  1. I think the problem here is you are more focused on result than process… I’ve improved my putting a ton this season and rarely hit the ball at a hole in practice. I like to do things like work on speed control and tempo, and make sure I’m doing those thing correctly, and I’ve seen them translate to better on course putting results. Grinding 4 foot putts isn’t necessarily going to make you better and it might hurt your confidence on the course…
  2. Allegedly back to the regular tees this week… but have been traveling and will have been off for a week. Going to try to lay off caffeine and get good rest heading in and see if it changes anything.
  3. Not until Wednesday… I’m hoping we are back at the regular tees by then… Forward tees exposes my weaknesses a lot more. Wedge game, especially from under 50 yards and putting have been weak. ive been pumping driver and my irons have been on point, but I’m not hitting much of either from the forward tees.
  4. 100% Honestly, I don’t have many eagles on par 5s… and I can reach most of them in 2. I realize that’s three good shots, but I have 3 reachable 5s in my usual round… I think I have one eagle in 50 rounds.
  5. Poorly. I’m starting to fully grasp I can’t bounce back from not sleeping like I used to. My fine motor control was awful. But I was exhausted…
  6. Yeah, my course is on the front tees right now… I’m decently long and have hybrid into 2 holes, 3 wood into 1 hole, and 2 holes that are drivable… the remaining par 4s I’m a short wedge in… after 4 rounds from the front tees, I have 0 eagles and have hit the greens 3 times. I’m a 5 handicap… (I’ve had one eagle on the 5s and missed a couple eagle putts). Drivable par 4s give you a chance at eagle, but necessarily a great one. It still requires 2 very good shots.
  7. Yeah, really glad I swapped to the project x… I’ll send them back to have them reshafted in December (hopefully)… can’t believe how delayed the c tapers have been…
  8. Nothing wrong with an open slot in your bag, but at that altitude a 4w that you can hit will go for miles... You might be able to outdrive your driver with a properly set up 4w. Just find something forgiving and that you are comfortable with and let it rip. High launch, high spin is a great counterpoint to your 2 iron.
  9. I'm really interested in doing some speed training this off season, and I'm sold on the stack system... the thing that stinks for both of them is you have to pay the $100-200 for a radar to track your swing speed! I'm thinking I will pick up the PRGR and the Stack System for $600 and not buy a new driver this season.
  10. Honestly, it’s driver on every par 4 I can’t drive with less club, except for one hole… I hit 3 wood on 2 of the par fives.
  11. They worst part about hitting the ball better is it means it's not going where you expect it to... always takes a little adjustment. I love the concept of this partial swing and think it's a great tool to have in the bag, especially if it's working on the course. As you've said, there is a limited amount of time to practice, so you need to make sure it's spent on things that transition to the course... My original point of a full swing was hopefully clear, and it sounds like you have an idea of what a good full swing is for you (shoulder under the chin)... just have to build consistency with it! I'm playing my 4th round from our forward tees on Wednesday... I'm tired of my course being 5100 yards, but our tee boxes are ripped to shreds... it's been an interesting experience and has taught me some lessons that hopefully stay with me into next season!
  12. One of the things that has really helped me is to get back into weightlifting... I take the MSM supplements as well, but building strength has helped my joint health and I fee like I have less aches after rounds... It's not an easy solution, but it's been effective for me. I tend to do heavy weights and low reps. I really like deadlifts!
  13. If you are in any rush for the clubs, check availability of the shafts before you make a purchase! I have the Project X 6.5s in my Zx5s and like the heads a whole lot... in December, I'm going to ship them back to Srixon and get the C-Taper 130Xs I was fit for, because I want to lower my launch and liked the feel a little bit more... Srixon offered to let me try the Project X shafts because I was 8 weeks in on my wait for the clubs.
  14. Yeah, I need to fully commit to speed training this winter… just sold a ton of stuff on eBay, so the golf coffers are looking decent for once. I like the fit for golf stuff, and will probably buy the stack system.
  15. Yeah, I really like resistance bands for motions similar to the golf swing… the added resistance as they stretch really helps develop some extra oomph, I think. moving fast with intention is always good!
