  1. Letting my trail arm "fly" has been a great thing for my game. What's important is that I don't try to "place" the right arm higher, it's synced with my pivot. I'd film the swing first though to confirm it's actually tucked. Trail elbow might have nothing to do the distance lose. With the younger guys now, I'd say it's the opposite.
  2. Last week, 74, 74, 76 at the Oaks course, 73, 75 at the Canyons course, both at TPC San Antonio. 67 this Wed at Paiute from the white tees, around 6,100 yards. 68 today at TPC Vegas.
  3. 71 yesterday, still struggling with the driver, cost me some shots. Putter saved me a few times, made a couple birdie putts from 20-25ft. Put some time in today with the driver, hopefully got it worked out.
  4. At the end of the day, who cares what his secret was. It won't help your game because it was specific to his feels/priorities/faults.
  5. Struggled with the driver this weekend, made a triple on both Sat and Sun. Shot 75 and 72.
  6. Some on-course swings from our vacation last week. Making sure to keep the "bounce" in my feet to trigger the swing. Really like how dynamic it looks.
  7. lol but I do think @Braivo is referring to playing pros and not instructors.
  8. The modern driver is best for launching it high with low spin, modern ball doesn't spin as much as a balata. Going to be giving up a lot of yards (and accuracy) swinging down and across, especially off the tee. Yes. It's horrible. CP is a complex pattern and a lot players that were able to actually do it lost their ability to play on the course. Noren does a modified CP so he can play golf.
  9. You disagree there is no "Mac Model"? Well you also disagree with Mac, like I said there are CP/CF/Inline patterns. You can call me self proclaimed but your original post has some errors and is missing some important information. CP would be an Inward swing direction (left for a righty), CF would be an Outward swing direction (right for a righty) and Inline would be close to zero swing direction. Each pattern involves components that compliment creating those swing directions. CP is good for hitting low fades or pulls (steep angle of attack) and CF is good for high draws, off the tee/long irons (shallow angle of attack). Big differences are torso tilts (what Mac might call CoG locations), left arm depth at P3/P5, trail arm location at P6. Examples: CP = Alex Noren, CF = Rory McIlroy, Inline = Adam Scott Mike Bender teaches an early version of the CF pattern. Mac tends to favor CP with most students but played CF fades when he played his best. CF is a functional way to play golf, especially with modern equipment, with CP, not so much.
  10. Played some golf in Western, MA this week. 71 at CC of Pittsfield (Donald Ross), 73 at Berkshire Hills CC (Tillinghast) and 72 today at Taconic Golf Club.
  11. There is no "Mac Model", he has three: CP, CF and Inline. He got some stuff really right and other stuff really wrong. No doubt a huge influence to a lot of instructors and played a big role with moving golf instruction from the dark ages to the start of a systematic approach, consulting with experts and applying a cause and effect approach. By no means the most efficient way to create the best impact conditions.
  12. Tough call, between Group 1 and 2 for me....even if we're talking about playing with these guys somewhat in or close to their primes I'm going with Group 2 because I would want the chance to play with the GOAT and Rory might be the most impressive ball striker I've ever seen in person. Would be awesome to see Arnie and Jack up close though but then you also have to be paired with Gary Player 👎
