Tiger - His accomplishments speak for itself. Still rooting for him to catch Jack

IK Kim - Yes she missed a 1-footer, but she showed a lot of class and kept her head up even after the loss. She's cute too...

Yani Tseng - My wife is Taiwanese so she and I cheer for her.


Gary McCord - His inability to STFU during his commentary and his stupid mustache puts him at the top of my list

Phil - When I started playing and watching golf, I couldn't stand listening to Phil because he sounds like he's trying to sell something to you even if it was at a press conference.

Rory Sabbatini - He's a douche...

Mic, not Mac.

I am pretty sure the pronunciation has to do with what letter follows the "c."  Nothing more, nothing less.  Micilroy just sounds odd, macilroy sounds right.  Compare it to McIntyre.  That is also pronounced with a "mac" and would sound funny with a "mic" ... I don't think it's a coincidence.

Anyway ...

I like to watch:

Rory McIlroy (not because he's a good golfer, just because I like how he pronounces his name)

Nick Watney (hometown guy)

Graeme McDowell

There really isn't anybody I dislike.  I pretty much always root for everybody except the leader because I'm always hoping for drama.

I don't follow the tour players much at all but from what I've seen pop up in the news...  Mickelson seems like a little bit of a spaz but in a friendly funny way.  Garcia and Bubba Watson sound like pretty big tools.

Tiger Woods - I enjoy watching myself on film from time to time

Rory Mc (can never spell his last name)

Phil Mickelson - Phil the thrill

Least Favorite:

Henrik Stenson - Ever since that time he took of his clothes...

John Daly - Disgrace to golf

The baby walrus - Another disgrace to golf. The guy is fat as f*ck and doesn't even try half the time.. yet some how shoots good. All in all, he's disgusting to watch.

Tiger- Reminds me of myself. B-) Always fun to watch.

Dufner- Love his style, or lack thereof.

Dustin Johnson- Likeable guy

Least Favorites:

SERGIO- Takes the cake easily on this one. Can't stand the guy.

John Daly- Was given a gift and seems to take it for granted. He just gets under my skin. Seems to disrespect the game to me.

Miguel Angel Jimenez- I can't justify why I don't like him, and really I don't think that I truly don't like him, I just root against him. Really have no solid reasoning for this one. He just rubs me wrong.

    • Day 71 (10/3/22): A long session with impact pre-set swings. Still struggling to get into the position from a normal address. I was doing fairly well for a while, then went backwards. I can get in the correct positions in the lower body, but often my shoulders are still too level and I get poor contact. Tonight I worked on letting my right shoulder work down and under more, and not so level and across. This fixed contact dramatically, and it looked correct on video, but this was in very short swings at low speed. 
    • Day 208.  I am not sure what possessed me to just do backswing work and not actually hit a ball today.  I had a few minutes and just worked on the tilt drill, checking shoulders and tail at the top of the backswing.  There was a ball I set up to, and I was on the golf mat, but I didn't actually hit one today. 
    • Great thread here. The subject of quitting hits close to home for me. I’m 63 and my game has been up and down over the last 10 years. I have played most of my golf over the last 10 years at the beach (Md) where I had to meet people to play. I was lucky and found a group that needed a 4th person. As the years went on they added a 2nd 4 some and we swapped who we played with. Then a 3rd 4some and now we had many different personalities and talent levels. One of the newer guys was a 1 hdcp from the blues while everyone else was 8-14 from whites.  This changed our group and playing wasn’t as much fun for many of the group including myself. I retired this year and joined a club here in my home state (Pa). The differences from the flat courses at beach to the hills and uneven ground here in Pa was a game changer. My hdcp fell almost 4 strokes from where it was. Depressing. I tried everything from clubs, lessons and practice. At my age it’s very difficult to make change. I’m struggling to break 90. My swing seems to change halfway thru every round. There’s no consistency at all. Makes me want to quit so often.  Why don’t I? Because I know I’m better then I play. I enjoy just seeing the green grass at the course. I love the challenge. The guys I join up with are super nice people. The exercise from walking is good for me.    Again, great topic. Stick with it. This game is frustrating but good for you  Rod
    • The hole-in-one with this perspective. My best round for the last five years was an even par 71 where I choked on the 18th hole to blow breaking par. Five weeks ago I finally broke par with- you guessed it- a 68. Would I trade that 68 for a hole-in-one - no. But now that I have it, I want a hole-in-one.  The other thing I would say is this- how many times has someone asked you if you ever had a hole-in-one versus how times have you been asked, “what’s your best score ever?”
    • Haven't seen your swing, so this may or may not be your issue. But this video might be applicable. TLDR: get in the slot and close the face, either bowing the front wrist or cupping the back or both. If you're shallowing and swinging square or in to out and but not getting the face closed you'll hit block fades or block slices. If you're hitting slices that start on target then go right then you're swinging significantly out to in. Which means, more or less, you're not getting in the slot even if you're shallowing the club. Nothing prevents you from rotating the shoulders from the top and getting outside the ball with a shallow club, though it's less common than doing it with a steep one.
