That's not quite how steroids work,

He said PEDS, not steroids. Not all PEDS are steroids or even steroid based.

Missed the cut at the 2022 Farmer’s Insurance Open. Looks like he’s still got a lot of work to do. 

I think he tweaked his back on one of his super mega swings yesterday. Seemed like he was spinning out (more than his normal spin out) almost every driver swing after to protect his back. Had to have had some effect.

I think it's his wrist.

His left wrist was hurting too.

Hmm. Was watching it on mute so couldn't tell. All I could see was that he put his left hand against his back after a swing and then swung with what seemed like protective moves after.

Maybe he will realize that even pros get a bit out of sequence every now and then and his body can't always support the raging pressure he put on it.

I think Sir Nick kept saying his back, but he kept shaking his wrist in between shots. Both would be troublesome.

He definitely reached for the back on one swing that I saw.

Ok, Buster Douglas 😮

I'm not sure what you mean. .

Buster Douglas was 46-6-1 career. He worked hard, became the world champion. But always hated the 3 boxing ruling bodies. He thought it was a terrible system. He thought the boxers did all the work and everyone else got rich. (Hey, turns out he was right.) After he became champ he refused to work with Don King on a rematch. (Again, can you blame him?)

He went for a huge payday in his next fight vs Evander Holyfield. He got his huge payday and retired. Obviously, he retired even before the fight. He didn't train. Instead he went on talk shows. He appeared on a WWF pay-per-view, which he got well paid for. He gained 15 pounds, all fat. But, he got 25 million bucks for the Holyfield fight, and another reported $20 million for lending his name to the "Punch Out" video game. At that point he said he had generational wealth and didn't want to train anymore. Again, can you blame him? 

DeChambeau didn't retire after winning the US Open. If anything he seems to be working harder than ever. So, I'm not sure what the Buster Douglas reference is?

Buster Douglas rose to the very top and then quit. (Again, I don't blame him. If anything, I respect Buster Douglas. Getting hit in the face for a living sucks.) 

DeChambeau seems like he's still grinding, trying to catch more lightening in a bottle. He's showing no signs of quitting.

The stat on here that's fascinating to me is that he gained 20 yards off the tee, but his scoring average only went down 0.1 shots. 

Before seeing this I would have guessed it would have been more like 0.25 shots.

Rounding the stats from pgatour.com

Year      SG Total    Of the tee       Approach to green            AroundGreen        Green        Rounds
20-21    1.8             1.2                   0.3                                     -0,1                        0,5             68
19-20    1.6             1.0                 -0.1                                      0                           0.9             62
****** He started bulking and training speed ***********

18-19    1.0             0.4                   0.2                                      0                           0.4             66
17-18    1.6             0.6                   0.6                                      0.1                         0.3            78
16-17    0.2             0.4                   0.0                                      0                           -0.2           73

SG Total: is better after bulking. Let's drop 16-17 season, and still he is better after bulking.
Of the tee: He is definitively better, his new speed with some accuracy gain him half a stroke of the tee.  
Approach to green: He lost 0.1 strokes after bulking. 
Around the green: stayed the same. 
Green: He is doing it better after bulking. (of course this is work, nothing to do with bulking)

He declared that driving and putting were the best things in his bag and that he spends a lot of time in those two areas.

For me is easy to see that he is improving year after year, and that bulking/speed trainning brougth him benefits and lowered his scores.

Ahh.. hell hath no fury like the 'I told you so' posse. 😐

After two withdrawals in his last three tournaments, the near future for the big hitter...

 

What about all the guys with injuries who haven’t/aren’t speed training and bulking up?

IDK Kevin.. what about them? I don't know who they are but hope they are not injuring themselves by over exerting themselves in other ways.

IMO BDC is operating at his physical limits which leaves slim or no margin of swing sequence error. While an injury is not inevitable (I was of course joking about the 'I told you so' posse), chances of injury due to lopsided loading go up.

I am aware that I maybe preaching to the choir with you understanding anatomical dynamics much better than me and open to being wrong.

PGA Tour players get injured all the time, is his point. It's a violent game (within your own body).

    • I recall after my session (last one of the day) you asking to hit a few drivers and the guy gave some lame (to me) excuse for not letting you do that.  Oh well.  And I've always found you to be completely truthful and forthcoming in fittings and in giving tips.
    • @Double Mocha Man didn’t say it but I was there helping the fitters. Not in the actual fitting of people but as the pro and “to make the sale.” I was helping a couple people. Some ladies were swinging way too hard and couldn’t make contact to give good readings on trackman. I saw @Double Mocha Manman hit the driver and sure he hit them well but definitely not 40yds better. The fitter also said several things on flight data that was clear he was milking it a bit. I didn’t know they said it was 40yds. I would’ve believed 5-10yds at most. Also we only use flight limited balls at this range so a couple data points were not accurate.  I’m always as honest as I can be. I’ll “make the sale” if I think it’s a good idea or if the person really wants it. I won’t lie about ball flight data or what a club can do. So that environment was hard for me.  It was also weird. I used their driver a couple times towards the end because I hadn’t hit it before. The moment I asked to test it on their trackman, both their monitors both died… maybe they wanted to just pack up and go but it still took them over an hour to leave. Makes me wonder what truly was going on. 
    • Day 209, May 28, 2022 Hit balls for 10 or 12 minutes waiting for a lesson to arrive. Shorter, wider, still just as far.
    • Good one.  Thanks.  But the problem is the guy kept pushing his drivers when (if he looked) he could see I was hitting my own driver just as far or farther.  When I went into the session I told him I was looking for more distance and at least the same accuracy.
    • It's entirely plausible that the fitter is unscrupulous, but it seems more likely to me that there was a misread on one of your baseline shots. The good news is, it sounds like you have a setup that works well for you. Maybe try yelling "boom!" When you hit your current driver to make up some of the yardage.
