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!

I'm pretty good at putting and I sink my fair share of shit outside of 15 ft. Unfortunately it is for par saving endeavors because I cannot get off the tee right now.
My two keys to putting, which generally would help far more if I weren't so ADD and forgetful, are to take the putter back low and keep my left wrist angle at impact. I find I get the purest strike that way.

I've also found that the slower I take the putter head away on putts inside five feet, the better my contact. YMMV.

LOL NO. See Gary Player and the "Pop Stroke". Also if you hit down through the ball properly it will scoot just a hair and then crawl into the hole like a ground squirrel.

It never served me consistent enough although when struck well watching the ball crawl into the hole is a great thing.

I researched this and found that he did this only within 10 feet. That he did not do a follow through which seems a bit bizarre but he is a 9x major champion so can't argue against him. I guess we each have our methods, but hitting down on the putter just seems like a bad idea. You are going to pinch the ball into the ground and who knows what is going to happen after.

No pros that I know of do the pop putting currently, so that might give you an idea of where that methodology has gone. Maybe it is effective, but only for Gary Player.

Pplayed for the first time in two weeks. Had an awful front at 12 over, but nutted up on the back with 3 over to shot 1 under my handy. I was happy with that. Two snowmen on the front.

I know there are some golf experts out on CP, wanted to run something by you guys as I am too much of a cheapass to pay $80 for a pro's opinion.

When I miss with my swing, it is a low draw, borderline hook. About half the height of a ball flight when I strike it pure, and I do this starting with my 4 iron on up to the big D. I am pretty sure it is in my grip, as when I completely nail the grip as in it feels great and I have complete control of the club, I hit it pure over 90% of the time. The problem is when I don't get that consistent grip that is ideal, I tend to get this miss.

Any grip drills out there? I use the interlock and much prefer it to the other grips. Again with the miss I still strike it pretty good, but it is a half height ball flight with a draw/hook.

Maybe it is not the grip...

There is the classic drill where you put a tee in between the part of your hands where your two thumbs meet(top of tee facing you). If you take a swing and the tee comes out then your hands are coming apart.

I do a lot better helping people when I can see things visually. When I struggle, I get the old hook as well, since my ball flight is a natural draw. I started going with a slightly weaker grip and making sure that my hips always come through. I drill to make sure your lower body comes through while keeping your hands from racing out in front is to practice with both your feet together. When you swing the only way you can hit the ball with any strength at all is to use your lower body. If you only use your arms then you are going to nearly fall over as you swing.

You also should check how your shoulders/spine angle is set. If your shoulders are level try dropping your right shoulder a little(assuming you are a righty).

Try and keep your body turning throughout the swing, don't stop when you get to the ball. Your arms flip over and you'll release the club too soon, causing you to hit a low pull yank.

The only play is to go for it. You miss, you still shoot 63 and have the lead. You hit it, you have 59 and 58 in play.

IF he pulls this out and does it, this 59 would be one of if not the best 59 ever shot.

To shoot 59 there? On that golf course? Yeah, thats crazy.
