  2. I have now had this conversation with another person on another forum. I've said things like "the math bears this out." I was then criticized for not sharing the "math" and even "making it up" or just yelling "science!" like a COVID denier (or a mask denier, or whatever…). I haven't quantified the math because I don't know the exact math. We have something like 10x the number of golfers playing golf now than we did in the 1970s. This same person keeps saying that he thinks that Tiger's competition doesn't stack up to Jack's, and will say things like "there are fewer 1A players t

  3. To wear a white belt you must follow the "36" rule: if your waist is larger than 36 or if your age is greater than 36 do not wear a white belt. I read this someplace.

  5. There are several things which take almost no talent to do correctly, and if you can do them, you can become a better golfer and stay a better golfer. These things should be touchstones of a sort, things you check on constantly, but again which take no (or at least not much) actual skill to achieve. These are things even beginners can do. These lists are off the top of my head. Tier 1: No Real Talent Grip the club properly - in the base of the fingers, with the right number of knuckles showing for your swing. Set up properly - weight over the right part of your feet, arm

  6. In the last few months I've started to get more into collecting Scotty Cameron stuff...I've been primarily limiting myself to headcovers and the odd (non-Circle T!) club. I'm more of a fan of the late 1990s/early 2000s clubs though and back in the late 2000s I bought a Pro Platinum Laguna off eBay that had been lightly customized by the previous owner. For years I gamed it with a 2004 British Open headcover...being a Brit and a fan of Scottish Terriers the design was hard to resist. I had long yearned for a limited edition Sterling and Stainless but couldn't justify dropping the best

  7. Yep. You see this play out in the olympics as well. Countries with huge populations dominate across the entire competition. While smaller countries need to be hyper focused on a few events. Volume matters. If you take out Jack and Tiger, two outliers. Lets focus on just America. There was 205 million people in the USA in 1970. There was 295 million people in 2005. Lets say the probability curve is identical for golf skill level (which disregards things like advancement in sports medicine, training, golf instruction, etc..) In 1970, 0.000000075 of people were in the top 15. If you take th

  8. I am very excited for this trip. I have been wanting and waiting to do another trip like this since the 2017 Newport Cup that you and @mvmac made such a great experience for all of us. I will do my best to make it a great and worthwhile trip for all who can make it.

  10. 160 yard par-3 12th at Huron Meadows, middle hole location. Strong wind from the right, maybe 20mph. I hit a solid iron toward the right edge and watched the slight draw combine with the wind. Ended up 18 inches from the hole. It would have looked cool on a "shot tracer." As a bonus, I made the putt.

  11. I just want to say that every time I think of this happening next summer, I get happier than I was the minute before. I think this was a great idea by @cipher and will come at the perfect time. Also, I think we’re going to end up with 12, maybe even 16 people, so just keep adding yourself to the list if you’re pretty darn sure you’re able to go and would like to go if we can accommodate you, but also if you’re not sure, just subscribe to the topic (follow it, using the functionality at the top).

  12. Just a random muse on this - we played the "home" course Friday morning following the Friday scramble guys and found plenty of opportunity to make proper repairs to ball marks on the green. I was pretty much doing a 2 for 1 special, minimum 1, typically 2 on every green. There is a sense of accomplishment when you do it right and see the ground lay back down properly.

  17. I don’t think so. It would require some research. But the only stretch I can think of is 1984-87 maybe? 1984: Crenshaw, Zoeller, Ballesteros, Trevino 1985: Langer, North, Lyle, Green 1986: Nicklaus, Floyd, Norman, Tway 1987: Mize, Simpson, Faldo, Nelson. You can’t stretch it back to 1983, because Ballesteros won the Masters and Nelson the U. S. Open. But Watson at the Open and Sutton at The PGA are different. So that’s 18 in a row. There was a stretch from when Tiger won the 2002 U.S. Open until he won the Masters of all different major champions, Els, Beem, Weir, Furyk, Curtis, Micheel, Micke

  18. This week (Saturday-Saturday), I came close to a hole-in-one twice: This was with a 56-degree SW on a partially-blind 115-yard par-3: And then, today, this was with a PW on a 135-yard par-3: (and, for @iacas and others who have played with me, I actually have to be clear that I made both putts for birdies)

  19. You'll have to go to the Kona side of the Big Island to find better golf, such as the Kona Country Club (only 1 course reopened instead of the two that were there), Makalei (a very steep side of the hill, with huge elevation changes, not everyone's cup of tea, but fun once in a while), Makani, as you found out, or go towards the Kohala resorts (Mauna Lani North and South, Mauna Kea, Hapuna, Waikoloa Beach or Waikoloa Kings courses, and also Waikoloa Village up on the hill by Waikoloa Rd). Sure those can set you back a lot more than $100 (try $300 at Mauna Kea!), but there are deals to be had h

  22. First post on the site and it’s here. I’m in for this. I’m really motivated to work on my game this winter and speed sticks were part of my planned routine. Glad to have an accountability group to keep me on track.

  24. It is just a piece of wood - you can easily recreate them with plywood. They're a few sizes - 12x18 being the most common 'adult male' size (smaller ones are available for those with smaller stances). The general idea is that it helps you quiet your lower body - killing swaying and the like. You basically put it between your feet and use pressure from the insides of your feet to "hold" the board while you swing (obviously releasing as you rotate through). Like many training aids it's just another way to work on a feel for your golf swing. This one is lower body related.

  25. Tier 1 -get to the course at least 15min before the tee time (give yourself time to stretch, loosen up swing, and make sure you have appropriate supplies for the round)

  26. Tier 1 Take appropriate care of the golf course. Replace divots, fill divot holes with sand mix, repair ball marks (properly), rake bunkers (when rakes come back).

    • Got our shots tonight. Moderna vaccine and already scheduled for the follow up shot. Man, but they had things dialed in. Very slick operation and all went well. Many thanks to the folks around the country working these clinics! Except... major side effect! When I went in I had a full head of dark brown hair and when I got home and looked in the mirror imagine my surprise when I saw that what was left of my hair was grey!  Ha! Seriously, no side effects from this shot for me - not even a sore arm!
    • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) A strange movie. Kind of hard to follow along too. Overall, a good dark thriller. I give it a tap in par. 
    • This is what I do as well. When I focus just on the ball, or a dimple on the ball, or a blade of grass, my takeaway gets funky, or more so than usual, and my swing gets all out of sync. 
    • I rarely ever play an extra ball.  if I am on top of the group in front of me and it is open behind me I may go back and replay the hole but that is rare. My preference is to get a true score. The course is to play, the range is for practice.
    • Very possible. I usually play well when I "feel" like I rotate everything towards the target at the same time.
