2013 CIMB Classic Discussion Thread

24 posts in this topic

Greetings ..... Check out who's invited to this year's CIMB Classic, particularly those in the "Available Top 60 from the 2013 Fed Ex Cup Points List". As you will see by viewing both links below, the CIMB tournament staff had to go way, way down the points list to find players who wanted to play in this event. Will this be the case all the time, or will more of the top players choose to tee it up here in future years??

Weird comments for someone that hit 15 GIR in the first round

http://www.pgatour.com/tourreport/2013/10/24/mickelson-cimb-struggles.html

Quote:
"I can't remember swinging this bad in a long time," Mickelson told Golf Channel after opening his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season with a 1-under 71 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. "I can't find the middle of the club face. And I'm not sure if the ball is going to go dead left or snap hook right and it's a frustrating time tee to green."

For real, he really isn't even playing that bad. His confidence must just be a little low right now.

FYI.

I played with Keegan Bradley's (who is leading after 2 rounds) caddie early last week before he had to travel to Malaysia.  Apparently he lives in Parker, CO and travels out of DIA (Denver International Airport).

He is a great guy.  Friendly and courteous.  He has that "caddie mindset".  He raked all the bunkers he hit into (even the disturbed sand that wasn't his doing).  He was constantly fixing pitch marks on the green.

I don't care for Keegan Bradley's pre-shot routine.  In fact, I can't stand to watch him before the shot.  But after having met his caddie, I am pulling for him--for his caddie more so than Keegan, if that's possible.

His pre shot routine is down right painful to watch but he can play that's for sure. He played high school golf at my other course so I can't help but to root for him.

I watched tv coverage yesterday. He is beating his tee shots bad... Real bad.

True, but it really helps show the difference in mindset and expectations between a top tour pro and us normal schlubs.....

He might be referring more to his tee shots, I'm not sure.  There certainly is a lack of confidence there, didn't put a driver into play for half of the season.  He might be dealing with some off center hits, so more gear effect is coming into play.  You get a guy with his speed hitting it slightly off the toe, it's going right (lefty) fast.  Think that's what has him a little shaken.

Phil will get it together and then take a nec break for the winter. Keeegan, I hope he wins. He is slowly becoming my second favorite golfer behind Dufner. And I dont know about you all, but I love watching late night golf live. I usually record golf and watch it when home late at night and have to avoid the internet so I dont know anyhting about the days rounds, but its nice being able to watch it happen when it happens. Thats why I think that maybe a Major in Japan/China/Somewhere over there might work. It will be live coverage in the evenings. Wonder if it would get better ratings?

GIR is obviously one of the most important stats, but it doesn't always tell the whole ball striking story- 2 Doubles, 10 shots back, under 40% fairways hit is not exactly good golf for Phil.  I have not seen any of the tourny, but maybe Phil feels he has gotten away with some poor driving and ball striking even if his GIR% is good.  If it was the US Open, it might be hard to make the cut if you were only hitting 40% of the fairways.

This final round leaderboard is getting really crowded. I don't know if America is ready for the Asian John Daly to reach its shores.

I'd like to see Woodland win it, also would love to see Cink get up there on the leaderboard.

We are into overtime. Playoff between Woodland and Moore, beginning Monday 7.30 am KL time.  That would be about 8.30 pm Sunday night. (I think) Anyway, those are two protagonists. Aphibarnrat tied for second.

Really, PHil needs to back off on the past parallel back swing.    He can pull it off at times, but I really think it's hurting him in terms of ball striking accuracy.    Just because he can, doesn't mean he should ALL THE TIME.    IMHO  of course ....

    • I am with @DaveP043  Just buy the damned tees. or as  Bernie says.."enough of the damned emails".  OTOH, nothing wrong with a bit of lively discussion supported by factual information.
    • I usually like to tee my ball 2" below waist high.
    • Nadir is technically correct but fairly arcane; I've never heard anyone refer to the lowest point of the golf swing as the nadir. I used the term "apex' because in racing it refers to the inside point of the racing line in a turn at which you're closest to the curb. The orientation of hands to clubhead at impact does make a difference. However, the naive solution to being told you're leading the club with the hands is to release your wrists earlier, and done even a little too early this results in "casting" the club which wastes most of the power of the downswing. So, you have to be real careful telling someone who's keeping his wrists too stiff to "release more".
    • Actually, I was just looking back through the old Bulls goalies and there are a bunch of familiar names. Early on you had Doug Dadswell and Sandy Galluppo. Both those guys played for the Cyclones and Sandy had a stint with Dayton before Birmingham. You were one of the many, many stops for old Kalamazoo goalie Mike Torchia, a Michelin man-looking guy that I saw play the Cyclones many times. Last but certainly not least was my old BG buddy Shawn Timm. He played a miserable 15 minutes in goal for the Bulls after his senior season with the Falcons. Gave up three goals and became an investment banker. Great memories.
    • It might not have been the security guards who suggested paying for the damages. He gave them ~ $50 cash. He wasn't 'shaken down', taken to an ATM, relieved of watch, electronics, etc. In the U.S. there is such a thing as a citizen's arrest. It's possible that in Rio some licensed private security guards may be deputized in some way with partial powers to detain for arrest. Every time Lochte's lawyer responds to a media inquiry with 'no comment' it's billable time. If they decide to answer the charges with local representation the money bleed will accelerate. I'm positive paying the donation in lieu of fine in the short term like his teammate did would have been less costly. It would have been even less costly ~ $50 if he had kept his trap shut in the media having already narrowly avoided an official 'on the books' detention / arrest / fine. http://www.people.com/article/ryan-locht-summoned-brazil
