Since i've started taking lessons i've had about 5 different swings and have information overload ( try to follow only one online training program, athletic motion golf).

re: Realistic Improvement - AbuTheMonkey
[quote]Prior 2015, I mostly hit 3 wood or 4 iron off the t. I was really short but learned to hit irons pretty well because of this. It was like playing double bogey golf at u club since it's so long on a few holes In 2015, I watched a million videos on hittin drivers and went to the range a ton....

re: Realistic Improvement - AbuTheMonkey
If you have the athleticism to hit the ball a certain distance (that is, you're not an old man poking it out there 190 with a driver or too unfit to get above 90 - 95 MPH on a driver), getting into the 70's is really a matter of technique and time. There are some elements of touch in golf that are ...

re: Do any of you Anti Trumpers here deny censorship of Conservatives on Tech platforms - AbuTheMonkey
Where conservatives go wrong is attacking these companies with the free speech angle or with threatening to leave to go to Parler or DuckDuckGo or wherever. These companies know that the demand-side network effects of social media are incredibly strong and that those apps will almost certainly neve...

re: Do any of you Anti Trumpers here deny censorship of Conservatives on Tech platforms - AbuTheMonkey
I dislike Trump immensely, but I definitely think tech companies are much stricter on conservatives and conservative speech than on liberals. Concerning mainstream media, I guess it depends on how you define that. I’d call ABC, CBS, and the like a bit left of center. CNN is moderately left with...

re: Italy reported 630 deaths today from cv19. This is approaching spring levels - AbuTheMonkey
This was always one of the primary and most glaring weaknesses of the lockdown strategy in the spring. Each successive lockdown and non-medical intervention is going to get less and less effective by some marginal amount. Fewer people will follow the guidelines, and as effectiveness lessens, the...

re: What's between your 3 wood and 4i? - AbuTheMonkey
[quote]I have a 3H and 4H but I hit them left every time. Either starts at the target and draws left or starts left and continues to draw left. They’re the only clubs in my bag that draw every single time. My natural driver flight is a baby fade or dead straight when I hit it clean. A 5 wood is i...
