  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 And, Yes....My I-phone is outdated because I'm cheap and I do need to get a better one that takes better pics.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. :)

    • I practice with long/short irons off a dry lake bed some times.  Ball in the middle part of my stance. (My sternum is my stance center) Some folks will have the ball back in their stance, and some forward. Just depends on where their swing's consistant low point is.  Hands some what a head of the club head at impact.  The trick is to hit the ball first, and not worry about a divot after impact. Who wants to take a divot off firm turf anyways? It takes practice to hit this type of thin lie shot. Part of the learning process is knowing where the club head is in the swing.  Once I learned this thin lie shot, that's all I ever hit anymore from the fairway. "Thin To Win" as the saying goes.  I'd probably start off practicing slow swing pitch shots, and go from there. Punch shots are good starting point too.  As you start making better contact, increase your swing speed.
    • It was maximum effort to try to hit a 6 iron slow enough so that it goes 120ish. 
    • Seeing as how I started last month, my 2018 goals are to get through Q-School, win my first PGA Tour Event, and last, but the not least, qualify for the 2019 Masters.   Now when I'm awake lol ... I would just like to consistently hit the ball straight. And if I'm able to do that well these next few months, I'd love to enter a tournament, just to get the experience under my belt. Competing in Tournaments (particularly National ones), with success, is my overall goal.     
    • Actually 18.3, but I’m gunning for single digit this season 🎯
    • I won't speak ill of your instructor, but learning about the things you're doing wrong isn't necessarily productive.  Ideally, you should leave each lesson with one, no more than two, specific things you're going to work on when you practice.  You might have drills or slow movements to practice, but you shouldn't be loaded up with multiple changes all at once.  Video can be a really useful tool, both to demonstrate what you're trying to change, and to take on your own to verify that you're actually making the desired change.  I suggest you talk with your instructor to make sure you understand what your "homework" is at the end of each lesson. And yes, I'm still working on my game.  I got my first instruction in more than 20 years through my own Swing thread here, and a little more when @iacas visited my club for a TST outing and Aimpoint classes.  A year later, I'm still working on the changes recommended, and making slow progress.  Golf is hard, but its a lot of fun.
