  1. I hit about 100 balls each time and hit 80 balls with short irons AW to 8. Maybe I should just hit a small bucket with 50 balls and work on chipping instead. I will check out Bullseye brace. Thanks,
  2. I notice in the last 3 months I have some wrist pain after hitting balls on mats at the range. Is this a common problem with range mats or it is my swing? I am right handed.
  3. My goal for 2021 is to have an inside out swing. Learn to shallow the club at top of the swing to promote a flatter angle of attack, using more lower body and an inside out swing.
  4. Slowly I started to understand that the problems with my swing is because of my over the top swing which results in standing up, butts moving forward as @cipher has shown and flipping to compensate. As long as I have an over the top swing I can't never have lag. I have been watching countless videos and finally today I started to understand that to fix my over the top swing I need to shallow the club at transition. Basically, at the top of the backswing, feel the right hand and wrist loose to allow gravity to pull the club head down, bending right wrist more while tucking the right elbow
  5. I think it is interesting both PR and CM are leading the Race to Dubai which is a European PGA Tour. I am unable to find a clear explanation on how many tournaments they have to play or how many stroke advantage assigned for the leaders for the Race to Dubai. Does anyone have more information?
  6. Are these knuckleballs the ones that drops down extremely quick and unexpectedly? Today I took an old ball that I played with and hit 20 yards passed the "240" sign. It felt good.
  7. What do you think happens if Sungjae Im bulks up like Bryson?
  8. Thank you for your replies. Today I had my laser range finder and used it for the first time on the range. With the rangefinder, I was horrified to find out that the 240 yard sign is only 210 yard away. May be the owner mislabeled the sign on purpose. I had been hitting my driver for a while here and usually carry to near the 240 yard sign and believed that I carry 230 yard which reflects what I see on the course.
  9. At the range, my driver carry is 200/205 but on the course I typically carry 230 and 250 total yards. Are range balls about 15% shorter in your experience?
  10. DJ wins. Even I can't blow this lead.
  11. These are not drone shots. They are skycams on cables.
  12. Im has awesome short game. His irons are not sharp today.
  13. Im and Ancer both missed putts under 3 feet. DJ back in control.
  14. Sungjae Im -2 after 4 holes, cut the lead by half. Interesting to see if DJ can withstand the pressure. DJ is in the fairway bunker on 5.
  15. I meant they have to play 27 holes in a row and fatigue could be a problem. For example, Collin Morikawa played 9 holes this morning and just started the second round.
  16. The guys with late tee times on Thursday will have to play 9 holes early on Friday, and if they make the cut will have early 2nd round tee times on Friday that means they will have to play 24 holes.
  17. Scores for the morning groups were much lower when the course was softer.
  18. Xander Schauffele -3 after 3. He was in contention last year and has been playing well in the last few months.
  19. Dechambeau, Masters' favorite, is in trouble.
  20. I just used my Wilson harmonized chipper for the first time on the course and I believe it saved me 1 to 2 strokes. I took out my rarely used 5-iron for the chipper. I used it only 2 times and both times I got up and down. I use the chipper when the balls are on the fringe, a few feet from the green and the grass is just too tall for putting. There are cases where an iron is not an ideal tool to used. I have seen people using a mid iron with a putting stroke near the green. First they have to stand closer and choke down on the mid iron, second the heel of the iron is way up and now they
  21. I was watching JT Poston and he is very lanky and the opposite of Dechambeau. Poston's driving distance average is 306 which is long but I wonder if he can gain another 10 to 15 yards if he works out a little bit.
  22. It will rain on and off for all 4 days which favors the long hitters. I am picking Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa, 2020 leaders with strokes gained/approach stat, to win. I am super excited but I don't have ESPN to watch on Thursday and Friday. I have to stream to watch featured group and Amen corner holes.
  23. These balls are long. About 10 yards longer with the driver and go straighter with less fade which is my typical ball flight which are exactly what I wanted. My problem is that they tend to bounce too much on the greens. When I hit short irons with Kirkland Signature balls or other soft balls they spin back about 1 foot or only roll forward 1 or 2 feet when hit the greens. With the Titleist Velocity balls they roll forward 4 to 20 feet during my last round. I kinda expect this with low spin balls but this is a little more that what I had hope for. I will not buy again.
  24. I have Callaway FT-IZ driver and Tour Edge Exotics XCG 3 wood. I hit them about 235 and 205 yards total. Are 2019/2020 drivers and 3 woods much longer and more forgiving? If you have made a switch recently, did you see a major improvement?
  25. I am trying this drill and keep hitting part of the gate but I am getting better. Balls still going left slightly but definitely better putter contact. I remember seeing Tiger using this drill. It is amazing that we don't make contact at the center of the putter often. IowaGreg, I tried to keep my right elbow closer to my body but didn't see a difference. I am trying a more aggressive follow through [rather than decelerating] and keep the putter head going more straight like you suggested and I think it helped a lot.
