DEAR LUMPY: Do you collect autographs from fellow players? I would.
DEAR JOHN: While I don’t collect autographs, I do have an extensive collection of divots I’ve saved from players over the years. To this day, I always carry a couple Ziploc® freezer size bags in my bag just in case.
DEAR LUMPY: I’m having trouble keeping my head from swaying during the course of the swing, and as a result, rarely make solid contact. I’ve been playing for almost ten years, and I feel like I’ve tried every tip out there, but nothing works. Please tell me you have a secret solution!!!
DEAR DRIFTER: I don’t have a secret solution, just the common tips for that kind of problem, like keeping your spine angle consistent, your chin on a post and hips in a barrel. But it sounds like you’ve tried all of these already, so it’s obvious your problem isn’t golf related. You should probably get tested for shingles.
DEAR LUMPY: I’m a 21 year old, six-handicap. I’m steady off the tee and great around the greens, but lately I’ve been struggling with my mid-iron accuracy. I’ve tried strengthening/weakening my grip and tried all sorts of shoulder/feet positioning. Do you have any suggestions?
DEAR LUCKY: I remember 21 like it was yesterday… cruisin’ the lakes with Brenda Connors in my black Scirocco… might be my favorite year…
DEAR LUMPY: I played in a member/guest last week and hit three homes. I don’t have a question — I just wanted to tell somebody.
DEAR LUMPY: This past season, I had a terrible time controlling my slice. Any thoughts?
DEAR MIDDLEMAN: Yes! Send your range videos to Lumpy@GolfDigest.com. Sometimes when I come off a bad round, I like to watch someone else’s bad swing.
