    I figured I would just make a thread for my fellow golfers out there. We can all just shoot the bull here... Talk about the great shots, and not so great ones, etc.

    I'm 6'3" and I hardly bend my knees at all :D
    My 3 iron is as long as my 3 wood LOL

    I find playing the longer clubs I don't raise up in my swing like I used to. My dad saw the improvement so he started getting longer shafts too.

    I haven't decided if I like the stiff shafts yet on those Burners....only played them twice.

    See I'm 6'3" and I have my irons 1.5" over standard and I think it may be part of my issues that I have with my swing now. When I was a sophomore in HS, I was a 4 handicap... I now sit somewhere around bogey golf. So I have been on quite the slide the last 5 years. I have a good plan set up this summer as far as work goes, so I am hoping to get out more and get my swing back this summer... *Fingers Crossed*

    So I spent 2 hours on the range yesterday tying to figure things out... Turns out that "my" 3/4 swing is a full swing to the rest of the world. Figured out a lot of issues. :Woot:
