You want to get peoples attention in the United States? Disrupt their sports menu.  Or run out of toilet paper...either one.  This isn't political.  My bracket is no longer relevant.

And when you get to the Pearly Gates, St Peter will tell you it was a perfect bracket.😀

I’m watching “Live From THE PLAYERS” and Brandel says “he [Brooks] was wider off of the golf ball last year, nowhere near as wide this year.”

  • Am I missing something, his arms looks about the same width.
  • the camera isn’t exactly the same, so measuring the distance between his lead hand and hip won’t work....looks close tho.

I’m not trying to be some picky jerk here. I actually want to make sure that I’m not missing something. Especially with wording like “nowhere near as wide this year”

You're not missing anything. Let your eyes be your guide. All you are witnessing is Brandel Chamblee being a clueless jerk! Just because they're on TV doesn't necessarily mean they know more than you do!

Brandel is not a "clueless jerk."

He knows more about the golf swing than most people here (as he should).

I guess that's why he was so successful on the Tour! 

a. That was a long time ago. He's learned a lot since then. He was a player then, it was not his job to learn a lot about the golf swing, only to make his swing good.

b. He won a PGA Tour event, so… yeah, he was pretty damn successful.

I think people attribute far too much to the mental game, as usual.

He got hot, then cooled off. Brooks too. Jordan too. The list goes on.

Jordans cool streak though it working on it's 3rd straight year lol.

He was my favorite player back then.  Don't remind me.  Still, he has some excuse, injuries derailed him.  Jordan isn't injured.

How much do you think DJ knows about a golf swing?

Just because you know something doesn't mean you can do it.

Likewise, just because you can do it, doesn't mean you know how to do it.

I think he knows a lot about his own swing, but not how to apply that to others. He works on his own with his instructor.

You have a point. This brought to mind a vid I saw of Tiger with Butch Harmon when Harmon was his instructor. Tiger said, something like, "Butchie keeps telling me not to go across the line. Hey Butchie, show us your backswing,"  Harmon takes the club back and, of course, he goes across the line. Tiger then looks at the camera with a big smile and says, "See what I mean? Do as I say, not as I do!"

Still, Chamblee seems to step "over the line" a bit too much and take extreme positions. The way I look at things, Johnny Miller could do that. Brandel Chamblee? NO!

Once again, Brandel probably knows much more about the golf swing than Johnny.

No, but he looks like an absolute headcase of a player to caddy for.  Touching towels and all the shenanigans he does.  He has some weird quirks.  He reminds me of a small twitchy dog haha.  I think with his long game game falling apart, it's only gotten worse too.

And just how many majors did Brandel win?

Those you can, do. Those who can't, teach. Some people are better teachers than players. I watched a video filmed probably in the 90's with Gary McCord giving a clinic. My first thought was this guy has never one a Tour event. But then, the dudes in the clinic have never or will never play in a Tour event. I'd take instruction from McCord, or Chamblee.

    • Everybody claims to hate slow play, so why is it I am always stuck behind people who think they are pros. It's quite well known that old people are slow players, but they are slow drivers, so why would anything be any different. I can understand new players being slow, because they have to hit the ball many times to get to the green. For me the worst are women. It's hilarious, just watch what they do. Men will take their shots and walk to their own ball, but women can't do that. They all walk around the course shoulder to shoulder and attend every shot. This means a four ball women's outing takes three times longer than a men's. After all, if they aren't together they have to stop talking, and that won't do. Don't believe me, just watch them ! 
    • Fitting is a good thing for sure. A bit overrated overall though. But for you specifically I think your time and money would be better spent with instruction. With a 30+ hcp you’ll get a pretty rapid improvement at first. You’ll probably make some significant changes to your current swing but nothing at this point that would be significantly affected by tweaking a standard set of steel, stiff shafts.
    • Day 92: Went to the driving range for a pretty bleh session. Really need to focus better next time.
    • Day 149 - May 26, 2020 Full swing work again. This is going to be almost everything that I do. Another interesting day. Went to the range at about 6:30. Fortunately the back end is in the shade. Started off hitting some half swing 7I. Did not go well. Had no feel for the swing, began searching. Hit some 8I. Chipped some drivers. Hit some wedges. More 7I. Almost none good. Some fine, but I knew they were not done "properly." Toward the end, found a feeling when I decided to hit some 5I. Not sure why… but I had the feeling and striped a bunch of 5I in a row. Left on a high note. But not before hitting a bunch of pitches and chips. Longer ones, 30-40 yards.
    • Is anyone experiencing any problems getting tee times at your club? My home club is doing 15-min intervals (used to be 7-mins) so the availability has been cut in half. Since reopening at the beginning of May, I have been having difficulties securing a tee time, both during the week and on the weekends. Weekends are especially bad when we get 90+ tee requests but the club only has 50 available.   It is very frustrating to have to stalk the tee sheet for cancellations...but lots of members just don’t show up or they block their slot to play as single/doubles, and my club is doing nothing about it...
