  1. Thanks guys, all good answers. Newby does make sense that there has been no publicity of a change in rule here, so if there has it would be a surprise, though as Halebopp says, the reading could be construed just that way, and Double Gee I guess you are getting at whether an advantage could be gained - the string is about 6” so could not be seen as aiding in any way. I guess these responses confirm my concern that this new rule is unclear. Anyone else have any clarity on it?
  2. Does anyone have experience in interpretation of tee conformity rules? I have always tethered my tee, it is a great way not to lose them, and in doing so I always ensure I don't place the tether in a way that could indicate the line of play. This practice has always been legal in the past according to a guidance that was on the R&A website. The 2019 Rules include Equipment rules which, for tees, state: 1. Tees (Rule 6.2) A tee is a device designed to raise the ball off the ground. A tee must not: • be longer than 4 inches (101.6 mm); • be designed or manufactured in such a way that it co

  4. Adam Scott does it - not as long as Hideki but if you watch his swing he pauses. They say Scott has a nice swing... Apples and oranges. Scott does it the same every time and in rhythm. Matsuyama not so much. It’s why he has all of those demonstrative finishes on good shots he’s become notorious for. He’s not reacting negatively to the shot, but how awful the change of direction felt when he had a coffee break in transition. Matsuyama has a great swing. His rhythm sucks. Scott’s rhythm is great. Calling those two “pauses” the same thing is like saying 45* and 30 below zero are

  6. No, I’m a tall guy (6’2”) so I have always had longer clubs, I think +1”, but the fitter matched to my current clubs for the woods. He made my irons a little longer which is taking some getting used to (I have only had them a week), but I’m already hitting them crisply. I get 10-20m more distance, and they really do drop and stop. I hit 5 iron to a 179m pin on a par 3 (no wind) on the weekend, and it just stopped 3’ from the pin and right next to its pitch mark. Not all shots are obviously that good, but I couldn’t ever do that with my old clubs.
  7. Thanks. These are good thoughts too. My pro reckons he can change the weights on the G400 and says that can change the feel, so I will give that a try if I’m not getting anywhere.
  8. No, loading feels about the same, it may be confidence then, I’m off to the range soon so I’ll just take the old driver down too and play them together to get the right feel. The fitter I have is one of the best and spent much time getting it right, so I’m pretty sure he will have matched my mechanics. Thanks so much for your good thoughts, Stuart. Beary
  9. oK, thanks Stuart, these are useful thoughts. So I was playing an old (about 10y old) Callaway Big Bertha with stock shaft and otherwise little change - I was also fitted when I bought it - same length, lie angle has changed +0.5deg, not sure about weight, so perhaps it is just confidence and getting used to them rather than needing to change my swing. The fitter did try quite a number of adjustments but Ping do not let you have all the details of the final fit, which is a bit annoying. But assuming it is stiffer, is there any particular swing change needed just for me to try?
  10. Guys, I’d appreciate your thoughts on managing my new Ping G400s. I was fitted by a Ping Specialist and my club pro, and they recommended stiff Alta cb shafts for driver and fairway woods (5,7), I was playing regulars prior. I love the new irons, but hit a lot of drives and fairway woods low left. My swing speed is 100-105 and I do naturally draw a little. So my question, how does a stiff shaft react as I hit through? Presumably I am turning it over too much? And so what changes are going to help me launch better - I have tried laying it open a little but not much good. Any thoughts? Than
  11. [quote name='MonteScheinblum' timestamp='1437666530' post='12006150'] Your not OTT. Your arms work too flat and in to start the swing and that pretty much causes everything else. Lack of hip depth, major cup in left wrist, EE, head out to the ball, etc. Learn to work the arms up and in to match your shoulder turn to start with. [/quote] Thanks Monte, I think I see what you mean, any exercises or checks to help me do this?
  12. [quote name='seajohn' timestamp='1437640298' post='12004654'] Videos can't be accessed because they are marked private. [/quote] Hmm, I'm sorry, I can't see how to make them public - I have checked the Youtube upload and that says public, anything else I need to change? OK I think I've done it, can you try them now?
  13. Guys, I'm new here and have been working on my swing for a while, and I guess the things I see with it are that I still come over the top a little and have a bit of early extension, and that I don't have a good X-factor by Monte's standards, ie I don't keep my spine tilt very well, but I'd love some comments on how I can improve. Is there anything else I should concentrate on apart from the above? I'm off 9, I hit my driver about 240 yards with a swing speed around 100, my misses are really a mix, pushes right and pulls left, not great consistency there. I've attached a couple of videos, a
  14. Thanks guys for some really great discussion. I found http://www.golfwrx.com/132361/how-eye-dominance-effects-your-golf-technique/ on WRX, and this explains a lot, fits in with the comments above. I agree especially that this becomes an issue when people have mixed dominance, like me. I tried the tests in the article, and what's weird is that I have a mix.- so if I fix on the ball and close one eye, there is no clear result to which eye I use, ie both are dominant. So, what I think is that for me I have to force one eye to be dominant, and then I can make the appropriate positions for
