That is mostly what I concentrate on.
Amazing what people teach and players focus on. EVERY great player has maintained their posture from address to the 9:00 position on the follow-through. That is the single most important aspect to solid contact. Then, swing on plane and you never miss!:cool: Simple, yet so difficult to do.........:confused:

As I have gotten older and less flexible, I tend to stand up during the swing because my turn feels restricted. I try to concentrate on keeping my butt back during the swing, and to keep weight off my toes.

Yep. I'm almost 50 and had spinal fusion a year and a half ago (about to have another). My flexibility has gone down the pooper. I just focus on maintaining my spine angle and except that I'm 15 yrs shorter with the driver. Sucks, but solid is always good.

I am 69, and have lost 15 mph in swing speed and about 30-35 yards since age 50, but I still hit it pretty solid.

Saddlebrook or TPC Tampa

if you want to drive 40 mins.......................World Woods! Do not miss it!!!!
I got to play on of the World Woods courses once not long before I left T-Bay. It was the best round I've ever played. I loved that course, and if we had not have moved, I would have played it a lot more.

Played in US Open qualifier there twice when I lived in Boca. Would drive up about once a month to play there after. Love that place and want to go back!!!

I have not, but familiar with the area. Heard only good things about it.
It looks really nice. I need to go there and play, it's just 30 minutes from where I live, and I actually work out of Pineville now so I'm going to start playing again soon I hope, and that would be my home course. I was just finally starting to see a real improvement in my game when I left T-Bay. I loved the little Dunedin country club Donald Ross course, and usually played there, East Bay or Clearwater CC.

Yea.....85? Much better than the average player. I know some REAL hackers. You are not hacker
Thanks but I was a mid 90s player usually, I don't know why, but that day I was just really playing well. I had learned to hit a few shots by then, and was always pretty good on and around greens. I really need to start playing again, but my back and knees ache just thinking about it..lol.

I just got Hulu TV and watching the ToC at Kapalua Sunday just really gave me the itch.

Dunedin is real nice. Love all Ross courses.
