My golf swing evolution - 2017-09

First ever recording of my golf swing. I decided to put it on YouTube for easy access. This was taken about 4 months ago. This is a swing that I had before I decided to get a bit more serious about golf. I can see how bad it was, although…

Enjoying golf practice at sunset

I like practicing at my club close to sunset. There is almost nobody there, or if there are, they stay at one hole and practice with a dozen balls. I picked hole 2. It's a short par 4, but I wanted to just practice my swing, so selected a spot…

My new Wilson lob wedge

I paid 17 times more for my new Titleist Vokey SM6 wedges than my Wilson lob wedge. I'm no expert, but I don't think they play 17 times better. In fact, I don't think they play any better at all. I hit as many crappy shots with the new Vokey…

Used a golf pitch fork for the first time - ever

No, I have hit greens before, but I never had to use the pitch fork because my balls never made a pitch mark on the green. The greens at our golf club are really dry. Plus they are in Sydney, so we don't see that much rain here. Today, however…
