    This article implies he actually needs to accept the exemption before he gets added to the FedEx Cup standings (so maybe it's him, maybe it's the Tour -- or each step might take a few days to get fully active).

    I'm guessing it is a process that doesn't happen all too often so not surprised it is taking a little while to get there. Although something tells me Zalatoris winning would be done before he got off the green...

    I think the key is accepting the exemption.  I am sure there are some ramification and obligations if he accepts membership on the PGA tour.  We are assuming he will accept but he may not.

    Nearly but not quite, it's actually Rugby League and the teams are both from Sydney Australia (Roosters and Cronulla Sharks) so no Hakas

    So what is the difference between rugby and rugby league.   I also knew no Haka since that is reserved for New Zealand.

    290-310, distance with driver is not a problem.  I do draw the ball.  Don't know if that will help or hurt there.

    Harry said he doesn’t play the green (to busy) too much so he doesn’t have notes.  Here are his notes on the gold based on your driver distance:

     

    If it’s firm and fast which it should be he should hit iron off 1, maybe 5 if pins at front, 8,13

    Hit driver on 2,4, maybe 5 to go for green, 6 you have to be really straight, 10,11,14,15,17,18 you can aim at bunk and draw around corner. 

    3 plays a club short, 7 plays a club longer, 12 plays 10-15 yards less, 16 plays 10-15 yards less

     

     

     

    hope this helps

    As someone who has played a variety of different types of irons I'm curious as to what others feel.  I constantly hear about feedback.  I have to say that I have very little trouble knowing where I hit the ball on the face of any iron that I'm playing with.  Whether it was my old Ram Tour Grind blades, my favorite Ping Eye 2's or anything since including my G30's I could tell if I hit it flush, misshit it on the toe, low on the blade, high on the face, dare I say it, in the heal.  What more do you need in regards to feedback?

    Not all clubs are like that at least for me. As I go through the various clubs and club types they all feel different especially if you start to say feel and sound are the same thing.   With some clubs it is difficult to identify where you make impact; especially if you aren’t that far off from center.  Perhaps it is player dependent as well.  I hear people say they feel the club head in the swing or the shaft loading/unloading which is something I personally have never felt.  But there are clubs that I can get a better feel for off center.

    Good grief, I bet I'm one of only a few who know 

    A. What game is in this meme 

    And 

    B. What teams are involved 😁😎

     

     

     

    Rugby, but I don’t know the non national teams to be able to answer with their names.

    I guess the main thing is, are there any holes that from the tee you want to play a certain shot, but once you get to your ball you realize you could have played a different one (say 5 iron off tee, but then get to ball and realize you could hit driver)?  Any holes play longer or shorter than actual distance?  Are there a lot of elevation changes?  We have a foursome playing, but if anyone wants to meet up, Harry included, I can give you the dates and times we are playing.  

    Harry asked me how far you hit your driver

    Have you had your vision checked ?  For an instance, do you know which one is your more dominant eye ?

    I remembered there was an "eye Doctor" who fixed the putting issue of professional golfer.  Can't remember the names now.  The eye exercise she gave to the PGA player fixed the putting issue that had been plaguing the player.

    Sometimes it's not the putter, and it's the vision we perceive, which gave us the wrong signal/direction.  I have no obvious dominant eye, I could see the putting line very clearly so, what's left is to determine the speed of the roll.

    Are you referring to Craig Farnsworth?    Based on what I have learned vision and perception have a lot to do with how we putt.  There are quite a few instructors that teach setting up, based on how you see the line,  it doesn’t “fix” anything but teaches you how to setup to see the line if the putt better.  Mike Malaska has a few videos that explain this and a few other instructors such as Bruce Rearic and Phil Kenyon teach about adjusting younsetup to see the line correctly.

    Yes there are elevation changes.   I don’t play the courses often enough to have that kind of detail but I’ll ask Harry if he has any tips to playing the courses.

    Do some shafts taper more? I put a gravity grip on a friends Scotty and there is a noticeable gap at the bottom end of the grip between the shaft. I’ve put this grip on an odyssey and Taylormade with no issues.  Any ideas? I guess I could build up the bottom with tape?

    You seem to have answered your own question.  Tape buildup is probably your best option

    I think a lie board and a hitting board are the same thing. It’s a plastic board you hit ball off of with tape on the bottom of the club. I’m using electrical tape so the black marks clearly shoe the club path. So if it’s not the path that’s causing the toe hits then it must be the lie. Or is it?

    wanted to make sure we were talking about the same thing  Toe hits can be cause by raising your hands, moving your hands closer to your body,  weight shifting back, etc.    Neither lie angle or path are a direct cause of hitting the ball off the toe;  they are more related to ball flight.

    I have had a very slight outside in swing path forever. The hitting board shows it to be fractional in size. I've always credited the toe-ish(about 50% between the center and the scored face edge) pattern on the club face to swinging on that path. I wonder why you can't hit the ball in the middle of the iron even though you are an outside in swinger. Even though these clubs are supposed to be forgiving I'm sure I'm losing some yardage on my irons.

    A lie board doesn't really reflect path; it tells you what part of the sole hits the ground.  your path might not be why you are hitting it on the toe. you can hit the center with an inside out or an outside in swing.    Forgiving doesn't mean that you will get the exact same distance with an off center strike;  it means you won't lose as much distance.    Or maybe I don't know what you mean by a "hitting board."

    ... It was just too irresistible and of course I was just funnin'.  I am a big believer in using anything that works so good luck!  

    I know you were joking;  but did want to explain that I wasn't just trying it for no reason.

    🤪  I get what you are saying, but it is something that my coach has recommended and not a self diagnosis.  While trying to diagnose my toe strikes,  he discovered that when I transition to the downswing my right elbow separates from my left which causes me to manipulate the club and end up striking the toe.   When I am able to keep the elbows closer together I make center contact.     I have tried a bunch of the balls I have around the house and nothing works really well;  too hard to use.   I saw a video online of someone using something like a triangular sponge but didn't know what it was.

    I just returned from a hitting board exercise with my three sets of irons; Burner2 steel, Burner2 graphite, and Ping E55. All of the board marks on the tape show marks at around half way from the heel to the center of the club. The toe is certainly up when addressing the ball. Over the many years of playing my ball marks(abrasions) have always been outside of center; about the same distance from center as the board marks on the tape. 

    My question is: Will bending the lie to move the board marks to the center of the club move the ball marks any closer to the center of the face, away from the toe?

     

    Trying to understand what you are saying.  You tested the lie angle of your clubs and found that impact was close to the heel.  You would adjust the lie angle to move the marks to the center.     You are also hitting the ball on the toe?   Adjusting the lie angle probably won't fix where you hit the ball on the face as it is probably a swing issue.   But you won't know until you fix the lie angle.
