  1. I had a college teammate that was recruited by the new coach. Problem was the teammate had signed up for this recruiting service that would make a weekend hack look like the next coming of Tiger Woods and the new coach fell for it and recruited him anyway. All of the guys that were recruited in that class were part of the recruiting service and none of them could break 80 (some couldn't break 85). All of them lost their scholarship except for this guy. After Xmas break he came back and started shooting 72-75. Then a month later he was routinely breaking par and by the end of
  2. I think it's very possible. A friend of mine was kinda in your situation and really worked at his game for a year and achieved the goals you have. Of course, it depends on the person, but I believe you can do this. Here's what I recommend if you're serious: 1. Find a good quality instructor. You may want to take 1 lesson per month to start off with. After 3 months, then move it to once every 2-3 months. 2. Get a decent tripod and Joby iphone holder. Find an instructor that will show you how to film yourself. Check a few swings out 1x per week to mak
  3. Tennis ball to replace Force Pedal works so-so. Tough to get the push-off with tennis ball. The Down Under board is for more of a straight line CoP trace. Nothing wrong with that, but it may not work for your swing or whatever your swing instructor may be teaching you. With the force pedal it's not so much about getting the pressure/weight on your toes. It's basically a vertical leap concept with the lead foot, but you're jumping backwards. Watch videos of guys doing the standing vertical leap test. The pressure is more towards the pad below the toes with incre
  4. I'll third Bastain Milled. Had his lop off the plumber's neck in my EVNROLL ER1.2 and replace it with a flow neck. Perfect job, even difficult to notice that it is welded. The only thing I would advise is that you could lose some headweight to the putter. Of course, he can take care of that as well. RH
  5. We have two different club championships. The net championship and the gross championship. I could possibly win the net championship, but that usually goes to higher handicaps. The gross championship, there's no way I could win now. Too many DI collegiate players or going to be DI players. Then you have guys that were former touring pros that got their am status back. The kid who dominates our club can easily shoot 130-135 and win by a billion. A couple of years ago he took a 10 on a par-4 and still won by 4 shots. RH
  6. I've been told by many Tour pros that I've worked with that the course is indeed, excellent. Although what Tour pros look for in a course and what amateurs look for can be two vastly different things. RH
  7. He doesn't do Super Speed Training (nothing against it, he just doesn't use the sticks). As CardsChamps stated, it's a lot of spending time where every swing you make you try to swing as hard as you possibly can. I know Bryson has consulted and worked with Long Drive Competitors. At Bay Hill he had a Senior long driving champ on the range working with him. I wouldn't doubt if there's a lot of throwing a tennis ball in a submarine type motion as hard as he can. Then there's the gym workouts. RH
  8. I'd give Brendan Kennedy at Legacy Club a try. RH
  9. Little background...I tried the JumboMax Classic Wrap XL a few years ago. I tried it on my 3-iron, it's much heavier than the UltraLite. The swingweight didn't bother me much, but I was missing everything high and right. The grip was just too big for me and I didn't like the wrap grip. It felt like if I got any perspiration on my hands the club would slip off. So I ditched the idea. Recently I started looking at the Ultralite mainly because the grip composition was different and I was told by others it is easier to grip that the wrap style. I had also been watching YouTube vid
  10. It looks centered to me. Some more extension would help with the transition pieces, but there's a lack of hip turn in the backswing. I'd also reduce some of the foot flare at address. Between the foot flare and the lower body pivot in to p4, he can't transition into the ground and rotate in the downswing. He makes up for it by sliding and throwing. Good enough to make quality contact and generate serviceable speed, but consistency can be a real issue. RH
  11. From a swing perspective I don't think you have a bad swing, but your pivot is about what I would expect from a 5-10 handicap. Some golfers can strike it better with that type of pivot, but they usually have been playing since they were young, played a lot of competitive golf and have very good hand-to-eye coordination. Again, not a bad swing, but basically you're only going to get so much performance with that type of pivot. The other thing that can help you get out of that plateau is understanding the analytics of the game and applying them to your game. Usually the priorities
  12. I don't mind it, in itself. The issue is that the golfers that will show up to a golf course dressed in 'proper' golf attire are usually the ones that know how to play the game because they are passionate enough to show up with 'proper' attire. And thus they will likely know the critical etiquette to the game and know how to play quickly. Those that show up to a course without the 'proper' attire are usually people that play golf once a year, if that, and don't know the proper etiquette and disturb the course's pace of play. Which really drives home the point...golf c
  13. It's really not nearly as common as it was in the 80's and 90's. And today it's often something that amateurs can get if they are willing to shell out the extra money. And the purses are so big these days that more players don't care for an endorsement deal that restricts them to playing almost all of the OEM's clubs. RH
  14. Always worth a shot, but I would be surprised if Nona and Isleworth would provide a reciprocol. Keene's point is more likely. You could also look at Orange Tree and Legacy Club for reciprocation. Reunion is really good, but you have to stay there to play there. Public wise, Ritz Carlton is a good bet particularly for its conditions. Waldorf is usually in great condition and I enjoy the course quite a bit. Southern Dunes is a good bet as well. I'm not a fan of Shingle Creek. They ruined that course with their re-design. Champ
  15. I prefer Tour Tempo's system of 3:1. Whatever tempo you use (18:6, 21:7, 24:8, 27:9, 30:10) is up to your own personal swing characteristics. Unless you're a Re-Max long driver you're probably going to be at 18:6 with a super long backswing which is very difficult to do. RH
