You should be proud regardless. You just used all three forms of the word "to" in a single sentence, and all properly.

not everyone can pull off the hat

I suspect he stopped playing so good....   ; ) On a separate note - I am SO GRATEFUL that the announcers are letting me know that the guys' hits are "golf shots". if they wouldn't say

Apparently, Rory led in driving accuracy and approach shot proximity to hole. If he could have made putts, he runs away with this event..

But ... he appears to be a man on a mission even if his putter is not...

The girl friend's Daisy Dukes... with pockets showing and a "wardrobe malfunction" waiting to happen Top had to have been cringe worthy for the PGA.  At least Ricky abandoned his orange for the win. And how about the outdated promo for Mothers' Day featuring Ricky and his Mom. Had to have been a year or more old judging by his long hair in the Promo. Typical PGA... too cheap to film a new Mothers' Day promo? Great golf... BUT you can see the Players Tournament will never equal the class of the Masters!  More on par with a Waste Management Open. Hate to admit it but the girl friend has really changed my opinion of Ricky. Reminds me of the minor league baseball players hooking up with local townies.

smh-

There will always be people who look for the negatives in things - must be something in their wiring.

That was an awesome finish to the tournament.  Fowler goes 6 under on the last 6 holes to get into the playoff.  Sergio has to birdie two out of three to get in and Kisner birdied 17 and had a great chance for birdie on 18 to win.  Exciting day of golf.

I think it was Pat Perez who led in Driving Accuracy and also in GIR ?

agree on the wardrobe choice - pockets longer than her shorts & strapless top was just begging for a wardrobe malfunction.    Side note ... I was at a first communion party recently & there were some 14 year old girls dressed like HOOKERS (or at least what you would expect to see in an 80's hair metal band video) - skin tight skirts practically up to their ass crack & stilletto's honestly, it was kind of funny to see them all stumbling around in those high heels, but disturbing too in a way.    I guess I'm showing my age ... the way the younger generations dress is bizarre to me ... and I grew up in the 80's !!

For the attention he gets, Fowler needs more than two wins in 142 events for me to not think he's at least a little overrated.

IF Perez beat 80.6% in driving accuracy, hats off to him ...

And who doesn't like a fashionable halter top? The color looked good on her ... dark skin,dark hair, deep yellow top. Some guys don't want the button up type. I'm with Rickie.

With all the talk about overratedness, I didn't see the poll results for being underrated - Haas came to mind immediately as did Jimmy Walker (didn't make the list)......surprised that Watson made both lists (under and overrated).

Me: 11%

Bill Haas (above): 11%

Bubba Watson: 8%

Jordan Spieth: 8%

Charles Howell III: 5%

Graham DeLaet: 5%

Zach Johnson: 5%

Justin Thomas: 5%

Other: 42%

Rory hit the ball better (full swing) than everyone else at the Players Championship. I'd love to know how many birdie putts within 15 feet he missed.

Oh and congrats to Rickie Fowler!!!

Perez hit 82.14% of the fairways.

Here are the weekly performance stats from THE PLAYERS Championship:

THE PLAYERS Winner: Rickie Fowler Weekly leader Finish
Driving Distance 295.6 (11) D. Johnson (311.5) T69
Driving Accuracy 62.50%, 35 of 56 (T43) P. Perez (46 of 56, 82.14%) T17
Strokes Gained: Putting .752 (20) B. Harman (1.751) T8
Greens in Regulation 62.50%, 45 of 72 (T51) P. Perez (57 of 72, 79.17%) T17
Proximity to the hole 30'-6" (T3) R. McIlroy (28-1) T8
Scrambling 70.37%, 19 of 27 (10) B. Harman (15 of 20, 75.00%) T8

Usually the leader of the tournament is near the top in GIR's. For Fowler to end up winning being T51 just shows he played smart golf and knew were to miss on the course. His scrambling is 70%, so that clearly helped him make up for it. Still even with T51 in GIR he was T3 in proximity. It wasn't like he was all over the place. Clearly he liked hole 17. ;)

On the final day yes, by a large margin probably. Going basically -8 in the final 10 holes he played was amazing.

On the whole tournament, nope. He wasn't even in the top 50 in GIR for the week.


Sorry for not multi-quoting. When I quoted Crim it bumped me down to the new editing area.. I forgot to scroll up to the area for editing my existing post. oops :whistle:

I didn't see the bit about Billy Horschel speaking to the lady who clicked her camera in his backswing. The article said he was quite upset and would've "ripped him a new one" if it was a guy. Also said Sergio got heckled quite a bit. I wish that wouldn't happen. I can't imagine heckling the guy in a middle of a tense golf tournament. But all in all just an amazing conclusion. Fowler really stepped up.

Rory's proximity to the hole though...he missed a ton of putts within 15 feet.

I don't think so personally. He's been a great ambassador for the game to younger fans, I think that's just one of the reasons for the attention. His performance has been stellar since his swing change with Butch. The results weren't wins but you can't overlook his finishes in the majors and OWGR.

    • Our Junior golf program starts kids at a very young age and the kids progress as their abilities become better. Most will start will the 3 hole program playing from around 100 yards. Then they move back to 150. Then the program advances them to 5 hole rounds. They start at 150 and move back to 200 yards. When they are able to average a set scoring ability they will advance to 9 hole short course and then 9 hole long. During the stages, staff will have instructional days along with fun games they play at the range. Each season consists of a putting contest and a family scramble with award dinner at the end of the season sessions. The program has become very popular as the membership grows with over 300 kids participating. Parents are encouraged to keep scores for groups during the season. Many just walk along and observe and assist when needed. Most kids complete the entire program and they make many new friends. My observance over the years is when kids play, they are learning safe manners and  exhibit a good mannerism learning etiquette and sportsmanship and rules. IMO, kids will enjoy leaning golf with other kids. I enjoyed having my grandson in the program for several years. It also provided me an opportunity to meet the children of many regular golf members who I have golfed with through the years.   
    • I think you keep searching for different things when in reality you need to find your priority thing and work on that until it’s no longer the priority thing.
    • Oops. I should have said 'discarded cigarette lighter' rather than a walnut.
    • I have been doing a drill where I swing with my right arm only (right-handed golfer). In taking the club back slowly with my right arm only to the top and pausing there, I have found that the only real efficient way to initiate the downswing is for the lower body/hips to rotate towards the target. The lower body is needed to tug/pull the upper body/right arm. The momentum created on the downswing of the right arm does not have the left arm to get in the way and stall the swing. I find that the body opens up fully to the target without thought or concentrated effort involved. So practice a full, slow backswing with a pause at the top with the right arm only. Then do a good downswing and the body will be facing the target and there is also some good lag and forward shaft lean.  
    • I would suggest putting up a swing video so that people can assist you better.  In general, very few people can generally have too much hip or shoulder turn.  Most have too little
