You want to film either "down the line" which is from the backside right down your target line at about hand height or "face-on" at about hand or waist height. Yours was kinda like about half way in between either of those.

Im curious how bending the club 1 degree upright changed the distance significantly' I can see it changing the ball flight left or right. Did you mean bent 1 degree stronger or weaker' Like I said I'm just curious.

Paula Creamer wants a women's Masters tournament at Augusta
I'm sure the media will try to pressure them into it, claiming women's rights trump the rights of a private club. Generally Augusta is HAF, though.

Here is some advice without seeing your swing. You need to learn how to hit "1/2" shots if you are going to continue to hit yourself into that position. What I do with my students is use their PW, GW, SW, LW. I make them learn how far they hit each with three different length backswings (club shaft parallel with ground, arm parallel with ground, and what I call "3/4" swing) We do this often and get essentially 12 (4 clubs X 3 length swings) average different distances. Several will be similar but will come in at different trajectories. It takes practice, but once you have any idea about the ...

What were your path, face to path, and angle of attack #'s' When on trackman. Sounds to me as if your instructor was trying to get you to shift laterally in order for you to make your path go a little bit more left, so you could control the right to left ball flight' Do you hit it fat more often or thin more often or equal amounts of each'

Can probably fixed, but it wont be worth it. My guess is the trade in value of that putter is probably like 40 bucks, and the cost to fix it will be more if it can be done.

Coming from a PGA teaching pro of over 20 years. I pretty much agree with all. Not a huge fan of stack and tilt. With the newer technology what they claim is happening isn't exactly happening.

Tigers choices now are block right because his path is too "right" or try to fix it by flipping his hands and hooking it. Needs to feel like he is cutting in from left to right, it would go pretty straight. Frustrating to watch can only imagine how he feels.

Its called Get Golf Ready. Its designed for almost total beginners. Its group lessons, usually I have between 4 to 8 adults in it. I would not recommend it for someone who has experience. You will be bored going over how to hold the putter and how to make a tee time. It is a good deal for a total beginners 5 lessons for usually $99 but they are group lessons.

Shot 36 during a 9 hole playing lesson today. One 3 putt bogey and one 2 putt birdie. Didn't do well from inside 120 yds. Need to put effort into that area of the game.

The ES14 will only give basic information such as Ball Speed, Clubhead Speed, Launch Angle, and some spin numbers. I dont think it would be a good use of $425. Use it on lessons from a very good instructor.

What's your best purchase ever?
I would also recommend waiting for a bit before going and getting a Flightscope or Trackman evaluation. If you cant be somewhat consistent the distance, path, face, and AoA numbers arent going to mean much. We use those devices to have a starting point and to see if improvement is actually happening. You also realize if your getting lessons and the instructor has one, they are not going to be cheap, but the instructor has put in time and money into his teaching ability.

Waste Management Phoenix Open - Tiger's back
I thought his comedic "Im just doing this interview so I don't get fined" was pretty funny considering the way he played. He is caught between his old steeper swing from Foley and his new shallower swing from Como. It really shows in his short game, that was the worst 2 day performance by a tour pro I have ever seen. He missed the green from inside 15 yards like 5 times. The difference is also why he bladed 2 sand shots the past 2 days. Its going to take a while for him to get used to the new swing, especially under pressure.

Tiger Woods, dead last
I am a PGA Member as well, and have been for about 20 years. Being a club pro has many benefits and many challenges. I don't recommend it to any of kids I teach nowadays. You really don't make any good money at all until you are the Director of Golf (glorified course manager). Nowadays when you are a young PGA apprentice you are making as much that serves you Mcdonalds. When you are the Director of Golf at a nice facility you can make over 100k. You do have to work some long hours, but usually get some short easier hours during the off-season. When I was the Director of Golf I would work 45 ...

Obama Finally Making Some Progress
If you have been here 4.75 years illegally, if you are caught will you be deported immediately' I seriously don't see how this same issue isn't exactly the same in another 5 years, like it has been for decades. I dont see how people in Central America and Mexico don't go "they let them in now legally with no penalty, if we get there and there are enough of us they will do it again." Does anyone believe we can protect the border humanely, to the extent needed'

Tony Stewart Runs Over Driver
I totally agree, and was arguing with someone about that. He wasn't on "trial" Stewart was, the victims situation shouldn't matter on whether Stewart tries to scare or hit him. Was he an idiot to get out of his car' Obviously.

Tony Stewart Runs Over Driver
They are claiming his levels were high enough to cause "impairment". I don't think it really mattered though. I'm pretty sure he gets out of his car and tries to confront Stewart whether he smokes or not.

The Airlines are really selling the same "airspace" to 2 people. The people in the back think they own that space, and the "recliners" think they own that space if they want it. When 2 people own things conflict will happen.

I think, and correct me if I'm wrong, but Buchi is pissed at the mall more than anyone. Is that correct' He thinks that the mall has to take responsibility for the actions of a couple punks.
