re: One Swing Thought - makersmark1
[quote] Are you saying use shorter backswings with longer irons[/quote] For me, a shorter backswing leads to better contact. Others may square the face with a long swing, I cannot. Golf is hard. Get a pro to evaluate your swing. ...

re: One Swing Thought - makersmark1
[quote]My second shot (on a good day 90% on a bad day 100%) is a fat iron or wedge. If I’m 100 yards out on my second shot, odds are I’m about to hit a wedge 20 yards. [/quote] Maybe your ball position needs an adjustment. I play wedges near middle of stance. It may sound weird, but focus on ...

re: New Iron Purchase - makersmark1
Yes. They will fit you into what works best with your swing. Many sets only go to 5 or 6 iron now. Club Champion may help you decide between hybrids and fairway woods. They may help you figure out the lowest iron you should carry. Everybody’s optimal bag is a little different. The most...

re: Talked with my financial consultant today - makersmark1
[quote]So are you saying put 100% into that fund?[/quote] It is likely the lowest cost fund. In the long run, costs are a drag on total return. It would be reasonable to have 100% of your money in that fund. ...

re: Lob wedge - makersmark1
Lately, with wedges, I’ve been clubbing up and using sort of a 3/4 swing. Creates a lower ball flight with more spin for me. ...

re: Any idea what the changes at Augusta National are? Pic included - makersmark1
“Sandcapping” I think that’s what it’s called. Basically, they smooth out any odd contours that may have developed. I’ve heard 11 tee is being moved further back. They have an incredible budget....
