  1. Ian Poulter bullies rule official into wrong decision

    Whereas, if you hit it AROUND the hill instead of over it, you'd be horizontally certain? :P

    Son is just really getting into baseball this year and is in little league, and the west team is from the town right next door to us so we'll definitely be watching. We watched their last two games this week and, in fact, were it not for previously made plans for last night we were probably going to go watch the regional championship game live. (SB Ian an hour away). Although the place looked packed so we may not have got in. There were 10k people there! Go Santa Margarita!!!
  3. 2017 Snell PGA Championship Prediction Contest

    No. I peeked yesterday and one other guy has him as a second pick ... but I don't remember which score.
  4. Backyard putting green questions

    Yeah, mine is like this as well. I think there is some sand and synthetic stuff in mine. One thing I didn't consider was my neighbor planting trees just on the other side of the fence from mine. Mines become a little bumpy and I assumed it was from gophers passing through but somebody else suggested it might be from the neighbors tree roots. :(
  5. Played a Norman course for the first time this week at PGA West. Only one thing stood out to me as unique, and that was that many of the greens were very oblong. One in particular was completely horizontal to the direction of approach and it was 50 yards wide by 10 yards deep. Here's a picture from the side: Others were long and skinny or at angles. Otherwise, a very standard desert style course.
  6. Ideal Pitching/Layup Distance

    Then it sounds like you're way overthinking this. This one sentence is all that matters.
  7. Ideal Pitching/Layup Distance

    But what are your average proximities on a 60, 50, 40, 30, 20 yard shot? Are any of them actually worse than for that "ideal" 70 yard distance?

    Seems like you'd have to be fitted for every club, or at least each club where you transition between styles to make sure your gaps are all in tact. I'm still not in the market for new clubs but man those blades are pretty. :)

    I Play the Snell MTB because it is equal in performance to other premium balls at a considerably cheaper price. (Also, because strangers are less likely to mistake it for their ball and pick it up) Rickie Fowler: -7 Si Woo Kim: -7 David Lingmerth: -7
  10. 3 Wood Shaft in a Driver

    This isn't quite as technical as all the other posts but ... I shortened my driver to about 44" by cutting an inch or two off the butt end and that's it. Works like a charm.

  12. Where are we?

    Lanai?

    Looks like he finished really strong today. +4 through 8 holes and then even par over the last 10 for another 74. Good for T148 and ahead of 4 players that completed all 36 holes. Pretty impressive, all things considered.
  14. Ideal Pitching/Layup Distance

    Really dumb ideas, these two. Particularly the second one. I don't know what they're smoking. The correct answer is to be as risky as possible and lay back to at least 110-115 yards whenever possible. More than that is better. Do both of those, all the time, and you're golden.* * (There is a small chance I'm completely making shit up and messing with these two because they are the enemy come Newport Cup time, but it's only a small chance. You be the judge.)

    Looks like he'll probably finish 3rd to last at this pace (not counting the 3 WD's) There are two other guys that have given him a several stroke cushion and are still going backwards. :)
