  1. Does anyone know why Patrick Cantlay did not play most of June and July 2017, he was having an exceptional year considering injuries and such?

    Without a doubt one of the least sportsmanlike moves I've seen and I am 60. Making Tiger grind when it means absolutely nada. What an opportunity missed. That is the difference between a class act and someone who is playing for his record in the Cup. Shameful.
  3. Unreal. I couldn't begin to tell you how many very accomplished players think exactly as I used to(until I joined this forum). I've been teaching an incorrect move for over twenty years. Nice going. Thanks for the info guys.
  4. If anyone has access to the high speed photos talked about earlier please post the link. I am very interested in correcting a forty year old mistake. Thank you.

    Disingenuous is probably a bit strong. What I meant to convey was in trying to bolster his point he showed shots on Saturday being played from the rough and Thursday shots being played from the fairways. I think a more fair comparison would be to have shots played from the fairways on both days.
  6. Pure and plain stubborness I guess.
  7. I'm starting to think I'm a stubborn old bugger. With two different people saying the same thing perhaps I'm wrong. Can this backed up by science, and if so link me man. Everyone of my assistants and myself teach this method with all mostly all playing college and various tours. Should have joined the forum way earlier. Link me.
  8. Your'e right about the squeeze thing since if hit properly the ball is gone before the club touches the turf. What I should have written is the angle of attack is steeper on that shot and feels as though it's being trapped. About the ball flight thing, it has to start down the swing path.
  9. I"m not advocating aiming your club at a tree right in front of you and so on. If your swing path is 6 oclock to 12 oclock and you're i n the middle of the clock with your clubface aimed at the 11, it's an absolute impossibility the ball will not start at the 12. Doesn'tt matter if your face is aimed at the 10. The swing path will determine where the ball starts out. It's freaking physics. I've played this shot for over forty years with the old and new equipment. Really, try it.
  10. Thank you for the welcome, but I believe you are wrong. The ball takes off down the path of the swing. Having the club open or closed determines what spin it then has. Try a flop shot and you'll see it takes off along the swing path with left to right spin. The line the ball takes off on is created not by the alignment of the clubface but by the swing path. Thats why when players are lets say left with trees blocking a direct path to the pin we align the face at the pin and the feet to the right of what is blocking a direct route. The ball starts down the swing path (to the right of the target) and when it starts to get it shape back it spins to the left. Now obviously you have to have clubhead speed to accomplish this. If I was to hit a little chip shot then the closed clubface will direct the ball
  11. Gettin it from many sides tonite. Trapping the ball merely means squeezing the ball against the turf with the blade. Love Johny but I'm not certain he coined the call.
  12. The setup I explained is called a trap draw. I'm sure you can find someone on the net that tells you to use a rake to play the draw. I've been a member for a whole hour so far and will not spout credentials, but the simple fact is at the highest level of the game that is how a draw is played. I might add that some players because of their swing plane will naturally draw the ball. This method is for golfers not in that category. Why don't you try it, I'm sure you will then agree.
  13. News Flash: We need to immediately tell all tour players to re-learn to hit the draw. David will now explain to all how he hits a draw.
  14. Aim your clubhead at the target, align your feet where you want the ball to start and simply swing. The farther right you align your feet and the farther left you aim the clubhead, the more the ball will hook.

    Just got thru listening to Franks analysis concerning the firming of Bethpage. He showed us some shots from Thursday that stopped quickly and were hit with wedges from the fairway. He then went on and showed Stadlers shot that didn't stop, Watneys chip that didn't stop, and finally Watneys full shot that didn't stop. These shots were all played today. Poulter had whined about the hardness of the greens and tough pin placements. Poor guy, guess he doesn't like challenging situations. Anyway, what Nobilo didn't mention was that Stads shot was from the rough, Watneys chip also was from the rough, with hooded contact, and finally Watneys pull hook from the fairway. Of course these shots ran out. I thought it was very disingenuous.
