  1. But... that is where you’ll shave strokes. I was only illustrating the point improving your short game is a much less difficult and time consuming task than improving your full swing. But the full swing is where the majority of the strokes are.
  2. If you are 30 yards longer off the tee, and still losing, your short game must be quite terrible. You should get better at that, because it’s certainly a lot easier for you to improve your short game than it is for them to gain 30 yards.

    14 rules of golf Etiquette

    This is all great, in theory, but it really only applies to good ranges. At my range, everything is bad. People take massive divots with no discernible method to their madness. But, then to top it off, each day they just move the ropes back about 2 feet. So there’s a fresh piece of sod to chew up with your clubs, but your front foot is just digging into yesterday’s divot holes, making yesterday’s damage significantly worse. I’ve tried to make suggestions to them, tried to help. But, to no avail.

    New Ping i500 Irons, Lost Distance

    Are you deriving this new distance based on one trip to the driving range? Did you also hit your Mizunos while you were there? If the answer is Yes, no, then it could be any number of things. could've been some wind up high coming at you that you didn't notice. could've been warn down or limited flight range balls. or, maybe, you just weren't swinging very well that day. could be a bunch of things. but, don't make judgements based on one trip to the range.

    2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National - Paris, France

    Probably sprinting right past the point here. The point simply being that a lot of people and pundits are suggesting that this course was set up well for the shorter players to succeed. But, it’s not about short or long. It’s about who can manage their drives and find the fairways. Thomas not only managed the course well, but was able to use his length to an advantage as well. As did Rory on Sunday, by the way. I think either of those players would have won 3&2 or better had they been playing anyone other than each other.

    Sorry, let me rephrase. Justin Thomas is one of the longest hitters on tour.

    Justin Thomas is arguably our longest hitter. His length did seem to hinder his game out there. Played quite well, actually.

    cool. now if I could learn to just hit a ball 2-3 yards from where I'm aiming, I'll be all set.

    2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National - Paris, France

    One item that is interesting and is not being discussed is.. Justin Thomas was going to take Patrick Reed’s ‘captain America’ title this weekend. Everyone on the team likes him, and he’s a much better golfer than Patrick Reed is. And, he’s a proven good team golfer. This is probably what pisses Patrick reed off. Spieth and JT were 3-1. JT beats Rory. Everyone likes JT. And Reed fades into oblivion. Now, Reed has to be top 8 or he doesn’t make the team. After his and is cooky wife’s comments this week, I doubt he’s a captains pick even if he’s #9. He’s done. Also, no one noticed that all his their comments about how he got hosed by not being paired with Spieth are derivatively a direct shot at Tiger. Don’t f*** with the goat, lest you never play in the Ryder again.

    Moreover, he was an automatic pick this time, but it’s not like he’s a lock to be automatic pick for the next. He’s a fringe top 8 guy. And, if he handled it all with a bit more class, his reputation as a good Ryder cup player may well earn him a captains pick. Now, I simply can’t see a captain taking him. Even if he’s #9.

    On that note, I don’t think it is coincidence at all that JT came out and played the French open this year and was USAs best player this weekend. Moreover,.. dj, spieth, Ricky.. you guys all knew you were on this team. Why didn’t you do that?
