  1. Jack Nicklaus shared a remarkable insight for distance control... he'd putt his ball 1/3 of the way to the hole and let it roll the rest of the way there.
  2. Oddly enough I also use a modified paint/saw grip and have a WINN AVS midsize pistol grip installed on one of my putters , except it's set 90* left of normal... the flat side (normally the top side) faces the hole and is a good fit for my left hand and the tapered side (normally the bottom) takes up the space between thumb and index finger... just turn your putter 90* left, take your grip and evaluate.
  3. I went from Titleist DCIs (1997) ~ 124g shafts to TM's Burner Plus ~60g shafts for more height and distance, which they delivered but with their oversized heads I started sweeping the ball and overswinging the light shafts and accuracy suffered a bit. Nonetheless, my game was improving (15 handicap down to 10 over 15 years) and I wanted more control and moved to used Adams CB2 which I think came out in 2010 and re-shafted them with 95g shafts. That made a big difference and I went from a 10 h/c to a 6 over three years. I can tell you if you like the Burner Plus irons, it's likely
  4. This is a great opportunity to study and try to reproduce his technique, grip, stance etc and would even write to the pro asking for suggestions/tips... could be a wonderful project.
  5. I think being able to control incremental distances is critical to lag putting and a simple way to begin to develop that skill is also a good way to decide which of your putters is best suited to the task. On a somewhat level surface set tees at 18, 24, 30 and 36 feet and putt a ball to each spot with one putter, then the other. Your level of comfort with each putter over these distances is also important. If results are inconclusive, add layers of difficulty until a favorite emerges. l
  6. Congrats on a massive improvement! Improving on a 7.4 index takes some work and there's gotta be a better use of your golf time than fighting the Srixons. Best equipment suggestion I could make to solve the T200 'clickiness' and your golf biddies' conflicting advice is some quality earplugs.
  7. Once a year is nothing, I hear 'Better than Most' every week... from my wife.
  8. I'd like to place occasional wagers on golf. New to this and wondered if there was much difference between sportsbooks, either in the overall experience, reputation or costs. New Jersey has a lot of choices: 888sport , BetAmerica, Borgata, FanDuel, DraftKings, FOX Bet, theScore, William Hill, and Golden Nugget and others. Any experiences would be appreciated.
  9. You might check out David Edel's YouTube videos (Edel Golf) on aim bias where he uses a fitting to show how things like putter shape, line placement, shaft/hosel location, grip, length, etc. influence a customer's aim.
  10. Re previous post, I can't figure out how to post this gif but go to reddit under the topic Putting tips for right hand, left eye dominant person and scroll down... it's captioned hey, it works doesn't it?? Alternately, on YouTube search for World's Best One Armed Golfers as well as other 'one-armed swings' videos. I think this would best minimize disc compression. Either way, if your mom ends up buying another set of irons, with her reduced swing speed she should consider increasing the gaps to 5 degrees or more between clubs and very high
