  1. Seems to me you are chasing shot shape. 50/50 this is a swing issue or a strategy issue. Your words sound like you are chasing a pattern and hoping a ball does something rather than know it will do something. It is possible that you are aiming too much into trouble hoping that the flight will "bring you back." Ideally, the entire cone is placed so the majority of shots will allow for more access to the greens. As for the putt, you simply didn't get a good read. The bigger issue is it went 3-4' past the hole. Speed is more important than read.
  2. What if you aren't missing? Maybe your pattern is appearing exactly as it should and you have failed to place that dispersion correctly to the golf course?
  3. Play well and you have a chance to win. Play poorly and you have a chance to lose. Prepare to play well. All the other 'strategies' are made up and have zero statistical validity. The lowest score on each hole wins so go do that.
  4. Zoom invitations have been sent. Look forward to seeing everyone this evening.
  5. Even believing that you can eliminate one side of the golf course reveals a misunderstanding of the game. You never will so stop trying and come up with a better strategy. Look up the thread on shot shaping and search for the offer I made to the people in that thread.
  6. Zoom invites will go about around noon Sunday eastern time. Still time to signup!
  7. In spite of not hitting all the fairways is a very good question. I'm not sure I have a statistical way of saying yes or no unless I have access to each hole & his ball position. My gut tells me that it is more correct that he gained two strokes off the tee using proper strategy and length. His length may not apply to many but his strategy certainty does. Fairways are in no way bad but finding trouble when just trying to hit the fairway is a flawed strategy. Great question. Look back a few posts - join us on Sunday if you can.
  8. This is to everyone who has commented on this topic!! I'm not sure where to begin. This isn't an easy topic because it challenges everything that we believe is true about the game. For the moment, I want to share some data with you and premise it by saying that it doesn't matter than the player is on tour and makes a lot of money. Shots gained, in its truest form, compares how you played to everyone else in the field. Think of it as similar players. So if the stat/skill is true for a bunch of tour players the stat/skill will be true for a bunch of 18 handicap players. Bryson DeChamb
  9. Weird drill. It is useful for someone who is too steep or shallow.
  10. I don't care what the labels or names of the clubs. I want something 12-15 yard gaps between 90 yards to 200ish. After that about 20 yards. What I actually have is the following: 97, 115, 132, 145, 160, 174, 188, 200, 215, 225, 245, 265, 280+ ( this is a 58wedge, a 54 bent to 53, a 50 bent to 47, 9 iron - 4 iron, a weakened driving iron, hybrid, 3 wood, driver) Not many clubs are standard lofts. I gap to get the distances desired. Some are bent strong and some are weak with gaps between 3* and 5*. Some wedges are bent because they are what I had but most exists and are bent to get t
  11. I understand your frustration. I have heard or seen many tour players go to Club Champion for their club work. The important thing to note is that they are going to a specific person and they would go to them if they did fittings at Dick's Sporting Goods. It is more about the person than the company. It is very difficult to get uniformity across multiple locations of one company. Chick-fil-A has probably the best model for consistency of food and level of service. That is why they are so far past the competition. I didn't get many fittings wrong. When I did, I fixed it. One of th
  12. Well said. IMO - be careful with credentials. Often credentials or certifications are simply sitting through a class and then continuing to pay a monthly fee. It is the application of the what is learned that is important and the willingness to be a little bit of mad scientist and try stuff out and see what happens. There is more science and means of measurement than when I was doing to frequently. My years of 'trying' were always way more useful than the classes or other resources. One of the biggest problems with fitting is that the majority of players really don't understand th
  13. When I was running my academy, demo days were free and I was there helping the fitting. Outside of that, I had a fee for fitting and the club was not discounted or offset by the fitting fee. I was good and good often comes with a fee. I also never made false statements like a driver will make you hit more fairways and I would refuse to sell a club that went farther but lost accuracy. Some exceptions but not many!
  14. Maybe I have missed a post or two, but I have not seen a post the identifies what is actually required in a warm up. What tasks are required on the course? 1. Tactical decision or strategy. These are often pre-determined. Choices have already been made based on your strategy standards. 2. You have to be able to swing so a physical warm up must be employed. 3. You have to swing your pattern more or less. Pattern reminder movements. 4. You need to hit the ground in the same place. Line drill without a ball. 5. You have to hit the ball solid and in the center of
