I used to go fishing there a lot about 8-10 years ago - I can attest to the smell. It's just regular low tide smell . .and usually it's windy enough that you can't even smell it .. but on certain days you certainly can.
For some reason, though . .I think Augusta is probably all it's cracked up to be. I feel like if I could really play it, I would think it was the greatest golf course ever. I just feel like with all the hype surrounding a once in a lifetime event . . it would be tough to get a real feel for the place. I don't know how it is, though . .it's probably never chill. It's probably wall to wall tee-times every day all year and, if you're just a "regular" member you probably get bumped all the time for the big-time members.
Ok . .so here's what I would be into . .close Augusta down for a long weekend for me and my buddies. I would trade a year at even the nicest muni for that.
Where does 5SK say the weight should be on the lead side at address? Weight is much closer to 50/50 at set-up.
You're correct about the steady head. The weight/pressure shift to the trail side just "happens", even with good S&T swings
ALL good players shift their weight forward on the downswing.
Most good players reduce flex in their trail knee, it's not something exclusive to 5SK or S&T. Look at Spieth, Dustin Johnson, McIlroy, Bubba, Mickelson, etc.
There isn't a 5SK "set-up or takeaway", you're missing the point of what 5SK is about. Don't lump 5SK into a "one-swing" category.
Yes there may be some preferences with the set-up but you can have all 5 Keys with a flared feet, squared feet, strong grip, weak grip, aim your left, aim your body right, etc.
