  1. Try to prove he doesn't have enough reasonable doubt to do what he did.
  2. you have to ask yourself what the intent of a handicap should be. The USGA handicap allows golfers of different skill levels to compete. In that regard, it should be a measure of their ability over a certain time frame. That would be impossible. You could certainly have an additional stat, like best 5 out of the last 20 rounds could be a glance at potential. Then, it would be useless as a handicap for matches.
  3. He is well in his right to lift the ball to check..
  4. I might be able to claim both at the same time 😉 I am pretty sure it was an eagle.
  5. Most of my back pain went away when I did the following. 1. Stretch 2. Ice 3. Be more mobile on a daily basis 4. Get some muscle release from my chiropractor. My back can still flair up, but I manage it much better than I use to. If it gets bad where it is painful, I do not golf till I have a few days of being pain free. Muscle tightness for me isn't the same thing as pain.
  6. Here is the venue with the most US Opens since 1970. Yea, probably Pebble, Oakmont, Pinehurst, then one other. I like the idea of a random 5th course on the list. Like going back to Chambers Bay.
  7. Definitely not cleaver to use an obvious rule.
  8. This is for me, but I like the idea of feeling like I am pressing down on something under my left foot. My hips shift pretty good, but I have slight mechanic issues with how I do a weight shift. Since weight shift increases pressure under the lead foot it might beneficial to start there.
  9. It's a stat, just as advanced stats for baseball are stats. Fairways hit doesn't matter much with out knowing distance. Lets say you hit 100% of your FIR, but you hit 7 iron off ever tee the advantage of hitting the fairway is given away. How many putts doesn't matter. If you hit 1 GIR, your # of putts is going to be much lower, but the scoring isn't going to be good if you don't have birdie putts. What if someone has the same number of putts, but hit 15 GIR as the golfer who hits 1 GIR. Strokes gained encompasses this by showing you that he either had an absurdly hot putting day or an absurdly good approach game.
  10. Dang, I underestimated the total number of golfers. My percentage was on point 😉
  11. Please switch to using Gen Z 😉
  12. Yay, back was good enough to play 9 tonight. Started off slow, but that is to be expected with not hitting golf balls in 11 days. I just kept with focusing on torso turn with soft left arm. Then trying to get that left knee to go down and left. For about a 4 hole stretch I got stuck with a nasty snap hook. Then I figured out working in a bit of more right side forward with the left knee stuff. I started to hit the ball much better.
  13. Clark Howard on leading,
  14. I always saw leasing for people who want to avoid troublesome maintenance. If you trade back in before 30K you can avoid the higher routing maintenance cost. Also, I think leasing was more viable option years ago when cars were more troublesome. Now, cars last a really long time with routing maintenance. You can skip new tires, new brakes, and higher required maintenance. Then you have the people who like brand new cars or trying different cars. For me, I research out cars with good history of not having issues and time it with good dealership deals.
  15. No hip turn from A1 (address) to A3 (arm parallel to ground in backswing). Be more passive with the arms and more active with a hip/torso turn.
  16. I like the prong attachment, and the bullet attachment. Certain spots on the back can be tricky to get. I do have a massage peanut roller that I lay on for the middle of the back. I also have a massage stick that I can roll up and down my lower back.
  17. Are you playing the same course? Is the practice green an actual representation of what you face on the course? It could be your putting stroke. Start practicing like you play. Take your time, try to bring in the feel like the putt counts for something. Also, try to work on lag putting. Try to get every putt inside 10% of the distance you are hitting putts from. So a 50-FT putt, try to get the ball inside 5-ft.
  18. Don't hit down on the ball. Hitting up will increase launch and reduce spin rate. What causes this ballooning is not launch angle, but spin rate. I have a clubhead speed of 115-120 mph. I hit a 10 degree driver, and probably launch it around 12-13 degrees with sub 2200 spin rate. I try to hit up 2-3 degrees. For me, it's not really beneficial to be overly precise with the numbers. The angle of attack can vary +/- a degree. The dynamic loft can change. My spin range is probably 1900 to 2500.
  19. It isn't like DJ doesn't have a major win. I think that is a big thing for a lot of people.
  20. I have a hypervolt gun. It works really well. For me, my quads and calf muscles are super tight. So I try to hit those a few times a week I agree, it's amazing how accustomed the body gets to certain unrelaxed positions. I remember when they finally got my upper back to relax and my shoulders started to hurt because they were stretching out. Right now it's my lats that bother me the most, and I foam roll them occasionally.
  21. Someone who swings very slowly. They need the dynamic loft to make up for the lack of spin rate that keeps the ball in the air.
  22. Very unlikely that a person would present the static loft of the driver at impact. Making any determination of what loft to choose is impossible. That is why club fitting is important in this regard.
