  1. Every time I go to the range I have a short dynamic stretch and warm up routine, not even 5 minutes. It ends with swinging a club grip first 2 sets of 6 and then regular 2 sets of 6. I use a driver for this. The first ball I hit is a full pre shot routine driver to a not too generous fairway I pick out. Then I go to whatever I intended to work on. I believe this helps me on the first tee when I don't have a chance to hit balls which I usually don't.
  2. I have a 6' 4" buddy that was a great swimmer, fast 200 fly times, water polo coach etc. We went to a lit very short 9 hole par 3 course ,mats only, with our wives one night for giggles. He had never held a club. I don't think he hit a single really bad shot and was GIR on 5 out of 9. He liked hitting off the mat, not the little rubber tee. All I did was tell him what club to hit. It was crazy. Next time out we went to a driving range and he couldn't even find the ball let alone strike it well. That was the end of his interest in golf.
  3. Very glad to hear it turned out well. So I'm sure there was copious amounts of ice applied immediately after the round, you just forgot to add that to your round up. Remember to use that band anytime you are doing something to irritate it... like carrying children etc. Also, how did you play?
  4. Play it left handed. Grandpa might have a shotgun.
  5. I hope you realize that now you need to check in after your round and let us know how it went score and elbow wise. That way we can play Sawgrass vicariously through you. That's the only way I'll ever get to play it.
  6. Go to a sporting goods store (or possibly golf store) and get one of these. They have a ridge that you put across the tendons that attach to the elbow and create a different shock point so the inflamed area does not get irritated. I put it on as tight as I can stand and if too tight I loosen a little until I can stand it. Do research on tennis vs golf elbow (in case you got it wrong) because they are different (inside elbow vs outside) and dictate how you apply the band. Take NSAIDs before the round. Ice it immediately after. This just to get you through the round. Good luck!
  7. This ^^^ keeping your trail arm straighter, 90 degrees or less, will shorten the backswing. Push with trail arm to "keep lead arm straight".
  8. These guys have a system for making swing changes. Credit GLK for showing me this. Game Like Training https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPvGlDhU2r1KbJUP2H__MVQ
  9. I'm sure there are options for extending the shaft you have. Just cost you the extension and a grip. Less than $125. https://www.golfworks.com/premium-graphite-shaft-extensions/p/gw4000pnk495/?gclid=CjwKCAjwtdeFBhBAEiwAKOIy51_eL9CJuqxT0FGxOASotdeGXDbM1u_euprmqNEkksChhSerPCdYPxoClQAQAvD_BwE
  10. This ^^^ after a couple seconds of wanting to snap a club I'm usually the first to ridicule my poor play. Sometimes they beat me to it. The other guys might as well join in because they are for sure gonna get it from me when they fail miserably. My goal is always have fun regardless of score, it's just easier with a better score.
  11. Sincerest condolences to you and yours, Monte.
  12. They are heavier but softer than a wiffle ball. Not a great feel but you can pretty much tell when you strike them solid and the flight is not too bad. They are worth hitting full swings. If in doubt about strike foot spray will tell the tale.
  13. Same for Tucson. I love summers and cheap golf at nice courses.
  14. My Rawhide mat came in. Project complete and really enjoying it. The Rawhide mat was C grade for $90 shipping included and it looks like more of a good B or poor A. Hardly used. Now waiting on this sacrificial net to add life to my last line of defense. Using old towels until then. They don't last long. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MKP7GQM/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
