I'll stay out of the political commentary as I am a Canadian, and keep my comments golf related so...100 rounds of golf over four years???? What's the point of being rich and having a powerful job if you're gonna get gypped like that on Golf. Crap, I probably played more rounds that that and I'm piss poor broke LOL.

Hmmm...I wondered what happened.... I guess I really don't care and if my comment spurs a few people to open their eyes and realize that the current government now operates on a ruse to look like they care about crucial issues while removing freedoms and creating dependence on a handful of elitists that think they are smarter that everyone else and think they know what "we" need...

I swear I hate nothing more that to hear a republican and democrat argue. People need to be in power, not bought and paid for politicians.

The President took a weekend and played golf during a week when Congress decided it was a good time to go home and raise more money for their next elections. Because, you know, priorities.

Get over it.

I am a conservative.  I will not make a political post...I don't even know what it means to lose skins on this site.

I will say this: golf is a place to set aside our outside quarrels and disagreements.  In the world of golf, we should needle the bad shots, compliment the good shots, and stomp any cheaters.  We SHAKE HANDS at the end of the match and show respect.  Now, that last sentence is DEFINITELY NOT GEARED TOWARDS POLITICS.

Just my thoughts,

    • Which is why @iacas and TST instructors in general recommend priority pieces. This could really screw someone up who’s hip rotation wasn’t a priority piece or who’s hand/wrists movements were. I vote D-. Not an F purely because of his enthusiasm…lol.
    • For the record and for what it’s worth, I’m not a Xander fan. I just think he’s pretty good. 
    • Maybe. Maybe not. That’s why I said it “could be.” Statistically things aren’t in his favor because, as you mentioned, the field is pretty good. But he’s also pretty good—one of the best statistically-speaking. Sometimes just a little bit of success can spur one on to do more. He looks like he has the talent, so I guess we will just have to wait and see.  Curious: is there something in his game or swing you see that you don’t like? You’d know better than I, for sure. To me, he looks very solid. I didn’t know if maybe you saw something he needs to fix, just based it purely on the numbers, or the fact that you don’t like him and that your dislike of him could have tainted your view of him (even if deserved!). 
    • And I'd wager that within a reasonable version of "launching pad" it won't be. He won a weak, limited-field event. I'm sure it feels great - it's one event every FOUR years instead of majors which are four events every year (usually). But it's not even as good as winning a WGC event or the Masters or something (also limited field events) as an actual achievement. I'd be willing to wager that simply because: There are a lot of other good golfers out there. He hasn't done it yet, and for "this" to be the catalyst, he'd have to do it within the next year or so for this to be the "launching pad." Who cares if he, like Sergio, wins a major 15 years later? The 1999 PGA was not the launching pad for Sergio's Masters win. Nor were any of the Ryder Cups in which he played so well, etc.
    • Make some swings in a mirror and try different things. See what your feels produce. I don't really know what you mean by "using your knees" in this way, and quite honestly, I don't think you do either… not because you don't think you know, but because you're probably not doing what it feels like you're doing. Move the hips properly, and see what the other body parts do. Do it in a mirror so the feedback is immediate.
