  1. I Our bodies aren't the same day in and day out, and they're always getting generally worse from age. I think the variations in having "it" are attributable to not only technique consistency (skill), but more often bodily consistency. I think that even the pros that aren't the picture of health have honed muscles and cartilage and in general have a wolverine recovery ability that the average good player doesn't have. It's like when the nba stopped being about finesse in the late 80s early 90s. Suddenly every single player was a high caliber athlete, with size and speed, and artf
  2. I just admire that he's mostly taken the right side of every shot out of play on nearly every ball he hits.
  3. Subject line says it all. I'd love to be able to do this.
  4. Yeah I think I'm doing a good job finding a way to hand-eye my way to a bad but workable result. I'm getting low 90s occasional 80s out of this, so I think it can only get better.
  5. I was working on what monte put up today, and definitely feel it in my trail side low after playing. I'll try to get the lower body more involved.
  6. If I can pipe the driver out there and get a good approach strike, I can get up and down when I miss, which is usual. Par 3s I always tee it up, so it helps me make the most out of a bad lick. If I could get to where I didn't mostly waste my second shots, I'd enjoy it more.
  7. When I've had the shanks over the years it is invariably a case of losing balance and rocking from my heels to my toes and getting the hosel way too close to the ball.
  8. I bob my head too much on takeaway, sometimes roll the face open, and on my really stiff and sore days I get stuck under my shoulders in the backswing and look like I'm mopping a floor - and can't do anything right. Looking at my swing on video, I wonder how I ever have good days, but sometimes shoot in the 80s w a 220 driver and 140 7i. Legit short game. Question: what's the first mistake in the sequence that probably influences the subsequent mistakes? Thanks. Roast me I don't care I wanna get better in any way that doesn't involve diet and exercise, as I

  11. Play it til u lose it. It is every golf ball's destiny to be struck repeatedly until sunk in water, marooned in an impossibly high crook of a tree, or otherwise retired in nature. Think The Villages in FL. Removing them from this life cycle to live in a bag or net or whatnot is unnatural. Destroying them on purpose is Jainist murder.
  12. Open shoulders. Basically forces the outside to in path. A square face is open to path, so the ball fades or slices. If you match face to path and release, the ball is going way left. If you match your shoulders to your square stance or close then to your stance, then make the same swing, the ball is going straight or small draw.
  13. A coach of mine told me once he liked hitting into the wind on the driving range bc that would tell us what was really happening with the strike. He's right. I think there's a complicated spin loft answer that someone more technical than me could attempt. In essence, there's some relationship bt your AoA and anticipated launch that can be optimized. If you match them up and there's less plus or minus difference, you minimize spin significantly. As for what has worked for me, I had to learn how to hit a draw with driver on command. It's the easiest club to hit a draw with at least for
