  1. Yes, that is a good video also with Rose. I guess it's whatever rings a bell with the reader or listener to get them to do the correct move. I like the thought of keeping my back to the target as long as possible and not throwing my right shoulder at the ball. Both good thoughts.
  2. I just watched a youtube video from "Overhand Golf", and it really hit home for me as a life long over the top shoulder thrower. He talked about not consciously turning the right shoulder (righthand golfer) through the shot on the downswing. It will automatically do it when you swing anyway, but by not forcing it, you will get the right shoulder down and under and not over the top. After trying it, it really does make a lot of sense. A lot like doing the opposite of what you think you should be doing, like Monte's No Turn Cast swing. By not actively turning the right shoulder through, you act
  3. My thoughts as someone who has went through having the chip yips for 3 years. I think there is some difference in opinion on what a chip is vs what a pitch is, and each golfer needs to determine his thoughts on it. This is my personal thoughts: Chip Shot -little or no wrist hinge -very little body movement or rotation, very much like a putting stroke. -You are not trying to actively get backspin on the ball with hands or body movement. The bounce on club is not a factor. -at least 50/50 roll/air percentage, but more like 75/25 -U
  4. I say if it's helping you play better golf and you are enjoying the game more..........more power to you!
  5. Still working with it. We are in the deep freeze here, so not hitting balls. One thing I did notice, and it really made me think, you have to be solid with your foot/leg work while doing the swings. It's easy to get up and make a bunch of practice swings focusing on your turn, keeping tension on band, etc. and get your legs not working right. I was doing that myself. I would take a few slow swings and notice I was not finishing on my left leg right, it would be bent, etc. I have now started each session putting a club across my shoulders and just turning back and through, focusing on proper l
  6. Salomon Speed cross trail running shoes. Been playing in these for the last few years. Comfortable, look good, water proof, good traction, nice lace system. Got new colors out this year. I think the GTX are made of gore-tex, so those are the water proof ones. Not cheap, but still probably less than high quality golf shoes. Plus company stands by product. My sole starting coming off on the left side and I sent them a pic and they gave me a voucher for a new pair. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
  7. Very good thread. I purchased my first one used (Red/35"/69d) and my second one from LAB after fitting (Black/36"/73d). They had a brand new one that was made to the wrong specs for another customer. I jumped on it for the price. I have been using both on my practice mat. I knew the first one was going to be flat for me, but was concerned I might not find one at all for a good price, so I pulled the trigger. The Red has the bigger grip, the black has the smaller OG grip. Usually a smaller grip means better feel on long putts for me, but you are more prone to twist the smaller grip. Red has sta
  8. Well this was a long read for sure, but lots of good info. I purchased mine last week and have started doing the proto's in my basement without a ball. Ordered some indoor balls, so that I might be able to hit pitch shots indoors. We are in the deep freeze right now in Missouri, so only can practice inside. The funny thing is I have been trying to get my backswing flatter for the last few years and struggling. I like the PM because it is a more natural swing for me. I naturally want to get steep on backswing and reroute flatter on the downswing. That is kind of how I learned to hit solid shots
  9. Here is nice easy read, but very enlightening little book. FINALLY: THE GOLF SWING'S SIMPLE SECRET. The author is J F Tamayo. I was skeptical at first, but he really explains the basics very well. I liked his short game book also.

  11. My Wife and I just got back from our 30th Anniversary trip to St. George. What an awesome area. We spent a week at Entrada and played five rounds of golf. We spent a day at Zion National Park also. I can't speak highly enough of the area and people. Everyone was so nice. We played The Ledges with WRX member RSinSG, it was a very nice course and it was great to meet Ron. We played Entrada the next day, highly recommend, but I think you have to be staying there to play the course. We also spent some time at the range at Entrada through the week. We splurged and stayed in a Casita, and it was an

  13. Silo Ridge County Club (Open to Public) Bolivar, Missouri ( 30 min. north of Springfield on MO 13) $40-$50 https://www.siloridgecc.com If this course was anywhere else it would be expensive to play. Always in great condition and some of the fastest and best greens I have ever putted on. Nice range and practice area.
  14. Mules National Golf Course Warrensburg, Missouri (30 min. east form KC) $28-$35 http://www.mulesnational.com This course is a steal for the price. Great 18 hole layout always in great shape with nice practice area. Neat Island green par 3 to finish on. Also very nice and affordable restaurant in the club house. I think a membership here is very reasonable also. Highly recommend. It's the University of Central Missouri's home course, and I think they have had some donations from Alums to make it so nice.
  15. Just wondering how many of you guys are using jumbo or oversize grips with your one lengths, and is that different than what you were using with your previous set. If so, why did you change?
