    • Going out on a limb but I think this happens when you don't have much 2ndary tilt. Right hand rolls over left much easier slamming the door close faster through impact. IDK, take this with a grain of salt but guys who start the DS with a mini squat get better secondary axis tilt, lead a bit longer with their right elbow and rotate better through impact. For me, if I try to rotate chest open through impact it actually stalls my hips. Not sure why it works the way it does but that's the exact opposite of what I intend to do (square shoulders and open hips through impact).   
    • Guys, it is not like I am opposed to a challenge.  In fact, it does make the game more interesting.  My concern is that badly maintained anything (bunkers, fairways, greens) make for unpredictable results.  I agree that rub of the green will happen even on good courses, but having any bounce or shot be unpredictable is stretching whether it is golf or roulette.  The difference is that on a good well maintained course, the percentage of funny bounces/results from a well struck shot are less

    • While I think Phil should not be playing because of all the reasons stated.  He is endorsing by his mere presence a government that has numerous instances of human rights violations.  As an elder statesman, so to speak, and future a HOF member of the PGA his presence does provide validation to the tournament. But he could have handled it so much better to avoid some of the flack he is getting. He could have used the same turning 50 logic and that he doesn't expect to have an opportunity to play the tournament again, (whether a true statement of not).  But the real response to put things into perspective would be to say... "Unlike the military weapons that have been sold to Saudi Arabia for decades, the products I use can't be used to kill Americans." I spent 30 years in the defense industry and it is pretty amazing what products are sold to foreign countries.  The products are not the latest products, or upgraded version, and lack sensitive USG capability, but they none-the-less they represent some of the best that America has made.  Unfortunately, allies can become enemies is short order.  None of this is directed to a specific administration, party, or to be interpreted as political in nature.  It has been done for years. What is the most amazing part of a Foreign Military Sale is that a branch of the service, say the Air Force, will negotiate a contract with a defense contractor using DOD acquisition regulations to the benefit of the foreign entity.  I was never able to get my head around hearing an Air Force officer tell Americans working for an American company that his job was looking out for the interests of the country of (insert name of country).  It was utterly mind boggling. So, while I agree Phil should not play, hitting a golf ball seems to pale in comparison. John
    • Probably a PhD in comparative women's studies and Social Environmental Hysteria from a California college. Fill them with scotch and we are talking.  I need a ball retrieval tool, a clean rag, a drill and a straw.
