Well I don't think there's any tour player who is going to keep hitting hooks (or blocks) or thin or fat "misses" during a competitive round and then not think about what he did wrong on that swing. We've all seen them immediately make a rehearsal swing and even look at their position at the top etc.. I'm sure there are "cerebral" golfers (Tiger Woods comes to mind with his talk of knowing what his fixes are) and there are more feel oriented golfers who don't "think" their way out of mishits  but rather "feel" their way out of them. Maybe a combination of both.   I'm a golfer who has had to overcome some poor fundamentals that I used as a junior and it has taken a lot of thought and reading and trial and error and evolution to become a more consistent ball striker. I enjoy making minor adjustments (tweaking) to my grip or stance or alignment (slightly open for fades, slightly closed for draws) while I'm playing.  I don't understand the golfer who will keep making the same swing over and over when he is struggling out on the course and follow the popular advice that you shouldn't work on your game while you're out on the course and you should save it for the range.  I hate driving ranges. I don't go near them. I enjoy making the fixes out on the golf course and thinking about them. But then again I am a "thinker." Not everyone is.

    • I have been stuck on both the home course (which I haven't played as much as usual) and on the away courses. I have 8 more to go on the home course and just #14 on the away composite. I had several good opportunities that stopped on the lip, both putting and chipping. It's kind of annoying at this point. On the home front, I am not sure why I can't make any progress on the sheet, as some of those holes left are gettable, particularly #1 (but I don't warm up and am just happy with a par there), but I haven't got them, lol!  It's not like I am suddenly making fewer birdies, but they are not on the holes I need them on.
    • Doh, I saw this after I posted the pic, lol.
    • Scott Fawcett had some interesting bits on the latest How's My Hand Path podcast. He said something like when Bryson was in college or just got on tour, can't remember, he showed him two swings, his regular and something like the one we see now. So it was something he had in his bag, although probably less polished,  way back when. 211. Sick.  
    • Was windy today, and didn't get above 50 F during my round. Played the short course (par 71 cr 63) and shot an 83 (43-40). Hit the ball reasonably well most of the day. Missed all birdie putts, of which I had 4 that I would consider reasonably makeable (within 15 feet or so), including stuffing it to 3.5 ft on 18, only to miss on the low side.
