The LD champion is a string bean.

The LD champion isn't a golfer. He is a long driver. When's the last time the LD guy had to walk 72 holes of varying terrain in trying conditions while under intense mental scrutiny the entire time, or had to hit a ball out of incredibly thick rough, etc.? Hasn't happened yet.

Fitness isn't just about speed.

Yea your right. My remark had nothing to do with those concerns. My point was in reference to the previous poster stating he was on roids. The man obviously strenghtened his upper body and core, whether it was due to roids isnt the issue. My comment was that if he were to be juicing for distance simply look at the LD player.

LD players are super flexible, have you seen how much shoulder turn jamie sladowski(sorry if I spelled it wrong) gets?

And I doubt that's a very consistent swing either.

If he did, he is downright foolish. I dont see why he would need it, unless he thought his strength pre roids wasnt going to help him get to the next level....even if he did do it,,what the hell would it do for him? The LD champion is a string bean.

I agree, it would have been foolish. But tiger has recently shown he doesn't always make the best decisions.

What would it do for him? Like i said, some kinds of steroids and HGH help rebuild ligaments and tissues. Tiger was being treated for torn ligaments in his knee by galea, who provided other athletes with HGH. All i am saying is it is a real possibility Dr. Galea gave him HGH as well as the plasma treatment to heal his knee.

LOL he got bigger because he is narrcacistic and wants to pull hot chicks. The guy is upset because his calfs are too small....his calfs...too small...lmao it had nothing to do with golf fellas as he was more dominant and longer when skinny. And to the idea that he was trying to prevent injury well if you add weight to a frame with small bones like he clearly has then you are causing more damage, not preventing it. Notice his injuries became prevalent around the same time.

Any treatment for the supposed knee recovery is not within the time frame in question. The earl;y 2000's is when all the drastic changes occured.

    • Nobody disagrees that mechanics matter. You even said the swing doesn’t change that much. With that being said, I think practicing long irons along with short irons is a better plan to develop a solid game. And nobody is saying your plan sucks. I’m saying if I were to teach a group of beginners I wouldn’t just pull out a sand wedge and ignore the driver and long irons.
    • Yes, I do.  I'm fairly well off. I've taken lessons from a PGA Tour Player, a PGA Master Professional, a PGA pro, a club pro, the number one golf school in the country, a teaching pro, a Tour coach, a Top 50 Instructor, a Best in State instructor, and finally my current guru.  I ditched them all because I wanted to understand how to swing the club, properly. So I found an instructor whose philosophy I agree with and said, "I will only use you as my instructor. No one else."  My current instructor is great. He played the Tour and is retired from competition. He asked me my goals and looked at my swing. His assessment was "your scores are ok but ... you'll never be any good because you just don't have a swing that repeats. And to create a swing that repeats, you have to ditch that shit you're doing now." So I did.  The goal was to a) make solid contact, b) be able to compress the ball, and c) repeat some predictable shot path.  So I hit thousands of SW shots. Still do. Just to find the face of the club at impact. I've worked on rebuilding my swing over the last 2 years and am playing the best, most consistent golf of my life. I reworked the practice plan I use and it's now built on LSW principles. Combined with working on swing mechanics, I have a solid improvement plan. And I'm playing the best I've ever played. I won my flight in the club championship and can still fly a drive 260 yards. (I'm 60 years old.) My point is ... which no one apparently agrees with ... is mechanics matter. I used a SW to build a fundamentally repeatable swing based on solid impact. Because the swing doesn't change that much until you get to the woods. Regardless, this is the approach my instructor designed for me. And it is working. For me. Long story short, I'm very happy with the progress I've made because I have one instructor working with me on one swing philosophy and I have a practice plan (65/25/10) that supports what we are doing.  It is working for me now .. which honestly, is all I care about. If it helps the original poster, great! If not, I'm going to stay on track with my plan and hopefully, by year end, I'll be single digits.
    • Looks like the moderna inc vaccine is entering final testing the end of this month. 30,000 person trial. Very promising! First COVID-19 vaccine tested in US poised for final testing The first COVID-19 vaccine tested in the U.S. revved up people’s immune systems just the way...  
    • I figured it is probably about time I start videoing my putting stroke. I really have no idea what to look for when it comes to putting. The only thing I might see is to try moving my elbows slightly further apart (like 4-5 inches). When it comes to the putting grip, should the putter be running through both lifelines? For quite some time I had the trail hand heel pad as the main point of contact for that hand, but I've recently switched to having the putter run through that hand's lifeline instead. Practice ratios for the near future are going to move towards something like 55/25/20. I really need to work on my putting.     On some other notes: I've been jealous of @billchao's and other similar outdoor net setups for quite some time. I decided on a few purchases to set myself up with a solid area to practice the full swing at home. This will make getting a lot of video so much easier mainly because the range I've been frequenting just isn't conducive to it. This will be great timing for it as well since I'll be able to get a ton of reps / practice in after the Chautauqua event with @iacas. Upgrading from my mixed 710 AP1 / 712 AP2 set to some 716 AP2's. I essentially paid nothing for them after getting rid of these two iron sets.
    • Day 217 Kept working on the hip rotation with some 9-3 swings with LW/SW. Decided today was the day to see how it translates to a longer club. Used 3W because I'm afraid to hit driver off the mat in my yard. Hit 15 balls and used the Mevo get some ball flight data. No impact tape, but didn't get any extreme toe or heel vibrations/feels in my hands. Contact was pretty solid, hit 2 balls a touch thin, and 2 balls a touch fat. Start line was good for 12/15, 2 balls were pulled and started too far left, 1 ball was a push. Swing speed, ball speed, carry, and spin were in the ballpark for what I expect, so overall pretty happy with progress.
