  1. Equipment Check-Up at KH

    Hey all, Anyone ever done the equipment check at Keven Haime's? I am just looking to get an overall assessment of my equipment and what not and this looked like it would be a good all round review. Thoughts?

  6. My Swing - I'm Self Taught - Driver & 6i

    My swing with a driver and a 6 iron. I've included slow motion on each shot from both angles. My typical shot is a fade with 6i to my driver, I play a straight ball with my 7i-60*. A bad shot is usually a pull or I hit it fat. I usually pull it if I can't miss right. What do you think?
