  1. He set expectations too high by winning 2 majors in his first year. People called 2016 a down year for him and he still won 2 tournaments, but no majors. He has never been "really cold" as far as I can tell. He might have just had some luck his first year and jumped out to a pace nobody could live up to.
  2. Last lesson I had the pro was telling me about how he went to a tournament down in San Diego and was watching Tiger warm up at the putting green and that he watched Tiger stand there and hit like 50 putts in a row from 3-5 feet with only his right arm
  3. Can you go into a little detail on how you "worked on keeping a flat wrist" please? Does that mean you did some drill that helped make it click for you?
  4. I feel bad for the duck... you went into a little more detail than I would have liked Couple weeks ago I was playing at a local course on the 18th hole along a lake and I do not exaggerate when I say there were at least a few hundred of those Canadian geese all over the fairway. Thought I was going to hit one but I didn't.
  5. You should probably stop knocking the ball off the tee that often lol... I can see why they say that because it would be kinda funny.
  6. You're right. Honestly until I joined this forum I never knew that much about all the golf rules and even how many clubs I could carry. The only reason I haven't looked into hybrids is because i've spent my money on other stuff like a new driver and new irons.
  7. I guess I would add a 3-hybrid. Never really hit one before but they seem to be all the rage.
  8. Do you happen to know a drill for a specific swing issue i'm having? When I hit my wedges and irons everything seems all good but the longer the club (very much more pronounced with the driver) I can't seem to keep my right shoulder down. It's always coming way up almost level with my other shoulder. For example, here is me vs. Tiger at impact. This was me when I was focusing intently on keeping my shoulder low. Notice how even with all my focus on that it's still nowhere near his angle? I have no issue with this until the clubs get longer because the driver swing feels nothing like
  9. Having never played the course before I would consider yellow but probably go with the red. I feel like with a landing area that size I can hit a 7-iron up there pretty safely. Like many said, if I wasn't feeling confident in my abilities that day, I would play yellow.
  10. I got one of those indoor putting mats from Sports Authority (or you can buy on amazon for like $45) and I really think it helps with keeping putts on line. It's also fun to play with. I notice I have putt better since buying it.
  11. I figured. Just like some play interlock and some play overlap.
  12. Does anyone know what the pros tend to do as far as left hand position on their grip?
  13. About 6 months ago I had never had a lesson and I played golf on average about once every 3-6 months for the last 10 years. My average score was probably 110-120. Within the last 4-6 months I have probably played an average of one full round per week (always on Sat or Sun), usually warmed up for 45 minutes first, gone to the driving range 2x per week on lunch breaks, and taken 7 golf lessons from a pro. Recently I posted a personal best score of 86 and I average in the low to mid 90s now. I don't know when the progress is supposed to level off but I'm happy about all of it so far. A
  14. Even thinking about things like this is helping me learn about course management. I think my decision on whether to break out the 3-wood or not would also depend a lot on trees. I don't mind chipping 30 yards out of the rough but I do mind possibly being behind a tree. Last weekend I shot my all time best score (86) and toward the end of my round I started to think about how I could play more conservative shots because I didn't want to mess up the score I had going. I remember on the 18th there was a huge water hazard both in front and out to the right of the green and I was about
