Tiger won 5 times last year. Bubba has won 6 times in his career, 2 this year. We take him for granted.
That's my assumption.  Smaller sweetspot and more punishing for mishits.  My game set is Callaway RAZR X HL w/ graphite shafts.  The blade is a Titleist MB that I got for about $15.   Just off the range.  I started with the blade just to see what happened.  I was surprised that I was actually able to get 4 of the first 5 in the air and reasonably towards my target.  I have a new and greater respect for the professionals and scratch guys who can play blades.  You have to be...
After breaking 100 in 3 of last 6 rounds (96, 99, 99, 100, 100, 103) on mostly unfamiliar courses, I thought I had arrived. Lo and behold I go into a funk. 115, 110, 108. That sucked. After self evaluation, I realized that I haven't spent nearly enough time at the range. I was just playing and often with no warmup. Went back to the basics Saturday morning. Over 3 hour range session to replace my normal round. Almost 2 hours on the full swing (5-PW). Did not touch the...
Got a round in today with the swarm of gnats in south GA. Scored a 99 although I had 7 penalty strokes due to a few errant shots and not knowing water was in play on certain holes/shots. The fun and danger of playing a new course. This was my 1st back to back sub-100 rounds. #EXCITED #FINALLY 5 GIRs. 4 pars. 6 bogies 5 triples. 50% fairways (only 2-3 not easily in play) In trying to implement some swing changes, I am very inconsistent with iron distance. Also...
I am lucky to break 100. I can afford Pro Vs but can't justify them. When I buy balls, I buy the Top Flite Gamer and Gamer Tour balls. Great value for what I do. I have about 5-6 dozen Pro V that I have "collected" this year. It's amazing how many find on a typical course. They are cleaned and waiting on me to become a better striker. Thanks to all who made the Pro V the number 1 ball ... Found near lakes, trees, and OOBs.
Good tips. Both tips, slowing down and watching shot shape, are working well for me. Still trying to move more range game to course also. 
My best round ever. 96 yesterday (Rating: 69.6, Slope: 120) in a light to slightly more than light rain shower.     46 on front and 50 on back.  3 pars, 8 bogies, 5 doubles, and 2 triples.  I was going very good until I glanced at my score after hole 14.  The bogie on 14 put me +16 with 4 holes to go.  Predictably, I went double, triple, triple (on a par 3) on the next three holes.  Hole 18 was a 2 putt par on a par 5.     71% fairways ... Did not try to crush the...
Book arrival checkin. 10am in Atlanta.
I won't ask.  In Georgia, so I hope I get lucky by Saturday.  
In assessing the current state of my game, I thought I was playing too much. Sounds strange to say that. I'm pushing myself to get more time at the range before my next 18 (hopefully this Saturday).  My big misses are fat shots and RIGHT (push, push slice, and straight slice) and struggle to get anything to move straight or left. I am not consistent in releasing the club. I took a lesson 2 weeks ago and was given a few drills/tips. The guy basically said to...
