 Your putting stats will improve as soon as your ball striking improves.  3 putting is a lot less likely to happen when you are "striking" the ball closer to the hole vs. "striking" it poorly and leaving yourself longer putts which brings 3 putting into play. The same for your short game.  When you are striking the ball better and you miss the green, a stronger ball striker will leave their shots closer to the green.  Closer to the green equates to an easier executable...
 You are still conning yourself if you think short game is the #1 reason for not breaking 100.
One of the biggest ways I see people Con themselves is by not TRULY playing by the rules but thinking they are actually putting down an accurate score (which makes them believe they are better than they really are).  Taking a breakfast ball off of the tee; ridiculous gimme putts (probably the biggest Con of all!); taking very generous drops from hazards, etc etc.  Usually, they are the same players that play in tournaments where they really have to play by the rules and...
Couldn't agree with you more. Aside from that, super happy Jason finally got his major!  It's was a long time coming and he absolutely deserves it.  What a year for golf...
 Are all the other wives of PGA Tour Pros golf diggers also?  Maybe the "not so attractive ones" no and the attractive ones yes?  Keegan Bradley has a really hot GF.  Is she a gold digger?  She just met him recently (maybe a couple of years now).  How about Webb Simpson's wife who met him around the same time in his career that Amanda met Dufner?  She must be a gold digger too! There is no mystery that woman (and also men for that matter) are attracted to success.  Just...
 I'm pretty sure Amanda was with Dufner before he made it on the tour and started making good money so with that being true, I would assume she got with him because she actually really did like him; not because of financial reasons as you have suggested.  Sure when she started dating him, he was an up and coming golfer and that probably played into some of the attraction but so what?  It's no different than a girl dating a broke guy in college studying to become a doctor...
 I agree with this.  Heck, make it a 4 week, 8 week suspension.  She has done a lot to bring attention to the game that that shouldn't of been discounted when the decision for punishment was made.
I chose the first option.    It adds to the allure of the tournament which makes this tournament what it is.  Would it be "ideal" for the former winners to sign off earlier, maybe BUT I can envision when I have a child one day, taking them to the Masters and saying, "that's Tiger woods maybe the best ever, I remember when he...." or "that's Phil Mickelson, one of the best ever," etc. Those opportunities are amazing and only can happen at the Masters.    With how the...
The only time I use iron covers is when I pack my clubs for travel.  So while on the course, the irons and wedges are fully exposed.  Everything else is covered aside from my driver.  I throw the driver cover in the basket because it's the longest club and while in the bag, it towers over everything else and doesn't clang against anything.
Tiger makes the cut, has a look at contenting but in the end doesn't.   Personally, if he makes the cut and has an average round, I hope he takes it as progress and doesn't go mental on himself for not contending.  To be honest, I just want him to make the cut, that's my only expectation "right now."   I'm pumped.
