  3. I love my Ft Worth irons. Could these be better... Steve from British Columbia. I'm 46 and play off a 4.5 hcp index. Current irons are the Ft Worth Hi 3,4,5,6 (20, 23, 27, 31 degrees), Ft Worth 7,8,9, PW (35, 39, 43 and 47 degrees), TK wedges 51, 55 and 59 degrees.
  4. Steve, BC 8 I get a lot of spin on my short irons and probably a little too much spin with my driver. MTB Black sounds ideal. Currently play the Taylormade TP5 and Srixon Z-Star. Thank you.
  5. Great suggestion. Thanks Kenny. I'll start my flexibility/mobility and strength training/conditioning next week. Totally agree. 6 months of reinforcing bad habits would be pretty devastating. I've found a pro in the UK - Dan Whittaker. He coaches Rick Shiels and Peter Finch. I've been in contact and will try for something like monthly lessons.
  6. Thanks man. I've been doing some research on launch monitors...not cheap. I'll look into one called the Mevo by Flightscope. It's $500. I'll keep you posted.

  8. Lots of great courses here in the Kootenays. You'll love the prices with the exchange rate. I'm up for a game anytime!
  9. Thanks again guys. Speaking of the mat/net/garage idea... A buddy and I are looking into finding space in town and getting a launch monitor. We thought between 10 or 12 golf nuts, it'd be pretty doable. We'll probably have to do this next year. Don't love the idea of not hitting balls for 6-7 months...
  10. 465 yard uphill par 5 at the course in town. Plays very long and was very wet. Hit a decent drive, it carried 265ish with zero roll. Pin was at the back, giving me about 210. Hit the best 4 hybrid of my life...to within 3 feet. Drained the putt for my first ever eagle there. My eagle putt on the following hole lipped out. Pretty psyched to finish minus 3 on the last two holes. Love this game...
  11. Great advice from Canucklehead. A strong posterior chain will help you on so many levels. Here's a rough idea and a few thoughts on my training this winter: Lots of trap bar deadlifts. A lot of people agree that it probably has the best "real world carry-over" of any gym exercise. It's not that technically difficult, chance of injury is fairly slim (with decent technique) and you can lift a loft of weight with this one. A good guideline is 2X your body weight for adequate strength. I also really like the Jefferson deadlift. It's a bizarre looking old school lift, but addresses rotational aspects more than other lifts. It's great at ironing out asymmetries and can be used to rehab back (especially SI) issues. Just google Dellanave Jefferson deadlift for a tutorial. Those are the only lifts I'll be doing for strength. Keeping reps in the 3-5 range typically. For upper boy, I'll focus on push ups (typically on rings), pullups and inverted rows (with rings). I'm also going to experiment with the Pallof press to address rotational strength. I'll also look into jumps and medicine ball throws too. I'll do strength work 2-3X per week. I've got a bunch of Kettlebells at home and will do a few swings and Turkish Get Ups most days. If you've got any shoulder issues, Turkish Get Ups are a fantastic way to rehab them. I'll do mobility work daily too. That's the rough plan. I'll update more as I progress.
  12. Thanks for all your input. Much appreciated. I'll see what I can come up with and will keep you posted. Year round golf... sounds amazing!
  13. I'm in Nelson. Three hours west of Cranbrook. I'm about to order a putting mat...really hoping to improve my putting stroke this winter. I'll have a look for that forum. Thanks man!
  14. `Thanks! I sure with we did. The closest one is a 5 hour drive...
  15. Hi Guys! Psyched to be part of the community! Just discovered this website and freaking love it! Bought the Ping Cadence Ketsch Mid (slight arc) based off this review. Can't believe the change in my putting... So thanks MGS for the fantastic data. The snow line is descending here in the mountains and sadly this weekend will be my last round until April or May. Damn you snow... So my question: How do I maintain/improve my game over the winter (6-7 months off)? My plan is to hit the gym pretty hard and really up my strength. Lots of core work and rotational resistance training. And hopefully grooving my swing. I'm looking at getting an Orange Whip. I'm also looking at the Zepp swing path trainer and the Blast Motion Golf sensor (Blast is for my putting). Also looking at the Superspeed golf system to up my clubhead speed. What do you think? Any advice would be awesome. Also, is there another forum I should be posting this question in? Thanks!
