  1. I dealt with this from Oct of last year till April of this year. My wife had warned me in Sept not to play our club championship due to nagging elbow pain. But the moron that I am persisted on and totally wrecked my elbow and chucked up one of my highest scores ever in a tourney. Shut down my golf at the end of Oct. by Christmas I could barely pick up a coffee cup. 6 months later what did I learn about tennis elbow. 1. First thing to help heal is TIME. Seriously just say no to the tourney. 2. Shallow out your swing if you are coming steep. - This was my cause. "Thanks Monte, Slicefi

  4. What works for me. (right handed golfer/ lefties reverse this) Drop your Trail foot back(right Foot) so the toe line of your shoe, lines up with your lead heel(left foot). Make full swings turning your body completely. It will feel as if you are completely behind the ball. Do not roll wrists or hook city. Just setup and make a full turn. Do not try to murder the ball just swing at a nice tempo and maintain balance. I swear half of golf is just resisting the urge to murder the damn ball. You can also try the flamingo drill which is a variation of this right foot back dril
  5. Rather than using the putter to setup try using the line on your golf ball. When you go to setup to your putt use a line on your ball or aiming arrows printed on it to aim. Make sure you do this from behind the ball and not the side. I had exactly the same issue missing everything to left (southpaw). I frequently changed putters chasing the dragon. Now I can putt with any head shape. It's important that you trust the line you setup when you get ready to putt. The first few rounds subconsciously my brain would be like there is noway this is right the line is wrong. But you just have
  6. I've had no issues with the bounce on my 60 MDF. I'm coming from a Vokey 58 SM5 K / 54 SM5 S grind. Conditions at my home course are mixed depending on day, with fluffy sand to hardpan, firm to soft around the greens. The R grind seems to work nice for a variety of shots. For stop and drop lobs the bounce works good as long as you commit to the shot. Any hesitation and I think any grind/wedge is gonna blade or dig regardless. I've had no problems with opening the wedge so long as I swing through it. Oddly enough I actually gained a few yards with the 56/60 combo vs the 54/58 Vokey I pla
  7. Getting up and down from 150 yards in. Not losing golf balls. Course Mgmt.
  8. 714 Titleist MB's - Can't see changing them anytime soon. Control, workability + Perfect swing weight.
  9. His vids have helped me. The 2:00 drill and the Turn and Tilt drills have been working for me. From watching myself on video my tendency is to turn my shoulder back too level and then come back trying to drop the shoulder which leads too all sorts of inconsistency.. 2 way miss, getting jammed up, getting on toes etc. losing power etc. If you try to Ring the Bell with a flat shoulder turn and your balance and shoulder plane are off you'll come over the top every time. For me when I turn my shoulders steeper and just let my arms fall while holding my chest back like he describes in his video
  10. - Feet together Drill and learning to hit the ball with my pivot. Loss of balance = wrong. - Using the feet together Drill along with hitting balls off High Tee'd up balls with every club in my bag. My favorite is super high teed up wedges. It taught me to use my pivot and delay my release also shallowed my swing.
  11. Whatever gets the job done. Hitting low spin bullets is no help if the ball doesn't stop on the green.
  12. [media=] [/media] This Video helps explain what Mike is teaching as well. The 2 finger swing was a lightbulb for me.
  13. Srixon Softfeel, Topflight Gamers, Costco Callaway Balls and Bridgestone E6 Soft. The lower compression balls feel great for slower speeds and don't put a huge dent in the wallet.
