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 played Ironhorse two weeks back with a 20-handicapper who wanted to play from 5900. And it was actually quite fun because I had to use all sorts of different clubs off the tee and think more about landing spots than just teeing up driver every hole.

The USGA has a "tee it forward" campaign suggesting people do so to make the game more fun and get more scoring chances. I think most weekend warriors have trouble with 390 par 4s because you have to hit it 250 and straight to have a legit approach. If you're wide you have very little chance getting to the green in 2 esp if you're hitting just off the fairway from 180 in rough.
I would probably score better where I'd play if I would take the driver out of the back on most holes. I could hit a 5 wood and have a mid-short iron approach in on almost all the Par 4s, and still several wedge opportunities, but I play for birdies, thus bringing in double bogeys, and worse.

Here's something you could try, and it's both useful and fun: go to the range and learn how to hit a half driver. I did this last year because there is a Par 4 I play that plays about 240 and I would have to nut a 3 wood to get it there and if I hit it poorly at all I would be blocked out by trouble. I found that taking a half-3/4 swing with a driver would put me on or near the surface with far fewer issues if I didn't make a good swing. It would be a wise way to play those shortish par 4s.

Wow, really dumb move by Tiger, just hit a circus cut from the deep rough on hole 8. Did a chicken wing thing with his elbow, really dumb if you ask me. He is up 8 strokes on second place, not a time to pull this type of shot with the major coming up and his injury history.

And almost sunk the chip for birdie.

Getting off the tee is critical in golf, absolutely critical. It is just below putting, but only just below it.

With today's 3 wood distances, if you are a young strong golfer, you don't really need a driver cause the 3 wood goes 270+. Hit that sucker straight off most tees and you are near scratch golfer I would think.

I still carry a driver, but I probably shouldn't.

The half driver is a fun shot, rolls a long way for me. I like the half three wood too on holes where I should be hitting a long iron.

Yep.

My driver is officially out of the bag. I've gone Full Phil and put a 13.5 X Hot Pro 3W in the bag, and it's just as long as my driver.

If anyone is interested in a Nike VRS with an Ion played Ahina in stiff, let me know.

Did it yesterday too when Keegan got stuck in the rough on 18. Earlier a guy barked out to Chris Wood "you're not Tiger Woods!", to which Nantz said "That's not very nice."


But nothing tops this one:

I think the score literally didn't change. I went to the race today, so I only saw the beginning of the round being replayed on golf channel.

So just bought the V1 swing analysis on the iPad . If any of you guys are interested in seeing your swing and analyzing the lines, it's a great buy

Speaking of apps, I waited for two years for Ping to release their iPing app for Androids. They finally did, made a cradle for the Galaxy S3, my phone, only for the app to get the worst reviews of any app I've ever seen.
