    Kuchar Pays Caddie $3K, Says Tom Gillis

    ^^Yupp. I believe he got paid more, but it seems best that he (caddy) broadcast that he got 'only' $3K. I bet the cartel fairy is already circling his house for its 'income tax'.

    Damn dood.. that looks really good! It's hard to hook if you lead with right elbow and wrist lag as long as you maintain your spine incline and turn rates through impact - super important. That looks much more loaded. I could play with this swing all day. Look up YouTube of some tour players. It's amazing how much they flatten shaft in downswing from A4 to A5. They do it by bending back right wrist full bore with a nice snug pitch right elbow.

    In my experience if I am not rotating my chest open through impact, my pelvis wants to goat hump. It is one of those things I have had to practice consciously - i.e. rotate chest through impact while maintaining incline. It's hard to do as we are so instinctively 'ball bound' at impact.

    Yeah, I will echo your sentiment. Progress seems very apparent. IMHO, you should still try to set right wrist earlier (I think it is inline with your priorities). Reason being the later you set it in your backswing, more it will require you to finish your backswing to lengthen to lay off club sufficiently. Not a big deal when practicing and you seem to transition with a good layoff and on plane quite nicely in your vids above, but as we all know that most of our on course swings can be a bit quicker in tempo and transition to DS usually suffers the most from incomplete 'lay off' when even a tiny bit anxious. I think it also has an added benefit of a more pitched right elbow at A4 and allowing you to shorten your BS with a larger margin of error for ensuring sufficient 'lay off' (sorta).
  5. No sweat.. this should be easy and I don't think weird. I think this is advantageous as far as dropping in thick fluffy rough as the ball won't sink in the grass as much, I think.

    Unusual Putting Technique

    Thanks for the tip. Should I attach the putter to the hips?

    Adding to A1 from last nights practice. Turning 'out' right bicep/inside of right elbow a bit at set up makes it sooooo much easier to get to a laid off A4 and protect Keys 1 and 2 same time. The club almost wants to fall off the back in pizza tray with a nice pitched right elbow. Adding to A1 and A2: Feeling a very gentle stretch (NOT reaching) in the left arm from A1 to A2 also helping greatly with laying off at A4 and nice snug pitch right elbow from A2 through A6. Gosh, can 2019 be the year when I will finally laying off club at A4 without thinking?? Can I finally change the picture for good?? I guess it is not battle tested so can't get too excited but certainly feels like am off to a good start..

    Overrated/Underrated (Golf) Topic

    Overrated. I love walking as long as temp below 90 degs. but I have not noticed a difference in scores with or without. If I think about it, I don't see a tangible connection. Some may see a 'rhythm' thing, but IMO that can be easily messed up by a slow group in front of you whether you are walking or riding.

    Could Brooks Win a Slam? (Update: NO, Duh!)

    I am just writing the first thing that came to my empty mind. I am going to say a Slam with an *. PGA has a much deeper field than the British Open AFIK, so that would make it more impressive. Also if he wins the next two, I am betting on him winning the third one in succession and then there will be another thread trying to name 5 in a row! .....................you heard it here first..

    Underrated. I am assuming we are not talking up purely 'bulking up'. Right kind of training, cardio/suppleness training/lifting weights combo can only help.

    Stop Aiming at the Flag!!!

    ^This is how I play. The rangefinder is primarily there to help me figure the side to err. For example if center of green (regardless of where pin is) is 150 yards, then that is an in between distance (7i or 8i). If the pin is in the back (155-160), I will pull a 7i and if pin is in the front (140-145), I will pull an 8i. For me use of range finder has NOTHING to do with aiming at the flag. It is simple - I will use all information through every venue reasonably and quickly available to me. I don't have a GPS so I shoot edge of bunkers, trees, hazards, all sorts of things to understand my margin or error based on my shot zone.
  12. @Puttin4Dough, that is a really unfortunate take on OP. Lot of us are @iacas' students with in person and online lessons for years and he has helped transformed not only many of our golf swings in the most effective way but how we approach golf as a whole. You don't have to agree but it seems you are taking it a bit too far. Please stop doubling down on misguided drivel.

    My Swing (mvmac)

    Thanks. Appreciate you letting me pick your brain a bit. Couple of more questions when you have a moment. Would you say that your putter head arc is more vertical than it is horizontal? Putter head does not seem to roll over much. Is your realease feel still smooth or are you trying to pop it a tad? I also have been feeling like I use my body too much with chicken wing elbows, arms, hands and putter frozen to it through the stroke and distance control is a dice roll. My focus 'frame' has become too narrow (like I am about to pick a splinter out my sole with a needle) and putter head bound back and through the stroke which I think makes it worse. Anyway, what you are doing makes a lot of sense and a free-er, more reactive stroke would do me a lot of good.
