Ishikawa

He may not win probable not but he's in the last pairing, wow! To be thinking, he missed the cut last week at a pretty average Japan Tour event. So exciting, everyone in Japan talk about it.

Also KT Kim is -6 in T12, very good too!

If Ryo wins, he will be the youngest winner on the PGA Tour since John McDermott in 1911.

Wow, does that count as PGA Tour though because tour did not exist then, technical aly?

Also, he would be only 4th Japan player to win on PGA Tour. (Imada, Maruyama, Aoki).

I think Ishikawa has a decent chance or at least as good as anyone else with the way he is playing.

I wish Phil could step it up a bit..  However,  Firestone's rough and tree line fairways will handcuff Phil something awful..  That is one thing about Firestone South, you need to hit it long and straight.. and straight some more.. It's actually funny at times watching the PGA set up the course when they come to town.. Firestone IF set up to US Open standards, would make it almost impossible for anyone to win with a sub par total.. I personally would LOVE to see a 5 day event using both North and South courses :)

The pro's hate the North course.. It plays harder then the South does.. LOL

It wouldn't count in a professional league with teams, but the PGA Tour seems to have no problem going back and changing history (e.g. what is a major or an official win).

Never in my life have I seen such poor coverage of a #1 golfer that is in the top 5. I know Luke Donald isn't exactly Tiger but they should at least show him more than once every 3 or so holes.

Fowler is looking really good, if he can start getting some of these putts to drop he might be able to get up there with the leaders.  He just barely missed 3 birdie putts in a row.

If he doesn't win soon he'll have to give up the Sunday orange thing. It's getting weird.

Luke is playing? Never would have known. I haven't seen any KT Kim, even through he's tied with McIlroy, who I've seen a lot of.

    • Yet another question about the technology for filming a swing. I read Erik's updated "Filming your Swing" blog post as part of researching my next phone purchase. My current phone, which is on its last legs, was able to record video up to 1080p at up to 120 fps (Pixel 3XL).  However, that camera isn't great at the moment (various reasons unrelated to its specifications) and I'm going to get a new device soon, too.  Its likely successor for me is only able to do 30fps at 1080p, so that won't work for filming a golf swing.  It can do 720p @ 480 fps though (device I'm likely to get is a Galaxy A42).  Will that work for this?  I realize the post says "at least 720p video," but I don't know if I should shoot for better than that (such as if it is expected to be outdated soon).  It also seems odd to me that a camera could do only 30fps at 1080p but 480 fps at 720p, but I know almost nothing about these things. I am also debating getting a separate camera for golf swings if this won't work;  my prior separate-camera is a Canon PowerShot ELPH 110.  I believe it tops out at 720p / 30 fps;  if there's a reasonably priced camera that works for my golf swing filming, I'd be happy to get that and not sweat the camera on the phone. Other than filming my golf swing, my phone is pretty much a communication device and podcast player, so I'm not going higher end except if doing so is the most effective way to get a good camera for my golf swing. (Apologies if this should have been a separate thread, but I figured it was on-topic here and I didn't think there was another forum than Member Swings where this would be an appropriate top-level post)
    • Day 127: Played 18 this morning. Tried to simplify the mechanics of my priority piece (which is two things) into a feel but didn’t work great, so just settled on on of them after a few holes. Played okay except for a dumb triple bogey on #12.
    • I got my first round in. I haven't used Game Golf in so long, I got out of the habit of tagging. Missed a few shots on the course, though it was pretty easy to edit in on my computer. Like @iacas, I also felt the editor was just okay. I didn't have an issue with the map size, but I found scrolling up and down a lot a bit tedious. I had to mess around with adding shots and penalties, though, so I had to spend more time editing off the map. The penalty functions weren't very intuitive. They seem to add an additional "dead shot" (does not appear to track the distance for your stats) for counting purposes as well as a penalty stroke. The lost ball one makes sense, as it gives you a marker with an X on it so you can mark off where you hit the ball that was lost, then your next shot is from where you played your last stroke to where you play your next one. But the drop ball function seems to work the exact same way, which doesn't make sense. If I hit into a penalty area I'm likely not taking S&D, so in order to make it work score-wise, I ended up just deleting the original tracked shot. I don't know if I'm doing that correctly. I didn't like tagging on my belt the way I used Game Golf. As Erik mentioned, the vibration is subtle and it doesn't beep. I often didn't know if it registered. Also the Game Golf unit was angled so you can tag the club hanging down at your side naturally. Tagging the Shot Scope requires bringing the club perpendicular to the ground. It's awkward and I almost hit a playing partner today while tagging a putt because he was walking past me and didn't expect me to bring the club up like that. Next time I'm going to try wearing the unit on my left like I do my Garmin and tagging by bringing the unit to the club. I might even stop using the Garmin if the GPS on the H4 is good enough. Didn't get a chance to compare today because I forgot my Garmin. I didn't know there was a pin marker function. I'm going to have to try that next time. So far I like the data it presents. It seems more detailed than Game Golf. I'll form a more complete opinion of it as I play more rounds.
    • I realize this got no traction initially. But for anyone interested, SwingLogic will be dropping this for pre-orders early in the week. No idea what the timeline is for delivery though. I plan to give it a shot. If it turns out to be comparable to the Mevo or R10, I'd imagine it'll do really well. 
    • Day 582: Worked a bit on another piece of having my upper center move toward the target in transition. I call it the Leaning Tower of Pisa feel. It is more for the irons. For driver, it doesn’t need to be as pronounced. Videos the practice.
