  1. Michelle Wie wins on her last shot to avoid a 4 man playoff. It was fun, I got there to see the final 3some on #11 and then bounced around. And, Yes....My I-phone is outdated because I'm cheap and I do need to get a better one that takes better pics. I think I saw HaNa Jang hit the stick (anyway, it was Lydia's Grouping) on a short and gorgeous Par 3 (15) Brook must have had her sister on the bag - same face, same posture, same shape, same same Jessica Korda was dropped the F-bomb about 5 times in a short and happy little convo we overheard waiting to hit on a short Par 4 that she absolutely BOMBED the tee shot. Fun times. Only my 2nd tourney to visit. I got a free umbrella now I have the stupid golfers tan lines. And....If you get a great place to stand and watch tee shots, you can count on the players and caddies to move in the way.....

    Do I need a 60 degree wedge?

    No. Most of us would probably be better off with a Chipper than a 60 degree.
  5. Club Rat


    In the US, players may move to lower handicap competition if the competition has no requirements which may not allow the player. As an example, players who are interested in playing in a USGA Open Qualifier must meet guidelines. At our club level, a player may compete in the Championship Flight if they desire. I suggest inquiring with your Competition Committee or Pro for a better explanation or ruling. Sorry many US golfers are not familiar with UK rules and guidelines of competition.

    Golf balls for my dad!

    I'd recommend Titliest Tour Soft or Callaway Chrome Soft. Both are premium balls.

    Good Day Bad Day Crap

    Bad shots, for me, are a lot easier to swallow when I have a better idea of why it happened. Having seen them on video and associating feels with them, those shots sting less because ok, I have an idea of how to correct.

    I certainly hope not. He seems oblivious to the huge stage; all the great players around him & all the pressure.

    Who Wins First: Rory or Tiger?

    I was expecting Rory's results to be terrible as I haven't checked on or heard from him in a while, but he almost won twice in January. If we're including Euro Tour, then I think I'll give the edge to Rory right now. I think both could have good years though.
  11. You quoted me from 2010. The USGA now allow rangefinders that have slope so long as you turn it off. Before, it used to be that it wasn't even possible. The original Leupold completed a circuit that turned it on. This was illegal even though the circuit wasn't completed and you couldn't "get" the slope. Then the later versions moved the chip that processed it into the faceplate, which was legal, because the actual capability was "outside" or not a part of the rangefinder when the faceplate wasn't on.
  12. My gut feeling is that they may have done more back then. But who knows - in watching something that wasn't PGA Tour golf (the second place finishers were guaranteed a lot of money in the Shell's matches) - you're not comparing apples to oranges. I do think, though, that the idea of "laying up to a comfortable yardage" is more of a 90s-era thing. Kind of about when Tom Kite and Dave Pelz started to have some influence on the set makeup of pros and their wedges. But even with their influence, it's not like every or even necessarily the majority of PGA Tour players are laying up. I still think the majority, and the large majority even, go for it when they can. A better example might be when Billy Casper laid up all four rounds on a par three. That may be a great example of understanding Shot Zones and Decision Maps pretty well.

    Post Your GAME Golf Rounds

    https://www.gamegolf.com/player/nmgolf/round/2002613 Liking this Game Golf thing. Got my first 18 hole round in today Shot 70 (-2). Definitely one of the best ball striking rounds I can remember. Only made one bad swing with the irons, it came on #16 and cost me my only bogey on the day. Other than that I never had to hit a chip or pitch shot the whole day. All the greens I missed, I missed just off the surface and could use the putter. Only negative was I did not hole any putts over a couple feet, all my birdies were 2 putt birdies on par 5s.
  14. Yea that doesn't sound fun at all. There are some weird long stretches of walking from one green to the next tee, too. I can see building this as somebody's personal golf course, but the whole thing makes no sense to me as a public course.
  15. Seems like construction helmets would be required to play there. ;) If I was a super rich guy, though, this is the kind of thing that would be awesome to put in my backyard instead of just a practice area. :)

    • There’s nothing close minded about it. It’s my opinion of your method or definition. I said above how legacies can change by another act. But OJ’s legacy was what it was the day he retired. It didn’t change until a completely unrelated NEW legacy supplanted it. Tiger’s legacy is known. GOAT. He’s still playing. Jim Nantz is another in the same field. His legacy is as one of the best broadcasters ever. Doesn’t matter if he retires in 20 years or 20 seconds.
    • I like it! I'll have to try that sometime!
    • Zander - Hail fellow Minnesotan! I have bought Rmotion about this time last year and think it's a nice tool for the money, especially for us Northerners who only get to play half of the year. This is kinda long but here's my take on it: Cons:  My biggest complaint is that the driving range won't keep a record of previous shots. For example: If you go to GG or 2ndSwing and hit a bunch of shots in their simulator, you get to see a chart with the all the stats from each swing. Rmotion doesn't do that at all. It will show you the results of each swing but once you make another swing, those stats are gone.  The software can't be installed on just any old PC. Check the required specs or you will not be happy with the golf simulator games. The clips for the sensor easy to put on but will get snagged when you put them in/out of your bag. I usually just lean the club up against the wall in my garage until I use it.  Pro/Con This is both a good and bad thing (in my opinion) - To get an accurate reading, you HAVE to set the club head square to your target. Their software uses this 'starting point/angle' to calculate how the ball flies. Let's say you have a tendency to setup with the club hooded (aka closed face) to guard against a slice. The software assumes you're lined up straight down the fairway so you will get some wonky ball flight stats. In this example, it would show the ball slicing every time. So you're forced to setup square to get good results. Which is what we're supposed to be doing anyways so that's why it's a good thing I guess. Foot Wedge has it right in that the software has to make some assumptions for ball strike but it's pretty close in my experience.  Pros: Super easy to use. Just move the sensor from one club to another and tell the software what club you're swinging.  Fairly accurate distances and flight (assuming you have taken the time to setup the specs of your clubs - loft, length from the sensor to the ground, etc) If you install the software on a PC, the golf simulator 'games' can be kinda fun to play. The phone app is pretty nice. I hadn't thought about using it at a dome. I have everything setup in my garage but I can see how that would be a big plus for golfers without a garage or the room to swing a club at home.  I'm on the north side of 50 now and this really helps me keep my golf muscles in shape over winter. 2 years ago I went to Orlando with friends for a week long golf trip. After the 1st day, my back hurt so bad that I could hardly play the rest of the week. After using Rmotion last winter, this year's Orlando trip was a piece of cake! No back pain at all 'cause I made sure to 'play' a couple of times each week all winter long.  Overall, it's good value for your money based on what you get. It's sort of like Optishot but easier to use. I don't know if I'd buy it just to replace going to a dome. But if you can find room to use it at home or in the garage, then I think it's well worth it.   
    • I’ve done two driveway sticks a bit further out and nailed one of them! This one looks better
