    That was a great video!
  2. 2013 BMW Championship Discussion Thread

    What's most disturbing though is that he slowed down immediately after the ball moved. He had to be looking right at the ball. He had to know it moved. And to not call the penalty on himself seems like of shitty. Definitely not the same way a lot of other professionals would have handled it. Karma is a funny thing. If he had called the penalty on himself, he probably would have felt a lot better about things, then chipped it in on his next shot.
  3. First, let me say that your progress is stunning. I am very jealous! Second, I would like to point out how easy it is for mortals to shoot over a hundred. You didn't factor mishits into your equation above. Imagine a tee shot on a par 4 that goes into the woods. Then the next tee shot is a grounder that goes 50 yards. Then the fourth shot is a chunk. The fifth shot is topped. There is nothing unusual about this for a beginner. It can easily take one of us six or seven strokes for a normal beginner to get even close to the green.

    Same here. My SwingBySwing phone app is always within two or three yards of any fairway yardage indicators, marked sprinkler heads, etc.
  5. worst score of year

    121. I'm posting now, even though it's early in the season, because I really hope I don't ever shoot worse than that.
  6. Plane on a Conveyor Belt

    I have to disagree with the consensus of this thread in three areas... If the conveyor belt is going 170 mph in a backwards direction, and the plane engines are providing enough thrust for the the plane to go forward at 170 mph, then the plane would actually be sitting still and would have no forward movement with regards to other stationary objects. There would also be no air movement over the wings, unless the wind was blowing. [quote] The only thing that the conveyor belt does is makes the wheels spin faster, so the plane is going 100 mph forward, the conveyor belt 100 mph backwards, meaning the wheels are spinning at 200 mph. [/quote] In the example I gave above, the wheels of the plane would be moving at 170 mph, not 340 mph. There is no force that would double the speed of the wheels. The conveyor belt is going backwards at 170 mph, and the plane wheels are going forward at the same speed. 170 - 170 = 0, which is the speed of the aircraft. [quote] I'm a pilot, and the answer is yes. Forward movement of an aircraft is caused by the thrust of its propeller or jet, not by it's wheels like that of a car. Therefore, the movement of the conveyor in no way affects the aircraft's ability to move forward relative to its position through the air which is what generates lift and allows for flight.[/quote] No offense, but si nce the plane is sitting still relative to the air surrounding the wings, there would be no lift, and this plane has no chance of taking off. The rotation speed required for takeoff must be in relation to the air moving across the wings. I think this is called "indicated airspeed". So with a 20 mph headwind, you'd only need 150 mph of actual land speed. But with no aircraft speed, you might need ~ 170 mph headwind to take off. This would be a completely different story if we were talking about a plane specifically designed for vertical takeoff...

    It normally takes me until around March to get warmed up here in central Ohio.
  8. My Swing (Chipless)

    Almost a year has passed since I started this thread. Coach has taught me much better setup posture, takeaway path and downswing. Slice is completely gone most of the time, and I can actually put a small draw on the ball on some my better shots now. Here is a seven-iron swing video shot at normal speed, then slowed down so you can see the positions frame by frame. Here's the five wood: And here's a driver swing, with the ball starting slightly to the right, then drawing back. Man, what a challenging game this is!
