Yeah no doubt she is attractive, until she putts! lol Reminds me of Shaq shooting free throws. And the "yellow fever" comment is more than on the outskirts, it's right down Main Street.

I think there was a little misunderstanding with my comments regarding the weight of LPGA players.

Yes....everyone likes eye candy but it is not what I was refering to

What I meant was more directed towards the fact that male (both PGA and Seniors) work hard

at being fit and very few are maybe a little flabby.

I would not consider Mickelson fat (maybe a couple of years back)

I would think that young women who walk who knows how many hundreds of miles

and make, who knows how many thousands of swings, would not have difficulty keeping their weight down.

I would think that they would want to exercise and increase their flexibility.

Watching Park and Zalla (?) at the recent LPGA major, neither one looked athletic, strong or

in any kind of physical shape (other than fat). Good golfers..yes

If you look at Suzanne Petterson (?), you see someone  that looks like she means business

Annika was also athletic and strong and not eye candy. Inkster  etc.

Wie fired Leadbetter and her new swing coach is her Father.  What a bad move on her part.

Wait, what? Is this real news or CNN news? Why would she switch to maybe her only option worse than Leadbetter?

Maybe the extra mass helps them hit the ball further.

This will not be pretty.

First of all, she's doing something that seems to be working better for her than before. Where does it say, that there is only one way to putt effectively? Take a look at video of Jack "N" putting style. He crouched! I doubt that any PGA teacher would teach that style, but I guess he did o.k. with it. What about Furyk?  Would his swing be recommended? No, because too many PGA teachers teach just one way regardless of what skills or needs their students require. Michelle Wie has had all of the putting "gurus" trying to improve her putting.None of that or them has worked, so what is wrong with what she's doing as long as she is comfortable with it?

Excuse me if someone has already mentioned this but the technique was originally developed by golf pro Leo Diegel. He played in the 40's I believe. My dad had a set of Leo Diegel irons. It brings back memories.

I find her very attactive also was watching her last night play. IMHO i dont see a place for any one on a forum that states stuff like that.

That is coming from a 50 year old white guy!

Michelle\s got the sweetest pair of pig-tails this week. She looks so good.  Hey, i watched her putt twice and she drained both putts so it seems the putting stance is working out OK. I also see some very heavy asian girls, from various countries.  I rather think it is a good thing that the physical appearance of the ladies is taking second place to the performance on the course. Goes to show that any body shape can play this game, men and women.

    • The 80 I shot a few months ago has been knocked off my card, and my handicap currently sits at 16.3. However, my round from today (score post in a little bit) knocked the next-lowest round, 83, off as well, so it will probably skyrocket when I get my update tomorrow. Stay tuned.
    • Haven’t practiced in a while. Got into a little bit of a funk there. Been playing poorly lately; was going to pack away the clubs for the winter but I committed to an outing for some reason so I’m going to make the best of it 😃 First swings weren’t great. Might have figured out the main issue, though. Backswing stuff, inconsistent club head position at transition. Leads to lots of randomness. Started rehearsing A4 and then slowly bringing the club back to the same position, feeling that I’m set there (kind of a pause or slight delay), and then firing hard.   I posted the swings at real speed because I wanted to see the backswing at real speed. Feels slow to me but isn’t, and I’m not surprised there’s no actual pause at transition. Hit the ball really well like this though, which is promising.
    • Played 18 yesterday. Didn't score well due to some lapses in my priority piece on the course and associated penalty strokes. When I executed the swing I worked on in my lesson and recent practice sessions (mainly the takeaway/backswing), the ball was going where I aimed it. Short and mid irons were straight, maybe with a touch of fade or draw to them. Longer clubs were a little bit of a pull-fade flight. Of course, this is n=1 so who knows if this pattern holds over time. My miss was a cut/fade that starts on target, or maybe a bit pushed, and moves moderately to the right, and comes up short of typical distance. This miss is much more playable than the violent hooks, pull hooks, and shanks I was hitting previously. Overall I'm feeling optimistic that I can solidify these changes quickly, and hopefully get some decent rounds in before rainy season. Another thing my teacher asked me to try was not hovering the club at setup. She thinks it can help with my commitment to my target line/setup. I didn't take this advice as something that is right or wrong, but just a new approach to try and see if there is any improvement. I tend get fidgety with my feet when I am hovering the club prior to takeaway and start repositioning my feet and changing my alignment. I tried it in my round yesterday when I remembered it, but reverted back to hovering often.
