Re: aejones shaves 25 strokes off his game

Pretty random bump, I didn't actually get an indoor setup yet this winter.

I was in Vegas this week and I shot 105, 105, 95 after not playing for 6 months. Still can't putt. Think I might have made a pretty good breakthrough in my ball striking after watching a random youtube video. In a cpl months I'll probably get back into posting videos/results, possibly even sooner if I try to make a few trips to some indoor places.

You seem to get a strange / unusual pleasure out of "bragging" about shooting 100+ versus all the (full swing) practice that you are doing.

Since you obviously don't care about improving your scoring why bother posting your scores ?

It would make more sense to post how many GIRs, FWYs you make, to support your "breakthrough in ball striking" :/

And why do I care ?
Just bored I guess, cold winter still here in Toronto , golf "forum surfing" is the closest to real golf I can get for another ~ month

I'm pretty sure the things you said are not logically consistent, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If you want to improve your level of play, you have to commit to it. It can't be a casual process.

Re: aejones shaves 25 strokes off his game

hey, great to see you and this thread back again

i still don't understand the problem with putting. have you ever talked to a golf teaching pro? or have friends that know alot of golf? they should be able to set you up putting really easily

putting to me is like bowling or shooting pool. takes very little to get reasonably proficient (like little kids often take to it right away, of course they don't overthink or have any tension)..... to get really good at aforementioned activities is a life long pursuit.

my thought is everyone can figure out putting pretty easily. guys i play with who often barely ever play golf but are athletic can always drive the ball quite well. irons and FW's take awhile to get comfortable with. and then i think wedges is where so many strokes are lost. i read that DJ spends 80% of his time on wedges and that's what usually impressed me when i watch the pro's.

can you post a video of your putting? like so many people do with full swing.

google "putting" and "metronome"....that idea really worked for me. even though i was already a good putter and i didn't practice with it much. but it ingrained the idea in my mind.

basically, the metronome idea is that your putting backstroke, forward stroke and follow-thru should take the same amount of time no matter how far the putt. just that putter travels a great distance. it takes some time to get the idea in your mind but i think it really works. and i will say that i doubt anyone anywhere necessarily achieves it completely..

for accuracy putting, something like a chalk line works well. a teaching pro got me into a putting mirror but i think it made me too tense. putting is alot about feel.

He needs some launch monitor info for this as well. These days trying to improve ball striking without launch monitor info is akin to trying to become a really good online poker player without ever glancing at your HEM or PT4 stuff.
