Man I wish there was a way someone not in the US could watch this show, it sounds like it is pretty decent entertainment. You'd think golf channel would let you stream it off their website. All you can watch are the 2-3 min clips behind the scenes!

Anyway, good luck Russell will keep an eye on your progress!

I'm glad you hung in there to get to show 3. So how hard was it watching Floyd melt down in the bunker? It was awful watching it on tv but must have been really bad in person. It speaks to the pressure that the show must create under those circumstances.

Agreed, congrats on getting to show #3 Russell! I would be willing to bet that almost everyone in this forum has had a meltdown like Floyd did at some point but we didn't do it on tv.  I can't imagine how that must have felt for him.

Great job!  I felt so bad for Floyd.  That was really hard to watch.  I can't imagine what it was like live.

+1 I was shocked that a guy who's been around golf for so long didn't have the composure to step out of the bunker and clear his head before the next shot.  Rushing the next three shots is something I would have likely done but wouldn't expect someone like him to.

Good question. With all the editing that I'm sure goes on, you wonder if guys on the show think wtf? when they see how they're portrayed(sp).

I'm sure the editors do their best to make the show exciting by using the casts most outrageous comments to create a "character".  Each comment on it's own probably isn't a good reflection on their true personality, but as the show progresses you should see trends in their comments which as a whole could be a better indicator of who they really are.

Most reality show participants that were portrayed in a neutral or positive way claim the shows portrayed them accurately.   Those that played the villian or came across in a negative way claim it was creative editing and not a good portrayal of who they are.  In some cases that may be true, but I doubt it.

    • I’m a fan of the M2… always be one of TM’s best heads.  BUT. Doea the other Titleist driver’s hosel adapter fit the TS4 and vice versa??  If it does you can use the proforce in both heads etc…. 
    • Yup. Have to agree. Can't give up 40+ on the road and expect to win. Would have like to see OSU take more chances down the field. Hats off to Michigan though they were simply better today. It's Georgia's national championship to lose now IMO, I don't think there's any offense left in the playoff picture that will challenge Georgia's defense.
    • Too much so, yes. The body is responsible for the AROUND. The arms are responsible for the UP.
    • Figured since I have this, I may as well post it.   Even though it’s not a good video. Can’t get back far enough.    driver swing is quite a bit more flat.  Probably too much sway rather than turn.    But, I’m really working on speed, and this summer I averaged 278 off the tee with driver and hit 61% fairways.     So, I just don’t think it’s my biggest concern.  I do want to be longer, though.      
    • Day 119: Worked on backswing cupped wrist feel and also transition priority piece. Decided to get the feel of head position change (I call it Rory-ing) first, before working on clubface. I will be playing 18 tomorrow and will pay attention to ball flight to see how I need to adjust palmar flexion amount. Also did pitching/chipping drills from covid-19 practice plan days 6/7.
