Paddy really needed that one.

Wow, Westwood posts a 65, nice!

Westwood was in the fairway, 146yds out for his approach on the 1st hole (his 10th), and still double-bogeyed.  Must've been a loose iron shot there, or he woulda been even lower. Glad to see that didn't derail his round. That dropped him from -3 to -1 on his round, but he birdied 5 of his last 6 holes of the day (those birdie putts were: 4, 15, 7, 17, and 40 ft).

In the post-round interview he said it landed in a divot. Not sure what happened exactly.

Well not only is there a 100% chance of thunderstorms tomorrow, the chances grew to 80% of heavy thunderstorms Saturday. Could be a messy, 2nd and 3rd round. Damn and I have to work Monday.

Lou Gehrig's disease is a hell of a disease.

I'm so completely bored by Rory. Until he hooks one OB left.

    • So you can do what you did and add head weight to counter the grip weight. You can find lighter midsize grips, which obviously isn't always a viable option. You can also find shafts with more tip heavy balance points. You could also add a little length to the club to get that weight back. All these options have pros and cons. My personal feeling on SW is that it's mainly about getting a consistent feel through your irons and wedges. I don't care about matching woods, hybrids, putters to an iron SW. Most important for me is a smooth weight progression through the set so each club is getting heavier moving from driver to wedges. The simplest option is start out with just the new grips and no additional weight at the tip. Use whatever iron you want, and hit some balls with impact stickers, foot spray powder, dry erase marker on balls, launch monitor, etc, to look at your impact pattern. Then start adding some lead tape to the back and repeat the process. At some point you should find your consistency is at it's best and adding or taking away weight from that point is detrimental. Then just add the same amount to the rest (remembering head weight influences longer clubs more than shorter so you may want to shave a gram or two off in the longer irons vs. the shorts). Only other thing to look out for if you add weight to the clubs is how you hit them at the end of the round when you are tired compared to the start of the round. Most people can handle an 130g shaft for the first 5-10 swings, but not necessarily by the end of the round.
    • Have you ever gotten a club fitting? I also launch the ball lower than ideal and part of that is my swing, part of that was the shaft I was playing. I wonder if changing to a higher lofted driver will cause you to hit the ball with more spin and you wouldn't see any gains in distance.

    • I thought I saw that picture in a post office. Other than that, nothing controversial. I do celebrate the comments on how there is a place in golf for a wide variety of swings. That has made a comeback and this golf fan appreciates the diversity and individuality of the looks.
