If you use the tags youtube and /youtube (in brackets), and place the video link in between it should work. Not the entire URL but just the ID# at the end of the link.

So for ex you would put QgDB-pf4oyI in between the bracketed tags

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Won't comment on your swing, But your really best doing this when your hitting a ball. Personally for me and I think for the people I play with, their practice swings and actual swings are very different.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Our south course is getting renovated over the summer. New greens and tee boxes. Right now they are in the process of killing off the greens. Sunday is the last day it is open. You should see these things. Probably running a 14 on the stimp meter. You have to watch out when you lean on the putter as it will slide right out from under you. They surprisingly hold shots coming into them though.

Are you excited about how the south course will be after the renovation?

The greens did need a redo. There were spots that were getting questionable, but it's gonna SUCK to not have one course until Labor Day. I need to start playing some other courses this summer.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Watching Rory “struggle” with his driver in a few spots today, I’m struck by these guys just continuing to let it fly. Don’t see him steering it out there.

Definitely something I struggle with is that steering wheel

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Peeked at the tee sheet when I went off for today's round and almost the whole afternoon was completely blank. I need to remember that Mother's Day would be a great day to play 36.

Also: Forgot to restock my bag so I was playing whatever I had in the ball pocket and man the old Bridgestone e6 is still a great ball five years after they stopped making that kind.

From now until Labor Day you're not supposed to play in Florida. You're supposed to play 'at home' in NY, NJ, PA, OH, etc.

Fun site if u have 20 minutes to kill. Video preview for every hole on the supposedly incredible 27 hole layout. I feel like I already lost a dozen balls and I havent hit a shot yet.

I'm not sure this is even possible today with modern clubs.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

There’s probably a million golfers that can affirm this is still possible with modern equipment.

I can never believe how close all the drooling spectators get to shots. Especially to the right of iron shots

Look for a couple of Gerald Ford golf videos for similar occurrences.

Fred Couples in that video might have the steepest backswing I've ever seen

New NLU video this week was pretty interesting. Would DJ Pie shoot better with the pins/flags removed from the greens and just playing yardages to the middle of the green. As a mid-handicap who sometimes tries too hard to hit a cut or draw to certain hole locations I love the exercise.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

When I used to play my course as a single in the morning I would always pass the person cutting the holes by the 7th or so and play blind the rest of the way. I would know if it was front, middle, or back based on progression but that's it. One other advantage is my greens are small so if you hit it in the middle of the green you would never have more than about a 40 foot putt max.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

OK place your bets!

First tournament back. I am playing in a 2-man scramble tomorrow, No mulligans, putt everything out, no BS. Guy playing with me has been as low as a 1 but is coming off of injury as well and it around a 5 currently.

Main goal is to not have to take a bogey. I think we can shoot around 9 under if all is going well. Birdie all of the par 5's, then find 5 more. Guessing winning score is -12.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Just had a career worst range session. Legitimately hozzle rocketed about 25-30% of my shots and couldn't figure it out. Something just felt off and there was a huge line for bays (city driving ranges are incredibly busy during the summer) so I didn't feel like I had the time to figure it out and just rushed through, putting in bad work.

It got me back to the basics, and I think these are two of the best videos I've ever seen for getting me into the right swing thoughts and swing path. When I'm swinging well, I almost have the feel of I'm "backing" my butt into the swing during transition, then once it's in position I can turn the hips and give the club the room to come through. When I'm swinging bad, I suck my butt towards the ball and the club has nowhere to go but over the top. I took a tooooon of really bad swings today.
