  1. Yeah, I am that way too. I wouldn't care about attention or admiration. I just wouldn't want that. I would want to show up and play golf. I agree I share his mindset. Play well and not care what anyone thinks. All of this does hurt his marketability though. I would take the Marshawn Lynch approach to interviews; "I'm just here so I wound get fined". I have other thoughts about media and news but here isn't the place to share them.
  2. Hmm, if I don't lock both of my arms at address I shank it every time because both of my arms are locked at impact. If my arms don't start out locked the head moves farther away from me leading to a heel shank when I lock them for impact. This may not be textbook but that is what I found for my swing.
  3. I think you can just tap the thought bubble next to the thread title that turns blue when there is unread content and it marks them all as read. I just use the mobile website, not the app so I don't know if it is the same.
  4. I am not a pro and will never claim to be. My only comment is that at the top of your backswing; you have a little redirect to the outside. I would try to not redirect the club so much. Your redirect could lead to some pull hooks. That being said if it works, don't change it. You clearly have natural ability. Just put in practice and you will be very good.
  5. I doubt he'll get it. While he may be a better player, he certainly doesn't have the flash of appeal that Rickie does. We already have a DJ type guy and that is more where BK fits in. He may be a better player in terms of wins but in terms of popularity he is lacking the popularity of Rickie. Rickie will sell more products than BK; therefore Rickie gets paid more. Simple as that.
  6. I always hit my 58* out of a green side bunker no matter what. Bunker play is probably the best part of my game. For me it is mostly feel and instinct. But I think I always open up the face and swing the same amount. I then hit a little bit closer to the ball for it to go farther and a little farther back from the ball for it to go shorter.
  7. Yes, they do clutter it up a bit and when people post 100 welcomes in a row; it's a little annoying.
  8. Yeah, he came off as a decent guy and helped his reputation.
  9. We all know Jumbo is the best😉 Interesting results though. Are they repeatable? I think it is personal preference too. I play Midsize. The "feel" the best to me and are the most comfortable. I have large hands and can't stand standard. I haven't tried jumbo but might soon. Go with what works for you.
  10. Yes, but if the PGA of America agrees. It wouldn't make a difference. The PGA already dictates where the tournament is held.

    Just as long as you don't expect a miracle club a hybrid will do well for you. It will help you launch higher and straighter. I would recommend a hybrid for your swing speed.
  12. That Galaxy C5A story is really cool. Thank you for you service.
  13. Yes and No. It is the PGA of America but it isn't the US Open. I don't see why even though it is the PGA of America they can't contest the tournament somewhere else. It is still a PGA of America contest. Either way there are still plenty of great DIFFERENT style courses in the US. I can't think of the name right now but there was that linksy style course in Texas. Get some really hilly mountain courses. Just do something.
  14. Or when you don't have enough info and are dangerous to yourself.... I know this from a friend😬😁🤔
  15. I'll take a traveling major. As Shankster said we already have our parkland major and no other parkland major will top it. Move it around, maybe go to the sand belt in Australia one year and some mountain course in Europe the next. I don't know. Just do something to make unique.
  16. In a word, (insert four letter word of choice) Worst round in a while. I sprayed the ball everywhere. If you said the hole where you hit it over the road. I would need to ask you to be more specific. Putted okay. I just hit pull hook after pull hook. 43-47-90 34 putts 4/14 fairways 10/18 greens I hit 4 brave urethane covered friends OB today for an addition of a whopping 8 penalty strokes. Proximity was awful too.
  17. Weeeelllllllll my options are limited. I guess the 300 yard drive that I crushed to 58 out. What y'all don't need to know is that I missed the green and made bogey. 😱😬
  18. I hit my 3W maybe once a round. It is on the hot seat too. I hit it once off the tee today and it found the fairway..... err the wrong fairway that is.😟 I can hit it off the tee but I would much rather use my 2 iron. I can hit the 2 straighter and the driver more consistently.
  19. How about first 2 rounds are qualifying and then the top 16 make it to match play? I think that would be much more exiting than true match play. I still don't think this should happen. Like Rev said one is bound to be 4th.
  20. I will only be watching this because it is at St. Andrews. My pick is Sticker if he is playing and Langer if he isn't.
  21. Wow, that is bad. I don't know how you kept playing with him. I would have lost it or at least not played with him anymore. You sir, have more patience than I.
  22. There could not be a truer statement than that.
  23. Isn't that still a two stroke penalty for changing balls?
  24. I always play on the course like I am on the range. I just go out there play the swing I have practiced so many times just to different targets. It seems like he has a mental block. Maybe he should practice more on the course to get out of his head.
  25. Penalties and GIR. I would be most concerned about hitting only 40% from 125-150. I would say work on wedge shots.
