    I play it and it's so fun.  The point system we use is

    Bogey = 1 pt

    Par = 3 pts

    Birdie = 5 pts

    Eagle = 10 pts

     

    Keeps things somewhat tame.

     

    Also have a rule that if you let it ride a second time in a row, you now need to get par or better to accumulate more points.

    Looks like modified Stableford to me. We play this w larger groups. 

  2. Are these available in the US as of yet? Would love to test. And if people are willing to spend $400-500 for Ventus or other high end shafts like myself, I would be a buyer for an additional $250...I switched to ventus a couple months ago and got me an extra 10-15 yards with exact same head. 

  3. I had terrible service elbow issues for 2-3 years, tried virtually every band, stretching exercise and crazy internet suggestions but nothing worked. From my limited medical knowledge, my right elbow had a detached muscle which explained my pain level and also explained why bands or other treatments other than surgery would not wok here.

    Opted for surgery for right elbow. Did this where they literally tie the the detached muscle to the bone. It was microscopic surgery but rehab still took 3-4 months and a bit painful.

    second surgery was a couple years later on left elbow. Opted for something called the FAST procedure and it was much less invasive than right elbow. Basically used some instrument to clean out damaged tissue and put some of my own blood platelets in there to speed the healing.

    Recovery time w the FAST procedure was MUCH quicker and much less painful. Also sanctioned by the Mayo Clinic which is how I found out about it.

    if I were in your shoes, I would stop ALL hitting off Matts, start using graphite, massage the crap out of the injury to increase blood flow and if that still doesn’t help, so FAST and be done with it. It’s now 10 years later and both elbows 100%.

  4. Years back I was fixated on getting a set of Miuras. Fitter hands me an Epon 502 iron and I was blown away. For me it was night/day difference with Miuras having very little feel for me while the Epons were beyond soft.

    Longest I’ve ever stayed with a set of irons because they were just that accurate both in terms of dispersion and distance. Just recently bought a set of black 705’s and also love em.

    it’s a personal choice. You need to hit each one side by side.

Found that I’m better at just going through the protocols without a ball because anytime I tee a ball up with this contraption on, my club goes crashing into the ball. Also had one of our local pros try the PM and then try to hit balls and he couldn’t do it just justice as well.

    Weather getting too cold to hit balls with it?

    I don’t hit balls w the PM. Found that I’m better at just going through the protocols without a ball because anytime I tee a ball up with this contraption on, my club goes crashing into the ball. Also had one of our local pros try the PM and then try to hit balls and he couldn’t do it just justice as well.

    > So I just got the PM and am struggling hardcore with it. Is this supposed to make you feel like you have to rotate your chest super hard?

     

    I don’t get that feeling at all. I simply swing the club and rotation of rest of body happens pretty naturally.

    No one is going after some guy making homemade Plane Mates.

     

    Ever see all the knock offs of Gucci’s, Feragammo, Prada, Rolex, or golf clubs for that matter?? Police have a VERY hard time dealing with these knockoffs and the counterfeit business via Alibaba or even on the streets of NYC or SF is in the Billions of dollars.

     

    There is absolutely no way anyone is going after this guy even if he attempts to mass produce. Best they can do is have a lawyer draft a cease and desist letter and that will also be useless.

    > The one Planemate on eBay is currently at a $250 bid + shipping with 4 days to go. I encourage anyone who will not be using their PM to put it on eBay. There will be some good bids.

     

    Craziness!

     

    And the bidding is just beginning. You could sell your used PM today for easily $100 profit and simply wait a cpl weeks until new stock comes in. Treat yourself and the wife (or significant other!) to a nice steak dinner:)

     

     

  10. So I combined my PM drills especially around shallowing the club with GG moves and for the first time, the “relax” part of the Downswing with the PM felt natural to me.

     

    Basically, what GG puts out there in vid below is rotating using the left femur (aka your leg!) and hence opening up the left side with real rotation and makes for a whole different (positive) feel for me.

     

    You can check out the vid below but when I do the leg movements GG talks about in the last few mins of the video, it just naturally allows my club to shallow and I don’t have to think much about softening wrists or lowering hands or just about anything else...it just happens.

     

    Unsure if this is right, wrong or otherwise but may want to check it out:
