  1. often a good runner up I would play safe PAR lay up maybe a birdie or hole outplay off if prize money 53k is needed to maintain my status and the rest a bonus. If I'm go for the top already *i could think about it i have 275 biggest mightist max wind behind and great sandy dry shotrt cut FW with a 3 wood dont think 300 is in range anyway it's a bad bargain.

    Your BEST single shot of 2016 -----> go

    hole out 2nd shot on a short par 4 283 meters (310 yards). half 3 wood center cut. 60 meters left (0 yards about), flag short and left after the pond. the green rolls out a lot it's strange but totally downhill instead of towards the shot. I see the shot to get close and it's too close to the hazard so I aim at get back the flag knowing it will ditch down 15 feet at least to the right on the downhill. 60° wedge half shot that I hold. finally I pulled the shot it hit 15 feet above the flag at a very dagerouse 10cm from the pont, the ball checked, stopped then rolled down in the cup funny I holed this par 4 in one on my second competitive round. I alos made a huge number of Bog and double on this tiny hole the green is with a hazard on the fringe, slopes mega downhill and after the green there is 50 feet of a cliff if the ball holds it's a miracle and not OB but very hard to up in 2.

    How many holes in one have you had?

    had my first hole out on a par 4 last month for eagle. strangely i did on the same hole i aced on my 2nd competitive round (283 meter par 4). still no aces on par 3 except a couple on pitch and putt courses
  4. the mat is'nt really your problem I would stop focussing on this. your contact quality is a problem try working on that part, mat or concret who care... like said above listen for that nut craking sound the ball does when hit correctly.

    What ever happened to Hunter Mahan?

    i dont think so. I also saw poor chipping pitching with several fat shots under pressure even when he was in world top ten. I think the foley killed him like all the others besides woods who took off fast.

    Tiger spotted testing TM Clubs

    it's true the ball goes far these days and pro players can hit a modern driver or a hickory club 300 carry both equal (seen on many demos). the moderne driver only being more forgiving. nevertheless player preference is huge. I think tiger had a hard time on his putting switching to nike versus his "in his hands" long timmer scotty tool. rory had a hard time switching to nike. both tiger and rory were titleist players digging in to their pro outcome. Tiger could probably invest into the addidas deal for TM why not. Mizuno is pretty complicated material and furthermore forged club therefore less precise. even mizuno beginer clubs have a allmost scratch player rating on some test sites. ping and tm being the most forgiving by far. did'nt look too much into callaway wich seams a very US present brand. we dont see much callaway in europe appart from the ladys offer.
  7. golfers are puling out most certainly because they dont comply to anti drug rules of the olympics. this is new matter to deal with for golfers. golf standards and controls are much lower on the ET or PGA versus the olympics. the zika virus has a good back to support this withdraw communication. end of story. in 4 years drugs will be in "olympic" control and more players will come. it's obvious that the "gym" fitter golfers like mcilroy withdrew very very fast.

    Senden waits 22 sec for putt to drop

    for me he was around the hole at reasonable time when he bent his knees to look at the ball that fell 2 seconds after. no problem.

    Turn that boombox down/off ... you idiot!

    the music isn't crap it's just not suited to all. I personally dont understand the loudness "I impose to all" thing. Like all those arsholes that gear up cars to wake up 80 thousand sleeping people at night. thank god we dont have this. beaches are becoming a problem though. I've seen weapons out on rap music controversies like this although normally nobody has a gun in France (RSS collapse ended in black market trade unfortunatly), we only sponsor terrorists with social help (much higher revenu offered for nothing done ever than in home country working 24/7).
  10. it actually totally complies with the spirit (depending on point of view of course I understand your opinion) the things that rule impose relief and you search relief in a standard way to not loose time and comply to rules. (and we can obviously see here the ref is pressing time) then all of golfs madness and creativity in shot choice can change a lot when the ball is in play. I.E. before the ball is in play your' searching relief, once it is in play the shot can be very different. spieth played it good. imagine your in water in a bunker. you search relief in a position with a shot in mind to the green and a club. you drop and the ball rolls in play very close to the lip and have to play backwards not the green intended before the drop (or it plug dead on drop and have to o the same). well thats the spirit. you can't known the exact shot until you see that ball in it's place.
  11. of course. your' only supposed to search the closest point of relief with the club you could be playing most obviously. rules allow then golfing things to happen, like the ball rolls 10 inches and you have total relief, it's in play, finally it's sitting on a rock, so finally you choose another shot shape or club. I dont even understand why this discussion is going on ?
  12. sliced shots are more affected by wind than others. when you really crack the ball it's a lot less. so the technical aspect of your game is tested and can probably improve. you still need to take wind in account on the flight to the target. you may shape your shots to resist the wind effect but this is not easy. you can hit it low pretty easy to avoid wind effect.
  13. happens a lto me even though in europe people are less "knowitall". the thing is my swing is pretty personal. so no is the answer. I may ask back what does your pro ask you to work and what is your handicap ? without surprise the guys who ask the question have a lame handicap like 10 and over and dont see a pro and dont work on anything in particular but just hit balls.
