  1. Hi Phil, I'm simply someone who loves the game of golf. I pass along sound advice to those who request assistance. My hope is that the golfers seeking advice can improve and as a result, better enjoy the game of golf. My bullet D suggestion for Kirby12 was based on my opinion that he could attain a more repeatable backswing if he allowed momentum to naturally carry his arms and club to the top. I acquire my golf knowledge from extensive study and analysis from over the years. If you want to know more about me, please refer to my Sand Trap profile. Yes, if the club, arms, or any object which contains mass is in motion, it has a state of momentum. (P=MV for linear momentum & L=r x p = r x mv for angular momentum). Therefore, a club head that is in motion posses momentum in the backswing. Before you attempt to humiliate me further with your condescending tone, would you mind reviewing Shawn Clement's "Takeaway and Starting Swing" youtube video from my post #3? Fast forward to 1:21s where Shawn discusses using the pivot of his body to toss the arms [and club] into the backswing. He continues by explaining how momentum naturally lifts the arms. If you choose to use muscle action in your takeaway because of your particular golf swing method, that's perfectly fine. But keep these two things in mind. 1) Remember that there are various methods to swinging the golf club, even though it's not your approach 2) Even if you do not feel the momentum of the club in your takeaway, it does exist. And for your information, Shawn Clement is highly regarded in the golf community. Jeff Mann (another golf expert) seems to believe so with his very positive review paper of Shawn Clement's teachings. You can read it HERE. And finally Phill - I'm going to report your post to the administrator as your patronizing tone does not seem to follow an implied code of ethical behavior required for a forum where ideas are shared, discussed, and respectfully argued. You should have sent me your message privately. Thank you for making me feel so unwelcome Regards, MPS67
  2. The Tour Championship is the only event airing on network television. In the comparing ratings battle, it's already won.
  3. My goal when it comes to approach is to chip my ball within 3 ft of the hole (a la Phil). And of course single putt my way out. This should be an expectation of someone wanting to improve their game. You have to be confident in your short game to get you up an down the greens. I spend a large part of my time at the range practicing my short game, and putt a lot in my house (and the range). Focus on a consistent stroke and plant your chips in a three feet circle around the hole (start with 6 for a wider range). Then work your putting from 15ft - 12ft - 9ft - 6ft - 3 ft. This gives you a good idea of your speeds around the green and how to control your putts under pressure.
  4. If chunky, middle aged, and don't look like 30 lbs lighter and 20 years ago they were any more attractive is your definition of golf hotties, then you got me...

    • Unless they lied directly to me, they weren't. Jordan was a slightly above average length driver whose biggest skill was accuracy off the tee given his distance AND his approach shots. I doubt it. Those photos don't look all that different - except the camera angles. If someone has videos, cool. Otherwise… those two photos are nowhere near enough to say. Jordan's been on GEARS, and he's got his swings from 2017 on there too. Maybe even the 2015 swings. They know what is different now from then.
    • Sorry I offended you iacas.  I will stop
    • One of these topics is enough, @phedrick. I also don't know how much of that is the "golf gods" and how much of it is just normal fluctuations of a golf game that could use some work.
    • Phedrick... I think your experience(s) are almost universal.  Years ago I'd shoot a great round, with great feel and consistency... I just knew I had arrived, that I had achieved a new level, that I had it all figured out.  Two days later I'd go out, full of enthusiasm for my newfound game, and play awful.  As we progress in this game it is not a one-way door.  Death, taxes and going backwards in golf... all universal truths. Now, years later all I can say is that my good and bad days/scores stay closer to my mean.  I think that is all you can expect.
    • I played a around today. I decided to give my 'Evil club of hate' a try.  It was going really well.  She/He/It was playing nice with me.... UNTIL it came down to a point where I might break a personal record..... You fool, you fool, you silly fool..... SHOULD have known better...
