Shame for Watson -- that would have been a very impressive par: in the water off the tee, hit to wrong side of the green, pitch to 5 feet.

Miss the par putt.

WHO! WHO! How dare you

haha I had to. But this guy has about as much notoriety in the game as fellow countryman Alexander Levy. He has to do something when it matters for me to raise an eyebrow.

Definitely some correctional training here. Has no one ever taught you that achievement is in the imagination of the beholder? A bit like all these people saying how well Joost McIlroy is playing

My bad. I guess I just never happen to see this guy Looten's name on the leaderboard.

Bubba is a loser. No other way about it. A whiney loser.

Throws his club, makes caddie pick it up

Seriously, I agree with ya. Whether he is taking his frustrations out on his caddie or not, he's so damn whiny right now that he is going to shoot himself out of this tourney.

    • Recently I have been doing something I haven’t done in a while. Avoiding blow-up rounds. I have been playing the kind of golf I’ve wanted to always play. Boring. Pedestrian. Stay out of the shit, call the zoo kind of rounds. Ho-hum kind of golf. The last round I shot in the 80s was in August and that was an 81. My last five rounds have been 73, 76, 78, 73, 71. The last one was pretty boring. I had back to back bogeys on the 2nd and 3rd holes, then birdied the 5th and 6th (pedestrian birdie at 5, 2 putt at the par 5 after a 3-wood on the green straight into the fan from 235 yards) Nearly drove the 395-yard 6th (relax it was straight downwind and as the crow flies its only 340), got up and down for birdie. Then made 12 boring pars in a row for an even-par 71. 12 GIR, 18 nGiR, putted average. I guess I’ve learned how to be that boring golfer. I’ve been fighting a bit of a hook, so I said, “The hell with it, it’s what I’ve got. I’ll just adjust my target accordingly”. I guess having a one-way miss is a good problem to have.
    • Day 121.  More carpet putting;  ruler, putter, real balls.  Getting some decent speed ones past the 36" marker consistently. 
    • Day 48 - Moved my mat indoors, took some swings working on my new setup. 
    • I have struggled with the flip as well, and similarly have tried many different swing thoughts and drills to fix it with little success. What has worked for me recently though is this: focusing on keeping my right (trail) wrist hinged from the top of my backswing, as long as possible through impact. I have found that the more specific the instruction, the easier it is for me to carry out the action. In this case, the instruction is simple and direct-  keep your right hand bent back as long as possible. When I tried focusing on a more abstract swing thought like "turn your hips" , I've had a much harder time executing the movement. This video from Eric Cogorno really helped hammer in the concept of keeping the trail wrist hinged:    Who knows if this will work the same wonders for you as it has for me, but it could be something worth considering. Good luck!
