Who would land on YOUR Golf Edition MT. Rushmore?  Pick 4 people who impacted your interest in golf the most.  It doesn't have to be the greatest players of all time, it can be anyone who helped you grow your love for the game (Family member, Local Pro, friend, driving range employee, coach, neighboring club rival etc...).

My Golf Edition Mt. Rushmore:

- Tiger Woods - Tiger brought so much excitement to the game and watching his dominance really grew my interest in golf.  The hype of Tiger trying to catch Jack's 18 Major record always kept me glued to the television during the majors.

- My Dad - He got me into the game at a young age and golf has created a special bond over all of these years between us.  Also, now were very similar handicaps so its nice to have a little family competition to gloat about at family dinners.

- Mike Weir - As a Canadian I am very proud of Mike Weirs accomplishments on the PGA Tour and seeing him put on that Green Jacket at Augusta was amazing for golf in Canada.

- Derek (Head Pro at my Local club) - Derek was responsible in turning around the junior golf program at my club.  He held free clinics on Sunday afternoons and was really good at making the game fun for kids of all ages and skill.  He even got me my first job at 15 at the club, those were the best 2 summers as I never left the course.

Now there are definitely others I could have added to this list, but as of today these are my top 4. I'm curious to see who has impacted other TST members' passion for the game.

Thanks! :beer:

L. Trevino, T. Watson, M. Norman, and J. Daly. These guys would be my four. 

Trevino had fun with the game, while playing championship golf. I have fun with the game myself.

Watson because I have had few nice conversations with him. He made time for a fan. 

Norman simply because of his accuracy with his golf clubs. I too like accuracy. I just don't have Norman's distance. I have also  spent a lot of time researching his personal, and golf history. Very unique individual.

Daly just because he's John Daly.

    • Haven’t practiced in a while. Got into a little bit of a funk there. Been playing poorly lately; was going to pack away the clubs for the winter but I committed to an outing for some reason so I’m going to make the best of it 😃 First swings weren’t great. Might have figured out the main issue, though. Backswing stuff, inconsistent club head position at transition. Leads to lots of randomness. Started rehearsing A4 and then slowly bringing the club back to the same position, feeling that I’m set there (kind of a pause or slight delay), and then firing hard.   I posted the swings at real speed because I wanted to see the backswing at real speed. Feels slow to me but isn’t, and I’m not surprised there’s no actual pause at transition. Hit the ball really well like this though, which is promising.
    • Played 18 yesterday. Didn't score well due to some lapses in my priority piece on the course and associated penalty strokes. When I executed the swing I worked on in my lesson and recent practice sessions (mainly the takeaway/backswing), the ball was going where I aimed it. Short and mid irons were straight, maybe with a touch of fade or draw to them. Longer clubs were a little bit of a pull-fade flight. Of course, this is n=1 so who knows if this pattern holds over time. My miss was a cut/fade that starts on target, or maybe a bit pushed, and moves moderately to the right, and comes up short of typical distance. This miss is much more playable than the violent hooks, pull hooks, and shanks I was hitting previously. Overall I'm feeling optimistic that I can solidify these changes quickly, and hopefully get some decent rounds in before rainy season. Another thing my teacher asked me to try was not hovering the club at setup. She thinks it can help with my commitment to my target line/setup. I didn't take this advice as something that is right or wrong, but just a new approach to try and see if there is any improvement. I tend get fidgety with my feet when I am hovering the club prior to takeaway and start repositioning my feet and changing my alignment. I tried it in my round yesterday when I remembered it, but reverted back to hovering often.
    • Up to 7.8; while I feel like I’m playing well lately, the numbers don’t lie, heading in the wrong direction.  🙄
