    Had a great time yesterday watching Badds, Bubba, Ryan Moore and Michael Putnam tear it up at Chambers Bay. Here's a few pics of the day.

    Bubba hitting his approach on #1.

    Badds getting ready to hit his second shot on a par 5. He hit a monster cut that landed in the waste area short of the green. He made birdie anyway.

    That ball is cringing.

    My best pic of the day... Bubba driving the green - 304 uphill all the way, and he put it almost off the back.

    Ryan Moore on the same hole.

    I've got a few videos as well if anyone wants to see them. It was a real treat to watch these guys play an entire round. The ball striking was just amazing.

    Awesome pics, thanks.... and I'd love to see some videos, especially of Bubba. [​IMG] I'd actually love to get the video file if you can get a short one of Bubba and Ryan's full swings. I can get them up on the swing analyzer.

    Me too! haha.

    Is it just me or is Putnam's downswing, initial move anyway, kind of ugly?

    My network admin would have my head if I emailed all those videos to everyone, so I'll upload the originals tomorrow and you all can download them.

    In person, I thought Putnam had a really elegant swing. He definitely has an early and aggressive hip turn, and hits a pretty low riser with lots of spin. He struck some of the nicest golf shots I've ever seen. He's a big guy, 6'5" or so, and has really nice tempo, kinda Els-ish.

    Alright gents, I was forced to punt. Our email server at work won't let big attachments through, and my web host was being a punk, so I just put all the vids up on youtube. Just do a search for raindog98546 - there's nine videos up from the event. There's also a vid of my swing from a while back; please disregard that one. :laugh:

    Thanks N for sharing

    Where in the World is that course? Looks very nice indeed, how many attended the event?

    Isn't Ryan Moore the Walker Cup kid, just turned pro. He is awesome with the flatstick, from what I saw anyway.

    Who won?

    The course is in University Place, just south of Tacoma, Washington. It's really a masterpiece... read more about it here www.chambersbaygolf.com. The USGA is looking at it as a possible US Open venue. I played it once - it's an amazing course. It's been my only experience on a true links layout, and I loved it.

    There were about 700 people there. Big turnout for a charity event. The players were remarking about the big crowds.

    Yeah, Ryan Moore is a local boy. Had an amazing run as an amateur in 2004 - US Amateur, US Pub Links, Western Amateur, Sahalee Players Championship, NCAA Championship. Walker Cup was 2003. He turned pro and got his card without going to Q school - only the fourth pro ever to do that. He's a stud. I noticed him taking more club than the other fellow at times, but he played great.

    Aaron Baddeley won the most skins, followed by Bubba Watson. It was amazing to watch the guys hit it 300 yards on a rope, and then watch Bubba hit it 30 yards past them.
