  1. So… TheOpen.com, on July 16-19, will be showing on their YouTube, Facebook, etc. channels, an "Open for the Ages." They've combined footage of Jack, Tiger, Greg, Jordan, Gary… etc. into a fake "tournament" in which everyone plays against each other. Looks incredible. I hope they can pull it off.
  2. You cannot do that, no. It's not "still" allowed as it has never been allowed.
  3. Yeah, already addressed, but no. Just before a tournament, sure, shift the balance to short game a little. But overall, 60% is much too much.
  4. You don't. I mean, this isn't an opinion. You went one route — you don't know that route was the "best" because, again, you didn't have several alternate universes in which to test other methods that may have been better. Everyone's swing "repeats" to within a pretty small degree. I'm glad. Still doesn't change what I've said. Nobody that I know of here disagrees with that. They're disagreeing that the way you went about it should be followed by others. I'm pointing out the fact that you don't know if it was even the best plan for you. It's the one you chose, so you're going to believe in it, but you can't know. I'm glad you're happy. Thanks for adding the avatar.
  5. I still have 1, 2, 4, and 8 remaining. Played the white tees today so I don't count rounds from those tees: only blue and black.
  6. The point I'd make is that you don't know if it worked "best" because there's no alternative universe where another "you" took a different tactic. Please add an avatar @Vespidae.
  7. My point was that it may be difficult to make a vaccine for COVID. Results are promising, but many vaccines can fall late. SARS and MERS still exist in the world. They're not eradicated. Coronavirus Vaccine Tracker - The New York Times A look at all the vaccines that have reached trials in humans.
  8. Day 198 - July 14, 2020 Played 18 holes. Hit four balls downtown first, too! 🙂
  9. Bill these were so much better.
  10. And the point I'm making is that: The long clubs are not all that different than the short clubs. What's different about a 6I versus a 7I? Not much. The long clubs — like a driver — are often fun to hit. People forced to hit only a SW until they can hit it "consistently" (by some definition) might quit golf before they are allowed to hit something else. The driver is often more "forgiving" — I know you already responded to that, but it's true. The ball's on a tee, it has a huge club face, etc. People need to learn to hit all the clubs, and I think it will slow their progress to hit only or primarily one club. I get people with enough speed hitting driver in the second lesson for beginners, typically. And our juniors, it's day two as well in our three-day camps.
  11. Huh? There are days I shoot 71 and don’t hit the ball “consistently.” If people did what you’re saying they’d never hit a long club and would quit golf.
  12. They mention it in the video too. That’s what I call a “sooner” swing. You start down “sooner” rather than just making the same backswing faster. So I’d say you just didn’t do it quite right. Your feel wasn’t “real” to you in the right way.
  13. I'd called or left a voicemail or text about it, but I wonder if you don't feel that your right knee twists inward during the backswing. Almost the opposite of the old sevam1 direction, where the knee (through the quads/hammies more than the lower leg) twists inward during the backswing a little. The feeling can work — that's not my question. The question is do you ever feel it that way? Another general question but for you specifically: if your issue (one of) is with your left hip flexion stuff, do you feel it during the backswing or is it a downswing thing only, and if it's the former, do you have any left hip feels or is it mostly right side feels for you?
  14. Yup. Page 34 of LSW has this and more:
  15. More up. Less in. Less across.
  16. I'm not sure what "an old school chip" is, but I feel like I use an "old school chip" pretty often. I don't play it back in my stance, but I'll hinge and hold with a forward leaning shaft.
  17. Yes. If you have a low viral load your body may not ramp up the machinery to make antibodies. Also we don’t have SARS or MERS vaccines. It’s not an easy vaccine.
  18. If your first infection is pretty mild you may not build up antibodies.
  19. The camera angle won’t make you look lefty unless you mean it’s a mirror camera recording. Neither video is from a good angle.
  20. And if you can get reinfected vaccines are far less likely.
  21. Some keep an index at their home course. Most don’t. Kind of an irrelevant point. The indexes add information to the discussion. We are moving on now.
  22. Then yes you have the wrong year. He calculated it to provide data for the conversation. Simple. Let’s move on. This isn’t going anywhere.
