Note to Media: Knee-Height Drops Make Sense!

We're in that special hell of rules controversies with the implementation of the new Rules of Golf. There have been some growing pains with the new rules, and that has allowed the golf media to tee off on its favorite target, the USGA. Which, to be fair, can make itself an easy target: https://www.golfdigest.com/story/despite-harsh-words-from-some-tour-pros-usga-pleased-with-roll-out-of-new-rules-of-golf. That aside, I wanted to talk about the "controversy" about the knee-height drop

Welcome and First Mistake

Welcome to my blog. I've decided to do something a little bit different from a normal golf blog by focusing a bit more on the Rules of Golf. The impetus behind this blog is that I volunteered to be the Rules Chairman for my men's club this fall. Now, I am of fairly sound mind, but volunteering to do that is probably a bit crazy. It is fair to ask why I volunteered. Well, I've been interested in the Rules of Golf since I started playing golf seriously. I never really had them introduced to m

    • Want to say this was very helpful!  I got the laser and worked with it to determine my aim issues and find out I'm seeing everything as left when it's actually right.  I also realize I'm a left eye dominant right hand putter and go out and buy a no offset putter and change my setup to make sure the putter is pointed to where I think it is.   Go out and play Saturday and sure enough my putting is way more accurate than its ever been!
    • Tier 1: Grip the club properly Tricky one. I struggled with my grip until I adopted a reverse overlap with all of the fingers on my right/lower hand on the grip. Before I had the right pinky overlap, now its the left index finger. Much easier to get the grip in the base of the fingers and get the knuckles right. Tier 2: Learn what "start line" and curve your ball has on any given shot. I think I know what this means... I learned to hit a natural hook/draw. Aim slight
    • My father in law gave me his machine that pumps cold water around his knee from a previous knee replacement. That does the trick quite nicely.
    • Good luck and be diligent with the PT. And ice is your friend. Even if you do stuff around the house, a little ice time will speed recovery.
    • Quick update... I had a cortisone shot in my knee three weeks ago. Hurt like hell for a while, but definitely helped once it soaked in. I started PT last week and it seems be helping. I have not tried swinging a club yet, but then again, I don't need to for quite some time. Stupid winter. 😒
