David Feherty Sunday at the Shark Shootout when Charley Hoffman chunked his chip: "If he would have hit any farther behind that ball we would have had to add it to yesterday's score" 😂

This is funny, because both of the two quotes listed so far aren't really true.

"A bad attitude is worse than a bad swing." 

Someone with a bad attitude and a great golf swing is going to produce better scores than someone with a great attitude but a horrible golf swing.

People make it on the PGA tour because of their physical skills, not because of their mental skills.

Here's 16 pages about the mental game and it's relative lack of importance

That's funny. I took the quote to mean something completely different. I wasn't thinking of it as how to shoot the lowest score. I was thinking of it as who would Payne rather spend time with? Or would who Payne rather have in his foursome? In my imagination Payne doesn't want to spend time with either, but somebody with a bad attitude would be WORSE than somebody with a bad golf swing. Like maybe Payne can help the person with the bad swing, but there's nothing he can do for the person with the bad attitude.

I've always like Lee Trevino's quote

“You don’t know what pressure is until you play for five bucks with only two bucks in your pocket"

There should also be a quote about the walk of shame one makes on their way to an ATM after a round.

I have probably posted this before, but it's still funny. 

Golfer to Caddy: "can I get there with my 7 iron"?

Caddy to Golfer: "Sure you can....eventually".

There are tons of extremely talented golfers that don’t make it due to folding under pressure and that is 100% mental.

I don't think there are as many as you think, but this isn't the topic for it.

Let's stick to some golf quotes, not debating topics with several topics already dedicated to their discussion.

I read it from Lewis Grizzard, but he probably modified it from somewhere else:

Playing St Andrews badly, and missing a shot with a club the caddie suggested, the player said,

"You must be the worst caddie in the world!"

To which the caddie responded,

"That sir, would be to great a coincidence!"

I saw one from Tiger Woods that kink of made me giggle. 

"Achievements on the golf course are not what matters, decency and honesty are what matter."

Kind of ironic in light of what happened with Tiger.

I have absolutely no idea where I heard this, but it definitely is not mine.

"There are two parts to golf. One part is fun. The other is putting."

Can anyone places this for me?

    • So I had some time at our indoor facility and Trackman.  I put the Swingspeed radar down to compare it next to Trackman to see what the difference in numbers were.  Had some interesting (and strange) results. First I hit some 7 irons to warm up.  On trackman I averaged about 85 MPH but the Swingspeed was registering around 78/79...so it was consistently lower. When I hit driver I was averaging around 102ish on Trackman but the Swingspeed radar was consistently around 110 or even higher.  I hit 105 on Trackman but topped out at 115 on Swingspeed.  I'd say that Swingspeed was averaging a little under 10 MPH higher with the driver but it was 6 MPH lower with the 7 iron. Has anyone else seen results like this?  I was left slightly confused.  When I've done fittings in the past and been on Trackman I was normally in the 100ish range so my swingspeed is definitely up a little bit but not as much as I thought it would be.

    • Day 392 - January 25, 2021 Good 45 minutes or so today. Maybe 50 balls, maybe a bit more. Added a little wrist hinge to help the club feel like it's gone back far enough sooner. Also helps the elbow fold a bit more.
    • More putting at 3' - 4' - 5', focused on not lifting head to look.  Some focus work on weight shift in backswing through downswing - teaching the body to shift and not stay on the back foot.
