  1. I'm trying to add more speed. I know I am not standing up right enough/too far from ball. Anything else? I know I don't have a big backswing but I have started that to keep myself on plane. I also probably don't have the best of lag. I'm trying to get a little more speed. Some info: 6'3 no injuries. Swing speed average is 109 and ball speed about 158 and averaging about 288 total distance. I can get it past 300 about 1 every couple of holes. Thanks! 20210523_120154.mp4
  2. My 2ball lasted at least 6 years for me and I got it used. Good to know this would last longer.
  3. I asked around and the insert couldn't be replaced, sadly. But I can find an exact replacement fairly cheap.
  4. I've used an odyssey 2ball putter for the last 6 years and love it but the insert is starting to tatter. My buddy recently gave me a ping heppler fetch putter. Thinking about putting it in the bag. What are some differences in your milled putter vs an insert?
  5. https://golf.com/news/this-massive-miscue-pro-hits-eagle-putt-water-masters/ How did he get to reputt and not have to take a drop out of the water hazard? Thanks for clearing this up.
  6. Do the potential winners get fitted prior to receiving their jacket at the ceremony or do they just have certain sizes on standby each year?
  7. Thanks. My sliding makes it feel like I am turning through more, but I could be wrong. Unsure what is causing it as I have never done this before. Def prob an issue of transferring weight to the front. When I have seen my swing, it doesn't look like I lean back or leave alot of my weight on my back foot, but it prob is the case to a certain extent.
  8. Does anyone see an issue w my lead foot sliding out to the left after contact (right handed)? This seems to be caused by my follow through and opening up my hips during/after contact? Does anyone see anything wrong with this? I'm hitting the ball well however one symptom of this seems to be that I'm hitting the ball higher. I know alot of folks will say that I must be putting more of my weight on the back foot but if that's the case, I'm not chunking the ball and hitting it well, again, with the exception of the ball flight being a little higher. Unsure how this started as I have always hit the ball "normal" and am healthy. I have been trying to create a draw when my swing has always hit a fade, which seems to be working. Thanks.
  9. Wow, That is shitty if so. That means their app is useless and we have dead equipment. Any way to confirm?
  10. Does anyone know if Swingbyte site and/or customer service is working? I'm having issues w a device and have emailed several times w no response. They don't seem to have a number. Thanks!
  11. I guess I keep going back to how one leverages strength to increase speed. By what has been mentioned shouldn't baseball pitchers be lifting (gaining more muscle) to increase strength? I always thought if you were longer, lankier, and more flexible then you were able to have a wider swing arc allowing for the opportunity for increased speed.
  12. So if Cameron bulked up, he could get the ball to 350 average? I'm no intellect but how exactly does bulk (mass) translate to speed? I'm learning here lol.
  13. Excuse my ignorance but why are folks putting alot of stock in the added bulk of Bryson? How does that size translate to ball speed? I know the height and length of a player matters but confused on why size matters. I take a Cameron Champ for example. He is long and lanky but still pounds the ball. I'm a fairly muscular guy by golf standards and find that being this muscular can sometimes take away from my flexibility. Thanks for educating a poor sap like me.
  14. With golf essentially being one, if not the only, sport you can still play during this time frame, do you think this is bringing or has brought new golfers to the game? I personally have been asked by several friends who have never golfed to take them out.
  15. Thanks all. I've been to several instructors and they all give me the generic flaws instead of trying to work around my swing. I learned nothing new. Being a 12hcp, I was never that bad that we couldn't just alter a thing or two instead of trying to reinvent the wheel. I live 5 miles from where Dan teaches but I can't afford paying the rate even though I know he could cure me. LOL.
  16. Has anyone taken lessons at golf tec? I'm thinking about going there as I take instruction best when I have visual feedback. I used to be a 12 hcp but have not played as much over the winter and my game has gone back to when I first started playing. I have changed my swing so much trying to fix it myself w the youtube videos and have no clue anymore what I am doing wrong. I would guess than I'm probably playing a hcp that is about at 20 right now. I have no idea what has happened other than me tweaking it so much it is unrecognizable anymore. It seems I change it up every time I go to the range.
  17. TPC on golf now is much cheaper. I think 250 but if you call, they generally give you a good price. They have the Dye Valley course there too which I think is better than Stadium. Also, they only have one track in the keys and it is in Key West. Not the greatest course either.
  18. Yes. St John's. Thx. And one of the courses is still open at PV. I just played it.
  19. Late March and Tampa bay and yes car. Incoming from Jax.
  20. I would recommend not playing the HOF courses unless you are playing at a FL resident or military rate. Tourist trap and overpriced for what it is. I would recommend St. Augustine Golf and Country and Ponte Vedra Inn and Club and South Hampton. All within 15 miles of each other.
