Good morning Spies,

Ive been silent on here for a bit because of been blessed to spend my son’s wedding weekend with the entire side of my family welcoming a daughter to our family. I was privileged to be the officiant marrying Stephen and Kiera. I was with my parents, my sisters and their families and my aunt and uncle. The wedding was Saturday and on Sunday we explored the beauty of Joshua Tree National Park.

A note to the veterans and active duty here. If you have proof of service you get a free lifetime pass to the National Parks.

We leave Joshua Tree today and head to SoCal. We have one of nieces with us from NY. She is a golf nut like us. So we will visit Goat Hill Park, the Scotty Cameron Gallery and Torrey Pines. We won’t be playing but just taking it all in.

Wishing all a wonderful day!

 

Congrats!  Enjoy the trip

Top of the pot spies! ☕  Getting ready to take River out for his walk/run then finish the day with a 1300 tee time at Granite Falls North.  I tell ya, this retirement schedule is brutal 😊.  I also just added uBlock Origin extension (ad blocker) to resolve the sudden increase in forum ad pop ups.  It looks to be working (thanks again @TSauer!)  Hopefully having this s/w and AdBlocker Plus won't start a fire in the CPU 🤣.

Have a great start to the week everyone.

I turned on an ad blocker a few weeks back and have not noticed a single popup since then. Woohoo!! Funny thing is other websites now tell me that they do not like me because I’m blocking their ads, oh well.

Good morning and happy Monday all.

Holy smokes!  are we through the winter?  Is Spring actually coming six weeks early this year?  High temps in the mid- to upper-50's for a good part of the next 10 days!

61* on Sunday, so there's a good chance I'm going to try to find an open course somewhere.

 

 

I'm loving shorts weather here in Florida

No one questioned the intangibles associated with being a good putter like the mental aspect.   The discussion was about how you evaluate if someone putting well; how do you measure state of mind without a player telling you their mental state/commitment for each putt?  @Jim Shaw goes based on the notion of they won the tournament or finished top 5 so they had to putt well.   His sample "data" is personal observation of who he felt putted well or who he felt made "clutch" putts.   Basically a subjective observation on who does or doesn't putt well partially based on how many wins they have.   Lets look at Brad Faxon; who many consider to be a great putter, but he didn't win a lot and lacked in other areas of the game.   My evaluation is more scientific and based on actual putting performance numbers beyond total number of putts.   Stroke Gained is the accepted industry standard to evaluation actual performance.   

If we look at the event from this past weekend, Jim would say that the top 5 finishers were the best putters.   If we look at the data, we can see that they weren't the best and only 1 was iranked n the top ten putters for the week.  

Found this information from a putting instructor that communicates putting performance:

Mexico Open 2024 top-5 stats — putting brought players to the dance but GIRs won the day.

  • Mexico 2024 top 5
    • 65 made the cut, 67 missed, 132 total
    • All stats ranks are out of 65 players.
  • Knapp
    • SG: Off The Tee 2.751 11
    • SG: Approach to Green 8.729 1
    • SG: Around The Green -0.082 42
    • SG: Putting 3.198 17th
    • SG: Total 14.596 1
  • Valimaki
    • SG: Off The Tee 1.898 19
    • SG: Approach to Green 4.162 12
    • SG: Around The Green 1.353 23
    • SG: Putting 5.183 9th
    • SG: Total 12.596 2
  • Jaeger
    • SG: Off The Tee 1.414 22
    • SG: Approach to Green 1.620 33
    • SG: Around The Green 2.336 14
    • SG: Putting 4.226 13th
    • SG: Total 9.596 T3
  • Pan
    • SG: Off The Tee 2.139 16
    • SG: Approach to Green 0.192 48
    • SG: Around The Green 4.401 4
    • SG: Putting 2.864 19th
    • SG: Total 9.596 T3
  • Lower
    • SG: Off The Tee 1.247 25
    • SG: Approach to Green 3.891 13
    • SG: Around The Green 1.538 22
    • SG: Putting 2.920 18th
    • SG: Total 9.596 T3
  • For putting:
    • Valimaki 9th 5.183
    • Jaeger 13th 4.226 (-0.957) 0.24/rnd
    • Knapp 17th 3.198 (-1.985) 0.49/rnd
    • Lower 18th 2.920 (-2.263) 0.57/rnd
    • Pan 19th 2.864 (-2.319) 0.58/rnd

So Valimaki putted a little better than the other four over the week. But Knapp putted better than Valimaki in R4 by net +0.43 putts.

Valimaki putted +5.817 in R1-2 but then faltered in R3-4 -0.634.

Knapp started out R1-2 -0.988 but finished +4.131 R3-4.

  • Looking at combined SG Approach and SG Putting:
    • Knapp +11.927
    • Valimaki +9.345 (-2.582)

Approach play was the reason for the win

 

 

Nice validation @cnosil, happy that you feel good about your interpretation… 

great thing about forums, everyone has an opinion that doesn’t need to be validated to be their truth. 

committed to performance excellence

To be fair... I was wearing shorts yesterday too... it was only in the upper 40's so probably not quite the same "shorts" weather... but I'll take it!
