Re: December Golf!!!

I'm so jealous, although there is no chance someone is playing today in Virginia Beach. I'm getting to be about done with the bathroom remodel. Luckily there is light at the end of the tunnel.

This makes me feel better about my shot gun burst of an 8i.

Re: Bawlz

*note on temp reference, the balls are room temp and the ball temperature has more affect on distances than ambient temp. Ambient temperature has damn near 0 noticeable affect on shot characteristics (it's less than 1% difference in 20 degrees of temp). I've tested this when bored before, stat nerd...

Re: Bawlz

To be clear I completely agree with this. What i do use my simulator for is to tell me what I should expect 67% (1 standard deviation) of the time when I hit my 8i. That is a shot that carries 157 yards and is slightly right of "center" with a dispersion of around 20 yards. It's an elliptical dispe...

Re: Bawlz

I don't know. I think you just give yourself a pass/fail grade based on some guidelines.

Then you have some data around the ability to stay in the right state of mind or something like that. I'm sure it's not perfect but data > no data in my mind

I just got back from playing. Hit the ball okay, but wasn't real sharp. This discussion must have been in my head. Is there a program that can take THAT into consideration?
I believe decade golf has a mental score card. It's too expensive for me to do it, but I am impressed with what I see.

Re: Bawlz

Also to be more clear, that blue dot is where I want my ball to end. Given I typically hit a cut that moves about 5ish yards my "start line" is barely going over the top of the left fringe. There are 3 trees behind the green about 50 yards back, my start point is the left tree behind the green. I've...

To be clear I've hit an 8i on this hole that damn near crossed the lake where the cart path in the upper right is. So obviously I can hit them out of that circle.

Re: Bawlz

Sorry Doug, you are right and I was being very general with my statement. What I really meant was that a good golfer would know what their personal dispersion is from various distances and play a shot that makes the most since for that dispersion. For example the average PGA tour player's dispersion...

Re: Bawlz

So I'm looking for the data to extrapolate. I'm trying to find it for a scratch golfer and have only found it for a 14 handicapper so far. But from 100 yards a 14 handicap can expect to be within 30' from the hole. From 135 yards they can expect to be 53' from the hole. Given most greens are around ...

Re: Bawlz

I'd make an argument that going after that back pin (even from as short as 60-70 yards) is doing your game a disservice. We, all non plus handicappers, should be trying to hit the center of the green on every shot outside of 50 yards. So we are all doing a disservice to our game, be it different bal...

Re: 2018 Fall Support Group

As for now I prefer the Bret Favre approach to cold weather. Dress appropriately and get use to it. Going from warm to cold then back to warm causes constant shock and your body won't be able to adapt. I even went to the extent of cracking my car window on the way to the course to acclimate. When i ...

I see cantlay is in the last group (I think they regroup after every round). That is good news, so his group will finish 1.5 hours after the penultimate group finishes.

Re: Just Keep Swimming

I was reading a thread about putting at wrx. The person kept describing their putting issues and it sounded like they were describing my putting. Decent lag putter, but pretty terrible inside 15'. Miss too many 3-5' putts and don't really make many from 5-15' either. They talked about how they weren...

And now, because it was so crap, Comcast is refunding subscribers their money.
As they should, well to be fair the pga tour should be the ones out of pocket. Because of their regulations it was nothing but a 2 man tour event. Other than the chip in at 17 for suspense it was really dumb.

Re: Who is going to watch Tiger vs Phil?

So I just read an article that really pisses me off.

Apparently the pga tour steped in and did some drastic regulating on what could happen, especially with side bets.

No wonder the damn thing was just a normal pga tour event.

It was absolutely nothing new. It got advertised with side bets, trash talking and announcers of Charles Barkley, Pat Perez, and Samuel l Jackson. There was no real side bets, no trash talking (actually you could hear Phil tell his brother not to curse), and the main announcers we're standard boring...
