Bueller, Bueller, Bueller...

nope just crickets---unreal how the new crew (breed) are so afraid to speak up and BE REAL...  they just keep taking and don't worry about whats being taken from them along the way...   

how could anyone who's got genuine and actual interest in the sport and their own chances to compete be willing to just accept , but have nothing of substance to go on...

First the momentum was diminished with GCs new way and thinking and loss of premier long standing events...
their points system and difficulty for new blood to enter the fray and mix of events by not being point worthy at the start...
European Long Drive group folding now recently...

its unreal...

So let's see..........400k event? Not a word on here about anybody going or knowing anything about it. As big as  Worlds. Lders here compete for 10k and the field is full. But where they are giving away 150k for first, nobody knows anything. 5 days away and the venue isnt locked up yet. Steenberg, Mo. You guys go to everything whats the deal here?

From what I'm seeing and being told as of YESTERDAY Nov 13 2018 they still had not secured Mission Hills as a site/facility and were still working on that...   
event is only a week away and you still don't know where the grid will be or whats needed for logistics to set up event... 
 SCARY if your one who's already booked flights, hotel , travel visa , rental car and made plans...   
 such unknowns should not be still in the air a week before event is set to be held...   
why cant anyone get these questions answered by someone from IGANZ or WLDA if they are still staying affiliated with this group...

Nitro

I only said I’m hitting the ball well and noticed my measurements were similar in that particular test, I posted out of curiosity, i do a little training to keep in shape, nothing more.

jfk,
How many times did you do the test?  One throw?  5 times each?

No worries.  If you practice doing those med ball throws and presses with several sets of 25 reps with different weighted balls a couple times a week, you will get better and throw/press them further.  Do some jumping plyo work for 15 minutes a day 3x a week and your vertical jump will go up too.

You will be better at throwing med balls and jumping for sure.  Will it make you hit golf balls straighter than before?  I doubt it.  It may help the golf ball go further though if the added muscle coordination and power are increased from the training. 

Nothing more than a "proxy test" is to asses potential.  I find it interesting that practicing (training) the proxy test can possibly help a golfer hit the ball further.

Just think how many world championships Animal would have won if he had a vertical jump of 24" of more. :o

I haven't personally done those tests.  Don't have a 4K med ball.  However I can still touch a 10ft basketball rim from standing.  Not sure what that makes my vertical.

Does anybody know how large the field is for the China event? That’s a pretty promising purse! What are the odds....
