Be careful what you ask for, big boy!

This picture reminds me of a joke that I am sure many people here are familiar with. A lady comes running into the pro shop and yells "my friend needs medical help.  She got stung by a bee! And

A lady comes running into the pro shop and yells "my friend needs medical help.  She got stung by a bee! And she is allergic to bee stings!"  The pro asks "where?"  And the lady replies between hole #1 and hole #2!  The pro says "well her stance must've been too wide."

Mvmac... Looks like she needs to get the 'S' bend out of her lower back, and improve her stance by hunching over more to round her back, wouldn't you say?

Dunno... I think we need a face on shot to truly examine her.  I mean her SWING... yeah.

I am always surprised that golf mag puts out photos like this.  The Body Issue by ESPN is one thing--at least there is a theme of admiration of the fit athlete.  But this is just a shot up the girl's skirt.

nah, they wear these little compression shorts underneath.  most of the time they are built right in to the skirt.  almost like a skort.

With the current state of the LPGA having trouble with sponsors, ratings and attendance at tournaments recently, it in no way surprises me that they would encourage any sort of attention they can bring to their tour and athletes.  Having been around the LPGA tour events and met some of the golfers, I think it is a great thing to bring more publicity and a wider audience base to a great sport that deserves more attention.

    • Pretty hard for settings that are around infinity for the most part to be out of focus. Time for a new TV.  
    • Jack Nicklaus has small hands and uses an interlocking grip.  Give it a try and see what you think.
    • Sandbox in the mornings might end up being a good thing. I’ve read some comments from people on the internet that say it’s a good way to warm up and get a feel for the conditions before you play.
    • I can't thank you guys enough, this looks great!  (I hope this is the proper use of the multiple dancing  banana)
    • Hands aren't tiny, but with wrist line to middle finger tip being just under 7.5 inches and my middle finger coming in at 3 inches long, my hand is mostly palm. I've tried to replicate things like this but I just can't keep my fingers consistently wrapped around the grip, especially the pinky and especially when trying to have the fingers perpendicular to the grip along the 'palmar digital crease' as written in that thread. That's with a standard grip with no extra wraps. I feel like the grip moves in my hand and I tend to get weird skinny callouses on the blue lines here. This may be more that my hand doesn't like cord, but still. If you numbered the segments 1 to 3 with 1 being by the finger tip, I feel like my hand is more comfortable when the grip is aligned diagonally in lead hand, resting on the pinky on segment 3 (slash the crease below) and resting on the index on segment 2 (slash the crease below). I also know that just because it's comfortable doesn't mean it's functionally right. When I do manage to execute a full swing without feeling the club moving in my hand it obviously feels insanely crisp and solid in comparison to other swings when it moves. I just bought a full set of Undersize Tour Wrap Microsuede to test out a handful on clubs, before I regrip all 13, but I figured I'd run these thoughts past TST. I'm going to try to share a video taking my grip later today or tomorrow morning.
