  1. Not an instructor but I'd take my DTL view and compare your hand path and how closed your shoulders are at various points coming down with a few Tour players.
  2. Too bad Monte wasn't around to help the Haverkamps ... https://www.instagram.com/p/CX1eCZporYq/
  3. Monte deserves to be on the "list" and has helped me on a few occasions but there are some who don't and IMO, some that are not included (Dan/Chase/Bradley Hughes/Bobby Lopez) that should be. I have no idea how to properly construct such a list but having other golf instructors vote you in seems a little biased and suspect. Should it be about schmoozing with peers, how many YT/IG followers you have, how many new golf swing terms you invent, or ... how many golfers you have actually helped reduce their handicaps ? I was quite surprised to see some of the billing rates of the top 50. Most of them are way beyond my senior budget and make teachers like Monte & Dan that more attractive as an option for lessons for most.
  4. Mostly politics, some past acheivements, some up and coming ... No issue with it except there is no proven method to rank golf instructors other than a vote-driven top 50/100 and those who are "ranked" and advertise their ranking as a way to attract students are well aware of it.
  5. Arrived 6 weeks after fitting on 10/1 LH T100 Project X 4-PW
  6. https://www.listennotes.com/podcasts/fromthebacktees/interview-with-michael-_875abQd4Xo/
  7. Love him or hate him, there are no programs as good as Academy Live and Golf Talk Live on GC today. Kessler committed career suicide when he called AP out on the Callaway non-conforming driver issue and IMO, GC has never been the same. In addition to Keith Hirschland's memoirs, have a listen to Tucker Booth's interviews with Michael Whelan about the early days at the GC and Kessler.
  8. A few options for you as I'm roughly the same age (65 in a few months) - personally not trying to fly it 285 over a hazard but don't play any courses that require that carry even from the tips. Try a lighter driver shaft - I am going to a 65g shaft (from 70) based on my numbers from last weekend Different ball might help Speed training - talk to Monte or find out what the senior long drivers are doing. Watched some of the PLDA yesterday and some of those guys are approaching 60 and still carrying it 350. https://imgur.com/BWoUIDU
  9. Sure did - awesome socks Rick - no slipping so far and thin enough. Found a rec on Wrx for these as well and bought a 3-pack. If you don't mind an ankle height sock, great for golf and regular exercise as well. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0817PB97W/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Bought and still yet to try - Swiftwick Performance One / Feetures Elite Ultra Light No Show Tab
  10. If you are in your 60s, still 160-165 and have been fitted for the right driver, you are still getting it out there 290-300 which would put you in the top 1% for your age group. You could certainly certainly check out some of the speed training programs available - couldn't tell you which one would be right for you. As for guys in their 60s still hitting mid 170s, you might find one or two in here : http://beauproductions.com/golfswingsws/USSLD/yearlyresults.html
  11. Pretty simple formula to lose weight - calories out > calories in. If you don't change your diet and cut calories, it might not matter how intense your workout program is ...
  12. Not all golf instructors need to have an advanced knowledge of physics or biomechanics to be successful. Youtube golf videos are a rabbit hole that in if you choose to descend, you may never come out.
