2013 RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

walk18    34
This is one of my favorite tournaments that unfortunately gets overlooked because its right after the Masters (yes the Masters is over now people). Maybe I'm partial because I've been there and I love the course and the area. Shotmaking not length counts here, and the setting is perfect. My pick is Luke Donald. Who ya got?

Brandt Snedeker trying to get over the Masters loss

Quote:

“Sunday night was tough,” said Snedeker, three days removed from a final-round 75 that dropped him from a share of the lead into a sixth-place finish at the Masters. “Anytime you have a chance to win a major championship and you don't do it, especially the Masters, my kind of favorite tournament, a tournament I'd give my whole career to win, it’s tough.

“If it's not tough, then I need to find another job.”


Snedeker’s job this week is the RBC Heritage, which is about as much therapeutic treatment as he could ask for.

For one, Harbour Town Golf Links and the surrounding area is as laid back as it gets. For another, he’s won here before, having beaten Luke Donald in a playoff two years ago.

It also beats the alternative of sitting around and listening to talking heads dissect every moment of every minute of last week’s Masters.

“You kind of turn a blind eye to it,” Snedeker said. “You don’t seek out the Golf Channel.

“(Being here) definitely gets it out of my mind. I did a lot of great stuff last week, but I need to get my head around what I need to do to play well.”

Ted Potter Jr. He's from the same town I live in and he and my son played on the same high school team.

Remember he lost in a playoff to Furyk that year after taking a penalty on the first playoff hole (moving loose impediments in a hazard)?

Edit : Spelled "loose" wrong. I was just so eager to correct Jamo

:doh: Doy! I remembered he was involved with something like that, looked at his Wikipedia page, saw the title of the tournament, and assumed he had won. Guess I should have realized it was under lost playoffs.

Wow - what a difference a week makes. Not much discussion about this week's tour event. Not a major, no Tiger, no Phil, no Rory. No Guan. No interest?

Massive Masters hangover! I'll be honest, I've never taken much notice of the RBC in the past because of the Masters. Watched yesterday and it looks a beautiful course. Agree that Lukey D will do well, it looks like a course where you need to be epic around the greens, will suit him to the ground. He struggled a little yesterday, but seems to be back on the ball today. Would like to see JD-ier do well.

Watching a few minutes of round two: there's some ugly golf being played there (Leishman jailed in the trees, hitting over port-o-johns and concession tents....ended up hitting over people and hit a lady who's now spread eagled out - but has a signed glove to show for it)......Brian Davis chunking pitch shots into sand trap, Snedeker probably missing the cut, Carl Pettersson shooting a 39 on the frontside........

Then there's Streelman....Seriously.

They suspended play right before Parnevik could hit his par putt on 18. Because of this, it's still unsure if the cut will be at +1 or +2, about 15 guys will have to wait until tommorrow to see, if he makes that putt. These 15 players really will be pissed if Parnevik makes that putt in the morning.

Bad timing right there...

"Seriously?" Haha. If he wins we'll get to hear all about Jesus again.

Well he makes the cut either way right? And he's probably not winning anyway ... Maybe bring some goodwill his way from those 15 guys if he just lags it up there in the morning. ;)

    • I've often had the problem of not hitting the driver as well as irons.  Over the last few rounds I came up with something that works pretty well for now:  Activate the wrists a little more with the driver.  With irons I've been swinging with a kind of "dead hands" feel in an attempt to cast/flip less and get a nice inline impact.  It just doesn't work the same for me with the driver. Now I'm trying to get a little more of a "swinging" feel with the driver.  Not afraid to let the club swing the wrists back into a hinged position, then not afraid the feel them swing unhinged in the downswing.  Sort of conciously unhinging them.  Not too much though.  Still have to swing the arms and body.  I'm just sort of letting the club head go more instead of my normal bunt/block kind of shot. I hope some of that made sense and was helpful.
    • Okay, I feel a little better now. Thanks for the info guys. Saved me a little worry
    • I just didnt get it. I have a. Odyssey metal x milled 1 that I love and works great for me and I have an odyssey white hot rossie, that I also love the feel, balance, weight, and the way it plays. I got them both for about 200, 200 for both clubs, their used, except that the metal x is in mint condition, but 200 for two good clubs I get, 350 for a putter....it better guarantee that u jar it from 90 ft before I pay that much. But thats my opinion. I just didnt know if they're was something amazing or mystical about these that I was unaware of for that price
    • Maybe thick grip on putter trend seeping into full swing clubs? Heck if I know. Do thick grips make it harder to install via air compressor?
    • did not know where exactly where to place this thread, but........ Okay, I have been struggling with iron play so have been working diligently on it at the expense of losing faith in Driver, fairway woods, and lower lofted hybrids. I have gotten much better at the irons, hitting all of them crisp and even being able to stop on a green. Today it was almost like throwing darts in that most of the iron approaches stopped dead in their tracks, however the greens were recently heavily "sanded" and therefor hardly any roll out at all. Just "thud craters". Not complaining mind you, as its always nice to lay one right up pin high within three feet or so (but sometimes shorter than expected).  That being said, now I just can not seem to hit driver e.t.c.  (nothing new here, and a lot of discussion in the past).  It would be nice to have a practice routine that would benefit me in both ways or as the subject line says, achieve balance.  Just a mild moment of "introspection" and muse.......
