A) Jason Day or Stenson - I like Jason Day's swing and hes a cool guy in general.  He plays a high draw which is what I aspire to play and he's got a well rounded game when he's on.  Stenson is up there too because of his 3 wood, iron play and unbelievable ball striking

B) Tiger - no explanation needed

Current: Don't really have a stand out favorite player. i like the young guns... especially JT. also a big fan of Henrik Stenson

All time: Tiger. I would like to see another top player show the same attitude towards golf that he did... I feel like a few players have similar talent levels that he did, mostly DJ and Rory, but they don't have the same composure/ferocity/killer instinct. Spieth is probably the closest as far as mentality goes.

Difficult to say.  If we are talking about contemporary persons...I'd say Stacy Lewis.  Don't know why I find myself pulling for her...but I do.  Going way back...how can you not like Byron Nelson?  There are just too many; and I've never met any of them.

1. Jordan Speith: his mental strength and putting are what he does best

2. Seve Ballesteros: he showed great charisma on the course and it is amazing watching him play in the ryder cup back in the 80s

1.  Would probably have to be Spieth.  Young kid with a very mature makeup.  There are a few things I could pick on him about but I think he's great for the game of golf.  Came right when Tiger was on his way out.

2.  I have to say Tiger.  He and I are close in age and I watched him start to dominate as my game was getting better and better.  I only wish he could soften his fall from the top but I don't see it happening.  My second is Davis Love III.  In my early years he was the guy I always wanted to watch...I loved his swing and still do today.  Plus he's a great embodiment of what you want to see out of golfers today.  Very classy and respectful.

1. Spieth. We are similar in age, he's not afraid to show his emotions on the course, good family guy, etc. Close 2nd is Dustin Johnson. We have almost identical body types so I like watching his swing, he just hits the ball 50-80 yds further than me :whistle:

2. Tiger. Some of my earliest memories of watching golf were watching Tiger dominate in the early 2000s. I still enjoy watching highlights from him on YouTube.

Speith - when his putter is on, he's unbelievable.

Nicklaus Palmer Hogan Jones - the most successful player of all time IF you consider how short his career was, and he helped found and build Augusta National and The Masters, there is no greater tournament still!

    • Trip to Oregon was no good, hit the driver terrible so I was basically scrambling every hole. Slowly working my way through my left misses off the tee. Mostly mechanics but also part mental with trusting it on the course. Can't reproduce the miss on the range. Finished one shot out of playoff for US Mid Am and US FourBall qualifiers.  Got a decent lead in our points race. Noticed that as I've been trying to improve rib cage and hip depth that the right ankle and foot would get unstable. Asked my trainer/pt about it and this is what he recommended. He just got certified in a foot program. Fingers crossed but for the first time I can really feel myself winding up the upper torso over a solid lower body. But doing it athletically not just faking it by not moving stuff around. It's the most rib cage rotation I've had going back without trying to force it. I like that I’m doing more work at the joint and that the joint is inside my right ankle at 4. I think the key for me with this foot tripod thing is to keep the right knee over the foot, not letting it rotate towards the middle of my stance. I can feel the "spiraling" effect. I have high arches and when I go into my backswing the foot supinates incorrectly losing the big toe joint contact. Ideally you would want to "build" more of an arch of the foot on the backswing and use that "ramp" on the downswing. This would be another way of explaining it. If the arch of the foot collapses then you basically lose access to the deep front line.  
    • Day 211.  Played 18 today, and really came to life in the second nine.  3 pars, bogey, 3 pars, closed out with two bogeys.   Shot a 39 for the second nine, something I'm not sure I've done at that course before (Hansen Dam).  I've had days where I hit a bunch of GIRs on that second nine, one day it was 7 GIR + 2 near, but I think I shot 40 or 41 on the second nine that day. 
    • And Chamblee said Poulter is the worst ball striker "By a lot" of all the players and Poulter won his singles match by 3 holes LOL...   Best result of the European players and most of the USA players, guess that's what you call an anomaly. Unbelievable how stupid that statement was, the Postman did himself proud....

    • I think I’m playing my wedges too far forward in my stance. That could explain the occasional fat shots and why I tend to hit the ball high off the face out of the rough.
