Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

So, about that steeper shoulder turn thing...**** it.

Saw a video of my swing today and almost puked. If the results were decent I might stay with it, but I've had three horrific range sessions in a row and I'm getting tired of laying the sod over the ball.

As I look at old videos of my swing it's actually apparent that my shoulder turn was not too flat.

I have five keys for the swing:

1) Take the club away with both hands
2) Maintain my spine angle
3) Maintain knee flex
4) Start the downswing with my hips
5) Post on my front leg to make sure I get through the shot

It's usually a fool's errand to **** with the essential nature of your swing. I tried it four years ago to the same kind of disastrous results. My only hope is that I get back to where I was before in the next month or so.

When you start making rather big changes, things get really tricky. I'm not a huge fan of any swing plane, body plane changes like you were talking about because as you've found, they're just really hard to do and hard to get iingrained.

Good, Bad, and Ugly from my round today:

Good (Great for me): Shot 85, which beats my previous best by 2 strokes and shot a 40 on the back nine.

Bad: FOUR putted #4, the 3rd of which was under a foot...(if I believed in gimmes, I might have broke 85)

Ugly #1: Hit my 3rd into the sand on the par 5 15th and let the wedge slide completely under it leaving it in the sand....hit the 4th 15 feet past for a 2 putt bogey. I generally play MUCH better than that from the sand. That's only the 2nd time I ever recall leaving a sand shot in the trap

Ugly #2 Like an idiot, looked at the scorecard on 18 after my buddy said, "Damn Dude, you're killing it today on the back." and saw that I was sitting on 80 going into the final hole. Proceeded to hit my driver into the right rough about 2 feet from a tree where I had to punch out sideways to the fairway...made a bogey 5, but again, could have parred it for a 84 had I not whacked it behind a tree.

All in all, I obviously have to be pleased shooting my best ever (though I know for some of you a 85 wouldn't be a good day) but there's still a bit of regret not being able to break 85.

I'm looking forward to going out over the weekend where I'm fairly certain I'll shoot in triple digits.

Phil came thru today in typical Phil fashion.

Bogeyed the last when he had the lead and forced a playoff

In the playoff chipped it close as hell to win the Scottish open

That driver off the deck was a great shot but he couldn't convert for eagle.

Zack has this most likely if he can pull off this long bunker shot

So long as you have a swing that is sound enough I couldn't agree more with this. Do you have anyone you can go see to look at your swing?

I know it sounds too simple, and you seem knowledgeable about the golf swing, but are you staying down through impact and keeping your eye on the ball? And when I say keeping your eye on it, you visually see the club smack through the ball on each swing, and you are not looking up too soon to see your shot? It is a common problem and could be why you are having inconsistent contact. Having a good grip, shoulder turn, straight firm left arm, good weight shift, and staying down through impact with eyes on the ball is 99% of the golf swing.
