I'd classify myself as a solid golfer. For me that means I can play golf to a standard where I enjoy it  ;D the one thing I am fighting with, and always have, is a slice from left to right off the tee (right hander). Anybody any ideas on how to cut it out? Irons and short stuff has always been solid but when on the tee I have absolutely no idea about the final destination  ;D

Swing path and club face. Nothing to do with swing speed. Swing path and the club face at impact dictate ball flight.

its all the physics of the when the ball and clubface are in contact with each other. the distance is down to the swing speed during that connection.
 my own issues (and why the slow down and 3/4 swing worked) were because my swing with driver was too much hip and hands too early and  too fast. That was causing the hands to get ahead of the club before impact meaning I was coming across the ball (or the heel was ahead of the toe) at the impact. By slowing down and not swinging for the fences, the rhythm of usual long irons swing straightened the whole thing back up with no grip, or any other path changes required. For me- simpler was better, and I didn't really mind giving up a few yards off the tee...

but as said above, every single body is different, and what worked for me, may not work for anyone else

a couple of things to try that worked for me with the same issue. golf gods only know if they are similar issues.

1, Try slowing down your take away and especially your transition off a shortened (say 3/4) back swing.

2. try getting the back of your left hand flat to the target just before and just after impact

also make sure you have the ball level with the back of your left heel (if you're a righty)

Quote 1:
“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

Assange is being extradited on charges of actively encouraging Manning
 (in response to Chelsea Manning saying "after this upload that's all I really have got left")
Assange replied "curious eyes never run dry in my experience"

Not trying to equate the two, but where the hell do you draw the line. If wiki are getting dinged on this does that mean that the NY times is protected by freedom of speech, but any other paper that ran the story (like the guardian) should expect its board, leaders and journalists get arrested and extradited.

With the arrest this morning all of the hysterical right vs left hysteria will dominate the news.

In the US there is an ongoing debate as to whether the publication of the Revelations of the US spying on emails and electronic communications was public interest or treason. Very strong opinions on both sides.

Speculation ongoing as to whether Assange extradition is to silence him or to flip him regarding the 2016 presidential election.

i'ts going to be an interesting read of the actual report. Barr's summary is interesting, and Barr clearly is positioning that there is no smoking gun, however the idea that there is not enough evidence for prosecution is very different from an exoneration.

Let's be honest though, Trump looks like he has dodged at least this bullet.  Not that he didn't collude with Russia, but that there isn't enough evidence available to the Special Investigator to convict him.

However this is the kicker:

Are the democrats still pinning their hopes on a porn star?

Whatever happened to that Russian collusion? It's all gone a little quiet from Adam Shitt and company.

you have rumors of AOC commuting campaign funding.

meanwhile congress,  the SDNY and the special investigation has evidence of DT committing campaign fraud.

its a real pity you didn't make it to a Jesuit school where if all else failed a decent education could have been beaten into you.

Ah breakfast- my absolute favourite topic

so this is one of those things where the only fry we should really be talking about is the ulster fry,

Its the superior sort of a breakfast...

also- tea- must be a mug of tea from a tea pot.

Coffee with the full ulster is just an abomination, and I drink 4-5 coffees a day, but I know their place



I know it's a separate topic- but any thoughts on the ideal filling on a Belfast Bap?

sausages, bacon and egg (just a wee shade past runny) with a bit of brown sauce if all is going well.

None of these things ever go well in other countries.

and also- how can americans not do sausage rolls???? Pigs in a blanket just don't cut it.

and thoughts on best brand of pudding- white and black?
