Did your GF take over your account again?  🤓🏌🏼‍♀️

Sigh. Since the recent revelations that transpired over the weekend due to my admiration and subsequent purchase of the Azalea 🌺 shirt VH wore on Thursday at The Masters, I am no longer w/said GF 😔 Bittersweet for sure. 

 

GWRX, continuing to influence my journey in life 🙏🏼

Was going to react to your post wasn't sure which one.

 

"Like" the post?

Post was "sad"?

or "funny"?

 

Need some clarification on intended perception. 😎

Can confirm. I saw said GF out on the town wearing an Apple Watch (which I never would have noticed before this thread). 
 

Her loss though man. Drinks on me. 🥃
 

 


 

 

(Side note: for a sec I read VH as Van Halen and was picturing DLR in an azalea shirt doing jump splits at the Masters. This made me happy.)

What do you have against Valhalla?  It's a wonderful course.

I hate the way it looks with all the power lines everywhere, the green complexes are meh and some of the holes are just terrible. 1 is one of the stupidest opening holes ever, just bomb it over the dogleg and hit a wedge. The double fairway on 7 is useless, no one takes the shortcut on the left because it’s reachable from the right, and that 13th green is hideous. Looks like something out of dungeons and dragons

Agreed. I won’t play a course (or come close to a neighborhood/city) with overhead power lines. Just ew.

And yet the Old Course has a barn to hit over and everyone says it's a wonderful hole.

How do you really feel about it?

Pretty much all great things are unbelievably simple, theoretically at least. The #12 is that. First, if you’re a righty, it’s a cut shot. I’d aim over the left edge of the bunker, play the yardage to the back fridge on that line, and hit a cut. You’d have more options if the pin is front left, especially if tees are forward some. 
 

On TV, the green looks very shallow and stretched perpendicular to the teebox. But it’s not. That 45* angle, and water short AND right, penalize the long pull miss AND the short fade miss— which is to say, It penalizes every miss, because there’s only two for a righty. The other misses are either alignment or wrong club. That’s #12’s genius.
 

I’ve played a green like this. Wilshire CC #9, I think LPGAT plays it as #18. But it’s down hill a little, no water right. But there is a bunker middle short. No matter. It’s a cut shot every time. I was a pretty young player and my caddie wanted to teach me something and tell me that everyone thinks it’s a draw, but I finished his sentence and said it’s a cut shot. The shape of the green is what it’s all about.

 

Playing #12 as I described allows you to hit a good shot and be on the green, a miss right and still have a good chance to be on the green. A straight shot could be okay. But a pull is a miss, but hopefully barring a freak Homa bounce you can chip with some green to work with. So with all that, my odds are most acceptable. Just have to step up and hit a cut (with a closed face as Tiger instructs). 
 

Where the guys go wrong is getting the yardage to the middle of their circular landing zone, when they should be getting the yardage to the spot on the landing zone circumference line 45 degrees northwest of the center. They may be a tiny bit better off on a pull miss, but they are risking it on a right miss. KerPlunk.

 

The wind. I mean, you have to pull the trigger on something. And the ball is only up in the air for a second. Yes, I believe that they know more than I do about wind, but they also analyze when the flag moves a cm at any ol’ tour stop. Could they have made too big a deal about the wind on #12, and the media ran with it, and the players ran with it… The funniest thing is that they always say it’s impossible to judge, but then they always attempt to judge it. Why?? Ha. If you can’t get it right, stop doing it. Hit the ball.

Watching the post tournament interview with Scottie. I seriously can not understand what people don't like about the guy. He's an amazing player, positive, has a great relationship with his caddie, is personable and he is a GREAT interviewer. What would make a better ambassador for the PGA???  I'm so pleased he got his second green jacket today!


God. Some people, maybe not me, think an only fool thinks he knows a thing about a thing. Scottie is pretty darn adamant about that.
