Has anyone tried new grips on their clubs. I'm thinking about going to midsized vs standard. I have a 60 degree wedge with a midsize grip that feels really good when I swing it. The only thing is I really don't take full swings with the 60 degree club. I use it inside 75 yards with no more than a 75% swing.

Had to get a new grip on my driver.  I prefer the feel of it vs the original manufacturers one.

I went all midsize about 4 years ago.  I couldn't play anything else now.

Has anyone here tried ShorPar4?

 

Its a monthly subscription box that I have been getting for about 2 years now.  I pay $40 bucks a month.

 

Most of the stuff gets sent back but I've gotten some of my favorite shirts from these boxes.

Careful with this, a larger grip can cause some unwanted fading..

Haha, that sounds like a hook.  Hands going before the lower half..

Yeah, that's my natural or comfortable swing.  At least with irons.  I've gotta really fight to make sure my hips go through before my hands.

If you guys ever need lessons there is a great guy at night hawk golf named Mark Russo.  He really helped my Dad who is a high HC a lot.

Swung my new clubs today. Def need lessons lol. And towards the end of the bucket my back started to clinch up.

Thats why I hate hitting large buckets at the range. Too many swings too fast. Happens to me too. Plus you start to come out of your swing. For me, overthinking definitely hurts, but you do have to think some and when you're swinging so often I don't.

Yeah, that's what I've read about midsize grips. That it's harder to draw the ball. In the past I've had weak fades but Ive also had times where I snap hook so my issues aren't always consistent. I got an old set. I think I'm going to get a midsize put on the 5 iron and 8 iron and swing them for awhile before I get anything done to my current set.

Playing Bay Club in OC on Monday. First tee time at 0630. That should be fun. Played it a long time ago when it was Deer Run. Been two months since I played hopefully the sucktitude reached an expiration date and I shoot a decent round. I also haven't swung a club since the last time I played so that may also be a good or bad thing for me. Oh well.

Man do I suck off the tee. If there is a checklist of things to do wrong I guarantee I check off all of them.

I would bet you should shorten your back swing.

You know, when I shorten my backswing on drives, I push or slice everything because my hands make it to the ball before my hips clear. If I backswing like John Daly, my big guy hips have more time to get out of the way and my drives are beautiful. I'm just not consistent at anything. But hit about 3 or 4 real pro like shots a round.

One of those things where you just gotta find whatever works for you.

The problem with shortening the backswing is that most golfers feel that they haven't made a full turn.  They then rush the upper body because they feel that they have to hit it harder to compensate for a short swing.

Shot a 73 the other day, par 70.  4 over on the front -1 under on the back.  Started on 10.  Doubled 8 pulled a tee shot OB par 3. Then 3 putted for bogey on 9.  

 

Then the next day followed it up with something in the 90's.  

 

Eff golf.
