With the Tour Championship less than 10 days away...here is a good way to start the tournament conversation....the breakdown of what each player needs to have happen if they are to win the Fedex Cup.

Season finale almost underway. Friday tee times will reflect scores rather than being jumbled from Thursday, like they normall just do for Saturday and Sunday. So we'll see new pairings tomorrow.

Funny situation with Schauffele that I haven't seen before.

He hits a ball into the OB fence and it bounces back, but ends up close enough to the fence that he doesn't get enough space for a swing. He sets up left-handed and does some practice swings, then asks the rules official if he can take a drop since when he's trying to hit it left-handed, there's a sprinkler head interrupting him (I didn't see if it was stance or club). He called in a second opinion and was allowed to take relief. After dropping, he's now in a position where he can hit the ball right-handed and proceeds to do so and ends up making a bogey.

Not an action you are able to to very often since you need the obstruction close enough to interrupt, but certainly useful to know for the pros.

Tiger starts off with a bogey. Tradition is tradition. Gets it back with a birdie on five, one of his longest putts today.

The greens are quick and the rough looks a bit tough and grabby. GIR might be king this week.

Tiger's driver and irons have been on point. He's putting like Stevie Wonder

A flashback to 2002, where Tiger and Phil tee'd off in the last group at the Tour Championship:

Pretty decent stuff - glad to see Tiger and Rory in the mix.  And Rickie.

Bryson making a mess of it.

Lots of golf remaining.

 

And this - just because

Tiger got his bogey out on the first hole and delivered a great 65 round after dropping a 27 feet putt for eagle on 18. Loved watching that one go in!

310 driving distance. 10/14 fairways. 14/18 greens. 1.7 putts per GIR. 2/2 sand saves and 100% scrambling. Gained strokes on all stats.

Currently tied with Fowler. If the result stands, they will head out in the last group tomorrow. He went out on fire last tournament, then cooled down on Friday. Let's see if he can keep it going this week.

Now that he's in the Peach State, wearing a peach colored shirt, things are going peachy. 😛

Didn't watch the telecast, but based on the few swings I've seen on social media, looks smoother.

    • Not really the topic for it, but group lessons can be good in that they lower the pressure, but the obvious "bad" parts are that the individuals don't get the same amount of attention as they would get individually. Adults often do them because they're cheaper, they can do them with friends, and they are less pressure. Kids often do them because they're good babysitting. That's not the point I was making at all. My point was that beginning golfers don't get to face a "beginner" opponent - the golf course and the equipment is pretty much pro-level right from the start. Beginners in cricket would not fare very well nor would they develop any good habits at all if they faced professional cricket bowlers right from the start, but unfortunately that's basically what happens in golf - they're given a golf ball, a driver, and a hole that's 4.25" away. About the only concession we make as "golf" is to sometimes tee them up 150 yards away instead of 450 yards away, but the actual act is still incredibly difficult, with virtually no margin for error. Cricket and virtually all other sports: Have a simpler motion with shorter implements at slower speeds. Have more margin for error. Are played against other human beings, who can make mistakes and who are, particularly when someone is starting out, often at about the same level. Golf: Has a complex motion with longer implements swung at higher speeds. Have virtually no margin for error. Is played right away to a 4.25" hole 150+ yards away. 🤦‍♂️ I think you've completely missed the context, not to mention the bit about meaning no offense. Being happy to shoot a 92 doesn't mean you're a bad person, your handicap is not a value judgment of any kind. Hell, half of my students probably started with me when they were at your level or worse. It's not a value judgment of any kind. But it does shed some light on your perspective here. It does lend weight to how strongly others might wish to weigh your opinions. Imagine if this was a court of law, and you were called to the stand as an expert witness. What insights could you offer into what it takes to play golf at a high level? Have you been a single digit golfer within the last 20 years? Ever? Have you been a 3, with a small but annoying miss, that required a few months to iron out? Something you couldn't see with the naked eye, that maybe required the use of a little technology to see or measure? I don't know the answer to these things. I guessed at your age based on the year in your email address. For all I know you're 88 and you were married in 1967, and so shooting 92 right now is pretty good, but back in the day you maintained a +1 handicap. I don't know. That would certainly give a bit more weight to your opinion, wouldn't you agree? Think about how this looks from my perspective. You're a 22 handicapper, and I'm a +1 and a pretty good instructor. You're posting here telling me (and others) a bunch of stuff about what makes for a good lesson and how people truly get "good" at golf. If I am right about the 51/22 stuff… (and tell me if I've gotten it wrong, please), imagine walking into an auto body shop having flipped through the pages of Car Mechanic magazine and telling the guys who worked there all about what's wrong with the auto body industry. Or talking to a bunch of Fortune 500 CEOs about how they should run their businesses because you took a few college business classes. Your opinions might be weighed a bit - outsider perspective is by its very nature often "fresh" and different - but most likely, what you don't know would limit the applicability and merits of your position/opinion. (And trust me, man, I hate bad instruction more than you probably do, and I would agree that there's a ton of it out there.) Because, like in my golf lessons, I like to tailor whatever I'm saying to the audience, to the person I'm talking to. Admittedly here I'm talking to a few people, anyone who might read this, but I'm also trying to understand where you're coming from, and I'm talking at least a little more to you than the others who might read it. You want to know how someone else put it? That's how someone else put it. And your reaction to my questions above, which again, man I trademarked the phrase "Golf is Hard®" - it is, I get it… anyway, your reaction to that doesn't dissuade me from agreeing with my friend here. What are your qualifications for telling us what a "good lesson" is? What are your qualifications for telling us what it takes to be "good" at golf? That's not to say you need a sparkling résumé for each of those. If you've taken lessons at all, from anyone, you will have opinions on what makes for a good lesson and a bad lesson. And that feedback and those opinions are welcome; I welcome feedback from all corners, from anyone who has something to say, new or old, rich or poor, +6 to 36 handicap… etc. But understanding where you're coming from helps us to understand the context of your opinion. If I'm right about the 51/22 stuff… maybe we're not that far off here. In other words: If I got the 51/22 stuff wrong, then please correct me. Please share some background info so that others know where you're coming from, and what your perspective might be. Being a bad golfer isn't a value judgment. I teach bad golfers. I don't think they're "bad people." The game is ridiculously hard. The first chapter in LSW says that an alien would probably imagine it would take 30 shots to get the ball in the hole, and we're ticked about doing it in 5 or 6. You skipped over all the actual content of my post because you chose to be offended by something that I took the time to write out a few times that was not written or intended to offend at all.
    • I’ve seen plenty of professionals in Cricket draw a “duck” (Bowled out on the first ball with no runs more or less).  It’s not an easy game. In fact it’s a very difficult game. Fast balls arrive at nearly 100 mph, often with an unpredictable bounce, deliberately delivered long and short of the wicket to vary the height on arrival at the batsman.  Spin bowlers can deliver the ball at 70-80 mph but deliver the ball so that it dramatically changes direction directly in front of the batsman after the bounce.  The change in direction happens in roughly 1/10th of a second after the bounce.  Add to that the impact of changing wicket conditions which makes a massive difference to how the ball performs.  Make no mistake cricketers are amazing athletes and the game requires very quick reflexes and excellent hand-eye coordination.  You could debate whether or not it’s easier or harder than golf I think.  Ok pal I won’t waste anymore of your time. Take it easy.
    • For me football is the most interesting sport to watch.
    • Day 155 Despite my poorer day of practice, got out to play 18. The results showed a hangover from yesterday.  50 out  47 in.  The out nine were mired  by 6 penalty strokes.  I was not sure I could hit two in the water on drives!  But, I somehow did 6 GIR with 9 Fairways, so somewhat acceptable there.  Chip shots were so-so as many left me with far too many too long putts that tested me. Putts were inconsistent as well! 37!  While it come out to a smidge over 2 per hole, that stat hides a few 3 putts. Not sure if it were just the stiffness I still felt from yesterday or misjudging the speeds. While the round of 97 was far from my worst round of 2018, it was most frustrating because of how solid the previous one was.  Still, given my progress over the past 12 months, I should be ok.
