  1. Quote: To hit a fade you have to cut across the ball and to hit a draw you have to hit through the ball. Now tell me, which of these is a really athlete going to be hitting? I have never met a true athlete that hits a fade/cut. There is such so much wrong with this statement... Does Martin Kaymer not look like a athlet to you? Tiger Woods? Ben Hogan? They all have/had very athletic abilities. Cutting across the ball to play a "fade"/slice is the hackers way to do it - show me where Kaymer is cutting across it - you will find no evidence of it. Quote: . I mean your never going to run a fade up but a draw naturally comes out with top spin Top Spin??? Then your ball would probably land in the next ditch 100y out, if at all.
  2. LOL - why do you think Woods had such a HUGE fanbase over every other player on tour - certainly not because he is such a nice approachable person that makes his fans feel special, signing autographs all day long and respecting the game that made him rich. Heck no - he had so many fans, because he was winning all the time every year. He was a sure bet not only for the punters but also for people who needed an easy way to root for somebody in golf.
  3. Well thats though to answer - but since his current game got him to Nr. 1 - why would you change ANYTHING in your game - just as so many people did and now struggeling with it. Just keep it as it is, and go your way and things will develop from there.
  4. Hmmm - 0 majors - 0 PGA tournaments and 0 European tournaments in the last two years - i´d say thats a more accurate description of his performance than drooling over his past.
  5. It doesnt work that way - Tiger still has a lot of points left from former wins in the last years - if he doesnt manage to win within the next two months, he will loose these points, and he will drop out of the Top20! And that is actually a fact. You might hold on for a position for quite a while in the WGR - but once you start to struggle and cant keep up with your former success, you drop will be quick and steep - just look at how fast and deep Duval dropped. So yes, its hard to understand why he doesnt play more - i guess he would if he sees himself capable of winning.
  6. I like it - no idea about Price but Trevino, O´Grady and Miller were pretty good ball strikers from what i´ve read about them. Obv. you would have to add a couple more to the list, but i guess he wasnt around back then. And i think he forgot good ol´ Moe! If you want to learn what good ball striking is, you are better off studying the past than the present.
  7. So Harrington made a double eagle and no video footage of it? They probably were busy recording a three putt from Tiger.... But its understandably since he IS the best american in the field - 11 shots back from where the action is.
  8. I bought the MP52s a while ago (from UK) and wondered why there was serial number on them to proof that they are legit. I called up Mizuno and they told me they wouldnt print serial numbers (on this specific) set - dont know about other items like drivers or so on. But i also dont have any number on the ferrule... Why do you think they are not legit? The price of the 52´s came down quite a bit in the last few months, so you dont need to wonder if you get them on the cheap side - esp with as the S300 shaft. Tbh. i couldnt really tell from the pics (e.g. from the 8iron) if they are legit or not, but just look at his previous actions. He seems to be a casual "ebay golfer" and not a professional golf equipment seller. Hmm - it seems that Mizuno doesnt have a proper policy on that. Did you buy your clubs in the US?
  9. I have to agree with Ben on this one - Authentic Swing it is. I can literally name guys in my club by there swing, i could do this 3 years ago - i can do this 5 years from now, doesnt matter how many balls they beat or how many lessons they take. That doesnt mean they dont improve their ball striking, but their original look of the swing will stay the same. Looking at my swing 1 year ago and now, i´m shocked how similar it looks, yet i hit the ball much better. Looking at impact, i indeed see an improvement, but thats something you wont be able to catch with the naked eye, only as a result in ball flight. What you will frequently see are backswings and finishes, and as i read a comment of Johnny Miller yesterday - doesnt matter what you do you on your backswing, you have the strangest backswings make it work, what matters is after the backswing and thats what most people cant see. Tiger went through some coaches over time, yet to the naked eye (and without slowmotion cameras) his swing appears rather similiar in certain positions - its just what he learned as a kid and grew up with, and changing it to a big degree is not possible.
  10. I agree - he had so many good chances to take over and he blew them all - big time! He is the least deserving of the bunch!
  11. Fine sandpaper and roughen them up a bit - that might not work with all kinds of grips though!
  12. General distances might be nice, but as soon as you throw in some variables like wind, non-even lies, fairway/rough, uphill/downhill shots, temperature, moistness or density of air (e.g. when playing above sea level), shot typ, what kind of ball you are playing, you will end up with a wide spectrum for your distances with one club. If you play an even golf course day in day out with the same weather all time, you have a "usual distance", otherwise you might up end up with a bandwidth from 150 - 200y in my case and you have to decide how to make it right - but thats the fun of the game, isnt it? But as somebody else said, if you dont hit it consistent and with proper compression a lot of things wont be a concern.
  13. Winning a major or not when becoming #1 - Norman during his career was #1 for 331 weeks (i dont know actually if this is consecutive or overall) but still it shows that these rankings have some kind of validity, or? The same thing goes with always placing #2 in tournaments and becoming World #1 (as a theoretical example). If you are able to be so consistent, why shouldnt you be #1, compared to all the guys who maybe win once or twice a season but then fall into oblivion for the rest of the season or even for the decade... Everybody gets his shot at winning on the PGA Tour from time to time or running into a hot streak (Kenny Perry *cough*) - but that shouldnt qualify them for #1. And if Westwood won´t keep up his consistency and winning from time to time he soon was a #1.
  14. Family site / Women friendly site? http://thesandtrap.com/reviews I only see men product reviewed there - and thats for a reason, the number of women reading golf forums is close to zero. In general women arent intrested in reading much about golf - just check out how many women golf magazines there are. And the step from a golf magazine to an internet forum is a big one for a woman. I´m sure Eric could shine some light on active participation men vs. women and that should clear things up.
  15. So its okay to talk about their affairs and post pictures of them, but its way off your moral compass when you would tell a story when you had a romance with a beer cart girl (be it fictional or not)? Sorry but i think they call this double moral. And so is closing the previous thread. You either close them all down or not, and there are enough threads on this board that are questionable by strict moral standards but yet remain open - hmm. Same thing - bragging about it at the 19th hole to your friends okay, but on an internet forum not? Because the internet is a holy place and we all just come here to talk golf swing and equipment, and not about the guy who took a dump in the cup.......... If women would be a target group many well frequented forums/blogs could shut down.
