  1. I understand the reason for the rule change and why they chose to change it. But, depending on where the ball is being dropped, it really won't matter at what height it would be released from. In some cases there is going to be some roll out, no matter what height the ball is dropped.
  2. The rules are the rules and I will follow them. But maybe they should've stated that you could drop from shoulder height to the knee and had been a little more flexible on the rule. Just a thought.
  3. I don't think I'd pay $40k for a set of irons. Justin Rose can afford them, because Honma developed them for Rose. And since he endorses them...so he gets his for free. I'll keep my set of Cobra and bank the $40k.
  4. Her parents knew exactly what they were doing. They saw a chance for some exposure, if nothing else. But just like the old follow the money game. I'm sure the LPGA will get all the facts.
  5. Maybe they just don't understand physics, so they wouldn't have anything to talk to him about. Like him or not, he's got a great game and a unique approach to it.
  6. Looks to be a good ration on practice. I'll try this and see how well it works.
  7. After watching some of the pros playing Riviera this weekend. I saw some of them taking very little to no divot, while others taking dollar size divots. So I would imagine it would depend on the player and what they are comfortable with. I usually take the dollar sized or as friends I play with call them beaver pelts.
  8. Which type of grass do you prefer to roll the rock on and why??? I grew up on bent, so it's a little easier for me to read. Sometimes you'll get the occasional optical illusion.
  9. Crenshaw has used a Wilson 8802 on and off for over 40 yrs, one he received as a 15th birthday present. I use a Wilson Tour Special ll, which is a very similar putter. I have a Wilson 8813 and a Ping Pal 2 BeCu. There is no doubt the game has changed...clubs are better, training is better, courses are more groomed than they used to be. The changes in technology is mind boggling. Video was just starting to creep onto the scene back in the mid 70's. We didn't have rangefinders, swing analysis software, etc.
  10. The reference of debate wasn't directed towards you, V.
  11. This wasn't intended to be a debate. But I'm sitting here watching Gary Nicklaus at -5 in a Champions Tour event.
  12. No mark was added, but for those type putts I'm pretty consistent.
  13. First off, thank you for your reply. I'm talking between center line and the toe. Exactly how Crenshaw played it. 3-6' putts...not 12-18" away Thanks for the reply. I will try new things or methods to the game. When I do make a change it is usually because of advice from professionals. Club or Tour Pro understand the game at a completely different level. I listen to Nicklaus (greatest clutch putter of all time), Seve (best short game ever), Crenshaw (overall greatest putter all time), Trevino (greatest shot maker/shaper)
  14. Maybe read the context of the post before replying. Didn't say you have to use the method. Basically wqas asking what other techniques used may be.
