  1. There are usually about 16 of us who play through the winter here on Long Island. If our course is open we play no matter what the temp. Since our course gets kind of beat up in the winter we play Lift, Clean, and Place through the green. We have a range of HDCP's from 4 to 26. So who has the biggest advantage playing ball in hand. Our 4 thinks the high handicaps get the biggest advantage but I'm (13) of the opinion that the better the golfer the bigger the advantage if you can touch the ball. I think the biggest advantage comes around the greens, chipping and pitching. From a bad lie the low
  2. When I first read Monte's post I wondered how I would react if I saw the kid being kicked by his father. Now I come to realize that it's how Monte handled the jackwagon in scenario 2 that was most important. It made me think , "The First Rule In A Crisis Situation"..

  3. The other instructor and range staff being there makes a difference in how I read the original post. It would seem to me that an instructor shouldn't tolerate this type of behavior on his lesson tee. If he got pissed at you for intervening than shame on him. I didn't mean to offend but when I read your original post I had a gut reaction to it.
  4. I know we don't really know how we would react in a given situation, but I would hope that if this happened near me I would do something. Call the police, intervene on the child's behalf something. As a parent to see a child kicked to the ground and forcibly held down, what if it wasn't his parent but his coach. Would we react differently if we saw this happen to a teenage girl. I'm a fan of Monte's and I'm not trying to stir things up but scenario #3 really bothered me. I don't know what I would've done I only hope I would have done something.
  5. Martin Chuck and Shawn Clement both have terrific YouTube videos regarding the grip.
  6. From my personal and professional experience distance contact lenses are the way to go, even if you find it difficult to read with the contacts. The distance you are from the ball at address really shouldn't require a different rx. You can try multi focal contacts but there is usually some amount of trade off with your distance vision. Some lens companies do make progressive lenses designed for sports but again there are compromises. I would discuss what your after with your optometrist or optician, if you go with contacts they may be able to come up with a plan( distance cl in dominant eye a
  7. TB07, I think your review of Brendon's channel is right to the point. As I said in an earlier post I did like it more in the beginning but I do still tune in from time to time.
  8. So tell us what happened, bro. We all promise not to tell Brendon you dished. :) I have nothing bad to say about anyone...except for maybe Peter Kostis' Swing Vision analyses. What about that pseudo-intellectual "cool tatted rapper" Foley ?!? :russian_roulette: I've reformed since this. [media=] [/media] Actually, I'm probably worse, but trying. The first time I saw this I almost peed my pants. The best line " I have humped so many goats, I am not allowed within 20 miles of a driving range or farm."
  9. I wonder what all his Teachers must think. Jumping from one to the other as a student and then selling videos and now running clinics and doing swing evals. I know they're all too professional to comment publicly but if you got them all together wouldn't it be great to be a fly on the wall
  10. I starting following Brendon's channel because of his lessons with Monte. I had watched Monte's YouTube videos and found BBG because of Monte. It gave me insight into Monte's teachings and was really interesting to watch someone's journey to be a better golfer. The first videos and live shows were terrific (though Brendon could be distracting at times as some others have noted) and I still watch them to pick up things that I may have missed with Monte. Then BBG went from Monte to Dana to Bobby Lopez to Tony Luczak to Mike Malaska to GG to Tatahata to... which I can understand in a quest to pla
  11. The best way I can describe it is at the top of your back swing when you start down you feel like your sitting down a little and your backside is turning back away from the target, I thought it sounded crazy but I tried it and it keep my head back and my arms had plenty of room to swing(left arm off the chest) Hope that helps Thanks. I'm sure that will definitely feel awkward lol I think I fall under the category of "bump" the hips and probably have over done it through the years. It will probably take several sessions of slow downswing movements before the awkwardness goes away. Mike

  13. The BodiTrak was an eye opener. I was 70% on my right foot at address. The adjustment I had to make to get close to 50/50 is something I try to feel at set up now. When Monte watched us taking full swings on the Boditrak some of us didn't load into the right heel at all and most of us didn't do it enough. It's a pressure shift not a weight shift as Monte says. Right Heel -Left Toe on the back swing Left Heel -Right Toe on the down swing. I think I got that right. There's loads of information to take from the clinic.
  14. So as one who has watched Monte's video's more times than I care to admit, I found Day 1 of the clinic very familiar almost as if I had met Monte before. The morning was spent by Monte videoing each of us. We all watched and tried to figure out what swing fault was present. Under the pressure of swinging in front of the group your faults just pop out. Monte gave a quick thought as to what he saw but would review the video to see if there was anything he missed and go over it with us on Day 2. The afternoon was short game- chipping, pitching, bunker play. Here's where you see things that are ha
