    All golf in front of you is best golf. I forgot about your set up. Is the club behind the ball at all or is it at like 7 o’clock or 9 o’clock in relation too the ball.

    Not sure about the clock face reference. The setup started as a means to avoid hozzeling the ball when I was learning. I have a pretty good dip as I throw the club face at the ball so I started standing farther away from it to allow for “the reach” as I get to contact. At address, you can I see I kind of shuffle my feet to a closed position as I waggle before pulling the trigger. Starting a swing from a still position just never felt good to me.

    It’s definitely unique but it repeats.

    Edit to add: Much of what I do now was an effort to chase distance when I started to get serious. I’m a short, flexible man so I focused on trying to draw the ball and elongating my backswing to help build speed. I would always try to get every last ounce of my pudgy weight moving through the ball.

    This is a clip of my driver move circa 2007.

    Top left is fairway hit. Top right is green in regulation. Dots are putts.

    Played from 7100 yards today and shot 90. It’s hard to score when you can’t keep it in the fairway at that distance.

    I only played from that far because the dude we got paired with was a legit 5 and could hit the ball a mile. Given my skill (or lack thereof), I’m good with 6500 yards.

    Kirkland Signature putters are in stock online, $150 for a 100% milled putter. Basically a Cameron nock off.

    I don't feel like spending any money on clubs right now but that is tempting.

    Watched some reviews on these.. Consensus seemed to be it was fine but not any better than a lot of comparably priced putters.

    How does equipment work in college golf? Do they get anything towards it or is just straight player pay? Maybe assume they get the friends/family discount that one or the guys at the course the other day was bragging about.

    They also get demos like crazy. I had a friend who was the #5 starter for Clemson, and his garage was full of demos. He also was the SC State Amateur Champion, which played the mini tours.

    One of my best friends was on the team at Alabama but played basically never because they were so loaded. Could get one set of irons a year for free without any haggle. Wedges could get a bunch of. Sold a bunch of shit on eBay the day he finished his eligibility

    I know in SC, if you were in the top 3 in the juniors rankings by your Junior year, you got a "sponsorship." Kid I know that went to Clemson had Ping his Junior and Senior year of high school. My teammate that was always top 5 had the paperwork for all the companies but they wouldn't let him send it in until he got to top 3. Another kid had TaylorMade, and then Wesley had Callaway back then too

    I hated them, the lack of distance was maddening.

    I bought them because I hadn’t played in over a decade and thought it would be easier to re-learn the game on same-length irons.

    I feel like those are something where you would have to find a full demo set before buying. Granted, I know technology has come a long way, but I couldn't image hitting a 7iron in a simulation bay to get fitted for those.

    re: the one length stuff, and specific to Bryson, I wonder why he doesn't go to a tiered length system instead of straight one length. meaning 34567 are all one length and then 89PSL are a shorter length or something like that. It just seems so awkward to hit delicate shots around the green with a club that length.

    I think he likes the additional speed he gets in the short irons out of the rough. It adds an extra level of advantage for “bomb and gouge“.
