  1. *Head and extra weight kit are being offered separately. 1. Taylor Made M5 Head. Right hand, 9 degree. Like new, used for only 1 brief range session and 1 round. $275 shipped. 2. M5 weight kit, 13.5g. These are heavier than the standard weights. $25 shipped. I accept PayPal and will the ship same or next business day via USPS Priority upon payment.
  2. Stretch and do overspeed training. You can actually achieve your goals within a few weeks if you do it right.
  3. Not mentioned but relevant: roll. It's reasonable to expect a lot more roll from any firm professional venue, particularly a links style course.
  4. Yes, do what you said. Take the clubs you want to work the distances with and document how far each of them goes on a waist high, chest high, shoulder high and full backswing. If you want to get fancy see if choking down the grip an inch or 2 decreases your distance as well. If you went all the way you could have 8 reliable yardages with 1 club. I do this and keep a laminated spreadsheet card that I made and reference it if I'm not sure (most of it is memorized by now). This also gives you options because there will be overlaps on a lot of the yardages so you can pick the right club for the

Also kick your hips back like you're sitting on a tall stool at setup. More knee bend if you can do it. All of this should help you from getting way up on your toes on your downswing which honestly looks like what's causing the EE. If you didn't EE with the weight shift you have, you'd be hitting

  7. If I drank every time I golfed, I'd be in liver failure.
  8. > @"j.b.newton" said: > Outside of my suits/dress clothes, I do look like Im on the way to the course. Even on the more casual days at work, I could easily be at home on the course. It helps/hurts that a lot of brands like Peter Millar, RLX, etc work for the office/dinner/course. Those sheeny golf shirts only look good on guys with less than 15% body fat lol. Otherwise every mole, pimple or fat cell you have will be on display.
  9. My club takes 80% of the course handicap, not the index. Doing it your way, if someone is 0.0 to 2.0 they don't change either so I don't see why a plus would need to change. The 80% rule is generally considered to favor the scratch golfer.
  10. Do you have dedicated wedge shafts that are different than the rest of your bag? Do you forward press your hands with your wedges?
  11. 9 hole combined scores are BS. Golf is an 18 hole game and that's part of what makes it difficult. Without exception I think everyone is capable of scoring well below their handicap for 9 holes versus 18. If you get a guy who can hold it together for 9 holes at a time and play well off his handicap, you're going to see some oddities with combined 18 hole scores.
  12. I think you owe it to yourself to at least have everything as it should even if your game isn't where you want it. As your game gets better and you practice more, you will develop habits that can be hard to break. If you are using clubs that are too long and have too upright of a lie that could definitely encourage you to develop some bad habits if you're compensating. If you had $100 to put towards it, you should be able to have everything adjusted and new grips installed.
  13. I went through a phase when I was striking the ball as well as I ever had and was not scoring better. It didn't take me long to realize the reason. Two-putting from 35 feet or getting up and down is the same on the scorecard as two putting from the approach shot I knocked in there stiff. Point is, to really score well, you need to be making a fair amount of 10-12 foot putts - almost never missing a 5 footer - and never missing a 3 footer. Also, everyone misses greens. Find a way to get up and down most of the time. That starts with not putting yourself in ridiculous places around the green.
