5. Stephen Ames calling out Tiger’s driving accuracy before their match. Did he even tie one hole?
4. “Links style golf course.” There is no better way to build a crappy golf course than to get a computer generated blueprint of a great links course in the British Isles and transpose it on the side of a mountain in a western desert with canyons on both sides of every fairway and around every green…and elevating all of the greens with a pot bunker short so the ball can’t be run up.
3. Stepping off the distance on putts. Let’s take the part of the game that most requires feel and touch and insert as much mechanical thought as possible. I am all for walking around and getting the lay and feel of the land, but when no player in the history of the PGA Tour has done something, it’s probably not a good idea.
2. Forcing as much lag as possible as the main focal point of the swing. I think everyone knows where I stand on that. Lag is good, forced lag is the second worst idea in the history of golf.
1. Tasteless joke deleted.
I’d say this post has divided readers into three categories. Those that I have offended, those that think I am an idiot and both. 😀
PS-Sometimes jokes are tasteless, but the world would be a better place if we stepped back and examined the intent and context before attacking the originator.
