  1. On a more serious note. preshot from behind the ball. I like to feel a good tempo, chest/shoulders/elbows connected, rotate through shot, visualize the shot/Pick target. Over the ball. Focus on target, stay loose.
  2. I thought it was funny and to see the responses is even funnier. People really need to get on board with CPG. Has created his own brand basically. Look up No Laying Up's podcast with CPG. Gives some great background.

    Favorite Putting Aid - Improved Stroke

    I took an online lesson from Potters Putting. Found him on Instagram. VERY skeptical before I tried it but it was early on so the price wasn't that bad. I came away extremely impressed. He helped me solidify my stroke and it was very simple. I had a loop in my takeaway and in transition. He had me setup with an alignment rod at the toe on my putter and use the alignment rod as a gauge (ala Jordan Speith) for the path of the stroke. I have always felt I was a good putter but what this did was solidify stroke to where I only have to worry about speed. With the right stroke I was putting the ball on the target line every time. I can't say enough good things about Marcus Potter. Guy helps everyone from PGA Tour pros to schmoes like me...

    There is a lot of great golf in Denver. If you plan that trip send me a DM.
  5. I read this yesterday. Good read and gives you something to think about when playing in the cold.

    Welcome! I was just in Vegas this week. Great time. Both work and play. Meetings on Tuesday morning and ended up heading to Las Vegas Golf Club, nothing special but after 1pm it was $15 for 18 walking. Sign me up! I then played Paiute on Wednesday. Sun Course. Great shape and a good track. Wolf course had a tourney or would have played there. Definitely worth trying. Next trip I need a full day to get up to Wolf Creek.

    Wedges: Theory v. Reality

    I don't have much to add here. Know your wedges no matter what loft. Be able to hit carry numbers and know what the ball will do after.

    My personal golf pet peeve - ball marks

    its an epidemic everywhere. where I play they pride themselves on excellent greens and most members are very cognizant of marks on the green. I have seen this season where more and more pitch marks are not being tended to or they are trying to be fixed but still leaving somewhat of a pitch mark. I fixed 4-5 per hole (avg) on Wednesday which is ridiculous. Fix your pitch marks people!!!, whether its a full shot in or a pitch shot (which can still leave a mark!). And might as well fix a couple more since you already have your tool out. Have a great long weekend!
  12. Natural set up with driver for a righty (ball off of left heel) will naturally dip the right shoulder as the right hand has to reach across the body. I feel when my set up with my shoulders is too flat (parallel with ground) I have a harder time controlling the ball. Placing too much spin because of a negative-ish (lower) angle of attack. With a slightly dipped right shoulder, I tend to have better control with hitting the ball higher on the club face and on a positive AoA. All in all its your swing. Find what does right by you.

    TF was built on a landfill, which has environmental constraints as far as what can be done. Either way, Coore & Crenshaws signature is to use as much as the natural landscape as possible. I am not going to say that there were no trees taken out but being a landfill I doubt there were many where the course was routed. I struggle with seeing certain courses on TV because the broadcast doesn't do it justice for all the undulations. I bet this course plays WAY better than it portays on TV. Uneven lies, etc.
