    I agree with much of what you wrote; however, I'm not as optimistic as you that American women will have a sudden collective epiphany to work harder.

     

    If people fail to accept the difference in work ethic as being real, new programs, empty words, photo-ops and money won't change a thing.

     

    Nice.  Insult the collective of "American women."  Chicks dig that.

    Services (I use the word lightly) like 23andMe are about as reliable as tarot cards.

     

    They are only interested in collecting your genetic information and that of as many people as possible, so they can eventually use it to identify you by correlating it with other information. One of the founders of 23andMe is married to Sergei Brin, the founder of Google.

     

     

     

    Ironically, I used Google to look up your claim.

    Technically, he's half Asian and half alien/cyborg.

     

    No human could play like him for so long.

     

    The drugs helped a lot.

    Let me clarify with BOLD words, since you overlooked their inclusion.   

     

    The short version... still too many males and Lots of them live in LA, NOCA and on the east coast.  NO where did I use the word "MOST" live in.... nor stipulate diet or reference Instagram, though there's some merit to that.   😛

    You have a good day.

     

    Like 10  of them?  100?  1,000? How many is "lots?"

    It's a matter of when not if. The guys on tour know a lot more about his recovery then the media does.  Stricker said a month ago that Tiger's rehab is focused on playing again. It's gonna happened

     

     

    Yeah, he'll be back.  He'll win at least one more regular tournament to set the all time record, but he won't win any more majors.  Jack's record is safe.

    every other thread in the last two weeks has devolved into some sort of fitness debate. 

     

    all the “experts” on this forum know just slightly less about fitness than they do about the golf swing. but they’re WRX-long on opinions. 

     

    Aren't you one of those "experts?"  😂

    Daniel Berger switched from tennis to golf. His father was a tennis pro.

     

    Here's a thought to consider if you're a right-handed golfer:

     

    Visualize the golf swing as a left-handed, two-handed, back-handed, cross-court winner from right to left. Step into the shot with your left foot (just for the feel), start the racket low off your right knee, blast your left arm off the chest with a flat left wrist at contact and a high finish.

     

    Think about it and make that natural move, you'll be surprised at how quickly you get that feel.

    Good luck.

     

    I tried that but kept missing the golf ball.  Maybe if I used a 3 foot tee or something?

    Some golf statisticians say Tiger was so good from 5ft and in because he was so consistent with his start lines that he could afford to hit them very firm and neglect the smaller capture size. Much like his course management skills, perhaps this was yet another one of the things he figured out before it was really quantified and backed by data.

     

    Have you ever seen Tiger practice the 5 footers by keeping his putter head between two tees during the stroke?  I've tried that.  It really works.

     This guy was my strength coach at Temple U in the 70's

      The amount of weight he and some of the other guys could move was mind boggling

    Like at how much he's wrapped his knees.  Probably his ankles, too.  Smart man.

    A little background ... My dad is 66, but if I'm being totally honest, he's a rough 66.  He missed this entire season due to a variety of health issues.  He seems to be close to coming out the other side, looking like just one hip surgery left to go this off-season and he should have enough rehab time to be ready for next year.  Even before the multitude of issues he had this year, it's been catching up with him slowly but surely over time.  

     

    Back in the day, the old man was a stick.  Scratch for most of my childhood, fairly big money matches, multiple club championships, etc.  But his game has been in decline for quite a while now.  Over time he's transitioned from blades to GI, long (and mid) irons to hybrids, 7 and 9 woods, steel to graphite, all of it.  But now, we need to go even further.  

     

    I've convinced him that we need to get him some clubs that (A) he can easily play and enjoy and (B) that will not put unnecessary strain on his body.  And here's where you boys come in.  Looking for recommendations on hybrids, irons and wedges, but my problem is I'm not very knowledgeable on what's out there to fit his needs.  If he was looking for blades or player's cavities, thin top lines, minimal offsets, heavy steel shafts, then ok, that's my wheelhouse.  But that couldn't be farther than what we're looking for.  Definitely looking in the GI category, forgiving, easy to launch, long (totally ok with vanity lofts in this case), lightweight shafts (maybe vibration dampening?), etc. 

     

    Great thing about this beautiful game is anyone at any level can enjoy it, and he does.  Even with his diminished skills, he still gets amped for every single round he plays.  It killed him that he couldn't play this year and he is already counting down the days to next opening day.  I'm just trying to help make however many rounds he has left enjoyable.

     

    Any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated.  Cost likely not an issue.  Please don't suggest he just go get fitted, he ain't gonna go for it.  Thanks to all in advance.

     

     

     

     

     

    Ping G425 irons with Steelfiber i80 shafts.  Very forgiving club head with a light weight but very stable graphite shaft.  If you order them now, they'll be ready next year by the time he finishes rehabbing.

    225 grams minimum a day. My goal is my BW, 245g a day. I don’t measure every gram though. I just kinda ball park it. 

     

    From what I understand, the amount you should eat to grow muscle is a function of both your body weight and body fat percentage.  I'm not a bodybuilder, so I don't know for sure.

    I’ve spent 5 days a week working out for as long as I can remember. I take your accusation as a compliment. Thanks! Not the first time I’ve heard it from someone’s who ego won’t let them accept someone is just bigger and stronger than they are without “cheating”. If it helps, I’m sure your IQ is much higher than mine! 😂 

     

    I have no doubt that you're bigger and stronger than I am, just as I have no doubt that my IQ is indeed higher.  😂

     

    Arnold used to do T-Bar Rows with 5 plates.  Of course he was juicing back then, too.  You seem to be just as strong as he was, but without juicing.  That's quite the accomplishment.  You must go through massive amounts of protein.

     He says he weighs 245

    Weights do not seem excessive for someone that size

     

    I guess, if you're young and have a strong back and legs...and wear a belt...and take supplements.  Seated rows are a lot safer on your body over the long run.

    The standing 230 lb cable row is ur example for me juicing?! 😂 The 225 lb bent over barbell rows are way more demanding! I do the cable rows when I’m feeling lazy. Haha

     

    Nice deflection.  You should lay off that stuff.  It will kill you in the long run.

    Good routine.

     

    But the weight you’re using can range from great (if you weigh 160) to pretty average (if you weight 200). 
     

    Some Guys weight over 200 can pull down 250 but barely do 5 pull-ups. 

     

    I'm old and weak, 59, but I lift with some pretty strong active duty special forces guys.  I've yet to meet anybody who can pull down 250 for 3 sets of 8 in good form.
