  1. Matt Kuchar -9 Miguel Angel Jimenez -9 Thorbjorn Oleson -9 Thorbjorn Thorbjorn Olesen
  2. If Tiger wins after all this, it won't have an asterisk next to it, it'll have an exclamation point.
  3. Why would he withdraw, he accepted the results by the rules committee. Lets not let be prideful goats. Play the game.
  4. He moved the ball a yard and took two extra strokes. That's a fair result for most reasonable people.
  5. Keegan Bradley -13 Nicholas coelsaerts (sp?) -13 Karl Petterson -13
  6. The best thing you can do is find someone who doesn't plan to vote and try to get them to!
  7. To Adam: The theory behind low carb diets is that, because the body burns carbs before it burns fat, if there are few carbs available to burn the body will burn fat for energy instead. This is of course in direct contrast to calorie counter diets, but it sounds like you've got your mind made up already!
  8. I am so inconsistent with the driver. I am hoping to find a good book that will guide my practice time at the tee. Do you have any recommendations?
  9. I've got a 3 iron/hybrid that I use on narrow and short holes, especially if there is OB to the right and/or I have lost my faith in my driver & 3w. If you practice it enough and can rely on it more than your bigger sticks, feel free to use it - avoid the trees however possible!
  10. Have you considered moving the ball forward in your stance to hit it shorter, and back in the stance to hit it farther? Or do you feel this adds unnecessary variability to your game?
  11. The problem with this logic is that the learner doesn't know whether or not they are making the correct motions unless they see the result of their actions born out in the ball flight. They would essentially be repeating movement after movement, ingraining a skill with no knowledge of whether it, once ingrained, will lead to success. You can easily imagine someone spending a month working on a swing path using this golf net, only to find upon reemerging onto a golf course, that he has automatized a wild hook. How is that helpful?
  12. If you are practicing but can't see the result of your swing, you are getting no feedback, and have no way of knowing which swings were successful and which were not. You have no way of diagnosing your errors and no good way of experimenting with corrections (because testing those corrections requires you see your new results to determine if the corrections worked or not). If you practice without receiving feedback, all you are doing is ingraining your current swing. You are not making real changes - you are not improving. You are just swinging. Consider it exercise, not practice.
  13. If it is due to a steep swing he probably experiences a lot of tops and chunks also. I am under the impression a push results from an in-to-out swing and a square clubface (relative to the swing line, not the target). If what I believe is correct, it seems like you should focus on swinging more out-to-in (but not excessively so). Try taking three practice swings. In the first, swing normally, in to out. Then have a swing that intentionally goes out to in, the typical slice swing. Then on your final swing, split the difference. Hope that helps at all.
