Well, it certainly seems like McIlroy is really concentrating on letting folks know he's been hitting the weights hard lately.

Working hard in general. His twitter/facebook posts are filled with him either hitting the weights or golf balls. He wants this Grand Slam baaaaaaad. I'm super excited, hope he's in contention on Sunday.

One thing about The Masters is you never know who is going to win it. I'm calling Spieth. I don't care who wins. This is the best tournament hands down. The best part about this year is that I will be there for the Wednesday practice round. Thanks @missitnoonan for scoring the tickets.

Spieth has put six yards on his drives compared to last year (289 to 295), which is really good. One thing that's always concerned me about him is that he didn't hit far enough, which I thought was the reason Bubba ended up taking him down at the Masters. Good to see he's improving his length.

It could be a lefty thing too...Mike Weir won there and he drives the ball 190 lol

Surprised more people not picking DJ. The way he's been playing and the fact he should be able to eat up those par-5s, I see a good week for him next week. The only question with him is the short game. He was destroying Augusta last year through 27 holes and then his short game became a disaster. However, so far this year, his short games seems so much more crisp.

I put 25 bucks apiece on DJ and Spieth and a small token on Louis Oosthuizen, so here's hoping for a good week from all three of those guys.

Oosthuizen is a good pick. If he's in form, he could really do some damage.

You're welcome @CarlSpackler . I was super stoked to have my name drawn for the Wednesday round. Par 3 contest, skipping contest on 16 - it dosn't get any better than that. Unless of course Fuzzy picks me this time to hit a ball at Amen corner #12. He picked a guy directly next to me in 1988 and then the guy hooked it in the woods. That could have been me!

Trip Report.

Ah yes. I shall have some good pics. I can take the camera in Wednesday, but no phone. Hopefully I can talk my wife into parting with her super camera with big zoom lens and rapid fire thingy.

Grade?!!! Wait. I graduated (muffled sound) years ago.

Oh, yeah, pics and a good write-up. It might be worth starting your own thread.

Definitely ... This thread will be so active all week that it'll get buried in an hour. For sure, create a dedicated thread so we can always easily keep referencing your photos. And don't take shitty blurry photos like SOME PEOPLE I know.

Pardon the Interruption totally duped me with their fake Tiger Woods April Fool's story today.  I was like WTF IS GOING ON HERE.  Fell for it.

I must've missed it.

What fake TW story are you referring to?

It said that Tiger Woods had requested to be the first off the tee on both Thursday and Friday morning so he wouldn't be on television.  My first thought actually was that Tiger would never request such a thing, but maybe his agent did.  I was all ready to ****ing roast Tiger for this if it was true, but of course it wasn't.

Enjoy Carl. My wife won tickets and we are taking our fathers. We're driving from Michigan Saturday and going to play 18 in NC Sunday and then play The Landing on Reynolds Plantation on Lake Oconee GA on Monday. My father always wanted to take his father and his dad died at a young age, so it means so much to experience this with him and my FIL. I guess we'll all be able to check one off the Bucket List.

    • So my work has been progressing and now I’m happy with my grip and setup position. I also did the drill where you line up your ball with a line all around it and you make sure it’s rolling nice and tight.    But what got me thinking was this blog post by @iacas     Now I was experimenting with a metronome but I didn’t set it at 78BPM as iacas said he likes it at, but rather at 100BPM where the “magical” 600ms happens. But to actually get a 300ms downswing you need to set it to 200BPM (1beat = 300ms) and that’s just not a proper rhythm for golf.  But if you just leave it at 100 BPM (or whichever number between 60 and 100) you might soon revert to a 1:1 tempo as you will start to sync the backswing to a beat and the impact to the second beat. And you don’t want that apparently. So what I found is an online beat machine found here: Drum Machine online Free full-featured drum-machine for smartphone, tablet and desktop browsers. Create and share... You set it up like it’s in the attached picture.    You start the backswing on the first beat, start the downswing on the second beat, impact on the snare and end the follow through on the third beat.    At first you might want to concentrate on the snare, but later on I realized that it’s better to just notice the snare and concentrate on finishing the follow through on the third beat so that you don’t get into the habit of hitting at the ball but just focus on the tempo of the stroke. 
    • Day 17:  January 25, 2020.  On my way out the door this morning (yes, really) I took the five minutes to take some practice swings and hit some balls (real balls, one whiffle at one point) at my indoor practice area. 
    • You should set a goal to be mentally tougher for 2020...you don't want to be a mental midget and a 5.5 cap who folds under pressure. I also think you can get to a 3.8 cap. I believe you can win your club championship and hope you do. Just think when you win and get called up to the front to collect your trophy at the awards dinner. You can then stare down the 2 women who have won it the past 15+ years and say: "There's a new Sheriff in Town...and her name is Flying Ace" And then you husband can stand up, clap and cheer....Asia Rules Baby!!!.😂🤣   Oh ya....played today with my friend on Chinese New Years in the wet SLOP....2 of my fellow Mainlanders joined us....the one who couldn't speak English had a set of Majesty gold plated golf clubs....classic Chinese POSER's clubs....I've seen many gold plated clubs here...I think these clubs were $10,000-$15,000....PXG...move over. Did not see one white guy playing today...the course was busy....only 2 white fellows working in the pro shop...lots of Asian women playing today. Gung Hay Fat Choy!!
    • Day 26 - January 25, 2020 Full swing work again. This is going to be almost everything that I do. 20 partial swing 8-irons and some time putting with Nat. I might actually take a few days off on the full swing and work on some putting because it felt… a bit off. I also might not have been caring or trying; I tend to get distracted by helping her instead of actually paying attention to what I was doing. The 8Is were about 3/4, with punchy follow-throughs. I could feel when the club would tip out/over a bit early and the ball would go left.
