    USGA Looking Into Lucy Li Apple Watch Ad

    If the ad (not "add") didn't have the golf tie-ins, you'd have a point. But it did, so you don't. Horrible point: college scholarships are specifically allowed in the rules for amateur status.
  2. Kinda. But these are 4-6mm drop (depending on shoe size). But otherwise, yes, fairly "minimalist."

    My Swing (cantankerish)

    Three quick notes: Caddie view is the same as face on. Down the line views are just that… down the line. Your down the line videos are well off: https://thesandtrap.com/b/playing_tips/filming_your_swing Your weight stays back. See Key #2 videos and information here on the site:

    USGA/R&A Finalize 2019 Rules of Golf

    I think it's more likely that people will actually screw that up and play from a wrong place, not that they can "game" the system. If they mark with a tee and drop really near the tee… IMO they're just as likely to need to place anyway. Especially given the added precision from dropping from only knee height. No. But you don't have to in 2019, either.

    My Swing (stillhackin)

    Pretty flat shoulder turn… Can you see the ball from here? Are you left eye dominant?

    What do you mean exactly? Game the drop "how"?

    My Swing (Slim_Pivot)

    A few quick thoughts: Mind your camera angles. Though the club looks like it's coming from slightly inside on several, it's likely a little bit "out" because the camera is too far "out" too. Toe line. https://thesandtrap.com/b/playing_tips/filming_your_swing Your "flip" is more because your hands slow down. Keep your hands going faster, keep your pivot speed up. If your right hand "throws" the clubhead at the ball, that'll slow down your hands, too. You're still on track with things. Make shorter swings where the ball pushes or draws, and work your way up to longer swings. Going at full speed just "trying" to do things isn't a great way to practice. Work at the edge of your ability.

    They're not re-pairing. They're just turning around and starting the final round. Not that Tiger is going to win, but he could finish hours before the leaders and will have played the 18th hole hours before the leaders even get to the back nine. Tiger is currently T7.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    Legally, when you visit a restaurant, you're only obligated to pay the bill, not a tip. Kuchar was only legally obligated to pay $4k. But that still doesn't mean he wasn't a douche to pay $5k.
  12. This business has a ton of signs that are sexually suggestive. But it's just hot dogs.

    It is simple and clear. She breached it, and somehow got off with only a "warning." No, because he's not famous or known for being a golfer. Not sure oof your point here - nothing would stop her from playing professionally. It's remaining an amateur that's at question. They have ads with amateurs in them all the time. But those amateurs are being paid as actors, not because of their reputation and skill as golfers. It's not about being "put out." It's about the very definition of the word. If they got $5k instead of the clubs, they're obviously no longer an amateur - they're accepting remuneration for their play/skill at golf. Ditto if they get clubs (valued at > $750).

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    Knowing the course well enough to help a few bums on vacation and knowing the course well enough to help a PGA Tour player are two very different things. For example (and it's just one example of many I could share), I had a really good caddie (by reputation) at Kiawah Island… and he couldn't help Dave and I, let alone a PGA Tour player. His advice actually hurt our game(s) until we started ignoring him.
