Hopefully won't get into trouble for bumping an older thread but this is awesome.
I'm working on hipslide, infact I'm obsessed with hipslide. I'm a s&t player so the hipslide is key part of the process for me at the moment.
Any of you high HC players onto any feelings that help you get this down?
Finding it so hard to nail. I'm a feeling player and the info the coach has given me all makes total sense but unless I can get a feeling to work towards its hit and miss.
I may need glasses after all the eye-rolling I did at that piece. You can cite all the stats you want, but I look at the fact that Spieth won two events in 2016 and was one terrible hole away from winning the Masters. True, Spieth hasn't really looked himself in recent months, but I haven't seen anything that would convince he that his game has somehow severely dropped off. If there's anything psychological to it, I bet he just needs to get back to Augusta and put in another good showing to really put his 2016 choke behind him, and he'll be fine. Wouldn't shock me at all if Spieth wins the 2017 Masters, either.
Was 2015 a 'fluke' in the sense that Spieth probably isn't going to win two majors in a year again? Sure. Of the very short list of guys who have ever had two-major years, it's a much shorter list of guys with multiple two-major years in their careers. It's ridiculous that we're suddenly writing golfers off for not stringing together huge year after huge year; we're spoiled by Tiger, who was a once-in-a-generation type of icon and maybe the best ever. Why penalize Spieth or others for not being Tiger? That's an absurd standard to live up to.
Spieth has eight wins and two majors under his belt and he's still just 23 years old. Hell, even if Spieth did suffer some Duval-esque collapse of his game, he's already had a massively successful career that almost any PGA golfer would kill to emulate.
Can't remember the name of the course, but it was somewhere in the Orlando area. Someone in my group tried to reach the green of a par5 in two and went in the water. Dropped in front of the swamp/lake and duffed his second ball again in the water. Then threw his wedge out of frustration also in the water. After a second he realized this was his expensive wedge with his name inscribed on the club, so HE JUMPED IN the water to retrieve his precious tool. Snapping turtles, snakes, gators and the likes lurking in the dark there. But he managed to retrieve his wedge without loosing a limb.
