Great to see Stenson win.

Can we talk about Schniederjans' ball flight?  My goodness I've never seen someone hit it that low...

I didn't watch any… is there a tracer of it somewhere or something? Video?

Low ball flights generally don't succeed on the PGA Tour. Particularly in majors, anyway.

I think in this case he's hitting low on purpose? Didn't watch w/US Am and Solheim going on. According to PGA stats, only one person has an average height lower than his: http://www.pgatour.com/stats/stat.02407.html

Off-topic, but hey, social media can be occasionally, useful, just gotta know how to filter.

I think it has to stay in the aviary family. Not a lot of flying beagles around… last time I checked anyway.

Ummm, hello!!

I read somewhere that he had tried hitting it higher and had a lot of issues so decided to go back to the low ball flight.

That's the exact shot I was looking for...I think it is his 1-iron.  He hit it 341. :bugout:

Agreed...this is just seemed extreme.  Something definitely worth noting.

72 feet? Wow, that's incredibly low for the PGA Tour. That's ~30 feet lower than the median PGA Tour, and almost half as high as the person who hits the ball the highest. Also, the person who's 4th to last hits it almost 10 feet higher. Really interesting. And while Schniederjans isn't an elite PGA player, he's safely keeping his tour card (39th in the FedEx Cup) and has 5 top 10s.

I love those low ball flights. There is a difference in being a low ball hitter and a guy who chooses to hit low snipes when he wants. Trevino won plenty of majors with a lower flight.

Not Augusta, and that was back in the day when the greens were not what they are these days.

The 1970s were a long time ago.

    • So it's not the position of your hands that affect how much your toe should be up at address, it's just your swing speed and the material the shaft is made from?   I had seen it mentioned that hand position was the most important thing for this but maybe it's wrong 
    • We did some competitive stuff on the Sandbox and the last day I shot about as well as I possibly could.  I shot a 53(par 51) on the final day when we did a team competition. The Sandbox was just and absolute joy to play, and some of the pin positions were very tough to get.  I shot an 80 at Mammoth which was low for me on the one day my driver was behaving, but was mostly mid to high 80s on the other days. I had a few hybrid(it's a 3 cranked down to a 2) shots that were probably my best shots. The par 5 number 18 on Mammoth to just before the green from about 250 out. Same thing on 10(par5) at SV from about the same distance to the front edge. I drilled my second shot on the par 5 number 7 at SV that rolled off the back of the green from 240-250 or so. Unfortunately it rolled into a deep bunker off the back where I took a double. 😂 I saw some pretty incredible shots and a couple low scores taken out there, but that is for those people to share that if they want.  It was just such an amazing time out there, I had so much fun. 176 holes over 6 days, others played even more than that over 5. 
    • Depends on the swing. The club shaft is not straight at impact, even if you match hand position because the weight of the clubhead will cause the shaft to bend, sending the toe closer to the ground. That depends on your swing speed, and the golf shaft.  Its best just to get fitted for irons and use a lie board. 
    • Sounds like you guys had a great time, I loved reading the reviews. I'd love to hear about some of the best shots you guys hit out there, did anyone go super low compared to how they usually score?
    • Yeah. Eastern Michigan is one of the ones I'll admit not knowing. Pretty weak for someone that went to Bowling Green, but they were the Eagles by the time I got there.  Another one I never knew was the NBA Warriors. Before moving to California, the Philadelphia Warriors used a really hokey-looking Indian character. Obviously, they kept the name but changed the logo.     Really. The fact that the teams are pulling these nicknames is proof positive that people are offended by them. If it was still a real argument, Washington Football Team would have never given up that nickname.  The fact that they did is a case-closer.
