Was watching the Memphis broadcast and they analyzed Dustin Johnson's swing. He really takes the ball way outside. The analyst said he thought faders have a high right hip, more than drawers of the ball.

I would think that they could drive traffic to their web presence by taking advantage of the excellent swing talk they do. After all, who's watching golf on tv except golfers?

Nah, the other guy. I listen to what they say, but am watching closely. I'm trying to put together all the individual parts of ball striking, for my own benefit. A collection of all the swing replay videos would be a great tool for me.

I would think you could find a number of analysts or teachers who a large number of people would agree is terrible. They are all pretty much saying the same thing, just in ways sometimes people find terrible. Unless they stray completely off the page, and then everybody says they are terrible! I'm unaware of whether anybody on TV is bad or not. I have my own drummer going on in my head.

Why not just look them up on YouTube?  Save the ones you like to a library.

Look, pay a guy $60K a year to put up the page, edit the video, etc. Not like CBS is begging for hand-outs. Creating a job, man.

Sounds like a great way to lose about $55k.

You are my new best friend! Exactly what I was hoping to find. Thank you, universe.

Last week, I was watching DJ run away with it and they analyzed his swing. I checked a video of me. Hmm, what a difference in the hip turn. Yikes. Cool!

The analyst said his left hip was higher than the right hip. People with the left hip higher tend to fade the ball, while players who have level hips ten to draw the ball. I don't know whether this is right or not, but I stopped fighting my natural tendency to fade the ball.

A rounding error. Let's see some numbers. Advertisers would reach me, on the CBS site which until now, hasn't reached me. How much am I worth? Not much, alone. But that's not the way it works, is it?

Now that I've been shown a way to access them easily, booked marked, baby!

It's not their teaching, it's the insights I might get. They get paid a lot to know what they are talking about. What's another few thousand?

Hence the $5k in revenue I attributed.

People aren't clamoring for these things, especially when they're available elsewhere (and free).

It'd be stupid to just throw away $55k. That's not how good businesses operate.

There may be other terrible teachers but they aren't on cbs, it's also what is wrong with golf instruction for every good instructor you have 9 others who have no idea what they are talking about. Kostis doesn't even know the ball flight laws let alone how to make a functional golf swing. I think there is a whole thread here somewhere talking about how terrible he is.

    • Day 85: A bit of putting practice after getting home from a long travel day. 
    • I am still searching for a “drop in handicap.” My game seems to be improving but I am still not scoring lower. Can’t explain it.
    • I remember going through those types of situations. A combination of perhaps a fear of damaging the beautiful turf and not having some taller grass to support the ball up off the solid ground. Hitting out of the rough allows more leeway or room for error. during one such period I went to the range and spent quite a while brushing the turf between each shot to get familiar with what I had to work with and get comfortable with a tight lie. eventually you will come to realize that it really comes down to developing a consistent low point to the swing through lots of practice. 
    • Day 116 (23 Oct 21) - worked w/putter and straight edge.  Used both the DF992 and White Steel #5 - big difference in feel.  Drills were to overcome the push I tend to see.  More work needed, but the straightedge does provide the right feedback. 
    • I have been playing on a couple of inexpensive courses to learn , I played on an expensive country club course today and the fairways were in better condition than the greens at the courses I usually play. Very short grass.   I had a very very hard time hitting off these fairways ,  I had been getting into a groove on the lesser courses and my play was rapidly improving with my off fairway approach game being the best part of my game. I went from hitting at least 10 80 to 100 yard shots in a round onto the green from the fairway to hitting maybe 3 of 13 of them today. My hits were a medley of ground balls , tops, and other disasters.    The only grass range I have access to has very coarse rough type grass , should I just practice taking some exaggerated divots on it ? I read about playing a tee 8” or so in front of the ball to practice hitting ahead of it. Open to any other suggestions. Today was humbling.
