Guys, what do you think about the 2017 US PGA not being on SKY? 

Is it a good thing? if NETFLIX got hold of it plus one other major, would it make you think about cancelling Sky, are they doing a decent job. I know I like watching the open on the BBC with no ad breaks, certain presenters 'put peoples backs up'.............. 

Simple things like shot tracker should be on every televised shot in my opinion. What would you add to golf coverage if you had your say?

  THE OPEN OR THE BRITISH OPEN?
Posted by: GolfCodeWeekly - 07-13-2017, 10:51 AM - Forum: GENERAL - Replies (1)

Getting around 120 entries a day to the quiz currently and i have had a number of emails and PMs telling me that it is 

THE OPEN 


Some have said THE OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP also

but i look at it this way, in the USA they call their U.S. OPEN   THE OPEN and we call it the U.S OPEN (WE BEING THE UK)

The quiz is for EVERYONE, inclusive you see, but more AMERICANS ENTER than those from the UK so in the interests of international diplomacy (Take note DONALD) i went with their naming versus how I would normally refer to it.

For the record I CALL IT

THE OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP

  DRIVE IT LIKE COLT?

THE POWER AND THE GLORY VERSUS SHORT AND STRAIGHT WORKS!


This is golfs endless debate, hit it further or hit it straighter (FYI i am firmly in the hit it further camp).  

Golf has a problem with distance and it is that unless you use electronic devices you will not have the first clue how far you actually drive.

Most people consider 300 yards, to be a mighty long drive, now on the internet you will find that a huge % of golfers hit the ball 300 yards or 320 yards or something ridiculous yards.  

I usually ask people if they have ever been to a PGA Tour event or even Played Golf with a TOUR PRO and watched these golfers up close who as a group average just under 290 yards it their drivers on par 5s.   

I can tell you pros CRUSH the ball v your average internet golfer who claims massive yardage.

It is no wonder people exaggerate, we all know DEEP DOWN that Power makes golf easier and if Jimmy hits 250 yards my drives are better i am around 300yards.  Problem is Jimmy hits 220yards and you are 25 yards by him.. ba info built on bad info and repeat, it is no surprise all these daft figures are banded about.

Watching a TOUR PRO hit a driver up close and personal is something you need to do!  Amateur golfers instantly realise that TOUR PROS drive the ball on a totally different level when they actually stand beside them and watch them uncork a driver down a par 5.

Colt is the PGA Tours straightest hitter!




The average five handicapper hits it 250.93 yards a figure which includes run


65 yards shorter than the PGA Tour’s biggest hitter on average, well over half a football field behind 
(Long way!)

Whilst the average driving distance for all MALE golfers using Game Golf under 220 yards, to put this into some context, if you drive it 240 yards consistently, you are a long hitter at club golf level

The average 3 wood goes 188 yards!  a figure which internet users would have you believe is the average 7 iron, which incidently flies 133 yards.

5 handicappers, average just under 251 yards (Now 5 handicappers are more likely to be younger fitter guys) and they are 65 yards behind the longest on tour!

So if you hit the ball 300 yards on the internet, congratulations to you!  But unless you have stats to back it up, or earnings from your Tour, then i am going to be inclined not to believe you.

  How to ACTUALLY gain those 15 yards
Posted by: GolfCodeWeekly - 06-01-2017, 11:53 AM - Forum: GENERAL - No Replies

The problem most golfers have is not a lack of information about how to hit further, nor is it a lack of proper equipment, the reason most golfers his the distance they do is because their training to gain distance involves swinging pretty hard at a bucket of balls and thinking they found a secret.
As the article says correcting a poor strike is the fastest way to pick up yards, but to push the parameters of your swing towards longer maximum drives you need to gain speed, it is not actually that hard if you are an average hitting golfer and you COMMIT to swinging faster.
I would highly recommend THE LONGDRIVE BIBLE by Sean Fister (You can find it on Amazon).
I am under 6 foot tall (Just) and at my fastest I could swing a 48 inch driver at 141mph on a Trackman. It was not by accident, yes i was blessed with good distance to begin, but i added a full 15mph to my swing speed, which is 40 to 45 yards over a period of around 20 months
(Kept a diary, yup i am quite focused!) 141mph was the fastest I ever got to, on other devices stupidly high readings over 150mph were a regular occurrence, but most of these readings are juiced to some degree, i was never even close to that!

You want power? 

Buy that book and thank me later
