  2. When Arnie was alive, yes. Just like the Byron Nelson Tournament. Fields are not what they were when the hosts were there. Sad, yes. True, yes. You imply that 8 of the U.S. top 10 are being disrespectful to Arnold Palmer because they aren't playing. I don't think that's fair at all.

  3. What is a reverse overlap putting grip (and how can it help your game)? A surprising amount of golfers don't know what a reverse overlap putting grip is. Here's the rundown on the grip that Tiger and Rory use.

  4. Me too. You should always bring your current gamer with you to test side by side with what ever you are considering. Too generic to be of much help. Having said that I always read them cover to cover. I enjoy learning about what's out there. Even id I don't plan to buy anything for the next 5 years. Incidentally, I do the same thing with Automotive reviews. I find them interesting, even though I only buy a car about every 10 years.

  6. Just turned on Round 1 and V. Hoveland was putting, using Aimpoint on a short putt on #16. Distance @ 4 feet. The commentators decided to briefly discuss AimPoint and one of them, not sure which one, said AimPoint was over his head. I read a lot on AimPoint and I feel I understand the concept. Not sure if I can APPLY the system but I understand it. For the record, Hoveland's 1st putt was @ 24 feet and he used AimPoint on it and that left the 4 footer that he sunk for birdie. Overall looking like it could be an interesting tournament.

  8. Today’s work with driver and six iron. Making some progress but still extending a bit at the start of the downswing. Shaft is flatter at A5 but needs to be a bit flatter. I do the drill in the first part of the videos, then a full swing.

  9. I've played all of these courses in the Cancun area, Mayakoba was the best of the bunch, the TPC course was probably the worst conditions wise, the layout was nice. Riviera Cancun and Iberostar Cancun were both very nice. Riviera Cancun Mayakoba TPC Cancun Iberostar Cancun I'm up to 390 courses (probably a little light) over 24 states, and 4 countries (Mexico, Canada, South Korea and the Philippines)

  10. 70 for me. I played Mayakoba. It was immaculate and had some great views of the ocean. But perhaps that's the WGC course you already thought of? I was young and stupid and fooled by a guy in the airport offering me a free round at a Nicklaus course. Showed up with the coupon and they ushered me through a time share presentation. Blew half a day of our honeymoon! At the end of the presentation they finally accepted we were just there to play golf and the guy said, "enjoy, its the best par 3 course in the area!" lol. It was nice though. The Nicklaus Design Cours

  11. Lie can be affected by set up, but it is really impact position that is key. The shaft is actually bending down slightly at impact. So the head is slightly flattened with respect to the shaft. If you set up too close or too far from the ball, it can vary the head position at impact. One trick I use at set up is to let my right arm hang free. If I can then move it to the club without moving it in or away from my body, then my set up is in the right spot.

  12. Okay, so I had a really good range session yesterday. I even got to hit balls off GRASS!!!!!! Yahoo! I didn't get any video. But judging from my divots and ball flight my swing path has improved. The plan for the rest of March: Get some more video. Get some trackman numbers. Continue to work drills to improve my release... it is still a power leak. Continue to practice setting up with my feet square or even a bit open to my target line. Confirm my swing plane. I think I'm starting to get very steep again. I'll need to confirm. Maintain my

  13. I thought you said he was hitting a wedge???? Funny story, Carl. So, 20-25 years ago, there was guy in my work golf league who always said he was a scratch player... at least that's what he told us. He also used to say he hit driver 300 yards (this was back when 300 yards was far.) We called the guy "half wedge", because every approach shot he'd say "This is a half-wedge for me". Every time I ever played with him, he'd say "Man, I don't think I've ever played this badly." The other thing he'd tell us is that he'd "Cave in the face" of his driver a couple times per year. So, he

  14. Alice Cooper got some demons under control by playing a lot of golf, maybe it will work for Manziel? I don't think he'll make the PGA Tour. Best he can hope for is a DQ from a KFC Tour event, thus following in Jerry Rice's footsteps.

  15. That happens all the time time to me. Having such a powerful swing destroys golf balls. Back in The real world, the only time I see damage like that is frOm a lawn mower.

  18. The above post is almost 13 years old. I've now played in 48 states (all but Alaska and Hawaii) and 13 countries. Total number of courses played exceeds 750. My wife no longer thinks the golf ball collection from courses played is a good hobby.

  20. 4 hybrid. I’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating. This is what I consider the best way to determine which tees are appropriate when looking at a new course. Much better than simply looking at overall yardage. If the tees I’m playing are likely to require more than that on 2 or more holes, I’m probably playing the wrong tees. For me, that means more than 2 holes over about 415 yards.

  21. Since your question asks which is the longest club I'd WANT into a par 4, I'd say a putter.

  22. Day 2 – Shoulder Pitch Today we practice turning our torso (as loosely measured across the shoulders) on the proper pitch or angle, roughly perpendicular to the torso angle at setup. Faults that we often see include: Turning the shoulders too flat, which can cause a bunch of problems. The head moving all around as the golfer “adjusts” his shoulder pitch in transition. Poor contact The drills for today include: 1:00 – Airplane Wings 2:00 – Shaft Across the Shoulders 3:00 – Shoulder to the Spot

  23. Out with a couple friends in a casual round today. One was taking his new F8 driver out for the first time. He has always been a spray and pray driver of the ball, in spite of many thousands of dollars spent on clubs and 'fix your swing' gadgets. On the first tee he hits his traditional pull hook, way left, into the trees swing. But instead of hooking into the trees, it pretty much held the line and ended up in the rough. Next hole was bombed down the middle on a frozen rope, I don't think I moved a foot off line. A few holes later he bails out of a swing and we are all looking well right for

  24. Good for you Billsy. I'm 70, used to tell my wife I'm practicing for the senior tour. Now I tell her that someday there could be a super senior tour so I need to be ready.

    • I've played 18 of the 27 several times.   We use to participate in a senior scramble on occasion.  I like the course.   I have not played the north course.
    • Hit the 9 wood on a 186 yard par three, hang time was incredibly long. It finally landed and only bounced about 6' forward. I was 20' to the right of the pin. Lipped out the bird, easy par. I think I like this.
    • Hi folks! Been stuck at 18h for 3 years and I'm not sure what to focus on to improve. Any ideas? Maybe new shoes and a shorter backswing 😀 I've been Playing Golf for: 5 years My current handicap index or average score is: 18 My typical ball flight is: right The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: occasional pull hook  Videos:   
    • Shot 86 on a 6000 yard par 72 yesterday. After a mixed start, I'm very happy with the last 10 holes. 3 O.B. tee-shots and a tee-shot that found a bush 3 yards right of the fairway is responsible for +8 of the score and a couple of bad approach shots on the front +3-4 more. Hit 2 of the first 6 and 6 of the last 10 greens and made no 3-putts on very slow and bumpy greens (33 putts total). Hit my short irons really well from the short stuff (hit all the greens from 150 and in from fairway/semi), but struggled a bit from thick rough and with my longer irons.  Finished the round with a nice birdie on 18, a 310 yard dogleg right par 4 playing a little uphill into the wind. Hit my drive well and it ran through the fairway a couple of yards into the left rough, and left me with 50 yards to the pin. Piched a smooth AW to 7 feet an sunk the putt.  Shot of the day came on hole 11, a short, downhill (10 yards), 275 yards par 4 with a false front (uphill the last 30 yards). Hit a perfect 4 wood directly at the flag and it landed 2 yards short of the green (268y), jumped a yard back because of very soft conditions and left me with 8 yards left to the pin. Made the up and down for a nice birdie there as well.     
    • Well how well did he hit the 2-iron?
