The Tyrell Hatton Club Toss

I don't get it. Is he tossing the club because he hit a good shot? That's what I would think with the first tweet comparing it to a MLB bat flip, but based on the second tweet, he's tossing his club because he hit a poor shot. In that case, pfft. I'll show you what a real club toss looks like.

Yeah this. If I toss a club...it’s gone.

He's a maniac, and a great watch. It will probably get a little tiring at some point, but hearing him complain about how bad he is at golf when he's winning a tournament is hilarious. Plus, it's always possible he'll explode and light himself on fire.

Best technique in the game.

Arnold Palmer said the bets golf advice he ever got was from his father on the golf grip. The second best advice he ever got was form Tommy Bolt who told him to always throw his club down the fairway so he can pick it up on his way towards the green.

The problem with his technique is you never throw your club end over end because if it lands weird it will snap the shaft. You need to throw it low to the ground and spinning like the rotors of a helicopter, less chance of breaking it that way. 

Unless, of course, if you want to break it, at which point I suggest an over the knee maneuver...very satisfying. I "broke up" with a 64° wedge that way once. Best thing I ever did for my short game.

So hitting a rock solid object at 100mph won’t snap the shaft but a toss will? That would take one hell of a toss no? 😃

I speak from experience, unfortunately. 😖

You don't hit the ball with the middle of the shaft.

Well, you're not supposed to, anyway. Given your proclivity for hitting the extension of the shaft, maybe you're less clear on this point…?

    • What?  I thought you were going to continue the challenge of playing each month.
    • Well, I am glad I can confirm my sleep efficiency is good. I scored a 91% with my Oura Ring and a 95% with the Whoop. Both show over 1-1.5 hours of deep sleep over a total of 7 hours of sleep. 
    • For me, the bottom changes. I don't play on a perfectly flat surface , like a range mat. The course is rolling terrain. Up hill, down hill, side hill, grass height...effects where the club bottoms, sometimes closer to the lead foot, sometimes closer to the rear foot.  I can hit them thin in any position if I don't adjust for that.  
    • I'm 67. I walk and push. I don't listen to music on the course. I get my hour of music daily at home. I don't need the added hassle. Most folks who I am paired with, who do play music, ask if I mind. I always answer no, I don't mind. It's always low.  Crazy thing...9 out of 10 times...they stream the late 60's/early 70's hits of my youth. Often I get offered a hit. lol Growing up in my house, my 33 year old son introduced me to everything from Jack Johnson to Lamb of God. We both play music. There isn't much out there that will offend me. I also don't want to be that old curmudgeon who screams at clouds. I play enough, I see many of these folks multiple times a season.  Its great to see the number of younger golfers on the course these days. Maybe some will stay long after the zombie apocalypse eases. Stay safe and healthy
    • Played Friday with two buddies.  They need a cart so it was cold.  Despite the marginal weather (40 degrees, 10 mph and overcast), we had a decent time.  We teed off at 9:30 as there was no frost and beat the mob.  Had to skip a hole to get around a slothful foursome who refused to recognize reality.  Shot a 79 (9.9 differential if we were in season - bogey for the unplayed hole), which I consider a good round considering the very soggy course This could be my last round of 2020.  The days end early, with sunset at 5:03 pm right now.  Add frost delays in the morning and the time window for playing 18 holes on a jammed course has become very small.
