  1. Master the one you have. 100% IMO. Like you said every swing is different so there is no perfect swing. Some fade, some draw do whatever YOU need to do to get the ball in the hole. If that means taking putter off the tee do it.🙂 No one has the perfect swing. Tiger has high hands (not perfect) and I would say it worked okay. If you are a good ball striker just refine your swing some to make it better.
  2. I think it would be great to get rid of greens books as IMHO it removes the skill of green reading. However I think Distance measuring devices should be allowable because that information is already available. This info is in yardage books already therefore it wouldn't remove a skill.
  3. Off the tee I play it a little farther back in my stance than a three wood. If I play it farther forward I tend to hit it a little fat. If I play it to far back I can't get the club face to square. Off the deck I play it just a little farther forward than a 4 iron.
  4. I try to die into the cup any putt over 15 feet so I make sure I don't have 4-5 feet coming back. I usually still hit it 1-2 feet by the hole but I need to be in that mindset so it doesn't get away from me. Anything inside 15 feet I make sure it gets there. Nothing annoys me more than having had the line on a 10 footer but having left it 6 inches short.
  5. What?!? Someone bought it? It looks like it has been in the bag a while too. Does it really help their putting or does it help the gardening? Having to put with that thing or having watch someone putt with it would annoy me to no end.
  6. Minnesota is gonna either be baked or flooded at that time of the year. It's probably gonna thunderstorm every single day. Anyway, I like eliminating a playoff event. It puts more emphisis on the regular season. This way you can't have a terrible regular season sneak into the playoffs at 120 then win twice and say you had the best season. I personally like the more emphisis on the regular season. However, I do NOT think it should be replaced with an off field event. None of the big names will come and it just won't have the same atmosphere or hype the playoff events do. It will seem boring.
  7. When I try to slice one I get steep and hit the ground 4 inches behind the ball. I can always hook 50 yards though.
  8. In your head while lying in bed trying to fall asleep. Sadly, I use this instead of counting sheep.
  9. I would guess that on the course you have different thoughts before a shank and a good shot. My advice is to isolate what happens on the good shots and try to focus on that every time. This should slowly help you improve your consistency.
  10. Including a disclaimer of this is my advice however a pro might be able to help you better than I can is totally fine. You still give your advice but you note it should be taken with a grain of salt. Good advice or bad advice is for the OP to decide but if every answer is go see your pro no attempt at helpful advice is made. Part of the reason we ask questions is so we can improve together. We also may not trust our pro or haven't found one we can trust.
  11. I'll actually take DeChambeau. I bet he come out with fire to show the USGA that they can make any crazy ruling they want he can still win.
  12. If it hurts don't do it. It isn't worth an injury. I will give you the golf take now too. You need to be able to work the ball both ways IMHO. If you can't hit a fade you are giving up at least three shots in you examples. The fact that you can only draw or hook is a deal breaker to me. If you have a swing where you can do both use that swing. If I read this correctly and you only have 2 holes after a 15 month break after an injury, I would spray it all over the course too. It seems like you had unrealistic expectations that first day. You should give the old swing more than 2 holes to "relearn" it especially considering you just came off an injury. If the swing you are making isn't the 4MM swing while trying to make the 4MM swing; it clearly isn't working. My advice is go back to the Steve Stricker turn back turn through swing. It sounds like it has served you well in the past.

    Great play by Na. Lots of fun to watch. This just proves again that putting wins tournaments.
  14. I agree they have to enforce the rules but what rule is this enforcing? I think the rangefinder is a more technology based product which takes the skill out of it. You still have to know how to use the compass and what to do with it. The rangefinder you just click a button and it takes skill out of the game. If the compass is illegal just mark inch lines on the pencil you use.
  15. What? If the Reflex irons had a higher score the should be easier to hit than the Eye 2's. That means your scores should be lower with the Wilsons and in turn higher with the Eye 2's.
  16. I take 2 light practice swings beside the ball. Then I step behind the ball a visualize the shot. I the step up to the ball get my grip and setup right. Then I shuffle my feet to get comfortable over the ball. After which I hit the shot. I think the more time I take over the ball, the more I overthink it. If I overthink any shot the result will be very very bad.
  17. I certainly have Bubba'a swing(for me not a good thing). But for short game I try have a putting style similar to Spieth and a chipping style like Phil.

    This makes 4 for Bubba. I like a good Sunday charge with a playoff too.
  19. I feel like the hard work you put into it makes the improvements even more rewarding. Where is the fun if you can automatically do it perfectly? The fun is putting in hard work and watching pay off.
  20. If you want to improve I would put it toward Arccos 360, but that is just me and I am a numbers addict and have had my eye on it for a while. Otherwise, I would look at balls and gloves.

    Yes, the intent was to hit the ball therefore it is a one stroke penalty. If the intent was to stop the swing then there would be no penalty however the was no effort to stop the swing.
  22. Don't even bother. Trying to reason with a stubborn, person who will never accept any opinion other than their own is a waste of your time and feels like banging your head into the wall. It hurts and you make no progress.
  23. It depends on your swing but probably yes. I am sure you are going to be shocked at this advice but go GET FIT by a reputable fitter and find the best head/shaft combo for you.
  24. I sometimes have days that I can't hit the driver but have a great day with the irons. I think it was an off day. I agree testing on course with a launch monitor is best but I would still give it a few more rounds.
