Ford   Vs  Ferrari.  Birdie.  I don’t find racing that interesting, but every once in a while one of these movies comes along that I’m totally entertained with.

Agreed!

We are starting to watch the last few James Bond movies in prep for the new one that comes out in November (I know...).   

We've watched Casino Royale which is my favorite Dan Craig Bond movie (tap in birdie),  Quantum of Solace (6' birdie putt) and Skyfall (par).

Greyhound.  Lip out eagle.  Great movie as most Tom Hanks movies seem to be.

Athlete A, a documentary about Larry Nassar.

The whole time I was ill, so I have a hard time really accurately rating this movie. I want to give it a quintuple bogey, because I can't separate the subject from how well it was covered. I also want to give it an albatross, for the bravery (and it's sad that it requires bravery) of the women who came forth and told their story.

So I'm just going to say I played it, and I recommend others watch it as well.

Hamilton - I don’t give out eagles often but this was terrific. I’m not much of a rap fan, but this was perfectly blended with rap and phenomenal singing. All the actors were excellent. There was humor and drama. Really excellent musical.

Greyhound - par. I was interested in the cat and mouse bit between destroyers and subs, but that part was a bit muddled, not exactly sure what was going on during some moments. And why they maintained radio silence and only to break it soon after. I suspect if I played one of those online multiplayer war video games, I would have learned a lot more.

   I found Greyhound to be a bit of a mixed bag.  I really enjoyed the tension during the battle scenes, but the more quiet moments felt like big parts were missing from them or left on the editing room floor.  To me, they seemed slightly incomplete.

 

  Also, RIP to one of my childhood crushes Kelly Preston.  Gorgeous lady, and I wish she would have made more movies over her career.

I rewatched bits of Greyhound, looked up all the navigation and naval terms I did not know and learned a lot, radio communication, navigation, naval warfare, the German navy and the US navy, encryption, and read up a little about today's subs. Between this movie and Midway, got a bit of a history lesson. I still have no idea whether when they shoot torpedos out of a sub, whether there is a wire connected to it for communications purposes though.

Double eagle. I had problems with Bales character at first but then watched a documentary and realized the manners was actually quite spot on.
Racing scenes as usual didn´t look all that great from a simracers perspective. 

Last movie seen was midsommar. Swedish horror movie. Weird enough to work quite well. Par on a demanding par 4!

I don't think so.

Netflix's The Old Guard - par. John Wick action but with old souls and contemplation on existentialism.

I must say, I wasn't sure if this would be any good.  But it turned out to be a great movie.

Definitely a tap in birdie.

Watched almost all of the Studio Ghibli movies since they’re now on HBO Max, like 15 of them. Favorites are My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, all eagles. Have watched these many times before but some of them only the dubbed version was available to me and it’s nice HBO made available both subtitled and dubbed versions for the whole collection.

King Arthur (2004, Clive Owen), par. A very "different" King Arthur story, completely fake or something, but supposedly also somewhat realistic. The story was fairly simple, but the fight scenes were good.

Happy Gilmore. Double bogey not better then I remembered. I watched some Sandler movies I enjoyed. But in a way it foresee which direction professional golf has headed 🙂 Would that hockey putter be deemed legal if it had a straight blade?

Do I now dare to rewatch Tin Cup again? It would be quite fresh don´t remember a lot about it.

    • If only there were decades of tournament data that could provide statistical clarity to the question. 
    • I have had lessons in the past. In addition to this ive read countless ideas on the swing by so many people and watched gold constantly. When i was good at golf, i had a swing where i attacked the ball very much from the inside and played with a strong draw. My grip was odd...the left hand pretty neutral but the right hand strong. The swing was very short and had a very fast tempo, not dissimilar to someone like Nicholas Thompson off the PGA tour. I got down to a 2 handicap at lowest, and usually a low 3 handicapper hovering around 2.5, 2.6 index. I wanted to get better as i never felt i hit the ball that well, so i sought out lessons and i saw the trackman numbers and such. We worked on getting the grip better, actually aligning to the target better (whereas before i would just kind of walk up to the ball, shuffle around a bit till i felt it was ok and hit), i started really focusing on things that i still think are good like alignment, routine etc. And the swing path became less inside out. For a while i played great, then i started getting steeper and steeper and hitting disgusting pull slices all day. THEN, it started getting to the point where, my mind wouldnt let me take the club away. I would do all kinds of crazy stuff like the club would bounce up and down and my takeaway totally frozen even though pros recommended trigger moves etc. Then because the game wasnt enjoyable because of the yipping, id start taking time off because i didnt want to go through with all of this and then, i started losing my flexibility, getting bigger etc. Now I just dont want to go because the only emotions i ever feel are frustration, resentment, annoyance, wanting it to be over after 10 mins and feeling like theres 4 more hours left etc. If you could take me back to a time where i did not yip, i would play the game again and absolutely love it, but its never ever coming back. Ive tried everything. It HURTS. Ive never been any good at ANYTHING else in my life. I put everything into golf from the age of 12 up to about 25. The last 10 years has just been too much for me. i just cant take it
    • So do you need the club that fills your stated clubs to hold greens (are you going to hit into the greens / all carry)? Or are you fine with some roll out? Hold greens > properly fitted hybrid ~19/20 degrees loft. Some rolll out ok / does not hit directly into a green > properly fitted 5 wood/~17-18 degrees loft. 
    • I would love to see Tiger start to use one of these  
    • First of all, nice job with getting a bit more on plane going back. The club isn’t going nearly as much to the inside which is good. I’d take screenshots of where you are at A2 and keep tracking that so you can be sure you are starting back on plane. Overall, you are trending the right way here! I don’t really think the head movement is anything to be focusing on. If anything, it is a symptom of the OTT move and not a cause. The more important thing to notice about the transition is the shoulder move and what exactly it is accomplishing and then working back from that a little bit to find the root cause. What I see is a shoulder move in transition that is a compensation for your pretty flat shoulder turn. Look at how flat your shoulders are at the top of the backswing and then look at how much steeper they get right after you start the transition. The answer to this might very well be what @iacas was suggesting by nudging you towards working on your torso turn in the early backswing. That should help get your shoulder turn to be a bit steeper. Before you start true downswing/transition thoughts or work: backswing, backswing, backswing.
