  1. I think coaching is overrated in the Ryder Cup format. The Euros played better than we did and they won. Nothing much else to say...
  2. [quote name='kenoli22' timestamp='1411658205' post='10181605'] I've got a G25 10.5 degree w/ stiff ahina in great shape for the Scotty. [/quote] Got pics?
  3. KBS Tour pulls Stiff flex. 4-GW (8 shafts)...Played 1/4 over standard in my Titleist AP1s. Like new GP Multi-compound grips except the 4 iron which is ungripped. I can prep the tips on these at the buyers request. Just haven't gotten around to it yet...100.00 shipped Obo
  4. [quote name='cwglum' timestamp='1411563289' post='10174257'] Geoff Jones 'Slicefixer' has given ... emphasize given, a lot of solid golf information on this website. [/quote] I agree with this totally and it applies to all of this forum's instructors. I am hesitant to bash any of them because they are here giving what they are usually paid to give. That earns my respect regardless of whether I follow their method of teaching or not...As far as the instructors "bashing" each other...That is between them and has nothing to do with the rest of us...
  5. [quote name='bscinstnct' timestamp='1411347098' post='10159463'] Just interested in if anybody uses any keys, stance, ball position, swing positions, finish For hitting a draw with driver. I hit a dependable 5-10 yd fade and have given up on the draw since it just ends up in a hook. I like to really extend through and hit hard but I can only seem to hit a fade. When I look to draw and come inside, I feel like I have to stall and end up hooking or smothering the ball to not block it. I can hit a nice draw with other woods/hybrids/irons. Any tips?

  6. [quote name='kacer' timestamp='1411338685' post='10158783'] People that think you are thinking about all of his micro moves in a great golf swing are wrong. You train these in practice. Lucas and Kelvin are two of VERY few golf instructors in the country that can properly train a golfer so it becomes automatic. Also this is why most people never improve is because they are just chasing a feel or "flavor of the week" instruction. Lucas and Kelvin get rid of that and actually make their students better through proper training. And I could care less if other instructors call out othe

I would imagine that is the same for a great many members on here. Neil [/quote] Well, I'm sorry that I have offended your delicate sensibilities.

  10. [quote name='CoolPercussion' timestamp='1411248177' post='10153953'] I'm guessing it's something like putting or mental game but I don't really know. What do the pros have that the amateurs lack? Experience? A good caddie? Ball striking? Ability to perform under pressure? Luck? A little bit of everything?

  11. [quote name='fusionvic' timestamp='1411247650' post='10153909'] I picked up a Tour Striker Pro 7 iron, and haven't measured the actual loft yet. But on the range, I found that the best I could do was smack the ball at the very bottom part of the Tour Striker's club face. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't raise the impact point to a bit higher on the face. Has this been the case for others? I noticed that with a proper hit, I could send the ball about 150-160 yards. I normally hit my 8 iron (Rocketbladez 8 is about the same as a standard 7) 120-130 yards max. If I hit my 6 iron solidly
  12. This is gonna turn into one of those massive passive brag threads... To answer the question, right now I hit the ball massively high with zero compression so I would probably try to punch an 8 so it would come out on some sort of a reasonable trajectory...I would then get one of my very very random solid struck shots and hit it over the green...I am terrible right now...
  13. Excluding JsJones, if you take anyone's internet advice on this forum with your past medical condition, you are insane. Stick with what your Doc said. If you have questions on adding any kind of exercises to your routine, go back to your Doc.

I would measure his wrist to ground distance and see if he really needs that much length in the shaft.; and 2) put some contact tape on the club face and see if he is consistently hitting the ball in the center of the face with those long shafts.

  17. [quote name='Upstonhooper' timestamp='1410808679' post='10121439'] Dear expert clubmakers, I live in a part of Finland where access to pro shops and fitting centres is not like the US or the UK (otherwise the question would be easy). Facts: I gave my Mizuno JPX 800 pro heads to a friend (kept the PXi shafts for my 850 forged) and he had them reshafted with +1 inch R300s (which are 127g). I heard that normally if your ordered the 800 pro heads with a longer shaft they would give you lighter heads. So these are the standard heads in a longer shaft (that is heavier than my friend was usin
  18. I got to better than scratch playing with a flawed, self taught golf swing. It can happen...The problem with self taught swings is that they are full of compensations and if you mess with one of them, the whole chain is jacked...I know...Happened to me...
  19. [quote name='LaggingBehind' timestamp='1410413918' post='10099635'] The tech at EW told me my swing was expensive, and I think hes right lol. [/quote] That tech is an idiot. Swing speed has nothing to do with cost of shafts...There are plenty of sub 100.00 shafts out there that will fit you...
  20. Hitting one shot well doesn't really mean anything. If you do it consistently, that's something else. You can hit the ball solid wih a flawed swing though. I have done it for many years...
  21. I don't have speed issues but the iPhone app has bugs. If you go to the replies to my content or whatever it is (I deleted the app...) it gives me constant connection errors...
