    Good for you. The original orange golf ball was the “Burke Blinder” developed for snowy conditions. So you can put away your ribboned balls and put on some shorts now that the weather is comfortable 42 degrees. Hope it helps. Experiment with the right arm and shoulder you’ll surely find a technique that suits you.

    Your question regarding the arms on the takeaway. I don’t know how you get the right over the left on the back swing. . Couples swing is unique in the way he allows the hands to get perfectly under the club at the top and big level turn (he developed because of a bad back) is completed late in the takeaway. Regarding hitting down on the ball that is basis for the “Stack and Tilt Method” It is precisely why Tiger hits the driver left. When Foley told him to keep 53% of his weight on the left foot he should have run for the hills. The max speed is developed slightly on the upswing.

    There has always been much discussion about who was or is the best putter in golf. The answers usually start with Crenshaw and go the gambit.Donald, Woods, Snedeker,Casper,Lopez.and Gary Player would tell you it was Bobby Locke.
    But without a doubt it is Jack Nicklaus. You can’t win as many US Opens and Master, as fast as those greens are, and not be a great putter. Jack is the best clutch putter, lag putter and says he likse the greens so fast the ball is kicking up dust on the what to hole.
    Look at Jacks set up. He’s down low setup behind the ball slightly open. his right forearm is nearly parallel to the ground and acts like a piston. It’s a very lateral stroke. Pick that spot on the back of the ball at which point the putter should strike the ball to move it on the intended line. Watch your putter head strike that point and don’t hit the putt,stroke it. Just like the full swing, try not to lift the right shoulder. Find the sweet spot. Hold the butt of the grip to your ear and tap the face with a coin from toe to heal and listen for the solid sound.
    To practice find a relatively level area on the practice green use three balls from 2 feet. When you make all three move back a foot. continue one foot at a time until you fail to make all three when you miss start over at 2 feet. See how far back you can eventual go.
    Good Luck

    I’ll answer this as a ” thriller writer”

    Brad, you’ll meet Trump and he will ask what you do. You’ll say “I write”. Trump ask, “Where? Home?” Brad will say “No really Mr. President, I’m Brad Thor’, ‘Oh the guy with the cool tights and big hammer”. I’ll bet my hammer is bigger than yours

    So I will fix your swing.
    When you take it back make sure the right arm doesn’t pick the club up prematurely. Make sure the the club head remains in front of your hands. (Don’t supinate the hands and bring the club head inside. Make sure you feel as though your right elbow is lowering on the takeaway (it isn’t really) as the left arm begins to swing over the right arm the left shoulder will remain high and the right shoulder should never tip up. You should feel like the arms are conitnuing to the top as the shoulders turn with NO upward tipping motion. Once you’re at the top your left arm and shoulder will be in your face (kinda like Bubba Watson or Greg Norman) unlike all your friends and everyone at the range. They will all have a huge space between the chin and shoulder. The downswing is automatic. There is nothing you can or should attempt. It’s all hand and eye coordination through the ball, Attempting to pronate through the hitting area is like trying to think about anything while swinging at a 100 mph fast ball. Coming over the top or making any such motion is the result of your mind and body trying to recover from a cr@ppy takeaway
    Good Luck
    Look at videos of Byron Nelson, Paul Runyan it will almost appear that the hands star before the club. (In Runyan’s case thye actually do ) Check nelsons waggle paying particular attention to the right wrist and right elbow. Picture that as you begin your back swing.

    Your originality is so impressive. Was it a nice nap >

    Wow that settles it for me. Isn’t that the Hollywood Flag ? “Stars in Bars”.

    Sounds like he could have used your help to sort it out for the folks. You could go on stage be kinda like the guy who signs for the deaf. You have cards like “BS”, “Oh My Golly” or my favorite “You’ve Gotta be $h!tt!ng Me”
    “Unless you’re smart enough” kinda leaves you out.

    “What if the Right Thing is Based on a Lie ?” Wasn’t a Hoagie Carmichael number.?

    Again from my above comment, “Shot difficulty? It’s easier than a downhill bunker shot and harder than an uphill one.” You’re a lunatic.
    It was Winnie Palmer on the Tonight Show” and it was about Arnie not Jack.
    Enjoy it up there at the red tees working on your “wringer score”. And good luck earning your” I broke 100″ pin.
    Let me guess. You pull a clubster with your ball retriever sticking up in the air. You have a John Daily pink driver with an “A’ shat probably c-3.with an Elmo head cover. All your Jane Blalock Irons are in the nifty little tubes with little plastic iron covers. You have a putter shaped like a peinus that makes your friends giggle. You wear two gloves and have cool golf cap made of beer cans and a fancy little wrist score keeper. And let us not forget your cute little Sponge Bob eraser in case you have to shoot an acceptable score.

    Not only are you a hacker you can’t read. See above “It’s easier than a downhill bunker shot and harder than an uphill one.” What about “harder than an uphill one” don’t you understand.
    BTW You stated that you’re a “plus 5″ meaning you’re two shots better than I am. Based on your lack of golf knowledge and simplistic ideas. I suspect that you can’t break 80. And that I could give you 3 a side,play four ways and win all beats and any presses.
    In the not too distant future you’ll see the new instructional method “Power Z Golf” and be able to say you gave the creator a bunch of cr@p on the Blaze. You’re likely a “Stack and Tilt” guy. Am I right ? Do you subscribe to”Stack and Tilt” that I consider golf cancer.?

    Likewise I sorry to point out that you know very little about golf and you can’t read. Pointing that out here “for all to see”.

    First of all I don’t sit at my computer and wait for comments. Frankly I don’t comment on golf because there is likely no on this site that can compare to my background or ability, certainly not you.
    I have been trying to be nice, comment on your comments and lead you a bit of golf knowledge. When I said I was a plus three. If you were a player would would have known in and instant what it was but you didn’t and still don’t think you understand.
    First of all a drop kick is when your driver makes slight contact with the ground prior to striking the ball . This causes the club to toe in making the ball have a slight left to right trajectory and creates over spin adding yardage. Every good player in the world knows this.
    Regarding your suggestion about a fried egg lie being easier than a down hill bunker shot. Because during the downhill bunker shot the club exits the sand faster and the shot prones to be bladed it requires a hit much further behind the ball making much more difficult to judge and has a dangerously low trajectory. than any other sand shot. Unlike the up hill bunker shot that requires that you simply strike the sand at the balls base with a normal swing. The club will continue into the bank of the bunker and the ball will pop up with a lofted trajectory.
    Regarding your question about “coming over the top” why don’t you tell your method for correcting a slice and I’ll tell you why you;re wrong.

    I’ve been on this site since sept 2011. I paid Beck’s $4.95 as support for his new venture yet have never watched an episode I dropped it when he raised the price to 9.95 with no notice.
    There is a difference between a -3 and a plus three. For third time I’m a plus three. If we were playing a medal tournament with handicaps applied at the end of the round I would have to add 3 shots to my total ,thus a “plus three” you would likely subtract 10 or more based on some of your comments. BTW the average score for men is 96.
    Your question regarding a “fried egg lie” is the lie created by a ball remaining in it’s impact point in a sand trap. Never occurs in course sand like river sand it generally occurs in silica or other soft sand. Shot difficulty? It’s easier than a downhill bunker shot and harder than an uphill one.
    I play Cleveland equipment, unique since their club line is now Srixon, I was provided staff equipment by a friend, Greg Hopkins before he left as Cleavland’s CEO to start Hopkins Golf.My only Cleavland upgrade in the last four years was to a 9 degree 588, Stiff and 2 degrees open.
    Here’s a question. What’s a “drop kick” ?

  • [1] May 22, 2016 at 9:57pm

    ProV1
    I never said I was a two. I said I was a plus 3. that is the other side of zero, 6 better than a 3 handicap. Meaning that I average 3 under par at my home course. I was a the Head Golf Professional at a public golf course in Orange county California.
    Scott Simpson and eventually Tiger Woods, who grow up on Dad Miller Golf Course in Anaheim won the Orange County Championship at my course. I held the course record 61 until the course was redesigned do to flooding.
    Need a name? Call Atchafalaya Golf Course in Louisiana. Ask for the Head Professional, who BTW is one of only three pros in the section hall of fame. Ask him who is the best driver of golf ball he ever played with. You will then have a name. I was the first person to hit three balls in bounds and average 300 yards in the National Long Drive Championship at Allondra Park In Los Angeles.
    A bit of the bio to clear the air.
    BTW You know what Hogan said about the “hook”? “All you can say to the hook is “get down””.

    Jason shall we assume you’re 91 year old who is diabetic, has a growth on one of your man boobs and has caught herpes for the sixth time. You’re afraid of dying because you’re a lonely atheist with no heir to whom you can leave your 1978 Pacer. And your heart transplant was obviously a failure.

    Prov1x Don’t use a 1 iron in your storm. God can’t even hit a 1 iron..
