2014 Humana Challenge- Inside the Ropes Pics and Player swing videos

66 posts in this topic

Planning on driving out to the Humana Challenge next year for the Friday through Sunday rounds. To anyone that has been, do you have any general advice or recommendations for getting the most out of this experience? It will be the first PGA event I've been to.

Thanks!

Id love to help out, shoot me an email.

If you want to help, post here. It's inappropriate to ask people to email you.

What kind of bullshit is that? It's that users decision whether or not they chose to email me. I have a lot of connections down here and would love to help out but I can't post any details to an open forum because of the obvious necessary privacy. My intentions are good, I'm trying to help. Take it or leave it

Thanks for the Pic's Mike. Brings back many great memories.

Question, What are the red signs which indicate a number of "steps"?

Thanks Club Rat

Thanks Club Rat

Number of steps just fits in with the health and awareness theme that Humana/Clinton emphasize this week.

Amazing, Gary Player with that impact position at his age! A thing of beauty!

I never thought i would see Gary Player with a (small) spare tire around his middle. And what kind of 'training' club is he swinging?

Um, that is just his shirt overhanging his belt, not his stomach. Gary Player is probably more fit than half the PGA Tour and those guys are half his age ;)

Awesome pictures Mike, thanks for sharing.

My boss is actually there right now and is going to be part of the Pro-Am part of the tournament.  In fact, my bosses Caddie at the tournament is the same caddy that caddies for Joe Durant.  He called my boss on Saturday from Hawaii at the Sony open, where he was caddying for Joe, to confirm they will be working together (of course, my boss was super excited)..  It's Kinda cool because Joe Durant won this tournament when it was the Bob Hope Classic in 2001..  My boss should have some interesting stories when he gets back which I will be sure to share when I get to talk to him about it.

Great pics.  PGA West looks to be in immaculate condition.  It is always interesting to see the varied compositions of the tour players' bags.

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Sounds like we just have a different barometer for what "bad" is. This particular case isn't about "adapting" to the new site, the controls are largely the same. The problem is they blew everything up so people can see it on their phones which dilutes the quantity of information you get get to see on your PC. Also they removed useful features like the regions to again make more space for mobile users.
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      Yes, it is extremely popular among Asians of every kind here because it's a rich man's sport in Asia. Many Asians (Korean, Japanese, and large growing Chinese/Taiwanese and many other Southeast Asians) come here and find that Golf is within reach of their "class" so they sign up their kids to play. I'd say that my wife's friend is in that category, and she also convinced us to play as well. So, here I am.
    • Putting Yips
      I completely changed my own putting stroke this year.... twice. Last year I had a terrible case of the yips and was two and three putting a lot of greens - some of the two putts were on putts that were 3-4 footers resulting from chip ons. I averaged 37.8 putts per round. My back hurts when I bend over practicing putting for any length of time. I tried to fix it, but gave up after a while, decided that I needed to hit more GIRs and get closer to the pin. My putting would always be mediocre. So at Xmas I bought a long putter .... cheap $60... no one wants them anymore. I tried side-saddle and practiced in my living room. I took it to the green yesterday and I didn't like it. I changed to the "shoulder-connected method" except with my right arm fully extended and right index finger along the shaft of the putter. I hold the putter gripped over the top like they would when anchoring it to the chest. Now I just rock my shoulders and arm as a unit. Having the right arm fully extended takes my right wrist completely out of the equation and that is what was causing my putting problem. Now, neither my forearm nor the putter head is touching my body. I am making a legal stroke at the ball.  After about 15 minutes work, I was lag putting to within gimme range of the holes on the practice green. When I'd miss the mark, the four footer would still drop. Now this is with a completely new stroke, and not an anchored stroke either. I'm standing fairly upright too so it's easy on my back and I can practice for about 30 minutes every time I go to the range without dreading it. While this might not cure my scoring woes this year, if I look at last years Game Golf analysis, I could save about 3 strokes a round by going from 37.8 putts per round to 34.8.

      Facebook updates all the time for performance reasons. Read their release notes.  But never judge good usability by Facebook as they are one of the absolute worst sites out there.   Honestly?  There isn't.  Some people are still stuck in old web menus but usability has only risen in the last decade.  Are there bad sites?  Sure.  But most sites are far and away better they anytime in the past.  You just have to adapt to them.  This isn't a knock on you its how society works.  I am a user experience designer and study this a lot.   Once a person gets used to changes, going back to the old version would be impossible     
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (February 2016)
      Got to the range to drop off clubs for my daughters high school coed golf team tryouts. I sure hope she can get on the team. She's about a 15HC from the men's tees, it's going to be tough. Cross fingers and Practiced my downswing transition on grass and hit much better shots on the grass range after the first few shots. I hit too thin on the course, but was able to get some serious height on the grass range. Going to practice some more on the grass range and use golf club delivery to my daughter as an excuse to spend the extra money. Also, I feel like I can really go after the ball on grass because a fat shot is not as penal on the body as on a mat.
