Did you see the one yesterday? Not such a good shot, and the ball was barely covered with water. And I noticed he was wearing darker pants...

I must have missed that somehow.
I'll look it up and check it out.

I'll give a free TST towel to the first person who names the winner (full name, not just last name) and the correct winning score in relation to par. Only one entry per person, and your first ent

The most important part of the Masters Tournament has just been decided.  I'm there for the lobster & corn fritters, miso-marinated sea bass and the peach cobbler.

Liver, fava beans and a nice chianti.

They were even 1.5-2 holes behind the 2nd to last group it seemed.

When? They were waiting for the green to clear on 15, 17, and 18 IIRC.

They definitely waited for the green to clear on 15. 

But I think Xander's triple on 16 slowed them down a bit.

I found yesterday pretty boring:

  • It wasn't really that close. Once Hideki got through 12 with the lead, it was going to be really hard for someone to catch him. Xander was within 2 shots after 15 and then immediately put his ball in the water, which ended any sort of intrigue. 
  • Hideki doesn't do much for me. I find him pretty boring to watch, partially because he's really slow.
  • Nobody besides Rahm made any sort of charge. Nobody who was close to Hideki at the beginning of the day broke 70. 

Just a bit of a meh day. That was always in the cards unless Hideki collapsed. It's too bad because every other day was great, and it was setting up for a great leaderboard on Friday night.

xs has got to be disappointed looking back at the triple B he had.

Hm... interesting. I actually though Xander was slower. But I don't remember either of them being too bad. I don't think either took anywhere near as long as Brian Harman. His putting routine with his caddie takes for ever.

Every Masters after 2019 is going to feel like a letdown in comparison. Always fun to watch, but yesterday lacked some of the "magic" that is typical of a Sunday at the Masters. I think Zalatoris making a birdie at 18 on Saturday and being in the final group with Hideki would've been a LOT more fun. The thin crowds and lack of roars also takes a bit away from it. Hopefully next April it's back at 100%.

Had Xander not Norman’d the 16th it would’ve been quite intense. A par would’ve had XS one back with two to go.  But when a leader has a six shot lead at any time....you’re gonna have to have some Faldo luck to overcome that.

I don't consider him slow. His swing is methodical.

At the next tournament there should be a sign posted in the locker room saying, "Remember, your pace on the course is being monitored by the SandTrap.com😁

Interesting stats on what worked at the Masters as far as putting grips.  Obviously not strokes gained putting (as Masters doesn't stat that), but probably some info in these numbers.

Most of strokes gained will be tee to green. Tough to say that there is any correlation there. 

There has been compentant putters with almost every type of grip. Maybe except long putter since they took anchoring away.

Who were the woeful "longs"?  Adam Scott, Bernhardt Langer?  Who else?

Congrats to Hideki - he earned it -  but I think the big story is the young kid in his first Master's outing finishing second. Very well done.

A fine achievement, yes, but the winner is clearly the bigger story.

Here were the longs (I grouped arm lock putters like DeChambeau) in the long category.

Thanks!  Other than DeChambeau, all getting up there in the years...

Another way to look at it, those missing and making the cut by putting grip (excludes anyone over 60 years old to weed out old champions).  Agree with previous comment that strokes gained driving / approaches could be a factor here, but still pretty interesting.  Wish I had strokes gained putting stats to really nail this down.

Doesn't Zalatoris use a long putter with an arm-lock grip?

    • Our school district announced that they are going back to masks. It will be required for anyone under the age of 11, and then strongly recommended for anyone not vaccinated and recommended for anyone vaccinated. My wife (vaccinated) will likely wear one. My son will have to wear one. Honestly, I’m a little relieved. I think it’s the right choice, given the circumstances. There are probably better ways to do it, but they would involve mandating the vaccine for students and staff. I’m betting that’s coming before the start of 2022, but this is good enough in the interim. 
    • Working with my instructor on some simple grip and setup issues. I actually shortened my driver shaft and regripped with the same grip(gotta love pure grips) after testing some things out. I then added a bit of throw in the DS as mentioned in the last post to get some nice high ball flights with lots of carry and no more bottom half strikes. I am really liking the extension post impact, might need to work on the upper center getting a bit more forward but good progress for now. I don't need as much of a Bubba move as @saevel25 pointed out that I had at SV to counter an over rotating clubface. This will be counted as my yearly swing thread post with video. 😉  
    • This drill will help more for that. Try and keep the right elbow from bending more than 90 degrees too.
    • The numbers are ticking up for daily vaxxing, from what I read.  So that’s some good news.   My wife and I can’t wait for the under 12 to be approved.   It drives us crazy that non-vaxxed adults are doing whatever they want with their kids while we mostly keep ours home and limit contact with people until it’s safer. My wife said there was a long line at Walgreens yesterday for people getting the vaccine.   Fingers crossed.   
    • Thanks! I’ll try to drill out I like the idea of feeling pressure on your thumb. I’ve read the article multiple times. I was doing the armpit drill in attempt to stop getting my right arm behind my shirt seam.
