    Heckled More At Riviera: Kuchar Or Garcia

    Never good to disrespect or take advantage of people. He shorted the caddie. Kuchar has lost my respect.

    2019 Phoenix Open

    Congrats! It was a tough 4th round tho. That 7 he took on the back nine could have derailed him but he took it in stride, regrouped and won.

    Redefine Loose Impediments

    Rent the Hummer golf cart, throw a chain around it and drag it out.

    Redefine Loose Impediments

    Good points. So how long do I get to round up enough guys to move the boulder? And who carries the liability in case someone gets injured doing it? Sticks and twigs are one thing, boulders are another

    Redefine Loose Impediments

    This is NOT specific to Brooks Koepka, just a general observation Today Brooks Koepka hit his tee shot into an area that had a boulder in it. It took about a half dozen guys to move this boulder. Under rule 15 he gets to do this with no penalty. I think this is ridiculous. Lets redefine loose impediment as something movable by the player unassisted. Anything else is a immovable obstruction and would fall under rule 16. Rationale: Tournament players have access to assistance from their caddie, marshals, and spectators to assist with moving heavy, large objects. The average weekend player does not. So the current definition of loose impediment allows an advantage during tournament play that may not be available in other situations.

    2019 Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines

    Rahm lit it up yesterday on the North Course but the South Course is playing really tough. Watching Tiger, he might want to leave the flag in on those long putts. He is lipping out and missing too many birdie chances.

    Importance of Strike on Distance

    Yes. I had a beautiful swing that never had power in the strike zone. I was swinging from the ground up but I had no understanding of how to deliver the clubhead to the ball. Some lessons and working on path, clubface and ball position changed all of that for me.

    Shanking My Wedge

    What Buckeybowman said!
  10. A puzzle. Is your ballflight the same? Maybe play the up tees for a round to see if that makes a difference. That is my novice advice.
  11. @DeadMan, if I get to denver and hitting 250 with my driver I would take line A on your course. Then go right away from the water. As a lefty I could push my shot into the drink. Laying up to 100 yards. Then I can flag hunt if the pin is not tight otherwise I am just going to get it on the green and two putt.

    Playing with Irons Only

    I learned to hit my irons better by focusing on hitting my driver. Weird huh. I used to practice starting PW and working my way to the driver. Not getting any better I reversed the order. And now what my instructor was telling me makes sense. Dont give up on the driver. I played four rounds with my buddies in florida last week and the driver helped knock 12 shots per round off my scores from last year.

    Favorite Thing About Golf

    An activity I share with my son.
  15. I sliced so badly that if it stayed in the air longer it would have been a boomerange. 140 yds max with the ball spinning and rolling dead left after landing (I am a leftee). I appreciate my playing partners for putting up with that. Anyway if she had that grooved then no problem. If I had been helping her look for her ball for 4+ hours (which you were not) I would have been annoyed.
