i needed to purchase new golf socks because present left side socks had holes approximately under my foot pivot.  Are there socks specifically for golfers that address this and are some better than others?  Thank you.

Hello Harry,

 

When you practice, is there a particular set of things you work on? How do you go about your practice? is there a particular sequence that is standard or do you change it up to prevent things from getting boring?

 

Do you do the towel drill under the arm? If so, what do you get out of it?

 

Cheers,

Jeremy

Harry,

Thank you for doing this.  Good luck this week   

For a mid-handicappers looking to improve:

- Should they play more lofted FW and hybrids instead of 3 and 4 irons?

- Should they practice with blades or player improvement irons for practice to bender contact, but play matches / games with player improvement / game improvement irons?

- What is the appropriate distance we should dial in our wedges to: 52 deg - 120 yards, 56 deg - 100 yards and 60 deg - 80 yards or is that too short?

- Should they play more forgiving larger sweet spot putters?

Thanks in advance for your candid comments.

Which side of the course are you trying to take out of play? What adjustments (setup/swing/equipment) did you make to specifically avoid that miss?

Tourney Pro/Am obligations - nice way to ramp up for the real competition (or) time that could otherwise be spent grinding on your game?

CBD during competition?

How many calories/fluid oz(s) consumed during a round?

I want to pull my Ventus Hybrid shafts from my current PXG hybrid, and use them in Ping G425 hybrids.  Will they be the same playing length, or is one adapter/head combo longer than the other?

How do you get your clubs fit? Do you go to a BBS or a standalone fitter. Or do you do it yourself? And are you happy with the results?

Are there any independent tests from a "IronByron" type machine for driver shafts (launch, peak heights at 110-115 clubhead speeds)??  Thanks TJ

A Driver Issue: I am left handed.  Use a Callaway XR with mid size grips because I used to hook it. My short game and putting is exceptional. My issue is I cant hit a driver. My visual when over the ball is that the face is straight and toward the target. In reality the club is closed and my drives get no lift on impact (but I hit it straight). When I force the club (when at rest behind the ball) to have a flush or open face I have straight pushes and the club feels like I have no control over it. I'm at a loss in what practice measures I need to do so I don't "Charles Barkley" it Which I tend to do. I cut my club 1.25 inches thinking it was the length. Please advise what to do to fix it?

Curious to know if you guys can run a simulation comparing how a cold driver club face reacts to a outside temperature golf ball, to a hot sun beat driver face with the same temp ball. 
Is it better to put the driver cover back on after each shot or even cooling the face down with ice and wiping it dry. 
It’s something I’ve always been curious to see what results would come about from it.

When should a rapidly improving player think about getting fit for the first time?

My handicap has fallen from a 43 at the end of last season to a 29 currently. I’ve recently broken 100 twice (90 and 95, respectively) and expect it to keep falling as I reduce errors and penalties. 


I started playing last June with a Strata starter set and I’m contemplating get fit for new irons. The Strata irons have been solid companions, but aren’t well constructed are very lightweight.

My local pro who I’m taking lessons from said that buying off the rack and having them retrofitted for loft/lie/gapping, but my concern is having a less than ideal shaft. 
 

Thanks!

What percent of men, women, with tour cards or on the junior tour, use forged blades versus cavity back cast metal irons?  Just a rough guess?

I bought new irons, cobra forged tech. The only changes were from graphite to steel shafts and from standard to midsize grips. I am now hitting everything in the toe area. In the past my misfits were in the toe side. Would any of these changes be causing this?

Sorry, I’m now hitting everything in the heal area.

Hello Sir and thanks for doing this, it's not like any of you guys at MGS need any more to do.  Was thinking the other day...  What if major ball manufacturers had a contest to produce a ball, no holds barred for the rules, to come up with the longest ball in history?  Obviously it would be illegal, but to do it just for shits and giggles, and see how far the envelope could be pushed.  What distance could be achieved?  Would it be like hitting a ball bearing?  12 layers?  Some really bizarre dimple pattern?  Your thoughts.  Thank you, and keep up the great work.

What is your practice regimen like?  
 

How many hours do you put into each part of your game per day/week, etc.?
