  1. Hmm removing loose impediments is one thing and ok, but to me that is improving his lie but no one called it out on commentary so I'm not sure
  2. VID_20210124_105600(1)(2).mp4 He hits the ball against a tree stump just in front of him and is clearly unplayable, as he gets to his ball he smooths out the dirt to the right, and then appears to have dropped the ball in the area he has smoothed out? That can't be allowed surely? See the video, I think the white pole cannot be used as a reference point as that gets moved to the left before he drops the ball.
  3. For some reason it really tickled me that in his SkySports animation DJ forgets to actually look at his yardage book, then realises and corrects himself ?
  4. You can play PGA courses from the rough, but you can't play this course from the rough and the Americans don't seem to have grasped that yet
  5. His weakness has always been putting. Tee to green he is as good as anyone in world golf.
  6. Greens right on the edge going to be unplayable soon
  7. Like a cartoon sound effect... unnecessarily loud..
  8. Anyone know how many water balls at 17 there were this year at the players? Can't seem to find this info! Thanks
  9. The Impact Bag provides a snapshot of actual impact position. It's the best training aid out there IMO. I very much disagree. 9 times out of 10 the issue with "my practice swing is great" is that the clubface is wide open. So in a real swing you need to manufacture something to attempt to square the face. The impact of an impact bag basically forces you into a good impact position in terms of face and wrist angles. It provides no feedback to help you do the same in a real swing. This x1000 I went through the exact same practice swing Vs real swing and its because there is no consequen
  10. Hi everyone Just wondered if people out there use different putting techniques/setups for different situations? We all hit different kinds of shots in other areas of the game and would never address the ball in the same way for each, but I noticed recently that I use the same putting setup whether it’s trying to hole out from a few feet, 60 ft lag putt or 15ft left to righter etc. I suppose my technique has evolved from trying to putt along my intended line, and I consider myself a good putter from close range, but it seems to be at the expense of good lag putting which is what I struggle
  11. Yes I think you're right - he is saying with the club reroute, the club has a 'running start' on the downswing instead of starting down from a stationary position as it would do with an on-plane 'back and through' swing, thus giving you more potential for speed. Interesting theory, but I'm not convinced. I doubt you could hit left arm parallel or half swings with that backswing/takeaway. I think the re-route is a 2d result of backswing plane and transition sequence, not a conscious effort. I don't think it is a requirement, more just a function that most people naturally don't swing on one pla
  12. feeling like throwing away the wrist angle (i.e into ulnar deviation) from the top of the backswing works wonders for me, after a long time mistakenly trying to 'hold the lag'. Key for me was to learn to flatten the left wrist so I'm not steep, and allowing the clubhead to release through the ball . If i think of anything in my lower body leading I'm toast.
  13. I have this putter, I love it but can't compare to the older versions. The reason I got this version was because I love the look of the red, seems to visually help me against the green surface. The head shape is obviously identical, so the other change is the insert. Just because it's newer does not necessarily mean you will prefer the feel of the new o works insert, it's a personal choice. Is there anywhere you can go to try a putter with one of the older inserts?
  14. Are you swinging too far from the inside in an effort to hit the draw? If your swing path is way right can cause the blocks, then the hooks come from flipping at impact when your mind tells you the club face is too open (from swinging too much to the right)? Or maybe it's ball position, when you aim up the right you subconsciously play it too far back and when you aim up the left subconsciously play it too far forward?
