Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

I had to shorten up as I would get too flippy at the top at times and lose the angle on the way down and could get my forearm back on plane.

Shortening up allowed me to e a lot more aggressive thru the ball and take the left side out if play when I need too (which is always, I hate hitting a right to left shot)


Question though, any of you guys ever heard of the golf machine stuff?

What is the biggest issue that gives you trouble with your swing?

I've always had issues with maintaining my spine angle. Consequently, I had to save too many shots with my hands and it often resulted in inconsistent, slightly thin contact. I've been working really hard on maintaining the angle of my spine on the downswing this spring. It's a tough sensation, because I feel cramped on the downswing, and my left foot wants to spin out to myself space to clear, but it works.
My feet went bad last June and I didn't hit a ball for 9 months. Last fall I went to the 'Foot Doctor' here in Springfield and for a small fee ($400.00) I got some custom orthotics. I thought they would help but only to an extent. I was wrong and they have helped me a 1000%. I'm golfing with no pain. Hell I can run around like a kid. As giddy as a school girl!

I haven't played enough to know what my swing trouble is at this point but I did play my first '18' in almost a year. I played alright. I had hit a few buckets and then played a few '9s' alone just getting shit together and then I played '9' keeping score all leading up to my round. I played alright. It seems with this Cleveland driver I can hit a huge hook though. I guess if I struggle it's not with mechanics so much as with tempo. I just have to swing slow and I seem to hit it pretty well.

So I guess my swing issue is tempo!

Yes. Way, way, way too technical for my liking. I read some of the guys on GolfWRX (I lurk there, occasionally hit up the BST) who subscribe to that and my eyes just glaze over. I don't know how anyone could ever pull the trigger with so many ideas running through their head. I tried the Encyclopedia Texarkana as well. Gave me the worst case of the shanks I've ever had.

Given how light those Cleveland drivers and shafts are it wouldn't surprise me if you needed to step up a little bit in flex.

I had it made with an X-stiff shaft but you may be right.

Yeah, you really have to implement one thing at a time to work on otherwise, yeah becomes a jumbled mess.

My swing coach all thru high school and college was a GM guy so he was a lot more versed in it that I, but I really like the two plane philosophy a lot more. Bent right wrist flat left wrist etc as well, but I tried to read the book myself am yeah, it's gets a bit crazy.

A lot of the bigger guys implement some of the stuff that I've seen, but they aren't full on homer Kelly guys.

What's the consensus on this (if there is one)?

The R&A and United States Golf Association have confirmed that the ban on anchored strokes will come into effect from January 1, 2016.

Golf's governing bodies proposed the ban last November and Rule 14-1b has now been given final approval after consideration of comments and suggestions made during the 90-day consultation process.

I think the long putters are an absolute disgrace to the game and shouldn't be used, but that's just me

Absolutely.

Minute movement of the hands is an essential part of the putting stroke. Taking the hands out of the stroke is, to me, like someone using an anti-slice tee.

The only mistake the governing bodies made is not acting on it sooner. They made the same mistake with square grooves twice and the COR on the driver.

To answer your question more specifically, O-City and I are in the minority from what I've seen.

I'm so flipping frustrated right now with my golf game it isn't even funny. I can't seem to hit a drive that doesn't fade, but of course when I line up to the left to play the fade it goes straight as a string. It has to be something simple, it's just got me bamboozled right now..../rant

When you hit the ball, where on the face are you making contact? Toe or heel?

Also, what directions do your divots point? To the left or right of the target, or straight on?
