I was watching some of the nationwide this morning this guy kills the ball.  560 yard par 5 he hit driver 9 iron.  Also leads the web.com in driving distance.  Anyone have some good videos of his swing?

Lots of the guys on that Tour learn to tone it down a bit to keep it in play when they get to the PGA Tour.

According to Callaway's Facebook page - he is playing in the Sony Open in Hawaii this week.  Should be fun to see him hit the ball around the island.

For those that are unfamiliar with this cat... He led all 6 professional tours with a measly 323.5yd driving average in 2012.

That is insane but he will need to hit more than 57.26% fairways (ranked 125 in accuracy) if he wants to play on the PGA Tour on a regular basis.

Needs to keep more flex in his trail leg if he wants to really bust it.

Cally is going all in for distance this coming year. Already have Quiros, J.B. Holmes and List and just signed Woodland. Bomb squad marketing.

I saw him play at a US Open Qualifier this summer. I had no idea who he was, but after watching him for a couple of holes, I thought, d@mn, he hits the ball a long way. They seem to float very high and that day he was hitting a fade on his drives. He was usually ~30 yards past his partners off the tee.

You realize that the world's #1, Rory, is worse than that at 56.6% driving accuracy on the PGA Tour?   Seems to be working OK for him.

I agree with this too.  Driving accuracy at least on tour doesn't mean as much anymore.  The accurate guys like Toms and Furyk are the shorter hitters on tour.  Guys like Bubba and Woodland hit it so far, they just don't care if its in the rough.

425 yard par 4.  Hit it 275 in the fairway and have 150 left or hit it 345 in the rough and have 80 yards left.  It seems that the long ( and usually inaccurate) hitters have been having plenty of success recently.

Also remember, the tour only counts a ball in the fairway... Many of their bombs run through the fairway into the first or 2nd cut.  And as others have said... Having a shorter iron into a green is often times an advantage - even if you find yourself outside the fairway.  Their dispersion is still much better than the average Joe blow.

Good point but you are comparing Web.com courses to PGA Tour courses. I think it is a bit of a stretch to assume that Luke List has the game that Rory does and that he could only hit half of the fairways and still be successful.

    • My Swing (coop6)
      @coop6 The glaring issue is you are shutting the clubface immediately after impact. Many tour players are holding the face square until halfway up on the forward swing, some even open the face after impact. I have seen a few that shut the face as well but it happens a bit later. I was doing this because my club face was too open at the top. The reason you're doing this is because on the downswing, your body is not bringing the club to the ball. Your upper body should turn and begin moving the arms through. The body should lead and pull the arms, however this does not suggest the arms should trail too much that they become disconnected. Teaching pros argue all the time whether the swing is a oull or a push. Many say it is a pull, because the modern swing is taught to have the body pull the arms as much as possible, especially for power in younger golfers. However the old school still calls it a push, because there is always connection. Remember the body guides where the arms should be going. The body must go first where the arms will follow close behind. If you look at your swing, you can see from the top your arms drop down, which is great as it prevents over the top and promotes dead hands. The problem is the body isn't leading or pulling. The body isn't doing enough on the downswing. Look at the forward swing, it is mostly arms. The arms are going where the body has never been before. Don't let the arms go where the body hasn't been.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      I normally keep a true and accurate score even though I don't belong to a club, don't have an established handicap, and don't play in any tournaments. Still, if I'm playing my usual casual round...and really playing terribly, I'll occasionally toss the scorecard in the trash. It helps me concentrate on just hitting good shots instead of focusing on making a particular score...and my game usually improves somewhat....

      No problem! Excellent progress.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Here's my approach to eliminating the big numbers. Work hard on putting and chipping. I've always maintained that anyone can learn to chip and putt. Its the only part of the game that takes zero athletic ability....just practice, technique and confidence. I miss a lot more greens than I hit...but I make a lot of pars with a chip and a putt (or a very long 2 putt). Even if I don't make par, I often have tap in bogeys. Know your strengths and weaknesses...and be honest with yourself. Use that information to determine your "go to" shots. I'm a lousy iron player, but pretty consistent with the fairway woods. If I'm having one of those days where I'm doing nothing with the irons but hitting fat shots and shanks, I'll start hitting fairway woods off the tee in order to have a fairway wood for a 2nd shot (I carry 3, 5 and 6 woods). Even if I miss the green from that distance, I'll usually be withing chip and putt range (see the last paragraph). I'm normally pretty straight with those fairway woods, but can hit a fade or slice at will....but not a draw. If I'm in a spot that requires a draw to hit the green I'll aim for a spot short of the green (or even right of the green) that I know I can hit. Then try my best to make par from there - and be please with bogey. If I'm on the other side of the fairway and need to bend it to the right I'll be more aggressive since that's a high percentage shot for me. I've had days where I'm hitting my irons so poorly, I'll resort to playing bump-and-run any place I can. Yeah, it makes me feel like a chump when I'm bumping a 7 iron from 100 yards instead of flying a wedge in there....but not a much of a chump as hacking the wedge around and making a double or triple.

      Thank you for your opinion. I have things I am working on that I am committed to 100%. I am going to continue on what I am working on.
