  1. Well said. The thoughtfulness that in the women’s game is what makes it’so enjoyable. The BMW has been great. Hee Jeong is one of my favorite gofers so I’m pulling for her to close this out. She has already said she would accept and join the tour if she wins.
  2. I didn’t see this when it was originally posted, but I agree with you. I have been a fan of the LPGA over the men’s tour for a couple years now. It’s nice to see more of a variety in the play. Sure there’s a few ladies that can hit long, but most are in the range of us mortals, so it’s a bit more relatable. This week’s tournament has been fun with the KLPGA players in the field as well ( I watch the KLPGA on YouTube so I know a lot of the players). I hope they continue to gain traction and receive more coverage, and better time slots. I would much rather watch the LPGA over Korn Ferry or Champions.
  3. I watched Squid Game since there’s all the rage about it, liked the concept, but overall not impressed. Starting the third season of You now , and it’s off to a good start.
  4. There MAY be a better player that he took the spot of, but the exposure is good for the game. There’s all this talk about the “athletes “ in the game now. Unfortunately most of the best athletes in the country don’t get exposed to golf, so maybe this will help with that, but probably not.
  5. Driver. It’s been the biggest weakness for a while now and it’s time to get to where I can trust it.
  6. This is really all you need to know. A lot of features are behind paywalls on the apps, but if all you want is gps it’s really just personal preference on the interface you like best. I’ve been using freegolftracker for years now. More than likely you’re going to need to mark the gps yourself, but all the stats are not locked so that’s cool.
  7. Stopped being so technical and over thinking, and just going with more feel and intuition. It’s been working well as I’ve felt more loose and free. Scoring has followed as well, so the games been more fun.
  8. That’s course management not strokes gained metrics. Yes I know that what you stated is in the book, but you need to know a lot more than how many strokes that are being gained or lost. The number is meaningless it’s up to the individual to understand their game. It doesn’t take some revelation and studying of data to figure out that going OB is bad and that in a game that the object is to get a ball in a hole that it’s advantageous to be closer to the hole.
  9. The whole strokes gained thing is fool’s gold. Data is good, but wh3n your variability is so large it won’t make a difference. Strokes gained will tell you to hit it far off the tee, but in reality for most keeping it in play is the best thing for you. Of course if the ball is further it gives you an advantage, wad this really a revelation? For mid to high handicap players the wasted strokes ( penalty, duffs, bad speed on lag putts that lead to 3 putts) cost way more strokes than the fractions that are gained with distance.
  10. I’m so scared to play bad that can’t play good!
  11. I just ordered a 4 iron 0211. I have gen2 0311 , and wanted to get a 3 iron for off the tee, but they’re no longer available so I got the 4 instead. The feel is awesome on the 0211 so decided to save $40 and get 0211 rather than a gen3 3 iron since the lofts are so strong on the 0211 a 4 worked well. Enjoy the new sticks.
  12. I guess I’m in the minority ,but I don’t find these types of events all that exciting. As much as I enjoy women’s golf I just don’t care for this type of format. With that said, how is there not one of these type events with someone versus Korea?
  13. I’m not a fan of it at all , and think it’s kinda stupid, BUT it’s really just all in good fun( to them I guess). It’s not hurting anyone or being offensive. In reality though it’s another thing where golf needs to get over it’s self. It may be a way of giving the middle finger to what is a game that has a history, and currently really, of having some issues with inclusion. So as obnoxious as it is golf has a lot bigger issues than yelling stupid s*** on tv after a ball is hit on the tour.
  14. I like the old e6. Before they went to the soft or speed options that I never fully understood. Probably the straightest ball I’ve ever played and a decent amount of spin.
  15. Using it as entertainment. A robot hits it pretty much the same every time, and I definitely do not. I have used many different balls, and know what works for me at this point. I’m not going to change because of the ball test or ball lab. It’s fun to look at, and talk about, but not going to make me change.
  16. I have not seen any. Some of the courses have online specials though.
  17. Strokes gained has clouded the way we think when we play golf. The idea of hitting it as far as you can is godd, but the second part of it is where you can play your next shot. The gaining of .3 or so strokes is greatly outweighed by the full stroke lost punching out of the woods, or even worse 2 strokes by going OB. So it seems to me the 3w would actually gain strokes for you in a round.
  18. I have played Arroyo and Angel Park. Arroyo is a very nice course. There’s a lot of space between some of the greens to the next tee, but that happens on the courses that meanders through a neighborhood. It’s in great shape and was fun to play. Park is good,but didn’t really make much of an impression on on me.
  19. We get a “ winner” of the most wanted testing, but in actuality there’s not much difference between the “ winner “ and “loser”. So does it really matter? Can’t a casual player just get what they want and enjoy?
  20. This is my favorite place to plyin Vegas, but there’s many good opinions. The Paiute courses are all great and in spectacular condition. A little out of the way, is Chimura and it’s a nice course that’ fits in your moderate price range. There’s more as well but the one’s mentioned in the thread is a great start.
  21. The pxg fitter here brings you back to check everything so I’m surprised that didn’t happen for you. He’s also very accommodating if you feel there is any issues and see if there’s any adjustments that need to be made. So I would reach out to them and see what they can do for you.
  22. The strokes gained has a flaw. It is not course specific. Handicap brings in factors of course difficulty, but strokes gained does not. The strokes gained method doesn’t bring in to play factors like wind, sand traps in your line, slopes, and other factors. The strokes gained method relies on data, and on tour the data is 100 plus players on the same course on the same day. That’s not the case with the strokes gained method in real life. There’s not data except yours for the distance and lie, but not how the course is playing if you’re tracking on the golfmetrics app. My point is it generic and doesn’t consider factors a course may present. Is it useful yes, but it has flaws like the “ traditional “ stats do.
  23. Great article. I’m happy to see Lydia coming back to her form. Was very happy Minjee won her major. One of the big surprises I saw was the 4 wins for Thailand players. It’s been a fun season and the future of the LPGA looks bright to me.
