No reason ... just not a giant fan. ;)  I'll become one if he redeems himself at the Ryder Cup this year though. BTW, if somebody hasn't already, they need to come up with a catchy new dance video, complete with lyrics by Brandel Chamblee (feat. Frank Nobilo and Lil John) called the "Push Hook."

According to Ian Baker Finch, if you give Furyk a short iron he hits it close every single time. No hyperbole there!

I have no sound ... are they meticulously analyzing Tigers swing by comparing the differences and ignoring two vastly different camera angles??

Lol, yes, that is exactly what they're doing.

So it's not the shaft lean, it;s not being able to square the club?

As things stand, I'm as good a driver as Tiger Woods. This is a truly awful display.

Boy this coverage is horrific. The focus is on Tiger's group, but none of them are doing anything. Then the guys that are playing well, they show once in awhile.

I'll defer to the pros on that. I had a shaft lean (with the driver) and struggled squaring the face at times, I eliminated that lean and I've never driven the ball better. Is it the shaft lean? I can't say for sure

Gotta love IBF. I hear he likes Rich Beem's chances this week.

I agree. Tiger is missing the cut. Period. Now show us people who are playing for something.

Woods and beaver-face both making chumps of themselves on the 6th green.

I can't get the TNT stream to work very well, so I am stuck having to watch the Marquee Group stream on the PGA website.

Tiger is done, for this week, anyway.

Yeah, Tiger is out. His game is far away at this point.

Hate to say it, but I think thats it for Tiger as well.

He just looks defeated as well.

Are you serious? Please Tom Watson.....DO NOT PICK THIS GUY! I want to actually have a shot at winning next month.

I assume you're talking about Mickelson.[quote name="Silent" url="/t/76282/2014-pga-championship-discussion-thread/640_40#post_1036278"] I agree. Tiger is missing the cut. Period.

Like Juice Newton.[quote name="chasm" url="/t/76282/2014-pga-championship-discussion-thread/640_40#post_1036279"]Woods and beaver-face both making chumps of themselves on the 6th green.[/quote] Leave Paddy H alone!

    • Much appreciated. Doing the list the way you did is perfectly fine, just add the link to the post next time 
    • The younger generation equivalent of this is probably 15 signs you watch too much golf on Instagram/TikTok, but it kind of doesn't make sense because the videos are so short.
    • Okay, I was just trying to spare us all the slideshow. But, I'll be sure to include the link in the future. 
    • 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.
