First I want a huge shout out to my boy Matt. Two of my students asked me to play yesterday afternoon and Matt broke par for the first time.
He about gave me a heart attack on 18. He was 1-under, had about a 30 footer for birdie and says, “I three putt this green all the time.
He then runs it 6 feet past. If two of my boys three putted on back to back days to miss the mark by one, I was going to have an exorcism.
He saved me and made it.
I had a fun round. Preparing or the long drive in October, I am starting to work on making a bigger turn. Today I got the urge to pull the handle when I made that big turn and hit 4 errant drives. Two weren’t that bad (missed fairway by a dew yards on holes I wouldn’t hit driver in a tourney) two were very bad.
That’s 8 penalty shots. I also three putted 9 for par.
Makes it funny that I had a 15 footer to break par on 18. Yes, you read it right.
I would not wish that collapse Adam Scott had on my worst enemy. Some people never recover from that. I hope he wins and soon to get this out of his head.
The Foley and Tiger fans can hate on me but I still think that shoulder turn is too vertical on the downswing and requires too much manipulation at the bottom. It doesn’t hold up when he really needs it.
I will put it this way.
I say the golf swing is not a pin hole it is a window and you are trying to get close to the middle of the window.
Tiger’s swing is too close to the edge of the window. He can pure it on the range, during regular tour events and early on during majors. As soon as the extreme heat arrives, he goes outside the window.
You can disagree and call me wrong, but that is my perception. Am I supposed to hide my analysis because some people don’t like it?
