    What's your biggest problem in golf?

    Fairway bunker shots; anywhere from 200 yds down to 100 yds

    When does a fade/draw turn into a slice/hook?

    The simple answer is that a fade/draw is controlled by the player; an intentional, controlled slight curve. A slice/hook is not controlled by the player, it's a wild, huge curve compared to a fade/draw.

    2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills

    DJ is stalking around the course like a panther, knowing he owns it. Playing under par, smashing drives straight & long, easily hitting greens, making putts. He's the #1 total badass on tour right now and he's looking to add another major to his resume.

    Blow up the 1st hole, Woods makes triple bogey/double bogey = +5. That's half of his total of +10 Starting to look like Woods might have a short week.

    OK, this is the post that started this discussion. I'm talking about someone who's never played Shinnecock and will play it from the US Open tees under today's conditions. Someone who got their 10 hdcp from playing much easier and shorter courses in their area. That person would not be a 10 hdcp at Shinnecock.

    I totally understand/appreciate because i am one. I make pars and i make birdies - on the courses i play that are far shorter and far easier with a far less severe penalty for wayward shots than Shinnecock was today. Just because i can par/birdie some holes on a 6600 yd course with little to no rough, very gentle greens - that roll much slower, bunkers that are much less severe, and etc. doesn't mean i would make pars & birdies at Shinnecock. It's about 800 yds longer with extremely severe rough and difficult green complexes that are confounding the best in the game. The top 10 in the world ranking shot +50 something over par today, an avg of 75+ for the top 10 players in the world. The field had 193 double bogeys or worse today. That's incredible.

    Or courses that are 7400 yds, where you must carry tee shots 250 yds on some holes just to reach the fairway. I've put a number on it (124 at best - triple bogey/hole) what do you think a 10 hdcp would shoot at Shinnecock today?

    Which you would likely never make and more likely 3 putt for double.

    Further proof for my point that a 10 hdcp would have great difficulty making a par.

    Rory had 3 doubles in his first 11 holes. And i would seriously question if a 10 would make an occassional par; thats approx what i am and what i've seen so far there's no way i could par any of these holes. A 250 yd par 3? I'd hit driver and come up short. A 535 yd par 4? Ridiculous; 90% of the par 5's i play are that length or shorter. The severity of the rough compared to what most 'average joe 10 hdcp' plays, the slopes and run offs around the greens, the speed of the greens. The only way a 10 handicap would make a par would be a lucky chip in.

    My guess is that you would do well to average triple bogey per hole. Sounds crazy but the best players in the world are throwing double bogeys up on the board like they're pars. Triple bogey every hole is +54, which equates to 124 (Par 70). So my guess is your best would be to break 125, more likely to shoot over 130.

    Do you call him Tigs? I've never seen or heard anyone call him Tigs.

    Watched the Celebration of Champions on FS1 this afternoon; the course looks brutal. I'm starting to think this is going to be one of those "even par wins" type of Opens.

    2018 Fed Ex St. Jude Classic

    Just a ho-hum 6 shot victory for Dustin, holing out on 18 for an eagle to cap it off. Add another win to his career resume, a million bucks to his bank account, a buttload of FedEx Cup points, and a boost to #1 in the OWGR. It's all good for DJ. Now he can take all that plus his good form and a ton of positive momentum to Shinnecock.
