Spieth is cut from the same cloth as those guys. Money is a complete non factor at that level of drive, he’s not an average joe who hangs up the day job as soon as he doesn’t need it.

  4. > @"North Texas" said: > I have played with someone who had real putting yips and I have played with someone who has real chipping yips. Jordan does not have the yips in any part of his game. Not even close. Yep. The guy is averaging -.482 SG off the tee. That is essentially two penalty shots off the tee per tournament that the average tour player is not hitting into. Over the course of 72 holes (and about 56 tee shots), his driving is going to look virtually identical to the average pro save for one or two extra foul balls (the average tour pro is also hitting occasional foul balls
  5. > @Krt22 said: > Semantics. When you go from multi major winner to 184th in SG off the tee, it's the yips that manifest themselves in legit full swing issues. He even stated after missing the secondary cut "I don't know what's going on" It's not semantics. The yips are a real thing. If he had the yips he wouldn't be 184th in SG off the tee, he would be 100,000th. If he had the yips it would also be near impossible for him to return to form as there is no known treatment. He doesn't have the yips, he has a correctable swing problem.

He has a huge full swing issue, the number of doubles and triples he has been carding recently is terrible > The yips are a neurological condition that manifests itself physically. They will make a #1 OWGR caliber player look like a 30
  7. He doesn't have anything remotely resembling the driving yips. Stephen Bowditch has the driving yips, Spieth is just below average. If he had the driving yips he wouldn't make a cut.
  8. Kaymer is 91st in the world. He’s not playing poorly and he is not hurting for playing opportunities. With only 14 events played, he essentially chose to give up his card.
  9. I’m not sure why so many people around these parts view money as a demotivator for top PGA Tour golfers. You just don’t get these types of takes when talking about top tier players in other sports. Does anybody think guys like Lebron, Curry, Brady, or Trout didn’t feel the need to fulfill their potential because they got rich young? Money isn’t stopping anyone with Tigeresque potential because money is never the motivation for guys like that, it’s just a perk.
  10. > @smashdn said: > > @mjen43 said: > > **** no. There is no evidence "round" people have higher levels of hand-eye coordination than athletic people. In fact I would say the opposite is more likely true, as "round" people are less likely to have the required dedication and discipline to push themselves to excel in a physical endevour than those who keep themselves in shape. > > > I think you are getting cause and effect mixed up. You don't have better hand eye coordination because you are round. You get round because the advantage to being a physical specimen is
  11. > @smashdn said: > Michael Jordan > Tim Tebow > > Not MLB level but still technically professional baseball players. > > Here is an aside question to ponder, if the equipment forced a higher level of hand-eye coordination/skill and rewarded athletic ability less (think persimmon and blades), would we see the body-type of golfers who are at the top of the sport transition back to folks who are a little more "round?" Hell no. There is no evidence "round" people have higher levels of hand-eye coordination than athletic people. In fact I would say the opposite is mo

  13. I probably would. I picked it up at 11/12 years old and made basically every major life decision from then to 3 years post college graduation based on golf. My results were never elite at any level, but for whatever reason I always thought eventually I’d figure it out. Now I have a mediocre job that I have minimal interest in and am not very good at due to failing to explore academic interests, dead dreams, and no tangible goals in life anymore/nothing I’m working towards. I got all my friends (who I hardly see these days due to life), had great times, and got college paid for out of gol
  14. Koepka admitted himself he wasn’t good at baseball, which is why he turned to golf. DJ would have to play PG in the NBA because he is short for a basketball player (lol good luck with that). Nobody on tour could play any other sport professionally, or they would have. Golf doesn’t pay well enough for a real athlete to choose it over other major sports.

Perkins is a private establishment so I guess technically not.
