  1. The biggest issue I see, is your lateral shifting with the hips. Notice how much your hips move away from that green line (your hip position at address).
  2. I don't think it will make it go that much quicker. Lets say the golfer has a 40 FT putt. The golfer will need to walk 80 FT to pull the pin. The average person walks at 4.5 FT per second (3 mph). That saves 17 seconds. Most golfers are not going to see 40 FT putts all day long. They will probably see much less do to short game shots leaving mostly inside 20 FT putts. If it is a group of 3-4 people, then the time saved is marginal because the closest guy to the pin can pull it before anyone is actually ready to putt. Also, If golfers become more aggressive on putts, because hitting the pin helps them so much, they might actually miss many more putts. I've seen a golfer 6 putt before because they missed the hole 4 times from 15 FT. They kept blasting it back and forth. The ball never got near the hole. Even if it saves let say 15 seconds a hole (very conservative) just on walking time. That means you are saving 4.5 minutes. Lets say the golfer makes 3 extra putts a round due to the benefit of leaving the pin in. That means they probably save another 1.5 minutes per golfer. Maybe in a foursome they save 6-10 minutes. At best they save 15 minutes on the round on a good day. I bet most people will not even notice it.
  3. I am sure for "someone" the feel of holding onto lag will help with lets say key 3. I will say that this golfer will probably need to be good at key #1 and key #2 to do so.
  4. Please be mindful of your camera angles. Try to shoot so the camera is aimed down your toe-line, not down the target line of the golf ball.
  5. Lucky for Spieth there isn't a short par 3 with water in front of it ;)
  6. Only 11 people are under par and the leader is at -6. I doubt that it will happen.
  7. http://www.golfwrx.com/460658/the-benefits-of-maintaining-flex-in-your-rear-knee-during-the-backswing/ Players tend to over-rotate or over-swing because they do not rotate correctly. Players tend to lose their ability to shift their weight because limiting the reduction in flex in the trail knee will cause golfers to shift laterally because the right hip does not go back and around enough. If I remember correctly, PGA Tour players do not actually push off on their right foot. This seems like another one of those articles that just looks at one person as an example. The author tries to hedge his comments by stating that this sort of advice depends on the golfer. He doesn't really make a good argument for maintaining the knee flex presented at address through out the backswing.
  8. Heel bladed a 9 iron to about 1 FT. The ball went about 1/4th the normal height, but probably had a ton more spin on it. The ball came in low and just check right next to the hole.
  9. Like what ever is your priority piece is. A backswing piece can be worked on with out hitting a ball at all.
  10. No, the bounce of the club will glide slightly on a mat or hard pan ground instead of letting the club dig into the ground.
  11. Mats or hard ground can let you get away with hitting slightly behind the ball slightly. What would be a slightly heavy shot will turn out OK.
  12. That sucks. They are one of my favorite bands. He had so much emotion and passion for music.
  13. The amount of lag depends on the golfer. It also depends on if the golfer has a good athletic motion as well. If the golfer fails to get the proper amount of weight forward at impact, fails to maintain a steady head, they will struggle with a flip or casting the club. As for actively thinking about lag, I would say it is not needed for most people. Maybe more important is the angle formed with the trail hand to forearm at impact. I would not classify that as maintaining lag (the angle of the club relative to the arm in the downswing). There is a wide range of lag on the PGA Tour and they produce this the angle described in the thread below consistently.
  14. I intuitively know how many over or under I am. I don't really keep track exactly.
  15. What course, what set of tees?
