  1. Jody Vasquez in his book Afternoons with Mr Hogan tells the same type of story. I guess there was a gang businessmen that would play a pretty high stake game at the club. And every once in awhile Hogan would play. So one day there was a out of towner playing. He was in Hogans foursome. He didn't ask Hogan what he hit (their balls where within feet of each other) he just looked in the bag. I guess Hogan hated that so he dropped another ball (first was 150yd 7) grabbed a 6 and put it 2ft closer then drooped another grabbed the 8 and knocked it stiff and just walked away.

Between songs just now the DJ read the results of some nationwide study about the underwear changing habits of Americans.

    Probably got a federal grant for the study.

He and those of his age up to around 25 or 30 are constantly looking for a “ hack” as they call it. Which is code for a lazy way out. I rail against it everyday. Their hacks generally take twice as long once you take the time to do it over the right way.

    I'm disgusted you actually did it. Thats why they can get away with it.

  6. I stumble on the same thing in one of Butch's videos where he says make sure the club head starts the swing not the hands, shoulder or any thing else. This drill is the same thing and will definitely accomplish the same thing. I will be using it religiously.

    As a side note I have said this before but thank you speedster my game has improved at an unbelievable pace thanks to this thread and the JB thread.

  7. Guy's an ass swipe no question. Son is 12 been playing since 7. Never said word one to him actually played with a baseball grip till is first year at golf camp and "Coach " showed him an overlap grip. Just hit it and find it. He now can really play all while having fun. "Teacher leave us kids alone". Dads like this need a life.

    P.S. Was a coach for basketball from CYO to D2 could write a book about the ass wipe parents. Girl's parents are the worst trust me.

    I haven't found a more forgiving accurate iron. They might not have the same distance as the lower lofted irons of today but just as forgiving. I have done a few demo days with the 800$+ irons and nothing is better just longer for the same iron. Using a higher number club does have it advantages against those look in the bag folks looking to be clubed lol.

    > > Speedster just wondering what grip type does Butch advocate neutral, weak, strong ? As a sidebar I widen my stance per your advice, keep the club more in front as you advised. Working out well. The reason I ask about the grip is because I found with the new wide stance etc a little strong left hand position and a weak right hand position really helps for me. Definitely keeps my backswing from getting flat. I also still use the glove for practice which helps tremendously. The RA2 is tempting lol.

    >

    > Get the Right Angle 2, it's great. He advocates a stronger left hand 2.5 knuckles showing. I wouldn't go strong then weak with the right, make sure the hands oppose each other instead. Which glove? These gloves work great to put your hands on the club how Butch wants them:

    Thank you just by luck that's what I found works well for me. Left 2.5 knuckles, right is is opposed I call it weak. Don't let this thread die. Great stuff and really helping me, ball striking and ctrl has improved tremendously. Few guys would take the time and effort to maintain and answer all these questions.
