    McLovin's Journey to Improve - 2020 Edition

    It just seems so contrary to common sense. I'm starting to see this a tiny bit in my own swing progression. What I really notice is my worst swings are done with what I perceive to be the "fastest swing speed" and the greatest effort - the results are not good. But those occasional times...

    McLovin's Journey to Improve - 2020 Edition

    Love being able to listen in and glean some nuggets! Awesome share, Chris! And the swing looks good!

    Trying To Break 90 Club

    My game is looking up! I shot my first 9-hole round under 50 this year. On Monday my league played in 39 degree weather (I had paid for the year up front, and lost out on 4-6 weeks already, so my take was - "I'm playing regardless"). I ended up shooting 43 with 17 putts and 3 pars. And that...

    Trying to Break 100

    I swear with these Recoils I am also hitting the ball longer. Ask Snickerdog about them - they're his old clubs lol!

    Really good to hear Icey! I love my NXT Ignites but it would be great to have that level of comfort in a spike shoe.

    Malaska Golf - Swing Coach

    This makes a lot of sense to me. I haven't had a chance to practice much in the midst of the pandemic, but range should be opening up this week. I noticed Danny Maude saying pretty much the same thing; Watching both of these together was a "Eureka!" moment for me. And like Mike Malaska &...

    Trying to Break 100

    Like Snickerdog, I was having lots of elbow pain, and once I switched to graphite shafts the pain went away. Switching to Recoil shafts has seen more of a performance improvement issue. Clubs are longer and with tighter dispersion. If you can get fit by someone who has lots of shaft options...

    #PushCartMafia - Are you in?

    The lack of shoulder strain was the first thing I noticed when switching from a pull cart to a push cart. I also love having a place for scorecards, some extra room to carry jackets, drinks, etc. And it's a ton more convenient when playing cart path only (compared to riding)

    Happy Birthday, Snickerdog

    Looks like everyone is milking a certain theme here.

    2020 NFL Thread

    I know that isn't as exciting as how much Dak is going to get paid, but if you like offensive linemen, I thought this interview with Joe Thomas was fascinating (mostly the first 20 minutes): Best Quote (@ 10:40): "Swinging a golf club is a lot like being a left tackle" Thomas says he filled 5...

    Thanks for the article: I've played the Safari course - haven't heard of some of the others. Good info!

    Carry bag or push cart?

    The clicgear is really nice for walking when it's super hot out. I can stick a big umbrella in mine & it's nice to be able to duck into the shade between shots. Pushcart for me 100% - I don't have a carry bag

    Trying to Break 100

    I played 18 today and put up a sweet 115. Walked with my clicgear, but it was still tiring. I'm so out of shape right now. Swearing game was on point though.

    Thanks for posting. I need to do this drill!

    Trying to Break 100

    I played for the first time in weeks Monday. Shot a 52, so not good. I think I was swinging too hard & opening up my shoulders & lots ob balls were hit way left. A couple of encouraging results, though. I hit a few really nice shots with my mid irons. One 7 iron in particular was super high...

    I played Fox Den Monday - it was in pretty good shape. Nice to be out swinging clubs again.

    Clickgear guys, what bags work well with them?

    It looks like those new straps would keep any bag from rotating! At first I didn't see why they would be an improvement over the old bungee style. I have a Ping Pioneer on my 3.5+ which looks very similar (except it doesn't have legs). The RTC looks like a perfect bag for a pushcart like...
