  1. https://golf.com/gear/putters/less-toe-hang-putter-fit-finder/ Toe hang may actually make the issue of leaving the face open worse https://blog.odysseygolf.com/hoselguide/ For golfers who tend to miss putts to the right (toe hang helps close the face at impact if you have a tendency to leave it open).
  2. this will eventually happen. just as we can choose the players to follow or featured groups during the masters, we're going to be able to watch a broadcast and listed to any announcers we want.... and the list won't be controlled by the network. if you want to listen to the no laying up guys, bob menery, or some random joe you think does a great job you can tune in to their channel. i have no doubt we'll get there one day and the actual network broadcasters will quickly find out their boring cliche filled broadcast isn't in demand. always amazes me of the pay these guys get.... is
  3. first batter of game .... strikeout second batter of the game...strikeout third batter of the game....strikeout lol
  4. absolutely agree that pitchers are throwing harder this is contributing to more strikeouts. most sports adjust, from moving tees back, to moving the 3pt line back, etc. the real problem i see is a combination of batters wasting time before pitches and pitchers taking way too long between pitches. the stats have shown the adjustments manfred has made to quicken the pace will quicken games on average by about 36 seconds. Can't hardly blame the attendance lulls and declining interest in the game. The cubs opener this year lasted 4 hours and wasn't even the l
  5. as another said, ditch the current putter and get a face balanced or slight toe hang. if you're aiming right, move to a putter with a more square back rather than round, with multiple sight lines instead of one single long line. left eye dominant suggests less offset as well.
  6. 2008, set an all-time record in strikeouts. That record has been broken every year since and again on pace even this year to set a new all time high. the time between pitches, the constant rotation of bullpen pitchers where starters barely make it to the 5th inning, where relievers warm up and then enter only to further warm up, batters wandering around the plate between pitches adjusting their gear, multiple mound visits from coaches, defenses using the shift, etc i just find it frustrating because it seems mlb sees the problem and then does something like putting a guy on second
  7. i really wish i could get back to loving baseball but man are the games slow and boring. i'm not criticizing those that love watching... i actually wish i liked it more. just wondering if its background noise or if you actually sit attentively and watch a 3 and half hour game? this may be ridiculous point coming from someone who loves watching golf.... but baseball seems to be strikeouts and hr's and not much more.
  8. same here - Left eye dominant - right handed went to golf digest top 100 fitter and was measured first for length. then i was seeing i had tendency to aim putter left of target I ended up being fit for a evnroll center shaft. was told the lack of offset helped move my aim more towards the hole.
  9. not sure if you listened to the no laying up podcast recently but this is an exact topic that was covered and it sounds like as technology progresses this added detail in SG is coming. at the very minimum you can separate sidehill, uphill, and downhill putts. this would also provide stats on which players play approach shots to below the hole more often or more effectively, etc. once you separate the putts into these categories, the make percentage changes and you begin to get an even better picture of putting performance. its the pod with justin ray who is effectively a stats guy
  10. All of the P2 grips are good. Really like the aware tour. New tour versions are lighter than the old
  11. you pay income tax on your earnings, then sales tax on your purchases, then capital gains on your investment earnings... covid relief going to bring a hefty tax bill
  12. the fewer games you watch the more likely you are to win the bracket pool.... this is how it works.
  13. has monte done a video on posture or commented on gankas opinions.... i've seen prominent instructors talk about how the waist line or hip line points downward rather than having the butt tucked and flat forward facing buckle. gankas really pushes the tush line being just barely behind the heels and a rounded back so that you can remain tall in backswing and then turn through the shot. .... especially for tall golfers. haven't seen montes thoughts. i've seen the amt guys videos and i know monte is friends... but would like to see their direct thoughts compared to gank
  14. olympics have become an afterthought. dj will give every correct pc response handled by his team.. but it boils down to fact no one cares about medals when it comes to golf. a real USA patriot wouldn't show up to compete in communist china and this doesn't even touch the topic of Uyghurs If I were PGA player I'd rather win Harbor Town than gold at olympics
  15. anyone know how these greens stand up to weather. Do many install these in places that get snow and ice in winter?
  16. buy orbi or google wifi mesh system and follow the directions to install. much of it is automated. much better than trying to use wifi extenders.
  17. when it comes to rotation - setting up with a posture Gankas suggests with hips over heels and upper back rounded has allowed me to turn through the shot so much better than than a 'perfect' posture prescribed in magazines and experts with the butt out flat back shoulders back
  18. Head not included - Selling the shaft only - Tensei Orange CK Stiff shaft w/ a G410 adapter - Grip is also above average as nearly new. Its GolfPride Z-cord Plays 45.25" Factory installed to original OEM specs Total shipped is $80
  19. for safety purposes that might be stretching it as meat should stay above 140 or not much lower for longer than an hour or two. you can get a couple extra hours if you first add boiling water to the cooler and let it heat up. then dump water and add double wrapped pork and cover with towels in the cooler.
  20. i've also moved to youtube. kind of embarrassing how much good content you can find with a really low production budget comparative to GolfChannel... proving it doesn't take millions to produce quality content if they wanted...or were capable. I think its similar to the network coverage in that the producers are still stuck in decades and past, out of new ideas, and haven't got a clue how to cover golf outside of what they've done for decades.
