  1. I agree Brandel is entitled to his opinion and his opinion should carry more weight than any of us who didn't make the PGA Tour. Let's keep in mind that when we provide an opinion there aren't typically any ulterior motives behind voicing the opinion. Brandel is in the business of staying relevant and critiquing Tiger online is a great way to stir up controversy to get coverage by the major media outlets. As for the specific comments, I think Tiger is getting older, his body is changing and he's attempting to make a final swing change that will take him the rest of the way. The new swing will take some more time before he's as good with it as the past ones. None of what Brandel wrote explains why Tiger is having issues with the putter which has caused him as many problems during recent Majors as his full swing.
  2. Yeah, it's so much nicer when some from another continent shouts it out. I think the accent makes it much more charming.
  3. Thanks. Forcing myself to swing at ~80% really made a huge difference. I felt like I had so much more time to execute properly in the transition. Came up a little short on some of my wedge shots but my long irons seemed to be about the same or even longer. I think I learned something important there if I can just get it to stick in my mind. Maybe I should tape little 80% stickers on my shafts down near the hosel so I'm reminded at address, or write it on the toes of my white Trues with a big fat sharpie lol.
  4. I think the point he's trying to make is why do they get exceptions that the ordinary golfer doesn't. Other than when winter rules are in effect I've never seen improved lies allowed locally. As stated earlier, casual water and embedded balls are already covered by rules. If I get an occasional mud ball I have to play it.....my course isn't going to change it for a wet day. Just this spring my dad tried to pull a stunt of claiming "lift, clean and place" on holes that were deemed cartpath only due to excess rain. We later checked with the pro for our own knowledge and the pro just laughed and said no. I remember a few years ago watching an LPGA event on TV where they were allowed relief from thin lies because the course was burned out in a few areas.....Lord forbid they have to hit off dirt like the rest of us.
  5. Ahhh, I see. I also didn't know what they were until I read this. Now I can build reputation and prevent having another child. Awesome thread, it saved me lots of college tuition and possible rehab bills.

    • I’d like to see this evaluation done with the Mevo+. I’d like to know how the horizontal launch angle and spin axis compares to GC4. I do know that for the regular Mevo, the data I get hitting into my net is very similar to what I see in lessons with GC4. Hopefully they get to it at some point. One thing about TXG guys is that I can’t tell how sincere they are - don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the content they create, and watch many of their reviews, but I haven’t ever seen them outright say something sucks, which makes me a touch skeptical of their motives.
    • I thought I heard them say that they'd be doing more launch monitors. I'd guess Mevo will be one of them - if I heard correctly.
    • Day 346 Superspeed workout. Just sticking with protocol 2 until January when the TST superspeed accountability/progress group kicks off. Also did some tempo drills while getting warm for the superspeed stuff. 
    • Day 75 - More swings inside, really focused on the first part of my takeaway.
    • They did do this in an episode, and I believe Mike shot -2, the differential was like 1.9 though. One thing that was brought up to them by a playing partner was it's one thing to carry a 0.0 handicap at a home course, but another thing entirely to do it at a larger group of courses. They said "that makes sense" "good idea" etc., but did not stick to that plan either.
