    My Swing (saevel25)

    Range work today Over the top 10 yard push cut. Tried to shorten the swing and feel like I slow down the downswing to let my self turn better. Right shoulder feels like it goes down and forward a lot. Driver is just a mess. I got this straighten the leg idiocy going on. Now clue how to stop this. not sure what I need to work on, Backswing? It looks like I’m decently open at impact. The swing path is killing my ball flight. Lots of weak cuts.

    Need Help Explaining - Different Tees

    I think you have that backwards for the USGA. We use slope rating for calculating the course handicap for a round, http://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/course-handicap-calculator.html I think why it doesn't matter is because you are playing against other golfers. So, typically you subtract the lowest handicap from the rest. Example, Golfer A, has a course handicap of 5 Golfer B, has a course handicap of 8 Golfer A is giving Golfer B 3 strokes. The equation would be for the EGA, EGA HDCPb x SR/113 + (CR - PAR) - (EGA HDCPa x SR/113 + (CR - PAR)) = Strokes given So, the (CR-PAR) cancel out.

    Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    I'd say Top 90. You have 85% of all the wins coming from the top 90 in strokes gained total last year. That still means 15% of the wins were won by someone outside the top 90. With 5 wins going to golfers who were outside the top 150 in strokes gained total.

    Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Golf Digest isn’t posting here like a troll. If they made the point that it’s easier to finish 2nd due to weaker competition then it might be worth reading.

    Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    Insert eye rolling emoji... Lets not get into depth of field again. There is another thread dedicated to that. I will say, you are wrong. If you want to argue against that, take it to the depth of field thread. I doubt it. Koepka, saw Tiger post -14. He kept hitting greens and fairways. He did it against a crowd hyped up by Tiger draining that birdie putt on 18. Nice try, but I don't by your claim. It's not founded on anything factual. Tiger dominated in 2006 and 2007 with a ranking of 139 and 152 in driving accuracy. Maybe it's the field being better at driving the ball than it was in 2007. Tiger only averaged 4% better in driving accuracy 2007 than in 2018.

    Predict Tiger's 2019 Season

    I am going 2-3 wins, one of those being a major. He's going to be playing at three courses he's won a major at - Bethpage, Augusta, and Pebble Beach. Major comfort level there for him on those courses.

    My Swing (saevel25)

    Played 9 holes yesterday i tried to hit everything at 70-80%, to keep contact good. It took some time to get use to the timing on the course. The front nine was a struggle. It didn’t help that my putting struggled. I had a few unnecessary bogies. Driver is still an issue. Tough to swing slower and not have the turn rates stall out compared to the irons.

    Mission Impossible: Fallout - Birdie A fun action packed movie with great character chemistry.
  11. Day 2 played 18 today. Tried to swing slower to do my pieces better. Timing was an issue. Kinda an up and down round.

    press before chipping?

    For chipping, it's fine. You are not using much bounce with chipping anyways.

    Picking Up Wrong Ball

    So, two players, playing an 18 hole stroke play match isn't a match? I think that isn't correct. My point is made with the knowledge I know. I kept asking questions about it. appreciate your concern for the matter. Thank you for correcting my terminology. The question is, does the same person get disqualified in a Match play event? Lets say the reason for the disqualification is because it's an egregious breach of the rules. Then, why is it only a 1 stroke penalty in match play? Why not disqualification? Why not a loss of a hole penalty?
  14. Day 2 Worked on putting today, mostly inside 15 FT. Struggled a bit with left to right breaking putts.

    Picking Up Wrong Ball

    I am tired of people stealing golf balls just because they happen to see one in between holes.
