That's a good point 70sSanO. I see too many guys look like they are doing a squat when they set up to the ball. Look at the pros. They set up with their knees just slightly flexed. In a down the line pic, a vertical line drawn downward from their armpits will hit the balls of their feet.
Ok. Just a thought here. Ernie is a great guy from what I've gathered over the years. But this kind of irked me. With all the hoopla over LT's penalty, is this a sign of what's to come? I mean...he called a penalty because the ball came out better than he expected! Is it possible he was more concerned a TV viewer would rewind it meticulously and call in? Calling yourself on a penalty is respectable and I guess expected, but he 'felt the ball came out too easy'. He placed the ball as best as humanly possible...but then second guessed himself due to how the ball came out? I dunno ...what do you all think ?
Also course design and where the par 3's are placed factors into it as well. There was a local course where both nines started out goofy. #1 was a par 5 about 530-540, and #2 was a par 3 of about 190. #10 was a brutal par 4, 440, and #11 was a long par 3 of 210! Groups would stack up on both 2 and 11 tees.
Got out late afternoon, both yesterday and today. Pair of 78's. It's been awhile since I've had 2 back to back rounds in the 70's.
Now that I've mentioned it, I'll bet there's a sweet 85+ lurking in my near future...
