  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.
This leaderboard is set to New York/GMT-04:00

    • Bad day all around today, nothing clicking, not just golf. Shitty practice session, but did find a feel toward the end that I might keep around. Feeling was a minute tightening of the left wrist at the top to start transition. It felt to me like a less intense palmar flexion move than I usually do. My previous feel for this was more like revving a throttle, but that seems too exaggerated now and doesn’t work. But a slight tightening/flexing move kind of like trying to get a watch face to move free from a long sleeve shirt or something.
    • I just watched the replay on PGA Tour Live and man was it boring. I enjoyed seeing a course I’ve heard a lot about, but the coverage visuals didn’t do much, and the commentary didn’t add much with regards to course design.  I found the Bill Murray and Trump segments distracting. With minimal production and no galleries, each player’s screen presence (or lack of) really shines. Funny because I do enjoy watching Rory, Rickie, and DJ play in normal events. Don’t know enough about Wolff, but I’d watch him in featured group too. At least it’s golf on TV. 
    • Curious if anyone else feels completely awkward doing the off hand swings. I’ve been doing superspeed for about 10 weeks now and I still feel like a clumsy idiot swinging lefty.
    • At $200 a round, I imagine you'll have the place to yourself most of the time. 
    • Yes, and @ellamia’s writing is just awful, it comes off like a bad caricature of an infomercial. I doubt any TST golf enthusiasts would bite on such garbage. I did a quick google search and the same content has popped up on a couple other well known golf sites, that I’ll leave unnamed. Definitely a shill of some sort.
