Continued with rotation drills. Fortunately did this early in the day. As I broke my f'ing big toe this evening 😡.
Dropped a 3/4" sheet of mdf on it doing a project in the garage. Thinking I'll be out of commission for a bit, short of putting and maybe some chipping. Which I guess isn't the worst thing in the world.
Just sucks. Was really looking forward to this week's league. Especially after breaking par on the executive course earlier this weekend. But I'm not gonna push it.
Gonna call my Dr. tomorrow to see if there's anything I should do. Aside from avoid our Mastiff / Cane Corso who's a notorious foot stepper 🤣.
Seeing as their micro sim (club attached sensor) is already fairly accurate, I'd suspect adding a radar component to the mix certainly won't hurt. And I don't see where it says it stops tracking shots after 3 feet. But for people who are space constrained, only requiring 3' in a radar based unit could be a big deal.
As far as "playing" without a ball, that's basically what the prior slx micro sim provided. Where it is more of a video game if one elected to use it without a club. But with real balls, that same sensor was pretty spot on with distance, ball flight, club and ball speed. So, again, adding a radar unit in conjunction with their club based sensor can only improve upon the overall data.
I thought Faldo's comments about the final putt were referring to the fact that it was a fast, downhill putt. I believe he said that you "don't want to overdo it either way, not run it 4 feet past or leave it 6 feet short" or something like that.
Alot of these comments, when you hear them afterwards or think about them, sound sort of stupid, or obvious. Azinger has had dozens of these. I remember an excited Jack Buck calling the baseball playoffs and remarking that some player's hit in the gap would be "at least a triple!" Huh?
I think what Faldo was trying to convey is that if you start to think "just get this close," you run the risk of leaving it well short or being careless with direction. Instead, keep your focus, zero in, and try to make it. Trying to "make it" when it's a downhill, slick putt means that you are, by definition, careful, that you make sure you judge the distance correctly, rather than being "aggressive" with pace. But I don't know. Maybe he was just babbling and being dumb.
It was a great tournament. A friend and I who text throughout final rounds said at the beginning of the round just as Zalatoris teed off "I'll take 7 under."
My predictions were wrong. 🙂 Well, I predicted Mito not win; I thought he would play ok but have his worst round of the tournament, and someone would pass him. My picks were Fitzpatrick and McIlroy. WRONG. I also said "Zalatoris will play well, but putt his way out of it." Nope. His ball striking was pretty bad on several holes.
I was surprised at how many missed greens there were from the last 4 groups on the back 9. At least it seemed that way. But it was a very hard course.
What’s weird about this is the broadcast did say it’s Fitz standard warm up so, I guess pot meet kettle and that doesn’t fit Rapaports narrative. But I agree it it doesn’t jive to place blame on Fitz short warmup.
