  1. No issue, and thanks for everything.
  2. I put an Edel round grip on my Tuttle and love it. I had one of those huge chunky grips (that looks like the corner from a styrofoam cooler) and hated it. The original grip I got with it was way beyond recovery. Love the Edel grip. https://edelgolf.com/products/edel-round-grip
  3. I had something similar, but it wasn’t panic. I have a weird heart rhythm that gets out of hand at the range when I snap and start cranking my way through a large bucket. Caffeine affects it, too. Two doctors have confirmed this through a...uh...EsomethingG test (was it?). I suspect the BP meds I was on, at the time, contributed to the problem. Anyway, might be worth asking your doctor about, if it continues.
  4. If you were playing well, even if (or, especially if?) your technique is questionable, a lot of your ability is dependent on the day to day management of what you’re doing, based on a pretty good feel of what’s going on in your game. Any time off, particularly due to injury, and you’re going to lose all that feel and management. Coming back from injury, it’s far more likely your CNS will be dedicated to keeping you safe than hitting the long ball.

It was so strong, part of my left palm was just beginning to face the target at address. Oddly, my right hand was only slightly strong. It worked, though. I hit the ball dead straight. After about a nine year layoff, I returned to golf with the resolve to approach the game in a more orthodox fashion (only slightly strong grip, full bag of sticks, use lob wedge only when needed rather than the way my nephew uses
  6. I used to play with what a teaching pro friend of mine called "a three knuckle grip with the wrong three knuckles."

After about a nine year layoff, I returned to golf with the resolve to approach the game in a more orthodox fashion (only slightly strong grip, full bag of sticks, use lob wedge only when needed rather than the way my nephew uses ketchup, etc.). It hasn't gone well. So, recently, I was experimentin
  7. > @ScratchyDawg said: > You're rolling your wrists instead of hinging properly. More hinge = more distance. Gonna be hard to hinge properly with such a strong grip though. Adding to the point Scratchy is making, if one's grip is strong enough (that is, if the back of the left hand is facing the ball rather than facing the target), it is my view that the hinge of the left wrist in a neutral grip is replaced by a cupping of the left wrist in the very strong grip. In other words, in a neutral grip, the upwards cocking of the club is, in part, achieved by a hinging of the left wrist (ra
  8. Finally got a Callaway Tuttle. I used to hate putting, until I got a Wilson GM990 (their version of an 8802 for putt-putt). That helped me become a good putter, but I never loved it. I love my Tuttle and will hole out in my grave with it.
  9. Oddly. I used to play with 4 or 5 clubs and and got down to a fearless goat track 7 with them. After a 9 year layoff, I got back into the game with a determination to go orthodox. What a giant mistake. Me and orthodox don’t really match, mostly because I’m too much of a pain in the drain to make it work. So, back to only using clubs I can hit and making the most of it. I’ve done this before, but it seems like I’ve got a short game back, enough to make ‘whack, whack, chip, putt’ work, this time. We’ll see.
  10. “Chicken sandwiches...AGAIN?!?” - ANGC Members Quite a win. Never thought he’d do it.
  11. No reason the Red Sox won’t repeat. (Is there not a smugness emoji?)
  12. > @JaNelson38 said: > Golf Sidekick is a good channel too that I've stumbled upon just recently. He's not an "instructor", but a low-figure player. He has mostly on-course videos going shot by shot playing a round, but he provides good insights on the mental aspect of the game and course management - something that you dont find often in golf instruction. And his videos are usually fun to watch too. Yeah, fun channel. Might be too realistic for some.
  13. Featheries, on sheep munched fairways? Aye, laddies, that’s the golf!
  14. I told a friend of mine, who was struggling with the same issue, to practice his swing at the edge of a cliff. I was, of course, joking, but practicing at the edge of a platform that isn't any higher than an inch, is enough to make you work to keep from falling forward. In the process, you end up feeling differently as you're no longer going forward. It's likely a new feel, so if you practice it enough, that new feel will become more familiar to you and, therefore, easier to identify as something you're aiming for.
