  1. if you get the place and want to meet in the middle, lets play a round together! Dude! the goonies were filmed there!
  2. A break down of how my swing is coming along. Biggest takeaway , my takeaway I need to feel like I am bringing in majorly inside for it to be neutral. Then need to feel my lead arm get vertical, then pump and feel my right shoulder rotate around my spine. I still need to feel a little more downward hand action in transition to shallow. I’m getting there and it looks a hell of a lot better than three months ago.
  3. Range work and some simulated holes. Driver strikes were great but realized I’m early extending. I just need to keep grinding on drills with my coach to get my mechanics better. Irons started rough and then got better during the hole simulation. Then ten minutes on the green just working on lag putting and using only ball.
  4. also, Callaway has 50% trade in bonus right now if you go Rouge ST
  5. I am seeing this pop up again. As well, when i was at my bank, their wifi was blocking the forum due to suspicious activity. Might want to look into it.
  6. so is basically 2 Apex UW for the price of one with a trade in of a super hybrid
  7. Your birthday you get a 24% off coupon. Beginning of year have a blowout sale. Around majors usually a sale and of course Black Friday.
  8. Same course as last week, three shots better for a 47. Putter was great today, everything else meh. cons: weather was wicked. Drizzly wet then the winds picked up on the last 4 holes. Driver was not great today really only had two good drives but one of them ended in a side hill that I had to punch out. I guess pitching could have been a little better. Hole 5 sucked. Solid drive but clip a tree and only went 150, then side lie punch out I hit to down on it and it went right into the hill. 2nd punch out ok. Then pull 8i out from 140 (was up hill and wet) and pulled it left (story with my irons today). Then poor pitch back onto the green, poor chip and two putt 8, ugh pros: decision making was better today. Didn’t force any thing and kept ball in play (played the same ball). Putting was 180 from last week. 16 putts (including a 3 on the last due to aiming slightly off). Nearly drained a 25 ft putt from fringe on 1, a 35 ft on 2 that lead to a tap on par, drained a 25 ft par on 4 down hill with right to left break, 5 nearly drained a 27ft for triple, 6 nearly drained a 18 ft for par, 8 after bad distance on a chip and having to chip again drained a 24ft for bogey, 9 nearly drained a 55ft putt for birdie and off course missed the 8ft for par ugh. greens were also at an 11 stump. Last week a 9. Overall a fun morning, a good challenge and I feel myself getting better and enjoying the game more
  9. Same course as last week. 3 strokes better (47) despite hitting less fairways and inconsistent iron play. Will give a more detail in breaking 90 thread
  10. Phil is out of the PGA Championship. Will he ever play in a PGA event again?
  11. Well a glimmer of light showed up last night, in context with a friend of ours, she made the proposition that, 18 holes with prior notice is ok once in a while
  12. Just to get a more consistent swing and tighten up my shot dispersion. Overall, my goal is to break 90 and really enjoy the game more by scoring lower and being competitive. At some point I want to do some amateur tournaments and be competitive. Along this journey, I also want to share my knowledge and give insights to others to think about (mental aspects, enjoying other things about the game, etc...)
  13. With my post above, got two thumbs up from my coach that I am doing the drill properly! Very excited to work this feel.
  14. Great insight into the fitting process and the new 659s. Jason really knows his stuff
  15. how is this off the deck?
  16. So the drill my coach is having me work on for shallowing is a pump drill where I get the arms moving before rotation. Holy s*** does my swing feel fast now. In fact, when I was doing it with driver, it made my Ventus black feel like a noddle after the swing (it wobbled a ton!). Again overdoing it to get the feel, but man is it nice. Also doing some take away work with irons. I realized I almost need to purposely go way inside on my takeaway to get it to look neutral on video. It’s like my old takeaway was so outside I need to move ocean and mountain to get it right. Today was a good day for all this practice. The reason I had the old takeaway was to not get the reverse movements at the top, causing OOT. In actuality it’s my lack of hand movement at the top causing it. Golf is such a funny game and so interesting from a physiological standpoint. at the top. A little across the line coming down and the shaft shallows. Notice it is bisecting my lower bicep instead of my shoulder. My left arm also comes off my chest
  17. So for my irons, he stated my outside take away was causing me to be too laid off at the top (I don’t know how much I like that since it’s been the same since I started where I was across the line). Because of being too shallow at the top with my long swing due to my good turn, I cannot shallow and therefore come in steep. So the thought it’s to me more neutral or slightly inside vs outside outside takeaway showing where shaft should be vs where it is steep coming down For my driver, he plainly stated that not starting my hands down early enough in transition causes them to fly out in the down swing since my rotation is so fast. Driver takeaway better position at top due to more neutral driver takeaway shallowing of club Rotation down causes hand to fly out Thanks Kenny!
