    Tour Striker PlaneMate

    I just ordered this training aid after watching a video from TXG and reading some strong reviews. That video is below. This training aid in particular is focused on helping you maintain width and face control in the swing while properly rotating. Have any of you THP'ers tried this?

    Why Not Soil vs Sand?

    I was having a discussion with some friends and was curious about this. Why don't golf courses keep soil on the tee boxes and carts for divot repairs instead of sand? Seems like it would make more sense in terms of the groundskeeping. Price? Drainage?

    Lead Tape or No?

    Do you use lead tape on your irons? I was thinking about how complex swing weighting can be if you decide to change grips or length. One of the more widely used alternatives is utilizing lead tape. Personally a HATE the look, but I love the feel when it's right. How do you find that perfect balance?

    Is the Road to the PGA Tour TOO difficult?

    I was having this conversation based on another thread and wanted to bring it to the forum. In basketball or football, you can essentially play in high school or college and if you play well, you can be drafted to play with the pros. You also have the option of trying to "walk on" with teams and...

    #OnceandForAll: Which Wings Reign Supreme?

    I was having a discussion with a buddy and it came time to settle the debate once and for all. In the world of wings, which reigns supreme? Drums or Flats? P.S. - I added a third option for those have no preference, but it's also the wrong answer. :ROFLMAO:

    Golf Lies: Which Give You the Most Trouble?

    At my course, the 18th hole plays down hill towards the water with a carry over the water to the green. If you hit your drive more than 250yds in the fairway, you are left with a downhill lie to an elevate green. I'm sure it's mental, but I have split the fairway on this Par 4 hole and still...

    Too Cold for Golf?

    A twitter exchange full of 7 clothing layer references and wind readings led me to ask post this simple question to THP'ers. Under what conditions is it too cold to golf? What's your breakpoint and where do you live?

    Shout Out to Budget Golf!

    I reached out to Budget Golf on Twitter, just trying to see if they could help me track down a club that had been discontinued. I'd been struggling to find one in new or like new condition so I decided to reach out. This wasn't the first time. I'd done the same in the past on a pair of shoes...

    Changing Your Stock Shot/Ball Flight

    After seeing some real issues with snap hooks a few times this year, I set out to change my stock shot shape to a cut/fade. The draw (and the snap hook for that matter) have been fairly easy for me to play but increasingly harder to control. Some of that was grip...ball placement...path. Okay...

    100YDS & In: Pickers, Diggers & Everything in Between

    I'm curious as to how many THP'ers are pickers, ditch diggers, or are surprised on every swing. Haha! Where do you categorize yourself? I tend to dig, but not nearly as much as I use to. I don't take many full wedge shots anymore, but that doesn't stop me from serving up footlongs of fairway...
