Some interesting strategies on display here. Also impressive how close they seemed to get with most of the shots, although that could be editing. David Howell has one of the best mouths on any tour -- just wish his parting shot there about his game wasn't also true.

I'd love to know who thought of that little ditty - long night bending the elbow for sure.

Two comments: I wonder if the Marcel Siem's bun look will catch on. And, McGinty's comment, "European Players - these guys are crap" was priceless.

I want one of the cameras they use to film these commercials.  I've noticed it for GS Warriors commercials also, how many frames a second (is that the right terminology for a video) they can get at such high quality.  Almost looks fake everything moves so slow.  Or maybe its just the settings they're able to use for sports?  Either way, get me one so I can get some swingvision of my own!

One word.  Casio.

That was a good commercial.  The PGA Tour "these guys are good" commercials are so corny and over-produced.  Actually, they stink.  They could learn a thing or two from this commercial.

He says something like, "Good morning boys" and when the pigeon goes down it almost looks like the sun is setting. I don't know who any of these guys are and the banter is somewhat unintelligible. I know it shouldn't be boring, but it is. Sorry.

I think your sarcasm is lost on him, particularly since the OP didn't do a very good job of titling the thread.

Yeah, if I remember correctly, the original thread didn't contain any keywords. In his shoes, I probably would have ignored my sarcastic response.

    • Hope to golf there... someday. 🙂
    • Agree about the 913D3 and D2. 915 and 917 were better, and the TSi2 is way better. 
    • Showing and proving are two different things. This wasn’t a properly designed experiment. Sample size is small and not randomized. It may work for you, but having a properly fit putter could work just as well.

    • I think from the OP all players felt it was in the PA or the opponents would not have pushed for S&D. The question I am struggling with is making a "Reasonable Judgement" on where the ball crossed into the PA to identify where to drop.  In the OP photo the red line (possible path 1) crosses into the PA just a little past the 1st bunker (Not where the red line ends, more like half-way along the red line) and the white line (possible path 2) enters the PA past the 2nd bunker.  It's hard to tell from the diagram but is the difference between the 2 points 30-40-50 yards?  The greater the distance between the two potential areas the less likely to make a "Reasonable Judgement" of where it entered and where to drop.  I understand that without TV Cameras and Forecaddies none of know exactly where our ball may have crossed, we pick a tree, bush or other landmark and use that, but at what point does it become impossible to make a "Reasonable Judgement".  Also, I understand the problem with the word "Reasonable" but that is what I see in Rule 1.3 per below. https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=pe&section=rule&rulenum=1   Adding on, even in the OP they said it would be guess where it went out.
