  1. They've done this before and it's not as low as you might think it would be. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/01/AR2007070101221_2.html Good read.

  2. I'd like to make a suggestion to the Augusta people: Quickly write into your tournament by-laws a contingency tradition; if the son of a former winner wins the tournament, his dad gets to present the green jacket in place of the previous years winner. I don't think anybody would mind. Just sayin ...

  3. Yeah, a bit. Mostly in your shoulders/torso. Hips are close to square. Knees seem fine. Tough to say given the dark clothing but I wouldn't expect to see your left arm under your right. Just let your right arm (elbow) soften a little. That'll help close up the shoulders a bit. And it helps with some backswing stuff too, typically. So your last setup thought could be "soften and close" as kind of a one-step thing.

  5. One main reason or I should say theory why the demise of attendance and participation in golf in the 21-39 age group. This age group does not care for time commitment- 5-7 hours depending on travel and warm-up, they are too busy spending 250 bucks a month on cell phone, cable and internet charges today to consider joining a club- For most of us none of theses costs existed 20 years ago. They have ongoing careers, longer commutes, starting familys/marraige/buying homes/cars/vacations. They did not grow up with golf as a family based activity, instead these kids grew up with soccer and video ga

  6. Crap, Erik sniffed us out of the old chat room hehe Let's see, I got my stream on the Bubba group at the moment. I got my very unhealthy lunch laid out before me in all its glory. Life could be a lot worse right now, I think. Oh yea, as the day 1 leader in the Masters contest, and thus, unlikely to win the event (Brandel Chambell led after one round too), I did some quick digging and here is the list of all the past Contest winners at theSandTrap: 2012 Masters -- @VforVendetta , runner-up: @darkstar76 2012 PLAYERS -- @Matthew Brett 2012 US Open

  7. Logical fallacy. The claim that the best players are there does not imply that every player that is there is among the best. Hence your citations of O'Meara and Stadler as an argument that the field does not contain the best is wildly misplaced. Yeah, I can. The UEFA Champions League champion automatically qualifies for the Champions League in the following year even if they did not otherwise qualify. One big difference is that when this occurs, and it has, it knocks out a team that HAD qualified from the Champions League. For example, if Chelsea wins the Champions League b

  8. You're assuming the cause is work and not higher priority activities in life such as spending time with family, taking care of younger children, running kids to after school activities, attending kids sporting events, or taking evening college classes. The role of men has changed significantly over the last 20 years. Men are much more involved in home life today than their fathers were and the increase of dual income families requires both parents share the responsibilities in the home.

  10. There has to be a qualifications cutoff and it is what it is. Glover earned his ticket by meeting one of those cutoffs. If those "better performing players on the tour" continue to perform at a high level, then they will earn their invitations for next year, something they have failed to do for this year's competition. It's really quite simple. Since the amateurs never win, maybe they should be cut out of the field too? The past champions are rewarded with an automatic invitation. It's just one of the perks for winning, and it's a Master's tradition - the Mast

  11. The best (save for Tiger Woods) ARE playing in this tournament. Kevin Na isn't one of them.

  12. As a lefty, women aren't going to get much sympathy from me. It's about the numbers, there are less women and lefty players so manufacturers don't offer us their full lines and stores don't buy much stock for us either.

  14. The state of golf is fine..... With regard to leagues, I will never play in one........NOT EVER. When I play weekday evenings, I make damn sure I am in front of them........... I can loop around and play 18 in the time it takes them to play 9. I want no part of that league play/slow play clusterFK.

  18. Rick, Practice is a great key as was stated above. also check out this video, http://thesandtrap.com/t/39411/quickie-pitching-video. I also think it helps if you focus on your target and use a repeatable routine. When chipping or pitching, I look at where I want the ball to land, whether it is a chip and run, pitch or flop. I keep staring at it when I address the ball. Then I aim the club face to the target, look back at the target, then head down and execute. No time to think about technique or second guess, which may contribute to yips. If I do any practice swings, it wou

    • You’re right. @onthehunt526 didn’t realize how bad the lie was (see above where he quoted the app indicating “first cut” when it wasn’t), so I think that’s where he was going with that statement. I mean, he’s right, if the lie wasn’t as bad as he thought. 
    • Day 3: Did more of the same stuff working on backswing priority piece, with LVP camera. Bought a net that’s supposed to go up/down easy, and measured my mat to cut it down to more portable strips for new practice area. 
    • You may as well say that not trying to carry a ball 370m over water on a par 5 isn't going to win you the tournament if you need eagle to win. Are you seriously suggesting that Oosthuizen does not realise that 3 is better than 4 and that  4 doesn't win? So...in a press conference you would ask him why he laid up and he'd say "I had a better chance of holing out from 80 yards than making a putt like I did on Saturday"? Come on. There is no hypothetical scenario here. He did all he could do. 
    • I forgot how he reacted to the eventual birdie.  Probably the most disappointed "I just made a birdie on the 72nd hole of the U.S. Open" ever.
    • Yeah, I agree. He would’ve went for it  if it was in the first cut, sitting up, or in the fairway—no question. If you put it in the drink from there, at least you went with the right shot under the circumstances and tried to win the tournament. He probably doesn’t eagle though because it would’ve been so hard to stop the ball on that green. But then again, maybe he makes the Tiger putt from the back of the green (not the “expect anything different” putt).
