  1. Waiting for the clinic before signing up is what I did, and considering that you're seeing him in February I would sign up now. You get a online lesson upon sign up (or at least used to) and that will get you started on the right track. Clinics are a different animal, you'll be doing short game stuff, full swing, playing with hack motion and pressure mats and ending up on the golf course. Obviously you'll be there with 7 other golfers so while you will certainly get one on one instruction, its not like he'll be standing over your shoulder for 3 days straight. Not to mention, for
  2. Welcome to Putnam county NY. If you're coming here in a few weeks should be a beautiful time up here. The Garrison is my favorite course in Putnam. There's a rumour that they are turning it into a 9 hole course in the next few years so get to it now if you can. Some spectacular views of w est point from many holes. My favorite course in that part of the world is the links at unionvale. Probably about 30-40 minutes to the northeast from you. Well worth the drive. You'll need to book a tee time well in advance if you want to play it.

    BOGO

    Does anyone know how often BOGO offers happen in a year? Trying to figure out how many boxes to buy. First time gaming the Z Star XV. Fantastic ball. Will try the q star in the next few days.
  4. Interesting, you know if he advocates keeping his hands that close with the driver as well?
  5. Like many 20 odd handicap golfers I overestimate my ability off the deck with a 3 wood. I'd be well advised to sage that for far simpler shots.
  6. In the summer, 3w was mandatory. Played the driver and flew it 10 yards in. I like my driver more than my 3w so that's what I use if possible. Makes a "chip driver" idea tempting.
  7. Great post thank you so much. 30 yards puts me in a place where I have a chance. Last time on this hole I was 170 to clear ball below my feet and was forced to try to hit a easy 3 wood to get across. Did not go well. Don't have the length to use my 5i without good footing to clear. I'm the odd golfer that's better from 50 yards than a full wedge. I'm more than happy getting in either position. There's no real trouble past the hazard. I need to post more here. Going easy 8, easy 8 flip wedge sounds really good right now �� got any club between 3wood and 5iron? problem seems to lie i

  9. Nice that they move the tees back after a good rain. Exactly opposite of what they should do. I usually play up a box on a soggy course. As for the hole, those downhill - uphill par 5s usually are designed to make you try to overpower the hole. Layup just short of the hazard and play a comfortable club up the hill to give yourself a good third shot to setup a sure par. The worst thing you can do on the downhill second shot is try to play a 3w or other club that is hard to elevate. Remember that a 3-4* downhill lie can turn a 5i into a 4i and so on. Use the club that will get the ball up and
  10. It's a thought. But it's very easy to dump that second downhill shot into the crap.

  12. Yep all downhill leading to hazard. I don't have distance issues on a flat lie. if I could get myself 180 away and flat I like my chances. Sadly that's not possible and I have to flirt with the hazard to get on flat-ish ground. Never a thought about distance once I get over. Can't ever be more than a 7 iron.
  13. The 2 hybrids are tough, you NEVER will have a flat lie and it's about 170+ to clear the crap. That's a big ask for me. Last time I played the hole I was this exact distance and the ball was 6" below my feet on a side hill lie. I actually gave a half thought of chipping 30 odd yards to a slightly flatter down hill lie.
  14. Yeah. Perfect world, I hit that 15 yard window and play a hybrid to about 100
  15. About 225 to the flat area. Slight down hill. About a decent 3 wood for me.
