  1. Michelle Wie

    I like Michelle Wie, but whatever that dead pink animal is on top on top of her head , she needs to get rid of it. She looks hideous.
  2. Michelle Wie's Swing Looks Different

    Her stance is too wide and she's bent over too much.
  3. Okay.... That's fair. But I challenge you to try and hit with your left arm (if you're a righty) perfectly straight...espcially during you back swing.
  4. Biggest myth of all, and I didn't see it on the list, is "keep your left arm straight throughout your swing".
  5. Was this Poor Etiquette?

    I would say it's gamemanship. FWIW.... I don't like profanity on the golf course...... even among good friends....that's just me, tho
  6. walking on to a college golf team?

    Just a my 2 cents..... in 2017. Back in the early 80's, when I was a junior golfer I would shot 75 - 80 consistently in tournaments. I went to Texas A&M, hoping I can walk on and make their golf team. I was in for a rude awakening. One of the assistant golf coach let me play two rounds of golf on the Aggie Golf course. I shot 76 and 77. That wasn't good enough. At lease I had a great time with the coach. During the round he'd make do some golf drills to see my skill level. . I think they stopped holding walk-on tryouts many years ago. Probably no longer worth their time. Texas A&M is currently ranked #3. And they're consistently ranked in the top 20. I had the time of my life at Texas A&M University. I make a pilgrimage every year to watch Aggie football game at College Station.
  7. Grades for Tiger's Performance (Hero 2017)

    His swing looks powerful. A-
  8. Hideki's situation. Hear me out!!!

    The bottom line is whether it was intentional or not, the "crime" was commited. He should be penalized.
  9. First time on the course

    I commend you for checking your ego, and NOT playing on a regular course for your first round. You may love golf. But often times, it won't love you back. Good luck.
  10. Classic/Old School Golf Pics Thread

    a man whom I thought had the prettiest swing at the time.
  11. If you could ONLY carry two wedges, which ones?

    50, 58 50 is close enough to a 46-pitching and a good gap 58 is high loft sand-wedge and low loft lob wedge.
  12. When is it too cold to golf?

    As others have said, the loss is about a club. Don't know the exact numbers. I can live with 15-20 yards loss in my driver. But, I have harder time adjusting to distance loss with my irons. If the cold air is thick with moisture or fog, furgitaboutit.
  13. When is it too cold to golf?

    Anything as low as 40 degrees is playable as long the wind is low. If the wind is up (> 20mph), even 55 degrees seem too cold. I've played when it was about 30 degrees without hardly any wind, and it was really comfortable. I've done this before. colored balls don't help when it burrows under the snow.
  14. Which wedge should I pick?

    I may change my clubs, and woods, to a different brand. But I'll always carry Cleveland wedges. Titleist Vokey is a close 2nd choice.
  15. Whatever happened to.........?

    Of course not. We can only go by his potential. And he had lot of potential, in my opinion.
