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!

    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
    • I think he’s making a huge assumption that something he feels makes him do something, will translate to anyone else. I think tips like these come from instructors who confuse the concept of what’s natural anatomy wise isn’t natural function wise if that makes sense.
    • Vantage Point, par. It's nearly a birdie, but I can only assume Zoe Saldana dies, so… needed more loose ends tied up. Actually, I'm not 100% certain of everyone's ties. Whose brother is who? What? Huh? Maybe I just didn't pay close enough attention.
