  1. There are many, many options for grips to where I can’t imagine you need tennis tape. Some real good ones: Pure Grips: They’ll last the longest. Golf Pride Z Cord: They are as corded as they come. Rough and good for wet conditions, high sweat times. Winn Dry-Tach: Feel really nice.
  2. Yes. The only issue with putting it on a club other than the putter would be if the grip tape began to come off it might be deemed as ‘altering’ the club. Not likely to happen with the low impact with a putter but could happen with another club. I used Babalot tape on a wedge years ago and had no problems however. Sí. El único problema con ponerlo en un club que no sea el putter sería si la cinta de agarre comenzara a desprenderse, se podría considerar como "alteración" del club. No es probable que ocurra con el bajo impacto con un putter, pero podría ocurrir con otro club. Usé la cinta de Babalot en una cuña hace años y sin embargo no tuve problemas.

  4. If it feels good or comfortable, it’s wrong. If you go meticulously through a large bucket hitting beautiful iron shots, your video will show you’ve made zero progress. Then when frustration has reached its boiling point (so you think) you’ll make what feels like a ridiculous exaggeration of a move and again video will show you’ve made no changes. None. Zero. Once you finally twist yourself into the most uncomfortable position you can muster, you’ll have no ability to make any type of swing and hit the ball. If you shank it you swung well. If you stripe it.. you messed up somewhere. So you wanna go at this on your own? Enjoy. Cry if you must, for the oceans are thirsty.
  5. Hello and welcome to TST. Many people under estimate the difference a shaft can make. I really recommend you go for a fitting and see what gives you the best results. The flex of a shaft varies from one brand to the next. Stiff for one may be regular in another. Generally speaking I believe stiffer shafts are suited better for faster swing speeds. Not knowing where you are makes it difficult to know what’s best for you. Take the time and get some testing done on a monitor and see what you come up with. Now if there’s no way in hell you're gonna get a fitting changing to the R flex from your S flex would most likely be the direction to go. Again, that’s a very general guess. Cheers!
  6. I wasn’t able to see any of it. How was his driving?
  7. They’re never gonna get it Phil. Unless they can transport Jack or Tiger through a time machine and see how they do they’re gonna continue to hold that we can’t know. They’ve become Flat Earthers in this debate.
  8. As @Grizvok stated, start a ‘My swing’ thread and you’ll get some excellent swing advice. Take a look at this thread too. Now I understand you were ‘feeling’ you were making brief swings. But in your video you are making very little shoulder turn and essentially lifting your arms up and a little back. You then release early and flip through the ball causing your club head to over take your hands and chicken winging your lead arm. Check out the link I posted regarding the centered pivot.
  9. Hello my friend. Look, I’m happy for ya. I really am. Golf is a cruel and cynical world and the golf gods never cease to punish us at our moments of glory. But hey, let’s see the video and hopefully you’ve managed to ‘change the picture’ meaning, you can actually see a difference from this swing to your previous swings besides just being shorter. Now I mean no harm, and no ill intentions are here. I’m a mess when it comes to making real swing changes and I hope like hell you’ve done a better job than I. Enjoy the feeling and post your video and let’s see what you’ve got going on there. 😃
  10. Probably only Cameron and JS can answer that. Certainly not you or I.
  11. Actually no, I don’t. And statistics do not reflect ‘mental aspects.’ There is no SG Mental toughness’ stat.
  12. Well we all know the importance of distance for sure. But it seems odd that after 2015 JS would think his play needed improvement. You’d think he’d realize his current game at that time was more than efficient to compete. What made you think he tried to improve his distance? Did this come out somewhere? I agree. Certainly not with someone like JS.
  13. Pretty hard to assess that really. And if you asked that friend who played with him and made that claim what would he say? ‘His ball striking was below average but he was mentally strong.’ Ok. Meaning what? Because whatever answer he would give would probably be reflective of how Spieth is acting and has been acting this whole time. Spieth is struggling with his mechanics. I don’t his mental state has anything to do with how he’s playing. It may play a role in how he’s responding to his swing troubles. But I don’t believe his playing troubles are a mental issue by any means.
  14. I’m glad you love your clubs. What I would recommend is that you get some proper instruction. If you’re averaging 116mph SS and you hit your 7i 200yds yet you’re shooting In the 90’s....yeah ...it’s time to get lessons. Don’t let that enormous talent go down the rabbit hole of compensating swings.
  15. As soon as you hit a bad shot you just say out loud to yourself, ‘Damn, it sure is hard trying to swing opposite handed.’
  16. I think, other than the obvious it being a Major, this US OPEN will really set a tone for Speith. He finally played some decent golf at BPB. I think he's really looking to come out strong here.
  17. @boogielicious will probably have a great answer for you.
  18. I honestly wish I felt like this. My worst day of golf, which I've had many of (lol) is not enjoyable for me by any means. I've said this before, I can enjoy the outdoors, look at lakes, ponds, wildlife, walk and breathe the nice air in a multitude of ways in just as many places. That's not why I tee it up. When I play it's a test of all the hours and thousands of balls I've hit to improve my game. When I fail miserably there is no joy at all. Now of course my bad days probably exceed those of many in that I am the shank master, king of the hill, head and shoulders above all else. Once the virus sets in, it's pure violence and desecration to all modern geometry and physics. I lose balls and my hands are as bruised as my ego. I'm sticky hot and tired. And I paid for it.
  19. I get this but what @Patch said was that every GOAT gets replaced. You replied sometimes they don’t. I can’t think of any that haven’t. So by what has occurred it’s a pretty accurate statement I believe. I think it’s an interesting question. What GOAT in any sport still remains as the GOAT. Jack was obviously replaced by Tiger. Gretzky? I don’t know hockey at all.
  20. Well that’s certainly not the norm. Naproxen is prescribed as 500mg tablets twice a day with the absolute maximum being 1500mg/day. OTC Naproxen (Aleve) is 220mg tablets. So taking 4 ( 880mg) twice a day (1760mg) is not only above the maximum dose, studies show going over the 1500mg Max shows no therapeutic advantage and only worsened the side effects /untoward effects. Just saying....
  21. Well PB has 118 bunkers to BP 78 (and half of those don’t really factor in a PGA TOUR). The greens are much smaller at PB and there is plenty of ways to lose a ball. BP was mostly tight with rough. I just don’t think BK will gamble as much with driver at PB.
  22. You have been respectful and there are no issues there. And of course you can post all you want. My point is that this isn’t a 3 scenario topic. The question is whether you believe Tiger or Jack is the GOAT. An opinion of ‘Ill never claim anyone as such’ is actually what’s futile. This just isn’t the thread for you. Your stance is 100% opinion. Many facts have been presented here that make a more than reasonable basis to actually compare the two. You accept none of them. And that’s fine. But it certainly limits your discussion on a topic that asks ‘which one’ and you say neither. No hard feelings at all. As I said, you’ve been quite cordial and respectful.
  23. Well sure but those are long holes. PB will just be too short for him on many holes considering the risks.
