I just read the Fowler short mis on 17 cost him an invite to next years Masters and PGA. Hopefully it won’t come back to haunt him. He played well. 

I feel like Rickie will get it back together sooner rather than later.  I mean, if Jordan can lol...

Our Asst. Pro - Larkin Gross just finished 4th in the PGA Professional Championship and will be teeing it up here, as one of the PGA Team of 20.   

Phil is the first AARP Major winner!

On Kiawah Island, S.C., one of golf's seaside gems will host this week's PGA Championship. But on Kiawah, and across the world, golf communities are bracing for the impacts of climate change.

I’m not sure what you’re trying to say. Are you saying intuition = precognition? They’re not the same thing.

I don’t know what someone else bringing up precognition has to do with me.

No your quote perfectly responded to the first quote. I agree with you.

For all the gearheads on this forum read about Phil's driver he put in the bag for Kiawah.  

Driver: Callaway Epic Speed Triple Diamond (6 degrees @5.5 , green dot cog)
Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Black 6 X (47.9 inches)

The left-hander made a change to his bag at the start of last week.

Changing the subject, but here is a quote from a Golf Digest article about Kiawah and the course setup.

Only once in the last decade has a course yielded a higher scoring average than the Ocean Course’s 74.57 when it last held the PGA Championship (only outdone by the borderline setup for the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills). For this year’s PGA Championship the Ocean Course added seven new tee boxes and has the flexibility to stretch to nearly 7,900 yards, which with the coastal winds might as well be equivalent to the distance to the sun. It may not ever play that distance, but regardless, Kerry Haigh, the PGA’s director of championships and wizard of course setups, believes the Ocean Course remains “second to none in terms of challenges.”

I liked how they setup the 3rd hole on Sunday moving the tee forward to make it drivable; but the hole was still a challenge because of the green. Overall, as someone whos has played the OC multiple times and thoroughly enjoys it, I thought the setup was excellent.

We used average player data from Kiawah to showcase the staggering difference between tour players and regular golfers.

This is from the golf subreddit, I think it's an actual photo, unaltered mostly.

On the topic of BDC, Phil's driver configuration seems awfully familiar...if BDC loses a major but can plausibly argue the winner had equipment inspired by him can he claim 0.25 title credit? 😅

Phil was out driving Koepka, so whatever his set up was, it’s working.

Do you think it will work at Torrey Pines (US Open)? Will he even keep it in play?

Phil plays well at Torrey, but Phil is Phil. He could go all squirrelly off the tee.

Not being scared of swinging a 48" driver shaft in competition seems like it was a big contributor to his success.

    • My goodness, you aren't kidding. For those who don't see the article for whatever reason:  there's a list of the top 25 fastest times ever recorded in the women's 1,500 meter freestyle swim.  Katie Ledecky owns spots 1-13, and also spots 15, 17, 18, 22, and 25.   The closest thing to that I can think of offhand is in threes.  Tiger Woods owns the top three season-long strokes gained: approach ever recorded (granted, these have only been recorded in, I believe, the Shotlink era), and at one point (up until a few years ago), Kurt Warner threw the most yards ever in a Super Bowl, but was also in second and third place on that list. 
    • Day 155.  Quarantine practice plan, day 11.  I really like this drill and I plan to incorporate it into my practices on a regular basis.  I took video but it's still on my phone, I will likely put it in the relevant thread tomorrow afternoon. 
    • Day 28: Long day at work, so not much time left for golf practice today. Managed some work on downswing priority piece, hit 10 balls, 7-iron, lots of rehearsals between shots. 
    • Day 65, July 29, 2021: More three-quarters swing work.
    • It is also acceptable to take relief again, if necessary, from the same cart path for the shot now contemplated.  A common example: cart path is near a boundary object (OB fence) on the left. A right-handed player may take relief for a left-handed shot that has them standing on the cart path and the NPCR for the left handed shot is to the right of the cart path. After taking relief, the player may decide to hit a right-handed shot. But, now standing on the cart path for the right-handed shot, may take relief further to the right of the cart path to allow that shot.
