  1. If you have a green reading sheet. Why can't you have something that helps you verify the accuracy the green reading sheet? It seems hypotcritial to me.
  2. This would be neat to watch. I agree all earnings should go to charity.

    Got Problems?

    Why do toll bridges look like they are about to fall over. If I have to pay to drive on it why can't you make it safe?
  4. I hit a high spinner from 80 and out. 80 is a full 58* for me. This shot gives me much more distance control but less directional control. Anything inside 80 is a knockdown bump and run 52*. This shot gives me much more directional control but less distance control. I prefer the low shot from inside a full swing for more control. If I have a full swing, I will just let it fly. I am totally self taught have never played with anyone better than a 25 handicap so I have developed what works for me.
  5. I do a drill where I swing with my eyes closed so it becomes more muscle memory. I think this helps me eliminate the varible of light or poor eyesight.
  6. If that is the type of head you want to see and the alignment aid is what you want; then that shaft is perfect for you. A double bend is for straight back straight through.
  7. The shaft bend controls the toe hang. You can have a face balanced mallet with a shaft that does not go to the center. A double bend shaft makes a face balanced putter. If the shaft continued without the double bend; it would go into the center however the double bend makes a face balanced- heel shafted mallet. A single bend shaft produce a heel shafted putter with slight toe hang. If the shaft continues straight with no single bend the shaft would hit the head in between the heel and the center producing slight toe hang. A flow neck shaft produces a heel shafted putter with a lot of toe hang. Without the flow neck the shaft would go straight into the heel. This produces a lot of toe hang. A center shafted putter is face balanced.
  8. The AP1's will be much more forgiving. Personally at a 10 handicap(which I know may not tell the whole story) I would go for the AP1's. The 775CB may not be forgiving enough. The clubhead is just as important as the shaft IMHO. I am a 9 handicap and play the 710 AP1's and love em.
  9. Sorry, I should have been clearer, I meant bulge and roll which is on all drivers is what Taylormade is marketing as Twist Face. I was in no way saying that Twist face is better.
  10. Would anyone like to bet how long before we get our first "entry"?
  11. I like playing in the spring albeit in Minnesota that is May or June. Mainly because there aren't any bugs yet, the course is in its best shape all year and after the first day of everyone being out; the courses aren't too busy.
  12. That is a really good drill. I am going to try this next time I am on the range. Thank you.
  13. If that is what you want to do, by all means do it. If that is what is enjoyable for you, by all means enjoy it. Enjoy what you are doing. We only play golf to have fun. I am not posting to offend anyone just providing my opinion.
  14. I always try to maintain good posture, alignment, balance, and a smooth tempo. If I try to swing too hard; I lose distance, ball striking, and get off balance.
  15. The 30 handicap that think they can buy DJ's golf game by gaming a tp5x are insane. The only way to get to have a decent golf game is hard work, dedication, and commitment. If you have a good ball striking, chipping, and putting, it doesn't matter what ball or clubs you play.
  16. Thank you for the chart. It says I need a 44.5''. My current driver is 46''. Then apparently I got lucky with how much the handle broke and have been right in not fixing it. I am hitting the ball longer and much much more accurately.

    This always helps me put full effort and attention into each swing. It also helps me get all of my weight through the ball and finish the swing instead of leaving all of my weight behind the ball.
  18. With the "bulge and roll" of a driver which is essentially "Twist Face" a strike on the toe makes the ball draw whereas a strike on the heel makes it fade. Lining it up on the toe will put more draw spin on the ball.
  19. I fix three or four a green too. The laziness of people astounds me. I see so many people drag their feet along the green while wearing spiked shoes. The damage done is almost irreparable. At my course Isually the first few greens are okay, then people either get lazy or start having a few too many beers.
  20. The top inch and a half of my driver shaft is broken and flopping around which makes me choke down an inch and a half. This has helped my diving immensely. I could get it fixed but I actually like it forcing me to choke down.
  21. Happy 4th!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Thank you to all current and former military members for keeping our country safe and free.
  22. I am not sure if I would enjoy that. It seems like an excuse to tear up the course and get drunk. Maybe just for the novelty but you have all day with 12 hours of daylight to play.
  23. I have never bought a new golf ball. I can tell a difference albeit a small difference between "premium balls" but I still play any premium ball I find scuffed, dirty, or in the woods for three years. I don't think at my skill level the difference in performance makes a large difference. Heck, the last round I shot 76 with a slazenger with a huge cart path scuff on it.
  24. I am definitely number 2 on that list. Yes, golf the game of imperfection is perfect for me.
