I am also a keen golfer and astrophotographer. Although I pretty much suck at both :cool:

Excellent stuff Jimmy!

As in thanks for bringing the article to our attention! :grin: My brother always calls me when he catches these articles and exclaims, "I can't believe this golf pro does the same stuff you do!" He picked up Jimmy on his Fantasy League last year when he found out he did Astrophotography like his little brother!

I'm use to asking for astrophotography help here --- but can I now ask for help with my backswing too? :bawling:

The best advice I got was to take two weeks off from the game, and then quit it altogether.
