You guys are all wrong.  He was actually listening to his Rosetta Stone Spanish "tapes." "El gato es muy grande." "Donde esta la biblioteca."

I watched his interview from today. He said something to the effect of "not wanting to just throw balls in the air and watch where they land" that he "wants to give himself the best chance with the method he's practiced the most." Personally, I think that 3 putt from 3' at Bay Hill messed with him hard.

It'll be his last chance to use it at the Masters - maybe he thinks it's his last chance for another green jacket, since putting well is so critical at Augusta.

The good news is the weather forecast keeps improving. Now the only day that looks bad is Thursday (50% chance of storms). Friday, Saturday and Sunday only has a 20% chance so let's cross our fingers that forecast holds true. It still looks like it's going to play softer than usual....which is why I just called my friend in Vegas and had him put a few bucks on Rory because I think if it's soft, he will be up near the top on Sunday.

I see Gunn Yang is up with BWatson and JRose, 9.24am.  But he is not  listed or marked as an Amateur for this tourney on the bio page.  Yes, he is listed as entered coz of winning US Am tourney but he may have turned pro in the meantime.

Could he have won the USAm, then turned pro, and still be invited to Master's?

Apparently. I believe the rule is the winner of the US Amateur gets to play in the Masters. Not the top amateur or has to still be an amateur.

Really this is no big deal.

Watched Tiger today and he looked the Tiger of old. His short game looked really good from what I saw.

Phil played with DJ, Rickie and Snedaker and I know they had $$ on a few holes bc they finished three of the holes we watched before starting to practice putting and chipping. Phil put on a nice show with his flop shots for the crowd.

What an incredible experience. I feel very blessed to have witnessed what I saw today. It was completely astonishing.

    • The only problem I found on bending clubs are the ones that have little plastic/metal inserts on the back side of the clubs.  Because of these inserts, some local proshops, and/or club builders won't touch them for fear of breaking/cracking/popping those inserts. The owner, in need of an adjustment, may be required to send their clubs back to manufacturer. 
    • Day 478 It arrived today. What arrived was my new driver: a Ping 410 Plus with Alta CB Red Soft Regular Shaft. As I am still getting used to the new toy, I started with all the adjustable parts set to the most neutral settings.  Soon I adjusted to help with a slice. All after that change were straight where I was aiming.  I seemed to have picked up 10 MPH in terms of ball speed.  I need to work now on the results not being so high. I intended to hit only 20-25 balls.  I ended up hitting 45 as this club made driving fun.  It was easy to hit towards  various target greens.  What I need to adjust after a few more practice section I the launch angle to lower the fact that wit my older drive I tend to hit high spin. I rarely, if ever, fall in love with a club so quickly, but even with days of getting used to it ahead, as I said in my review on the Ping web site, it was love at first whack.
    • Was wondering if anyone has played here. Playing the ledgends course. 
    • Totally agree with keeping them standard length to start with. Can always grip down when they are long, but can't go the opposite way. Bending Pings is difficult at best and don't assume you will be able to have it done easily. May have to send back to Ping if you want them bent after the fact but they can do it.
    • Day 28 What a GREAT day!  This is why everyone should have a golf coach! So, about 5 weeks ago I was playing great. Then suddenly I completely lost it. Then I got hurt (non-golf related, but screwed up my game). When I came back from my injury I was pretty close to hopeless.  I got with my golf coach and he and I worked through what all had changed in my swing. It turns out I had made a minor adjustment without realizing it. Then I made an adjustment to counter act that adjustment, then another and another and pretty soon my swing was nothing like what my swing used to be like.  My coach brought up the video of my swing when it was good. We compared it to where I found myself after … I'll call it my melt down. Anyway, my coach was able to quickly get me back where I was before. Suddenly I was striping the ball down the middle again. Yay!  Anyhow, back to today's practice. I hit trajectory drills with the driver. I'd hit a high fade, then hit an 8-iron shot. Next I'd hit a low draw, then hit a hybrid. After that I'd hit a high trajectory drive, then hit a 4-irion. Basically I'd work through the 9 shots with the driver: high, medium and low, Draw, straight and fade combinations. But after each driver shot, I'd hit a different club from my bag, picking the club pretty much at random. I didn't want to hit any club more than one time in a row.  In the end I hit the ball so well on the range I had to run out and play 9 holes. My game has returned, I went 3 over for 9. I hit the ball so much better than I'd been hitting it recently. It felt great.  That's the reason everyone should have a golf coach.
