A few guys...

Grahame McDowell - Where do I begin? What a competitor! And does it all while fighting stuff in his swing. I, like him, tend to shut the club at the top so I just love to watch what he does. We have a similar build (my wife likes to make this comment while golf is on), and even both play the same irons. LOL. Just like the guy, he seems like a guy you'd like to have in your foresome.

Dustin Johnson - Dude hits all his clubs a mile while hitting it fairly straight. Plus, he's cool as all hell. He should grab a few majors before he's finished.

Rickie Fowler - For all the wacky outfits, his poorly-fitted cap and his loathsome haircut (not because it's LONG, but it's just f-----in' bad!), he's an old-school shotmaking golfer who plays like the guys from the 50's and 60's. When he starts winning tournaments, he won't stop.

Rory McIlroy - When he gets it going, he is beautiful. Maybe my favorite swing to watch in the world.

I've become a fan of the UK crew this year.  Poulter, G-Mac, Rory...they all have great game and seem to have a lot of fun doing it.

I love Rickie Fowler's game, but man that hair and the crazy clothes

I second this,

I have been watching him this week in Kapalua and he is fun to watch.  Great attitude and great ball striker.  I really like his approach to the game.

I agree with this.  They seem to show their personality more, however there are a number of US players starting to do the same thing.  I think this can only be good for the game and the two tours.  I think I will have to also jump on the band wagon and say that I am becoming a huge Dustin Johnson fan.

It's almost tough for me to say this about an Oklahoma Sooner, but I've started to cheer for Anthony Kim over the past year or so.  I didn't really care for the guy when he made his big impact early on, but he is growing on me a little.  The fact he has had to endure some injury struggles the past year may be the key factor in it, but who knows.  Like I said, it's tough to even admit it. :)  I hope AK has a solid 2011 and beyond because he could be great for the game.

No kidding. It's very impressive to see what Day has been doing in recent major championships, considering that he is only 23 and has already come so far (basically turning pro right out of junior golf, having to play on the Nationwide Tour, and then having an awful rookie season on the PGA Tour in 2008 that provided shades of Ty Tryon).

    • 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.
    • I think it was one part particular camera or shot. It was some vista canyon-y view. 
    • Up to you. I’m charge less but they might give you a small credit.
    • I need to go for a fitting. We have a Club Champion that just opened locally. I can get fit for the wedges there, get my specs, and then order from you. Club Champion's fittings are separate from their club purchases. They're the only Edel dealer in the area.
    • Huh? I’m not seeing that.
