I had a pretty solid shot into the green on the 18th last weekend. I was one down in my match so had to win the hole to get a half. I had 140 yards to a back left pin location with a strong left to right wind blowing. I lined up at the left edge of the green and hit a perfect shot that started dead at my target and faded back with the wind about 8 yards to land right on line with the flag about 15 feet short of the pin. My birdie putt was a bit misread (right weight but...
I'm surprised I'm the first to mention this, but all this talk of talent and the drive to practice for hours on end in terrible weather etc as different things, no one has picked up that this is talent. Talent comes in many forms and I believe that you don't necessarily need all of forms to be great at something. You need a lot of them but you can make up for deficiencies in some aspects by being brilliant at others. Zach Johnson is a perfect example, not in the same...
Looking forward to what looks like it will be a "typical" british open weather wise. I'm going to go for Danny Lee, after his two best weeks since turning pro his confidence is sky high so I think he may be one of the outsiders to keep an eye on.
You made the right choice. As much as it would have been a boost to the ego to win it apart from that it wouldn't have done much else. The downside would have been much greater.
Totally agree, I think the person that posted that quote was meaning well but if you take a second to think about it, it makes no sense at all. Maybe he was meaning worst putt is better than worst chip? Best putt and best chip are equal (in the hole) but as you say, best chip is in the hole and worst putt is ages away. Either way, I always look for a way to putt the ball, even if I am 15-20ft off the green. However there are some times when you just can't and have to suck...
Having very badly sprained my left ankle (I'm right handed) a few years back, no ruputure just sprain. I can sympathise for him. I was back riding my bike in a few days but walking was very difficult. I'd say he will probably be ok to swing but the walk around the course will be the most difficult. Any time you walk on uneven ground or up/down a hill I had to be very cautious not to roll it again. Actually, I rolled my ankle again about 2 weeks after the initial injury...
Yay, go Danny!! :)
I agree, is the USA the only country in the world where sports betting is illegal? Just cannot understand it.
Great commitment there Pete, I live quite far south in southern hemisphere and sometimes in the middle of summer hit the course at 6am. Also staying out till 10pm is great (although now with a kid that hasn't happened for a while). Longest day down here you could be on the course from 5am till 1030pm. I think up there you guys get even longer daylight hours?
Just stumbled onto this thread yesterday and loving it so far. Thanks for sharing your story Pete and very jealous of your setup. Was at the course yesterday practicing on frozen ground and thinking a home sim setup would be just the ticket. Pity all my rooms incl garage are 8 foot stud :(
