Just reading it.

I like the use of words to describe his techniques; start the takeaway with the hands , arms, shoulders and hips in unison, rather than quoting degrees of angle of the right hand second finger metatarsal bone in relation to the direction you are aiming. 

Or start the downswing with the hips. No reference to the metatarsal bone.

or reference to moving pictures in slow motion. It seems there was golf instruction before trackman.

Does his swing resemble a baseball swing? I was always impressed that he seemed come around fairly flat in the downswing, from my view, that worked with a tremendous lag and leg drive through the ball. Seemed to me to be so even in his latter years at Shady Oaks. -Marv

    • Shot 76 last Thursday, but had a bogey on the par 5 12th.  Still don't have one this year, and running out of season...
    • I remember thinking something similar…
    • You must have an incredible hand eye coordination
    • and  While most par 4's I play are not this long, many I play do offer the same types penalties.  I have to agree with @iacas and go for the green knowing that I "may" have to play out a third from a bunker or rough.   For example, today on #11 at the course I was playing I had to decide similarly how to play it.  The hole is guarded on both sides at the front by bunkers and several knobs in the back.  I chose to go 3h instead of laying up as I am reasonably comfortable with where the ball goes and if it doesn't go well, I am okay hitting from green side bunkers.  Risk vs reward - where is the most to be gained?   For me, the hole did not play out as I planned as the 2nd was in heavy rough and the hybrid landed about 40yds short.  PW onto the green for a 2-putt bogie.  Would I play it that way again, why yes.
