  1. I could understand if he was seeing if there was any loose impediments. It wasn't even close to where the ball was at. I am not sure that a caddie can do this. So, yea... No way the caddie had any good explanation for his actions.
  2. Game not there yet. https://bnc.lt/yzOb/4xDkJxKFV8
  3. Maybe in your mind, but maybe not in Justin's mind. His mind is not yours. I learned how to curse from adults. So, I would say i was behaving like an adult. They didn't have to, but I am sure they were trained to do so. Just because they did doesn't mean Justin was out of line. So you want robots with no personality on the course? Honestly, I never got the opinion you are presenting here. Also, there are plenty of professions that are way more meaningful than street gang punk and cursing is all over the place. Please don't generalize. For some athletes it is life and death. Read Andre Agassi's book. He had nothing but Tennis. Not saying it is prevalent, but i am sure that there are people who would struggle greatly to make a living if they were not playing a sport. It happens all the time in the NFL. How often does Justin actually curse? Is it after every bad shot? If it's two to three times a round, so what? I bet you want everyone to sound like Matt Kuchar, "Oh dangit Matty!" It's fine for him, but it would super annoying if every golfer sounded like Kuchar. Again, it's not Justin's fault the announcers feel like like they need to apologize. The announcers have their standards (not necessarily correct) versus Justin. Maybe they need lighten up?
  4. It is very sad that you are actually an Engineer. The analogy of what is going on here is a crash testing car. They are at zero velocity at the start line. They punch the accelerator and the car quickly gets up to maximum speed before slamming into a wall. It is true you can use your equation to calculate a speed relative to the total distance they are traveling. That means nothing when you ask the question, what is the maximum speed? Or, what is the speed when the car hits the wall? At point zero the speed is zero. At a point half a second later the speed could be 15 mph. At a point 1 second later it could be 30 mph. At a point 6 seconds later it could be 70 mph. Then the car hits the wall. A golf ball only cares what the clubhead speed is at impact. It doesn't care what the average speed was over the duration of the arc. When a police officer pulls you over for speeding, do you crunch the numbers for him taking into account all the stop signs you need to stop at or changes in speed due to speed limit changes? Not, the cop uses a radar gun an gets your speed at a very small moment in time. This^ I can still remember the physics teacher at Ohio State going through how the equations were derived. It made sense to me because it matched up with my calculus class when finding derivatives.
  5. The questions are, 1. Am I doing the right elbow enough with the driver? 2. Not sure the feel I need to shorten the swing. The first few things that come to mind are. a) Speed up the backswing and focus on hand position. This is what is shown in the 2nd video above. b) Speed up the torso turn rate compared to the arms. Which I think I achieve better in the 2nd video above, If I stop both videos at A2.5, the 2nd video looks like my hips and shoulders are turned a bit more. c) Start downswing sooner with the arms. d) any other suggestions? Overall, I like the 2nd swing a lot. I didn't catch well on the club face. For the most part, with the oversewing the flights were a mix of good draws, straight cuts, or pull hooks.
  6. I voted no. I curse a good amount, and find no offense for it. I think people get too bent out of shape by cursing. As long as it's not directed at you, it's not a problem.
  7. Some work on the driver Current Driver - Right elbow feel, and right side through. Swing is way too long. Swing where I feel like I start the downswing when the hands are at shoulder height. Swing feels very fast (in terms of duration). This was the only one I could get to stop short at this position. The rest I get stuck overturning.
  8. Just goes to show how far you are willing to try, you didn't even check if the USGA had the resources you need. It's common sense you would see price gouging on Amazon or Ebay. To me, its more like you went searching for another negative against the USGA and are not even trying to have a discussion or learning experience in good faith.
  9. I understand the rules. They are really easy to understand. That isn't the point. There has to be a hardline somewhere. The hardline for golf is, you don't get to drop nearer to the hole. No one is going to measure your distance down to the inch and complain about it. If you happen to drop a few yards closer, that could matter. What if that position means your stance is on a less extreme lie? It's not about nitpicking. It's about common sense. Don't drop closer to the hole. It's easy to remember, and it makes sense. Your ball, where it originally came to rest is as far as the ball progressed towards the hole. Why should you get to drop it closer? Then don't play. They produced simple and fair rules to an extremely fun game.
  10. Free Country = You have the right to spout crazy nonsense and people have the right to shun you or criticize your comments. your binary does not work Just because you think it's a stupid game doesn't mean it's life and death for everyone else. There is a huge range between were a lot of people exist. It's not a good excuse for your ramblings. Also, you can not have a game with out rules. So, if you want to go out there an hit a ball around and not follow the rules of golf, guess what you are not playing golf. Also, golf has the most fair rules of any professional sport and many other non professional sports. Just because you hate them, doesn't really mean anything. Also, if it is just a game, why do you even post about it? My only guess is you are trolling. If not, then you care more for the game of golf than you would like to admit.
  11. I wonder if it is to help keep him healthy. He's got a lot more support now for the higher swing speed.
  12. Agree for putts outside 10' Meh, even chipping can benefit from the bounce of a wedge. Use a pitching wedge at the longest iron for chipping. Never use 4 or 6 irons for pitching. Not a tip, but an outcome. PGA Tour player swing hard. The effortless swing thing, to me sounds like a trick to try to mitigate amateurs having swing faults that may go really wrong if a golf swings hard.
  13. I haven't worked with the driver yet.
  14. Yea, much better. Divots are much shallower. The ball flights are pretty good. I think for the most part I hit slight push draws or slight pushes.
  15. Mobility is a big thing. I try to get out of my work chair every few hours at a minimum and use my standing desk for a few hours of the day. I go for walks daily. I stretch every night before bed. I find that my lower back mobility is the best its every been. If my back does flare up, its usually not too long and I don't need much in the way of drugs.
  16. The issue with high ball flights with amateurs is it comes with poor golf mechanics. This leads to inconsistent ball flights. Also, it will make it very hard to hit full swing wedge shots with consistent distance. 100' is not that high. It's slightly higher than average, but not crazy high.
  17. Time to break out the Mevo and ruin my golf swing 😉
  18. Two swing feels 1. More right elbow feel 2. Right side gets to left foot while lower legs feel like they don't do much. So it feels like the torso turns only. It also feels like the head stays steady vertically.
  19. Brooks took shots at DJ after round three. Rory McIlroy 'taken aback' by Brooks Koepka's dig at Dustin Johnson Rory McIlroy took issue with Brooks Koepka noting that Dustin Johnson had "only" won one major win when assessing his own chances at winning a... Rory took a shot back,
  20. I like Bryson because i prefer eccentric people playing on the PGA Tour. It makes things interesting. I would prefer if you didn't make a sweeping generalization like that.
  21. DTL 7 iron - Swing thoughts is more of the right elbow feel. DTL 7 iron - More right elbow feel while keeping my focus more on the ball. Sometimes I can loose focus of the ball when I am practicing. Also, my intent is to start the ball left of my target line.
  22. Let’s assume the top 5-ish shoot a few over par. Then I could think something like a 62-63. So probably 9-12 back I can see happening.
  23. To give props to Ohio State. They have a Athletics Degree Completion Program. Shaun Wade, Baron Browning and Kyle Young Among 27 Ohio State Student-Athletes to Receive Diplomas on Sunday Shaun Wade, Baron Browning, Michael Bennett, Kyle Young and Trevor Thompson are among the... Football players can return and complete their degrees.
