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.

    • Thank you, I appreciate it! Yeah I think my handicap is probably a bit lower than 14, but because I wasn't able to get out much last year I didn't want to over estimate my handicap. So far this year I would say I am closer to a 10. My scoring goal for this year to play a full round in the 70s
    • Many days I would walk at or around 90 deg., but mid-90s is to high. I would plan on a 9-holer, ride, or wait until evening to go out.
    • I think it's realistic, not exaggerated. We already know other players out there are impressed by what he's doing but I'm not buying it that they are gonna all go off and chase distance in the way that Bryson is. We might see some guys like Molinari/Fowler make some swing changes to hit it a bit further but I'll go on the record right now saying you ain't gonna see no one else put in the work that Bryson has, no one else is going to transform their body to handle them swinging literally as hard as they possible can. It's too risky and most people don't have the drive that Bryson does. Disagree. We've already had people such as Rory come out and say that they feel their best when they are "lighter". 10-20 years down the road we are absolutely NOT going to see the average weight on tour being 240lbs of lean-ish muscle mass and everyone swinging out of their shoes. We'll see how the rest of the year goes but I really don't see junior coaches convincing kids parents that because ONE dude on Tour (who by the way literally plays the game differently than anyone else) is the blueprint to follow and they have to start gaining mass now and eating 6-8k calories a day to get a Division 1 scholorship. Too much for me...way too much.
    • Yeah, so I've been doing a bunch of takeaway work over the past week or so to A2 to try and fix the overly bent RIGHT arm that occurs very early on in the backswing. You'll notice this in my somewhat recent video with the sand wedge. I'm 99% sure what is going on there is that my chest and arms are disconnected and instead of turning a good bit with the chest/torso I'm really pulling the club back with like 95% arms. I compared this view at A2 to a bunch of professionals and nobody had anywhere near the amount of flex I did with the right arm at this point. As you noted before, I do get a pretty good turn, but I think it happens somewhat later than it should. To tie this in with what you mentioned, when a disconnect like that exists you essentially don't give your left arm the space it needs to continue to freely turn and instead the bicep of that arm ends up pressing into the left pectoral area which causes the breakdown of the left elbow. I think continuing to work on my takeaway to A2 (I might actually start focusing on taking these practice takeaways to A3) and working on the connection between the torso and arms early on is exactly what I need to remedy this. Thanks for the input. It really helps me affirm that I'm working on the right things (along with my work on not early extending).
    • But $12 extra to ride. That's almost as brutal as the heat.  Either I need to get tougher or the weather needs to get cooler.
