Looks like a decent field this week. Rose, Bradley, Watson, DJ, Spieth, Mahan, Dufner, Kuchar, Poulter, Oosthuizen, Westwood. Also, seems like there are some European tour players in the mix: Molinari, Olesen, and Dubuisson. Should be a good tournament.

Commonly won by shorter hitters an good putters. I like a sleeper guy like Pat Perez. Played real well this year, decent putter, shoulda won a few weeks ago. Harris English and Brian Davis also decent putters who I could see win. But who the hell knows

Sorry I fell asleep watching Freddie's swing :-D

That Harmon kid has crazy amount of forearm rotation in the backswing. His face angle is parallel to the path at or just past A2.

I watched him for a half hour, just puring every shot.

Yeah same thing with Brian Stuard, very odd takeaways because of how much they roll #3.

Good videos to check out with all the recent discussion in the Quickie Pitching Thread

I'm going to throw Jimmy Walker's name in there, dude is on a roll and he stated a couple days ago that this is his favorite tournament. Look for him to contend once again.

Looks like Couples & Dufner are using Trackman. Anyone else?

What's the typical percentage of those on the range using TM/FS on a Monday?

Thanks for the vids and pics Mike, wish I could be there.

Question? In post#5 there is a photo which looks like CH lll on the putting green.

What was the setup on the putting green?

(Putter had mechanism on lower part of shaft with a standup device perpendicular to the person on the green, connected to a laptop)

    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/bweiss711/round/1137850 A couple of firsts in this round.  It was my first round using the GG tags, and it was also my first round ever under 100.  If you want to see what 18 holes looks like when you have no clue where the ball is going off the tee and have no short game at all to speak of.... check out this round!
    • I think the point is, if the victim of a non-violent theft decides to use violence against the thief well after the crime was committed, he opens himself up to all kinds of trouble. Obviously it's different if someone gets jumped or car-jacked and the criminal is the first one to threaten or use violence. I'm not sure how pepper spray is classified in terms of being a weapon or not but I imagine using it could legally be considered assault in a situation like this.  
    • Well, I did it!  Been taking hacks at golf courses for 20 years, started actually practicing 7 weeks ago, and I finally mother-effing broke 100 yesterday.  Shot 96 at a course I had only played one time before about 8 years ago. This was easily the most consistent I've ever hit the ball into the greens (8 GIRs) and my driving was as good as it has been all season.  The biggest thing with the driver was deciding to stop trying to be perfect on the tee.  Meaning, I wasn't concerning myself with how I thought I should be ideally hitting the club, instead, I just hit it the way I naturally hit it right now, played the "power fade" aimed out over the left side of the fairway, and mostly kept it in play.  I was still inconsistent off the tee with a few pop ups and pulled shots, but for the most part, I stayed out of trouble. The even better news is that I shot 96 and my short game was terrible. I had a couple duffs in sand traps and from the rough around the greens.  Plus, of my 8 GIRs, I 3-putted 5 of them and it wasn't always the lag putt that was the problem.  I missed a few 3 footers that you just can't miss.  So, I've still got plenty of strokes to remove from my score once I actually start to work on shots around the green.  To this point, all of my practice has focused full swings with the irons and driver.  So, needless to say, I'm really excited about this.  I think i'm just going to play the rest of the season with the same practice focus.  Might be time to start a "member swing" thread for my driver.  And in the off-season, the focus will shift to the short game. Unfortunately, it might be a few weeks before I'm able to get out for 18 again, but I can't wait to get out there and try to do this again.
    • The incident in the OP doesn't sway my opinion on gun control one way or the other. Isolated incident in which some angry, old white dude should lose his right to carry indefinitely, but nothing that makes me believe that every gun carrier needs to be affected or restricted due to this incident. The John Wayne comments from some of y'all however, do make me think that gun laws need to be seriously revisited. The fact that some of you...ahem...more extreme individuals are actually permitted to carry is frightening indeed. And before there is an uproar, let me be clear that I have no issue with most of you who carry as your comments seemed to be well balanced and rational. Some others...not so much. It's seems pretty obvious to me that your right to bear arms should be dependant upon on your ability to not lose your shit when you're pissed off.
