Blues vs Kings in the second round!  If the Blues can keep up the defensive pressure I'll go out on a limb and predict they win in 5.  Kings have great defense too so 1 or 2 goals might be enough to win any of these games.

I'm a huge Wings fan but to be honest I don't even care that they're already out... They weren't on top of their game at all and didn't deserve to beat Nashville.

It's really great to see some new blood advancing this year... All the usual, top-teams are pretty much already down and out. I'm hoping to see Los Angeles and Philly in the Finals. Hope LA takes the Cup.

I am a Caps fan and am quite happy with the results last night.  I am most happy with the coaching of Dale Hunter.  Took a lot of guts to basically sit Ovechkin and become a defensive team.   Not sure it will take them more than one more round in the playoffs, but... who knows... I hate to admit it but I think folks may have figure Ovie out... He is a great talent but he needs others around him to step up and take some of the focus off of him to allow him some freedom to perform.

Lets go Caps....

Congrats to the Capitals. They looked like the better team the whole last game. The B's couldn't get the puck out of their own end. The Caps were more aggressive at getting to the puck. They deserved the win. Best of luck. I am embarrassed by all the racist tweets too. Boston is not like that. I've read that a lot of the tweets were not from Boston, but still I am disappointed. I hope someday we can move beyond crap like that.

kinda surprised how the blues are getting worked by LA in this series. granted there's still a period to go here in game 3, but LA is showing no signs of letting up.

Welp, with Giroux out for next game, Philly is gonna have to work their asses off tomorrow night. Hopefully Bryz will keep playing well, and hopefully Lavy will send Carle packing, since two of those goals last night were directly his fault.

That's awesome! Love it. Rangers / Caps game 7 should be a good one. Gotta admit, at this point I don't care who wins as long as it's a good game. Would love to see the Kings win the Cup.

    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.  
    • I will be competing in a 4-club tournament in a few weeks. I'm leaning toward the following choices: 3-wood -- I usually hit it about 215 but I'm hoping to choke down and swing easier to hit it under 200 6-iron -- for all shots 90 yards to 160 sand wedge -- for all shots under 90 yards  putter -- I don't think I could putt with anything else. I personally think this should be required in order to protect the greens, but that is not the case.  Any thoughts on different or better choices?   
    • Day 510: Did some weight/pressure shot drills in my office at work without a club. Did more takeaway/backswing work at home, and hit some foam balls at slow speed incorporating backswing and weight/pressure shift elements.
