  1. Mine is with Edwin Watts (which I think is the same as Roger Dunn). I had just been playing seriously for six months and it was my first fitting. My coach had sent me with a list of things to try. I began by hitting the drivers (rookie mistake) and was carrying it about 200. Keep in mind I was eleven years old and had not played very long. My "fitter" started telling me to swing faster and faster. He tried to change my grip from an interlock to an overlap and reconstructed my entire swing. I was never fit for clubs; he was just coaching me with different heads. At the end of the fitt
  2. Hello everyone, I have been working with a new instructor for almost three months and we have fixed nearly all of my prominent swing issues. The one that remains is my head likes to drop down and towards the golf ball in the backswing. When I try to not move it, I either top the ball, or move slightly closer and toe the living crap out of it. Has anyone else had this issue, or do you have any tips for keeping the head still without topping or toeing the ball? In this video, I do a decent job, but I toe the ball badly.

  4. Have any of you sold your clubs to 2nd swing? Can you comment on the how the process works? I recently got a new set of clubs and am looking to sell my old set.
  5. Yes, my swing speed has jumped about 15mph in one year.
  6. I played a round with my new golf instructor yesterday, and I could not drive the ball straight at all. I did not feel that I was swinging bad, and my instructor said I was swinging well. He concluded it was a club problem. I had a lesson this morning where he fit me for a new driver. Below are the specs of my old driver and my new one: OLD: Titleist TS3 10.5* Mitsubishi Tensei Blue 55g stiff flex 45" NEW: Callaway Maverick Sub Zero 10* Mitsubishi Tensei CK Orange 70g XX-stiff 44" All of the sudden, my misses are in the fairway, I'm hitting my driver 20 yards farther, and on a m

  8. I switched from Ping G700s to Titleist T100 a year ago. When I switched, my handicap was 8, and I was NOT a good ball striker. I was so tired of looking at a chunky club, I was willing to sacrifice forgiveness. At first, it was very frustrating hitting small mishits and seeing bad results, but the smaller club head gave me better feel of my mishit. For example, I could better feel if it was a toe shot, or fat shot. I credit this better feeling to my incredible improvement to a +1.5 handicap. Below are three questions I think you should answer before you make the jump, because it is a jump.
  9. Earlier this year just before Covid, I purchased an Amazon Basics golf net. It was ridiculously cheap, and if it was terrible, I was only out $70. It wasn't terrible though. I had a Rukket net for a long time before I got rid of it, and this net is practically the same thing for half the price. It handles all of my clubs, even driver. If you are looking for something affordable that isn't hard to store, I recommend it. It seems to have gone up in price to around $90 for some reason, but it's still cheaper than most. https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Portable-Driving-Practice-8-Foot
  10. I just recently took my 3 wood out of the bag for the first time ever. I had a gapping session that showed no significant difference between my 5 and 3 wood. I never struggled finding the middle, but I always hit it low. That was strange for many reasons including I hit my irons to the moon and back, and I don't have speed issues (106-108mph with driver). However, a twenty-handicap friend of mine hits his 3 wood the best out of all his clubs. In my opinion, it is different for everyone. When I was first learning, I always topped my 3 wood. I believe this is one of the reason's I nev

  12. I just finished my first professional gapping session yesterday on Trackman with a temperature of 85*F and an elevation of 550'. I went to the course today and hit the ball extremely well, but I was 10-15 yards short all day of the yardages determined yesterday. The temperature today was 60*F so I expected 6-8 yards difference but not 10-15. Anyone else had a similar experience?
  13. Carter, Nashville, TN 2.0 Vokey SM8 in Jet Black finish I practice many hours a week on the range, and that will quickly wear the finish and grooves down. I feel with a raw wedge, the grooves would wear down less quickly, and the rust will make up for what is lost. I also like it because it has no sun glare.
  14. Has anyone ever had the idea to have a forum-wide golf tournament? You could have everyone play within a one week time period. Their lowest score from the week can be posted along with their handicap and course rating/slope in one thread similar to when posting for a reviewing opportunity. The lowest gross score could win something. Thoughts?
