I'm the biggest Jordan Spieth fan but man did he play like sh!t today. He was horrific. Time for some changes in swing coach and caddie. He needs someone else's perspective on his game.

Ya man...me too. It seems like he just can’t simply hit the ball very well some days. Like stinky shots all the time.

I don’t get it

I’m a Spieth fan as well, and I’m also disappointed that he didn’t play well. One of the reasons I root for him is he’s a local guy. I’m from Durham, NC, and he’s from Raleigh. Another reason is he just seems like a good guy to hang out around.

I’m also a Tiger fan, and I was thrilled when I saw he was -2 through four holes and pretty much stayed either there or one under and finished with 68. If he gets on track, I think we’ll see his name on another trophy come Sunday evening.

Really solid start from Bryson.

 

Wait...did he just like lean on his driver to pick up his tee and snap the head off of the shaft?

I think that is exactly what happened. Unreal....

He looked devastated, especially as he was just carrying it around

I really, REALLY can't stand Tiger's penchant for following up big birdies with momentum killing bogeys.

I wish he would just hit 3W stingers down the middle. So tired of him having a shitty lie for his approach.

He’s from Dallas, TX.

So who are you taking about?

That seemed like a very strange decision for DeChambeau to just timidly punch that ball out.

Maybe it was someone else I was told who was from Raleigh. Well, either way, I still like the guy.

Brendon T just hit a drive at a 151 mph ball speed. How the hell does he compete on tour let alone win?

... how do you break a driver, and did that count as being broken in the course of play or is it like when AK was bouncing it on a sprinkler head?

The shaft just failed when he was picking up a tee, so that’s fine he can replace it.

Pretty funny post round interview when BD immediately praised the shaft brand for being able to replace it and perform on the spot...lol. I mean...it just snapped.

    • Save your money and get a good unit. Sounds like you’re serious. The problem is your budget. Unfortunately, better units simply won’t likely fall to within your budget at this point in time. The mevo+ looks promising but the stickers would be a deal breaker for me. My set up is a gc2, computer with FR1 (with all courses), country club elite mat, projector, and hitting screen. I’m sure I’ve left something out. The only problems I have with the gc2 is the fact that it over-rewards low spin shots (like driver) on the carry distance. Otherwise, it’s very accurate. Really the only data points I care about are ball speed and start line; I don’t curve the ball too much generally. If my ball speed and start line are where I want it, I’m pretty happy. Other potential issue I see for it moving forward: it does not have a LED flash like the quad so those have to be replaced after a while (long time but still). That said my foresight guy gets me what I need and has taken care of me. 
    • The Ping G410 Plus sits open at address. My suggestion is to take your grip and hold it straight in front of you with the club face is square, then address the ball. Your push should then become a draw. 
    • Erik already told you what you need to do from a technical standpoint.  I think you're trying too hard and you're getting emotional while you're playing. I can tell from your post. Emotions can help you focus in some sports, but in golf they will absolutely punish you. If you let your emotions get the better of you, they will reinforce the negative and ignore the positive while you are playing. And once that starts you might as well pack it in for the round. You and I have been playing about the same length of time. I'm a 90s golfer. I don't know if I'll ever break into the 80s consistently. It's a goal, but the world won't end if I don't. You've put more time and effort into this than I have. The biggest lesson I learned was to play the game one shot at a time. Forget the last shot that you hit. It's gone. It's not there anymore. You have an entirely new situation in front of you. Look it over, figure out how to best play it, pull the club, go through your pre-shot routine, relax, visualize the successful shot, trust yourself, and swing the club. "What happens if I hit a bad shot?" you say. Laugh if you have to. You're not playing for a $ millions. The shot is gone. You have a new shot. It's the only way to deal with it without getting negative thoughts. Play within your game. Don't try to do what your game doesn't allow you too do.  You also said "an easy 6i shot". Now I don't know if you meant to take an easy swing with the 6i or it was a simple 6i shot. English is vague. If you meant the latter, you assigned a value to the shot. It's just a 6i shot. You either make it or you don't. Saying it's 'easy' and missing it means failure. Having it just be a shot and missing the green means you just missed the green. You have to chip or pitch on. No value to the shot. A former tour pro gave me this advice. And I'll mention, this is one of the most difficult things to do, but it can keep your head clear of negative thoughts through a round. That's all I have to say about this. YMMV.
    • 101, 49/52. Long track, 6100 yds par 71. Wet so no roll.  My long game is weak but what concerns me more is my approach and wedge game let me down today.  
    • Hi Warren,  I have not started working on adding drywall for my garage. Thank you for the tips on adding insulation and soundproofing acoustic panels. I plan to take 1 week off and start doing drywall mid November. I am in Southern California so heating is not an issue. I can use a space heater if needed.  Right now I am leaning toward Skytrak because it seems like it is better for simulator golf games. I don't plan on taking the device to the range. I will checkout the Golf Simulator Forum.
