    When I start fading the ball it's one of two reasons:

    1. Body alignment. Where are my shoulders and feet aimed. Is my stance open? I recommend throwing down a club aimed at the target and then line up using that.

    2. Swinging with all arms. Shoulder turn is non existent.

    Did I play against you perhaps? I just thought he was one of the cockiest people I had ever met. Not really my style. He was a pretty gracious loser though. My spots on the loaded teams you speak of went from #3 (eight grade), #1, #3, #4, #4-5.

    I think this is part of the problem. Noticeably better when I work on this, but I need to work on timing, tying it all together...getting everything synchronized and feeling good.

    I'm going to give a shout out to our assistant pro at Pine Brook: Brad Leubchow. Very reasonable cost, and he's a fantastic teacher for all skill levels.

    Has anyone ever heard of or played in the Acura Alumni Challenge at Pinehurst? I won a scramble and got to go this year, and it was ridiculously awesome. Wake didn't field a team though.
    I'm pretty sure you're better than me, so it's more like "rich man's LK."

    I have a confession and this thread seems like the best place to do it.... I am Arnold Palmer. And better than all of you put together at golf.

    Can you take lessons there and not be a member?

    Ballpark cost? I'm probably looking to invest in a series for early spring.

    I think he's in the $50/hr range with discounts for purchasing multiple lessons at once.

    Very fairly priced.

    Nah, I only broke par in one tournament round this year.

    And yes, that's 100% #humblebrag

    That's really fair. I may look into that after Christmas.

    My reccomendation would be Rodney Morrow who is currently at Golf Galaxy beside the mall. I started with him when I was 13 and went through my junior year. He's a great teacher and even better guy. Played on the tour years back and has been the instructor at Grandover, Bryan Park, and Medowlands so the accolades are there as well.

    I had a lesson with him a few weeks ago, and he was good. I didn't love the set up at Golf Galaxy because I couldn't get visual feedback on my shot.

    Bob Byman is not exactly local to WS, but if you ever wanted to combine a Vegas trip with some excellent golf instruction, check him out.

    Great player and teacher. He can get you deals at the TPC Summerlin as well.

    Yeah, but Butch didn't go to WFU.

    or play on back to back WFU NCAA Championship teams, either.
