The last thing I’d want is to have Bryson and BK paired on Sunday for the win. I certainly don’t want either of them to win. And it’s not like an MMA or boxing match. Just a couple of whiners who don’t like each other. I’d much rather see BK have a good lead then lose it spectacularly. I’d also like to see Finau finally win. Of course it’d be epic if Phil was leading on Sunday….but that’s not gonna happen. Spieth…another good one. But BK and Bryson? Meh.

Agreed. The problem with Bryson versus Brooks is that they are both heels to a degree. You need a face to go up against a heel, like Spieth or Rory paired with Patrick Reed in the final group on Sunday.

I had a hard time walking DOWN stairs. It might take 30 seconds. It was awkward AF.

It's certainly a popular cliche these days, but nonetheless I'll say it: I felt that (phantom pains in my legs).

When I first started running my calves and ankles were so screwed up, so sore, so stiff… I had a hard time walking DOWN stairs. It might take 30 seconds. It was awkward AF.

This is why i can't run on concrete. My legs just get destroyed. Knees hurt, calf and thigh muscles will ache for days. Treadmill, not nearly as much.

I know we’re not even through the first day yet and that the guys playing well right now had favorable conditions this morning (softer greens), but the scoring right now makes me wonder a few things:

- is this Torrey is as hard as Torrey back in ‘08?

- are the guys that much better nowadays?

- has equipment had something to do with it?

- a combination of all the above? 

- none of the above?

Im happy we arent talking about a  bunch of pitch and  putt par 5's and driveable  par 4's. I  have a feeling par will be a good score when its  over. Koepka  did  fine. Hope  Bubba watson gets  under  par.

Get a new schtick man.

Hard to do. With the equipment  like  it  is  now. Courses should  be at  least 7800 yards. I did forget to mention Rahm. My num 3 choice.

Phil ain't winning this thing, guys. C'mon now…

Draft Kings is so nice, They are offering me $0.012 for each dollar to exit my bet.  Only a 98.8% loss if I cashed out.  Should I double down?  😜

Helicopter got pretty close to the shore there.

Better stocked than a big box store.

 

Watch out for the monsters in the mist - I saw it in a movie.

We have one like that around here.  It certainly feels like it's 7800 yards from the clubhouse to the practice tee.

I find NBC’s 4D feature underwhelming. There’s a drop in resolution and fps. All those cameras I wonder if it takes away viewing room from fans. 
 

Anyone know why so many pro golfers are endorsed by software companies - supply chain, HR, CRM, ERP, etc… ?

Good greens, perfect weather for golf. Even then -1 gets a tie for 11th. If you add 10mph on to the breeze then par becomes a very good score. I watched about 2 hours early and an hour late on and the quality of golf today was great.

    • Just got around to listening to it. Enjoyed the discussion. It was neat to feel like a fly on the wall listening to two good instructors discuss what makes a good student. I liked the concept of the student's swing being a puzzle, and that as an instructor it is satisfying to solve the puzzle. I also liked the concept of having the student come up with a feel themselves. The discussion on a student's feel for a change shifting was interesting. This is something I struggle with, as in after the initial physical change feels begins to normal, I continue to exaggerate more to keep feeling it, but then it overdoes whatever correction was being made. The only thing that bugged me was the audio quality discrepancy between Mark and Erik, and the "Bank of Now" ads.
    • On a work trip, so no videos, but I do have a club and I am doing some mirror work.   Currently focused on four "feels": 1) left hand over right toes/elbow over right ankle when I'm taking the club back 2) right arm on top of left  3) right shoulder as far away from right ear as possible (an@iacas swing thread feel from way back) 4) my elbows staying closer together   Three and four are closely related, meant to get my right elbow into a "pitch" position instead of the "punch" I've always been in. One and two help keep the club head outside the hands while getting the arms deep.  I'm seeing good progress. I'm keeping the "right arm on top of left" feel all the way to the top of the backswing. It feels to me like im super steep, but the mirror shows I'm almost in line with the shoulder plane, and any quote-unquote steepness is a result of my right arm being in "punch" position at the top. I'm not sure if my right shoulder is way too stiff for external shoulder rotation or if I'm just not used to it. My guess is the former rather than the later.  Anyway, on a good path.
    • Day 583: Range today working on the same items. Started with irons and setup. Worked on Leaning Tower feel. With driver, focused on setup with more knee bend and clearing hips in the backswing. Ball flight was slight pushes with driver. With irons, I had some pulls until I went back to the knee bend setup feel and clear hips. Finished with some chips on the practice green.
    • day 78: Indoor putting due to miserable weather outside.. 
    • I don't think that's a fair take. I think what Bill wrote earlier holds weight. Most radar units require 7' and function best with 8-10'. Look, you are all in on this despite having issues with the previous thing and the price of this being low, despite the 3' thing, despite the fact that it's got a lot of functions for a really low price, and despite the fact that SwingLogic is not exactly known for producing really good hardware in this space. And that's fine, but… I don't think being skeptical, or pointing out potential "issues," should be called "disingenuous." Plus, he didn't say "it won't be accurate," he opined that it wouldn't be. I don't think it will be either, given all of the above. Since you're apparently getting one, we look forward to hearing your feedback. Since you're close by, you're also welcome to bring it to Golf Evolution to test it out against GEARS or the Mevo+ or the FlightScopes.
