  1. If you think you might be setting up with the face open. Get a tee and blutac the head of the tee to the centre of your driver. That should give you an idea of where your face is pointing at address.
  2. It's one of the only things other than snowboard models that us Aussies get before the US. I remember a weird conversation helping a friend choose their first snowboard last year. "The 2019 is last year's model... I know it's 2019 now. The 2020 is this year's model."
  3. You played in the Victorian weather!!!!!! I was counting my blessings that because of lockdown I didn't have to come up with an excuse for bailing on a weekend round. I'm not surprised you had trouble.
  4. It is what it is. Where I am COVID was contained very well initially but in my state (Victoria) there has been a resurgence that is threatening to get out of control. So to avoid it getting out of control like we've seen in so many parts of the world, severe restrictions on movement and activities have been made. My thoughts on the matter are that golf will still be around, people's lives not necessarily so.
  5. Played last round and got up and down at a little over 50%. Turns out posting on an online forum instantly improves your short game.
  6. Likewise. Not a problem at all with my F9. My balls last several rounds.
  7. I like this drill from Brett Rumford. I've got it in mind for once restrictions ease.
  8. I like that idea. I'll have a think about where I can do so.
  9. Based on my last round it was 0%. Hit 13 GIR with 13 pars and when I didn't hit the green it was bogey or worse. I don't have the exact stats for other rounds on me right now, but they weren't great either. Obviously it depends on the types of greenside shots you leave yourself, but I would like to get it to at least 40% on average, then some days you play well and it's higher.
  10. Hi everyone. Not sure if people will be able to answer this, but thought it could be worth a shot. At the moment I'm struggling with getting shots around the green close. I get them to about 8-10 feet rather than inside 4ft; then losing a shot most of the time on a hole. I'm striking them well, I'm just struggling to get a feel for how they will react on the greens, and adjusting for different lies (uphill lie, downhill lie etc). My initial thoughts are to find a quiet green with a bunch of balls and just keep hitting different shots to gain better feel. Trouble is, because of COVID restrictions in my area, you're not allowed to do that; you're only allowed to go to a course for a booked round of golf. I can do drills at home to land a ball on a spot, but that's only part of my current battle. Anyone got any alternate ideas for achieving this? There might not be a feasible solution, but who knows unless you ask around. Maybe I'm stuck until restrictions change.
  11. Plenty of caveats in the study, so I wouldn't go all in on creatine boosting driving distance: The StrongDrive dosed group had doses of creatine monohydrate, coffea arabica fruit extract, calcium fructoborate, and vitamin D. It's not possible to study the influence creatine monohydrate has in this study. Driving distances went up, however, clubhead speed and ball speed did not change (to a significant amount; dosed clubhead speed dropped). There appears to be something wrong with their experiment design or how the distance tracking was done; unless supplementation can increase launch angle or decrease spin.
  12. Crossed off two more today: On the 3rd, put a knockdown 6 iron just off the back of the green. Holed the chip with a PW. On the 4th, long drive that went slightly left, hit a draw 7 iron to get within a wedge distance, hit the wedge to 5 feet, and holed the putt. One that has been quite interesting is how well I have played the 12th hole. I've had 9 rounds since I started the challenge: 6 birdies and 3 pars on 12.
  13. Totally. It's a great and inexpensive way of getting your ball flight parameters into a better "window". Just takes some time, a few sample balls (maybe do a swap with your friends), and a launch monitor. I did it and found that the Bridgestone Tour BX gave me more optimal numbers than other balls.
