This is the place to ask questions on the mechanics of the swing etc.

  1. Kevin Haime or 19th Tee for Lessons

    Has anyone been to both? I'm thinking of getting a 3 pack from either one of the Pros at Kevin Haimes (Not Kevin himself) or one of the guys at 19th Tee. They're both about the same price so I was wondering who's been to both and who you thought was better.

  3. Stack and Tilt

    I have never seen the DVDs on S&T but I think I have developed my own version of it. Basicly keeping a little more weight on my front foot, dropping my front shoulder a little bit during the take away and a nice balanced follow through. On short irons, I love it. You come down on the ball...

  6. Contact on face of putter

    So I have had the same putter for almost 8 years now. It's a TM Rossa CGB Daytona 1 Blade. Thing is, the wear on the face of it is clearly more towards the toe than in the center. This tells me that for years I have played my putts off center and have avoided the sweet spot of the putter. ...
