HEALTHYGOLF.net/ SEE HOGAN -- GOLF WINDOW "BLUE PRINT" -- FOR BEST PLAY!
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"
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

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!
"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!
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?

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!"
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!")
This will take some work! -- But I'm going to give it my best!
"NO DOUBT" -- It's "CORRECT!"
Howard Gerwin -- Senior Player
New Finding "Right In Front Of Our Eyes!"
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?
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!
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!"
The "correction" would be simple for Tiger to perform!
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+ !
"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??
