Which PGA Tour Pro are You?

Recommended Posts

I ended up as Tiger Woods:

Tiger Woods

You'll stop at nothing to win. You have an incredible drive to succeed at everything you do but dislike the attention that comes with success. You are intensely private and prefer to associate only with people who respect that. You might have the driver yips.
Yeah, not so sure about that…
Anyway:

You'd prefer to win but it's OK if you don't. You'd rather go for it than lay up. You're easy-going, friendly and like the trappings of fame and success. Other people might call you a know-it-all behind your back.

I couldn't get the link to work, but I know if I could be that PGA guy it would be Miguel Ángel Jiménez. I just like the guy, and the way he carries himself. My apologies to Tommy Watson

That said if I had my life to do over, and I could work in the pro golf industry, I would have been a caddy, much like Fluff. Being a PGA caddy would be a great job to my way of thinking.

Strangely accurate description. It read my personal life based on my golf skills, and nailed my driver issues. :-\

Ricky Fowler


You bring a certain cool factor to everything you do and might even take part in adventure sports in your spare time. Despite your youthful outlook on life, you have respect for tradition and are willing to work hard to get better at what you do.

Bubba Watson


You have a hard time standing still and might live in the South. It's almost impossible for you to hit a ball straight. You might own something adorned with the Confederate flag.

Really?!    Well I do have a hard time standing still and I live in the South......

Bubba was mine. It must be because I said I liked the South... or Dukes of Hazzard... going back and changed a couple of answers and I got Fowler...

Ha ha, yeah. I cringed a bit when I chose The Dukes of Hazzard, "this better not make me Bubba! :mad: ", but I wanted to be honest and not game the system. Was pretty relieved to not get Bubba.

    • I thin that the fastest solution would likely be to practice your putting distance control and improve with your current equipment, but it is possible that your putter is a weight that will not work well for you. A way you could test it out is by going, ideally, to a course with several different types of putters for sale and asking if you could test them against your current putter on the practice green. Not all courses will do this, but many of the better courses will allow it if you leave the plastic on the putter or if they have a demo. You could also ask any golfing partners you have if you could borrow their putters to try out.
    • https://www.strackaline.com/#/course?courseId=696 It says that the Moon Valley book is event locked. I can't seem to find exactly what that means, but my guess is that it sounds like the course does not want the slope of their greens handed out to anyone and everyone unless they're playing in an event at the course. The website gives a number, however, to the phone of a man named Ben Malamitsas on that page to contact for pricing information and I'm sure he could give you a better idea of what the "event locked" designation means.
    • They have an online store. Don't know about your particular course. -Best, Marv
    • No, the hips do not move more than a few millimeters, maybe a centimeter at most, during a normal fundamentally sound putting stroke. The small amount of movements is just a small side to side sway caused by swinging a ~340 gram weight on a pendulum-esque arc while it's attached to your body. It's not a large enough movement to require the hips to turn. It's primarily a back and forth rocking motion, at least for me, of the shoulders. The hips have no place in the putting swing for me, and I haven't seen a proficient putter yet who does deliberately turn or sway with their hips, only very small motions that are side effects of swinging a weight around.
    • Those clubs you KNOW when you hit the sweet spot. Had a perfectly pure 4-iron on Friday afternoon that prompted Erik to ask me whether I needed a change of pants afterwords, but then again I probably was just getting a bit excited in the middle of the competition. If you hit a fair number of shots with them you can see if the penalty for mishits is acceptable to you based on how often and how badly you usually miss. The sweet spot is definitely a bit different than hitting it solid. Solid is going to feel really nice, and it's going to fly well, but the sweet spot is that ball that usually goes further than you expected. It's the drive you got 15 extra yards on, or the iron shot that flew the pin to land at the back of the green.
