This is right up there with my thoughts on this carnival. He just buries the gas pedal on the PP saga. It was so detailed when he first told the story in the Caddie Banned episode that you could assume he was really close to the story.
If you go to the PM episode around 29:40 he refers to the Aussie boys who want to know why he hates PP so much. He says, "Cause I'm the F-ing caddie!" I literally found it in a few seconds because I was running at the time and just cracking up. The delivery was perfect.
But yes, to sum it up its totally outrageous drama that just goes to the next level of WTF you can't make this up.
This is the first post for me in quite some time. I have not been very active on the site at all. My wife has had a recent cancer scare (all is fine), my father just had a triple bypass, and my brother just had brain surgery. All are doing fine which is great, but I haven’t really touched a club in months. I hope to get back into practicing regularly, and I’m simply writing this down in hopes that it will force me to stick with it.
I hit on the range today and will give myself a C- across-the-board. I didn’t hit any clubs particularly well, but certainly could’ve done worse. As humbling as it was, I had to even remind myself about how to do a Center tourn, as I caught myself swaying much more than I should’ve. After all that work over the past few years, I’m surprised how easy it is to lose some of the basics.
I tipped my teaching pro for the lesson I got today.
I think my pro gives me good value for my time and his.
I also want to make sure that I get "the good stuff". If you don't tip your teaching pro they tend to hold back the extra little secrets that you need to improve....🤪
Here's a video of me practicing from earlier today:
The video is 12 minutes long, and yes, I spend a little time walking over to the mat after starting the video, and away from the mat after "finishing." I hit nine balls during this 12:00.
You may notice a few things:
I check my grip fairly often.
I check the balance in my feet now and then.
I have mirrors in front of me and down the line. I check them relatively often.
This shirt bugs me a little bit in the left shoulder. 😉
It's 1:48 before I hit my first ball.
I walk out to collect balls twice. This is intentional - it lets me process what I've been doing a little.
I exaggerate a few things. Right arm stuff at 3:55 and 4:30, a right foot or thigh thing at 9:50…
The ball is almost irrelevant. I might make a whole swing looking at my hands or in the mirror, and then just hitting the ball.
This is a bit of a grind, but it doesn't mean it's boring or "negative."
You don't grow when you're comfortable.
