  1. Just a little one, yeah. I’ve been working on shortening my backswing and that’s been a side effect. Distance hasn’t changed much, but I’m almost at the point where I can start working on my preferred push fade. Good idea on the steeper shoulders! I’ll give that a try.
  2. Definitely faster. I tend to leave my putts short, so faster greens make it easier on me.
  3. Golf Goals 2020 - Break 70 - Get from a 4 handicap to scratch - See an AimPoint instructor
  4. hello friends it’s been a long time. I’ve finished grad school, gotten my MFA, and moved to Charlotte, NC. here’s a new swing video: my life seems to have calmed down, so hopefully I’ll be posting more!!!!
  5. Course is kicking ass so far. Spieth's ball speed with the driver has been under 170 every shot I've seen him hit. Interesting.
  6. I agree. But I think my original point stands. I don't think them being women is the reason a lot of their players only have 3-5 years of excellent play. The more I think about it, you can apply to virtually every sport. Most players have a 3-5 year prime that quickly flames out. Only the really great ones have a full and complete career.
  7. What male golfers have a long period of sustained success, outside of maybe 3-5 years? Tiger, Phil, Ernie, Vijay, Rory, Spieth, etc. Most players have their run and then fade away pretty quickly. I don't think it's an LPGA thing.
  8. I voted funny. I think it'll be good for this event.
  9. Nobody loves Tiger more than me. But if Jordan gets those numbers, he’d more than likely be my pick for the GOAT. Truth is truth, after all.
  10. Nobody on that broadcast wanted Patrick Reed to win, nor did many of the people around 18 green. It was shitty of all of them, frankly.
  11. Livid, no. Sad and upset and drinking myself to sleep, yes. I will never apologize for laughing at Sergio. That guy is an a-hole.
  12. God, I bet that was amazing. Welcome back to Georgia, again! When I went to the Masters three years ago, he didn't show up for a practice round until late, after we had left. When I followed him at the 2011 PGA the crowds were ten deep. Nuts the amount of attention he gets.
  13. I am very late on this but I just wanted to say that I cackled like an old witch brewing a potion in a thunderstorm when Sergio hit those balls in the water. A truly great moment in my Masters history.
  14. I understand that he won yesterday. That does not discount the literal years where he talked cash shit and did nothing to back it up. I don't think it's double standards. Spieth doesn't have a decade of this behavior under his belt. It's different, and it's easy to see why it's different. It's exciting when a brash talent takes the world by storm. If I'm gonna have to listen to someone mouth off, I'd rather them dunk on me and mean it. It's much more annoying when they talk trash and can't hit it out of their shadow.
  15. I can't speak to whatever incident with Spieth you're referring to, but even factoring that it, I don't think he's shown a pattern of dickhead behavior. I don't mind Poulter having a lot of flashy cars and homes. That means nothing to me. It's the way he treats his fellow players and the media and the fans. He's just a jerk, and to make it worse, he doesn't even win!
  16. I just think he's a jerk. I think back to that incident with Matsuyama from a few years back, where he went out of his way to embarrass Matsuyama while simultaneously embellishing what had actually happened. Factor in that by his own expectations he's a huge disappointment and a loudmouth, and you've got a recipe tailor-made for me to dislike you.
  17. I'm one of the biggest TW fans around, but I don't think that entertainers should get a pass for bad deeds. I don't watch Woody Allen movies anymore, despite how much I love him, because he's gross and has suffered no punishment for it. Obviously, Tiger hasn't done anything within the realm of what Allen did, but you get what I'm saying. Tiger, on the other hand, has lost hundreds of millions of dollars in sponsorships and endorsements and through his divorce. He's been mocked relentlessly for almost a decade now. If anyone has paid the price for their indiscretions, it's him. On a side note: it's hard to find the right balance of art v artist. I love the work of Ernest Hemingway, but recognize what a bastard he was. Maybe him being gone makes it easier to justify being a fan. It's certainly complicated. But anyway-- I think he has a very good shot. Great iron players usually have an advantage at Augusta, and he's the best of his generation, and maybe of all time. If not Tiger, I think Xander Schauffle has a chance. Not saying as the favorite, but I love his game and his swing.
  18. ugh. of all the people to win the week before The Masters.
  19. You're the one who keeps coming into the thread, my man. There ain't a magnet, and you ain't made steel. If you don't wanna argue every day about Jack v. Tiger, all you gotta do is not click the link. Nobody is going to chase you around with an iPad or a laptop with this thread open on it.
  20. Again, since apparently nobody was listening: what you're describing is people disagreeing with you. It turns out that more people think Tiger is better than Jack, at least on this forum. Just because you have an opinion doesn't mean that people have to agree with it.
  21. I voted no, but I wish there was a spectrum, because I think he's pretty close, at least based on the people that have been chosen so far. I was happy Freddy Couples got in, because I like Freddy Couples, but probably on playing merits he probably shouldn't have made it in. To put a number on it: five more wins or three wins and a major and I'd say he's a lock.
  22. He's come within a few strokes of qualifying for the US Open several times. A vanity-capper he is not.
  23. I don't think he's a hack compared to the Tour pros. He's not as good, of course, but he's not Jerry Rice, who clearly showed he didn't belong on the Web.com event.
