He certainly has the right attitude.
“It’s not incredibly enjoyable,’’ he said. “But I’ll grind it out. I don’t ever give up. I have no reason to. I’m here.’’

Where have you gone, Jordan Spieth? What happened to the guy who won three major championships before his 22nd birthday, ascended to No. 1 in...

Like him or hate him, I enjoyed seeing JS and JT having it out in the top 10. Really hope  to see him get it back together.

Its like Wolfe and Morikawa. What a great competition that could make.

We're basically never going to have any real rivalries again because there are too many other people who will jump up into the mix.

The days of Jack vs. Arnie or Jack vs. Tom Watson are long gone.

Hard to play at the level Tiger played at for as long as he did.  Everyone seems to think the next young gun to win a major is gonna rattle of 10-12 of them over the next 15 years... it's clearly not that easy.  Once Tiger started to stumble, Rory was "next".  Then Jordan... then JT, now Collin and Wolff and Bryson.  Someday the game of golf will likely see another Tiger, but right now, there's just entirely to much young hungry talent.  But they get hot, then cool off, then get hot again whereas Tiger just... didn't cool off for 12 years or so.

A comment from earlier this year by Hank Haney ..

“I can show you player after player statistically,” Haney said.  “At one time on Tour, he (Spieth) was second in strokes gained tee-to-green. To get back to that number, it would take him at least three years, if it’s even possible.”

Currently, Jordan Spieth is 155th in strokes gained tee to green. Haney suggested that an “incredible” three-year progression might be 100th in strokes gained tee to green at the end of this year, 30th or 40th next year and 10th the following. But Haney said it is just going to take some time.

“You don’t go from 155th like to top 10,” Hank Haney concluded. “It doesn’t happen.  It’s never happened ever.

Will he come back? It feels to me he is reverting to the mean.

It’s sad to see. Hate to see anyone struggle like He has done. Well, no one thought Tiger would return, and he won the Masters last year so anything is possible. Would be neat to see him play well again.

    • I got a new net and mat so I can do some testing with the Mevo this off-season. I want to have a much more accurate understanding of my carry distances. I will hopefully do some work with the driver as well. I will also be able to continue some Evolvr lessons into the spring, and then just do monthly checks throughout the summer with my instructor to make sure I am not regressing with any of the priorities. Second part of the Mevo work is to figure out which 3 of these clubs will make the bag. I plan to also keep a standard 4 iron and will get some numbers on that. I only have 2 wedges after my PW so I have room for three clubs. I’d rather have the versatility up at the top end of the clubs anyway. I’ll try to get some numbers and post them here to make the decision on which 3 clubs I will be keeping in the bag. Lofts are 20, 19, 18 and 15.5.
    • In the US the threat is about 69 deaths per 100,000 population (Johns Hopkins University). Pretty small but expect it would increase some if we just unlocked everything.  I am not in favor of lockdowns, they do more damage than the virus would do.  I am in favor of reasonable (problem is who defines reasonable) restrictions on some activities.  In the specific case of golf, I mentioned what is being done in this area in my first post.  Seems like these are reasonable and not much of an effort for the courses to do. 
    • Employees must not be too happy about the move. Unlike Orlando, golf in Connecticut is extremely poor to non-existent December through March. Hope they bring their indoor golf simulators with them.😉
    • I just use my iPhone. There are adapters for tripods. Others just mount their phone or camera on their bag. Bag height is good because it’s hand height. In a practice session, I will set up either face on or down the line and check camera angles. DTL I will lay a club along my toe line and aim the camera there. Then I film that side. I will do driver and 6 or 7 iron and maybe wedges. Then switch to the other view and repeat. It takes a little practice, but once you’ve done it a few times, it’s easy. Try not to fuss about getting a perfect swing. Ones that feel good or bad actually look pretty similar. You want your Evolvr instructor to see what you have. I will set up, but not film until I’m warm and ready to film the drill or swing. Lastly, trim the video down. I post it to YouTube and just put the link in Evolvr. You don’t have to worry about file size that way. I post as unlisted and full HD.
    • I get it. Didn't go do a fitting. I ordered the clubs with the same specs from my last fitting. Only thing I changed was going from Project X LZ 5.5 to Accura I80 stiff shafts.
