The New Tappan Zee Bridge

Not crazy about how it was named the Mario Cuomo Bridge (passed in wee hours in secret by his son), but official opening is tomorrow, in my mind, it'll be the new Tappan Zee Bridge. Maybe the Nyack - Tarrytown bridge?   http://www.newnybridge.com/ready-and-waiting-new-bridge-prepared-for-friday-nights-traffic-shift/

Observations from Northern Trust Tuesday

Disparaging remarks from some players on Sean Foley Talk about hotels and points and yawn, boring. No charging stations. Momofuku here too, same as US Open (tennis). Generally, students of the game hover around the short game area. One spectator struck up a conversation w/a player about pitching. Haven't been to a tournament in awhile, radar everywhere. You can park behind Starbucks, walk across the coliseum to the buses (10 minutes, just like the US Open - tennis),

Whenever I see these modified grapes, I buy them

There are the ones that look like chili peppers and the ones that taste like cotton candy are my favorite. These were at Trader Joe's yesterday: They're ok, cotton candy grapes still my favorite. Sugar Crunch has like a "dry" taste to it, it's a little different from your standard variety green grape, sweeter and harder obviously. I'd still buy it again, because you don't see these everyday, but always on the lookout for cotton candy grapes.

Range design for the future

It annoys me when you go to a range and you can't take face on video. It's one thing if the range is full and you can't place your camera because the stall in front of you is occupied. That's fine. It's when ranges build dividers that block an important part of the swing, impact, some build stalls that block nearly everything. It's twenty freaking seventeen, and video is available to the masses, hell, you could even say most people have high speed video available now. In H forking D. No, in 4 f*

Bird up close at Bryce Canyon

People don't listen to the signs, feed the birds anyway. No, he still didn't fly away after I stopped recording. I also recited some Edgar Allen Poe at it, don't think it was appreciated.

Golftec (a bit of a plug) and feel ain't real

Golftec (disclaimer - don't know anyone working there) was something I never looked into, probably confirmation bias or the social media out there about the hard sell to buy lesson packages. After trying out its video setup, the benefits of having both face on and down the line views simultaneously was intriguing, and a screen where you can see yourself live although you still have to manipulate your head to see the screen, VR goggles not available yet but you can bet that will be a thing in the

Reddit rant

Commenting on a post of a before and after video, one redditor asked what was the difference. Apparently he/she saw none. This was the before and after top of backswing positions. And the guy got upvotes.   The place is ADD.

Wow, maybe more and more people are using video

No one at the ranges I go to make use of video, and if they do, they're doing it wrong, I'm one of the rare few who brings a tripod. Looking at the Facebook page of a popular instructor today, and it's the dead of winter, there are tons of people jury rigging whatever they have to practice indoors - school gyms, basements, backyards - from all over the place, US, UK, Canada. They're all using video, some high frame rate, although their angles could be better. So maybe I'm just in an unrepresenta

    • At my home course they do it for you.  They move every set of tees up in the Winter... they get it.  Less hard on the ego that way... 😁
    • I play year round and our course has pretty good drainage. We get wet conditions where they don't allow carts on the fairways and the iron shots are pretty iffy. If you are playing at a distance that makes it no fun to play try going down to the next tee box. That could make the difference. When it gets pretty sloppy I go down one tee box and it makes the course close in distance to when we play in the summer. I only do this on the holes that in the summer are fairly long for me not the shorter
    • Simple rule that worked for me Grip it and Rip it! Then a 1 putt
    • Interesting topic. I appreciate the science of the golf swing. It impresses me the knowledge espoused on this site from the clearly scientific thinkers. That was never my strong point. Not that I don't "get" it, or understand what is being said but I do believe there comes a point where it gets to much. I'm more of a visual learner so that may be part of it. I tend to learn seeing what @iacas or @mvmac are trying to say as opposed to reading a post on it. The great thing about this site is that
    • I don’t mind wind/rain but soft muddy conditions mess with my iron and wedge contact.  Lots of fat or short shots!
