    Just swing?

    After years of watching YT videos, reading threads and taking lessons. Today, I took my driver and just went with what I have and just swung the club. It was decent, not great and predictable. Anyone just swing and gave up on the hip bumps, elbow to the hip, cover the ball etc? It's funny my...

    We were excited to buy our son a new car for his graduation and came to realize there's a chip shortage and basically you can't buy a new car easily. Does anyone which brands are not affected by this?

    lining up driver with right arm first

    I noticed while watching the ladies tonight, that many of them line up their driver with their right arm/hand, then they get square and then drop the left hand/arm in. I do it the other way around. Who is right?

    Anyone use two drivers during the same round?

    Curious, if anyone else carries two drivers. I have one set at 10.5, it gives me more distance and has slice tendencies. Then there's my old reliable 12 degree driver, straight but a little short. Rather than compete, I thought I'd use both depending on the layout of the hole. That takes out a...

    Staying on plane in the backswing

    The one bright spot of struggling with my new 10.5 driver, I realized how vertical my swing was in the backswing. I knew I had to swing more around. Doing some online research, I realized something basic that I ignored, the swing plane and the ol visual of the hula hoop, showing the tilted swing...

    Back pain - Dr Sarno's TMS theory

    For those not aware of Dr. Sarno's TMS theory, he says that your pain might not be physical, it might be connected to emotional stress. I can relate as it's been very stressful at work and it's just a matter of time before my back tightens. My question is, for those who have been successful with...

    body rotation to square the face

    I'm not sure who shared this advice (I normally save the good ones and refer back to it) On backswing you roll the club inside lead arm separates from body arms overswing. Downswing, you throw the club and stand up with no body rotation to square the face. Pretty much every amateur has...

    What gets the club up in the backswing?

    Looking for some help for a better turn in the backswing, I found this old video. I have this exact problem of using my arms to get the club up in the backswing and I take the club to the outside. How do you get the club up or is there no up in the backswing?

    Phil's thoughts on committed shots

    On the Golf Channel interview yesterday, it was cool to hear Phil's post game thoughts. He attributed the victory to playing committed shots. Not worrying about direction, but, be committed to each swing and focus on swing feels prior to the swing. Also, earlier in the week, he spoke about...

    Exercises for a better turn

    Can anyone recommend exercises or stretches for a better turn/pivot in the backswing? Years ago, a golf trainer/physical therapist tested me and said, I am good half way in the backswing. But, then need to stand up to complete the backswing. The result is my club gets vertical. Would love to get...
