  1. Worst round in a long while today! I hurt my back about a month or so ago and as it has healed it has really tightened up. Experiencing a lot of lower back pain, tightness that just won’t let up. I’ve been stretching a lot to try to help and it does alleviate the pain for a bit. But today when I tried to play I could just not get loosened up. So stiff. Couldn’t sequence. I duffed 2 shots on the first hole. Opened with 5 bogeys in a row. But I still had fun!

  2. Yeah, having a floppy shaft will make you spray them. Sounds like the stiff works better for you. How far do you hit a 7 iron? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’m not sure what to think... it’s a heavy practice shaft. For $200. I think I’d just take a cheap shaft and add lead tape to it if I wanted to simulate a heavy feel for practice. I could see it being used by a teaching pro, though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I used to get that sense after a long practice putting session, an hour or so, like the hole just looked bigger. I’d sit out at 10 feet and could put it at will into the left edge, right edge, middle, fast or slow. It was a neat feeling. It’s been a while... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Won a scramble today. My back healed up just enough so I could play and we did alright. -14. We parred a par three and par 4 on the front, and a par 4 and par 5 on the back. All with 10-15 ft putts that we just couldn’t get to go in! Birdied everything else with tight wedges and tight approaches, except for one par 3 where we made a long putt.

  6. Sadly they don’t make a slant neck blade... yet anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I wonder if one could use a groove sharpener to widen the grooves in the middle to resemble an Evnroll face... the aluminum should scrape off easily I’d think... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Absolutely! And you can learn it. Here’s what you do. Guess your yardage first, then use your rangefinder to check your guess. You’ll get better and better. I started doing that 2-3 years ago, and at first I was pretty bad. Now I’ve gotten pretty good at it. Usually within a few yards. Sometimes a little off, and sometimes spot on. Hills and valleys in between make it more difficult, but not impossible. First step to learning it is getting real comfortable with what 10 yards looks like so you can add it up from a distance.

  9. I saw them several years ago in their tour for Storm the Gates of Hell. Maylene & tsod was with them. Great show. I wonder if they play golf? Alice Cooper does. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Elsewhere Moe says the swing is all knees. I wonder if he has something in common with Melhorn here; Wild Bill wanted the hips and shoulders to stay in line with each other (opposite of the X Factor stuff)— not that he actually did that but that was his feeling—but lots of knee action and footwork to make his swing work. Swing with the knees. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Leaving everything short, yep. I had an Odyssey tank rossie that was like that. Just a mushy face. It was fine on short putts but the farther i got from the hole the shorter it left them. I like my chipping feel and putting feel to be similar, so it just didn’t work for me. I could use an insert if it were a little bit firmer though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Edel has some good theories on lines vs dots. Some people are better at the perpendicular view and need dots or nothing at all, others need lines. Just noticed your handle and avatar. One of my favorite albums. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It’s not a new concept. Every few years one of these will hit the market. Recently Bridgestone had one out... about 4 years ago. And I remember infomercials for one when I was a kid... maybe around 1990? A guy in the group my dad played with got one. I think it would be useful as a training aid.

  14. Worked on grip, tempo, sequencing, lag, release, alignment. Just hitting 60-70 yard wedges. Mostly focused on using a half or 2/3 backswing and a very full follow through, which when put together help you to really delay your release so you get that sidearm skipping stone throw feeling. When I get it right it feels like Freddy Couples looks, like I’m just throwing the club to the target and oh there the ball goes too! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Ha! I think I’ll stick with North Carolina, but I would love to visit Scotland! Golf, scotch, and I’m scotch Presbyterian too! Whenever it gets rainy here and I’m playing golf, I say “It’s a beautiful scottish day.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
