinic with him on YouTube.

  2. Even par my last 2 times out [emoji56] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Shot a 74 with only 25 putts. Only 10 putts on the front, which ties my personal best. Ball striking was meh but I scrambled well. And no 3 putts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I was 3 under after 11. Then the wind kicked up. Steady 27mph with some big gusts to boot. I think I made one par after that? It was brutal! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. A no-brainer from me: Evnroll ER8. https://evnroll.com/er8-tourmallet.html Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I thought it was gonna be the other way... hitting golf balls with a tennis toss and tennis racket on a golf course. Slightly larger sweet spot! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Grew up interlocking and switched to overlap in my 20’s... interlocking feels weird now! I sometimes use ten finger for draws or wedge shots. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. So the way they fit is by making you try every shaft over the course of a year? Sounds like they don’t really know how to fit for shafts! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Insert meme of the most interesting man on earth: “I don’t always hook my drive out of bounds, but when I do, I hook the second one out, too, then duff my 5th, hit my 6th to the wrong side of the green, and then finish with a three putt.” Sigh. [emoji17] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. That sucks, man! I’ve been on the receiving end of a few bad deals on Ebay, but they always panned out for me. I would not have refunded the money until he returned it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. 1. Dan. North Carolina. 2. 2 Handicap. 100 mph. 3. Taylormade M1. 4. Sub Zero! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!
  12. Been playing badly lately. Hitting hardly any greens. Then, I hurt my wrist teeing off on 17 the other day. Really yanked a tendon in my left hand. Realized I had way too much tension, too tight of a grip, and too hard of a set in transition. Had to change my swing up and make it looser and easier on my body. Took a little work but I figured it out and got back to hitting some greens! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. That’s like the story I heard about a preacher who always played with a guy who would do his cussing for him. Preacher hits a bad shot, tells his friend to cuss the ball, club, whatever. Friend lets it fly. FYI I’m a preacher, and it wasn’t me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. If it is modular then there is no inventory problem. Whatever surplus you have will eventually be used up. Likewise the whole “the hosel affects the center of gravity” is malarkey. The effect of one hosel versus another is going to be minimal. And in fact when putters are tested for true cog by the science-golf-types they rarely line up with the sight lines on the putter, so they aren’t even really engineering the cog the way that they would have people think! People play full shaft offset plumbers hosel or full shaft offset face balanced putters because that is largely all that is available! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. This kind of thing aggravates me with ALL the bigger producers. There is no good reason you shouldn’t be able to buy any head with any hosel you want. Every putter head should be drilled/milled/cast to accept a standard modular hosel or double bend shaft. You pick the head, then choose what hosel you want or a double bend shaft, so you have a nice set of options for toe flow or face balanced, no offset, 1/2 shaft, or full shaft offset... It’s such a straight forward solution to a known problem. And modular solutions are the cheapest solutions, too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
