Golf Magazine article on Kevin Na

i thought it was very interesting, especially how his mind works against him sometimes.   The story with Steve Williams is atrocious.   I've not liked him for years, but who does he think he is speaking to anyone like that?  No matter who they are.

Really good article. I've always been a Na fan; I don't have the issues that he has (or had) with taking the club back, but I do understand the difficulties of getting out of your own way. 

Steve Williams is a dickhead.

I always liked to watch him if he was in a tournament I was walking around at. 

I know he was a win or lose pick in fantasy leagues. A for Williams, what jbishop15 said is probably accurate.

I always knew him as the "slow guy" but this helps put things into perspective why he has that label.  I can sympathize.  I let my brain get in the way sometimes, although certainly not for these stakes.  

Williams bit the hand that fed him and had a monster ego by the end.   I'm very disappointed.  He had a ring side seat to history and acts like a jerk.

Steve Williams is the guy who complained about being asked to pick up clubs when Tiger Woods set/dropped them by the bag while Steve attended to something like raking a bunker or fixing a divot. The comments made by him don't surprise me in the least and I don't for a second doubt that they happened.

Kevin Na is interesting, and I've read into him a bit after his Players collapse. My guess is he just has a hard time since he always pushed himself for perfection, so if something doesn't feel perfect it's hard for him to swing (since he wants and expects perfection). The knowledge that something could go wrong makes him want to fix what could go wrong, but he can't (because it's golf), so he has to wait until he's comfortable enough to swing. I used to have that on short putts of around 4-6 feet, until I practiced them enough that I stopped getting so nervous.

I definitely cheer for Na. He is a very good player. He's overcome a lot too. Not a fan of Steve Williams and I'm guessing many current pros aren't either.

I thought it was funny TW asking if Na's buddy was still getting laid alot, and signing the hat to help that out. How does that square with the sex addiction therapy he took? I can't imagine somebody in AA promoting getting drunk. Also, what would Buddha say?

You do not like TW-We know.

Not the same thing.-My buddy is in AA and goes out with us. He does not drink but some other friends do-Quite a bit.

Soooo predictable. If you like TW you gloss over his BS, if not you're a hater? Let's address TW talking smack about sex post 'therapy'. If you were really a fan you would be concerned. 

I did nothing but allude to the sob story, errr I mean addiction, he was spouting after he got whacked by a 9 iron trying to save his marriage. What is it, BS or should we be concerned about him falling of the wagon? And, I don't recall alot of talk about random sex in buddhist literature. 

Yeah, I bet your buddy encourages people to drink.  Does your AA buddy just drive you around and pay for the shots, too? What a deal.

It is as predictable as you bitching about Tiger Woods on a topic that is not even about him.

Asking if someone is getting some action is not driving around buying people drinks.

Grow up buddy. You only ever post here to say stupid shit about Tiger Woods. You are the one with a man crush or something.-I am not concerned.

I still don't really like Kevin. I know that probably speaks more to my character but, I just don't like him. 

I feel the same way about Na.  I just don't enjoy watching him play at all.  I want to see players battle at the end of a tournament, not choke.  In my opinion Na is another example of a player that went professional at too young of an age.  It happens in just about every sport--they spend their life dominating the competition and decide to test their game against players that are just as good, or a lot better than they are.  Once there, they cannot handle the pressure of having to be on top of their game all the time just to keep up.  

That all being said, I do hope that he is able to get his mental game under control.  I may never root for him but he is clearly a very good player and could make some tournaments a whole lot more interesting in the future.

Also, Steve Williams is a prick.

and Steve Williams now has an article saying that tour pros take themselves too seriously.   That's really funny coming from someone like him.   That's like Scrooge saying people are greedy....

I wish the journalists would have followed up on the confrontation between Na and Williams with Adam Scott.

After all Williams is Scott's employee/contractor and shouldn't Scott be responsible for his interactions with other players.

If what Na described in the article is even close to the truth (which William's seem to confirm in the his article) where the hell was Scott?

Is Williams the boss of Scott now?

Maybe, but remember that from his comments, Williams is really the one who wins tournaments.   So why is Adam Scott even there?

    • Hi, is there a preferred amount of hip rotation in the backswing? I have been taught 45 degrees (and then another 45 degrees in shoulder turn => 90 degrees in total), but I can't really see why.  I guess there may be a risk getting the club too far behind you, but otherwise? I experimented a bit, and I can do more than 45, in spite of my age   And it makes it easier to get inside-out and avoid over-the-top. But maybe that's correcting a fault with another?
    • I still have the clubhead speed to hit a 3 iron cleanly, but it isn't as consistent as I want it to be.  I have now dropped the 3 and 4 iron and replaced them with a 4 hybrid.  There is a bit of a gap between my 4 hybrid and 5 iron, but overall I am happier.  Another of my regular four ball has a 7 wood, and finds it to be his most consistent club and gets him out of troublesome lies. You have definitely done a good thing.  Though dropping the hybrid is more debatable, but if the wood is more consistent, go with it
    • I imagine the loft is more like an old school 7 wood. Heaven Woods! 🙂 
    • Whatever works right? So what are the specs on this lil gem?
    • Yes, a 9 wood. Picked up a new TM  M6 9 wood on a whim, and at a price I couldn't say no to. I have been hitting it much more consistently than my 4 hybrid or my 4 iron. Much steeper angle of descent, this club does a much better job of holding greens at that 180-190 yard range that was always difficult to get any bite on in my advancing years. And I got rid of that darn hybrid hook. I can take the ribbing from guys asking if I want to move up to the ladies tees. They shut up when they see the results.
