  1. Thank you. One of my favorites as well. Paul Newman had some amazing performances, but there was something about his grown up “fast Eddie” Felson: the perfect combination of cool, suave, and class. He deserved an Oscar for many of his performances; I’m glad he at least got the one for, “The Color of Money.”
  2. Good point. It really does. It is a very athletic golf swing and Wolff is a very athletic young man.
  3. He could moonwalk past the ball before starting his backswing, it doesn't matter. What does matter is the position he gets in before impact (see the third picture in the series above). Shaft riding down the top of right forearm, right elbow pinned, and amazing depth with his arms. That is why he's one of the best young players in the game. The business end of the swing is all that matters, and he's pretty good at it. It's also interesting to note that he definitely goes into flexion with his left wrist. Doing that holds the clubface in a closed and stable position so all he has to
  4. That is probably very accurate. It might even be connected to his sponsorship with Cobra. It will all add up to more driver sales for sure.
  5. I think it's funny that some have made comparisons to Tiger. Tiger gained his reputation by winning golf tournaments. If any hype surrounded him (commercials and such), it was contractual obligations to his sponsors. Now, we have a professional athlete (in Bryson), with the same level of sponsor money, who also finds he needs to make YouTube video's like he's trying to avoid a day job. It doesn't make sense to me. Do your talking with your golf game. Tiger did. Maybe it seemed a little cold and indifferent at the time, but now, looking back, it seems very dignified. That is my opinion.
  6. What amazes me about Langer even more than his golf game is the fact that he's gone 50 odd years without gaining more than a few pounds and without losing hardly a hair from his head. That is strong!
  7. I agree with you on Seve, though I think Phil is very, very close. Just a fun hypothetical for you regarding betting your money: say we could take Faldo, Trevino, and Phil in their prime and put them in a stroke play challenge match for serious cash, would you still bet them over Phil? I would take Phil. Sometimes I think playing for the cash gets his game up more than anything else, including major championships.
  8. I hope it's mostly about golf. I could care less about his personal life - it's none of my business.
  9. It's funny how these threads always shift gears. It always makes for great reading, though, and as usual, you guys have delivered. Thank you. Phil's place among the very best is a challenging distinction. One incredible putt by Payne Stewart and one whiff of the driver are all that keeps him from being anointed. People say his game didn't fit the US Open, yet he put himself in position to win so many times. And not only the US Open, but in many other majors before he finally broke through. Love him or hate him, Phil is a fine thoroughbred. You could argue for Trevino and Faldo in
  10. His short game could use some work, and I'm sure if he's serious about playing tournament golf for a living, he's been focusing on it. Jamie seemed every bit a decent stick, and I am commenting here with very limited information as I only watched him a few times during tournament coverage, but when I did, I thought he was playing very common looking golf. It didn't seem like he was interested in using the extra gears he had on offer. If I were him, or Kyle Berkshire, I would be bringing that edge very aggressively to the tournament rounds. I'd even have multiple drivers in my bag,
  11. I followed Nick for nine holes shortly after his run at number one in the world. I swear he did not miss the absolute center of the clubface on a single shot over those holes. Every lie, every situation, the golf ball left the club with the same flushed sizzle. I remember thinking that golf must be a lot of fun when you can do that. He was a legendary ball-striker.
  12. You're quite welcome. I thought he was a perfect entry in the less known but deserving of mention theme we've been on lately.
  13. Whoops. Looks like I get an F for reading comprehension. Still, the EYE2 deserves it's credit in these few posts; it is on a very short list of the finest wedges ever designed.
  14. Haha, I'll pour the J.T.S. Brown on the rocks, and you can sing, "Go Away Little Girl". As for the pool table, I think you might know your way around one of those pretty well. I haven't met too many good golfers who don't.
