I thought Phil Mickelson is already HoF in golf. There's a youtube video about him giving some kind of speech to an audience in 2012. Hall of fame inductuon event?
Davif Duval did shoot 59 (once upon a time...) Still it's quite impressive to have on your record. Nicklaus only ever shot 62 I think. Best final round in tournament, ever. Though Furyk for sure made a good 59 also. He even had that bogey.
Yes i have hit greens with 150m 7-iron. More often it's the accuracy which is problem not distance. So instead of hitting the green, sometime i get push or pull shots to the side of the green. Someone once said that those straight shots really are difficult in golf. It's true. Currently i'm working on the accuracy to be able to hit mostly draw shots. It takes some effort to get the clubpath more in-to-out it seems.
  For a regular shot with iron... When you think about it from a physics standpoint. You hit a ball with the club...you are transferring momentum into the  ball. Too much energy is being expended in ball spinning. smash factor for a mid-iron club should be about 1.35- 1.4, on a good hit in the sweetspot.  Small amount of roll is expected I think, especially in mid-irons and long-irons. But for you obviously, you go with whatever distance your clubhead speed affords you to...
Nicklaus obviously turned his hips a good amount.Hip joint is just a ball-socket joint which connects thigjbone into the pelvis.Turning the pelvis througj the knee and feet action, is also turning the entire upper body into the same way the pelvis in the backswing.This swinging effect caused by the pelvis allows comfortable shoulder turn at about 90deg or more.Sam snead and nicklaus were both classic swing users.I think the difference was that snead was more upright with...
I have a jacket and pants from something called Air-tex...   I kind of bought them for general purpose outdoors also...   It's supposedly water resistant but I havent really tested it in complete downpour.   More often than not theres been good thunderstorm along with the rain clouds.     IF YOU NEED COMPLETE waterproof, then you must wear like a rubber raincoat / parka and rainpants. Not breathable.   For one level worse waterproofing, I can heartily recommend...
putting chipping and pitching are all easier than 300+ yard drives tho... Especially from middle tees, 300 yard drive will shrink course quite a bit... carry over danger, easier approach
I think the only thing where Phil or someone may have enforced rules, was maybe one or two of Rory's teeshots. It looked from the camera, that one of Rory's teeshots was taken from the wrong side of the teepeg line. I suppose someone could have challenged legality of that teeshot. For this reason, I myself always tee from about half a foot from the teepeg line.
Taking advantage of the rules in my opinion is ok, assuming it is possible to do so.   Sometimes it's the smart thing to do. Like I remember once how Bubba got a free drop from bush, after an errant drive in Waste Management Phoenix Open.   Maybe Bubba is smarter than what meets the eye.   I suppose if Phil had felt serious about the ruling, could he have lodged a claim on the ruling?   Did Mickelson allege that Rory was not in the correct order of play, or what...
I've been somewhat baffled by stack and tilt swing mechanics   Is it really possible to not lose distance? What is the reason behind stack and tilt supposed effectiveness?     the idea of no weightshift - sounds like a bad thing off the tee, when you wanna blast the ball with distance.   Would you throw a ball with stack and tilt method? Or would you throw it with the normal weightshift and traditional baseball style?   I don't think Bubba uses stack and tilt...
