I enjoyed that Reed and BAD were in the lead after 36 - must've really torqued off the old crotchety types.

Fun tourney.  BAD's putter got hot and he did better out of the rough than most.  Solid major win.  Good for him.  I like that he's trying to think through the approach to the game.  Happy that he's very slightly marginally starting to get a little quicker at it.  Almost there.

Kid still needs some coaching in his interviews - He doesn't need to prove himself in those, just thank the team and let your wins speak for themselves....

If you're gonna be long, you better be accurate.  It's pretty amazing what the long hitters in the game are accomplishing with needing a tighter distribution.

I'm pretty sure I'd rather be 150 from the fairway rather than 80 from 3-6 inch rough.  That takes some serious (insert whatever here) to make that tradeoff flip to the rough.

Yeah, no Tiger or other real stars to pull in viewers and up against football - tough sell.

To be honest if I were a fan of any other NFL team besides the Jets, I probably would have switched back and forth.  I'm also not a fantasy person but there's a ton who are who won't be watching golf when they have their fantasy team to worry about or bets to make.

Not a good long term trend.

 

Hopefully next year will be back to June and the trend will move back up.

If he wins I’m gonna enjoy those salty tears of yours.  If he doesn’t, so be it.  I don’t hold 7 year grudges on young athletes who display a little overconfidence, even if it comes out as cocky.

Who's holding a grudge?....not me.....good nicknames last a lifetime.

They also made it extremely difficult to watch/find the first days. I didn't get to watch a single minute live, and didn't care to jump trhough hoops to do so.

How can anyone look at ratings of really anything for 2020? 2020 is a shit-filled dumpster fire.

If 25 years from now someone says, "Oh yeah, 2020 was a good year", I'm gonna pop them.

I know the CEO of Purell. He could certainly say — and mean — this. 😛

Yes, I should have gone on to say that people who profited this year would probably think of it as a good year... monetarily.  Thinking even Joe Kanfer would have given up profits in exchange for no Covid-19, no pandemic.  Ask him that one day, in a hypothetical way.  I'd be curious about his answer.

    • 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.
