    WTB: Nike Method Core Drone Putter

    35 inches in length. Preferably with a head cover. The going rate on eBay seems to be $65-80, so ideally I'd like to pay less than that.

    Golf Shirts vs Regular Shirts

    Yesterday I ran to play a quick 9 after work. I had my usual work shirt on (a button down short sleeve semi-casual), and its usually comfortable at work so I decided not to change into a golf polo. By hole 3 the shirt was sticking all over me due to sweat, and it felt like it was tugging on me...

    NGA and Gateway Tours Merge

    Saw this press release and found it interesting. Having a mini-tour cover the whole country would probably generate more interest & sponsors. Anyone thinking of joining, or just generally happy about the news? http://www.ngatour.com/news/264#.U48jBsso4m8

    Shook's swing

    Swings: http://youtu.be/ZdCRt_CQymM My first time posting a video here. A couple things I noticed: my takeaway starts a bit with my hands; my right leg gets too straight; and I think I'm rotating my hips too much. Any thoughts/advice/drills are appreciated.

    Working the right muscles?

    I recently made some swing changes, and after a range session my glutes were sore. I've never had that happen before. Are they sore because I shouldn't be working them, or are they sore because they're finally being used properly?

    Clubfitting session 2 - encouraging!

    I went for my first club fitting in November. I was disappointed in the launch monitor results, because I thought I'd had a decent swing developed. My driver swing speed was only 85-87 on average. Worse yet, the monitor showed I was coming out-to-in a whole 8° on average. My stamina was bad too...

    US Amateur Public Links

    If you haven't heard, it's being discontinued after the 2014 season. That's too bad, in my opinion. It was nice to see a national tournament for those of us that have never been able to afford to join a private club. I know it's not the most popular tournament (searching the THP forums revealed...

    Question from my fitting

    Last Saturday I finally went in for my iron fitting. I got on the launch monitor with my Nike VR Split Cavity 6-iron and my shots were all showing 125-135 yards total distance. However on an actual course my 6-iron is my 150-160yd club. I asked the pros doing my fitting about this difference and...
