I don't see a problem with it, UCB, but I'm still kind of a noob on these types of things. If tuq sees this and wants to delete it I'll leave the decision up to him.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

are you saying they win the whole thing 70% of the time?

That leaves them at like 94-95% edge on average in each match.

Doubt they win every match 19 of 20 times against the best am's in the world, gonna say it's more like 85% of each match, so I'll go with 38% winning percentage.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

couple swings from the range today

ball was going everywhere, the actual trajectory though was fairly flat which after seeing the swings on tape shocked me

Wow, great looking swing Spenda! In my completely uninformed opinion, are you taking the club back a little outside? (that's the only fault I could see and I'm nitpicking and almost certainly wrong). Looks PGA quality to me. Did you say that you were around a scratch?

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

good observation on the backswing, the club isn't at fault as much as the arms/hands, they've started a bit inside forcing the club head outside

first few swings I taped this was much more exaggerated but I worked on it for a while and got it to this point, still plenty of work to do

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Does anyone use a spreadsheet to track their GIR, fairway %, putting numbers, etc.? Ship, Spenda, dagolfdoc, etc. - what are your thoughts on something like this? I'd think it would be a nice way to track what you need to improve upon and see exactly how you're doing. I've been thinking about making one but I'm pretty novice with Excel. If anyone has any thoughts or would like to post their format here, I'm all ears.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I used one when I was playing competitive junior golf but now I'm sure there are free sites that will do it for you

it's probably good to have concrete data so you can't bull**** yourself into thinking your hitting more greens or making more putts than you really are

Excel is super easy, just make columns with the stats, first column should be date, 2nd course, 3rd,4th,5th,etc... are the stats

you can type 12/18 for GIR and format the cell to spit it out in a percentage, or you can take an entire column and have a sum or average cell at the bottom

I did back in HS.

Just keep one area where you keep your raw stats. So you just enter in your # of GIR, etc. Then use some simple formulas to figure out your percentages.

I've also done it where I just entered in my scorecard and use "If-> Then" statements for indicating GIR (x or no "x"), FIR, Putts, Sand Save? etc.

Sorry I don't have the file any more but hopefuly someone has one that they can just provide you.

Yeah this was my thinking behind it. What are some stat categories I should look into? There's the obvious FIR, GIR and putts/GIR and total putts I guess. Sand save would be another good one UCB, as would scrambling % (par or better when missing the green) I'd think.

I made one in 2008 when I was first trying to get my game in shape again. I tracked FW, GIR, 3 putts, scrambling, sand, and mental scorecard. I then had an area that took my actual scoring average and handicap and netted my actual stats vs. goal stats. So if I had a putting average of 1.8/GIR and goal was 1.75 it would reduce my scoring average by however many shots that equated to. I also had it increase my score if I was running above goal/expectation. Meaning if I was at 80% scrambling but I knew 65% was the goal I had my score increase by however many shots that would equate to. I wanted to see what I thought my potential handicap could be if I were able to get to what I thought I was capable of in each stat. If I maxed out at +6 or something I would know I just needed to sell electricity. I think that year I built up to an actual +6 but had room to get to +8 or so if I hit my goal stats. I think my leak was scrambling and 3 putting that year. I did this so I could figure out where my time would best be spent practicing for the most return. I was working somewhat full time and wanted to be as efficient with my time as possible. I really need to start this again. I will build or find the spreadsheet and figure out a way to post it or something.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

What brand gloves do most people like? Gotta go get a few new ones as my last one is pretty much shredded from the end of last season and I had to throw it out when I finally got to hit some balls the other day. I generally prefer Callaway gloves, like the leather that they use but they tend to break down pretty quickly and are more expensive than most.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I prefer the Foot Joy Sta Sof. I find that a lot of gloves (especially the cheap ones I talk myself into buying) end up tearing on the palm. I'm also not a big fan of a lot of the synthetic models.

Excellent! I was thinking if enough people were interested we could all figure out what we wanted to track and make on that I could add to the sticky. As far as finding how to post it, I know you can just go to megaupload and do it that way unless someone has a way we could host it somewhere else.

I would always usually go with whatever, but then I found these. They're pretty cheap and it doesn't ride half way up my arm which is kind of nice.
