  1. Gave up range because it caused issues with iron play especially. If possible just play on a course for practice - 9 holes or even less & if you can go at a non busy time play 2 balls. I used to play at a course that had a couple of practice holes, a short and long one you could book for an hour. Currently my course has a (hidden) practice area that you can use if free.
  2. Haven't thought about having a swing thought.....do you think it could be a good thought to think of one?
  3. Played with a friend the other day - & we agreed could only have 3 clubs each. In the end because wet and muddy went for 7w (24') , 7i (35') & putter (nearly chose 3 iron instead of putter - putting on the day was dreadful so might as well have used 3i!). Friend had 22 degree hybrid , 8 i and putter. Was interesting - what clubs would you choose?
  4. As well as a line do you also need to balance your balls to improve putting?
  5. For one I still don't understand what you mean by "resisting with both legs and feet" - resisting what or doing what?
  6. Only watched it from the 7.30 ish mark - thought was ok. Only issue was with his mic when outdoors! Thought the trackman bit was also quite good. He is not promoting "casting over the top".

  8. Tried the aim small again today - seemed to work well especially with driver and fairway woods - very relaxing.
  9. Tried the aim small today - not sure worked all the time BUT certainly did no harm and strangely quite pleasurable. The putting tip she gave re hitting up to ensure ball rolls at steady rate - tried this on very soggy aerated greens & certainly distance control seemed to be more constant.
  10. Here is the link to Bill Owens teaching a group of beginners in Spain
  11. BTW if you want a simple way to develop a sound balanced swing check out Michael McTeigue the Effortless Golf Swing book plus the video series of his 8 or so chapters has been uploaded on YouTube and available for free.
  12. Yes he has some valid interpretations - my problem is the videos are too long (and this is the free extracts) simply because there is too much repetetive talking and banter going on - find I have to skip through lots -perhaps just due to bad editing by whoever edits the content.
  13. And interesting that I beleive Brian Sparks also spent time in mainland Europe - I think Spain & France at time Bill Owens was quite active coaching .
