LOL. Good stuff right there.

The same can be said for putting and picking up girls in a bar. You can have all the tools and technique, but if you don't have confidence, you're dead in the water.

I have been playing for about a month and a half now and from reading pretty much everything I have had time to read on this site I have pushed my max D up by about 50 feet in the last week. I am hitting 330 pretty consistently and threw a few about 360 (beyond my track tape) I ws just happy to be able to throw my 169 star TeeRex straight today. I have started to coordinate power from theh lower body, with my snap. still a long way to go in terms of tying it all together. Then there is my golf game... with all the changes in grip and timing and the increasing amount of snap, I have been throwing some interesting drives lately....Oh well it will stabilize sometime...hey I am throwing my KC pro aviar 300 feet! So it will help to read and work at this, scores may vary but there will be pay off!

not to mention being crosseyed drunk doesnt help your game no matter how much you think it does.

I'm getting couple rocs any day now from gggt. Can't wait to try them. My throw is changing so much right now that I don't trust my buzz anymore. The difference between overpowering it and throwing it strong seems pretty fine. I still have flutter in the first quarter of my putter drives. Trying to straighten out my spin but keep up the snap. I flip them from a pretty steep hyzer with the angle helping to get some height then it planes and turns over and soars back to the right. can anyone throw an aviar straight and far?

Just realized after reading the term internet distance defined that this should have said, have thrown it, avarage more like 250 max d not golf, Big hyzer flip lots of room to travel up and over to the right. Sorry :oops:

Im in the same boat, I can throw a putter over 300', I rarely throw it on holes over 250' (if theres a tailwind I may decide its the best route)
