Maybe they're just a degree out of whack from playing and need to be flatter just to get back to where they were. Anyway, you know what's best for your game.
Good get.
Given that most of the shots are live, do you feel the guys in the truck are Kreskin-like in their ability to know who is not going to hit a shot that will require them to cover it up? Most taped shots are good shots, for obvious reasons, but that's not always the case. You think at the Masters when Phil misses a two footer (or at this year's U.S. Open), they aren't showing that, of course they are. Johnny Miller hasn't been villified over the years for commenting on...
This doesn't make sense. You don't necessarily "beat the game" by shooting under par. Course conditions change, your personal health and mental state change, "beating the game" (assuming that makes sense) might be shooting 6 over par on a given day, given certain conditions, for any given pro (you are using pros as examples). The premise is flawed.
The Golf Channel should have some more original, instructional programming. I like Breed and I believe he enjoys what he is doing and is good at it, but the format is too frantic and his use of toys a little too contrived at times. It's a good show for the type of show it is, I just would prefer a different type. A good, normal 1/2 hour on one phase of the game could be done in any number of ways and be a lot more effective, and I think draw an audience.
For heaven's sake, the networks will normally dwell on it, and give the announcers plenty of opportunities to take the really bad ones apart. The announcers continued to comment on it for the next few holes. Things were happening so quickly in the "race" for the top 30 that there weren't a lot of shots replayed that would normally be replayed. I actually enjoyed seeing a few more shots for a change and not endless replays. No basis for crying "conspiracy" on that one.
He had to know he was on the bubble, I can't imagine, as quickly as the landscape was changing and how close everything was that he knew exactly where he stood, which is why the casual third putt shocked me. After the Masters, then injury and working back for this and now the end he had, he's got a lot to come back from again, in my opinion. It will be interesting because he seems to take his failures pretty hard.
Send him a Fed Ex this week, that should clinch it!
It depends on where your head is when you start. I don't have my head completely behind the ball with my wedges, but I don't move it forward when I swing with them. As for the range thing, if it's all going wrong, what I do is work on wedges and getting alignment right, solid contact and a good tempo, taking a divot, releasing, etc. Sometimes, even a good 1/2 hour of chipping, followed by some 40 or 50 yard pitches (half swings). I may not even hit a seven iron until...
Nicklaus played like that, but in most of the reading I've done, I haven't found it to be the most common theory in terms of ball position. Like many others I subscribe to the ball moving progressively back for shorter clubs, but I don't know if there's even a total of 2 balls' difference between my driver and my wedge. I don't go beyond the middle of my stance, though, for normal shots.
