    Finger Down the Shaft Putting

    I see Koepka putting with his finger down the shaft this week. Is this something new, or has he been doing this for some time now?

    A wedge spending decision

    I love the Taylormade Milled Grind wedges. I swapped out my 60* and 52* with the Milled Grind (coming from Nike's) and have not missed a beat with them. Highly recommend giving them a look.

    Titleist vs Taylormade Irons

    You are a 6 handicap...how are you not good enough to play a blade?? If its preference, I get it, but don't sell yourself short by saying you aren't good enough to play a blade. I started playing blades about 8-9 years ago when I was about a 10-12 handicap. Bought a set of Nike TW Blades. Rode them down to about a 4 handicap. Next set was the Nike VR Pro blades and rode them down to a 1 handicap. Just recently upgraded to the Callaway Apex MB irons...hoping to ride them into the plus handicaps. I would go to a golf shop and hit some blades, you might be surprised at how well you hit them. It has made me put some work into making center face contact which has improved my game. Best thing to do is to go get fitted. Go with an open mind and not be focused on a specific brand.
  4. Has this been brought up before? Ok, here's the scenario. Guy hitting his 2nd shot into a par 5. Uphill, blind shot with a hazard in front of the green. Guy hits shot, but can not tell if it cleared the hazard. We get to green, se no ball on, cant find a ball anywhere over the green either, so he assumes ball didnt clear the hazard. Drops and hits 4th shot into hole for birdie. When going to the flag to retrieve his ball from the hole, there are 2 balls in the cup. The other was his first shot. He holed out his first ball, but dropped because he couldn't find it, then holed his dropped bats well. Guy in the group says he made a 4 since he abandoned the first ball, but I said since first ball was in the hole, he had already completed the hole, and the 2 should stand. Who's correct?

    Question on Lost Ball Inbounds

    Nope...not to be an ass, but take some time to get some control with your driver...I have spent countless hours at the range for the purpose of hitting a controlled drive that I know will find the fairway...probably about a 70% swing (problem is I don't use it like I should...haha). I, like many others, have played with a lot of people that when they go to search for their ball in the rough they are about 15-20+ yards ahead of where we eventually end up finding their ball. I think this would just create a lot of people saying "eff it" and trying to take a drop 20+ yards ahead of where their ball really was.

    What happens in this situation?

    Thanks @Missouri Swede! I searched many different things, but couldn’t get it to come up. Appreciate it!
  7. Not sure if this has been posted before. I searched and couldn’t find anything. What’s the situation here. Is this holed or no? I know the picture is or looks to be fake as there is no shadow for the pin, but that’s not the point.

    Match Play Opponent "Too Nice" - Gamesmanship?

    There are lots of different ways of gamesmanship in match play. I used to hate match play with a passion, because I would always get in my own way and just blow up or get antsy if I was down a hole or 2. I won our clubs match play tourney last year and was 3 down going into the back 9 to a very good and very long player. I just waited patiently for him to make a mistake and then would capitalize on it. Ended up winning 2up. After playing 5 matches or so last year, match play is now fun to me. I love the guys that watch you roll a put 1-2' by the hole, watch you mark it, they putt out and then as you are looking at your putt and get ready to hit it they tell you "its good". It drives me crazy, but its another little way to make you sweat a little bit and maybe take you off your game a little bit.
  9. You want your upper back to be turned towards the target, no? Did you mean towards the target, or am I reading into this the wrong way?

    I've created a way to build a golf swing!!!!!

    Haha, sorry! Saw a guy at the range that had a very similar swing and it made me think of this thread. He must be off winning events on the Web . com tour by now..

    I've created a way to build a golf swing!!!!!

    I wonder how @JoeB from Tennessee has been playing lately, what new "revolutionary" golf swing/system he is on to now? If he ever tried to qualify for a Web.com tourney...

    2018 British Open Championship at Carnoustie

    This Open was the deepest field of the season if not the deepest of the past couple seasons and Tiger, just 12 events back from a couple year layoff, had the solo lead heading into the back 9 on a Sunday...Not saying its going to be easy for him as it isn't for anyone, but his performance (minus a couple holes on the back 9) this weekend was pretty darn good. It wasn't even anything really special, just good solid golf. If he can get his driver figured out (IF) he will be in contention a lot I believe. 4 top 10 finishes in 12 events is a pretty good accomplishment so far this year. He might even squeak out a win this year still.

    2018 British Open Championship at Carnoustie

    I disagree with this as far as a "reasonable probability this was his last good chance to win a major". He is 12 events back from a couple year layoff, and had the solo lead midway through the final round of a major. He has the ability to go out and shoot a 65 as we have already seen...He's building upon each tournament he plays as of late, and if not for a couple wayward tee shots and the infamous flop disaster we might be talking about Tiger with 15 majors. I think this week will do a lot for him in his comeback, and I think he may just go out and win in Akron.

    The flagstick

    I meant for me as far as tending the pin from off the green goes. I hate someone standing by the pin when I am putting or chipping. Do you think that the amount of strokes it has cost me taking it out on uphill chips negates with the amount it has cost me on downhill chips that have glanced off the pin and stayed out? I’ll have to take a look at that thread. The picture looks interesting.

    2018 British Open Championship at Carnoustie

    Ya, I think he’s starting to realize that he needs to get to -6 or so to have a sniff at tomorrow. Also, his 3 birdies have come when he has hit either 3w or driver off the tee...
