  1. Thanks for taking the time to post this in response to my post on another thread.  Appreciate it.
  2. Pete's Programme (Single Digit to Tour Player)

    I would love to hear your thoughts on the DST after you have used it for a while.  Good luck this winter and I think you are making the right choice with the "one voice" approach.  Sometimes too many chefs...
  3. Pete's Programme (Single Digit to Tour Player)

    Sorry to hear of your decision but it is completely understandable as well.  I too will miss the updates on your progress.  Hopefully at some point in the future you will come back and post some updates with a few points on how you got there.  Keep your eye on the prize and do what makes you happy. 
  4. Pete's Programme (Single Digit to Tour Player)

    Pete, I hope each day you take just one moment to enjoy the peace and beauty of those mornings. :)
  5. Pete's Programme (Single Digit to Tour Player)

    Thanks for the long and detailed posts Pete.  That was great.  I appreciate you taking the time and enjoy the insight you are giving us into your journey.
  6. Pete's Programme (Single Digit to Tour Player)

    It's the evaluation stuff that really interests me.  If, once this round is complete, you feel comfortable sharing how the evaluation then goes into shaping your next phase of training (the adjustments you are making, the reasoning behind it, how you think it will address your goal, etc.) I would be very interested in hearing more about this.  Overall, great stuff.  It inspires me to go out and work on my game.  Keep it up and good luck!
  7. Tiger on the Range with ProTracer

    Funny, how many times I have heard "Pro's don't just stand and reload and pound balls..."  "Pro's go through their routine on every shot..." "Pro's always have some sort of alignment aid out...".   Obviously they don't.  The best pro of them all is standing there reloading ball after ball doing none of the "Pro's only...". Now, he's 1 or 2 best all time, so yes he can do that and be fine.  But that's not the point.
  8. Trackman, Is that really accurate?

    This is a screen shot from a Trackman session with Poulter as seen in this video: In the red circle it displays, in yards, how far away the ball ways when Trackman was last able to track it.  253.9 yards away in this case.  Definitely more than 4-6 ft.
  9. 50 yds n in .... 2 strokes

    Hit 3 wood instead of driver off the tee.  That'll leave you 70 yards out.
  10. Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Can't believe everything you read on the internet.  Actually have to do some homework of your own. Euro Tour wasn't around when Jack started so only 10 of Jack's wins count as Euro wins as well.
  11. Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    If you click on the link I include in my first post you will see the list of Tiger's 40 Euro wins.  Straight from the Euro Tour website.  You will see 31 WGC/Majors listed.  These are co-sanctioned events by both tours so both tours list them in their tour win totals.
  12. Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Not really as you just pointed out that you tripled counted Tiger's majors (PGA + Euro + Majors).  So take another 14 off Tiger.  And it's back to Jack. I don't care who it is.  You just insist that the numbers don't lie.  So it's Jack.  As the numbers don't care how old someone is or who qualified for what and when.  The numbers are the numbers.   And they are the numbers you provided for your argument.  You can go ahead and try and rejustify them after they are proven inaccuarte but that seems rather folly doesn't it?
  13. Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Massive problem is that you didn't check your work.  The Euro tour wins in effect double count all of Tiger's WGC's & Majors. Sooooo......if you want to take away 31 of those Euro tour wins then by your own argument parameters, Jack is the greatest. As you said, the numbers don't lie.
  14. Do you balance your golf balls?

    One question for you, when you use the balancer and mark the line.  Have you taken the ball out, spun it around randomly and then rebalanced it.  If so, did it come back to exactly the same line you marked before?  I ask not because I am not a believer, I am not in either corner, yet.  But it seems like a simple test to do with multiple balls multiple times to see if there is something to it or not.  If the balancer doesn't return the ball to that same line every time then to me, it's a falacy. If it does come back then I am going to have to think about this some more...
  15. Nunchuk xi iron shafts review.....

    How was the pricing in comparison to other iron shafts? As for issues with the driver shaft, I find that some people didn't follow the recommedations of the inventor and hence didn't get the best performance out of the shaft.  For instance, the inventor states that the optimum length for the driver shaft is 43.5 or 44" and definitely not over 44.5".  Shorter for a wood.  I see a lot of people playing it at their normal 45.5 or even more and they are surprised when they don't get the results they expect. At the same time, it's not for everyone.  It did great things for me though.  I have mine at 44" and my 3 wood at 42.5".
