This thread kills me!!!  Where do I start?  First of all it seems that the same crowd who puts the pro game so far above ours and puts these guys on a pedestal that the mortal golfer will never achiev

Hinge and hold.

GROAN - What are you, 11? It's not as if that isn't the most predictable and hackneyed response possible. BTW, they weren't porn stars.

Probably just to give his new instruction time to work. Of course he already knows that.

You don't honestly, HONESTLY, think that has anything to do with his struggles, do you?

Just the scotty lol, he has made so many good putts with that scotty.

  1. Don't listen to anything in this thread.
  2. Take more photos of your kids. Actual photos, on paper.
  3. Take the underdog, especially when the favorite is bet heavily by the squares.

Spend a little more time with your wedges on tight lies around the greens. Man, it was crazy to see him blading 5 irons and even putting from 20" off the green. Totally psyched out of the wedges right now, I guess since the Isleworth disaster.

Two things: 1. Rocco Mediate is a complete and utter fool outside of my next point. 2. He's rippin Tiger for his choice of teachers. Says he could fix Tiger's short game in 5 min. Then says go to Trevino (which is actually pretty good advice). 3. Sorry, I'll add one: Rocco is a self-serving idiot. 4. Here's another: McChord is a rock star.

Go hook up with some porn stars...  (he seemed to play better when he was  banging them!)

As a fan that likes watching crazy good golf, I agree with this:) But seriously I don't really think that anybody here should be giving arguably the greatest golfer ever any advise. I also agree with @iacas, really start living life with your kids. disclaimer: I really don't like Tiger at all. Especially his off the course stuff, but to each they're own.

I'd advise him to quit. He's never going to be more than a shadow of the golfer he was, and the longer he goes on, the more marked will be the contrast between what his fans expect, and what he can deliver.

Im pretty sure at least one of them was.. + a couple other street walkers I think.. My advice would also be to just quit while ahead, make up a career ending injury and no one will ever second guess him.

    • Why does Rory struggle with consistency?
    • I would say it depends on how the 3W distance works with the length of the holes he is going to be playing. If there are par 4s around 430 for example I think he would be foolish not to carry a club that enabled him to get there in 2. Agree however that flexibility goes up drastically if not carrying putter and with the tournament several weeks away there is theoretically enough time to get comfortable with using a low lofted metalwood or bladed wedge. Really would be ideal to know the course to help strategize.
    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.
