  1. I use the Swing Speed Radar, as I think most do. Not sure what else is available, but the SSR seems adequate and is convenient.

Brother had the px6 suit and had to change and buy something else that evening. Galvin green gore Tex for me Hmmm. Played my first round in PX6 pants yesterday. Was pleased with the fit and feel, and waterproofness although I guess it didn’t rain that long or that hard. My main complaint is the lining, some sort of mesh, is very comfortable once on, but is incredibly easy to snag and almost impossible to get over golf sh
  4. Where there’s a will there’s a way. There must be Canadian knifemakers, someone must supply them. I would guess that the website deals in some materials that cannot be shipped internationally. I wouldn’t think that sheep horn is one of them, but it might take some research to learn your options.
  5. Ah. Now I know what a slip is. The horn I have is pieces suitable for turning shank extensions, an inch or less long and around a half inch diameter. Something like knife handle scales only thinner sounds like what you’re after. This website has sheep horn scales: https://www.worldwidewildlifeproducts.com/store/pc/Horn-Knife-Scales-c30.htm?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIkqHbnqiX5QIViIjICh02vQLREAMYASAAEgLCw_D_BwE
  6. Every manufacturer has something — micro-grooves, laser etching, surface milling, etc. — promised to provide a similar advantage. The Law of Parsimony says it’s somewhere between mostly and entirely marketing.
  7. > @Air67676767 said: > Ok thank you very much ill start doing that. Also sub question. Isn't this kind of what ping does with their hydro pearl finish wouldn't that be illegal in this case? The finish of a club (chrome, copper, paint) is a part of the club, not a material or substance applied by the golfer.
  8. What are the dimensions of the slips? As a pipemaker I have quite a bit of ox horn in the form of tips which are, I think, the lighter translucent color you mention. It’s a matter of dimensions; a golf club shaft is thicker than a pipe stem so I may not be able to help, but there is a pipemaking supply that sells horn discs. https://vermontfreehand.com/horn-bone/
  9. > @kolomoia said: > > @glk said: > > Make a deeper turn with the right hip. Looks a bit restricted. Deeper turn will also help keep the right hip back in transition since now it comes out to early and blocks the arms. > > Nice point, but is that help me from back pain? Yes, actually, or at least possibly. The modern “X-factor” swing, or restricting the hip turn in order to maximize the tension between lower and upper body, has been blamed for more than one bad back.
  10. 6’4”, play +1”. Until I get to 36 1/2”, then everything the same length.
  11. Despise it. And people who play it know there are people like me who despise it yet they play it anyway. Why should someone else’s irritation intrude on their enjoyment?

They also shouldn’t have to hurry up to clear for you when they have nowhere to go. Being the group on the middle of a bottleneck sucks. They should play a normal pace and not be still waiting when you guys pull up to the tee.

They also shouldn’t have to hurry up to clear for you when they have nowhere to go. Being the group on the middle of a bottleneck sucks. They should play a normal pace and not be still waiting when you guys pull up to the tee. The true answer was for you two to make a 4 some. Real question is why didn’t the starter force you to in the first place ?
  14. I guess I also can think of a number of reasons why a twosome might not want to join another twosome. But IF the twosome in front is paced by foursomes, the twosome in back should not expect to play through if they are not willing to join. In the scenario as I understand it, let’s say I’m in the front twosome. Because there are several foursomes in front, my playing partner and I have been larking around a bit. A twosome catches up. Seeing them waiting, we finish the hole expeditiously and proceed to the point where we are waiting on a tee as the twosome behind finishes on the green. This prov
  15. > @willbones said: > To any of you guys that are using the PM - has anyone transferred anything to their actual swing yet? Any noticeable improvement in ball striking? Yes, but . . . Improvement is noticeable, but changes on the course are not necessarily linear. Because my grooved constellation of faults would result in my early extending and raising the handle to keep from burying the club in the ground, my divots were always toe first (v-shaped), even if I hit the ball solidly and on line. After working with the PM and improving my pivot and shallowing more in transition, more
