58 posts in this topic

Reminder! This is a Friday-Monday event.

Henrik Stenson is the defending champ and Rory won it the year prior.

WHEN/WHERE: Friday-Monday, TPC Boston in Norton, Mass.

AT STAKE: $1,440,000 first prize in $8 million total purse

SHORT SHOTS: Of the 100 players who qualified for the field, four will not play: Justin Rose, Paul Casey, Jason Dufner and Graeme McDowell – the latter taking paternity leave. … Phil Mickelson will play alongside Justin Hicks and Ryo Ishikawa late Friday and early Saturday.  Last week's winner, Mahan, has just one top-10 finish in 12 Deutsche Bank starts.

Originally designed by Arnold Palmer and built in 2003, TPC Boston was re-designed by Gil Hanse and PGA Tour player Brad Faxon .

Here's last years round 4 recap.

damitall - I went to look at the leaderboard and quickly realized it was Fri-Mon week on the PGA tour.

Oh well more time to work today, I guess.

I was thoroughly confused when looking at the leaderboard. I checked like 16 times.

I think he looks a bit like Foghorn Leghorn.

Yeah, he's OK at golf...

Right? He couldn't even get those iron shots in the hole, and what was up with that long putt? I mean he's a professional golfer and he can't even get his approach closer than 40 feet? I'm going to watch someone else with more star power ;-)

I have 21 "favorites on the PGA Tour" app playing this week. Only one cracked the top twenty-five: Seung Yul Oh No. Considering there is only 100 players in the field, there was a 21% chance of one of my "favorites" winning. SYON, Kevin Spacey, and Geogilvy were the only ones to crack par. It was a tough friday..LOL.

    • Thanks, makes perfect sense to me as it has been what I have worked on the past couple of months, and up until yesterday it wasn't something I had to really think about during the swing.  I'll hit the range sometime this week, hopefully it was just a bad day. And yes, been planning to get a My Swing Thread going, but was hoping to get back to where I felt my swing was late last year first. But that may not happen, so guess I'll try to get some swings recorded soon.
    • more offset if for the ones who can't close the face. for me i want less offset so i don't have to worry my ball hooking when i close the face. a lot of AM golfers aren't worry about trying to spin the ball with a GI irons, they are more into trying to smoke the ball as far as they can. and the most forgiveness they can get. but their are some guys who can spin the ball with a GI because they are using a softer ball which helps a lot and knows how to spin the ball. i think it's easier to hit a ball with a small face then a big face
    • I don't really feel that. I'm not working on anything that has to do with the elbow "dropping" at all. If anything I feel it driving outward (toward the ball) more as it comes down naturally. You should start a Member Swing thread of your own. Your elbow probably gets stuck around behind you too much. I'm exaggerating some things to help with my piece right now. It exits lower when I swing normally (even on a draw).
    • @iacas  two quick questions for you. On your transition into the downswing, what is your feel for when the club/hands/right arm/elbow drops?  I ask this because I had a horrific round yesterday, once I got to the top of my swing I was totally clueless, even went back to the range a few hours later, had no issues with wedges, but everything else stayed horrific.  I understand the lower body initiates the downswing, but for me it is more of a parallel move with my lower slide/rotation and my right elbow dropping.  I tried what I would call my normal swing and it just wasn't working, then I tried to only shift my lower body first, then tried the feeling of pulling my hands down and then out.  Regardless of what I tried it just didn't work, just lost all feelings when I got to the top.  Not looking for a magic pill here, just curious if you have a certain feel at this point in your swing. On your follow through, I notice your left arm stays high (inline with your shoulder line).  Mine is much lower when I finish my follow through, sometimes probably under my shoulder line. Is this just a difference in swings or is there a common fault that you see that may cause a lower follow through? Thanks!
