  1. Share any good swing videos of pro golfers that you come across. Can be from any tour. Lots of pro's swings on our YouTube channel. The Sand Trap YouTube
  2. Brandel Chamblee, in talking about Patrick Reed, told the story of playing with one of apparently several known "cheats" on the PGA Tour in the Waialae event, and how he witnessed rules infractions but didn't do anything except note it to an official after the round. Greg Norman (and a few others) had issues with Mark McCumber in the 80s and 90s. #BackStopping Phil Mickelson has made note of how many cheaters are out there on the PGA Tour, whether it's in regard to marking their ball incorrectly, taking "favorable" drops, stretching the truth a bit on where they're going to play
  3. PGA TOUR and AGA align to educate fans on responsible gaming The PGA TOUR joined the American Gaming Association (AGA) as the newest Have A Game Plan.® Bet... The PGA Tour is joining NASCAR and the NHL in working with the AGA in teaching people to bet responsibly.
  4. PGA Tour to create list focusing on slowest players for pace-of play-improvement, according to sources - Golf Digest The system goes into effect after the Masters in 2020.
  5. Golfers on the PGA Tour (and elsewhere) hit the ball farther than ever. I agree. I'd be a fool not to, of course. Geoff Shackelford, and others, all want to blame the golf ball. They overlook, frequently, several factors, including: Launch monitors allow us to optimize launch. Players are more fit now. Drivers are bigger and more forgiving. Drivers are longer. Drivers are lighter. Players understand the value of distance over "hitting fairways." The last several items lead to this: players are swinging their drivers significantly faster than they
  6. I’m watching this tournament while it’s snowing outside. In October. F-ing Snowing!😡 This is the only course I’ve played that the PGA Tour plays on. Beautiful course. When my wife and I played, there was no wind at all. The front nine had gnats, which made it a bit tough. My favorite hole is the cliff hole Par 3 16th. I parred that hole with a 4 iron! If you ever consider going to play there, The Pompano Beach club is a nice resort next door. They have a shuttle to the course.
  7. Saw this on IG. As we know Augusta spends a lot of money on the course every year, I've even heard that they re-build the greens every year. I actually like the 13th the way it is, players have to work it the corner and there's the possibility of an eagle with a great approach shot. That kind of what the Masters is all about, being able to hit great shots and move up the leaderboard. Yes it was very "accommodating" of Augusta CC

  9. Hi Guys, I'm fairly new to this website. I wanted to join to begin a forum on Indoor Putting Greens. I know most of us reside in the cold states where we can only sit and dream about golf. I grew tired of this routine of playing golf and finding my game by the time it was too late and the leaves began to fall and soon enough the snow-birds were snow-birding again.... lol. Anyways, I'm an avid golfer, a golf junkie, a golf pyscho, a serial golfer... whatever it is I'm just obsessed with the game. I love it, like all of us do on this site. I've got 3 kids, so this project was a MUST DO. I m
  10. PGA Tour’s New TV Deal Indicates Value of Sports Rights Continues to Grow - The New York Times Golf’s current deal runs through 2021, but the tour wanted to secure an agreement sooner than that in the rapidly evolving TV and streaming landscape. PGA Tour Strikes Massive Golf-Rights Deal With CBS, NBC and ESPN PGA Tour strikes new nine-year deal with CBS Sports, NBC Sports and ESPN that significantly raises the costs of televising golf to U.S. fans Golf’s PGA Tour Gets Big Boost in TV, Streaming Rights The PGA Tour
  11. The poll is up above. Really consider your choice. And, if you re-consider later on, change your vote.
  12. Golf: Proposed Premier Golf League to feature 48 players and 18 tournaments - Reuters The British-based World Golf Group (WGG) has finally publicly unveiled its plan for a new global tour that would comprise 18 yearly tournaments featuring 48 of the game's top players. Also, the league would have "teams" where players could be kicked off teams. I'd love to hear some of those meetings… "Uhhh, Jordan, come in, have a seat. So, we've decided to go another direction…". Especially if that player has renounced his PGA Tour status or something. I don't see this gaining m
  13. Let's have a little fun. For anything that happened in 2019, let's give out any awards. They can be serious, mocking/sarcastic, silly… whatever. I'll start with a few… Tour Caddie's Favorite Player - Bryson DeChambeau! Most Surprising Major Winner - Tiger Woods, 2019 Masters Tool of the Year - Bryson again! Most Disappointing Player - Tiger Woods… until the Zozo. Seriously, he wins the first major and then vanishes until November? Irishman of the Year - Shane Lowry can beat up Rory McIlroy, so, sorry Rors.
  14. A few points: I'll be the first to say that I don't think marijuana should be illegal across the nation, but that individual businesses, etc. still have the right to determine whether they want their employees using marijuana. The best laws or rules are the ones with a clear line. In certain cases the line may feel like it's too far to one side or the other, but if everyone knows where the line is and there's no grey areas, those laws/rules are best. The last thing I'd want is the commissioner or someone trying to determine on a case-by-case basis whether this was suspension-worth
  15. https://www.star-telegram.com/sports/golf/article236856853.html We've become a bit numb to numbers like this on the PGA Tour, but to put it into perspective, this small PGA Tour stop the week after the PGA Championship generated $14M in one week. The NFL, in ONE YEAR, generates… drumroll please… $4M LESS than that weak PGA Tour stop. $10M. Those numbers older, but even if the NFL has DOUBLED their charitable output in less than a decade, still falls well short of what the PGA Tour can and does do. Weekly. Remember, that NFL number is for a year.
  16. My buddy Lou shared earlier today a thing we've talked about the past few weeks re: short-siding yourself on the PGA Tour. The image: In chart form: At first glance this flies a bit in the face of the idea that "being closer is better," but that really only holds if you insist on taking this literally and completely disregarding the shades of grey. We've never said that being buried in a deep bunker 15 yards from the flag is better than having a 60-foot putt (or even a chip from off the green). And clearly, short-siding yourself on the PGA Tour can present s
  17. Has anyone ever golfed at a course shortly before a major PGA tournament? Was it loud and intrusive? I have the opportunity to play Pebble Beach over Memorial Day weekend (2 weeks before the US open), but am concerned grandstand and other event construction will be a distraction and ruin the experience. I'm wishfully thinking it's either quiet or would be completed by that time... but its just wishful thinking. Any thoughts are appreciated.
  18. Ive always wondered this myself because every current golfer I looked up they all shot decently low scores in there High School years.
  19. Yahoo Sports had an entertaining article today about Tour Players at the range. Give it a read, there's some very funny stuff going on each week. At the range I've quoted a few of the funnier comments
  20. I think Amanda Balionis is one of the best things to happen to golf media coverage in a long time. Knows her stuff and is creative. Gives the pro the mic and sits back. Cool stuff. What do u think?
  21. I had no idea that PGA players earn retirement money from making the cut in an event; and winning the Fed Ex cup $1million of the stated prize money goes into their retirement account with the lower places having their entire Fed Ex prize put into retirement accounts. And based on the article it is not just the top guys who can get a hefty account. Seems like a pretty good gig, if you can qualify Here’s how much pro golfers earn in ‘free’ retirement money from the PGA Tour - MarketWatch This year the top golfer will win a FedEx bonus of $15 million
  22. Not a bad field, for being the week after the Masters (but it seems like a really big Masters hangover, as everyone is still recovering from that exciting finish) Feature groups Thur morning/Fri afternoon G-Mac, Sneds, Fleetwood Molinari, Simpson, Spieth Thur afternoon/Fri morning Kuch, BDC, Kodaira Kisner, DJ, Xander
  23. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304636404577299702668540234.html?mod=WSJ_hpp_MIDDLE_Video_Third Quote: At their presentation in Phoenix, summarizing research for a paper to be finished soon, they compared the world ranking of the top 200 players to a ranking of those same players' skill levels calculated using a statistical model they also devised, which simultaneously takes into account players' adjusted tournament scores and the difficulty of the courses. In every two-year period going back to 2003, the bias was stark. "For every given skill ranking, the off
