The moral of this bedtime story for your kids:

"Only your shoes touch the sand until you hit."

 

A pro should know that.

Unless you are Sam Snead and playing barefoot.

That's not correct, though.

It wasn't a bunker. He was in the general area.

Following his first practice round at Royal Melbourne on Tuesday, Patrick Reed...

Yea okay, Patrick. You’re the victim. Get revenge, buddy. 🙄

The fact that a jerk like him won the Masters just shows how absurd the universe is. I’m gonna be rooting hard for whoever he faces off against this week. Apparently my love of America is not as strong as my dislike for Patrick Reed right now 😂🇺🇸👍❤️

I've done from thinking this guy had a rough time earlier in life and was affected by that, hence some of the scrapes he has gotten into.....to just an outright jerk.

I don't even think what he said there was all that bad.   He claimed it wasn't intentional, and yeah it's a competition so you try to use criticism to motivate you.   But what ever happened to "hey, I didn't mean it. I screwed up.  Let's move on, and I can understand why people are upset."

Yea considering anyone decent at this game can tell exactly where they hit the ball on the face for every single shot, trying to play dumb that you can’t feel the brushing of sand away from your ball with a wedge... twice... is just flat out insulting to anyone observing, let alone the entire golf world.

Who said he was in a bunker?

Don't touch the sand.

I’ve tried really hard to like him, but damn, he’s making it tough.

This is where I'm at as well.  Gave him many benefits of doubt and rooted for him, or at least didn't root against him.  Now, when you combine these actions with the almost identical ones from 4 years ago and throw in his comments afterwards, I'm out.  Can't take his side or defend him anymore.

Perfectly legal in the general area much of the time. Practice swings, etc. are fine.

I am aware of that.  He still does not need to be playing in the sand with his club or bad things can happen.

Okay, so, just don't ever do anything ever, lest something bad happen. 😛

It's perfectly legal for him to do a lot more than touch the sand with his shoes in the general area.

He broke the rules.

He got caught.

He was penalized

It cost him something like $750,000 due to the 2 strokes.

He should have called it on himself if he noticed it. I could speculate that he did but I don't know. The 2015 suggests to me he didn't realize it.

I think the bleed over into the President's Cup is kinda overblown...I mean, I get it but it'd be nice to not let that overshadow what this team can do.

    • So let's get right to it. I have probably played 10 rounds this year since the "comeback". Now lets just say there has been some good, some bad, but not too much ugly. The worst score was an 88 and last month on a trip to Orange National I posted between 80 and 86 for six rounds averaging one birdie per round (fill in the blanks with doubles and maybe a trip or two). Since the trip I have seen my old coach and shot some video and most of my issues start right at set-up. Its the simple things that if neglected can do you in before you even finish your backswing. A little work pays off along with a lot of short game practice.  Yesterday was a bit of a break through with a solid 77 based on some great tempo (keeping everything in sync) and keeping my head together. After a double by hitting a bomb into the lone palm tree in the middle of the fairway, I went on a string of pars and on the par 5 9th hit driver-hybrid to the fringe only to 3 putt par and a 40.  I laugh it off and on 10 hit 9 iron to 3 feet for birdie. I keep my head with pars and a few bogeys and then on the par 5 18th hit a lob wedge to 4 feet to make another birdie and close the back with 37 (77). Solid performance from 6500 yards and felt very encouraged as I was using new irons and wedges.  So let's talk about the new line-up in clubs. I was playing the Titleist 735 cms (cavity/blade combo) with the DGS300s since 2007 along with some custom Vokey SM4 TVD 54/60M wedges. The key of this set-up is that I bent the irons weak so that I could play 48-54-60. The 60 was becoming a problem child so I rethought my wedges after a friend gave me a new 50 degree SM6 and it got me thinking about 46-50-54-60. I did a Titleist wedge fitting and found that the 58/10 was more my speed (so much better from all lies and bunker) so I got a SM7 demo club hardly used for a song and rethought the set-up. In the meantime, I pulled the trigger on some 718 AP2s that have the AMT white S300s in them 4-pw. The AMTs are the same profile as the DGs they just get progressively lighter as they go into the lower irons which make them a little easier to launch. Since I hit them half a club longer it was easy to ditch the 3 iron and add the 50 in there as a gapper. I ended up horse trading some items and got the closeout SM7s in 50/8, 54/10 to complement the 58/10 all in S200s. So far the irons and wedges are a solid set-up while the predictability of the DG family.  Now the Razr Fit TA set at 9.5 is solid but its so 2013. The numbers I post are 240 carry but a little high. So my fitter friend sets up a few clubs for me and I really like the Cobra closeout F9.  I just ordered it in the adjustable 9 degree variety with an PX Even Flow white 6.0 (I couldn't demo the F9 with the shaft I wanted because of Covid lack of inventory but the shaft was insane with a different head). My Octane Tour 3 wood is still a solid 225 carry and the Idea Pro fills in reliably between the 3 wood and the 4 iron for great spacing. I really need to wait until the F9 comes in and I work it out before I go any further. Lastly, there is the Scotty Cameron and its not going anywhere! Stay tuned! 
    • I have a R7 5 wood that is 14 years old in the bag.
