2013 Traveler's Championship Discussion Thread

56 posts in this topic

Starts this Thrusday. Rickie Fowler is already in CT getting ready for it. Here is the list of all that are participating. http://www.pgatour.com/tournaments/travelers-championship/field.html Personally, I'd love to see Bud Cauley make another cut and maybe even a top 20 finish. The kid has loads of talent and the few times I've met him he's seemed to be a stand up guy.

Of course you would like to see Cauley play well. Homer.

Only kidding.

Can I get in on this SEC Football/Golf debate? Maybe one day we can have a Dufner, Cauley, & Toms playoff.

I picked Dufner as well. Also think Colsaerts has a chance.

Oh so there's another tournament this week? Im still recovering from all those 250 yard Par 3's from last week. What the heck I pick Dufner also. I like the guy plus he hilarious on Twitter. He'll go -19 and take home whatever the trophy is called this week. The Travelers Diamond Chain or something or another? Or is it a Plaid Jacket and Slacks?

Money or muscles. If you don't have one, build the other and the women will follow.

I think Webb Simpson will win it this weekend.

    • Driver does seem inadequate since it's got a big head on it but a 3 iron for those who carry would do just fine I imagine. Better yet, just get a cattle prod. It can fit in the bag and doesn't count against you as a club. A lil ol zap to the zipper fly area ought to adjust a persons attitude right quick. 
    • Where is the hole in your game?  Do you struggle close to the green?  Then look at lob wedge.  If you find yourself always needing a 200 yard club then go for a wood or driving iron. I would suggest since you already mentioned you don't hit your hybrid so well replacing it as well.  I don't hit hybrids myself, but there are many different types of hybrids from fat sole driving irons to short shaft woods.  A true hybrid will go a lot farther than an iron of the same loft making a 5 hybrid get into you 3 iron range.  If you go this route I would suggest a 2 and 4 hybrid to cover the gap between driver and irons. My personal preference is toward big fairway woods.  Most people will carry at least a 3 wood.  Lots of pros are using a strong 3 wood, whether it is called a 2 wood, 3+, or mini driver, these guys are using 11 to 14 degree woods with lots of club head speed to get 300 yards out of their fairway wood.  But with slower swings that most amateurs have they should be using a 12 to 14 degree driver meaning they should be using more loft on their fairway wood as well.  To go this route you might want to look at a 4 wood and 7 wood setup.  A 7 wood should be around the same yardage as a 3 hybrid. One last suggestion.  Find a 2nd hand store and look at some older model clubs.  You might just run across a 1 iron for less than $10.  For that price you could grab a hand full of long irons, hybrids, and woods that you can then hit the driving range and find what works for you.  
    • So IMO, if there are easier options to hit that can produce similar results, why play blades?  I had a set of Titleist 710 Cavity Backs and sold them for blades. Simply because they looked cool, and "all good golfers play blades". Well, I wasnt as good a ball striker that I thought I was. I now play AP2's and my handicap is as low as its ever been. For guys like Jordan Spieth and Luke Donald in your example, if they hit it pure most of the time, why risk that 1% where you dont pure it and the blade iron leaves you 15 yards short of your target and in a creek/hazard.  The technology in irons today is incredible for hitting high shots while still being able to work the ball plenty. Im not knocking anyone who plays blades, because that is impressive. It all comes down to preference.
    • KFC fried chicken scented sunscreen.   
    • Exactly, it comes up a lot in some of those "senior" golf tip sections on TV and in Magazines. We don't have those twist-o-flex spines anymore like we did in our 20's, so a little head start helps. But I think ANYONE can use it to help rotation. We may THINK we get around a lot, but sadly if you saw yourself on video... not so much. Then I wouldn't do it with the long irons. :^)  But seriously, folks... I run into this as well and it's my hands... I will tend to flip and steer the club trying to get the perfect ball flight. Hands get ahead and it's pulled or hooked. REALLY trying to keep my head behind the ball and WATCH the club hit the ball helps a bit, though. Good Luck.
