    Had a lesson from Ian Poulter...well, sort of...

    When I watched the video, frame-by-frame, I noticed that the angle of his left arm to the shaft was about 67degrees at the top. When his arm was parallel to the ground the angle dropped to 42 degrees. When his arm was about 45 degrees below parallel to the ground, the angle was back to around 65...

    Had a lesson from Ian Poulter...well, sort of...

    I was at The Masters this year for the Monday practice round. Ended up sitting at the 7th green when Ian, Paul Casey, and Justin Rose were coming through. They finished practicing on the green and went to the 8th tee. Thus the lesson began.... I took a video of Ian's swing and when I got home...

    My best golf photo attached here...

    EClark - take a chance eClark... you ought to check it out. You would be surprised by the amount of open space preserves throughout the area. When I went, I was blown away by how much land is off-limits. Beautiful mountain areas, both with Redwoods and without, with abundent wildlife, and...

    How Much of It Is Mental?

    It's a lot mental Okay, my example. Yesterday I went to walk 9 at the muni. Got a phone call from a client that didn't go well. My head wasn't in the game at all and I played horribly even though lately I've been playing really solid. The best advice I can give is what I try to remember (and...

    whatcha think?

    There are leaders, and there are people who merely hold the title of "leader". They aren't the same. I, too, have at one point worked for a company where "yes" men got promoted. The CEO ended up getting fired, the company lost almost all it's accounts, they laid off 80% of the staff and are...

    Do you think too much practice is sometimes bad.

    I love the range.... I'll go hit balls almost every day, either on the range or take a shag bag to the university and hit some. Usually, I'm working on one specific thing. Yesterday I was working on my wedges, the other day it was long irons. However, there have been sessions where I leave...

    Should have used a 9 iron!

    Notice that the attacks (I briefly browsed through the list) were where the person was invading the alligator's territory. They are territorial animals and like all wild animals will attack if they feel threatened. I was simply stating that alligators, in general, are not going to come out the...

    whatcha think?

    Since I'm a CEO, I wanted to put my .02 in. I have no respect for suck-ups, ass-kissers, and yes-men. If a guy takes a dive thinking he's going to suck up to me, he's done for advancement with me. If he was to throw a game with me, then how would I know that he wouldn't roll on me if he thought...

    Wrist Action

    It's a question of "when" Yes, you need to hinge your wrists. That stores up power. I videoed Ian Poulter at The Masters and it's very clear how much hinge he maintains on his downswing (at the top it's 42deg, when his arm is parallel to the ground it's 67 deg, near impact it's still 127deg --...

    Should have used a 9 iron!

    Gators and such Having been aroung gators for about 30 years I've learned a few things: 1) Alligators don't eat adults. They are ambush predators that go for something they can take in one bite (i.e. birds, small dogs, small children). 2) Ignore #1 if it is a female and there is a nest -...

    I've finally been caught!

    Sandbaggers - old school style At a local club, if you go out in mid-week you will see the old guys playing off the black tees. It takes them 5 to just hit the green. Then on the tournament that is played off the Senior tees, they post their score with their handicap based off the black tees...

    The putting Thread.

    My latest putting development Long time since posting - new baby in the house. Anyway, I've been working on my green reading because I had been missing putts like crazy. So here's what I did: 1) Found a putting green that had some really tough breaks on it. Found the hardest spot and put a...

    Good Story. Great Remedy.

    Bike shorts or Lycra shorts underneath everything else works great. I used to adventure race and we did everything in bike shorts because they are build to keep the lycra in place and they breath really well. Just put regular shorts on top (you don't wear underwear with bike shorts) and it's all...

    Phil wins

    I never gave Tiger accolades for not playing for second. I don't think Sean should have been playing for 2nd. I think he made a foolish play. The right line with the wrong club is still the wrong shot. It was a gutsy move, but a foolish one neverless. Sure, when you are behind you must attack...
