  1. Its funny that you say that because my HR manager was golfing in Orlando a couple of weekends ago and on a par three over water hit his first shot int he drink, so he grabs another ball calls for his mulligan and hits another. He just saw it on the green and bent down to pick ip his tee but my boss actually saw it go in, so he told him and he said there was no way but sure enough when they got up there it was in. Im a little pissed because I was out of town otherwise I would seen this in person. I myself have yet to see one...close...but not in... My HR said that he couldn't put a one on the c
  2. But seriously I do want to see the vid... pg13 though please
  3. I just read this whole thread at lunch and had multiple people looking at me as I spewed food all over the place... Its like a train wreck, I couldn't look away...
  4. This thread has taken a really odd turn... I would definitely agree that gps is generally more accurate on the course but it is useless on the range which is where most of us dial in on our yardages. If you don't know how far you hit each club than it doesn't matter how accurate your range finder/gps is.
  5. I don't think this would help my already slow play :)
  6. Odd isn't it... I'm actually able to work the driver better than my 3w so yea I'll hit a 250 yd high fade or a 290 yd push draw depending on the hole. This is really off subject but a couple weeks ago I hit a 314 yd low fade on the first hole, I think that I did the math wrong though because the course was really wet (which means I should've gotten no roll), it was uphill (it was playing longer) and I didn't feel as though I got all of it but we all three came up with the same math. I probably average closer to 275 but I don't know because I hit a variety of different shots and distances with
  7. 1) I am not way off, that part of the argument was based on a comparison of "long hitters" from different eras, I apologize for not spelling out every little detail for your feeble mind. 2) I never said that every player or even most players averaging 305, I simply said that "guys" average 305. That could imply as many as 100 players or as little as 2 players. 3) I never said anything about hitting it the farthest also makes you "#1 or #2" in the world, it just so happens that Bobby Jones was one of the longest in his time and one of best, if the best, of his time. 3) I never said anything abo
  8. Bobby jones was considered to be a long hitter in his day and he would average 250 yards with an occasional 265 yard bomb... guys nowadays average 305 with the occasional 350 yard bomb and I know that I've seen Rory,Day, Bubba and Tiger all hit 400 yarders in a tournament.
  9. Once again I think many will agree that there have been many other changes to our great game that have impacted history far more than the anchoring of the putter. For instance I don't think that Bobby Jones ever envisioned 400+ yard drives...
  10. I was on a business trip last year and didn't have clubs or shoes so I borrowed my bosses clubs and played in flip flops, my choices were dress shoes or flip flops... I actually played fairly well, I felt as though I was unable to overswing so I made good contact on most shots.
  11. Congrats on being incapable of reading an entire thread you huge f@#$ing dbag... wow, just wow
  12. Sorry to get in so late on this one. I think that the reason that most pros don't complain about pin placement at Augusta is because while the greens are incredibly fast the pins are often in locations that if you place your ball correctly it will funnel to the hole rather than away. It seemed that in the Open Championship some of the pins were literally on a mound, there were some putts that I saw where the player putting uphill and run it past the hole to leave himself an uphill putt???? I also think that since The Masters is played at the same venue each year players are able to learn the b
  13. "personally, i can't stand Mickelson. his presentation on the course really puts me off -- when his game is on, he has that stupid $#!^-eating grin on his face; and so often when he misses a putt, he stands there with his jaw dropped, as if the hole scooted out of the way at the last second. i'm sure he's a nice guy and i know a lot of fans like him... but as trivial as they may be, Phil's overdramatized reactions are annoying as hell to watch. (not to mention, he's a whiny b**** off the course.)" I wanted to make one last point on this subject since I've had the chance to watch four days
  14. Gambling is just another form of discretionary spending... If you have the money to spend and it doesn't define you or your life I don't see a problem with it. I personally have quite a few friends that spend way more money on golf than I do (discretionary spending), that doesn't make them bad people or say that their prioritys are out of whack, it simply means that they have more time and money than I do... I guess what in trying to say is tat its not about how much you gamble with or spend on golf or movies or video games or amusement parks or car parts or tools..... What matters is percent
  15. I dont what stats may say but I do know that I've heard many tour pros say that only Ballestero's hands, creativity and ability to manufacture shots is better than Phil's... I'd say that's pretty good company to be in as far as history goes.
  16. I will say that I like to watch Rickie Fowler play because of his risk reward style and because I like to watch guys who have a less than robotic looking swing.
  17. I would have to say just the opposite of what the OP stated that Phil is "overdramatized" in his reactions... I seem to remember Tiger being the one who really made the big fist pump popular... I seem to remember him being the one who turns and yells with the crowd when he makes a big putt... and I definitely remember Tiger throwing his hat to the ground in an "overdramtized" manner when he won at Bayhill... God forbid a professional golfer be surprised/pissed when he misses a putt. I know for a fact that when Tiger wasn't putting very well in the last few years his reactions were very animat
  18. I kinda have to agree that Tigers mental game isn't broken (even as a documented Tigger hater). I would tend to think that the rest of the tour is just less terrified by Tiger than they were a couple years ago. I can remember good golfers literally falling apart if they were in the hunt with Tiger and forget about it if they were paired with him. To answer the original question though... The only constant for me is that I root for Phil and against Tiger and if Phil isn't playing than I find myself rooting for whoever is in the lead to begin the final round. For some reason I hate to see someon
  19. I was in South Carolina a couple years ago and was playing a course that was quite lush, on a short dogleg left with a somewhat blind landing area I hit a perfect 3i dead center and when I drove down to hit my second I realized that I had hit into the guy in front of me... I apologized profusely but he laughed and told me "don't worry about it, I've been looking for a ball that I hit with my 4i for twenty min". He explained to me that he had heard my ball hit but had not seen it bounce when he looked up. He and I both looked for about another ten min as there was no one else in the course but
  20. Sorry I miss-quoted, it does sound like you need to practice more with those clubs.
  21. I would tend to agree. Your swing with your woods and driver (and i've also heard your hybrids from some teachers) is a different swing. Alot of the difference can be achieved through ball position. Unless I've heard wrong from most teachers the swing with your irons should be a descending blow and you should actually hit the ball on the upswing with your woods and driver. I've heard most people say the same thing about hybrids, hybrids are designed to make it easier to get the ball up in the air therefore you shouldn't have to hit down on the ball to produce backspin. I say all that to say th
  22. I do a lot of this too, a guy that I play with says that he can tell when I'm going to play poorly because he says that my tempo will get screwed up.
  23. I don't think that I have to use all caps to single you out, and I am trying to single you out. To almost quote you "Read the report". I wasn't trying to make an "assumption" but instead a comparison. I'm sorry if you didn't like my comparison , I was simply trying to make the argument that our game has evolved a lot in the last 100 years or so and I think that some of the other advances have changed the game way more than anchoring. My opinion is and has been that some players (not myself as I stated earlier in the thread) feel more comfortable with the putter being anchored to some part of t
