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!

He has a proficiency for playing well in a certain type of major. It's not a coincidence that all his majors have come in conditions with abnormally soft greens and very little to no wind.

He's an undoubtedly great player, but he doesn't have the kind of game that will translate on all types of courses.

If you want a comparison for McIlroy here it is: at this point in his career, he's a young Nadal, a guy that is nearly unbeatable when playing at top level on a certain type of track. He hasn't yet matured into what Nadal became in subsequent years.

I was really pulling for Sergio as well. He seems like he'd be a good dude to play a round with and then shoot some bull with afterward. Plus, he's been through a lot in his career.

Agree that Rory seems a little uppity but I don't hold that against him. I admire great golf and his game is flawless, absolutely flawless. My son asked me if I think he'll ever win the masters and complete the grand slam and I said yes, I think it's more a matter of when than if. He's that good and he's only 25. Heck, I've got shoes older than that.

Congrats to Rory.

The last thing I did today at the golf course was hit 15-20 2 irons in a row. I hit them off a low tee and for the most part I hit them pretty well. The last one I hit I decided I'd hit a fade. I'm pretty much a right to left player these days but I hit it perfect. It was like a walk off homerun.
Good physical practice hitting 2 irons.

Pretty good comparison. Nadal took a while to get good on hard/grass courts, but still was completely dominant on his one surface (and amazingly continues to be a decade later). Like Nadal, I think McIlroy has the talent to go down as one of his sport's all-time greats, but he still has to develop in a few areas before he gets there.

Today was also the first time he's really had to deal with any final round back nine pressure to win a major, so that's something that will help in the future.

I played the next leg of my tour past Sunday and I played like a wuss. I played Redfield GC in Eugene, MO. I'd never played it before and it was a windy day so the going was tough for me. I shot a big fat 84. I didn't hit enough greens and I putted poorly. I had a lateral hazard and an OB. All tat is the result of a lack of confidence that I woke up with one day here while back. I played decent and won a match and another tournament and then I went to sleep. When I woke up I was so full of self doubt and suddenly I suck.

Fickle ****ing game

First of two posts. This one is a gossip post:

Dustin Johnson is taking an indefinite leave of absence from the tour. Supposedly the guy has a pretty bad cocaine habit (which may have been the real reason he took time off for a back injury a few years back), and Gretzky's daughter isn't considered the greatest of influences upon him.

Furthermore, something I didn't know is that he was involved in stealing a handgun and buying ammunition for it at Wal-Mart as a teen. Said gun was used in an execution style murder a few days later. Johnson's prints were on the gun, but in exchange for his testimony, all charges against him were dropped and the accused (friend's brother) was convicted and is serving life.

Also, apparently he was slinging blow in high school.

Yikes.

I doubt living in LA with millions of dollars, plenty of downtime, and hitched to Paulina Partygirl is the best influence on a recovering druggie

DJ has never been the Golden Child. His rep preceded him.

As for this latest turn, I doubt there are any surprises. John Daly is about to roll over the senior tour, and there will be a bad boy vacuum. DJ fills the bill. Too bad, though... I kind of like him.

Second of two: in the midst of a two year process to find out what in the **** has been wrong with my swing I've finally figured it out:

I **** goats.

Namely, early extension. The sensation of keeping the angle between the spine and hips and not clearing up and out is so foreign to me that I'm feeling muscles in my back I haven't felt in years. It's going to take a while to strengthen them back up. Biggest issue at this point is making sure that I turn my hips enough in the backswing so that they don't stall and force me to early extend when I get stuck. That, and fatigue.

It's certainly untapped a lot of hidden power that I'd previously lost.
