  1. There is no spirit to this rule. it is one of the black and white rules. If you or your caddie touches the bunker before the shot you violated the rule. There is no intent in this rule. But yes, this is clearly not the reason for the rule. the rule is there to prevent someone from gaining an advantage. But the way the rule is written there is no intent or advantage to rule on
  2. I find music helpful to quiet my mind while trying to take my swing from technical to natural
  3. Depends on where in the Detroit area you go. I am near Ann Arbor. Leslie Park, StoneBridge Eagle Crest Washtenaw Country Club Pierce Lake Link at Taylor Any Interest in this?
  4. It sounds alot like Tiger having issues with cameras clicking during his backswing. Or people moving. He is hyper focused, a tiny glitch leads to a poor shot that could cost him $100Ks so I hope he grows out of it but it is hard to say it isn't understandable.
  5. It depends on how close the reality is to the feel. Some changes are instant, you make the change, it feels right and it just becomes normal. Others are hard to feel the right way to do something. In that case first you need to find what the right and wrong way feel like. That can take time. Then you need to be able to do it right all the time with the new feel. Then that new feel needs to become the new normal. That could be just having a new feel to the swing or it could be making the feel just your swing. I am in the middle of a change. For me I knew the right motion. I could manufacture it using tools. Then I found a feel for the right movement. Now I am in the phase where I can find the right feel 80% of the time but it is still my "new swing". Next phase is to be able to find the feel at will with all clubs. Then we will see if it is ever without thought or I just learn to play with the new feel.
  6. Thanks I spent most of the winter working on the stroke. Lots of focus on rock back and let the putter weight do the work. I found out that I was hitting it so on short putts it was getting jumpy. Been doing a lot of work on the swing speed, body stability and staying on the plane. Swing feels good but need to get out and play more. The 30 day COVID challenge was really solid
  7. Have a great time. Father/child times are amazing and special. Playing golf is a small perk.
  8. Thought that using the information was assumed but TRUE. I began to understand the concept of strokes gained and separation value last year and went from 7.5 to 4.3 by refocusing most or all my efforts on better contact and a more predictable shot shape. And did it with a bad putting year (meaning missing 1-2 putts inside 4' per round)
  9. Go read the Book. Separation value. You do hit a lot of putts each round but the difference between and average putter and a great putter is just not that big.
  10. Start with finding where they are now. Set up to a target. Put a club or alignment stick on the target line, against your heels and across your shoulders. They should be close to parallel. After that if you are pulling the ball then club path and face are left of the target. To put the ball on the target line the face should be closer to the target line than the path.
  11. Clearing a corner should be evaluated as a BIG risk/reward. What do you really gain vs how well do you need to hit the shot.
  12. If you hit more on the upswing, the club will be more closed compared to the swing path. It puts the ball further forward in the arc.
  13. Sounds like a ton of fun. I'd be interested If PA can get anyone to play with them like New Jersey maybe we could do a bigger event
  14. Always go back to the basics. For me that starts with setup, weight shift and contact working on 90 90 swings for contact with a 7i trying to hit a small draw 75 yards. I lay down a pair of alignment sticks and tee up every ball. I will hot 50-75 balls like that each day making sure that the ball starts right of target and comes back. After that I like step drills (feet together, swing the club forward 12", and back, step and swing smoothly) and pump-pump-pump-release drill (Take it to the top and shift the hips, drop the hands 3X, then swing through). Just what works for me to help get the sequence and rhythm back.
