  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 And, Yes....My I-phone is outdated because I'm cheap and I do need to get a better one that takes better pics.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 takes time to make changes like this. You need to work not only only the shoulder turn with the club, but also your general flexibility and core strength. Yoga type stretching can help, but there are other simple exercise you can do as a warm up to help.  I do them in front of a mirror at the gym to also verify I have a centered turn. I do this one below every time I pick up a club. And be patient. Changes can take weeks to happen. Stick with it, it will change. From this thread,    After I do this, then use a club and check out my shoulder turn in the mirror. It really, really helps. Mirrors are terrific tools.
    • Theres a lot to be said for that.  As a devout Buddhist, I can tell you that just taking life as it is can be a real game changer in a person's life.
    • Welcome to The Sand Trap. New players should really try and focus on making good contact with irons. DG S300 shaft are a bit heavier than the 100g shafts the fitting recommended, but you should be able to use them. 77 mph is average for a 6 iron (if you used a 6 iron to get that speed) and as a new player, you swing speed will probably increase given your size. Your PW distance would indicate stiff is also a good choice. If you want to get better, I recommend posting a video of your swing in the Member Swings section. We can help point you in the right direction for improvement.  
    • Has this guy ever looked at Hogan's swing? 😂 Agree with @iacas, if anything Hogan is doing the opposite. IMO Hogan had more of what's called a lagging club head takeaway, meaning the club head "lagged" behind the hands on the takeaway. I just don't think you can get in these positions with twisting or rolling the forearms while adding extension (cup) to the lead wrist. I agree he maintained or maybe added a little extension in the lead wrist early takeaway, almost "pushed" the grip end back with the heel pad of the left hand. Right hand above left, well away from his right thigh. If you twisted you can't create that amount of width. Look at how the right elbow is well away from his rib cage. Hands and shaft almost inline at 1.5, again don't think that can get there by rolling the forearms early. Right hand on top of left here. I have some thoughts on how this allowed him to get to the top with such an externally rotated right elbow, might do a video on that soon.
    • Hey guys and girls. Have been playing for three months, currently on a 28 handicap, 6ft, 210lbs shooting anything between 93-105. Trying to play twice a week but at least once. I had a club fitting and iron swing speed of 77 mph I can’t remember the numbers on small box. The club pro recommended stiff clubs at least 100g in weight so went with a set of Rbladez with dg S300 shafts in them.  Hitting my PW 145 yards Question 1: Are these clubs and shafts helping or detrimental to a new players’ game? Question 2: Would I benefit more from a set of taylormade burners, Cleveland ta7 or ping G5’s (GI clubs) etc with stock stiff shafts? Thanks
