    Your daughter is amazing. She should go straight to pro. My daughter is not so amazing. I should tell her to just quit.

    Or they could just take their gorgeous PRS guitars away from them.

    Actually, at the start of the putting swing, the velocity v = 0, right? At the moment of contact, the putter head has a certain velocity v, right? Let's call the difference between the initial velocity (0) and the velocity at contact 'dv'. This occurred over some period of time, right? We'll call that period of time 'dt'. Well, according to Newton, the difference in velocity over the difference in time, dv/dt = a, or acceleration. It's kind of hard to argue with physics, eh?

    That was great insight Parker. Just want to add, my daughter has 2 coaches (she might be transitioning to the 2nd one), and I have no intent of replacing them, and I never get 'on' her. Just reminding her 'wind is right to left', 'pay attention to the speed of this one', 'the ball is sitting down a little', 'the ball is above your feet'. She has ADD, and needs those reminders. that's all. that's all.

    Yes, the time frame for the learning curve is not equivalent. I would estimate that 4 yrs of playing a hard game equals about 3 first times out trying to ride a bike. Whatever, the analogy is obviously not perfect, but you know what I'm saying. Cmon, how good are most golfers in their 4th year of playing? OK, I get what y'all are saying. I understand. I apologize, but I'm going to bow out now, as the dead horse is getting tired of the beating.
  7. Downhill lies would be my 2nd something else. How about a downhill lie long iron shot? Eeeek!

    Accelerate through the ball with good tempo no matter what kind of shot you have. That'll be $50. You're welcome (Actually I have to remind her that all the time with chips and putts)
  9. I posted this in the 'Post a fact from your job': I never cease to be amazed at how overdone every aspect of federal work is. Feds literally and truly believe that weighing a report or determining the word count is the best way of determining its quality. The more steps there are in a process, the better it is. The more procedures and policies an agency has, the better. Your tax dollars at work..

    Yes yes, this is obvious stuff (but thanks for the input). I'm just saying after only 4 years of playing, she can still use some reminders in this difficult game. How well did you play after 4 years? When you start teaching a kid how to ride a bike, do you just throw them on and tell them to go for it, knowing that falling will build character and teach them to not do that, or do you run along holding the seat for the first bunch of times?
  12. I never get wound up by the first tee shot of the day. Actually, I usually hit them well because my expectations are low and I just want to make decent contact. What gets me nervous is a strong wind on the tee coming in and left to right. Not like my heart gets pounding, but in the back of my head I know I'm going to wipe it...

    I am taken aback with all the anecdotal reports of over the top golf parents. My stepdaughter and I have always had a great on course relationship. She is always receptive and responsive and sometimes asks for my advice. It is actually over everyday life that we sometimes clash. Oh well, I was just wondering what the big deal is about caddying, and now I know. Thanks for all your replies. BTW pretzel, she averages low 90s on mid-level courses. She won the women's club champ at a course where she is an associate member with a blistering 84 (yes I caddied for her), so we have our fingers crossed...

    But they might, just might, get up to tournament golf if you give them a chance at the beginning. My daughter generally strikes the ball well (esp her driver - she wows adults all the time), however, this past year was her first playing individual tournaments, and a few times she shot scores that were very high for her and came off the course saying 'I suck'. I guess the pressure got to her. So she should just quit, and forego the hopes of at least a partial scholarship?
  15. Just watched Rubio's speech. It's so funny how they think we can't detect how much they are really just actors. I love the way his speech writers sprinkle in phrases and words that will bring in all of the various demographics into their speech. He was cruising along talking about opportunity, then defense, then Hillary, then out of the blue, "And I want to thank our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for making this possible.....". I was like, where did that come from? That's a pretty blatant and shallow effort to pander to the evangelical right... Question: Do any politicians actually and truly believe in Jesus Christ?
