He’s apparently made changes since this, but here’s a swing video of the guy that just shot 57:

 

Wow, that's wild. Made some good changes since then.

Is this meant to be ironic? He shanked that first one somewhere past Juneau.....

He didn't. I know it looks like that, but that's what you get with a super zoomed camera. That's one of the more extreme looking ones I've seen, but… that's not a shank. He hit it good, and didn't have to watch it since it just ended up in the fairway (he made birdie).

Not to downplay the round as a 57 is a 57 and you have to hit the shots....but it seems odd that the tournament was held on a course playing from 6,200 yards at 9,000 ft elevation.  Course shows as 68.8/123.    Seems that course would play like an executive course to these guys.

It's played over 2 courses. The other course is a 1000 yards longer. That's a big difference.

@colin007 Yea, I believe parallax is far worsened by the zoom of the camera. It's a reason pros care a lot about camera positioning when filming the golf swing.

Amazing round, but 57 on a par 70 is the same number under par as 59 on a par 72.

I really wish that explained it for me. It doesn’t really. It still looks like a cold, brilliant shank to me. I mean damn, it literally appears to go 90* right from the flag. And viewpoint A and B? Our viewpoint is between A and B so what does that do? F*** me….frustrating.😂

That's crazy wow, I watched it a half dozen times and even the reaction seemed to verify the shank but ig not

One thing  i have  noticed  is  Justin Thomas seems afraid  of Tiger Woods. When they play together Justin shrinks. 

Same dumb schtick since joining.

Charlie has a tough road ahead of him as far as constant comparisons go. Time will tell if he makes it on Tour or winds up like Kevin Tway playing in Monday Qualifiers. One thing for certain, the media will hound him every step of the way, along with some a-hole moaning about how he's not as good as his dad.

I literally spit out my coffee on that one laughing. Thanks LOL

Fact 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

    • I'm five under the last five times I've played the 15th hole at Whispering Woods. All from the blue tees, and in order… Driver and had about 230 yards in. Hit a hybrid over the back right side of the green. Chipped and made the three-footer for a birdie. This is one of the pins in the fairway. Driver again to the other pin at about 230, hit a hybrid to about 20 feet and two-putted for birdie. Driver just barely pushed, hit the right side of the big vortex swale, bounced right and was on about a 15° upslope right by the cart path (highest pin to the top of the image below). Hit a hybrid over the back left side of the green to the fringe, two-putted for birdie. Driver pulled left a bit with @rwolfe into the trees left, but it bounced back out to the fairway at about 255. Hit a 3W to the front-edge of the green (just short in the fairway). Putted it down to about four feet and made that putt for birdie. Earlier today, hit the longest tee shot in the recent bunch, had 214 to the hole. I was considering 4I or 3I, but @DrizZzY suggested 5I. I hit it hole high in the right rough just a foot off the fringe, chipped it to three feet, and made that putt. This hole as many of you know is NOT easy. That I've had two eagle putts and three eagle chips and have converted all is something in my last five trips to the hole is something I may never repeat. I even said "I'm jinxing myself but I'm four under the last four times I've played 15" to Sculley today. Then hit 5I to it. 😄
