1 -- WHAT'S THE POINT?

 Seeing top players struggle through course conditions "too tough for mortals" 

Doesn't Do Golf Any Good!

The 3rd Round of the 2018 US Open at Shinnicock is a case in point.

Steve Learner of The Golf Channel -- not prone to exaggeration -- 

called it a "Mini Debacle!" -- Frank Nobilo called it a "shame". 

"Both Commentators Are Correct!"


Golfers do appreciate a Course that presents challenging shots.

But that's never a good reason to toughen such a Course or inject 

"tricks and gimmicks" to make the battle more difficult than it is.


Even for top professionals golf is a demanding game and

"WE LIKE IT THAT WAY!"

But leave the gimmicks out and let the players show what they can do!

  

**Can you imagine this "Saturday  Disaster" occurring on a "Championship Sunday!"  

USGA Record Books would have to include a "Footnote!" -- **Course Unplayable! 

 Signed- "Very Concerned"

2 -- Has Distance Technology Become "Detrimental?"

Aside from golf courses becoming "too long" for most players -- even pro's -- 

the fact that it's difficult to "Control Distance" -- even with modern Irons -- 

is a detriment to getting shots close to the hole.  


For example, a modern Pitching Wedge can carry the ball 150 yards, 

and -- if necessary -- even longer! 


This may sound great but what club should a player select for a shot 

that requires a carry of 135 or 125, even 155 yards? 


I used to gauge Club Selection according to charts offered by 

Hogan and Nicklaus: 

"5 Iron = 175" and 10-12 yard intervals both up and down.


Today I don't know what to select!


If you have figured out a way to solve the problem please write to let me know.


Frankly, I'm  Stumped!  ...DrDom

4 -- Phil Commits A "No-No" at Shinnicock!

My guess is that Phil will never forget his mistake at Shinnicock and 

wishes it never happened! 

-- Goes to show:

Even the best can make a "Boo-Boo" now and then.

But, you can bet the ranch he'll not make it again! 

5 -- Bryson DeChambeau May Have Something!

"What's Your Thought" about a SET of IRON with all shafts the same length??

Is This The Wave Of The Future? -- SEND YOUR THOUGHTS!

6 -- Are Golf Courses Becoming "TOO LONG!"

I wish the powers that be soon "wake up" to the fact that when a course 

becomes "TOO LONG" average players don't enjoy teeing it up! 


The problem has now become a world pattern and is probably going to take 

serious wisdom to turn the trend to something more sensible!


Maybe people at Augusta should step up and lead us out of the woods on the subject. 

In fact, perhaps they should start by recommending the "BALL" be cut back 

before the Masters turns into no more than a "Pro Pitch & Putt!" 


Nobody wants this but am I the only one who sees where 

"Super Length" is taking us?  


"TIME TO WAKE UP & HEED MR. NICKLAUS:

"CUT BACK THE BALL" -- ASAP!

I highly recommend players serious about their game get into it -- ASAP!

12 -- TOE UP or TOE DOWN -- Possibly Hogan's "SECRET!"

Before you share what you believe, take a look at our 15th Hole and check Ben Hogan at Frame "1:32" .. Then let's hear what you have to say.. -- Almost every instructor I know teaches "TOE UP"

on the Takeaway. --  Even Tour Pro's  demonstrate "TOE UP" on typical Drives & Iron Shots. 

--- BUT NOT BEN HOGAN! ---- COULD THE "TOE DOWN POSITION" --- BE The "SECRET" In The Swing?

15. Bethpage 2019: POA-ANNUA GREENS: "TOUGH STUFF!"

If you are wondering why the Pro's at the 101st PGA Championship are "missing" so many "Short Putts" it's because the "grass" on the Greens at Bethpage ("Poa Annua") are the same as at Hempstead GC where I was a Member in the 70's. 

Actually, Poa-Annua is not a grass but a strong "weed" that hard to get rid of and rather "vein like!" 

In short, the weed is impossible to read and Short Putts approaching the Hole can easily move unpredictably either way! -- VERY FRUSTRATING! -- "No way to avoid these misses!"

"ALSO" 

1. Same thing happens with Long Putts as they "slow" approaching the Hole.

   To account for this, you will notice Pro's almost "charging at" Short Putts and 

   even when playing putts from relatively short distances;

2. SHORT GAME RESULTS are also affected as ball approaches the Hole; and

3. Expect your score to be a few shots "Higher" when playing on "POA --ANNUA!" 

    -- ( Perhaps as many as "4--6 Shots!")

16. NEW BIG IDEA -- "45 CONVERGENCE"-- Click Image For Research

image1

"45" CONVERGENCE @ TOS -- What A CONCEPT!

 This will take some work! -- But I'm going to give it my best! 

"NO DOUBT" -- It's "CORRECT!"

Howard Gerwin -- Senior Player

"CLICK PHOTO" & LEARN ABOUT "45" CONVERGENCE!

 New Finding "Right In Front Of Our Eyes!"

TOS "45" CONVERGENCE

 What I find is that if the Back Hand Grip is set at 45, 

all the rest seems to fall into place naturally. 

 --Question: Is thls correct?

--Aswser: "YES!" 

SPECIAL RESEARCH NOTE -- It Can Take A "LOONG TIME" To See A MAJOR PRINCIPLE!

 This one took more than 500 Years in golf! -- Further research may show that 

"HARRY VARDON" captured the Principle enough to win "6" BRITISH OPENS!

17 ** TIGER "SPECIAL NOTE" --MISTAKE IS QUITE APPARENT

image2

TIGER WOODS -- SPECIAL NOTE

 Here we see Mr. Woods practicing the "WRONG POSITION" of his BACKHAND @ TOS!


The correction is simple: The Back Forearm "REVERSES" on its way up 

as illustrated by Mr. Hogan in the FIVE LESSONS, Page 97!


Clearly, Tiger does "NOT" know this and will do well to check it out "ASAP!"


Given this correction in his swing I have full faith and confidence 

Tiger's "come back" will be better than ever and "permanent!" 

Kindly use CONTACT PAGE to help arrange Telephone Consult .

 The "correction" would be simple for Tiger to perform!

18. "CUT THE BALL BACK!"

WE ARE PLAYING "GOLF!" -- Not Who Can Hit The Moon!

I remember watching the Pro's on TV "every weekend" and using their club choices for shots of all distances.


Back then an Average Drive was 250 Yards; an Average 7 Iron about 150 Yards; and a Long Par 4 was "445 Yards!"


"Boy Oh Boy" -- How Things Have Changed!


Now players often select an "8 Iron" for 180 --190; Drives Fly a comfortable 330; and a long Par 4 is 500+ !

2

"STOP THE MADNESS!" -- IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE! 

-- CUT BACK THE BALL!


We are still trying to play "GOLF" and not who can Hit The Moon First!

Am I the only person who feels this way??
