    Another Penalty for Lexi Thompson

    That’s irrelevant. The rule was posted and provided for the players prior to the tournament. This is due to perhaps a player ‘never hearing of such a rule.’

    Another Penalty for Lexi Thompson

    I realize it’s ultimately the player’s responsibility. And I know some players if not most have only a reasonable understanding of the rules as far as the more common conditions that arise. But you’d think when a tournament posts a local rule(s) the player and caddie would pay particular attention to it. And when the article states Lexi ‘just shook her head and laughed at her gaffe’ I wonder if that was her true sentiment? Being how she handled the ANA incident I’m speculating it was more of a ‘ boy they really wanna get me huh?’ Total speculation of course but we all saw how she played the victim last time.

    Humidity revelation...

    I wish I had tried those. I had a beautiful set of Pure Grips I put on (from reading on TST) and in the summer I just couldn’t keep my hand on the club. Slick as hell. I switched to Golf Pride Z Cord which are great but pretty rough on the hands.

    Another Penalty for Lexi Thompson

    She’s lucky too. Imagine If she wasn’t notified so quickly and after signing her card an official says, ‘uh...Lexi..’

    2018 US Amateur - Pebble Beach

    He didn’t go back to the porta-John then get a ride back. He had stopped at the Porta-John then took the cart to catch up. So he didn’t walked the hole completely.
  7. I’m pretty sure Mizuno offers plenty of shaft options including DG S300.

    How to become successful in golf at 17

    Also keep in mind there are other ways to make golf your life without being a touring pro.
  9. Hello and welcome to TST. The picture isn’t really a good angle. A video posted on ‘My Swing’ thread would be much more helpful. For now I’d start here:

    "Swing Machine Golf" by Paul Wilson

    I didn’t spin anything. Look, I have absolutely nothing against PW. Do you understand that? This is to discuss PW Swing Machine. It’s not a thread created to shower him with love and affection and attest to his unparalleled wisdom of the golf swing. I’ve repeatedly given PW credit where it was due. He does any entire segment regarding impact to which as another member quoted as ‘rubbish.’ Which it is. And even if I misquoted (I didn’t) or if I was wrong about a technicality (I’m not) then he’s more than welcome to explain his views. Why is that so hard for you to understand?

    "Swing Machine Golf" by Paul Wilson

    Hopefully so. I haven’t read any of his newest material. But it’s unfortunate he posted here and just ran off when offered a discussion. He and others missed out on a good discussion. @iacas would be more than willing to discuss swing mechanics I’m sure. The 5SK doesn’t have anything to debate as it’s based on research and just plain facts as proven over and over again by video and monitors. How one achieves the 5SK is where the diversity can come about. And I think this is always an educational experience. Some are just too stubborn and that’s a shame.

    Wedge gapping

    It’s really just an individual preference. Have you taken your PW, 56 to the range to see what your yardages are? That would certainly help. Many players can have a wide range for each club based on choking down, length of backswing. I wouldn’t worry about the spacing regarding numbers but more on how you play each wedge and see where the gaps are.

    "Swing Machine Golf" by Paul Wilson

    I think this is fine. Some people have taken offense to our reviews. Which makes no sense. It’s just that, a review. As I’ve mentioned he explains some aspects in a clear way. Others he is just plain wrong. Simple as that. In PW video from Swing Machine he actually discusses ‘why impact isn’t important.’ PW’s explanation clearly shows he doesn’t understand the ball flight laws. So in that segment he is doling out inaccurate information. Not everyone is like you and able to sort out what’s good and what’s bad. And this shouldn’t be a concern when you’re paying someone. Sure there can be personality issues where one instructor is simply able to ‘get through’ to someone better but the information being given should be accurate. When I ask @iacas a question regarding the golf swing I know I’m getting an answer that he can back up with facts, stats and research (which 5SK is based on). And although PW Swing Machine does have some accurate information it also has some inaccurate which I don’t agree should happen when you’re paying for it.

    Suffer from Back Pain? Try this.

    I am a doctor. There has been some pretty extensive research to inversion therapy for back pain. Unfortunately long term relief hasn’t been shown by any degree. Also, you should avoid this if you have glaucoma, heart disease or hypertension. Relieving pressure on the spine through inversion has shown some short term relief definitely. But consider the above mentioned.
  15. Lol. That’s Joe for ya.
