  1. Tiger Woods. A name that carries weight. In this house he is the undisputed greatest to ever do it. Be more like Tiger; easier said than done. There are countless examples of his superior mental game, but I want to expand on just one at the moment. When I say Augusta 2019, I can tell you two things that stick out to you - 1. Tiger winning his 15th major and 2. Francesco Molinari blowing up his final round with multiple water balls. Molinari was looking strong through 3.5 solid rounds at the Master’s on that Sunday of play. It looked like he was going to hold onto it through the back nine. That is until hole 12, when the wheels feel off. He found the water in front of the green and he carded a double bogey while Tiger ended up with a routine par - leading to a shared top spot between the two. I can’t say with certainty what caused the water ball at the 12th for Molinari but I can venture a guess that after that hole, the pressure had gotten to him. Instead of playing the field, he was now in a race with himself, and his mind was in the lead. Doubt crept into his mind and after another ball in the water on the 15th you knew Molinari was all but out of the tournament. He went from contender to pretender in the span of a few holes. It didn’t matter how well he played for 3 days prior , it didn’t matter about how good his swings and shots looked for the week, he will always be remembered that year for the mental collapse he had on the back 9. One the other side of the coin, we have Tiger, who by all stretches of the imagination should not have been in this position after everything he had been through over the past 10 years. There was a point when he believed he’d never play again. But this guy has the strongest mental game in golf. He could’ve have easily talked himself into retirement more than once and no one would’ve blamed him. He’s had one of the most successful careers you could have. But he believed he could still win. And belief is all he needed. He played that Sunday without doubts and carried himself to a win. And that’s not to say he played perfectly, he also had bad shots. The only difference is that he did not carry them with him to the next shot. He would step up, not question his swing or why that last shot ended up where it did; he gave it another rip, knowing he was capable of the shot he wanted or needed to pull off. He is a masterclass in patience, resilience, and will. He was always known for not showing a ton of emotion while playing, only to have a huge release at the end. It’s not because he didn’t feel emotions; it’s because he knew that allowing elation or frustration or any other emotion would cause overthinking and tension to creep into his swing. Even after years of examples of his mental game, the best to ever do it, a majority of golfers are so caught up in the swing and improving their own. So why aren’t we putting more focus into to improving our mental game? Take the best golfer you know and put them in a fried egg in a pot bunker and ask them how they’re feeling. All the technique and YouTube lessons in the world can’t help them outperform their mind.
  2. Hi all, I'm new to this forum (and still pretty new to golf to be fair!) so if this is out of topic or against rules then please let me know. Anyway, I've been working on my swing recently, trying to refine and improve as I still have some bad habits which make my game inconsistent. I've tried a bunch of swing analysis apps but I was disappointed because they are either just a glorified video recording app, or they get you to send your videos off to a golf pro for analysis (for a pretty sizeable fee). Does anyone else have this problem? I find the hardware type swing analyzers (ie. Arcos, Zepp, et al.) don't really help with this that much, and other products like Flightscope are really too expensive. I'm a techie so have been hacking together my own app which can record my swing and automatically perform swing analysis on the spot (using image analysis/computer vision). I'm building it so it looks at posture throughout the swing, club positioning, grip, swing curvature, tempo, and club face on impact. The plan is to clip my phone onto my golf bag and position it so I can record from behind or side-on. I'm testing this on myself and a few golf buddies right now - but wondering if anyone else would be interested in using an app like this? Would love to hear if anyone else has this issue or if there is actually an app out there that already does something similar? It would be great to get some additional testers too. If interested let me know - I've created a cheap landing page to easily get some sign ups for testing: https://golfmatics.carrd.co/ Thanks!
  3. So, it may be a little rant-like but I want to improve as quickly as possible without going in circles so I thought I'll ask for an opinion here. Went for my first lesson - as I've started struggling with 2-5 irons for some reason, so instead of the usual 2h spent on pitching and chipping - we spent some time on going back to basics with the swing. My impact position was still pretty solid, the body works 'okish' but i wasnt happy with the contact on shots. So after a few shots the diagnosis was - I'm laying off the shaft too much. I am consciously doing it, as I've got a fade and want to avoid having a slice. So I've been told that the hands want to go where the grip is pointing. Which most of the time I'd agree with but I like to have a certain 'feel' that helps me with timing a lot and not coming into the ball steep like hell. We worked for a while on it, to set the club shaft basically parallel to the target line. The contact is a bit better, but im back to hitting slices. Anyway, took it to the course, it wasnt the worst or best. I played fairly ok. And then went for a lesson just out of curiosity with a different guy at a different place as with my current one - seems my long game has stopped progressing/been stagnant for a while. And he basically turned 180 degrees, said my shaft is too steep, that it should be pointing at about 2o'clock at the top of the swing etc... Literally the exact opposite of what I was working on. Also - after that lesson I went to the range, and could not hit the ball for about 40-45 minutes. I felt like I've wasted £70. But then 2 opposite opinions... Which one is right? How the hell am I supposed to find a coach to trust? I have the aspiration to get to scratch within a short period of time. So yeah... Kind of bummed.

  4. Hi guys, I'm looking for some advise. I currently have a set of TaylorMade Speedblades, stiff shaft and my swing speed is between 85 - 95 MPH. I am looking to move over to the 2016 M2 Irons, should i move over to Regular shafts?
  5. Is anyone using or working on the Leadbetter A Swing? I started trying it to try and work on eliminating my blocks and blocked fades. I have been working on it and have developed a hook. Any advice from people working on this swing would be appreciated.
  6. This past Sunday I stumbled across (again) the Tour Tempo website. Basically they are promoting a method to train yourself to have a more tempo'd swing. Of course once you have that you'll strike the ball better with increased distance, accuracy, etc. Ok, I can use that. I thought the idea of using the app and listening to the tones might help my game in some measure. Sure couldn't hurt. The app is quite expensive as far as apps go. $25. I plan to get out tomorrow and give Tour Tempo a try. Have any of you guys tried it? Any success? Thoughts?
  7. Is this a photo of Ben actually swinging? Or is he demonstrating/practicing a drill? The position he is in, in this photo, appears different from many of the other shots of him at this stage in his swing. Also, he appears to have a club on the ground behind his right foot with 2 balls lined up along the shaft. Did he just drop it there or is he using it as a reference point of some kind?
  8. Thanks for accepting us to the Mygolfspy community. We are the inventors of the TI, a golf training club that alows golfers to copy the Tempo and Rhythm of professional golfers. My sons and I have worked on this over 7 years and have finally finished making a first manufacturing run. Please ask me anything you would like to know, from conceiving, inventing, patenting,starting a biz, and any of the other 870 things we needed to do. Regards... Craig
  9. ESPN just reported that Tiger Woods announced that he will no longer be working with coach Sean Foley. He also stated their is no timetable for hiring a new coach. After his latest playing attempts, it was obvious that Tiger needs to adjust his swing style......and that would probably require his finding a new coach with a different swing philosophy. I really think that Butch Harmon is the best coach suited to help Tiger change to a smoother swing so that he does not continue to injure hi back. What you y'all think?
  10. Stay cool while you play during those hot summer days.
  11. So I'm reading this article on ScreenRant - "15 Batman Villains That Deserve their Movie Due" and bam outta nowhere #3 just screams YES! Ladies and gentlemen, The Mulligan of death.. Mr. Fun Real Name: Unknown First Appearance: Batman: Family #1 Powers/Abilities: Skilled assassin, killer golf swing. Who Is He: At first glance Mr. Fun looks like a wholesome, all-American, 1950s Ward Cleaver-type guy, which is true, except for the fact that he is a trained assassin who bashes people's heads in with a golf club. He's pretty much the Mr. Books of the Batman world. Why We Want Him: Having only appeared in a total of ten comic book issues, you're probably still thinking “who?” - but trust me, the unassuming exterior of Mr. Fun is what makes him cool. Granted, with a name like “Mr. Fun” he sounds like more of a threat to unsupervised minors on the Internet than to the Dark Knight, but the man that held off both Batgirl and Nightwing with only a putter and a creepy smile deserves a little screen time. http://screenrant.com/batman-movie-villains-list-discussion-scott-176844/
