I was just about to post this. BD just a total douchebag. His science is complete OCD BS. His calculations regarding his shots are nonsense and have nothing to do with his outcomes.

Playing partners should penalize him.

Can they?

The Tour would probably wimp out but if I was a major winner like JT I would.

Is there a site we can all send this video?  Maybe a huge intrusion of emails with this attached video will get some attention.

Because of him, I learned Twitter has a 2:20 time limit for videos. I did not know that. 140 seconds. 140 used to be its character limit. Of course he tests Twitter's video time limit.

This is a good write-up that illustrates what it may take since the PGA is s not going to do anything on its own.

And every forum that highlights the issue helps.

This might be an occasion where some crowd heckling might be justified. If you were in the gallery it would be pretty hard to keep you thoughts to yourself.

What a pig.

That might give him a reason to start all over again. The Tour really needs to do something, but they probably won't. This is just pure selfishness.

Make sure you mean the PGA Tour, a for profit business which masquerades as a 501c3. Their only interest is self-interest. Mega bonuses for their execs and miilions for players and agents. They'll fix NOTHING!

I've played par 3s, walking, faster than he can MISS a putt. I just don't get it. Do we need to boycott watching them until they do something about it?

    • That may be true, but the average amateur is unlikely to be better than 45% from a 140 yards.  And the pro can probably hit the same club or at worst one iron longer from the 200 yards in.  Most amateurs are hitting like an 8 iron or so from 140 and the pro can probably manage with a 7 iron from 200.  The pro is definitely better with a 7 iron than an amateur with an 8 iron. The reason the pro is better from 140 than 200 is probably because they are hitting a PW rather than say a 7 iron
    • You see this in other sports.   Anybody can coach great talent but it takes a good coach to get the best out of each and every player.
    • I may be a bit unfair to these coaches so I’ll admit that up front. But what I tend to believe is that many of these coaches that ‘got their name in the lights’ really lucked into it for the most part. They’ve taught hundreds of people before and nobody knew who they were. Now that definitely doesn’t define their level of quality. Not at all. But when a coach happens to score a player who is super talented and has the ‘it’ factor I can’t help believe that player was going to make waves regardless of his coach. Hank Haney got the majority of his notoriety from coaching Tiger. So did Sean Foley as did McCormick from Spieth. From the years of being on this thread I firmly believe Erik is every bit as good and better (Hank Haney) than these guys. I will agree that McCormick is a good coach as I’ve been told this by respectable people who are in the know. I just don’t think he’s anything so special that Spieth needs to remain with him.  At least not now. He needs renovation, not tweaking. I’d never heard of him before Spieth came to the stage and now he’s on commercials and pumps out dvd’s as an all time best instructor.  I think the talent of these golfers played a much bigger role in their success than the coaching they received from these guys. Just my opinion.
    • You know what I'm talking about.  That hole that eats your lunch every time you face it.  It may not even be a tough hole, but for some reason you can't seem to score well.   Mine is the opening hole on the Gold Course at Martin County Golf and Country Club.  It's a long par 5 dogleg left.  There's water halfway down, huge greenside bunkers, and several well-placed trees to punish any attempt at cutting the corner off the tee.  The rough slopes away steeply the whole way down the right side, often kicking your ball into the woods.  A bogey is my standard score.  I feel like I'm automatically going to be down a stroke right out of the gate. I've been playing that course since I was 12.  I'm 42 now.  Today, I reached the green in two for the first time in my life, then made birdie.  I couldn't believe it! Below are some short vids of me on my way to finally conquering this beast.  I'd love to hear about your trials with your nemesis hole.   And then the 3-wood, high draw to the green:
