Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

i know there are a bunch of ways a caddy can cost his player a penalty but i'm thinking one huge way is stepping on the line of his upcoming putt.

is that correct? anything else you have to be very careful with? do all the rules that apply to the player apply to the caddy?

Don't touch the ground in the line of a putt with the flagstick.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

One thing I've noticed is caddies when holding the flagstick is they hold it upside down (so the flag is almost touching the ground). Is that the reason they do it? Never understand why they would before.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I caddied in a Canadian Tour event a few years ago. Just make sure your guy doesn't have more than 14 clubs, keep the clubs and ball clean. The other caddies will help you out with raking bunkers, the flag etc

It's usually to stop the flag from flapping in the wind

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Is this forum active? I lurk here from time to time but can't really tell. I'm gonna try to chop like 25 strokes off my game and was kind of hoping to post swing videos a few times a week, maybe some round updates, etc. and I don't really have a blog or anything with an audience that would care about such things and be able to give intelligent feedback

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I'm having an issue with my hybrids. I hit them pure on par 5s when I'm hitting my 2nd shot, either laying up or going for it, but when I use them on a long par 4 when I'm trying to hit the green on my 2nd shot, or I'm teeing it up on a long par 3, I ****ing choke like a lil biyatch. These damn clubs were supposed to make this shot easier, not harder. I hit them so well on the par 5s, tho.

I have no idea what's going on with the par 4's, but sometimes teeing the ball too high on a par 3 can cause problems. Maybe hit them off the ground or tee it extremely low.

There's less pressure to hit it well on the par 5 because the successful result (having an eagle putt) is beyond expectations. If you don't succeed, it's no big deal because the par is 5 and you still have a legit chance for a birdie attempt in many cases.


I actually have the same problem with my 3wood and hybrid off the tee on short par 4s. To simulate the par 5 fairway shots, I'll often just hit the ground with the club to create sort of a flyer lie on the tee box instead of using a tee or hitting off whatever tee surface is presented. It's helped a lot and I know it's a mental problem.

Edit: They made it. Starts at 4p ET.

Muni He sighting in the Ladies NCAAs. She is playing for USC and (sadly) is still just 17. I didn't catch the morning matches so I hope USC advances.

If you have no idea who I'm talking about you are new to this board. Here is a reminder.



Also her USC bio:

Very good player.
She would play at our club with some regularity while in High School.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

fyi, for anyone near vancouver, jamie sadlowski is signed up for monday's qualifier at swaneset.

given that he missed the cut in dallas i'd say decent chance he makes it although i bet he signed up for qualifier before he got his dallas sponsors exemption..

i'll probably go no matter what to watch for awhile as a couple of good acquaintences are playing

i'm caddying for the actual tourney next week in vancouver.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

what were the clubs on all three? was the last one a full shot? you seemed to be smoother and a lot more comfortable there (with less extra movement) than the other two.

i also thought you were setting up pretty closed on the first two swings until i saw the alignment sticks on the third.

I think all 3 shots were pitching wedge. I'm aiming for the second green in the distance, but I do tend to get a little right with my alignment. Third shot was actually before the round and I was hitting the ball pretty decent until I hit the back 9 and lost all steam.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

nice swing and very gutsy to put it on here.

you are picking the club up a bit when you stop turning and you are obv - i think - "over the top" but i assume anyone posting here who isn't elite will be OOT

i wouldn't change anything... i'll have to look at my swing on tape and see if i'll post it.

Thanks. I'm incredibly over the top and across the line and its getting worse. This is the worst ball striking I've had in years, but I know it will come around as my timing gets better. Believe it or not, I've been as low as a 5 index last year. Despite the bad fundamentals, I still get the ball around the course and have a decent enough short game.

I'm actually going to see a new pro for lessons next Friday, I'm too frustrated with the state of my game at the moment.
