Just joined my first forum from AZ

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 

I've perused the MGS website and forums for years now, but never thought to join the forum. I've only been golfing for about 7 years, but I've managed to lower my handicap from a 30 (or so) down to a 7.9 in that time frame. Having played Baseball my entire life I always struggled with clearing my hips too early and pulling across the ball as if I was trying to pull a ball down the 3rd base line.

 

My first lesson at GolfTec was a huge eye-opener for me, it really helped me see what I was doing compared to what I "thought" I was doing. Since then I've used the slow-motion feature on my cell phone and a tripod on the range to help me see what I am doing and comparing that to the result of the shot I just hit. I'm a strong believer that lessons help more than equipment. 

 

I also firmly believe in getting custom fit for golf clubs. My current set of clubs was custom fitted for me by Dan Weitzel at Weitzel Golf in Denver, Colorado. He did a great job and I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to get custom fitted. He can usually beat out the big box stores on pricing.  

 

I look forward to future participation in this forum and helping others learn to enjoy this wonderful game of golf.

In the low 100s here too.  I love the Faldo course at Wildfire!!  Had several meetings years ago at the JW and played both the Faldo and Palmer course many times... when I should have been in meetings!!

I hope you played well. I had a tournament at The 500 Club (Men's Association). Frustrating round, 5 birdies, but still shot an 80. There was a LOT of potential for a better round but some short game errors cost me.

Quick question for those that posted.... Where do you get all the logos you've placed in your signature line. It looks really sharp.

      Next steps to my road to improvement
      Current
       Adding the Mizuno MMC FliHi 4 iron to the bag once it comes it to replace my hybrid. The hybrid has too significant of a draw bias, not terrible, but I also draw the ball naturally already, and will probably go in and out of the bag, but I'm looking for better shot shaping with the FliHi and have that 210 to 225 distance into the green and off of the tee. Working on my putting. I'm rolling the ball nicely now with a slightly open stance with my current putter. I have another putter that I can get the ball rolling online, but the pace is off. Future step is to actually get fit for a putter. Working on my natural tempo and swing speed for the driver to have more consistent drives. See below for more info. Next
      Driver shaft optimization. Not looking for a new head yet. I like my 2017 M1 460. Interested in the journey of testing some shafts. Right now my shaft is determining what kind of shot I can do. Slower speed and tempo than my natural speed and tempo. This has lead to a great deal of inconsistency of trying to find the "magic speed and tempo" and I know that isn't the way to go. Swing speed training. I'll have multiple shafts at this point so I can game whatever is best fitting me as I go along. And I can always swing a little slower or club down to hit a fairway. Future
      Get fitted for a putter > get fitted for a driver/shaft and woods from a high level, reputable company willing to discuss numbers and takes the time and right approach. Open to custom shafts and not just from the OEM cart like at a Golf Galaxy. I have only been fitted to a driver once, but didn't purchase as I did not like the experience, small selection of shafts, and I wasn't swinging my natural speed and tempo like I should have.
