    Losing the (U.S. Open) Course vs. Courses We Play

    The courses want to set up the course to look as nice as possible since its advertisement for private courses and public courses. Also, it looks nicer on TV. No one wants to see Rae's creek look brown like it did back when Jack played. They dye water blue to make it look pristine. Honestly, actually going to the Masters. It's like looking at a perfect painting. There is something awesome about that. I don't mind the USGA wanting to push a course to it's limit. I do think they could back it down a bit so they are not going to have the greens burn out. There is no win here for the USGA. Why should they care about the opinions of the fans then?

    My Swing (saevel25)

    Face-On Setup looks good Backswing looks good. Need to stop my hands at A3.5, and not let them carry to A4ish. A7 looks really good. Some nit-picks could be head tilts back slightly. Down the Line Setup looks good Backswing needs to stop at A3.5ish, and not let the club fall across the line. Not let the club head move all over the place in transition. A7 looks good. Hips are more open, and torso is more open. Nit-pick, standing up a bit too much here? Backswing feels for hips - Right hip goes back and to the right. More 50/50 weight pressure feel at A4. Just working with a chair next to me is making this really consistent. Downswing feel - Swing out at the ball with the right hand and shoulder. Right shoulder goes down at the ball more. Continue to turn that right shoulder down and forward. It almost feels like a bit of a lunge at the ball feel. Not sure if this is the direction I want to take this feel. Backswing feel - Slower backswing, maybe a pause at the top. Needs a bit of work to find what works.

    How to get a Lean Body?

    I do agree that we are hardwired to put on weight easier than we are to lose it. Yet, it's not as hard as you make it out to be. The issue isn't genetics in that we put on weight easier. The problem is, humans have not adapted to the modern lifestyle. They don't know how to handle readily available food. They don't know how to handle a culture that is designed to promote a sedimentary lifestyle (TV, cellphones, 8-14 hour work days). It's more of a cultural shift versus fighting genetics. If people want to lose weight, Sleep better, and not just 8 hours, but when you sleep. Sleep has become more important the more it has been studied. Eat better Be more active. If it's just taking a walk for 30-60 minutes a day, that can add up over the long haul. Simple. No need for complex work outs or diets needed. There are benefits to things like intermittent fasting, but in general, these three things are the basics really.

    How to get a Lean Body?

    Find things you enjoy. I am really into playing sports with my friends now. I play volleyball 1-2x a week. I play in a kickball league. I play golf 1-2x a week. I go swimming 2-3x a week. All of these things I enjoy doing. I never really enjoyed running on a treadmill or lifting weights. I enjoy the feeling of working out. I rather find things I enjoy doing.

    My Swing (saevel25)

    Video to come pitching is getting a tad toe on the strike. Full swing is to flippy right now. Then I worked on right side down and towards the ball more, and things got better. I still struggle to find a good way to describe the feel I have for when it works.
  8. It should be valid, we all play by the same rules. Tour players should not be treated differently.
  9. He took the wrong penalty. He should have been disqualified. It was flippant and disrespectful. Golf is about accepting the good and bad bounces. Do you want to see every golfer run up to a putt and whack it before it rolls off the green? What if he was in contention, or trying to make the weekend, and the difference was one stroke. Lets say it takes him four strokes to get up and down. How do you think the golfer he just bumped out should feel? It was disrespectful to every golfer who plays golf the right way. This is in line with signing for the wrong score. He could have ended up with a totally different score, but he was selfish and purposely broke a rule.
  10. If I want to hit a low cut, I play the ball forward. Get my weight forward a lot. Hit down and in on the ball.

    Tree Removal at Classic Courses

    I prefer it. I rather play courses that visually look similar to the original design. I don't think constricting the course with trees is the best way to increase difficulty. One of my favorite courses is Brookside CC in Canton, Ohio. A Donald Ross design, and they took out a lot of trees. It opened up the course, making it visually a beautiful course. Before it was hitting down alleys. The trees at Shinnecock Hills looked like they were never in play. I was just checking Google Earth's historical imagery. Sometimes adding trees diverts the intent of how the course needs to be played. Augusta National is much more of a driver oriented golf course because they added trees, and less of an approach shot course. I am not sure Bobby Jones would like the changes.
  12. Are you trying to hit the ball high? If not, then it's not hard to hit a very low cut. Just take a 6 iron and hit a punchy cut shot. This way you are showing less loft at impact, which makes it easier to curve the ball.

    Stableford scores and sandbagging

    This is based on the course rating, not par. A golfer beats their handicap differential only 20% of the time. http://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/handicapping/handicap-manual.html#!rule-14410
