  1. I've never been a huge Speith guy, and was never quite sure why. Today has cemented it for me. I still can't quite place it. Something in his demeanor just rubs me the wrong way.
  2. You are probably correct, but his name will be repeated over and over again at every major. If the record stands the test of time his name will be well known. I'm on team Kuch today. Would love to see him finally win one.
  3. He's now a name...... Pretty obvious, no?
  4. People are scoring this morning It seems like people are making moves, but none of it will matter if the conditions are the same when the leaders tee off.
  5. I signed the petition but do not think it will be successful. Just the other day I heard one of the officials rave about that particular rule change on Golf Channel.
  6. Had the day off due to guests coming into town but they had to cancel at the last minute. I'm not complaining about having nothing to do on this particular Friday morning/afternoon.
  7. Agreed. I do a lot of non-ball contact work in my garage (sometimes with a foam ball as well) on a mat and I can easily identify the fat wings from the true swings.
  8. I have to admit to spitting a little coffee out of my mouth on this one. Well done :) Jack: I wouldn't dare try to add much, but I can say from the work I've been doing that allowing that right leg to straighten has really helped me a lot. You've got some great feedback above. Good luck!
  9. Can Phil play day 1 without a driver and then decide to put it in the bag on day 2?
  10. I could have starred in "Prison Break" if it was based on poor golfers.
  11. So I got out today at a reasonable hour and was able to play at a measured pace. No rushing. Took my time around the greens. Played the course and did not force my driver into holes where it did not belong. Ended up having a nice day on the course but unfortunately the back 9 was played through a steady drizzel. I'm not sure if that affected me or not. I guess maybe on my putting because I really had the green speed down after having played it yesterday and as the rain continued they slowed down a bit and I didn't have quite the same touch that I did on the front (but that's really nitpicking). All in all it was a mixed day. My driver was not very good, nor was it horrible. My irons went from great to bad by hole and my play around the greens was basically good with a couple really bad blow-up shots that ended up costing me multiple strokes. Bottom line was a 47-49 96. I definitely faded down the stretch. Now that my work road-trip is coming to an end I plan on getting back into my practice regimen. 3 days in a row is a lot of play for me and I could feel the swing getting away from me a bit with each passing day. I wont get to even get to the range until next week so I am going to go back to my wall drills, mirror work, posture etc and see what the next range session brings. I definitely feel like my game has improved from when I started my swing thread, but I have a long way to go. The good news is that I have not carded >100 in a while and before I started this I was struggling to break 100.
  12. Note to self: Never get giddy. I got to my next work destination a little early and went to the course expecting to just hit a bucket, but ended up going out for another round instead since I had just enough daylight. It was another rushed round but I played ok for the most part. When it came to the driver though I was extremely inconsistent and just never could capture what I had going the last few sessions. I think I know what was going on and just need to get out to the range to re-ground myself. Everything just felt sloppy and rushed. Tomorrow is another day.
  13. I'm interested in this as well as all of my struggles have been with consistency of my full swing. I'm still working on the full swing and have a ways to go, but I'm sure there are other areas I will need to turn my attention to as the full swing starts to take up less of my time. I always say I am pretty good around the green with my short game (pitches/chips etc.) but I am sure there is room for a lot of improvement. The game is so nuanced that I doubt a recreational player will ever truly be able to practice every aspect that is required to excel. For now, if I can start breaking 90 fairly consistently I will be content. I certainly won't be giving this too much thought until I am starting to push into the lower 80's is my guess.
  14. I have to admit to being genuinely giddy over my last two rounds. I really want to get some video up of the way I am swinging to see if it is any different than my recent videos. I feel as if I am really staying steady with my head. None of my old faults are showing up in terms of the result, but until I get some video up and receive some feedback on it I don't want to get too far ahead of myself.
