  1. I think I am in the minority here but I can practice successfully with or without music/podcasts. I occasionally will listen to podcasts or music while I practice but most of the time I don't.
  2. I see all of this is about the players but what about the coaches who also are "opting out"... Brian Kelly left Notre Dame, Lincoln Riley left OU. If the players team is competing in the CFP I think they probably would play but look at what happened to Matt Corral. Luckily he didn't break anything or he could have slid far down the draft board.
  3. I got my handicap down to a 5.3 & I am going for scratch in 2022.
  4. At the end of the day dlow206 has a goal and he is continuing to practice so he can achieve his goal. Most people would have given up by now and he didn't. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I am rooting for him.
  5. A good feel for you is almost like your tailbone is moving toward the target. That really helped me with what I was supposed to be feeling when I was learning to get my weight to my lead side consistently.
  6. Nice man, it sounds like both the lesson & playing lesson went really well! Getting to my lead side was one of the hardest things I had to change with my own swing but once I could do it consistently it made such a positive impact.
  7. Part of who I am as a person is an overthinker. I love this game so much so it would be almost impossible for me to not overthink it and overcomplicate it. Sometimes it makes the game more frustrating than it has to be.
  8. Getting feedback of "nice" seems a little bit lackluster to me. I would stick with an in person coach who is not going to change things as frequently as they have been changed in this thread. I have seen multiple instructors, multiple swing methods, and multiple things worked on within days of each other. Epiphanies will happen and most of the time they are going to be useless or counterproductive. I know I am in the minority but I went from a 23 handicap to a 5.3 this season after only playing golf since May 2020. You need to stick to a plan and instructor and work with him tirelessly on one thing until it is perfect. That might mean working on your inside takeaway for 3 months until you can do it without thinking about it. If you are training and practicing correctly this should happen relatively quickly within 2-3 weeks and shouldn't take more than 4 weeks. An inside takeaway should not still be a conscious thought after having worked on it for this long. This is one of my favorite threads and you are one of my favorite posters on this website and I am rooting for you I just think some changes need to be made in terms of practice habits and jumping from one thing to the next.
  9. What app/website is this on that you are able to see percentiles and such?
  10. Oh, OP is trying to pull a fast one on us?!
  11. I agree but if OP does not have time for in-person lessons then maybe virtual is the best option!
  12. If you do not have time for in person lessons then something like skillest.com might be a great option for you. As long as you have time to get to the range and record yourself.
  13. Just buy a new one. I doubt there is really anything that can be done to almost "bring it back to life".
  14. I never even thought about doing this... I have to try it next time I play now, lol. Great idea!
