Just seems to me there are no absolutes ... Simon got better than scratch by being accurate - it was a conscious decision on his part & it clearly worked (for him).    However, more golfers get that good by hitting longer at the expense of accuracy - it's been clearly proven.     I think the one thing we all can agree on is that MOST (not all ... i.e. Simon) players can get the best out of their game by being longer off the tee ... PS - I still think the decision maker in...
I haven't kept up with this thread, but I think it all boils down to how ROUGH is the rough on a given course.    If its not terribly penal, sure, 140 from reasonable rough is better than 165 from the fairway.   However, if the rough is high, I'm swinging more in control and 100% focusing on keeping it in the short grass, anticipating a longer approach shot ...   Another thing I don't think has been mentioned is that when you wind up in the rough (at least on the...
I hit a slump in the fall - full wedges seem to historically be my biggest issue (trying to take divots is usually the reason - requires such a precise ball strike).     I read here that the mindset with wedges should be different - they are scoring clubs & you don't need to hit them as hard as the other clubs - accuracy is more important.    THat helped me reel it back in - don't worry so much about generating spin by hitting them so hard, just focus on smooth tempo like...
Yep, me too  ... I think Michelle Wie's putting stance is directly responsible.
I'm fairly certain none of them offer hot deals on golfnow, so probably won't play any of them ...
Figured it was about time to post up a pic (better late than never) ... most of me are holding fish - this is all I got --->  
 Hopefully, he will "get it" eventually.   I was of his mindset initially & fairly outspoken about it ... until those of MUCH lower hcp than myself here made valid points to support that distance & hitting GIR's are paramount.   I listened & my game has improved this year
I've been playing the Duo last few times out in near freezing weather.    It's a good ball, especially in the cold ... and surprisingly long (won the long drive contest with it in a scramble outing).    No complaints ... well only one, the color of the yellow ball is very dull by comparison - not as optically bright as every other yellow ball on the market (and I've played most of them).
well, based on these misguided comments, it's clearly time to bring back my old avatar
 you just made the list ...
