  1. You need to supply more information. Why do you ask if you should buy something different?
  2. A guaranteed to way to improve is to ignore people who've never seen you hit a ball diagnose your problem and tell you what to do and seek help from someone who can actually watch you hit balls. A decent teacher will be able to help you after seeing you hit two balls. And that's only to confirm what they saw on the first swing. Someone who has not ever seen you play has no idea, because for all they know you might be doing something outrageously incorrect. How would they know you're getting "stuck on the downswing"or something? And telling you to exercise a "reverse pivot". Seriously?? My guess is also that irons and chipping are not "good", but your lack of experience makes you think they are. Save yourself years of frustration and have a lesson. Best not to ask people who don't have a clue about your game.
  3. What complete and utter horsesh*t. At 17, only a fool would have bet that Rory or Tiger would not be #1 in the world at some stage. At the moment, you wouldn't bet money on Bhatia playing on the PGATour in 5 years time.
  4. What? There's a lot of good Indian food in Britain because a lot of people with Indian heritage live there. Not because it was a colony. That explains why they play cricket in India.
  5. I would be looking for a morbidly obese golfer to lose weight to help him in all aspects of his life rather than modify a golf swing to fit an unhealthy body. You seem to be implying that weight loss isn't an option. If he's prepared to change his golf swing because of an unhealthy lifestyle he should be even more prepared to take his health seriously.
  6. And more money means more stars. It's a chicken and the egg thing. But combining men's and women's golf does nothing except diminish both. Young women will want to play because they see someone who they admire and can look up to, not because they see women playing alongside men. And if the money's good there's an added incentive, which attracts more players.
  7. Perhaps you should read my post. McIlroy would rather have a single major in a year, sure. - Hence my Norman example. Fact is, Rory had a better year than Koepka and was clearly POTY. Especially if the PGATour want to pretend that The Players is a Major. Bring it all a year forward and say it is Hovland who has the wins that Rory had and Koepka wins one major. Who is POTY? Not Koepka. It wouldn't even be a discussion. It's about the year's achievement, not what a player with $180 million in the bank would prefer.
  8. In the same way that Rory was the most promising Irish golfer or Tiger the most promising U.S. golfer. It would not surprise me if Hovland won a major in the next two years. In any case, he is probably the most promising new PGATour member, full stop.
  9. That's complete BS. If Greg Norman had a season with 15 world wide wins and another with one win, The Masters, he'd take the single win year. But the 15 win year is the better year. McIlroy had a better year than Koepka. A single major does not trump everything else unless you are a player trying to fill holes in your CV.
  10. You mean when you could skip events in the final series and still win it?
  11. I would say that Rory has been there since he was 16 years of age. He just needs to assemble all parts of his game in the same week. When he does no-one can touch hm because next to Tiger, he is probably the most naturally gifted player there has ever been. In terms of raw talent, there is Tiger and Rory at their best and then daylight.
  12. Good grief. Do you advise doing it precisely 36 milliseconds before impact or somewhere between 15 and 75 milliseconds? I mean.... you can almost live with Johnny Miller's "trap draws" and Faldo's "compressing the ball into the ground", but seriously... where do people get their information?
  13. What a load of BS. It's like someone saying AFTER they've made a fortune or won something that anyone can do it and that you just have to "believe". It's like the horse manure theory of Malcolm Gladwell that that fool, dan, of The Dan Plan swallowed hook line and sinker. Methinks that some of these "sports psychologists" have never played any sport at any level.
