I don't really know how the bench works, but I just did a quick first round swap, got rid of Ryan Palmer and put in Harris English.

Palmer finished 5 over and Harris is current 4 under and I know he's been very consistent. Not sure why I didn't put him in right away.

Patrick Reed has been so consistent lately, hard not to pick him. Though I heard something like he had displaced ribs recently? Well Stadler is a consistent back up if he doesn't make the cut. I picked Furyk strictly for experience reasons. He almost always makes the cut at Pebble Beach. Curious to how rusty he is. I couldn't believe G-Mac is considered C Level....I mean the guy won the US Open at Pebble haha. Oh well, good for me.....I hope.

Definitely ^^

and ughhhhh!!! Why do my bench players kick so much ass every round! I should just pick a bench team and then swap them in right before the event starts....confuse the golf gods a little bit.

Spieth, Mahan, Walker, and Stadler all had good rounds.

My starting team is collectively -9.... bench is -18

Hope I'm not intruding, not sure if this is for a specific league, but I have a question that you guys may be able to help me out with.

My league is set up where every team has 11 players and you start 7 each week.  On my bench is Tim Clark who has been non-existent so far this year and I don't know if I should just drop him for someone else or keep him riding the pine until he shows up.  I know he withdrew due to injury in Hawaii, but I haven't seen any updates since then.  Anyone know what his deal is?  Guy has turned into a ghost!

TC has been MIA due to soreness in his elbow.

He probably will need several weeks for recovery.

He was playing very well, hope he's doesn't miss many more events.

I'm going to play along with @Crim and post my starters.

I like several players this week, but do not want to burn their "starts" each and every week.

So this is a maintenance week and I am going with alternative players.

^^ Nice, not bad at all.

Spieth, DeLeat and Walker have been on a role lately, and Walker has stated that this is his favorite tournament.

I just hope that my bench team doesn't completely own my starters like the last couple weeks.

Thank goodness I picked Rickie Fowler instead of Phil as my backup. If Tiger doesn't make the cut I can switch to Rickie.

    • This entirely depends on where you play. I play courses that usually have three groups and a couple of singles out per side, and I would say no, but then I get to an urban course, like Long. Island, or South Florida, and it's anger management time.  I like to watch my friends's shots, and compliment their successes, I take a couple practice swings if I am in an uneven lie, or whatever, but I am not going to spend time searching for extra balls while walking between shots, or sit and BS at the tee before shooting. For some reason I am always ready to hit first, honors or no, and I just don't get why people take so long there. As long as I can do the things I enjoy, like watching my shots and my friends shots, and take due care taking my shots and putting, I don't feel rushed, but three hours for a foursome means you have four serious golfers. My golfing is more social so that is unlikely to happen. I play with one guy who takes pace seriously, and we do fine.  If we want to pick up the pace of a group, we play best ball.
    • It would  be cool to see him get his card and do well, in this age of specialists from day 1, someone takes a different route and makes it.
    • Well, what if a feel for you produces a result for another that doesn't work at all? That is the problem of using feels in trying to describe what is going on. I am not you, you are not me, and we are not Mickey Wright.  Each golfer needs to find their own feel for what might produce the same movement.

    • It's not the powers that be. It's anybody who understands the golf swing and its mechanics. "feel" is never scientific nor does it provide any evidence. You don't agree with that? "Reasons to support the old school motion". Iacas has repeatedly stated he supports your appreciation for what you call 'Old School". He stated he's fine and even teaches the lifting of the lead heal if it allows one to gain better rotation. You seem to be trying to defend something and I'm not sure what it is you're defending. The rear leg does not retain its flex completely on the bs. You can have the 'feeling' all you want that it does. But it doesn't. Just like 'feeling' you keep your trail arm straight to help widen your swing. It's impossible to keep straight. Feeling it as being straight? Fine. I don't think you seem to understand that just because these 'old school' golfers SAID what they felt or did during a swing doesn't  represent WHAT THEY ACTUALLY DID. Mickey Wright can say she tried to get all her weight or 95% of it on her trail leg in the backswing. Fine. But she didn't. You can't possibly believe that if we put these "old school" golfers on pressure plates their readings would be vastly different than today's 'modern players'?  No one has said the old school motion was wrong. What has been stated, correctly by Iacas, is that what you're describing as what is being done by that swing is incorrect. Hell, you even just admitted your statement on weight shift was inaccurate.  So....what, again, is your point?
