Road trip! Last week we sent one of My Wife's Sisters back to Nebraska. Today we drove from Tampa to Macon to meet another Sisters grandson to drive her back to Alabama. So now we are sitting in Cracker Barrel waiting on breakfast (it's 1:30 pm) LOL. Then we head back to Tampa. The last Sister will go home to Montana next week. They spent 3 months with us this year.

Are you going to drive her back to Montana?  If so, drive a little further and we can play.

I didn't wear them golfing today as I didn't want to freak out when I hit my driver. I'll mainly use them around the house when watching tv and such.

If you do wear them golfing, just don't get paired up with Jack Hamm!

Not sure if I should post this here.After extensive lessons rebuilding my swing.What mindset should I have on the course?I did somewhat terrible for a few holes trying to mimic all I learned while playing.So I decided to take the training wheels off and just focus on posture and swing freely.And whenever i consciously try and manipulate body of hands in downswing it turns out very bad.Especially when on the course as I learned.My Results improved dramatically in ball flight-score-and my general attitude once I just swung freely.However, When I'm not playing.Im constantly working on the positions in slow motion not worrying about where the ball goes.Does this sound like a reasonable plan for this year?I learned a lot yesterday experiencing to say the least.I really want to nail this swing improvement.But at the same time i don't want to be on the course hindered in practice mode.It was a big relief just thinking target and swing towards it.I guess I'm hoping that all I worked on improved me.To the point where I can just swing freely when I play

It will take some time for your swing to become ingrained out on the course. As long as you feel you're making the proper swing, I wouldn't worry too much about the result for the first while. It can take as much as a season for a swing change to become second nature

hard to change when someone was all hands and arms for year(s).Like my pro told me.If anyone can just change 10% of what they are doing wrong from his lessons.It will be a success, and will result in lower scores.Im positive I changed at least 10%.Cant wait until I get the other 90%

Here is a question.Is this considered cheating?We have one of our top area players do this.He will hit rubber-whiffle balls when waiting during extremely slow play on the course.He even does this during events or local tourneys.Doesnt do it all the time, but would do this once or twice a round when extremely slow.He will also pick them up.He always aims away from play and they go maybe 10-15 yards at the most.

If the balls are considered a “training aid” then yeah he's breaking the rules. I wouldn't call it cheating, but it's a no-no in competition by my interpretation.

completely agree with Russ on this one... I don't think that should be allowed.  sure... he can chip his own ball that he's playing but the plastic balls would be a definite no-no to me...

I would agree also. Plastic balls would be considered a training aid. You can do this with a real ball as long as it doesn't delay play.

 

You also aren't allowed to put a weight on your club or swing your orange whip to keep loose if the course is backed up.

Thanks guys^^.I always tended to question when I saw him do this.Our rules tend to get lax at times for regulars.He even will put a tee in the ground.And practice clipping the tee with no ball as well
