This guy is impressive.

Top 10 on last 7 starts ( I think? ), a win at Doral, and top of the leaderboard today at transitions with 83 percent of fairways, 89 percent of greens and only 13 putts on his first nine holes.

Butch's students are doing well.

Would nto be surprised if he wins the Masters at all

We met him at a charity pro am event last year. He's as nice as bloke as you're likely to come across. Spent hours signing things. Just a nice guy, happy for him today.

I want to say Watney may be the most underrated young guy in golf, but he's already 30 years old. His resume speaks for itself though; four wins, including two this year, all at pretty big-ticket tournaments, plus three solid appearances in majors last year.

I really enjoyed watching him today. He seemed like a class act and a great guy out on the course. Anyone know how tall he is? Maybe it's just me but he looked to be pretty tall..

He's 6 feet 2 inches.

    • It looking more and more like Michigan is going to be going back to masks required.   Nothing official yet but several counties have such a huge uptick that they are recommended that masks be worn for everyone.   MSU and UM have now made requirements for all staff, facility and students be vaccinated.  
    • I’m not a big fan of that drill. It can cause your right elbow to get stuck on your side. I like this drill better and the feel that the right arm widens the backswing. Also, ‘staying connected’ doesn’t really mean that your arms should be glued to your sides. Check this thread out.  
    • Bullshit. You’re trolling. Did you poll any other native Americans or just the ones who would agree with your take? Or maybe your ‘friend’ just agreed with you because they are tired of your endless whining. Stop embarrassing yourself with your ‘silliness’.
    • I’m simply sharing the thoughts and perspective of people who’s opinions on the subject seem to be a lot more relevant than yours and mine. I’m not at all embarrassed because you disagree with them.
