  1. If I were a legal counsel for the PGA I would tell them there is not only no incentive to do this, there is a huge potential downside. After the soccer equitable pay case, last thing the PGA wants is to open that door.

    Pace Problem

    @colin007, we all know the wicked sense of humor golf gods have. I wouldn't want to hit a career 3W the one time I don't wait for the green to clear.. lol!
  3. Beer with lunch earliest for me. I am someone who will drink even Poors Light with gratitude if that is all there is available as long as it is cold.
  4. @Vinsk they are all dime a dozen until they are not. Don't know a great deal about him but seems like all the tools for pga tour level career are there. He does seem a bit raw but is just a teen. All we can hope is that he has a solid support system that will see him through his learning phase. Having said that because of the prevalent parity on tour lately I think it unwise to think someone who can move a ball like he can has no chance of winning for another 3-4 years. He seems fun to watch though.
  5. I have a five-six years ago when I was always game for trying anything that made immediate sense. Anecdotally it is not a bad image for folks who have a tendency to scoop/flip at impact. But IMO it's hardly comes close to curing many fundamentally bad tendencies lot of us have. Come to find out it didn't cure any of my backswing bad habits like a flat swaying at take away. I had to and am still am working to be mindful of Keys 1 and 2 independent of all other aspects. Hammering a nail is a 'mechanical image'. AOA, face direction, club direction, speed,etc are all mechanical aspects of a swing. Not knocking anything here, just that he is over the 10% pure mechanics quota right outta gates, no? Bottom line is, the image is fine, but I would caution anyone who would somehow think rest of the steps from address onwards automatically map themselves - especially the backswing pieces. Oh how I wish though..
  6. I have a simplistic view of this. Take the belly out of the way or swing over it. Seems like he is already doing the later. Albeit, from my understanding a rounded upper back with arms over the chest is a much better structure than overly bending from the base of the spine, relatively speaking.
  7. 1-3... Only because I couldn't vote 0.25. I'm good for couple a solid shots a round, but 'pure' is another level IMO.
  8. Four eagles on short par 5s (450ish yards) and one on short par 4 (240 yards). Only one of the putts was what I would consider makable - inside of 10 ft. So yeah, almost all of them had one recurring theme - start with short and end with luck.
  9. I guess one thing comes to memory is a few years ago I played a round with a couple from up in Wisconsin. Long story short I kept driving to my ball after the husband and I teed off without waiting for his wife to tee off completely out of forgetfulness. The husband didn't say anything but she finally said "Excuse me, I haven't teed off yet, would you please mind waiting?". I have never felt like a bigger bonehead. Of course I apologized profusely for a couple of holes but I could tell she was a bit indignant for a while. She probably thought I was a sexist jerk. Was a good lesson in mindfulness for me.
  10. Only slight overrated. I don't think there is any more buzz around it than it did. It's not like they pulled in 'million dollah sponsors' or anything to begin with. I don't blame Inkster and Co. for overselling it a bit. I would if I were her. But yeah, the whole things a bit meh.
  11. That was a complete surprise for sure. After Salas's win, I was about to get up and get back to chores resolved to another ho-hum US win. Anyway, good for Pettersen. She was made out to be the unsporting villain in 2017 and now she has comeback as the hero. Fun all around. I know Lexi was injured and did not seem to be a factor, but golly that was some horrid amateurish putting who does this for a living. I mean even the best of them are going to miss a few but haven't seen a worse stroke in a while. Wie made every excuse on earth for her in the post event conference on GC.
  12. Control what you have control over. I think find a new crowd. The game is humbling for sure but humiliation from others not necessary at all. No need to feed jerks.
