FWIW, and though I know it's only January… I think they're doing well and actually making some decent technical changes.

    • I've coached and played and officiated several events. I can think of many times when LCP was "through the green" or "in the general area." It may have been more common when the embedded ball rule wasn't in effect everywhere like it is by default now, but it's definitely happened before. I can see it happening more in junior events (my daughter has had this rule in place in the general area, too, before).
    • He's trying to "grow the game".  Can't figure out why Tiger wouldn't see that?  Maybe one day Tiger will see that they are trying to "Grow the Game". 
    • Day 89: Played 9 holes is some windy conditions (30 mph, gusting into the 50s). I was playing it as a 4-5 club wind into it, 2 club wind with it. Actually very pleased with how I played, even though I was +6. Nearly holed out from 90 yards for a 2, played the wind perfectly a few times, and generally good contact.
    • Day 3. Played my first round of the year with my wife, a local 9 hole course. Had some sketchy shots early on including a shank on my first iron shot (Thanks @Vinsk!). I did par a few holes and had a nice 4 iron on a par three into the wind.
    • Few notes for myself:  Extremely important to have a soft/hanging left arm and a de-coupled feeling between the left arm and the entire club. Have played three evening 4-hole loops this week after work and feeling more confident in the driver swing. Have lost only one drive completely to the right.  I continue searching for root cause of this odd high-block-slice-miss root cause, but I believe it has to do with pelvis swaying back moving toward the ball when approaching impact, aka early extension. This in line with my priority from last year's visit to Erie.  Must maintain that flex/springy/ bouncy feeling in the pelvis and left knee throughout the swing and consistent suspension location of left shoulder in relation to the ball/ground through the swing. I am sure it is a feel but it does help in establishing and maintaining a structural suspension point (fulcrum) for the entire swing.      Dynamically, all I think about is 'Swing with patience'.
