I'm not really a fan of putter wells to begin with. I think, though, that putting them on the side means they can interfere with the straps and things on push carts. Or on a driving cart, can get stuck between the two bags. Putting them on the "front" makes sense to me.
No, I haven't heard of the exotics. Yea, I will look for that CB3. I tried pretty much all they had for demos at the golf shop and they were all the same...cantaloupe on a stick; but they were all the latest tech. It would take me a long time to get used to that. I feel like getting used to it would mean just forgetting what it feels like to be in control of my driver and trusting the technology. Which is probably not a bad thing....but I don't really want to make that sacrifice. Getting the feedback from shots is important for me to know what I did right or wrong on the swing. Is that r7 425 a 425cc head? I mean, the 510 is only 330CC...using those giant things at the shop was incredibly different in a bad way(for me.)
Like many things in golf… people are always seeking the "secret" or the quick and easy way to solve things. They latch onto things. They get persuaded into thinking "I've finally found it!" Some get stuck in that phase longer than others.
Whether it's Ben Hogan followers, Mike Austinites, etc. there are pockets of these people all over golf.
I, obviously, prefer 5 Simple Keys®. No "secrets," and it encompasses all the things EVERY good player actually DID, not what one player thinks they did, or others say they did.
Not really. Many of the players broke 100.
And that, as John pointed out, is the U.S. Open course.
Local Qualifiers are played at a regular course set up for regular play. They barely do anything for sectional qualifying… This isn't a U.S. Open course.
I think that if the 20 is a LEGIT 20, he breaks 127 the majority of the time.
I know how bad bad golfers can be, but 126/18 is 7 per hole. For every five, you can make a 9.
There are going to be holes where he makes a nine or a ten, sure, but there are going to be holes where he makes a 3, 4, or 5.
One time. You've also seen him make a birdie, I presume… and probably far more often than you've seen him make a 19.
There aren't 4-5 carts following guys in local qualifying.
That's not how the local qualifying courses are typically set up. They're played pretty much under regular conditions.
